Aye, flies are the likely 'killer' in this case.
Not too powerful to ghost you, but powerful enough to drain your hunger bar over a prolonged attack, resulting in you being ghosted.
I'd say check your logs, if you're still logged in during that, perhaps the log was still being updated? If so, you'll find out if anything other than pure hunger did you in.
To trade with NPC, ask, what do you buy/sell, then a list will come up with the goods that they deal with. If you ask how much does -insert item - cost, the NPC should tell you.
