"He's my adopted FATHER," Nora answered quickly.

"She keeps tellin' me she only gets the one. I keep tellin' her to explore her options!"

"I don't want a sugar daddy, Vance..."

The cogs in Vance's head began turning again.

"Is a... a sugar daddy a plant? That we don't have?"

Nora sighed.

"Whatever it is, it sounds fattening..." Karl remarked.

"This is great!" Ada said as she  leaned against her broom, "Usually my friends are very strange; this will be a nice change of pace!"

"What have I gotten myself into?" Nora thought to herself.

"I thought strange was just another way o' counting..." Vance seemed confused.

Karl was beginning to wonder about Vance just a tiny bit, but then, he had so little interaction with other people, maybe he understood the word wrong himself. In any case though, he definitely needed to get a room before they were all taken.

"Miss Ada, do you think I could reserve one of the room upstairs for the night?" he inquired, seeing as the innkeeper seemed momentarily preoccupied.

"I'm sure you could, I think that's what they're here for," Ada answered.

"They? Don't you work here?" Karl wondered.

"ADA!!! What have I told you about sweeping my floors?!" The innkeeper suddenly bellowed, "I pay Felix good money to handle that job!"

He pointed at a fellow who was sitting on a stool in the corner, sleeping.

She looked at Felix, then back at the innkeeper.

"How do you know I'm not Felix?" She asked as she raised an eyebrow.

"Because you are sweeping the floor! I hired Felix to take care of the floors because I knew that lazy bum wouldn't do a thing! Dirty floors build character! And I want my inn to have character!" the innkeeper ranted.

"...But I'm not sweeping right now, so that makes me Felix!" Ada declared after a moments thought.

"But if you are Felix, then who is that?" Vance pointed to the man in the corner.

The innkeeper was about to scream something else at Ada, but then realized he had no argument.

"So uh, now that we have your attention." Karl spoke-up innocently, "Can we rent a room!"

The innkeeper grumbled, grabbed a key, then tossed it to Ada.

"Okay Felix, show them to their room." he commanded her sarcastically.

"Oh boy, he's lost it now," Ada whispered to the others as she cautiously stepped away, "I don't know why, but I think he thinks I'm Felix!"

“Yes, but the upside is, I have a job now!” she said as she led the group to the stairs.

“I think the rooms are that way,” she said as she pointed up the steps.

"Let's go then." Karl followed, though he seemed to glance around as if looking for something.

"Why are we suddenly sleeping here for the night?" Nora whispered to Vance.

"We're wha-"

The cogs stopped turning.

"Are we back at the farm already?" he started catching up with the others, drawing a facepalm.

"Oh, are you guys staying here too?" Karl asked Nora and Vance.

Ada may notice she was only given the key to one room...

"No," Nora answered quickly, "We live right down the street..."

"We live on a farm, Nora, not a street," Vance corrected her.

"Huh?" Karl also seemed confused, wondering if he was this socially inept that he didn't understand how housing worked in the rest of the world, "Is that customary?"

"...It's been fun, but I have a job now, and I don't want to lose it, so bye!" Ada said quickly as she skipped over to the bar with her broom...

"Sorry," she said as ran back and handed Karl the key, "I think you wanted that for... something." She then skipped back the exact way she had 20 seconds earlier.

"Um..." Karl looked at the key, at the departing Ada, then at Vance and Nora, then back at the key, "So, see you two tomorrow maybe?"

He then got an idea.

"Hey, you guys are locals, maybe you can give me a tour of town!"
