The fairgrounds were even busier than usual. The summer equinox was the biggest celebration of the year here, so Adriana knew she'd be able to get some good stuff today. She pulled the hood on her cloak further forward and made sure her face was shadowed. As she walked past a laughing woman she carefully took hold of the woman's coin purse. In a swift, practiced movement she cut the bag's strap away from her belt and tucked it into a pocket. She quickly moved on to a different street before she stopped. Today's celebration was larger than most, because the new king was to be crowned this evening. She shook her head. She needed to stop daydreaming and get back to work if she wanted to be able to eat tonight. She tucked a stay stand of dark hair back underneath her hood and glanced around once more. She spotted a distracted looking man, and moved towards him. She slipped behind him and a tiny hand crept into his pocket. She'd done this hundreds of times and never been caught. Maybe she'd been distracted this time; maybe she'd been bumped from behind. Something happened, because the next thing she knew a strong hand was around her wrist and the man she'd been attempting to steal from was staring down at her.
