1 Opression of Menshoo. Eliminating war asset on Thu Jan 22, 2015 12:11 pm

Menshoo Kingdom 6:30am

A buzzing sound alarms throughout the entire Kingdom signaling  the end of curfew and the start of the work day.  For most homes of the kingdom they would send one member to the mines until they met their quota for the day.   With sounding of the buzzer dozens of men woman and children of all ages headed down a worn out stone path that passed the gallows, a golden statue of the king, and a marble stone drenched in dry blood.  Pikes serving as decorative fence held the heads of those sentenced to death most recently a pirate crew but the skulls of revolutionaries still remained.  In the mines they would suffer back grueling work and dangerous conditions.  Not all families were blessed with young healthy people do the labor some families only had one person they could send and day after day they worked in these mines until the day they died.

The revolutionary army had been watching this country for awhile and had sent agent here before.  The people were so afraid that they had turned in the revolutionaries and had been awarded handsomely.  Those who spread messages against the king had been rounded up and the dissident publically executed.  With great care they had inserted Mickey into the country.  He had been taken in as the nephew to an elderly couple.  They got someone strong to work for them as well as financial compensation.  But more importantly they had hope.  The couple had both had family members killed at the hands of the royal guard and currently their daughter was missing and presumed dead, which was still odd because punishments were traditionally public.

Heading out with the rest of the group he had been able to switch his shorts out for pants but still had to where his sandals.  Boots where considered luxury items and even though it was better for mining not people where able buy them.  In order to better blend in Mickey went without.

The mine was a large area with many tunnels.  During this time of day most soldiers were here or the ground of the palace.  Everything was closely monitored in ordered to prevent theft of tools as well as materials.  After a quick frisking from one of the guards Mickey stepped on to the first open scale. Taking note of his weight, name, and residence he represented.  He was handed his tools and assigned a mine.  But it was always the same.

“Well dam your luck be rotten, you got lucky number seven again.”

Mickey was easily one of the most recognized figures around the new comer who had immigrated just to help great aunt and uncle.  Who was blessed with strength that allowed him to mine quickly.  He was also a large target of abuse from the soldiers and those who ran the mine.  His equipment was the worst they had and sometimes he wouldn’t get assigned a fool set. Mine #7 was the most dangerous of all the mines and should have been closed years ago.  Even for the most experienced worker it was normally a one way ticket but it produced the best raw materials.

Giving a slight half smile he responded briskly “Rotten luck perhaps, but if I come out of it I give get an increased wage.”  Rolling his eyes the man dismissed him.

The task:

A burst of cheering could be heard form the shore of the Kingdom of Menshoo. A roar of adventurelust could be heard from a man who dressed in black.

"Yoooowooo, ZELL is here"

Zell, the Captain of Hellfire Pirates, who was struck by a terrible hunger landed on the south shore of the kingdom. He sneaked past the soldiers by using small boat from their man ship as the other crew mates making their first vacation on the deck of the ship. They wouldn't join Zell in his crazy starving games.

For most it was a normal day in the peaceful kingdom of Menshoo, Light was pouring down, as it was quite often, the skies were filled with mild white clouds, and soft winds would make the leaves at the shore dance on the air. Many people said that Menshoo was not the most ideal location for a kingdom, and even less for marine headquarters. So, Zell was in the mood to land on Menshoo. In the shore of the land, with only hours of sailing to reach other islands around it, Menshoo was a great location to serve as temporary pirate camp.

Rumors had been filling the ports of Menshoo for the past few hours. A pirate was spotted on the horizon, but they lost them easily after the sunlight blocked their scope's vision. Rumors were flying from left to right, and everyone had big expectations of the guards, that was send to help out, capture the new criminal in the region.

Many people were shocked to see someone dressed in a dark clothes as Zell marched around the town while covering his head by a hood. Being used to talk like that, Zell just ignored the gossips that had been going on for a while. As an aspiring captain, Zell's pocket wasn't filled by many coins but only few coins to buy a drink. Zell went to the market as he planned. A few steps later,

Ring - a - ding - Ring - a - Ding- Ring - A ding.

''Gotcha''

''This is Captain Zell in'' uhm what was it, he thought to himself as he quickly reached to some newspapers, and continued ''Menshoo Kingdom '' ''Captain Birch, please bring us a couple of meats, I will cook the, for you" His men was crying for meats as they starved. Zell ignored their requests after they denied Zell's request to accompany him around the kingdom.
Suddenly, A Kind, but serious woman voice sounded from a dark alley.
''Hey, you! What are you doing here? You should change your clothes, I bet you're a pirate. Here, let me lend you this''

Zell was about to answer, as he stresfully looked into the clothes,dirty full-body clothes with bright colors, not Zell's taste. Was this really necessary? he wondered. He turned to thanks the woman, but the woman was gone. After chaning his clothes, he stepped towards an open place and continued on the hunt for food.

A guard came and shouted at him,

"You, what are you doing here? Are you running from your duty?"

