    Two Thieves, Liars, and Cheats (Private Social/Eli)

    DON'T TRUST ANYONE
    Ah, Talonia, Talonia. Yuzuki sighed, leaning her head back against arms propped up behind her head as she strolled through the streets. As the main place of her childhood, she had bitter, scary, happy, sad, angry memories about the city. The streets here, she knew better than the back of her hand(though this wasn't really a feat as your hand is actually quite hard to know well due to all those squiggly little lines). Following her nose, enhanced with her supernatural senses soon began to seek out food. Being a mage, it should be pretty easy for the semi-fey to earn money and buy food. However, the semi-fey never quite felt so alive when tossing hard-earned cash on a table as she did when sneaking through the shadows and slipped a slender finger into a purse.

    Yup. These days, Yuzuki mostly thieved for the thrill of it. Of course, there had been days when she depended on this little art to survive. Days where she really would go hungry if she didn't snatch the occasional apple or cut the occasional purse. It wasn't necessary now, more a habit than anything. Following her nose, the semi-fey was soon brought to a small vendor's stand, emanating the delicious odor of steamed meat buns. Inevitably being attracted to that mouthwatering scent, Yuzuki moved closer, gaze on the plate of freshly steamed buns on the table. She slowly strolled on by, pretending as if nothing was happen. However, if anyone was looking at the right corner, the bun would be every so slightly slipped into a sleeve by the trickster figure.

    After clearing the area, Yuzuki pulled the bun out, and dug into it. She relished the delicious taste, chewing happily on the bun. Walking down. The street, she would proceed to see who to get next. Perhaps that housewife over there? Perhaps that man wearing a coat with golden buttons?

    Eli hadn't intended to stay in Talonia for much longer after gaining the parasite. Especially now that he had to hunt down a bunch of clones. Unfortunately, he was still recovering, both mentally and physically from the bonding. Besides, he could always build up some more cash before leaving. And Talonia was a great city for that. To call it lawless would be too much, but it was definitely a thieves paradise. The streets where thriving, easy to slip in and out unnoticed. So he had to make the most of the opportunity. He strolled the streets now, looking for a meal. There was no lack of food here, but for a picky eater it was difficult. There was a good smell floating down the street though, so he decided to follow the lead. A small stand, run by a single street vendor, with some piping fresh buns just sitting out. Clearly he wasn't the only one attracted to the delectable smell however, as several people were talking to the man and taking his attention. Perfect, a meal on the house.

    Again though, it seemed like Eli wasn't the only one attracted to those buns. He watched a young girl, striding by the buns and obscuring them for a moment. To anyone else, it wouldn't even have caught their attention, but to someone starring those buns down and waiting for a chance to grab one, it meant the world. Because, the bun hanging closest to the edge was gone, and the girl was now happily devouring one. This had no affect on Eli in the slightest, not like he cared who stole buns from a street vendor. His ego wouldn't have it however. That bun was going to be his, and now he had to teach her a lesson. So he stopped by the stand, watching as the man helped serve other customers. Eli reached into his pocket, grabbing a few jewels and dropping them on the counter as he grabbed an apple sitting on the opposite end of the stand.

    With a smile and good day to the merchant, Eli walked away from the unsuspecting man. It was a nice purchase, a refreshing apple to go along with two meat buns. He caught up to the woman, walking beside her and placing the apple in his coat pocket. Reaching into his pant pockets, he pulled out two meat buns, one having been slid into each side as he purchased the apple. Catching the vendors attention with the jewels was easy, and stretching over the table to reach the apple easily obscured the plate as he made his score. A sly grin appeared on his face. He was sure the girl would understand what he had done, thieves had a way about them others could understand. Feeling victorious he dove into the bun, curious now how she'd react.

    DON'T TRUST ANYONE
    At first, he hadn't really seemed of much importance at all, really. Just some other guy on the street stealing stuff. Yuzuki's supernaturally enhanced senses easily picked up on all the little crimes occurring here and there, and the man who had snatched a steamed bun after her hadn't been missed. It was a fairly common strategy for thieving, blocking the view of something with a distraction. Nothing interesting enough for the semi-fey to remember. It was forgotten within seconds like everything that disinterested her was. She finished the bun quickly, licking the last morsels off of her fingers. It was relaxing, in a way, being in this place where she didn't have to be as on alert as other places. Having spent at the very least ten years in the city, every escape route was known to her. She was the one with the advantage here.

    Just as she was looking for something else to ease her boredom, she suddenly smelled the scent of buns drift by her, the displacement of air beside her causing her skin to tingle. Instinctively, Yuzuki had whirled around, a hand on the silver chains dangling from her belt. Now who was this again? Somehow he seemed familiar. Ohhh, right, that guy stealing the steam buns! Yuzuki blinked, then narrowed her eyes at the slightly competitive glint in his. How simply annoying. Silver eyes quickly analyzed the figure, taking in his robotic arm, his style of clothing, height, width, physique, his scent, how he walked, what shoes... Having had a good thirty-some years of experience with people of all sorts, she was excellent at analyzing a character. This man... well it was obvious enough he didn't like losing. His physique showed an at least fairly good fighter, if not excellent. His hairstyle seemed foreign, perhaps Pergrande? But, then again, there were people from everywhere in Talonia.

    Well, if he was provoking her... Yuzuki's natural reaction would have been to immediately take the bait, leading them into a competition of thievery that would likely get one of them in trouble. However, as she had begun to try and calm down, avoid reacting predictably so much, she actually began to think it through(LE GASP! YUZU IS THINKING!). Well, she certainly knew one thing for certain... She hated this guy's guts already. Point One: He was smiling. Smiling was stupid. Point Two: He was trying to provoke her. That was stupid and it annoyed her. Point Three: He was human. Humans were all stupid scum that deserved to be extinct with the whole of the freakin' fey population! Well... it was a challenge... She couldn't simply let a perfectly good challenge sit there, could she? Pretending to turn down a street, she would casually spin around on one foot as if to reverse directions, then, with a boost from hidden wings, she leapt up, slapping his face as hard as she could. Now that felt good. Yuzuki smiled, an urge quenched. "A-ah~ So sorry, O-ji-saaaan~ Mosquito on your face~!" She spoke in a sweet, girly voice. She could act too, after all. She opened her hand, revealing a squashed mosquito she had abruptly snatched out of the sky a mere few milliseconds before her hand met his face.
