Orochimaru’s Magic Lamp - Chapter 396
Chapter 396 Extra Story: Ten Years
The Kingdom of the Wind, a corner of the desert.
Huang Shalie, galloping in the strong wind, gradually opened a khaki curtain that was visible but intangible.
The middle-aged man with broad ears narrowed his eyes slightly and quickly lowered his head.
Face, neck, arms…all the skin not covered by clothing, feel the tingling of the skin more and more. But he was not in a hurry, his hands slowly but steadily formed a few handprints.
Weak chakra fluctuations spread to the surroundings, and a dozen people around him immediately sank into the desert cave together with him.
In the dimness, the entourage turned on the electric light. The middle-aged man confirmed that the breathing hole was working normally. Then he breathed a sigh of relief, stretched out a hand, and pressed the somewhat chapped skin.
“Banchang, I haven’t encountered such a big sandstorm for a long time…”
One of the companions opened his mouth, but his tone was not one of rejoicing that he escaped from death, but with some kind of novel and interesting meaning. The others also had a sympathetic expression. Under the flickering lights, they invariably raised the atmosphere, He began to gossip enthusiastically.
The man known as “Ban Chang” did not join the discussion of the crowd, but leaned against the rock wall, put one ear on it, and tried to listen to the outside world.
However, although ‘responsibility’ and ‘professionalism’ kept him vigilant at this time, in fact, he agreed with what he just said in his heart.
In the past few years, to be precise, it started from the year when many dead people were revived in the form of souls.
Ten years ago, sandstorms of this magnitude would have been commonplace for every resident of the Land of Winds. Turbans, veils, etc. are never left. But now, even an old hand like him would be caught off guard and appear a little unprepared.
Many thoughts flashed in his mind. The middle-aged man leaned against the rock wall and listened silently to the movement outside. After about a quarter of an hour, he stood up and said to the people in front of him, “The sandstorm has stopped.”
Actually, the sandstorm has not stopped, but the deadliest one, as well as the thunderous roar, have subsided.
In the cave, the talking and laughing stopped suddenly, but a kind of anxiety permeated the silent atmosphere.
Not worried about the outside environment, but doing something wrong and worrying about the next punishment.
In this atmosphere, everyone packed their luggage in an orderly manner, and then the ‘Banchang’ launched ninjutsu.
This ability that allows them to move quickly in the sand layer is only the weakest D-level ninjutsu in the ninjutsu encyclopedia issued by the Alliance of Nations, but even so, not everyone can use it.
At least one unit of Chakra must be forged.
The reason why a middle-aged man can learn ninjutsu and become a chief is because he has a daughter who became a ninja, and the first batch of people came into contact with the knowledge spread by the Ninja Alliance.
Soon, a group of more than a dozen people returned to the ground again. Most of the wind and sand above their heads had subsided, and the sun was dimly falling.
In this direction, a large expanse of bright greenery shines.
Yellow sand, storm… and this color that symbolizes vitality are originally the most inappropriate, but everyone is not surprised by this.
They knew very well that these were not normal plants, but a creature called a fungus.
These plants promoted by the alliance a few years ago have extremely strong vitality. Even in the harsh and cruel environment of the desert, they can grow tenaciously and gradually form an… ecosystem with bacteria as the core chain (seems to be this phrase).
With the water source, other life will naturally not lack the living space of human beings…
Of course, bacteria with so many benefits also have many disadvantages. The most troublesome thing is the accumulation of a large number of bacteria, which can easily give birth to terrifying things… The shape is the same as that of the resurrected dead back then, but without The memory of the previous life, and the shackles of one’s own emotions, the newborn spirit will instinctively start to devour and grow.
Whether it’s the spirituality in the bacteria, or the souls of other creatures… they are all the resources of this monster. In the early days of the alliance, there were more than a dozen…disasters caused by this, with more than a thousand direct casualties. It is more than a medium-sized war in the past.
Fortunately, the characteristics of the bacteria breeding evil spirits are obvious. Under normal circumstances, even ordinary people can interrupt their destruction.
