On the Logan, after all the partners were gathered, it became lively. In particular, the addition of four new members has made the ship noisy every day.
In such an environment, Rogen often sat cross-legged on the bow of the ship, smiling and letting the sea breeze blow his black hair, and enjoying the smell of the sea.
“I admire such feeling and environment!”
Three days later, the Reverse Mountain appeared in front of everyone.
It’s not the first time they have arrived to this location, everyone was looking at the Reverse Mountain with a smile on their faces. Only Nanlin, with amazement in her eyes, had never seen such a magical sight.
A river flows straight up to the sky, with no end in sight. The water flow near the bottom of the mountain was very turbulent, and the water splashes at the bottom of the mountain. This scene was very spectacular.
Rogen looked up at the mountain in front of him, marveling in his heart. The real Reverse Mountain was more majestic than in the anime, and it is more disturbing.
The power of nature is truly breathtaking.
The Logan bumped up and rushed into the sky along the river. During this period, the six dragon elephants and Caros roared loudly, venting their emotions and jumping happily.
The sea breeze blew hard, everyone’s hair was fluttering, they were affected by the scene, and their minds were agitated.
About an hour later, the Logan reached the peak of the Mountain, and its speed began to slow down.
“Go to the East Blue.”
After informing everyone, Rogen steered the rudder and turned towards the east Blue. One minute later, the ship vibrated and went down the current. There is no doubt that the pressure of the upstream is much stronger than that of the downstream, but under the power of the Logan, the ship was still slowly moving downward.
About three hours later, the Logan landed near the Calm Belt and reached the East Blue.
“Captain, are you going to see Rouge and little Ace?”
Jason asked aloud what he thought of.
“Well, they should be here.”
Rogen did not hide his destination, nodded, and admitted.
“I haven’t seen them in four years, Ace should already be a little boy!”
“Haha, of course, he is.”
As Ace’s uncle, he has never had a chance to be with him since he was born. He has to admit that this was a pity.
According to his estimation, he was naturally the most suitable person to raise his nephew. This time he came to the East Blue to take Ace and his mother to live in the Kingdom of Barut. According to his identity, Ace, the little guy, can be regarded as a little prince.
Seven days later, the Logan anchored in Loguetown.
Everyone disembarked and rested, leaving only Caros and Daz to watch the ship.
In this sea area, these two were enough to guard the ship. Although Caros’ strength hasn’t been shown, it is not bad at all according to Trensu’s description. This was beyond the expectation of Jason and Crocodile. They did not expect that the clumsy guy who couldn’t land a punch four years ago had grown up.
Rogen walked alone, unconsciously, he had once again come to his former residence.
The iron locks on his door were rusty, and weeds grew tall outside the house. It seems that no one has cleaned it for a long time.
Opening the lock silently, Rogen walked into the house.
At the corner of his eye, he saw a few spiders, crawling secretly and hiding in a dark corner to avoid him.
After a few glances, he sighed, picked up the broom and bucket, fetched water, and started to clean the place.
After about half an hour’s hard work, the house has been well cleaned by him.
On the second floor, on the wall, on the table, the photos of him and Roger have still remained.
A smile appeared on his face, and Rogen was in a complicated mood.
“Old man, unconsciously, I am going to follow the path you have created!”
With a sigh, he started thinking about the future again.
“The troubles you left me are really giving me a headache.”
Perhaps the big trouble left by Roger was not for him to solve. But as the opponent’s younger brother, how could Rogen stand by. Even if he doesn’t want to be involved, others will force it all on his head.
This is a destined thing, it can’t be avoided, can’t be controlled!
Sitting there silently, Rogen fell into contemplation and dove into his memories.
He may be cherishing the past, or he may be planning the future, no one knows what he was thinking.
Since childhood, Rogen was completely different from Roger. Roger was cheerful, bright, and optimistic by nature. He was a child that doesn’t grow up, kind and righteous.
As for Rogen, apart from his similar appearance, his personality is basically opposite to that of his brother. Introverted, reticent, and resourceful, this is Rogen’s character.
After sitting there for an unknown amount of time, Rogen was awakened by a voice.
“Is this your brother?”
The voice was pleasant and sweet, accompanied by a faint fragrance, causing Rogen to raise his head.
“It turns out to be you, why are you here?”
“Curious about where you used to live.”
The little master smiled and glanced over.
“Very simple place, but very clean.”
The simple and clean evaluation made Rogen smile.
“Clean, because I just cleaned it, simple, because I am poor.”
Rogen’s words made the little master laugh.
“You were very young at that time, and your brother was still a young adult.”
“Well, I was only six years old then.”
Looking at himself in the photo with an ugly and disgusting expression, and the man next to him rubbing his head, Rogen smiled.
“At the time, you didn’t want to take pictures with him.”
The little master asked with a smile.
“Yes, even though we have the same mother, I am much more handsome than him.”
“None of you is humble thoo.”
The little master laughed again.
Sitting down slowly, the little master and Rogen were very close. Rogen’s nose moved up twice, and he could even smell the fragrance of the girl near him.
“You’re so fragrant.”
“Then you can smell well too.”
With her soft voice, Rogen felt that the beautiful woman near him was getting closer to him.
“For a long time, we haven’t been alone together, Rogen.”
Suddenly, Rogen’s body tightened, and he felt that his waist was hugged tightly by the other party.
After a tremor, Rogen also stretched out his hand to pat her shoulder.
“Thank you so much, Rogen, four years ago, you…!”
With a crying voice, the little master’s head leaned on his chest.
“It’s all my fault, you were captured and sent to Impel Down, you must have suffered a lot these four years!”
The woman in his arms was sobbing, and Rogen went silent for a while.
“I don’t know, I really don’t know how to thank you.”
Her hand around his waist was tightened, and Rogen could feel her hugging him so hard.
“Don’t be a fool? I’m your captain, all I did was my duty!”
“Is that all?”
But at the end of this sentence, the beautiful girl in his arms suddenly raised her head, tears in her eyes, and shouted loudly.
“You know, Rogen, the answer I want is not just that you, as a captain, did all this for me!”
“What I want is you to admit that you did it for me!”
Rogen’s whole body trembled, and he was startled for a while.
