Default Pay Day

Taichi sat at a cafe, burning through cigarettes and sipping on black coffee from a plain white mug with a crew mate of his giving him company. They waiting for their third partner in crime to arrive. Taichi decided to show up a little early to keep an eye on the museum they were about to rob. The big guy didn't mind the wait but it was Yoi that was getting impatient, as expected. Moko still wasn't late but the girl was a hasty one.

"Why are we waiting for him again? We don't need him." She asked with some apparent anger.

Taichi wasn't going to listen to her suggestion. He was a man of his word and valued work ethics. It was a good thing that he was the one in charge and not Yoi. Despite having shinobi training, she was in some ways reckless and unstable but Taichi trusted her not to disobey a direct order.

"I don't know how serious you are about this, but no." He immediately shot down the suggestion. "He brought the job to me and so he gets half the reward."

While Taro was going to get half the reward, he wasn't going to have nearly as much spending money left over as Moko. After all he planned on giving Yoi a small portion in addition to expenses and smaller payments for the other crew members. Taichi was a generous person. Despite his love of gaining money, he never had a problem against spreading the joy with it. He enjoyed living in luxury when possible and it was always shared it with those around him.

Once shit hits the fan, you blend in with the crowd. Act like a headless chicken, because they will too. Once the tourists start leaving, you make your way to the ship.” Taichi felt the need to repeat the instructions. The last thing he wanted was for Yoi to improvise.

I know I know…” She whined back.

Moko needed to play the part today. Not just of someone going into a fancy museum during an important meeting of all the villages, but also of someone that hoped to get paid today. He had on a nice loose outfit that he had spilled too much money on a lifetime ago. Blue and gold, distinguished colors that went with his disguised appearance. With the mask technique he was able to give himself the face of an older man, at least in his 40s, who was worth giving a wide berth. His hair starting to gray, his face had slight wrinkles at the corners of his eyes, but otherwise he was just handsome. It was a look that made Moko smile at himself in the mirror that morning.

He made it to their rendezvous point, a little cafe that was making a killing with so many tourists in the area. Moko walked past Taro, signaling him as he did, and sat at the table next to them. He picked up a little sheet that served as the menu, and talked to them while keeping his eyes locked on the selection of overpriced cafe snacks.

"So this is your partner?" Moko said, "Well, if you're vouching for her, I'm sure she can handle the work we have ta' do today. Our tickets are taken care of, as is a private hotel room in case we need to lay low with no questions asked."

He waggled his eyebrows, turning his eyes on Yoi briefly.

He was trying hard to annihilate his usual accent. His method of disguise did nothing to change that, unfortunately. But at least he didn't have to worry about getting bumped in the gut and dropped a henge.

"How do the museum and streets seem today?"

Moko took out the two other tickets, and put them on the table. If Taro had any other concerns, now was the time to get them out.

She’ll handle her part just fine.” Taichi said with loads of confidence, some of it was a little fake though.

"Hello!"

Yoi stood up to shake Moko’s hand. Being polite and professional was never her thing but for some reason she was acting that way right then. Her and Taichi made an odd pairing as they were extremely different in many ways. The former grass shinobi was never hasty and he was a calm person. His moves and even his words were always well-thought out. Yoi on the other hand was none of those things. They did however share a lack of morals and a love for the pirate life.

I guess streets are busier than usual.” He noted. “But the museum has been empty as expected. It’ll probably get the usual morning crowd soon and I already saw a few groups purchasing tickets.

Yoi and Taichi each picked a ticket from the table top. Moko had delivered them just as he said he would. The mercenary also took some comfort in knowing that Moko secured a backup plan in case the group needed to hide somewhere until the storm settled. Taichi was a big fan of contingencies. It was always good to know that if things didn’t go as planned, there were other options to lean back on.

Is there anything else before we get started?” It didn’t hurt to make sure everyone involved was ready to go.

Taichi and Moko had already spent their previous meeting planning and scouting. Everything had already been agreed upon including their course of action, the getaway plan and the spoils split. So the time for talking and planning was over. That day was one for the big heist.

Moko briefly shook Yoi's hand.

There were a million things. So many little possibilities that could make this all fall apart, and that was just considering the parts of the plan he had told Taichi. There were other plans and possibilities that might not come up at all. He assumed Taichi had his own ideas, especially since he had to deal with a hungry crew that had their own wants and wishes.

"No, and our group is up soon, so we should start makin' our way. The earlier we get started, the more daylight we have ta' burn." Moko said as he checked his own ticket. He stood up as if the menu didn't interest him after all.

They were right, it wasn't too busy. The crowd size was going to be smaller than he wanted. There was also the problem that some of the folks in the tourist groups would likely be shinobi. They would have to watch for errant jutsu being tossed around during their escape. Then again, most shinobi knew that using jutsu while in the city was a dangerous prospect. Samurai took that rather seriously.

Moko nodded to Yoi, and smiled, "I'll meet the two of you in line. I'm prepared to learn a little history today."

He didn't want to get cut up today. But, he knew this wasn't where his path to vengeance ended. This was just a stepping stone toward Fukumen's neck. Unfortunately, that man stayed in a rather tall tower.
