    The Laughing Archipelago located somewhere in Paradise, though it's exact location is a bit of a mystery and existence surrounded in myths due to the fact that it doesn't have a magnetic pull like other islands, making it impossible to find with log poses. Having stumbled upon it not long after setting out on his travels, Larsi made his base on the lush, forest island.

    The entrance to the base of the Silver Hair Pirates is through a narrow strait named The Green Teeth. It is named so for the outposts on either side of the passing that watches and guards the entrance to the small town inside, The Silver Resort, where the crew can kick back and relax after a raid.

    Behind the base is The Retreat. Its a small river leading out to the ocean, below a steep hill that serves as a good defense against ambushes, but at the bottom a small ship stands ready to carry the pirates off should a frontal attack prove too much.

    Two other outposts can be found on the island, The Bird's Beak, named for the shape of the sharp peninsula shaped piece of land jutting out holds a outpost where a crewman can watch far in most directions. The Lonely Hovel is named for the small shack whoever is on guard has to stay in, as well as the fact that the walk back is through such an unwelcome terrain that it makes traveling back and forth between it and the Resort much harder. The crew usually draw lots for not having to take that shift, though if one wants peace and quiet, it's a good choice.

    Lastly, about as big as the rest of the island, looming above it like a giant, is The Green Hair. Someone in the crew, no one remembers anymore, came up with the name early on, a joke on Larsi's moniker and the fact that it looks like the hair for the rest of the island from up above, and it just stuck. The thick forest has over the years been made room for several hiding spots, caves, etc. mostly for treasure. Due to this, it would also work great as a defensive position, a pitfall of dangers for anyone unaware. At the far end, though not in a set position, there will usually be a man on guard too.

    The Silver Bullet was cutting through the waves, the sun shining brightly down from up above. Larsi sat at the head of the ship, a somber look on his face. Ahead, he saw a mass of land covered in green emerge from the distance. He raised his hand, his thumb extended in a sign to Koujiro who was behind the wheel. They had finally returned home. A few minutes later they approached the Laughing Archipelago, aiming for the small strait with a small structure on each side. He nodded at the men stationed at each, and he saw them running inside, probably to alert those left in the base of their return.

    Sailing in through the Green Teeth, they entered the bay of the island. The giant could not help smiling upon laying his eyes on the Silver Resort once more. The bay was lined with wooden docks and wooden houses, built somewhat recently. He even saw a few new buildings. Good, the men hadn't been slacking off while they were gone. A bit down another ship was anchored, seemed the new one was finished, they'd have to come up with a name for it. About a dozen men were gathered at the dock of the Silver Bullet's usual resting spot. Pushing himself up to his feet, Larsi picked up two objects that were resting next to him. In his left arm he cradled a rectangular wooden box, while his right hand held a sack, weighed down by whatever was inside.

    Before the ship even touched, the giant stepped ashore. The people waiting on the dock stepped aside, confused, yet welcoming them back.
    How''d the trip go cap'n? You brought back anything good? Larsi stopped momentarily, setting down the sack on the ground next to him. One of the men looked inside, yelling in delight. Holy shit, that's a good haul! What's in the b- The man was stopped by Musashi who put a hand on his shoulder. It's Straw's body. Go put the gold with the rest. Silence fell on the crowd, the only sound being the ship anchoring behind them and Larsi's feet walking across the wooden dock. His eyes were set on the highest hill above the town. It would make for a good resting place.

    Link was beginning wake up from the long events from Alabasta, noticing the room he was in as he was still receiving treatment was entirely empty. "What's going on? ... Where am i?". At this time unknown to Link was everyone on the ship had already gone and ventured to the island they recently embarked to which was in fact the very island of the crew itself's HQ.

    Link then raised his right hand slowly removing the treatment including the needle that was stuck in his arm, he then moved the blanket over him and brushed it aside as he slowly altered himself lowering his feet down noticing some slippers on the floor. He then put the slippers on raising himself noting the door wasn't that far away as he headed directly for.

    As he opened the door the light of sun hit him blinding him, "Damn it's too bright" as he heard some villagers talking about the meals to prepare for a meal whilst others wore saddened as they headed to the port of the city they had embarked.

