“Put that back please.”
Ling did as Kun asked, because he’d asked nicely. “Can we get this?” he asked after, pointing at it.
Kun shook his head. “I’m sorry. We’re on a limited budget this time. Be patient, Ling, we’ll have dinner when we meet back up with the others.”
Ling nodded, contrite, and followed after Kun. Then a thought occurred to him. “Then we’re buying just… food?”
“And the other necessary travel supplies.”
Kun stopped and looked at Ling. Ling could have sworn a very pleased looked was there, but looking closer Kun looked as he always did, simply content. “I don’t think I consider that necessary travel supplies.”
Jin and Shui were going to be livid. Kun was the only one who could get away with this. Ling smiled. “Yeah!”
More for food.
