After dressing up and cutting your hair, grabbing Claw, you head out onto the street. People are already heading to work in the docks and stores are beginning to open. You notice there are guards on every corner, but you're able to avoid them deftly.
You make your way to Mama Feng's, a seamstress shop where Mama and her four sisters and their sixteen daughters are work day and night to create enough clothing to sell each day to keep everyone fed. The few husbands and sons are all off in the Earth King Army and they don't have a single bender among them. This is where Ip used to work as a hired hand, a protector and well, a big brother sometimes. They all live in that house and it is pretty cramped, usually a couple girls to a bed, hammocks, too.
The house sits at the end of a ramshackle cul-de-sac, butted up near the outer wall. It doesn't get light there with the rest of the city due to shadows, so the place looks like night. But you can see candles lit in the windows and the ladies are hard at work. As you get closer, you see Boot is sitting up on a broken wall beside the shop, picking at his toes with a knife. He's trying to look casual, but you know he's on sentry duty right now. Which is a bummer, but he doesn't even see you until you're near and when he does, he does not recognize you.
