Hi, how can I help you?
“Hello, sir. I need a bow, a dozen arrows, and a sword. How much would that be?” Keonna asked, hopeful for a low price.

Keonna knocked on a post of the stand. “Excuse me sir? Are you asleep?”
The Blacksmith yawned and jumped up from his position on the floor. “Whoops! Silly ole me. Guess the requests today had worn me out. What can I do for you? You probably asked before but of course I was asleep.”
“Uh, a bow, and a dozen arrows. How much?”
“A bow and a dozen arrows? Well, it will take some time for me to make it so come back in about an hour. It will cost 25 tolkens. Sound good?”
“Hmm, anyway to pay less? Like helping out?” Keonna offered.
“I’ll give it to you for 20 tolkens if you take my money, run over, and get me some bayberry jam from the baker.” The Blacksmith handed Keonna 5 tolkens. “Deal?”
“Hello? Sir? Are you finished with my weapons? I brought money…” Keonna jangled the 20 tolkens.
“Yep! I’m all finished here!” He passed over the weapons. “Brand new. Keep ’em nice!”
“Hello! I have your jam!” Keonna set the glass jar down on the wooden counter of the stand.
“Uh, sir? Are you still working on my arrows?”
“Thank you very much!” The Blacksmith took the jam.
kalen walked over to the blacksmith and said “hey there. I need three daggers and a short sword. how much would that be?”
“It will take me a bit to make them, but in total it will cost 27 tolkens.”
“That sounds good. Do I pay now, or after you make them?”
“You can pay for them after I make them!” The Blacksmith got to work.
“Alright,” Kalen said as he walked away
“Sir! Your daggers and short sword are ready.”
Kalen came back, took the weapons, and payed the blacksmith. “Thank you” he said.
Julia strode in, fingering her bow, but her eyes were dreamy and she was lost in thought.
“How can I help you?” The Blacksmith asked as he worked on making a dagger.
“Wh-what?” Julia shook her head. “How much would 20 arrows be?”
“20 arrows? Well, that will be 25 tolkens. And lucky for you, you don’t have to wait because I have extra arrows made!”
Julia counted her tokens. “I’ll take fifteen arrows instead, if that’s alright.”
Elle eyed the weapons and muttered to herself, “Well, I have got Felix…What else? Sword? Short sword… Dagger? Nah… Wait, no, maybe yes… Spear…Bow and arrows, definitely no…”
“How much would it cost for a small sword? I would like to buy one, please.”
“A small sword will cost you 12 tolkens. I’ll get to making it right now!” The Blacksmith winked.
“Thank you! Oh, and could you please check-” Elle took out her baton from a hidden back pocket, “-Felix, and tell me whether he is in a good condition?”
“Of course!” The Blacksmith took Felix carefully.
“Goody. I will be back to collect my things in a bit. Sound good?” Elle asked, but without waiting for a reply, she waved and headed towards where all the exotic creatures were kept.
“Mr Blacksmith, long time no see! How are you doing? Is the sword ready yet, and how is Felix?” Elle grinned.
“I’m doing great, what about you? In fact, your sword is ready! And Felix seems to be in great shape!” The Blacksmith handed Felix and the sword over.
“All is good. Ah, thank you, Mr Blacksmith!”
“By the way, do you know what kind of maths you do with a sword?” Elle asked in a solemn voice.
“Maths?” The Blacksmith echoed. “What do you mean?”
“With a sword, you do long division,” Elle winked and gave 12 tolkens to the Blacksmith.
“Bye, have a great day!”
“Hello! Could I possibly have a sword and a dagger? How much would that cost?”
“Hi! I’m glad you stopped by. A regular sword will cost you 15 tolkens and a dagger is 5 tolkens, so in total: 20 tolkens. It will take me a bit to make them though.”
“Um, hey.” Gwen shuffled over to the stand. “How much do you charge to sharpen weapons or upgrade them? I have six Chakris”
“It will be 10 tolkens to sharpen all your Chakris. I do have a little bit of a wait, so it might take longer.”
“Okay, sounds like a deal.” Gwen said brushing a finger over her precious Chakris. “Do you need me to come back with them later then? Or should I leave them with you and pick them up at whatever time you say?”
“Oh, in fact, I have them ready right now!”
“Okay, here ya go!” Gwen handed over her Chakris along with the money.
“Goodbye..” she whispered to her precious babies.
“Uh, I need a broadsword please. I have 20 tolkens.” Keonna asked. “Snd make it strong enough to fight a demon.”
Keonna rolled her eyes and took a deep breath. “SIR? ARE YOU AWAKE?”
Being a water mage, Cassie didn’t really NEED weapons, but she always felt more secure at least slightly armed, so she walked to the blacksmith and asked, ‘How much for two twin daggers?’
“Two twin daggers? That will be 10 tolkens. You are in luck because I have the daggers ready right now too!”
Cassie had been exhausted the entire day, and was too tired to try to haggle, and handed over the ten tolkens, “Here you are.” she said, eagerly anticipating her daggers.
“Have a great day!”
“Thank you, you too.” said Cassie, walking away happily.
Keonna sighed exasperatedly. She had come back the next day. “SIR? ARE? YOU? THERE?”
Keonna was done. She busted down the stand’s door and stepped inside. She snagged a Damascus-steel broadsword, a leather and silver sheath, and a golden quiver with a leather strap.
Keonna huffed and quickly walked away. She left one of her bread-lumps, though, and and her mind all was right.
Besides, she would just burn someone or thing if she was caught.
Keonna came back after a while and consideration and took all the arrows she saw. (Which was almost a hundred.) She left 5 tolkens in the now-empty spot, but only because the blacksmith had been kind.
But it was annoying to wait on him for so long.
