Leaving Hakucha and her compatriots to their own current dwellings, knowing they would catch up when they were all present and accounted for. I meandered my way across tha ruddy terrain that tha lighthouse was perched on, one sweat rolling step at a time my staff clattering in stride with my steps. And not for tha first(nor tha last, if I was being honest) did I mutter a curse towards tha fact there wasn’t a single tree around to block tha sun with. Matter of fact, thinking of tha egregious lack of shade made it feel….hotter

I remember hearing people gossip bout tha GrandLines spastic weather. But I ain’t think we would hit tha shit first fucking quarter, fuck! You know what! I’m good…I’m good…I’m good…I’m not fucking good. But ain’t no point to keep up Tha bitching, shit jus finna end up pissin Katsumi off and then his bitchin will piss me off even more

Turning my head slightly to the right, I gave a cursory glance to Katsumi who was ambling alongside me. His shirt progressively becoming more unbuttoned to combat the flaming bullshit Mother Nature affectionately dubbed the sun

Aye, you think anybody on this muthafucka? Like obviously some fuck keeps it running and whatnot, but where would they get food and supplies from? And please tell me you brought a gun or something in case this shit goes sideways?

I inquired of him before my gaze navigated it’s way back at tha tower we were standing in front of. Goosebumps running rap shot across my soaked in perspiration back at tha thought gods gift to mankind- Air Conditioning

Katsumi scoffed.

"I'm always prepared."

He and his capatin had only been walking for a few minutes and both were soaked. To anyone else, they would look like they had both just climbed out of the ocean. He cast his gaze lazily infront of him, a look of relief filling his eyes as he spotted the tower up ahead.

Thank god! We can finally get out of this shitty heat. All the Grandline has successfully managed to do so far is ruin my day.

"And to answer your first question, it looks like we're about to find out."

Katsumi remained silent for a minute as they continued walking at the same pacr, the heat beating down on them like an angry mother. His expression transformed seamlessly from drained to annoyed.

"Why the hell are we still walking slowly!?Aren't you hot? You're a fishman, if im dying you're probably worse for wear and you're strolling like this sun isnt destroying us more than Isuka did."

He picked up the pace leaving Rihan behind and he headed towards to the building in front of them. Hoping for quick relief from the Grandline's crazy weather.

Whoever owns this place better have air conditioning.

The sun baked my form and sweat had started to pour down my back like a river. How long am I supposed to wait for the others? Aren't the deal struck? Aren't we going?
My annoyance was building, though, not the most dangerous murderous version from a little while ago. Be that as it may, my scowl seemed to almost have become permanent. In my childhood my face had sported a happy smile that would have lined my face and made me seem goodnatured as I matured. Alas, it was not meant to be. Even though I was still considered young, my face sported angry lines which would never be confused as anything else.

I rose to my feet and started pacing back and forth as I occasionally glanced the others way. The only person I could see with ease was Skoll of course, the others.. Well, I could spot them, or I could a while back.

Where did those two go?.. Rihan and Katsumi was it? Did they go explore the area?.. Shit..

My pace quickened as I walked back and forth. Then.. I snapped my fingers as I had what I considered a brilliant idea. I can simply launch an attack up into the air, that would get their focus and make them get back here.

That decided I stopped pacing and looked up. the sky was very blue, with thin white clouds overhead. There would be no chance of rain anytime soon. In a flash I was gripping my sword tightly as I started imbuing it with haki. It started as a vague feeling of power that you couldn't see with the naked eye, but then the black armament haki color started to flow up the length of the blade. When my whole blade was covered I started pushing more power into it, and a flame pattern started to appear and then the color of my blood shone through as well. Suddenly I started to feel puzzled.. What is this? I.. I feel like I can go on?

A manic grin spread across my face, it looked completely unnatural because the smile never reached my eyes. I kept pouring more haki into the blade and felt something building in it. My hand started to shake a little from the burden, but looking at the blade an blood red aura seemed to surround it, as if the haki in the weapon itself overflowed and spilled out into the world. I held my weapon close to my face as I wanted to examine this phenomenon. Then I yelped in surprise, because the weapon was clearly in front of my face, but not in contact with it, however there was something like a barrier that pushed against my face like it was also sending shockwaves out. I could feel myself getting injuries just holding it there.

