The 20th chapter of Claymore by Norihiro Yagi, first published in the May 2001 issue of Shonen Jump.
Priscilla asks Teresa why she did not submit to her execution since she broke the Organization's rule, which Priscilla believes must be held up at all costs. Teresa simply answers that the real world is not so black and white. Priscilla lunges at her and they begin to battle, and Priscilla is able to fight on par with her. On the sidelines, Irene explains to a marveling Noel why Teresa is called "Teresa of the Faint Smile" - that it is her only visible defining aspect. In truth, however, she is an expert at reading Yoki and predicting what the enemy will do in advance. Thus, fighting Priscilla will be a challenge for her. The battle escalates, but Teresa begins to overcome Priscilla, and Irene draws her sword.
