Three days later.
Marine Headquarters Rear Admiral Onigumo, led a fleet from West Blue branches to pursuit Ghost Hand Pirates and was defeated and lost four Battles.h.i.+p, his life or death is unknown, this news spread across the sea.
On this day, the entire West Blue boiled.
“What a joke, even the Rear Admiral sent by Headquarters…”
Countless people were holding the newspaper and their faces were full of horror and unbelievable looks.
No one thought that a Rear Admiral that was sent from Marine Headquarters, could not cope with the Ghost Hand Pirates. It is more incredible that this pirate group is only a force of the West Blue and not a powerful force on the Grand Line.
As the news spread, not only West Blue but also some of the pirate forces on the Grand Line also got news and the Ghost Hand Pirates gathered a lot of attention.
On The Grand Line.
On a Pirate s.h.i.+p of the Happo Navy, a fat old man with a lush, gray beard and bald head in a green s.h.i.+rt is looking at the newspaper in his hand.
He is the twelfth generation Leader of the Happo Navy, Don Chinjao.
“Sai's death means that he’s not as skilled as a man who killed him and there is nothing to say about death at sea, but it is unforgivable that he killed the next generation Leader of the Happo Navy.”
He tore apart the newspaper in his hand, his eyes burning with anger. “Wait for me, kid, I’ll find you sooner or later!”
On the other side of the sea.
A pirate with 90 million berries bounty took the newspaper and said: “Did he kill the Rear Admiral of Marine Headquarters? there’s a great guy in the West Blue…”
Somewhere in a bar, a one-eyed pirate reading a newspaper while drinking grinned: “Headquarters Rear Admiral Onigumo, the b.a.s.t.a.r.d had come to chase after me before, but he died in the West Blue.”
“Sooner or later, it looks like you’ll come to Grand Line.”
“Who knows? But Grand Line is not West Blue, so high-profile intrusion into Grand Line may not be a good thing, he has already attracted a lot of attention.
In most cases, the pirate forces fight each other because there is only one big secret treasure and The King of Pirates is the only that can have it, So only by defeating all compet.i.tors, can someone stand on the top of the entire sea.
Two days before the completion of the new s.h.i.+p.
Inside the old s.h.i.+p’s cabin, Ross stood in the center of six swinging sandbags with his eyes closed, His fists were clenched and he was beating the swinging sandbags incessantly.
In his confrontation with Onigumo, although he realized and displayed the Observation Haki, It was not stable. It could only be regarded as a beginner level. He could only display it when he was fully absorbed and entered a special state.
Haki can’t be mastered without intense training and Armament Haki hardening also requires a lot of Battle experience to master.
The same is true for Observation Haki.
Even after awakening it in Battle, it will still require a lot of Battle experience and individual practice, in order to polish it to a perfect mastery.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Over time, Ross was no longer confined to a fixed position but began to move gradually. He closed his eyes, threaded through a large number of swinging sandbags, hit those flipping sandbags accurately with his fists and occasionally sidestepped to avoid a few.
“Before my battle with Onigumo, I have always been at a disadvantage in terms of speed. Otherwise, even if Onigumo masters Observation Haki, I can rely on my flexibility and speed to avoid most attacks.”
Ross evaded the sandbags as he recalled the previous Battle.
Now, his speed has improved a lot compared to before.
Because of the 40 Talent Proficiency points, he got after killing Onigumo, he put all the points in the Agility Enhancement and now the proficiency of Agility Enhancement has reached 100 points, crossing the threshold towards High-Level Agility Enhancement.
In terms of speed and reaction speed, They are nearly doubled compared with the previous one. If he fought Onigumo again, even if he doesn’t use Observation Haki, he won’t need to fight to the point where the Win and the lost is undetermined.
The improvement of Agility Enhancement brings not only speed and reaction rate but also more sensitive senses and perceptions, which greatly reduces the difficulty of practicing Observation Haki for Ross.
With stronger senses and perceptions, Ross can easily detect the presence of Observation Haki and he constantly tries to control it during his exercise.
He wants to be able to use the Observation Haki as much as he wants and not just use it instinctively in a battle.
There were twelve sandbags hanging in his room. They were all swinging freely in the room at different speed. The size and directions of each sandbag were completely different.
With his senses of hearing, Ross accurately avoided every sandbag and hits every falling sandbag with his fist
"It's still a bit difficult to control Haki as I want."
