More likely a testament to his cheating skill, but Jeremy could hardly prove it when he hadnâ€™t been there to witness it. Had Heddings been a decent sort, he would have sent Percy off to bed, instead of plying him further with drink and accepting the rings into the pot. Had he been a decent sort, he would have let Percy redeem them for their value. Percy had even been willing to pay more than they were worth. He wasnâ€™t poor, after all, as he had already come into his inheritance when his father died.
That was the surest, quickest way to get them up in arms and to have the authorities come sweeping through the slums in search of the culprits. Finding a house full of orphans who werenâ€™t official orphans would be a dead giveaway. And the horror stories that Dagger told about real orphanages were enough to enforce that rule. He knew firsthand, since heâ€™d escaped from one years ago. Danny was breaking that rule tonight. Not that the gentry were off-limits, no indeed. But they were only to be robbed when they were found out and about, on the streets, in taverns, at market or otherwise shopping, where they might not even notice a few coins missing, and if they did, might think theyâ€™d merely dropped them by accident or spent them without remembering.
Touching, however, was much too intimate, and Jeremy reacted to intimacy on a purely prurient level. And the simple fact was, he didnâ€™t want to want this wench. She was beautiful, yes, but she was a thief, probably raised in the gutter or worse. Her personal habits were more than likely so far below his standards that they werenâ€™t worth contemplating. There was no help for it. Percy, poor fellow, was no doubt as exhausted as he presently looked. But before Jeremy actually put his hands on the girl, he realized that enough time had passed while contemplating his dilemma that the coach was on its way, the outskirts of the city were in sight, and it would be a simple matter to keep their prize from escaping now.
