The Covet Corner Hotel: Chapter 13 Finale


Morning! How are you doing today?

What’s that? Oh. You’re checking out? That’s… sad to hear. I hope you’ve enjoyed your stay with us here. You have? That’s good.

Oh well, if there’s any place you haven’t seen, might as well do it now while you’re still here. For example, did you know that there are multiple lobbies in this hotel? Sure, they’re not as lively as the one here, but it’s still interesting to go take a look. Ah, I shouldn’t be trying to make you change your mind. Either way, I am glad to hear that you’ve enjoyed your stay here with us, and we do hope you come back sometime. Our doors are always open. Alright, you’re all set to go.

Goodbye, and thank you for staying here with us at the Covet Corner Hotel.

The Covet Corner Hotel: Chapter 12


Morning!

Have you been enjoying your stay so far? I hope so.

These? Oh they’re treats from the fifth floor. Would you like some? They’re rather addicting so do pace yourself. I blame the Alraune Nectar that’s in it. OH! No no no! You don’t have to worry about it like that! They take out that part of it and make it similar to a simple, but better tasting, honey which they then use to make these snacks. These are the ‘virgin’ treats. They do make some of their treats using nothing but the extracted portion from the Alraune Nectar, but those are much more obvious and come with warnings to make sure you don’t accidentally eat one when you didn’t mean to.

If you’re really curious about how they make these, you could visit the facility up on the fifth floor. I believe they give tours of the place every now and then… Well, even if they don’t I would recommend going up there regardless, it’s a very relaxing spot to be in. Oh? You plan to go there right now? Wonderful! Please go right on ahead. Oh, and take some snacks with you, please! If they stay here I’ll end up eating all of them.

And again, thank you for staying at the Covet Corner Hotel.

The Covet Corner Hotel: Chapter 11


Welcome back!

What’s that? You found a job in the hotel? That’s great! I guess that means you’ll be staying with us for a while. If you haven’t already, I would suggest you pay a visit to the sixth floor and open an account with the hotel’s bank. Surprised? Considering everything else we have here, a bank isn’t all that surprising, now is it?

Whatever you do though, please don’t head up there through the elevators or stairs near the back of the hotel. If you do, you’ll end up at the ‘Snow Peaks’ section of the floor, and unless you remember to bring a sweater then you might freeze your fingers off. I’m sure one of the yukki-onnas are bound to let you in and warm up before that happens, but they might expect you to repay the favor.

It’s located closer to the front end of the hotel, near the 200’s. Oh, you’re going up right now? Good. Glad I could be of help. Have a good day, and thanks again for staying here with us here at the Covet Corner Hotel.

A Whisper of Dusk, Chapter 3, Opposites Attach


“How is it, that you were able to understand her, Majin Arawn?” asked Victoria.
“It is quite simple, your Highness. A long time ago, I learned to speak Baby.”
“That’s preposterous Arawn, babies don’t speak.” She claimed, with her own Mother looking dubiously over her shoulder at me.
“Well then, let me give you a demonstration your Highness.” I then turned and addressed her baby. After a few interchanges, I came up with a suitable reply.
“According to your daughter, the reason why she doesn’t like to feed immediately after you bathe, is that the soap you use is overly spicy.”

The Spider Girl’s Toilette


‘Great Maou! It’s just one Damned Thing after another!’, Helvetia thought to herself at the controls of her Teleportation Platform (#11).
Tia took a quick break while her platform ran its automatic internal self-diagnostic. Looking over at Sundia’s platform, she saw that a pair of Red Oni, were having trouble keeping their own newly teleported Damned Thing under control. ‘It’s good to see I’m not the only one having to deal with these obnoxious creatures!’ None of the Damned Things cared for the Teleportation process and let everyone and everything around them know about it.

The Covet Corner Hotel: Chapter 10


Good morning! How are you?

