Chapter 88: Getting to Know People is Always Harder When there’s Extra Pressure to Do it.
“Then, Safr, I’ll buy this sword off of you, and you can have my backup.”
Eeeh… so easily?
What just happened?
Let’s see… I was forging a sword for an inexperienced adventurer (that I wasn’t too thrilled about doing), but it turned out to be more work (and expenses) than that kid thought it would be, and then an older adventurer walked up to the inexperienced adventurer and conned him.
Seriously, that’s what just happened.
With a “You know, the blade’s not too bad, but…” and “You still need to pay for a grip and hilt” and the like, Gurtis just managed to get a steel sword, almost master-work quality, traded for his backup weapon.
Maa, I guess, in the end the sword is going to be used by someone who appreciates it better, so I can’t complain.
