Chapter 340: The Atmosphere Gradually Eased a Lot
Orochimaru really wanted to kill Kabuto.
Kabuto, who had once been his assistant and was not qualified to become a Living Corpse Reincarnation container, was actually pushing him to a dead end today.
Kabuto, this bastard…
His only worth was to help him dig up graves and steal corpses!
Now, this guy really feels that he has become stronger and wants to turn over and be the master. He even dares to force him, his former superior, to be an experimental subject…
Orochimaru’s expression gradually became serious. He stared at Kabuto’s movements and asked, “What if I refuse to agree to your cooperation?”
“Dead without a burial place.”
Kabuto spread out his palm and sighed softly, “Orochimaru, I can sell you out right now so that you can attract the attention of the five big countries…
Moreover, Naraku-sama also thinks that I am loyal to you now. Maybe he is going to Ryuchi Cave to find trouble with you. You have no other way, Orochimaru-sama.”
Orochimaru’s eyes became slightly sharp. His eyes stared at the smiling Kabuto, and there was a trace of sinister and murderous intent in his voice, “Aren’t you afraid that after I become the Juubi Jinchuriki… I will kill you?”
Kabuto smiled and shook his head. He calmly said, “I received Obito’s Mangekyo Sharingan from Naraku-sama… No matter how strong Orochimaru-sama is, I am confident that I can survive.”
After Kabuto said this, he pushed up his glasses again and said, “I always like to think about everything carefully before I implement the plan… This is why Orochimaru-sama lost to Naraku-sama, but I will successfully get rid of Naraku-sama.”
Orochimaru nodded and said in a cold voice, “Kabuto, after so many years, you have really grown a lot!”
“This is all thanks to Orochimaru-sama’s teaching.”
Kabuto smiled and said, “If our experiment succeeds, I won’t mind submitting to Orochimaru-sama again.”
After saying that, Kabuto smiled and continued, “I’m not joking… After all, the Sage of the Six Paths strength is worthy of respect. Although that power is strong, it might not be able to threaten me.”
Orochimaru nodded silently.
After thinking for a while, Orochimaru looked at Kabuto and said, “I agree to your conditions. Let me enjoy my new body first!”
The smile on Kabuto’s face was full of joy.
The corner of Orochimaru’s eyes twitched slightly as he slowly closed his palm. The body of the eight-headed snake began to shrink rapidly.
This eight-headed snake turned into a small white snake in just a few seconds. It suddenly scuttled towards White Zetsu and drilled into its mouth!
White Zetsu’s body stiffened for a second.
In the next moment, the appearance of this White Zetsu gradually changed.
Just from its appearance alone, this White Zetsu and Orochimaru’s past appearances were already seventy to eighty percent similar. It was clear that Orochimaru had succeeded in seizing White Zetsu’s body.
Orochimaru felt the power in his body with satisfaction. He nodded and said, “White Zetsu is indeed the most suitable container…”
In addition to the chakra in his body, Orochimaru also felt the two strange Bloodline Limits in his body. One of them was naturally Wood Release Bloodline Limit.
The other was his eyes.
At this moment, Orochimaru’s eyes were already a pair of Rinnegan. This pair of eyes carefully sized up his body. Obviously, he could not be more satisfied with this body.
Kabuto looked at Orochimaru’s eyes; he smiled and continued, “If Orochimaru-sama is satisfied, then we will begin to extract Hachibi’s chakra and Fourth Hokage’s Kyuubi chakra!”
Orochimaru took a deep look at Kabuto and softly said, “But I still need time to familiarize myself with Rinnegan power…”
“There is no need for that.”
Kabuto shook his head calmly, and the smile on his face deepened, “As long as Orochimaru-sama uses the Summoning Technique to summon Gedo Mazo, I will teach Orochimaru the technique to draw the Bijuu chakra into Gedo Mazo…”
After saying that, Kabuto said, “Oh, right, Orochimaru-sama, remember to cooperate. Do not waste each other’s time.
I almost forgot to tell you. Although Naraku-sama failed to control First Hokage-sama, he defeated First Hokage, who was close to his peak by himself!
Even if Orochimaru-sama has the power of the Rinnegan and Gedo Mazo, you can barely defeat me, let alone defeat Naraku-sama?”
Kabuto looked at Orochimaru and said word by word, “Orochimaru-sama, only by becoming the Sage of the Six Paths can you defeat him.”
“… I will cooperate with you.”
Orochimaru’s eyes narrowed slightly. At this moment, his expression was somewhat similar to Uehara’s, “Because compared to what you did to me, what that bastard Uehara did make me feel a bone-deep hatred!”
