"I believe she is still asleep," Robin replied as she watched the girl closely. "Let's get you back to the infirmary and have our doctor to a quick check to see how you're doing, okay?" She stood up and held her hand out to the little girl, "Our chef, Sanji, should be staying breakfast here soon. I'd there anything special you want to eat?"
Momo's eyes widened. "Wow, I didn't know devil fruits were actually real... On the old crew I never really got to see anything off the ship... I was almost always watched so I never got to leave even when we were docked. And in one day I got to meet two people with Devil fruit powers. Are there a lot of people with devil fruit powers?" She asked completely curious now. "Oh! Dear... I don't want her food to get cold. Ah, I'll be right back."
Sanji chuckled. "You know we can talk about this tomorrow, my rose. You need to rest. We'll answer any question you have tomorrow. Alright?"
Momoko was a little shocked when he called her his rose. "Momo or Momoko is fine to call me. I can't remember if I've even introduced myself.But I suppose you're right. I can't wait to hear about it. Goodnight and thank you everyone." She smiled then bowed slightly before walking out of the kitchen and to the infirmary where Chopper was looking after Nivie.
"The Cook gave me some soup for her to eat. W-When she gets up would you mind giving it to her. I'm really quite tired so if you need anything or need to tell me something I'll be in the aquarium lounge as... uhm... blue hair... He said that would be where we stay."
Chopper smiled. "The cook is Sanji and the blue haired Cyborg is Franky. The orange haired woman is Nami and she's our navigator. Franky is our shipwright, Zoro is the green haired swordsman and Robin is the raven haired woman. She's an archeologist. And the black haired rubber man is Luffy. I know it can be hard to remember names so just take your time." He smiled. "Get some rest. You deserve it. Good night, Momo."
The following day Nivie woke up and looked around. "Where am I?" She looked around and noticed the little reindeer sleeping. "I want mommy..." She hopped off the infirmary bed with the blanket wrapped around her shoulders. When she made it to the main deck she saw a woman with dark hair reading. She carefully climbed the steps up to where she was.
Robin heard light footsteps and looked up from her book to see a young girl with Momo's eyes. "Oh well hello." She smiled softly.
Nivie stood up with her blanket still around her. "Hi, do you know where my mommy is?" She asked as she swayed from side to side.
"Chopper is a reindeer," Nami pointed out, "And just like our Captain here, he ate a devil fruit."
"I'm a rubber man," Luffy beamed as he started stretching himself in random ways to show off.
"Don't mind him," Nami shook her head, "Go on and take that for to Nivie and get some rest. We'll talk more tomorrow."
Momo smiled and took the bowl and cup from Sanji. "Thank you. You're all very kind." She paused for a moment then looked around for a minute then thought of something. "Before I bring Nivie this... there's something I've been meaning to ask but I sort of forgot when I was scared that she wouldn't get better." She paused again then looked at Luffy. "What are you? When we were on the dingy your arm stretched out like it was made of rubber or something! And the doctor on your ship is a Raccoon dog who said he has different forms? I'm just curious is all... It's okay if I shouldn't know."
"I'll go set it up," Franky said as he left the kitchen.
Sanji set another bowl of soup in front of Momo, "You should take this to Nivie. The nutrients in it will help her get better." He also have her a cup of camomile tea, "This should help you sleep as well, it's camomile."
Momo pouted. She opened her mouth to argue but then Shit it and sighed softly before smiling. "Fine, but don't think that I'm giving up. I will find a way to repay you." She yawned softly then covered her mouth. "S-Sorry... I didn't get much sleep on the dingy."
"Nope." Luffy crossed his arms, clearly not changing his mind on the subject.
"What he means," Nami signed, "Is you already had to go through so much on the last ship you were on. It's really no trouble at all. Just relax and spend time with your daughter."
"Yeah what Nami said," Usopp laughed. "Our Captain is pretty hard headed and once he makes a decision there is no changing it."
