I hope you enjoy read and review please
the reviews bring me joy and give me my motivation.
Dodging a numerous amount of butcher knifes and sharp silverware thrown by the demon chief with summer-salts, dives, back-flips, jumps, splits and alot of weird poses. Luffy ran about the ship leaving knives or forks pierced in the floor, walls and the mast(not in the sails though).
Luffy ,clearly enjoying himself, laughed that every time he popped a mikan(tangerine)
tart in his mouth Sanji's actions only sped up. *This is fun it's almost like a game of tag*
Jumping to dodge a knife, Luffy popped another tart into his mouth. "Your gonna have to be quicker than that Sanji!!!" Luffy taunted as he turned around facing his pursuer ,for a moment, to pull his eyelid down and stick his tongue out before continuing to dash away from the one-eyed man.
Boiling with rage Sanji felt a vain pop at the taunt. "STOP RUNNING YOU COWARD!!! AND GIVE BACK NAMI-SAN'S AND ROBIN-CHAN'S SNACK YOU RUBBER-GLUTTON!!!" Sanji yelled enraged that yet another tart was inhaled by his Captain. In hope of stopping him, Sanji threw some utensils at Luffy only to sink into the mast.
Heading towards the foremast(the mast in the middle Luffy used the utensils that were lodge into the mast as a latter. Sanji ,who had reached the bottom of the mast, made sure to to dodge the of the falling kitchen equipment that were loosened from their place from Luffy stepping on them.
Luffy kept climbing the make-shift ladder til reaching the last step ,which was a little bit higher from the middle of the mast, and sat down on the sturdy, half buried and two in a half feet long roasting stick.
Luffy leaning forward with the tarts resting in hos lap,one hand on the roasting stick, and the other hand blocking the sun gazed down at the now doll sized Sanji who was currently trying to tell him something. Using his free hand Luffy cupped his ear and pointed his ear towards Sanji.
"WHAT SANJI? I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!! SPEAK UP!!!" Luffy screamed before grabbing another handful of the tarts and stuffing it into his mouth.
I SAID TO STOP EATING THOSE!!! THAT'S IT I'M COMING UP THERE!!!" Sanji replied as he started to gathered up some knifes to make himself a latter.
Luffy ,still unable to hear his blonde headed friend, continued happily munching on his mikan tart treats. Licking his lips with content after eating most of the tarts put the last one in the pocket on his vest,sewed on by Nami. "A snack for later." He said lightly patting the pocket so not to damage the tart inside.
In the corner of his eye Luffy catches a glimpse of bright blue. Turning in that direction Luffy could see Franky, Brook, Ussop and Chopper coming out of the aquarium. The group were talking to each other so they hadn't taken in their surroundings yet.
Remembering what Luffy wanted to tell them before going into the kitchen Luffy cupped his mouth trying to make himself louder. "Usopp!!! Chopper!!! Brook is a Super Hero~! The power's in his afro!!!
Upon hearing their names Usopp and Chopper turned towards the deck to look to where their friend was but forgot what they were doing at the sight of the deck.
Franky and Brook stopped their conversation once realizing that Chopper and Usopp were gaping at something. Curious they followed the duo's gaze to- a deck with forks, knives and other kitchen utensils sprouting out of the ground like flowers and the walls like thorns.
Franky was the first to break out of the faze as he realized that someone hurt his baby.*Someone hurt Sunny*
Franky's eyelid twitched. "Who did this to Sunny?" Franky calmly asked Zoro and Zoro jerked his thumb toward the kneeling chief.
"Oh~? Yo Sanji did you do this to Sunny?" Franky said hostilely while cracking his knuckles as a murderous aura grew around him. Dropping what he was doing Sanji stood up ,looking equally hostile, and turned to glare at the shipwright.
"Hah~? You putting all the blame on me just because Marimo said so?" Sanji hissed as both closed the distance to about yard while the two glaring at each other in the eyes.
you?" Franky asked narrowing his eyes.
"Maybe I did
maybe I didn't
." Sanji sneered also narrowing his eyes. Sparks flew in between there gazes and both took a fighting stance before launching towards the other.
