Sucker Punch:: Guardian AngelEveryone has an angel.
A guardian who watches over us.
We can't know what form they'll take.
One day, old man.
Next day, little girl.
But don't let appearances fool you.
They can be as fierce as any dragon.
Yet they're not here to fight our battles.
but to whisper from our heart.
reminding that it's us...
lt's every one of us who holds
the power over the worlds we create..
We can deny our angels exist..
convince ourselves they can't be real.
But they show up anyway.
At strange places.
And at strange times.
They can speak through any character
we can imagine.
They'll shout through demons
if they have to...
challenging us to fight.

Zoro was tired of this. He hated that everything and everyone just kept moving. It annoyed him to no end how one second, he was walking along side Rhythm and the next she was gone. He is well aware of the fact that everyone had a horrible sense of direction and always blamed it on him for getting lost, when they in fact were the lost ones.
At the moment, Zoro was wandering around along the harbor, an unfamiliar one that is. The one the Sunny was at the port that sent the smaller boats out to those famous coral reefs, and was bustling with burly fishermen coming in from morning fishing. This one, however, was shadier. The docks were grubbier and the people looked, well, not very friendly. Covered cargo was being loaded and unloaded large ships and it wasn't as loud or bright. In fact, the mountain behind them sort of blocked the sun so it was cooler here. What made the swordsman stop was the Marine warship docked here. The residents here were o

"No before you do anything, even hug me, tell me how the fuck are you still alive!" I hissed. My emotions were jumbled up, and I hated it. I didn't know whether to be happy, confused, pissed off or sad.
"Well, I survived," Ace said.
"You had a molten fist ran through your chest. It melted most of your vital organs," I narrowed my eyes.
"At least support me on this! I survived okay, I don't know how but I did!" he shot back.
"Like I can believe that! You could be a fucked-up fraud for all I know?" My voice rose.
Ace and I never really got along, we were okay sometimes, able to comply with whatever and work together when needed. But other times we just couldn't stop bickering. The bastard always annoyed the shit out of me, and I annoyed the shit out of him. We used to bickered constantly, finding ways to piss of one another the most effective and used blackmail. Well at least I did.

Hands brushed the sides of my jean, sliding softly over the rough fabric. Nimble finger looped around my belt while another caressed the small of my back. Gentle digits stroked the under-side of my ass and between my thighs.
They were cold hands. Cold, dead hands of ghostly smoke.
They felt real, oh so real, but I knew they were just an illusion.
The cold ocean wind brushed through my hair and tugged my clothes as a half-moon shined down from above. It was the early morning, hours before the sun would rise.
I woke up two days ago officially. I talked with the crew and caught up completely with them, answered questions about my job and just hung out together. It was nice. After Impel Down, being babysat by Garp sounded like Heaven.

Katsu was a man I loved and respected. He was my best friend, consultant and partner. I respected him for his talent in the art of music, able to sing, play guitar, and dance with skill few possessed. He's so much fun and so damn creative.

The yearly festival was coming to Foosha Village. It's taken months to prepare for the one week of nothing but fun and adventure. Live music, fresh food, and partying till your legs break (literally, three years ago). People from nearby islands came to this festival. Even some royals up from Goa come down to celebrate.
"Jade, I think you're old enough to participate in the Talent Show." Makino said, wiping down the counter at the Party's Bar.
"I dunno. Maybe." I was twelve years old, the awkward stage where you're not a teen and you're not a kid anymore.
"You should sign up for the concerts. You can share your music with everyone. I know how good you are, and the customers love it when you play on the piano," she jerked her head towards the small piano in the corner.
"I'll think about it. Probably not." I said.

There is an island in the New World, protected by its own laws. No danger is present, no harm comes to those who are not stupid, and there's only creativity.
Verto; the island of music. Musician's come all over the world to this secret paradise, where no harm would come. They relax and do what they want. Few besides the musicians know of Verto, and those who do are sworn to secrecy.
It's a beautiful place, where artists of all sorts perform in the streets, practicing new pieces before tours. Dancers kick through the streets, styles ranging from sharp hip-hop to willowy lyrical. Musicals are always playing in the theatre, as rock bands play at the concert halls. Everyone's happy, peacefully.
And because these people ARE artists, nothing's ever normal. That makes the days more exiting, more inspirational. Laughing at silly stunts one guy pulls or fretting over personal issues. The life here is never calm, but somehow relaxing.

A Pirate's Heart EpilogueIt was pouring outside a small pub, where a few sodden customers had come in for a late pick-me-up. It was 10:34 pm, and the bar will close in a couple hours. But since it was a hard-working time of year on this island, there were only six people in this shabby pub. The bartender cleaned some glasses, talking lowly to an old lady in a shawl while a man with hazy eyes and a tankard of beer in his hand four stools to the left of her, about ready to fall over from all the alcohol he's already consumed. Another man, this one even older than the one at the bar sat in the corner swishing a vodka tonic in his bony hands, bald head gleaming in the dim light and his fragile frame shaking with effort to sit up straight. The fifth was a young girl, maybe eighteen with her smooth chin resting in her hand, a battered bag at her feet as she sat alone in a booth.More Like This

"How did I lose both Robin-chan and Nami-san?!" Sanji cried, pulling a handkerchief between his teeth. "Rhythm-dono! I'll protect you from the shitty bastard! Oh and Witch too."
"Um thanks." I said. We were back at the Going Merry, sun now replaced by the moon. The high tide lapped the small ship gently as Sanji cried, Zoro napped, and I tried tuning out Sanji's moans with Lady Gaga. Her music really isn't suiting the mood. And no one here was taking this all too seriously.
"Guys! Guys!" Nikko came stumbling onto the ship, out of breath and twigs caught in her hair.
"Nikko-chan!" Sanji said, stemming the flow of his tears and instantly snapping back into . . . non pervy Sanji mode.
"Usopp was taken too!" she said.

I started shuffling the cards expertly. Flipping and shuffling faster than the eye can see as I went out onto the Thousand Sunny's deck. I approached a snoozing Zoro, with a napping Felina on his head.

They jerked awak. Felina stretched and rolled off his head, light brown fur shimmering light flashes of gold in the afternoon sunlight. She hunched her back and yawned, wide dark eyes looking up sleepily at me.

Felina shifted to her human form, a small 16 year old girl wearing nothing but a pink and blue bikini with blue ribbons and a leathe

When I first kissed you I was afraid to love you,
and now that i love you i am afraid to loose you.

He was going on about how he had a dream about how he was a square giraffe sword fighting with a moss ball. The long nosed man told me it reminded him of Zoro, which made me laugh even harder. I had met up with my friend for lunch, mostly because I forgot my wallet and I was starving. We just talked about pointless things, stuff no one would consider interesting, but it entertained us. Kaku was still going on about his giraffe dream when I started to do something dangerous, thinking. He's known Lucci longer than I have, right? He's got to know something about him. When I first met Lucci, Kaku was right there, helping him get back up because I ran him over, but that's a story for later.More Like This
