gust of wind blew
before Oda's feet
, as she stood
upon a corner of the docks and watched ripples form across crystal water.
ugh the sea's caress made her coat flutter
about softly, the woman often found herself
on the shoreline
to watch the vast expanse of azure that chur
y beneath the last beams of sunset
It was a peaceful time
stressful day had passed or
to ponder any revelations in her rese
arch, with the latter being far and few between.
Perhaps the disturbance of her ou

The outfit she wore throughout the day served well en

had of for

could not judge them for it, of course, but
she did wonder who they hoped to impress within their own family
But that was merely the melancholy of tradition getting t

It was most souring for her mood,
so a brief
attempt was made t
trail of thought to
hing more positive, such as the
upcoming announcement that was the reason for this grand Famiglia b
sides the fact that it had been a year since the last.
Despite herself, Oda worried whether anything sinister was behind the supposed announcement, for things among the Famiglia's ranks had not been going well in recent times.
erie of thought was broken by a sudden yelling from beyond the docks, that sounded panicked and drew a snap of her head to
its origin. "
Quick, stop those men!" The voice yelled, sounding particularl

He seemed like a sen

to emerge in a flight of whimsy.
If there was
danger on the island, message wa

There were many choices of what to do, but

of experience in catching whatever

Soon enough, the
entire island would be on lockdown to stop
anyone from fleeing on boats, but perhaps these criminals wouldn't know it

tizens should retreat to their homes until the matter was resolved.
the town guard did the
same, she rec

what had transpired
, including the theft
from the bank.
This was no job for the town guard, if the thieves could get into the heart of Regalo's bank
, so she was sure that at least
one other of the Famiglia would come
to shut down the docks.
As she waited for the arrival of somebody to aid her
in taking down the thieves on this section of the island, Oda
kept her gaze on the pri
vate boats that were docked on the harbor.
If any of the thieves tried to nab one, she wo

her backup was present or not.
