I guess I'll still be continuing this then. However, just to say, this fic isn't going to be updated as frequent as my other fics. I'm still having my doubts on finishing it but I'm kind of pumped for it xD This pairing is rare, I know and I could feel daggers aiming at me for coming up with such a crack pairing. LOL! Come at me, bro. Shoot me! Kill meeee! -slapped-
BeebleeTee17: I've decided to put this story in progress for the time being since I can see myself updating more chapters for it xD Eh? I'm not a huge fan of writing pregnancy but other stuffs works :P Plus, they hadn't done the deed yet. XD
Aimiko: You do? Yaaaay! I'm so happy that you are starting to like this pairing too! :'DDD
"You're always smoking! Can't you see how worried I am, yoi?"
"Give it a rest already! I told you that I can't go a day without smoking! It's not like you can understand anyway."
It's another day with the crew when they were still looking for a cure for the affected parties. The now-turned girls had already grown more adapt at their genders except for Zoroko who was still venomously declaring that he'll slice the one responsible into pieces. If it was an island's curse, he will sink the island with one sword. Sanjiko's new infatuation distracted her from the problem while Luffyko was content as long as she could stay with Ace. Usoko didn't think it was as bad as she first thought as it didn't hinder her work either. Chopper looked the same throughout although the little reindeer tried to convince them that she was also affected by the spell.
However, now, we're all looking at a rare moment of fight between Marco and Sanjiko.
It all started when Sanjiko was caught smoking again and as usual, Marco felt the need to point it out to her that she shouldn't smoke as much now that she was a girl. Feeling insulted (Marco had a feeling that it wasn't his words that mainly struck her), she shot back at him and refused to listen. To aggravate him, she took out another cigarette and smoked two in her mouth which results in Marco angrily took the cigarettes away from her and thus, we have what we have now.
"That doesn't mean that you have to smoke two at the same time just to make your point. That's dangerous, yoi. You're always not thinking about yourself. You're just like Luffy, always being reckless and putting your lives in danger!"
"That's called being independent and strong enough to fight! And don't compare me with Luffy! You're always having that lazy look on your face. No wonder Ace falls asleep all the time! Because he's just as lazy as you are!"
"Why are they talking about us?" Luffyko asked.
"I don't know. But I have a feeling that we shouldn't have parents," Ace replied as the both observed the scene.
"Maybe if you had set a better example then Luffy would start thinking about his own life!"
"Well maybe if you wiped that lazy look off your face then Ace would stop falling asleep on my food!"
Ace took his moment to raise up his hand and voice out his opinion. "Uh… about that. My narcolepsy isn't Marco's fault and Luffy had always been like this even before he met you, Sanjiko," he pointed out but regretted his actions when Marco and Sanjiko turned their glares on him.
Then, they turned back to each other.
"You never listen to me, yoi! Even when it's for your own good."
"I know what's for my own good!"
"Apparently you don't as you keep on smoking every day!"
"Don't talk as if you take care of yourself! Don't forget that I used to have to spoon feed you everyday so that you will take your meals properly!"
"That was in the past and I am taking them properly now, aren't I?"
"Oh? So you don't need me anymore, huh? Is that what you're trying to say? Fine! If that's how it is then so be it! I won't talk to you anymore!"
With that, Sanjiko turned on her heels and stormed away angrily, grumbling something along the lines of damned pineapples and grilled turkeys. Marco, had a lot more patience than people gave him credit for, leaned against the hull of the ship. He buried his face in his hand and gave a deep sigh. He hardly fought with Sanji or Sanjiko. To be honest, he couldn't even remember the last time they did-that is, if they ever fought before in the first place. Ace and Luffyko only stared as Marco was cursing his own life now.
Ace and Luffyko glanced at each other before Luffyko raised her hand to inform something important.
"Sanjiko was screaming something about blood this morning in the bathroom."
"Blood?" Marco asked.
"Is her tap running? You know, like how Dadan says when she goes crazy during a few days in a month," Ace inquired.
"Uh… Nami did explain it to us that it's what girls get during once a month and we should call it period. She says that it's very painful and that we might get moody. The more inexperienced, the moodier we'll get. After that, Sanjiko cried and went out of the room," Luffyko replied.
Marco did know what was Luffyko talking about but no one expected this to come about. Even though it was logical seeing how they were already mostly converted into girls (especially Sanjiko who Zoroko commented that her hormones had flipped hundred-eighty degrees) that they should've seen this coming. But heck! No one would imagine or even think of either one of the former men having such a problem. After being too used with the former men, the thought just didn't come to them. But they do know the horrors when women gets their moments because they could never forget the week Whitebeard went on without drinking a single sip of alcohol.
And if Sanjiko was really going through her period, it means that she would be ten times more stubborn than usual.
Marco was fine with giving in and apologizing (he had to go through worse than that in his life with Ace and Thatch) but he felt that he should leave her alone for the time being. The blonde just hoped that she wasn't smoking now. He wouldn't know if it'd make her health worse if she smoked during her time but he didn't want to risk anything.
