Monster Pet Evolution - Chapter 146
Chapter 146 – Hotel
Chapter 146: Hotel
(Author note: The kidney fern mentioned in the previous chapter really exists, and it is actually quite common in real life. It’s also called the raurenga, and anyone who is interested can search for it on Baidu. Many people might have seen it before.
The body of the author is, of course, perfect, so there is no way for me to have urinary pain. I don’t have urinary pain.)
“I told you to try your best to get in the top 12. The Alliance Youth Monster Trainer General Assembly would do much to help you grow and develop in the future,” a bearded man in the hotel said with a grim face.
“Dad, I already tried my best. It’s not like you didn’t see my performance on TV,” said a boy wearing a white patterned T-shirt as he stood in front of the man. The boy rubbed his red and swollen face.
“Dad, why don’t you look through your contacts and see if you can get me a place inside?” the boy asked testingly.
“Ridiculous! How do you expect me to get you into such a large-scale general assembly! You really think your father is almighty?” the man scolded. “You little b*stard, you’ve never given me a break ever since you were young. From primary school to middle school, and then from middle school to high school, when did I not use my contacts to help you? You’re really infuriating.”
“When will you start living up to expectations!” the man said, exasperated.
“Dad, I know I messed up. I won’t do it again. Please believe in me,” the boy said, admitting his mistakes three times.
The man was infuriated, but after looking at the boy, his heart softened. It was his only son, after all!
Why did he work so hard? Was it not to provide a better life and environment for his offspring? Because he had lived a life filled with debauchery, he had health issues that rendered him unable to reproduce.
This was the one and only son that he would ever have.
He sighed deeply.
What else could he do? The boy was his only son. He could not just give up like this, right? His mouth might say that he would break his son’s leg, but in truth, his heart still ached.
“Give me some time to think. You had better keep a low profile over the next few days! Don’t f*cking hang around with those rubbish friends of yours! If I see you hanging out with them again, I will seriously break your good for nothing leg!” The expression on the man’s face was gloomy as he spoke in a low voice.
“Thank you, Dad!” The boy smiled. He knew that his father was prepared to help him, and at the same time, he made a decision in his heart. He decided that he would keep a low profile for the next two days and not hang out in bars. He would wait until things were over before deciding anything else.
Seeing his son’s back, the man walked back and forth. His face was distorted and very gloomy.
Even if he was the mayor of the city base of Jinling, he could not take action that was too obvious. After all, many eyes were fixed on him, waiting for him to make a mistake. The moment he made a single mistake, the people below him would pounce like hungry dogs and tear him apart.
After deliberating for a long time, the man took out his phone. “Send the information of all the examinees to me.”
After handing over his familiars to the service center of the hotel, Gao Peng returned to his room and fell asleep immediately.
He slept all the way to the morning of the second day. Gao Peng finished washing up and went downstairs. After consulting the hotel management staff, he walked towards the back hall.
All the familiars were kept in the back hall, and entering the hall was like walking into a zoo. One after another, familiars were kept in rooms, and in front of each door was an iron railing. Gao Peng glanced at the rooms and noticed that they were quite big. They were clean and spacious. Moreover, there were no odd odors.
Upon reaching Dumby and the gang’s room, he found the room empty. Through the contract’s binding agreement, Gao Peng knew that Dumby and the gang were not far from him.
“They’re taking a bath?” Gao Peng’s eye twitched as he looked at the hotel staff in front of him.
“Yes, do you want to go see?”
Gao Peng nodded. “Please lead the way.”
They walked through a corridor, and the surrounding air became humid. A gust of hot air came from the large room in front of them. The big room had several large windows. It seemed a little weird because the windows did not have any frames, they were just large holes.
White steam came out of the windows.
Sounds of water gushing out of hoses came from within the room, and the vague moans of monsters could also be heard.
It was like a large bathhouse. The four sides of the rooms were on a higher level, while the center of the floor was sunk lower. The floor was made of rough cement. Water flowed from the sides and gathered in the center. On the four sides of the bathhouse, hotel staff wearing blue work clothes held water spray guns in their hands and sprayed water at the familiars in the middle of the room.
The familiars were Dumby, Da Zi, and the others.
Da Zi sat quietly on the ground and allowed water to flow over its body. It seemed in peace.
Stripey, on the other hand, did not seem comfortable. It looked like it was dancing ballet as it skittered around on the ground. A leap and a jump, and sounds with unknown meaning kept coming from its mouth.
Dumby, on the other hand, just let the water flow through its empty skeletal frame with its head lowered. It expanded its palms, seeming to think it was amusing. Water flowed past its silverish grey bones. It felt comfortable. It was soft, and it felt light and fluffy, just like the feeling of moving a palm through a large bunch of swan feathers.
The most agitated and happy of them all was none other than Silly. Just like a small gyro, it was pushed away by the water spray. It floated all over the place in the room. It would occasionally stop and sit on the head of one of the hotel staff. Paired with the color of their work clothes, it looked pretty decent.
Silly was a jellyfish in the first place. Although it was now the kind of jellyfish that floated in the sky, it still liked water.
The familiars noticed when Gao Peng walked in, and they rushed over to him in excitement. It was only due to their size that they did not continue their dash and tackle Gao Peng. However, they still tried hard to lean onto Gao Peng, making Gao Peng’s body wet. His outfit became utterly soaked.
“Alright. Alright.” Gao Peng patted the familiars and said to the hotel staff, “Are they done showering?”
“Not yet…” one of the staff said.
“Alright, then I’m taking them away,” Gao Peng said while smiling.
The hotel staff was speechless.
Gao Peng felt bored after playing with his familiars during the afternoon. He prepared to purchase a ticket back to Chang’an. The development of the city base of Jiangnan was decent, but it was not his home. No matter how busy and bustling it was, Gao Peng did not feel that he belonged.
The busier it was, the easier it was to feel lonely.
He could check the results through the internet. The top 12 were automatically qualified to participate in the third round of the examination, which was the qualification to participate in the Alliance’s Strongest Youth Monster Trainer General Assembly.
As such, after the exam, he was free to do anything he wanted.
The only thing was that there was an additional banner on the top part of the official website when he checked his result, and it was that the Alliance’s Strongest Youth Monster Trainer General Assembly would be held in three months, which was two months later than the previously determined date.
The most important thing was that the age limit was actually capped at 20 years old and three months. What the heck was that?
It was the first time Gao Peng had seen that the age limit was accurate to the month!
“Did they go crazy?!”
After returning to the hotel at night, a few people who sat in the hall stood up silently and walked over.
Gao Peng paused his steps briefly and looked at those people.
“I’ve been looking for you for a long time. The staff said that you were not at the hotel. Want to go have a bite of dinner? We’re all from Chang’an here.” Wang Zhenshan smiled harmlessly.
