After persuading Sakumo, Ryo teleported to the Senju Clan residence. He dragged Tsunade into this matter even before having her consent. Now, he braced himself to meet her.
Tsunade was working with Shizune to study the White Zetsu cell that Ryo had brought to her. His sudden appearance surprised both of them.
“Ryo-sama, can you please teleport at the door next time?” Shizune said, dissatisfied.
“I’m sorry! I need to speak with Tsunade-sama alone about something urgent.”
Hearing this, Tsunade frowned, “What is it? What kind of trouble have you caused this time?”
Ryo told her all about his conversation with Sakumo and his plans. After listening to Ryo’s plan, Tsunade’s expression became serious. “Boy, don’t you think your idea is too crazy? We shouldn’t involve the civilians.”
“Tsunade-sama, you’ve seen how good the new medical ninja system we implemented in the past two years. But the Konoha Hospital has not fully accepted it yet, let alone somewhere else. If we want the village to accept our new system, they have to know the importance of the medical ninja system. The Chunin Exam is a good opportunity.”
“But civilians are different from Ninja. Ninja’s battles are too terrifying for them. I don’t think they could resist it; they could be dead before we can even treat them.”
Knowing her concerns, Ryo immediately said, “Tsunade-sama, please rest easy. I will enter Sage Mode at that time to strengthen my senses. Once I sense someone in danger, I’ll rescue them myself.”
Tsunade was a little tempted to do it if the civilians’ safety was guaranteed. Ryo’s plan wasn’t that bad. Thinking of this, Tsunade once again asked, “Boy, can you really guarantee that the villagers would be safe?”
Ryo nodded, “Un! I promise! With my Chakra volume, I can create enough Shadow Clone Jutsu. I can teleport anywhere within the village with my time and space Ninjutsu. Tsunade-sama, please put your faith in me!”
“Alright! It’s a bit crazy, but I’ll help! Boy, I hope you can keep your promise!!”
“Thank you, Tsunade-sama!”
After obtaining Tsunade’s consent, Ryo teleported to Orochimaru’s base.
‘Base’ is a bit inappropriate. After years developing this place, Orochimaru had built a complete Ninja Village on this base.
And it was recognized by the Land of Rice Field’s Daimyo. Last year, the Daimyo officially acknowledged Otogakure’s existence.
Becoming the village’s leader, Orochimaru had to deal with Otogakure matters. There wasn’t much to attend to in the first few months, but eventually, he was tired.
Now, he had given the authority to Anko and Yugao. He became a shopkeeper instead and became addicted to researching every day.
When Ryo teleported to Otogakure, he stumbled upon Anko, who took him to Orochimaru’s laboratory. These days, Orochimaru was doing his best to study Kekkei Genkai disease partly because Kimimaro and Orochimaru were interested in it.
When Orochimaru changed his body last time, he wondered whether he could add the Kekkei Genkai Ninja gene to his clone so that he could also become a Nikke of Kekkei Genkai.
Thus, Orochimaru deliberately took many blood samples from the Kekkei Genkai Ninja in Otogakure and experimented with it.
Unfortunately, it was too difficult to integrate the genes. He hadn’t progressed much after years of experiment.
He wanted to give up, but Kimimaro, who was always close to him, suddenly got a severe Kekkei Genkai disease, which forced him to pick up his research on Kekkei Genkai Ninja again.
“Uncle, you’re still studying Kekkei Genkai?” Ryo asked.
Orochimaru nodded, “Un! Ryo-kun, what are you doing here?”
“Can’t I just visit you?”
Orochimaru smiled, “Ahaha. I know you visit me when you want something.”
Ryo scratched the back of his head, awkwardly, “Uncle, you saw right through me! Uncle, I want you to let Otogakure take the Chunin Exam for a few days.”
“Chunin Exam? Why?” Orochimaru stopped what he was doing and gazed at the man.
“That’s… I have a plan, so I need your help to stop the other villages.”
“Okay, but what are you going to do with Konoha? I don’t want Otogakure to collide with them.”
“Uncle, please rest assured. I’ll solve Iwagakure’s trouble. The reason why I did this is to make them think we haven’t discovered their plans, so they will act smoothly.” Ryo promised.
“Hmm… Now that you mention that, I’ll help you. We’ll depart there as soon as we get an invitation from Konoha.”
“Yosh! Thank you, Uncle!” After that, Ryo’s silhouette disappeared.
“Time and space Ninjutsu is really convenient.” Anko was feeling envious.
“Haven’t you met Namikaze Minato? It turns out that you don’t have the innate talent of that Ninjutsu, so don’t think about it.” Orochimaru said lightly.
Hearing this, Anko glared at Orochimaru, “Sensei! I hate you!” She turned around and left.
“Konoha, huh? I haven’t returned for years. I wonder how Sarutobi sensei is doing?” Orochimaru mumbled to himself.
At the same time, Kakashi left Konoha with Zabuza and Haku, both of their Chakra was sealed. They traveled rather slowly.
Ryo happened to see them when they returned. “Kakashi, should I escort you to the Country of Water?” Ryo spoke, glancing at Haku.
Kakashi pondered but later agreed. “Well, it would save us some time.”
“Alright, close your eyes, I’ll send you over there.”
Kakashi and Yuki Haku closed their eyes, but Zabuza refused to cooperate. Ryo didn’t bother with his refusal and teleported the three people to the Country of Water.
In the blink of an eye, they arrived at the Country of Water. Kakashi and Haku, who closed their eyes during the teleportation, opened their eyes with ease.
While Zabuza, who refused to cooperate, was in a daze.
“Kakashi, I’ll leave them to you. It’s too troublesome to wait, so I’ll head back first.”
“Un! Just return to the village. Please take care of Naruto in the next few days.”
“Yosh! Leave it to me!”
