HxH in One Piece World - Chapter 36
Chapter 36 Chidori
Maude looked at the long sword on the table.
The handle is engraved with a row of diamond-shaped patterns. The color of the scabbard is blue, slender and rich in texture, and white “✲” patterns are arranged disorderly on the sheath.
The interweaving of blue and white gives a sense of deepness at first glance.
After looking at it for a while, Maude was immediately full of curiosity about the blade in the scabbard.
In contrast, Sonny had no interest in swords at all, and concentrated on sweeping the bottom of the bowl, not even letting go of a finely chopped green onion.
Saul took a big mouthful of hot noodles and looked sideways at Maude: “Why, want to try the texture?”
Maude nodded subconsciously, and said: “Well, this sword looks very textured, I don’t know how it feels when you hold it.”
“Hehe, don’t you know if you try it?”
Saul freed up a hand, picked up Chidori and handed it over.
Maude raised his eyebrows when he saw this, and reached out to take Chidori over.
At this moment, Saul grabbed his smile instantly, using the Chidori as a stick with his backhand, knocking on Maude’s forehead.
“You have to be single-minded and do everything, and you are interested in swords before you get started with guns?”
Maude rubbed his forehead, silently looking at Saul, who smiled in the first second, and then was expressionless in the second.
Just look at the sword, as for?
Knowing that Saul is very sensitive to this aspect, Maude would not talk back.
Tonight he was still considering whether to write down his second demand, and it coincided that Saul bought the Chidori from the auction.
Therefore, he wanted to feel the charm of One Piece’s world-famous sword firsthand.
Never thought that Saul would not even let him touch the sword.
Obviously he hates things related to swords so much, yet he is so keen on collecting famous swords.
I don’t know what’s in this old guy’s head.
Maude glanced at the Chidori who was put on the table again by Thor, rather regretful.
But soon, he thought that this famous sword would be put on the shelf, and Saul would go to Flower Market for morning exercises basically every morning…
Withdrawing his gaze calmly, Maude made a small calculation in his heart.
At this time, he didn’t notice Saul’s meaningful eyes, as if he was saying: “You bastard, just give up.”
The next day.
In the early morning, the mist was filled.
The air is full of salty water vapor.
Maude woke up from sleep and rushed to the shop as soon as he put on the load.
Looking at the shelves that were unchanged as yesterday, Maude, who had failed his expectations, suddenly looked disappointed.
Hearing Maude’s voice, Sonny came over from the corridor and looked at Maude in confusion.
“What are you doing?”
Maude said perfunctorily.
He didn’t want to say, but Sonny looked at the shelves, and then remembered Maude’s performance last night, and suddenly guessed Maude’s mind.
“Don’t think about it. How could the swords that Saul wanted to collect be put on the shelf to sell? He doesn’t need these famous swords to fill the storefront.”
Maude was even more disappointed.
He was lucky enough to think that Saul might be planning to touch it for a few days before putting the sword on the shelf, but Sonny shattered his fluke with a single word.
“All the swords bought at a high price were put in his room by Saul, but I advise you not to mess around. Even if an ant enters the room, Saul will know.”
Sonny glanced at the disappointed look on Maude’s face and walked towards the kitchen.
“Today’s breakfast will be cooked a while later. You should clean up the shop before you come.”
Maude responded weakly, and immediately looked at the shelf again.
Although there were many long swords on it, they didn’t have the feeling of Chidori that made him shine.
There is a huge gap between the two.
After all, under the prestigious name, there are no vain people.
Chidori is one of the fifty industrial good swords, not to mention the aura of the good swords itself, and the quality alone is not comparable to the swords on the shelf.
But in fact, the swords on the shelf are not bad either. Although they are far inferior to Chidori, they are not so different.
The reason Maude feels this way is more due to the influence of his fame.
No way, he was deeply influenced by the original work, and naturally thought that only the nearly 100 swords of the karma system were really good swords.
But this world is so vast, how can there be only nearly a hundred good swords.
Even if it is a sword of medium quality, it only needs to be used by a swordsman who is good at Armament Haki.
[Haki cultivation] for a long time, you can achieve a sharp sword out of the invisible.
Although he couldn’t touch the chidori, Maude had the idea of starting a sword instead.
It’s just that he has to secretly start, and then hide in the room.
If you are fine at ordinary times, you can take it out to familiarize yourself with the feel.
With this thought, Maude was not in a hurry.
On the contrary, the excerpts of [Notes] are more important, after all, you have to return [Notes] to Sonny after dinner.
No longer worrying about Chidori, Maude cleaned the store as quickly as possible, and then asked Sonny for a new notebook.
It took more than two hours before he copied all the information.
I originally had an impression of the information in [Notes], but after copying it down this time, I can remember some parts more clearly.
Maude estimated that even if you don’t need to use the reward photo to match, as long as you see the person, you should be able to identify the other party’s identity immediately.
After most of the day, the weapon shop’s business has been bleak as usual.
During the period, there was still no guest.
It wasn’t until the meal time that Saul, who was full of alcohol, came back slowly with a jug of wine.
As soon as he entered the weapon shop, Thor immediately glanced at the weight on Maude’s leg.
After that, he threw a word and went straight upstairs back to the room.
I want to feast on it outside.
Watching Saul go upstairs, Maude returned to the shop and couldn’t help but glance at the empty shop door.
He thought that Saul would not be able to wake up in a few hours if he fell asleep this night.
So, in the afternoon, you don’t need to be urged to practice by Saul, you may go to the street to look for prey.
Do it as soon as he thinks of it, Maude didn’t plan to eat anymore, and went straight back to the room.
Take off the load first, and place the two flintlock pistols next to your body. As for [Usopp], I don’t bring it because the signs of aging on the gun are too conspicuous.
“About half a million Bailey…”
Maude counted the remaining private money, and then put it in his pocket properly.
The money was snatched from the prey after he hunted.
After getting ready, Maude quickly walked downstairs and came to the shop.
“Sonny, I am going out.”
Maude quickly dropped a word, and after that, he didn’t give Sonny a chance to reply at all. He opened the door and closed the door in one go, and then slipped away in no time.
Inside the counter, Sonny stared at the store door, gritted her teeth after a while.
But soon, she noticed the speed at which Maude had just slipped away.
“Impossible, only a few days…”
Sonny thought blankly.
Even if the talent is amazing, it’s impossible to make such a significant improvement just after carrying the weight for two days?
Sonny was puzzled.
Walking in the lane, Maude suddenly remembered that there were several [neighbors] around who hadn’t visited.
But thinking of being able to go to visit at any time, and time is tight, I will save this idea until next time.
“Speaking of which, this is the first time I came out during the day.”
Maude couldn’t help but sighed, and then thought about where to go.
The place of choice is definitely the tavern.
Although there is a mixture of fish and dragons, the chances of finding suitable prey are relatively high.
However, Maude also wanted to visit Flower Street during the day, and there are other weapon shops, and Saul often exercises in the morning… cough cough.
The more he thought about it, Maude became more interested and couldn’t help speeding up his pace.
He was in high spirits, but he didn’t notice the gaze that came to him.
