Shinwa points to the items he wants, and the ji-samurai visibly scoffs, earning him a raised eyebrow from the Shiba guardsman keeping watch over the ronin in the weaponry shop. The ji-samurai catches the hint and quickly composes himself, bowing to the ronin.
"I apologize, Samurai-sama. Such items are too valuable for even the wealthiest minor clan samurai, let alone a ronin. It was my error, Samurai-sama. I should never have brought out to demonstrate Great Clan items such as these."
Shinwa's jaw tightens slightly. "I think you'll find everything in order. Please." He held out his card.
The ji-samurai looked embarrassed on the ronin's behalf as he inserted the plastic item into the card reader. When nothing happened save a single soft chime, the merchant's eyes widened and he hastily returned the card. "My apologies, Samurai-sama. I had no idea. Please permit me to box these for you."
He placed the items in a sealed white box and passed the box to Shinwa, bowing deeply. "Please accept this gift as a gesture of our great respect," he offered, the words traditional and meaningless now the transaction is over.
Respect for the credit line, Shinwa thought sourly. But he bowed to make the proper respectfully meaningless gesture in return. "Your gift and this transaction honors me. I cannot refuse."
With that, Shinwa heads out of the shop, picks up a few more conventional items in a normal store, and then heads back up to return to the ship to begin assembling the new cabins.
