The Battle rages on. The Marines and the Whitebeard Pirates duking it out. Monkey D Luffy has managed to save his brother and they are retreating, having reached their goal.
What no one sees is a man, enveloped in shadow, standing on top of the Marineford Base. He waits to see if anything goes wrong, and that moment just appeared. Blackbeard, the traitor to the Whitebeard Pirates, has just arrived and is planning on killing Whitebeard.
"You won't kill him Teach, not on my watch." the man says in a deep voice before he jumps off the ceiling and slams into the ground between Teach and Newgate. He is about 2.8 m tall and a lean build, wearing a white shirt (like shanks') and dark blue pants. Over his body is a black cloak with a dark blue tint. His blond hair was styled in an undercut with the top seeming to be loosely curled. His unscared face looked serious. On his back was a greenish trident with ornate symbols on it. Around his neck were two necklaces. One was a green gem on a leather string, and the other was a golden locket with the letters K.N, N.N, and H.N inscribed on the front. This man was Naruto Newgate aka Yellow Flash, brother of Edward Newgate aka Whitebeard.
"Nice of you to come, brother," said Whitebeard, smiling.
"Anytime Edward how about I take it from here so you can go to your family. I'll catch up when I'm done." Responded Naruto with a smirk.
"Oh, Naruto. You're here as well, Perfect, I can just kill both of you." Said Blackbeard interrupting the moment. About to touch Naruto while his back was turned, Blackbeard smirked only for Naruto to disappear and appear above him with his left arm ready to deliver a blow full of ryuo haki.
"I think you're forgetting something," Said Naruto before delivering the blow straight to the neck, snapping his neck and killing him instantly.
"I'm the fastest man alive for a reason"
Everyone watching couldn't believe what just happened, even Akainu stopped his chase of Ace and Luffy to face the new foe. Luffy had stars in his eyes and Ace cried tears of happiness that his pops was safe.
"Gurararara very well little brother, I'll see you when you're done," Said Whitebeard before he jumped back to the Moby Dick in a single leap.
Naruto watched him leave before turning to face the remainder of the Blackbeard Pirates, The Marines, and the Seven Warlords.
"Now, who wants to fight"
Time Skip, Moby Dick
The Whitebeard Pirates were celebrating their victory. They had managed to do as planned, they managed to save both Ace and their Captain from what seemed like certain death.
To celebrate,are having a feast. Ace and Luffy are talking about what had happened to them since they last met in Alabasta. Marco was sitting, watching his Captain interact with his younger brother. All the while wondering how old he was. He looked to be in his 30s but that probably isn't true.
"If you don't mind me asking, how old are you Naruto?" he asked.
"Me? I'm 48." Replied Naruto
"Wow, old man why is it that you look so young though?" Asked Luffy entering the conversation with Ace walking behind him looking annoyed at his brother's brashness.
"Luffy don't insult him like that," said Ace
"Hehehe I don't mind. I have a son who is 14 and acts very similarly to him" Said Naruto laughing and saw Luffy smirk at Ace.
"Hey Naruto, how is Kushina by the way?" Asked Whitebeard.
"Oh, she's great. She's still a bit depressed after she disappeared," answered Naruto, his eyes showing great sadness and guilt.
"Yeah, It's a shame that poor Nami was kidnapped at such a young age." Said Whitebeard remorsefully.
"Huh Old Mustache Man, did you just say Nami?" Said Luffy intrigued.
"Now that think about it, Luffy isn't one of your crewmates named Nami?" Asked Ace curiously. Naruto gained a shocked look and looked at Luffy with hopeful eyes
"Sorry, Luffy was it? Can you describe this crewmate for me? Tell me what she looks like and how she acts. Please…" Said Naruto hopefully, still a bit shocked that she could be out there.
"Well, she has Orange hair, Brown eyes, and is about 1.7 m tall. She is like a demon in human skin. She loves money and is very good at Navigation. She even wants to make a map of the whole… world" Luffy trails off seeing Naruto crying while looking into the opened locket. He looked over his shoulder to find 2 pictures one of a young boy with black hair and handsome features, most likely his son that he talked about earlier. The other picture however shocked to his core. It was a baby with orange hair and brown eyes reaching up to her mother, who looked a lot like Nami but had blood-red hair. He assumed that this woman was Kushina.
'This in Nami's Dad' he thought to himself shocked.
"Yes, you've probably figured it out by now, but what you just described sounds exactly like Nami, she would always want to have a coin in her hand when she was a child. From what you said she seems to have her mother's navigation skills." Naruto explained.
"If you want to meet her, you can come with me to Saobody and meet her when the crew meets up." Luffy offered.
"That won't be necessary, I already called your crewmembers using the Den Den Mushi on your ship and told them I plan to teach you for 2 years while they stay and train there. Kuma sent them to islands which will allow them to learn to their maximum potential." a new voice entered the conversation. It was Silvers Rayleigh, the first mate to the Pirate King.
"Alright, Well I better get going, but before I go, I'll give you this," Naruto says as a gives Luffy a vivre card. "When your crew is reunited, I'll be waiting," he said before he disappeared in a yellow flash, as if he was never there, to begin with.
"Well, we better get going Luffy. The sooner we get going, the more training we will get done." Said Reyleigh.
Luffy couldn't wait to get stronger. He wanted to protect his crew, they were his closest friends. He started thinking of the revelation of Nami's parents being alive, then thought of Nami, the faintest of blushes appeared on his face thinking of his secret friend with benefits.
Naruto arrived at an island surrounded by whirlpools, he saw the luxurious castle that stood in the center of the island. He entered the castle with the guards letting him pass. He walked into the courtyard and found a woman sitting on a bench looking at a framed picture of the picture he has in his locket. She seemed to be crying but quickly wiped them away when she noticed him entering. He took out a wanted poster, Nami's to be exact and gave it to her. She looked at it and began to cry and then said only one word.
