"I'm sure. Don't worry, I'm in good hands here and I know they could use your help." Eli smiled before using her uninjured arm to push him towards Luffy. "Go on."
"Looks like Eyebrows is coming too," Zoro chuckled.
Once Sanji was close enough, Luffy grabbed into him as well and shot the three of them over to the enemy ship. "We're here to help." By help he meant they would handle the lackies while Amy dealt with Blake.
"We've got your back Amy," Zoro nodded, "And Eli is with Chopper so don't worry about her."
Sanji looked at Eli and frowned as he pushed her hair out of her face. "If you're sure, dove." He kissed her forehead softly.
Amy smiled when she realized they got Eli back to the other ship. "Alright. Now I can properly kill you."
Her clone made her way back to her and she reattached the two whips before smiling. "Well, shall we dance Blake. I know It's been awhile."
"Luffy," Zoro looked at the captain, "Bring Eli back and we'll head over to support Amy."
Luffy nodded, "Yeah. Chopper, be ready to help Eli."
"Right," Chopper prepared himself to catch Eli.
"I'm slightly terrified if seeing you with a whip," Eli chuckled before she felt arms around her. When she realized they were Luffy's she grinned. "See you on the other side, yeah?" Before she received a response, she was pulled back to the Sunny and landed against Chopper. "They aren't leaving her, are they?"
"No," Chopper gestured to Luffy and Zoro operating to launch over to the enemy ship.
"Wait," Eli looked at Sanji's, "You should go with them."
Amy saw one man going for Eli and growled "Back off!" She split the whip into two and made a clone before the clone bolted for the man near Eli and snapped the serated whip around his arm that held the knife and pulled back cutting the man's arm.
The man let out a scream of pain before dropping the weapon and holding his arm which was now covered in blood.
Amy narrowed her eyes. "She's not anyone's property. Leave her alone." Amy hissed.
"Amy?! Are you insane?!" Eli tried to move but was once again held back by marines, "He'll kill you."
"If you don't shut up," one man growled, "We'll kill [I you]."
"Oh right," Eli rolled her eyes, "I forgot. You guys have been chasing me down for two years just to kill me. Pretty sure the government would have your boss's head if you did."
"Keep talking," another hissed as he pressed a blade to get throat.
Mika looked at Clove, "Guess we know who the woman is now."
At that moment one of the docking systems opened. And the wave rider shot out of one of them.
"Guys! What was that?" Nami asked as she watched a blonde woman take off with the wave rider.
She used the whip to swing around the railing to swing herself up to the ship. Once she was on the opposite side of the ship she narrowed her eyes to the man who's back was turned from her. "Don't you dare touch her Blake."
Blake raised an eyebrow before turning around and smirking. "Hmm... I'm sorry sweetheart have we met? I feel like I'd remember a face like yours." He had his hand on his weapon as he looked over the woman before him.
Amy sighed softly as she shrugged. "Looks like five years is really nothing to a man. You can't even recognize your wife's voice... I have to say Blake, I'm a little hurt."
Blake's smirk faded as his eyes narrowed at the woman. "My wife died over two years ago. She was killed during an attack while we were at sea."
Amy sighed. "Oh [i sweetheart] you and I both know that isn't true. Because when you found out I was still alive you sent a bullet through my chest."
Blake narrowed his eyes. "Alright, I'll play your little game. If I sent a bullet through my wife's chest, she would have been shot and she would be dead."
Amy shook her head. "Surprise. I was shot but I'm very much alive."
Blake chuckled. "Hmm, funny I don't remember my wife looking anything like you."
Amy gasped sarcastically. "Goodness me. I totally forgot." She slowly started to revert back to the original Amy not once breaking eye contact with Blake. "Now do I look familiar."
Blake's eyes had widened as if he had seen a ghost. "How many times do I have to kill you before you die."
Amy snickered. "I'll haunt you for the rest of your goddamn life of you keep coming after people I care about. Actually better yet... You got to play widow for awhile. I think now it's my turn."
Blake paused then let out a laugh. "Oh yeah? And who's going to kill me, you? Amelia sweetheart we both know you can't do anything otherwise you would have fought back all those years ago."
Amy gritted her teeth. "I've dealt with shit far worse than your goddamn ass. I swear I won't let you hurt anyone I care about ever again. Today the Mocardi family will mourn. And it won't be for me."
[I Shit,] Eli frowned as she proceeded to attempt to dodge the barrage of bullets. She could hear Usopp going his part as several of the men were shot down by him. However, on her return trip back, she felt something tear through her wing and immediately started to change back unwillingly. When she crashed into the marine ship she bit back a scream.
