Two years into his voyage in the Grand Line, Montblanc Noland and his crew have yet to discover anything. During a fierce storm, Noland tells his crew to dock at the nearby island because he heard the sound of a bell in the roaring thunder. Meanwhile on the island of Jaya, the populace is dying off one by one due to a disease present on the island. The ill priest on his deathbed exclaims that the only way to appease the gods and lift the curse on the island is by offering the most beautiful woman on Jaya as a sacrifice. That woman happened to be Mousse, Calgara's own daughter. Mousse was glad to throw away her life thinking she would end up being with the Great Kashi in the afterlife. A while later, Noland and his crew arrive in Jaya where Noland is shocked by how the island and its population had been decimated by disease. Noland immediately recognizes the disease as tree fever and asks his crew whether or not they have medicine on them. Back at the altar, Mousse is being sacrificed to Kashigami. Just as she's about to be devoured by the great beast, Montblanc Noland intervenes and defeats the beast, decapitating it with his sword. The people of Jaya are in shock that Noland had killed their god. In response, Noland declares that the disease can be cured without the need to kill anyone.