"Ahahahahahahahaha"! My cackling echoed as I held my sword horizontally over my shoulder as I did a slashing motion that was slightly angled upward. A blood red slash flew upward towards a white cloud in the sky. Normally the slash would have cleaved a small hole in it that would have been difficult to see, however with the stronger version of armament haki it was like a shockwave also blew appart some of the cloud.

-Sanbyakurokuju Pound Ho: The user delivers a stronger version of his 36 Pound Cannon, which is presumably 10 times stronger than the original. (51 Mastery, 41 Strength) Destructive Potency Rank: B
My base strength 61 Small Building Level
Haki Emmison which is rank A
Gives me an attack which is Mountain level.

Heh, lets see how my enemies will stop me now.

Skoll
Hakucha

The Octopus skin slid off of the tentacle with ease as Skoll ran the tentacle over Tartarus' blade. He listed to Malcolm's words quietly and calmly as he continued to remove skin from muscle.

"Hakucha shall explain the situation soon enough once she arrives. It doth be her deal after all."

A sly grin crept slowly crept across Malcolm's withered features.

"I was doth considering informing Captain Hakucha of mine suspicions regarding this Rihan fellow but perhaps that would be mineself depriving the Captain of valuable learning experience?"

Malcolm's mirthful eyes drifted up to Skoll's face.

"We both doth be old souls but we can still learn from one another. Tell me Skoll, doth thou thinketh it better for Hakucha's learning for us to give her answers to scenarios that we have learned from our own past experience or for us to use our past experience to guide her towards answers on her own initiative?"
Skoll considered Malcolm's question as he continued to run octopus tentacles across his blade. After all of the tentacles had been skinned, he began to chop them into bite-sized pieces that he could store easily on his person. His ravenous stomach had started to calm itself as the meat he was already digesting sets in. As Skoll turned to Malcolm to answer him, a small voice pierces the sky and interrupts him.

"Skoll!" The voice rings out. Skoll's instinctual blast of observation Haki reveals the tiny presence of his captain atop her trusty steed Zodd the parrot, closing in on his head at the pace of the wind. Skoll turns and looks outwards toward his approaching Captain.

Hakucha, riding atop Zodd's back, the parrots wings being carried gently forward by the wind, looks at Skoll for a moment calmly. Internally, she was still in a bit of shock from thinking that Skoll had been injured under the waves. Tears came up to her eyes again, but she quickly wipes them away.

What's wrong with me? You've always been insane, jumping headfirst into insane situations looking for death. I've always considered the idea that you could die at any time...so why am I so bothered by this now??

After a moment of strange silence, Skoll speaks out towards the approaching dwarf.

"Captain?"

Hakucha shakes off her confusion and shouts towards the giant before her. "We've...We've made an alliance with the two Pirates who captain that ship out there! We're going to take down Crocodile of the Ouka Shichibukai! Hop aboard their ship, and we'll be taking off soon!"

Skoll's giant eyebrows raise slightly. "Ahhh...The Shichibukai...Yes, I've met one of them before."

Hakucha shouts outwards, interrupting him. "There's no time for your flashbacks right now! Just get on the ship as soon as you can!!"

With that, Hakucha tilts herself to the left, causing Zodd to bank hard left and head towards Rihan and Katsumi's location.

There's no time to screw around. Let's get this show on the road!!

As Hakucha flies away, Skoll's white eyes follow her form as she flies through the sky. After a moment, he looks downwards at Malcolm.

"I believe we should have faith in little Hakucha. I believe that what she lacks in strength, she makes up for in the cunning that we speak of. She is still young and foolish in many ways, but she will learn the way of this world quickly."

"Now..." Skoll says as he loads up all of the chopped pieces of octopus meat into pouches hidden underneath his fur pant dressing. "I suppose I'm going to head out towards the ship of our new allies. Feel free to hop onto my back, if you please."

And with that, Skoll hops off of the cliffside that he sat upon, crashing into the water with enough force to create some fairly large waves (though nothing that threatens the ship). Skoll begins to swim towards the Black Death.