"Eli!" Usopp proceed to shoot down any menu that went near Eli but stopped when he saw Blake pull a gun on her.
"He wouldn't," Nami hissed.
"Usopp," Zoro looked at the sniper, "what do you see?"
"There's a lot of blood coming from her right arm. She's in pain," Usopp watched as Eli tried to move her arm, "Guys, something is wrong with her arm."
Several marines came over and picked Eli up, forcing her into a standing position. [I Sea prism bullets,] she looked at get injured arm, [I I'm betting one is still in there. But between the pain off whatever is in there and my now broken arm I can't tell.] She stumbled a little and was forced back into place by to Marines. "Usopp! Keep shooting!"
"He's pointing a gun at you," Usopp yelled back.
"Do it anyway!"
"Usopp don't," Nami warned, "He'll kill her."
"He won't," Robin countered, "He needs her alive. He wouldn't have spent all this time trying to find her just to kill her." She glanced at Sanji, "Don't do anything yet."
Clove nodded. "You have a point... But regardless don't let your guard down. She could be just as skilled as the rest."
As Blake saw Eli take to the skies he chuckled. "Aim for her wings!" He ordered as multiple men aimed their barrels at the raven.
"Sanji," Eli didn't take her eyes off the ship, "He is the single greatest threat to my freedom. I'm not going to hide from him. But I won't fight him head on either." She let out a sigh, "That being said, I still can't shake my fear."
"It looks like they are advancing," Usopp pointed out as the marine ships drew even closer. "Eli, do you think you could get a birds eye view of how many we might be up against?"
"I'll try but," wings grew from her back and merged with her arms, "Watch my back."
"Got it!" Usopp watched the woman really flight then because watching the enemy to shoot down anyone that tried to attack. "Luffy, what's the plan?"
"What's your point," Mika asked, "Shee could be a cabin girl."
Clove pointed to the bottom window. "There's another woman below deck."
Blake frowned. "Well, then it looks like we'll be doing this the hard way." Blake made a gesture with his arm as the ship moved in. "We'll take her back by force then."
Sanji gently squeezed her hand. "Dove you can go below deck, you don't have to push yourself."
"She doesn't belong to anyone," Luffy replied. "Leave Eli alone!"
Eli felt her heart race at Blake's request and out of instinct, she gripped Sanji's hand. [I Just breathe,] she reminded herself but her fear if being chained up again was talking control. "I'm not going back."
Luffy glanced at Eli and smiled, "Don't worry, we won't let you go."
"That's what friends are for," Nami added a she got in a defensive position.
"What is it," Mika asked as he temporarily looked at Clove.
Blake sneered when he saw the familiar blonde. "Straw hat. I believe you have something that belongs to us." He spoke through his transponder snail calling out to the other ship. "Hand her over and we'll let you go this time."
Clove sighed softly listening to the tone in Blake's voice. "Yeah right... As soon as we get her back you'll give order to sink the ship..." She muttered before walking closer to the edge but then she noticed something in the window on the lower part of the ship. "Hmm... Another woman..."
Amy had went down to Usopp's factory and saw the weapon still on his work table. She took a deep breath before walking over and pushing the button causing the whip to come out. "I need to concur my fears..."
"I'm be careful." Eli felt the ship rock as a few more cannonballs hit the water, but she didn't budge. Her gaze was now locked on the trio at the front of the marine ship. "Blake," she hissed out but didn't move, [I This time you'll lose the other eye.]
"Eli," Robin noticed how tense the blonde was, "Relax."
"Hehe," Zoro snickered, "Nice work on the face Eli. Looks like you did a number on him."
"She probably did," Mika replied as his eyes locked in Eli. "Looks like their cook took good care of her too."
Amy did as she was told then headed below deck to stay out of the way and hide.
Sanji nodded snaking his arm around Eli's waist before kissing her lips softly. "Regardless... Be careful dove. I know you can be headstrong sometimes."
Clove smiled and shook her head. "You did the right thing Mika. I mean, he didn't catch her trail until now. It's been over two years. I'm sure she's probably gotten stronger since being on a crew like that."
"I know. Everyone knows but," Mika rubbed the back of his neck and let out a deep sigh, "The government wants what it wants." He knew how Clove viewed the situation, they both saw it the same way. But what could be done? "I hoped letting hey leave with them would keep her safe. Maybe I was wrong."
As the warning shot came towards the ship, Luffy defected it with his rubber body. "That won't work," he laughed.
Eli looked around her and saw that the crew was ready for a fight if that's what it came to. [I They can't talk their way it off it this time.] She looked up at Sanji's for a moment then out towards the enemy ships. "They won't get me," she whispered, "and even if they do, I know you won't let them keep me."
