A Stay-at-home Dad's Restaurant In An Alternate World - Chapter 1346
Mag arrived at Lantisde very soon, and met up with Dexter, the high priest.
Mag asked the merfolk to help him catch the escaped reproductive crayfish in a form of employment. They could exchange 100 beggar’s chicken’s mud casings from him for each reproductive crayfish caught.
Dexter accepted Mag’s request readily, and ordered all the Lantisdeans who could leave Lantisde to go catch the reproductive crayfish.
Taking the crayfish base as the center point, they began to search for the reproductive crayfish outward.
“I received Gina’s letter yesterday. It happened to mention that Mr. Mag had left the restaurant in search of ingredients. I didn’t expect you to come to the sea.” Dexter smiled at Mag.
“The sea has countless ingredients. It’s a fantastic place to come looking for inspirations and ingredients,” Mag replied with a smile. What could he do? The system ordered him to come here. He simply had no choice but to come.
“What other ingredients do you need? If it’s inconvenient for you, we could be of service for you,” Dexter said. To the Lantisdeans, Mag was like the savior. The mud casings that he created were saving Lantisde from the abyss currently.
“Currently, I only need to catch those escaped reproductive crayfish, and then lock them back into my crayfish’s base.” Mag shook his head. With Lantisde’s help, he felt much more confident about completing his mission. After all, the Lantisdeans were the real ruler of the sea.
Crayfish… were just crayfish.
He told Dexter his current address and left. He drove his submarine back to Carapace Island after telling the merfolk that they could go ash.o.r.e to pa.s.s them to him after they caught the reproductive crayfish.
On his way back, Mag ran into a group of crayfish, so he caught all 500-odd of them with a fis.h.i.+ng net. There were even three reproductive crayfish among them.
“I’m rich with this trip.” Mag turned around to look at the crayfish in the tank, and suddenly felt the charm of fis.h.i.+ng. Since the rental time of two hours was not up yet, Mag went sweeping around crazily in the submarine underwater, and caught more than 1000 crayfish.
“System, why don’t you help me rear these crayfish first?” Mag said in his heart on his journey back.
“I know that I can’t take no more; It ain’t no lie; I want to see you out that door; Baby bye bye bye. Get lost!”
“You’re really f*cking genius…” Mag raised his eyebrow. He had no choice, then. He docked the submarine and leaped out of it, carrying the 1000-odd crayfish with one hand and the three reproductive crayfish with the other.
Along the way, all the fishermen who were out fis.h.i.+ng were staring at Mag’s giant net with a shocked expression.
A fisherman gulped with wide eyes when he saw Mag walk by, and commented, “This boss… is really somebody.”
Mag sighed in his heart. He also wanted to keep a low profile, but his power wouldn’t allow him to.
The Ten Kings Palace’s gold vault was robbed in bright daylight, and its five halls were bombed. They were thoroughly disgraced.
Hence, there were Ten Kings Palace’s personnel searching for suspects on the streets everywhere. Some demons were even executed on the spot right away.
Mag avoided the Ten Kings Palace’s lackeys, and returned to the restaurant with the crayfish.
He saw Irina and Amy digging a hole in a corner as soon as he entered the yard.
“What are you two doing?” Mag put down the crayfish and looked at the two of them in confusion.
“There.” Amy pouted her lips, indicating to Mag to look behind the fake mountains.
Mag poked his head over, and there were three demons who were all bundled up and had rags stuffed into their mouths staring back at him in fear. From the epaulettes on their shoulders, he could see that they were from Ten Kings Palace.
“You were exposed?” Mag asked Irina, who had already dug out a hole that was big enough to bury three men, as he turned around.
“No. But they wanted to search the restaurant and attempted to touch me and Amy.” Irina shook her head.
“This hole is so artistically dug.” Mag reached out to grab the three demons, who were struggling hysterically because of fear, out from the fake mountains and threw them into the hole. They knocked them out with the shovel, and began filling up the hole with soil. Afterward, they stepped on the filled-up hole to make it nice and even.
“If I water them, would a nest of demons grow out from it?” Amy asked with antic.i.p.ation as she poured water onto it with a cup.
“Maybe.” Mag smiled and nodded.
“But, Father, where did you go to catch so many shrimpies?” Amy asked Mag excitedly. She only noticed all the crayfish that Mag carried back now.
“Then, can I have two big shrimpies tonight?” Amy asked expectantly.
“Of course, Little Amy, you can have as many crayfish as you want.” Mag patted Amy’s head indulgently before he tossed all the crayfish into the pond.
The delicious garlic crayfish was loved by many customers. The customers were already lining up at the restaurant’s door before 5pm, which was the time for dinner service.
The crayfish weren’t limited, and they could have as many as they wanted. But the crayfish were all freshly caught by the fishermen, so the service would end whenever the crayfish in the pond were all sold.
The demons that had a great appet.i.te could have a whole pot of crayfish in one go. If there were many of these demons, those demons lining up at the back wouldn’t even have the chance to eat the crayfish. Hence, many demons chose to come and line up early.
However, what made the customers delighted was that the pond in the corner was filled with crayfish today. It seemed like all the customers could get to enjoy a crayfish tonight.
“Thirteen-spices crayfish. It’s a new flavor. Try it.” Mag came out with a few plates of crayfish. The aroma washed all over them, and the eyes of the three ladies sitting at the table widened.
“Father is so formidable. You created a new flavor of big shrimpy again,” Amy praised as she hugged Mag and gave him a kiss on the cheek when he was putting down the plates.
“Father will make you even more shrimpies with different flavors when we get back home.” Mag smiled and glowed after he was praised by his little sweetheart.
“Mm-hm. Then I will have two big ones.” Amy extended two fair fingers and bent them like rabbit’s ears.
“You can have as many as you want.” Mag nodded. He couldn’t say no to her at all.
Jane watched this scene with envy. She couldn’t remember her father at all. She only heard from her mother that he had been beaten to death while trying to save them from the other demons. After that, she had never seen many demons who were nice to their children, so she didn’t envy others for having a father.
But she was a little envious about the sweet and warm feeling when she saw how Boss doted on Ay.
If her father had been still alive, maybe he would’ve doted on her like that too.
“Mm, this flavor is not bad!” Irina picked up the crayfish and peeled off the sh.e.l.l before dipping the meat into the gravy and taking a big bite.
Numb, spicy, fresh, fragrant, sweet, tender, crispy… All the exquisite tastes blossomed in her mouth, and made her eyes light up.
