After all, there’s nothing but fear reflected in your sword.
When you dodge, “I’m afraid of getting cut”.

When you attack, “I’m afraid of cutting someone”.
Even when you try to protect someone; “I’m afraid of letting them die”.
Yes, your sword only speaks to me of absurd fear.
That’s not it.
What’s neccesary in a fight isn’t fear.
Nothing can be born from that.

If you dodge, “I won’t let them cut me”.
If you protect someone, “I won’t let them die”.
If you attack, “I’ll cut them”.

Well can’t you see…
… the resolve to cut you reflected in my sword?
