Chapter 18: Novice Mission
According to his own experience in modern society, Wu Qingsong took the two beastwomen to a place that should be a residential area.
The past experience of traveling with his family told him that places with high traffic such as attractions and stations because there was no shortage of customers, the services that could be obtained at the same price were often lacking.
A tour how-to said this: Never look for something to eat near the scenic spot. You should follow the locals to find something to eat in their usual place.
Soon, they found several restaurants on a relatively deserted street, and the people who came in and out were obviously locals.
The combination of a half-elf and two young maids clearly was a little bit eye-catching. However, as a resident of a trading town, their ability to accept strange things was obviously stronger than that of an agriculture-based town like Calagados.
The owner was a middle-aged beastwoman who still had quite a charm. She recommended their specialty to Wu Qingsong; a dish made with sea fish, shellfish and vegetables. The three people ate while nodding their heads repeatedly.
“It’s so delicious!”
Liu Li could not help picking up the dishes and licked them clean making Wu Qingsong feel a little shameful.
“Do you know if there is a house for rent nearby?” he asked the owner. “Doesn’t have to be big, just clean.”
“Guest, do you want a separate yard or just one or two rooms?” the owner looked at their combination and asked.
“How much for the separate yard?”
“One month for around twenty Renals.”
“So expensive?” Ling immediately clicked her tongue.
“This place is Umbel!”
The shop owner shook her head.
“If you’re staying at an inn, even for a single room, one month would cost at least thirty Renals.”
“What about the rooms then?” Wu Qingsong asked.
“Guest, if you’re not picky, I have two empty rooms upstairs. You can take a look first and we can discuss everything else later.”
This arrangement seemed to be no problem. The owner then handed over the shop to his husband temporarily and took them upstairs.
There was not much of a difference between this house and the surrounding residential houses. The whole wooden structure has three floors. Tightly cramped together with the houses on both sides, Wu Qingsong felt that he had returned to the ‘village in the city’ next to the school. The room where the owner took them to see was at the end of the second floor. The doors of the two rooms were facing each other. One room was facing the street downstairs and they could smell the fragrance of the food from downstairs here, while the other room was facing a small alley. Through the layers of houses, they could faintly see the dock and the sea in the distance.
The furnishings in the room were simple; bed, closet, two stools and a small table that could be …Read More »
