Summary: The Straw Hats each wake up in a plain white room wearing nothing but hospital gowns and a prized possession is taken from each of them. Now, their main goal is to find their stuff, find each other, and escape. But what happens when escaping is the least of their problems?
This is post-time skip, and I would say that this would take place after Punk Hazard.. only I have no idea how Punk Hazard ends. The manga is currently on chapter 675 and it gives no hints on how its ending. I don't know whether they get a new nakama or not, so I'm just going with whats currently happening.
This story was inspired by the G-8 arc, Strong World, and the second One Piece Movie. I was also inspired by the new One Piece movie Z. Most evilest villain they'll ever face yet? I took that and made it into my own story. Enjoy [:
"Everything has been put into file. Shall we depose of the pirates like we always have?"
"All but one. Make sure she's fully awake by this afternoon. If she tries to escape, make sure to use what ever means necessary to make her stay. You can eliminate the rest. Just make sure to put their ashes to good use."
The subordinate nodded then left the room. He closed the door behind him, making the room inside go dark aside from the light coming from the window. Another figure sat on the desk, dangling her legs without a care in the world. She leaned back and faced the vice admiral upside down.
"Father, aren't you going a bit overboard this time?"
The vice admiral stared out his window intently, not removing his eyes to face his daughter.
"There's no such thing as going overboard when it comes to justice. A notorious crew like them is history and only history."
"Mai, I need you to check the ships to see if they're ready for departure."
"The ships don't leave until tomorrow. Everything will be settled tonight."
"Mai, I gave you a command."
Mai sighed and jumped off the desk. She placed her sword sheathe securely on her belt and headed for the door. Like always, disobeying her father's commands could lead to no meal for lunch. It was always how she lived her life, and thus, it still continues.
"As you wish, Vice Admiral Sega."
"Nojiko?" Nami watched as her sister continued to walk as if she didn't hear her, which was odd since they weren't that far apart. "Nojiko!"
The room was endless and white. Calling it a room might be an understatement. It was more like they were in a wide open area, and in it was just the two of them. Afraid and confused, Nami ran after her sister. When she was close enough, she reached out her hand to grab her arm, but she suddenly felt their distance growing apart again. She desperately tried to reach for her.
"Nojiko! Where are you going?" yelled Nami. Nojiko turned around and smiled innocently. Nami furrowed her brows. She was acting strange.
"Don't worry, Nami. I'll tell Belle-mere you said hi."
"Belle- What do you mean? Where are you-"
"Wai.. Wait! Nojiko!"
Nojiko continued to walk away, leaving a puzzled Nami behind.
Nami gasped and opened her eyes. She stared at the ceiling as she panted. It was just a dream. Only a dream, and yet it felt so real.
Nami sat up, then froze. She looked up and realized she wasn't on her own bed in the Sunny. She was in a plain white room with nothing but a chair in the corner and the bed she was just sleeping on. She looked down and saw that her clothes were replaced with a hospital gown. Her arms were very boney and it looked like her skin color was fading.
She quickly ran for the only barred window and looked outside. From the fact that straight ahead of her was nothing but sky, it looked like she was on a highest floor. The area was completely surrounded by a jungle.
Nami cut herself off when she looked towards the end of the island. It was nothing but fog. She could hardly see the ocean. Nami stumbled back to the bed and sat down while holding her head. She didn't remember getting here. She didn't remember anything. The last thing she remembered was going to bed after going through another one of the New World's rough storms.
She almost forgot, where is everybody? Had they been kidnapped and separated? By bounty hunters or Marines, either way, this was not good. She had to find everyone and get out of here as soon as possible. There was no telling what they'll go through or went through here.
Nami ran for the door then realized something important was missing. Her clothes, her log pose and her clima tact, they were all missing. She'll be defenseless once she leaves this room, and there was no way of escaping the island without a log pose. Nami bit her lip. She had to risk it.
She quietly opened the door slightly and peeked outside. She used her senses to detect any footsteps coming her way. It was completely empty. She quietly stepped out and closed the door behind her. She looked left and right. The hallway stretched on far endlessly. There was nothing but plain white doors on the walls and windows that looked out towards the jungle. This could be harder than she thought.
Zoro ran through the endless hallway without caring whether anybody spotted him or not. Not only did he wake up with no memories of even ending up in this place, but all his swords are missing. He won't leave the island without them. Not only that, but the crew is missing.
"Tch. Why are those idiots getting lost at a time like this?"
Aside from his crew missing, the fact that he couldn't remember anything at all set him on the edge. It was a disgrace as a swordsman. He must've been completely out of it if he were to lose all three of his swords.
The guards chased Nico Robin as she ran to find an escape route out of this place.
"Stop! You're not getting out of here!" yelled one of the guards. Another guard raised his pistol and shot at her. It missed her arm by an inch. Robin made a hard right. The guards nearly missed it, but followed her lead. They stopped when they realized she was no where to be found. This hallway held no doors to escape into, yet she was gone.
"What should we do?"
"Find her! She couldn't have gotten far."