(I would like to say that the reason why Sanji is acting like that is because he was chasing Luffy for who knows how long and only for it to be in vain. Not to mention that Luffy was eating something he worked long and hard over , specifically asked by Nami personally, to make. While Franky is upset about the mess left on the ship and he'll have to go patch up all the holes on the surfaces. So they're just taking out their frustration out on each other)
While Sanji and Franky clashed Brook, Usopp, and Chopper finally broke their faze once they heard explosions from Franky's guns,bombs, missiles and other explosives he's setting off.
"OI USOPP!!! CHOPPER!!! BROOKS A SUPER HERO!!!" Luffy shouted once again trying to draw his sharpshooter and doctors attention. This time he stood up ,balancing on the roasting stick, and waved his hands over his hands while repeating the previous phrase over and over. Not noticing that the now empty tray fell from his lap and was sent hurtling towards the ground til it was near the ground.
"AH GUYS LOOK OUT!!!" Luffy desperately warned but his effort was in vain.
Usopp and Chopper couldn't even hear their Captain's voice let alone his warning over the explosions. They weren't even aware of his presence or of the pan coming rapidly towards them until the cooking sheet crashed right onto Usopp's right foot.
Usopp then started to scream and caused Chopper screaming for a doctor until Brook reminded the little reindeer that he was the ships doctor. Snapping out from his panic Chopper pulled a bag of ice and a white piece of cloth out of no where and went to help the swelling in Usopp's foot.
♥♥♥XoXo♥POV(point of view) Sanji♥XoXo♥♥♥
I turned my head to the side hearing a crash of a of metal. *What was that?*
By the foremast I see Usopp crying out bloody murder, Chopper crying doctor, Brook was watching both panic and looking back and forth looking to see who to help out first and an empty baking tray with crumbs on it laying on the floor.
I was about to go running up that mast and beat the devil fruit of Luffy if it wasn't for the ball of fire coming towards me. Dodging Sanji decided to deal with Franky first and made a mental note at the back of his head.
*The next time that rubber idiot comes within kicking range I'm imprinting my heel on his forehead.*
♥♥♥XoXo♥ end of Sanji's POV ♥XoXo♥♥♥
"Whew~.Thank's Chopper I owe you one." Usopp sighed with relief feeling the ice sooth his foot.
"Praising me doesn't make me happy you bastard~! Asshole~!" Chopper swooned denying it even though his swaying, blush, grin, and tone of voice clearly say otherwise.
"But if I may ask how did that pan come flying down onto Usopp-san foot?" Brook asked as all three simultaneously looked up to see there Luffy waving at them. "That explains that." Usopp said as they all sweat dropped.
"Hey, Luffy what happened to the deck?" Chopper shouted hoping to get some answers.
Some how able to hear the tiny reindeer he replied. "I ate the tarts Sanji cooked today. He got mad when he had to chase me it was fun though!!!"
At the bottom of the mast hardly any thing could be heard. "What'd he say?" Usopp asked Chopper who only shrugged in response.
Clearing his throat (If he had one SKULL JOKE~!)
Brook offered to translate and after a swift nod from Chopper and Usopp he opened his eyes looking at them with a serious expression. "Luffy-san said that there were eight dart ninjas today. They stole that tray and he got mad. He got it back and chased three away. It's done but not trough."
"No that can't be it." Usopp sweat dropped finding it hard to believe. Chopper on the other hand..." But Usopp how else could you explain this?!?" Chopper gasped gesturing to his surrounding. "W-well I guess you have a point. Wait didn't he say there were originally eight
darts ninja?" Usopp said starting to shake while Brook and Chopper looked curiously at the long-nosed man.
"D-d-doesn't t-that mean there are still five more ninja's on board trying to get this and if three did this what would five do?" Usopp stuttered while shakily holding up the baking pan.
As realization finally dawned on the two it was as if the panic was set on high.
Let's take a look at what the scene looks like from a distance.
Chopper started running in circles at full speed while screaming at the top of his lungs. Usopp with samurai armor on and tears in his eyes while shakily telling the dart ninja's to take the baking pan and leave in peace.
Brook saying "The thought of that gives me goose bumps all over my body. If I had skin to have goose bump's with~! SKULL JOKE!!! Yohohoho~!" before moving on to another skull joke.
Franky's covered in foot prints, Sanji's covered in soot and both are panting heavily from taking out there anger and frustration on each other.
Luffy doing a strange dance while trying to tell his now panicking friends that Brook is a super hero.
