A/N: Haha well this is my second attempt at submitting this (Something went very wrong the first time) I hope you like it. Also please let me know what you think by reviewing =) Enjoy. PS: The title is a play on the title 'Romance Dawn' Which is the short story that lead to the creation of one piece, thought it would be cool. =p

Twenty years have passed since Monkey D. Luffy and his pirate crew found the magisterial treasure One Piece.

Monkey D. Luffy has been executed, but as he knelt, in the place his predecessor had before him, he said with a wide smile, "My treasure is yours for the taking, but you'll have to find it first; I left everything I own in One Piece."

Since then enthusiastic Adventurers of all race colour and creed travel the oceans once again, searching for the most Glorious treasure imaginable.


"Are you Captain Ayanne?" The 6"1 boy stood with a smile on his face, his violate eyes twinkling in the sunlight.

"No kid, I'm not but I am the man who is gonna stop you from seeing him!" the man's jaw dropped as he looked up to see the boy had gone. The boy had, in fact, just strolled past him mid sentence and headed towards the large entrance.

"Who the hell do you think you are kid!?" the man shouted darting in front of the boy and towering over him in an imposing fashion.

The boy looked up at the brown haired man's middle-aged, scarred, face, which was now turning a bright shade of scarlet as the anger at the child's insolence washed over him. The Boy's own medium length spiky blue hair gently flowed in the breeze as he fed a cookie to, what appeared to be, a silver lizard which opened a sleepy eye to accept its snack only to fall back into its previous slumber.

"Oh, I'm sorry I thought I'd mentioned it." The boy started with a big grin, "I'm Van, Van Niko, and I am here to see Captain Ayanne so if you could just move out the way..." the large man looked unimpressed.

"Get lost kid the captains not taking any visitors, you ain't coming past." He chuckled to himself in a condescending manner. Van walked past him mid sentence once again, a vein erupted in his temple as his face glowed with rage. "You damned brat!" the man roared as he drew his six swords (three in each hand) and lunged at the blue haired teen.

Van glanced back and threw out an arm, "Mik!" he yelled excitedly, the sleeping lizard on his shoulder instantly flashed open its eyes.

Inside the building the 'Carbon Pirates' had amassed around the front door, as they had heard shouting and the unsheathing of weaponry a minute or so before. Garu Shinji was their best swordsman so it shouldn't be an issue, but better to be safe than sorry.

Suddenly the door exploded into a million tiny pieces as Garu the brown haired master swordsman blasted through it, blowing away the pirates surrounding the entrance, before bouncing across the hard stone floor unconscious.

Through the smoke a blue haired silhouette emerged, stepping over the bodies of the carbon pirates, a sleeping lizard on his shoulder. Van grinned innocently, his left hand running through his cobalt hair.

"Hey, is Captain Ayanne here?"
