>>41562380>the little insignificant lives of little insignificant people meant insignificantly little to the one named Mial>the short and stocky golden-haired cat only barely tolerated these people who insisted on making themselves visitors into her world>what use did she have to bother daydreaming about their lives, or care about their silly "social customs"; her quest was of much greater importance than something as pathetic as that!>by the gods, how she longed to complete this harrowing exercise, and return to the mystical deserts and glistening oasis of her home in Raii-Kohfu
Tut-tut, Neffy!>she lightly chastised her mummified servant, tapping her fingertips over Nef's nose for emphasis
These are serious business discussions; not the time for such silliness!>she let out a snorty laugh
As if you would expect Me
to be satisfied with such peasanty
conditions of living for sale!>she took Nef's cheek, pinching it and jiggling it about
You can be so funny
Remind me to give you a bonus for making me laugh, will you, sweetie~?>clearing her throat, she let go of Nef to turn back to the cleric in front of her
Now, as I was saying!>she casually tossed a bag of gold onto the desk
I will raise my offer to one full sack of mani for this land, and if I may say, that is by far
the most generous offer you shall ever receive for such mediocre soil.>her tail gave a sudden flick, the aristocratic cat beginning to lose her patience
Were it not for the amount of sunlight it receives, I would not pay one
measly silver coin, I'll have you know!
I am practically giving away my money with this offer, but a woman does require her sunbaths, and one does not put a price on such vital elements of life.
So!>she snapped her fingers twice in quick succession
Chop, chop! I wish for construction to be started immediately!
I have already missed on hours
of valuable time I could have spent soaking my weary feet in water.>she paused, taking a moment to think>before turning to Nefrae with a snap of her fingers
Neffy, remind me: commission for a new feet-soaking tub later today.
The portrait on my current one is beginning to grow faint, so it's right about time I replace it.
Also remind me: the cost of the new tub will be deducted from your bonus.
I told you not to leave the old one exposed to the elements, so it's partially your fault we need a new one in the first place.