’Ban Chang’ and his staff, as the gardeners in charge of managing this fungus nursery, have successfully aborted the monster more than twenty times in the past few years, but this time they encountered a different situation.
In the manual promoted by the alliance, it is clearly marked that the fundamental purpose of the existence of the bacteria is to breed evil spirits. As human beings, they only use this process to transform the environment.
And after a certain number of ‘miscarriages’, the individual strain will give up breeding alone, and form a whole with a certain range of the same kind to breed together.
In this case, ordinary people cannot destroy it, and more professional people are needed.
The middle-aged man came to the center of the nursery, where stood four majestic young men and women, talking and laughing.
The vigor of this young man is enough to make any older person feel envious…and feel ashamed, especially when he knows that the other party surpasses himself in terms of status and ability.
But the middle-aged man met the gaze cast by the other party, and he was relieved in his heart. The yellow-haired young man in the lead is not domineering.
So he spoke first, bowing his head slightly, “I’m very sorry, we didn’t notify the higher up in time, and I have to trouble everyone to fight…”
“Hmph… the latest popular science document, you should read it carefully.”
Before the yellow-haired youth opened his mouth, the companion beside him said coldly, “It is inevitable that bacteria breed spirit bodies, and fighting is only a matter of course. We seem to be angry because of such trivial matters.” Incompetent people?”
But you, just because of these seemingly belittled words, you are furious…
The young man with yellow hair shook his head helplessly, and then looked at the middle-aged man with clear eyes and a warm smile on his face, “As Sasuke said, these are just our duties, you don’t need to worry about it, if it happens before situation, just report to the higher authorities.”
The uneasiness in the middle-aged man’s heart eased a little, and he only heard the yellow-haired boy continue, “And in the future, more strain nurseries will be more inclined to use fighting to solve problems…”
“What does this mean?” A question flashed in the middle-aged man’s mind, but he saw a strange creature climbing on the young man’s shoulder.
The color of its body is like yellow sand, but its appearance is closer to that of a fox. The most peculiar thing is that there are multiple tails wagging behind it, which is obviously not an ordinary creature.
“Nine tails?” The middle-aged man exclaimed, only to realize that the other party only had six tails.
“Huh? This uncle also knows about Nine-Tails? Oh, by the way, there is an introduction to Tailed Beasts in the popular science manual, but this is not Nine-Tails.”
The young man with yellow hair touched the head of the small animal on his shoulder, and said with a smile, “This is a spirit body born in this nursery. If I have to say it, it should be called Liuwei.”
“No, no… As I said a long time ago, the six-tailed dog has no characteristics, and it will have the same name as the six-tailed rhinoceros among the tailed beasts.”
The red-haired girl in the team shouted, “It should be called Shaibu. Huoib and Muyibu have been found in the village. This child uses the power of yellow sand, so it is just right to be called Shaibu.”
“Shaibu doesn’t sound good… It’s better to call it Six Tails.”
The yellow-haired youth didn’t get entangled with the girl, but lowered his head and smiled at the little thing on his shoulder, “You’re right, Liuwei.”
Liuwei arched his head obediently, and let out a meow almost like a kitten, obviously very close to this young man.
And this suddenly made the red-haired girl stare red (uh, maybe her eyes were red), and she muttered, “Naruto, you are despicable, you are so despicable, I should have let me tame you of…”
So they were just discussing this? a name?
The middle-aged man sighed a few words in his heart that it’s good to be young, and suddenly realized that the creature on the young man’s shoulder was the monster that was originally bred in the breeding field?
How could it be so docile, how could it be so harmless to humans and animals, so…lovable?
Doubts kept surging in my mind, and the middle-aged man and his companion couldn’t help but take a second look.
“This is indeed the one just now, but now it’s a harmless Pokémon.”
Naruto sensed their gaze, and explained with a smile, “In the future, there will only be more and more of this type of guy…”
The gardeners present pricked up their ears, feeling that it was an eye-opener.
Even if only with their eyesight, they can glimpse a corner of the future.
Has already experienced the revival of the dead, the establishment of allies… This series of major ninja events that are rare in the millennium, I thought the world was stable, but I didn’t expect that it would change further.
