Of course I most likely wouldn't have won if Goku hadn't given me a senzu bean.(Thanks again, Goku.) After eating that thing I felt pretty good. I really didn't talk to anyone else on my way to the Qualification round, I felt that they would just distract me.
I had already arrived before everyone else did, hoping that Gohan would decide to make an early arrival, but he didn't. Since he wasn't there yet, I decided to have a seat and think of some strategy to use against him....I must've been thinking too hard though because I suddenly felt someone tapping me on my shoulder.
I looked up and saw Gohan looking down at me, frowning slightly...."What are you thinking about Vegeto?" he asked. "Nothing", I muttered. "You ready yet?" I demanded impatiently. He looked slightly taken aback by my tone, but he just simply nodded and told me good luck.
I responded to his wish of good luck with my back and walked into the ring, arms at my sides, swinging slightly. I didn't mean any disrespect to you Gohan, its just that I wasn't in a talkative mood, thats all. Anyway, once I was in the ring on "my" side, I turned to face Gohan....
Just in time to see him dashing towards me, fist raised to strike me down. He caught me off guard, so the only thing I could really do for right now was go on the defensive, which I did. I side-stepped him when he swung, but he was expecting it, and as soon as I dodged him, he followed it up with a kick that surely would've knocked me out....
Had I not blocked it. I swung at him and he blocked. For a few seconds thats all it was, kicks, knees, elbows, punches, all blocked by me or him. But he suddenly caught me off my guard with a sweep out of nowhere and I landed on my back. As soon as my back hit the ground, I was right back up, but Gohan had already gone back to the other side of the ring, and I noticed a cocky little smile was on his face.
The only thing I wanted to do right then was to wipe that silly grin off of his face, but I told myself to be calm and not rush into an attack, because thats what he expects. I realized it was time to put my strategy into action. I raised up my hand and beckoned him to come to me, and he did....Slowly.
He was calmly walking up to me with that same little grin on his face. He was taunting me! You would think he'd be cautious, but I could tell that he thought he was going to win, and all he did was sweep me! He stopped an inch from my face, and I could see in his eyes that he was expecting a sweep or a knee of some kind, so I did the opposite.
I gave him a headbutt.
It must've been hard enough, because he stumbled back a couple of steps, and I was suddenly on the offensive. Since he wasn't that far away I just took a couple of steps and WHAM! he slammed his fist in my gut. This totally took me by surprise, he tricked me, and boy can he hit hard! It hurt, but I sucked up the pain and delivered an elbow to his face, followed immediately by another elbow to his face.
He actually stumbled for real this time, and right when he regained his bearings, I appeared behind him and kicked him in the back of his leg, bringing him to a knee. It must've hurt too, because he had a pained look on his face, and I had a vague hope that I didn't break anything, even though I was also thinking that should teach him not to be so cocky.
I stepped back a couple of steps and watched him. The poor guy was trying to get up, but he couldn't. Sensing defeat, he looked at me as though ready for any attack I might have. I went ahead and backed up till I reached the other side of the ring, and, running as fast as I could, I ran up to him and kicked him right in the face, knocking him out cold.
While it was going around that I won the Qualifying round, I carried Gohan out of the ring so his dad could give him a senzu bean. After I "delivered" him to Goku, I decided to walk around and watch some of the other fights. Hmph, nothing I can't handle....
I was slighlty curious about the Junior Division, so I went ahead and watched that. By the way, congratulations on your victory Mikomi, you did a good job....
