    -Enters the door a large pack slung over his shoulder. He gives the shop a look-

    I hear you are in need of an...assistant. I assure you, my skills are top notch.

    * enters shop, rudely pushing past Alchemist *

    Leeches! For the love of the gods, do you sell leeches? I'm in dire need of a bleeding!

    Excuse me, guests, I was... somewhere else, a scary place, called... Real life o_O

    So for you, Kakashi, you may want to buy the strongest tranquilizer I have... 2 drops pure knock a person out for one week. But be careful: If you stretch the drops with water, they get more powerful. One glass of water might knock one person out for a month and if there would be an ocean filled with normal water, you might even kill the drinkers.
    Thankfully, there is no such amount of water.
    One bottle containing 20 drops is worth 1009 gold coins and two pence.

    For you, musketeer, I have leeches. They're pretty cheap though. One of them I sell for 5 gold coins. They do not carry any diseases, they're quite safe.
    Should I put them into a special bag for you, sir?

    Ahh, Alchemist, you want to be the shop assistant... So which qualifications can you exhibit? Do you have experience in serving the customers? And in brewing the potions we sell?
    Let's talk a bit.

    * frowns *

    Hmm, seems a touch expensive for leeches. Still, needs must and all that. Some dastardly knave inserted a Kerolian Desert Mite in my britches while I slept off a hangover, and now my buttocks have swollen to twice their size.

    * turns around to display offending body part, then turns back and hands over money *

    Well, I no longer have thumbs as I did when human..but I was really keen with all sorts of potions back then. Though...-thinks-

    Aha!

    -the stone on his head flashes. beakers and ingredients levitate and begin brewing themselves-

    How's that?

    I'm also really good at finding rare ingredients ^_^

    *gaze follows musketeer* oooo kay

    Alch, that sounds pretty good. I am usually using my human form though, when doing this business, here. That seems to be more apropriate. There is a potion for changing forms, or a spell, if you want to learn that.
    But I don't want to fore you to do anything so, let me consider this for a moment...

    You're the new shop assistant! Take a look around and begin to make yourself familiar with all those shelves and bottles and flasks and stuff.
    If you want to, you can fill up the ingredient stock up again... and find new ingredients for new potions :D

    -begins roaming about the shop, sniffing various ingredients-

    I think I will stay this form for now. if things get to bad I will attempt to change.
    hmm..this jar seems to be low..

    you can have it if you want.
    No, we have to care a bit about the decoration.
    *searches for old dust*
    Here, grab a box as well, I always save the old dust for days like this one.

    *opens the box and blows the dust carefully into the air and onto the flasks and bottles*
    This is, after all, the OLD pharmacy, so, the atmosphere has to be right.

    *takes a pretty dusty flask out of one of the shelves*
    It's fluid garlic butter. If you stretch it with butter and take a bath in it, you'll feel fully alive and ready for everything.
    Is it that, that you searched, sir?

    ah, it's quite cheap *checks to make sure*
    yeah, only 10 golden pennies, if you like sir.
    Should I wrap it as a present?

    Gah! The onion left? We could have used him in a potion. Talking onions are rare ingredients.

    *From outside* Onionist! There's laws against this kind of discrimination!
