4. Standing Against Fate Part 4

 

 Robin sat, looking the Ylissean tactician who had closed his eyes, seeming to process her story. “Believe me now?” She asked inquisitively, taking a sip from a glass that Sanji had brought her.

“You think I could doubt you after hearing that? That’s Virion alright. But he never told us anything about coming to another world. Perhaps that was Future Virion. No, you said he was a teen… so it would be the same Virion regardless.” The white haired man contemplated, his breathing steady and even as he sat in deep thought. “But how did he get here… and how did he get back?”

“I honestly can’t say… we had many adventures, if you will, but one day many years after we first met…” She paused, biting her lip. “We were being pursued by Marines… we got separated. I never saw him again.” Robin informed dejectedly, lowering her head despondently.

“And you’re sure this is the same guy? Not some coincidence?” Nami asked, giving the other girl a comforting smile.

“No doubt about it, that’s Virion.” The tactician affirmed, rising to stand. “Is there anything else you can tell me?”

The female Robin bit her lip and glanced at Nami. “Yes, but it is best if we save that for another time. There are some things I prefer we kept between me and him, but I’d allow you to hear it, who knows, we don’t know what will help you.”

Nami smirked and began elbowing Robin teasingly. “Something you don’t want me to know about… hmu… I wonder what that could be. I’m sure Sanji wouldn’t like to hear about that.”

“If you’re insinuating we did anything sexual then you are mistaken.” Robin denied, humphing and turning away. She turned to the other Robin and stared for a moment.

“What?” The tactician asked, briefly wondering if there was something on his face.

“Sanji tells me you are married. Is that correct tactician?” Robin asked, her face a steady and solid mask, devoid of emotion.

“Yeah…” Robin answered, confused at her question. “Why?”

“Did…” She paused for a moment before taking a light breath, almost unnoticeable, and continued. “Did Virion ever marry?”

Robin was a bit taken back by the question, but in retrospect, it made a lot of sense. The two must have spent a lot of time together, growing up at such a confusing age with no real guidance, “Yeah, to a woman named Sully.”

“The one that hits as hard as Nami?” Robin asked, quizzically, raising an eyebrow.

“The very same. They seem to work well together, somehow. I don’t quite get it completely.” He admitted, shrugging his shoulders.

“Oh… I see. Well… I’m glad he’s happy.” Robin uttered, unconvincingly

“Robin…” Nami muttered, grabbing the archeologist’s shoulder consolingly.

“I’m sorry, it must be hard for you for memories this old and this painful to be dredged back up again.” The newest crew member apologized.

“No, it’s fine.” The raven haired woman insisted, sniffling and clearing her throat. “I’ve moved on, I’ve made such wonderful friends.”

“HEY ROBIN! We’ve hit land! Come on, we’re going to go buy some stuff for you!” Luffy yelled, from a location that neither Robin could pinpoint due to the sheer volume of the scream.

“We better go, Captain’s orders.” The female Robin said, rising and extending her hand to the tactician.

“Yeah…” Robin agreed, grabbing her outstretched hand.

