[Fox Hollow Slaves] That which rains down from above! (private)

Spring
Era XX pf

It was probably a slightly unusual but not a completely unheard of sight for a rather average looking woman to wander over in the direction of Fox Hollow slaves. It was a place that stunk of money after all, and one filled with those that could judge the wealth of a person at a mere glance. It was that aspect of the woman that was average, for her wealth while fine probably didn't match up to the expected prices of the merchandise she was about to see. It was an aspect most clearly seen from her clothes, as even now they were still slightly dust worn and held an image of age about them.

Though, if one did manage to drag their eyes away from her clothes for a moment, then they were probably in for a heart catching sight. The color of both her hair and eyes were unusual and eye-catching, while her appearance from her face to her body wasn't that bad either. To be honest though, it was probably the pride etched on her face and in her eyes that would be her most memorable feature.

Yes, pride; not arrogance.

So without hesitation she made to enter, her golden eyes looking over the room for a moment just before she made her way over towards one of the nearby couches. Once there she would place herself down upon it, reclining slightly as she waited for her refreshment and merchant.

Fox Hollow Slaves was not busy when Saya arrived, and a young woman approached her very soon after she sat down. She was blonde and plump, and wore a dress of muted purple raw silk, her hair held in an amethyst clasp.

"Serale!" the woman said cheerfully, "My name in Kendy, how can I be of service?"

Two men sat at a wide desk on the far side of the room, speaking to a teenaged girl with a tray of refreshments. In point of fact, the men were guards and they were delaying the refreshment girl until in an unobtrusive way until it was determined if the visitor was in fact a customer.

A kind smile would form on Saya's face as she was approached and greeted, her eyes meeting the woman's without bothering to look over the rest of her right form the start.
"My name is Saya." she would respond as she moved to stand once again, a hand eventually being extended in greeting once she had found her feet.
"I'm here to look over your wares if possible. I've heard that they are of high quality in both loyalty and skill, and unfortunately have a price tag to match." she would explain, her voice conveying that the last bit was a small jest.

Kendy made a small gesture of deprication.

"It is true are prices are not low. Our slaves are well bred, raised and trained, and this is not an inexpensive process. We have quite a few slaves for sale, perhaps it would be better if you explained what it is you're looking for. Men? Women? Children? Any skills you're looking for in particular? What is your price range? Are you looking for a single slave or a group of them?"

The girl approached now with a tray of tea and finger sandwiches which she sat down on a small table next to Saya.

Saya would nod in agreement with Kendy before leaning back slightly and thinking for a few moments. Without much delay though she apparently came to a conclusion. What she wanted after all wasn't anything fancy that required to much thought beyond what first came to mind.
"Hmm, perhaps two? An older skilled male for the first one. He should be able to carry out cooking, laundry, cleaning, clothing maintenance and shopping easily, quickly, without supervision and to a high standard. A general willingness to still learn new things and the talent to adapt to new situations would probably help as well, not to mention being cool headed under pressure."

Saya would choose to sample the tea once she had finished describing what she was looking for in her first purchase. It was mainly to allow Wendy a few seconds to absorb the information, while also wetting her throat so that she could continue onwards to describe the next.
"The second should probably be young. A girl would probably be preferred, and this one won't have as much expected of it skill wise when compared to the first. Basic knowledge of all the aspects I described above would be good, although the ability to learn and follow instructions would probably be the greatest aspect I would look for."

"As for price range, we should probably look across the range since this is a preliminary visit. Both your highest and your lowest with a look at your average as well?" She would then take another sip as she watched Wendy take in her requests, her eyes watching to see how seamlessly she moved from thought to thought.
"On a side note, I wouldn't mind including any of your product that may include a flaw of some kind. Average to above average looks are expected, however small physical handicaps such as blindness, muteness or deafness might aid in a purchase should any of your stock happen to suffer from them by chance. Personality issues may also not be a problem as long as I am informed about them beforehand."

Kendy brought a small notebook out of her pocket, but only glanced at it, mostly listening to Saya's words.

"Your requirements are actually quite basic," she said. "virtually all of our slaves can do all of those things. The top of the scale in this case will be slaves who are truly impressive cooks or tailors. All or our slaves are eager to learn and follow instructions, and none have odious personalities. Let me send out a few of our stock for you to examine."

Kendy disappeared into a back room, emerging a moment later with a girl of perhaps 14 ordinations and a man who looked to be in his late 20's. The man's hair was a light blonde, the girls stark white, and they both had large blue eyes. They followed Kendy three paces back, and stood next to each other as she approached Saya. Kendy waved forward the man, who advanced quickly to stand next to her.

"This is Tassit. He is a competent cook and cleaner, can mend clothing and also has some knowledge of carpentry and can perform minor household repairs. He can drive a wagon and take care of horses. He has been instructed, as have all our slaves, in how to be pleasing in the bedroom. If you have questions for him or wish to examine him, he awaits only your orders."

Tassit stood with eyes meekly angled downward, and made a small bow at his introduction. His seemed to be wearing a hopeful look.

Saya merely nodded in response to Kendy's assessment. Apparently she had what Saya wanted in large supply, which was in many ways fortunate for the would be slaver owner archer. The more of them they had after all, the more room there would be for eventual haggling.

Although, to be honest she already knew that most of her stock would be entirely outside her price range unless she found some way to acquire some crowns.

As Kendy left and returned though Saya's eye's would turn away from her entertainer and towards the entertainment, her gaze sizing up the two that had been brought before her. She apparently was paying attention to how well fed and healthy they appeared, although her gaze did try and stop for a few moments at their hands to see how well worn they were. Eventually though her gaze would have swept them from head to toe, and approving glint in her eyes.
"Tassit hmm." she would muse for a few moments once she had finished, her gaze slowly moving over towards the girl.
"And her?"

Tandy brought the girl forward with a small gesture of her hand.

"The girl is Suldren. She has had training the the domestic arts and has been learning to sing and play the harp. Her voice is quite nice, but she is not yet to the point that I would call skilled with her instrument."

The girl curtsied deeply, head bowed.

"I will be do my best to serve you mam, if you wish it."
