Hmm, ask me any other day and I would decline. But today, I am utterly bored.
Mihawk! I, Roranoa Zoro, challenge you to a duel!
Damn! I'm hitting harder and harder but nothing's happening! I got it! Maybe it's the way I'm hitting. I need to use the forbidden move.
You won't win Zoro!
Here we find Zoro, a young, skillful swordsman, out training. He plans to duel a rival swordsman, Mihawk, when he see's him.
Single Sword Style: 36 Caliber Phoenix!
As if by luck, it appeared that Mihawk was on his morning stroll. In a rush of adrenaline, Zoro demands to duel Mihawk. Surprisingly, Mihawk excepts, and they prepare to duel.
You w--cough-cough--won. Now, please leave. I don't want to be seen like this.
The duel is underway and Zoro does not have the confidence that he can win. He is hitting harder and harder but Mihawk is taking no damage. During his physical struggle, he is having an internal struggle also. He doe's not think he can win. He decides to use and old forbidden move to win.
I need to improve my technique. That is the only way for me to truly get stronger.
Zoro uses the long forgotten move, 36 Caliber Phoenix. The aura that the move gives off surprises Mihawk. The slash is too fast to comprehend, but the aftermath is clear.
The blow was enough to knock Mihawk through a house. Mihawk, devastated by the attack, admits defeat. Zoro, instead of celebrating, reflects on the fight.
The next day, Zoro reflects on the past duel. It seems like it happened seconds ago. Zoro realizes that hitting harder, isn't the way to get stronger. He has to learn different techniques. That is the only way.
