Cai Bin could not help but smirk towards the man as he bowed his head a little lower. "Then we await you at the Magistrate's Office tomorrow. I cannot give you assurances of sponsorship as the situation stands, but you may well assert your name and reasoning before the council and adjoined fellows. I do not make decisions without hearing from all sides, I do ask you that you do not come with any largely armed retinue, your motivations will assuredly be misconstrued to proceed in such a manner." Cai Bin rose from his bow, a plain expression on his face. "Was there anything else you wished to ask of me Master Ding?"

Jiang Yan shook his head. He didn't really betray any emotion in his appearance, but he was clearly not very impressed with what he had heard.

Jiang Yan: "... I think I have heard enough from you today. I do not think you are a worthy successor to *her*... Yet. We shall see. I will speak to you again in the future, I think."

And with a swish of his grey cloak, Jiang Yan left the makeshift headquarters of Ding Ma.

Even in times of chaos, there could be order. A routine one can follow that just made life more bearable, vanished the chaos for the time. For Li Jun, it was get up, go to barracks for reports and to gather some guards, get out and patrol the beleaguered city. People see some patrols, it helped give a temporary feel of normalcy and the illusion that the law still applied, it kept the guards busy and it kept her from having to worry about the future. The rebel army, who will lead them, if she would be sacked...

What didn't help was the children. She wasn't overly fond of children but when they were spreading panic, there wasn't much she could do. Arresting children for stirring up trouble tended not to look good so she had to let the bleeding little rhymers wander about, spreading disharmony all over the place. Then have to deal with the mess from nervous people who then did stupid things that caused trouble. Sometimes she just wanted to give them a kick....

For now, she stayed by the not so very busy market, keeping an eye out for trouble, opportunities to buy something cheap or anyone who might want a hand.

There was no doubting the nervousness in the air, everybody knew it, but life in Wan continued as it always had. There were clear differences though, no matter how much Wai Be convinced himself otherwise. The unrest across the lands was certainly bad for business - less travelling merchants and tradesmen arrived through the gates, more caravans disappeared without a trace and more peddlers sought to make fortune off other's misfortune, at a cost to the common man. As long as the sands of time kept flowing, Be thought, then everything will work out and the city may yet thrive again. Even if he had to help it, one grain at a time.

Today's morning business had been wrapped up nicely and so Wai Be decided to inspect the markets for himself. It was a good idea to get a first-hand account of the goings-on of the commerical sector, for it fluctuated so frequently that news can be outdated within days or even hours. Besides, it was good to see the effects of policies and grants that Be had been involved with (and he was also particularly adept at finding a good bargain in amongst the wares).


"DON'T YOU LIE TO ME!"

A bellowing voice drew Be's attention and he quickly but smoothly moved through the crowd to find its source.

"IT WAS FOR THREE, YOU ******!"

There was a large man. A very large man. He had tattered clothes, making his impressive muscles very clear to all around. He was also very dirty, even for a commoner, and had unkempt facial hair, including a distinctive shabby mono-brow. Beside him were two smaller men, both with various scars or bruises, and all three had closed in on one of the regular traders in the market. The trader was rapidly shaking his head back and forth. He had his hands held up to his chest and a nervous smile contorted his sputtering lips.

"no no no no y-y-you only gave me g-g-gold for two see? t-t-two!" His hand had pulled out some gold from beneath his cart of goods. The large man's anger rose as his breathing became heavy, almost squealling through his nose. "I GAVE YOU ENOUGH FOR THREE! THERE IS THREE OF US! YOU WILL GIVE US THREE!"

"This could get out of hand fast," thought Be. He had seen similar instances before. Once upon a time, they were rare, but it was plain to see that they lead to violence so much more often these days. Taking a deep breath, he moved to intervene.

"Gentlemen, gentlemen, what seems to be the problem h.." He surprised himself with the authority in his voice, but it had obviously not been enough (or perhaps even too much) as the large man sharply turned toward him. "SHUT IT! DIS AIN'T GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU JUST ME AND MR THIEF GUY HERE!" And with that, his two companions stepped in front of Wai Be and raised their hands to forcefully keep him back. A tinge of panic arose in the minister...

"No but it is a matter for the city guard. Step away from the stall and the... other one."

Li Jun spoke with the voice of expirence, of an authority that expected to be obeyed by one and all. While her hand was not near her sword, she was quite happy to ensure it was on show as was the fact she was wearing armour that indicated she was a city guard. She might lack the muscles of the big man but she knew how to handle herself and she was better equipped while of course, take on one guard=take on many.

