MANGA 627 : HASHIRAMA AND MADARA 3
HASHIRAMA : .....shinobi are the people who endure to achieve their goal....depending on what their goal is.....they change..... Like Madara and I.
(Tobirama glares at Hashirama with a confused look while Sasuke shows no expression but still seems not satisfied.)
HASHIRAMA : (sighs) Pheww (throws himself on the ground)....Its a while I did storytelling after Tsunade grew older...hahahaha.
EVERYONE : .......
OROCHIMARU : It is similar to you "two" Sasuke. (licks out his tongue)
EVERYONE : ?!
TOBIRAMA : (while turning towards Hashirama) Broth-
(gets stunned at his place)
HASHIRAMA : (turns his head while lying on the ground) Hmmm...(gets up) Its OK Orochimaru. He wasn't trying to attack.
TOBIRAMA : (turns his eyes at Orochimaru) [ Damn that bastard. He's still in check ]
OROCHIMARU : (laughs) HmmHmmHmmHmmHmmm.... You really were worthy of being the First Hokage.
HASHIRAMA : (smirks) Hmmm. (turns to Sasuke) Tell me, Sasuke. What is your decision? Which side will you choose? Light or Dark?
SASUKE : ...... (reminisces everything one more time) I still want some answers. Orochimaru, free his mentality and restrain his movements.(points at Tobirama)
OROCHIMARU : As you say Sasuke. (makes handseals and then again points out two fingers) He's all yours.
SUIGETSU : [ Thank goodness. ]
(Sasuke walk towards Tobirama and stands in front of him)
SASUKE : Wha-
TOBIRAMA : Listen you Uchiha brat. I have no intention of answering your questions. The answer won't change anything. The hatred in your eyes will only grow more.
[b][u]SASUKE : .....
HASHIRAMA : Tobirama! why don't you answer and let Sasuke decide his path. I'm still here. So don't worry about the consequences.
TOBIRAMA : (sighs) Fine brother. But before his questions.... Let me ask you one thing, brother.
HASHIRAMA : ?!! What do you want to ask me?
TOBIRAMA : Before answering his (looksa at Sasuke) silly questions, I want to know what was the cause of your death?
OTHERS : ?!!
HASHIRAMA : You know how I died, don't you?
TOBIRAMA : I want to hear from you. Speak!
HASHIRAMA : Ok. After my battle with Madara, I buried Madara on the battlefield and went to the village. my left arm got injured during the battle. (Madara is shown cutting Hashirama's arm with his scythe and glares at him) But that wasn't a normal wound. My arm was poisoned. Somehow I managed to fight Madara with that wound but the effects started surfacing with my every move. The medical shinobis weren't that skilled enough to heal my wound.(Medic ninjas are shown struggling for the medicinal herbs, experimenting them on the seal on the scrolls) Also I wasn't able to heal myself even after being the fast healer. Even Mito wasn't able to heal me.(Mito is shown trying and crying) And because of that poison, I died.(Hashirama remembers Mito's crying face before closing his eyes.)
TOBIRAMA / HIRUZEN : ?!! [ How could be that possible?!! ]
OROCHIMARU : (looking at Tobirama and Hiruzen) Hmm?!! [ What happened to them? They understood something interesting. Lets hear them. ] (licks out his tongue) (loosens Hiruzen's mental binding)
HIRUZEN : ?!! What are you talking about, First Hokage? You we-
TOBIRAMA : Hiruzen! I'll explain him. Also except his own family, no one was allowed to stand near him.
HASHIRAMA : ?!! What are you talking about?
TOBIRAMA : Brother..... After your battle with Madara, Lady Mito and I reached the place which was later named as the Valley of the End. The Kyuubi went berserk once again. In that chaos, Lady Mito had to seal the Kyuubi inside her in order to protect you. You were lying unconscious in the valley. I searched for Madara's corpse but I didn't get its trail. And even I didn't got any chakra signals from the nearby area. That time, we considered Madara escaped. So we launched a search team to find him but nothing found. And so he was declared dead during the time of "your death" in order to maintain peace in the village. We never got to ask you about Madara's survival because you died in your sleep. He tricked you with his own death. You never killed Madara Uchiha. You were made to see what he decided to let you see. He manipulated you.
EVERYONE : ?!!
HASHIRAMA : ?!!
(What is the truth behind the death of Hashirama?)
(Madara's powers ......revealed!!)
