Chapter 35: Punching Spikes is a Bad Idea
Nami and Miss Double Finger looked each other. Nami crack her knuckles, before finding out about her past life she would have been nervous fighting an opponents like this. But now… now things were different.
"You really think you're going to beat me?" asked Ms. Double Finger.
"I'm sure I can." Said Nami.
She ran over to punch Ms. Double Finger.
"Really punches?" asked Ms. Double Finger with a smirk.
"Yeah… really!" said Nami.
"This is going to be an easy fight." Said Ms. Double Finger.
"What's that supposed to mean?" asked Nami.
"You'll see when you try to fight me." Said Ms. Double Finger with a smirk.
Nami glared at her opponent.
"You have another thing coming." Said Nami.
She aimed a pinch at Ms. Double Finger who just smirked.
That was when Ms. Double Finger's face began to stretch strange in a strange way.
Nami watched in horror as her face turned to spikes but it was too late to stop herself and her hand was palmed by the spikes.
She cried out in pain.
"You know about Devil Fruits… well I ate the Spike Spike Fruit, which allows me to grow spikes all over my body." Said Ms. Double Finger with a smirk.
"Seriously!" yelled Nami as she started to heal her hand.
"So you're the one with super strength, that won't help you at all." Said Ms. Double Finger, "After all if you can't hurt me what's the point of having super strength."
Nami glared at her opponent, but then had to dodge as Ms. Double Finger turned her arm in to a spike and aimed at her.
"I have to figure out something." Thought Nami.
She decided to run away.
"I can't believe I'm doing this." She thought as she ran away.
"Seriously?" asked Ms. Double Finger following Nami.
As Nami ran she thought what she could do, after using her super strange was a bad idea.
"This is bad… I shouldn't have focused my training on my strength." She thought.
She began to think what else she could do in order to fight off Ms Double Finger.
Then she remembered her staff.
"Okay I have to figure out how to channel chakra into it." Thought Nami pulling it out and piecing it together.
"Hopefully this will work," said Nami.
"You really think that dinky little think will help you?" asked Ms. Double Finger.
"I can try." Said Nami.
Nami ran towards her with her staff, she whacked Ms. Double Finger with it, channeling her chakra into it, but it wasn't enough.
The staff broke thanks to the spikes.
Nami began to sweat.
"Cute." Said Ms. Double Finger.
Nami once again began to run away.
"Great... just great… I had to be fighting someone I can't beat." Thought Nami.
That was when she saw something in the distance, an outcropping.
"That's it!" thought Nami, "Of course, perfect!"
Ms. Double Finger of course gave chase.
"What is she up to?" asked Ms. Double Finger.
They got to the outcropping.
"You expect to win here?" Ms. Double Finger asked.
"You seriously don't get it." Said Nami.
Ms. Double Finger glared at Nami wondering what her plan was.
Which was soon answered when Nami punched a nearby rock sending it flying at Ms Double Finger.
The rock came so fast that she wasn't able to react to it.
It hit her hard, but she was able to recover.
"That… that was something…" said Ms. Double Finger with a slight daze.
"There's no way you can win." Said Nami with a smirk.
"You might think that but none of us Officer Agents will lose." Said Ms. Double Finger.
"What about Mr. 3?" asked Nami with a sweat drop.
Ms. Double Finger blinked.
"Okay… I forgot he was fighting a man with fire powers." She said with a sweat drop.
Ms. Double Finger seemed to come out of her daze and realized what to do.
She began to use her spikes to break up the rocks.
Nami watched her with a slight sigh, she really wasn't surprised by this turn.
"Seriously?" asked Nami not even sounding exasperated.
"There's no way you can beat me now." Said Ms. Double Finger with a smirk.
Nami picked up one of the broken piece of rock and punched it at her, this time Ms. Double Finger was able to dodge.
The rock flew by like a bullet, causing Ms. Double Finger to sweat. However Ms Double Finger knew that it wouldn't be that easy.
Nami started punching more rocks at her, but she produced more and spikes and used them to tossed them aside.
Nami stopped doing it and came up with a new plan.
"That's it!" thought Nami with a smirk.
She ducked behind a large outcropping.
"Running again?" asked Ms. Double Finger.
"No!" said Nami get out of from behind it.
"Seriously that's your plan?" asked Ms. Double Finger.
"You haven't' seen anything yet!" said Nami.
She ran towards Ms. Double Finger seemly wanting to face her head on.
"This isn't going to work." Said Ms. Double Finger.
"You have no idea." Said Nami.
She dodged Ms. Double Finger's attacks, yet never trying to land her own.
"Dodging isn't going to help you know." Said Ms. Double Finger.
That was when she finally landed a hit on Nami.
However suddenly, Nami suddenly exploded into smoke.
"What the!" yelled Ms. Double Finger.
Indeed the Nami who was dodging was just a clone.
The real one was getting her final attack ready.
While Ms. Double Finger was distracted by the turn of events, she didn't notice the real Nami kicking a huge rock at her.
"I hope this works." Thought the real Nami.
Ms. Double Finger didn't notice until it was too late, but the boulder hit her hard, knocking her out.
"All right!" cheered Nami.
She began to heal her arm, which was injured from when she tried to punch her.
"I have to work on other Jutsus." Sighed Nami.
She also held up a her staff, "And maybe get an upgrade." She sighed.
Meanwhile with Zoro he was looking at his opponent.
It wasn't going to be an easy fight. After all Mr. 1's Devil Fruit was incredibly strong… and something Zoro would have to use all his skills to overcome.
