"I'm curious as well," Robin said with a chuckle as she watched the toddler moving around. Some of her spare arms were working on Ava's back and shoulders in an attempt to calm the expectant mother and ease the pains she was having. "Our dear chef must not realize his cookware had disappeared."
"Oh please don't tell him," Ava pleaded with her eyes closed, "He's already at his wits end."
"Is that why Robin is giving you a massage," Usopp asked.
"No," Ava sighed, "honestly, probably. I pushed him out of bed last night then cried about it."
"Sanji isn't in the kitchen," Luffy pointed out as he obediently followed Minny around. "Nami ended up making breakfast today."
"Yeah, come to think of it, he wasn't at breakfast either," Usopp added.
Robin drew her arms away when she felt Ava shift and turned her attention to the little girl roaming around deck. "I'm sure he's fine."
"He's with Raea and Franky," Ava muttered.
A month had passed and Minny was toddling around the ship faster now and was getting into everything that she shouldn't be getting into. One morning Nami and Luffy had offered to take Minny for a few hours so Zoro and Owen could get some rest.
"Luffy, keep your eye on her would you? I'm going to go grab one of her sweaters its getting chilly out here."
Luffy grinned. "Sure Nami."
After Nami left Minny started to climb up the stairs towards the kitchen. Luffy followed close behind following Nami's orders.
When Minny got to the kitchen Luffy opened the door for her curious why she was heading there.
She reached one of the cupboards and climbed inside pulling out a pot and a spoon. She put the pot on her head and started walking back to the door.
Luffy was still confused as to what she was doing so he kept following her.
Usopp came up from below deck and saw Minny walking around with a pot on her head. "Luffy what are you doing?" As soon as he looked away he felt a throbbing pain in his ankle. "GAH!"
Minny giggled as she hit his ankle with the spoon.
Ava leaned into him, "Death was too long of a punishment for what happened." She thought back to the day they ran into Adachi and when he admitted that he was the reason they lost Graham. The memory caused her blood to boil while also breaking her heart all over again. At the sound of the chain around her neck snapping, get eyes flew open and she realized what she'd done, which resulted in her crying.
Sanji sighed and gently wrapped his arms around his wife. "I know, I do too honey... If I could make that bastard suffer even more I would... Graham didn't deserve to have his life lost so soon..." He kissed her cheek softly.
"I know," Zoro replied.
Ava sighed when she was back on her feet, "I guess we'll have gave to wait and see what she like before we make her. That is, of course, if it's a girl." She absentmindedly touched the pendent around her neck at the mention of Graham's name. "I miss him."
Owen giggled softly. "I don't have any glitter on me now either."
Sanji chuckled softly before walking over to Ava and helping her up carefully. "Praline is nice. So is Eclair. I like both names. And as for the boys. Graham is not an option anymore."
"Sanji?!" Nami gaped when h he showed up but let out a sigh when how attention was in Ava. "Everything is fine. I'm just going to go," she moved passed him, "take case of your."
Ava waited until Nami was out of sight before speaking, "Zoro bled on our floor and I got in trouble for cleaning it up." She shifted her weight a little and realized she couldn't bring herself up off the floor. "On the other hand, I'm stuck."
"You haven't been covered in glitter in a while," Zoro replied before kissing her. It started out gentle but slowly became hungrier before he moved to her jaw, then her neck.
Ava made a few more attempts at getting up before sighing and falling onto her back. [I I give up.] She closed her eyes and placed her hands on her belly, then too several deep breaths. "Sanji, do you think it'll be a boy or a girl this time? I've narrowed it down to two names if it's a girl. Praline or Eclair. Personally I like Praline. But I haven't figured out any boy names yet."
Owen's face turned red at Zoro's actions. "Y-You haven't gotten this riled up in awhile honey..." She murmured softly.
Sanji heard Nami yell something and decided to check it out since he was worried about Ava. "Is everything okay?" He asked when he saw Ava sitting on the floor and worry instantly showed on his face.
