I just haven't seen this narrator used before – so I thought I'd give it a go. After all, it is one of the most important parts of One Piece :3

Straw Tale

It's so nice up here. I'm happiest when we're just like this, just sitting quietly. It certainly beats bumping about on his neck when he's jumping around and the fights! Don't get me started on those, just thinking about the amount of times I've been skewered and stabbed makes me quiver. I've still got the stitches to prove it you know.

So, does that mean I don't like being with him? Not for a second! My last owner was nice enough you know, said I was his favourite hat once, that I kept the sun off his face and out of his eyes and besides, I went well with his hair. I keep getting told I'll have to go back to that owner, but to be honest…I really don't want to. I want to stay with this owner I've got now…forever.

It's not so good out here now; the wind's picking up a bit, I really don't like this…Woah! Phew, it's okay. His hand is there, warm and comforting, holding me on tightly. See why I want to stay with him? Who else in my position is treated with so much care and affection? Or as famous as I am!

Just you wait. I may just be a plain old strawhat now, but one day I'll be the pirate king's crown.
