Last chapter and it's a long one. I can't thank everyone enough that reviewed. Since this is the last chapter, I'm actually putting in a normal disclaimer. Also, I looked online for Luffy's attacks, so if I got any of them wrong, I'm sorry.

Disclaimer: I own none of the characters in this story, except for Jessica, the elves, and Zorde.

One Piece Earth

Chapter 21

Let's Go Out With a Bang!

"What in hell are you here for, Kuro?" Jessica demanded clenching her fists.

"Don't tell me that you're surprised by my betrayal." he chuckled as he pushed up his glasses. He had his cat claws on.

"Why did you push me into the portal?"

"Because I was going to live in your world. I want to forget about my pirate life and I can't do that if you all know about it."

"So you purposely went through the portal." Robin commented.

"I heard that Zorde could open portals, so I made a deal with him."

"Deal?" Jessica inquired.

"He sends me to your world, I spy on the Straw Hats and make sure they don't get back."

"Enough talk." Zoro said pulling out his swords. "I didn't get to fight you last time."

Usopp, was a coward, but when it came to Kuro, he would gladly jump into the fray. However, he was stopped by Luffy. "Zoro doesn't need help." the captain said.

Kuro disappeared and there was a flash of metal. He had used his stealth walk. Zoro showed no sign of nervousness and blocked several of Kuro's attacks. Suddenly, the swordsman's shirt was torn and there was blood pouring from his side. The former captain performed another stealth walk. Zoro swung his sword, giving the appearance that he was hitting air. A few seconds later, Kuro reappeared with a gash in his shoulder. He stepped back and began slouching.

"Oh shit." Jessica thought. She looked and saw that Nami and Usopp had had the same thought.

"Out of the Bag Attack!" The Straw Hats (except for Luffy) pressed themselves against the wall as claw marks began appearing everywhere. Zoro crossed his swords and lunged forward.

"Three Thousand Worlds!"

There was a yell and then Kuro was lying in a pool of blood.

"That was so cool!" Luffy and Jessica said in unison.

"Shall we go?" the swordsman asked.

"Wait." The college student went over to Kuro and punched him in the face. "Damn cat."

The group finally made it to the top floor of the fortress. The door to Zorde loomed ahead of them. Usopp's knees started knocking together. "I left something in the dungeon." As he was inching away, he was stopped by Sanji. Luffy fixed his hat and then pushed the doors open. There to greet them were two men.

"I knew Kuro was useless." one of them said angrily.

"We've been expecting you." the other one said. "We are Zorde's lieutenants. I am Durin and this is Razel."

"Wait, I've never seen you three before!" Razel pointed to Chopper, Ace, and Robin.

"Really? We've been hiding in the fortress for weeks." Robin said with a smirk on her face.

"What?" Razel cried.

"Calm down Razel, you're making a fool out of yourself. You'll have to excuse him, he has a very bad temper."

"Where are the elves at?" Sanji demanded.

"They're Zorde's guests." Razel chuckled.

"You'll have to get through us to see them." Durin drew his sword.

"I'm going after Zorde." Luffy said.

"We should split up." Jessica suggested.

"Why?" Nami inquired.

"Not all of the crew is needed to beat two guys, right? So some can stay here, and the rest can go with Luffy."

"I'm going with you and Luffy. There may be a lot of treasure to find."

"I'm coming to!" Chopper said.

Luffy, Nami, Jessica, and Chopper ran down the hall with the faint sounds of battle falling behind.

The hallway was long with no windows or doors. At the far end a light could be seen. The college student's heart was pounding. She never thought she would have to worry about dying until later on in her life. "If the Straw Hats deal with it, then I can deal with it." she thought.

The room at the end of the tunnel was bright. When their eyes had adjusted, they saw Elle chained to the wall.

"Where are the other two elves?" Chopper asked.

"Dead." the female elf replied quietly.

"Ah, we meet again Monkey D. Luffy." Out of the shadows came another elf with purple braided hair and expensive looking clothes. In his hand was a staff.

"No wonder why he wants to be called Zorde, he looks ridiculous." Jessica thought.

"Zorde, I'm here to clobber you." the Straw Hat captain said as he cracked his knuckles. He took off his hat and gave it to Nami. "Gomu Gomu no Rocket!" He launched himself at the elf, but he easily dodged it. "Gomu Gomu no Pistol!" Zorde's eyes widened as Luffy's fist connected with his face.

"I hadn't anticipated that you'd be able to attack so quickly." the elf commented while spitting out a small amount of blood.

While Luffy and Zorde were battling, Jessica and Chopper tried freeing Elle while Nami looked for treasure.

"Damn, what is up with these chains?" The college student had tried yanking and hitting them.

"You won't be able to do anything while Zorde still has the staff." Elle said.

When they turned around Zorde had constricted Luffy with black bands. "Heh, you're going to have to do better than that." The captain freed himself from his bonds. "Gomu Gomu no Ono!" This time instead of moving, the elf raised the staff and a shield appeared, blocking the attack.

"He doesn't even have to say anything!" Chopper exclaimed.

"While he has that staff there's no need for him to." Elle said. "The spells it performs depends on the thoughts of a person."

At that moment, the rest of the Straw Hats came.

"I've done it! I defeated Zorde's lieutenants!" Usopp shouted.

"Tres Fleur!" Three arms grabbed Zorde to get the staff from him.

"Don't interrupt!" he yelled. Before the staff was all of the way out of his hand it emitted a blue charge which subdued the Straw Hats.

Luffy continued attacking him, but it had no effect. The elf kept creating a shield.

"Are you tired?" Zorde asked with mock concern.

A huge grin appeared on Luffy's face. "Nope. Gomu Gomu no Storm!" The punch was so powerful, it shattered the shield. Zorde was sent high into the air, dropping his staff. The cage and shackles disappeared. The Straw Hat captain then launched himself in the air and showered his opponent with punches. The elf fell to the ground in a heap.

"That attack is even more awesome seeing it close up!" Jessica exclaimed.

The staff was given to Elle, who secured Zorde. "Now the fortress must be destroyed." she said.

After everyone had gotten out, Elle held the staff in the air. Pale blue energy came out and went into the air. It then came down and disintegrated the structure.

"Thank you for helping me. You've saved this world and possibly other worlds from destruction. Now the only thing left to do is send you home, Jessica."

The college student had known that this day would come, but she had no idea that she would feel so sad. She also knew that she would most likely never see the Straw Hats ever again.

"Before I go." her voice cracked with emotion. "I just want to say that this has been the greatest experience in my life. I'll miss you all very much, my nakama."

Neither her nor the Straw Hats tried to hug, they just sad all goodbye in their own way.

"Are you ready?" Elle questioned.

"Yeah." A pulsating glow appeared around her. "Goodbye, Straw Hats." There was a flash and she was gone.

When she got back to Earth, she found that she had been gone for a few days, but everyone dismissed it as her being ill. Her apartment was a mess, but she did not care. The fact that she could personally call the Straw Hat Pirates her nakama would be something that would always make her smile.