The shouts had been loud enough to wake the dead so Li Jun headed and moved towards the ruckus, determined to try to settle any row before things got out of hand. In olden days, things would be less likely to go further then this but everyone was on edge, tensions could spill over all too easily. She hoped the stupidity of attacking a guard in broad daylight and her arms would be enough to stop anyone being stupid....

"YEAH WELL WHERE ARE THEY THESE DAYS!?" The large man guffawed and reached out to the trader, who was receding more and more into the wall behind him. He then glanced around at the latest interrupter and his laughter ceased mid-flow. His arm fixed in the air, inches from the trader's face, as his cruel smile slowly disappeared to be replaced by a petulant frown. Meanwhile, the two companions had quickly backed away from Wai Be and were nervously eyeing an exit strategy. The guard captain's arrival, however, had created a clearing in the crowd, making the troublemakers more conspicuous than before.

The minister regathered his composure and cleared his throat, he attempted to move confidently toward Li Jun but was all-to-aware of the three men glaring at him as he did. He stopped, positioning himself somewhat between the guards and the large man, and bowed slightly.
"Why, if it isn't Captain Li an..."

"I AIN'T DONE NOTHING WRONG!" The anger couldn't be contained any longer and the large man rotated his aggressive stance in the direction of their new company. The veins his forehead bulged even more than his muscles and his mono-brow frowned deeper than before. His right arm repeatedly pointed at the merchant as he continued, never once considering to lower his tone. "THIS CROOK HERE TOOK MONEY FOR THREE JUGS OF WINE! HE GAVE ME TWO! I SHOULD CRUSH HIS HEAD!"

Li Jun was pleased to see the two companions backing away but gave them a glance, just to make sure they knew she was aware they were there. She gave a polite nod to the fellow intervenor but otherwise concentrated completely on the shouty large man, spreading her hands in as peaceful a way as she could, pouring honey into her tone.

"Of course you haven't done anything wrong but if you attack him, that changes. Why don't you and the trader both talk, calmly, to me and my friend here." indicating Be with her head "and we can sort this all out."

The man's frame drooped, his head falling so his chin touched his chest. The merchant, still eyeing his would-be attacker with fearful, beady eyes, slinked forwards and straightened up, his face still covered in sweat. "w-w-well you s-s-see Captain, I-I-I was happ-happily minding my own business, l-l-like any other day, abiding all the l-l-laws and all, when thi-thi-this beast of a man and his c-c-companions arrived and asked for wine rather impolitely might I add. I-I-I just agreed and he g-g-gave me gold enough f-f-for two flagons so that's what..."

At this point, the large man regained all of his angry energy from before. In an elegant revival of fury, he charged at the merchant with his chest puffed out, fist pulled all the way back and all of the hair on his body standing on point - monobrow included. He wasn't stopping this time...

Open RP. Training Grounds.

Yi had the man on the ground, his arm bending, just enough pressure to hurt, but not enough to actually harm the man. Man, that was using the term loosely. He was younger than her, both of them were, and both of them were green as all one could imagine the grass was in the full of spring. This was how she taught, this was how they learned, a couple of people at a time, one lesson at a time.

"I give! I give!!"

She let go of his arm. She had to give them credit, they'd scored a couple of hits on her, but it wasn't really enough to slow her down, not with just fists from people still learning how to properly use them. As he soothed his arm some, she offered her hand to him, to help him up, purposefully choosing the one he'd have to take with that same sore arm. He almost grimaced at her, but he knew better, knew the pain would help. She pulled him up swiftly, just to let the hurt linger a little longer, stay a little sharper, and he stifled a grunt as best he could.

"You know, one of these days, you and Sheng there, might just put up a real fight for me."

She gave a small grin, always the one to egg things on, to push a little more than she really had to.

"Well maybe one day, you'll let us use actual weapons, and we'll actually have a chance."

He tried to give a grin back too, but it didn't seem quite as full as hers, considering he was rubbing at his elbow.

"A sword is just a sword, it won't make you anymore skilled at using it. You need to learn how to be a weapon first, then maybe you boys can have some toys to play with."

She gave him a small slap on the face, and then grabbed his shoulder and pushed him the direction he was to go.

"Go get cleaned up, you're an absolute mess Fei."

