In a last ditch effort to stop the man, he stopped him with his fruit but not before he could wrap his limbs around him. "Damn... It won't stop me but it's definitely going to slow me down..." He started coughing as he inhaled the smoke before getting an idea. He stops holding the man with his fruit and instead focuses on his free hand with the spear that wasn't in the legion pirate. He starts spinning it, creating a vacuum of sorts to hold the smoke at bay as he slowly works his way through the ship with the man on him. He may have been saving the man too depending on where his spear struck but he didn't care. Better to live to fight another day.
