"Hey, Jordan!" Lulu yelled. "You forgot your hammer!" He picked up said tool and threw it to the half-built deck of the ship. Jordan caught it just as it arched in the air.
"Thanks, Lulu!" she yelled and went back to work.
Despite her young age of nineteen, Jordan had been in Galley-La for almost three years, and she was friends with the other workers like she'd known them all her life.
"Lucci, could you pass me those boards?" she yelled to the foreman, who was up in the crow's nest. He picked a few boards to himself and dropped about ten of them for Jordan to catch. She quickly caught them one at a time and stacked them beside the mast. It was no secret to the other workers that she could use Soru. She bent down to pick up her drink and heard a raspy voice a few feet in front of her.
"Argh, Jordan! Don't bend down like that when you're wearing that shirt! There are men working here you know! What, do you mean to tempt us?" Paulie yelled angrily. Jordan was used to this. She neared the the foreman and put an arm around his shoulders, and he froze and paled.
"My dear Paulie," she said. Around her, Kaku, Tilestone and Lucci looked at them, snickering. They enjoyed her 'talks' with Paulie, and got to see them increasingly more often. "Remember my clothes when we first met?" she continued. Paulie shivered at the thought of mini-shorts and a sports bra. "The weather's been getting hotter lately, and the work more tiring." Kaku's cheeks were inflating from contained laughter, and Tilestone had one hand covering his smirk and one clutching his stomach. "I'm thinking of wearing… 'fresher' clothes, if you catch my drift…" she whispered in his ear. Paulie shivered once, and fainted. Kaku and Tilestone couldn't contain their laughter anymore, and released it loudly. Lucci just laughed briefly and silently in his spot.
Jordan had already changed her usual clothing to a pair of jeans and a sleeveless shirt because of Paulie, and if that wasn't enough for him she would just torment him every time he questioned her ways, much to the foremen's amusement.
She went back to her place to nail the boards in their places on the floor of the deck.
•••a few days later•••
There was a commotion on the dock. Jordan looked up from her lunch to see Lucci and Paulie arguing with some scary-looking men. She recognized their leader from a wanted poster; Mikazuki, captain of the Big Helmet pirates. She stood up and walked towards them.
"What's up guys?" she said. Paulie's eyes swiftly moved towards Jordan, then focused back in the situation.
"Now, what have we got here?" Mikazuki said. "What's your name, girl?"
"Huh. How would you like to join my crew, hottie? We have a very special position saved for you," he said.
"Oh, I'd love not to," she said, casually looking at her nails (N/A like her picture).
"Wow, not only refusing to pay us but trying to steal our shipwright, eh?" Paulie said.
"Refusing to pay?" Jordan said inquisitively.
"Yeah, these guys don't work well at all! I refuse to pay for the lousy job th–" he got cut off by a wooden board that hit him and sent him flying backwards, toppling over his subordinates.
Kaku, who had been carrying those, smirked and said sarcastically, "Whoops, I'm sorry, I lost my grip."
"Ooh, aren't you a bad boy?" Jordan said to Kaku teasingly, then turned back at Mikazuki. As he got up on his feet, she disappeared, and the pirate was soaring through the air and crashed on the wall of Dock One. Where he had been standing now was Jordan, adjusting the fingerless gloves on her hands.
She turned and looked at the other pirates. "Who's next?"
The pirates charged at her, and the shipwrights also did. They were outnumbered by the pirates five to one, but the pirates were still easily defeated. Outside the fence, citizens were cheering for the shipwrights.
"Those were some weak pirates," Kaku said.
Jordan nodded. "I didn't even have to use my Devil Fruit."
