After thanking the man who pooped his shoulder back in Kaze noticed that a middle aged man turned towards him "welcome, sir" said the man and Kaze was a little shocked 'SIR?!', "Please call me Kaze" he replied quickly. ""ok then welcome Kaze" said the man "I'm Daniel" he continued. Kaze nodded as a replay. Then Kaze heard music come from behind him, when he looked back he saw that some woman just stood there, played a mandolin and singing in the middle of the arena. He turned back to Daniel with a confused look that was easily understood as 'Why is that woman singing behind me?' and replayed Daniel by leafing his shoulder in a movement that expressed 'Don't ask me...''
Arriving at the docksEl soon found the small ship that LT had just won for them. 'This one ain't no fishing boat and it isn't even that old and might be able to take something.'
Walking up towards the lader El took a swing and kicked the planks just off to the side, 'at least that sounds solid.' Climbing up she walked around the deck noticing the sunken area but more intrested in where the main beams are for strength.
Heading below deck El looked around in all of the cabins almost picking one out for herself. Opening the last cabin someone was already here. Almost screaming out El shouted at the sleeper "WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON MY BOAT" shocking herself and waking the sleeper.
The woman behind Daniel and Kaze started to play a mandolin. The melody was lovely and mysterious, but why did she play it here in the middle of an arena. ‘Guess that’s what musicians do...’ Daniel figured and exchanged confused looks with Kaze.
The other people had begun their walk towards the new ship. How did it look? How huge was it? Daniel could nothing but be curious and he decided to take the courage of asking Kaze to join him to the docks. “Would you care to join me down towards the ship, sir…err…I mean, Kaze?” Kaze was a former member of the Windmill pirates and must have been familiar with the ship already.
The sounds of the calm ocean engulfed his ears as Daniel started walking along the path down to the ship.
"Sure" replayed Kaze to Daniel's offer "Just let me get these things" he said and walked towards his "former crew". The captain looked very angry as he gave Kaze the Pirate flag, "You could'v won with that last attack if you hadn't forfited" said the windmill captain. Kaze just took the flag without saying anything and turned around. 'I wonder if that true'hee thought trying to ignore the pain in his body, he coughed into his hand and when he looked he saw it was dyed with blood. "This attack's reaction might be too much for me".
"Lets go then" he said to Daniel and they both started walking towards the new ship

Kiara's eyes sprung open, shocked that someone had come aboard her ship and screamed at her. Oh yeah! She had stolen this ship but hadn't taken off yet. This must be her ship...
She sat up, sighing and hardening her expression knowing this could lead to a fight, though she didnt exactly know what to expect. She studied her expression, trying to find a threat in it. She saw a mixture of confusion, shock, and a bit of angriness in her eyes, though her face just bore a shocked expression. She glared at her, knowing full well what she thought. Hell what person didn't think it. Everyone around her saw her as a hideous monster about to eat their children. Being shunned and beaten almost daily was no picnic, so she was a little bitter towards people.
"So, this is your boat? Pretty nice. But Im not giong to leave and that is final,"
Her adrenillane started pumping so furiouslt she lost control and tackled her. Then they started to get into a little fight, eventually walking out of the cabin on to main deck in plain view. She smirked, her hair flowiung behind her as she spoke and fought.
"So, little girl think she can fight?"
"Yes this is my boat and you will leave it" El screamed back at the woman, "And I may be short but I still can take you down". Pulling the dagger from her waist she held it in her left hand and sized up this woman. Her hair was flowing out behind the fox ears grabbing El's attention for a moment but it was the confident smile showing the fangs that worried her the most. She was in control of this not El and she didnt like it.
Lunging at the woman she tried to tackle her but missed and stuck the dagger into the rails of the boat. Quickly turning Kiara was soon on her pinning Elena to the deck. Taunting El "Little girls like you shouldn't be playing around on ships playing at being a pirate." Making her mad El swung her hand up and grabbed hold of Kiara's arm forcing her ring into the arm making it go slightly numb. Shocking Kiara she jumped off rubbing her arm looking slightly startled but still confident and in control she reassed the little girl.
Rez plods along the road toward the docks to their newly won ship. Little beads of sweat trickle down his face, plastering his hair to his face obscuring his vision. He consistantly blows out of the corner of his mouth at his hair to push it out of the way, to no avail. His hands are occupied holdind the Captain secured on his back until he can get to the ship to rest. "Geeze, LT, next time don't pass out after a fight. I'm not carrying you back every time." He says to the sleeping LT.