Naruto’s companions didn’t interrupt him when they saw the rise of what he said, but took Liuwei from his shoulders, intending to test his ability and character by the way.
However, at this time, Naruto’s white gelatin bracelet was cracked, and a phantom was projected from it.
The girl named Hinata stared at Naruto through the screen, blinked her eyes, and said softly, “Squad Naruto, an S-level emergency mission is issued now, please go to Yuyin Village immediately.”
Hearing such a serious call, Naruto, Sasuke and the others immediately became serious, “What happened?”
Hinata looked at Naruto for five seconds before saying, “I can’t say.” Then he turned off the screen.
“Alas… the liaison officer has already spoken, it seems that we can only hurry over.”
Naruto scratched his head, then turned his head and said to the gardeners, “What I said is contained in the latest edition of the popular science manual. You can read the rest for yourself. See you next time…” Then he disappeared with his companions .
While watching the Naruto team leave, the middle-aged man turned his gaze to the fungus garden, with wonder in his eyes.
In the future, will there be another Pokémon here?
So, is it possible for him to own a Pokémon?
A lingering thought emerged in his mind, and the middle-aged man made up his mind to read the league’s popular science handbook first.
After completing the collection of Pokémon and leaving the fungus garden on the edge of the Kingdom of the Wind, the Naruto team did not go far. They stopped on a sand dune.
The fourth person in the team, Haruno Sakura took out a fist-sized white jelly object from the scroll, and injected chakra into it.
Soon, the thing expanded, forming a long object one meter wide and four or five meters long, shaped like a boat.
Several people took the Pokémon they had just captured, and lay on their sides one after another. As the driver Haruno Sakura continued to inject chakra, the jelly continued to grow on top of everyone’s heads, and soon sealed the top of the ‘ship’.
In the dark, the light above the head glows faintly, and several sac-shaped objects form on the canopy of the boat. While glowing, they release the oxygen necessary for human beings. As long as there is enough chakra, everyone does not have to worry about breathing difficulties.
However, due to the small space, everyone was unable to move freely at this time and was quite restricted.
Of course, compared to traveling every day for several days and nights, these small shortcomings of transportation tools are not a big problem.
“Are you ready? The Spring Field is officially departing!”
Half of her body sank in the jelly-like cabin, Haruno Sakura’s personality seemed to have changed, and her whole body exuded an awe-inspiring aura.
Following an excited ‘Yahoo’ with unknown meaning, the hull began to vibrate violently.
Everyone in the team hurriedly grasped the handrail, and Xiaoliuwei also grabbed Naruto’s collar. Although the cabin was closed, they didn’t need to worry about being thrown out, but even this little psychological hint was needed.
Fortunately, this vibration did not last long, and soon entered a high-speed but relatively stable state.
This boat-shaped means of transportation was born out of the previous enemy Bai Jue.
It is not driving on land, but driving towards the ground. Once it enters the roots of the former sacred tree, both the speed and the comfort of the driving process are quite guaranteed.
The only fly in the ointment is that the line is slightly complicated, and there are fractures in some areas.
But this is not what they need to consider, the “female driver” Haruno Sakura will take care of everything.
After they settled down, the rest of the team breathed a sigh of relief, and started to turn on their respective wristband screens to watch news from various countries.
This kind of bracelet is also a derivative of Baijue, with complex spells built in. It communicated with Hinata just now through the screen, and it is a variant of Baijue’s ability in the past.
There are many similar things, all of which were developed by the Konoha Research Institute in recent years, including the Pokémon Ball that subdues evil spirits today.
Sasuke always had a cool expression on his face, and he didn’t have direct contact with Liuwei, but his eyes always fell on the little guy intentionally or unintentionally. At this time, he didn’t know how long he could bear it, and then he couldn’t hold back and said,
“It was so violent just now, but now it is so harmless to humans and animals…”
“Just now I was clamoring for others to read more books, but it turned out that it was my turn.”
Xianglin didn’t raise her head, she teased the six tails on Naruto’s shoulder, and said casually, “This is just a variant of the theory of the unity of body and soul, that is, body and soul are inseparable, and the influence is secret and far-reaching.”
