"Oh, like an inn! Yeah, we've got inns. The inns don't have baths in them, though. Very few things have baths in them besides bathhouses."

Permalink

"Yeah! Let's find a hotel and bathe."

Permalink

It's winter, so the hotels aren't in hot demand. With utility corridors and keen senses of smell, it's not too hard to find an empty room. A penthouse, Tabby insists. A quick, superhuman twist of the door knob, and they're in.

The penthouse is vaguely nautical themed, with aged driftwood decorations and mother of pearl floors. And a mini fridge. And a spa-bath.

Ari beholds the bathtub.

"...How does the water get in?"

Permalink

Tabby somewhat smugly turns the hot water knob.

Permalink

While Zeke is delighted to find some complimentary scented bubble bath!

Permalink

"Ooh!"

Ari starts washing off, delighted by the hot water and the scented bubbles.

Permalink

Tabby raids the fridge for little cans of pop. 

"Think we should try the superhero thing?"

Permalink

"What, you mean like going around helping people?"

Permalink

"Yeah! And beating up bad people! Maybe eating them! If there's less bad people, the good people will die less and that means more food!"

Permalink

"And we can be colourful!"

Permalink

"Yeah! I'll make some vitaar, we'll have to go back to the Wilds for a bit to get the ingredients but I can collect them pretty quickly."

Permalink

"The swamp where I came from. We can go back to the haunted house and go back through that mirror, I'll get all the herbs and brew them together, then we can come back and be heroes."

Permalink

"Nice."

Ari dries off with the absurdly fluffy (by his standards) hotel towel.

Permalink

Zeke punches out the bathroom window and slips out into the night air.

Permalink

"...Windows open, you know," Ari feels compelled to point out. Then he follows Zeke out.

Permalink

Twenty stories down, Zeke lands on his feet before darting into an alley.

Permalink

Follow, follow. (The concept of an alley is still a bit weird to Ari. The concept of buildings close enough to form alleys, really.)

Permalink

They make their way back to the haunted house. A layer of snow has settled over Ari's first meal.

Permalink

Aw, nostalgic.

Ari finds the mirror easily enough. It's humming with magic just like its twin, so he pokes it again, and he gets sucked right back in and pops out in the ruins. He waits for the twins to come through after him.

Permalink

They stumble through happily.
