The sound of water sloshing surrounded the mangrove trees that the harbour was attached too, sturdy old wood either nailed or tightly tied to the massive roots of the massive trees that were surrounding the island. The weather was hot, humid with a slight easterly breeze that carried the salt of the sea air through the massive trees. Sat at the end of one of the piers was a lone purple haired girl who was still wearing her jacket despite the heat and humid air. Upon closer inspection, it was a young woman moping alone, staring out at the ocean before her doing nothing but thinking. Listening to the world move on around her as she did so. Atop of her head was a pair of wolf like ears that started to droop down as time went on. From under the jacket poked out a fluffy wolfs tail that curled around her body and rested on her lap, letting her pet and stroke it absent maimedly.
Under the jacket was a simple pink and white striped strapless bikini, not that it did the half breed any good, she was not going to go for a swim anytime soon. In her general area was a deep blue glow that radiated from the idol, it shimmered every now and then as a new though ran through the young lady’s head from time to time. The day was beautiful… a perfect tropical day on the grand line and for some reason this half mink was so sad.
It was approaching lunch time now and the midday sun was over the canopy of the mangrove island letting glimmers of light speckle the barren dock area and the lone woman sitting on it. In the distance, there were sounds of work and play as the coaters of the guild did their job and the few shipwrights of the island worked on their boats. It was just a normal day on this less than normal island… well to Sparkles at least.
Twitch… her left ear moved…
Twitch twich, this time it was both of her ears.
In the next few moments a few things happened. Firstly an oversized net slammed over the depressed girl. Then the hurrahs of two men simultaneously sounded behind her, thinking they had caught the half human by surprise. Which was followed by a squeaking sound coming from one of them as the net was pulled back, trying to scoop the captured target up only to find that the net was not there anymore and the pole had melted away for some reason. Then their target slowly turned her head to look at the idiots.
“Do you need something?” She asked, not registering their attempt at kidnap. It really was kind of pathetic really, the men… who were probably experienced in this business used one of the most cliché tactics in the catching people book.
“N-no Ma’am… we just wanted to s-see if your ears and tail were real.” The bigger and greasier of the men spluttered out as he through the burning wooden pole away. The splash barely audible to normal ears but loud and clear to the woman with wolf sense. “Y-you are Sp-Sparkles right? The pop star? W-we heard rumours of your extras… but never thought they were real.” He added to try and cement his lie, at least he knew who the woman he had tried to snag in a net was.
The multi coloured orbs of eyes looked down to the water to see the singed pole clattering against the dock they were on and then back to the pair of men, the smaller one seemed to have a wet patch on his shorts for some reason and the big greasy one looked flustered and shocked that his plan had failed. “I suppose you also heard that I am also a bounty hunter?” She asked sounded sad as she did, but she shifted and climbed so she was stood up. “One with amazing power?” She asked, her sad expression getting a twitch of a frown and the red colour she was emitting shifted to be purple. “And that you also heard i'm not in the mood to deal with idiots?!” She shouted out as her hand started to glow with a purple plasma and shifted into the shape of a drill, the pulsing of the material that was now there made it look as if it were spinning and the dry Hawaiian shirt of the man in front caught fire just by being so close to the deadly midget.
“Y-yes!” the second one said as he turned to run away. Sparkles right fist impacted into his partners gut and after what felt like an eternity of her tiny hand digging into his gut and twisting he was sent flying away at full speed and the drill was pointed at the runner. A small beam fired and grazed his left leg making the man stumble as the damp dirt a few feet in front of him suddenly got very dry… maybe a bit smouldering.
“Leave me alone.” Kit said as she returned to being sat on the edge with her small legs kicking over the edge, nowhere near the water below.
