N’Mara looked down at her short dress, smiling at the feel of the gold coin jewelry brushing across her skin as she moved. Her smile faded a bit as she looked up at the small town she had entered. It was more dreary and dangerous feeling than the other faire areas she had been in thus far. She tilted her head back staring up at the tall tower and the light bursting from it up into the sky. After a while she lowered her gaze and tugging her dress straight she moved through the crowded streets.
There was quite a variety of shops and the insides were as magnificent as any she had seen in her exploring of the faire grounds. She had never seen anything on the scale that this faire was at. There were 14 large areas set up as small towns filled with many shops. A lot of different beings and creatures were wandering around or running shops or entertaining people. She smiled at a faun as she bounded past. At the edge of town in a small area surrounded by rock she came across the skeleton of a dragon. As she knelt to look closer she heard a growl from nearby and decided it would be a better idea to return to town.
A big statue stood in a clearing in the middle of town and she stopped to stare. There were spikes sticking up around it and its head had been knocked off and replaced with a wooden sign written on in red paint. She wasn’t sure what it said as she didn’t recognize the language. Hmm, curious. She debated asking someone about the statue’s history and story but was distracted by raised voices.
“What do you mean you won’t sell me any clothe?” A woman’s voice yelled angrily.
N’Mara drifted towards the voice, not knowing why but feeling drawn to it. She went down to the docks and saw a mermaid floating in front of a weavers cart. The mermaid and the shopkeeper continued to argue. As she got closer she understood that the mermaid didn’t have the right coin to buy the cloth and the shopkeeper did not want any of the items the mermaid had on her to trade. N’Mara stepped up next to the mermaid and laid her hand softly on her arm to get her attention.
The mermaid stopped mid-sentence and turned to her, a frown on her face.
“I would be happy to trade you those items for some coin. It has been a long time since my friend has been to the ocean and I know she would love them for gifts.” N’Mara smiled at the mermaid and pulled put a number of coins and held them out towards her.
The mermaid looked between her and the shopkeeper and blushing she nodded and forced a smile at her. She traded her the beautiful shells she held for the coins in N’Mara’s hand. She handed them to the shopkeeper, who frowned but gave the bolt of cloth to the mermaid and put the coins in her purse. N’Mara smiled at them both and waving turned and headed back into town. She put the shells in her bag as she walked.
