Chapter 47: Kimimaro, Do You Want to Search for Food In The Trash Together!
The sound of fighting slowly faded away.
Kakashi didn’t have time to search for Obito’s trail since he and Yukimi ran into another person blocking their route.
Kakashi moved Yukimi behind him to protect her and squeezed his ninja sword tightly. He gazed at the ninja who stopped them with caution, “Orochimaru…”
“What a coincidence, Kakashi-kun!”
Orochimaru couldn’t help but chuckle and lick his lips. Since he completed his Living Corpse Reincarnation and defected to the Akatsuki, he began to search for suitable containers within Ninja World.
He used Danzo to send Kabuto back to Konoha and asked Kabuto to find a couple of young genius ninja by participating in Chunin Exams.
In addition, Orochimaru also rushed to the Land of Water, wanting to find some youngsters with Kekkei Genkai there.
Thus, Orochimaru would not miss the excitement that happened in Kirigakure today.
It just so happened that Orochimaru met a youngster suitable as his reincarnation container. He found the youngster’s eyes pleasing, and he had the Shikotsumyaku Kekkei Genkai in his blood.
If the youngster with the Shikotsumyaku Kekkei Genaki managed to escape from the Kirigakure and get to him alive, Orochimaru intended to bring him back to his base as an alternative container.
As a result, while Orochimaru waited eagerly, he noticed Kakashi near the Kirigakure.
It was so troublesome…
Orochimaru practically never saw ninjas from his home village, but he didn’t feel like saying hello!
Orochimaru looked at Kakashi and Yukimi behind him, remembering that Kakashi had saved Yamato from him, and a smile flashed through his eyes, “Oh, Kakashi-kun, performing another rescue already?”
Kakashi ignored him. Sweat was pouring down his face as he nervously asked, “Orochimaru… why are you here in the Land of Water right now!”
“Shouldn’t I ask Kakashi-kun the same question?”
Orochimaru spread out his hands and announced, “This is the Land of Water. Konoha’s ninja shouldn’t be here!”
Kakashi’s heart sank as he paid close attention to Orochimaru’s movements. He reached out and pushed up his ninja headband, “No matter which country it is, but I still managed to encounter the most dangerous Missing-nin from our village. It seems to me like I can’t let you go anymore!”
This man was his Heart Demon!
Ever since Orochimaru defected, Kakashi had been on his trail. He had met many meddlesome people in the middle, which only made Kakashi hate Orochimaru even more.
“Ha, shouldn’t be the most dangerous Missing-nin of the village Itachi-san?”
Orochimaru laughed aloud, staring at Kakashi, “If we fight here, it will attract the Kirigakure’s ninja. I don’t care, but the little girl behind you will have a hard time surviving, right?”
Kakashi fell silent.
Since Yukimi rescued him earlier, he certainly couldn’t leave Yukimi to start a life-or-death fight. He could only passively defend and refrain from shooting at the rat for fear of breaking the vases.
Now for Yukimi’s sake, Kakashi had to find a way to escape first.
Orochimaru seemed to be aware of Kakashi’s thoughts and said with a slight smile on his face, “Don’t worry, I’m not here to settle anything with you. You should stay with me until the container I want returns. Let’s chat for a while!”
Orochimaru must have a mental disorder!
One of them was one of Konoha’s Ninjas, and the other was Konoha’s most wanted Missing-nin. How could they talk peacefully, especially in such a dangerous place near the Kirigakure?
Orochimaru glanced at Kakashi and continued looking towards Kirigakure, which was gradually calming down below. The youngster he wanted to take away seemed to have missed his chance to come back.
Orochimaru didn’t realize that the container he wanted was with Uehara.
Uehara and Kisame collected Haku first and then met Zabuza and Mangetsu outside the Kirigakure. Along the way, they also met another white-haired youngster who had escaped from the Kirigakure.
The youngster was tightly gripping a bone spike in his hand and looked nervously at the large group of people in front of him.
Uehara frowned, looked at the familiar youngster in front of him, and asked in a low voice, “Is he one of the Kaguya Clan who attacked Kirigakure just now?”
“That’s right. “
Zabuza nodded and looked at the white-haired youngster, “This little kid must be a fish that escaped the net. Let me kill him!”
When the white-haired youngster heard Zabuza’s words, his face changed color. Holding onto the bone spike in his hand, he rushed up first!
It was wishful thinking to want to defeat Zabuza with his strength, even more so since he had just escaped out of the Kirigakure, which meant his physical strength and Chakra were far from optimal.
Zabuza quickly sliced apart the bone spike of the white-haired youngster with Kubikiribocho and raised his sword to kill him!
Uehara stopped Zabuza, then he walked to the white-haired youngster and asked aloud, “What is your name?”
The white-haired youngster was speaking very little and very slowly.
Uehara’s eyes brightened, and he didn’t expect to meet Kaguya Kimimaro as he escaped from the Land of Water. He thought that Kimimaro had been taken away by Orochimaru long ago!
Uehara looked at the white-haired youngster and whispered, “All your clansmen have been killed. Where are you going now?”
Kimimaro lowered his head and hesitated for a while before replied in a low voice, “I don’t know, now… I have nothing.”
Kimimaro had always been living alone by himself. Even among his clansmen, he had been imprisoned and used as a weapon by his clansmen. Despite that, Kimimaro had always believed that the cage that imprisoned him was his home and treated the clansmen in charge of guarding him as family.
The Kaguya Clan had been wiped out in the civil war within the Kirigakure. So Kimimaro was now free, but he had also lost everything, even the reason he existed.
Uehara thought of Kimimaro’s short life, and the Kekkei Genkai disease in his body subconsciously opened his mouth and said, “You have nothing… Are you still sick?”
As soon as he said this, Uehara regretted it himself.
Everyone who heard Uehara Naraku’s words cast suspicious glances at Uehara. What kind of devil’s rhetoric was this?
Kimimaro reacted differently from them. He looked at Uehara Naraku in amazement, “You… how did you know?”
Uehara’s expression was slightly embarrassed.
Fortunately, next to Uehara, Haku pulled his arm for fear that he would say something inappropriate.
As an orphan in the Land of Water, he understood Kimimaro’s struggle. He looked at Kimimaro and invited him, “Kimimaro, then you can join Uehara and me. We can go to the garbage dump together to find food. We can make money and live together…”
The confusion in Kimimaro’s eyes gradually subsided, and his gaze towards Haku gradually became more enthusiastic, “Can I… stay with you?”
Haku, who was quite cute, was also really friendly.
At least, when Kimimaro saw Haku’s appearance, he faintly felt a sense of trust.
Haku stopped his answer, turned his head, and looked towards Uehara, “Uehara, can we bring Kimimaro with us when we leave?”
Fortunately, he also knew who was in charge of the team.
Uehara was silent for a while and sighed, “Of course, but please stop saying that we live in a garbage dump…”
