A few days later, two traveling merchants came to Konoha together. They brought Country of Rain specialties to Konoha for sale.
Country of Rain is closed to the outside world all the year round, and their specialties are very rare. Therefore, as soon as the two put the things out, they attracted the Konoha villagers looting, and they soon sold out.
The two who had sold their things did not leave Konoha immediately, but wandered around in the village of Konoha.
It is not surprising that many travel merchants will choose to play in Konoha after they have sold their things.
When it was almost noon, the two came to Konoha's meatball shop together, and one of them was relatively young and ordered 100 bunches of three-color meatballs.
After another person waited for the balls to come up, he picked up a bunch of them and frowned after tasting them: "Mr. Itachi, these three-color balls are not as delicious as you said."
Itachi said lightly, "Really? I think it's the same as before, still so delicious."
That's right, these two people are Itachi and Hoshigaki Kisame. They wrapped their bodies with White Zetsu's Chakra and became what they are now.
Unlike in the original work, where Itachi returned to Konoha, Konoha now has Yamanaka Ryo, Hagi Sakumo, Kakashi, Jiraiya, Tsunade, Kushina and six Hokage-level Ninjas. Akatsuki can't help but Konoha even if they are all out.And in the original work, Itachi sneaked into Konoha to warn Danzō, this time he sneaked into Konoha just to see how the village was going through the explosion.
Therefore, the Itachi Hoshigaki Kisame duo who took over the task of investigating Konoha's intelligence, chose to use White Zetsu's Henge no Jutsu (Transformation Technique) to sneak in.
White Zetsu’s Henge no Jutsu (Transformation Technique) can be said to be the most perfect disguise, except for Orochimaru, who has a special understanding of White Zetsu Chakra, Kyuubi (Nine-Tails)’s perception of malice, and its Spiritual/Mental Strength is huge with the help of Sage. Mode increases the Spiritual/Mental Strength. With the pervasive Spiritual/Mental Strength, it can detect subtle flaws. No one in the ninja world should be able to see through.
After eating the meatballs, the two continued to wander around the village to gather information. Coincidentally, they met the seventh group of people who had just returned from a mission outside.
Sasuke and Itachi passed by. Itachi's body stiffened, and he couldn't help but look back at Sasuke. Sasuke seemed to be feeling something, and turned back almost at the same time.
Itachi's familiar eyes made Sasuke's body tremble, and Naruto noticed Sasuke's abnormal turn and looked at the two of them.
Kyuubi (Nine-Tails) inside Naruto followed Naruto's gaze and saw Itachi and Hoshigaki Kisame wrapped in White Zetsu Chakra.
"Hey! Naruto, the two people in front of you have a problem. They used a special Henge no Jutsu (Transformation Technique). Be careful."
Naruto was taken aback for a moment, then took out Kunai and looked at the two warily."Naruto, Sasuke, what's wrong with you?" Kakashi asked strangely when the two stopped.
"Kakashi sensei, Kurama told me just now that the two of them used Henge no Jutsu (Transformation Technique)." Naruto pointed to Itachi and Hoshigaki Kisame and said.
"Henge no Jutsu (Transformation Technique) used? Spy?"
"Mr. Itachi, they seem to have discovered our identity, what should we do?"
"Leave first!" After saying that, Itachi dropped the smoke bomb and jumped into the house with Hoshigaki Kisame.
Kakashi didn't mean to chase them. Konoha's lurking spies are not one or two. It is Anbu's job to clean up the spies, and unless they encounter them, Kakashi will not be nosy.
"Okay, don't look! We should go back to hand in the task." After saying that Kakashi took the lead and left, Naruto reluctantly followed behind, while Sasuke lowered his head thinking about the familiar eyes, the familiar person.
Itachi and Hoshigaki Kisame ran to the edge of the village together. Hoshigaki Kisame found that Kakashi had not caught up: "Mr. Itachi, it seems that he didn't mean to arrest us."
Itachi nodded and said, "He just treats us as ordinary spies. Konoha's spies are usually handled by Anbu. It is normal for him not to chase us.
But now that I was discovered, I should leave immediately. Fortunately, we have almost understood the current situation of Konoha, and we can leave. "As soon as Itachi's voice fell, a voice rang behind them: "Since you are here, don't rush away! Itachi, don't you want to be home after so many years of not coming back?"
Hoshigaki Kisame's complexion changed drastically, and he quickly turned back and pulled away.
Itachi seemed very calm, walked slowly to Hoshigaki Kisame and said: "Ryo-sama, long time no see!"
"Yeah! Long time no see, I think about 3 or 4 years!" Yamanaka Ryo said with a smile.
When Hoshigaki Kisame heard Itachi's name for Yamanaka Ryo becoming more serious, he asked in a low voice: "Mr. Itachi, is he Yamanaka Ryo?"
Itachi nodded, "Well, he is Yamanaka Ryo, the strongest man in the ninja world now!"
Hoshigaki Kisame was taken aback. He didn't expect Itachi to comment on Yamanaka Ryo: "Mr. Itachi, you mean he is better than U... Pain?"
"Yes, so whether we can escape next depends on our luck. After a while, I will use Mangekyō's Dojutsu (Eye Technique) to hold him, and you directly use your strongest Suiton's Ninjutsu, if you are lucky. He might get hurt a bit, and we have a chance to leave."
"Okay, listen to you."
The conversation between the two was very small, but they did not hide from Yamanaka Ryo's ears. Yamanaka Ryo smiled and didn't care about their tactics.Itachi nodded to Hoshigaki Kisame, then opened his Mangekyou Sharingan, Yamanaka Ryo only felt that his eyes were dark, and then appeared in the Tsukuyomi space.
"Ryo-sama, sorry to invite you in this way."
Yamanaka Ryo waved his hand and said, "It's okay. I understand that it is not convenient for someone outside to monitor and speak. That's fine."
"Well, thank you for your understanding."
"Well, don't be so polite, just ask if you want to know."
Itachi nodded and began to ask about the current situation of the village and Uchiha Clan. Yamanaka Ryo talked to Itachi about some recent events and the key points of changes in the village.
Itachi was a little strange after listening, because Yamanaka Ryo from start to finish didn't mention Shisui. He hesitated and Itachi asked: "Ryo-sama, what is Shisui doing recently?"
Yamanaka Ryo was taken aback, and then said: "Shisui, he is performing a secret mission with someone."
"Secret mission? Can..."
"No, Itachi, I'm sorry, this task is very important, and only I know about it in the village, so I can't tell you for the time being."
Itachi was not asking, but talking about something in Akatsuki.
After the exchange of information, Yamanaka Ryo said: "Itachi, the next step is to test your acting skills. Don't be surprised no matter what you see for a while, just leave.""What about Hoshigaki Kisame?"
"Do you want him to live?"
"Well, Hoshigaki Kisame still trusts me very much."
"Okay, you two can turn around and run in a while. I will try to pretend to be a little bit.
"Then trouble Ryo-sama."
