Can you trust me?
Pairing: ZoroxRobin, LuffyxNami
WARNING: May contain spoiler!
Usopp and Robin flinched with shock when they heard a loud noise on the other train deck right through the door.
"What's with all the noise?" asked Robin.
Ussop cheered happily, "Yeah! It must be Sanji and Franky! They made it!"
"Mr. Cook? And…who's Franky?" asked Robin.
"Uh…a guy Ussop met, he's a strong guy and he's a cyborg." Said Ussop, still acting as if he were Soge-King.
"A cyborg?" asked Robin in surprise.
"Yeah, cool isn't it?" grinned Ussop.
Robin looked at him angrily. "Cool or not, this is not the problem! How many times do I have to tell you? I DON'T WANT TO BE SAVED!"
"Can we stop this discussion? Cause no matter what you say, WE'RE GOING TO SAVE YOU!" cried Ussop
Robin gritted her teeth, frustrated, "I'm going there to get rid of Mr. Cook and Mr. Cyborg."
"Wa…wait! You can't go out there alone!" cried Ussop as he walked behind Robin while his legs were trembling, as they were about to go and face the CP9.
Smoke leaked out of Sanji's mouth after he kicked the hell out of the stupid looking cook from the CP8 or 7 or…well, it wasn't like if he cared.
He finally met up with the CP9. He and Franky were about to fight them, when suddenly Robin and Ussop came out.
With the CP9 threatening to have Robin and Franky back, Ussop found a solution to run away. He threw a gas bomb- or "Kemuri-boshi" in front of the CP9.
"ROBIN IS OURS NOW!" cried Ussop while grabbing Robin and running as fast as he could.
"Let me go!" cried Robin desperately.
Usopp ignored her while looking at Sanji and Franky. "Good, I got Robin back!"
"Man, I never saw this coming…the run away plan, I mean," said Franky.
"They never knew that we would be using the smoke screen. It's a good thing that we're able to run away without fighting them," said Sanji, relieved. "But I don't think it will be this easy later on…"
"Why are you guys helping me…?" Hissed Robin angrily. "Why…?"
"Robin-chan," whispered Sanji, "Because you're our friend."
Franky sighed, annoyed, "Is this the way she shows her gratitude, how sincere…"
"How many times…" she trembled angrily, "HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU PEOPLE NOT TO SAVE ME! THIS IS MY BUSINESS, NOT YOURS!"
Franky groaned, "Look here missy, you're starting to piss me off. I may not know what business you got here. And you're right, it's not my business. Hell, I'm not even interested in knowing it. But I know, that you're being totally SELFISH- by keeping everything to yourself. So as a payback we're being MORE selfish by saving you whether you like it or not! Got it?"
Robin glared at him, but said nothing.
"Hey," protested Sanji, "You better watch your mouth!"
Franky ignored Sanji as he sensed another danger coming, "We better not let our guard down until these two cars are completely separated."
Just like Franky had warned, Califa finally captured their cart deck that was apart from the CP9.
In the end, everything Sanji, Usopp and Franky had worked hard on doing, had ended up in vain, a failure. The CP9 were to strong for any of them, and they finally captured Robin and Franky; Leaving Usopp and Sanji lying on the empty and unmoving cart with guilt of being such a failure in their mission.
And after a while, another train was there- with Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Chopper, Franky family, and Galley La to pick them up.
Zoro sighed with annoyance, these people actually failed to bring back Robin. He cursed silently without showing any expression, if it was him who was in that cart trying to save her, he probably would've successfully saved her.
He felt horrible when Sanji told them everything about Robin's past and how she feared the CP9. At the same time, he felt annoyed by the way she selfishly thought that they were not strong enough to save her, and he was quite pleased that Luffy had agreed with him.
Another thing for sure was the fact that he was relieved and happy to see Usopp, even though he was annoyed to why Ussop was wearing such a ridiculous mask and calling himself, 'SogeKing'. It amazed him to know that both Luffy and Chopper were stupid or gullible enough not to figure out that it was Ussop all along- NOT a stupid superhero person called SogeKing.
