The Sangakura swamp is the biggest swamp of Jahan. It is halfway situated in Azuriya and halfway in Furen.
It spans several hundred kilometers. The weather is hot and humid with constant flooding of areas. There are many water channels and lagoons with bands of forest trees and vegetation along waterways accompanied by dry woodlands.

Antonio's POV
"Shit..."
Was the first word Antonio uttered as he sat up in the sticky marsh.
He scanned for others, but to his dismay, he saw no-one.
Merrick and Lovino were no where in sight. 
He took a double take.
 Lovino isn't here.  He thought, slightly panicked. 
The man gulped and sat up, wincing in pain.
He shakily stood up and scanned the muck once more. 
His beautiful boat. Gone.
His precious Lovino. Gone.
Rich Boy who he was starting to befriend. Gone.
Everyone's gone.
He realized in horror.
Almost everyone and everything he was begging to love/know.
That's when Antonio broke down.
The man who many people had grown to fear was weeping like a child.
Alone in a marsh.
Just bawling his heart out.
Over the feelings he wasn't supposed to have.

There was a wading sound coming from the water and then silence. Suddenly a voice called out to Antonio.
"Hello, are you lost?"
"Hello, do you need help?" another voice called.
"Are you alone? Do you need to find your way?" A light flickered out further into the swamp. "Just follow the light, it will help you out."

Antonio raised a skeptical eyebrow, immediately embarrassed. There was indeed a light... But traps were never out of the question.
"I do... Show yourself." he said, wiping some swamp muck off his pants.

The voices remained quiet but the light flickered back and forth as if tempting him to come with them.

Antonio stood in the same place.
"C'mon, show me."
He said, crossing his arms.

There was a wading sound but nothing appeared out of the swamp, "Hurry, hurry," the voices suddenly implored urgently.
The light in the swamp became two then three. From the distance, it was evident they were lanterns of some sort.

Antonio raised a catious eyebrow.
"Fine."
He said, rolling his eyes.

Antonio stepped into the murky waters, there was no activity.
He went further.

The lanterns continued to glow, luring him further, the voices whispering encouragement.

As the water was to his chest, he suddenly felt a slimy tentacle wrap around his waist and he was jerked off his feet and lifted into the air.

It was then he saw the gaping mouth of a monster with sharp teeth.

Antonio swore rapidly, knowing he should of trusted his insticts.
His first reaction was, believe it or not, relief. Relief it wasn't pulling him under.
He gripped the tentacle with one hand and attempted to pry it off, thrashing with all his might to get it off.
His other hand was pulling off the same tentacle, but Antonio was a lefty, so this hand was stronger.
At last Antonio pulled himself free, only to fall into pitch black waters.
He came to the surface gasping, as another tentacle wrapped around his leg, pulling him up again.
Antonio was dripping wet with disgusting black muck, which bothered him so.
He always tried to be as clean as possible, determined to proove that the pirates-are-gross-&-dirty stereotype was wrong.
That was the least of his concerns though.
The creature pulling Antonio to its mouth and almost succeeded in biting him.
"Not today~"
Antonio said in a sing song tone swerving away from the beast, pulling out a small knife he still had in his pocket, severing the tentacle 'round his ankle.
That's convenient.
Antonio thought, smirking.
Antonio was the shit at swimming, so he swam as fast as he could, further and further away from the injured beast.
He hit land in an hour, and GOD! Did he need new clothes.

He felt the tip of a sword under his chin.
"Oh....what a cute swamp creature. I wonder how much I'll get for him." A female voice said. Antonio looked up and saw 2 people.
A man and a woman. From their clothes, and their arsenal of weapons, it was clear they were bounty hunters.

"Don't you know it's dangerous to take a swim in the swamp waters?" The woman teased.

Posted 9/5/11
Antonio had dealt with this shit from his nemises Arthur, but really, these guys?
"I'm just that badass."
Antonio smirked, moving away from the sword, and grinning.
"You want me? Too bad... Because I just am not feeling that, Mrs. And Mr. UGLY."
"Now let's play nice, I don't want to have to kill you two~ because, oh! I really really want to." 
Antonio said slyly, a grin on his face. 
"If you excuse me," 
He said, walking off into the forests of the swamp.

"My my, what a temper," the woman mused.
"Heh, he looked like a wimp. I say he'll be limbless by the end of the day." The man snorted. "If not worse."
The woman chuckled. "Let's get these items rounded up and get out of here, Im feeling like a nap." she said looking at the list in her hand.

Antonio heard their conversation and snickered airilly.
That wasn't a temper~ what asses~
He grinned,
"Wouldn't be talking~!"
he laughed, walking off deeper.
He just had to find Merrick and Lovi, then everything would be fine~

Antonio accidentally stepped on something and suddenly a net jerked up, trapping him tightly as he was hauled up.

He heard laughter and saw the bounty hunters.

"Awww, did you activate one of our traps?" The woman asked mockingly, "Don't bother trying to cut it, its chakra and metal infused ropes imported especially from the dwarven caverns of Umoba. You wont be able to cut through them with average blades."

"What should we do? Use him as bait?" The man asked.

The woman laughed, "Yeah, let's."
