Dear god, is Zoro actually capable of remembering anyone’s names but Luffy’s? Then again, it’s a blessing she hasn’t got tagged with something as awful as ‘witch’ like Nami has.
“Don’t worry, Ri-flower! I shall return victorious!”
Sanji’s off, leaping over the side of the Merry to land upon the thick grass that covers the earth. He points one challenging finger towards Zoro, announcing that their contest will be decided by whoever brings back the most mass of meat and the two stalk off in different directions.
Riskua watches them going, her head already throbbing. Well at least she’ll be able to crack on with her own research until they return.
“A-at least Riskua decided to stay,” Usopp finally murmurs, legs wobbly before he decides to sit himself down, “dependable, already been to the Grand Line, capable fighter Riskua.”
He nods firmly and the redhead smiles slightly, having not expected that kind of endorsement from Usopp.
She’s aware they’ve not spent too much time together, the other pirate a bit too engrossed in his weapon/ship modifications and worrying about… well, everything, while she’d been training with Zoro and Sanji and Luffy, most of the time. Hell, most of her socialising with Nami was down when they were in the girl’s cabin. But really, she’s spent so much time with boys while growing up, she’s just not as practiced while talking to other girls. She’ll get over it though. Just, not today.
“Well, if you need me, I’ll be writing up some of my notes in the kitchen,” ‘where the snacks are’, Riskua finishes silently, smirking as she gets to her feet, waving goodbye to both Usopp and Nami as she heads to the hatch.
