"Robin." Robin replied.

"Cool! Welcome to our school!" the boy said loudly, still smiling. "Hey everyone!" he exclaimed greeting everyone else. Everyone replied with a simple "Hey Luffy". Robin couldn't help but notice that everyone was smiling, even the teacher. The boy's prescence seem to lift the room. His smile was contagious.

"Sorry, I'm late Shanks!" the boy said turning to the teacher. "I overslept."

"No problem Luffy," the teacher chuckled, "I've gotten used to it."

Luffy sat down in the middle table at the back, behind Nami and Robin and next to Zoro and Sanji. He scrunched up his face, as if trying to remember something, before gasping and reaching into his school bag to retrieve a Straw hat. "Much better," He said, grinning. Everyone except Robin chuckled.

"Right looks like everyones here," Mr Shanks said aloud. He then turned to Robin and said, "Now, it's form time. We have form time every day, and it's just half an hour which you spend with your form class, to just talk and stuff. It's not a serious lesson."

Robin nodded.

"Hey Sanji, do you have any food?" Luffy asked excitedly.

"No." Sanji replied shortly. "Jeez Luffy, show some self restraint."

"So Robin," Nami asked, trying to change the subject, "What was your old school like?"

"It was ok," Robin began, "But I'm pretty sure I like this place better," she finished with a smile.


The rest of form time passed uneventfully. Robin quickly picked up the various personalities of her new classmates.

"First lesson: Maths," Robin thought in her head. She knew she had been put into higher ability classes for Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics due to her grades at her previous school.

"Hey Robin!"

Robin turned around, and saw Nami, Usopp and Chopper walking towards her.

"You're in this class?" Robin asked, honestly surprised.

"Yep!" Nami answered. "Oh, there's the teacher!"

A tall man with piercing eyes walked towards them. "Are you Miss Nico?" he asked Robin.

"Yes sir"

"I'm mr Mikhawk. Go in, sit wherever you like. I'll get you and exercise book and a text book."


Robin found maths boring. She found that she already knew the things that they were teaching due to her reading outside of classes.

Next, was break. After the lesson, She, Nami, Chopper and Usopp were walking through the corridors, when Chopper bumped into a big guy with black hair and a very pointy nose.

"Oy, watch where you're going!" he shouted very harshly to the terrified chopper, who nodded and hid behind Usopp. Robin noticed visible anger on Nami's face.

She looked at Usopp, who whispered, "Thats Arlong, don't mess with him."

Robin inferred from this that this Arlong guy was the school bully. She was snapped out of her thoughts when Arlong said something else.

"Hey beautiful, long time no see," he said looking at Nami.

"Just leave me alone Arlong."

"Or what?" Arlong said, with threat laced in his voice.

"Lets go guys," Nami said, with firmness in her voice. The 4 of them quickly hurried away.

Robin, Nami, Usopp and Chopper approached the table where Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, Franky and Brook were sitting. Luffy appeared to be currently telling the guys a story about something judging by his hand gestures, while Franky and Brook were laughing and Zoro and Sanji were arguing about something. Luffy was the first to notice them.

"Hey Guys!" he shouted, gesturing furiously towards the table, despite the fact that we were already heading there.

"Namiiiiii, Robinnnnnn!" Sanji sang, leaving his argument with Zoro, "I hope you both had a fantastic..."

"Shut up Sanji!" Nami yelled harshly. Everyone was suddenly silent.

"Nami...," Sanji began.

Luffy and Zoro exchanged a knowing glance, while Franky and Brook looked puzzled.

In the end, break was quite awkward.


After break, Everyone had P.E., which was done seperately. Boys in one class and girls in the other. However the boys were playing soccer on the soccer pitch, next to the astro-turf where the girls were playing hockey. Robin didn't really play much hockey, and just hung back in defence where she didn't really do anything. Because of this, she began to watch the boys' soccer match which was quite entertaining.

"That was offside Moss-head!"

"Shut up love cook. How would you know, you were too busy watching the girls' hockey match you pervert!"

"I'm surprised you even know that word, moss for brains!"

"You wanna fight?"

"Bring it!"

"No luffy you can't punch the ball into the back of the net," Usopp said for at least the fifth time.

"Why not?"

"Because those are the rules."


5 minutes later the conversation was repeated.


After P.E. was lunch. The 9 got together, with Nami back to normal. After eating together, They headed outside, where Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, Brook and Franky began to play soccer (with Luffy being forced to be goalkeeper for obvious reasons). Zoro and Sanji were as competitive as ever, with both trying to outscore the other, but both ultimately ending up with 47 goals apiece.

After lunch was english, the last lesson of the day. Robin was in the same class as Luffy, Zoro and Nami for English. The teacher was a tough looking guy called Mr Smoker, who seemed to greatly dislike Luffy, and repeatedly asked Luffy questions, and also getting him to read out his work to the class. Robin suspected that this dislike stemmed from the fact that Luffy insisted on calling him "Smokey", despite Mr Smoker repeatedly telling him to call him "Sir".


Robin reached home and opened the door. Sitting in the Living room was her mother, Nico Olivia.

"Hey sweetie, how was your day at school?", Olivia asked.

"Really good actually."

"Make any friends?" Olivia asked more in hope than anticipation.

"I did. 8 actually," Robin said, ignoring the look of shock on her mother's face as she continued towards her bedroom.
