Time has passed. Perhaps too much time. It is hard to tell in the everdark of this place. Wounds and exhaustion make sleep unscheduled, and meals are scattered and snatched in moments of rest.

Time enough has passed that Syder can move, though doing so unassisted, either by people or tools, is slow and painful. At some point the group had made its way to the second story, and no new Guests have yet appeared.

The cut on Damiens face is looking worse every day. He is currently asleep on the floor. Jason slept earlier and kept watch while everyone else, or what he assumes to be everyone else, got some rest. He's been standing in the doorway between the bathroom and the main room for at least an hour.

Randall holds his Raichu to his chest. How they've managed to survive, he doesn't know. But Olive and Roger and Leftie are all fine. He's still pathetic and whiny, but he does it for them. If his Pokemon were to get hurt...

He rests his cheek on Leftie's head. Olive and Roger are dozing soundly-- Olive's in the bath tub at the moment.

But have they not?

A roserade walks into the hotel, looking about and scoffing. He was happy to see some semblance of society in this god forsaken void, but this hardly matched his tastes. Still, it would be vastly better than wandering around that wasteland outside.

Grass and vegetation would extend out from under the roserade, lifting him so that he may sit upon the counter. He rung the bell once before looking at the paper. A sign in sheet? May as well.

Prince Hydrangea would be written in the next available slot as he waited, his handwriting surprisingly fancy for a species with no fingers. Though if he truly was a prince of some place that would be fitting.

ding!

the elevator next to the lobby opens, light shining brightly inside. A large purple blob sits inside for a brief moment, before tumbling forward towards the desk.

It quickly becomes apparent that this blog is a carpet, with golden flowers lining the sides.

Hydrangea cocked a single eyebrow at this... carpet. Certainly he could imagine stranger greetings, but this was something that he wouldn't have believed were it told to him by anyone else.

"...you're the receptionist. How queer. No matter, how much for a room?" He asked, gazing over to the keys before back to this carpet fellow.

When looking back to the carpet, it becomes evident that there is a key on it. in fact, dozens of keys, little golden things with '221' written on them, all sitting in the middle of the gold decorations along the side.

It is almost certain that these weren't there the last time you looked at them.

Prompt. How wonderful. He did not even need to introduce himself and this... creature seemed to know it's place. That, or it was mocking him. Hard to get a read on this carpet.

"Much obliged, worker. Shall that be all or are you proposing to lead me to my room as well, with all those keys of yours." He asked, a regal smile on his face.

The elevator dinged again. The carpet remained an arguably inanimate floor covering.

Hydrangea narrowed his eyes. Either someone had played a trick to make him look the fool, or this place had some odd enchantment upon it. No matter, he'd snag a key and walk into this elevator.

His first priority was to find this room 221 and get settled in. Today has been far too long and he needed his afternoon nap, after all. Though the courtyard he saw on the map was a tempting walk after he made sure where that room was.

Oddly enough, the elevator didn't actually have floor buttons. just an up button and a down one. And the carpet was very clearly not blocking the doors from closing, despite having rolled out from the elevator.

The up arrow is faintly glowing. The down arrow is not. The floor counter proudly displays you at floor one of three.

How odd. Obviously Hydrangea would just press up and hope this odd place knew what it was doing.

and up the elevator went. Loudly. not the newest of elevators, this, though maybe the actual metal gates instead of blank doors was an indicator of that.

The floor counter moved from the 1 on the left over to the 2 in the middle... then to the three. and then the numbers behind it started to scroll.

and then the elevator sped up.

maybe thirty seconds later, it stopped. The floor was marked as the twenty second floor, and the door opened to a much more regal looking hallway than the one at the first floor. fancy vases, tapestries and paintings, lots of ostentatious colors, it almost looked like a palace. The sign opposite the elevator pointed rooms 221-229 in one direction, and rooms 2210-2240 in the other, in flagrant disregard for how numbering systems are supposed to work in these kinds of places.

This elevator had to be joking. This is a three story building, he saw as much both outside and on that map. And why wasn't it stopping any time soon. Any more of these schemes and-

Oh... hello. This is more fitting for a man like him. It was certainly gaudy compared to his palace back home, but a delightful change of pace none the less.

Still, off he went towards the room assigned to him, though the numbering would be confusing for sure. This is why workers shouldn't be drunk on the job.

There was fancy golden numbering on every door. And names as well, each with a different title. A king here, a lord there, one was for a self-styled goddess. 223 had the named frantically scratched off, but the title of 'The Usurper' remained. 222 belonged to 'Erika of the Elite Four'.

And, true to form, room 221 had "Prince Hydrangea" below the numbers.

Being two doors down from 'The Usurper' made Hydrangea far more uncomfortable. Hopefully this hotel kept the unwritten policy of 'don't bother the other tenants', as the last thing he needed was to deal with whoever found themselves with a name like that.

Still, he would work the key and walk in, should the door unlock for him.
