On an uninhabited island, finding a fruit with the size of an ordinary person's fist is a very difficult and dull thing.
Because in the process of searching, they not only need to divide but also avoid accidentally searching the same area.
In addition, they can't miss even a small corner, otherwise, they may miss the Logia-type Devil Fruit · The Mera Mera no Mi
That's right, the devil fruit that El and the others are looking for is the Mera Mera no Mi!
In the original manga, there is no picture of Ace finding the devil fruit on Sixis island.
However, after Ace's death, his official manga included the story of him finding the devil fruit on the island of Sixis and recruiting his first crewmate, Masked Deuce.
Therefore, El is 100% sure that the Mera Mera no Mi, is located on the island of Sixis.
Next, they only need to rummage through the entire Sixis Island, and they will be able to find the Logia-type Devil Fruit, even in the Logia type, it is a very high rank.
However, this search process is undoubtedly long and boring.
This is also what El calls a mental state challenge.
Fortunately, El is not looking for it alone, he has three good helpers by his side.
Nami's cartographer skill, and Carina's intelligent mind, allowed them to quickly draw a full map of Sixis Island, then divided the area and began to search for the devil fruit from the outside to inside.
For the first month, the group of four rummaged through the outlying forests, but found nothing, and ate all the food onboard.
At the same time, Kuina also spent her birthday on Sixis Island, becaming an eleven-year-old beautiful girl.
In the second month, the group of four began to climb the mountain to search, but there was still no gain.
The coast of Sixis Island was already full of bones of sea beasts.
It was not until the third month, which was November 17, 1510 of the Sea Circle Calendar, two months after Kuina's birthday, that they had rummaged through almost the entire Sixis Island.
In the gap where the huge rocks were stacked together, a small tree with a devil fruit covered in flame patterns was found.
"I finally found it.
I didn't expect it to be hidden in such a remote place."
El, who cut through the rock, put away his sword, and reached out to pick off the devil fruit.
Almost at the moment when the fruit was picked, the small tree suddenly began to wither at a speed visible to the naked eye, and soon died completely.
"What a magical thing, is this the legendary treasure of the sea"
The three girls, who witnessed this spectacle with their own eyes, gathered around El, staring at the devil fruit in El's hand, and exclaimed in amazement.
"Yes, this is the devil fruit that can make people soar to the sky, and it is also Logia-type Devil Fruit, The Mera Mera no Mi."
El nodded, then handed the devil fruit to Nami next to him, and said, "Nami, as long as you eat it, you will have the power to revenge on the Arlong Pirates."
However Nami didn't reach out to take it excitedly, but shook her head with a tangled expression.
"forget it, It's such a waste to give me such a precious thing.
Nii-san your strength is so strong, if you eat it, you will definitely become stronger."
Seeing Nami's expression, El couldn't help laughing, then forced the devil fruit into Nami's hand and touched her head, and encouraged her
"You have to learn to be confident, after all, you are my navigator.
What you have to do is not only to keep us safe at sea, but also be my crewmate who can share the pressure with.
Whether it's you, Carina or Kuina, you are my most cherished family."
"This is just the beginning.
I will look for other devil fruits in the future, so that you can stand by my side and share the pressure for me."
When he said the last sentence, he patted Carina and Kuina's fragrant shoulders, then looked at Nami, and encouraged her again: "So...
let your light shine, Nami!"
hurry up and eat it, Nami."
Carina took El's arm and also encouraged Nami.
Kuina also cheered on Nami.
Nami was moved with tears in her eyes and nodded vigorously.
Then she hold the devil fruit that was a little bigger than her fist and bite it hard.
In the next second, Nami's expression instantly ruined the atmosphere.
they saw that Nami seemed to have eaten some disguting food, her face turned purple and blue, and the sound of vomiting was about to go out of her mouth.
"Don't vomit it out, just take a bite."
El hurriedly reminded and looked at Nami with a serious face.
Hearing this, Nami hurriedly covered her mouth, and then, under the gaze of Carina and Kuina's wide-eyed, she swallowed the thing in her mouth with difficulty.
With a sound of grunting, Nami quickly gasped and said with a terrified expression: "What the hell is this, is it really a fruit"
"Is it that bad" Carina asked suspiciously.
"Would you like to try it"
Nami immediately handed the remaining devil fruit to Carina.
no thank you."
Carina waved her hand and laughed dryly.
Nami glanced at Carina, then looked at El with a look of dread "Nii-san, do i need to bite more"
El raised his eyebrows and asked, "Have you not felt the power in your body yet"
"Power in my body"
Nami was stunned for a moment, subconsciously feeling the changes in her body just now.
In the next instant, a high temperature erupted from Nami's body along with orange flames, making Carina and Kuina subconsciously pulled his arm and retreated for a distance.
they saw Nami's body, as if it was spontaneously combusting, and her whole body was covered with a layer of orange flames.
The remaining devil fruit that she held in her hand also made a sizzling sound from the orange flames because it already lost its power.
Looking at the elementalized Nami, El smiled and said, "From now on, you are the strongest of our team, the girl who ate the Logia-type-devil fruit, Mera Mera no Mi."
