Next time, don't hide your gold in a stupid barrel. Any old fool could come along and take it. I took your gold to the bank for safekeeping. That's what banks are for, you know. Didn't mother teach you anything?
I didn't want to lug the shield along, too, but it's not like anyone but you is going to use that old thing. As for your Onion, well, stashing that in the bank is just plain silly. And it's starting to smell.
