A Stay-at-home Dad's Restaurant In An Alternate World - Chapter 1095
1095 Otherwise, You Are No Different From A pig?
“Gina, do your best to assist Mr. Mag. Do not behave like a princess. He is the benefactor of Lantisde,” the high priest said to Gina with hydroacoustic communication.
“Yes.” Gina nodded. How would she dare to behave like a princess? As long as she could stay in the restaurant with Mr. Mag, she was willing to be a member of the service staff.
She felt her heart was as sweet as honey when she gazed at the smiling Mag. So, Mr. Mag was willing to make her stay too. Could he have feelings for her too?
“Mr. Mag, farewell,” the high priest said to Mag and nodded in acknowledgement to the ladies on the boat. His gaze paused when it landed on Amy. He pondered for a while before taking out a small teardrop-shaped blue crystal. He gave it a slight wave, and it became a bracelet with a red thread.
The high priest gave the bracelet to Amy as he smilingly said, “This is a hydrophobic crystal. Young lady, you can go anywhere underwater as you please with it. It is a little something for you as our first meeting gift.”
What an adorable little girl who looked just like a little fairy from heavens.
“This is a valuable gift.” Mag’s eyes lit up, and he quickly made Amy express her thanks.
“What a pretty little bracelet. Thank you, Grandpa Merman,” Amy, who took the bracelet, said happily. She put it on her wrist immediately, and gazed at that water-droplet against the sun. There was a tiny fish inside which seemed to be swimming under the sunlight.
“This bracelet that Grandpa Merman gave you allows you to breathe underwater. You will be just like the fishes,” Mag said to Amy.
Amy’s eyes lit up, and she curiously asked, “Really? Then, will I become a little fish? Or, I will become a little mermaid?”
“Yes, you can put it that way too.” Mag smiled and nodded.
After waving goodbye to the high priest and the merfolk powerhouses, Mag turned toward the ladies who were dumbfounded for the whole process, and declared, “Gina will still be staying with us at the restaurant.”
“Gina is staying. This is great!” Miya exclaimed joyously before hugging Gina who just transformed her tail into legs and boarded the boat.
Everyone else had a smile on their face too. The recent departures of Sally and Shirley made them rather sad. If Gina left as well, the ladies would be sad for an even longer period of time.
“Thank you, everyone,” Gina said smilingly too. She could sense everyone’s love for her. It made her feel touched and glad.
Ugly Duckling suddenly poked its head out from a corner and meowed at Gina. It licked its teeth as if it, too, was very happy.
Gina was startled, and almost fell into the water from the edge of the boat. She made everyone laugh.
It was only noon, so Mag wasn’t in a hurry to return. He took out the seafood that he had just caught, and prepared for another round of seafood party.
After enjoying a scrumptious seafood feast, Mag and the ladies were taking a break on the boat before preparing for their return journey. Waves appeared on the sea’s surface, and two merfolk appeared, carrying a wooden box. They respectfully said to Mag, “Mr. Mag, the high priest sent us to show you a sample of the shark’s fins and shark’s lips. May we ask, are they up to your standards?”
Mag took the wooden box and opened it up to have a look. There were a pair of crystal clear shark’s fins and a pair of fresh shark’s lips lying on crushed ice. Their cuttings were of very high standards.
“Very good. We can just use them as our standard.” Mag nodded with satisfaction. The merfolk were efficient people. He liked them.
“Congratulations, Host: you have successfully found a suitable shark’s fins and shark’s lips supplier and established a stable supply chain. Furthermore, you have taken an important step in your journey to become the God of Cookery!
“The settlement of the mission reward: 0.5 strength point awarded.”
Right at this moment, the system’s voice appeared in Mag’s head.
Perfect. Mag’s eyes lit up. After this 0.5 strength point was activated, he would be able to advance to 8th-tier officially.
8th-tier, a watershed tier.
Only after advancing to the 8th-tier power could he be considered as having advanced combat abilities.
After a knight’s power reached the 8th-tier, he could hack in half a rock that could only be surrounded by three men linking their arms together with a single strike. His power and speed would be better than a cheetah’s. Coupled with the right techniques, he would be untraceable.
And to Mag, the most important part was that he could finally use the really awesome techniques in his mind—battle techniques!
A magic caster’s domain and a knight’s battle technique were both powers given after they reached the advanced level.
The battle techniques had already transcended beyond the range of the combat techniques, and each individual knight would have their own distinct differentiation.
Some knights’ battle techniques were given the ability to strike across an empty space. For example, long-range blade attacks.
Meanwhile, others fortified their combat techniques, for example:
Alex’s battle techniques were even more special. After all, there wouldn’t be another knight who was as awesome as him in this world.
He chose to fortify his sword.
Although it looked simple and brainless, it made the operability of the sword become immensely powerful.
And because of this, he came up with countless amazing methods to use his sword.
For example, flying swords.
Of course, he wasn’t like those people on the path of cultivation to gain spiritual enlightenment.
Instead, he was using his terrifying control power and battle technique to control the longsword, and let it achieve the ability of a flying sword. The usage was similar to darts, but even more abstruse.
Of course, he seldom used that trick, and not many people knew about it.
However, it indeed was very awesome.
Mag suppressed the commotion in his heart, and indicated to the System that he wasn’t in a hurry to activate it. He bade farewell to the two merfolk, and then shut the icebox. He would be able to make his first pot of ‘Buddha jumps over the wall’ with the shark’s lips and fins that he was bringing back. Of course, he wasn’t going to waste them.
“Alright, we’ve already had a day of fun. It’s time to embark on our return journey,” Mag said with a smile as he stopped Amy who was about to toss Ugly Duckling into the sea after tying the hydrophobic crystal to its neck.
“Meow, meow, meow~”
Ugly Duckling extended two little paws to grab onto Mag’s arms as if it was holding onto its last lifeline. Its eyes were full of fear.
“It’s alright, Ugly Duckling. With this hydrophobic crystal, you will be able to breathe underwater just like the fishes. You can only be considered a real duck after you learn how to swim.” Amy squashed Ugly Duckling’s fat cheeks as she disdainfully said, “Otherwise, you are no different from a pig.”
“Meow~” Ugly Duckling whined pitifully and stared at its own fat belly in silence.
“Alright, it can swim on our next trip. It’s time for us to go home.” Mag saved Ugly Duckling with a smile. He could empathize with the fear of the sea Ugly Duckling had.
“Alright, then we will swim after we get back. That fountain in the square is good enough too,” Amy mumbled and nodded after giving it some thought.
Ugly Duckling, which thought it had escaped from an ordeal, immediately rolled its eyes over and fainted in Mag’s arms.
Everyone packed up and went home on Elizabeth, who transformed into a Frost Dragon.
That wooden boat handcrafted by Firis was docked on an isolated island nearby so they could use it again for their next trip on the sea.
Miya stretched out her arms, and joyfully said, “What an interesting day~”
