Slashing High Prices!

Post  FlameDarkfire on Sat May 05, 2012 5:16 pm

The market was bustling with the sounds of haggling and and livestock, the scents of fresh spices and street food being cooked, and people bustling about. One girl in particular moved through the crowd fluidly, almost like she was trained to avoid getting stuck. To a casual observer, she was just an ordinary teenage girl, dressed in a cotton kimono with her hair down, shopping for possibly her family judging by the basket.

["Fuck, I can't read his handwriting,"] Mei muttered to herself in her native tongue. The shopping trip had been mostly successful, her haggling skills were getting good, and she'd have some mon left over to enjoy herself. Just needed to buy a sack of flour and she'd be done...

"You are looking quite the lady today, Mei," Yuzuru said, moving to stand next to her and take a look at the wares of a particular stall. "With a disguise that good, no one will be able to tell that you pick blood out from under your finger nails on a daily basis with a knife."

Mei started at the voice, the subtle shnk of a hidden blade noticeable to anyone with the ears to pick it up, but as she turned she sighed seeing it was just Yuzuru.

"Don't startle me like that Yuzuru," she whispered "You almost got six inches in your gut." The hidden blade retracted back into its housing, having never become visible thanks to the large sleeve on her kimono. The weapon had been a gift from the old man, Thiago, as the Mongols did not make use of them in their methods. Still, like he had told her, in a large, populated city like Nagasaki, sometimes having visible weapons can attract more trouble than they will solve.

"Believe me, given the choice I'd rather dress in the hide clothing of my people. They at least offer a bit more protection. But thank you for the compliment. What are you doing today?" she asked, putting down the mon for the flour with the merchant. As she slipped it in her basket she turned fully to her fellow assassin, smiling gently.

"It would seem that Thiago has spoken to my lord about a prolonged service here, so now I am confined to Nagasaki. I would understand if our master had a mission for me, however I have received no word of any such action. I am merely just trying to fill my time now." Holding out a hand, he asked, "May I assist you in your errand?"

Mei nodded, listening to her friend and fellow initiate. "I know. It seems like we're just padding our numbers, considering the recent setback." She smiled at his offer, handing him half of her purchases. "Thank you, that's very kind. The old man actually said the Mongols could go back to the mainland if they wanted. I intended to stay, and most of them are staying with me. I don't know if it is out of respect for me, or for Abagha. But come, walk with me. It is a nice day and I have enough money for ramen, if you'd like to join me?"

"We've lost many, but they fought for an honorable cause. The Lord will honor their sacrifice." Taking the items, he said, "Your kin are quite loyal. While they may stay out of respect for your father, I am sure that they stay with you because they know you to be strong. They need you in order to stay together." As he followed her, he then added, "I would love some ramen."

Mei smiled a bit more and looked down briefly. "I suppose so. Abagha did train me to be his right hand in a way, having me distribute orders, take care of our clansmen, stuff like that. Great, I know this nice ramen place not too far from here," she replied, gesturing for him to follow her.

A couple of streets over the crowds had thinned out, though they were not deserted. The ramen shop she mentioned was on a street corner, with bright banners up on the gable. There were a few patrons, though plenty of seats for the two assassins. Mei sat down at one seat and ordered a bowl of ramen with a smile.

Yuzuru could not help but notice how different Mei was. Whether it was the kimono or the chore she had been given, she was no where near as brutal as she was when she was on assignment. She was almost regal in her manners. Taking a seat next to his companion, he ordered himself a ramen and set their groceries down next to him.

"So, has Thiago or the Mentor told you anything about upcoming assignments? They've been rather quiet around me."

Mei still had a lot of the demure, quiet Chinese image of girls and women in her, considering that was instilled in her for most of her life. Sure she was brutally lethal in combat, but here most probably couldn't tell her from a cultured japanese upper class girl. She nodded as the man brought their ramen, paying him the mon for the meal.

"No, the old man hasn't talked to me about any assignments recently. Probably keeping me off the roster so I can grieve. But I do want to get back in the action soon," she replied before blowing on her hot soup. She took a sip, making an "mmm" sound before turning back to Yuzuru. "Why, he give you an assignment?"

Yuzuru pulled a bundle from out of his shirt and set it on the counter. "Lord Date has gifted me with metal for a new sword. Thiago has arranged for me to travel to Echigo in order to find the legendary swordsmith Muramasa. If you are not opposed, I would ask for you to accompany me on this journey."

Mei's eyes lit up when he posed the question. A chance to get back in her element, and see the country? Hells yeah. She had to play it cool, so she smiled softly.

"Why yes, I would like to join you on this journey. Though we might want a lead on where he might be before we just head off on a wild pheasant chase."

"The plans have already been made. Muramasa is supposed to be in Ise, so we will take a boat to Echigo and work our way down to Ise. It will be dangerous. Nobunaga makes his home near there. But together, we should be able to find Muramasa without too much trouble."

Mei nodded. It was dangerously near enemy territory, but the Mongols had operated on the edges of an in Templar territory before. They were masters of hunting, tracking, and not being followed.

"Excellent, looks like the plan is in order. When do we set out?"
