    [B]Batshit
    May 6, 2078, Seattle Opera House, Seattle[/B]

    The smartly uniformed valet at the foot of the steps leading up to the Opera House opens the passenger door to Lady Tanya Marisart’s Rolls, extending a hand to assist her in leaving the luxury automobile. A white satin gloved hand reaches from inside the car and grips that of the valet, allowing him to gently pull her from her seat. Tanya pauses at the wide sidewalk and looks about her, looking to see if there is anyone she needs to talk to before climbing the steps. She nods to several people, waving at one, and moves off to the side so that the valet can close the door, allowing her chauffeur to drive off to let another smart limousine pull to the curb.

    Tanya’s eyes narrow just a bit as she catches sight of a young woman passing out leaflets just twenty feet from where she is standing. Curious, she walks over to the woman, holding out a hand. “I will take one of those, if you please. What are we campaigning for?”

    “oh, hey” beamed the girl, and oh my goodness she was so young “the groups are on the back, they’re all youth teams you know.” she fix Tanya with her big green eyes “be great to see you there”
    Tanya gorped, this little girl couldn’t be more than sixteen, Seventeen max but she carried herself much older. Oh the streets
    “would that be you there, with the guitar?”
    “yeah, they made me. I’m not very good, you might want to turn up after my set… Oh shagbasket, the fuzz” she moved with an inhuman grace and speed as she flicked her skate board onto sidewalk “got to go! they moved me on two time already” she kicked off with a cheary wave, weaving in and out of the crowd with ease.
    Tanya smiled then gathered her thoughts together, then she noticed her hand raised in an unconscious wave
    ” wow that’s a whole new level of trouble for someone”
    The opera was lovely; three hours of pure beauty. As she swept out of the door to her limousine she saw the elf girl again. Again she stopped to take in the sight girl now on the other side of the road brazenly handing out more fliers. The girl waved to without really looking round. Tanya found herself waving back, again.
    In the warmth of the car she retrieved the flier from her clutch and pulled up her itinerary.

    Tanya pauses then smiles as she sends a note to her chauffeur to hold up for a few minutes longer before coming to get her. Instead, she walks across the street to where the girl is standing. “Say, do you have time to talk to me about your cause? Maybe over some coffee? There is a small place just around the corner that serves the real stuff, if you like it, or soy if you prefer that.”

    “Er.. OK.. The fancy place round the corner? OK but no way I’m getting into the car lady” she kicked the board back on to the deck “see ya dere!”

    Tanya grins as the young girl skates away and shakes her head. Her voice is low and to herself as she watches the girl. “No, I am not sure I would get into the car, either, young woman. That shows some smarts.”

    She pulls her stole a bit tighter about her neck to ward off the cool evening air and the slight breeze coming off of the Sound and begins walking towards the coffee shop. Turning the corner, she sees the girl standing near the entrance, alternating between looking in through the large window and turning to try to catch sight of Tanya as she approaches. Tanya lifts her hand in a wave and opens the door for the pair to enter the shop.

    The warm air inside is inviting and the aromas of various coffee blends permeates the room. A slightly harried waitress frowns momentarily at Tanya’s companion, then smiles as she motions to a small table. Tanya smiles at the woman and takes a seat at the table, pulling off her gloves. Reaching across the table, she smiles at the girl. “Tanya Marisart. And you are……………..?”

    “erm well am Bronwean but most folks end up calling me batsheet” she smiled sheepishly “‘cos I got and temper and do dumb shit”
    Tanya nodded. The server interrupted, Tanya ordered a coffee and a ceasar salad. When she looked back Bronwean was counting her cash
    “it’s OK honey i’ ll…”
    “no lady a pay ma way.” the girl countered defensively “Can I get a tall latte and a salad sandwich please.”

    Tanya nods. “Very well, I would be wary of me, too. Now, why don’t you tell me something about the charities that you are supporting. I could get behind some youth activities, if they are legitimate.”

    “OK so we trying to get five roller Derby. We’ll I say we I mean them I just work at the bar they’re using” she pulled out a soggy flier. Pointing at each notice. “we got mom’s of metas on board and the local tribe aaand I might have the local fire department to come do burger eating race” she look directly at her
    Tanya asked ” if you’re not involved why are you handing out fliers on a wet evening?”
    “I’m good with people and well yu know, it’s a good thing. It’s good bread upon the water isn’t it?”
    As she spoke Tanya looked her over. The ancient armoured jacket from a long defunct security company, the ripped at patched trousers the black calus on her thumb. Tanya stopped damned if she wasn’t good but why would a young girl have a black calus on her right thumb. There were no gang colours on her.

    Tanya nods and sips at her coffee, savoring the rich taste as she listens to Bronwean speak. “MmmHmm, casting bread on the water can indeed be a good thing, provided that the money you are raising is going to where it should. Have you done due diligence to make sure that you and others are not being taken advantage of?”

    Tanya sits back, a bit puzzled at the girl’s response. “Whoa, Bronwean. I did not mean anything bad about you. I was just wondering if you were protected in case things turned out poorly. So, if I was to want to give money, I just go to this bar? Who do I ask for?”[color]

    She sips again then puts the empty cup down. [color blue]“So, do you want to take me to this bar?”

    Tanya smiles again. “When is the night? I will try my best to be there.” She absently picks up the flier, turning it round in her hands as she thinks.

    Tanya laughs, infected a bit by the girl’s enthusiasm. “I will do my best. Tell me when and what time to be there.”

    Tanya watches as the girl eats then shrugs her shoulders. “What do I want from it? Like you said, bread on the water and maybe a good word put in for me when I die to help make up for all the other things I have done. I like giving money to worthwhile causes, si I will do some research on this and will donate if I think it is a good idea. Umm, would you like me to get you a sandwich to take with you? My treat?”

    She shuffled her cash on the table and picked up her ancient backpack “please come. Tanya. Don’t makes me come find you. Can do. Got magic” she wiggled her fingers dramatically. “thanks for tagging me in here” she breazed to the door “thanks guys”

    Tanya waits for Bronwean to leave the shop before gathering her gloves and sending a message to her chauffeur to come to her location. Pulling her wrap close about her, she steps into the night, standing under the shop’s awning to ward off the rain that had started coming down as she was inside. Her mind wanders to the slight Elven girl who is going to get caught in the coming downpour.

    While waiting, Tanya begins a public search of the organization on the flier and sends off a quick message to her hacker friend, Rose, to do a more in depth search, or at least as much of one as she can get done by tomorrow. The large Rolls pulls up to the curb and John steps out of the car to open the passenger. Tanya thanks him as she slides onto the seat and let’s him know that the destination is home.

    Batshit was soaked when she got to the bar
    “your late little girl”
    “aw screw you Harry, look at me?”
    “oh, aren’t we a bundle of joy”
    “sorry Harry cold wet. Did any stuff turn up?”
    “yeah there’s a mountain of stuff back there, you make sure you sleep. Get tidied up and washed up”
    “but there’s so much to do”
    “your not the only one tomorrow”
    “this a big deal?”
    “Is for me”
    She stopped gathering glasses “it’s personal? Isn’t it?”
    “yeah, there was this nice girl working here oh how do say it wrong crowd, wrong guy, wrong choices. She died and it wasn’t nice you get me?”
    “yeah” she smiled sympathetically “I won’t pry”
    “so I’ll help where ever I can”
    “OK” she busied herself “I’ll get this done and prep breakfast”
    “OK my sweet, don’t forget to lock up before you sleep”
