Chapter 700: His own pace (referring to Luffy's)
Caribou got curious and returned... only to find the soldiers looking for him. He hides from them.
As the world tumbles in chaos, several of Doflamingo's clients tries to reach him.
One of his client is in middle of a civil war, and if they can't get the weapons from Doflamingo, they will lose.
Bonny is wearing a coat that covers all her body (to hide?), reading all this in a newspaper.
Many others around the world read the news, wondering what Dofla is up to... and if there are more information about this.
Included are some random pirates, thugs on streets... and Jinbe.
Meanwhile in Captain Kid's hideout in the New World..
Apooo (probably) yells out why their alliance is already revealed, and who the hell this news reporter Abusa is.
Apparently this news reporter is known for reporting multiple scoops in the recent times... (a contact in the underworld?)
Kid assumes Luffy & Law is also after a Yonkou, just like they are, and wonders who they are after!
Meanwhile in Dressrosa, the loli is sitting staring at countless den-den mushi ringing for the retired king.
Doflamingo is on the phone with Law. "It's me. I quit Shichibukai"
Luffy jumps on the phone and yes "Hello! Hello! This is Monkey D Luffy, the man who will be the pirate king!"
He then tells him they'll return Ceasar since it's a promise, but if you're Ceasar's boss who did all those horrible things to the kids and Brownbeard, he'll come kick his ass if he ever does it again. lol
Dofla ignores the threat, and asks where Luffy, the brother of Ace... has been for the past two years.
Luffy replies it's a secret he's not supposed to tell.
Dofla tells him he has something in his possession that Luffy wants.
Luffy assumes he has some delicious meat. Of course.
Law stops Luffy, warning him to not let him control the conversation at his pace.
Law tells Dofla to cut the chatter, and that he will return Caesar as promised.
Dofla first confirms his "business partner"'s saftey by listening to Caesar's voice.
Law tells him the exchange will be done eight hours from now, at the southern beach of Green Bit, located north of Dressrosa.
They will leave him there at 3PM, he can come recover him after that. There will be no contact.
Dofla says that's a shame, he would have liked a drink or two with Law all grown up.. but Luffy cuts the phone.
Luffy says Dofla was about to control the conversation at his pace again, while his eyes are still meat-on-bones.
Sanji is worried Dofla will bring his whole crew, but Law says that doesn't matter.
This whole returning Caesar business is really just to buy time.
The plan is to use this time to attack the SMILE factories on Dressrosa, but there is one problem... Law doesn't know where the factory is.
That was one crucial information he could not obtain, the factory may be hidden somewhere.
Law claims he has never been to Dressrosa.
Luffy is already thinking about the adventures on Dressrosa, and wants to also go to Wano soon after.
Law warns him they need to make plans, they can't just show up there, but Luffy is already not listening, he and the Strawhat crew are already on to talking about breakfast.
Law is sucked into the conversation, saying he's not fond of bread.... only to catch himself getting sucked into Luffy's "pace". LOL
