Hot and Cold

A coffee shop

Upon which Atlanta deliberately set about plying Soba with enough strong drink to render her senseless, a project easily accomplished thanks to Soba's greedy appetites and her frail will. Atlanta then hired a rickshaw and had Soba taken to the Ik Mablis, the cheap hotel on Quisling Hok. She left Soba sleeping amidst the bedbugs in a cockroach cavern, then paid a loitering messenger boy to run a note to Yulius, telling him to meet her at the Hot and Cold 'so we can discuss a certain third party.'
At the Hot and Cold, Atlanta ordered a coffee and a copy of the Cockfighting Times, then sat down to wait. She had chosen the Hot and Cold in preference to the Daffodil Burk because she suspected her confrontation with Yulius might end with the furniture being thrown around, and it would be inconvenient for her to be banned for life from the Daffodil Burk. [WoH Ch12]