    Link noticed a 30 year old, pale skinned with dark hair villager and asked "Hey where am i? ... Actually whats going on?" asked link bewilderely as the villager replied the island was in mourning due to a persons late passing. "I am sorry to hear that, but who is it that passed away might i ask?" asked Link as the villager approached Link and showed a bounty hiding the wanted part which Link at first didn't realise but it was back in Alabasta of a person those people was defending.

    "I might have not known who he was but it's a good idea to pay my respect, but i gotta ask for direction"

    *Noise*

    *Gawk gawk gawk gawk* Seagulls could be heard from above the ship. A flock of them were flying in one direction. Drago hung over the port rail of the silver bullet as it cut through the dark, navy blue waves heading to its destination. Drago smiled as he thought to himself We must be getting close to the Laughing Archipelago if seagulls are making noise over here. They don't stray very far from beaches. Turning his head to the right, Drago stood up straight and unlatched himself of the railing to get a clear view. There lay right before his eyes the emerald green island of the Laughing Archipelago. On the left lay a tightly grouped mountainous green forest, while on the right, laid more botched sections with a curve that looked like a bird's beak.

    Been a damn while since we last came back here. Entering the bay, one could see houses and docks made of wood, the most abundant resource on the island. Another ship that was recently finished laid down closer down to land right in front of where the Silver Bullet usually docks.

    A cluster of a dozen or so men were standing on the dock. What are they doing here so soon? Don't recall anybody calling in saying we were about to arrive. Drago shrugged. Meh, doesn't concern me. After I go fishing, I'm have to work on the cyborg parts in my lodge.

    Larsi was already on the dock, walking past everyone through the dead silence. "Goddamn, Musashi laid to them so fast without a warning. Got em all quiet." *Thump!* Drago steppe off the shop, and landed on the dock with a good hump.

    "Hup, coming through. Sorry. 'Scuse me." Drago bumped his way through the crowd to get the sandy beach. About 6 feet in front of him was a familiar 6 foot tall, tan skinned, short brown haired man with a dark red jacket revealing his abs. Not to mention a pair of black trousers and black boots. A delightful grin reached Drago's face.

    "Well, well, well. If it's my boy Drago. Welcome back."

    "Haha, good to be back Alias." The two share a tight and brotherly hug. "Good to be back man, good to be back..." Alias repeated almost with a tear.

    Speech

    Atop the crows nest of the Silver Bullet and away from the rest of the crew Minuano sat there alone in silence, feeling the breeze of the ocean flow through his hair. He did not pay much attention to the surrounding sea knowing that it had been a few days since their departure from Alabasta and thus they must be closing in on the Laughing Archipelago- their home.

    With his eyes closed he started to think back on their recent adventure in Alabasta...the fight with Crocodile, the bomb and the revolution itself. It all felt so unreal thinking back on these events. Tears started swelling up as he remembered Straw...dammit if only I was strong enough me and Larsi could have ended Crocodile sooner and perhaps we could have been able to save Straw. Still not forgiving himself for what had happened to his mate

    *Gawk gawk gawk gawk*

    Wiping his tears away, Minuano opened his eyes and rose up- the sound of seagulls could only mean that they are now close to the Archipelago. It was time to notify the rest of the crew of this and have them prepare for docking although he was sure that Larsi must've already seen the island as well. He grabbed a nearby loose rope and jumped down on deck.

    A few minutes passed and as they closed in on the dock cheerings could be heared as the men on land was greeting them back
    . Cracking a small smile in his face, Minuano waved back to the crowd as he used his powers to disintegrate and reappear next to where Larsi stood, looking towards where he looked so the hills, Huh? It's a beautiful spot you've picked, Cap'.

    Larsi climbed the mountain in silence, still cradling the casket in his arms. It felt so light and small. Lost in thought he soon realized he had reached the top of the mountain. Finding a spot overlooking the sea and town below, he knelt down, putting the coffin on the grass, flattening the long straws in the process. He knew he could use his abilities to make the next part easier, but he didnt want to cheapen it anymore.