"You know… my chest started hurting recently…" Luffyko pointed out while rubbing her rubbery boobs.
"Your chest?" Ace asked in concern while trying to push away the blush forming on his cheeks. "Are you ill? Do you want to see the nurse?"
"Um… Chopper said that my body is fine so there shouldn't be anything to worry about. But man… they just wouldn't stop hurting," Luffyko complained. "Aceeee, could you help me massage them? My hands are tired."
Ace spluttered and blushed even more. "Y-You want me to do what?!"
Right, he hadn't touched Luffy or Luffyko that way yet. He did make passing remarks but never thought of tainting his little sibling slash lover. Maybe if it was another women, he'd return the remark but this was Luffyko!
"Help me massage them! They really hurt and it's annoying."
"I-I can't do something like that. Not to you…"
"So you'd do to someone else?" Luffyko asked and looked at him with teary eyes. "A-Ace doesn't like me? Do you think that I'm ugly now because I've turned into this? E-Even though Ace said that he'd love me no matter what I turn into."
"N-No, that's not what I meant at all!"
Marco decided that it would be the best to leave since he pretty much figured out what was happening to Luffyko. He just hoped Ace had a better luck with her and both ships would stay sailing along the seas until peace could finally return again.
The day had passed and Marco hadn't gotten a chance to talk to Sanjiko at all. The blonde cook would just ignore him when he tried to start a conversation or avoided him as much as she could. She was being difficult and Marco didn't know what he should do to please her or get her attention before he could. He had never dealt with this before in his entire life. Not even Sanji would be this stubborn and hot headed.
Once again he found himself sulking at the his usual place on the ship while ignoring Ace who was being jumped by Luffyko more often than usual. If he'd pay attention, he would've noticed that Luffyko was trying to get Ace's attention more than usual.
He watched as Sanjiko was talking to Robin, wanting to make up with her as soon as possible so that this drama would end.
Life just wasn't giving him that chance.
"Hey, Marco!" Thatch called out cheerfully as usual and Marco had to cringe at whatever he had in stall for him. "Don't give me that look. Geez, I know better than to not disturb you when you're feeling down. What do you take me for? I'm your dear friend!"
"Uh huh," Marco said in a disbelief tone. "You liked to bother me the most at the worst possible moments."
"I've never felt so insulted in my life when I'm worrying about you," Thatch said and when he caught Marco's apologetic glance, he grinned and patted the back of his head (Marco hated when someone does that unless it's Sanjiko). "So what's ruffling your feathers, bud?"
Ignoring the joke, Marco swatted his hand away. "What else, yoi?" he grumbled.
"Your man? Or girl now, to be exact. What're you being depressed for? You know how much the crew would love to kill to get a woman by their side," Thatch remarked.
"As you can see, Thatch. Sanjiko is avoiding me because we had a fight."
"A fight? What did you do this time?"
Marco stared at him as though saying, 'why do you think that it's always my fault?' before shaking his head. "She was smoking and I just tried to stop her. She blew up and that's how we got into a fight. She changed a lot ever since she was turned from a male, yoi."
"Different? How so?"
"I can't say that they're all bad. She started clinging onto me and gotten jealous easily. I had to stop her from using her legs on a girl once. And recently… I kind of caught her… peeking when I was showering," Marco said uncomfortably.
"You crazy virgin!" Thatch yelled and slapped Marco on the back. "Did you talk to her about it? What did you say?"
"Why would I talk to her about it, yoi?! What would YOU say if a girl was peeping at you and you don't want to bring it up because you don't want to hurt her feelings?"
"I would invite Sanjiko to bathe with me," Thatch said playfully.
"I said 'a girl', not Sanjiko! Sanji or Sanjiko, she's still mine and I'll get mad if anyone of you makes a move on her! We may have fought but I'm still not letting her go, yoi!"
A gasp interrupted their conversation and the both of them looked over to find Sanjiko eavesdropping from a distance.
"I'll leave the rest to you, buddy," Thatch said good-heartedly and patted Marco on the back once again before walking away happily… most likely to bother Ace this time.
"Did you really mean what you said?" Sanjiko asked with a hint of shyness in her tone.
Marco blushed in embarrassment at being caught and nodded. "Yeah, of course."
Sanjiko's heart skipped a few beats and she ran forward to hug the blonde. "I'm so happy to hear that! I'm so sorry that I had ignored you, Marco-kyun. I was really stupid and wasn't thinking. I don't know what got to me but I don't hate you at all!"
"I know, yoi. I have to apologize too… Luffyko told me what you were… uh, going through."
Sanjiko's cheeks grew red. "Y-Yeah, Nami-san told me about it. It was uncomfortable…"
"I thought so." Marco chuckled and ruffled her hair. "I'm not angry or anything. I'm just glad that things are fine now, yoi."
"Mmm, I'm too," Sanjiko admitted and looked up at him with a smile. "I love you so much, Marco-kyun~" She giggled and kissed him on the lips. And this time, Marco gladly returned the gesture and pulled her close.
Everything was fine now.
If you wanna shoot me now, here's your chance! :D -slapped twice-
Review, please? :3
