Kareem headed over to the lawless area of Sabaody Archipelago. Here one would find the worst kind of pirate's. Walking around Kareem felt many eye's lock onto him. These were the eyes of pirates and slave dealers. With Kareems pretty face and nice body, he would be a nice toy for those rice young ladies.
Turning his around and leaning his head to side Kareem said "Wanna fight?" firing of his conquers haki. He knocked out over half the people in Area 12 of the lawless area.
"Oh, I didn't expect for there to be any strong ones" saying that he turned around and left.
The pirates and slave dealers who weren't knocked out were shocked. They meant a mental note to not mess with that monster.
Right now he was currently heading for area 13 this was where the Dark King lived. He wanted to meet the pirate king's first mate for himself. In the anime Rayleigh was one of the characters he liked the most. How could he leave such a badass character in this world to do nothing? Rayleigh would make a great elder for his sect.
After walking for a while he arrived in front of a bar with a wooden plate titled 'Shakky's Rip-off Bar' without even entering Kareem could feel two powerful aura' s within the bar.
"I guess the Dark King is in"
Walking up to the door he pushed it up open.
With the sound of the doorbell ringing the only two people in the bar looked up. They had a shocked expression on there face.
"Welcome," Shakky said even though she still had a shocked expression on her face.
Rayleigh was looking at Kareem in shock. With his and Shakky's powerful observation haki it was surprising they didn't sense him coming.
"I'll have a glass of beer," Kareem said sitting down at the counter.
Shakuyaku poured him some beer and pushed it over. Kareem took the beer and drink it in one gulp.
"Are you new here I've never seen you before?" Shakuyaku asked.
Shakuyaku was the wife of Rayleigh. Shakky is a relatively slim and tall woman with short black hair, with two tufts pointing upwards. She was someone who constantly seeks information, particularly on other pirates. Seeing such an interesting young man she was wondering if he was a pirate.
"This is my first time here on Sabaody Archipelago. Name's Vali D Valentine the Sword Saint nice to meet you" Kareem stretched his hand out for a handshake.
Shakky stretched her hand out and shook his hand.
"It's nice to meet you too Vali. I'm known as Shakky the owner of this bar and that old man over there is my husband Rayleigh" Shakky pointed at Rayleigh.
"Dark King Rayleigh first mate of the Roger Pirates. It's on honor to meet you too. But sadly I'm here for your bounty" Kareem said looking at Rayleigh.
"Hoo, young man I'm already a retired pirate," Rayleigh said smiling.
"Joking Rayleigh but I do want to fight you and if I win I have a proposition to make"
Rayleigh lean forward with a curious smile on his face "What kind of proposition?"
"Let's head outside first" saying that he got up and walked outside.
He did not forget to pay Shakky for the beer.
Standing outside Kareem and Rayleigh both had their swords in hand. Rayleigh had a smile on his face. He could tell from the aura Kareem was radiating he was powerful. Seeing Kareem was not attacking he initiated the attack.
Rayleigh shot forward like a rocket. Holding his sword up he slashed down vertical. Kareem used his blade and deflected the blade to the side. They both pulled their blades back quickly.
With the collision of blades, beautiful sparks were sent out. Kareem was using a katana around the level of yoru. Thanks to the vast difference between his weapons and Rayleigh he decided to buy a new one from the system. He had received some points earlier for acting tough in Marine Fold and knocking out those fools earlier in Area 12.
Rayleigh jumped back putting some distance between him and Kareem.
"Youngsters, these days are quite monsters aren't they?"
"In my eyes, you are quite young yourself"
Kareem lifts his blade up he slashed down firing a blue arc of sword qi. Rayleigh lifts his sword and deflected the sword qi into the air. Utilizing the opportunity Kareem used Shunpo and appeared in front of Rayleigh and sent out a stab.
Ding! It was blocked!
"Oh, let's pick up the pace then shall we. If I remember correctly this move is Dante's"
Kareem sent out a barrage of sword stabs. Seeing Rayleigh was still blocking he picked up the pace. The speed and power were drastically improved yet it was still blocked. After a while, he jumped back.
Then he used Shunpo appearing in front of Rayleigh he raised his sword with both hands. Rayleigh's eye's shined seeing this. He prepared himself for a counter-attack. Then something unexpected happened. Kareem let go of this sword and disappeared from his vision.
"Below" he looked down and saw Kareem but it was too late.
Kareem did a leg swipe hitting off the ground. Before Raleigh had the chance to regain his footing Kareem jumped up grabbing his sword. He dropped right next to Rayleigh with his sword stuck into the ground next to his head.
Shakky was at a loss for words.
"I win Rayleigh," Kareem said getting up of the ground.
"A swordsman doesn't always have to use his sword. Also, I never said this was a swords match"
Rayleigh got up off the ground dusting himself off.
"Hahaha, I never expected that move. Tell me what's your proposition" he said seriously.
Shakky was also interested.