In the background Robin came back wearing a creamy sweater woolen sweater and black leggys that stop a little bit below her knees.(like in pic above only creamy purple)
"What'd I miss Swordsman-kun?" Robin asked giggling at the scene.
"Not much really" Zoro said giving her glance and trying hard not to stare at her knew outfit for too long.
"Alright." Robin said accepting the answer. "Shall we continue? Our training?" Robin smiled crossing her arms to clear a spot for Zoro to train.
"Humm? Our training?" Zoro asked rising an eyebrow at her while tilting his head slightly to the side.
"Yes, Swordsman-kun 'our' training. Your helping me build me strength." Robin replied cooly as she smirked at the expression Zoro was making finding it cute."Now like I said before shall we continue?"
Sitting down with her arms crossed Robin waited for Zoro to get in a push up position.
"Sure." Zoro shrugged before getting into position and the second got into position an arm-like tree sprouted from his back. They continued were they left off only Robin stopped shivering.
Ussop facing the opposite direction of the tower of arms got scared as the shadow was cast over him. "DART NINJA!!!" Sending the panic switch that has controls the level of panic over the three panicking chickens into over-load.
Making not only themselves louder but Luffy as well who was still in vain trying to tell his friends what he's saying. The thought of going down there to tell them still had not reached his mind. Sanji at the sight of Robin was going to go swoon over her up close only to be stopped by Franky's Strong Right. Making Sanji even angrier causing them to fight louder.
While all this noise and ruckus wet on no matter how loud they were one very distinct sound of a writing quill snapping in half could be heard coming from the library.
Robin ,the only one who seemed to have heard the sound, smiled at the sound of foot steps making their way towards the deck.
"Uh oh. She's coming~." Robin sighed as she let out a very short light laugh.
That's the end of chapter three everyone!!! I know right this is a perfect stopping spot!!!
Well I'm sorry that it took a long time but I have alot of things going on right now.
Please review after you've read this chapter cause it's not over yet!!!
I was only kidding that the chapter was over and it wasn't funny at all but I really want to see how long I can write til it tells me to stop or until I really do finish chapter 3.
And what I said was true read and review when your done please.
Plus I'm doing my homework on Sunny's blue print were every thing is. It's kinda fun for me to do this type of homework.
All the words above this sentence is 17,158 words/characters.
The sound of a door slamming open rang throughout the deck and not a second later the sound of heels hitting against the surface followed. Freezing everyone on the deck turned towards the source of the sound only to be blinded by the afternoon sun.
"What the heck is going out here?!?" A familiar femininely and very angry voice asked.
Looking again the crew can see a female figure right in the middle sun light. They couldn't see detail because the sun was casting sun right into they're eyes but they didn't need to see detail to know who it is.
"Huh. Nice flashy entrance Onee-chan (Sister)
." Franky said nodding with an impressed expression on his features.
Luffy ,the only one who can see her from where he is, waves his hands back and forth at the figure. "!!! HI NAMI!!!" He greeted with a smile and Nami gave him a quick smile and wave before turning back to the matter at hand.
"♥NAMI~SWAN~♥ KONNICHIWA~!!♥!!♥!! Sanji swoons going into pervy mode.
Nami swatted away the hearts floating from Sanji towards her.
"Well? What's going on? Why dose it look like tornado of kitchens supplies came through here?"She questioned raising her eyebrow surveying the deck and ignoring a now emo Sanji.
"Huh? I thought they were dart ninja's." Usopp asked turning to Chopper, who was tying to get out of the ring he made in the floor.
"Well a knife tornado dose make more sense..." Chopper said being lifted out by the violinist and all three nodded at the logic.
"But didn't Luffy say it was dart ninjas?" Usopp asked Brook ,once he put Chopper down, with a questioning face.
An awkward silence hung in the air for a good three minuets before Brook put his hand on his chin, thinking.
Another awkward silence quickly followed the first."I think that's what Luffy-san said. But I couldn't hear him cause it was too loud" Brook shrugged.
"DON'T TAKE THAT LONG TOO ANSWER AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HE SAID DON'T OFFER TO TRANSLATE!!!"
Chopper and Usopp harmonized, pissed, as they side slapped.
Hearing this conversation, Nami pinched the bridge on her nose trying to stop a headache from forming.
