S.P.P: Chapter 168: New crew members.

Just before starting the sail, five or six people suddenly ran out of the harbor.
“Wait for us!”
The six men ran, and their target was the Dragon Root.
Jason’s hand trembled and the ship stopped not far away from the port.
The six shouted loudly, and they were happy.
“Who are you guys?”
Jason asked.
At that moment, Crocodile came to the deck of the ship and looked down at them.
“What are you doing?”
These guys are the former crew of Crocodile.
“Captain, don’t abandon us, we’ve been waiting for you for a long time and we found you today, let us go with you please!”
The six men begged bitterly.
“What about the rest?”
Crocodile puffed the smoke and asked them.
The six men looked at each other and bowed their heads.
There were only six left at the port, and the whereabouts of the others were obvious.
“Why didn’t you leave?”
Crocodile asked again.
“We want to follow you, we want to be with you, captain!”
They answered with a low voice.
Crocodile didn’t utter a word. He missed them already, after all, he still has feelings.
He kept thinking and then looked at Rogen who nodded slightly.
“Jason, approach to the port and let them in!”
Crocodile said with a low voice.
“Crocodile, you have a good heart!”
Jason was surprised by Crocodile.
The six guys in front of him were unkempt and their clothes were dirty. At first glance, he knew that they have passed through difficult moments. That a big reason that they wanted to join Crocodile.
“Great, thank you, captain!”
When they heard Crocodile, they were excited and ran to the boat.
Jason docked the ship and the six persons climbed it up.
“I’m not your captain anymore!”
Crocodile stared at his former crew and whispered.
Upon hearing this, their faces changed and they looked at Crocodile nervously.
“This is your new Captain!”
Crocodile continued his sentence while he was pointing toward Rogen.
They turned their gaze and looked at Rogen, they found that Rogen was the one in the desert. They were shocked.
“You guys, go to the Bridge and fix the damaged parts there!”
“Now, you’re on board, then you won’t rest.”
“From now on, you’ll be the trainee group on this ship!”
They looked at each other and said: “Internship crew?”
They are not very weak, but they have been arranged to work as an intern crew here.
“You heard him! Now move!”
Crocodile’s expression was cold.
His indifferent tone gave the six people a moment of fear and let them move quickly.
In this way, there are six more internship members on the Dragon Root.
The wooden ship swayed in the sea and started the sail.
Three days after, the whole group became familiar with each other, and they were practicing together.
“Captain, we have a problem!”
On this day, Jason came over with a puzzled look.
“What happened?”
Crocodile asked with anxiety.
“Do you mean a hidden island?”
Rogen said lightly.
“Yeah, look, the needle of the compass is pointing to the sky; I think it’s broken!”
Jason shew the compass to Rogen and he was afraid.
Rogen’s eyes flashed and he shook his head. “The compass is good, according to the route, our next stop is an island that is located in the sky.”
“Island in the sky!!?”
Crocodile was a bit confused.
“Is there an island in the sky?”
Trensu was very curious also.
“Yes, but…”
Rogen wanted to say something but he stopped.
“We can’t go!”
The sky island does exist, but it’s not easy to go. In the original story, the Mugiwara no Ichimi were raised by the updraft, but for Rogen, there wasn’t an updraft at that moment. Even if there is, the time is uncertain, who knows how long it will take to wait.
“What should we do? How could we go to the Sabaody Archipelago without passing through Skypiea?”
Jason asked.
“Let’s go to the Mock Town and check it out there!”
Rogen’s eyes were deep and faint.
If he could, he would never refuse to go to the empty island, where there is a lot of gold in the ruins. And this gold, it can be exchanged into “Bailey” with the system. If he gets the gold, who knows how powerful would be the next possession!
Jason glanced and nodded.
The Dragon Root continued its sail and the everyone on board kept practicing.
Jason stood on the deck and kept making strange gestures and his body rattled. At this moment, he was practicing the Dragon elephant technique.
Crocodile was sitting cross-legged. And the Qi was circulating rapidly inside his body.
Rogen, under the perseverance of cultivation, he reached 363 acupoints, he was at the peak at this moment.
After that, he stared at the crowd and began to meditate.
“From No.3, I’ve copied the Rokushiki!”
“Everything but the Shigan!”
“However, it’s okay, this is enough for now. After all, it’s based on the physical attainment, and this is their skills, I could copy it in upcoming fights!”
It can be said that Rokushiki is a very powerful skill. A powerful man in his peak can surpass most people in the world using the Rokushiki. The Marine’s high-end training skills, if it’s combined with the Haki, then it would be very difficult to face them.
In the last fight, it was a bit hard to defeat those agents, but he did it, and they even thought that they couldn’t use they Rokushiki very well.
Real strong people would create innovative ways on the bases of the Six Powers, and they would exert the power it to the limit.
“I have to teach them these skills, Jason’s power is amazing, and with such skills, he will be unbreakable!”
Rogen wasn’t a jealous person; he is very generous to his partners.
While he was thinking, a trainee member came to the bow with full of panic eyes.
“Captain, this is so bad, there’s a Marine warship!”
Hearing this, all the crew members opened their eyes and looked at the warship.
Suddenly, a sharp voice broke through the air.
When they looked up, they saw the dark light that was rushing toward them.
“OMG, there’s no shell but…”
Jason looked up and said, “Damn it!”
When he cursed, everyone was stunned, a hard sound of bombarding came from the sky.
“Oh My God, someone is throwing these shells with his bare hands!”
Trensu, with shock in his eyes, looked at the warship and stunned.
