Zi'da 4th 717, Noon
Location: Foster's Landing
It had honestly been a little too long since Toan had spent his time here within Foster's Landing, as he'd noticed there had been credible changes to the place itself. For one there were patrols throughout the city that resembled Black Guards, which he definitely tried to avoid since his little stunt at the Citadel last season. That and... there were a lot more mercenaries gathering in another part of the town. Something big was going down apparently, a lousy expedition to unearth fallen ruins somewhere or so he heard. Street ears didn't really know much either, other than quite a number of men were being recruited for the trip. Treasure seemed to be their angle apparently, Toan on the other hand already had just the right valuables he needed today. "You." He grabbed the shoulder of an urchin that passed by, her curled hair and dirty cheeks easily gave away her current lifestyle.
"What's gone on lately? Why the increase in guard patrol?" As he asked this he brought up a gold nel between a finger and thumb, and held it just shy of her reach until she would answer him.
"Guards are helpin' out a new gang, dunno who it is though as I've never really seen him." She eagerly answered with her hand held for the coin.
"No name to go by? Surely you've caught a glimpse of him at least once."
"Well..." She seemed to withdraw the hand and contemplate for a couple of Trills. "I know he has a flower on his helmet often."
"Flower? He wouldn't happened to be a mustached twat now would he?" Toan inquired with a raised eyebrow.
"Hm..." Toan rubbed his chin for a moment as the girl grappled his wrist almost weakly. "Fair enough," he gave in and allowed her to take the gold piece, "but there's more where that came from girl." At the sound of that her eyes shot from the single gold nel she held, up to him with a glint that suggested opportunity on her behalf. "How would you like to find him for me? Give him a message and I'll pay you for the effort."
"How much?" She inquired with a childish curtsy of her form.
"Three gold nel this time." He offered with a smirk cast down to her, a chuckle to follow as her eyes went up to the sky in thought.
"Okay, what's the message?"
"Tell him these exact words; the mustached twat can find a gift waiting for him at the Goldmine. Can you remember that?" He checked as he fished out the other three gold pieces.
"The mustached t-wat can find a gift waiting for him... at the Goldmine!"
"Good girl, now on with you." He encouraged as he held the pieces out for her to take, with a fast hand the little girl headed off to find him with a giddy step in her run. It was only a matter of time now before Toan would finally be rid of these jewels in his pocket, as he was ready to sell them off for a profit once the proper one had been identified. When he noticed a guard had turned onto his street, Toan quickly turned away and walked onward to dunk around a corner. Quite eagerly he moved along to an alley he could use for a shortcut, and kept onward in the direction of the place for their little rendezvous.
