Tales from Podex: A Hare-Raising Exchange

It was a calm April day so far at Podex. Between busy moments, the tellers would talk about various things. April Fools Day and Easter were a while ago and talked about some, notably the "Easter Town" exhibit, but not a lot. What got more discussion was the decision from above not to hold an official Gridwide anniversary event, and the Fantasy Faire late in the month.

It was during one moment of this discussion that a figure walked in. With his long ears, carrot in the mouth, and bushy tail, he was recognizable as a kani or anthro rabbit. But this one wasn't dressed up for Easter. He had on a set of chainmail armor, with a warhammer on his back.

"Um," one clerk spoke up a bit worried, "This isn't a hold-up, is it?"

"Huh? Oh no-no!" spoke the visitor, "I was at the Fantasy Faire earlier. Do I need to leave the hammer outside?"

"It's fine as long as you're wearing it and not swinging it. Sorry about that. What can we do for you?"

"Well, I need a few Lindens to help my Relay team meet it's goal at tonight's event, and I need enough left over to meet my tier. Do you accept Euros?"

"We most certainly do." The long eared visitor and the teller soon worked out a deal and the Lindens were exchanged for the armored guy's Euros.

"Hope all goes well at the Faire," the teller told him.

"Thank you," the armored kani told him, "Just don't expect any late Easter eggs. Thanks to these long ears, people have been making jokes all month."

"Oh, sorry about that."

"Oh well, it's gotten me lots of free chocolate."

They all had a good chuckle, and the visitor went on his way.

The Podex Exchange is located at Moonbeam (26, 223, 34), with a website at . Jacek Shuftan is the CEO.
