Renathan went to the next store directly after getting out of the last one; he had been in the book shop, and now he was at the door of the Moonlit Loom. More and more errands, it seemed. Renathan had planned on going to several shops today anyway. Some heavy books were under his left arm as he pushed open the front door. Renathan glanced around; he'd never been here before. He wondered what the shopkeeper would be like of such a delicate place that seemed so nicely put together. Someone certainly had good ideas of what looked nice. Ah, but he was here to get two things, both for a young individual that didn't really have the time to go get their updated prescription glasses. "Good morning!" He called out, across the show room floor. He had the prescription on a piece of paper, written in thin cursive script. He had also been asked to pick up... A test tube necklace? What even was that?
List: Green Test Tube Necklace x1 (25) Black Glasses x1 (20)
Total: 45 Credits

Poor Tayara hadn't had many customers in such a long time she barely knew what to do with herself when the door chimed and someone stepped in. She looked up from her sewing, a simple dress she was making for herself to replace the one that was wearing out, and gave him a smile, wrinkles shining through as she beamed. "Hello there, how can I help you today?" she asked.
Renathan had never been here before, so he had never really met the shop-keeper. He was not surprised to see her, however, she was a distinguished individual. Her clothing was immaculate, as to be expected, and her face was wrinkled; belying her wisdom. Renathan lowered his antlers toward her, keeping his head bowed for a moment, before raising back up; his customary greeting. "Nice to meet you, miss..." He trailed off, she hadn't told him her name yet. She was sewing, what a good skill to have! He wondered if she made all of the things she sold here, or if she made some things, and sold others. "Yes ma'am, my name is Renathan. I'm here to pick up something for a young individual... A prescription of glasses with black frames? And a 'green test tube necklace." He came a bit closer, but stood at a respectful distance. "I have the prescription written down by the individual here." He held the paper out to where she could take it if she wanted, but also not in her face, since she had been working previously.
"Oh of course, I'm Tayara," she said, putting down her clothing and taking the piece of paper for the prescription. He was lucky they had this one in at the moment. She smiled and looked over the list, just two things, but that was fine. She wandered down one of the aisles and plucked a necklace from the shelf before she came back and set it on the counter. Then she took a pair of glasses frames and smiled at the young man again, "This is the necklace you wanted, it'll be a moment to put the lenses in the frames. Do look around to see if there's anything else you'd like to buy today." Giving a polite nod of the head, she went to the back of the store to put the lenses into the frames.
Renathan smiled beneath his mask, and nodded. "Miss Tayara, thank you." He was quite polite, wasn't he? And finally versed in the common language. He really had come a long way, like this. He had been a bit surprised to find out through proxy that a clothing store would even sell glasses for an individual prescription like that? But he was glad all the same. The individual he was running errands for this go around was a little... Ah, eccentric. He was used to running errands for folks, but this was the first time that it had been a lot of non-grocery-style errands. Usually he was making jewelry for errands, or picking up groceries for older folks. But this individual was a lot different. Almost like a kid, but they couldn't be that young, right? "Thank you! And certainly ma'am." He grinned again, glad that his pointed teeth were hidden behind the mask because sometimes humans were scared of that kind of thing. He did look around the shelves; all the things were really beautiful looking! He browsed quietly as he waited. He even found some of the things needed for leather working! He planned to go into leather working at some point, but he figured that he would come and get those things closer to time, he was still learning how to do that, after all.
"Ah, all finished," Tayara said, coming out from the back of the store a little bit later. She smiled at the young man and held the glasses up in a clear case so he could see them. They shined brightly as they were new, and she put them next to the necklace he had wanted as well. "Did you find anything else you'd like today?" came the question as she went to bag up the two items.
Renathan was pretty glad that he didn't have to wear glasses himself. Sure, he had to be worried about poisons and well, psychic critters, but Renathan didn't have to worry a lick about having to 'put his eyes on' in the morning! Renathan looked up quickly from the leather working bits and bobs, and wished that he had already been trained to do that. Soon, he told himself, soon. "Oh, that is wonderful!" He said, grinning beneath the mask. Renathan walked over to her, apologetic. "Sorry, not today. But someday, Miss Tayara, I'm going to come back for some leather-working implements! I don't know how to do it yet, but I'd love to start making barding someday..." That was his idea, anyway. "And you have very good stock here." He nodded. "How much do I owe you, Miss Tayara?" She was so polite and very professional, and the objects were very pretty... He had never seen the test-tube necklaces before, let alone a pair of glasses actually up close. He pulls out his pouch, ready to fetch the credits for the purchase for her.
Most shopkeepers learned to like him because he didn't tend to barter. He didn't think it completely fair in most instances.
Tayara smiled warmly, it had been a long time since someone had come into her shop, and a long time since someone had treated her so well, it was a nice gesture. "The total for today is 45 credits. I appreciate your praise! I look forward to seeing you again, young man," she told him with a smile, patting the spot where he could set the credits as she bagged up the two items in a small cloth bag. It was white with handles on it, and she made them herself just for the fun of it, it seemed.
Renathan was certainly being truthful about returning at some point, but he'd feel bad for picking up the extra things and then not using them... He'd done that previously before and he wished that he had waited. He felt like he had more of a need to do something if he withheld the good stuff until he got it done. "Yes ma'am!" He said kindly, and then pulled the 45 credits out of his pouch. Glasses were darn cheap! Something that was essentially a medical item being that cheap was just amazing to him, he was so glad about that, but really shocked nonetheless. He'd been given more than enough money for these trips, but he had figured that this prescription would be the most costly of all of the items. "Thank you so much! I can hardly wait to finish learning so that I can return to buy more from you." He grinned, and then placed the credits on the table right where she had placed down. Renathan was pleased to see more bags, and of course the case. He'd nearly forgotten that he was carrying a ton of books, too!
Twilight-Claw: Thanks for that piece of info Ren! <3 | But would it be allowed for the flavor of the rp if the berry wasn't filling enough for the Lotine?

