Early morning at the next day, Pekoms set sail towards BM.
Few hours ago:
Chopper: (bandaging Pekoms) This will make do, you should be able to heal a lot by the time you reach the party.
Pekoms: Thank you, gao!
Nami: How do you know your way to the tea party?
Pekoms: Don't worry, we all know how to go back to (Big) Mum, gao.
Nami: Okay then. Luffy, please bring back Sanji and come back safe, both of you.
Zoro: Peh, must we bring back that ero-cook? We may do better without him. (ignored by others)
Chopper: Yes, please bring him back.
Usopp with a scared worried look.
Luffy: (wide-grin) Shishishi, don't worry. I WILL get him back!
Pekoms: I hope this works. (looking ahead with a shadowed figure beside him)
Few hours later, a commotion at Whale Forest. The Strawhats arrives. The Minks are fighting against the samurais.
Nami: Oh no! This is NOT good.
A Mink: (firecely attacking) Shut up! Don't you dare to associate yourself with our saviors. Its a disgrace!
Kin: But is true! Oh wait, there they are. Zoro-dono! Help to explain to them I am with you guys.
Those Strawhats turn the other way while the Minks look on. (">_>)
Minks: All these are your fault, samurais! Guardians, kill!
Fast forward to the location of Big Mom's Tea Party. Vessel docks and Pekoms step onto land.
Pekoms: (to an underling) Tell Mama I have returned gao.
Underling: And this? (pointing to another figure)
Pekoms: He is my fellow Mink from Zou.
???: Yo... I mean, growl.
Pekoms: (slapped the "fellow Mink" on the head; whispering) You are a dog Mink!
Luffy in dog mink disguise: Oh yes. Woof, woof!
Shift focus into a room.
Sanji: (in full white tux, face shadowed from view) ...
A large man in shadow appears at the door.
???: Its been a long while, San.
