"So how does my theory sound?" I mutter as we walk down the hall, eyeing the man's reactions and movements carefully. He hesitated before answering, still considering my words. After a moment of silence, he slightly shrugged.

"It seems probable, but right now I don't have the information to say whether that is the case," He answered under his breath, loud enough for only I to hear.

Before this conversation.

My eyes shoot open at the loud ringing noise on repeat. I hiss out in pain and hold my neck at the sudden movement. I then realize that I had slept with my head on the desk which caused me to have a sore neck.

I sigh and let out a groan, in both fatigue and annoyance. For most of the night, my head was clouded with constant thoughts of if my theory was correct and they would be back in the One Piece universe, or if it wasn't, and they had to stay in this world. Because of this, I had stayed up switching between going on my computer researching and going to my bed for attempted sleep, yet I couldn't and just went to my computer instead. Thus, explaining why I was asleep on the desk.

I turn my head to glare at the alarm clock that was now giving me a headache. My eyes widen in realization as I notice the time on the clock. I stand up quickly, ignoring the head rush and pain in my neck, and grab a sweater and jeans to wear while I put my hair in a ponytail.

In a rush, I grab my school bag and one apple from my kitchen and dash out the door. I ran through the trees as fast as I could and finally reached the school. I got past the office and went to the current period which was the second last period of the day, history with Ms. Thomson.

After getting my late slip and getting my things needed for the class, I take out the elastic in my hair and brush out the disheveled strands of hair with my fingers, in attempt to make it look neater. Although, I probably didn't look neat at all since I caught a reflection of my face in the mirror at home, and saw dark under-eye circles and drool marks that hopefully weren't there anymore.

"Krissa, you're late," Ms. Thomas announced, looking above the doorframe at the clock that hung there.

I waved the white sheet of paper up and reply,"I just got here. I slept in."

Because of this comment, I got weird and questioning stares from people in the class. The teacher also gave me a weird look, but then gestured to sit somewhere. I wasn't familiar with most kids in this class, so I just sat at the table with a scarce amount of people.

"I never thought of you as a person to sleep in. You're like Hunter."

I look around trying to pinpoint the voice and look at the man beside me. In surprise, I exclaim, "Us-Elbaf?! I never knew you were in this class."

"I don't usually go to classes," Ussop replied, "I usually just say I'm a new kid and they accept me into their class. There's not much security around here."

I nod slowly at his explanation. Considering kids do it all the time, it was understandable. We sat quietly as the teacher began to start her lecture and explain the new project that she was giving to us. After her speech of the project and a brief history of England, she gave us a worksheet to complete in the remaining class time.

"Hey, Elbaf," I mutter gaining the boy's attention once again. "Do you have any guesses as to how you came here?"

He started to tap his pencil on the desk and thought about it. He looked up and me and said, "I don't know. I just think it's just some warp on the ocean. Grand Line is a crazy body of water."

"Do you want to hear my theory?" I ask since I need to tell someone this information otherwise I will forget it. Also, I was rather excited that I had the feeling that I was getting closer to returning them back home. Usopp looked at me for a few seconds. He placed his pencil that he had been tapping on the table down and placed his hands on his lap.

"Sure, I'll listen."

"Alright. So firstly, you told me that all of you remembered black before you ended up here, correct?"


"Because of that information, my solid theory was that it was the doing of a black hole."

Usopp looked at me with a confused face and a face that was trying to analyze an idiot. I roll my eyes and smirk, "yes, I know. It sounds ridiculous, but it makes sense."

"I, Captain Elbaf, have seen some crazy things, but I don't think that's what happened," he concluded, still looking at me weirdly.

I look at him with a straight face and say, "you live in a world with devil fruit powers, crazy oceans and people with strength that can par with god, yet you don't think a black hole is possible? I don't know about you, but I think you're being the crazy one."

Usopp's face changed from confusion to amusement in an instant. He then held his hand up in defense, "sorry, sorry. Go on with what you were saying."

"This is going to sound weird at first, but bear with me," I warn and continue in a low voice, "Like Luffy and Robin, there are people who have the power of devil-fruits. The fruits eaten have different types of powers, depending on which one the person ingests. In your world, a man contains the power of darkness, or in this case, a black hole. My guess is that he was the one who transferred you from your universe to this one."

"I still don't understand what you're trying to say."

I run a hand through my hair and put my elbows on the table, "simply put, this man is how you got here, and I may have a prediction of when you are to go back."

"What's his name? Have we met him before?"

"Hunter told me that you have. His name is-" I try and answer, but some curious people decide to join in.

"What are you guys talking about?" A boy asked, acne adorning his forehead and a few on his chin. His friend was beside him, but he didn't say a word. I looked up in shock at the random voice, but returned my calm composure.

"A book," I answer the boy simply, not batting a lash. Usopp's eyes shot to me and then quickly back to the couple.

"Oh, really? Well, I've heard of this RPG game that was kind of like that. You know, where there's a black hole. It starts with three people and they are set on a quest…" The boy continued on his ramble while I nodded my head at what he was saying, pretending I was listening. I wasn't sure if Usopp was bored, or if he thought these two were crazy, or even if he was interested in the game that they were talking about.

They rambled on for the majority of the forty-five minutes of time that we had left; I zoned out while Usopp's face still had a mixture of emotions that I couldn't read, yet I was positive it was leaning towards the interested emotion.

"Sorry to interrupt your ever so interesting conversation, you four."

My head lifted and scanned the area looking for the teacher. When turning my head to the side, I noticed a black skirt right behind me. I stayed facing forward, waiting for what she was going to say.

"Can you all follow me, please? We need to take a visit somewhere," she concluded, answering the obvious question as to why she was there. Even though it was meant to be a question, us four didn't have much say. Rather, it was because there was no room for argument.

In unison, we all nodded our head and stood from the desk. Ms. Thomas smiled and leaded us out the class. She quickly waved in another teacher to supervise the remaining people as we walked down the hallways. Since I was familiar to this school, I realized where we were going to go. The blonde teacher in front of us was leading us to the front part of the school which was where the office was. It's either we were in trouble, or we were there for good reasons. I honestly didn't care.

We followed Ms. Thomsons down the stairs and hallway like little children being escorted. In the midst of this, I tugged at Usopp's shirt. He jumped and looked at me.

"So how does my theory sound?" I mutter as we walk down the hall, eyeing the man's reactions and movements carefully. He hesitated before answering, still considering my words. After a moment of silence, he slightly shrugged.

"It seems probable, but right now I don't have the information to say whether that is the case," He answered under his breath, loud enough for only I to hear.

After forgetting about Usopp earlier in the story, I felt bad and put him in this chapter. In my mind, it was originally Zoro, but I think Zoro pops up too often out of the blue, so yeah. Usopp's kind of out of character in this chapter, but I had to alter him.

Have a good day/night :D
