"Hello, potion seller. I am going into battle, and I want your strongest potions."

The potion seller eyed the customer. Tall, strong, handsome. Burly stature, determined eyes, an immaculately square chin. The potion seller recognized him immediately as a wandering knight.

"My potions are too strong for you, traveller," he replied smoothly, smiling faintly.

The knight's brows furrowed. In a slightly sterner voice, he spoke, "Potion seller, I tell you I am going into battle, and I want only your strongest potions."

The potion seller smiled, almost mockingly. "You can't handle my potions. They're too strong for you."

Chuckling, the knight asked again. "Potion seller, listen to me. I want only your strongest potions."

"My strongest potions would kill you, traveler. You cannot handle my potions."

The knight snickered in disbelief. "Potion seller, enough of these games. I'm going into battle, and I need your strongest potions."

The seller's mouth widened in a maniacal grin as he gave his reply. "My strongest potions would kill you, traveller," he said mockingly. "You can't handle my strongest potions. You'd better go to a seller that sells weaker potions."

The knight frowned. "Potion seller!" he said, speaking sternly. "I'm telling you right now. I'm going into battle, and I need only your strongest potions."

The seller sneered. "You don't know what you ask, traveller. My strongest potions would kill a dragon, let alone a man!" His voice began rising in volume. "You need a seller that sells weaker potions, because my potions are too strong!"

On the verge of tears, the knight continued entreating the seller disbelievingly. "Potion seller, I'm telling you I need your strongest potions. I'm going into battle! I'm going to battle and I need your strongest potions!"

"YOU CAN'T HANDLE MY STRONGEST POTIONS!" roared the potion seller. "No one can! My strongest potions aren't fit for a beast, let alone a man!"

"Potion seller, what do I have to tell you to get your potions?" the knight pleaded, hysterical. "Why won't you trust me with your strongest potions, potion seller? I need them if I'm to be successful in battle!"

The potion seller shoved his face toward the knight, glaring fiercely. "I can't give you my strongest potions because my strongest potions are only for the strongest of beings and you are of the weakest!"

After his outburst, the knight took a deep breath. He composed himself, and the light of calm determination shone in his eyes once again.

"Well then, that's it, potion seller." he said calmly. "I'll go elsewhere. I'll go elsewhere for my potions."

"That's what you'd better do," the potion seller replied contemptuously.

"I'll go elsewhere for my potions and I'll never come back!" the knight continued.

"Good! You're not welcome here! My potions are only for the strongest and you clearly are not of the strongest you're clearly the weakest."

Face reddening with fury and hysteria once more, the knight spoke again. "You've had your say, potion seller, but I'll have mine. You're a rascal. You're a rascal with no respect for knights. No respect for anything... except your potions!" As he finished talking, the knight broke down into tears.

The potion seller leaned in close and whispered in the knight's ear.

"Why respect knights... when my potions can do anything that you can?"

Uh, yes I would also like to complain that my ego has been injured by this potion! Your careful attention to the lighting and your use of a drop shadow really sell both the dimensionality and the transparency of the liquid and feels like a scathing indictment of every missed extra credit assignment during the short time i had access to art instruction. 

Also those bubbles are everything I love about pixel art. Just beautiful to look at.