    Placing his fingers pointed at the ground beneath the greenery, pushing down. He felt the soil rub against his skin as his hand dove into the earth. Rocks scraped against his skin and he snapped roots, but paid neither any heed. Bringing it back up he scooped the debris aside, placing it in a pile on the ground. Moving back in, he slowly dug out another handful. Placing it on top of the pile, he went in again. He made sure not to rush himself, although his size resulted in it being done a few minutes later. Sitting up, but still on his knees he looked around. To his left was the pile of dirt, to his right was the casket, and in front was the grave. Behind was a grand view worthy of a man like Straw. Minuano had joined him quickly, and now more were starting to turn up. A group of peopld were climbing the hill, led by Musashi who was carrying a huge pillar of a rock, as he had promised during the voyage. He had said the least he could do for the man that sacrificed himself for him was find and create a monument to remember him by. The rock was about four meters long, maybe half a meter wide, and half of that thick. He had worked quickly indeed. Stopping just short of the coffin, he put it end of the rock down, leaning it against himself. He drew a deep breath, clearly strained as the rest of the group walked past. Larsi spoke quietly, though his voice cracked at first. He was unsure if it was because he hadnt spoken in long or because of his emotions.
    Th- Thank you.

    Musashi only nodded, looking down on the box before him. As the small crowd settled around the hole, the giant cleared his throat. With one last glance around he directed his gaze and the wooden box to his right. He- Strawhatter, was a good fighter and a better man. Although I didn't know him for long, the time we shared is something I wouldn't give up for anything. I- I'm sorry I couldn't make it in time, and I hope you can rest in peace.The giant bowed his massive head, giving respect to his fallen soldier, as Musashi cleared his throat. Giving a small nod to the other man, the giant gave him the floor. Standing in spot, the swordsman opened his mouth, speaking down to the casket. I've no one but you to thank for being able to stand here today. Thank you for saving me, I hope in a moment like this I could have done the same thing.

    Afterwards anyone who wanted to say any words were allowed to do so. Some people only paid their condolences, while others held small speeches, yet Larsi was thankful of them all the same. After a while silence settled on the crowd, no one left who wanted to speak. Without a word the giant lifted the casket, lowering it gently into the hole. Placing it at the bottom, he began refilling the hole in the ground with the soil to his left. As he was nearly done, Musashi came around in front, placing the giant rock at the top of the grave, sticking out around two and a half meters. Filling the rest of the hole, Larsi sat back up, as Musashi dusted off his hands. Thank you all for coming, I'm sure he would have appreciated it. If anyone wants to stay, they're free to do so of course. He spoke to everyone around him, before directing his attention to Minuano. I need to talk to you in my office. Rising to his feet, the captain turned around and walked down the hill before anyone else, heading towards the largest building in the town.

    Once Minuano arrives in Larsi's office:
    Some time later Larsi was seated behind his desk, reading the newspaper and writing on a piece of paper. Seeing the oldest of his friend and most trusted man enter, he could not help but smile. Had to have been the first time since Alabasta. He continued to write as he spoke. I've got a job for you. We need allies, now that we've probably angered the World Government even more. You remember the people I met back at Twin Capes? Well, I want you to travel and offer up our support to one of their new locations. He motioned towards the newspaper. The Revolutionary Army has taken control of Cactus Island. I want you to travel there and offer our aid and protection, of course in exchange for compensation. Here. He finished writing the letter, handing it out towards Minuano, the paper almost as big as Minuano himself. I want you to take the new ship, I've named it The Floating Straw, take two men and travel there and deploy them as our envoys.

    Greetings Revolutionary Army

    I am unsure whose hands will find, but I trust my First Mate to assure it will find the right ones. I am writing this as a continuation of an offer presented before, at Twin Peaks, to some of your officers. I trust by the time you receive this letter you may hear of our recent endeavors in Alabasta. A gift for you, a Kingdom freed from its tyrannic and corrupt leaders and put under my protection. The dog of the Government put down. The papers may tell a different story, but that is either the Government trying to cover up, or the rebels trying to escape the Government's wrath. Their freedom and successful rebellion is my gift to you. Now, I bring you another.

    I hope you will welcome these two men of mine into your hall. They will serve as my envoys and your line to contact me. They will let us know if Cactus Island is attacked by foes, and I shall send whatever available to assist you. However, as you may understand, we do not work for free. Although, we have a common foe, our goal is not the same. Our protection will not be insurmountable, but just as the force if carries, the cost is notable. I hope we can come to an understanding.

