Several years of self-cultivation has strengthened Cloud Ninja's military strength a lot, and during this period it was reported that Orochimaru was expelled from Konoha, and Jiraiya and Yamanaka Ryo were not in the village.

     Thinking of this, Cloud Ninja’s mission said without any fear: “If you Konoha don’t hand over the murderer, then go to war!”

     Sakumo Hagi laughed angrily. Do you really think Konoha is a bully?

     Since Sakumo Hakage became the agent of Hokage, the blade of White Fang has not been out of body for a long time. Today, Cloud Ninja's mission is fortunate to be the first person to see the blade of White Fang in so many years.

     In the hotel, the light of the sword flashed, and 5 of the remaining 6 members of the Cloud Ninja mission fell into a pool of blood, leaving only one Jōnin looking at Hagiki Sakumo tremblingly.

     "Tell Fourth Raikage, he wants to go to war, just come! Now take these corpses and get me out of Konoha!"

     The last survivor of the Cloud Ninja mission, received the body of his companion in the Scroll, did not dare to delay a moment, and escaped from Konoha.

     "Immediately spread the actions of Cloud Ninja in Konoha, I want the villagers to know the ugly face of Cloud Ninja!" Hagii Sakumo said to Anbu who was next to him.

     All Ninja of Anbu were dispatched, and the entire Konoha soon learned of the good things Cloud Ninja had done. For a while, both the villagers and Ninja were excited.As for the Hyuga family in the center of Uzumaki (Vortex), Hyuga Hiashi broke into a cold sweat after hearing the news of Cloud Ninja's bite.

     Before Hyuga Hiashi was dissatisfied with Sakumo Hakage acting as the agent of Hokage, now he is very thankful that it is not Third Hokage in power.

     If it is Third Hokage, it is very likely that the Hyuga clan will be sacrificed for the peace of Konoha. Now the strength of Hagi Sakumo makes Hyuga Hiashi's mood very complicated.

     After a long silence, Hyuga Hiashi ordered that Ninja of the Hyuga clan listen to Hokage's assignment and enter a state of combat readiness from now on.

     Third Hokage frowned when he heard the news, and hesitated when he heard that Third Hokage was about to start a war.

     Utatane Koharu, who happened to be chatting with Third Hokage, expressed support for Hagii Sakumo's claims. Third Hokage did not expect Utatane Koharu, who had always advocated peace, would actually support the launch of war, and looked at her with some doubts.

     Utatane Koharu smiled and said: "Hiruzen, if we are not strong this time, more people will covet our Konoha, and what about the battle with Cloud Ninja? We are sure of winning!"

     "I don't worry about losing the battle, I just can't bear the Konoha villagers getting involved in the war again.""Then you have the heart to give up the Hyuga clan? They are also our companions! Hiruzen, we are getting older, but my heart shouldn't grow old together!"

     After listening to Utatane Koharu's words, Third Hokage was taken aback, and then smiled: "I see! Koharu, let's find Sakumo together!"

     Hokage's Office Third Hokage and Utatane Koharu complete change from the normal state, support Hagi Sakumo to start this war.

     Sakumo Hagiki was very curious about what caused the two to suddenly change their attitudes, but he did not ask, instead, he called all the senior officials of Konoha to a war meeting.

     The situation about Cloud Ninja has been circulated in Konoha, and everyone here already knows what is going on right now.

     Sakumo Hagi took a look at the serious Konoha executives, and said directly: "Everyone must be clear about the matter. If Cloud Ninja has any unruly behavior, I will go to war directly."

     "I support Hokage-sama's decision. This incident was originally related to our Hyuga clan. Once war starts, our Hyuga clan will definitely support it!" Hyuga Hiashi was the first to stand up and express his stance.

     "Uchiha Clan agrees!" It's about Konoha. Uchiha Futama/Fugaku rarely did not raise the bar with the Hyuga clan, and immediately agreed.

     "Our tribes will also advance and retreat with Hokage-sama!" Nara Shikaku said on behalf of the Ino-Shika-Chō tribe.The patriarch of Sarutobi Clan glanced at Third Hokage and said that everything was decided by Third Hokage. Third Hokage stood up and said: "Although I don't want to fight, this time it is Cloud Ninja bully intolerably. I agree on behalf of Sarutobi Clan."

     As soon as Third Hokage finished speaking, Utatane Koharu stood up and said, "Hiruzen is right, and I agree!"

     With the support of Third Hokage and an advisory elder, there is no reason for the rest to disagree. In this way, the Konoha executives all caused a battle with Cloud Ninja, and Konoha entered a tense preparation stage.

     A few days later, Jōnin of Cloud Ninja returned to Kumogakure and told Fourth Raikage what Hagiki Sakumo had said.

     Fourth Raikage has a hot temper, how can he stand this kind of remarks. On the same day, Fourth Raikage summoned more than 20,000 Ninjas from Cloud Ninja and headed directly towards the Konoha border!

     And Yamanaka Ryo, who is in the country of Tanokuni, did not know that the cloning experiments of Yamanaka Ryo and Orochimaru have reached a critical point.

     After several months of trials, Yamanaka Ryo and Orochimaru have solved the problem of cell division too fast.

     The rapid division of cells in the past was because the clone had no consciousness, and only relying on the body's Chakra to make Chakra, and excessive loss of cell vitality led to this result.Now the clones made by Yamanaka Ryo and the others retain a trace of instinct, so that it will not affect the soul rebirth of the body, and it can also ensure that rapid cell division will not occur when the clone is subjected to the Chakra extraction experiment.

     After some tests, the two finally succeeded in creating the first clone of Orochimaru.

     The physical condition of the clone is perfectly maintained in his 20s. After repeated inspections, Orochimaru confirmed that the body in front of him is more perfect than when he was 20 years old.

     Orochimaru is very excited. Once the clone is completed, it means that his dream of pursuing immortality will come true.

     Originally Orochimaru wanted to use [Living Corpse Reincarnation] to replace his body immediately, but Yamanaka Ryo stopped him. The clone has just been completed. They don’t know if there is any hidden danger. Yamanaka Ryo wouldn’t let Orochimaru be the first. Try, there are better options right now.

     Yamanaka Ryo took out a small ice-sealed glass bottle from the scroll. The small glass bottle contained a small half bottle of blood, protected by the glass bottle and natural Chakra. Although the blood was ice-sealed, the genes in it were not damaged.

     This drop of blood belongs to Yahiko. When Yamanaka Ryo promised Nagato in Country of Rain that Konan would resurrect Yahiko, he left this small half bottle of blood. Now it comes in handy.Yamanaka Ryo defrosted and took out the small glass bottle, and asked Orochimaru to make a body from the blood in the glass bottle.

     Orochimaru nodded. He knew that this was an "experimental product" prepared by Yamanaka Ryo. If the cloned body that was created in the future was perfectly fused with the soul of the original body, then he would be able to change his body and achieve true immortality.

     It takes about a month to make a clone from embryo to birth. They are already familiar with this step. Yamanaka Ryo can complete it independently without Orochimaru, so Yamanaka Ryo decided to go back to Konoha.

     In the afternoon, after Orochimaru started to make a clone of Yahiko, Yamanaka Ryo said to him: "Uncle Snake, I have been away from Konoha for several months, and I plan to go back and see.

     Orochimaru nodded, saying nothing.

     Yamanaka Ryo came out of the laboratory, washed a bit, and teleported directly back to Yamanaka Clan.
