Cross opened his eyes and what he saw was an old wooden roof. He looked around to find more information. All he saw was a dining table for 2 people. Cross stood up from his bed to look at the kitchen and check for food. Not long after he stood up he felt a tremendous headache.
"AAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHH!! THATTTT HUURRTTTT!!!"
After about five minutes of pain, the pain finally disappeared and he got a memory from his body.
'What a nasty way to get memory.' Cross really hate that headache.
From his memory, he learned that his parents died in a storm while at sea. After that, his grandfather took care of him from childhood until now. His parents are antique dealers. While his grandfather is a former marine. His grandfather died a week ago because illness and the owner of this body are too mentally weak. Yesterday night he died because of depression. After his parents died the people around him began to mock him because he was orphaned. The incident lasted for one month. His grandfather, who learned that his grandson was still alive, began searching for a month and finally found him and took him away from that place.
'Because the owner of this body has given up, I will do anything so that my name is known throughout the world. And everyone who has ever mocked you will regret later. At least that is my payment for taking his body. ' Cross said confidently.
'To achieve that dream I must live. First, check the food storage room. ' Cross began to walk toward the food storage room.
'Wow, a lot of food! Can last at least a year. ' After finishing checking food, Cross returned to his house to think about what he would do next.
Cross was very happy because there was a lot of food. But he was also confused as to why his grandfather kept a lot of food. Like he will go to war somewhere. Suddenly he remembered something that might be the answer.
"Ohh! Is this given by the god? If you think about it that's just a reasonable explanation at this time." Nod by agreeing.
After looking carefully this house is not so big. There is only one bedroom containing two bed for one person. After that the kitchen and bathroom.
'Are grandfather's positions while on marine so small? If not why is this house so small. Well, I don't need to think about that.'
After eating three servings of people he washed the dishes then sat down again at the dining table. And think what training he will do.
'I'm eleven years old, six years later Luffy will start sailing on the sea. Then I will practice strengthening my body first. After that practice rokushiki and haki or space. This power seems to be different from the devil fruit. ' Cross thought hard about his space power.
'Alright, I will train my body first.' Cross thought as he walked out of the house.
He does push-ups, sits ups, jumps frogs and others. After finishing with warm-up he looked for stones to tie to his body so he felt heavy. Then he began to mimic the movements of martial art in his memory.
"This movement is like a martial arts master in battle. But what I'm doing now is really embarrassing, my body is very stiff. The best ex-soldiers are doing really childlike movements. Asking for knowledge of anything in the world is really good. Fortunately, I didn't ask for anything stupid. But even though I had the knowledge if my body couldn't follow the movements in my memory it would be in vain "Cross was relieved that his wish was not in vain.
"If only this body was my real body, then it would be easier to practice this world martial arts. * Haaaah * I will train this body from the start then." Cross shook his head because he couldn't believe he had to start from scratch.
After practicing for six hours he decided to finish his training. And now he sat on the ground looking at the sky. 'I'm really tired now. Just practicing for a while and my body is like someone who will die. Even walking home seems difficult. Ah, I should have made dinner first, now I'm very tired and it's impossible to make dinner. Okay, I'll just eat the fruit and go to bed. ' Cross really didn't know whether to laugh or cry if he saw his body at this time. He walked to his house. He ate five apples on his dining table after that went to bed to sleep.
In the morning he woke up with extreme hunger. He went to the kitchen to prepare breakfast.
'I really need someone who can make me food so I can focus on practicing. But if I go to the village now and someone bothers me then I can't do anything with this weak body. Well, I will practice for three months after that go to the village to find someone who wants to stay here to help me practice. ' Cross thought to facilitate training. Living alone is really difficult. When I was an army I never thought of cooking, I could cook even because of the obligation when I was a new soldier. Have money but can't order food because my house is far from the village.
After finishing eating and wanted to do the dishes, he suddenly realized something.
'Ah! I need money if I see my appetite. Supplies may only last for six months after I start practicing. ' I will check the items that Grandpa has, maybe he left money.'
Cross check his grandfather's belongings and found nothing. But a photo of Marineford with a big X caught his attention. Suddenly a stupid idea flashed when he looked at the photo seriously.
