I could get behind it being some random decoy. Or even the actress that did the hiring. Just way too cocky of Arya to be strolling about, not a care in the world.
The reason I picked the actress that she saved is because there's added insurance there for Arya. If the actress completes getting her passage on the ship back to westeros without getting killed, then all well and good. She didn't want her dead in the first place. If she happens to get killed by the Waif, then the contract Arya was sent out on is completed. No reason to hunt her down and kill her then. They may come after her to bring her back to the FM, but she'll no longer be required to pay with her life for a contract not completed.
No the Waif got her good. She stuck the blade in and twisted it so that the wound won't close.
The other reason I don't think that was Arya is because of her behaviour. Before her encounter with the Waif, she's not looking at the people around her, Arya would be looking because she knows they'll be after her. She goes to the trouble to change her appearance but shows no caution what ever? Come now. Then after being stabbed she's terrified of anyone who so much as looks at her. Suddenly she can't trust that they are not all Faceless Men. Arya would know they only send one assassin at time to do a job.
