> "Ah, yeah that would be hard...I can keep an eye out, at least? And let you know if I see any deals that might be worth your time later, or if you're better off shopping here. But I wouldn't be able to grab more than one, and even that would be tough."

>"Ah," says the dark-haired kappa, her voice full of understanding.
>"Excuse me?" come another voice, as a kappa with long hair and a long dress approaches your stand. "I understand you are taking orders outside of the village?"

>Oh, that's Yua, she specializes in watches and tends to keep to herself. Weirdly popular in a quiet way.
>Kind of. She has a polite noblewoman sort of aura.
>"Do you have a list of things you might have to share?" she says.

>The crepes seller has a line again, and the dark-haired kappa is currently cutting up more cucumbers for her next batch.
>You settle in to watch the Prismrivers, or at least one of their associates. A few minutes drift past before another person approaches your booth. A shorter, older human gentleman, dressed in simple clothing. You know him well, everyone in the village does. No one knows where he came from or why, he simply moved in one day and no one had to heart to stop him. Now he does courier work around town, and everyone thinks of him as a grandpa.
>"Pardon me," he says. "I understand you're doing deliveries out of town now?"
