Prologue: Louge Town Port
The usually bustling port of Louge Town is mostly empty with only a few ships and sailors around. A quiet tension seems to fill those few souls here and many keep one eye to the sea. Marines still make regular patrols and fishermen still bring in their catch but few non locals seem to be around. The clear sky and calm waves seem to take no mind though and a cool breeze brings constant sea air to blow away the smell of fish.

Prologue: Louge Town Port
Eska steps off the Navy ship bringing her to shore on the island. The port doesn't look very busy despite it being practically the opening to the Grand Line from the East blue. It's true that since the battle at Marineford the presence of their forces less noticeable, but she didn't think they were this thinly spread.

The smell of the air is noticeably more calm than in those waters. This era is full of pirate tyranny which has left her feeling uncomfortable out on the open sea, and yet she has to encapsulate the methods, at least the perception of it, to those that see her. She must become the pirate she fears in order to stop them; quite a twist.

With her few precious belongings slung over her shoulder in a standard issue sack, she scans for anyone she knows before heading to the per-determined meeting place... at a bar.

"A bar? Hmf," she pouts, walking the docks.

While there are no familiar faces in the crowd there are familiar sights. Marines and townspeople working the docks. Your eye is caught by one particular ship. It seemed to be a civilan ship but there were quite a few marines overseeing its loading.

Eska's eye dart back-and-forth, analyzing the oddity. She doesn't want to interfere with their duties, but...

"Curious."

She marches over to the marines and tries to walk passed them, making eye contact with them as she attempts to stroll through.

Two of the younger marines seem more more than happy to let Eska walk by her confidence giving them enough pause for her to slip by.  Unfortunately an older marine steps in front of her before she can walk up the plank and get a better look at the ship. He gives her an apologetic look.

"I'm sorry Maam but only authorized personal past this point. I'm sorry but unless you've been cleared by Captain Jolt I have to ask you to leave."

"Understood, sir."
The salty, humid air blows between them as Eska records what she's seeing.

"Permission to ask why we've got so much muscle for a civy ship?"

She wasn't about to try and push her way through just to satisfy the mystery. There's no knowing what trouble she could get into if she went into an unauthorized area after being told not to. Maybe she should go find Jolt and just pester him about it. The higher ups in the Navy can be... eccentric at times, and can have some quite loose lips. This guy could be like them.

Besides, if she doesn't see it herself, she'll probably hear about it over a transmission. No need to make enemies just before embarking on a secret mission.

Prologue: Louge Town Port
The marine raises an eyebrow at Eska and then gives her a smile. "At ease soldier. Its good to see some other marines are still around." He shakes his head a scowl on his face though probably not for Eska. "Captain says its for an important mission and with all the recent attacks we can't be too careful."

At that the other marines that you had passed up looked around a little nervously glancing back only to straighten up when they saw the scowl on their superiors face.

Eska nods her head and smiles back at him. Her eyes look at him, and then out to the sea behind him as if peering over the horizon to distant islands.

"Right. The waves have been choppy with few hands to man them, haven't they?" she softly spoke. Chaos has been at the helm of the world since Ace's execution. So many men lost that day... the Navy spread thin, it's hard not to be reminded every day.

Her face lightens up and she manages to stutter out a nervous farewall:
"W-well, if it's important enough, I'll find out eventually. Sorry to bother you gentlemen. Buh-Bye!"

She waves goodbye and continues her walk of the port. She follows foot traffic and finds herself heading to the market.
