Sunday Evening, A Random Street Corner

Inara had traded in her outfit of yesterday for one that was much more conventional, at least by her standards--a pair of low-rise jeans and a midriff-bearing sweater.

She'd done so well the night before, without even having to do actual work, that she'd decided to try her luck again.

It just so happened that Miss Eliza Doolittle, formerly of Wimpole Street, London, was also seeking a street-corner that night, for what else was a girl to do when a man plucks her out of the gutter and ruins her, leaving her with a toffee-nosed accent and no money, and her flowr shop goes bankrupt due to the lack of an E, except resort to certain trades not legal in Texas?

When she saw Inara on the corner which she'd come to think of as 'hers,' Eliza's eyes narrowed. "Here, you, girl, you can't be working here. This is a respectable corner. I've got flowers and all." She pointed to her basket. Not that she actually sold the flowers; she just did things with them that was quickly gaining her a rather widespread clientele.

She couldn't resist asking. "What do you do with the flowers? And how much extra is it?"

"Wouldn't you like to know, Missy," Eliza sniffed at the first chit. To the second she rounded on her heel and said, "I'm not going any bloody where. Take off, you!"

"I was just making conversation," Inara shrugged, now doomed to forever wonder about the violets thing, "but this was my corner first, so if the two of you are looking for the low-rent district, it's thataway."

She pointed toward the pond. "I think you'll find the clientele much more to your liking."

"We Coulde do thys the Easy Waye," the Countess huffed, putting particular emphasys on easy, "or the Hard Waye. I am Contente with Eyther."

Really. A Chylde and a streetWalker who used Flowyrs in Unmentionable Ways. They were no match for Her.

Eliza frowned for a moment, almost as if she was getting a headache from trying to deciphyre the woman's words, though since they were spoken aloud, that clearly couldn't be the case, so it must just be the pain of her mere presence.

"Well, you're not getting me to budge, I'll have you know! I've been using this corner for ages. Why don't you two head down to the docks? I've heard there's good pickings down there if you're the sort to settle for scraps."

"I don't see why I should go down to the docks when I have such a nice spot here," Inara said, folding her arms under her breasts and glaring at both women. "You weren't here yesterday, and that means this corner is mine."

Eliza's eyes blazed as she pointed at the woman. "What did you just call me, you stroppy buck-toothed cow?"

"Either a Common Whore or a Trifle," Inara said, helpfully, if not completely accurately. "I tend to agree about the stroppy and buck-toothed, though."

Oh. Oh.

It was Onne Now.

The Countess took only a half-second to decide Whych of them to Attacke Fyrst.

Then she got her Fingers in the Flower-Gyrl's hair and pulled.

"Aaaaaoooooooooow," Eliza bellowed, twisting and turning to try to free herself from the painful grasp. She aimed a kick at the other woman's ankle. "You let go of me!"

"Hey!" Inara yelled, getting kicked instead and reaching for the back of Eliza's blouse to give it a good yank. "Keep me out of it!"

The Countess let Go of the flower-gyrl's Haire, aiming a Vicious Slappe for the younger whore's Fayce.

Buck-toothede. Please.