Her face said not to question it, and she had to admit that being in 'charge' of anyone, had it's own little rewards, that she could tell them what to do, and they had to. Both of them just nodded, and left, headed back towards the barracks to get cleaned up. Once they were gone, Yi took this time to plop very ungracefully on the ground, and fall back onto it, to cool down some. She really didn't care if it was unexpected by most people, or even likely to be a scene, as far as she knew she was alone, and looking up at the sky sometimes helped her clear her head.

I should really head out soon. Maybe Ye, or Bei Hai. Haven't been up north in a long while, might not be the worst things to see if anyone I know up there is still kicking around. She sighed to herself, wanting to at least get a few more people trained up, ready for what might be ahead for them, but she also didn't really expect to be here this long. Why am I even still here? She closed her eyes for a moment, just breathing in the chill air, exhaling the sigh for the world to hear...

Li Jun could see what was about to happen, if she could write a manual then the merchant's handling of the situation would make a perfect example of what not to do. Some part of her wouldn't have minded the merchant getting thumped but she knew that couldn't happen. Unfortunately.

Li Jun tried to position herself in front of the charging bull, setting herself for the likely painful impact, elbow out sharply towards his stomach to try to wind him.

The red mist had long-since descended and Li Jun's quick move to intercept didn't even register in the mind of the large ruffian. So it came as a bit of a shock when he felt a sudden impact on his midriff. It was precise enough to cause the air to escape his lungs (it was heading out with a scream regardless) but the weight of the man continued with his momentum and he crashed into the guard captain. They fell to the ground and a cloud of dust puffed up in dramatic effect. The man rolled onto his side, his eyes bulging, and he clutched his stomach as he wheezed. Meanwhile, the merchant had simultaneously flinched, cowered, squealled and prayed to whatever higher power he thought of first.

Wai Be looked on in bemusement. How are people filled with such violence? Still, at least the guard captain had shown a quick reflex and reassuring bravery.

It was visible on people's faces the general state of mind. Anxiety, a restrained agitation and sarcastic comments. Many here had no hope. While walking through the market, looking for medicinal herbs, Ju-long's thoughts wandered about the dire situation in Wan City. That the elite can soon reach a consensus about who should lead - he wished.

"How much for this bundle of Ju Hua? They look old."

He stopped in front of a stand that looked promising.

Merchant: "Oh, master. These herbs are in great condition. They were picked up this morning. We also have them dehydrated. 5 copper coins for the fresh bundle. 10 for the dehydrated."

Ju-long: "Shouldn't you be selling them cheaper, to make enough money to leave the city quicker?"

Playing with words, he intended to make that little merchant to reveal the thoughts circulating among the people of Wan. Would they stand their ground, or give away to fear very soon?

Merchant: "Wan is my hometown. I was raised here and this is where I also earn my everyday bread. I'm confident that the nobles will soon choose the new magistrate. So I have no intention to leave. 5 copper coins for the fresh bundle."

The merchant smiled and Ju-long could not contain his laughter.

Ju-long: "You're a tough trader, merchant master. Well, the fair is big. I'll keep looking around. Have a nice day."

The two parted with a nod. Maybe not all was lost, Ju-long thought. Maybe the city was only in need of someone to point out the north.

Bai Zheng walked through the marketplace inspecting the various booths and their wares. Prices were low, much lower than they should have been, and that hurt Bai Zheng to some degree because he knew that it meant people were leaving Wan, likely following the fool of a magistrate that had led the city for years. Zheng had disliked the man before, but for his feckless abandonment of the city when it needed him most Zheng hated him now. There were a few hold outs, though, and Zheng made a mental note of them to make sure that he would frequent these shops when he had the chance to.

It was not long before he noticed another man walking through the market as well, doing the same thing as he.

As they both inspected the wares of a stall, Bai Zheng commented, "It is nice to see someone else who is not in a panic."

Li Jun was, unsurprisingly, somewhat winded by having a heavy man crash on top of her but she had enough wits about her to stagger to her feet, drawing her sword to place against the man's throat, his foot on his wheezing stomach. Not entirely out of need for safety. Between heavy breaths, Li Jun declared

"Your under...arrest for....attempted assault. Guards.... take him to cool...off."

She withdraw the sword when the guards were ready to haul the dazed brute away. Li Jun watching, her hands on her legs and bent over as she recovered her breathe, to ensure he didn't make a break for it. Mentally she shut out the merchant as the job was done, she looked at Wai Be with what smile she could muster.

"Thanks for your help earlier. Are you alright sir?"
