A/N: Alrighty people! This is the rewrite/edit of chapter one! Call me whatcha like, but dammit this has to be done… for personal reasons, I guess. :/ So, uh, re-enjoy, I guess? :)
Original Text: Okay my boredom has over taken me while I have writers block on my other stories sooooooo... I write this. Please don't hate me I'll have the others written soon but I'm going to need ideas!!
Disclaimer- I don't own One Piece. But man how I wish I did.
Zoro sighed. I wish there was something to do around here. He looked around again, heaving a sigh. "Why do I have to be cooped up inside all the time?" he asked no one in particular. The ticking of the clock in the corner was sounding more and more like a time bomb.
He was bored out of his mind. How many times had he wished he could go outside and meet people? Not the servants his parents kept giving him, but common, normal, ordinary people?
"Please Master Zoro don't look so depressed. If there is anything I could do for you I would humbly oblige." The servant bowed, when did he get in here? Zoro really hated how sneaky this man was.
"Yeah you can do something for me, Osworth."
"You can... GET OUT OF MY SIGHT!" Zoro threw the closest object at the man (which happened to be a lamp) and slammed the door when he was gone. "Damn them. Why won't they just leave me the hell alone? What did I do to deserve this?? Is it because I'm heir to my father's company, to the family name, to our fortune? What if I don't want it? What will they do then? …God I hate this place." Zoro sat against the wall and put his head in his hands and remained like that for hours.
"Ugh, lemme go!"
"Now why would I do that?" Sanji looked at the man who was holding his arm in a death grip. The man was huge, and apparently had taken a liking to him.
"Just do it you pervert. I have no interest in you whatsoever!" Sanji tried to yank his arm free but to no avail. Damn this guy is strong. What the hell am I supposed to do now? What a situation to be in.
"Come on, your just so cute! Don't spoil things for me." The man tried to pull Sanji into his car, but Sanji was able to keep his ground for the moment. Argh. This idiot is going to make me late!
"SANJI!" Sanji looked around to see Luffy running for him at what looked to be 90mph.
"Oi! A little help here, Luffy-brain!"
"Huh?" Luffy stopped a few feet away and looked at the man who was 'attempting' to kidnap Sanji, "Geez. Can't you go one day without freaks like this trying to be your friend?" Sanji never really explained to Luffy why people wouldn't leave him alone, so Luffy just made up his own reason for it in that horribly underdeveloped place that was his mind.
"Oh just help me out. I'm gunna be late!" Sanji yanked again, growling angrily at the mammoth man.
"Why don't you just give up? What do you hope your lanky friend over there can do? Huh?"
Luffy socked the guy right in the face, giving no warning at all. The man fell straight to the ground and lost his grip on Sanji.
"Woah. Down in one shot. Not as tough as he thought huh Sanji?" Luffy grinned
"Thanks Luff I owe you dinner." Sanji ran off. Oh great. Why did I say that? He's going to eat me out of house and home.
Sanji ran into a large building. It was supposed to be some kind of large family cooperation. This was where he was planning on working, and he couldn't afford to be late for the interview.
As he got in the building he fixed his shirt and tie. They had told him to dress casually, but he felt out of place, everyone here had on a full suit. Lovely... What if I got the message wrong and it was don't dress casually? He shook his head. Gotta stop second guessing myself, I need to look confident.
He went up to the receptionist, she had one of those looks that says 'Hello how can I help y--- oh look a light bulb' and stares off into space. He quickly told her about his appointment and she checked in her black book of names for his appointment.
"Yep it's riiiiiiight here!" She pointed at his name like she had never seen ink on paper before, "yep Mr. Nakano will see you shortly. Please wait over there."
Sanji went into the waiting room. He was about to pull out a cigarette when he saw a no smoking sign. Damn them. It seemed that everywhere was smoke-free nowadays.
"Sanji, Mr. Nakano will see you now." The receptionist said airily.
"Thank you." He walked coolly into the next room. There was a man sitting behind a desk in the typical large leather chair. Very businesslike.
"Ah, Sanji. Please have a seat. It's good to see you again," he smiled.
"That's good news."
"I assume you know about your placement in this company?" Mr. Nakano twirled a pen in his fingers.