That bastard Uehara!
In the past few years, Orochimaru recalled every bit of his memories with Uehara. That bastard seemed to be bullying him every time they met!
That bastard had almost forced him into a predicament!
Especially in the past few years, that bastard had completely exposed his shameless face showing that he had actually been toying with him!
Orochimaru turned to look at Kabuto and slowly closed his palm. He opened his mouth and made a hand seal, “Kuchiyose! Gedo Mazo!”
Kuchiyose – Gedo Mazo was the most basic ability of the Rinnegan.
Even if they couldn’t develop the power hidden within the Rinnegan, they could use the simplest method to directly summon Gedo Mazo, this kind of illogical summoned creature, to fight.
The huge Gedo Mazo appeared in front of them in the next moment!
Orochimaru felt the chakra within Gedo Mazo’s body, and his Rinnegan flashed with a radiance of infatuation, “Truly terrifying, just the seven Bijuu’s chakra inside is almost unparalleled…”
A satisfied expression finally appeared on Orochimaru’s face, “Kabuto, perhaps you are right. As long as we revive Gedo Mazo and let me become the Juubi Jinchuriki, perhaps I can really grasp the power of the legendary Sage of the Six Paths!”
Kabuto smiled and continued, “In fact, becoming a Juubi Jinchuriki is not particularly dangerous, as long as you are determined enough… And I can remind Orochimaru-sama that the Juubi Jinchuriki is an existence that can live forever!”
Orochimaru’s eyes widened in an instant.
Obviously, immortality was more attractive to him. Why did he work so hard for so many years? Wasn’t it just for immortality?
Orochimaru slowly turned his head and looked at Kabuto. He said, “Can such a thing really be done? Even the legendary Sage of the Six Paths has an end in his life…”
“I found out the secret from Akatsuki.”
Kabuto did not refute. He softly said, “Whether or not Jinchuriki can live forever depends on the specific situation… But without a doubt, if Jinchuriki can master all the ninjutsu in the world, it is absolutely possible!”
Kabuto looked at Gedo Mazo, and his voice gradually became a bit apologetic, “Nine Bijuu’s chakra can completely let Orochimaru-sama use any ninjutsu… This can also be considered to have fulfilled Orochimaru-sama’s original dream.”
Orochimaru was silent for a while.
At this moment, the atmosphere between the two of them gradually eased a lot.
Although Kabuto forced Orochimaru to use his life to try to become Juubi Jinchuriki, if he really succeeded, it would also allow him to obtain great power.
Kabuto even remembered Orochimaru’s dream in the past.
After a while, Orochimaru slowly nodded and said, “Alright, I understand. Let’s begin now!”
After he finished speaking, a smile appeared on Orochimaru’s lips, “The five big countries and Uehara, they must be waiting for me to meet them!”
“Yes, the entire Ninja World is waiting for your return.”
A hint of respect appeared on Kabuto’s face. He lowered his head and smiled, “No, or rather, the entire Ninja World is waiting for their master to rule them.”
“Hmph, that’s right.”
Orochimaru snorted and smiled, “Then let’s begin! Let’s send Hachibi into Gedo Mazo first!”
Kabuto waved his hand.
Obito, who was standing behind him, opened a space-time vortex. The figure of Hachibi Jinchuriki Killer Bee fell from the space-time vortex to the ground.
Orochimaru narrowed his eyes slightly and slowly closed his palm, “When I revive the Juubi and become the Sage of the Six Paths, I must take back everything that I lost from that bastard Uehara!”
Kabuto nodded and pushed up his glasses.
Obito, Minato, and Tobirama did not speak because someone controlled their bodies behind the scenes.
Thousands of miles away, inside Amegakure.
Uehara slowly put down his finger.
Through the few Impure World Reincarnated Ninjas he controlled, Uehara saw everything that happened between Kabuto and Orochimaru.
“Kabuto, this guy’s acting is not bad…”
The corners of Uehara’s mouth curled up, and he chuckled, “Even though I know that what Kabuto said is false. But after listening for a while, I still feel that he is telling the truth… This feeling is a little subtle!”
But since everything was going according to plan, there was no need to worry about it.
What Uehara needed to do next was to take the group of people from Akatsuki’s organization to join the gathering of the Allied Shinobi Forces… Orochimaru, the enemy, was about to arrive. As the Regimental Commander of the Allied Shinobi Forces, how could he be late!
Six Path Orochimaru…
What an enemy to look forward to!
