CHAPTER TWO– THE MYSTERIOUS SWORDSMAN
Tsuna was walking home from school. He was still curious about who the Rain Guardian was. The battle of the Rain Guardians was today and he could not think of anyone who could win Squalo, the famed man with his sword.
He opened the front door of his house and went in. He realized that they had a visitor. The visitor was a guy in his twenties, judging by the tone of his voice. Tsuna held his breath. Was he the Rain Guardian?
He peeked into the living room. The guy was a Japanese man with ultramarine colored hair. The length of his hair was exactly the same length as Squalo’s. He wore an elaborately decorated jet-black uniform, with a sliver cross on his left chest. He looked like he belonged to some organization.
“Tsuna, you’re back! Please say hello to our guest.” Mama called out to Tsuna, after spotting him peeking from a corner.
Tsuna showed himself and took a few steps to the stranger.
“Please call me Kanda-san,” the man said in a very businesslike voice and continued, “I have been requested by the Ninth Boss of the Vongola Family to fight for a certain Sawada-san. Is the person he stated in the letter you?”
“I can’t believe I’m fighting for a tiny sprout like you. Why, you’re even smaller than Allen Walker!”
Tsuna did not know who Allen Walker was, but seeing the frightening look on Kanda’s face, he had no choice but to say something in response.
Mama clapped her hands together, breaking the tension that was forming in the atmosphere.
“Okay Tsu-chan! It’s time for you to do your homework!”
It was the first time Tsuna wanted to start homework so much.
Just as long as I do not meet him again, he thought.
A few hours later…
“Bye, Mama!” Tsuna said before closing the door behind him. He was escorting Kanda to his school for the fight.
Upon reaching the school, his other family members all crowded around him, asking him questions about Kanda. He told them that he would be their Rain Guardian.
“Is your Guardian such a big fan of me that he has the same hairstyle as me?” Squalo taunted.
Kanda did not like to lose. “Only the people with mental problems will idolize you, Baka.” He tied his hair up into a high ponytail and unsheathed his katana. Squalo followed suit, unsheathing his sword.
The Cervello appeared again and informed them about the rules of the battle. It was to be held in School Building B. The building will slowly be filled with water from a tank, and when the water reaches a certain height, a ferocious sea beast will be let out in the building.
“Che. What an easy task. I can win this in a matter of moments,” Kanda said.
The two Rain Guardians followed the Cervello into the school building.
“Let the battle begin.”
The door slammed shut and the two Guardians went into their fighting stances, circling each other, trying to find their opponent’s weak spot. Finally, Kanda sliced his sword in the air. A bunch of golden strands fell to the ground.
“How dare you do this to my HAIR!! I’ll kill you for this!!” Squalo howled, his hair now half his original length.
“Bakas like you shouldn’t have long hair – such an insult to real swordsmen.”
Kanda barely managed to dodge a violent swing and had to step back to keep his balance.
“Now to show the true power of a real swordsman: Innocence, activate.”
Tsuna and the others watched with wonder when they saw Kanda’s katana glowing brightly. The handle of the sword was encased with a green light that seemed to draw power from its wielder’s arm.
A sliver light shone from the katana and came towards Squalo at high speed. It looked like a creature with many red eyes. Hitting the blond man, it knocked him out.
“Kanda-san is the winner of this battle. The victory goes to the Vongola and the score is currently 1-1”
The members of the Vongola family rejoiced. Ryohei tried to hug Kanda in congratulations but was pushed off by an unwilling Kanda.
“Che. It was just my job. I gotta be going back to the Black Order now – Komui is calling me.” He muttered, flagging down a taxi to go to the airport.
The Vongola family could not believe what had happened. The battle that took place before their eyes was almost like a dream. Yamamoto kept on jabbering on about how cool the katana of Kanda’s was and the incredible moves it could administer.
More strangely, the mysterious swordsman departed as mysteriously as he came.