“This…Of course I know.” Sasuke’s eyes fell on Liuwei who was rubbing Kaorin and learning how to meow, and frowned imperceptibly, “Knowing this doesn’t explain anything.”
“It should be said that we can only understand the surface and cannot explain it.”
Kanlin continued, “For example, you often complain that your ninja cat is too loud and manic, but in fact, if you remove the two **** between its legs, it will become very docile.”
Sasuke listened to Xianglin’s casual words, and couldn’t help feeling cold, and opened his mouth, “I’m actually not that annoying, so I don’t need to do this.”
“Well, I also recommend that you don’t do this, otherwise you will indeed get meekness, but you will also turn it into trash.”
Xianglin shrugged, “This is a kind of physical body reaction spirit.”
Turning her eyes to Liuwei, she continued, “The reason why the newborn Liuwei is so violent is actually just obeying the instinct of growth, and subconsciously exerting her swallowing instinct, but the body we restrained it has neither the ability to devour it nor digest it. The supporting organs are too weak compared to this spiritual body.”
“In other words, it doesn’t need and can’t grow.”
“And this suppressed its instincts to a great extent, and the character it shows now is its original temperament—a newborn, lovely elf.”
“I see.” Sasuke nodded subconsciously, and then suddenly realized, “This is not knowledge from books at all.”
The body that can restrain evil spirits was only put into use last month, and the types of Pokémon have only broken through double digits not long ago. How could the principle be written in the book so quickly.
“Ah…exposed.” Xianglin stuck out her tongue, showing no sign of apology.
After Sasuke snorted coldly, he didn’t bother, as if he lost interest in all this, and focused on watching the screen of the bracelet.
It’s just the information on the screen, it’s clearly the Pokémon Pokédex.
Under the hurricane of the female driver Haruno Sakura, the journey ended soon.
In just two hours, they crossed over. Before that, Jonin had to travel for three to five days.
Leaving the ‘root of the ground’ and returning to the surface, the group took a little more time to arrive at the research institute next to Yuyin Village.
“You are here.”
The white-haired man with glasses greeted everyone with a smile, and glanced at Naruto’s shoulder, “Liuwei… right, it’s rare that you can come so quickly while carrying out the mission.”
“Master Dou, if there is any urgent task, just tell us, we have recovered our spirits on the way.”
Naruto had a serious expression, full of energy, and the three people behind him immediately nodded in response.
“Very good, very energetic.” Pharmacist smiled, “But you have misunderstood. Although the task is urgent, it is not critical. You and Sasuke only need to be present, and even if it goes well, you only need to watch the whole process.”
“Me and… Sasuke?” Naruto turned his head and looked at Sasuke, both of them puzzled.
“What, it turns out that we have nothing to do here.”
Xiang Lin was a little dissatisfied, and stepped forward to shake Pharmacist Dou’s arm, “Uncle Dou, Xiao Ying has become a driver anyway, but I made a trip for nothing.”
“It’s not in vain, You Ming, say hello to your brothers and sisters.”
Pharmacist took a step back, letting out the boy behind him.
“Hello, brothers and sisters of Konoha.” The four or five-year-old boy bowed slightly and was very polite.
“Wow, who is this, Uncle Dou’s child?” Xiang Lin shook off Dou’s arm, and hugged the boy for a while, messing affectionately.
After being surprised for a moment behind Sasuke, he noticed the details that other people couldn’t find. He looked up at the pharmacist pocket, “This child, his eyes?”
“Blood Wheel Eye, but it’s not stable enough yet.”
Pharmacist Doudou gave him an approving look, nodded and said, “Youming is mainly my gene, supplemented by your Uncle Jinzhu’s gene, the blender.”
Sasuke had a strange expression on his face, “Does Uncle Jinzhu know about this?”
“I have obtained his consent.” Pharmacist admitted generously.
Sasuke heard that he didn’t know what expression to make, and subconsciously asked, “Then Uncle Jinsuke’s wife, Aunt Suimi…”
At this time, the two young people present were greatly shocked. They didn’t know what to say, but instead, Xiang Lin and Haruno Sakura’s eyes lit up, with searching eyes.
