The “in progress” at the end of the Kekkei Genkai Sharingan column sent Leiyin into deep thought.
The last time, when Kaido attacked, Leiyin just reached a bottleneck in training. When fighting with Kaido, Leiyin suddenly felt a great increase in his Sharingan; it immediately advanced to Mangekyo Sharingan from the Three Tomoe Sharingan.
However, this time, behind the Mangekyo Sharingan written: “in progress.”
In the original story, the Mangekyo Sharingan could only be achieved by transplanting a relative’s eyes with Sharingan as their Kekkei Genkai. The Three Tomoe Sharingan would need some external stimulation to progress to the Mangekyo Sharingan. However, Leiyin awakened the Mangekyo Sharingan just by the growth of his strength alone.
This meant that as long as one’s strength could keep growing, the Sharingan could keep advancing without all the nonsense!
After all, not to mention relatives, he wasn’t even in the Naruto World. Even if there were relatives, Leiyin wasn’t an Uchiha.
In this way, this was considered a bug in the system. The road to becoming stronger seems to have become a little easier again.
Leiyin took so much money, which was impossible for the marines on the warship not to know. So, to appease the crowd, Leiyin took out a lot of money from the rest and gave these marine forces a share.
Initially, the invasion of Mock Town and the looting of many treasures were almost all the work of Leiyin alone. They were just helping to move things and abuse the small pirates. So, everyone naturally agreed to Leiyin’s proposal. If you asked, who would have problems with money?
Not only that, but Leiyin also said to everyone after the distribution of money, he would personally explain to the headquarters that these credits could all be counted on everyone. With that, he could get both power and money.
As the saying went: The only thing that could shake people was interest and fear. Leiyin was not only strong but also gave everyone such great benefits. Thus, the warship’s prestige had been increased like never before, and almost all of them looked at Leiyin as their real superior officer.
Leiyin also had his small thoughts. If he could get a genuinely loyal army, it wouldn’t be a bad thing.
Although Leiyin usually looks less talkative and not good at words, he was actually very ambitious. Like any marine officer, this kind of behavior was utterly a living mountain king.
Hina gripped a cigarette, handed it to Leiyin, and said, “Is it really okay to do so?”
Leiyin looked at the sea, said indifferently, “If you think it is not good, you can tell the Marine Headquarters. Tell them that we use the public for personal gain, enrichment of private pockets.”
Hina smiled, and her face immediately became angry, “What are you talking about? Do I look like that kind of person? I just feel that doing so is not like the old you at all.”
Leiyin turned his head and looked into her beautiful eyes, “And what was the old me like?”
Hina seemed to be a little embarrassed by his look, “The old you, you didn’t seem so bad, right?”
“That’s just because you don’t know me well enough.”
“I’m going to take a little rest,” Leiyin said and walked toward the cabin. “and, you smoke less; the constant smoking is not good for your health.”
Looking at Leiyin’s back, Hina thought about it.
At this time, the warship was still more than a day’s journey from Alabasta…
Alabasta, inside the hall in the Rain Dinners.
A long table was set up in the middle of the hall, with some white candles lit. The Officer Agents of [Baroque Works] were sitting on both sides of the table, waiting for their big boss, Mr.0, to appear.
Baroque Works was a secret criminal organization founded by Mr. 0. The naming rule for senior agents was Mr. + number, and for every male agent, there was a female partner with the naming rule Miss + holiday (such as All Sunday, Wednesday, Christmas, etc.).
The closer their numbers were to 0, the stronger they were on behalf of strength.
Their president was Mr. 0, while Mr. 1 to Mr. 5, was Officer Agents; Mr. 6 to Mr. 13, Frontier Agents; the rest of the bottom staff, called Billions and Millions, were considered the level foot soldiers. They were 2,000 (200 of them were Billions, and 1,800 of them were Millions). They only had the opportunity to be promoted when there was a vacancy in the position of agent.
At this time, the people gathered in this hall of the Rain Dinners were all Baroque Works senior agents!
Mr. 2 hands were raised above his head. Combined with one foot was off the ground and kept circling in place, “How long do I have to wait until the time? At least bring me some octopus pie. Miss Merry Christmas, come and spin one too.”
Mr. 1 clasped his hands in front of his chest and said coldly, “Mr. 2, can you be quieter, you idiot?”
The fat woman (Miss Merry Christmas, Mr. 4’s partner) said, “That’s right, idiot, my waist hurts when I turn.”
A beautiful woman with blue eyes (Miss All Sunday) came out of the hall with one hand on her slender waist, “Oh, it seems that everyone is not getting along too well.”
“Oh, Vice President, Miss All Sunday?”
Mr. 2 was still spinning, “Gee, Miss All Sunday, how’s your rest lately?”
Miss Merry Christmas said, “Shut up, you damn devil!”
“It’s really hard for everyone to come from thousands of miles to gather here, yet many people have come. It’s really something unprecedented. By the way, do you have any questions? If there are no questions, we’ll get to the point.”
“Hurry up and get started; I’m getting impatient.”
“Someone is trying to smash our place; I can’t just sit back and do nothing.”
A thick voice came, and then everyone saw a middle-aged man draped in a gray and black robe with a scar on his face walkout from the inner hall.
When everyone saw Mr. 0, they all stood up respectfully.
“Sit down, everyone.”
After sitting down, Mr. 5 opened his mouth and asked, “What did you mean when you said ‘someone wants to smash our place’?”
“It seems that the marine knows about our use of ‘Dance Powder’ to bring all the rain here.
When the crowd heard this, they were all shocked.
Even if they had some strength, they would be an egg against a stone if they were to make an enemy of the entire marine.
“You do not have to be so alarmed. The Holy Land received a letter of help from the old man Cobra. They just found out that it’s fishy when the only place that gets rain is Alubarna. Not to mention the cause, even who did it, they are not sure now.”
“So, what steps have they taken?”
“They sent two young kids, a Captain, and a Lieutenant with 500-600 troops to investigate the matter.”
Baroque Works could be said to be pervasive in Alabasta. With eyes and ears all around, even before Leiyin arrived, their spy agents had already gotten hold of some information.
