Why bother getting in the middle of someone elses business?
She moved along down the street towards the man who was awkwardly trying to fish things out of his pocket while juggling a suit in his arms. ”Well, no wonder you were so easy to steal from,” she commented with a giggle of laughter. The suit in his hands looked mighty fancy and probably cost a pretty penny at that. No wonder he had been picked as a target. Older man with his arms full? Zero chance of him running after? Yeah, Makenzi would have done the same if she had to pick anyone out on the street. Thankfully, she was doing alright for herself. There was no need to steal from pathetic looking old guys. ”Quite unfortunate, for you. Fortunate for that fellow. He probably made off with quite a good deal, didn’t he?” She smiled sweetly at the man, rocking back and forth on her feet infront of him.
”I wouldn’t bother calling the cops. That kids long gone. He’s been hitting this street up the last few days. Caught a few of the people coming out of my shows the last few nights. I’m sure he’s eating quite well thanks to your generous contribution.” It was her day off tonight, but that never stopped her from ending up at the theatre anyways. Call her a workaholic, if you will. Spinning around on her heels, she pointed down the street. ”If you did want to walk along after him, I think he hangs out around that block up there. Pretty sketch, though, if you ask me. Might be a bad idea for a fellow like you to wander over there.” Tilting her head, she peered back at him and laughed. ”Might end up naked, if you try. Bet they could sell your clothes for a pretty penny too!”
She said it as a joke, but it wasn’t uncommon for people to get jumped in the streets of the city. He’d come off lucky, if you asked her. ”Best to just cut your losses while you’re ahead, sir,” she suggested.
A laugh escaped her when the man turned his skepticism on her. Did she blame him? No, not at all. It was still amusing to think that she looked like a threat. ”Am I that intimidating looking? There she was, multi-colored hair tossed up in a sloppy bun with minimal makeup on and dressed in a cute vintage style dress. Appearances aside, Makenzi was far from the type to steal from people in such a brutish manner. Con them out of their money in gambling bets? Oh, sure, that she would definitely do. ”Nope! I have a job. Right there in that theatre, actually,” she pointed over to it just to help her cause. ”Just don’t try to make any bets with me in a card game and we’ll be just fine,” she added with a wink and a smirk of her lips.
”And even if I were interested in mugging you, all you have left is your clothes and quite frankly mens fashion just isn’t my style.” Although back in Wonderland it was certainly up her alley. It was such an odd thing to think about too. Here she was in this new world, a lady, when back in Wonderland she'd been a male hare. The realization when her memories came back had made her quite confused for a period of time. Makenzi was certainly enjoying herself though even if putting together cute outfits was quite the daily task. Her head tilted to the side, "Are you going to be able to get home without your wallet? Traveling through the city without money was actually practically impossible. Unless you were willing to walk home, which was laughable because of the size of the city blocks.
