Meeting the Strawhats

I'm free. I'm finally free. I ran away. It may be snowing and I may be freezing, exhausted, and in lots of pain, but I can't stop running. I can't go back. A strong gust of wind blows my long brown hair in my face, blocking my vision. In return, I trip on a tree root. I try to get up, but I can't. I don't have enough strength left. I welcome the darkness as it envelops me.


When I wake up, I'm no longer outside. Instead, I'm in a bed inside of a room. As I sit up, I remember what happened. I ran away, then fell and passed out. Looking around the room, I realize that I must've been found and taken back. But, if I was found I wouldn't be in a bed or even in a room. I'd be back in my dirty cell.

 

My head is pounding it's hard for me to think. I was about to get up and try to figure out where I was, when the door opened and a woman with orange hair walked in. She looked nice, but because of my background I assumed the worst and went on the defensive. She slowly walked over to me. "You're awake."


When she was right beside the bed she reached towards me. This triggered sensitive memories and I instinctively backed away as far as I could screaming, "Please, don't hurt me!"


She gasped and retracted her hand a little. She continued to reach for me and wrapped her arms around me in a hug. She said, "I would never hurt you. You're safe here." Aching for some type of affection for so long, I wrapped my arms around her without a second thought. After staying like that for awhile, I felt myself losing consciousness again. My grip slowly loosened. She pulled back a little and yelled, "Chopper!" As she waited, she laid me down.


I heard the door open and someone ran in. "Can you hear me? Can you open your eyes?" It was a boy's voice. He didn't sound very old. I tried to open my eyes and manage to do so. I see a reindeer looking at me. However, this is quite normal in the Grand Line. "Good. I'm Chopper. I'm a doctor. This is Nami. You've already met her. You're in a very bad condition. Will you let me take care of you?"


I don't know why, maybe it was Nami, but I trust these people, so I nod. I feel a needle prick my arm and Chopper sighs with relief. "Okay, all done. You need to rest." I hum and let myself fall asleep.


Next time I wake up, my head is no longer pounding and I am alone. I decide to get up and walk out of the room. My legs are covered in bruises and scratches. My muscles and bones are aching. I can barely walk. Even though it hurts, I use the wall to walk over to the door and I open it.


I'm on a ship! These guys are pirates and not just any pirates. These guys are the Strawhats. I only know who their captain is, so I didn't recognize anyone else.


No longer having the wall to support me, I fall down. All eyes are on me. Chopper runs towards me as I sit up against the door frame. Everyone else walks over to me as Chopper starts to examine me. They stand around me in a circle. I look at their captain, standing in front of me right in the middle of the circle. I can already tell that his crew has respect for him.


"Monkey D. Luffy. Captain of the Strawhat Pirates. You don't seem as scary as everyone makes you out to be."


"Shishishi, nope. Call me Luffy. Are you okay?"


"Yeah, I'm fine." However, my body betrays me when I try to get up, unsuccessfully.


"You don't look fine to me."


Instead of replying, I roll up my pants while wincing from the pain. Looking at my legs, covered in bruises, scratches, and scars, Nami gasps, "Oh my God," and Chopper runs off.


I look at Nami. "I didn't think you were a pirate."


"Yeah, I'm the navigator." 


"I'm Captain Usopp!! I have 8000 followers!!"


"I'm Zoro. I'm a swordsman. He's lying, he's a sniper." 


"I'm Robin. I'm an archaeologist."


"I'm Franky, the shipwright."


"I'm Brook, the musician."


Chopper comes back with a blue bag and smiles. "I'm the ship's doctor."


"I'm Sanji, the cook. What's your name, beautiful maiden???"


Looking at all of them, I can see that, if needed, I would not be able to take them in a fight. I'm easily shorter than all of them, except Chopper, with my 5'3" height. They're lean and muscled, while I'm so skinny that I'm very weak. I have no muscle, not to mention my bodies in terrible condition and I don't actually know how to fight.


Realizing all of this, I become a little more timid. "I-I'm Hannah."


Chopper plops down beside me, now finished examining  my legs. "You shouldn't walk for a while."


I close my eyes and lean my head against the doorframe. Thinking about my past, I start to cry and a tear slips out from my closed eyes. I feel a soft thumb across my cheek, wiping off the tear. It was Sanji. He wraps his arm around me to pick me up, but once his hand touched my back, I winced. Sanji immediately pulls back. "Are you okay?"


I avoid his worried eyes and whisper, "My-my back."


He looks at everyone behind him with an almost scared look, as if afraid of what he would see. He looks me in the eyes, obviously asking for permission and I slightly nod. I turn around so my back is facing him and I move my hair to one shoulder, out of the way. He takes the hem of my shirt and slowly lifts it up.