"Um no, actually I don't."
"Oh really? Well that's okay. You are going to live with my nephew."
"WHAT!" Sanji almost fell out of his chair. "Y-your nephew?"
"Yes. He is the heir to this company, but it seems that he is lonely and needs company but won't accept any of the servants that his parents send him. Such a stubborn boy."
Woah... servants? How could someone complain about that? Sanji leaned into the chair, seriously considering this. It doesn't sound that bad... But living with a guy? That just seems really awkward.
Mr. Nakano seemed to read Sanji's mind. "You would get separate rooms. He lives in a mansion after all. And you will be paid handsomely."
"What's the catch?" Sanji said before he could stop himself.
"Ah ha ha! I like the way you think! Well the catch is, is that you have to somehow convince my dear nephew to take over the family business. He seems reluctant."
Convince him to take over? How could you not want to? This guy sounds crazy. Sanji nodded slowly and shook Mr. Nakano's hand, sealing the deal. This had so better be worth it.
When Sanji got home he found Luffy standing in front of his apartment door.
"Oi! What happened to the spare key I gave you Luff?" Luffy just grinned.
"I got a hole in my pocket! See look!" Luffy put his hand in his pocket and wiggled his finger though a hole that was in his shorts. Sanji sighed. "Ain't it spiffy lookin'? Holes are supposed to be the latest fad."
"Well it ain't a good fad if it makes ya lose your keys monkey." Sanji unlocked the door and went inside with Luffy right behind him. "Well, I suppose I should ask you what you want to eat."
"Anything you cook is fine! Your meals are always the best!" Luffy began jumping up and down in excitement. Sanji couldn't help but grin. He did take extreme pride in his cooking skills.
"Okay then, how about mac & cheese? That's all I got right now."
"Okay! Like I said, anything is fine with me!" Luffy sat on Sanji's couch and flipped on the T.V.
"Right." Sanji began making the mac & cheese for Luffy. Man, I'm lucky I have six boxes of this stuff. Once everything was cooking he joined Luffy on the couch. He was watching cartoons. Figures.
Sanji got tired of the cartoons really fast, but he was more annoyed with Luffy's out of key singing along with the theme song. He got up and decided to stir the noodles. "Three stirs clockwise, and one counter clockwise. Repeat." Sanji mumbled to himself.
"Wow Sanji! You're really a picky cooker." Sanji didn't know when Luffy got behind him but he had been too concentrated on the pot of noodles to be frightened.
"That makes no sense dummy. It's supposed to be a picky eater, not cooker." Luffy just shrugged. He went back to the T.V.
"Oh, hey! How was that interview thingie? Did you get your job?"
"Hn? Oh yeah. I have to go live at a mansion trying to convince a heir to listen to his parents, basically."
"Wow! Sounds like babysitting to me." Luffy took off his hat and scratched his head.
"Yeah that's what I thought at first but you should check out the pay check. There are so many zeros it looks like it says ooooo!" Sanji did a little dance and put the finishing touches on their dinner. "Here ya go! Dinner is served!"
"Oh boy! It looks delicious!" Luffy dug into his share before Sanji had even finished placing the plate down.
"Holy cow Luffy! You need to chew! Come on at least taste it won't you?" Sanji gave up as Luffy kept shoveling food into his mouth. "I'm not going to save you if you choke." He said while sitting down, eating his share.
"Ifs so mummy!!" Luffy said with a mouthful. He swallowed. "Oh yeah, when do you start Sanji?"
"Huh? Oh I start tomorrow afternoon."
"Want me to help you pack?"
"Sure thing no problem! You made me dinner! So now I hafta repay you!"
"Uhh, Luff I was trying to repay you. You don't--" Luffy just cocked his head to the side in confusion. "Oh never mind. I would really appreciate the help monkey-brain."
Sanji got up and started to clear the table. Tomorrow was going to be one hell of a day.
Soooooooo. What did you think??? Is it okay? It's just another idea that smacked me in the back of the head one morning so please review. But be kind I don't take criticism well!! Joking! Say what you will...
A/N: After some super fixes… I remember now that the first couple of chapters were actually written using the Notepad program… So, in other words… No spell check. :/
