Tavera thought about this. The woman she knew with the biggest breasts had been Prisca; they had been large and milky white because she kept them covered when the sun was out. When Tavera had been living with her, she had tried to pick one up and had needed both hands to do so. The other woman was a mother with five children, all of them young and still nursing for food. What was he getting at? “Mums and the brass, I suppose,” she offered, trying to guess what his logic was. He nodded, blowing his nose and looking into the grimy handkerchief, grimacing a he did.
The little girl was tall for what her face said her age was and skinny, her hair dark and greasy, barely long enough to cover her slightly pointed ears. One of them had been mutilated; where there was supposed to be a point was instead a straight line, pink and tender where a knife had cut the cartilage away. Her hair had been shaved a few weeks back to get rid of lice. “Can't have bugs hopping about when I'm on business,” Prisca had said as she had shaved the knotty black locks off. Tavi remembered how she looked in the mirror after the haircut and how she had cried so pitifully, her sunken in eyes becoming bloodshot and her face smudged with dirt and tears.
Tavi frowned slightly, her large mouth still wet with beer. That hadn't been a funny trick, she had thought but everything since then had been fine, better than her life before. The half elf girl enjoyed the instructions she received from Derk and the smile she got from him when she came back with something good had made her heart beat quickly in her chest and her cheeks warm with happiness. There was a wish to make him happy and so she tried to think of what he had told her, blinking her dark eyes.
