The sullen man splits a toothy grin and looks Delion up and down. He chuckles, more to himself than anyone else, and then quickly swipes across his nose with one beefy, fat thumb. He turns his head to the side and spits a long trail of saliva onto the Market Hall floor then yells loud enough for Delion to hear him.
"Playing games with my money gets real serious, real fast."
Setting his attention back onto the rest of the room he cups his big hands together and hollars through them at the crowd.
"The Aes Sedai said 6000 gold crowns, and 6000 gold crowns is the current bid."
He breathes in deep and then bellows, "6000 crowns going once!"
