    In need of a place to recharge.

    It was a little after sunset when Lawrence finally made it to the district where the city's inn was located, and none too soon either. The 'recharge required' indicator on his HUD was starting to blink annoyingly, and that generally meant he had about an hour of charge remaining. The butler bot was a bit surprised he was running out of energy so soon, but then again he had been wandering the city all day since arriving.

    Upon entering, he glanced around at the decor, thinking it rather quaint but not really feeling there was much that could be improved. Inns were supposed to be cozy, after all. Lawrence didn't immediately spot the innkeeper, and so he called out for whoever it was. "Excuse me, is there anyone here? I'd like to inquire about some lodging, preferably a room equipped with a universal charging station?"

    "Excuse me, is there anyone here? I'd like to inquire about some lodging, preferably a room equipped with a universal charging station?"

    There was somebody at the reception! New people?!

    Link dropped his pen and hurried out of his office to the area behind the reception desk it was attached to, very almost tripping over Ganon who was sleeping right in his path. Actually, since his RP-er is bored, she’ll erase the words ‘very almost tripping’ and replace it with ‘totally tripped’!

    “Nga!” went Link as he stumbled and crash through the doorway that led to the reception.

    “Squeeerk!” went the poor piggy.

    Embarrassed and hat askew, the boy climbed to his feet and hopped onto his tall reception chair, resisting the urge to wince and smiled pleasantly as he could to the…. Oh? A butler? Wait, what’s a universal charging station? Is that the white socket in the wall that magically zaps energy to things?

    Lawrence was certainly surprised to see a child as young as that come dashing out of the nearby office. Dashing and tripping, that had to hurt! That earned the boy a bit of a sympathy wince, but only while he wasn't looking. Once he reached the front desk, the butler was once again just as nonchalant as ever. "You are the innkeeper? Aren't you a little young for this?"

    He laughed and nodded, rummaging around his desk for his digi-notepad but failing to find it. Mm, must have left it in the office. He grabbed a random sheet of paper and started scribbling before showing the words to the butler.

    “I am, probably, but the previous innkeeper insisted so here I am.”

    He fished out a card key from under his desk and scribbled another note. “Are you looking for a room? Which floor would you like?”

    If Lawrence had any eyebrows, he probably would've arched one at the young innkeeper presenting that first note. Mute as well as that young? Then again, the labor practices back in his home universe weren't much better on certain worlds, so he let it slide. "Well, if he trusts you enough to run this place, it's fine."

    Then the boy rummaged around in the desk a bit, digging out what the butler recognized as a card key before showing a new note. Lawrence read it, then answered him. "Yes, I'm looking for a room. Something on the first floor would be nice, I suppose."

    First floor? He glanced at the key he had in hand. Second floor, it read. He quickly rifled through the card keys for a first floor key and made the switch. Smiling as he gave the butler the new key.

    "Hope you enjoy your stay," his next note read.

    After switching card keys, the boy handed the one he'd just retrieved to Lawrence. "Thank you." The butler took a second to read it, it said 'Room 105'; that would be easy enough to find.

    After a second the young innkeeper presented one last note, and Lawrence nodded to him. "Yes, this place certainly seems pleasant enough. Much better than some of my old employer's evil lairs. I'm fairly sure I can find the room on my own, so I'll see you later."

    He watched the butler made his way away from the reception to search down his room. Pleased that to have settled another new guest, Link hopped off his seat and went back into the office to start on the neccessary paperwork for newcomers.

    "NGEKKKK!"

    "SQUUUUERRRK!"

    And he tripped over Ganon once again.
