This was a shop that Rabbit had never visited before.
Aster's fishing equipment predated her activation, and he had never seen a particular need to expand upon it. He hadn't even had much use for it until recently, when he had taken up the hobby again. Rabbit supposed it made sense that, having picked it back up, he would find himself in need of more equipment for it, which must have been why she was here.
She had been given much fewer credits to spend this time around. Not every shop had a price point to compare to the Traveler's Emporium. For the sake of their finances, if nothing else, Rabbit judged this to be a good thing.
Walking into the store, she greeted the shopkeeper. "I am searching for one Pro Fishing Pole, and two pairs of Clog Boots," she said. "Would you be able to assist me with my request?"
Startled, Ka'shisk stared at the TROD for a moment. It... didn't make much sense, she was getting a little busier lately, but hey, she wanted to get some credits right? A pole and a couple sets of boots? Hmm, not too bad, for a TROD. "Sssure, one pole and two ssssetsss of clog bootsss, yesss?" she asked, gathering the items, "105 creditsss pleassse."
The shopkeeper seemed surprised to see Rabbit here. Perhaps this shop was not usually very busy. Rabbit was the only one present right now, though this wasn't enough evidence upon which to stake a conclusion. It may also be that the shopkeeper was not used to dealing with robots. Perhaps most of her customers preferred to come in person, the better to peruse the wares, try them out, and see whether each was a good fit for what they intended.
But Aster disliked coming into the city, and evidently he felt he knew what he wanted well enough to purchase it via a proxy. That was how their household handled most purchases, in fact. And most places seemed willing, if not always happy, to deal with Rabbit, so the system remained in place.
"Yes, that is correct," Rabbit said. She counted out the requisite amount that had been specified, and handed it over to the shopkeeper.
Ka'shisk took the credits as they were offered to her and put them away, then she handed the items over to the TROD. An odd machine, but a paying customer nonetheless. It wasn't every day one of Kapper's creations found their way into her shop - machines didn't often go fishing. "Pleasssure doing businessssss with you," Ka'shisk said, obviously done with this transaction, though not as bluntly as some shopkeepers.

Renathan: Reminds me of those spiders that wave limbs around with little fan-like parts on them that are multi-colored/patterned.
