It was just that the young handmaid put Chizuko Nagato in her embrace and let her sit in her arms. Then, Axiu opened Chizuko Nagato’s treasured “Kojiki.” She became a little worried because she knew limited words.
But thinking that this was Miss Chizuko’s most anticipated time of the day, Axiu gritted her teeth and read the words that she could recognize, “Frog…En…pond…Well, is this the word pond? Then, how should I read it? Hmm, that’s probably it. Miss Chizuko, do you get it?”
“Axiu, you are so stupid!”
Mo Xiaofei did not go far. He somersaulted through the window and left, but he still hid outside. Watching this scene between Axiu and Chizuko Nagato unfold, Mo Xiaofei smiled.
He then quickly left this place. It was time to meet Saburo Nagato and Nagato Munechika. He was worried about Saburo Nagato confronting the terrifying Nagato Munechika.
Before meeting Nagato Munechika, Saburo Nagato thought to himself that his brother would at least show a hint of anger. But, he was a little disappointed in the end.
Looking at Nagato Munechika’s gray hair on the temples, Saburo Nagato became quiet.
There were only two brothers here. As for Shinji Nagato, Nagato Munechika had sent him away already.
Nagato Munechika sat quietly for a while and said, “Saburo, are you not going to give me an explanation?”
Saburo Nagato said calmly, “Brother, what kind of explanation do you plan to let me give you?”
This is unlike the usual Saburo Nagato. Nagato Munechika thought. But Nagato Munechika still held his patience. His patience had always been great, “Saburo, you know what I want to hear. Why didn’t you get rid of the two women who tested the medicine but let them walk in the sight of the villagers? Is this related to the mysterious samurai?”
Saburo Nagato nodded.
“Have you seen him? Have you spoken to him?” Nagato Munechika’s eyes narrowed.
This was Saburo Nagato’s dreaded gaze. The gaze contained so many things that Saburo Nagato could barely bear it.
The majesty of the Nagato family master, the elder brother’s power, bullying, and so forth.
“Yes.” Saburo Nagato lowered his gaze and slowly said, “The samurai knew that there is no curse. Those so-called magical medicines are nothing but flour and sugar. But, who knows that? After all, the two women who tried the medicine survived their last day of a month.”
“Give me an explanation.” Nagato Munechika shook his head, “Saburo, I don’t want to waste too much time on you. Tell me if you have found that little bit of pitiful self-esteem, plan to deal with me with this samurai? Since you came in, I saw the hatred in your eyes.”
“Just as you said, brother.” Saburo Nagato became calmer and calmer.
“You should die on the battlefield. That is your best destination.” Nagato Munechika shook his head again. “I don’t know what kind of method the samurai used to find out the secret of the Unripe Rice Village curse. I am not interested in knowing what kind of agreement you have with this Samurai.”
“My elder brother finally couldn’t help it. Do you want to murder me here?” Saburo Nagato sneered and then shook his head, “Actually, I shouldn’t make fun of you. I don’t have the qualifications. Although you tempted me to commit such sins to Haru Narukami, it proves that I was too incompetent. But don’t worry, brother, I will hold your head to make atonement before Haru.
“You?” Nagato Munechika also sneered, motionless, “Have you learned the Nagato Sword Technique from Shinji secretly?”
“Killing my brother is the crime of treason, after all.” Saburo Nagato stood up slowly. His eyes locked on Nagato Munechika, “So, I’m aware of my eventual death. If I can kill my brother, I will commit Seppuku  before Haru later. If I lose to my brother, then sprinkle my ashes under the cherry blossom trees in the courtyard belonging to Haru and me.”
“For the sake of you also having the blood of the Nagato family, I promise you.” Nagato Munechika closed his eyes.
The katana was wielded.
But the katana was no longer sharp. There were rusts on the blade. Since coming back from the battlefield, Saburo Nagato had not taken care of it well.
He vaguely remembered that this was the katana he had received from Nagato Munechika before the expedition. It was almost one of the best katanas in the Nagato family and should have been inherited by Shinji.
This was a prop in exchange for Haru Narukami.
Saburo Nagato exploded with an amazing aura. It was something he had never had on the battlefield.
The rusty blade slashed at Nagato Munechika’s neck just like that. Saburo Nagato didn’t expect that his elder brother didn’t avoid it; the opponent didn’t even intend to block it.
The blade cut Nagato Munechika’s neck, but it was hindered at this time. What laid in front of the blade wasn’t a neck but seemingly a hard rock.
“How could it be?” Saburo Nagato’s eyes were full of disbelief.
“Now, you should know the gap between you and me.” Nagato Munechika sneered. Behind him, there was a tail revealed.
Nagato Munechika grabbed the blade of Saburo Nagato’s katana with one hand. By exerting some slight force, the grip broke the katana’s blade directly, “I will mix your ashes into the mud to expand the ‘Longevity Palace.'”
Saburo Nagato yelled violently.
“Like I said, you don’t have that kind of strength to go against me.” Nagato Munechika shook his head and reached out his hand. “The gap between you and me is heaven and earth. You can never beat me.”
“What if you count me in too?”
Nagato Munechika felt his body becoming extremely heavy as if a mountain was pressing on him. At this moment, that sound reached his ears. His body was pressed to the ground!
The knee hits the ground. If it were not for soft tatami mats, the bones would have been broken!
Nagato Munechika’s body was under more intense pressure at this moment. His body was pressed to the ground, rendered unable to move!
He lifted his head stubbornly, only to see a desolate samurai opening the door and walking in slowly.
“Sorry, I just learned this ability. I didn’t control it well.” The samurai said calmly, “I call it “gravity.” I have used it to destroy the Unripe Rice Village once. But, I think it’s more fitting to use it against you.”
“Who are you!?” Nagato Munechika gritted his teeth and squeezed out his words while his body was struggling frantically.
“I’m just a passerby who wants to be a hero because of his interest. But this path is arduous.”
As he just finished speaking, a figure pounced over.
With a roaring voice, Saburo Nagato inserted the broken blade into Nagato Munechika’s back fiercely. The blade went in!
