The rain has slowed, but not fully stopped. Allan pulls up his cloak and gestures to Daiki,

"Should make things easier as all the good souls will be in the taverns drinking and quite glad to hear some fine music."

A tavern. Perfect. Daiki already knows how he's going to get around this problem.

Enthusiastically: "Let's go, then!"

"I can't be sure," Daiki says, feigning deep thought. He's very good at it. "Burly guy. Blondish-brown hair. Not the smartest guy ever."

He figures that description has to apply to somebody in Nottingham.

"A guard."

After all, even if he is just making this up off the top of his head, he needs to make it believable. Anybody who's burly, not that smart, and has reason to know the Sheriff's business is likely to be a guard.

"Won't we stand out like sore thumbs?"

Which Daiki is kind of hoping for.

"I'll see if I can ask around, maybe."

Daiki just settles down in a corner for a moment, looking around for anybody he looks burly, with blond-brown hair.

Not too distracted, Daiki thinks. Tipsy, but not too drunk. Greedy, if possible, in the sense of wanting money.

Daiki makes his way over to him, swiping a few purses of money on the way: Ones left unattended, ones on the belts of people to drunk to notice - he's very good at picking out which ones aren't being watched and taking them so that nobody notices.

"How're you today?"

Date: 2010-07-06 10:06 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] treasure-sniper.livejournal.com
"Thanks, I will."

Daiki sips thoughtfully for a few moments, trying to check if Allan can hear them. When he's pretty confident that he can't, he turns back to the man.

"What's your name?"

"The perfect man for me, then." He lowers his voice slightly: "Now, don't cause a fuss, but that singer up there? Is one of the outlaws from Sherwood."

"Well, that's the thing, isn't it? I'm one of the Sheriff's ... special enforcers, if you will. He sent me to infiltrate the outlaws and ruin their plans," Daiki says solemnly. "That's why I need you, Sam. Someone clever and loyal."

Headtilt.

"Somebody who won't let on that he knows that singer is an outlaw, but who will tell him that he's heard the Sheriff plotting to steal the Hand of Herne. Can you do that?"

From: [identity profile] treasure-sniper.livejournal.com
"The Sheriff will be very happy with you. You could end up his favourite. Besides," Daiki cocks his head a little, "once you're done, you can feel free to take offense at something, drag the singer outside and beat him to within an inch of his life, if you want. I'll have to at least pretend to try and stop you, but I'm only skinny."

If the guard wants more, he's prepared for that, too.

"Up to you, my friend, up to you. I need to move on and see about talking to some other people now, give the pretense of asking around."

"Not to worry. He'll talk to you eventually," Daiki says. "Just don't give the information immediately. Act a bit reluctant."

He then moves away, wandering over to somebody else who fits the same general description. He keeps an eye on Samuel, though.

"So, anything interesting going on?"

Date: 2010-07-06 10:44 pm (UTC)

Daiki makes a slightly weary face, and moves onto somebody else. Somebody a bit more sober looking.

"Enjoying the evening?"

Daiki eases him off.

"I'll go do that then," he says, wandering away. He glances back at Allan, and then to Samuel.

Daiki raises an eyebrow in response.

Daiki makes a point of looking alarmed, as if he genuinely wasn't expecting this. Even in the midst of a bar brawl, it's not too much of a task for him to duck, weave, and jump his way around people and threw the tavern.

When he gets to Samuel, he doesn't bother with anything especially flashy. He just swings a stool at his head from behind.

Daiki follows him, shooting a quick grin at the tavern before ducking out the door.
