Reincarnated With the Book of Knowledge - RWBK Chapter 103 The New Secretary
As a member of the Baroque Works, Vivi’s position was not low despite being a newcomer, thanks to her strong business skills. As result, she knew the location of the headquarters very well.
Under her leadership, the two quickly arrived at the heart of Rainbase, the Rain Dinners, the largest casino in Alabasta.
Although the Baroque Works could not compare with the likes of the Donquixote Family in terms of their raw power, they were still a large trans-oceanic criminal organization with operations across the four seas and the first half of the Grand Line. With many members and numerous elites, their headquarters were relatively luxurious incomparable to ordinary underground organizations.
As they walked, there were guards everywhere, but with Vivi’s leadership, no one came to question them. Or rather, with the Baroque Works’ strength, they weren’t afraid of any infiltration since that was their line of work.
The two walked through several corridors, turned a few corners, and arrived at a large hall.
Many figures sat on the sofas in the hall, each with a slightly cold aura, they were clearly the assassins of the Baroque Works.
At this time, a slightly mocking female voice rang out:
“Oh, isn’t this the intern, Vivi? How come you weren’t killed when Blackbeard entered the harbor?”
Vivi frowned at the words and whispered to Rhodes beside her, “That’s Miss Doublefinger. She likes to look down on us interns.”
“No, no, I don’t look down on interns. I just mock you specifically,” Miss Doublefinger said in a cold tone.
“Weaklings have no right to survive, and you are too weak,” she added.
“Respectfully acknowledged, senior,” Vivi said submissively, bowing her head and avoiding eye contact, not daring to refute.
Miss Doublefinger nodded slightly, somewhat satisfied, and looked at Rhodes She couldn’t help but pause for a moment as if she recognized him from somewhere.
“And who is this?” she asked.
“I came back this time to recommend him to join the organization and become my partner,” Vivi quickly replied.
The Baroque Works knew the importance of pairing men and women, and they believed that work would be less exhausting if done in pairs. Miss Doublefinger’s partner was none other than the strongest agent of the Baroque Works, Mr. 1.
Miss Doublefinger sneered with a wave of her hand.
Partners are usually evenly matched, and ViVi’s strength speaks for itself. Seeing another weakling, she lost interest in exploring and walked away leisurely.
ViVi breathed a sigh of relief.
As for Rhodes, he didn’t care at all. He even found it a bit amusing. The narrower the vision, the more likely one is to develop these peculiar personalities.
True strong people never look down on the weak. Their gaze only looks forward.
Lost in thought, the two arrived outside a room.
ViVi knocked on the door, and a very familiar and pleasant voice came from inside.
ViVi opened the door, and the two walked in.
What met their eyes was a woman wearing an OL suit. She was sitting behind a desk and said without looking up, “What’s the matter?”
ViVi didn’t speak. Instead, she locked the door behind her.
A crisp sound of the lock echoed.
Robin, who was still a bit lazy, suddenly became alert when she realized something was not right. She was decisive and about to activate her ability to send a distress signal.
But it was only in that instant.
An indifferent voice suddenly came from behind her:
“You’d better not move, Nico Robin.”
Feeling a hand lightly touching her neck, Robin’s expression stiffened. She even dared not turn around, and barely maintained her composure as she said, “Who are you? The actions of the Baroque Works have nothing to do with me. I’m just an employee.”
“I can lead you to see the boss, please don’t make things difficult for me.”
Faced with an unknown and formidable enemy, Robin almost immediately chose to submit.
Rhodes shook his head, feeling Robin’s tight body trembling under his hand. He couldn’t help but show a bit of sadistic humor and ordered, “Stand up.”
Robin obediently stood up.
Robin should be 27 years old, in the prime of her womanhood. Every aspect of her body has almost reached its peak, and her tight-fitting OL suit perfectly highlighted her curves, fully displaying the alluring charm of a mature woman.
But Rhodes looked a bit annoyed.
Robin, who was over 1.9 meters tall in her high heels, towered over him by a considerable margin. Irritated by this, Rhodes actions were anything but gentlemanly, as he slapped Robin’s shapely rear and gestured for her to leave his desk.
There must have been some kind of alarm system at the desk, and Rhodes wasn’t ready to be exposed yet.
But Robin finally found an opportunity to break free from Rhodes’ clutches.
In one swift motion, she leaped up and gracefully turned around, crossing her hands and launching her power.
Silent as a breeze.
Three or four pairs of arms sprouted from Rhodes’ body, gripping his neck and arms, and he was about to be bent with force.
She yelled, but no matter how hard those arms exerted themselves, they couldn’t make Rhodes budge an inch, like a mantis trying to move a tree, grossly underestimating its strength.
“Flower-Flower Fruit Ability…”
Rhodes reached up and pinched one of the arms on his shoulder, then was astonished to find that the arms felt almost like real human arms, and he could even feel the warmth!
No wonder that when this ability emerged in the past, many people had some crazy ideas.
At this point, Robin was completely stunned.
Not because her power was completely ineffective against Rhodes, but because she recognized his identity.
He was the legendary Dragon Slayer, Rhodes, a young powerhouse who became famous at the age of seventeen and shook the dark world!
What is he doing here?
And why would he have a grudge against Baroque Works?
A series of questions flooded her mind, and even Robin’s calmness was momentarily at a loss.
Robin was different from Vivi.
She had personally witnessed the emerge of the Shichibukai system and the power of the Marine Admirals. As the one responsible for organizing intelligence, she had a relatively clear understanding of the powerful figures on the high seas.
As a pirate who had fled from the New World, Crocodile’s strength was absolutely inferior to that of Rhodes, the Dragon Slayer. Perhaps even Diamante, and Nightblade, who lost to Rhodes, could defeat Crocodile.
With her mind racing, Robin quickly made a decision – it seems that, like usual, she has to change sides!
After all, she and Crocodile were only using each other, and there was no psychological burden.
Under Vivi’s stunned gaze, Robin almost instantly completed the transformation of her identity and explained everything about Crocodile and Baroque Works’ conspiracy in detail.
She even produced a lot of solid evidence to support her claims.
Her words subtly hinted at her status as a mere working girl, absolving herself of all guilt and exposing Crocodile to the fullest.
Robin was so shrewd that Rhodes couldn’t be too harsh on her.
He listened, then nodded and offered her a job:
“You’re pretty good. My team need a capable secretary. Are you interested?”
“I’m happy to serve,” replied Robin, who couldn’t find a reason to refuse.
