"Talking" 'Thinking' Dreams


21 years ago...

'She had just arrived at a new island. She could smell the oak trees being engulfed in new flames. She knew all too well of fires. How they destroyed everything she cared for and how Saul froze to death by that marine with devil fruit abilities. The fresh memories still burnt fresh into her mind.

Nico Robin was nine years at the time. She has arrived at too many islands wanting her head. She never felt safe anywhere with the Seventy-Nine-million Beli bounty following her, ensuring her darkness.

In due time the fire died down. She searched island making sure of any human survival. Once her search was completed, she concluded that there were no survivors. She observed that most of the villager didn't die because of the fire. Instead it looked more like deep sword slashes to the chest mostly. The island seemed very civilized except how gruesome the deaths were.

Robin knew that she needed rest, for her luck food and clothes were an abundance, and that no bounty hunter inhabited the land. She decided to spend three days on the new land. Making sure not to grow accustomed to the island. The risk being that the marines finding the island and her with fair ease, then her not having the best escape route.

The young archaeologist abruptly stopped when she spotted a girl resting next a tree. Robin was sure that she checked every inch of the land and not completely burnt houses. The girl looked just about the same age as Robin and seemed alive. She had fiery crimson hair that rivaled the island flames from not long ago. Her limbs were long but, you could tell that they had fierce feminine strength behind them. Her long wisps spiky hair seemed that it over her left eye intentionally. Maybe to cover a scar or for a rebellious look. She had a long sword strapped to her back, it was probably to long for the girl to carry at the waist.

The girl abruptly opened her eyes, seeming like somehow she sensed Robin's presence. "Who are you?" The girl said in a scratchy voice, the cause might be crying for long periods of time. Robin could see the sorrow and exhaustion clouding the girls violet hues, the strong color not clashing with her scarlet hair.

"Nico Robin." she responded politely.

"Oh so you're the girl who everyone been up in arms about," She concluded, eyeing Robin.

"You don't look like a devil to me." the girl said while changing positions. Once Robin heard this she swiftly backed away and got into her attack position. This new action caused the girl to let out a croaky laugh. "I'm not after your bounty or anything like that" she croaked out. Robin sensed that she had no under handed attempt, and soon her hands went to her sides. "My name is Kaze." she said her voice clearer than before. "Let's go" the crimson haired girl said. Robin decided against asking Kaze whether she murdered the villagers. For the question might cause a falling out between them.

The latter walked in silence, only the foul stench of ash and blood surrounded them. Robin never let down her guard, unsure to trust this mysterious girl on this burned island 'Where is she taking me?'

"It's getting dark, there is a clearing up ahead." Kaze said not bothering to look back. A clearing up ahead, no that could not be correct. Robin didn't see or notice one.

"That can't be right, I scouted the entire island" Robin thought aloud.

"You were not able to see it, this part of the land is protected by a barrier. Kaze stated a matter- a-factually.

"What type of barrier" the raven haired girl asked, with her curiosity peaked. Kaze stopped dead in her tracks.

"A-a demonic one…" the crimson haired girl responded hesitantly.

"W-what?" was all Robin could muster in her state of shock.'

Present Time (A/N: Post Time-Skip)

Robin's eyes opened abruptly a cold sweat dripping down her forehead, her azure hues unfocused on the light blue and orange light peering through the window. A new day on the Thousand Sunny had arrived. 'Why was I having that dream' Robin questioned herself. She was glad that she got a well needed nights rest. This has not occurred for her in a while. Her usual nightmares of Ohara's buster call flashing before her eyes while trying to slumber, she was glad but why that particular memory?

The raven haired archaeologist quickly took a shower and got dressed, the strange dream had left her quite shaken. Once she was done with her morning preparations, she left the women's cabin with an unread novel in hand. She could tell that she woke early, one Sanji wasn't cooking the breakfast for the crew. The second is that she could still see the vibrant red and orange splotches darting the baby blue sky with a calming breeze. A truly breath taking sight to behold. Soon she found a comfortable place on the lawn deck with a blanket and hot cup of coffee.

As Robin was reading her book, her thoughts were wandering off with each sentence. 'The Mayan culture was known for their... Why did I have that dream? A demonic barrier? Yes that is what she said. Her name... Kaze, yes Kaze. Who are you Kaze?' The raven haired woman let herself be completely enveloped in thought. She had scarlet hair in a fashion that covered her left eye, violet eyes that held such bottled up sorrow and fatigue that made even Robin want to hug her, and a long sword strapped to her back. The way she was positioned on the trunk of the tree reminded her of a certain swordsman.

The way he always slept anywhere with no fear and always appear to be in a deep sleep but, just as alert as if he was awake, caused her to admire him more. The way he would wake up with a drowsy eyes and a little yawn. Robin always found this cute. She had a little crush on the swordsman for some time. Mostly after what happened at Skypiea.

"Robin-swan~" Sanji cooed not bothering to be quiet. Quickly coming back from her thoughts Robin answered with a polite smile. "I brought you a hot new fresh cup of coffee." Coffee, no she still had her... Robin's though train trailed off as she noticed her coffee was now almost cold.

"Thank you Sanji." The raven haired said while flashing one more of her smile. That action practically melted the cook, and he mumbling something the archaeologist couldn't decipher.

Once the cook picked himself off the floor and started to make the Strawhat's first meal. Slowly the rest of the crew members emerged out of their cabins with Zoro being the last. After everyone said their respective greeting, breakfast commenced. Usopp and Chopper were the first one to finish their meals, courtesy of the captain stealing most of their food.

"Usopp look!" the shocked reindeer shrieked. The sound of Chopper's scream was loud enough for the rest to come out onto the deck. The Strawhats peered over the Thousand Sunny and the sight astounded them. A scarlet haired woman, who appeared dead, in a simple row boat.

"Guys pull her in now!" Chopper ordered in doctor mode. Sanji, and Franky quickly pulled in the mysterious woman onto the Sunny. Once they had her the in the sick bay, Chopper made everyone leave to properly examine the woman. Her hair was covering her left eye. He brushed away the spiky hair to get a better look at her face. This was the worst injury he has seen. Her left eye looked like someone had no remorse when in fights. It would have looked like Zoro's, but the only difference was the scorn behind them.

'Who was this woman and what exactly happened to her?' Were the only questions racing in the young doctor's mind.