    Regards
    Larsi
    Captain of the Silver Hair Pirates

    As Larsi finished his speech everyone gathered closer around the casket and paid their condolences, when it was Minuanos turn he cleared his throat and calmly began speaking
    Straw...you were a great man, you may not have been around for long but even then you were part of this family and I want to thank you deeply for the time we had together. Not many people have it in them to make such a sacrifice like you did. May you rest in Peace. He finished his speech and wiped away a single tear that had begun to fall down his cheek.

    Silently nodding towards Larsi to let him know he'd met up with him in a bit. Minuano turned his attention towards Drago who stood just a few meters away together with Alias and walked towards the two of them. He needed to speak with Drago about an urgent matter. As he closed in on them he spoke not so loudly, hey Drago...got a min? I need to have a talk with you. Alias who also stood there with them moved away to let the two of them speak in private.

    So Drago...I haven't told Larsi about this yet but wanted to let you know that I no longer can wield a sword. He raised his right arm and showed it to Drago as he continued- during the fight in Alabasta I was wounded as you know but not everything healed back as expected...it seems like my nerves were damaged and I can't make a firm grip without my hand shaking so he made a brief paus before continuing I'd like you to have my family heirloom Murasama. I'm pretty sure you will take good care of it and it can stay happy with you.

    As their conversation ended, Minuano headed down from the hills and went straight towards Larsi's office to see what he wanted to discuss.

    moments later he pushed open the giant door to Larsi's office and saw his giant figure towering at the other end of the room, reading the news. A smile could be briefly be seen when the two of them made eye contact and as Larsi continued writing he spoke to him wtithout any delay about a mission he had for him. As he finished he handed Minuano a giant letter that was almost the size of him and continued


    Leave it to me...also great choice of name for the new ship! I'll be sure to return with great news.

    Minuano strapped the letter to his back and left the room, heading straight towards the docks where the Floating Straw was waiting for him to take it on its maiden voyage. While walking he saw two of their men just slacking around doing nothing so he decided that the two of them would be perfect to bring with him. Oi you two, Knoll! Tott! follow me, we have an important mission to carry out. Yes sir, on our way!

    As the three of them boarded the ship, Minuano headed towards the log room and picked out the eternal log pose towards Cactus Island and went out again and ordered Knoll and Tott to prepare the ship for their voayge and so the three of them together set sail for their destination.

    To the Resort
    Aboard the Silver Bullet, Gambit sat on the starboard side of the ship with his feet hanging across the water hitting his 20th cigar along the journey. He looked up and deeply breathed, and was drawn by the silhouette of clouds beneath the noon sky, magnified by the resonating harmony of the hovering tagak (seagull in Gambit's country) and the emanating fragrance of an abundant sea; he couldn't help but reminisce on his days back in his kingdom, for it truly resembles his birthplace.

    Minutes later, he smelled fresh woods and leaves mixed with the soil kissing the waters, and he knew they are approaching the shore of some tropical islands. He rose on his seat and gently touched the deck of the ship and witnessed an archipelago within reach. There were a handful of locals, houses and even a resort in his sight. This place's a paradise, he thought, gently smiling at the people welcoming them, winking at the teenage girl standing in the dock. All of the crew disembarked after Larsi and so he was.

    The Burial
    After some time, Larsi climbed up the hill and commenced the ceremony with the rest gathering in circle. The atmosphere weighed heavier as he saw them all pressing their hearts after the death of a friend. Tears fell down their cheeks, regrets on their chest, memories they held, and friendship they cherished, they bid forlorn farewell to the man they call family. Gambit never knew this man but he paid his respects to him and to the men who rescued Alabasta. I know what it feels like losing a comrade. It doesn't only break your heart but part of your life will never go back. Strawhatter, that's what they call you; if you ever find my family in another life, tell them that I missed them. Adios, he whispered placing his palm against his chest.