I hear multiple gasps, a couple of curses, and an animalistic growl from Sanji. My back is covered in scars from a whip. Some old, others very recent and still sensitive and red. I feel his hand slowly and gently touch the scars. Once his fingers run over the newest once, I flinch.


"Does it hurt?"


I nodded, brand new tears coming at the reminder of the pain. He lowers my shirt back down and I turn back around. After looking in my eyes, he lightly sets his hand on the top of my head and ruffles my hair slightly. He picks me up, now careful of my back, and starts walking, everyone following behind. He sets me down on a bench and everyone sits around me.


I silently thought, 'Story time.'


Confirming my thoughts, Luffy asks, "What happened to you? Why were you on the ground passed out? Who did that to you?"


I sigh. "I'm a slave. A while back, someone came into the town where I lived. Using force, he took over. Made everyone slaves. His lackeys work us all day, beat us when they feel like, and even make us fight each other for food. They killed my parents. Right in front of me. My best friend, my only friend, was sold. I don't even know if he's alive. I couldn't take it anymore, so I ran away. Freezing and exhausted, I tripped and passed out. I woke up here." I force myself to contain my tears.


Franky asks, "How old are you?"


I reply, "I'm seventeen."


Robin asks, "How long ago was your town enslaved?"

 

"A-About seven years."


Luffy's eyes narrowed. "You were enslaved when you were ten?"


I nod and Luffy's eyes narrow further, his eyebrows furrowed. He turns and walks away, sitting on the lion head. Sanji sighs, gets up, and smiles. "I'll make something for you to eat. You're probably hungry."


Nami, seeing I needed time alone, makes everyone leave and she leaves as well.


After that, I closed my eyes and leaned against the wall behind me, thinking about what to do next. What seems like seconds later, I hear Sanji call my name. He hands me a plate of food and sits down.


At first, I just stare at it, thinking about all the slaves back home starving. Sanji looks over at me and sighs. "Hannah, it's okay. Eat."


I look at him, then to the food. Deciding I didn't want to be mean, I took a bite. I look at Sanji with my eyes wide in shock. "It's amazing. Th-Thank you." He smiles and gets up, leaving me alone to eat.


As I eat, I watch the others. They all walked over to Luffy and he came down off the lion head. They looked like they were having a meeting.


Third POV


The Strawhat Pirates form a small circle to discuss the runaway slave sitting on the bench, slowly eating.


Chopper rests his hooves on his chin, deep in thought. "She's in bad condition. She probably won't be able to walk for a few days. Not to mention the metal affect all of this has had on her."


Sanji looks like he's about to cry or destroy something. "I can't believe what they did to her."


Nami nods. "Yeah, I want to help."


Luffy giggles. "I was already planning on it."


Zoro smirks. "I knew it. Let's help the poor thing."


First POV


As I'm watching the others, they suddenly look over to the island.
I follow their gaze and see people walking towards the ship. I hear Luffy say, "Who are they?" As they get closer, I realize those are the people the master sent to find me. Scared, I dropped the empty plate and it landed on the ground. Everyone looks towards me, wondering what happened.


It only takes me a second to realize what I have to do.


They will hurt Luffy and the others. I can't let that happen.


Luffy walks closer to me. "Hannah, are they-"


Trying to hide my fear, I interrupt, "Yes. Thanks for all that you've done for me, but I don't want to cause you any trouble. I'll just go back."


I slowly stand up. However, when I take my first step, I fall. I try to get back up, but just fall again. Luffy clenches his fists and looks at me, anger and sadness all over his face. "Hannah, stop. I can see how scared you are. You're not going anywhere. Sanji, will you take her back to Chopper's room?"


He nods and starts walking towards me. My fear takes over and large, uncontrollable sobs take over my body.  Sanji picks me up and starts walking, still careful of my back. I grip his arm and he pushes my face into his shirt, trying to muffle my pain-filled cries so they don't hear me.


Sanji opens the door and walks in, closing the door behind him, and sits down on the bed. Sitting me in his lap, he hugs me and starts rocking me, repeating, "Shhh," over and over again with his smooth voice.


I calm down just enough to hear the master's lackeys walk onto the ship and ask, "Have you seen a girl with brown hair and brown eyes?"


Nami replies, using her acting skills.  "No, why?"


"She ran off and we can't find her."


No one says anything for awhile. They're probably snooping around the ship.


"Okay, we'll be leaving then. However, if we find out she is here, you'll wish you gave her up."


Frightened, I grip Sanji tighter.


"Hannah, look at me."


I lean back just enough to look at him.


"I didn't realize you had brown eyes. They're beautiful."


I smile, somehow forgetting about the people searching for me, and yawn. Sanji laughs. "Hannah, get some sleep. You've been through a lot." He lays me down, covering me with a blanket, and leaves.


When I wake up, it's dark out. Remembering what the man said, I decided it would be best to leave. No matter how scared I was or what Luffy had said. I couldn't cause these guys trouble.


