She and Tristan took in the evening air and a walk. The town showed her some kindness in gifting her a small sense of familiarity. She supposed it did resemble the place where she spent so many years of study. She smiled down at Tristan’s jealous “rfff”. He didn’t approve of her mind wandering in any direction that wasn’t toward him.

The gentle thrum of the people in their shops and at their carts was on an even keel until she overheard two men arguing. It didn’t take Akaichou long to figure out what was causing their strife.

She crossed the street toward them, walking with purpose yet retaining her innate grace and learned etiquette. She stood to the side of each man, closer than a typical bystander would and waiting for them to glance her way. She bowed to both men. “Forgive me for interrupting; I hope you will allow me to be of some assistance.” She repeated the same in her native Mekhem.

She spoke softly so that each man had to be quieter to not drown her out. The man with the beard explained that the other had been pointed out to him as the proprietor and he only wanted to know how much his items might cost, but “the owner” didn’t seem interested in the business and turned his back on him. The plumper man’s eyes widened in understanding. He and the owner did share a passing resemblance. Pointing toward the back, there was a shoji half open. The shop keep had been back that way and would likely return soon.

Both men made proper apologies, bowing before the plump man turned away.

Sure enough, the proprietor came from the back. He hadn’t been able to put down his wares when he heard the argument and now he was rushing out to make sure everything was as in order. Upon seeing that the owner and patron would get along just fine, she and Tristan continued on their walk.

Ruqqayah was searching for a few supplies in the hoof before she noticed an argument going on nearby. She almost went over to step in herself, but then someone else did. It was impressive - it wasn't common to see a quiet person who could get louder people to follow their lead, but apparently this person had an exceptional talent. She stepped up to the other woman as she started continuing her walk. "Good afternoon... I hope I'm not interrupting?"

Akaichou stopped, turning to smile at the voice. She saw a young woman standing at her side. Her head scarf and kimono were lovely, as was she. She bowed her head in respect and recognition. "Not at all." The exchange she just had could have easily been overheard, she realized. "Is there a way I can help you?" she asked, violet eyes unconsciously glancing toward the shop.