    Meeting
    After the burial, Larsi summoned Minuano to his office in which Gambit saw as a perfect opportunity to discuss things with that man. He followed the two pirates after several minutes waiting outside. It took him two more cigars before Minuano checked out and without stalling, he set his feet into the giant room, approaching and talking to him directly to the point. "Hey Larsi. I am sorry for the loss of your comrade and I truly understand how it feels as I lost mine in the past and the same reason I came here. This may not be the most convenient circumstances but I am taking chances. First of all, I shall thank you for giving me a ride to this place you call home but I have to bid goodbye as I have a very important mission to commence. I am looking for a legendary pirate named Redfield who rose in fame in the era of Roger. I am not certain if you ever heard of it but two years ago he had killed a lot of villagers in East Blue in search of something, killing few of my friends in a certain island. Thereon, rumours have said that this man holds a demonic power and plans to rise up and conquer the seas once more. I heard from a source in the New World that he has finally obtained it - the mythical zoan, vampire fruit! I have to stop him and steal his devil fruit. But in order to get that, I need to take his life. It may sound awkward during times like this but I need a boat to reach his location. And if I ever made it out alive, I will go back and return the favor and maybe just maybe, fill in a missing force in your crew.. Strawhatter might be irreplaceable but my skills can't be discredited. So, do we have a business here?"

    "Oh sure Minuano. Sorry, gonna have to break away for a moment." Waving his hands to signal that this was no big deal, Alias backed up from the duo to let them talk.

    Drago nodded as he remembered how badly chopped up Minuano's arm had been from the trip on Alabasta.
    Drago eyed Minuano's arm and cringed, imagining how such a thing would feel like for him. Goddamn, It looked bad when I first saw but I didn't it was THIS bad. Dude must be fucked...
    Whaat?! Drago almost jumped in the air as his ears were absolutely zapped when he heard this from Minuano. His hands covering his gaping mouth from the unexpected surprise like an unexpected bird shit falling on you. Just on the pleasant. "Holy shit! This is just...just...just wow!" Drago embraced Minuano with a powerful hug.

    A few minutes later, Minuano was on his way. "Wow...I couldn't be more grateful," Drago stood there as if time had stopped itself just to dwell in the good air that was brought in from his conversation with the first mate.

    "Oi Drago, you done thinking?" Startled by the sudden voice, Drago jumped a little. "Oh sorry, I'm just in limitless gratitude right now," A pause as Drago kept thinking. "Oh right! I have shit to do. Gotta make some bombs for Larsi. Come help me Alias. I was thinking about turning myself into a cyborg as well. I'm pretty sure I have enough material for it in my shop."

    @Larsi you can control me to get your explosives for your next post if you want.

    Larsi watched with a smile on his face as Minuano carried off the huge piece of paper. His gaze falling back to the paper in his hand, he flipped another page. Due to his size, he had to special order his newspapers, so that he could actually use them. It caused a bit of a delay for news, but it was worth it nonetheless. Absently he heard another person enter. Looking up, he saw it was one of their new recruits. Gambit was his name. Putting down his newspaper, the captain listened in silence to the words of his new crewmate. After he finished speaking, the giant remained silent for a bit longer. His eyes regarded the man standing before him. After a while he broke the silence, speaking solemnly.

    I just buried one of my men, now you want me to send you off to fight one of the legends from the era of the Pirate King by yourself? I can't do that. Larsi shook his head. However, I can understand the value both of your desire to avenge your friends and in taking his power for yourself. He leaned back in his chair. I'll help you.

    Standing up, the giant almost reached the ceiling inside his office. Walking out from behind his desk, he quickly passed Gambit, reaching the door in a few steps. Follow me. He stepped out into the sunlight. The smell of the ocean and the sounds of birds merged with the smell of food and the sound of working people. He was greeted by people outside, and nodded in return. Turning left, he walked down the docks. After a short time they reached a building, the sound of working being the most intense inside. Larsi was grateful most of the important buildings were built to accommodate his size. Pushing up the door, he only had to bend a little to be able to step inside. Drago's workshop smelled of oil, metal and various other unnatural smells, but it wasn't uncomfortable. In the far end of the room he saw Drago working on some sort of armor contraption. On a table to his left was a bag marked "To Larsi". Picking it up carefully, he looked inside. The bombs that he requested were there just as ordered.

    Thank you for these! He yelled loud enough that their scientist could hear him. I have a gift and a mission for you. First, our newest ship, I'm giving it to you. I want you to take Link, Eve and Musashi and a few other men to go to Kenzan Island, the home of the long arm tribe. Make them part of our territory, however way you see fit.

    He turned to walk out, almost out the door when he remembered one last thing. Oh by the way, the name of the ship is up to you. With that, he turned to Gambit who he hoped had followed him. I just need to find one more person. Koujiro! Where are you?

