Chapter 2: Ten Years Later By: Lvdoomien _________________________________________________________________________________________
<The small town of Dar on Sargasso Island is shown, the same town where ten years earlier three bandits got their asses handed to them by an unknown man who had control over granite>
<Villagers are going about their business, with Marine soldiers patrolling the streets. Suddenly the peacefullness is broken by an angry yell>
Yeller: TOMÁS!!!! YOU GET YOUR THIEFING ASS BACK HERE!!!! <A large man with a small black afro and a marine uniform with no sleeves wielding two large axes chases after Tomás, who is now 18 years old and is running down the street carrying a loaf of bread and wearing a tank top and black jeans. A dozen or so marines follow the marine with the two axes>
Tomás: Calm down! It's just a loaf of bread you grumpy bastard!
Marine: Yeah, a loaf of bread that's marine property! Now hand over that bread so I can arrest you! <looks back and yells> Run faster soldiers!
Tomas: Seriously man, I'm homeless for God's sake! Just calm down! <runs down an alley and knocks over some boxes>
Marine: After him men! Hiah! <throws one of his axes at Tomás>
Tomás: Sheru Shield! <Tomás quickly turns around then makes a large scallop sea shell grow out of his arm as a shield to block the ax. The seashell stops the ax as it shatters. Tomás keeps running from the marines>
Marine: Halt damn it! <picks up his ax and keeps running after Tomás with the other soldiers> (Damn, I hate that boy's Devil Fruit. How did he find one and I've never even seen one?!)
<After some more running, Tomás runs into a very familiar dead end and stops>
Tomás: Oh, come on! <drops the loaf of bread and turns around towards the marine> Okay screw it! I'm gonna kick your ass again Nero!
Nero: You won't even get near me! Soldiers attack! <The marine soldiers draw their weapons and face Tomás>
Tomás: What's wrong Nero? You don't wanna fight me yourself today? <A single row of scallop sea shells appear on Tomas' arm and around his hands like knuckles>
Nero: Shut it!
Tomás: Bring it on, marines!
Soldier: Try and stop this! <the soldier shoots at Tomás with a bazooka>
Tomás: Sheru Shield! <Tomás makes one sea shell on his arm enlarge and stops the shot from the bazooka> Sheru Shuriken! <Tomás takes a razor sharp sea shell from his arm and throws it at the soldier's chest, causing the soldier to fall back>
Nero: What are you guys waiting for?! Attack him! <The other soldiers charge at Tomás with their sabers drawn>
<Tomás punches them all or throws a seashell at them one by one, then faces Nero after all the soldiers are defeated>
Tomás: So, are you gonna fight me now Nero or are you gonna run away like you did last time?
Nero: <Angered> Forget jail! I'm gonna kill you Tomás! HRAAAHHH! <Charges at Tomás with both of his axes raised>
Tomás: Sheru Uppercut! <Tomás does an uppercut and punches Nero in the face then sends him flying upward, leaving a shell-shaped bruise on his face>
Tomás: <looks upward at Nero> Well that settles that. I'm outta here. <picks up the loaf of bread and runs off>
<Later, after eating the loaf of bread, Tomás walks around the village aimlessly thinking to himself with his hands in his pockets>
Tomás: (God damn it, I'm getting nowhere around here. Ever since Nero arrested Andre and his new crew I've only been able to steal food from those marine bastards. And nobody on this damn island has a boat they wanna sell. Not even a damn rowboat! You know what, maybe I can just hop on a boat and get outta here...)
<While walking aimlessly, Tomás ends up near the port where he sees some pirates loading supplies onto a big pirate ship. A large, muscular pirate with a torn open gray and blue striped shirt and ragged red hair with a gray and blue torn bandana is ordering the pirates around. The pirate has a Nodachi on his back and a gattling gun for a left hand>
Pirate Captain: You! Be careful with those fruits! If I get Scurvy because you dropped that crate, I'm going to shoot you 'til there's nothing left of you! And you! Don't drop that rum! You'll be sorry if you drop that! And all of you! Load up faster! I don't wanna be here all day!
Pirates: Yes captain!
<All the pirates work faster while Tomás hides behind a crate and watches>
Tomas: (Perfect! I'll just get on their ship. Now should I just ask or go for it... Eh what's the fun in asking?)
<Tomás crawls into a crate of apples when nobody's looking and gets loaded on board the ship with the rest of the crates>
Tomás: (And now our pirate adventure begins! This stupid crate's crowded as hell though) <Kicks back a little in his crate while eating an apple that's in there with him>
Pirate Captain: Alright men! Let's shove off! <The captain and all the pirates get on board the ship and sail off>
A few days later
<It's morning. Several pirates carry a crate onto deck in front of the captain and dump it onto the ground. Tomás falls onto the ground along with some already eaten apples>
Tomas: Ow! What the.... Oh. Hey uhhh this isn't my bed! Where am I?
<The pirate captain is standing over Tomás with an angry look on his face>
Pirate Captain: Oh you know exactly where you are you lil' stowaway! You're gonna regret ever thinking about stowing away with the Gattle Pirates! <The pirate captain unsheathes his Nodachi with one hand and points his gattling gun hand at Tomás while the rest of the crew draw their weapons> Now stand still so you can die quickly!
Tomas: <stands up and raises his fists at the pirate captain while a single row of scallop sea shells go up his arms and hands> I'll do what I want!