Even though my legs are still in bad condition, I force them to work and walk towards the door. I quietly open the door and look around to see if anyone's outside. The coast is clear, so I walk out, quietly closing the door behind me. Looking around one more time, I head to the ladder.


Once I reached the ladder, I started to climb down. However, I spotted Zoro up at the lookout. I froze. If he saw me, it would all be over. He would come down and stop me. However, at closer inspection, he was asleep. Shaking my head, I continued climbing down the ladder. When I hit the ground, I began running, ignoring the pain in my legs. Once my town comes into view, I slow down and I feel my fear growing. However, I keep walking.


Third POV


Nami wakes up and decides to check on Hannah. When she opens the door, she is not there. Scared, she wakes everyone up, telling them Hannah is gone. They all get ready and start heading towards the town. However, it's too late.


First POV


Once I reached the gate the guards restrained me and lead me to the master's house. They push me into a room and the master enters.


Third POV


The Strawhats are now running when lights start to come into view.

 

Zoro says, "That must be her town."


Robin nods.


Nami's face is flushed with anger and worry as she yells, "Zoro, she wouldn't have gotten away if you wouldn't have fallen asleep on the job! You were supposed to make sure she didn't leave!"


First POV


The master walks towards me with a very angry look on his face. "Did you think you could get away?! No one escapes me! You're a slave and you belong to me!" He slaps me as hard as he can. The force knocking me onto the ground. He uses my new position against me, kicking me repeatedly.


Third POV


Reaching the gates, Nami, Brook, and Chopper fend of the guards, letting the rest continue. Another group comes, trying to take out the intruders. This time Franky, Usopp, and Robin keep them busy. Luffy, Sanji, and Zoro continue.


First POV


Now against the wall, the master stops kicking me. Instead, he grabs my hair slamming me against the wall. I can feel myself losing consciousness. However, I try to fight it off, determined to fight.


Third POV


They finally reach the master's house. However, there are guards at the door. Zoro and Sanji start fighting and tell Luffy to continue.


First POV


After slamming me against the wall again, the master grabs the whip from his belt getting ready to hit me. "Have you had enough yet? What are you? Are you my slave?!"


"Y-Yes."


"Yes? Yes what?"


"Yes, I'm your s-slave."


The master laughs again. He pulls his arm back and I realize he's going to hit me anyway. I close my eyes, knowing this will hurt more than anything else.


It doesn't come.


I open my eyes and see Luffy. He grabbed the master's wrist preventing him from hitting me. Luffy looks at me, anger and worry in his eyes and growls, "No, Hannah. You're not a slave. You're my friend!"


He attacks the master, completely overpowering him. I sit up a little, watching Luffy.


The others walk through the door.


Having lost a lot of blood, I fall over, closing my eyes. I feel Chopper put his hoof on my forehead. "Luffy! Hannah needs treatment immediately! She's burning up too. We need to get her to a bed."


I feel arms go under me and pick me up. I wince, it hurts so bad. The pain I felt before was nothing compared to this. I open my eyes just enough to see that the person carrying me is Luffy. I close my eyes again. "L-Luffy. I-I'm sorry."


Luffy sounds worried. "Everything's fine. You're going to be fine, but you have to stay awake! You have to be strong."


Strong. I want to be strong. Strong like Luffy. Strong enough to protect everyone I love.


I hear a door open and Luffy lays me down on something. It's soft. It must be a bed. He walks out, Chopper's order. Chopper starts to treat my wounds.


I can't help it and I begin to cry. I caused them so much trouble.


Chopper lays a hoof on my hand. "You know, Hannah, everyone agreed to help you. We all wanted to. Especially Luffy."


I must have said that last part out loud.

 

Curious, I ask why.


"Luffy's like that. Once he finds someone he likes, he has to help them. Everyone else likes you too."


I sigh. "But all I did was cause trouble."


Luffy walks in and walks over to the bed. "Hannah, like I said earlier, you're my friend. In fact, we're all your friends. That's why."


Finally running out of energy, I pass out.


When I wake up, I'm covered in bandages. I can barely move, but I manage to sit up. Luffy walks in. He smiles at me. "Hey! You're awake. It's been a couple of days. You were out of it."


I move my am to a more comfortable position, moaning in the process. "Woah, are you okay?"


"No, it hurts like hell."

 

Luffy laughs, then becomes very serious. "Hannah, your town is free. You're free. However, what are you gonna do now? Will you join my crew?"

 

My mouth opens in shock.


"Your crew!?" Luffy laughs at my schock, a huge grin on his face.


"Yeah. Why not? What do ya say?"


I think it over for a minute. What he said is true. My parents are gone. My best friend is gone. I don't have anyone to care for me. I have nothing to do here. Plus, I've always wanted to travel.


"Yes, I'll join your crew."
