Hokage: Ryo’s Path
Chapter 500

What the Third Hokage said was also heard by Tsunade. She sneered, ‘Hehe, Hiashi Clan Leader, no one treats you dumb!’
Hyuga Hiashi shut up right away and didn’t dare to say more.
Tsunade was also a bit surprised now. She didn’t expect that the old-fashioned Sarutobi sensei would agree with her proposal, and Jiraiya looked like a ghost.
“Cough cough, I agree to change Hokage because I think Minato is more suitable for this position than Tsunade… personality-wise. Please don’t get the wrong ideas.”
With Third Hokage’s support, the other Clan Leaders had nothing to say, and Tsunade’s proposal was quickly approved.
After the meeting, Third Hokage went to Hokage’s Office with Jiraiya and Tsunade.
Upon entering the office, Tsunade gave winks to the surrounding Anbu Ninja and Shizune. Everyone left the office together, leaving only the three people.
“Say, Old Codger, why would you agree? Why would you side with us?”
The third Hokage laughed and said, “Tsunade, as far as I know, you have misappropriated the money in the village during your tenure!”
Tsunade flushed old without refuting.
“That’s the reason. Try to go to the casino less in the future. Like First Hokage, you will lose every gamble. Why can’t you learn your lesson?”
“Who… who said I would lose every gamble! I have won money from my grandfather, Old Codger. You can’t talk nonsense!”
Jiraiya and Third Hokage glanced at each other and shed cold sweat at the same time. They wonder, How bad is First Hokage at gamble?
“Okay, well, I won’t say much. Look at you. You and Jiraiya should be together! Jiraiya has made a lot of money in writing books over the years. You can use his money to gamble.”
Having said that, the Third Hokage turned and left.
And Tsunade looked at Jiraiya with her brightened eyes, “Does Sarutobi sensei speak the truth?”
“Well… probably! I haven’t noticed it. The money is in my house. You need to get it yourself.” Jiraiya said as he gave the keys to Tsunade.
Tsunade, without the slightest hesitation, took the key and put it in her pocket. She patted Jiraiya’s shoulder said, “Relax, I’m just helping you keep it. I won’t take your money!”
Late at night, Tsunade cautiously sat up from the bed, glanced at Jiraiya, and found that he was sleeping well. Tsunade relaxed, tiptoed to the window, opened the window, and jumped down.
As soon as Tsunade left, Jiraiya opened his eyes and murmured to himself, “Want to get it directly, huh? Why sneaking out, though?”
Taking advantage of the night, Tsunade arrived at Jiraiya’s house, opened it, and saw Jiraiya’s house was full of money. She had never seen so much money.
“It’s all mine! If I knew Jiraiya was so rich, I shouldn’t have rejected him at first. I didn’t have to get that much blood from Orochimaru’s guy as soon as I got this money.”
Thinking of Orochimaru, Tsunade couldn’t help shuddering, but the next second she thought there’s nothing to fear because he was under Ryo’s power.
She took out a seal Scroll, and after sacking it full of money, she left contentedly.
Back to Senju Clan, Tsunade was insomnia and touched the seal Scroll from time to time. Tsunade didn’t sleep all night, but she didn’t feel tired at all.
After experiencing ‘getting rich overnight’, she felt full of strength and processed documents much faster than usual.
On the other side, Namikaze Minato had received a message from Jiraiya asking him to go back to Hokage. Namikaze Minato had no opinion on this, but it was good news.
Naruto immediately expressed his support when he heard that Namikaze Minato was going back to become Hokage. After two days they spent together, the relationship between Naruto and Namikaze Minato had also greatly improved.
The support from his son has also made Minato more motivated.
That afternoon, Namikaze Minato returned to Konoha with Kushina and Naruto using teleport.
The next day, Namikaze Minato officially took over the position as Hokage and also wrote a letter explaining the situation to the other Kage.
Under Minato’s auspices, Konoha’s post-war issues were quickly resolved, and the peace in the village was once again restored.
Unfortunately, the peaceful days didn’t last long. On the fourth day after Namikaze Minato took over, Ninja of Kumogakure sent a letter from Fourth Raikage to Konoha.
Namikaze Minato sent Kakashi to receive the people from Kumogakure. The people from Kumogakure directly asked to see Tsunade and give the letter in person.
Kumogakure’s Ninja didn’t know about Namikaze Minato’s return, and Yamanaka Ryo didn’t want to let other Ninja Village know for the time being. So on the day Pain struck the village, Yamanaka Ryo shot and blocked all the information sent by a spy. And so, for the past few days, Yamanaka Ryo’s activity was to secretly solve these whole “spies” things.
Therefore, Ninja of Kumogakure still thought that Konoha’s current Hokage was Tsunade. So he requested to see Tsunade.
Kakashi relayed Kumogakure Ninja’s request. Namikaze Minato pondered but agreed and then asked Yamanaka Ryo to brought Tsunade over.
After Tsunade had the money, she and Jiraiya wandered around the Country of Fire’s casino all day. Yamanaka Ryo found her to explain the situation. Tsunade reluctantly came down from the gaming table and returned to Konoha with Yamanaka Ryo.
After seeing Tsunade, Ninja of Kumogakure immediately took out the letter from Fourth Raikage and gave it to Tsunade. Tsunade opened the letter and scanned it quickly.
After reading it, Tsunade brows tightly knitted and asked, “Does Raikage really mean what he writes down in this letter?”
Kumogakure Ninja nodded, “Yes! Raikage-sama feels that Akatsuki is already the enemy of the entire Ninja World, and we can’t tolerate them. Raikage-sama also has other things to discuss with others, so he decided to hold a Five Kages conference.”
“Understood. And the place is the Country of Iron. Looks like it is still safe. Go back and tell Raikage that I promised that I will be on time.”
Hearing this, Kumogakure Ninja smiled, “Thank you for your understanding, Tsunade-sama!”
“Well, I leave the rest to you, Kakashi!” Tsunade turned and left after finishing talking.
In the Hokage building, Namikaze Minato took the letter from Fourth Raikage from Tsunade.
Just now, Tsunade agreed to what he said in the letter. Minato understood. After reading the letter, he also felt that this meeting should be attended. The decision made by Tsunade was correct.
“Ryo, look at this!”
As Minato handed the letter to Yamanaka Ryo, Yamanaka Ryo just waved his hand and said, “It’s already been decided, it’s alright. What we should discuss now is about who should go.” “
“Who’s going? It must be Minato! I’m not Hokage anymore,” Tsunade said directly.
“Well, then Minato-nii, let’s go. Kakashi and I will be guarding you. How about it?”
Namikaze Minato nodded.