Annoyed of his hair and sweat he finally reaches the docked ship. He lowers the knocked out captain to the ground before the ship and wipes his face in great relief. With his eyes cleared he noticed El and the fox woman on the deck of the ship. He stared for a moment, his brain processing what he was witnessing. 'Hmm... she's cute... oh... wait a minute..'
He suddenly realized that they were fighting! He quickly turned to LT and gave him a good whack on the head and said, "Get up LT!, we got a problem here!" He leaped over to the ship and placed himself between the startled Kiara and prone Elena. "Stop it! Stop fighting! What's going on here!" He kept looking back and forth between the two combatants making sure they didn't try something sneaky.
L.T. rubbed his head and sat up, a snarl on his face. "You didn't have to hit my head like that, I was out for a bit, but I was awake for the last bit..." L.T. said, and he looked up seeing Rez get between the two girls. "Hmm, he's a bit of a risk taker, trying to pick up two women at the same time."
Standing up, L.T. heard Rez say "Stop it! Stop fighting! What's going on here!" With that, L.T. jumped up and landed on the rails of the ship, almost falling off because his strength hadn't completely returned, meaning his balance wasn't all to great yet. L.T. crouched down and looked at the three and he smiled and lightly waved saying, "Yo!"
L.T. got down, walked over next to Rez, and then looked around the ship, seeing a small dagger hole in the rails, L.T. breathed out. "Why is there a hole in my new ship?" L.T. lifted both girls by the back of their shirts, and tossed them gently enough for them to land a few feet away on their feet. L.T. noticed the ship's deck was softer than most, and he looked down, seeing it had grass on the deck, a nice soft grass.
"Wow! In all my years, I have only seen one or two ships with a dock like this..." L.T. looked up, thought, and then turned to the other woman and with a smile said, "Hello, the name is L.T., captain of this ship, who are you?"
After this small girl screamed at her in a pissed off tone, she almost burst out laughing, but to keep her cool just let out a small chuckle and replyed smoothly.
"You. Take me down? Ha! A baby mouse could take you down!"
Knowing full well the girl ignored her comment and instead of backfiring with words, when she pulled out a dagger, it only worried her the tiniest amount. The girl lunged at her and she quickly reacted by sliding out of the way, watching her dagger stab the railing. She let her instincts take over and like a fox hunting a rabbit, she pounced on her and pinned her down, using as much force as she could into it. She smirked at seeing her helpless and decided to taunt her.
"Little girls like you shouldn't be playing around on ships playing at being a pirate."
Her eyes widened, and she bit her lip as her arm was grabbed and the ring dug into her skin. Seeing a bit of blood come out, she jumped off of her, Grasping her arm as it went numb, bleeding still. Though she was in pain, she hid it and put a confident look onto her face. She was about to lunge in, grabbing on of her hidden daggers in her cloak and forgeting about the blood running down her arm, but not quite pulling it out yet, until a man jumped between her and tiny.
Widening her eyes, she just stood there, as time seemed to just stand still. She was puzzled when another man was crouched down and said yo in a happy tone of voice. Who were these people? Who ever they are, they outnumber me. But she gasped as she was lifted from her thoughts, and appearantly the ground as well and tossed to the side lightly enough to land on her feet.
After being lightly tossed, Kiara backed up a few feet slowly, glancing between the people all staring at her hideous form. She concentrated on the one named L.T. once he spoke to her. Her eye brows furrowed, and her gaze hardened as she gritted her teeth in frustration from being caught for once in her life. Her eyes widened though, as she realised that her hood wasn't on. Wait... her hood wasn't on and yet they didn't know who she was? She raised an eyebrow as she asked a simple question that made her seem almost suspicious. She also hoped no one noticed her arm to use it as a sign of weakness.
"Are you saying you have no idea who I am?"
This is great! If they have no idea who I am, then they cant turn me in! I just have to make up a name and Ill slide off of the ship un noticed later before they leave, since they will probally want to keep me here.
Hayato watched the woman with distrust in his eyes as he thought he knew her.
"As far as I'm intrested your an intruder on our boat." Taunting the girl it was only now that LT was here that El could have a look at this new woman. Seeing the fox ears first El knew why she got out from under her, 'the ring works on her aswell then'.
Looking at Lt and following his eyes to the hole her dagger left El turned red and said to him "Don't worry about that hole I can fix that and its the only one this boat has got"
L.T. thought, and then smiled and nodded. "It's alright then." L.T. looked at Kiara, and with a smile said, "Are you saying we should know, are you wanted, a hardened criminal with a horrible past?"
