Taliesin had been 'on the run' for a long time now. He could tell the difference between a person who was there to try and kill him or a person who was there to gain his services by the way they walked. Many other assassins had tried to trick him into thinking they were in the later category but there was always the purposeful swish in their movements that just screamed their true intentions. This was true of the woman who was approaching him right now as well. She was trying very hard to be diffident in her approach but a couple times she slipped up stepping around tables in a manner that was distint. So before she could even try to sit down and lul him into complacency he was on his feet and his sword was resting against her throat. He smiled brightly. "Now miss, you are quite good. I can see why they hired you. Because you are so good, I'm going to give you the oppourtunity to walk away. Should you return later, know I will kill you without hesitation." He didn't really expect her to take his offer, and she didn't. Almost as fast as he had drawn his sword there was suddenly a dagger swinging up to knock his blade away while she lunged in for the kill. He slid smoothly to the left and replaced his sword on her neck. This time when he spoke, his golden eyes glowed. "Last chance." She turned her head slightly and stared into his eyes before nodding slightly. His smile brightened even more and he took a step back, waving his hand at her. "Off you go then." She watched him for a moment longer before hastily retreating. "I'm glad she took my offer. It would have been a waste to kill one of the other half decent ones, don't you think?" Tal turned and raised his eyebrow at another patron. He had pegged -them- as potential clients from the moment they had walked in.
