Hearing that loathed nickname had Coral gritting her teeth and eying a rock thoughtfully. But tossing it at the boy's head would only get her into trouble. "Don't call me that, Kon," she spat as she turned to face him. "What do you want?"
Some of the other Ilyamen thief children watched the exchange with interrest, including Niamh. Having her five-year-old sister watching only made Coral more determined not to let Kon upset her.

Coral scowled and tightened her hands into fists. "You take that back right now!" she shouted. "Of course I'm going, and I'm no begger, Kon."
"Not any more," one of the Maelstrom thief kids muttered and Coral blushed faintly. The fact she'd once been a guild charity case, rather then one of the thief-born kids (since her father had left the guild before she was born) or a true thief sometimes bothered her.

"Yeah, well, we'll see what you're made of tonight, won't we?" Kon laughed, his confidence restored at having one of his fellow Maelstrom fellows backing him up on the challenge. "If you get caught, we'll know you're not fit to serve the thieves here."

"I won't get caught," Coral replied. "I'm just as good a thief as anyone." She paused, then added, "And when I get more then you do, you have to get on your knees and admit, in front of everyone, that the Ilyamen thieves are better then you any day."

"Deal!" Kon agreed hotly. He didn't really have any doubts about his thieving ability. He knew he could outdo this Ilyamen rat-brat. Of course, just to be sure, he wouldn't be above asking a mate or two to lend a hand where nobody was looking. After all, Maelstrom had its pride.
