The lawyer wasn´t in a good place. Since Mr. Loki died he felt a weird empty place in his heart he wasn´t able to fill. No matter how hard he tried to bury himself in work. No matter how many liars or traitors he hunt down, he wasn´t able to move on. This was a very new sensation for a man who´s personal history was filled with dead bodies. One, that he wasn´t handling very well.
Eve, his assistant noticed it and tried her best to cheer him up, but to no avail. And Michael himself was feeling lost. He didn´t slept much, barely ate and couldn´t focus even on the most elemental things. He wanted to do something big. He needed to do something big, some rite of passage, something, that would honour the memory of his oldest friend and allowed him to move on. Something like the biggest heist that happened in the recent history of the Loguetown.
The rumours were running through the local underworld for some time. That the Marines were transporting rare and powerful Devil Fruit there, for one of their officers picked for a further promotion. Obviously, no one would be crazy enough to try and steal it. Even Michael in his grief wasn´t suicidal enough to pick a fight with the fighting strength that was usually protecting shipments like these except, he got a word from a trusted source, that this time, the security would be relatively low. Not because the Marines would be running out of resources, but simply because that someone high in the chain of command decided to do it quietly. Masking the fruit as a regular shipment of documents and other stuff that was coming regularly from the Headquarters.
It would be a good plan if someone didn´t leaked that information and if it didn´t found its way to Michael.
