Scarab flashed Drex a bright smile and a nod. "Indeed!" she confirmed.

And waited, lifting a smooth brow.

"Oh, nice!"

He turned towards the door and opened it, ducking down and stepping straight in and leaving the door open for Scarab.

"Oh, it smells great in here!" Drex said from within.

...Huh.

Didn't he know he was supposed to open it for her?

Stunned as Drex just went inside and left her, Scarab frowned, straightened her shoulders, and walked in after him as the door began to swing shut. It must be a cultural difference. She would have to keep her patience and correct him later, that was all.

Stepping up beside him, she nodded. "It does, I suppose, if you enjoy ale. I prefer wine, myself. Unfortunately that means I'm not too familiar with the brews here, or the difference between them, but I'm certain the brewmaster can help you!"

"Well, I hope he's got a lot of whatever I'm smelling," Drex said, still oblivious to the faux pas he committed. He turned to Scarab, smiling brightly.

"I've never had human ale."

"It's likely weaker than what you're used to," Scarab said. "But the men here claim it's delicious."

She wrinkled her nose. It always just tasted like piss to her.

Looking around the place, she waved as she caught sight of who she assumed was the brewmaster as he sealed up a keg. "Hello! What brew is that? The strong one smelling up this place?"

Yeah, she wasn't really sure how to go about asking for it.

"This brew? Oh, it's--"

The brewmaster cut off once he caught sight of Drex. He seemed almost intimidated, but then Drex spoke up.

"This ale smells magnificient! How much is it?" the young Ogre said. The brewmaster managed to shake off his incredulity and approached the two.

"This is our newest stuff," he said, motioning to a rack of barrels.

"It doesn't come cheap, it's Essyrni grown."

Drex looked a little disappointed as he reached for his coin purse.

"Oh. All I've got is ten of these," Drex said, and from that purse he pulled out a thick gold coin that was easily larger than a man's fist. The brewmaster's eyes turned to saucers, and he looked to Scarab for a few moments, as if wanting to double check that this was real.

"Ten of those'll get you five barrels," he said, eyes glued to the massive coin.

The brewmaster wasn't the only one whose eyes bulged. Scarab's eyes rounded at the sight of those gold coins, and the flippant way Drex flashed them! And the nonchalant way he said they were all he had. As though that was some meager amount! But then again, his people seemed to have gems pouring out their ears, so maybe they just didn't value them the same way her people did?

The brewmaster turned his incredulous gaze on her, and Scarab snapped out of her shock and cleared her throat and rolled her shoulders back, straightening up imperiously.

"Well then? What are you waiting for? Prepare the barrels," she said, and waved her hand to indicate he should hop to it.

The man immediately got to preparing the barrels, and Drex shrugged.

"I'm guessing the coins are smaller here?" he said, and he shot her a knowing smirk. He'd seen human coins before, and the young ogre did like to play a good prank every once in a while.

"You should've seen the butcher when our caravan paid him a visit. Thought Hakeshna herself had blessed him with fortune."

Oh, he knew exactly what he'd done. That smirk was telling.

"They are...much smaller, yes. I'm surprised the man didn't have a heart attack," she said, as the brewmaster soon returned with a small crew, rolling the barrels out to them.

"A peasant could live off a single one of those for a year. Probably." She pursed her lips thoughtfully. Actually, she had no idea what the value would be top a peasant. A great amount, surely, but she had no real concept of what such a life was like, and thus no point of reference to make a comparison.

Drex nodded along at her words. If she didn't know anything about life as a peasant in Essyrn, then Drex sure as hell didn't have a ghost of an idea either, so he just took her word for it.

He glanced around a bit, a bored expression settling on his face as he waited for the barrels to be unloaded before he gave her a gentle nudge (he didn't want to bowl her over!) and he started walking towards the aisles of barrels in the warehouse, taken by a bit of curiosity.

"I'm glad to have you come with us. It'd be nice to have a new face around, even if it's for a little bit."

"You don't get many visitors?" Scarab asked as she followed a pace behind him, giving the workers space to load up.

"Not even during your festival thing?"

The workers motioned over at the two of them, signaling they were done, and Scarab tapped Drex's arm. "Looks like we're set to go."

"Not really," Drex said. It took him a few moments to register that Scarab was tapping his arm, and he glanced over towards the workers with a start.

"We live, er, pretty high up in the mountains. Our trails are harsh to the smaller folk as well. We only hear about the outside from the few visitors we do get."

As he spoke, he picked up three of the barrels by wrapping his arms around them, and lifted them up onto the ground as if it was just a moderate feat of strength for him to carry three barrels filled with ale.

"I got these. My beast's outside," he said to the workers, and he started to walk to the exit.

"Anyways, not a lot of folk got the stomach to hike up to one of the villages just to trade. It's a dangerous trip up if you're not prepared."
