Reborn into Naruto World with Tenseigan - Chapter - 228
Huala… Huala… Huala…
Instantly, a violent whirlwind swept all around, with loud noise echoing, the mountain that was housing the prison dungeon collapsed.
The collapse of the mountain caused a large amount of dust and smoke clouds to rise in the sky.
Amidst, this chaotic scenery, Hyuga Kuroto was standing calmly with a protective gravity ball surrounding him from all sides, protecting him from all the falling stones and boulders.
Currently, he was not wearing any disguise, dressed in his usual simple white kimono, he was observing everything with his Byakugan.
The two Susanoo who were facing each other, both very similar in appearance with only a slight color difference, Uchiha Ryota’s Susanoo being golden while Uchiha Hideki’s Susanoo also being golden but with a touch of orange.
“Hmm, I did not expect Uchiha Hideki to be able to awaken Mangekyou Sharingan.” – muttered Kuroto with a thoughtful look, he was really surprised and it was indeed a bit unexpected.
Uchiha Hideki had already collapsed and entered a vegetative state because of being unable to bear the psychological pressure, as such Kuroto judged him to be useless with no aptitude to survive the emotional stress needed to awaken Mangekyou Sharingan, but it turns out that Hideki managed to surpass Kuroto’s expectations.
Hideki even managed to give Kuroto a bit of a hard time, while Kuroto used the ‘Tenseigan Soul Descend’ to take over Uchiha Hideki’s body.
Before this, Uchiha Hideki entered a vegetative state, therefore, Kuroto took over Hideki’s body with the Tenseigan Soul Descend for the final ‘Despair Test’ for Uchiha Ryota that would allow him to experience true despair in order to stimulate him emotionally so that he can awaken the Mangekyou Sharingan.
But Uchiha Hideki also somehow managed to recover from his vegetative state, and he awoke stronger than before, as such he was able to fight, albeit only to a certain extent but that was enough to give Kuroto a hard time.
The activation of Uchiha Hideki’s Sharingan was also Hideki’s doing, it just so happened that the instant was perfect so Kuroto didn’t suppress that action and allowed Ryota to verify that he was really in the presence of his elder brother.
Although this did allow Uchiha Ryota to confirm that the person sitting on the high-back chair was indeed his brother, plunging him into grief, disbelief, and despair but the activation of Sharingan helped Hideki struggle against Kuroto more strongly and slowly regain his control over his body.
And this is the reason why Uchiha Hideki who was sitting on the high-back chair was acting strangely, with a distorted expression, pressing his one hand over the other, as if suppressing something within.
That was because Kuroto and Hideki’s souls were engaged in an extremely fierce conflict to take over complete control of the body, but Kuroto wasn’t much worried as he knew that he was the dominant one.
In the end, Hideki’s love for his younger brother allowed him, a dead man who was on the verge of collapsing and fading away burnt out all of his potentials and somehow awakened the Mangekyou Sharingan.
As soon as Kuroto discovered that Hideki has also awakened the Mangekyou Sharingan, Kuroto no longer suppressed Hideki’s soul and deactivated the Tenseigan Soul Descend and came back to his main body.
And now we have two titanic, humanoid Chakra avatars facing off one another!
On the Uchiha brother’s side.
Uchiha Ryota held his forehead with the only arm he has, his breathing ragged and distorted, voice weak and unsteady, yet indifference apparent in his lifeless eyes. Looking at his brother who also awakened the Susanoo just as he did, Ryota said, “Nii-san, no… we are not brothers anymore, I refuse to acknowledge someone like you as my brother, it turns out that you have always kept me in dark! Your talent and qualification have always been better than me! You also awakened the Mangekyou Sharingan far before me, in fact, with the character you have displayed, I wouldn’t even deny if you are the person responsible for controlling the Kyuubi and destroying Konoha!
But what does it matter? After all, everything’s going to end today anyway, I will make sure that I kill you today than kill every single traitor who made me go through this!”
Uchiha Hideki, who just seized control over his body after such a tiring battle of the soul against Hyuga Kuroto, opened his mouth, trying to explain to Ryota, but no sound came out, and he could only flap his mouth like a fish.
Undoubtedly, Hideki is too weak to be able to control all his body.
Ryota looked at Hideki with an indifferent look and spoke, “Do you have any last wish to speak to me because this will be the last time, as either one of us will die today!”
Hideki stood up and put all his effort to sspeak, but all that came out was incoherent stammering, “Ryo… Ryota… b-b-b… be care… c-careful…!”
