250 I Can Finally Take a Quick Shower
Before He Xing entered the restaurant, he only said that he wanted to ask around. How did he get 2,000 integrity points in such a short time? Du Yue looked at the restaurant He Xing had just entered and had a guess in her heart. “Did you exchange your supplies with them?”
“Yes.” He Xing nodded. “I asked the shopkeeper where I could exchange my credits. The shopkeeper said that as long as I had supplies, they could exchange the points with me. The points that are exchanged can be directly transferred to my resident card, saving me the trouble of making another trip. Furthermore, the price they offered is even higher than what’s offered by the base officials.”
Du Yue and He Xing wanted integrity points because they could not do anything here without them. As for who they exchanged with, they did not care as long as they got what they wanted. He Xing sat down on Du Yue’s right side and continued, “I traded those two cigarettes in my bag for integrity points.”
Du Yue knew that there were two more cigarettes in He Xing’s bag. However, what she did not expect was that just two cigarettes could be exchanged for 2,000 integrity points. People in the inner city were really indulgent.
2,000 integrity points would be enough for her and He Xing to eat for a year if they were to use them to buy food. “After exchanging for some integrity points, I asked the shopowner about some things. Almost everyone here knows about the matter of the celestial lord choosing a wife. The women who are going to participate in the selection will all stay in the Celestial Lord Palace, and the official selection will begin in a week.”
“The Celestial Lord Palace? Is that where the sleeping chamber of the celestial lord is?”
“More or less. The Celestial Lord Palace is the tallest building here. It has a total of nine floors, and the ninth floor is the platform for the cloud track. The fourth to eighth floors are similar to this place. There’s a hotel, some restaurants, stores, and entertainment venues. As for the first, second, and third floors, they’re for personal use.”
“Then let’s not look around blindly. Let’s just go there and find a place to stay!”
He Xing looked at Du Yue with a smile. “I had the same thought. Let’s not waste any time. Let’s hurry over.”
The two of them shared the same thoughts and did not continue to stroll around. Instead, they took the elevator directly to the top floor. After swiping their card, they took the cloud track. Their destination was, of course, the Celestial Lord Palace.
From here to the Celestial Lord Palace, each person had to pay three integrity points. He Xing’s card had 2,000 integrity points. If there were no mishaps, the points would be enough for the two of them to spend for a while, so they did not feel bad about the fare. When they arrived at the Celestial Lord Palace, they went down from the ninth floor to the eighth floor. They saw that the seventh and eighth floors were part of a hotel. However, the entire seventh floor had been reserved by the celestial lord, and the girls who were about to participate in the election were now staying there.
The hotel here was very expensive, costing 20 integrity points a night. They had to stay at least until the selection was over, so He Xing paid for a week’s worth of accommodation in advance. After getting the room card, the two of them quickly found their room according to the room number stated on the card. This place was similar to the hotels before the apocalypse. Although it was not as luxurious as Du Yue had imagined, it had all the necessary facilities, ad it would not be a problem to stay here.
Together with Du Yue, He Xing checked the entire room. After making sure that there was no audio or surveillance equipment, they sat down to rest. After a busy morning, the two of them were a little tired. Du Yue looked at the double bed in the room and frowned. She put it into her interspace and took out her own bed. Then, she took out a change of clothes and said to He Xing, “I’m going to take a shower.”
“Okay, I’ll go and take a shower later too.” They could take a bath here, so they did not need to waste the water in the space. Speaking of which, Du Yue had been taking a bath for the past few years and had not taken a shower for a long time. Although the bath was very comfortable, she always felt that it was not as hygienic as a shower, so she was very satisfied with the shower this time.
20 minutes later, Du Yue came out of the bathroom in a clean set of pajamas. She had casually wrapped her wet hair with a dry towel and tied it into a small bun on her head, revealing her smooth and fair forehead. Seeing her like this, He Xing took a dry towel and walked to her side. I’ll help you dry yourself.
Ever since they got together, Du Yue had almost never dried her hair herself, so she was already used to it. She allowed He Xing to play with her hair from behind. Fortunately, Du Yue had cut her hair short in order to save time, so her hair dried very quickly. The temperature in the room was just right, so there was no need to blow dry it. She just had to wait for it to dry by itself.
Du Yue took out He Xing’s pajamas from her interspace and handed him a clean bath towel. “Go and take a shower!”