The guards continued running down the hallway Robin supposedly disappeared into. Little did they know, the hallway was separated by another wall leading towards another direction. Robin slid down the wall when the coast was clear. She panted as she tried to catch her breath. She could've fought back and attack, but for some reason, it was like her energy was completely drained out of her. As of now, she can only sprout little body parts such as eyes, mouths, and ears. Until she regains her strength, she'll have to keep on running. Out of the twenty two years of running, she didn't think she'd be caught so easily.
"What happened?" Usopp asked himself. As soon as he woke up, he felt dizzy and weak. His skin color isn't as tan as it used to be, and his muscles he trained so hard for aren't as big as they used to be. Furthermore, he couldn't remember anything. To make matters worse, his bag and kuro kabuto are gone. He gasped when he heard footsteps nearing the door. He quickly lied back down and pretended to sleep. He heard the door open and close all in one. He also heard a few pants coming from his new company. Usopp remained still, but under the blanket, he began to shake in fear. He was completely wide open.
"Oi, Usopp, you're not dead, are you?"
Usopp opened his eyes at that familiar voice. He quickly shot up with relief.
"Shh," Sanji walked closer. Usopp noticed he wore the same hospital gown he was wearing. He wasn't looking too good either. So, he wasn't the only one in the crew in this situation.
"What are you doing here? What happened to us?"
"That's what I want to know. Do you remember anything?"
"No.. It's strange. But anyway, how'd you find me?"
"I didn't mean to. I heard some guards coming so I ran into the nearest room. I thought it might've held Nami-san or Robin-chan."
Usopp stared at him with half lidded eyes. Of course, the cook only ever cared about the girls.
"Anyway, we need to get out of here and find the others," said Sanji.
"A-Ah," Usopp removed the blanket off of him and moved to the side of the bed. "But wait, where's our stuff?"
"No idea. I've been focused on looking for everyone."
"We need to find our stuff-"
"As of our current situation, finding our stuff isn't all that important. We need to find the crew to see if they're here as well."
"We wouldn't have been separated if it was us."
"Do you have any leads?"
"Listen to this."
"E-Ehh? We're in a Marine base?" asked Usopp. "H-How do you know?"
"Those guards chasing me clearly had Marine uniforms on. I wouldn't miss something like that."
"Th-Then we were caught! ..But I don't remember ever facing any Marines."
"I'm assuming we were ambushed and knocked out. I just don't know how we couldn't have seen it."
"We need to find the crew fast, and our stuff and the Sunny too."
"Wait a minute.." Sanji paused as he realized something. "WHY THE HELL AM I SITTING HERE TALKING TO YOU? NAMI-SAAAN! ROBIN-CHAN!"
Sanji kicked down the door and ran ahead. "NAMI-SAN! ROBIN-CHAN!"
"O-Oi! Wait!" Usopp ran after him while clutching the back of his gown to hide his rear. "DON'T LEAVE ME BEHIND, IDIOT!"
Sleeping soundly in his own room, was the captain of the Straw Hat pirates, Monkey D. Luffy. He was having his usual dream, everything about meat, until some guards passed by his door while yelling a few commands to their soldiers. Luffy's little snot bubble popped, waking him. He groaned and stretched, then reached beside his pillow for his straw hat.
Luffy shot up when he couldn't find his prized possession.
He lifted his pillow and his blanket, but came up empty.
He jumped off the bed and looked under it.
It was no where to be found. Luffy started to panic when he realized he wasn't in his normal clothes. He raised the hospital gown when he then felt a breeze on his rear. Luffy turned around.
"Ehh? Weird, why am I naked? But I need my hat."
Luffy headed for the door and reached for the door knob when he sensed someone on the other side. There were two of them, and they right outside his door. He heard them conversing and their main topic caught his attention.
"It seems all of the Straw Hats have woken up and escaped. The only one still knocked out is their captain."
"After being asleep for weeks, I thought they would've been dead already."
"Either way, Vice Admiral Sega will find them and kill them off, just like the rest of the pirate crews he's captured."
Luffy's eyes widened. He clenched his fists then looked down at himself.
The guards outside were startled when they heard a crash coming from Luffy's room. They bursted in and saw the bars on the window dented followed by a broken glass window. They ran for the window and looked down. Luffy jumped down from the ceiling and kicked the both of them from behind. One of them was knocked out while the other one tried to maintain his stance.
The guard raised his pistol up to Luffy, but he grabbed it and threw it out the window. Luffy grabbed the guard by the collar and pinned him to the wall. The guard was terrified not only with what the Straw Hat captain would do to him, but of his death glare saying this wasn't going to end well for him. After weeks of endless slumber, the infamous Straw Hat Luffy has finally awaken.
"Where. Is. My. Crew?"
Sorry for the shortness of the chapter. I didn't want to reveal too much in just the first chapter. I've been planning and writing this since April or May. A lot of changes had to be made, but here it is!
- Mai's name is actually pronounced like 'my' not 'may'.
- 'Boshi' - Hat
