This follows from last week’s post. (The love potion in question ate away at some stones.)
(A bit more background about this story. It was started to go along with a D20tabletop RPG that a friend was creating. I have no idea where his project currently stands; I should probably ask him.)
“Now, now. What’s Tuiee going to say when he sees what his love potion does, hm?”
Chollee snorted. “As if I care what that fat no-talent shopkeeper has to say!”
“Ooooh… he’s going to fire you!”
She shrugged. “He fires me every week.”
“And you keep working.”
“He pays well. And he needs me.”
The truth was, Tuiee had always been very good to her, and she truly did love the old man, even though she seriously doubted his stories of being a grand wizard.
“Keep on believing it,” Ozell said. “Things are going to change and you’ll need him someday.”

I enjoyed the complicated relationship between Chollee and Tuiee.
Enjoyed the dialog and the picture it paints! Great snippet…
An intriguing setup for a story.
Maybe he is a grand wizard, just a bit incognito…. Being fired every week must be a bit stressful.
It sounds as if she and the shopkeeper have an understanding. He fires her, he hires her back. It’s a bit of a game they’ve come to play.
Nice conversation and the info we get from it.
Intriguing snippet, and I love the banter betwen the characters.
Great banter. I love how nonchalant he is about being fired every week. lol
