Title: Their Heirs to the Legacy

Each member of Straw Hat crew had finally reached their goals and now they continue with their adventure…however, Marines continue to plot against them…making sure they would meet their doom…and so, they have come to create what was feared most with the help of another Archeologist…

Pairings: Zoro & Robin, Luffy & Vivi, Sanji & Nami, Usopp & Kaya

Disclaimer: I do not own One Piece and the songs inserted…

The straw hat pirates stood on the deck of Thousand Sunny with wide grin on their faces…who wouldn't feel happy?

After three years of sailing into the vast sea…after meeting different kinds of people…fighting different group of enemies…they finally realized all their dreams…All Blue, Medicines, promises, Lost Fathers, Rio Poneglyph Greatest Swordsman and Pirate King.

"Yosh! Kanpai!!!" the captain shouted with a wide grin on his face as he held his cup of ale upwards and followed by the others…cups clanked and blended with the skeleton's music as he played the violin.

"So, what do we do now?" Robin asked while sipping her tea. The rest of the group looked at each other for a moment.

"That's something to ponder on," Usopp said as he rubbed his jaw in an act like he was thinking deeply about it.

"What do you mean what do we do now? We continue sailing of course," Brooke joined the conversation and stopped playing.

"Afro-man is right," Franky agreed as he drank another cup.

"You know," Luffy finally spoke after eating all the food he could grab from his friends.

"Huh?" they all looked at him as he rubbed his stomach.

"I still need meat," Luffy finished that made the rest dropped on the floor. They were thinking he was to suggest something new but all the while, he was thinking of food…that's Luffy alright…

"You've eaten everything?!!!" Nami screamed when they finally realized that their plates were all emptied in just a second…just how much food can the rubber man take?

Luffy looked at her innocently then shrugged. "I'm really hungry after the fight with the marines a while ago," he groused and looked up to see a bird flying just above them. A wide grin broke his lips and his arms stretched out to catch it. "Sanji, I caught us some food."

What he received was a kick on the head by the redhead. "Baka!!!! That is a seagull," she hissed and her gaze dropped on the pile of papers the fowl dropped on their ship.

"Let's see what we got here," Robin said and unbound the pile of papers and read whatever it is. "Hmm…it would seem the Pirate King would be a greater threat now than his Revolutionary Father eh?"

"What did it say there Robin?" Nami asked and went near the archeologist and her eyes widened at the new bounty for Luffy.

Robin tossed the paper on the floor for everyone to see and they all laughed out.

Luffy has a bounty of 25,000,000,000 beli followed by the swordsman whose bounty is 5,000,000,000 beli short of that of the captain. 20 and 25 huh?

The two has a bounty close to each other. Hmm…it would seem the bounty decided already the rank of strongest among the crew. Is it always that the captain and the first mate would be on top? Maybe that is the case…anyhow….Sanji has a bounty of 11 billion beli, Robin with 10,500,000,000 beli.

The four of them proved to be the most dangerous…it started with Robin being a marked woman at the age of eight, with 79 million beli over her head…twenty years later, Straw Hat Luffy decided to gather crew members and he started with the Pirate Hunter, Roronoa Zoro.

Luffy got his first bounty after defeating Arlong, the mermen who resides in Nami's hometown. He started with 30,000,000 beli. The bounty increased when they fought against Baroque Works and he defeated Crocodile. It increased by 70 making it 100.

That is also where Zoro became a marked man with a bounty of 60,000,000 beli defeating Das Bones, the assassin who was made of steel.

Sanji received his bounty after the Enies Lobby incident where they all saved Robin from the marines…

Robin shook her head. The three alone, Luffy, Zoro and Sanji would make a formidable enemy for the Marines…what more with all the crew beating most of the Shichibukai already? With all of the nine's bounties combined, every pirate would think twice of crossing them.

"So, back to what we were talking about, Captain, what are your plans now?"

There was a wistful look on his face before his face brightened again with the idea that just popped out in his simple mind. His arms stretched out then wrapped around Zoro and Sanji's necks.

"I'm going to find myself a Pirate Queen."

Their jaws dropped on the floor, literally and figuratively, upon hearing the remark coming from the mouth of the man whom they never thought would think of such thing.

"P-P-Pirate Q-Q-Q-Queen?" Nami whispered and held Robin's arm as if terrified at the very idea of it. Luffy finding himself a wife? The idea is just absurd for her.

"Are you kidding me Luffy?" Zoro asked in surprised. A pirate king deciding to settle down? It's just hard to digest the idea into his mind…

Sanji lit his cigarette and looked at Luffy for a couple of minutes before finally bursting into laughter. "Luffy, that's something you can't seriously do, can you?"

Luffy frowned at them all. Was there something wrong with what he just said? He had become the Pirate King and had found One Piece, what's wrong with finding himself a person who would become Pirate Queen?

"What's funny?" he asked when Franky, Brooke, Usopp and Chopper joined Sanji's laugh.

Zoro stood up, although disbelieving, he cast Luffy a look that say's he's in it again. He knew it is absurd for their captain who, three years ago, was just a kid at seventeen and now, a Pirate King at twenty.

Being the First Mate, being the captain's second, he understood Luffy more than anyone else. Besides, what Luffy decides, he pushed through with it.

So granted that he is serious in finding a wife, the question would remain: Who would become the Pirate Queen? Surely, it isn't as easy as finding a nakama. He thought he already has an idea of who that person is.

"I'm thinking of going back to the village where I came from," Zoro spoke amidst the laughter and he was glad no one heard him because he didn't expect to speak aloud his decision. He left the group and went inside the cabin to get his whetstone.
