Good times always pass so quickly and in the blink of an eye, three days have already passed.
On this day, as usual, the Four stayed in the cafe, drinking coffee, chatting, and enjoying a good lunch.
Suddenly, the light in the room dimmed
they saw the sea and sky outside the window, slowly changing from a clear blue sky to a cloudy and foggy sea.
It has been nearly a year since the four came to the Grand Line.
It is not that they have never encountered a foggy day.
On the contrary, they get up early every day and see the foggy weather every morning.
But the dense fog in the morning, and the special foggy days, were not as dense as they are now.
Since they sailed, it was the first time they had seen the sky turn pitch black, and the day suddenly turned into night.
From this, it can be seen how dense and exaggerated these fogs are that it would be able to block all the sunlight.
"This weather, have we entered the Florian Triangle"
Looking at the thick fog outside, Carina sighed "As expected of Pegasus, this speed is really fast."
"Nii-san, are you really going to rob "one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea"
Looking at El who was lying down next to her and enjoying Kuina's lap pillow, as if he is taking a nap, Nami asked, "What does he have that is worth robbing".
Opening his eyes, El looked at Kuina's beautiful eyes and began to lie without blinking: "In the pirate group we hunted in the water 7, there is a pirate group among them that escaped by luck from the Florian Triangle."
"They are interested in this special sea area.
when they broke into a dilapidated ship which is as large as an island, and in a certain room of the castle, located at the center of the ship, they saw a famous sword."
"Unfortunately, before they could take away the famous swords, they were caught and brought to Gecko Moria, and finally lost consciousness.
After waking up, they returned to their own ship for some unknown reason.
"And that sword.
If I'm not mistaken, it should be "Shusui" from the series of "21 Great Grade swords" in the popular book for the famous sword."
Kuina was stunned for a moment, and then recalled with a look of nostalgia on her face: "This sword, I seem to have heard my father say that it is the national treasure of the country called Wano"
"And when my father said it, he had a very complicated expression on his face."
Of course, it's complicated, after all, that's your family's sword.
El thought to himself.
As a descendant of the Shimotsuki, who would not want to take back the famous sword of their ancestors.
When El takes the Shusui from Gecko Moria's hands and returns to the East Blue to challenge Koushirou in the future, the other party's expression will be very funny.
He soaked your daughter and slashed you with the famous sword of your ancestor, This son-in-law is really too filial.
Thinking of this, El's face couldn't help showing a wicked smile.
This smile made Kuina tilt her head and not sure why.
"So that's the case, the National Treasures of Wano Country and also one of the 21 Great Grade swords, is this what you want to rob Nii-san!"
"I thought it was a devil fruit, but if it's just a devil fruit, it's not as attractive as the famous sword to Nii-san.
" Nami and Carina were slightly stunned.
As it gets darker outside, the Four take the elevator and go to the deck to take the helm.
Unleashing his Observation Haki with all his strength, El patted Nami's shoulders and pointed in one direction: "Nami, you keep driving in this direction."
Nami nodded, turned the rudder in her hand, and steered the Pegasus all the way.
On the way, they encountered two ghost ships drifting around in the Florian Triangle.
However, the number of ghost ships is obviously not as many as in 1520.
Because now Gecko Moria has just moved his base camp into the Florian Triangle for less than a year.
For a year, perhaps he has already started the zombie project, but the number of pirates whose shadows have been captured by him is still far less than the original.
Even Brook, who was lost in the Florian Triangle, had not accidentally broken into the terrifying Thriller Bark, then had his shadow taken away and implanted in the body of Ryuma Shimotsuki.
That is to say, the body of Ryuma Shimotsuki is still stored in the freezer of the Thriller Bark, and Shusui are place somewhere else by Gecko Moria.
If El wants to get the Shusui, he must read Gecko Moria or the three cadres' memories in order to find the location of Shusui.
To read their memories, you must defeat them.
So, this battle is inevitable.
If Kuina hadn't become a Logia user, El might have waited another year or two before coming to take Shusui.
El is confident that he will remain undefeated in the face of the decadent Gecko Moria, But on the Thriller Bark, in addition to Gecko Moria, there is also a 'strong enemy' that makes El extremely fearful.
That 'strong enemy' is the Horo Horo no Mi user, who has eaten a rule-type devil fruit that can ignore the level gap and instantly defeated most of the enemies - "Ghost Princess" Perona.
At his speed.
Perhaps he is not afraid of Perona's negative ghost.
But El was not afraid, but the three girls were because they don't have his speed.
And now, after entering the state of "three heads and six arms" the three girls, whose overall strength is stronger than El, no longer need him to worry about them.
Even if Gecko Moria's current strength is not as regress in the original manga and he can't defeat him.
He can still combine with Carina and Kuina, and use the ability of the Goro Goro no Mi to let his strength temporarily enter another level
This is what gives El, the courage to dare and challenge one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea.
