Success

Easy as pie

These starstruck lovebirds don't know what day of the week it is, let alone where their purses are. While they bill and coo, you relieve them of the latter.

That's a lot of deep amber they're carrying. Odd.

Rare Success

A lucky dip

You edge closer to the lovebirds, but your stealth isn't even necessary. They are so wrapped up in each other it's almost disturbing. And what treasure they've left unguarded in their purses!


Failure

Huh. So much for love being blind

Yes, yes. That's not what that means. But they saw your hand inching towards their valuables when they should have had eyes only for each other.