"But, I'm.. Me.. Ah.."

The guard dragged Zell to a mine, and Zell realized that he had the same clothes as the miner around.

"You are assigned at the Mine #7." A man spoke at him and gave him tools. What for?

"Hmm.. Which way?" Zell innocently asked the man for direction.

"Are you fucking kidding me? Go now!!" Zell without making any fight, followed the order of the man and planned to run away after he finished the task. He entered the damp cave. With heavy heart, he tramped around the mine #7. In a certain corner, he was pissed off and punched the wall of the cave, giving a small shake around the cave.

He noticed a man marched towards Zell's area, Zell with his sharp eyes, glared at the man, trying to intimidate him.

[[OOC: Sorry for the long post, I think (?). This is just an intro post, to give insights about Zell]]

Inside mine

Inside mine #7 it was much cooler than the outside. The magma man may not take notice of this. From the caves mouth the single lantern shared by the pair inside was hard to see and was only growing harder by the moment. Further in the cave ice pillars were strategically placed giving support the tunnel. Soon the pair would be out of site but the quiet echoing of their steps and voice would carry so they would be careful until they were deeper.

“How much do you think we need to save up?” Brutus had given Mickey his lantern since he knew the caves better than anyone he felt confident enough that he didn’t need the extra light as much.

“There is no set amount you got to have the stock to see this through.” Now far enough from the mouth of the cave he continued. “Your efforts are working there hasn’t been an execution for awhile now. My job is coming to a close. It’s going to be time for that… “

Stopping suddenly Brutus looked at younger man, Brutus’ face was wrinkled tired yet strong. He held so much experience. “The people aren’t ready. I have only reached a small amount of them. I’m still not convinced this is the right action.

Angered Mickey raised an icy palm and smacked the man. “This isn’t some game. This is your country if you can’t convince your people it’s your own dam fault. I am not here for that. If time the time comes and they put you the cross and don’t take up their own. I’ll leave without a seconds thought.”
Hearing they weren’t alone they removed their pick axes from their belts.

Outside mine

“Who was that you just sent into seven? I don’t recognize him at all.” The soldier who had found Zell walking around town escorted all the way into reaching the mine.

“I’m not really sure. He had Miranda’s work card and her husband had bought them a uniform just about four years ago. He was wearin it.”

“There hasn’t been an incident report on seven for awhile now. Even with Brutus working on it that’s pretty dam odd. Get me the info on seven.” The mines clerk handed the file the soldier.

Shaking his head as he looked through the file he went the mines office to use the Den Den mushi

Zell picked a pickaxe, he didn't know what to do inside the mine. You knew that he's a pirate, no way a pirate would do such work unless a mysterious treasure hidden inside the mine. Nah, but it would be impossible. Zell who ignored everything, leaned on the wall while crossing his arms on his chest. His playful side came to the surface, glaring at his hand, he turned his right palm into a lava. With slow movement, he tapped at the wall of the cave. The magma burnt through the outer layer of the wall, but he stopped it until he realized he could threaten his own life.

As Zell scanned the area with his dark eyes, he noticed that there were ice pillars. Why there would be ice pillars inside mines? He thought for a few minutes, until he realized the answer and muttered it, "Devil Fruit user. No other answers". He shivered from imagining user since Ice is the ultimate rival of his devil fruit's power. The tranquility shattered as soon as Zell saw a light came from the area in front, Zell raised his eyebrows and raised his guard up. With slow steps, he crept to the source of the light, hardly making any noise until he kicked a certain stone that rolled fast to a dark corner.

Zell knew that the light holder noticed him, so, Zell decided to appear, no need to hide. The cape of Zell was the one that appeared first before his leg and upper body followed after.

"Gentlemen. I know that you can be useful for me. From your appearance, I bet you're a veteran, right?. I'm sick of this mine, help me to sneak out from this creepy mine. I don't want to rage here, either." stated Zell with his eyes closed.

[[OOC: Sorry for the late reply. I had some duty to finish on Sunday]]

Both of the men were surprised by the man’s sudden entrance just as much as they were shocked by his attire. He was clearly not a guard they never came this deep in if at all. They might have thought him to be staff they were one of the few people always had jumpsuits, but this guy wore a cape. It was more than a bit dangerous to wear a cape inside a mine. Everything about him gave clue to the fact that he wasn’t from this island. It was also a wonder how he came to end working at the mine. Out of caution they both started to work as the man spoke. Mickey was the first to find his words. “Well if you’re tired already why not go out, the same way you came in?” Turning to Brutus he whispered something into his ears before he hesitantly walked away. “You don’t want to rage in hear? Is that like how a child throws a fit?” Mickey smirked playfully.

The steady sound of a pick axe filled the air with brief pauses as Brutus moved place to place.

Outside
Soldiers gather and wait at mouth of mine #7. A team of mine staff member gather wearing the best equipment they have. Most of their safety tools had never used or even seen by the civilians who actually worked inside the mine. “Hurry the fuck when they leave we are going in straight away.”

