Shiro grumbled somewhere on the ship when we docked after nightfall and let a hooded stranger in.
“Do you have what I asked for?” the stranger asked Myrial.
As an answer, Myrial opened the coffer. “Here they are.”
The stranger inspected the art supplies for a while. “Excellent. These will make excellent nightly paintings.”
“Why do you want to paint at night? It’s so dark it’s hard to see,” Tymon asked.
The stranger turned to him and grinned, allowing sharp teeth to show from under the hood. “Some activities are better done without prying eyes.”
Tymon nodded and everyone left it at that. We got paid for finishing the haul and left as soon as we could.
I sincerely hope that I will have to never meet that guy again.
