Ussop knocked gently on the door of the bedroom Robin was resting in. In response, Nami poked her head round the door. "The great Captain Ussop has arrived to entertain the great archaeologist of the Straw Hat pirates." He said spinning chopsticks in his hand. "They can all come in." Robin said from behind Nami from her posistion on the bed.
Luffy pushed past Ussop as did Sanji which left Ussop squished against the door. Nami laughed, opening the door wider so that Vivi and Zoro could enter. Ussop unpeeled himself from the door way, "Hey Luffy, that wasn't very nice you know!" "Shishishi" Luffy laughed loud making Robin smile.
Luffy turned to Robin, "How did you know we was all there waiting to barge in?" Robin smiled knowingly as an eye appeared in the middle of Luffy's forehead. "Wow that's so cool, I'm a three eyed rubber man now!" Luffy fist pumped the air, "Now all you need is an afro!" Ussop said excitedly.
Robin laughed making the eye disappear on Luffy's forehead. Sanji spun round and knelt beside Robin's bedside. "You look so beautiful when you're injured, I made you your favourite coffee to help you recover quicker." He said handing the coffee to her with hearts sticking out from his eyes. "Suck up love-cook" Zoro muttered making Ussop beside him laugh. "Hey what did you say?!" Sanji turned fiercely towards him.
'Never is a dull moment around with them two arguing.' Robin thought smiling, taking a sip of the coffee, preventing an argument between the two boys she spoke up, "Thank you Mr Cook." Sanji spun around in delight.
"So Robin, are you feeling better now?" Vivi asked soothingly. "It hurts a bit but on the whole I feel fine." "Good.. We spoke to Rex about what happened.." Vivi began but was cut off by a serious faced Luffy "We won't let Eneru take you away from us, Robin." She smiled at him, "I know you won't."
"We know from Rex that Eneru wants Robin because he has got hold of a poneglyph in which he can't read, but believes this poneglyph is something he can use for his world domination." Vivi informed Sanji, Ussop, Nami and Robin.
"That would essentially be the lost stone of Izan.. The poneglyph would hold the location of the stone which was locked away after a dictator ruled and ruined the world, it holds power to be able to enslave all and control." Robin told the group who were shocked at this knowledge. "How come we've never heard of this before?" Nami asked Robin. 'Surely something this legendary would be more valuable then even the One Piece.'
"It doesn't exist... Not anymore." Robin said straightforwardly, "The poneglyph was shattered into a million pieces hundreds of years ago. You haven't heard about it because it is related to the true history poneglyph, it is thought what is known about it would be located in the true history poneglyph. It is yet a rumoured legend that ceases no way of knowing if it's real or not, because if it was it exists no longer and if it wasn't around to begin with then there's no way to prove that either.. Unless obviously you found the stone." Nami nodded.
"However if it wasn't destroyed and Eneru actually has the right poneglyph, then what would happen?" Sanji said, and Robin shook her head. "It is unthinkable, the books I have read only briefly state this stone as a legend even more powerful then Pluton.." Robin stole a glance at Vivi, "If Eneru was to have the poneglyph somehow that show's the location we still have nothing to worry about. There is not a single soul I know apart from myself that is alive today that can read poneglyphs and I would NEVER read one aloud with the correct information." "She's telling the truth, she lied to Crocodile about the location of Pluton and received a beating for it." Vivi replied honestly.
"Rex also said there's something special about you Robin. Something unrelated to the poneglyph, however he says he don't know what it is." Vivi said and Robin shook her head. "He said I have something he possesses." Robin informed them, "But I don't know what it is either I'm afraid."
"Either way Eneru still wants you Robin, with or without the poneglyph he wants you and you're in danger." Nami began, "I think we should keep our guard up for the next days, he struck yesterday which means he could strike again any moment. Therefore I think we should take caution on leaving you by yourself and have one of the boys be with you or near you at all times." Sanji nodded enthusiatically, "I agree for your safety Robin" He said and Robin smiled gratefully, "Thank you. Well if you're sure that'd be better then I don't mind, but I don't want to trouble you all." Nami grinned, "No trouble too much for our nakama."
After a while the Straw Hats began to leave Robin's room for dinner, "Are you up to joining us for dinner?" Sanji asked her and she shook her head "Absolutely starving but I think I'll just stay and rest." She replied stretching her arms above her neck, "I'll bring you some food." Sanji said leaving the room with a wave and Robin smiled turning away from the leaving group, pulling out a fresh nightgown that Nami had brought her from the ship.
"I'll come see to you in the morning, get some rest and remember to take the anti-biotics after you've eaten," Chopper called out as he left the room. "I'll come and see you when I wake up in the morning also," Nami said grinning as the rest of the group left the room infront of her. Just infront was Zoro and Nami stopped him before he completely left the room. "You're watching her tonight. And when I say watching I mean eyes on her at all times. I'll bring you your dinner as well." Nami winked at him. Unnoticed by the rest of the crew apart from Nami he stayed behind closing the door without a protest. 'I'm surprised," Nami thought to herself, 'Tonight he would usually train or at least argue before agreeing, jeez I must be right, he does like Robin..'
Robin herself hadn't realized Zoro was still in the room, his eyes were pierced to her back as she pulled the evening dress from the night before from her body and pushed the silky nightgown back over her head. It was shorter then Zoro remembered it, clinging tightly to her body and her upper thighs. 'Her body is breathtaking,' Zoro began to think before shaking his head, 'That's twice now, I am clearly spending too much time around that perverted cook. Although I'm glad it wasn't him watching her tonight, I would've had to fight with him for looking at a woman so undecently.'' Turning round Robin finally noticed the Swordsman who had his eyes fixated on her. "Sorry." He scratched the back of his head embarresed but she smiled softly, "Nami tell you too watch me tonight?" She commented with a slight blush hoping that Zoro wouldn't notice and he nodded to her question.
Embarresed Robin sat down on the double bed she had been laying on for the day. "I'm sorry you have to do this, you could be training right now but instead you're babysitting me." Zoro smiled to himself at the babysitting part, he was nineteen and she was seventeen, another reason he believed he shouldn't have feelings towards her. "I don't mind, just as long as you stay safe." Realizing what he said he added, "Luffy's orders if I let anything happen to you he'd never forgive me." 'I'd never forgive myself if anything happened to you..'. He thought to himself before cursing under his breath about what he was thinking.
"Listen, I'm only going to say it once but I am sorry about what happened last night, I didn't mean to hurt you as badly as I did." Zoro continued trying to get away from the subject and Robin was further shocked. 'Since when did Zoro ever apologize even if it was brief?' "It's fine Mr Swordsman, I'm still alive aren't I?" She smiled at him although he showed no emotion just grunted.
Nami knocked on the door balancing a large tray upon only one hand. Zoro opened it, "Dinner's served" She said handing it to Zoro who opened his arms to take it. "Night guys." Nami said with a yawn before winking towards Robin who blushed and turned away.
Nami shut the door behind her as she left and Zoro placed the tray on the bed before sitting at the edge beside Robin. Taking a bowl from the tray she realized how hungry she actually was and a grumble rumbled from her stomach. She began to eat slowly savouring the flavour that filled her mouth as Zoro did the same.
