Chapter 1683: Ingredient Research Sample
“Congratulations, Host. Mana Hot Pot Restaurant’s new customers had surpassed 1000 on its opening day!
“The mutton soup recipe is released! Could the host please learn it as soon as possible!”
After Mag tucked Amy into bed, the system’s voice appeared in his mind.
“A mission that is completed without having to do anything.” Mag curled his lips slightly, and sarcastically said, “System, please give me such missions in the future. I’m really bored if there are no mission for me to do.”
“Given that the Host has passed the earliest stages of culinary skills training, this system’s mission vault will be upgraded to intermediate difficulty automatically. Please look forward to it!” said the system.
“Don’t! Bro, I’m just joking.” Mag panicked instantly. He had never expected that the missions had different levels of difficulties and those he had accomplished before were the easy ones. Then, what were the difficult ones?
“Is Little Amy asleep?” Irina appeared in the room. After taking a look at Amy, who was already sleeping soundly with Ugly Duckling in her arms, she turned to Mag. “Then, we should set off now.”
“Are we going to the Thunderstorm Mountains tonight?” Mag stared at Irina in bewilderment.
“Yes. Today, Krassu and I went to the east to eradicate a village that believed in the devil. According to their leader, many of their companions are converging in the Thunderstorm Mountains now. However, as his ranking is too low, he didn’t know why.” Irina nodded.
“You annihilated the whole village?” asked Mag.
Irina shook her head. “No. I informed Rolan, and the Gray Temple arrested all of them. They were locked up individually and interrogated.”
“Hold on for a minute. Let me go and change.” Mag nodded and didn’t ask any more questions. He went back to his room to change, and then put on that face-altering mask.
“Let’s go. They’re already waiting for us beyond the city.” Irina held onto Mag’s arm gently. A faint golden beam lit up underneath their feet, and they disappeared from the room.
On a mountaintop beyond the city, Krassu chuckled at Mag and Irina, who were sitting on the griffin’s back. “Woah, you two are so loving that we cannot make ourselves hop on.”
“Ah Zi is a giant magic beast, and moreover the fastest one.” Irina smiled. “Are you two sure that you don’t want to hop on?”
“Of course we are getting on. It’s not often that we get a chance like this.” Krassu hopped onto the griffin’s back without any hesitation.
Urien hopped into the griffin too.
“Ah Zi, let’s go to the Thunderstorm Mountains,” Mag instructed the mount before greeting Krassu and Urien.
He could see these two almost every day, but it still felt different when he was talking to them using another identity and a mask. He had to sound and act like another person.
“Hehe, Alex. The two of us haven’t sparred for three to four years. Should we have a sparring match?” Krassu chuckled at Mag.
“Three against one?” Irina and Ah Zi turned to look at Krassu at the same time.
Krassu froze before he resignedly said, “You guys win.”
He really had no hope of winning if it was three against one.
“Your body doesn’t seem to be fully recovered yet.” Urien looked at Mag with narrowed eyes.
Mag felt his heart drop. Urien was indeed a 10th-tier great magic caster. He could actually see that his power hadn’t fully recovered yet. One had to know that the pretense which Mag put on and the aura he emitted was way above the usual 9th-tier aura. After reining it in slightly, it shouldn’t be easily suspected by others.
“It’s just a tiny problem,” Mag calmly said without denying anything.
“You killed Benson, so it proves that the problem isn’t big.” Urien nodded without pushing further.
Mag raised his eyebrows slightly. Amy’s master indeed had some character. However, it was also great that he didn’t pursue the matter, as it saved him the explanation.
“Oh, yes. Alex never needs to explain to anyone. Mag’s eyes brightened, and he instantly stopped making up reasons in his mind.
“We’re going to enter the cave to investigate the situation underground today.” Krassu stopped smiling, and put on a severe expression. “Many anomalies happened at the Thunderstorm Mountains recently. Many unidentified people began to gather there. I’m afraid that has something to do with the seal being broken. We have to cut off the source, or else it might bring on even bigger troubles.”
“How to reseal that thing is a big problem. I’ve used ice to seal that gap previously. Currently, it doesn’t seem like it’s effective,” said Urien in a hoarse voice.
“Why do we have to reseal it? Can’t we kill it straight away?” Irina asked perplexedly.
“Judging from the evil power that it released, we might not have the power to do that.” Krassu shook his head. “If killing it had been a simple thing to do, the people in the past wouldn’t have had to try so hard to seal it.”
Mag suggested, “Irina could try with her Holy Light Technique. Physical methods and usual magic might not be able to cause any actual harm to it.”
“We’ll decide what to do after we see it. It could really be a formidable fellow.” Krassu smiled again. “I have not met such a proper opponent for a very long time.”
The griffin soon reached the vicinity of the Thunderstorm Mountains. Mag made Ah Zi reduce its speed and altitude and fly close to the mountain range.
The Thunderstorm Mountains got their name from frequent thunderstorms. Winter was the thunderstorms’ calm period, but they could still see lightning among the mountain range and caves. Some even struck rocks and trunks, setting off glaring lights and loud sounds.
However, they could see 10-odd campfires in this mountain range which should’ve been deserted.
“Apart from the dragon race, all the races are present. There are about 500 of them,” Urien said as he looked down.
“There are indeed many of them. Seems like they have some ways to communicate with that fellow who is sealed,” Krassu said with a frown.
“They are just a bunch of weaklings. We’ll round them up and beat them up, and we will know everything,” Irina said nonchalantly. The number of people was meaningless to them.
“That’s true. Then, let’s split up for action. Each of us will handle four.” Krassu dropped down straight away with his magic caster’s staff.
“Left those four to the west to me.” A blue light flicked under Urien’s feet, and he disappeared too.
“I’ll leave that one down there to you. Leave the other seven to me.” Irina pointed at that biggest bonfire down below before she transformed into a beam of golden light, and flew toward the other bonfire.
“Ah Zi, wait for me over here. I’ll go… steal some oranges for you.” Mag also jumped down directly with his sword.
After free-falling from hundreds of meters up in the sky, the longsword almost sliced a tree into half before Mag landed lightly on the ground.
Let me see what these fellows are gathering here for. Mag kept his sword and approached the bright bonfire 200 meters away. Weird chanting began to get clearer and clearer, sounding like the devil’s growling. The atmosphere was very eerie.
“Ding! New mission: some powerful unknown organism is detected close to the host. Could the host please obtain 500 grams of flesh from that organism within 24 hours for this system as an ingredient research sample.”
Right at this moment, the system’s voice appeared in Mag’s head.
