Hokage Ryo’s Path Chapter 389, Obito and Rin.
That night, Yamanaka Ryoo took Obito and teleported to Hokage Rock. Overlooking the village’s calm night view. Obito’s anxious heart finally calmed down.
Then, they went to Ichiraku Ramen together. This was the first time Obito took off his mask for so many years. There’s not much change with the ramen, except the familiar Boss now had a lovely daughter.
When Obito ate his noodles, Teuchi, the restaurant owner, sneaked a glance towards him before finally asked, “Ryo, he looked familiar. Have we met before?”
Ryo laughed. “He came to this village when he was young, maybe you saw him around that time. Back then, he loved your ramen!”
“I see! An old customer! Then, I’ll give an extra bowl to an old customer!”
Obviously, Obito didn’t decline, “Thank you very much!”
After dinner, Ryo and Obito teleported to Uchiha residence.
After the Uchiha clan’s problem with the village was solved, they moved back to their original place. However, having lost most of their clan members, the Uchiha clan looked a bit distant.
They strolled around the area before reaching Obito’s home. To his surprise, his house was squeaky clean, not a single speck of dust was seen anywhere. It seemed someone had cleaned this place.
Knowing what he was thinking about, Ryo said, “It’s Rin. She came here to clean your house. If Konoha Hospital isn’t busy, she will come here from time to time to clean your house.”
“Konoha Hospital? Is she being treated there?”
“Well, Tsunade-sama made her apprentice a couple of years ago. With Tsunade-sama’s guidance, Rin became a medical ninja. Now she’s one of the top medical ninjas in this village.” Ryo briefly explained the situation.
“So that means, Rin…”
“Obito, why don’t you visit her yourself? There’s no point in asking all of it to me.” After speaking, Ryo took Obito to teleport to his own office in Konoha Hospital.
“Ryo, is this Konoha Hospital?”
“Yes, it’s my office. Rin is next door, I’ll call her for you.”
As soon as he heard that, Obito tensed up, “Wait a minute! Ryo! I… I’m not ready yet!”
“What? Run has been waiting for years just for you. What are you afraid of? You wait here, I’ll call her.”
Yamanaka Ryo opened the door and left. Leaving Obito alone in his office. Moments later, he took Rin to his office.
Rin looked down, carrying a case, and asked, “What do you want? God, I’m busy! As a dean, you’re never really here, so I fill in your works.”
Rin’s complaint made Ryo blushed. He coughed twice to interrupt her words, “Ahem, ahem. Rin, there’s someone I want you to meet.”
“Someone to meet? Who was…” Rin choked the words as her glance swept towards Obito.
“Ah!!” Rin was delighted to see the restless figure nearby, the case slipped from her hand.
“Obito! Is it really you?!”
“Un! It’s me, Rin.” After all these years, they were happy to be reunited again. Tears burst out from Rin’s eyes as she ran towards Obito and hugged him tightly. Obito hesitated but eventually hugged her back. Seeing this, Ryo laughed and quietly left the office. Leaving some privacy for them both.
The two hugged for a long time before they separated. Smiling, Rin looks at Obito, “Obito, I miss you so much.”
“Un? Obito, what’s wrong?” Noticing his slight change of expression, Rin asked.
After a moment of silence, Obito spoke, “I’m sorry, Rin! I forgot about you!”
“Forgot? What happened, Obito?” Rin quickly asked.
Obito didn’t hesitate and told her everything. After hearing Obito’s story, Rin was a bit distressed.
“Obito, it’s all over now. You have your memories back, isn’t that what matters the most?”
“But… I killed Minato sensei. I killed a lot of people! I was the one provoking the Uchiha clan and Konoha’s conflict! Is it really okay for me to come back?” In front of Rin, Obito expressed his concerns and anxiety.
“Of course you can, Obito! Ryo had brought you back, right?”
“Can I really?”
“Obito, trust me, trust Ryo.”
Rin’s words brought peace to Obito’s heart.
After that, Obito asked about what she’s been doing over the years. Previously, Ryo just told him about Rin learning from Tsunade-sama. He didn’t tell him specific information. Rin started talking about the details she had been through over the years to Obito. They chatted all night long.
To prevent Black and White Zetsu from suspecting, the next morning, Ryo took Obito away from Konoha and back to Amegakure.
Before they parted ways, Obito said solemnly, “Rin, wait for me to come back.”
Rin didn’t say anything. She nodded as she watched the two men leave.
In the blink of an eye, they returned to Amegakure.
After making sure there were no traces of Black and White Zetsu, Ryo spoke with Obito. “Relax, they’re not here yet.”
Hearing this, Obito was relieved. He bowed down to Ryo, “Ryo! Thank you!”
Ryo glanced at Obit and said, “Don’t thank me, I made you stay with Madara. It’s my fault that a seal was planted in you.”
“Ryo, it’s my choice. You’re not wrong. The situation was out of your control. So, what are you going to do now?”
Ryo’s expression tensed. “Obito, since we already got this far, stay here with your ‘Madara'”.
Hearing this, Obito’s expression changed. “Ryo, do you want me to release the Mugen Tsukuyomi?”
Ryo nodded, “That’s right.”
“But Mugen Tsukuyomi is a Genjutsu to get everyone inside it. The peace created by this Jutsu is fake.”
“Obito, it’s not an ordinary Genjutsu. It’s the key to wake up the sleeping Princess.”
Then, Ryo told Obito about Rikudou Sennin, his brother, and Kaguya.
Obito grew restless.