"I'll turn the lounge into a makeshift room until we can pick up more lumber for me to add in an extra room," Franky smiled.
"I'm sure Nivie well enjoy seeing the fish. It's a relaxing area," Robin added.
Momo was shocked at the answer and covered her mouth as tears came to her eyes. "Th-Thank you so much." She tried to get her bearings then shook her head. "But I have to do something to repay you. I won't just sit here and not earn my place here. I can do the chores that no one likes. Anything! Please let me repay your kindness." She was pleading at this point looking directly into Luffy's eyes.
The crew listened to the girl then all turned their attention to Luffy, waiting for his answer. It looked like he was thinking, until he got that all too familiar grin on his face and looked at Momo. "Don't worry about it."
"We've already discussed it," Nami replied as as rested her head on her and smiled, "You're welcome to stay until you feel safe enough for us to drop you off."
"It's probably for the best so Chopper can make sure you're both in good health," Robim added.
"Don't worry about running into that other group of pirates. If they try anything we'll cut them down," Zoro grinned deviously.
Momo smiled as she held up her fist. "Then I'll have to convince him to let me do something to return the favor. Thank you Dr. Chopper." She smiled before heading back in the direction that she thought was the kitchen. When she found it she peered inside and smiled when she figured out she was in the right area. "S-Sorry, I never got all your names before. And Chopper didn't describe how Luffy looks but he said I'd have to ask him."
The crew looked at one another slightly puzzled. But then Usopp spoke up. "Ask Luffy what?"
Momo smiled. "How I can repay the kindness that all of you have shown us. If you hadn't brought us aboard I would have lost my daughter. And I soon after probably would have lost my own life. You saved us in more ways than one. And I want to repay you all for that kindness."
"Saying that won't make me feel better or anything," Chopper flushed and wiggled about. He stopped when she said she wanted to return the favor for helping and shook his head. "You'll have to ask Luffy, he's out Captain. But he'll probably say no because he is that type of person."
Momo smiled softly. "I can already tell, you've got to be the best doctor I've ever met. Also the kindest." She went quiet for a moment the looked at Chopper. "You're all so kind... You saved us... complete strangers and took us in when we needed help. No one has ever shown us that kindness before... What can I do? What can I do to return the favors that have been given to us?" She asked as she held onto Nivie's small hand. "Please, I owe you so much and more."
"It's best if she remains in here," Chopper replied, "It might be too overwhelming for her and her fever could get worse." He watched how she cared for the little girl and smiled, "She is safe here."
"So what are we going to do," Usopp asked, "Do you think that guy will come looking for them?"
"I doubt it," Zoro replied, "From what she told us, it doesn't sound like he'd care if they lived or died."
"We should be sure before we drop them off anywhere," Robin added. The crew continued to talk amongst themselves on what the best course of action would be before they fell silent and looked at Luffy. "Luffy?"
"If she wants to stay until she feels safe I won't stop her."
Momo shook her head. "It's okay. I don't care what happens to me... I just want her to be save and have a good life. Her life comes before mine no matter what." Moments later she heard the sound of feint crying she jumped out of her seat and rushed to the infirmary before anyone could stop her. She opened the door and saw Nivie with tears in her eyes but she was wiping them away. "What happened?"
Chopper looked up and smiled. "She woke up when I was in my human form and it frightened her. I didn't think that she would wake up so quickly."
Momo walked over to her daughter and kissed her forehead. "How are you feeling pumpkin?"
Nivie rubbed her tummy. "Hungry."
Momo looked at Chopper. "Can I bring her to the kitchen for some soup or should I bring it to her?"
Robin noticed the change in the atmosphere of the kitchen and quickly used her powers to restrain the men. "Everyone calm down and think with a clear head. There is nothing we can do at the moment and our main concern should be the wondering of both Momo and Nivie."
Nami placed a hand over Momo's, "I'm sorry. No one deserves that and I promise he won't get the chance to do that again."
