Weeks went by, and Toshiro Garp has pretty much become his grandpa in this time. If you overlook the child abuse, he was a kind-hearted old man.
Toshiro began following him around as Garp taught him everything he needed to know about being a marine. Toshiro in fact, didn't have any goals.
At the moment, he just wished to survive, and the marine was hiring at the moment, and they paid well.
Toshiro didn't meet that many people. The people he got to meet were Bogard, Garp's right-hand man.
Sengoku, the highest-ranking Marine. Toshiro had to give a good impression since this will be his boss.
The other was Vice-Admiral Kuzan. he was also good friends with Garp, and had the ranking of Vice-Admiral, which was the third-highest in the marine.
Toshiro met a few others, but most of them were unfriendly. Toshiro did set a goal for himself, which was to become a fleet Admiral.
Fleet Admiral is the highest Marine rank, and is the commander of the entire organization. It is just above admiral but below the World Government Commander-in-Chief and the Five Elders.
Garp hearing his goals, only smiled, but he did start torturing... I mean, training Toshiro even harder.
In year 5 of the great age of pirates.
Toshiro was sitting with Garp in the fleet Admiral office while eating donuts with Garp.
"whitebread just claimed Fish man island," Sengoku said with a deep frown.
"what bad about that? isn't he protecting it?" Toshiro asked
"... it's hard to explain," Sengoku said, not knowing how to explain that the marine doesn't uphold justice to everyone.
Whitebeard is named as the strongest person alive. Although he is called Whitebeard, he doesn't have a beard.
He has a crescent-shaped mustache. He calls himself Whitebeard to see if anyone has the guts to correct him. By the looks of it, no one has tried to correct him, or maybe they are dead.
"I'm taking a leave for a few months," Garp said as he stopped eating his donut.
Sengoku gave Garp a deep look before letting him leave. Toshiro felt with Garp onto a ship, which Garo crew were waiting.
Everyone in Garp crew were good friends, not like how other Marine ships were like.
"where are we going?" Toshiro asked
"I'm going to introduce to you another brat," Garp said with a smile.
"Alright, but can you teach me that thing you do when jumping on air?" Toshiro asked
"Alright, open your eyes wide," Garp said as he jumped up, and began kicking the air so hard it made him go up.
Toshiro eyes widened. Although he has seen this skill, it was his first time seeing it up this close.
He subconsciously his left eye opened as it opened his right eye closed, as if the two could not be opened at the same time.
Toshiro left the looked at Garp as information entered his mind. in an instant, seven skills appeared in his mind.
He mastered all of these skills in an instant. These skills were Geppo, Tekkai, shigan, Rankyaku, soru, Kami-e, and, Rokuogan.
Toshiro held his left eye as he felt tired.
"I feel sleepy," Toshiro said as he went to a room and fell asleep.
Garp had a slight frowned as he sensed that Toshiro had gotten stronger. But Toshiro didn't get stronger, which confused him slightly.
Toshiro laid on the bed as he held his left eye, he pointed one finger above him. As if firing a gun, he fired compressed air shockwaves that went through the wood above him.
Toshiro eyes widened, but he was bright back by the smoke that was coming off his finger.
'I mastered it... my left eye has this ability. I should keep this to myself... I should also look for other stuff to copy and master.' He thought as he fell asleep.
A few weeks went by, and Toshiro arrived on an Island. Garp took him into the forest. As they walked deep, they ran into a 2-year-old boy holding a stick.
The kid seemed to be in a bad mood as he looked at Garp. The kid seemed to know Garp. He had deep loneliness in his eyes as he spoke.
"Should I have been born in the first place?" The Kid asked, to which Garp sigh.