“Do not misunderstand.”
Under the complicated eyes of everyone, Yao Shidou couldn’t help laughing, “Although Youming is my child, it has experimental significance in itself. There is no second pair of blood wheel eyes.”
“…Uh, yes, yes, this matter is indeed very important.”
After a moment of silence, the Naruto team and the others all nodded wildly, especially the two young men, who had no intention of entangled with the fetters of the previous generation of adults.
Seeing this, the pharmacist smiled, and continued to explain, but led a group of people towards the interior of the institute.
And below the great lake, in the core area underground of the laboratory, everyone also saw the person who issued the urgent task.
Everyone bowed in unison and made a half salute.
Looking more like a teenager than a middle-aged man, Orochimaru woke up from contemplation, saw a few people nodding slightly, and said with a smile, “Oh, it’s coming soon, the experiment can begin.”
“Teacher Orochimaru, can you tell me what kind of experiment it is?” Xiang Lin stared at Oroshemaru and stammered.
Oshemaru smiled without saying a word, and the pharmacist beside him said, “It’s similar to what you did before, but this time, it’s to solve the biggest hidden danger in the ninja world.”
“What did you do before? Take Pokémon?”
Sasuke’s eyes lit up, how powerful is the Pokémon that even Master Orochimaru can pay attention to?
“That’s right, it can be said that the previous records of conquest were all for this experiment.”
The gaze under the eyes of the pharmacist was a little frenzied, and his arms couldn’t help but go up, “Next, we will release Otsutsuki Kaguya from the moon, and then put her into the Pokémon ball.”
Of the people present, only the members of the Naruto team who heard the content of the experiment for the first time were shocked.
After a long time, Sasuke hesitated, “But she is not the ancestor of Chakra, but also the ancestor of Uchiha?”
“Biologically speaking, the ancestors of Uchiha and Senju are only Sage of the Six Paths.”
Pharmacist pushed his glasses, “Although it is undeniable that the entire ninja world has an inheritance relationship with Kaguya on Chakra, this is neither her will nor the person who did this behavior is not her.”
“But Pokémon… That Otsutsuki Kaguya is different from the newborn spirit body in the fungus nursery. She is a person.”
Naruto also hesitated, “How can you turn a person into a Pokémon?”
“Alien life, especially the alien life that intends to destroy the ninja world, has no human rights.”
This time, it was Orochimaru who spoke, his eyes glanced at Naruto’s shoulder,
“Even for this little thing on your shoulder, before we find a way to make it harmless, what methods do we use to deal with its kind?”
“Delete!” Naruto finally spit out two words.
Of course he knows, even in the past few years, his team is the one that has performed the most missions of this kind.
“The first priority of the race is survival. At this level, no indecision is allowed.”
Orochimaru licked his lips and said with a smile, “By the way, Sage of the Six Paths also supports this decision.”
Although, this is because of his persecution.
Killing Kaguya, or turning him into a Pokémon, which one is better, can be confirmed at a glance.
Sasuke breathed a sigh of relief upon hearing this.
With the help of the ancestors, it is a lot easier to make a decision without having to make it yourself.
He and Naruto exchanged a glance, then looked at Orochimaru, and said confidently, “If you have any orders, please tell me.”
At this time, a man suddenly said, “Don’t get me wrong.”
Nagato walked up to the Naruto team, and stared at the team members with the reincarnation eye, “You are just a kind of emergency plan, and you are still at the lowest level in the sequence.”
Before they fell down, how could these little guys be allowed to make a move? This is the self-esteem of adults.
Naruto and the others recognized Nagato’s identity, knowing that the other party had even fought against Orochimaru, their faces suddenly collapsed.
With Nagato, there is still a chance for them to perform.
Oshemaru looked at Naruto Sasuke’s frustrated expression, with a smile on his mouth, then his expression became serious, and he gave orders in the center of the hall, “Let’s start.”
Ending with Kaguya, he wants to bring the ninja world into a new generation.
Sorry, it’s a bit late to see book friends reminding me to write more, and I just finished writing it now.