“Judging by how long they normally take we still have time before they are finished. Any word yet on that new guy?”

“We have rounded the woman whose card she used. They are bringing her to stocks now. We will get the truth out of her no matter what.”

“Don’t just stop there. Keep Brutus’ house under watch but don’t approach his wife yet.”

Captain Roswald stood in freshly polished gear. An eager grin on his face showed his excitement for what was about to happen next. Things had been to quiet this was just the sort thing that he had been looking forward to. In the town Jean brought the woman and not without care she brought the old woman in. Kindly she spoke her and comforted her. Officially she had not commented any crimes that Jean could tell. This woman if any could surely use a break she had been at this work for years. It wasn’t right the treatment that the citizens were going through but order were orders. Defying the king meant treason. Her being in the guard was the only thing keeping her own family safe.

ooc I am sorry as well first week back to school had me busy

"I can't attract too many attention. Maybe with your help, I can go out easily without any fights. I bet you know that I'm not from this island, the guards captured the wrong guy. Jeez, what's with this country? It seems people are forced to work. Anyway, I would only use my fists if my life is in danger." Zell touched his wrinkled forehead, he didn't know what to do.

Zell took a pickaxe to blend with the environment, he began to work while negotiating with the olive skin man. Sweats began to stream down his forehead, passing his nose bridge.

"Let's say, If you help me outta here, I'm going to help you guys with something. Eye for Eye." Zell hoped that he man would accept the term, Zell traded a service with a service, it's a balanced negotiation. If the man requested more, Zell would accept it no matter what because he wanted to leave this hell.

Brrrrrrr.. Zell's stomach growl from hunger, he forgot that his objective was to find meals. The worms in his stomach begged for mercy, they need supplies from the above that usually passed through his throat in enormous quantity. Oh man, the goddess of luck didn't give her blessing to Zell, and today would be the worst day ever for Zell.

Zell smiled awkwardly, "Do you have any meal with you? Will you share it?"

As things stood the man wasn’t an immediate threat to their plans leaving him to his own devices would probably do more harm than good.  Looking to Brutus he go an improving nod to his unexpressed thought.  We continue as planned he will come with me and you will fulfill that that role.  Nodding Brutus heads towards the exit as Zell ask for.  “Food at time like this whats with you young people, who the hell eats in a place like this!  It could fall down at any moment.  Clamping his mouth shut he shushes the other two despite him being the one that yelled.  Had it not been for the support beams that Mickey had provided that would have been enough to cause a cave in.   Leaving all his equipment behind except for the pick axe he sets to work on his project

We don’t have time for pleasantries but I’m Mickey. He is going to collapse the tunnel we are going to escape through an unfinished side tunnel we have been working on.  Leading the way he brings Zell to an area that has been shut somewhat discreetly with ice with ice taking his pic axe he hits the rock that had been made fragile cause the ice to shatter revealing a dark hollow space inside.  I am going to do same thing to the rock up ahead you can smash it up. Little did he know that the man had a better way.

Outside a team of people slowly enter the mines each one wearing suits that emitted light in addition to helmets with headlights.  Strategically Buster hit the pillars of ice  dirt and loose rock was already falling from the ceiling.

With one last mighty swing of the pickax light burst in illuminating while the strike of another had caused mine vein #7 to start collapsing on it self. Yelling could be heard on the inside of the cave while Mickey made his exit, as well as yelling from outside where the soldiers stood guarding the tunnels mouth. Rock and debris rained down as the rescue effort went underway.

Meanwhile

It seemed that they wanted to cooperate with Zell, not a bad effort. Zell didn't waste more energy to convince the man with the name Mickey to cooperate with him, he agreed after Zell stated that he would help them later on. But, even they agreed to help Zell, Zell had a frown face as the man rejected Zell's request, not because Mickey was a arrogant guy but mainly because there's no food time while they were inside a mine.

Anyway, Zell followed their plans. Mickey led the way and brought Zell to an area. "Whoa, so, you're the Devil Fruit user" Zell smirked as he noticed that there were ice pillars around the cave and ice walls. Zell was admiring the ice pillars, it seemed that the ice pillars and walls were made on purpose. Suddenly, without any notice from Mickey, the Mine #7 started to collapse as Mickey hit the walls, it was a strong swing. If Zell wasn't quick enough, he could be trapped inside. The Mine # 7 would be a history after this incident. Zell followed Mickey through an exit, and yelled when he was outside, "You could tell me earlier about that! I can die there!". He rubbed the dirt around his cape and clothes with his hands.

But, actually, Zell had a high survival rate even when he trapped inside, he could use his devil fruit powers and escaped easily but as a result, there could be a lot of damages caused by him, enough to catch all attention from around the town.

[[OOC2: If you can, please use commas often. I think you mixed some sentences together, I'm a bit confused surprised ]]