    A few minutes later, having found the gunslinger, Larsi stepped aboard the Silver Bullet again. It was clear for other people, except for him and Koujiro. The gunslinger stepped up to the wheel while the giant waited for Gambit to arrive. Two more crewmen also stepped on board. Lastly, when all five were on board, the ship would leave the port once more, first heading to Saboady Archipelago.

    Larsi carefully listened to the words Gambit tried to convey. Surprised, the captain honored his request but with one condition, he is assisting him. Grateful, the card thrower almost sprout his tears out but he had to retain his composure of a tough guy, so he clenched his jaw and pushed his tounge against his palate to avoid tears. As things were settled, he followed the captain as he sent his huge body outside giving series of missions and orders to his crew. After collating the items from Drago's lab, he summoned a man holstering a gun who was behind the wheel when they traversed the seas from Alabasta. Later, two other men joined him.. Larsi boarded the ship in which he seconded immediately. As his feet set on deck, he looked behind to bid a gesture to the kind people in the island. He looked up in the sky and breathed heavily as he knew that this is not going to be an easy journey. The place in which Redfield resides will take weeks and that would be plenty of time to prepare for the battle... Gambit pushed his feet against the deck and leap in the ship's mast, facing Larsi. "The heavens are clear, this is gonna be a long journey. Thanks for granting my request.. I guess I should call you Cap now.. I won't let those bastards run wild.. His era has long been doomed. Now's the time for a revolutionary methods to turn the world upside down.."

    He sat on the frame of the mast, lighting a cigarette, he remembered something worth sharing. "My trusted friend will be waiting for us in Sabaody and it is expected that he will arrange the deal to coat our ship once we get there. After that, I can send him home but knowing his assassination abilities, it will be a waste not to let him fight with us. His name is T-Bag. Teodoro Bagwell.."

    Hmm, hmm. Almost done with these cyborg utilities. Just gotta screw this piece in here... Drago leaned into the table, pushing in his screw driver into one of the cyborg arms that he was making. Around this corner of his workshop, laid multiple finished pieces. An arm was a few feet to the left on the table. 2 legs were side by side behind the arm. Chest plating next to all 3. That's just the few of the many cyborg pieces Drago had finished "Done!"

    Drago wiped the sweat off his face using his dark, dirty hand. Although, what he did was weary work, these 2 hours of work certainly did not compare to what he did only a few weeks ago. Back to back days of nonstop work on his cyborg parts. "Finally done with everything. Took me almost 4 months." A weary, but bright smile covered itself on Drago's face. Now Larsi should be coming any now to pick up his-
    Ah, there he is! Just on cue!

    Drago smiled to appreciate Larsi's thanks. His smile fading away and serious look dawned his expression as Larsi continued on. Drago couldn't hold back the grin that splattered across his face as leading a crew of his own for a mission, was something that he always wanted to do, but never got the chance "The new ship, wow I can't believe you're giving it to me! So much good coming to me today and I haven't even done much! Aight captain, consider the mission done."

    About 30 minutes later, after Drago cleaned himself up, he walked out fully dressed in cyborg gear on his chest, arms, and legs. Taking a deep breath, Drago boomed his voice out straight from his diaphragm "Link, Eve, Musashi, Alias, and Mista, get ready cause WE'RE HEADING OUT ON A MISSION!"

    Not long after Link came onto land and was directed to go to the outskirts and someone will be awaiting him to take him to the burial site of the fallen crew member. Link prodded onto the outskirts noting how cheerful the place was despite Pirates ruling, "something is odd, normally pirates are portrayed as all evil yet this island is completely different. This place ... no this pirate crew is different".

    A few moments later Link came across a man with blond hair, a fairly pale looking skin, dressed down in blue and black who was on his way back from the funeral with tears in his eyes holding the hand of his daughter as he proclaimed that the Captain gave him a good send off. "Hey, do you know where the grave is of StrawHatter?" asked Link which the man replied to just venture to the top and you'll spot it and that if his name was Link as he was marshaled to the docks.

