Nadia had never looked so sheepish when entering a store. Sure, she felt occasional guilt for buying something frivolous or ordering takeout three days in a row, but this was different - she was here to trade in life, and that was difficult. It was impossible to even look Mavrik in the face as she meandered up to the counter.
"I, um... hello. I have some creatures to sell," She said, her voice tiny. "They are not living their best lives with me, and I believe that they should have an opportunity at something better. Would you mind doing an appraisal for me?"
She had a list of species and numbers on hand, in case that was easier than making the trek outdoors to see them. It would be easier on her, for sure - she didn't think she could go back and look at their faces again. It was dreadfully sad.
Mavrik had been making a lot of sales recently. In fact, he was looking at his books when he heard the bell above the door, and turned to see the customer. "Certainly." He said in reply to the customer, before sitting down the salebook and moving towards the outside. "I'll take a look at em', if you don't mind." He liked to check and see how cared for and what the quality of the creatures were before buying. "It won't take me long if you want to wait 'ere." He said before stepping out to give them the once over.
After he was done, he comes in with figures of his own. "I can give you 1500 credits for the lot." He said. They all looked to be in good health.
Nadia gave a small nod of consent, and stayed inside the store as Mavrik went out to look at the creatures. She was grateful for the opportunity to stay away; she felt hideously guilty, and even if it was cowardly of her, she wanted to avoid seeing them again. It would make the break easier. When the man returned, she offered a polite smile, but the intention behind it was not quite there.
"Thank you," She said. "That would be quite wonderful. I appreciate your time."
Putting a value on lives seemed alien and uncomfortable to her, but it was the way of the world. At least she knew that they would be taken care of well with Mavrik - she'd bought creatures from him before and always found them in the rudest of health. Hopefully, hers would go on to find good homes quickly, rather than having to wait around for a while.
Mavrik nodded, figuring that when folks came here with pets, they were generally quite okay with his fair pricing on pets. He counted out the credits he'd pay for the lot and handed them over as he did so, finishing with a "-Aand 1,500. There you go." Then he nodded. "Thanks for doin' business with ya, I can get the critters wrangled up mysel'." He flashed a quick grin and stepped over Chance on the way out to go wrangle up the beasties he'd paid for. With any luck, these would get new homes as soon as possible.
Twilight-Claw: Hey Ridelys, I still got a Sarane Fidelity Egg if your interested in trading your Green Drake for it, you'd have another shot in trying for it then.

Ridelys: If you can barter someone else's champion voucher off them for a gold hen, I'm happy with that too. XD \ Otherwise, I'm open to hearing offers.
