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.]
Owen smirked before gently biting her tongue in a teasing manor. "If it is, would you accept it?"
Sanji nodded. "Yeah, it'll be more private there." He stood up from the bed and wrapped his arm around her waist as he led her out of the room.
"Is that why you still have a copy of the flyer," Ava asked.
"Would you two shut up," Nashi groaned as he threw a pillow at them
Ava sat up when the pillow landed at the foot of the bed. She raised a brow, contemplating throwing it back at him. "Sanji, why don't we go back to our room?" She slid out of bed and grabbed the pillow then threw it back at Nashi. "Next time, I'll smother you with it and make it look like an accident."
Zoro smirked and moved so Owen was pinned down on the bed, "Is that a challenge?"
Sanji smiled softly. "Of course, love. Even after you left after our first fight. My heart stayed loyal to you. I didn't even look at other women. To be honest I didn't even want to go to the show but I wanted to get them off my back so I agreed. But I'm glad I did."
Owen giggled as a chill went down her spine when he said he'd have to hold her down. When he asked if she would sleep she got closer to him and leaned a bit closer to his ear then whispered softly. "Can you make me tired so I can sleep, love?"
"The only reason you remembered me," Ava placed a hand over his heart, "It's because this is loyal. No matter what anyone does to your mind, your heart doesn't change." She opened her eyes again and drew her hand back, placing it been them. "You had dreams about new, about us, because they couldn't sitter change what was in your heart."
"Good." Zoro chuckled at her apology, "I tried to sleep but knowing you weren't kept me awake. Figured I'd have to hold you down if you tried to sneak away." He ran his fingers down her spine then back up and sighed. "Will you go to sleep now?"
Sanji frowned before leaning down to kiss her forehead. "Love I don't know what happened over the past few days. But you will always be the only woman I love. If we ever get separated I won't rest until I'm back by your side."
Owen turned around so she was now facing him and gently put her hand on his cheek. "I know... I just can't help but worry. But for her sake I won't show that I am." She leaned up and kissed his lips softly. "Sorry if I woke you."
Zoro listened to Owen's concerns and shook his head slightly. He knew she was right so he wasn't going to argue the point but he felt he needed to remind her of something. "After what happened last time, Ava has been careful. After trusting in hey doctor skills more.." He placed a small kiss on her Temple and sighed, "If we don't bring up what happened, she'll be fine."
Ava carefully crawled into bed next to Sanji and rested her head right next to his. She attached him, watching her, and felt his arm snake around her, holding her. For a moment she was tense but soon relaxed and closed her eyes. "I," she paused, "I had a dream that you were gone and even Luffy gave up looking for you."
Sanji hadnt been fully asleep when he heard the door open. He opened his eye when he saw Ava and smiled with a small nod. "Of course love."
Owen jumped slightly at the sound of Zoro's voice but sighed softly hearing his words. When he pulled her closer she placed her hand over his and sighed softly with a small chuckle. "Is it that obvious?" She turned her head slightly so she could get a glimpse at his face. "Just worried about the baby. Sanji seems fine once again. A little confused, probably unsure of what happened. But I'm worried about the stress this might be putting on Ava and the baby..."
Some time later, after the crew had escaped their encounter with the Marines and were once again out on the open seas, Usopp should. "So, what exactly happened? Zoro didn't tell us anything other than something was wrong with you."
"And why did your say you left the crew," Luffy asked, irritation in his voice.
"Luffy," Nami rolled her eyes.
Everyone was stated around the fire pit, a fire going, and music playing in the background. Most were seated on the lawn, but a few were in lawn chairs, Ava being one. This was Robin's idea in an attempt to keep the peace, especially with how Luffy took the news of Sanji [I leaving] the crew. She also wanted something that would keep Ava calm and relaxed.
Ava shifted, pulling her knees closer to her chest, eyes on Sanji. "It wasn't him. At least, not completely. They did something, altered his mind and messed with his memories."
"What kind of man forgets his wife," Nashi asked.
"The same kind that has to sleep in a different room from what I heard earlier," Usopp snickered.
