Law came back to the room carrying three plates of large pizzas; Bonney was standing in front of the window watching the ocean.

"This is very beautiful." Spoke Bonney softly, sensing his presence."Sailing under the ocean's surface watching these beautiful creatures." Continued Bonney as she watched a school of Regal Tang fish swim by.

Law placed the pizza plates on the table and walked towards her. He stood behind her and wrapped his lean arms around her slender waist.

"You can stay here and enjoy this scene every day." Whispered Law to her ear.

She felt her body heats up and blood rose to her cheeks "L…Law…umm…please…"mumbled Bonney shyly, she felt her throat dry up and couldn't finish her sentence.

Law chuckled briefly before moving his arms away from her "I am sorry! I'll go take a shower while you enjoy your pizza, Ok?" said Law.

"Ok, thank you." Replied Bonney quietly.

Law stood in the shower, allowing the hot water to clear his mind. He thought about whether to tell her how really feel about her, or it is better to wait for a while.

He turned off the water and pulled a towel, he cursed under his breath for not bringing clothes with him to the bathroom, now he had to walk out of the bathroom naked, she will definitely freak out and think of him as some sort of a pervert, He sighed and wrapped himself with the towel.

He walked out of the bathroom to see Bonney sitting on the bed "Why aren't you eating?" asked Law.

"I finished…Oh am so sorry…I…" said Bonney, embarrassed. She turned her face to the other side.

"I'm sorry, I forgot to take some clothes with me. Am just not used to getting dressed in the bathroom." Said Law as he opened his closet and looked for something to wear.

Bonney turned her head slowly so that she can secretly look at him, but unfortunately for her, he was already dressed in his black boxers.

'Damn! I missed a good show.' Thought Bonney and sighed in disappointment, yet she kept admiring his toned body while he got dressed.

"It is not polite to stare, you know" said Law teasingly.

"I am…I am sorry!" replied Bonney turning her head to the other side quickly.

"I was just kidding; you can stare if you want." Spoke Law seductively, turning her face towards him as he sat on the bed next to her.

She looked at him; he was dressed in a simple sleeveless white shirt and a pair of black jeans, she looked a bit disappointed.

He closed the gap between them and whispered to her "You look disappointed; you don't like what am wearing." Bonney felt her body set on fire 'Damn his sexy voice.' She cursed to herself.

She took a step back and sat a bit far from him "So aren't you going to tell me why did you save me?" asked Bonney , trying to hide her embarrassment .

"Well, I want you to join my crew." Answered Law.

"What! Don't you even dare think about it, no am joining your crew as a mere pirate I am a captain and a supernova, no way am going to be a simple crew member." Shouted Bonney standing up front of him.

"Even if I lost my crew, I refuse to be treated in anything less than a captain. I'll find another crew and become a captain once more." Continued Bonney.

She remembered what happened to her; how Blackbeard defeated her and almost raped her, how her crew betrayed her, how she was almost dead. She knew that without Law's help she would have been dead. She knew he was strong, stronger than her, that's why she couldn't stand what he offered her. Tears began to fall but she stopped them and fought her urge for crying.

Law sat silently on the bed and watched her shiver and fight her tears, he knew she was torn on the inside and that she needed help. He couldn't stand the scene front of him, but he wanted to give her all the time she needed to let all her feelings out.

He stood up and hugged her, placing her head on his chest and slowly stroking her hair, "It is Ok to cry, Bonney. It is Ok to feel weak; there is nothing wrong about it." Whispered Law to her.

She buried her face in his chest and sobbed hardly; he patted her head and rubbed her back gently, trying to make her feel better.

"I am weak…that's why my crew betrayed me…that's why Blackbeard forced himself on me..." she said between her sobs.

Law felt pain in his heart, he couldn't tolerate watching her cry, it was too painful for him.

"Bonney, why I saved you and why I want you to join my crew is because I love you. I don't care you are strong or not, captain or not, I just…love you." Spoke Law softly.

She stopped crying and raised her head and looked at him with teary eyes 'she is gorgeous' thought Law as he stared into those teary, purple eyes.

"What did you just say?" asked Bonney.

"I said I love you, I really do love you Bonney." Answered Law, pulling her closer to him.

He raised his hand to caress her cheek, wiping the tears away with his thumb. He leaned his head towards her, closing the gap between their lips, and catching her bottom lip between his lips.

The kiss was intense but short, Bonney broke the kiss and stepped back "Law , I … I need some time to fully understand this , I've been through a lot and I…"spoke Bonney softly.

"Yes sure, I understand. I am sorry if I pushed myself on you Bonney, I didn't mean to make you feel uncomfortable." Apologized Law, Bonney only stared at him.

"Anyway, it is time to sleep. Goodnight." said Law breaking the odd silence between them.

He opened the room's door and was about to leave when her voice stopped him "Where are you going?" she asked, concerned that she might have hurt his feelings.

"I'll go check on my crew, it has been a while since the last time I saw them. You go get some sleep , you still need to recover." Spoke Law not facing her.

"Ok goodnight." Spoke Bonney softly.

"Goodnight. "Replied Law walking out of the room and shutting the door behind him.

As he sat at the kitchen table, Law thought about the kiss; 'Maybe I rushed it' he thought to himself. He thought about her last words and how they made him feel hurt, as if she politely rejected him ' This is silly Law , she has been through a lot lately , she is not even thinking clearly, just give her some time.' He thought again.

Lying on the bed, Bonney couldn't help but to think about she said to him. She didn't want to hurt him, but obviously she did. 'I am so stupid! I shouldn't push him away like this. I really like him but somehow I still can't trust him. Why not trust him, huh? He is been so nice to me; he cured me , took care of me , listened to me when I needed someone to talk to and even remembered my favorite food after two years ! 'Thought Bonney blaming herself for hurting him.

'Oh Bonney you'll be lying if you denied your feelings toward him.' Continued the pink haired beauty in her thoughts.

Eventually, she sighed and closed her eyes to sleep.
