It had been a few days since Law had planned out his attack with Atlas and the crew, and they were now in transit, on an incrediby impressive ship. A few more followed behind them, to ensure that his advancement towards Florida would go smoothly. He'd been continuing to think over exactly how to best conduct this mission since they'd set sail. He'd also been given a uniform to represent his newfound allegiance. He wasn't that keen on it at first, but to be honest, it had grown on him fairly quickly. It also garnered respect, which he enjoyed.
It was nearing three in the morning now, and they were finally approaching the small island. He meant to attack immediately, and barring any complications, that was exactly what he would do. All lights on the ships had been darkened, and night vision goggles aided them in navigation. Law had located a small, discreet bay where the ships would almost certainly go unnoticed, which was luckily very near their final destination. They were entering it now.
He had been heavily planning for the past several days, reconsidering every option multiple times. He'd also been thinking about what he would do if there were any patrol ships that they happened upon. The ships were equipped with radio jammers, so immediate communication wouldn't be a problem. Obviously if they were seen they'd have to eliminate the patrol though, which meant that eventually it would be wondered about. He determined that it wouldn't be a problem, because they'd be striking too soon for it to raise much of an alarm.
In the end it turned out not to be a problem. They reached the shore without incident, and he asked the small group that would be accompanying him for the initial mission to assemble in his quarters for a final discussion. They did so promptly, which he appreciated, and then the discussion was underway.
"I'm pleased to see that you've all arrived so quickly. I've heard good things about all of you, so I'm sure this will go without a hitch. If there are any final concerns or questions about the plan, now would be the time to bring them up. Also, if any unexpected problems arise, you all obviously have the ability to react to them as you think is best. Do remember that we're being covert here though."
They all understood, but none of them had anything in particular to bring up. With that out of the way the began to move out. It was going to be a long night, and they still had several miles worth of walking before they'd be able to get started. Law wasted no time, giving everything a final once over, and then they departed.
