Smoker, Tashigi, and the marines that came with them got on board their ship. Smoker gave the order to get things ready so that they could leave Marinefold. Smoker sighed and looked at Tashigi.
“Tashigi-” he started.
“I’ll make sure no one bothers you,” she finished for him.
Smoker nodded and went into his office. He cleared off some space on his desk before he took out his rocks and placed them on it. Smoker started to stack them. He was trying to keep his mind off of the one person, that was dear to him, he had lost today. He had five stacked already and had a sixth one in his hand, hovering over the five.
A hand was placed on his back, causing Smoker to knock over the stack. Smoker looked behind him to see who he had to beat up for disturbing him. There was no one, but the wall. Smoker blinked for a few minuets before going back to stacking his rocks.
He had the fourth one on the third and then grabbed the fifth rock. He was hovering it over the stack again. A pair of lips kissed him on his cheek. The stack fell again. Smoker placed a hand on the kissed cheek and looked. No one was there yet again. Smoker felt a shiver go down his spine. He, once again, went back to stacking.
This time only three were stacked and a fourth one in his hand not even hovering over it yet. A pair of arms wrapped around Smoker’s neck. Smoker froze for a bit. He looked to his right to see someone’s arm with an A, a x out S, a C, and a E. Smoker’s eyes widen before he looked to his left. He saw part of Ace’s face through the hair, he was grinning his usual grin. Smoker reached over to Ace to see if he was real. Smoker’s hand went right through Ace’s head. Smoker swallowed as he felt his heart sink. Ace looked at him.
“I’m sorry,” he said, “you can’t touch me.”
Smoker looked back at his rocks.
“It’s fine…” he said.
Ace pulled away and stand at the side of the desk. Smoker looked back at him. Ace wasn’t grinning anymore.
“They could only give me a few minuets,” he said, “I wanted to tell you that I will always love you and will always be in your heart.”
Smoker let a small frown show. Ace grinned again.
“My Taisi,” he started, “I will be fine. Don’t worry. Just promise me you will die as an old man and not throw your life away.”
“I promise…” he said.
Ace lean down and kissed Smoker on the lips this time.
“I’ll be watching over you,” Ace said fading away, “farewell my Taisi.”
Ace was gone with a blink of an eye. Smoker looked back at his rocks. He picked up the fourth with a shaking hand. When he placed it down the stack fell. Smoker put his other hand over his eyes. Tears came down his cheeks and landed on the desk. Fire fist, his fire fist was gone, but he knew now that Ace will always be watching over him.

Did this this way, because I suck at drawing One Piece characters.
