Chapter 1: Alex
It was a harsh day for Alex Newgate, tears trickling down her cheeks as she walked to a place she never knew she would come to so fast. She stood in front of her now late father’s grave and offered white roses, trembling as she does so.
It was the end of the Marineford war between the Whitebeard pirates and the government also known as the Marines. Many have fallen and only a few were left breathing, me being one of them cried once I saw my father covered in blood from the enemies and his own. All the pirates that have been left alive wept in tears too as they see their strong captain who treated them all like his children, down on the grass, lifeless. I ...view middle of the document...
I was only able to them from a very far side to avoid them catching me and saw what was going on. I wasn’t able to hear Jinbei’s words though, as I was far away from the two. The sight though, was something I was surprised to see. When it ended I quickly ran away and hoped the next day would be hopeful.
I ran a bit more until I bumped into someone and fell down. I looked up to see Silvers Rayleigh, the pirate king’s closest friend. I apologized and continued running but stopped when a heard him talking to Luffy. I listened carefully, hearing the words ‘training’ and ‘new era’ basically.
‘I guess he’ll have to improve for the New World huh?’ I thought lastly before I ran to the ship that was full of scratches.
“I hope you’re doing ok there dad.” I said while looking up at the sky and continued walking to a very special room in the ship.
It was a new day and I was still inside the room looking around the things left behind. Most of them were journals of the places the pirates have gone to. And yet one caught my eye. It was a bracelet with 3 pearls and a decoration made out of cloth. This was something I had made when I was only little, and my father had treasured for years.
“Alex” someone knocked and let himself in.
“Rayleigh?” I called out in confusion.
“You yourself have to prepare for the New World.” He said
“You are not going to just stay in this ship Newgate. You will have to move on yourself.”
“But I don’t want to leave!” I shouted.
“Your father wouldn’t be pleased about this” He said, which hit a memory of mine from earlier.
‘I may be gone, but please don’t cry. Have adventures with people you love, and keep me in your mind’
“There’s no one else I can be with, all of them are gone. So how am I supposed to be prepared on my own?” I asked while I still held the bracelet.
“I will help you. I promised your father I would and I wouldn’t break that promise.” He said.
“I- I guess”
“You shall prepare then, you are not allowed to bring anything tomorrow. We will start at the Calm Belt Forest” He said and left
I slid the bracelet onto my upper arm and decided to read the old adventures before going to the Marineford war. I...
