Kait beat another elderly man at an arm wrestling match. As she took a sip of her drink, she grimaced because it was too bitter. "See, I beat you! You never knew that a girl could be stronger than you, huh?" She exclaimed, a smirk on her face. "Who else wants to go against Kait Hawk?" She asked loudly, standing on her chair. Nobody answered, which made Kait's hopes fall down the drain. She liked doing arm wrestling matches. In fact, she loved them, mostly because everybody that she went against always lost to her which meant that she always won. Taking a sip of her drink, Kait sighed, slumping in her chair as she waited for somebody to sit across from her and do an arm wrestling match.
Kait took another sip of her drink, which she was getting used to now despise the terrible bitter taste that the drink had. Why didn't anybody want to go against her? It was quite a shame. After all, she came here almost every single week, played against everybody, and won all of the time. She often bragged about it, but if the person looked ruthless she didn't do anybody about it. Then, she looked in the corner. It was actually really dark, so she couldn't really see. her powers. How could she be so stupid? She was a sight! Kait used her powers to see who was in the corner, so she wouldn't have to get up and walk over there, possibly getting strangled. It was a person.
Kait looked at the person who was coming over to her. She looked up at her and gulped a bit. Kait barely got scared because arm wrestle matches were usually quite silly, but she was actually scared. This was an opponent that she knew nothing about. Then, she watched the bag of coins land on the table. She wanted that really bad. "Sure." Kait replied with a smirk.
Kait stared at the wood of the table. One half of her wished that she never said anything and just wandered around town. The other half of her was begging her to do this. Then, she put her arm on the table. "Okay. I'm ready."
It seemed like Kait's heart was beating out of her chest. She had no idea if she was going to win, but she didn't want to lose. It was all about her reputation, mostly the money, but still about her reputation. Then, her arm felt like it was going down and Kait was starting to get a bit scared about that.(( maybe corra? ))
Kait winced as she wrapped two fingers around her wrist, bringing it down slowly. She didn't want to lose. Not today, but it seemed like she was going to fail miserably. Biting her tongue, she had no idea what was coming up next for her.(( XD ))
Kait winced as she watched her arm slam against the wooden table. She lost. She lost and she couldn't do anything about it. Her streak had finally broke. As she looked around at everybody, she didn't know if she could handle the stares. Hopefully nobody was staring. She didn't want to know. "Nah. I'm good." Kait said. "You won fair and square. Besides, I don't need any money right now."
Kait slumped down in her seat, crossing her arms and letting out a big breath. "It is just that I have never lost before and today was kind of, you know, the big shocker that Kait Hawk wasn't even looking for." She spoke, waving her hands when she said her name. "You know my name now. What's your name if I can ask?"
Kait looked up at the girl who has just walked into the bar and pub, some of her brown hair was over her brown eyes. "Violet Haberdasher? That's your real name?" Kait asked, taking another sip of her drink. It still tasted the same, bitter, but it was awfully addicting. As she messed with the hole in the knee of her jeans, she looked back up at the girl who was talking to her. Then, she looked at the girl who had just walked in. Hopefully she wasn't royalty. Either way, she was fine if she was or not. After all, Kait didn't judge, half of the time.
Kait nodded, taking another sip of her drink for what seemed like the millionth time today. The bitter taste was starting to get quite addicting for her. After all, it wasn't that bad. "Oh, um, yeah. It is actually sort of crowded in here. I'm Kait Hawk by the way." She said with a smile. "And I totally get what you mean, Elzie. One time I have seen some grown men have a fight over something that was absolutely stupid. However, I can't remember what though."
Kait lightly laughed. "Yeah. Some of these men are goofballs. Even the women get rowdy sometimes. It is so crazy. I may have went crazy some point in my life, but I don't think that we should really talk about that right now." Kait added. Then, she shook her head. It would be cool if she had siblings, or any friends in general. "Oh no. I wish I did, but sadly I don't."
(( it's totally fine! ))Kait took another sip of her drink as she watched the boy sit down next to Elzie. "Wait, if you don't mind me asking, is that your brother?" She asked curiously as she took another sip of her drink, setting it on the table gently because it seemed to be super heavy.
Kait stayed quiet as she brushed a piece of brown hair behind her ear that had fallen loose from her frizzy brown braid. She listened deeply to the conversation that Alec, Elzie, and Corra were having which was rather quite interesting. Then, Alec mentioned a panther. "Really? You tried to smuggle a panther?" She asked, amazed. "That's crazy, but it the best way possible." She spoke, nodding as she took another sip of her drink.
"Two weeks to track and capture the panther? That's crazy brilliant." Kait replied, grinning at the thought of going on a wild adventure just to capture an animal that could possibly bite your face off. "Of course. I'm pretty sure that we would all love to go to the harbor sometime this week. Even Corra would love to go. Won't you, Corra?" Kait asked, nudging her new friend.
Kait slumped down in her chair, wincing even though she wasn't hurt. "Okay, but hasn't everybody heard of the royals in this town?" She asked, putting her hands on the table. "I mean, I have nothing else to say." She mumbled, suddenly feeling a bit scared even though that being scared of a person was nothing like her at all. "Maybe we can all just pass this conversation and talk about something nice."
Kait slumped down in her seat even more, even though it probably wasn't even possible to keep on going. Alec, Elzie, and Corra could still see her. Her feet were resting on the legs of the table. Of course, she didn't say anything. She was actually pretty scared that these people would probably despise her after she left, pointing at her and saying mean things about this very day. In fact, she was terrified.
Kait looked to Corra to Elzie and back to Corra. "I don't have any evidence! I promise! I'm, I'm just normal." She spoke, shrugging with a sigh. "I honestly didn't know that she was a duchess, I promise." Kait explained, crossing her heart. To be honest, she wasn't that scared anymore. She was Kait Hawk. She couldn't be scared of anything and she wasn't going to let herself be scared of anything.
