“Sir, there are three of you . Don’t you need three rooms?” asked someone, rubbing his palms with a grin .
To be fair, the three of them could even stay in one room . The best ones were luxury suites so they could even fit 6 people inside .
These people only wanted Ye Lang’s one thousand gold coins . It was very tempting indeed!
“Nope!” Ye Lang proceeded to ignore these people and let the staff bring him up . Even if they were rooms with single beds, he’d still only want 2 rooms .
Obviously, he wasn’t sleeping in one with Edward, but Little Xin!
In Edward’s words, Ye Lang and Little Xin are as close as each other’s shadows . Even a royal’s lady-in-waiting wouldn’t be this close .
They walked together, took baths together, even went to the toilet together!
If only Edward looked a little closer . Perhaps he’d have noticed she was different from a regular human . She never ate, and he hadn’t seen her do anything a human being would do, i . e . excrete…
Then again, these were a girl’s secrets . No one would see a girl doing ‘it’, so it wasn’t a surprise Edward didn’t suspect .
What Edward found the most peculiar was that Little Xin never spoke . As if she was mute . He had asked Ye Lang about it but Ye Lang merely said no without further elaboration .
Ye Lang and Edward each took a room without much discussion, then entered . The bellboy tagged close to Ye Lang, leaving the others to follow Edward .
He thought Ye Lang’s tip would definitely be a lot more than Edward’s .
He was very confident because Edward had just entered his room and tipped his bellboy a silver coin . Not much .
Only a silver coin? Thank goodness I wasn’t there . This generous man will definitely give me a gold coin . Or much more!
His eyes glinted in delight as he locked eyes with his colleagues . The boy had brought Ye Lang The Generous to his room . He opened the door, gesturing for Ye Lang to enter with a grin .
Ye Lang didn’t care for things like that . He entered, then turned to the boy, “Quickly get the kitchen to start serving the food . I’ll take a shower now!”
When he finished, Ye Lang closed the door . The boy was stunned . He didn’t expect Ye Lang would give him nothing .
“He must be paying after the food arrives! I’ll get the kitchen to hurry up…” He ran to the kitchen at top speed . Ye Lang must have been waiting to tip everything together . When he served later, he’d definitely get a huge reward .
He hurried the chefs in the kitchen, at the same time instructing them to make everything better . He had to serve the best to Ye Lang . That was how he could get the largest reward .
In the room, Ye Lang was taking a bath with Little Xin inside . He was of course, naked . Ye Lang had recently been getting Little Xin to massage his back . It felt so good .
Did he have any odd feelings towards Little Xin’s body? No, because Little Xin was a reanimated spirit made by him . He felt nothing .
Ye Lang didn’t have any fetish for objects . She was an animated spirit, he couldn’t pretend she was a real person!
Then again, Ye Lang was naturally a little innocent and slow . He wouldn’t have thought of treating Little Xin like a blow-up doll…
“This is not a bad hotel at all! Even its water heaters have so many custom functions! They sure are willing to spend on their customers!” praised Ye Lang after his shower .
Some of the hotels with hot water he’d stayed in only had public baths or a hot water pipe that ran into only the more expensive rooms .
In the Jewel Moon Palace, every bathroom had its own small water heater . These heaters functioned alchemically, each requiring a large amount of magical energy .
In terms of daily life, alchemy has brought convenience to many people across the mainland, especially the aristocrats . Their lives were probably as comfortable as people in this modern era .
Ye Lang had recently been very interested in alchemy for weaponry and defence . As for its usage in daily life, he didn’t know much about it . Alchemy was a broad field, it was impossible for him to be an expert in everything .
Zhen Xiaoyan was more proficient in daily alchemy . It wasn’t a surprise anyway . Her hobby was eating, so she invented many peculiar alchemy tools for food .
The doorbell rang . It wasn’t anything magical though, it was a small bell that can be pulled by a visitor . It was the most common kind of bell in the mainland .
“Who is it…” asked Ye Lang with a towel still in one hand . He was brushing Little Xin’s hair .
Every time water or dirt got on Little Xin, Ye Lang would personally help her with it . He was too lazy to deal with it through controlling Little Xin because it was troublesome and it didn’t do as great of a job as him personally doing it .
Spirit maintenance was very important to Ye Lang . Since young, he’d always treated his things well anyway, especially something as precious as Little Xin .
This confused many people, mistaking his gentle kindness towards Little Xin for something else!
“Sir, your food is here!” came the boy’s voice . It was obvious from his tone that he was very proud of this job, also sucking up to Ye Lang .
“Oh, in a moment!” said Ye Lang, getting up to open the door .
“Sir, your food…” he grinned as the door opened .
“Thank you, just put it on the table!” said Ye Lang politely . At this point, his polite aristocrat etiquette became very obvious .
Usually, his politeness would be covered by his prodigal behaviours so everyone wouldn’t be able to see this side of him . People close to him all knew he was actually very polite- he was just very clueless .
“Alright!” the boy put the dishes on the tables neatly, even laying down bowls and chopsticks for Ye Lang and Little Xin- then filling their bowls with rice!
That level of customer service was only something you’d see in a high-class hotel like the Jewel Moon Palace . Naturally, most of this theatrics was to suck up to Ye Lang .
“Thank you, you may go now . Please close the door behind you too!” Ye Lang continued to rub Little Xin’s hair dry, ignoring everything else .
