Hinami didn't notice the sneaky little thief that got behind her sister, probably because she was focused on the gaijin woman's strange dog.

Even their dogs are stange... She thought.

Akaichou was consumed with watching the sisters' faces, looking for distrust that she didn't notice the boy was getting a bit too close for comfort.

24 - Fail

The boy disappeared somewhere in the crowd.

[Hikari loses the sweets and jade she has on her.]

The boy'd bumped into her, it was busy after all and so not too much of an unexpected issue. Only too late did she realize she was missing something... her Jade pendant. She patted herself down and then looked around her, a frown developing on her face.

"That... he took my jade."

Mr. Cuddles watched the scene. It looked like his time of rest on the warm roof was over. He spotted the boy and began the chase.

'' What!? '' Hinami turned towards her sister. Of course she was robbed, she should had expected that these savages acted like this, thievery surely is an intrinsic part of their culture. She then turned to the gaijin woman, she covered her lips with her fan. Hinami was really angry and now she was suspecting that this woman actually lured them into a trap.

'' Maybe we should return where it is safe and people act civilized, Hikari...'' She said without taking her eyes from Akaichou.

"No," she said, a bit too sharply, with a raised hand. "I think... I saw..."

"This way!" She started to give chase, possibly getting ahead of the other two women... but then stopped. There were too many people, and she'd lost the proverbial scent.

"Damnit," she stomped a foot on the ground, looking around, "that's a third of my stock of jade!"

[reworked things]

Akaichou understood Hinami's anger. It did look terribly suspicious. She felt embarrassed that people would take advantage of those who'd already lost so much.

She ran after Hikari, Tristan at her heels.

Down the street she saw a boy who was seemingly admiring a new treasure. Akaichou rushed to a guard in one of the near stalls, obviously there to protect the proprietor from being robbed. She hurried and pointed him out. "That boy just stole a necklace from my friend! Can you help?"

There was a silent exchange between the men before the guard rose and began to chase down the boy before he knew he was being pursued, once by feline, once by man.

[Also changed]

Hinami shrugs but follows her sister's commands. She tries to catch up Hikari and her right hand was firmly touching her wakizashi. She expected more trouble and the fact that she didn't understood a word of what Akaichou was talking with some other gaijin made her even more cautious and suspicious about the gaijin intentions.

"They have no understanding how precious it truly is," she said hurriedly.

She needed to calm down; and Hikari had just the thing. Reaching into her pocket for the remainder of her sweets she...

...discovered they too had been taken!

"Hida's balls," she said; adopting a crude remark she'd adopted from a colleague... or possibly a superior given the identity of the Jade champion. "Not my snacks too."

Akaichou returned to the sisters. "That guard is after that boy who is looking at something he stole." Akaichou pointed down the street toward the boy in question. The Ide did not anger easily, but to steal from anyone, never mind her cultural ancestor... "As though you haven't lost enough."

She sighed. "I have replacements for both, but still. The jade is rare. I have yet to see any on this island. A Jade magistrate without jade is quite unacceptable."

"There is no jade here. I have only seen it in a few homes of other Ki-Rin. Each piece, no matter how small, is given a place of honor." She ran her hands through her hair. "And you should not have to use a replacement. You have been through enough."

Hinami was not amused. '' So, Ide-san. What is the punishment for thieves around here?'' She was still angry. '' Stealing from a Jade magistrate, not accounting that my sister is the daughter of Seppun-dono, is a blasphemous crime. This is outrageous. If this was Rokugan I would expect his immediate execution...'' Harsh words.

''Thievery is not tolerated in Rokugan.'' She closed her fan, with a loud sound.

A place of honor eh?

"Jade is a substance of particular... uniqueness. Its primary use ensures that it could be considered a strategic resource."

And then Hinami pushed and prodded.

"The return of the jade is what matters."

Hinami was using words that she did not quite understand. Despite that being the case, it did not take a trained translator to tell that she was spitting mad. These shores had been most unkind to her and her family.

"I have never had anything stolen. And I have not been to this island before, and haven't been here much longer than a week or so. If it is like the rest of the continent, punishment will likely be your choice. Many are killed, some lose a hand, others are let go if they are young by leave of the wronged. The guard will know more when he catches him."

'' Peasants should know their place, dear sister. If you let this pass, it will create confusion and encourage others to do the same.'' She replied to Hikari. Then she listened to the gaijin woman.

'' Well, if he is caught, I expect that he is hanged for his crimes. In any case, Ide-san, i believe you were taking us somewhere to discuss how is that you claim to be a descendant of Shinjo-no-kami...'' She said.

Being a courtier, Akaichou knew many that felt the way Hinami did about the lower classes. Still, as an Ide she'd been taught to treat everyone with respect. A thief certainly shouldn't be treated as though he were a productive member of society, but as a daughter of Shinjo she had inherent compassion. The idea that a boy might lose his life because of 10 seconds of misbehavior... It crawled under her skin. And now Hinami was questioning her parentage outright. She pulled herself together and let the diplomat within take over.

"Yes, to where I call home at the moment. Together, perhaps we can find truths about one another, Seppun-san."

'' -sama, Ide-san. '' She corrected the gaijin woman. Using -san once was forgivable, twice no. '' We are not members of the buke. We are kuge, members of the Imperial families and daughters of the Seppun daimyo. Direct descendants of Lady Seppun. Remember that.'' She said with a proud dry tone. The Seppun twins were part of the nobility of Rokugan, and Hinami -always- acted like one.

Akaichou bowed in reverence. "Please forgive my mistake, Seppun-sama. I appreciate your correction. It will not happen again."

She attempted to see the guard or the boy and could find neither. "If we cannot get your things back, Seppun-sama, I would suggest we should go to the Mamluk guards. If anyone is seen selling your jade, they will be arrested and dealt with, and the jade returned to you if possible. Jade is rare so it will be easier to see."
