Chapter 99: This is not Robbing, this is seizing
The auction was here so the owner could get money.
So, of course, the people that will attend are all rich nobles.
In this world, there are many things that could sell for a good price. The ordinary devil fruits are common in the Grandline but they were extremely rare in this piece of the sea.
Although there are many strong people on the Grandline, those strong people mostly didn’t have as much money as those rich nobles. So when they found such a good sword they directly went to sell it on the West blue underground auction.
The middle-aged man was really excited.
This wasn’t an ordinary sword. So it would sell and the price would be really good.
However, when the middle-aged man announced the start of the auction, no one actually spoke. Many people eyes were shining but they still were hesitant.
This is not some common sword, It was one of the Saijo O Wazamono series. The price will certainly be really high but all the people here are rich and it won’t be a problem for them.
The problem is that the sword couldn’t be controlled by them.
Mihawk is always carrying his sword on his back, alone. Did anyone dare to touch his Yoru?
Even if someone had his eye on it he won’t dare to touch it. Because the sword held some strange powers within it. If someone other then Mihawk touch it, he will be killed.
And even if they didn’t use it, wouldn’t this bring them too much trouble if this got leaked out?
Having this sword is big trouble.
So most people wanted to get it but they were still considering the risk.
“The hell …”
The middle-aged man saw that the people didn’t start the bid and his brow started to wrinkle. His eyes looked suspiciously and couldn’t help but say.
“No one wants this sword ?”
“If the item that was put for the end of this auction isn’t sold then it wouldn’t be nice … If so then I will let our people buy it.”
The middle-aged man face wasn’t looking good. If this can’t be sold it would hurt him.
After seeing that no one staring the bid, started winking at his people within the crowd to start biding. But before they spoke a loud voice came.
“Nobody wants this sword, then I will take it.”
The sound was moderate, but also held a trace of evil.
After the voice, a silhouette suddenly fell from above directly fell beside the table and took the sword into his hands.
Countless people stared at Roja who was holding the sword.
Holding this good sword, Roja’s eyes suddenly flashed with strange light. He didn’t expect the DonQuixote family to get one of the 12 swords and would try to sell it on the West blue.
There were only 12 swords on the whole world.
This was really a pleasant surprise.
If the DonQuixote family network wasn’t so big it would be difficult for them to find this sword.
“What are you doing?”
Roja’s sudden appearance made all people present surprised.
The middle-aged man was stunned by Roja who took the sword from the table.
His face instantly changed, pulled the gun and pointed it toward Roja.
Although he didn’t know who Roja was, since he is here, then that means he came looking for trouble.
“Hey Little devil, The DonQuixote family thing isn’t something that you can just Rob! You better honestly put it down.
Roja looked at Hiru, then leisurely turned toward the middle-aged man without a care about the gun pointed at him. he shook his head and said.
“No, I am not robbing. I am seizing.”
He said that casually.
Roja casually puts a white hat on his head.
It is the Marine hat.
The crowd was silent, followed by an uproar as if a drop of water has just been dropped into a hot oil.
“Are you a Marine ?”
“How did a Marine get here, DonQuixote guy, What is going on ?”
When they saw Roja suddenly appear and snatching the sword, all the people were in dismay, but they still didn’t think that Roja is Marine.
But he suddenly wore the Marine hat, Which made their eyes pop out and those who were sitting stood up.
Some people pulled out their weapon and looked at Roja.
And some others were looking around. They wanted to check if they were already surrounded by the Marines or not.
And others were only thinking about how to get out of here.
The DonQuixote family was in charge of this base so they didn’t expect a Marine to appear here. The middle-aged man was staring at Roja with panic in his eyes.
Roja didn’t wear his uniform. He was wearing casual clothes as he sneaked in. And it doesn’t seem that any Marine was outside either.
Although they didn’t know how Roja found out about this place and how he sneaked in But since his alone … Then it’s not a problem.
Of course, the location of the base is already exposed.
They need to get rid of the Marine in front of them and move the base to another place.
The middle-aged man thought then his killing intent was directed toward Roja. he didn’t hesitate to pull the trigger.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
A few bullets shot toward Roja. Maybe if Roja was an ordinary person then he wouldn’t be able to see the bullets. But this is Roja were talking about here.
The middle-aged man was shocked to see Roja only tilted his head to the side and avoided the gunshots.
The bullets didn’t hit.
All the people heard the gunshots and looked to the direction of the sound.
And all they saw was Roja tilted head and the middle-aged was holding the gun. All of them were surprised. Everyone knew that Roja avoided some bullets just now. What surprised them is that they were in the West blue so where did such a person come from.
Is this a joke?
The middle-aged man saw what happened and was surprised when he panicked. He started shooting at Roja like crazy.
(Tl: Loool those are Luffy’s words against the Pacifista after the 2 years.)
The Kenbunshoku Haki made him know the trajectory of each bullet. A mocking smile appeared on Roja’s mouth. Then he held the hilt of Hiru. his eyes flashed as he pulled it out from the scabbard.
