Five Copper Coins
“No matter how many timesss you count our money, A-Ve-Ry, we ssstill only have 5 coppersss, I need to sssell my ring for usss to eat,” she sighed.
“No, you aren’t selling your ring, I’ll think of something we can do to make money. It might even be legal,” he winked.
“You will do no sssuch thing!” looking shocked.
“I know, Wikapi, I was just trying to be funny,” he smiled. Even after several years together, he could still catch her occasionally with his humor. “You have any ideas?”
“We both are very limited in what we know how to do,” looking at the coins in her hand again.
“Well, let’s see what we do know. You and I both know sword play, we could stage mock fights with each other,” looking at the floor.
“Zheng taught me to make Ice Fire, but I don’t think anyone will pay usss for that,” frowning, “I will sssell my ring then.”