Ross kept avoiding and waving his fists, enduring the spiritual burst of fatigue until he could no longer perceive the sandbags that had hit him and he stopped.
Observation Haki does not consume much stamina, but it does consume spirit. Even Ross can only exercise by taking breaks.
Over the past three days, Ross has gradually found the direction to fully grasp Observation Haki with his own exploration and by the points recorded in the reading notes. All that is left is practicing persistently.
Just as Ross stepped out of the practice room and went back to his room, intending to take a sip of water before his short rest, Robin suddenly came from around the corner.
She came over with a newspaper.
“Captain Ross, In today’s newspaper you occupied a big page.”
Ross took the newspaper from her hand and glanced at the part about himself. They were all official words, The crimes of a wicked pirate, being evil and so on.
“The government is still as rubbish as ever.”
He shook his head and found a new Bounty order from the bottom of the newspaper. Looking at the amount on the Bounty order, Ross smiled a little and said:
“92 million Berries, at last, I am no longer a captain whose bounty is not as high as his crew.”
Robin’s bounty is 79 million Berries, which has been a bit higher than Ross’s bounty and now he finally has more bounty reward than her.
Robin chuckled and said, “Sooner or later, Captain’s bounty will be even higher.”
The new 92 million berries bounty also caused a violent earthquake in West Blue’s Pirate Hunter circle.
Together with Devil Child Nico Robin on board, Ghost Hand Pirates has a total bounty of 171 million Berries. This huge bounty reward undoubtedly makes countless pirate hunters eyes red with greed and it also caused tremendous jealousy in a large portion of other pirates in the West Sea.
Even if they are jealous, no one dares to make a move against Ghost Hand Pirates.
Marine Headquarters Rear Admiral, a fleet of five Battles.h.i.+ps, this lineup was completely defeated by Ross, this real terrifying record was suffocating.
In the Morning after three days.
Ross is still practicing Observation Haki in his practice room same as before. Now his manipulation of Observation Haki is becoming more and more perfect. He's only a short distance away from mastering this power completely.
While Ross was exercising and trying to cross that short distance, Robin came to the practice room and told him that the new s.h.i.+p had been completely completed.
Ross grabbed the towel, wiped his neck and forehead and lightly stepped out of the swinging pile of sandbags, came to Robin and said, "Come on, Let's go and have a look."
They left the North Bank and walked along the familiar streets of s.h.i.+pwright island and soon arrived at the new s.h.i.+pbuilding site on the West Bank of s.h.i.+pwright island.
Before they arrived, they saw all kinds of waste and sawdust everywhere.
Obviously, in order to build a s.h.i.+p at full speed in seven days, waste and other things are left in the outer ring as there is no time to transport and dispose of it.
Moving forward, a forty meters long s.h.i.+p came into their view as they pa.s.sed through the waste.
The s.h.i.+p's hull is dark in tone, streamlined, without any particularly high cabin. The whole s.h.i.+p is like a long shuttle. Looking at its appearance, it can be seen that the s.h.i.+p is designed to absolutely crush other wide sailing s.h.i.+ps in terms of speed.
"Here you are."
On the starboard side of the s.h.i.+p, Old Fitz was making the final measurements, noticing the arrivals off Ross and Robin. He wiped the muddy sweat from his forehead and came over, he grinned and introduced the s.h.i.+p to Robin and Ross:
"Ghost Shadow s.h.i.+p!"
As the chief s.h.i.+pwright who designed the entire s.h.i.+p and was responsible for its construction, he is the only one who is qualified to name the s.h.i.+p.
He guided Ross and Robin to the side of the boat, pointing to the hull design and the building path on the s.h.i.+p: "I cut the size of the freeboard and installed vertical triangular sails. The hull is made of heavy Silverwood, strong enough to surpa.s.s any ordinary steel."
"Not to say whether it can reach any part of the sea, but at least among other sailing s.h.i.+ps, no s.h.i.+p can surpa.s.s it in speed!"
Old Fitz patted his chest and showed a touch of pride. It was a s.h.i.+p that he had designed a long time and now it was finally built with enough money and with a perfect keel backbone.
Except for those special powered s.h.i.+ps, none of the s.h.i.+ps he knows can match Ghost Shadow s.h.i.+p in terms of speed.
"What a magnificent s.h.i.+p."
