Having followed what little she could pick up Kaiya eventually found her way here. Tucking away her flute as she no longer required it to spark the conversation she moved into the square proper, finding a seat with Sakia somewhere near the center. Somewhere she could observe the people and take a moment to relax. This type of work wasn't as easy as one might think from speaking of it alone, but she at least had an idea of whom she was looking for.

Luckily, as she had heard, they weren't going anywhere. So a few moments to relax wouldn't be missed.

A commotion drew her attention. A lamp merchant was shouting at a young man holding an instrument that looked a bit like a shamisen. The Mekhem was fast but it looked like the boy had accidentally kicked a precious lamp trying to get to the square and was now being scolded into paying for it in now allegedly tarnished condition. The musician was trying to say something but the merchant was just over-shouting him.

Rising from her seat at the sign of the commotion, Kaiya made her way over without much haste to offer some effort in quieting the disturbance. Placing herself between the young man and the angry shop merchant Kaiya used a tried and true tactic of stealing the attention and simply remaining quiet. Most people, as she had learned, were quick to expect someone to try and soothe the situation with reason or to quiet it by shouting as well and taking dominance. Kaiya had learned, long ago, that the thing which stopped most people long enough for them to think was the thing that they didn't expect to happen. Silence was usually just the thing.

Sakia stood by, ready.

Ringo wanders through Little Aqahba taking in the scenery. Spotting a familiar Imperial he approaches her a offers her a polite bow but otherwise doesn't say anything as it seems that she is in the middle of something... quite literally.

The recriminations... moved to Kaiya, with the boy now forgotten. It was her who was now blamed for kicking the precious lamp. Being a condescendingly silent foreigner, she was easier to attract bad emotions. Some people joined the lamp trader, removed one of their shoes and started hitting the ground with it in disapproval of uncouth behaviour. The man was requesting 5 silver in compensation.

Of course, 5 Silver seemed far too high a price for such a thing but if money was what silenced these degenerates then she would freely afford it. For what the Lamp was actually worth however, and nothing more.

Breaking the silence... at least from Kaiya. "Do you wish for some assistance?"

Lamp looked like 2 bu affair at most, by Rokugani standards of value.

Toward Ringo Kaiya waved her hand, decided upon handling the situation as it was. Before instructing Sakia to hand over a single Bu for his troubles and nothing more.

Ringo nods and watches the exchange between Kaiya and the lamp merchant.

The merchant stayed agape for a moment, but then waved his hands in dismissive gesture and began calling and shouting in a more casual manner, not at Kaiya, but to advertise. She was left with a perfectly serviceable lamp, and...

"Shukran, Sayyeda. You are the smile of the Goddess. I am sorry my clumsiness brought trouble."

Ringo eases a bit as it seems like the situation has resolved itself. He stays quiet for a moment but wonders if he should step in to offer some assistance as a translator.

/ No worries. /

Kaiya looked to the man with a light smile to acknowledge the positive intention of the dismissive wave of her hand. As it was certainly nothing of a bother to her. Sakia, for once, was left completely out of the loop and forced to live this rather new and crazy experience of feeling rather useless to Kaiya. Whether Kaiya understood the man, or simply read it in his expression, was anyone's guess for now.

For some reason, the boy's gaze lingered on Sakia.

"Have you come here for the music?" He inquired, trying to speak more clearly.

Kaiya almost thought the man intended to ask Sakia directly rather than her, maybe it was so, but she answered with a shake of her head before glancing to Sakia.

However, before Kaiya's attention turned Sakia was already speaking, "Do you understand our language..." she faltered on that, not quite sure the most proper method of addressing a nameless outsider. Not that she'd be likely to understand him had he already introduced himself. Maybe he already had and she was just standing here not only making a fool out of herself but quite clearly failing in her actual duty.

Seeing that this is going nowhere fast Ringo decides to step in to help. He offers a polite bow to both parties.

"Excuse me Seppun-sama, Sakia-san but please allow me to assist with the translation." He looks over to Kaiya and Sakia first.
