Fanged had never been to this shop before. She hardly knew what it was. She only knew that they accepted trades for things that she couldn’t even fathom. Trading sounded like a lot of fun and she had collected a lot of items from the mansion that she didn’t quite know what to do with. The outside of the shop was certainly interesting in appearance and the inside didn’t disappoint. Fanged felt a little lost. She wandered around, taking in the various sights until she locked eyes with a type of creature she had never seen before. She was instantly intrigued, wanting to study the creature further. It seemed like a plant creature and she had been meaning to take up gardening. Perhaps this creature would be a good fit for her.
“Excuse me, I’m interested in this Lotine I believe it’s called? I have items from the mansion that I hope will interest you.” She spoke pleasantly, but her eyes were narrowed and calculating.
There was no spoken response from the strange hooded figure, but the figure's head tilted to the side as if to consider. You might not even see the hooded figure reach beneath the counter (if he even had) but they procured a looped rope to set atop the countertop. A gesture towards the delicate lotine; the rope to tie around the creature's neck upon leaving, if the trader agreed to the terms, and so the macabe-looking noose was representative of the creature in their trade. Another gesture to the shrewd woman before them, this time to the empty spot on the counter in front of him. One didn't need words for the meaning - what was being offered up in exchange?
The hooded trader was a little intimidating, but Fanged didn't feel any ill will coming from them. Perhaps they were just the reclusive type. Without a word, they got the necessary creature prepared for her and all that was left for her to do was to hand over the items that she was interested in trading.
"I've got some glass roses and paper lanterns that I would like to trade for the Lotine."
She felt a bit nervous at the interaction. She hadn't had the need to negotiate a trade in quite a while and she felt out of practice. She removed the items from her possession, laying them out on the counter like she figured she was supposed to. She forced herself to relax, glancing carefully at the Lotine that would hopefully soon be hers.
"I hope these are to your satisfaction. I spent a fair amount of time collecting these in the mansion." Fanged rather enjoyed the experience of exploring the mansion, but it could also be dangerous.
It might've felt like quite some time beneath the Collector's void gaze before they nodded, apparently in approval. Just like the rope, the items were sequestered away with a gesture of the cloaked hand that might've been as magical as it was a sleight of hand, but there were no hands to watch to discern which it was. The end of the 'noose' for the lotine was handed over, and with the trade finished, the Collector looked to lose all interest in the woman as they turned back to their unseen tinkering behind the counter. Though it didn't seem ouright malicious, the place took on an even less welcoming feel - best to get out, before the shrouded figure saw it fit to turn back around and see about it personally.
