"Thank you."

Permalink

"Oh, it's no problem."

Permalink

She presumes that would wait until after dinner.

If there are further local customs about concluding agreements she does not know them.

Permalink

The woman nods a bit unusually deeply, then goes back to her meal, so perhaps not.

Permalink

She waits and considers project elements. 

Permalink

She finishes rather efficiently, then says, "I see her now, I'll be right back - " and goes to obtain at least permission for thread and needle. (The seamstress, unfortunately for them, does not carry her spare supplies everywhere).

Permission is obtained, and she says to Lee, "Well, her craft-space is this way, if you want to fetch the supplies now."

Permalink

(Understandable).

That seems agreeable.

Permalink

She can lead the way, then, and point out what her friend's letting them take - mostly less valuable threads, especially ones that're down to only small amounts on the spool, but the needles are fine.

Permalink

If this is not a problem for her trade-partner it is not one for her either.

Permalink

She doesn't mind. Something in a patchwork of colors might be interesting, anyways?

Permalink

She does not have an artist's color-sense, but that can likely be arranged neatly enough. Would that be all? If so, how should they find each other when the respective projects are complete?

Permalink

Her workshop's probably the best bet for finding her, she's there most of the day. She's not sure how to find Lee, though?

Permalink

She has a room for sleep and the like (she gives location), but does not currently know where she will be spending days.

But being able to find her trade partner should be sufficient.

Permalink

Alright. See her then?

Permalink

Thank you, and her.

Permalink

She's quite welcome.

And the woman departs.

Permalink

Are others still out and about, or do people here generally retire after dinner?

Permalink

There's a noticeable but still small drop in the number of people around, and there's some new people who apparently were either elsewhere or sleeping during the day.

Permalink

Anything systematically different about them or what they're doing?

Permalink

They look more military in general, more like a particularly serious segment of the group of people designated 'shinobi.' Older on average, plainer and dourer on average, generally more wary of people outside their clans, but not unusually so for their age group.

Permalink

Are any of them interested in her?

Permalink

There's a few glances, some vague interest, but mostly as typical for a new person. People don't seem inclined to come talk to her much.

Permalink

This is all really not giving her a very good opinion of the local administration. (She supposes they might have some reason she's not currently aware of for entirely ignoring her all day, but it will have to be a reason that surprises her in existence.)

Are the previously available rooms still 'open', or do they close at some point?

Permalink

She considers, then heads for the rooms with scrolls.
