It’s huge!! Law stood behind the wheel of his small yet swift and trusted airship, his blue eyes wide and his mouth agape as SanFransokyo came into view. Look at the size of those buildings! Having just arrived on this world, the pirate flew above the Golden Gate Bridge, drinking in the horizon that displayed a vastly different city than anything he had ever seen. Not only were the buildings he saw tall and wide, countless seemed to be made from glass or windows—reflecting the beautiful ocean and mountains in the distance that surrounded it. Peppering the sky were not only clouds but small hovering mechanisms (using his small retractable telescope, the pirate exclaimed at how they looked like sharks) and blimps as well as snaking roads that wound around the buildings and down towards the ground.
Below him was not only the sea, but the bridge, harboring its own flood of traffic as cars, trucks, bikes and scooters all honked and snaked at a slow pace. It created an orchestra that was unfamiliar yet somewhat pleasing to him. ”This is crazy…” Running a hand through his blonde hair in disbelief, the pirate grinned to reveal a gold tooth as his eyes brimmed with mischief and glee. ”There’s so many people!” Forget robberies or treasure hunting! Pick-pockets alone could live comfortably in a place like this! ”Ha ha ha! I've found a paradise!” He wouldn’t have to do any real work for a while, considering the weight he carried out of Port Royal. But I can always have fun~ It was like a schoolboy looking at a brand new playground.
Flying The Harpy above the towering spines of the red bridge below, Law’s excitement propelled him forward as his eyes rested on a large archway gate between two buildings, adorned with red lanterns before a gigantic statue of a cat holding a sign. WOOP-WOOP! Red and blue lights flashed, distinct despite the bright sun above as a crackling voice boomed over an intercom. ”Unidentified flying vehicle—land now and proceed—“ Though multiple voices in different languages spoke, Law recognized one of them, his head jolting to his control-panel. He had been so distracted by the view of the city he hadn’t even noticed the warning of his radar. How the hell had he not heard those noisy propellors, though? ”The hell? Cops?” What, could they read his mind? Guess his intention? He hadn't even DONE anything yet! He had them back on his home world—but literally had run into nothing of the sort since—well, other than the army at Port Royal—but did that count?
”Whadd’ya want?” Having reached for his own intercom device, Law gripped a small hand-held mic device that snaked on a coiled cord back to his control panel. His voice projected back to the two helicopters now hovering at his sides. Though he didn’t stop the airship, Law lowered its speed to a slow crawl as the unknown enforcers spoke. ”Unidentified flying vehicle—this is your last warning. Land so we can view your papers and—“ Law sighed with frustration as he scratched the back of his head. Man—they never just let you explain anything, huh? Always their way or the highway. He was already getting pissed off. Whoever these people were, they rubbed him the wrong way.
”Well, I was gonna take a leisurely tour…” With a devious grin, the pirate gripped the wheel tight with one hand while the other went for his control panel, littered with switches and buttons from countless upgrades. ”…but I suppose this’ll be more fun.” He’d have to be careful—this city had countless tall and squeezed together obstacles. VVVVVVRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOSH! Within the flip of a switch, the small yet customized Gummi-Engines on The Harpy burst with energy, lancing the small airship between the two helicopters within the blink of an eye. The wind pressure alone caused the flying tops to spin and nearly lose control for a moment. WOOP-WOOP! Sirens roared as the helicopters regained themselves, chasing after the flying ship that had already made its way over the welcoming ‘gates’ of the city.
”Ha ha! Idiots!” A ship suitable for Gummi-Space would always be able to outrace normal ships. Below him were the streets of SanFransokyo, his small airship casting a shadow over the city wherever it flew, causing countless pedestrians and others to crane their necks up and begin shouting in exclamation at the site. Already in the heart of the city, the path where Law was heading, large monitors for the pubic would display news, a woman in a helicopter reporting live. ”—chasing the unknown craft down 7th—“ Another monitor would display an ‘emergency announcement’ cutting through the channel: ”Arrived unexpectedly above the Golden Gate Bridge only ten minutes ago—seemingly out of nowhere!” Already certain roads in the city would begin to be blocked, police on foot clearing the way for police cars and others to get through to follow the ships path.
It seemed that within moments of arriving, somehow without really doing anything, Law had stirred up chaos.