    Link carried on as he slowly headed his way to the top of the hill as the wind picked up as he could hear crying,sobbing, screams and shouting as the mood became somber for the loss of a great man. As link headed and finally got to the top he could see a grave with roses all around the grave and still people paying their respects as thats where he could hear the echoe's of grief. Link made his way directly to the grave as he stood still as his heart beated a little faster as he got down on his knee placing a rose that he picked up en route to the grave. Taking a breath of fresh air as he placed his hand next to the grave he quivered "Hey StrawHatter, if you ever hear this, just know i may have never met you or gotten to know you but i hope you in a better place and watching over us." as he ushered a tear getting up to his feet then turning around and made his way to the docks. "Before i head to the docks i need to change my clothes ... good thing i actually got a bunch of extra".

    As Link made his way back to the edge just before getting to the top of the hill as he shut his eyes before a breeze of air whistled through and around him, as the breeze paused Link could hear the livelyhood of the island with birds chirping from the west and the echoes of men, women and children from the east. He opened his eyes and then made his way back down the hill and to the docks though just before he made his way down "StrawHatter hope your with us as the Silver Hairs move forward. If anything having you with us and make us grow. Though not just grow bigger but not just bigger but more and we will tell you our journey when we get to meet you in the next life".

    As Link approached the docks just in time noting his name being echoed and being part of a mission as he could just reply with a smile.

    To the resort
    *Gawk Gawk Gawk Gawk*

    Eve slowly opened her eyes after the seagulls woke her. Where are we? Eve stood up and noticed she was still in the room where she treated Link his wounds. It was also the room where she cleaned Straw his body before handing him over to the Captain. Her eyes started to tear, but she hoped it was because she looked through the window into the bright sky. Tsssk, falling asleep like this. Eve was annoyed she fell asleep, still blood on her hands and her clothes. Before walking outside and meet up with the crew, Eve decided to check up on Link his wounds. Everything was as it should be. It wouldn't take long before Link would wake up, she knew. Now, let's see where we have arrived.

    Eve stepped outside, she could barely keep her eyes open as a bright sun welcomed her. So, home it is huh. The first thing Eve noticed are the small wooden houses build on the island and the huge amount of people already waiting for them. She knew it wouldn't be a happy welcome at all once they knew what happened to Straw. Right in front of her she noticed the Captain. He was holding a huge bag in one arm and in the other was none other than Staw his body. Welcome home Straw.

    Larsi was the first one to get off the boat, followed by the others. Eve wasn't sure if she could leave Link like this, but she knew he would be okay and make his way into the island later on. Eve started to climb out of the boat, it was quiet, that could only mean one thing. It didnt take that long before people started to wake up and started to talk again. As she passed Drago, bro hugging with Alias, she noticed two heads staring at the top of the hill. So, that's the spot.. Couldn't be better. Eve followed both the Captain and her Vice Captain.


    The Burial of Straw
    Eve was one of the first at the top of the hill. The first thing she saw was her captain digging a hole with his bare hands. Before Eve could even aid him he was already finished digging. In the corner of her eyes Eve noticed Musashi passing her. He was caring a huge stone for Straw his grave. The next thing Eve heard was a short but very strong speech from their Captain, followed by Musashi his words.
    Other member of the crew were able to give their words, but once before his Grave Eve couldn't find the words she wanted to say. Her throat was dry and stuck. May you find your rest, Straw.
    He huge giant filled up the hole and the rock was placed. The Captain was already leaving after telling Minuano he wanted to speak to him in his office. It is time to clean myself. Ashamed as she was for being all bloody at a funeral, she punished herself in her head. Eve walked off to her hut to switch clothes and clean herself.

    After the burial of Straw
    It took Eve a while to clean herself and her clothes. Blood was everywhere, but she didnt mind.. as long as she could save lives. Now that she thought about it, she almost forgto about Link. He should be up and running by now, I should check on him soon. Let's take it easy for now. Eve walked towards her book shelf and grabbed one of her medicine books.

    For a long time Eve did read about a couple of medicines which could be helpful on their adventures. I won't lose another mate ever again, I promise it, Straw.


    She complained, Guess my study time is over. Eve put the book back in the shelf and prepared herself for another adventure.
    Not everyone is going with us, so I wonder what kind of mission we did get. Eve stepped outside where she noticed Drago and Link waiting for them. No need to check up on Link anymore I suppose, he looks more than fine.

    Alright Drago. Explain on our way to the open sea, for now lets go.