L.T. sighed, sat down, and rubbed his head. "So yeah, why are you on this ship?" He asked, looking at Kiara, feeling a little dizzy from moving to much.
"Why should I tell you?"
She said quietly, answering both of his questions. She heard something drop to the floor like a drop of water or something. She glanced down and, noticing it was the blood dripping down her arm, she lifted it slowly and started to lick the blood off and the cut as well. 'Damn fox instincts..' At this point she didnt care about the others accusing stares and strange looks, so she turned around, noticing the suspicious look on one mans face. As she continued cleaning the cut, she began walking across deck towards the ladder and using her other arm to pull her hood over her head, reconceling her tail as well. They werent going to stop her. No one ever did...
Rez stepped in front of the strange woman, blocking her way. Any casual attempt to pass him was thwarted. "Think we can just let you go like that? From our point of view you could have been doing anything on this ship. Sabotage the hull, set explosives, hell! You could have been just napping for all we know! Either way we can't just let you go. Normally people don't go on random ships without any reason."
He flicks his hair out of his eyes and continues, a serious, but soothing, look in his eyes. "Just understand this, as long as you don't try to fight your way out of this as you did before, I'm sure we can talk and sort this out. We don't have to fight if we don't need to, so be reasonable. Stay and talk for a while. Now why are you here?"
Kiara's gaze hardened as she looked at the man in front of her. She moved to the side but he followed her continuing to block her way. Sighing, her face softened and she sat down on the deck, knees propped up to her chest. For some reason, she felt she could trust these people. One arm lay on top of her knees, the other one resting beside her, as she looked to the side, not making any eye contact. She was going to do this, then escape from the island quick before marines got to her. Or, maybe she should just accept her fate.. Probably the later of the two. She began to speak in a sad, yet quitet tone, expecting them to start beating on her or something afterwords. But they deserved to know the truth.
"My name is Kiara. The spy on the wanted posters. I am a monster, who has faced abuse her whole life, phisical and verbal. I was going to steal this ship after I was done taking a small nap. She woke me, I paniced so I fought. Turn me in if you like. I am used to beatings. My bounty is high.. so If you turn me in or kill me and bring them my head, you will be heavily rewarded. I am as prepared as ever."
She winced, and jammed her eyes shut as one of them started walking towards her, expecting a beating and death.
Rez was a little stunned. 'Spy? Monster? Really? What should I do?...' He scratched his head and said, "Well, ok Kiara, I'm kinda shocked you told us that. I really had no idea, I never pay attention to those posters myself. And monster? I doubt that. You bet you are cute if you didn't hide in that cloak all the time." He squatted down and examined her from his spot and then stood up suddenly and shook his head.
"Ack! I'm getting sidetracked. LT, you're the captain so it's up to you what we do." He looked from LT to Kiara and back out of nervousness. 'I don't want to hurt her. Abuse? Beatings? I can't do that to her. Or stand it, but if thats what the captain wants, I'll have to. She seems so... sad. I can't believe that so many would have treated her as she said she was.'
L.T. walked over next to Rez and looked at Kiara, using his head to push Rez to the side a bit. L.T. held up a wanted poster and smiled and pointed at it and said, "I once had a bounty of 100,000,000 berries..." L.T. laughed and stood up, and walked over to El.
He put his hand on her shoulder and said, "That ring, never place it on me... unless you really need to..." L.T. smiled and turned around and said, "I have it! You shall Join my Crew, Kiara the spy of the Kame Pirate crew, led by the handsome 74 year old captain once worth 100,000,00 berries."
"Don't worry I wont." El looked sullen in her reply and turned the ring on her finger round to ditract herself. "Lt I wouldn't boast about that too much or we are going to have evey rag tag bunch of bounty hunters after you again, espically now theres a infamous spy on board whos proberly worth something simlar. On that whought shouldn't we get moving and out of here"
El looked around at the samll crew and then at the size of the boat. She headed over to Kiara and offered her a hand to help her up. "No hard feeling between us ok, besides I dont like to hold grudes it takes too much effort to rember who and why."
Daniel and Kaze arrived the boat, which was of formidable size and impressive statue, and heard loud voices from the deck of the ship. Daniel made a short, confused look towards Kaze and began climbing the ladder to the deck.
Slightly confused and anxious, Daniel gazed towards the open door on his left corner, and nodded towards Kaze; they were going to check it out.
