We’ve been through this already. You have no wizard beard! You don’t think it’s biologically possible for you to grow one either, at least without magic. It’s a catch-22.
You excitedly say hello to the nice man and explain that you have no money. But you wish you did, because his store is very nice and appears well-stocked! It is probably a lot of work running this store all by himself and you would be happy to help if he needed it. Did you mention you are broke? Sorry if you already mentioned that.
Also it is a shame his wonderful store lacks an adequate sign to match.
Is wrong with my sign?
Lelles says he was just joking. He didn’t mean to scare you. Please come back.
He knows his sign is not very good, he tells you. He’s been planning to replace it, and even bought a new blank sign. However, he doesn’t want to ruin this expensive new sign with his abysmal handwriting. He’s been hoping to run into someone who was willing to help out.
This is exciting! You should be excited. But your eyes are stuck on that damn bottle he left out in the open.
Your mouth feels dry. You really want some alcohol.
