*Kingdom of Alabasta, Oasis town 'Rainbase'*
In a dark alley Lex,Tanya and Rollo teleported in, hiding in the shadows.
"Captain welcome to Alabasta", Tanya gleened in excitement as she turned around and saw the bustly town.
Lex then turned around and looked at Rollo,"You aren't strong enough for this task,so you'll have to train now", he then tapped on Tanya's shoulder who was lost in her World,"Tanya take him to Rusukaina and come back immediately".
"The island you are going to is the toughest you'll ever see it has about 50 different seasons and more than 500 different animals that can kill you, I'm not joking.
So what i want you to do is get stronger but don't get yourself killed and don't underestimate the beasts I'll come over and teach you after i finish my task here".
"Ok captain, but do come back soon, I'm itching for a round with you", saying that Rollo and Tanya teleported away.
Tanya came back in a min and both Lex and her headed towards the largest structure in the town, the Casino.
The casino was a huge Pyramid with the tip in the shape of a crocodile
As Lex stepped into the Casino he saw a Casino soo big that would leave the Mega Casinos back on Earth to dust.
There were Thousands of people present and a literal Waterfall in the middle of the structure, the VVIP had a sepreate floor on the top level where Lex could see the Boss and the security was top notch, people couldnt take their weapons and were frisked but that couldnt stop Lex, he slipped through them and went straight to the top floor.
As Lex entered the room he saw a tall man with a wide chest, broad shoulders, muscular arms and legs, and a thick neck. He had pale skin and nape-length black hair which is kept neatly slicked back, various battle wounds, most notably a long stitched scar at the bridge of his nose that stretches across his face and a large hook made from a tough gold alloy in place of his left hand. His eyes were deep-set and heavy-lidded, and his thin eyebrows are characteristically drawn upward in the middle and seen smoking a thick cigar.
He was one of the shichibukai with a Bounty of 81,000,000 belly 'Crocodile'.
Crocodile was sitting on a huge Sofa and smoking his cigar, as soon as he saw Lex he blew his out a smoke and talked,"Uhmm 'Psycho Prince' What the..". Crocodile stood up looking down on Lex, he then raised his hand.
Lex using his observation haki jumped back at the last second, the sand inside the floor rumbled and shot up into the air and subsided in the place where Lex stood.
"Now now Crock I don't want to hurt you, let's make a deal" Lex sighed.
A vein bulged out of Crocodile's forehead,"Crock?".
And the next second he jumped forwards towards Lex aiming his hook at his head.
Lex took out his Jitte and stabbed it right at his gut.
Crock was taken aback and held his stomach,"Damn seastone, you really came prepared".
Lex sighed,"Like I said Crock I don't want to hurt you so stand down and listen to me".
Crocodile just stood back and gave his grin, Lex felt an ominous development just then a sweet voice sounded, "Dos Fleur" two feminine hands sprouted out of Lex's sholders and covered Lex's face, "Clutch" the hands moved towards Lex's back intending to twist him and break it but nothing happened.
Lex's armament haki was in place and saved him.
Lex turned around and saw Her.
A tall and slender young woman with shoulder-length black hair and eyes that has dark, wide pupils She also has a long, thin and defined nose.
She wore a skimpy cowgirl outfit consisting of a purple cleavage-exposing corset and matching miniskirt, both with white ornaments hanging from them, and a white fur-lined coat paired with a white cowboy hat and white high-heeled boots.
Nico Robin, she was looking stunned knowing that her power did not work.
Lex looked at her and walked towards her, Robin seeing Lex walk towards him started moving back.
Meanwhile Crock took this opportunity and silently made his way to Lex and Jumped at him when his back was turned around.
Lex walking towards Robin smirked he could hear Crock's movement and turned around blocking his hook with his haki infused Jitte.
"Attacking a man when his back is turned around, that's not so honorable Crocks".
Crocodile was getting annoyed by the second.
He used the sand around and made a sphere enclosing Lex," Muhahaha you're done you shitty Kid".
Crocodile tried to contract his sphere but something wasn't right, his sand refused to move any closer and then a loud pitch sound was heard it broke all the glasses in the casino and made crocodile loose his concentration and the sphere fell apart.
Lex turned to Tanya and gave her a look, Tanya nodded.
The next minute she teleported herself next to Robin and took her to a deserted island.
Crocodile was stunned he did not expect something like this to happen, he was enraged now"Give her back now!".
Lex smiled,"I'm taking her for a while don't worry I'll return her to you safe and sound ok?".
Crocodile didn't listen to a word and removed his hook and launched an attack.
Lex kicked Crock's hand away and gave him an uppercut which knocked him down on the floor.
Crocodile got up laughing sinisterly.
"Ohh looks like i broke something in you with that punch"Lex looked at Crocodile with pitiful eye.
Crocodile kept laughing and pointed at Lex's thigh, a small cut was made and blood was seeping out,"My poison has entered your system but don't worry you won't die so soon, it'll take you weeks and that time you'll be wishing you'd die" Crocodile licked his lips.
Lex looked at Crocodile in disbelief,'Damn i forgot how crafty that ba*tard is I shouldn't have underestimated him'.
Then Tanya came back at that moment,"Sorry captain she was a handful i had to knock her unconscious,we can go now".
Lex nodded and looked at Crocodile,"You're a sly SOB i like that and dont worry about her I'll take good care of her and bring her back to you ASAP".
Saying that Lex and Tanya teleported away.
Crocodile meanwhile was still fuming in anger but he bit his tongue, it was his first defeat after Whitebeard.
*A deserted island somewhere in the Grandline*
Robin was unconscious on the ground and Lex went towards her to wake her up but fell down on his knees.
Tanya was shocked and came and supported Lex up, he was panting heavily and sweating profusely.
"Looks like the poison is working hahaha"
Tanya couldn't understand,"Poi..Poison captain?".
Lex looked towards her screaming in Pain,"Crocodile poisoned me, take us to 'Him' he'll know what to do".
Tanya was afraid for her captain,she carried both Robin and Lex and teleported away.
