Uhmm... I really don't have a goal with this. I just wrote it out and thought to try something. The woman is of Arabian and Spaniard blood, during sometime in the mid 700 AD era. It can be a story or not; *Pokes it with a stick* we shall see? If anyone has interest, just let me know through PM or here or messenger or whatever! I sort of thought it would take place along England where the country was at war, or civil war or something of the sort. Dunno! ^__^))

It was well after dark; the hour where respectable people were at home, finishing meals and winding down for bed so they could be ready to attend to their duties the next day. The guards were out patrolling the streets, the thieves were out dancing from rooftop to rooftop, and the other low-lives were trickling into the Inn, if they weren
"Are you sure you know what you're doing?"
"Not one bit. But it's okay, I'm like every landlord in the nation. I've Googled directions."
"Shit."

Looks like this could be fun!  :D

A slight man sat at the bar, slumped over his drink. A hood covered his eyes, but small tresses over blonde hair found there way below the hem of it. Occasionally, he would glance down to his left at the other patrons, making sure that none of his fellow ne'er-do-wells were plotting and scheming. Not that he minded plotting and scheming, but he had he own best interest in mind. Small fingers gripped the glass on either side, tensing around it at occasion. He had only just arrived a few minutes ago and took his normal spot at the far side of the bar, ordering some ale from the old barkeep, taking his drink with the usual barage of swear words. The man, named Raef, wouldn't chastize him, for he spoke no better, and remained silent. Besides, honey catches more flies than does vinegar. He needed to make sure he stayed on good terms with as many people as possible, just in case of complications in the future. Even though he was not well educated, being unlearned in almost all school subjects including reading and writing, he had a good deal of common sense. It was essential for survival in this part of town.

Raef took a drink from his mug, pushing back his hood as he did so. As he set the mug back down onto the bar counter, a quick shake of his head sent his hair flying. Deep brown eyes scanned the small crowd once more, taking more time to study the faces and memorize anything of use. He rubbed his chin, noticing the stubble had grown a little more than he liked. He would have to get a blade soon.

He heard the noises upstairs, but paid no heed to them. They were common place in a low-browed establishment like this. What caught his attention was the thundering steps running down the stairs, the shouts for help that proceeded them. He looked up towards the source of the noise and dropped his left hand to his right hip, his hand twitching nervously over the hilt of the short sword sheathed there. His hand didn't return when he saw the woman. He waited for the real threat, whom he knew would be coming shortly after her. When he saw the man chasing after her, he quickly turned away from him, seeing as the other man was much larger than himself, and looked to the harlot that was now hiding behind a man who seemed to have become a regular around here. The new person didn't talk much, and that was fine with Raef.

He wasn't sure he wanted to be here at the front anymore, it looked like a fight was going to break out, and he would be smack dab in the middle of it. Raef watched the fight with mild interest, careful to stay close to the bar, when he recognized the man. It was one of his go-betweens... One of his fence's employees. He watched, now with kindled interest, the brawl progress. But it wasn't quite was he was expecting. The challenger moved with a grace and precision that he had never seen before. His eyes widened when the cowl fell down and reveiled a woman underneath it. A woman who could fight? It was almost unheard of in his city, save for the few very talented female warriors.

On any normal night, with anyone else, he would've let it go. He would've let the man, or now as he realized, woman, kill him. But he needed this man to pay the rent. As a thief-for-hire, he never had any direct contact with his fences, he always went through go-betweens, so as to minimize the chances of getting pick off by the city watch. He had to do something, or he could be short a job in the future. He didn't stand up or approach her, just stayed put and looked down into his glass before he looked at her with a sidelong glance. He needed to conceil as much of himself as possible, just in case she was interested in the reward for his capture.

   "Little missy..." He started quietly. "I segg'st ye let 'im go. Ye never know, 'e might 'ave... friends. Big friends..." His dark eyes flashed with an emotion somewhere between anxiety and anger. He really didn't want to fight, but he knew that any argument could come to blows with his kind of people running the show.
