Prologue

Footsteps echoed off the walls of the dark, deserted street in Port Royal. The wet coble stones made it hard to run, but the runner kept going. He jumped over a gate and ran down an alleyway. He got to a locked door, picked the lock with a small dagger, and got inside. Once in, he heard a guard coming down the hall, and hid in the shadows. He counted to four before he heard a muffled gasp and the dropping of a large body. He stepped out of the shadows, and saw the guard knocked out on the ground. "Good work Kat." he whispered into the shadows.

"Thanks Law." said a voice as a female figure stepped out of the shadow. It turned out to be Kat Walnutstone.

"Let's get going, we don't want to be late." Law whispered. They headed down a hall, ran down a staircase, and ended up on a balcony. In the large room below stood a number of persons. One, cloaked in a large robe, seemed to be the center of attention, talking ludly while everyone watched. In a chair, a man was bound and gaged. Law and Kat swang down to the floor using ropes which hung from the ceiling. They landed quietly behind two of the onlookers, without being noticed. They then knocked them out. That alerted the rest of the onlookers, who turned and attacked the pair. Kat kept at them, while Law went to the cloaked figure. Just before Law was upon the figure, the man in robes drew out a knife and was about to murder the man tied to the chair. Law knocked the knife out of the figure's hands quickly.

"Ah, Lawrence Daggerpaine, glad you could join us." said the figure. Law then used his sword to draw back the hood to reveal the man within.

"Ah, Pearson Wright. Always glad to make it." replied Law as he handcuffed the figure. Cad Bane then walked into the room.

"I thought I had told you to wait, Lawrence." he said.

"Well, if i had, you would have a body and a rumor." Law replied.

"Take Pearson out of my sight," Cad ordered his soldiers. The soldiers took Pearson roughly and pulled him outside, and to the jail.

Chapter 1

"Oh look! Pearson is being hung tomorrow." said Bess Firebones as she opened a letter sent from Port Royal while on the Gen. Of Peace's private island, Peace Island.

"Thank God." Law said.

"I would like to go, since it was the fist case if the Sauveurs Pirates Jeu." Kat said.

"Well sure, IF you're ok with seeing a person fall, then hanging lifeless by the end of a rope." replied Law.

"YA!! Let's go!!!" Kat exclaimed.

"Fine, you can go. I've got better things to dp, like rebuild that lab...." Law said as he glared at Bill Plunderbones.

"Hey! I thought that was solic acid, not potassium." Bill defended. Right then, Edgar Wildrat came into the room.

"Law! Pearson wants one last request. to have a last visitor.... you." He said.

"Looks like I'm going after all." Law said as he put on his famous tricorne.

Law and the guild walked out of the fancy hotel the EITC (yes, they are pirates, but Law and Samuel Redbeard are friends) rented for them.

"I'm going to the jail. Anyone want to come with me?" Law asked.

"No, thanks. Bess and I are going to go shopping before the hanging." Kat replied.

"Ya, same. Lawless and I, along with the kids, are going on a hike." said Bounty Hunter Bill.

"Emerald and I are going to the beach." said Bill, taking Esmerelda's hand.

"Ok, I'll go alone then. Have fun guys." Law said as he started off for the jail. The jail was on the far side of the town, across the busy markets of Port Royal. Law had stopped at many venders peddling items. By the time he reached the jail, it was midday. The guards greeted him when he arrived.

"Hello, Lawrence. Seems like you've got a man in there that wants to seek audiance with the famous pirate sleuth who is responsible for his capture and soon to be execution." chuckled one of the guards.

"Well, if it's revenge he wants, he will have a hard time at finding it." Law replied tapping his sword that was aalways by his side. "And anyway, I'm not that famous." He then went inside the jail. It was dimly lit and muskey. In one cell, there was a burley man, muscular, and fully tattooed. Another was empty except for a skeleton. Finally, Law came upon the one that held Pearson. "I see you're enjoying your new lodgings."
