There isnt much in the Grand Line that does, Robin pointed out.
The seven crew members of the Going Merry had gathered in the mens sleeping quarters for a quick discussion about their next destination. According to Sanji, they were low on food supplies, and according to Zoro, they were almost out of rum. While they were, for once, good on gold, Chopper had also voiced a concern about their lack of a surplus of bandages, especially considering they were on the Grand

Sanji was standing outside and leaning against the railing, taking a smoke break. The day had been busy and long, and he was tired. He thought back to his time with Zeff, and what his life was like on the Baratie. It was interesting, but not nearly as rambunctious as life on Merry, and now on the Sunny. Sure, thered be fights breaking out, and hed get to kick some pirate or marine ass, but it wasnt the same. It was hectic, all of the hustle and bustle of a floating restaurant leaving little to no time for goofing off. Hed catered to a large crowd, and couldnt spare the time for individuals. There would be some days that he got almost no sleep, and others where he had nothing to occupy his time. It was different, and he was trying to decide if that was good or bad.

It was one of those hot, lazy summer days when you could do nothing but take a bath or lie in a hammock reading magazines. The only problem was, that there were no lakes nor oceans to bathe in, and all the magazines were either "not meant for children" or about cars. Really, the exciting prospect of spending a summer at Ace's uncle had turned out sour for the freckled boy and his baby brother Luffy.
Okay, maybe uncle wasn't the right word to describe the white haired man, since he had no blood-ties whatsoever to the boy. He only was a very good friend to his father, and often offered to take care of the boys when Garp had too much work to bury himself in. Pretty much like Luffy's uncle Shanks did. So these "brothers" had a big family, and at least the younger of them wasn't all that hesitant to include new cousins, brothers, aunts and grandparents.
And that hot summer day, the two boys were dangling their legs over the edge of the leather couch and sipped lemonade without any big inter

We never really needed words, not when we were like this. Sitting side by side in the crow's nest, companionable silence accompanied by the gentle slaps of waves against the Going Merry's hull.
On particularly frigid nights I'd climb up here after the others turned in, heavy blanket slung over my shoulder 'cause I knew you were too stubborn to bring one for yourself. You'd scowl at me, faux annoyance not quite reaching your eyes, just before I chucked the heavy wool at your stupid marimo head.
Your floundering inspired clean, pure laughter from me, the kind I rarely let others hear. I'd be on the verge of tears when you emerged, grabbing my pant leg and sending me tumbling haphazardly across your lap. Then the tables would turn as I went nose-to-nose with you and growled, your own deep chuckles pealing softly over me.
That's when you'd gather me in your strong arms as if I weighed nothing and settle me between your legs. Any anger I pretended to have melts away as I'd lean back

He held his pose, kneeling on the ground as he starred at the disturbed dirt. He didn’t understand why it had to be this way. He didn’t understand why such a kind man had to die such a horrible death. He himself couldn’t picture the fear the man had in his final moments, the pain, as well as the loneliness. Did the man cry? Scream? Who was the last one on his mind? He couldn’t imagine it at all. Dying all alone, that was a horrible way to go.
“Oh god Marco, I’m so sorry.” He whimpered. This was his usual routine. He’d always pray Marco was happy wherever Marco went. He prayed that the world Marco was in now wasn’t as cruel as the world he lived in. Maybe in another world Marco would have a family, maybe he’d be in the inner wall protecting the King; maybe he would have never joined the military in the first place.

Laughter and happiness rang through my ears as the small group of friends and family finished the song.

Disbelief, fear and anger warred over the masculine face and the young revolutionary gripped the newspaper far harder than he needed to.

We had stolen money here and there to save for our ship and quickly hidden it in the secret hiding place. We had also run around the town for quite a while and managed to "eat and run" on several known restaurants. It was a wonder even for me how we could even manage to eat so much food.
