It has already been over three years since Leo learned how to practice the sword from Haku. Every day, Haku would watch how he trains and give him pointers for improving himself. During this period has grown at a tremendous rate under Hakus mentorship.
A boy stands on the cliff before the vast sea. He seems like a tiny dot compared to the expansive ocean before him. Yet, up close, you can see the boy on the tip of the cliff practicing a single vertical slice of the blade again and again tirelessly.
There is a deep concentration as his brows knit together on that young face brimming with youthhood. And beads of sweat flow down from his black hair where the golden sun above shines its light down on him.
The tree on the cliff slowly extends its shade over his body as the time passes by so fast while he continues to practice.
Haku came over, sat beneath the tree, and watched Leo calmly practicing without disturbing him. Theres a sense of pride in his eyes as he watches his student become so concentrated on his practice.
Opening his eyes after his concentration became exhausted, Jon took a look at the stats from the system:
Observation Haki: Level 5 (5/100)
Armament Haki: Level 5 (6/100)
Conquerors Haki: Level 4 (95/100)
Physical Power: Level 4 (60/100)
Sword Ability: Level 5 (33/100)
Every day he had not to stop training. His Physical Power is already at Level 4, and he is strong enough that even the sharp claws of the strongest beasts in the forest couldn kill him. He felt that when he reaches Level 15, his physique might even be more indestructible than the body of Kaido.
It is getting harder and harder to even push through by a single experience point. If he didn have Haku giving him the insight, he wouldn be able to reach Level 4 in Sword Ability right now.
Haku came behind him and put his arm over his shoulders, saying, ”Come now, boy. Lets get some food going in your system. ” Leo looked over with admiration at the old guy, smiling as he walked back to the hut.
The two eat there in the evening as the sun begins setting itself on the grand ocean. Theres the quiet sound of the crickets over the forest. It all seems so peaceful. The island isn loud or boisterous, with the sound of peace of the birds and insects.
Haku looked over at Leo, who was eating with happiness. During this period that he had trained, Haku treated him like his son and helped him master the sword every step. And every night, he would tell him about all his knowledge, like the different species of plants and how to navigate at sea.
He has genuinely grown in these three years. He had mastered the sword to the point where it takes a regular person 20-30 years, Haku thought to himself as he smiled, seeing Leo eating the large chunk of meat in his hands. And even a prodigy would need at least ten years to reach this skill point.
One day, this boy will shake the entire world and be renowned throughout, he thought with a confident grin. Maybe it is time that I shall go to my next destination.
That night Leo slept soundly through the night as usual, but when he woke up, he discovered that the Old Man wasn there anymore.
He walked over to the table to pick up the blade Haku had left behind, the black blade he always had with him.
”That old geezer, ” Leo whispered to himself. Then, he picked up the short letter that the man left behind for him:
”Boy, there is nothing more I can teach you anymore. It would be best if you discovered your Way.
Explore this world out there, don stay forever in one place. Find your adventure.
Create your own story, don just listen to the tales of another.
Also, the black blade Katsu is now yours. Think of it as my last gift to you, and Im sure you will make its name famous worldwide one day.
-Old Man Haku ”
Leo had a smile on his face as he grabbed the sword and put it carefully, walking outside the hut and to the sea where they used to talk. He could sense with his Haki that the Old Man had left the island as he breathed a sigh and watched over the vast sea.
He said in the direction of the wind, ”Old Man, one day you will hear my name again. Thank you for your teachings, and I will keep them forever in my heart. ” Leo bowed towards the great sea in front of him.
”I think it is time that I set out to explore the world and find my adventure like the Old Man said, ” Leo looked calmly towards the shining water of the sea. He like the scenery of this world, the way the water seems so clear, and the air that is so refreshing.
He wonders to himself what kind of wild adventure awaits him. Especially the people he will meet in the grand world out there.
In a couple of days, Leo had already finished with his preparation. He was visiting all the spots on the island because he knew he would not be returning.
As he was walking toward the beach, a group of silver monkeys circled him, and they had a menacing look. He could see the fists tightening as they were ready to take him down and slaughter him.
”Look what we have here, ” Leo said to himself as he casually dodged away the punches the monkeys swung at him. ”You guys are too weak. ”
Using his Conquers Haki, he unleashed its power over the monkeys, and the monkeys found their bodies immobilized. It felt like a giant mountain was over their shoulders, and they all kneeled to the ground from that force.
