Okay but you’re KIND OF flipping out here. This guy is waving a fucking SWORD in your face and acting like you’re supposed to be all calm and businesswomanly about this and to make matters worse you’re about to try to outsmart him or something.
You tell him okay, you are reaching into your bag to get the money. The money that you’re going to give to him. You put on your best kitten-eyes, trying to either distract him from your potion or make him feel sympathy. Heck, you’re kind of hoping for about any effect at all here.
Gharug doesn’t seem all that fazed by it. What’s that sticking out of your bag? Is that a potion of invisibility? Those are expensive. They also make you so hard to see.
