Renathan wasn't one to go buy the cart very often at all, however, he was running an errand again, since he was going to be in the vicinity. He was to pick up two psychic injections and a... Cold injection, yes, he could remember that. He should have written it down, perhaps, but he did manage to remember it all the way up to the cart. Auburn sits on his shoulder, trilling softly, fluffing up her little mane and wings. "Cool it, Auburn." She held her wings to her more calmly.
The russet mammalian steps up to the cart, as always watching his back along the way there, since it always felt a little bit back-alley. He walks up to the cart, and speaks. "Hello, I'm after some specific injections. I hope you keep multiple of some of them?" He said, grinning beneath the mask. Voice jovial, but not excitable. This was one of those individuals that always seemed to be able to procure odd things that no one else could...
Alan smiled at the customer, always happy to see someone who knew what they wanted up front. "Of course I do." He said, gesturing to the suite of injections he had, contained in locked cases for display. "Which ones were you looking for today?"
Renathan wrapped his tails around his ankles without thinking much about it. He always did that when he was nervous, it was pretty much an obvious tell, but surely the shop-keep here would be pretty used to customers being nervous after going through the areas of the City to get to the cart. Renathan gave a respectful incline of his head and then spoke. "You are a life-saver!" He said, knowing that it was a slight buttering but at the very least it was positive. Auburn nestled into Renathan's neck braids as he detailed what he needed. "I'm in need of two Psychic Injections and a single Cold Injection." He said, already grabbing for his coin satchel. He knew that it would cost a pretty penny, he had been handed enough for the purchase of them and then some, so he wasn't too worried about the costs- they weren't really for him anyway.
Alan smiled, always happy to get a compliment. "Well, I certainly appreciate it. Let me get those for you." He said and turned to one of his chests, undoing a flurry of locks before finally getting to the compartment he kept his stock of injections in. He took the two out and held them in his hand, swirls of energy seeping through his fingers. "There we go. Three injections- that will be 1500 credits, if you don't mind." He said politely.
Renathan was always a little off-put by this shopkeeper. It was originally just the culture shock; the first time Renathan had come here he had just migrated here after all. He had only known a little Ssashirk then and it wasn't really enough to get him along, not in the Labs. He'd gotten someone to transcribe for him, thankfully. The mammalian patted the Izer up on his shoulder and he then went to search around for the credits. What was the price again? He thought that... "1,500 credits? Are you sure?" He counted it out any-way for him. "Aren't the psychic injections 800 a piece, and the cold injection 600?" He'd come for lots of injections, in the past. "Of course I wouldn't mind the discount, Mister-" What was his name? "Alan, but I reckon I aught to pay you the full 2,200, right?" He didn't want to accidentally pay too little!
A moment of panic shot through Alan as the customer protested. He checked the price tags on the injections he was holding, and then at the other ones in the box- they had been mislabeled. "Ah! You're absolutely right, friend. Thank you for catching that! These injections were mislabeled, my mistake. You're absolutely right, that's 2,200 credits." He said, trying to not let his smile break. That was a close one- though he was surprised that the customer didn't keep quiet about such a steep discount.
Renathan was perhaps one of those good fellows that was too good for their own good. Anyone else would have walked away with that discount, high-stepping it. However, the mammalian was not that kind of a person. Plus, he had gotten paid to do this run, and it would have been a bigger cut for him if he didn't say anything. Still, Renathan was who he was, and no one was really around to judge him. "Sure, No problem! Here's the rest of it." He counted the rest of it out with Auburn trilling on his shoulder. He remembered buying both psychic and cold injections in the past, one for DoW, one for Auburn... He knew that the prices were a lot higher than what had been told to him. After he was done counting it out, he handed it all over. "There you are sir!" Poor Too-Good Ren, two-thousand and two hundred credits lighter.
Alan counted up the credits carefully, making sure that he didn't make TWO mistakes in one day. It was all there though, so he locked it away and handed over the injections. "Looks like we're all set. Here's your injections- be sure you choose who they go to carefully." He said, his slight smile never leaving his face. A transaction well made- even if it was a little bumpy to start with.

Silver: I'm so glad! I really want people to feel like they can 'do stuff' with their sentient pets, and Draconics especially! I'm excited to see what you guys come up with. :3

Morgan: I like the update overall.
Jan 17, 2021 17:51:56 GMT -6
Morgan: I'm legit so happy now that draconics will basically be able to communicate in draconic instead of being completely unable to communicate from birth unless classically trained or 7+ intelligence. It was so weird to try to do story breedings like that.

Jack: So for those of you not on the Discord, I would like to say I'm still around, just not as much. Had to quit my job to watch the kids, opened an Etsy shop, and I'm trying to just keep things rolling through my current bad depression.