Robin looked up at the entire Ghost Shadow s.h.i.+p with a glimmer of appreciation in her eyes.
Ross stood next to her, smiling. He was totally uninterested in firepower and the like. What he needed was a speed-based s.h.i.+p, supplemented by firmness and durability.
"It's a great honor to have the fastest sailing s.h.i.+p in the world."
Old Fitz waved his hand and said, "No, it should be. Without the Treasure Tree Adam branch you got, it would not be able to withstand the pressures of design and speed. Without the tens of millions of Berries, I would not be able to buy so many Silverwood hulls."
At this point, Old Fitz looked at Robin and paused. "I also hope that you can take Robin and leave the government and Marines far behind!"
Ross looked at Old Fitz and responded earnestly, "Robin is my crew member and I am responsible for all of my crew members."
Old Fitz stared at Ross and with his life experience, he could not see any sign that Ross was lying, so he grinned.
"All right! Don't you want to see what it looks like? Let's go and have a look!"
Old Fitz boarded the deck with Ross.
Since the entire s.h.i.+p does not have too many overtop structures, the upper level of the entire hull is extremely open and it is almost parallel to the sea level and has been neatly organized
"There is enough room on the deck for a full dance party."
Old Fitz smiled and led Ross and Robin into the cabin.
The mid-level building belongs to the main body of the cabin and it is also very open. There is a hall-like room in the center, with counter sofas and other things, such as a ballroom.
A large practice room is also designed here, which is made up of Golden Oak and special tough steel, which is stronger than Silverwood and can withstand great pressure and weight.
There are also designs in places like the study room. Although there are not many books in it, Robin still shows a sunny smile.
As for the bottom layer of the s.h.i.+p, it is a common cargo hold that can be used to stores all kinds of things.
There were not too many cannon muzzles on the hull. Together, there were only eight cannon muzzles on both sides and Ross was probably too lazy to bother with even those eight.
After looking at all the rooms and the entire hull, three of them returned to the deck. Ross looked at the deck under his feet, surprised.
"Hahaha, although I haven't built a s.h.i.+p for many years, I haven't forgotten how to built them." Old Fitz grinned and answered Ross's praise directly.
After two steps, Ross turned to Old Fitz and said, "This is almost a perfect s.h.i.+p and the only flaw I can see is that it is lacking a s.h.i.+pwright."
Old Fitz seemed to have guessed Ross would say that. He took the bottle out of his bosom and took a gulp of wine and intentionally went to the side of the s.h.i.+p and looked at the sea.
"But it's even more awkward for an old man to be s.h.i.+pwright. I didn't go to a Pirate s.h.i.+p when I was young and I won't go to one when I am already this old. The Sea belongs to you young people."
Having said that, he turned his head and there was a glimmer of sparkling in his eyes. "I only hope that you can take this s.h.i.+p and take Olivia's child away from the government."
Ross was not surprised by Old Fitz words.
Red Hair Shanks's s.h.i.+p was designed and built by him and he didn't board Shanks s.h.i.+p. The only one that can make him willing go on board as a s.h.i.+pwright is Robin, but the possibility is very low.
Ross shook his head and stopped inviting.
Old Fitz looked at Ross and Robin and laughed, then slowly walked down the gangway at a slightly faltering pace.
Ross looked at the sea in the distance, his eyes twinkling for a moment as he turned to Robin and said, "With a new s.h.i.+p, it's time for us to get some new crew members."
"Next I need two pieces of intelligence, one about the whereabouts of Double Sword Pirates of West Blue who has a bounty of 59 million Berries, and the other for… Demon Sherrif Laffitte's whereabouts."
This is also Ross' final mission before leaving West Blue and embarking on the Grand Line.
The Double Sword Pirates are the prey that Ross had chosen a long time ago. As for Demon Sherrif Laffitte, he was one of the main crew member and the Navigator of the Blackbeard Pirates in the original work.
Now that we want to turn the world upside down, we can just add fire to the group by pulling an "Evil Clown".
Besides, Ross has always wanted to find a navigator and does not want to work as a Captain and a navigator. Every day, besides practice, he spends a lot of time observing the weather and drawing sea map.
Nami is currently too small and far away in the East Blue, and Laffitte, who should be living in the West Blue, is undoubtedly a good choice for a Navigator. The only problem is how to get that person on board.
At this point, Ross is not going to rush to think about it, at least he is going to meet him first.
