Market Place

Post  Rin Tachibana on Wed Dec 06, 2017 7:35 pm



Being the absolute center of the Merchant District's trade, the Market Place was a common thoroughfare of all manners of people. From the city's commonplace citizenry, military patrols adorned in their magic enchanted Samurai armor, to the merchants and nobility mingling with the influx of foreigners visiting the proud country. Among these were also the riffraff, and undesirables who pulled their asses from the Poor District to panhandle and beg for Okane Tsuba or Gilex coins or bank notes. Others, like Rin-Rin here, made her living relieving the intermingled bodies of all the above of their hard earned coin. Slipping through like a blade in the crowd, the cutpurse could make a modest profit on evenings such as this. Rin was already in possession of an assortment of coin that could give her a hot meal and a place to sleep for the night, with a bit left over for tomorrow perhaps for breakfast. I could go for another sweep, day's still bright. She thought, being a stubborn one, but couldn't help but feel some pride liberating riches from the nobility.

The eighteen year old weaved through the crowd again, subtly slipping her hand through pockets, purses and kimonos. The coins rattled so it took a quick hand and subtle approach, or else she'd lose a finger or the whole hand, but she had a lot of practice growing up since her father lost to the damned Busujima Clan. The thief's weathered katana bounced on her bum as she walked and weaved, every now and then it bumped into someone else or their holstered weapon of choice. She couldn't really rely on it if it came to a fight with the City Imperial Guard, whose steel and ebony weapons would snap her rusty iron mantelpiece decoration; but it was sharp enough for protection and threatening fools on the road leading to Beijio.

She continued to peruse the market stalls as a cover when she needed to cool down her pickpocket spree, for even the most skilled among her would know, eventually one person cries thief- then everyone is a thief. The guards would be on the street faster than a Selachi swims to the scent of blood.

The young woman would soon feel a hand upon her left shoulder, tight in its grip as it pulled her to face the individual who had suddenly grabbed her. A tall man with a kimono and haori in the colors of the Busujima Clan's endorsed Yakuza group stood before her. He was glaring daggers deep into the young woman's eyes, his traditional top knot swaying in the blowing wind. He was joined by two others in similar garb, both being rather showy with their weapons, given one had a mean dark steel axe hung across his shoulder while the other held tight onto the katana on his hip. Given they were with the Busujima Clan who protected the Empire's personal interests, the City Guard of course turned a blind eye.

"Hoy..." the head of the three begins, gripping her shoulder tighter. "You think we don't have eyes or somethin'?" the other two behind him snickered and grinned slyly. "Yeah, you think we dumb we don't see what you're upta?" the one with the axe chimed in. They began to crowd her around the stall. "Better answer my man Tetsu here, or we'll make this a scene purse snatcher." Threatened the other man behind this 'Tetsu'.

"Shion, Ito, shut your mouths." he snapped to them in respectively in turn. He then looked back to the young woman and bowed his head. "You heard them correct street rat. We saw you snatching purses in this district. We understand times are tough, but this is our turf and we safe harbor all those in it. There's gonna be harsh times ahead for us, hell, the Empire. Turn your loot over and we'll let you go, and you can still keep your digits." he explained the situation, thoroughly.

Rin scowled as she was forced to meet gazes with the lot of them. Of course, they're with the Busujima Clan... she recounted their purple colors and gold symbols. She looked from their garbs to their superior weapons, before glancing up in this 'Tetsu' individual's eyes. "Purse snatcher?" she echoed, her voice showing irritation. She reached up and smacked his hand from her shoulder, brushing off where his hand had landed as she continued: "Such garish accusations coming of course from a two bit thug! Pick on someone else, I have no money!" she furiously protested, turning towards the one opening the men had not blocked off, her pace increasing in her step as she 'stormed off'.

Before any of the men could step in, a geisha of sorts approached the gang. "Leave the girl alone," she says, her sweet voice was loud enough to be heard. Her breasts bobbed behind her short, crimson yukata, her curvaceous frame getting between the teenager and Busujima clan's thugs. She wrapped her arm around this 'Tetsu' her bosom squished flat against his ribs, glancing up at him with her large ebony eyes. Her bob styled hair swayed, her crimson lips pursed into a charming, alluring smile. A red ribbon was delicately wrapped around her neck, tied into a bow in the back. He could feel everything as she pressed her body against him. "...even if she is a cut purse, what would you do with her stolen goods? You have no way of returning them to their proper owners realistically... then again, you could re-purpose them..." she continued, rubbing his shoulder and looking up into his eyes with her lidded gaze. "I don't come cheap, handsome~" she cooed.

Rin was confused by the arrival of the street woman, but did not waste the 'opening' she was fortunate enough to provide. Slowly stepping away while the geisha talked, the teen slipped back through the crowd at a quickened pace. Gotta evade them... She thought, taking her stolen bounty with her!

From the corner of her eye, she saw the young woman slip away, and it was then she did her best to delay the men by throwing herself to them! "Oh.... I'm sure we can work things out~" She purred erotically, keeping the oafs back in case they saw her slip away!