The smell? Yes, we know… there was a minor incident this morning that caused that. Not to worry though, our bubble slimes are doing all that they can in order to make sure that it doesn’t linger too long! In the meantime, here have this voucher for the inconvenience. With that you can get a free meal at any of the restaurants inside the hotel, but be sure to ask which meals that voucher is valid for. Some of the places in here will only give you a discount instead if you decide to order anything too expensive.

Not sure where to use it? Hmm… how about up on the fourth floor? Oh, you haven’t been up there yet? Then you absolutely must! Especially now, even if it’s just to get rid of the smell out of your nose. They have quite a number of restaurants up on that floor, I believe one in particular has the voucher valid for everything on their menu… I am almost certain it’s the one across the park. I hear it’s quite the popular spot, especially for single mamono mothers… in case you’re interested.

Oh sorry, there I go trailing on again. Either way, please forgive us for this minor discomfort and enjoy your free meal.

And thank you for continuing your stay here with us here at the Covet Corner Hotel.

The Covet Corner Hotel: Chapter 9


Hello again!

How are you doing today? Good? That’s great!

Hmm… you seem a bit bored though. Nothing catching your interest? Well… you could always visit the demon realm a few floors below us. Its got quite the night life from what I hear. Not only that, they even sell things that can’t be found up on the eighth floor’s bazaar.

But if you do plan on going down there, I’d suggest taking this charm down with you. The air is thick with demonic energy from all the succubi that live down there, you might not be able to control yourself if you stay down there too long without some form of protection. Oh, so you are interested! Very well, but before you do so, I’ll need you to sign this charm out. You’ll need to return it at some point or we’ll charge you for it, and trust me it isn’t cheap.

Alright then, I do hope you enjoy your visit down there. And if you should happen to pass by V.V., I’d recommend looking for the girls in the maid uniforms… they’re quite talented.

Either way, thanks again for staying with us here at the Covet Corner Hotel.

The Covet Corner Hotel: Chapter 8


Morning!

I hope you’re enjoying your stay with us here at the Covet Corner Hotel.

We’ve been proudly providing service and comfort for twenty years now, imagine that! Well… that’s not completely true, but it’s not a lie either.

Either way, have you been enjoying the visits to each of the floors thus far? I hope so, they all have something interesting or unique in them, and I don’t mean just the residents on those floors. For example, did you know that the seventh floor is where we keep the criminals? The floor makes up most of the security team in the hotel, so we put the jail up there too. We don’t really use it very often… it’s really more of cool down room for particularly violent mamono when they’re in heat.

Yep, so if you find yourself behind bars, you’re probably up there… or four floors below us… hopefully you’re up there.

Oh, there I go rambling again, sorry for distracting you for so long.

Enjoy your day, and thanks again for staying here at the Covet Corner Hotel.

The Covet Corner Hotel: Chapter 7


Good evening!

Are you enjoying your stay with us thus far? Yes? Most excellent!

I see you have been walking around the hotel quite a bit, getting to know what each floor has to offer. Although normally this is a good, I must express some concerns with a few certain floors. Probably the safest one that you should be concerned with is the second basement level floor. The floor itself isn’t per say dangerous, but it is fairly easy to get lost in. It’s the only floor where the numbers aren’t in order. Supposedly there is a pattern to them, but I’ve never figured it out myself. Rumor has it that the floor was designed by the first echidna that ever moved in to this place. Amazing, is it not?

Regardless, many of the residents are nice, and are willing to give a helping hand to a lost guest. But be warned, do not, I repeat, do not open any of the chests or jars that line the hallways. The residents do not take kindly to those who barge into their homes… so please remember to knock, they will come out on their own.

As long as you do that, you shouldn’t really have any issues on that floor. Just please remember to follow that one rule… the last person that didn’t went missing for a week. We eventually found him passed out and naked on the seventh floor. So, again, please keep that in mind.

Thank you, and enjoy your night here at the Covet Corner Hotel!
