“He is not a lord,” a child’s voice put in. “He’s in the Night’s Watch, stupid. From Westeros.” A girl edged into the light, pushing a barrow full of seaweed; a scruffy, skinny creature in big boots, with ragged unwashed hair. “There’s another one down at the Happy Port, singing songs to the Sailor’s Wife,” she informed the two bravos. To Sam she said, “If they ask who is the most beautiful woman in the world, say the Nightingale or else they’ll challenge you. Do you want to buy some clams? I sold all my oysters.” “I have no coin,” Sam said. “He has no coin,” mocked the fair-haired bravo. His dark-haired friend grinned and said something in Braavosi. “My friend Terro is chilly. Be our good fat friend and give him your cloak.” “Don’t do that either,” said the barrow girl, “or else they’ll ask for your boots next, and before long you’ll be naked.” “Little cats who howl too loud get drowned in the canals,” warned the fair-haired bravo. “Not if they have claws.” And suddenly there was a knife in the girl’s left hand, a blade as skinny as she was. The one called Terro said something to his fair-haired friend and the two of them moved off, chuckling at one another.
I miss singing with you, and I miss fighting with you in the shower because I want the water to be warm not hot. I miss sleeping next to you, I miss waking up next to your face and having to remove all your hair away from your face. I miss watching you dress up, I miss watching you shave and most importantly I miss your “have a good day at work” kisses.
Because Arya does have positive female relationships despite her male-heavy storyline.
Weasel: Arya helps keep her safe when Yoren’s group is attacked, saves her from abandonment, and tells her to run when the Mountain’s men come for them
Lady Smallwood: treats Arya kindly, bathes her, dresses her, feeds her, treats her with maternal care, gives her boy’s clothing to wear when Arya leaves, and tells her she is pretty, something that sticks with Arya later on
The waif: spends time teaching languages and learning the Common Tongue from Arya, also teaches her to play the “lying game”
Brea and Talea: friends of Cat of the Canals, works and sleeps with Arya, Arya misses them
Merry, Bethany, the Sailor’s Wife, Yna, Lanna, Assadora: Merry buys a dozen clams from Arya, all are kind to Arya and teach her stories and history, have good hearts
I’ll eat when I’m hungry, drink when I’m dry I make m’self welcome wherever I go Doubloons when I’m hard up and religion when I die