"And Sanji-kun, Franky why are you dirty? Wait, you were fighting
? Hold on don't answer just clean up. Oh and Sanji-kun are my tarts done yet?" Nami asked exhausted for always scolding them.
Sanji ,who had gotten up at command of his princess, dusted himself of the soot on his clothes, turned towards her and bowed waist length. "Gomenasi (I'm sorry)
Nami-san.I left the tarts on the stove but when I came back I saw that the Shitty-Captain had already eaten one. When I asked him what he was doing he ran off with your tarts. Naturally I tried to get them back but our glutton of a Captain had already eaten them all." Sanji said trying to sound innocent and free of any type blame.
"NOOooOOoo~!!!!!" Luffy hollered before placing a hand on his hat and jumping down from his spot to the deck. Landing in a crouch position Luffy dashed toward were Sanji was standing only to meet his heel half way. Flat on his back at Sanji's feet, Luffy sat up and looked accusingly at the smoker.
"Oi Sanji, what'd ya do that for?" Luffy yelled getting back up on his feet and brushing off dust on his pants.
"For making me chase you around the ship and eating the tarts." Sanji replied lighting a cigarette.
"Oh okay fair enough." Luffy stated bluntly leaving it at that.
"YOUR JUST GONNA LEAVE IT AT THAT?!?!?" Brook, Chopper, Franky and Usopp yelled simultaneously while side slapped.
"Yep. It's fair." Luffy stated as if it was no big deal. While the quartet thought *How is it fair?*.
"But still, Sanji I only ran cause you were gonna kill me and I ran all over the ship cause you were throwing knives and stuff at me!!! SO it's not all my fault, it's yours too." Luffy said frowning at Sanji for trying to put all the blame on him.
As soon as he finished he whole ship was quite and still, nothing moved. The wind seemed to have stopped blowing even Zoro stopped his training to stare at the happy-go-lucky. One thought running through everyone's mind , except Luffy's.*Did Luffy just something knowledgeable and NOT whine for once.Who is he and where's our Captain*
"Lu-Luffy could you say that agian? I think I heard you wrong." Usopp asked trying to rid himself of an imaginative thing in his ear.
"Huh? Hmmm...Nope I forget!" Luffy replied grinning as he laughed it off. *There he is*
The crew sweatdrops, Zoro continues training and the wind starts moving again.
"Hm? Why was it important?" Luffy asks innocently tilting his head like a puppy. "No not really." The crew replied.
At the sight of Luffy looking like a puppy Nami blushed. *That's so cute~♥ Wait did I just-? No I'm just imagining things no way would I have just thought my Idiot Captain was cute. Just my imagination.*
Nodding to herself before whipping away a light sheet of sweat on her check pausing at the feeling of her slightly warm cheeks. *Am I b-b-blushing!!! No, hold your horses Nami your jumping to conclusions. Your not suppose to be in the sun right now and your cheeks are just reacting from the suns rays. Yeah that's it.*
Nami stopped dwelling on the subject so not to confuse her self or from digging too deep on the thought.
Clearing her throat Nami brought it back the previous subject. "Any way Sanji-kun you created this mess." Nami said looking at him in the eye; showing him that she only wanted either a 'yes' or 'no' as an answer.
, Nami-san." Sanji said looking down in shame. Nodding satisfied, Nami turned toward Luffy.
"And Luffy did you eat all of my mikan tarts?" Nami said looking lightly mad and giving Luffy the same look she gave to Sanji.
"Yep!!!" Luffy grinned forgetting about the one in his shirt.
"Alright I've decided. Sanji since you made the ship look like Swiss-cheese your gonna help Franky fix the ship. Luffy since you ate my mikan tarts your gonna help me pick more and you can't eat any of them while your helping." Nami declared hitting the rail like judge would when he declares the victims's innocence or punishment.
Both Luffy' and Sanji's mouths dropped and their eyes were the size of saucers. "So I'm stuck cleaning the ship with the guys and Luffy spends the rest of his afternoon with an angel?!? No fair." Sanji cried as he tugged on his handkerchief with his teeth.
"But Sanji why did you throw knifes at Luffy? It's not like they would stop him." Chopper asked stumping the cook.
