What a day. Her eyes moved to the key he slid towards her. He seemed very serious about getting whatever it was he needed to do, done. She would love to ask, but it wasn’t her place. Even if she really really wanted to. Soon enough he stood up and bowed to her before leaving causing her to blink as he left. Slowly she slid down in the chair thinking everything through. She briefly wondered if she had made the right choice, if this was indeed her best line of action.
Rena found herself thinking through the day, she couldn’t believe it. How much was she going to embarrass herself in one day? There was the whole deal with Edmund and now where was Vladimir. She sighed, though that fight was entertaining it made her realize she wasn’t prepared. Not even, close. Her clothing was wrong, and her fighting was lacking. A long sigh escaped her lips once more. “She was right. I will perish like this.”
Rikka seemed to chime in with a dark growl “we can always improve, there is time.”
Vlad was gone for now, and she was desperate to fix her wardrobe issue. Slowly, she moved the towels around herself to make sure to conceal the more important parts of her body and cautiously ducked outside. The rain was a monster now, thunder cracked above causing lightning to streak from grey cloud to grey cloud. Standing under the overhang for a moment, she glanced around trying to see if any merchants were still open. Soon enough she noticed a merchant stand with a little makeshift tarp roof. Hopefully they would have something for her. Moving her way towards that cart, she quickly ducked under the tarp. Lifting her eyes to notice the merchant from before she couldn’t help but smile. “Oh hello again.”
Realizing the last time she was a bit better off on a money, she felt that she may be a bit out of luck. “I do not have another crest for you sadly, however, I do have actual money now.” Her voice was light however; she noticed his expression and chuckled. He didn’t need to talk; she could tell what he wanted to say. “Why yes, I am here for clothing. I’m looking for the basics as well as an armor piece or two.” She stated and noticed his odd look. “Oh, I suppose you could call me a bounty hunter now.”
The merchant seemed ecstatic by that response and began to dig around. He glanced up every so often as if checking to see what she needed. Soon enough he pulled out some clothes meant to go under armor as well as some armor pieces. He then pulled out pieces of armor and smiled before waiving his hand over all of it.
Rena watched carefully as he set things on the little counter before her. She noticed he didn’t try to sell her boots or gauntlets, which was good because she still had those. Moving her hand, she lifted the armor pieces one after another checking them over. They weren’t quite what she was used to, but it was much better than her current state. “How much?” she knew most armor was expensive, and she rarely paid with coin. There was a lot of bartering in previous purchases. She felt a silver coin wouldn’t get her much.
The merchant pulled out a silver coin, showcasing it with a smile. That didn’t seem right. Only one coin? Slowly she handed him the coin, expecting a trap but there was none. He stacked the items up and handed them to her.
With a confused look, she walked towards the tavern knowing that she would at least be able to change in the room Vlad had given her.
