The first ray of sunlight in the morning fell in the village of Konoha, and the battle that lasted all night finally came to an end.

     Last night, Konoha suffered heavy losses. The villagers evacuated in time and there were not many casualties, but Jōnin sacrificed a third to stop Kyuubi (Nine-Tails).

     Not to mention that there are hundreds of White Zetsu mixed into the crowd, Orochimaru is not fast to recognize White Zetsu's Speed, this group of White Zetsu also caused a huge loss to Konoha before being found.

     The most important thing is that Konoha lost Yondaime Hokage (Fourth Hokage) Minato, who had just taken a new year, and Fourth Hokage sacrificed himself to seal Kyuubi (Nine-Tails) and protect Konoha.

     The funeral of Bofeng Minato was scheduled for two days. The country cannot be without a ruler for a day, and the village of Konoha cannot be without the village chief for a day. At this time, the top Konoha and the strong in the village gathered together to discuss matters related to Hokage.

     "What happened last night..."

     "Sorry, the old man is late!" As soon as Third Hokage spoke, Danzō pushed in and interrupted Third Hokage.

     "Danzō? What are you doing?" Utatane Koharu asked, frowning.

     "I called him here. Danzō has the right to know what happened last night." Mito Homura replied faintly.

     "Okay, sit down now that you are here!" Third Hokage saw Danzō, hesitated for a moment and finally let him stay.

     Danzō sat down next to Mito Homura."Let's go on, last night..."

     "Sorry, sorry, we're late!" This time, Yamanaka Ryo and Kushina who was holding Naruto pushed in. Third Hokage's face turned black in an instant.

     But when Third Hokage saw the child in Kushina's arms, he remembered Bofeng Minato and sighed and motioned for the two to sit down.

     Yamanaka Ryo and Kushina mother and son sat together with Hagi Sakumo, Jiraiya, and Orochimaru.

     Third Hokage did not rush to speak. Instead, he scanned the crowd. After making sure that no one was late, Third Hokage continued: "Everyone must know what happened last night and participated. On behalf of Konoha, thank you everyone You fought bloody battles, and you protected this village." After saying that, Third Hokage bowed to everyone.

     "Hiruzen, you are too polite. It is our responsibility to protect Konoha," Mito Homura said.

     "Really? But why didn't I see you in the fight last night?" Orochimaru complete change from the normal state retorted Mito Homura.

     Yamanaka Ryo was taken aback. It was the first time he saw Orochimaru attack someone at this kind of meeting, and the faces of the others were a little weird.

     "Uncle Snake, you didn't see it. It doesn't mean that Elder Homura didn't participate in the war. Yesterday, I sensed that Elder Homura has been in the shelter to protect civilians."Yamanaka Ryo has always had an unfavorable relationship with Mito Homura, not to mention that he actually felt that Mito Homura had escaped and hid with the civilians last night.

     Mito Homura's face was purple with Orochimaru and Yamanaka Ryo. Everyone looked at Mito Homura with contempt. Third Hokage's eyes were also full of disappointment.

     But it was his old comrade-in-arm Third Hokage who took the initiative to change the topic: "Ahem, can we talk about other things later? Don't forget that I summoned everyone here today for Hokage's issue."

     "Hiruzen, do you mean to elect Hokage the fifth generation?" Utatane Koharu asked.

     "It depends on everyone's opinion!" Third Hokage kicked the ball to everyone.

     Others started talking, and Yamanaka Ryo also established a Spirit (ual) / Mind (Mental) connection with Jiraiya and others. A few minutes later, Yamanaka Ryo reached a consensus.

     The first speaker was Hyuga Hiashi: "Sandaime (The Third) Lord, I think it is possible to elect Hokage Fifth Daime. I personally recommend Lord Jiraiya."

     "I have different opinions. Lord Jiraiya is too free to be a Hokage. Sarutobi Clan recommends Orochimaru-sama!"For a time when the scene was out of control, each family recommended their favorite Hokage candidates, and the only ones they recommended were Jiraiya, Orochimaru, Hagi Sakumo, and Danzō, who did not know how many families had bought.

     It's almost as if everyone is arguing. According to the plan discussed with Yamanaka Ryo, Sakumo Hagi stood up and said: "This farce ends here. We are opposed to the election of the fifth generation of Hokage!"

     The meeting room was quiet for a moment, and everyone did not expect that the Kage levels of Konoha would collectively oppose the election of the fifth generation of Hokage.

     After a while, the clan chief of Sarutobi Clan, cautious and solemn, asked: "Then I don't know what the adults think?"

     "The fifth generation may be vacant for the time being! We think we will first choose an agent Hokage to handle the village affairs, and after the negative effects of the night of Kyuubi (Nine-Tails) are eliminated, we will choose the fifth generation Hokage." Yamanaka Ryo said lightly .

     The representative of the small family who was bought by Danzō said: "If you are acting as an agent for Hokage, wouldn't it be enough to have Lord Sandaime (The Third)?"

     "The old man has retired for a year, so don't bother him!" Jiraiya objected immediately.

     The meeting room was quiet again. Everyone looked at each other in dismay and didn't say anything. After all, the Ninja world still decides everything. Konoha's Kage level was against it, and their discussions were useless.Seeing that the dust has settled, Mito Homura couldn't sit still. He knew that this meeting was related to Hokage yesterday.

     Mito Homura spent a lot of resources and bought more than half of Konoha's small and medium-sized families in order to let Danzō become Hokage and return to office after living as a hermit on Mount Dongshan.

     But now if he chooses an agent for Hokage, everything he has done is in vain, Mito Homura stands up: "Huh! I object! How can Konoha be a big village without Hokage?"

     "Then according to Elder Homura, who do you think is more suitable for this five-generation Hokage?" Yamanaka Ryo opened Mangekyō and applied Genjutsu (Illusionary Technique) to Mito Homura to let him speak his mind.

     Yamanaka Ryo contact lenses, and there is no Uchiha Clan in the meeting room, so no one noticed anything unusual.

     After Mito Homura caught Genjutsu (Illusionary Technique), he directly expressed his inner thoughts: "Of course it is Danzō."

     Yamanaka Ryo curled his mouth in disdain when he heard Danzō's name, and then Chakra burst into his body: "When Hokage needs to be strong, Danzō, do you think you can hold on to me for a few seconds?"

     Danzō snorted and did not answer. Yamanaka Ryo broke his illusion of Hokage in the most direct way.After a few minutes of silence in the conference room, Third Hokage said, “I understand everyone’s opinions. From the situation just now, there are still more people who do not want to elect Hokage for the fifth generation. Then I respect everyone’s opinions and decide first. An agent for Hokage, what do you think about who is acting for Hokage?"

     No one spoke this time, everyone looked at Yamanaka Ryo and others.

     Yamanaka Ryo smiled, stood up and said, "I propose to represent Hokage by Sakumo Hagiki, what do you think?"

     Representatives of the various families, after discussing quietly for a while, most of them chose to agree, and Sakumo Hagaki officially became the agent of Hokage.