He sighed tiredly, everything was just so tiring and it give him a headache to think about Robin all the time. So he decided to sleep and forget about the whole rescuing problem for a couple of minutes. Only that, things didn't really go the way he wanted to be, because…
Sanji and Ussop suddenly kicked him with a loud WHAM! And in order not to steal any attention from the rest of the crew, they kicked him into another empty deck of the train.
"WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING, YOU BASTARD!" shouted Zoro angrily.
Sanji glared at him, "That's supposed to be my line, MARIMO HEAD!"
"Who are you calling bold, CURLY EYEBROW!" cried Zoro while giving Sanji a glare back.
Ussop look at the two of them nervously, "Ok, Zoro- cut it out. We're here becau-"
"Don't you dare MOCK MY LOOK WHEN YOU HAVE GREEN ALGAE ALL OVER YOUR HEAD!" shouted Sanji angrily
Ussop look at Sanji, "Uh…Sanji? Calm down…"
Zoro growled angrily, "AND DON'T YOU MOCK MY HAIR! THE LAST TIME I CHECKED, YOUR HAIRSTYLE LOOKS JUST AMAZINGLY STUPID THAT NONE OF THE GIRLS YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH- EVER, TURN OUT TO BE YOUR GIRLFRIEND! YOU DAMN WOMANIZER!"
Sighing tiredly, Usopp looked at Zoro, "Zoro, this is no time to figh-"
Sanji swore, he was boiling like a boiling kettle, "AT LEAST I'M INTERESTED IN WOMEN, UNLIKE A CERTAIN CUCUMBER HEADED SWORDSMAN THAT HAS HIS LIBIDO PLACED ON THE OTHER EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE!"
Ussop sweat-dropped, "Now Sanji, that's a bit-"
Zoro took three of his swords, "THAT'S IT YOU GODDAMN LOVE-COOK! I'LL SEND YOU TO HELL THIS INSTANT!"
Jumping in surprise, Usopp looked at Zoro, "Whoa, hey…Zoro, stop…"
"HAH! SO YOU WANT TO FIGHT? WHAT'S THE MATTER? DON'T YOU HAVE BETTER COME BACK? YOU COWARD!" shouted Sanji mockingly.
"Now that's a bit too much," Ussop trembled- he was stuck in a horrifying tension between the two angry fighters.
"Are you ready for your death?" growled Zoro dangerously.
Sanji smirked, "That's my line!"
Before they charged towards each other, Usopp took out a blackboard and ear plugs, and started to make a painful screeching noise with his fingers, by scratching the blackboard with his nails. "Sogeking Noise!"
Both Sanji and Zoro halted while covering their ears in pain. Seeing his accomplishment, Ussop stopped the noise while taking out his earplugs from his ears, "Can you people stand even one second without fighting with each other?"
"WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING?" cried Zoro and Sanji angrily towards Ussop.
"That's my line! And what worst the reason why we kicked Zoro here is not to get any attention from ANYONE, Sanji! And we're amazingly lucky that no one even bothered to do anything about this whole shouting and fighting stuff you we're doing a few seconds ago." protested Ussop in annoyance.
"Damn it!" cursed Zoro towards Usopp, "I'll get you for kicking me like that."
Ussop sighed in disbelief. "Once again…THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE MY LINE! You think I can forgive you that easily for hurting Robin?"
"Hurting…Robin…?" Zoro's anger was instantly replaced with surprise.
"Hell YES! I saw Robin's wounds everywhere around her body, and she told me that it was YOU who hurt her." Cried Ussop
"You hurt Robin-chan, didn't you?" glared Sanji with anger.
Zoro looked at the two of them with a cold look on his face. "So what if I did?"
"Why you…" Sanji was about to charge Zoro once again until Usopp grabbed him to avoid anymore fighting between the two.
"Sanji, control your temper, this is not the main reason why we wanted to talk with him." Said Ussop.
"What do you want with me anyway?" asked Zoro with an icy glare.
"We wanted to know," said Ussop, "Why you hurt Robin- when you actually like her?"
"Because I thought she betrayed our crew, and I never really liked her in the first place anyway." Said Zoro while putting his swords away.