Renathan: There is no need to double up on a fish and a magical berry (doesn't change the effect of the berry at all) in a lotine breeding.
Jun 1, 2020 6:02:21 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Does anyone know if it is possible to combine both a magical berry and a fish in a Lotine breeding? Or is you can only choose one of them? (right now writing a Lotine breeding)

Twilight-Claw: I am still interested in trading it for a green drake.

Ridelys: If you are still interested in a trade twilight, for your fidelity result, let me know.

Riku: In mine my crossbreed used foxfire to burn it - but then it used incendiary illusion, which was extra scary because my cross is a plant pet with thick fur. It used the distraction to escape. I’m proud of it, and it’s okay that I won’t finish this month.

Renathan: *But of course, the RNG was not having that. / In Morgan's story, the Nyssa was a real thing, so I wanted to have two different situations for the variety.
May 31, 2020 18:15:27 GMT -6
Renathan: Yeah, the 'finished the story but the RNGods are being a butt' thing is a rather unfortunate situation to be in. I had already decided that in Ren's story, the elderly woman had lied about the nyssa and just wanted someone to talk to*
May 31, 2020 18:14:49 GMT -6
Riku: That makes sense. I've considered that before. -nod- I hope your non-hxr life is going smoothly.

May 31, 2020 16:34:01 GMT -6
Riku: Note to haix, I believe you can post the new application form at the same time as the quitting form. Unless you are simply taking an overall break from the job system.

Fiera Ferella: even AT the gardens yet. XD It sucks when you've finished writing your story and haven't gotten a success, because then its like "well... now what?" XD
May 31, 2020 15:51:47 GMT -6
Fiera Ferella: ive found that when there's a quest that might take longer like this, its a good idea to try and space out the story beats to try and roll a success before i get to the meat of the story. XD Like, by the time i was 5 posts in my character wasn't
