"Probably not," Ava forced a smile, "I'll let you know once my stomach settles." She stood up and gave the half empty drink to Sanji. "Your can finish this I if you want," she wished before kissing his cheek.
Zoro let Minny get comfortable on his lap before he watched her try and take his food. Rather than telling her no, which he wanted to do, he carefully pushed it out of her reach. "You're always [I only teasing]," he replied as he looked at Owen, "But it's okay."
"Alright you two," Ava linked her arm with Owen's, "She's move for the next few hours."
After Zoro melted a bit Owen picked up Minny and brought her over to Zoro before kissing his lips softly. "I'm only teasing honey."
Minny reached out for Zoro and grinned. "Bapa!"
Sanji smiled at Ava. "You want me to bring you down a snack while you and Owen look through your clothes?"
Ava hummed a little then nodded, "I won't argue that." When she took another sip of her drink, her face soured, the beverage no longer sitting well with her.
Zoro turned and gaped at his wife and daughter when he was called a liar. "Am not!" When he watched Minny giggle he melted and sighed, "I'm not lying. And your going to help her regardless so I can't argue."
"Don't you have that one sweater," Hime asked as she looked at Ava.
Sanji walked over and wrapped his arms around her without saying a word and just kissed the top of her head. "You're eating later love... Its not healthy to skip meals."
Owen chuckled at Zoro's reaction and shrugged. "If you say so..." She turned to Minny and grinned. "Minny girl, is papa a liar?"
Minny giggled and screeched. "Lirrr!"
Zoro shifted his gaze away from Owen at her statement, "Never happened."
"Liar," Usopp teased before looking at Ava, "Are you really not going to eat?"
"I'm not hungry." Ava took another sip of her drink before looking at Sanji and noticing he was deep in thought. "Hey," she gave a small smile, "It'll be okay."
Owen laughed and gently placed her hand on Zoro's arm. "Honey, it's fine." She nodded to Ava. "Yes, I'll help you go through them." Minny started screeching the moment food wasn't getting put in her mouth and Owen chuckled before returning to her side.
"Besides, maybe I can throw you off guard again." Owen turned to Zoro with a wink.
"Yeah," Ava looked at the drink then to Sanji, "It's not way breaking free from a power like that." She sighed and listen to Owen for a moment then let out an annoyed huff while closing the book. "Usually to reverse that type of devil fruit, you need to knock out the user."
"That didn't happen until after he broke free though," Raea pointed out. "He was coming out of it before she showed up."
"He dreamed about Ava," Nami snickered, "I don't think the hypnosis ever had 100% control."
Ava took a sip of her drink and looked back at the book, "I can sort of understand why she did it. Sky was important to her, important enough to cause her to do whatever it too to get her what she wanted. Even if it meant taking something from someone else."
"But she hated you too," Raea pointed out, "Because you were happy."
"Yeah well," Ava held up her hand and let it dissipate into cherry blossoms, "It clearly came with a cost."
"Because you care about the cost," Cydi pointed out.
"I don't. To be honest, aside from not being able to swim, there are no downsides." Ava turned her attention back to Owen, "Will you help me go through my closet later? I can't fit a lot of my clothes now."
"No," Zoro protested.
"Because your clothes are... And she's... Just no."
Sanji walked over with a fruit drink for Ava and placed it in front of her. "You know what happened to me?" He asked curiously.
Owen was feeding Minny when she heard Ava speak. "Did I hear you correctly? Hypnosis? So Sanji was Hypnotized?" She looked at Zoro curiously. "I mean... it could make sense. When we saw him his pupils were nonexistent and his eyes almost looked glazed over even though he was talking to us as if it was normal."
"You and me both." Ava frowned as she thought back to when she was with them as a dancer. "I should have known they were up to something when they showed up here." She clutched the pillow then released it after a few moments. [I If I ever see them again they're dead.] With a heavy sigh she put the pillow back where it belonged then pulled Sanji to her.
"Let's sleep for now and worry about it in the morning?"
Two months later, Ava was beginning to have a better understanding of her new abilities. She could fight from a distance now, though Sanji and the others wouldn't let her. She had also taken to spending some of her free time researching known devil fruits, hoping to find something that fit what happened to Sanji. "So there really is a hypnosis fruit," she muttered from her spot at the table. Though it was lunch time, she wasn't hungry but she remained in the kitchen with everyone for the company.
"What was that," Usopp asked turning to Ava.
Ava looked up from her book, "I know what happened to Sanji now."
"Easy there momma," Raea teased, "You look irritated."
Sanji folded his arms and shook his head. "Nothing. I was so confused when it was daylight and I wasn't anywhere near where I had taken a walk what felt like only moments before..." He ran his fingers through his hair. "And that's why I want to know what happened... I don't know what I did or what happened to me... and I want to know..."
Ava moved so she was sitting almost dead center of the bed, legs crossed. "I know I said I didn't want to talk about it anymore but," she looked up at him, "You really don't remember anything?" She reached over and pulled Sanji's pillow only her lap, holding it closer to her, [I Was is Sky or Lily that did it?]
[Insert Stewie Griffin Sexy Party Here]
Sanji sighed softly. "I know... and that's the weird thing... I remember going for a walk... then everything went foggy and then I felt a sharp pain and then I saw you." He shook his head softly. "But you're right. Let's not talk about it."
Owen tried to stay pouting but his kisses made it really difficult to not smile. "N-No... that's just mean." When he kissed her collarbone she started to giggle.
"You didn't come after me this last time." Ava hung her head, "You didn't come after me and this time I lost you." With a sigh she took his hand and led him back to the bed before sitting down. "I don't want to talk about this anymore."
Zoro's mouth twitched as he tried not to laugh at Owen's reaction. After a few minutes he started laughing and sat up, pulling her into his lap. As she continued to pout he trailed kisses down her neck and into her shoulder. "I'm sorry," he chuckled.
When the door closed Sanji lifted an eyebrow when Ava spoke up. When she mentioned the flyer his cheeks flushed pink slightly as he scratched the back of his head. "Y-Yeah..." He sighed softly. "I have it there as a reminder. Because normally when we fight... I'm in the kitchen. So when I see that... I remember what happened like it was the day before. And it helps me calm down. Because I know it can get worse."
Owen smiled softly getting ready for the kiss when she heard what he said and watched him roll over. She blinked in surprise before shooting up straight. "W-What?! Y-You can't just do that! You're such a bully! Urgh!" She folded her arms across her chest and huffed as she turned away from him.
Ava walked silently with Sanji back to their room and let out a deep breath when the door closed behind them. "So, about that flyer," she smirked as she turned around in his arms. "Nami found it in the kitchen cabinet."
"I could," Zoro began as he leaned down to kiss her, "but I won't." He unpinned her and promptly rolled over back to his side of the bed. [I She's going to kill me.]
