Safely hidden from sight in the abandoned shack, Stiletto deliberated on what form she would take for her visit to the "club" that MacKenzie frequented. She needed something that was fitting so that she did not draw too much attention from patrons. She also needed something that would not draw too much attention from law enforcement either. That did not leave the mage with very many options.
Disguising herself as a homeless person would draw the wrong sort of attention, as would taking the appearance of a "working girl", but she needed to weigh her options. The former disguise would be great for walking the streets because not too many people paid attention to them, but getting into the club would be next to impossible. The latter disguise would help her get into the club without much issue, but walking about would be a lot more difficult because the police would undoubtedly pick her up and make her fail the mission. This was quite the conundrum that she was facing.
The Hidden Blades mage had an idea. Maybe she could travel the streets disguised as a maid. Such attire would undoubtedly draw attention, but she could allay suspicion with a cover story about dressing up as one for her boyfriend. People did not need to know that she did not really have a boyfriend. With no other options left to her and hearing people nearby, Stiletto turned into a silver-haired maid wearing a blue dress with a white apron over it and red half-rimmed glasses on her face. On her feet were black dress shoes.
The "maid" hid in the shack until the footsteps passed by, then stepped out with no one the wiser. She then began to walk the streets in search of the person she was supposed to eliminate. She merged with the light foot traffic on the street and followed two young couples dressed for a party. They were talking about visiting a club called The Wildcat and were discussing their plans for the evening, which included quite a bit of drinking and some other activities of an adult nature.
"Hey there, aren't you in the wrong neighborhood?" A red-haired girl in a pink tank top and blue jean short shorts with sandals asked Stiletto. The maid gave a polite answer.
"My boyfriend's really into maids, if you know what I mean." Stiletto answered. The young woman gave a knowing smile and nodded.
"Oh, so he's into that
sort of thing, huh?" She asked rhetorically. Stiletto nodded in response.
"So's that MacKenzie guy just down the street. He can't get enough of them." The girl's boyfriend, a muscular guy in a black tank top and blue jeans with brown work boots, chimed in. Stiletto was interested in that and was about to ask when a few young couples turning back warned the partygoers of what was happening up ahead.
"Don't go that way. The police have raided The Wildcat!" The patrons warned the upcoming group. Stiletto was glad that she did not use the "working girl" disguise. As strange as a maid outfit was, she could explain it away a lot easier than she could any other option. Stiletto and the two young couples she was traveling with turned around and went the other way before they got caught in the police dragnet.