“Be careful!?” – Ryota snorted coldly, and said, “Well, of course, I will be careful against you, now I have realized just what kind of a sickening person you are, so I will make sure to be careful of you! Come on, Uchiha Hideki, one of us must die, and whoever wins will get eternal light, if I die, then you can have my Mangekyou Sharingan as you planned, but if you die, then I will gain the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and then I will do what I have to do, with the Uchiha and Konoha!”
Uchiha Ryota knew full well that compared to Hideki who is in the top state, his possibility of winning are very slim given the physical and mental state he is in, but Ryota will not make it easy for this bastard brother to get what he wanted so easily, and if there is even a slight possibility, then Ryota will give everything he has to kill Uchiha Hideki and then have his revenge against Fugaku and Shisui!
This is his last stubbornness!
With that decision, Ryota controlled his golden Susanoo to bring out chakra swords in one arm while and punched Hideki’s golden-orange Susanoo with the other arm, followed by the attacks from the Chakra Sword.
Each punch is enough to shatter the mountain, and as Hideki’s Susanoo collided with the collapsed mountain, rubble was flying everywhere, smoke and dust kept rising in the sky.
With just two punches and two sword attacks, Hideki’s Susanoo was severely knocked to the ground and its appearance started becoming illusionary, as if it was close to fading away, clearly indicating that it is really hard for Hideki to keep it maintained for very long, because of his weak spirit.
Ryota noticed that something was strange and frowned, “Why is your chakra so weak?”
With just one combination of attacks, Ryota discovered that currently Hideki’s chakra was even weaker than him, which shouldn’t be the case and this made him suspicious!
‘Could it be possible that he is intentionally acting weak so that I let down my guard!? Yes, this has to be the case!’ – with that thought, Ryota again started the onslaught of attacks.
Each attack caused devastating damage to the already damaged surrounding, and Ryota’s mind was also in a mess, the more he attacked, the more he discovered that Hideki was not acting and his chakra was slowly getting weaker.
Moreover, Hideki made many attempts, but he was not able to resist.
‘Just what the hell is he doing!?’
He couldn’t understand Hideki’s intentions so stopping midway he asked, “Just what the hell is wrong with you!? Stop pretending already! If you think that you can take advantage of me again, then you are dead wrong!”
Hideki panted weakly as he finally had the opportunity to catch his breath, now he was also able to regain complete control over his body and explained, “I… I am not p-pretending otouto, you hav-have to listen to me… we… we are being played… played in the hands of that bastard who has been controlling everything from the start!”
“SHUT UP! You are lying again! You just want me to drop my guard so that you can strike at that opportunity!” – Ryota retorted.
Hideki shook his head, “That’s not true otouto… the other party is capable of using a weird type of Jutsu that allows him to take control over other’s body, I am no different from you, I also experienced the similar hell that you did, and finally when I couldn’t awaken the Mangekyou Sharingan, he deemed me unqualified and took control over my body to enact all that you witnessed… please trust me, it was only when I saw you and your suffering did I manage to put up resistance and break free of his control, but unfortunately it was already too late!”
Although Ryota was highly skeptical of Hideki’s explanation, he still decided to listen, something was telling him that Hideki was not lying, or maybe, this was just his hope.
At this time, Hideki looked around vigilantly and explained, “He has to be hiding here somewhere, in order to observe us, be careful Ryota, he might try to take advantage of our weakness and kill us to dig out our eyes!”
Ryota who heard this immediately became alert.
“Just who is he…?” – asked Ryota in doubt.
“He is…!” – Hideki was about to answer the true identity of the person who was responsible for their misery suddenly paused midway because while he was looking around, he finally found the traces of that person. “I found him! There he is… Why don’t you come out already, you BASTARD!”
As soon as Hideki pointed, Ryota turned his face in that direction to look over.
Beckoned by Hideki’s shout a person waltz out leisurely from the cluster of rubble and spoke with a disappointed tone, “Sigh, found me already? That’s a bit of a letdown, and here I thought that the two of you will continue to duke it out like the idiots you are, one will kill the other saving me a lot of trouble as I wouldn’t have to kill both of you, but it appears that won’t be happening anymore. But I guess I should have expected as such, the feeling between a pair of brothers will always maintain a certain level of trust even when the two are after each other’s lives, this has been the case before and will certainly not change!”
Uchiha Ryota and Uchiha Hideki immediately urged all their strength to strengthen their Susanoo as that person walked over.
Before the small figure of Hyuga Kuroto, the two massive skeletal figures of Susanoo were like two Gods of Death ready to cleave the head of a sinful mortal!
