In the end, the three of them agreed on a plan, so the time has come to change words into action. But first of all, there were some preparations they had to make. The one that was the most pressing was arming Lin, because the former pirate was a swordswoman, however, unlike Zasha´s sword, her weapon was confiscated by marines. Fortunately, there were more than enough weapon stores in the city open for business, so after an hour or so she finally managed to find one, that matched her style. Jan paid for the blade, and while Lin was still slightly upset because the original sword was a gift from her father, they could finally head to the city.
To avoid unnecessary attention, Jan took them to the city to visit the usual tourist attraction while always consulting with the map so they would pass through Hammer Street several times during the day. All the spendings were on him, so at least Lin took a few souvenirs, including a small plush cat.
The street itself was truly nothing special. Short and crooked, it was composed of old buildings that were put together from a mixture of stone, wood, and mudbricks, exposed under the cracking plaster. The building themselves were the usual mix of shabby residential buildings that were three to six storeys tall, with one to two storeys tall workshops and smaller houses. As most of the workshops were closed the street itself was mostly empty even during the day, with just few local people walking around. Probably the best place for an ambush was at the beginning of its second half, as the street itself got narrowed in one of its many turns, just in front of an old and closed tannery. Both Jan and Lin could easily find a cover at the beginning and the end of the turn so it was the ideal place for their plan.
To somehow pass the rest of their time, Jan took them to dinner at a good restaurant in the harbour so Zasha wouldn´t stick out that much, after which they split and each one headed in a different direction, so they would arrive at their posts in different slightly different times, before the prison carriage even starts it´s journey.