As Skoll quietly continued dealing with the spontaneous supply of calamari, Malcolm heard a familiar voice laughing from afar before he bore witness to a sudden attack that was seemingly directed towards nothing but sky.

Tis probably Kyria duelling with naught but his own shadow.... Or perhaps his eye doth caught a glimmer of a vaguely Celestial Dragon shaped cloud? Eh, it doth matter not since even if there were truly to be anything wrong, comrade Kyria will likely shred any intruder beyond recognition before the rest of us could investigate, let alone assist.

Confident in his personal opinion that anything in this part of Paradise that was dumb enough to engage Kyria in combat was more than welcome to play chicken with Darwinism, Malcolm focused instead on the voice shouting our to the Giant next to him.
"Skoll!" The voice rings out. Skoll's instinctual blast of observation Haki reveals the tiny presence of his captain atop her trusty steed Zodd the parrot, closing in on his head at the pace of the wind. Skoll turns and looks outwards toward his approaching Captain.

Hakucha, riding atop Zodd's back, the parrots wings being carried gently forward by the wind, looks at Skoll for a moment calmly. Internally, she was still in a bit of shock from thinking that Skoll had been injured under the waves. Tears came up to her eyes again, but she quickly wipes them away.

What's wrong with me? You've always been insane, jumping headfirst into insane situations looking for death. I've always considered the idea that you could die at any time...so why am I so bothered by this now??

After a moment of strange silence, Skoll speaks out towards the approaching dwarf.

"Captain?"

Hakucha shakes off her confusion and shouts towards the giant before her. "We've...We've made an alliance with the two Pirates who captain that ship out there! We're going to take down Crocodile of the Ouka Shichibukai! Hop aboard their ship, and we'll be taking off soon!"

Skoll's giant eyebrows raise slightly. "Ahhh...The Shichibukai...Yes, I've met one of them before."

Hakucha shouts outwards, interrupting him. "There's no time for your flashbacks right now! Just get on the ship as soon as you can!!"
Malcolm's interest was greatly piqued by Skoll's claim of meeting a Warlord but he decided to leave that line of questioning for another day.
As Hakucha flies away, Skoll's white eyes follow her form as she flies through the sky. After a moment, he looks downwards at Malcolm.

"I believe we should have faith in little Hakucha. I believe that what she lacks in strength, she makes up for in the cunning that we speak of. She is still young and foolish in many ways, but she will learn the way of this world quickly."

"Now..." Skoll says as he loads up all of the chopped pieces of octopus meat into pouches hidden underneath his fur pant dressing. "I suppose I'm going to head out towards the ship of our new allies. Feel free to hop onto my back, if you please."

And with that, Skoll hops off of the cliffside that he sat upon, crashing into the water with enough force to create some fairly large waves (though nothing that threatens the ship). Skoll begins to swim towards the Black Death.
Quickly grabbing his still damp clothing and equipment, Malcolm swiftly ran towards where Skoll had just started to swim towards Rihan's ship.

After all, there was no point in getting himself wet(ter) if Skoll had already kindly offered him an alternative solution.

As he made himself comfortable on the Giant's great mane of wild hair, Malcolm thought back on the recent words from his current impromptu mode of sentient transport.

Very well, Skoll. I shall place mine trust in Hakucha's abilities. Let us see where this roll of the dice takes us, shall we?

The Emmision Haki energy around my sword puffed out as I dispelled it. I let out a heave sigh as I wiped at my sweaty brow, my hands tremored slightly.
Damn, that takes a lot of energy. I suppose the tremors will be easier to manage with practice, but there cannot be too many attacks I can fire with that type of haki before my body gives out. A movement registered in my peripheral vision and when I turned my head in that direction I could see Skoll starting to swim towards the ship. On his head I could also see the much smaller form of Malcolm.

Excellent excellent, now we're just missing Hakucha and the two others. Hm.. Where did the captain fly off to? No matter, she'll be back soon enough. Though, if she'd been here as well we could just take this damn ship.

As Skoll came near the ship I bellowed towards them

"It seems my Armament Haki has gone through a change for the better, how about you fellows"!??
