Raavan One Piece - Chapter 11
Chapter 11 Farewell
“Huh!” Zoro emphasized, he was the kind of person who became more frustrated and brave, knowing that the greater the gap between himself and the goal, the harder and harder he worked!
“Raavan, can you tell me, why you don’t want to practice swordsmanship?” Zoro is really confused, after all, he can see that Raavan’s talent is much higher than himself.
Raavan smiled, and said: “Well, first tell me, do you like swordsmanship?”
“Can you leave swordsmanship if your talent is power?”
“No, definitely not!!”
Raavan smiled, and said: “Same reason. I like to fight with my fist and kick. So, I didn’t choose swordsmanship. But I know how powerful swordsman can be, so I came here to spar with them, and took the experience from it.”
Zoro finally nodded his head in understanding.
Raavan and Zoro discussed some precautions about practicing the sword in the tide, and he came to the inaccessible west coast a little further away.
Unlike Zoro’s east coast for sword training, the west coast has more strange rocks, more complicated terrain, and the waves are more fickle.
However, Raavan prefers to be here. The stones stand here, forming a stone forest, or a natural “plum blossom pile”!
Raavan started to enter into the sea, and until water didn’t reach upto his shoulders, he didn’t stop.
After doing that he started punching forward, and kicking, and Thai Boxing methods.
Therefore, he found the strange rocky coast that the people of Village would hardly come.
Raavan hopes to find a deeper breath of water and the breath of stones in this wonderful place formed by long-term natural action.
He made a plan for himself. When his punch can break this stone, it was the day when he decided to go to sea to fight!
Raavan stood in the middle of the stone forest and looked in the direction of Cocoyasi Village. After a moment of silence, he started his second phase of training.
Another month later, Raavan’s strength got almost triple than previous month.
And today is the day when he tried to punch on this stone.
Raavan strength increment is really too surprising. He can easily win against Zoro in strength, but if Zoro uses sword, there is no chance.
But dodging Zoro attacks is no problem.
If he goes to the sea, he can face atleast 5 Million Beri bounty pirate. And if he fight against 10 Million, he will be atleast safe. But more that is impossible.
By the way, it is worth mentioning that during this period, Raavan found that not only his strength increased, even his durability, recovery ability, stamina also increased.
Although there are no specific figures, Raavan is aware. After all, he now recover faster when he got tired from the exercise.
Of course, analyze the specific situation. If you encounter Buggy, he will die. However, if it is similar to Captain Kuro and Alvida, he can still fight it. If it is impossible to defeat, he can atleast drag them to death with his high stamina.
Raavan took a deep breath and slowly walked to the stone of his choice, two meters high. He stood with his eyes closed and control his best state, and gather all strength to his right fist.
For a moment of silence, Raavan opened his eyes suddenly. He stared at the stone in front of him, and then quickly punched.
As soon as his fist touched the stone, ‘Bang!!!’
2 meter height stone immediately started to crumble.
Although not reached to the level where crumble and flew in opposite direction. But still in reasonable range.
Raavan really succeeded!
In just two months, his strength reached to level where most people might never reach in this much time.
Since Raavan has accomplished his goal of strengthening himself, then his next thing about to start!
Next is the day to ascend the mighty sea, fight endless opponents, hone your fighting skills and improve your level.
Koushirou never spar with him, and other than Zoro, all of them are waste. So, fighting with pirates and Navy is much better than staying here.
The next day, Raavan changed into a new dress. Because of the high intensity exercise in the past two months, not only did he have muscle bulges, he had also grown a lot in height. He may not have been as high as Nojiko before, but now he should have a height of about 1.9 meter.
He couldn’t wear any previous clothes, but fortunately, the uncle from the village who often came to see his son. He help him purchase the clothes. After all, Raavan still has his 200,000 Beri. Although most of them are spent, when he asked Blacksmith to create weight which can be tied to his body.
Raavan walked through the colleagues who had studied with each other in the dojo, asked them a good question, and turned into the place where Koushirou was resting.
As soon as he entered the door, Raavan smelled a good smell of tea, and then saw it here … Zoro!
Raavan looked at Zoro, wondering, “Zoro, why are you here?”
Zoro glanced at him and asked, “I also want to know why you’re here.”
Raavan turned his eyes, surprised, “Zoro, aren’t you lost?”
“Fuck off!” Zoro snorted, and then said, “You’re lost. I came to say goodbye to the teacher and Kuina.”
Raavan pointed at Zoro and looked at Koushirou, who was squinting silently for tea, and asked, “Teacher, he won’t really go?”
Koushirou nodded, put the tea cup in his hand back on the table, turned to look at Raavan, and laughed: “Yes, Zoro is leaving, and is starting to pursue his dream.
Raavan, I guess, you’re here and you’re planning to say goodbye to me, right?”
Raavan nodded and replied: “I think I have reached to the level where only life and death fight will increase my strength.”
Koushirou said: “Raavan, you are the most talented child in swordplay I have ever seen, and I really have regrets when you choose the different path. But everyone has different path, that I can understand.”
Raavan said, “Teacher, I really like beat people with my fist whoever wants to hurt my family. That is the most satisfying feeling I have.”
“Just like devil fruit have a side-effect that person will useless when fall into the sea, in same manner, I personally think, swordsman became useless without sword.”
Koushirou eyebrow wrinkled when he heard this. After all, how can he admit the hole in swordsmanship.
But Raavan continue: “Yeah, that’s the completely different concept if Swordsman reached to the level where he don’t need a sword. Like ‘Sword in heart.’
Koushirou eyes immediately became dim, and started thinking.
After a while, Koushirou nodded and said, “Very good, very good. You really opened my eyes, Raavan. Thank you.”
Koushirou voice is really filled with gratitude.
“However, the teacher has a small request, can you please agree?”
Raavan and Zoro looked at each other and nodded, “Please say.”
Koushirou continued: “Well, the teacher has only one small boat.
So if you leave, you can only squeeze two people on the teacher’s boat before you find a new one.
“Don’t you think the teacher is stingy?”
