...That's right, it may be best to get your shower in before everyone else is up and trying to bathe. Looking back at Youmu one last time, you confirm her sleeping status before grabbing a change of clothes and leaving the room, Nyom in tow.
Looking around the hallway, you can see that only one or two of the creepy new servants are around in this part of the mansion. Just as you think about that, a third appears wheeling a cart through the hall, rushing off in the direction of the main kitchen.
Shrugging off the feeling that those servants must be some kind of potential evil, you turn your attention back to your goal, which is the nearest shower. Coming across an intersection of hallways, you take the hall to the right and find a door which you think is the door to one of the bathrooms. Opening it up, you confirm your suspicions while stepping into the place.
Locking the door, you set your bag down on the counter top and look into the large mirror, to see yourself and a foggy, human shaped form of Nyom. Turning your attention to the blob, you see that it's still as fluffy and round as ever, with no distinguishable body parts on its surface. With a sigh of relief, you turn on the water and undress.
"...Hey Nyom... Can you speak, or make sounds other than that 'myon' noise...?" Pulling your skirt off, you see that the thing shakes itself in a way that says "no". "...Are you lying to me?"
As you finish undressing and test the water, it shakes itself rapidly, signifying that it isn't a liar. Giggling, you pull the shower curtain closed and turn on the shower head, which is set to a hard spray. Nyom floats over and rests on your head while you begin to wash yourself with soap, and makes small 'myon' sounds as you move down to wash your legs and up to stand upright.
...Swallowing hard, you wash around your thighs, suddenly with thoughts of Renko coming to mind. Cleaning between your legs, you resist the urge to do anything strange while in the shower, out of fear that Mary might have cameras hidden all over the mansion, including in the bathrooms.
"...Ah... hah... Hey, Nyom..." Squirting some of the shampoo out of its container, you prod the ghost while holding the strange liquid. "Could you get up? I need to wash my hair, too."
Obeying your commands, the large white blob lifts off of your head as you begin to rub shampoo into your wet locks, getting it covered all over. As you continue to do this, you feel something ram into your rump, pushing you a little as it does so.
"H-hey! Nyom, is that you doing that...?" Scolding it, you shake your head while washing the shampoo away. "If you want to play or something, then you can just wait until I'm done showering... okay?"
With your eyes now open, you turn about to see the blob with a bright red hue on its surface, nodding in agreement. With a sigh you reach over to the conditioner container and squirt some into your hand, before running it through your hair. A tingling sensation coats your scalp as you do this, cooling your head off from the warm water of the shower. Making sure to get all of your hair from curl to base covered, you rinse your head off one last time.
Stepping out of the shower, you take hold of a towel and begin to dry your face and bangs off a little, so you can see better. Wrapping it around yourself, you make your way to the large mirror to brush and blow dry your hair for the day.
It doesn't take long to finish your personal hygiene run, ending it with some nail buffing and trimming. Feeling refreshed, you look at the new set of clothes that you picked up, which is... A red skirt, a white button up shirt, a white undershirt, a pair of socks, a pair of... panties, and a brown hair tie. It feels a bit perverted, but you put on the women's underwear along with the rest of the clothes, now dry and content.
Looking in the mirror, you can see that you look cleaner than when you first came into the bathroom, although... the end of your ponytail is curling up a little, which you think is rather annoying. Ignoring it for now, you stretch and then reach to pet Nyom, then realizing that your ghost companion has become wet from the humidity of the room.
After drying Nyom off, which involved a lot of 'myon's and some other squeaking noises, you exit the room with your bag and old change of clothes, taking a left and heading back to your room. Peeking in, you see a light on and decide to enter, wondering what time it is now.
Closing the door behind you, you see that Youmu is now awake, watching a program about gardening while cuddling her ghost companion to her chest. She gives you a sleepy 'I just woke up a few minutes ago' look before her eyes fly open, and her expression becomes serious and refined. Letting go of her ghost friend, she takes a courteous bow and looks at you a bit nervously.
"I w-was just waiting for you to get back, Aoi." Swallowing, she has the countenance of a person who's just been find out for some dirty secret. "I'll be going now, so I'll just grab a change of clothes and g-go..."
Smiling, you walk over and give her a pat on the head before messing her bed-head hair up even more.
"It's fine to enjoy yourself, you're a guest here, not a servant."
"...I... um..." Her face red, she nods with a new found vigor before grabbing a change of clothes out of the drawers. "I-I understand! I'll try to loosen up a little more... I think."
With that, she rushes out of the room, her ghastly companion flushing heavily as it follows after her. Giggling, you put your old set of clothes away and put on some shoes, wondering what you might want to do next.
[ ] Go see if Renko and Maribel are awake yet.
[ ] Go see if your mother is awake yet.
[ ] Wander the halls, to see if anything strange might be going on.
