Rebirth of an Otaku in Naruto - chapter 30
After his spar with Zoro, Ren walked back as the sun slowly started to set. Arriving at his home, he walked straight into his room before falling down on his bed. However, he felt wide awake and couldn’t fall asleep so he decided to walk out, where he saw Itachi sitting alone in the courtyard.
Sitting next to Itachi, Ren asked, “How are you doing since Shisui’s death?”
“I’m fine, I’m just a little sad. To think Danzo took his eye, even though Shisui wanted to use it for the good of the village!” Itachi said as while clenching his fists.
Sitting in silence next to Itachi, Ren decided to change the subject, “Where’s Sasuke? It’s pretty late” Ren said as he looked at the sunset.
“He’s currently in his room studying for a test he has,” Itachi said while his mood seemed to improve from the change of subject.
“I see,” Ren said before hearing a knock on the front door.
Both Ren and Itachi walked towards the door to open it up to see three older men.
“Itachi! Get out here, we need to have a talk,” the man with grey spiky hair said while completely ignoring Ren.
“May I ask why you’re here?” Itachi questioned as he walked out the door.
“I’ll get straight to the point, there were only two people who didn’t show up to last night’s meeting, why weren’t you there?” the man with grey hair questioned.
“I’m sorry, I was busy” Itachi replied, “Now if there’s nothing left I ask of you to leave as I’m quite busy.”
“There’s another thing, we came to tell you that we, the Police Force, will launch an all-out investigation regarding Shisui Uchiha who died yesterday by suicide.”
“What? Investigation?” Itachi bewilderedly asked.
“Shisui was a man who would undertake any mission for the clan, it’s difficult to believe someone like him would kill himself, yet to leave this on his will.” The grey-haired man said while taking out Shisui’s will.
On the will it said, “I have wearied of duty. As it is, the Uchiha has no future. Neither do I… I can no longer follow the “path”.
“We want you to ask the Anbu, to conduct an investigation as well,” he paused, while walking away, then continued, “But, we have other ways besides the Anbu, if there’s any news, then we’ll know about it.”
Hearing this Itachi was immediately angered as he opened his Sharingan, “Why don’t you just say it, you believe I had a hand in Shisui’s death!”
The three immediately stopped and turned to look at Itachi with their Sharingans opened, “That’s right, we believe it was you!”
“If we find out it was you Itachi who betrayed the clan, you’ll pay for your wrongs!”
“SHUT UP!” Ren interrupted fiercely, “Shisui was Itachi’s best friend, he saw Shisui as dear as a brother, and you’re here accusing him of killing him?!”.
“No one cares about your opinion brat. In the end, you’re average compared to your brother, you don’t even have your Sharingan opened.” One of the men responded with a grin.
