Author's Notes: But what flavor is it?



The vendor in the market stall looks away from his wares in a pattern. First, shout at passers-by until someone stops. Second, assist the customer with their purchases. Third, wave them off with their money in his hand. Fourth and last, duck out of sight to put the money in a secure box under his crate-chair.

Merlin is new to this Camelot market, but he has been watching this one hand pie vendor for an hour. There is a very narrow window of time in which he could grab his next meal. He thinks he can make it if he times his approach right.

He'll need to casually walk out from his hiding place in the shadows across the road. He'll need to appear to be browsing to blend in with the rest of the market-goers. He can approach the next stall over as the vendor's customer is leaving. Then, as soon as the pasty vendor turns his back, he'll do a quick grab-and-run.

He won't even need to use his magic to cause a distraction.

He waits for the next customer to take an interest in the vendor's offerings, and then positions himself for his plan.

The customer walks away. The vendor ducks down. Merlin runs.
