Zought it might help. Somedimes beople can't hunderstand me.” He shrugged. Even after working in London for four years, his accent was still pretty strong and his command of English was still as bad as the day he met his friend Jory and thought Hufflepuff was a adverb for a nice person.

He held out his list, hoping the shopkeep could help him.
Text Cut: Shopping list
  • Aconite Fluid
  • Gurdyroot
  • Belladonna
  • Lavendel
  • Dittany
  • Octopus Powder & Ink
  • grüne Minze
  • Lionfish Spines
  • Silverinkpot.

Gideon paid careful attention to the man’s tone as well as his words to make sure he caught the gist even through the thick German accent he had. It reminded his of his grandfather who even after years abroad in Portugal, still retained the strong tongue of his Scottish ancestors. “Aye, that I certainly assist you with,” the potioner assured him, accepting the offered list with an approving nod. Made just a little less work for him in deciphering what to gather. His eyes gracing the parchment page as he wordlessly summoned a basket to make the gathering easier.

“The aconite, belladonna, dittany and lionfish spines are easy enough,” he replied, moving into the shelves to gather said items from stock and adding them to the basket along the way. The dittany being something he had so recently prepared. “I suppose the lavendel is meant to be lavender?” Gideon asked, turning to show the purple blooms in question to his customer before catching himself. Oh well. “Unfortunately, I do not stock any octopus powder or ink…and must admit I am unaware as to what grune minze is.” It didn’t readily look even as if it was something he was familiar with just spelled wrong.
