The three of them split up and searched a hundred steps away from their direction, and for Akabane, he wandered casually then arrived at a small river.
The Uzumaki Village was surrounded by rivers. That way, the Hidden Mist’s ninja could escape easily through the rivers.
Akabane approached the river, looking for the remaining traces.
Not far away, there was a rustling sound of bushes.
What is it? Animal or…
He was puzzled and approached cautiously, so he didn’t startle it.
As he got closer, Akabane saw a blue cloth flashed through the bushes.
Hidden Mist’s ninja!
He was caught off guard, but at the same time, he felt something strange.
What is that person doing?
Walking silently on the ground, he cast hand seals.
Earth Release: Headhunting Jutsu.
Under the ground, the sounds of movement from above became clearer.
Just before Akabane drags him to the ground, the ninja seemed to be picking up something.
Without any warning, he quickly launched an attack.
The ground cracked, his hand grab the rebel’s leg and drag him to the ground.
His voice rang out in the quiet forest.
The other two seemed to notice the voice and rushed toward the source immediately.
When they arrived at the scene, they saw Akabane’s clone was placing a kunai on the rebel’s throat, while the real Akabane was washing his hands by the river with a disgust expression.
“What’s the situation?”
Orochimaru was slightly faster than Tsunade and reached Akabane first.
Akabane rubbed his hands vigorously, sighed, and said, “It’s hard to put the words, just look over there…”
After hearing this, he turned to look at the rebel.
“You… you are Konoha’s ninjas!”
The rebel looked at them, ashamed.
Who the hell a Chuunin like him easily beaten by a kid.
But he didn’t dare to say another word after reminding his position.
“Did you just catch a live Hidden Mist’s ninja!?”
Tsunade was baffled, seeing the Hidden Mist’s ninja stuck on the ground.
“He was busy doing something, and Akabane took the chance.”
Orochimaru calmly explained the situation.
“Yeah, it was thanks to Jiraiya’s work…”
Akabane added, while still rubbing his arms with water vigorously.
His hands didn’t touch those, but the thought of it alone made him goosebumps. If he weren’t on the outside, he would immediately take a long bath.
The most depressing thing is that this rebel is treasured such a thing
That is absurd!
This is an insult to the arts!
“What do you mean?”
Tsunade was confused when she heard it.
“I mean… ahh, have you seen a white-haired kid?”
Akabane didn’t want to explain it much more and turned his attention to ask the captive rebel.
“No…no, as a matter of fact we are currently looking for him too.”
The rebel explained.
“Next question, where is your gathering point?”
“I won’t say that otherwise, the leader will kill me!”
He said in fear.
“Your life is in our hands. Yes, your leader might want to kill you, but I’ll assure you that we will do it first before him.”
Orochimaru licked his lips.
By the rebel’s words, at least it means that the enemy is organized, and a leader is leading them.
“If you don’t say it, I will emasculate you.”
Akabane threatened viciously.
There was a look of fear on the rebel’s face, if he is going to be emasculated, then what is the point of living.. but when he thought about what the leader will do to him, he immediately shut his mouth.
“It seems that there is only one way.”
As soon as the voice fell, Akabane’s clone, whose holding the kunai slit his throat viciously.
After a scream of despair, he found himself still alive, Akabane appeared in front of him.
“Can you tell me now?”
Akabane’s voice rang in his ears.
“I won’t say anything.”
He still had some doubts in mind. As a result, he immediately died once more.
Endless death illusion, but all the pain that he went through is real as if he already died a dozen times.
Painful, endless torture.
“W..What kind of genjutsu is this…?”
Even as a Chuunin, he never encounters an enemy with this terrifying genjutsu.
“Kurama’s Five Senses of Control.”
Akabane said faintly, “I am still a kid, and I haven’t polished this ninjutsu well enough. That being said, I will use you as my guinea pig.”
“No! Not again! Just kill me already!!”
When he heard the word “Kurama,” his heart trembled in fear.
Only someone with extreme talent will acquire it. For example, this time, Akabane used Hell Viewing Jutsu, but all the pain was transferred with the five senses of control that made it all felt real.
The Kurama’s successor of this talent is a nightmare to face on the battlefield, and after he experienced it himself, he knew that Akabane is more terrifying than any other.
“Killing you gain me nothing, rest assured, if calculated it and it took at least a hundred of death to hurt your real body, so… how many were now?”
Akabane’s eyes were cold and full of killing intent.
“Okay! Okay! I’ll spill it out!”
“Our hideout is on the mountain on the upper reaches of the river. There is a cave there. We…”
He was so terrified that his explaining it while stuttered. The information came out like beans.
“If I know that you lied to me, I’ll double your torture!”
Akabane said, directly letting the clone to stunned the rebel with the kunai’s handle.
At this moment, he saw Orochimaru and Tsunade looking at him in horror.
“What’s the matter?”
Orochimaru complained secretly in his heart but didn’t know where to start.
Tsunade took a deep breath and carefully asked, “If you can control it, will it leave a wound after a hundred of death?”
“I was just bluffing, and no, it will not leave any wound, only the trauma will remain.”
Akabane shooked his head.
“If I’m not mistaken, you used the Hell Viewing Jutsu?”
Hell Viewing Jutsu can also be combined with the Five Senses of Control?
“Yeah, but I’m still doing a trial and error.”
Akabane nodded and explained, and at the same time, winked at the shadow clone, indicating that he would take the person back to the Uzumaki Village.
In this situation, living prisoners are far more useful than corpses.
Orochimaru listened and couldn’t help but sighed.
He had recently asked Hiruzen about the Five Senses of Control, so he knew some of its details.
The Five Senses of Control is indeed strong, but the clan’s awakening rate is very low. From their first generation to the present, the awakener of the Kekkei Genkai can be counted by one hand.
The combination of an ordinary genjutsu and the Five Senses of Control is something that only Akabane can do even among his predecessor.
“As expected of Akaba-Kun!” Orochimaru was shocked, and at the same time thought another thing
Akabane’s slacking attitude might be an act to hide his hard time practicing ninjutsu.
Coincidentally, Tsunade also had this suspicion.
When Akabane saw their expressions, he knew that they seemed to have some misunderstanding of him.
The predecessor of the Kurama Clan has tried it far long before him, but they found that the fusion couldn’t transfer the pain into reality. Thus they’ve changed their research into something applicative and simpler.
Therefore, Akabane’s method is only to imitate part of the effect of the Genjutsu with his Kekkei Genkai.
However, seeing the shocked look on their faces, Akabane decided not to say a word.
