“Roger! We’re here. Where are you?” Bucky frowned at this moment and looked around, but his line of sight was so dark that he couldn’t see the surroundings at all.
Suddenly, the gunfire sounded. Bucky was taken aback. He retreated and collided with Moria. At the same time, the lights in the theater hall turned on for an instant. Roger was pointing his P-90 at the four people from the stairs. It is evident that the shot just fired was from this P-90.
“Roger?” Crocodile frowned.
Everyone looked at Roger in surprise. This man was expressionless, and no one knew whether he would shoot another shot next.
But the next second, Roger suddenly put down the gun. He opened his arms and laughed, “Wow! Wow! Wow! Long time no see, my friends! Did you miss me!?”
“Yeah, it’s been a long time.” Bucky shook his head. As soon as he appeared, we’re greeted with such a welcome gift. It really befitted the character of this lunatic. Did he really plan to shoot one of us just now?
“When I was in jail, I heard that you fled to Russia. When did you come back?” Moria stepped forward. At the same time, he found out that at least four guys were hidden around him, each in different places.
“I came back half a year ago.” Roger and Moria hugged, then looked at the other three and said, “Come, let’s go inside. If the Rio police rush in stupidly, I can’t stop them. Bucky, what are you looking at? Come here! The vases hanging here are worthless, so don’t look at them anymore!”
Bucky shrugged and walked up.
At this time, the two thugs walked out of the dark and came directly to the theater gate, seeming to be guarding the first line of defense.
Brother Doflamingo looked around a few times, then smiled, “This place is good for defense. How much manpower and weapons do you have this time? How long can the ammunition support it?”
“Hey! Guys, I know that you have been trapped for several years and have long been bored! Don’t worry. I’ll give you some fun.” Roger laughed and led the four of them into the concert hall.
“I want to go to the toilet. Fuck. I have been holding it all the way here!” Bucky said uncomfortably at this time, “Before going out, the female prison guard with a nice ass was servicing me halfway through!”
Roger smiled and did not say anything else. Instead, he just waved his hand, “Batu, you take him there!”
The remaining three people, led by Roger, walked into a VIP room. Here, they saw Rio’s “greedy fat pig” and the senate president. These two prominent figures could be seen on TV many times. Crocodile and the rest naturally recognized them.
Moria seemed interested in this ‘greedy fat pig’ and walked directly in front of Bureau Chief Jose with a grinning face. Bureau Chief Jose almost fainted in fright.
Crocodile walked to the viewing platform, looked at the bottom of the concert hall, and said with a smile, “Wow, what a grand event. There are so many people in this place!”
“Our senate president is the grandest among all.” Roger sneered.
The old senate president was agitated, but he still stayed quiet. There was already a murderer, Roger. Now, they had four more felons. Having this group of lawless people gathered together would cause heavy damage to the city.
Brother Doflamingo was sitting on the sofa leisurely and looked at Roger with his legs folded. “Roger, did you make such a big scene just to get us out?”
Brother Doflamingo then said bluntly, “You should understand that it is not difficult for us to come out, but we are unwilling to come out for the time being.”
“Brother Doflamingo, our era needs to restart.” Roger’s eyes were full of enthusiasm at this time, “I want to return Rio to the state it was 20 years ago and restore everything to its previous way!”
Brother Doflamingo sneered, “By just relying on these hostages on your hand and your 20 or so subordinates? Roger, it’s not that I want to discourage you. The four of us will likely be sent back in the end with your subordinates too. Do you know what is waiting for you outside? Helicopters, assault vehicles, riot teams, and even soldiers. There is no way for us to leave safely from so many encirclements.”
Roger said calmly, “Brother Doflamingo, are you going to give up? It doesn’t matter. I can let you out. Crocodile and Moria, I can personally send you off as long as you voice it out.”
“Haha! Roger, it’s just your Brother Doflamingo concerned about you.” Moria immediately took Bureau Chief Jose to a chair and sat him up, “You have to understand that we have long left the ‘military command center.’ It’s no longer under you and the old man. If the benefits aren’t enough, we won’t sell our lives for the sake of it.”
Roger suddenly smiled and said, “Let me ask you, how many slums are there in Rio?”
Moria said without any pauses, “Seven hundred. But now, because of the suppression of the ‘UPP,’ our strength is less than half of the previous since a few years have passed. Wait, are you planning to send away the ‘UPP’ troops?”
“This is just the first step.” Roger smiled slightly at this time and then took out a document from his clothes, “In addition, I have found this thing in Russia over the past few years.”
What Roger took out attracted the attention of several people. When Crocodile picked it up and opened it in curiosity, his face suddenly changed slightly.
“What is it?” Brother Doflamingo frowned.
Crocodile said solemnly, “Nuclear bomb…”
“Let me tell you. Back then, I fought from the south end of the bridge to the north end. The scene deserved to be called a river of blood! Do you know what people call me?”
Bucky, with a drunkard’s nose, looked triumphantly at Batu, who was escorting him to the toilet.
“What do they call you?” Batu didn’t just smile, but he was quite respectful of the former senior cadre of Capital’s Military Command Center.
After all, each of these four people could be said to be a legendary figure.
“The legendary villain.” Bucky suddenly sneered. He moved as fast as lightning, snatching an alloy dagger from Batu’s combat uniform.
The dagger was as if turned alive in Bucky’s hand. It rotated quickly and finally stuck close to Batu’s neck in the blink of an eye.
“You…” Batu was a little uncertain about Bucky’s intentions at this time, but he was sweating coldly.
“It’s just a joke.” Bucky shrugged at this moment and assessed the dagger, “This dagger seems great. I’m keeping it.”
Batu shook his head. Boss Roger would be equipping these four guys with weapons. A dagger was nothing at all. He would even give off the pistol in his combat uniform.
“Sometimes, flying daggers are more idiomatic than bullets.” Bucky shook his head, “They’re not afraid of Bucky’s flying daggers before seeing it. For my enemies, I will usually…”
You will what? Batu lamented in excitement.
Bucky didn’t go on because he saw several people, men and women. There were handsome men and gorgeous women, and even an old man.
Lucky me, they are weaklings at first glance. It’s time for them to know about Batu’s power.
It’s amusing to bully the weak!
Bucky licked his lips, and the alloy dagger appeared in his palm.

Now I remember why I didn’t read this novel for 4 months. I was so bothered by these names I stopped for a while. It indeeds makes me uncomfortable to imagine characters I know with a totally different personality, way of talking and setting. If it was just one, or a few from different sources, it could be done but it had to be all One Piece villains. On top of the author’s writing, who is a god at melancholy, being subpar when it comes to action, it makes it a really difficult read.
