"LUFFY!" she screamed partially out of fear, partially out of excitement. He was there, he was actually there! Perhaps she had imagined it. Why would he be here? But there it was again; his voice ringing out across the town.
"Nami! Where are you!? What’s wrong?!"
As if to answer his question, one of the dogs let out a howl and a number of them ran off in the direction of his voice.
"Luffy!" she shouted again as the remaining pups closed in on her. She continued to fight the one holding her down but it was no use. The dog jerked her arm, ripping the flesh open. The navigator screamed in pain.
"They’ll kill me Luffy! Hurry!"
His voice was much closer now and she heard the yelping of dogs from down the road. Her heart overflowed with relief. As long as he was with her, she had nothing to fear. He was her protector, and he would not allow these beasts to kill her.
"DANG MUTTS!" he shouted, then she saw the shadow of a dog fly through the air, right at the pack surrounding her. It collided with the group and the others scattered, quite startled.
She saw a light coming rapidly down the road and the dogs all tensed in alert. The one holding her arm began to slowly make its way back, dragging her along with it. She brought up her leg and kicked it with all of her might in the side. It yelped, but didn’t release her from its grasp; rather, it returned the attack by ripping its sharp claws across her legs. She winced in pain but continued to struggle with the beast. Looking down the road, she finally saw him. In one hand he held a lamp and in the other was a closed black umbrella. The light reflected against the soaked captain. He was wearing a black hoodie and running at an unnatural speed towards her.
"GOMU GOMU NOO-!" he shouted.
"Over here Luffy!" she shouted.
The dog clasping her arm was suddenly blasted away by Luffy’s powerful fist and went flying back down the road. The wolves were now all focusing on the intruder in alarm. Some began to howl and some ran at him.
Without missing a beat, Luffy charged at the pack. He kept his umbrella in the same hand as the lamp and used the other to fight off the attacking dogs. Jumping over the ones going for his legs, and ducking under the ones going for his neck he made good time in reaching his navigator. She stood up holding her arm and ran to him.
Luffy embraced her with his free arm and they stood there a moment holding each other tightly. Nami began to sob into his chest and he stood there silently, letting her pour out her overwhelming emotions. His navigator had just had a very traumatic experience and she needed his support. The wolves had retreated for the time being but he figured they would be back.”
