「If you have any requests, you can always ask them from me.」
「Well, I was just around and thought I would come here for a visit.」
The uncle kept a modest attitude around the man.
「Well then, let’s go into the interior.
Allow me to guide you.」
I guess there is a reception room at the back, he must be an important person.
You haven’t even finished serving me and you’re already leaving?! Is what I wanted to say but I kept my mouth shut.
The business world is also about the survival of the fittest.
It’s logical that the strong is given a higher priority.
Even if you take into consideration that there are manners and etiquette to follow, this man was probably someone valuable enough to disregard those type of things.
Against someone that seemed this dangerous, there is no way in hell I’m going to tell him “Hey why don’t you go wait in line for your turn!”.
I just observed at a level that wouldn’t be considered impolite.
「No, I don’t mind if we do it here.」
「In order to give Telmano-sama a proper welcome, this may not be sufficient…..」
「Isn’t this the counter where you purchase potions? I came to sell potions today.
Do you have a problem with that?」
「Y-Yes of course not, in that case please come over here.」
The uncle encourages the man to sit on a chair.
(As expected of the clever uncle.)
I’m impressed with this uncle’s method of handling things.
First, he recommends the important person to follow him into a private room.
The moment he got refused, He recommends the room one more time but when he gets turned down again, he adapts and accepts the other person’s will.
(Recommend twice and then take a step back.
This is definitely one of the “by the book methods” of dealing with a customer who has a high position in society.)
For these types of people, if you were to immediately adhere to their wishes, they will instead think that you are weak and look down on you as if you were a joke.
If you don’t listen to them for a third time, they may get angry and say “Aren’t you going to listen to me?!”.
This is quite the difficult balancing act.
「T-Then, I will have a look at the potions that Telmano-sama has made.」
Hearing the uncles voice, the man sends a signal to a person standing behind him.
I wonder if that’s his disciple or some sort of bag holder.
The man politely places the long white box made of wood on top of the counter.
「Please check it.」
Saying this, he smiles with an air of superiority.
The contents are probably important right?
The uncle opens the lid of the box timidly.
A pale red light leaks from the gaps of the box.
The uncle opens his mouth half wide and looks at the potion.
Not just the uncle, but even the other staff and guests of the store quickly gathered around to intently see what was inside.
Naturally, I was one of those people.
Seeing everyone so impressed by the sight, the arrogant man seemed to be very proud of himself.
Please allow me to take a look.」
The uncle takes out his monocle.
Is that perhaps a magical tool? When he chanted something out, the frame of the monocle glowed lightly.
He wore it on his right eye and also used white gloves taking the potion gently into his hand.
「This is without a doubt a…..
C rank potion.」
A sigh of exhilaration leaks out from the surrounding people.
It’s true, judging from the light being emitted by the potion, that is probably a cure injury potion (C).
I somehow remember.
The arrogant man shows a triumphant look.
「So, how much will you pay for it?」
The uncle takes out various documents in order calculate the price.
Speaking of which, the prices on the list only went as far as E rank potions.
I am also very interested in these prices.
Now then, how much will it sell for?
The uncle, proposed the amount of money he would purchase it for.
「It will come to 200 gold coins.」
The surroundings become very rowdy.
I also gasp.
(The price is 2000 times more expensive than an F rank cure disease potion?!!)
My eyes are open widely and show a completely surprised expression as I look towards the arrogant man.
Seeing my face and the surrounding people react like this seems to have made the man extremely happy.
The man received all the respect and envy of the staff and guests and feeling satisfied he went home in a good mood.
The payment was of course made to his guild card.
「Excuse me for my behavior a little while ago.」
The uncle returns in front of me again.
It’s likely that he was apologizing for prioritizing that man over myself.
Well, isn’t he polite.
「No, don’t worry about it.
Rather, I’m quite glad that I got to see such a thing.」
Hearing my answer, the man nods as if to say “That’s quite true”.
「C ranking potions are at a legendary class isn’t it?」
I exaggerate a little.
I don’t think that it would be at a legendary class at C rank but I didn’t want to risk sounding uninformed after seeing the reaction of the crowd moments ago.
「No no, we can’t really call it a legendary potion, but make no mistake that it is something we rarely get to see.」
The uncle smiles bitterly.
By the way, I changed the topic.
「I came from Land Barn where D rank potions are rarely sold so I didn’t deal with it.
Is it the same here in the capital?」
I asked what I wanted to hear.
I wanted to know if I could sell my D rank potions.
「No, a D rank potion is expensive but it’s not really that rare.
Even at this guild, we are distributing a certain amount.」
Saying this, he showed me the purchase price list of a D rank potion.
Cure injury potion (D) sells for 10 gold coins, cure disease potion (D) sells for 20 gold coins and cure status abnormality potions (D) sell for 15 gold coins.
It’s not bad, this is not bad at all.
No, in fact this is rather nice, it’s amazing.
If I put one of each kind, then my income would be 45 gold coins already.
Well, I could just sell the cure disease potion which sells for the highest, but it’s about my preference to be more balanced.
I am not really pressed for money right now, so I don’t want to save more than I needed to.
But since I did arrive at the capital city, I would like to have a certain amount of money to play around with.
I make a schedule for tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, in order to come back here and sell one of each kind of the D rank potions.
Afterwards I did my usual thing and asked to be recommended to a hotel before leaving the guild.