"It's fine," Ava replied as she kept cleaning, "I should honestly make Zoro clean it up and it's his blood." After a moment she sighed and sat back on her heels, leaving the scrubber on the floor. "I know what chemicals to avoid."
"You still shouldn't be doing this," Nami said as she took over cleaning. "Why is Zoro's blood on your floor anyway?"
"I gave Owen a sweater."
"[I That] sweater?"
"Yeah. He came by to talk to her and she was trying it on."
"I won't let you wear it in public anyway." Zoro shifted her on his arms then proceeded to nip at the part of her neck that wasn't covers be the sweater. "It's only for me to see."
"You really don't have to," Ava said as she watched Nami clean.
"It's fine." Nami had finished scrubbing the spot, the blood now gone. "See? Now let's dispose of this stuff before someone else finds out." She stood up and grabbed the bucket soon after, "He is already stressing over you."
"He's right behind you," Ava said from her spot on the floor.
"W-WHAT?!" Nami quickly turned around, expecting to see Sanji, but he wasn't there. "AVA!!"
Owen gasped in surprise when Zoro lifted her with ease and took her out of the room. "Zoro..." Her cheeks were turning red but once they reached their room she noticed he didn't set her down. She listened to what he said and she gently ran her finger over his jaw. "Well to be fair... she was going to give me more, but you sort of interrupted that." She looked down at what she was wearing and her face turned even more red at the last thing he said. "I-Is there something wrong with this? I mean... It's really comfortable... I don't think I could wear it in public though."
Nami went to go find Ava so Chopper would stop freaking out. When she finally found her she smiled. "Ava, let me take care of this. You shouldn't be cleaning when you're pregnant. Chopper is freaking out."
"Because that sweater makes you look delicious," Zoro replied, sounding like a hungry wolf looking at a sheep. He wrapped his arms around Owen, picked her up, and left the room quickly.
"Have fun," Ava waved them off before looking back at the blood. [I Great.] Getting off the bed she returned to the kitchen to get some hot water. "Of course I get stuck cleaning up the blood," she muttered to herself once she was back in her room, "Idiot."
"What is she doing with cleaning supplies," Nami asked when she saw Ava leaving the kitchen.
Chopper's ears twitched at the mention of Ava with cleaning supplies. "Did you see what she had? She shouldn't even be cleaning in her condition!"
Zoro carried Owen back to their room but didn't bother setting her down once there. "Out of everything she has," he muttered, "she gave you this..."
Ava proceeded to begin scrubbing the blood from her carpet, the smell of the chemical cleaner irritating her nose.
Owen still looked worried but when Zoro finally spoke she was a bit taken back. "Honey, you were against me looking at her clothes before... what changed your mind?" She asked curiously as she licked her finger to wipe off the blood from underneath his nose.
"It looks better on you anyway." Ava frowned at the crimson droplets now on her carrier and the only thing stopping her from killing Zoro was Owen.
Zoro's eyes remained glazed over as Owen wiped blood from his nose. When he finally snapped out of it several minutes later he looked at Ava. "She'd keeping this."
"That was the plan."
Owen chuckled. "You can always wear it once you have the baby, goofy."
When she heard Zoro's voice her heart skipped a beat but then when she turned and saw his face her eyes filled with worry. "Honey?!" She rushed over to him and grabbed a tissue from Ava's dresser. "Sweetie, what happened?!" She was completely oblivious to the fact that his nose was bleeding because of her.
"I'm actually bummed that I'll never get to wear it myself but," Ava looked her over, "It looks good on you." She was going to ask about the other outfits she tried on but didn't get the chance as someone knocked on the door. "Who is it?"
"Me," Zoro answered, "Can I talk to Owen?"
"It's open." Ava repositioned herself on the bed so she was more comfortable and watched the door open.
"Honey I'm..." Zoro fell silent when he saw Owen and gave even realized his nose was now bleeding.
"Zoro," Ava called.
"Earth to Zoro!"
"HEY IDIOT!! DON'T BLEED ON MY CARPET!"
