"Hey, Shanks are we there yet?"
"Hahaha, be patient Luffy we just entered the New World. It will be a few days before we can find old Rayleigh."
"Ok! Shanks let's fight, I've been training a lot and made up some new moves!"
"Nah, I'll let you fight with some of my men instead."
"Damnit, cmon Shanks!"
"Ok fine, what if I beat them up?"
"We'll talk when it happens. Alright, Benn find a few guys with nothing to do to play with Luffy!"
The seven-year-old Luffy stood on the deck of the ship across from five members of the Red-Haired Pirates. In the past few months, Luffy had made some progress in Kenbunshoku Haki and Busoshoku Haki. However, as soon as he sent out a punch, the Haki would quickly dissipate
"Let's do this!"
"Hahaha, you'll never beat us Luffy!"
"Hmph! Just wait and see me kick your butts!"
Luffy then transformed his arms into Phoenix wings and his legs into talons. It looked hilarious since his legs were less than 30 centimeters long
Luffy then flew towards the five men who could use Bushoku Haki with full speed and dodged a couple attacks before being hit
Flying backward, Luffy quickly recovers from his injuries thanks to the powerful regeneration of the Tori Tori no Mi. He then flew back and them and dodged before sending a kick at one of the pirates
The pirate blocked Luffy's kick then sent a punch at Luffy which left him high in the air
In mid-air, Luffy fully transformed his body fully into a Phoenix then swirled around the five men creating a massive whirlwind out of blue flames. The five pirates being caught up within the flames tried to escape however to no prevail. Luffy then flew up and shot a large ball of blue flames at the pirates who were still struggling within his previous attack
The sound of gunshot resounds throughout the ship, Luffy's attack was nullified by a single bullet and almost shot him down from the sky. Turning around to look at the direction of the gunshot Luffy noticed smoke coming from Benn Beckman's pistol
"Hey, Benn! Why'd you stop my attack?!"
"It was quite dangerous that last attack, you could've seriously injured them.."
"Wow! I'm pretty great aren't I?!"
The five pirates who managed to escape the whirlwind of flames broke out in a cold sweat then thanked Benn before quickly running away
"Who will I fight now?"
"Noone, go fly in the sky or something. You've made great progress these past few months whether it be Haki or using your Devil's fruit."
Luffy then flew high into the sky as he observed the islands of the New World. Even in his full phoenix form on the left side of his waist, the jolly roger of the Red-Haired Pirates could be seen. Enjoying the scenery before him, Luffy flew far out and dived down towards the ocean and almost bumped into an emerging Sea King
From the bow strip of the ship, a voice could be heard even from miles away at Luffy's current location
"Oi Luffy! Come back! We need to change direction!"
Hearing this, Luffy created a message in the sky that said 'Coming' before flying towards the ship
Upon arriving at a certain island in the New World, the Red Haired Pirates docked their ship at the harbor. Shanks along with Lucky Roo, Benn Beckman and a sniper named Yasopp got off and accompanied Luffy to visit Silvers Rayleigh
After walking for a while, the five of them arrived at a small hut. Before he could knock on the door, a voice told Shanks to come in
"Haha, it's been a while vice-captain! I'm surprised you still noticed us from so far away."