Sanji gave a low chuckle of annoyance, "Give us a break, we KNOW that you like her. Got that? Because if you don't I wouldn't care a shit about talking with you about Robin all of this time."
"What makes you think that I actually like her?" asked Zoro with his face looking as if they were crazy.
"OBVIOUSLY!" cried both Sanji and Ussop in annoyance.
"Let Sanji record every event that SHOWS that you like and care for her." Said Ussop.
"First! The Skypia, when Eneru attacked Robin, you actually saved her from falling from the ground. Nami-san told me all about that. Second! The meeting with Aokiji, when Aokiji was about to attack her with his ice sword, you blocked his attack from hurting her. And then-" Before Sanji could even finish his sentence, Zoro cut him off.
"Because she's a woman!" protested Zoro, "It's against my principal for a man to attack a woman without a proper reason of attacking her. If she was Nami or any other woman, I would save her too!"
"Right, only that she's not Nami or any other woman. She's Robin, and to make this thing clear once and for all, Sanji told me the aftermath of the whole thing. And based on his story, you actually like her. Even more, I think that you have a CRUSH on her." Said Usopp.
Zoro glared at Ussop, "Why would I have a 'CRUSH' on her?"
Sanji sighed, "Why are we back to this topic? Just make up your mind if you really like…no make that lover her. Because she told you that she loved you. And I don't want to see her to receive no answer from you just because of your fucking ego!"
"What exactly do you want me to do?" asked Zoro in annoyance
"Tell her about your true feelings!" answered Usopp.
"What true feelings? Look here, you two- unlike that cook, I don't do this 'love' or any mushy-mushy bullshit that cook always talks about." Growled Zoro.
"Don't call 'love bullshit', you marimo, love is a beautiful thing every person could ever have in this whole world." Protested Sanji.
Usopp glared at Zoro, "If you didn't tell Robin straight away about your true feelings towards her…" he then smirked evilly, "I'll…TURN ON THE CONVERSATION BETWEEN YOU AND ROBIN ON THE PHONE SNAIL FOR EVERYONE TO HEAR ON THIS TRAIN!"
"WHAT?" Zoro looked at Ussop in horror, "You recorded WHAT?"
"I was there you know, and I heard EVERYTHING you guys were talking about. And my favourite part was the last five sentences which she repeated over and over again to you," chuckled Usopp evilly.
Zoro gave deadly glares to him while blushing slightly to the memory of what she told him over and over again on the last five sentences, "GIVE IT TO ME!"
"Hahaha, no way man," laughed Ussop, "And are you blushing? I should have had my picture dial with me right now."
Sanji looked at Ussop, "What are the last five sentences?"
Usopp then answered while looking for Zoro's reaction. "Oh, they are…"
"SHUT UP!" cried Zoro, "Why are you two pushing me into doing something impossible? And what worse, you're actually BLACKMAILING me?"
"It's not impossible!" said Ussop, "You saw Sanji do that all the time."
"Don't judge me by his standard," glared Zoro.
Sanji ignored Zoro's last remark. "What's so hard about telling a beautiful woman your true feelings? A true man should be honest to his own feelings."
Zoro groaned in frustration, "That's it! I'm outta here!" he walked toward the door.
"Wait we're not finished!" cried Usopp.
"We are FINISHED, and END OF DISCUSSION!" growled Zoro, "And two things you need to know. First, if anyone hears that conversation inside that voice dial, I will personally destroy all of your dials. Second, I am BEING HONEST TO MY OWN FEELINGS! AND WHAT I'M FEELING RIGHT NOW IS CONFUSION! YOU GOT THAT!"
Zoro opened the door to get out of the deck and slammed the door shut- with a loud WHAM!
Sanji took out a cigarette and lit it while glancing at the door. "Tell me something, what does Robin see inside that man?"
"Hm…his ego probably, maybe she's into men with high ego and amazing stubbornness." Answered Ussop.
Sanji and Ussop sighed in disbelief. How a person, other than their captain, could possibly have such stubbornness? It's an amazing thing that those kind of people exist.
