Soon the Mist Ninjas were devastated, and could only try to escape. The Hozuki clan's head and the Mizukage's saw the way things were developing and abandoned their battles. Even though Konoha was in a great disadvantage at the start, things developed differently. Ryu Senju killed all of the Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist, and then came to the battlefield in time, killing over two thousand Ninjas with his Ice arrow. By all means that was the Mist's defeat.
However, Konoha's victory could only be described as a tragic one. The Barrier, medical and wounded Ninjas left behind in Konoha's camp were all killed by the seven swordsmen. On the battlefield, there were nearly a thousand between wounded and killed. This was the most brutal bloodbath that I ever had to witness ever since he started participating in the 3rd World War. Upon returning to Konoha's camp, after the battle, the casualties were reported to Shikaku, who put the medics into work.
Seeing the situation, I teleported back to the Hokage's office and reported him of the situation and told him to arrange some more medical ninjas. I then went home and asked my mother to help to which she agreed. An hour later on top of the Hokage's office, Hiruzen had arranged over 20 medical ninjas ready. I went with Tsunade to the top of Hokage's office. Hiruzen was waiting for us. After seeing us he said "Ryu, you have contributed greatly for the village in the war. I don't know how to thank you". I simply replied "This is the village created by my great grandfather and I have an obligation to protect my home. But I'm dissatisfied with one thing".
Hiruzen immediately spoke "What is it Ryu? Tell me and I'll do everything in my power to correct it." I nodded and said "Who was it that sent young Genins like Gai and others to the battlefield to get slaughtered? They are the future of the village and the Kings. I hope you look into it and not let it happen again. Only send chunin and jonin ninjas to fight. If they can't handle it, tell me and I'll visit the battlefield and help". Hiruzen frowned hearing me, but he nodded and said "I'll look into it. Now take them and help the injured on the battlefield. I wish you luck. I also nodded and we all disappeared in an yellow flash. After we left, Hiruzen thought 'I have to fight with Danzo and the advisors again sigh.' And sighed.
I teleported to the battlefield with my mother and the medical ninjas. As soon as we got there, we started treating the wounded and saved most of the ninjas. Tsunade being here also increased the morale of everyone as now they have two Kage level ninjas and was not worried about the mist attacking. I also created many 4 pillar house for the medical team as It was easy to sanitise the houses and they were safe than tents. Like that, It took us 3 days to stabilise the situation and finish the treatment of the wounded. I was tired after all this and slept for a whole night and day.
Shikaku Nara was incharge of the battlefield till now. After resting, I arrived at his tent. As soon as I went in, he asked "Ryu are you conscious that you have become the General Commander of this whole country's battlefield?" I answered "I am and I have Shikaku san by my side. What could I ever need to be conscious about?" Shikaku sighed and said "What a drag!". The following days, I just had rest and left everything to Shikaku to manage as I knew he's very smart and loyal.
At the same time, in the Water Country's Hidden Mist Village, the 3rd Mizukage was discussing the plans for the next battle with the village's elders. "Not too long ago, I received news from the frontline. Konoha sent a Kage Tier powerhouse to the Wave Country. He killed the seven swswordsmen of the mist and When he arrived to the battlefield, he defeated Bing Yuki." Said the 3rd Misukage. Speaking of the 3rd Mizukage, he was gray-haired old man. He seemed to be of the same age as Onoki, or slightly younger. In fact, he was of the same generation as the 2nd Tsuchikage, and much older than Onoki. Back at the 1st Kage summit, he was already an adult as he escorted the 1st Mizukage to meet with Hashirama and the rest.
"Mizukage sama, let me try in the next battle!" The only young man in the conference room spoke. "Yagura, you cannot leave the village. It won't take us long before we need a new Jinchuriki. You are capable of suppressing the Sanbi's power. If an accident was to happen, how would we handle the matter of the Sanbi?" "Yes, you cannot leave Yagura!" The 3rd Mizukage and the village's elders were in agreement. Yagura is born to suppress the consciousness of the Sanbi. He is most fitting to become the next Jinchuriki.
Even without the Sanbi, Yagura was Kage tier. The 3rd believed that he was going to definitely bring along a new future for the Mist. He was so unlikely to let him take such a risk at the time. Everyone's unanimous rejection sent him back to his seat helplessly. "Everyone, I'll go to the wave county myself, and this new Kage tier will be taken care of by this old man." After some thinking, the 3rd Mizukage decided to go by himself.
This time, the elders had no objections. The 3rd Mizukage was extremely powerful, and one of the strongest Kage tier Ninjas at the time. "Good, since everyone agrees. While I'm there, the ruling of this village will be handed over to Yagura, and the elders are to support and help him." Said the Mizukage. "Yes, Mizukage sama!" The elders agreed.
I was resting at a house I created instead of the commander's tent. Right then, a Hyuga clan Ninja came rushing. "Ryu Sama, Shikaku san wants you to get back immediately and hold a meeting." He said. "Okay! Understood!" I agreed, and let the Hyuga Ninja inform the clans' representatives and the Jonins in the camp, while I went directly to find Shikaku to understand the situation first hand.
