Every now and then, Nina needed to make some tough decisions about the Zu. No matter what she did, there just wasn't space for every Orbaru in the whole city to live there. Sometimes she had to make some trades and bring in new blood - otherwise, they would all be related. Luckily for her, Turner was always willing to offer a trade. This time she had a stock of the smaller, less fluffy Orbaru that she was hoping to exchange for a couple of potions. The Zu had recently expanded the pen they kept the mutants in, so she was hoping to fill the space with a couple more.
"Ah, hello," she said with a friendly wave as soon as she entered the store. "I have some Orbaru I am hoping to trade if that is okay?" This wasn't her first time doing it, so she assumed it would be fine, but she didn't want to be too presumptuous.
Turner used to think it was weird when robots came into his shop, but he had gotten used to it after a while. When he heard someone come into the shop, he took his gloves off and rested them against the edge of the pot he was tending to.
"Right, right," he said nodding along with her suggestion of a trade. "I am happy to trade, let's see what you got there." He looked over what she had to offer for a second, then said, "The Orbaru for sale are over this way."
If Nina could smile, she would have, but instead, she just nodded cheerfully. She was pleased that Turner was willing to accept a trade, not that she expected anything different. "I have two purple, two orange, one brown, four venom, two terran, and two sherbert to offer. That's 9 exotic and 4 common colors," she concluded. She hoped that would help him figure out the offer without having to go around counting them himself.
Nina mostly wanted to trade for a few potions, but when he mentioned the Orbaru he had for sale, she couldn't help but to go take a look. There were so many! She wanted to bring them all home, but she knew better than that. She was here to reduce the number of Orbaru taking up space in the Zu, not to grab a ton more to haul back with her. Still, she couldn't resist the bright pink eyes and long fluffy tail of one particular little Silky female. She always had a soft spot for the Albino ones.
"Okay, I am ready," she said. "I would like to take this Silky female, five Orbaru growth potions, two Orbaru v2 potions, one Orbaru Mystery potion, and a root pair. I also have credits to add to my offer, if needed." She knew the potions were expensive, so she probably owed him a fair chunk of credits even with her trades.
Start a new chapter, find what I'm after. It's changing every day. The change of a season is enough of a reason to want to get away.
"Alright," Turner said, glancing over at the Orbaru she had to offer while she listed them off. There were a few, so he decided to go over to the counter and grab a notepad to write down all the values. When she finally decided and listed what she wanted in exchange, he made a few more notes and came to the final number. "For the potions, a root pair, and one offspring, minus the price of your trade, the total is 1080 credits."
