Dialogue

With Wind Comes Glory Order

(Talk to Bennett after following him to With Wind Comes Glory)
Bennett: Marjorie!
Marjorie: Oh, hello, Bennett! I haven't seen you for a long time. I thought you were off adventuring in some faraway place that I've never heard of.
Bennett: Hehe, no, no, it's just I got myself into a tight spot out there. Ended up getting held up for quite a while...
Marjorie: Ahaha... what else is new? So, what are you looking to buy this time?
Bennett: Oh, I was just checking in to see if the stuff I ordered last time was ready. Thought I'd bring my friend along.
Marjorie: You mean "Herman's Custom Adventure Map"...
Bennett: That's right! An adventure map drawn personally be Herman, the great adventurer. It shows loads of recommended places for adventuring, and with his comments, too!
Marjorie: Well, it did arrive, but unfortunately the cart tipped over in a puddle on the way here...
Marjorie: Most of the goods were fine, but since the adventure map was a ink drawing, it's completely ruined...
Bennett: What... oh, shoot! That's such a shame!
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg You really are unlucky, Bennett...
Bennett: Aw, I'd been looking forward to that for so long... I was this close to getting my hands on it...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Poor Marjorie...
Marjorie: Yes, I am the one who has to bear the loss, after all...
Marjorie: (*sigh* Maybe I should reconsider whether I'm happy to accept orders from Bennett in the future...)
Bennett: Okay, well, do you have any Alchemist's Goggles?
Bennett: I've been thinking about replacing the old goggles on my head for a long time. I heard that there's a new type of goggles made specifically for alchemists!
Bennett: When you wear them, you can see all the elements, even the slightest traces of elemental energy!
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg That's quite useful.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I feel like I can do all of that already...
Marjorie: Oh... I'm afraid these "Alchemist Goggles" you refer to are just a rumor...
Marjorie: I talked to that alchemist, Timaeus... He told me there's no such thing.
Bennett: Ugh, are you kidding me? My hopes dashed, yet again...
Bennett: Well... how about some Slime Gel Gloves? They exist, right? I saw an adventurer using them once.
Bennett: No matter what the weather, they can grip onto rocks when climbing. I call them... non-slip gloves.
Marjorie: Those do exist...
Marjorie: Unfortunately, we sold out of them just yesterday. They are quite a popular product.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I don't think we're going to get anything here...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Let's head somewhere else...
Bennett: Haha... It's okay, no big deal! I'm pretty much used to coming home empty-handed when I go shopping.
Bennett: Don't let it bother you. Oh — hey, how about I treat you to a meal at Good Hunter?
Bennett: We've been hanging out for a while now, you must be getting hungry, right? Let's go!

Good Hunter's Opening Hours

(Talk to Bennett after following him to Good Hunter)
Bennett: Hi, Sara! Table for two, please!
Sara: Ah... I'm so sorry, I don't think we'll be able to serve you two today.
Bennett: Huh? How come? It doesn't seem really busy here.
Sara: Ahh... well... how can I put this, just before you two arrived, we received an order...
Sara: An entire delegation from Snezhnaya has come to stay at the Goth Grand Hotel, and they asked us to provide a meal service.
Sara: So, although you might not see many people here, the kitchen is in fact busier than it's every been.
Sara: *sigh* They really know how to rope people into doing things for them. If only they hadn't offered to pay so much...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Looks like we'll have to give up...
Bennett: Yeah, who'd have thought we'd have so much trouble just trying to get some food...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I'll bet it's those pesky Fatui again!
Bennett: Oh. I've actually never had any dealings with them...
Bennett: But I have heard that they're arrogant and aggressive.
Bennett: In which case, there probably isn't much we can do about it...
Bennett: Well... how 'bout we just head to Mondstadt General Goods? We can at least get some basic adventure supplies!
Bennett: What do you think? You're in right? Hehe, let's go.

General Goods' Special Offer

(Approach Mondstadt General Goods with Bennett)
Bennett: Huh, that's strange... the owner, Blanche, isn't here. Hmm... That's really rare.
Bennett: Let's go over there and see what that signs says
(Read the sign)
Mondstadt General Goods Order Board: Mondstadt General Goods Special Offer — 50% Off All Items!
(Talk to Bennett)
Bennett: Wow! Is this for real? A discount!?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg This store's generally not considered tight-fisted, is it?
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Don't most places have a sale every now and then?
Bennett: I mean, sure, but... not when I'm around!
Bennett: I've never had such good luck before!
Bennett: Heh, it must be because I'm with you! Wow, lucky folk really have it different.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg That's a bit of an exaggeration...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I'm glad I brought you luck.
Bennett: Hehe, you're so nice.
Bennett: Then again, any discount's a bit meaningless without Blanche being here.
Bennett: Shall we wait here for a while?
Bennett: When Blanche comes back, I'm gonna buy a bunch!
Bennett: After all, this is a rare opportunity, especially for someone like me...
A while later...
Bennett: *sigh* Blanche is taking quite a while...
Bennett: It must be an emergency. I feel like she hardly ever leaves the counter.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Let's wait a little longer...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I have a bad feeling about this...
Bennett: Really? Don't worry. If we managed to catch a sale, today's gotta be a good day!
Bennett: Patience is a virtue for adventurers, too! There's no rush!
A long while later...
Bennett: Do you think that... Blanche is in some kind of trouble?
Bennett: I'm getting a bit worried... The 50% discount is a big deal, but... compared to Blanche's safety, I mean...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg You are overthinking things...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Yeah, it's been too long...
Bennett: Hmm... It's probably just all this waiting around making my imagination run wild, I guess...
Bennett: Ugh... C'mon, snap out of it...
A very long while later
Bennett: ...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg ...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg ... ...
Bennett: I don't usually say this...
Bennett: But... do you think it's time we gave up...?
Bennett: Blanche probably won't be back today, right?
Bennett: I guess I overestimated my luck, haha...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg It's just a coincidence...
Bennett: That's right, I shouldn't let myself get down about it...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I have to say, I ran out of patience long ago... (-1 Heart)
Bennett: I'm sorry, I got so obsessed with the idea of that discount that I didn't stop to consider your feelings...
Blanche: Oh... are you... waiting for me?
Bennett: Blanche! We've been waiting for you for ages. You're finally back!
Bennett: I was getting worried about you... What happened? Did you run into some kind of trouble?
Blanche: Oh... Nothing like that. I was just sorting some things out at home. Thanks for your concern, though.
Blanche: But, why are you two waiting anyway? I posted a notice saying that we'd be closed today...
Bennett: Closed!?
Bennett: We didn't see a sign like that... And anyway, isn't it 50% off the whole store today? That's the whole reason we waited all this time.
Blanche: Uh, let me check...
Blanche: Hmm... that's weird. It looks like someone removed the closed sign. Or... maybe the wind blew it away?
Blanche: The half price notice you saw was for yesterday... Sorry about that.
Bennett: Oh...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg Cheer up, Bennett...
Bennett: Thanks... I'm fine. I should have seen this coming...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg This is so you, Bennett...
Bennett: I'm sorry... I should have seen this coming...
Bennett: So, so, sorry! I feel like I've done nothing but waste your time all day...
Bennett: No matter what I do, I really can't shake my bad luck...
Bennett: *sigh* It's getting a bit late. I don't think you can accomplish anything if you keep on hanging out with me...
Bennett: So... let's part ways for now, and maybe next time it'll be different...
Bennett: ...That is, if you still wanna hang out with me next time... heh....