“Commander Murasakino! Jones and Tanaka have spotted Captain Baku Shidori’s ship ‘The Floating Prison.’ They are about to board sir!” A Marine with a golden overcoat announced. He was very well built and he had a sheathed sword tucked at his side.   “Is that you Faustus?” The Marine commander asked, rubbing his black, unfocused eyes and yawning. His hair was frizzy and standing on end, a clear sign of his midday nap. His bed was a mess of heavy wools blankets, throw pillows and what appeared to be bloodstains.   “Yes sir, I came to wake you up Commander Murasakino. We received one of Captain Baku’s nightingales.” Faustus explained, bowing respectfully. “We were worried you would sleep all day.”   Yawning, the commander stumbled out of bed, rolling off of it and landing on his head. “Yeesh… I guess these are some of the side effects Vegapunk spoke of. I’ll be sure to submit some kind of note to him about it.” Tossing on his Marine uniform, he turned to his underling. “By the way, Faustus?”   “Yes Commander?” Faustus asked respectfully, fiddling with his sword.   “Call me Bībā. You’re a Lieutenant Commander, so you’re basically an equal.” Bībā insisted as the two exited his room. Several chore boys stopped to salute the two, before going back to swabbing.   “But you have applied for that Read Admiral position, didn’t you? You’d be skipping three ranks? If you get the promotion you’ll be far higher than me.” Faustus argued, climbing up the stairs to reach the upper deck.   “Only because you haven’t had the field time I’ve had. You are still young, but you’ve gotten so far. You’re quite lucky.” Bībā concluded, shielding his eyes against the light of the sun.   “Good one Commander.” Faustus chuckled, approaching the guardrail where the Floating Prison was approaching.   “You’ll surpass me someday, I have no doubt about that. You’ve proven you have what it takes.” Bībā surmised.   “MURASKINO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Baku howled from the head of ship, which was slowing to board Bībā’s ship, the Longana.   “It’s going to be a long day isn’t it Faustus?” Bībā said sighing, removing his hands from his ears, which he had fortunately placed there as soon as he caught sight of Baku. They knew each other, and you quickly learned, being around Baku, about how to make him slightly more tolerable.   “To be fair, the day’s almost over.” The Lieutenant Commander reasoned.   “That won’t help.” The Commander sighed, then straightened up as Baku sauntered across the gangplank. “Welcome Captain, to what do I owe the honor of your visit?” He asked stiltedly, trying to avoid disrespecting the Captain. He had several secrets he kept from him, and he wanted him to keep his distance as much as possible because he wouldn’t be pleased with any of them. The less reason he gave him to instigate, the better.   “I assume you got the reading on your Devil Fruit Radar?” Baku asked, removing his device from his pocket.   “No, I was asleep.” Bībā dissuaded, hoping the Captain would catch on. Fortunately for him, his superior wasn’t the most intelligent of the Marines.   “WHAT! You fell asleep!” Baku raged, slight steam coming off of his forehead.   While the Captain and Commander were talking, Momi had snuck along to Faustus. “Hello handsome, it’s been too long.” She purred seductively, pressing her body him.   “Far too long.” Faustus agreed, stroking Momi’s short hair, much to the anger and jealousy of Momi’s subordinates. Faustus and Bībā’s men, on the other hand, were giving the wolf whistle and cheering their leader on.   “We should make up for lost time then.” Momi whispered, kissing the Lieutenant Commander deeply, stroking his back as she pulled him even closer.   “You’re so lucky Faustus!” One of the Marines cheered, causing the two to pause their passionate embrace.   “You don’t know the half of it.” Faustus said, winking slyly at the soldier.   “Momi! Save it for later.” Baku barked, and the two Lieutenant Commanders pulled apart grudgingly. “As I was saying! We sensed a spike of energy and went to check it out.”   “What did you find?” Bībā asked, trying hard to stifle a yawn.   “Straw Hat Luffy, as well as the cause of the spike, a man with lightning powers.” Baku scoffed, angrily recalling the fight and he clutched his arm, which still was in great pain.   ‘The Straw Hat crew… soon…’ Bībā thought but quickly attempted to move on to keep the Captain from being suspicious. “But the ruler of Skypeia has the only recorded Lightning Devil Fruit… I think I would have heard some news if he died… I’ll contact Vegapunk about it.”   Withdrawing a parchment from Baku turned to Bībā. “More importantly… have you heard the news? About the Second Division Commander of the Whitebeard pirates? I heard he was captured by Blackbeard.” Baku informed, passing the scrap of paper to the Commander.   “I found this making the rounds on a pirate ship, but I don’t know how true it is. It’s not even coded after all. Seems just like idle bragging.” He paused for a moment, shrugging his shoulders. “Though this is just rumor so far. I’ve yet to hear anything official. But I did get a summons back to Navy Headquarters. I assume the two are connected.”   “The Second Division Commander… Fire Fist Ace? Isn’t that Garp’s grandson?” Bībā asked, scratching his chin in thought. “And Straw Hat’s brother if I remember correctly from Garp.” He chuckled fondly. “Man for such a big guy that geezer cannot hold his liquor.”   “So what you’re saying is we should pursue Straw Hat.” Baku snickered, clenching his fist tightly.   Commander Murasakino shrugged. “That’s an option I suppose. I am a bit curious about this Lightning man, but I don’t think it’s time yet.” He said, thinking out loud.   “What was that?” Baku asked, surveying the younger man suspiciously. “Something’s up with you.”   “Oh, it’s just that… Well, I submitted my application for Rear Admiral so I want to be near Navy Headquarters in case I’m called in. Wouldn’t want to give a halfhearted chase right?” Bībā laughed nervously, hoping the Captain wouldn’t question further.   “You, a Rear Admiral?!” Baku laughed, clutching his side as he doubled over. “Come on kid, get real. I’ve applied for an Admiral position several times and nothing has come of it yet. Even if you refused the Captain promotion, they aren’t just gonna give you three advancements.”   ‘Maybe if you bothered to show up to the meetings instead of going off on your own escapades you could be a Vice-Admiral by now.’ Bībā thought, thinking back on the Captain’s horrendous attendance record.   “Regardless, we should heed the summons, wouldn’t want to screw up my chances of becoming a Rear Admiral right?” The Commander asked, fighting to keep his eyes open.   “Yeah sure, hopefully, we can get Straw Hat to come to us.” Baku thought giddily. “Next time I’ll crush them, Straw Hat and Lightning Boy.”   “So we’re agreed then? We’ll head to Navy Headquarters and receive this assignment or whatever it is. Momi, Faustus?” He asked, turning to the couple.   Faustus was holding Momi in the air, bridal style, and the two had already begun heading towards the private quarters.  “Intellexit Commander. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have some martial duties to attend to.” Faustus smirked, taking his wife away.   “Poka!” Momi called out before the two disappeared from sight.   “What was that?” Baku asked, trying to understand the foreign language as though the idea of alternating languages surprised him. Strange considering his habit of doing the same.   “Understood and see ya, in that order.” The Commander sighed, rubbing his eyes in mock stress in order to close his eyes for a brief moment without getting noticed. “I think we should contact Smoker, get the Five Nightmares together you know?”   “That baka? No thanks, I don’t like him.” Baku spat, that particular Marine being a sensitive issue with the Captain.   “Whatever, we’ll head to Paradise Island and restock, just don’t cause any trouble.” Murasakino ordered, rubbing his eyes and slowly skulking off towards his bed. “Capiche?” He asked, causing all the Marines present to groan.
