Gazing down upon the far away sea beneath them, Law drank in all the joys of life that gave him light. Everything was here, in the sky. Everything he needed, anyway. Looking over at the wolf perched beside him, the pirate absentmindedly reached out and pet the beast before hearing the voice in his head, reminding him this was his teammate and not a pet. Strax had a barrage of questions, though all of them things the pirate had given much thought in his Captain's Quarters the night before. Leaning against the railing and resting his head on his hand, Law looked over at Charlotte, who had commented on the very thing that had made planning difficult. For a moment he looked out into the sky, the expression on his face seeming almost bored.
"Well, to be honest it's hard to say. Not many on this world have even made it to the island." His blue gaze fell back down towards the sea, a slight frown on his face. "On this world, many perils lurk in the waters. Many pirates don't have an easy time of it here. We're lucky that we're able to soar over it all." He had heard of this island from the locals, but they had been the only source of information other than what few pirates or sailors told him at the port. Many perished or returned without having ever seen the banks of the fabled cursed island surrounded in mist.
"We should reach our destination midday, which is perfect. Most pirates sleep in once they've set up a base. We'll be catching them in the middle of their breakfast." A cocky smirk emerged on the pirates face as he winked at his comrades. Law hadn't heard any rumors about the drawbacks of the Aztec curse, not knowing how to really damage the pirates at all. "Ideally, I'm looking to avoid an all out 'storm-the-gates' situation. The pirates are damned near impossible to kill. I'm hoping more that we can sneak in, grab the treasure and take 'em by surprise if any are aware."
"As for the landing..." At this mention, Law simply beamed at the green wolf with a devilish smile that bore nothing but mischievous energy. "We're going to drop in on 'em from above." The airship they were on was able to 'park' in midair without expending any fuel. This was mostly due to the suspension rotors Law had installed, as well as a sophisticated Graviga-G module that he had installed into a suspension rig. Because of this, they would be able to 'anchor' the boat (metaphorically speaking of course) above the island.
Law thought it a brilliant plan. Hearing Neku’s mention of a ‘pick-me-up’, the pirate cupped his hand and hollered after the young mercenary trainee as he departed to the hull below: ”There’s some breakfast out front of your door!” The sun was finally awake, having risen out of the horizon line to greet the day with its radiance. Hopefully the sail stayed smooth. So far, they hadn’t run into any issues.
He wondered what his comrades thought of the strategy he had concocted, well, at least the ones that chose to stick around.
