Sophie: Mister, you’re incredible! I never expected to see such a crazy hype happening in one week after we adopted your advice!
Icy: Our eatery business thrives again...I’ m so touched!
Shalnark: Then treat me soy pudding and ice-cream on the house as my reward.
Tycoon: Damn! Why are all my customers coming to this shop? What the hell is going on here?
When Shalnark was putting the spoon into his mouth, a chunky man barged into the eatery, ruining his beautiful dessert time.
Sophie: Sir, please queue up and wait outside like everyone else does. The end of the line is at the next block.
Icy: You’re gonna disturb others if you keep standing here.
Sophie and Icy threw sarcasm at the tycoon as their rival came to their place, while the pissed off tycoon trying to assault Sophie. Shalnark, as a witness, blocked the tycoon’s way as if standing up for Sophie. He pressed the tycoon hard on his shoulders to force him to sit.
Shalnark: Sir, since you’re so desperate for the dessert, I’ll let you take my seat.
Tycoon: You...Humph! Show me what you’ve got! Bring me your signature dish!
Sophie: Here you go! The sweet, delicious Divine Soy Pudding with Holylight Cantaloupe Ice-cream!
The tycoon put a spoon of dessert into his mouth——The coolness of ice-cream spread in his throat; rich sweetness of soy pudding filled his taste buds. The overwhelming tasting experience made him spill the deepest thoughts out of his mouth.
Tycoon: T-This is super tasty! It’s way out of my league.
Customer: Their desserts are freshly made every day. You sell cheaper desserts, but I got diarrhea last time I ate your dessert!
Tycoon: Shut up! My shop is clean and safe. Someone must have set me up!
Just as Shalnark expected, the pissed tycoon returned together with a burly bodyguard, scaring all customers away.
Sophie: What? Icy, wh-what should we do now?
Icy: I have the same question too!
Tycoon: Humph! Smash their store! And also that man. Kick his ass!
Tycoon commanded while scowling at Shalnark. As soon as the bodyguard received the order, he sprinted towards Shalnark, swinging his punch.
Shalnark: Too slow.
Shalnark effortlessly dodged the punch and gave a sweep kick in return, tripping the bodyguard. When Shalnark was about to end his life, his action was frozen all of a sudden.
Shalnark: “Phew, luckily I stopped in time. If I kill someone in the shop, no one will come here ever again.”
Shalnark recalled the fatal blow. Instead, he took out his phone and stuck the antennae into the bodyguard, taking control of his mind.
Tycoon: Hey! What’s your deal!? I’ve spent a fortune to hire you. Kick that man’s— —Whoa! W-Why are you lifting me up!?
Shalnark: How annoying. Throw him into the sea.
Controlling the bodyguard with Nen power, Shalnark made him toss the tycoon into the sea. While the tycoon was struggling in the water, Shalnark warned him coldly.
Shalnark: If you ever plot anything against that eatery again, you won’t get to see the next sunrise.
Tycoon: O-Okay. I-I get it!
Shalnark unplugged the antennae to disarm the control. Once the bodyguard regained consciousness, he fled the scene together with the tycoon. Next day in the morning, Sophie and Icy greeted Shalnark excitedly.
Sophie: That rich man closed down his business. Now we can run our eatery without threats!
Icy: All thanks to you.
Shalnark: You’re welcome.
At this moment, a blue sparkle flashed, revealing Madhead.
Madhead: Thanks for the effort! I’ll teleport you back to your world now!
Shalnark: Wait. I still wanna take...
Madhead sent Shalnark back through a portal before he could finish the sentence.
Shalnark: a walk around this town...Huh? What did I just say?
