This was an interesting shop, to be sure - if one could really call it a shop to begin with, which was debatable. He'd heard of it, and Rabbit had come by a few times, but he hadn't often had the chance to come by himself in person. The barter system was intriguing, if somewhat inconvenient, but the draw of magic crystals was, as always, too great for the likes of him to resist.
Rhys was with him, fluttering alongside him as he walked through the door. "I hear you have magic crystals in stock," Noa said. There was no need for niceties; they were a waste of time. Better to cut to the chase, and then he would be out of the trader's hair that much sooner. "And you're taking plants for them? Would you take these for one?" It felt like a strange offer for something so valuable, but he wasn't about to complain.
The trader did not speak, but gestures were enough, fortunately, to convey the meaning. Noa studied the trader and wondered if they were rendered mute by some affliction, or even by birth - if sign would work better here. But neither did the trader attempt it with him, and he wasn't really in the mood for conversation anyway. If the trader was content with the current arrangement, then far be it from Noa to challenge that.
He handed over the plants he had brought. It was a small price to pay for a magic crystal, even of an element that he wasn't necessarily focusing on right now. These things were rare enough in his own mining expeditions that he could hardly turn up the opportunity to buy one elsewhere if he could, at almost whatever price he could get.
At least it was plants, and not more gemstones that he was paying up this time.

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