After a bit of deliberation, Yu decided to take a bite and feel the power that would come with eating the mysterious fruit.
He took a bite and swallowed, feeling the bolus slide down his throat.
PWEH! PSSH! PLEH! PLEH!
[That was horrible, it felt like someone put a dried dog turd in my mouth. That someone being me…] Yu grimaced.
Putting aside the thought of dried dog turd. He remained still, waiting for the inexplicable power to come to him as tried feeling for it.
One second… Two seconds
He did not feel any change
[It doesn’t seem to be poisonous, but there also seems to be no apparent ability that is showing… hayy] Yu sighed, his face showing a clearly disappointed look.
Yu don’t know what ability the fruit he ate might have even if he did saw some illustrations of the devil fruits and their powers at the net before he came into this world. Sadly, his memories were betraying him as he can’t recall shite.
Since he did not feel the emergence of a fruit ability, his decision to bite the mysterious fruit at a whim looked like a horrible, horrible decision.
[Eh, forget it] A disappointed Yu shook his head.
As Yu starts to practice again to clear his head, one of his punches suddenly showed a baffling phenomenon.
[What!?] A startled Yu said as he looked at his fists.
He felt it, he felt the movement of chakra to his hand. Followed by the movement, the space he punched into looked like shattered glass, although it was quite small.
Yu cannot hide his excitement when he noticed
[Is this the ability of my devil fruit?] thought Yu
[It looks and feels familiar… is this?]
Elated, he quickly tried to replicate his feat. Readying himself, he punched the empty area the same way.
He heard the same sound from the place his fist touched. Space as if it were ice, started cracking and spread through the air.
Suddenly, a surge of power erupted from the space he punched to the direction his first targeted.
GBBBRRGGROOOUUUUMMMM! GRK! KKK!
The ground shook, a small fissure showed itself from the space his power surged and traveled through the ground.
He recovered his fist, as Yu showed his surprised face with his mouth open.
[This ability, one of the strongest fruits in the world of One Piece, a fruit that started the War of the Best, the Gura-Gura no Mi!!] Yu said to himself
After eating the fruit, he could produce earthquakes, air quakes, seaquakes, he could even produce a quake that would have its epicenter on a human itself.
If he develops this power to the extreme, he could even have the power to destroy this world.
He excitedly clenched his fist and looked at it with surprise and thrill. With the power of this fruit, he wouldn’t even have to practice ninjutsu.
After a while, Yu finally calmed down
[It is incredible, to get the power of Edward Newgate, but it seems a little different] Yu thought
He thought to test the power one more time to a tree. He walked towards the tree, stopped when he decided the distance was enough. Yu took a stance, and the characteristic transparent white halo formed around his clenched fist. The light produced by the halo was still weak, but it would do for now.
The next moment Yu punched towards the trunk of the tree.
His fist did not touch the trunk and was still a way off from the tree, but his fist felt that he hit the air physically.
Cracks in the air formed and spread to its surroundings. It seemed that space itself shattered. The crack itself, he thought, was still small.
The thick tree took the full brunt of his attack and shook. Leaves were even falling from the shaking the tree took.
[My power is still small, I still need to train continuously] said Yu while nodding slightly.
Using his power, he felt that he used his chakra a bit. His devil fruit power might be connected to his chakra network, like using a blood-line limit.
Although the size of his power was directly linked to his physical strength. Also, if he could use the eight gates, a punch that could break the moon would not be impossible.
In addition, chakra consumption of his ability is minimal. The most important goal is to improve the strength of his body, his taijutsu!
The stronger his taijutsu, the stronger his devil fruit power. For now, even disrupting a rank C ninjutsu is very difficult, as his level is still too low.
To strengthen his body, he might need the techniques of Ē. Techniques that are a closely guarded clan secret of the Hidden Cloud. Yu’s eyes glimmered in hope, yet it faltered since it was unreachable for now.
Yu snapped from his brooding moment to set his mind to his immediate goal, which is to strengthen himself and increase his chance to find these secret techniques.
As he readies himself to train again, Yu suddenly thought of an important issue.