"Yeah just help me fix Sunny and all will be fine. Besides you usually spend most of your time tending to the girls or cooking. Ya need to have some guy time, bro." Franky said wiping the foot prints from his clothes and forgiving the cook quickly seeing he was gonna help him fix up Sunny.
"I guess so" Sanji replied sulkily and shrugging absentmindedly .
"Hey, guys could you help me and Sanji a hand with the ship?" Franky asked looking at Brook, Chopper, and Usopp. Looking at each other before shrugging. "Sure we got nothing else to do." Usopp answered for all three of them before they all left to get supplies.
(=3=) ...What happened while that went on...(=3=)
"WHAT!!! I can't have one? Not even a tiny one?" Luffy complained looking very depressed at the idea.
"Nope not even a tiny one. Besides Luffy didn't you just eat?" Nami asked putting her hands on her hips.
"But I'm still HUNGRY~!!!" Luffy said trying to reason with her but Nami was set firm on her decision and wasn't moving from it.
"No, now hurry up and get up here but go through the door for once. Oh and can you get the baskets on the table in the kitchen?!?" Nami shouted before heading toward her mikan grove.
"Okay!!!" Luffy shouting back still sad that he'll have to hold himself back or else she'll hit him. *Wait, why didn't she hit me? Hmm.... Maybe she's on her period.*
Not liking to think hard Luffy just left the thought at that.
(I was planning to stop here and post it BUT~ too lazy so I'll continue)
Realizing that he was inside the kitchen he grabbed the two medium sized and creamed colored baskets off the table and went up the latter to the library. Reaching the library Luffy looks around because he's hardly-* wait, I don't think I've ever been in here.*
Looking around Luffy takes the scene into memory cause he doesn't know when the next time he'll be in here. Walking around the library's shelf he notices that there are words above some of the shelves. Taking a closer look the are organizers like under Food are cook books, Health medical books, or when there's a blank it's like a combination. Picking up a book from the blank shelf under Health and Foods Luffy reads the cover it. "Easy meals to make for a sick person of any kind of illness." Absentmindedly making a mental note on were the book is at; Luffy puts the book back on the shelf.
Turning away from the wall of books luffy went toward Nami's survey desk. Like always Luffy's breath was taken away at the sight of a numerous amount of maps on her desk but what took Luffy's breath away was how detailed and accurate her maps looked. *It's been a while since Luffy had seen Nami's maps. There amazing as always. It looks like she's improved a little.*
Luffy thought picking one up seeing Nami's name written in the corner. Setting the map down ,and baskets still in hand, Luffy went to go towards the garden outside.
Opening the door Luffy shielded his eyes from the bright light. "Sorry I took so long I have the baskets."
"Luffy! There you are you were taking forever!" Nami whined.
Walking out side Luffy turned towards the direction where her voice came from. "I got a little distracted. It's nothing." Luffy said grinning while scratching the back of his head.
Geez and I thought you were turning into Zoro and got lost. I was about to get the crew to search for you." Nami mocked sarcastically and giggling a bit.
"Hey I have some type of direction....I think. But I know I have more sense of direction than Zoro!" Luffy said regaining a bit of sight back. *How long was I in that room to have my vision to come back this slowly?*
Nami looked at Luffy raising her eyebrow as Luffy finally got his eye sight back. When their eyes met they burst out laughing. When they were about to settle down they heard Zoro sneese twice followed by a crash. Not a moment later they heard Zoro start yelling.
"WHO KEEP'S TALKIN ABOUT ME!!!" They burst out laughing again.
Settling back down Nami wipes a tear out of her eye. "Talk about a late reaction." Nami giggled as Luffy nodded agreeing still bent forward from laughter.
"That was awesome." Luffy said picking up the baskets off the floor before turning to hand them to her. "Here, Nami th-" Luffy froze finally taking in her appearance. Nami was wearing a dress with no leggy's, fancy designs, or something that hugged her figure. Just a plain white two layer dress that was held up by a ribbons, covered her cleavage, the fabric flowing with the wind looking almost as light as air but still covering her, and the dress stops right above her knees. To say the least she looked beautiful as if she were an-
*Huh... Sanji's right she dose look like an angel.*
Luffy thought looking at her with an expression of awe and something else........something new ....-or had always been there and he just finally realized it's presence. *What's is this feeling......*
Luffy puzzled but leaving it for another time cause he was so entranced at the sight of his navigator.
