one piece - a new journey IC
Alex stood on the top of the forward sail, from one hand extended a thin cord of steel anchored into the main mast, he was up there like every other day looking out over the ocean at the rising sun and looking out for land. It had been nearly a full week since they had left the last island, their journey was slow at first but with the others joining the crew on the last few islands they had managed to pick up speed and power, and now they were headed towards the grand line; but first was the island of hopes and dreams, the last island in the north blue before the grand line, the island of Alvion.
Alex looked out over the bright see, his mechanical eyes refocusing to compensate for the light, and there it was a speck of land on the horizon; Alex smiled behind his mask before calling out to the others still sleeping on the ship, “LAND HO!!!”. Alex pulled in the cable tether holding him to the mast before sliding down its length, landing softly on the deck like a cat, he moved over to the rear deck and took hold of the wheel turning the rudder slightly to adjust the ships heading towards the island.
Alex stayed at the helm until some of the others came up on deck, once they started coming up he said “there t is people… the island of dreams… the carnival island at the end of the north blue, Alvion” he said “now… how about we get to work and get ready to bring the ship into the harbour”