L.T and a couple the other crew members were gathered inside, as if watching on something; when Daniel entered, he saw a woman, rather stunning, standing on the middle of the attention. Kaze coughed to announce their arrival, and when Kaze and Daniel turned towards L.T he simply said: “Ah, you have arrived…Well, welcome a new member of the crew, Kiara!”
Daniel held his eyes towards the ground, a little confused over another member joining the crew, and made a small bow towards this “Kiara”. He had no idea of the events which had led to this, nor had the courage to ask at that moment.
"Kiara?" said Kaze after hearing LT introduce the new member. He took a few steps forward and looked at the woman who was standing there, "how did you get into this crew" he asked and coughed. "well..." started the woman, but she couldn't continue this sentence because she was interrupted by a chain of violent cough. Kaze continued to cough for a while, each one became more painful, and soon blood started to gush out of his mouth. And when the coughing stopped Kaze was laying on the ground unconscious.
OOC: full reaction of his last attack fianlly got him,
Rez nodded at LT's decision and then turned to Kiara with a smile. "That's great! Betcha didn't see that one coming. Here you should get up. No reason to cringe anymore." He extended and hand and with a quick tug, helped Kiara up off the deck. "I know you might be thinking 'I'm getting forced into this' but think about it. We're really nice for pirates. We'll, I am at least. I can't speak for anyone else, butt you get the idea. And besides we are here for you and keep you sale from bounty hunters and the like, and you would do the same for us, not to mention your expertise in spying will be handy. Nobody else here could fit in your shoes I'm sure. I'm about as stealthy as cannonfire."
He perked up, suddenly remembering something, flicked a platinum-blond bang out of his eyes and said quickly, "Oh I'm so sorry I almost forgot to introduce myself. I'm Reselien Coran, but that is a bit odd, so you can call me Rez. I'm not really famous for anything yet like LT is, but I want to be. No bounty yet. Wait hey!..."
He turned to LT accusingly, "LT... 100,000,000 Beli!? Why didn't you tell me before. I think that is kinda important information. No fair. I want a bounty... *grumble* although I doubt it will take long in your company. Depending on what we do." He smiled and let it go. He made a look over to the horizon and began daydreaming.

L.T. smiled at Rez's reation to his bounty, and he said, "Just hope they can get a good picture of you when you do get a bounty." L.T. turned and watched as Kaze fell to the ground, a bit of blood on the ground and around his mouth.
"Umm.... maybe we should get him inside on a bed... and maybe squeeze some lemons... maybe he has scirvy..." L.T. said, standing over Kaze, poking the man in the cheek. L.T. picked the man up without problems and opened the door and walked down the stairs to a good room, and he walked in and put Kaze onto a bed.
"Where did that doctor go... man... I wish we had someone with medical knowedge here...." L.T. said, rubbing his head and looking around.
OOC: I just realized, having a crew with postions open is best for us, you know, giving it more of a One Piece feel.
"I don't think he has scurvy LT, those bruses you gave him so it must be where you hit him so hard he has finally let it show after holding it back so long." saying to LT she walked towards Kaze, "such a good start" she was mumbling when she pushed Kaze over onto his back. "Rez stop dreaming about how ugly your picture will look and help LT move Kaze here into one of the beds below deck and try not to hit his head on every stair on the way down."
Walking towards the back of the boat "Kiara if you were going to borrow this boat you must be able to get it ready so give me a hand will you so we can get out of here before anything else intresting happens"
"Sure, I can try,"
Kiara said from inside her clock, hood still on even after the comment by Rez which made her blush. She was sure they were going to make her take it off later, but for now, her face was hidden. She watched them pick up the man and go below deck. Once they dissappeared from her sight, she turned to the girl, ready for orders.
"Soooooo, whatcha want me to do small fry,"
She asked adding some playful teasing at the end.
Rez snapped out of it and muttered to himself, "I wasn't thinking about that..." 'I just couldn't help but wonder what awesome things we might run into out on the sea. The people we will meet and the enemies we will have to fight. I can't wait!' He thought with a smile.
He was going to help Kaze, but LT seemed to have that handled quite well by himself. Kiara and El went to get the ship ready, so he had to find something to do. "Kitchen." He said to himself and began searching for his domain.
It didn't take too long to stumble upon the kitchen, his world. He took time to look over all the utensils, check their edges, and made sure they were clean. He looked through the food stores for their supplies and made mental notes on what they had. He sat down on a wooden chair by the dining table and took a long gaze over everything and just let it all soak in.
