"Anyone up for picnic in the park?" She flashes a wicked smile before turning off into a small alley away from the others.

"Park? As in trees and grass?" I peer ahead. "I'm not sure if I'd trust any plants that could grow in the Nightside."

"Where else would you put a statue." She sighs. "I know a fence that could give us a good price."

at the mention of a park I narrow my eyes "Which park lilly" my tone is low and borders on harsh "and watch that strength of yours one day you could loose a hand or worse to it" Amiee curls nuzzling my neck as i talk turning her on glare on the turnkey and her partner. Mental going through the short list of parks in the nightside only a couple of which are even remotely picnic friendly. why does this seem like a really bad idea.

Shrugging, Lily looks back over her shoulder. "They might like him in Reich Park; would it be wrong to pose him like "The Thinker? It may not be true to life, but I've always liked that statue."

"oh if we put him in drag and have him kneel under his own sword he could be cowering defeat instead of winged victory" I say finally realizing that Lilly is making the micky of Ignacy "as long as it isn't air raid day. i want to avoid being blown up"

i wave my hand dismissively "the only reasons we lost is that we were surrounded by enemies and the fact that hitler wanted to pursue his wonder weapons".

"really, what i remember was also that you tried to take too large bites at once took to many fronts rather then choosing a target and slowly chewing their way through all the surounding territories" I tilt my head to the side "that and allies that jumped the gun"

Lily puts on a bored face. "I gotta fence these." She tosses a locket at Ignacy's plated chest, causing it to chime, though muted by his tunic. "Get that, will ya? I know a guy back this way."

"Skiz has always been fare to me..." She winks, "At least since I locked him in a cage with his avarice. He stuttered for months after that."

I wrinkle my nose as the creature comes forward from the shadows. In an baggy suit that has definitely seen better days, it looks like a bald rat, its skin sagging from bones, its ferrety face pushed forward. Its voice grates like old metal. "And what has Lilly Lass got for Skiz then? Lots of pretties?"
I can't believe anyone would stoop to this, to bargaining in back allies. Only the barest survival could possibly...
The thought quells the disgust in my gut. The barest survival. She does this because to her, it is the only way to survive.

"Skiz, sweetheart," Lily smiles as she caresses the little man's cheek. He visibly flinches as he steps back from her. Nodding her approval, she drops the cheapest of the necklaces on the counter, a simple brass locket on the counter. "Start with this one and see what you think, dear."

The little rodent of a man studies the locket with a disturbing glee. "Ooh, pretty, yes, pretty indeed. Skiz will give...twenty pounds, Skiz will."

"He will, will he?" Lily studies the locket a moment. "And I'm sure you'll treble that price when you sell it to some beauty in off the street and down on her luck... Now you wouldn't do that, would you, darling?"

The man's watery eyes narrowed. "Skiz cuts his own throat if he gives more than...forty."

"You're too gentle with me," Lily sighs as she lays the next, a pearl bracelet on the counter, "It'll be your undoing, love."

" I don't think that is how this little gerbil sees it Lily" I pipe up my eyes scanning the shadows, they are wrong for the light sources, what is the rat planning

Lily shakes her head. "You should trust Skiz like I do; he really is a sweetheart once you get to know him. Though it takes a while."

"Mouse." I mutter. "And the images were cuter than this."
The rat flips me a rude gesture before turning back to Lily. "More? More pretties??"

"Plenty, Skiz honey," she smiles sweetly pushing the pearl bracelet across counter. "What you think of this?"

I frown at the expression on their faces; one avaricious, one predetory.
"I think I'll be waiting outside till you're done."
The air feels cleaner in the alley, which is saying something for what the atmosphere in the shop was like. I take a deep breath. On my shoulder, Ailin chirps and twitters. I smile, nuzzling my head against hers...until Ailin's chirping becomes a shrill scream.
There are hulking shadows coming down the alley. Men. Huge men. I turn on my heel, dashing back inside. "On your guard, we've got compan-"
then all hell breaks loose as the men come barreling through the door.Growling in some guttural language, the first two lunge at Liam and Ignacy.
