    Room is hopefully not in another Inn.

    The doors to Stock Pot Inn swung open at a casual pace before a certain mustachioed plumber stepped into the lobby. He looked around a bit, taking note of the reception area first before letting his eyes wander to the lounge. Everything just looked so warm and inviting. It immediately gave the sense of feeling like you were home. Well to Mario, at least.

    Feeling a little mischievous the short, plump man looked around a bit to make sure no one was watching before making his way over to pick up the TV controller. He leaped backwards, landing with his bottom planted securely on one of the couch cushions before starting to channel surf. Not exactly a crime, but he hadn't checked in yet, so he did feel a bit cheeky doing so.

    He wasn't flipping through the TV channels completely without reason, however. After having met Kev earlier in the day he'd done a bit of exploring in order to familiarize himself a bit with his new surrounds, and his current action served the same purpose in a way. Whenever he spotted something of interest he'd stop and watch for a minute or two to try and get the gist of things before continuing. Even with all the adventures and crazy stuff that happened on a fairly regular basis back home, this Portal Breach place was full of all sort of different happenings.

    Mario turned the TV off again, simply sitting there with an unreadable expression for a minute or so. It was a lot to take in, all of it. Especially the fact that Luigi and Peach were either just gone, or somewhere out there, lost like him. There was nothing he could really do about it, though. Not now anyway. What he could do was get himself a room, so after jumping down from the couch he made his way over to the reception, using the bell on the counter. "Hello?" he asked out loud, hoping there was someone in the office.

    Link had already gone upstairs for the night and had been hanging out with Zelda, Link, and Tetra whilst Impa had taken the chance to surprise them with a later evening snack. The past couple of days had been especially interesting, as it was only a few days ago that Tetra had discovered that the boy she thought she knew as Sheik was in fact none other than her ancestor, Princess Zelda. Not only were the two girls related, but the same as Link and himself, they both shared the same spirit, making the secret an even more amazing reveal.

    The five of them had had a great time together ever since the pirate captain had first arrived, but now that she knew Zelda's secret, that only seemed to intensify. They'd been having so much fun that it was tough for them to decide who would go downstairs to check things out by the desk! Around some quick discussion though, the Hero of Time had offered to tackle this check, and here he found himself in the office looking over a few things before getting set to dash back upstairs.

    As he was descending the last flight of stairs, his ears perked up slightly as he caught the sound of the bell on the reception desk, followed by a curious greeting being called out. It appeared that his timing had been pretty good here, so with a smile to go see whoever needed assistance at this time of night, the young hero hit the landed and proceeded to head towards the desk.

    … right before pausing in his tracks as he saw just who was standing there, or rather, what he looked like. Farore… he had never seen this man before in his life, but he bore an incredible resemblance to Talon! He was shorter than the owner of Lon Lon Ranch, and both his moustache and outfit were decided different, but there was still some uncanny similarities between the two of them!

    Shaking his head a bit to clear it from that, Link smiled as he came around the front of the desk, stating, "Hi there! Welcome to the Stock Pot Inn. My name is Link… can I help you?"

    Mario beamed at the younger boy as he appeared before him. "Help?" he repeated before nodding vigorously. "Oh yes, you can-a help Mario. I'm-a wondering if you have room available. Somewhere for-a Mario to hang his cap and plunger," he explained, even pulling his plunger out and waving it around a little for emphasis. He'd been lucky enough during his little exploration trip to discover it laying on the ground not too far from Kev's house.

    "I have-a gold coins, but if they no good Mario can-a do plumbing for you to pay for room," he assured the green-clad innkeeper, stuffing his plunger back into whatever place he had pulled it from. "Mario is number one plumber! Woo-Hoo!" He had heard that the room and board here were free, but he wanted to make sure there wouldn't be any problems, just in case. He felt like he had to contribute something. It was only fair, wasn't it? "Also number one pasta chef."

    Link's smile broadened at the friendly greeting from the mustachioed man, nodding back to him as he confirmed that he needed a room. He raised his eyebrows a bit at the sight of the plunger, inwardly noting that the new arrival seemed to have his own version of Hyrulean storage space. Now that was handy!

    With a slight chuckle, Link started to move behind the desk so he could get the proper form for the man, noting, "Of course we have room! Let me get a form and key set for you."

    As the Hero of Time dated the form and started to check over the room list, he glanced up at Mario as he offered his gold coins to help pay for the room. Smiling once more and shaking his head a bit, Link stated, "Oh no, that's all right, although it's good to know there's a plumber around! The inn is completely free, actually. That includes room, board, food, and everything else." With the gold coins being offered though, he was reminded of when he had had to exchange most of his Rupees once he himself had arrived here… it might not hurt to let Mario know that he could still make use of his coins albeit in a different way. "You will need currency in the city though, but you can go exchange those gold coins for the credits that are used here. The exchange is one of the places noted on this map."

    At that, Link placed a map of the Breach onto the counter for Mario, soon smiling a bit more as he added that he was also a great pasta chef. Their own chef Komatsu might be intrigued to learn that! First things first, though. "We have four floors here. Do you have a preference?"

    Mario watched as the young innkeeper produced the form he was talking about, happy to hear there was indeed a room available. He took his hat off, scratching his head a little as Link told him his stay at the inn would come at no charge. An unexpected, but welcome surprise to be sure. Since he'd pretty much always been a principal member of Peach's traveling party he wasn't exactly unused to getting free lodging. Still, it wasn't something he thought he could have relied on now, so hearing his room wouldn't cost him anything was good news.

    He was a little more skeptical at first when he heard this other piece of information, though, that he had to get his coins exchanged for some other, unfamiliar form of currency. After all, he hadn't known of a place that didn't accept gold coins. "Hmmmmmm..." he hummed while rubbing his chin, having placed his hat back on his head by now. He had to remember that this place, whatever and wherever it was, was different than any other realm he had been to. He'd kind of have to expect the unexpected. The plumber gave Link a big thumb's up, smiling beneath that wavy mustache. "Woohoo! Okay!"

    Grabbing the map, Mario stared at it for a moment. Now this would certainly come in handy! Lowering it to look back at Link again he gave the boy a thoughtful pout. "Hmmm... Mario think he stay-a on the second floor," he replied with a nod.

    Link was knew very well that the Stock Pot Inn providing everything for free was certainly surprising to new tenants, but by the same token, it was also usually just as welcome. It had certainly been rather unexpected for him once he himself had arrived on the Breach, but it had been immensely helpful as he had got settled in this new world. He had no idea at the time he met up with the older Link here that a couple of years later, he would not only be staff at the inn as well, but the assistant innkeeper at that. It was certainly a great job to have landed in, and given the way that his newfound family had made the inn just as much their own home as it was a safe haven for so many other residents, he was especially glad for it.

    As far as currency was concerned, it was a hurdle that everyone had to jump once they arrived here. Gold coins certainly sounded interesting, but the Hero of Time knew that they would not help the plumber out much unless if he got them exchanged. At Mario's okay and thumbs up, Link simply chuckled happily. He was only just getting to meet the man, but he already had a good feeling about him!

    At Mario's confirmation that he wanted to stay on the second floor, Link readily nodded and soon fished out at the key that corresponded to one of the rooms he'd had in mind. "All right, that sounds great!" With the number noted on the form and in his own records, Link placed the piece of paper on the desk in front of the plumber, making sure that it was facing him as he got a pen out for him to use. Offering the pen to Mario, Link stated, "If you could just print your name and sign here, the key and room will be all yours!"
