Rexus Rexus is sitting on the porch. Yes, it's terribly boring, having his morning cup of tea. He'd read a newspaper if there were one.. maybe some toast or a scone... just taking in the morning light, relaxing in a rocking chair. All looks quite normal except for the fresh bandages on his shoulder... looks like he ran into something like.. bullets.
Iris Lark Iris walks out on the porch, squinting against the sun as her mouth opens to yawn. "Morning." She murmurs, quietly before she spots the bandages. "So what happened here?" She asks, plopping down on a chair, reaching out to swipe his cup of tea to take a small sip.
Rexus Rexus hopes Iris likes honey lemon tea. "Scavenging accident.. I swear." he murmurs, "Someone else wanted it a bit more than I did apparently but.. I showed them." he says, squinting, "You know it's quite alright to find a seat on my lap in the morning." he says, waggling his eyebrows.
Iris Lark Iris laughs and she hands him back his tea, getting to her feet to get her kit. "Not while I'm working. Let me take care of that wound before it festers." She quips, pulling bandages and antibacterial salve from her bag. "I don't understand why people fight over scraps, now you're hurt. Tsk."
Rexus Rexus corrects, "More hurt... I'm still healing up from the siege, remember?" he murmurs as he sets his tea aside. Can't afford spillage when she's poking and stiching... he'd never hear the end of it. "How have things been round here lately? Been so busy I've barely checked in on things."
Iris Lark "Things have been okay, for the most part." Iris says, and after some work she's wrapping a bandage around Rexus's shoulder. "I've been working a lot. Keeping things going at the store." She smirks slightly and rolls her eyes. "It's become a thing where people just sell me things, rather than buy anything. I may need to let it go."
Rexus Rexus sighs, "I've noticed.. it's a buyer's market really... people are overflowing with junk they don't need but can't afford to buy things they do need... they just sell sell sell and never buy." he smiles, "May need to close up shop... or.. be a bit choosier? Is that a word? I mean keep a stock of course but... you don't need to have more weapons than the militia."
Iris Lark "I think I'm going to stop buying, and sell." Iris remarks, a slight grin on her face. "I'm not trying to go broke helping people, that would be silly." She pats the bandage softly. "How does that feel, better?"
Rexus Rexus gives the shoulder a turn, "Pretty good I think." he murmurs, leaning up to give the kiss on the cheek. "Good for you. Really you're the only shop in the whole place that's buying and... well.. economics really, if no one is buying your stock you'll just have a ton of stuff no one wants.. supply and demand... people will understand."
Iris Lark "Well I can always sell some things back to El Dorado, that loot for caps deal is still going on." Iris remarks, wrinkling her nose a bit. "I may look into that, because it seems like it would be a better idea. Sell some of the duplicates, and I'll make more than I would selling them at a discount."
Rexus Rexus smirks, "That's my plan.. no one's going to want to buy my old power armor... or salvaged power armor.. well maybe that but.... certainly the old suit can go.. and the scrap... and a few other bits... just... take it and go, i'll use the resources to buy what i needs."
Iris Lark "Well someone might buy them off of you, but there is no way you're going to get what you put out for it." Iris says, and she gets to her feet, walking over to the edge of the porch to look out at the neat rows of growing greens and vegetables. "What things do you need to buy still?"
Rexus Rexus hrms, "Well, I didn't put out much at all for it... so.. anything is a bonus but.... also to be fair there isn't really much to buy per se... maybe some more quantum caps? Unless I find a nice set of X-01 sets out there.. the one Lonestar sells is great but the price is prohibitive and the custom set I got from the girl in the saloon is too nice to make it worth it."
Iris Lark "Makes sense. I can't think of anything else I would need to buy at the moment." Iris turns around and grins at Rexus, and she makes her way over to retake her seat, pulling her feet up so that her legs are pressed against her chest. "If you save up though, I bet you'll find or be able to buy a really nice set of power armor eventually."
Rexus Rexus ehhhs, "I've got other plans.. really.. to be fair.... got to lighten a few things... maybe mod some things... it'll be certainly.. unique." he gives an evil grin. "But, I do... well.. have something for you in mind." he says, waggling his eyebrows, "Well.. I suppose one could argue in a roundabout way it's a gift for me but I digress..."