"I think I've had enough for the night," Ava said as she stood up, "Night guys."
Cydi watched as Ava disappeared below deck the hit Usopp on the back of the head. "What were you thinking?! Why were you even listening to their conversation?"
"It's not like they were quiet about it," Usopp defended as he held his head.
Later that night, long after everyone had gone to bed, Ava woke up. She'd had another nightmare and went to turn to Sanji, only to remember he wasn't there. [I Oh,] she curled up and placed get head on his pillow, hoping it would help, but it didn't. She stated like that for a while before getting up and leaving the room. [I Please let him be here,] she thought as she opened the door to the boys dorm and saw him sleeping in his old bed.
Zoro could feel that Owen was awake and sighed, "You're worried, aren't you?" He wrapped an arm around her waist and pulled her closer to him until her back was flesh with his chest.
After standing in the doorway for a while she finally entered the room. Making sure to be as quiet as possible, she went over to the blond man and gently shook him awake. "Sanji," she whispered, "can I sleep in here with you?"
Sanji sighed but when Ava spoke. He walked over and wrapped his arms around her. "Yes, we need to talk later. I want to know what happened." He kissed her cheek. "You're the love of my life. I'll always remember you."
"Doubt 'Not now' me," Nami shouted, "Whatever you did before you got back b brought the Marines. Someone is on critical condition because of you!"
Ava reached up and handed Sanji's hand before looking up at him, "We can talk more later. She won't go away, especially if it has to do with the Marines." Her free hand went to the doorknob but stopped short and hovered over it. She couldn't bring herself to open the door, "You'll still remember me even if I open this she, right?"
"I see Luffy," Usopp yelled as the familiar straw hat came into view, "And he's brought trouble!"
Sanji gently ran his fingers through her hair and shook his head. "No I understand why you didn't." When he heard Nami's voice his eye twitched. "Not now Nami!"
Owen helped the others prepare the ship for a fast getaway.
Ava sighed, "It is what it is," she watched the slight movement and looked up at him. "At first it hurt, and I blamed myself more but after a while I started to shut down and went numb. Today was the first time in days I left the ship. Guess I just, shut down without you here." She tugged at her sweater a bit before leaning forward and letting her forehead hit his chest. "I should have told you sooner about the baby, I'm sorry."
Raea returned to the ship, out of breath, "Did Ava and Sanji make it back?"
"They're below deck," Cydi picked Minny up and turned to the other women. "Whats going on?"
"Long story short, the Marines are on their way because Sanji's put someone in critical condition for going after Ava." Raea looked back at the beach and frowned, "Is everyone else here?"
"Nami came back a bit ago with two to-go meals. Luffy and Nashi are still out though."
"Raea," Nami was returning from the bathhouse, towel drying her hair, "What's wrong?"
"Sanji apparently put someone in critical condition for attacking Ava and now the Marines are on their way here but Luffy and Nashi are still out," Cydi answered.
Nami sighed, "Usopp, keep an eye out for them. Raea, go l let Franky know to make sure we have enough cola for a quick getaway. Zoro and Owen, get ready. I'm going to go let Sanji know he is going to help clean up to mess." She watched as everyone did what they were told them made her way below deck and knocked on Ava and Sanji's b before door. "Sanji! We need to talk!"
Sanji felt the slap and was startled but chuckled softly. "I deserved that... I'm sorry love... but Nami and Luffy told me you were pregnant and I guess the fact that you didn't tell me clouded my judgement..." He sighed softly when he heard what she said next.
"Honey, I'm so sorry..." He went to step closer but wasn't sure if she would slap him again so he stopped.
[I I want to know what they did to you,] Ava thought before nodding and planning the ring back on her finger, "Always." When he apologized for accusing her of cheating, she slapped him. "I still can't believe you'd think I'd cheat on you!" She thought about telling at him some more but couldn't bring herself to do it. "I lost my ability to swim. Lily spent hours making sure I knew that you didn't remember me and the only way she would let me go is if I ate a devil fruit. She never told me what it does but I know I turn into Sakura blossoms."
