Title: Bartering
Prompt: Green

Anya started to count the take from today’s business. “In my day, we didn’t have these easy to carry little slips of paper. Economic centralization in the modern sense wasn’t a concept we knew. I mean, you could pay tributes, you had to pay tributes, to the marauding axe-wielding viking hordes but that was mostly whatever livestock or heavy bits of gold you had. Dowrys were just goats and land.”

“How many goats do you think ol’ Xander would go for?” Xander asked.

“You’d be a pig.” Anya answered, oblivious to the joke even when Willow started to snicker.

Hehe, loved this. I love how Anya is always so literal about everything and misses things like jokes, even when she unwittingly makes them. You did a great job capturing that. And her speech about currency and economics - spot on.
