“So this is is the place you used to hide your stuff” Emilia asked looking at the huge tree in front of her.
While going back home after saving Luffy and taking the crocodile as dinner, Sabo had suggested that he wanted to go check something.
They were current hiding behind a bush using leaves and flowers for disguise.Looking at the men who were searching for their pirate savings.
“Did you find it?” One of the men asked.The other shook his head saying no.
“Its good that we moved those savings.” Sabo who was beside Emilia said softly.
“Want to go check the Grey Terminal?” Ace suggested.
“Grey Terminal?"Emilia asked confused.
"You’ve never been there, have you? For now just follow us.” Sabo said looking at Emilia.
When they reached the place,Emilia was kind of shocked at how ‘un kept’ the place was.There were garbage everywhere also the people who lived there didn’t look very friendly.
“Damn.” Sabo cursed. “Bluejam’s people are everywhere.They must be serious on killing us”
“They must be very frustrated at us.” Ace commented.
Emilia just sweat dropped looking at the boys who were sitting on top of each other, with Luffy,who was the youngest and shortest supporting the other two.
“Oh! Aren’t you the kids everyone is looking for?” A man suddenly asked.
This made the other men notice them and start chasing them.
“Should we fight them,Sabo?” Emilia asked as she ran.She was quite confident that they would win.
“No. We might anger Bluejam more.For now lets just run!!” Sabo said.
After a while of running,they had finally been able to out run them and were currently resting.
“Can’t believe they bought the guys at the terminal at their side.” Sabo said disappointed.
“It doesn’t matter. We’ll just fight them."Ace glare.
"No…For now lets not do anything.” Sabo objected.
“I agree with Sabo.” Luffy who was currently hanging on a branch commented.
“Huh? You shut up” Ace fought.
“I also agree with Sabo.” Emilia said looking at Ace. “ The reason why I asked if we could fight those guys before was because they didn’t have any weapon. And also it seemed that Bluejam wasn’t around.”
“Yeah…If he were around we would have been dead.” Sabo said agreeing with Emilia.
“No matter how strong you guys are right now,you are small.I don’t think that you guys will be able to beat those experienced pirates in strength or in number.” Emilia said. “ Especially Ace and Luffy. If you guys come across them, for now run.”
Ace looked at the girl who was staring right in his eyes, as if daring him to oppose her decision.
They were currently home and were eating the crocodile they had brought home that time.
While eating Sabo looked at Emilia and notice how she looked elegant.
“Emilia.” Sabo called out. “Were you a noble or something?”
“Huh?” Emilia looked confused of a second and then started giggling. “No,I’m not. Why are you asking that?”
“You always have that soft, formal tone you use while talking and also while you eat you always seem to maintain table manners.” Sabo replied. “And also your face is very….pleasant to look at.”
Not that all the nobles he met were pretty but they were always clean and dolled up.And this Emilia quite similar to them.
After that Ace and Luffy looked really confused. What were these two even talking about? More importantly what were table manners.
“It must be under the influence of my mother.She was always quite strict on those.” Emilia said smiling. “But Sabo,it seems that you’ve met some nobles.”
After that comment, Sabo got nervous. “Staying in Grey Terminal made me see the nobles when I entered the town…hahah….”
“Let’s forget about that.” Sabo said trying to change the topic. “Do you want to become a doctor or somthing,Emilia?”
“Uh..Not really.” Emilia said .“ I don’t really know what I want to be in the future,honestly.”
“Then join my crew,Emilia!” Luffy suddenly jumped in the conversation. “You can be vice captain and I’ll be the captain!Sabo can be my navigator and Ace can be errand boy.Hehehe.”
“Huh?! Why would we be errand boys?!” Ace shouted. “Instead you come under my crew.”
“No way!” Sabo along with Luffy objected.
This led to the three boys to start fighting while Emilia just watched them.
“Why don’t you all be captains?” Emilia suggested. “You can be captains of your own crew but you’ll have to be separated from each other.”
Emilia didn’t want that,of course.What she was doing was trying to make them realise that having each other by their sides was much better and fun. And that they shouldn’t fight.
“But…” Luffy said saddened by the fact they might have to be separated.
“Then let’s get along for now.When the time comes we’ll decide.” Sabo said as Ace also nodded his head,agreeing.
After some time Emilia stood up and started walking toward the door.They boys were currently having a bath and she decided that she would take her bath later and that she should train for now.
“Where are you going?” A voice behind her said.Emilia noticed who he was without looking.She had been training herself to always have her observational haki activated.
“I was thinking of going out to train.” Emilia said opening the door. “What about you,Ace? Weren’t you guys taking a bath?”
“Uh..I forgot to get my towel.” Ace said.
“Okay…Then I’ll get going.” Emilia said opening the door.And just as she was about to walk out Ace started talking again.
“I can help you with your training if you want.We could spar or something.” Ace suggested looking away.
Emilia was shocked.This was the first time Ace initiated a conversation with her and along with that he was trying to help her.
“But-” Emilia tried objecting.
“Come on.” Ace walked past her not even letting Emilia complete her sentence.
“Damn it!” Ace shouted who was currently on the ground groaning.
“Should we stop?” Emilia said approaching Ace.
“Why are you so strong?!” Ace asked.Looking at how small and skinny the girl was, along with her pure and innocent looking face; It didn’t look like she could even hurt a fly.
No matter how hard he tried the girl always seemed to read his movement and throw him away with monstrous strength.
“Wow! Emilia is so strong!” A small voice suddenly shouted.
“Shut up,Luffy!” Another voice was heard along with the rustling of leaves.
“What are guys doing here?” Ace asked standing up ,dusting his clothes.
“Uh…Just like that.” Sabo replied.
“When did you guys even get here?!” Ace questioned again.He was already embarrassed that a girl beat him several times and on top of that he now knows that Sabo and Luffy saw that.
“They were here during the second round of our spar,Ace.” Emilia said. “How about we go home now? It’s getting quite late.”
Sabo and Ace were walking behind where as Luffy and Emilia were walking in front of them.
“Sorry,Ace.” Sabo suddenly said.
“For what?” Ace replied staring at the duo in front of him.
“I couldn’t stop Luffy from disturbing your alone time with Emilia.”
“Huh?! ” Ace shouted,face red.
“Is there something wrong Ace?” Emilia asked with a questioning face.
“No there was a bug.” Sabo said. After that Luffy and Emilia again started walking, Luffy talking about how strong Emilia was.
“There is no need to feel shy Ace.” Sabo said with a teasing expression on his face. “She is quite a pretty girl, you know.”
“Shut up!” Ace said walking faster trying to run away from the conversation with a noticeable red face.
Sabo just laughed at Ace. And also started running trying to catch up to the trio. “Wait up!”
