Kingsway Market ~Vienda

"We might not be toffin, but we sure as hell would look a lot less suspicious if we looked like some”
she hissed lowly at the other girl, still smiling like nothing were amiss.
As they reached the exit, the girl stopped and finally let go of her, of what Nymeria assumed to be, already bruising arm. As the girl stared her up and down, Nymeria did the same. Tiny built, but the way she moved didn’t give Nymeria the impression that she was weak. She couldn’t quite put her finger on it, but she had the feeling that if she let the girl slip through her grasp, she would be missing an opportunity. For what? She didn’t know. But something.
”What’s your name?”
Nymeria was slightly taken aback by the question, and she stood in silence with a slights squint of her eyes and a purse of her lips. ”I’m not dumb. I have absolutely-“
she was interrupted by the girl, asking about her family in a high pitched voice. She answered with a laugh and a ”They’re good thank you, how about yours?”
, not expecting an answer as the girls body slowly loosened up.
”I have absolutely no idea who you are, so in what world would I give you my name before you gave me yours?”
. It wasn’t meant as an insult, though depending on the density of this girl’s skin it might be taken like that. But from the looks of it, this girl wasn’t the kind to go home and cry in her pillow.
She looked at her, chin slightly raised, and cold calculating eyes. What did this girl want with her? Why had she grabbed her
of all people, on a market filled with so many others. And she had taken a great risk grabbing a random stranger. Had she grabbed the wrong one, she might not have been standing up, but rather lying on the ground under the Seventen’s feet on the cobblestones.
”What do you want from me?”
she asked, curiosity sparkling in her eyes along with wariness. It didn’t strike her as a scheme to rob her, which would also have been an extremely dumb idea. Not because she was dangerous. But because they would get absolutely nothing out of it. Aside from that she would probably also have brought her further away.
She looked at her. The same blue eyes almost seeming grey, like her own. Light skin, and dark hair, a small built. She looked like someone who could get in anywhere she wanted. If she had passed Nymeria, she wouldn’t even have noticed her. Not because she wasn’t beautiful, but she just seemed like the shadows would befriend her. Like she could disappear from one’s sight if she wished to do so. So Nymeria kept a steady eye on her, watching her every move for a hint of her intentions. And to make sure she wouldn’t glide into the shadows and disappear from Nymeria before she gave her the answers.
