It was a busy day in the market as Kae lurked about, searching for work. Several large trade caravans were preparing to leave. The men and women heading them were loudly advertising the need for skilled guards. Unfortunately, it wasn't work suited to the slightly built girl. Trade caravans wanted the big and the buff. She moved on, looking for someone advertising work more in her element. Moving packages was becoming her specialty. 

The longer she looked, though, the more appealing a return to picking pockets seemed. She knew better than to shit where she ate - i.e., rob a Hanza citizen - but there were plenty of outsiders that came through. She was running out of bullets. After a while Kae determined to take whatever opportunity presented itself next. Work or some schmuck she could charm into disarming their guard.

Danny wandered aimlessly through the crowd, seemingly uncaring, but her sharp eyes scanned the faces around her with concealed interest. Danny was on one of her recruitment missions, hoping to find a pretty woman who was looking for something new.

 

This trip had been a busy in that regard, but she'd caught up with a few of her old pals the night before and was now regretting it. Her head throbbed lightly, the lights hurt her eyes, and her mouth had that unpleasant taste like a rat had crawled in it and died. She had only herself to blame however. With a grunt she wandered back over to one of the stacks of boxes and leaned against it with a grunt, closing her eyes and rubbing them wearily.

Kae was perched on top of a stack of crates when a woman approached. The woman's line of work wasn't immediately apparent, but she had a tough look to her. She also looked worn as she leaned against the wooden boxes. Kae looked down over top her head for a few moments. The woman wasn't a local, she was fairly certain of that much. 

"Long night?" she asked from her perch up top. She'd learned a long time ago that people rarely looked up. That made the stacked crates in Hanza's trade market ideal places to hang around for a good view.

Danny congratulated herself mentally on not shrieking like a banshee and flailing about as a voice sounded directly above her head and close. Her current... affliction, however, prevented her from stopping an involuntary twitching and tensing completely.

 

She quickly whipped her head backwards, viewing a pretty young woman above her. The fact that the angle made the view upside down made her frown somewhat and she righted herself with as much dignity as she could muster as she turned and looked up. A slow smirk graced her lips as she looked her up and down. "You could say that. My friends here are apparently barbarians with the rot-gut they drink."

She couldn't help the snort and chuckle that followed the woman's words. She grinned broadly, and smugly, as she shoved her hands into her pockets. "Okay. Touché." She stared up at the woman curiously. "So why you playing canary and perched up there, little bird?"
