"I'm not worked up," Ava defended, "But what if something bad happened?" She knew that he was worried and after what happened with Graham she could understand why, but it was starting to get ridiculous. "Can we just go check it out, please? If its as bad as you think it is then we can leave, okay?" Regardless of her being pregnant, she missed the thrill of adventure and being caught in the middle of a sticky situation. Of course she would never admit it to anyone.
"We aren't lost," Zoro shouted as he looked around, clearly ignoring the blonde woman that had popped up.
"You drunks are all the same," Nanashi muttered as he continued to step on the man's head while glaring at the others. Then he pointed at the twins, "Next man to lay a hand on them dies." When he noticed the look on Hime's face he walked over to her and put his hands on her shoulders. "Hime? Are you okay?"
Hattori had been busy trying to get Hime away from the man when she heard Nanashi's voice she turned her head and saw his foot meet the mans face before watching the man drop unconscious to the ground.
Hime was still in a daze not because someone slapped her bum but because of the words that came out of Nanashi's mouth. "N-Nanashi?"
Sanji stepped in front of Ava kissing her forehead softly. "Don't get too worked up love. It's not good for you or the baby."
Airis sipped her tea as she sat on the balcony and watched the water but then something caught her eye. "Hmm?" When she saw a muscular green haired man her mouth turned into a small smirk. "Well, hello handsome. I'd like to get a taste of that..." But then she saw the blonde woman behind him with a baby. "Hmm, a father... and a husband..." Her mouth twisted to an even wider smirk. "This will be fun."
She waited a moment before watching the man try to choose which way to go. Then she decided to step in. "Yoohoo!~ Would you two happen to be lost?"
After the crew had left, Nanashi stayed back and paced the deck having a mental argument with himself. What if he told Hime how he felt and it didn't go how he planned? What if she returned his feelings? So many questions flowed through his mind until he couldn't take it anymore. "I'll just...I'll tell her how I feel."
Jumping off the ship he headed towards the town to find Hime rather than wait for her to return. Once the twins were in sight he picked up his pace, ready to admit how he felt. However, once he saw an old drunk touch Hime, he froze, processing the situation.
"Don't," he began as he approached the group, "touch [i MY] girl," he snapped as his foot collided with the man's face.
"What was that?" Ava released Sanji's hand and looked in direction of a crash.
Hime sighed. "I suppose you're right... I just wish he would make the first move." When Hime looked ahead she noticed a bar and sighed. "Let's hope this goes without incident unlike our trip with Robin."
Hattori nodded. "Just walk by and don't even look at them."
As they got closer Hime tried to pay the drunkards no mind. She heard the cat calls and the whistles but still she ignored it.
"Hey Greenies, don;'t you know its rude to ignore men." One called out.
Hime made a tch sound but as soon as she thought she was clear. She felt a stinging pain on her bum. And she realized someone had slapped her ass.
"No," Ava sat as she sat down and leaned back, her gaze going towards the sky, "Just a little tired." She reached over and grabbed Sanji's hand and smiled. "But I'm not going to complain, its nice walking around like this."
Owen chuckled as she let Zoro lead the way. She knew which way the town was but she was going to see how much he got them lost. She was carrying a sleeping Minny as they walked.
Sanji nodded. "Of course, Love." He found a nearby bench and took off his jacket and set it down for her to sit on for a moment. "Are you hungry?"
Hime sighed softly as she walked with Hattori. "Part of me wants to confess... But... another part of me... is afraid it'll hurt more if he feels the same and leaves... Hori I dont know what to do..."
Hattori shrugged as she took a bite of the crepe in her hands. "Tell him. Grow a pair and tell him how you feel. If he hurts you. I'll kick his ass. Then Ava will kick his ass, then Raea will kick his ass."
After Zoro and Owen had cleaned up they headed out onto the island to explore. Of course, with Zoro's sense of direction it didn't take long before they were lost. "Lets go this way," he said as he headed left when he should have gone right which is where the town was.
Ava glanced at various shops that they passed by them. "Sanji, can we take a break?"
Owen giggled when Zoro pulled her closer. "You're still faster than me... Its not fair." She pouted before hopping up and wrapping her legs around his torso as well as her arms around his neck. "Mmm, I say let's take a break and go check out the island. I'll go crazy if I stay cooped up in here any longer."
Sanji packed a small snack bag with snacks that Ava had been been craving quite a bit during her pregnancy and smiled softly. "Would you like to go explore love?"
Hime was making her rounds letter everyone on the lower deck know that they docked.
Hattori looked at Hime and smiled. "Come with me, Franky asked me to grab some repair supplies."
"I wonder if I'll still have these cravings after the baby is born." Ava sipped at her tea as she watched Sanji work and frowned when she heard Nami say they were almost to an island. "The fun part of, you'll never know what I'm craving until I tell you."
Zoro nodded and adjusted Owen's arms, "Now strike."
A short while later, when he felt the Sunny dock, he blocked Owen's attack then grabbed her arm and pulled her to him. "It looks like we've stopped." Placing his free hand on the back of her neck, he smiled, "We can train some more or clean up and check out the island."
Hime shook her head. "No it's fine. Thank you."
Owen nodded and listened to Zoro's instruction again. "Still a strict ass teacher as always."
Sanji chuckled and got everything prepared for Ava. "I know love. Don't worry I've gotten used to your cravings by now."
Nami was looking over the ship when she saw the island coming into view. "Get ready everyone we'll need to restock at this island."
"Fried eggs with peanut butter and celery," Ava smiled as she placed the flowers in the vase, "Oh and honey!" She took the flowers back over to the table and set them in the middle before returning to her seat and tea. "I know its weird but thats what I want."
Zoro watched Owen for a moment before standing in front of her. "Your footing is still off. Left leg, turn your foot out a bit more and bring it forward."
"We do need to resupply," Nami replied but did catch the nervousness in Hime's tone. "You don't have to get off if you don't want to."
"You just let me know if you want anything. And I'll whip it up for you." Sanji smiled before washing the dishes in the sink.
Owen pursed her lips again and sighed. "You are such a party pooper." She adjusted her footing and focused again.
Hime headed back to the main deck and looked for Nami. "Nami, it looks like there's an island not far from here are we stopping there?" She asked nervously.
"You," Ava blinked, "you knew? What am I talking about, of course you knew. Nothing happens in this kitchen without you knowing." She chuckled a little as she finally grasped the vase and brought it down in front of her. "Don't worry, I'm more than capable of making my own meals if it comes down to it. Though, nothing compares to your cooking."
Zoro raised a brow as Owen's sneakiness and lightly chuckled, "Your footing is still off."
Owen smirked when Zoro was behind her and she turned around and wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed his lips softly. When she pulled away she grinned. "Okay I feel more motivated now."
Sanji chuckled. "Nothing to apologize for love." He walked over and kissed her forehead. "I was just making sure you are today. I'm assuming Minny got into the cupboards again and that's why they're in the sink." He chuckled.
"Nami did," Ava replied, "She did the dishes but..." She looked at the flowers again before taking them over to the counter and reaching for one of the vases. "I was going to wash those before you came back. Sorry."
"You should know where you're wrong," Zoro pointed out as he took a drink of water. A few minutes later he was standing behind Owen, adjusting her form and using his left leg to adjust her's. "Like this."
