Chapter 1400: Side Story: Do you know what you are talking about?
After 30 years of development, the biggest change for the sea is that the four seas are also connected to the sea trains. Of course, it is only local. Several kingdoms with large land areas will connect the ports to the sea trains and achieve rapid transport.
But for others, except for living in abundance, the development is not very big.
The world is too big. The new World Government has only been established for 30 years and even the capitalist aristocracy has not been completely eliminated. Everything is still a long way away.
East Blue’s Roguetown, compared to 30 years ago, other than the renovation of the buildings and the expansion of the town’s area, there were no revolutionary changes.
This place is still the port town that people who are eager to enter the Grand Line often come to, but from a large number of pirates in the past, it has become a large number of adventurers… and a small number of unknown pirates.
In the undeveloped area behind Roguetown, a Pirate Ship slowly approached.
A captain pulled out his knife and gave orders to the pirates around him. “Little ones, after landing, hurry up and grab it. You must be fast. This way, Marines will not be able to catch up with us. After grabbing the supplies, we will go to the Grand Line!”
However, the pirates looked worried. One of the pirates said, “But Captain… that’s Logue Town, the place with the most East Blue Marines, and there is also Kro, the Marine. Why don’t we go somewhere else?”
Pirates nowadays are not as prosperous as they were more than 30 years ago. They are like street rats, but there are still people who are willing to be pirates. After all, the gap is only 30 years, and the existence of pirates has been maintained for a long time, even before the World Government was established.
This cannot be put an end to. There are always people who don’t want to live a stable life and walk this path for wealth, freedom, or other miscellaneous reasons.
This Captain is one of them.
“What’s wrong with Crowe! He knows that we will land from the back of Roguetown. As long as we grab it fast, he won’t be able to react at all. At that time, his reputation will increase!”
The thought of him fooling that Cunning Fox made the captain excited. This was a good opportunity to become famous.
After all, Roguetown is under his rule and it is said that no pirate will escape!
The ship gradually approached the shallow land of Roguetown. In front of it was a jungle. In this place, basically no one would come.
Those stupid Marines would only place their defensive forces on the town’s port side. How could they notice this deserted place?
“Little ones, disembark and rob!”
When the ship approached land, the captain jumped down with his knife.
Bang bang bang!!
However, the moment they came down, there was an inexplicable gunshot, followed by more gunshots. The pirates around the captain were shot one by one and fell to the ground wailing.
The captain widened his eyes and shouted in panic, “What’s going on! What’s going on!”
Soon, countless white figures rushed out of the jungle. They were Marines in uniforms, holding guns and knives, forming a semicircle.
“Marines?! How can it be! You are lying in ambush here!”
“Isn’t this normal…”
A faint voice came from the Marine and a man wearing a Marine cloak walked out. This man was tall and straight, wearing a monocle on his clean face and a white top hat on his head. He looked very gentlemanly.
He spun his arm in the air a few times and then put it on his chest. He bowed slightly and gave a standard gentleman’s bow before saying:
“There are so many cannons in Roguetown’s port, pirates with eyes won’t stop there. If you can think of this floor, then as ‘Cunning Fox’, I will certainly think of this floor.”
With that, he reached out and gently pressed down. “Shoot.”
With the sound of the gunshot, the captain was shot several times and fell down.
The gentleman Marine smiled and said to the corpse, “In the end, how can a pirate like a mouse think of breaking in from the front…”
At the civilian port of Roguetown, a Pirate Ship with an ordinary skull flag docked at the port under the strange eyes of the people in the port.
“Ah! We’re finally here!”
A bald man came out of the dock and shouted loudly with his arms outstretched, attracting the attention of many people. However, the bald man who looked bright in the sun was like a big light bulb. At that moment, it seemed to blind them and they closed their eyes one by one.
When he opened his eyes again, there was no one there.
“Let’s go find the execution platform!”
On the street in front of the pier, the shiny bald head rushed forward excitedly and soon disappeared into the crowd.
“Hey, wait! You are a sea…”
Victoria, who was wearing a hooded cloak, reached out to stop him, but she couldn’t see him. She said angrily, “What’s wrong with this guy? He has always been so unruly!”
Mimir said, “Not really, but Captain doesn’t have a bounty yet. Strictly speaking, he is not a pirate. He can run however he wants. Only you are a bounty.”
Victoria shouted, “Ah ah ah! Don’t say such a panic-inducing thing! Also, why did you park the boat on the front? Isn’t it easier to find? Didn’t you say you would take the back?!”
Mimir shrugged and said, “Colonel Cunning Fox, who is stationed in Rogue Town, is a smart man. If we can think of avoiding the port, how can he not think of it? So it is best to enter directly.”
“In addition, although we have the Pirate Flag, no one else has a bounty except you. As long as we hide well, even if others see us, they will only think that we are playing role-playing.”
With that, he sighed. “Do you think it’s an era where people will panic when they see a Pirate Flag 30 years ago? That time is long gone. Now, they treat the Pirate Flag as a new strange item. Not many people are afraid.”
“I know this.”
Victoria certainly knows what this era is like now, so she doesn’t think there’s anything good about being a pirate, but the key is that she has already boarded the pirate ship and she is the first one to be wanted. If that damn baldy says that he doesn’t want to be a pirate anymore, then she can only hang herself.
“Then be careful!”
Victoria regrouped. “Mimir, go and find out some information and see if there are any suitable people to recruit. Sia, buy supplies, I’ll go find our Captain Baldy!”
Mimir nodded. “It’s right to be careful. As long as it doesn’t attract attention, then…”
“Hey! Where is the execution platform! Tell me quickly, I want to go there to take a look and then set off to become the Pirate King!!”
Suddenly, a familiar voice not far away made them collectively freeze and turn their heads to look in that direction.
The shiny bald man was shouting with a group of Marines on the street.
“This idiot!” The three of them said together.
Who tells people that they are going to be a pirate, and the target is Marine!
In front of the bald man, the Marine leader turned around silently, and the moment he turned around, the sweat on Mimir’s face flowed down.
“That guy is…” Mimir’s mouth twitched. “He can’t be that unlucky, right?”
The Marine was wearing a monocle and his clothes were very decent and clean. He looked like a gentleman and was wearing a Marine cloak.
Monocle, Marine cloak… In Roguetown, only one person would dress like this.
Marine Captain in Roguetown, nicknamed “Cunning Fox” Lyle Crowe!
He is not just a Marine Captain stationed in Rogetown. There are so many branch Captains in the world, but Rogetown is an exception, or East Blue is an exception.
There have been many heroes here in the past, and there was also a figure who ruled the world—Luciru Kuro.
As the biggest transit point between the East China Sea and the Grand Line, the town of Roguetown, guarding here is to guard the gate and prevent any dangerous people from entering the Grand Line and killing them in the cradle.
Moreover, he, Lyle Crowe, was a subordinate of that Lord.
Crowe is proud of this. Although his surname is different, his name is exactly the same as the World Government Chief of Staff. The Chief of Staff is also his superior, and his superior is a famous Marine Vice-Admiral, Basil Kuro!
That’s the same name as Savior!
He guarded the gate of his faction leader in the largest faction and naturally did his best and did not dare to make any mistakes.
Since he came to Roguetown, basically no pirate will be able to set off after landing in Roguetown.
But now, someone actually asked him where the execution platform is, and… he wants to be Pirate King?
Crowe turned around and the first thing he saw was the shiny bald head. He subconsciously blinked and asked directly without seeing the person’s face:
“Do you know what you are talking about?”
