Chapter 1173: You Are An Exceptional Chef

“I apologize for the incomplete service . ” Mag kept the empty bowls with a smile, and asked Rom, “I wonder is Master Rom satisfied with this dinner?”


Rom nodded with a complex expression . After a moment of hesitation, he asked, “I want to know, what fish is this? Why could I remember the things that I have forgotten after eating it?”

“This is the Fat Head Fish caught in the extreme north territory of the Roth Empire . It is also called the Icebreaker Fish . Fish head has the effect of nourishing the brain naturally, and this fat head fish’s head is much bigger than normal fish . And since it lives in an extreme cold environment, it might be the reason why it has some special effects,” Mag said after pondering for a while .

“So that is the reason . Not everyone is able to venture to the extreme north . ” Rom suddenly understood, and then he felt lost again .

After eating that steamed fish head with diced hot red peppers, he felt he had sobered up totally . Everything that happened in the past one year had become crystal clear, and he no longer felt trapped when he was thinking .

This was obviously obtained after eating that fish .

This crystal clear, sober feeling was extremely precious to him after living in a blur for two years .

However, he obviously wasn’t able to catch this big headed fish from the extreme north by himself; hence, the hope of eating this fish frequently to maintain his soberness was naturally crushed .

Mag looked at Rom’s rapidly changing expression, and could already guess what he was thinking . Smiling, he said, “If Master Rom wants to eat this steamed fish head with diced hot red peppers, you can come and look for me at Chaos City . I have a restaurant there . If I have a cleaver that I can use, I will be able to provide this steamed fish head with diced hot red peppers every day . ”

“Chaos City . ” Rom was taken aback . He pondered as he looked at his workshop . He had stayed here for over 400 years, which was almost his entire life . He had also thought for many times that he was going to die here .

He had never thought about leaving this place, no matter if it was during wartime or the peace .


Maybe it was an attachment, or maybe it was fear .

The outside world was strange to him . He didn’t have friends, only customers .

He had never left Issen Castle, and he didn’t know the world beyond it .

This old workshop was seen as the honor and holy place of a weaponsmith . It was his most glamorous outfit and also his sealed fortress .

And now, Mag was inviting him with the steamed fish head with diced hot red peppers .

Instead of dying in confusion, why don’t I change a place to live and die sober on the forging table? Rom’s gaze became determined, and the workshop that he had always held dear became worthless instantly .

Rom turned around and seriously asked Mag, “I will be able to eat steamed fish head with diced hot red peppers every day if I go to Chaos City?”

“If Master Rom could come and line up early, I don’t see a problem . ” Mag nodded with a smile . Of course, this richest weaponsmith in the world didn’t have to consider the issue of money .

Rom nodded slightly without a word, but he had already decided in his heart .

“Master Rom, about the bet we had earlier…” Mag probed .



“You won . I have to admit that the steamed fish head with diced hot red peppers you made was the most scrumptious food I have ever eaten . It was also the most special food . I want to apologize for insolent words earlier . You are an exceptional chef,” Rom said gravely .

“Master Rom is an honest person,” Mag said smilingly .

A smile also appeared on Rom’s face as he said without any hesitation, “What kind of cleaver would you like? I can forge it and give it to you by tomorrow . ”

“This is the drawing . I need a cleaver like this . ” Mag took out a drawing and passed it to Rom .

“Seems like you were very confident that you could convince me from the very beginning . ” Rom received the drawing with a smile . He stuffed it into his pocket after taking a quick glance . A cleaver was a piece of cake to him .

“It’s not easy for me to come to Issen Castle . It would have been a wasted trip if I couldn’t have convinced you, Master Rom,” Mag replied, still with a smile . Even though he had to stay for one more day, the mission was considered completed in advance .

“We have finished the fish head, but I still have liquor . Do you want a sip of it?” Rom took the botas de vino from his waist and passed to Mag .

“I can only drink one sip with Master Rom because I have to take care of my child . ” Mag took the botas de vino and tilted his head back, taking a big gulp . The liquor was strong, but not very tasty . Then, he returned the botas de vino to Rom .

“Since this is the case, I will not force you . ” Rom took the botas de vino and took two big gulps . After wiping his mouth, he asked, “Where will you be staying tonight?” His gaze landed on Amy . This was the coldest time in winter, and the little girl was too young to stay overnight in the open .

“We are going to check into the Tam Inn over there for the night,” Mag said as he pointed to the front .



Rom waved and said, “Alright . You guys can go over there right now . Come to get your cleaver on tomorrow’s evening . ”

“Goodbye, Master Rom,” Mag said, and kept the utensils that he had washed into his backpack . He took a burning branch from the fire to use it as a torch, held Amy’s hand, and walked down the street .

“Goodbye, Old Grandpa . ” Amy hugged Ugly Duckling and waved to Rom . Then, she skipped down the street with Mag .

The street that wasn’t very wide was paved neatly with stones . Every stone was cut into almost identical squares and pieced together perfectly . No visible seams could be seen .

The houses at the two sides of the street were also neatly built with stones . The dwarves’ exceptional skills and rigorous character could be seen from them .

It wasn’t the starry sky above the streets . Instead, there were black rocks which were just dozens of meters away from the ground . It made it difficult for people to discover it under the cover of the dark sky .

However, there would be a big hole for the air to flow in and out and provide illumination at every short interval . They made the interior of Issen Castle seem less closed up and oppressive .

This huge building complex that was built and extended over thousands of years by generations of dwarves was considered to be of superlative craftsmanship . There was no way it could be duplicated at all .

The war of the species had destroyed almost half of the castle, but after 100 years of peace, the Issen Castle was now even more spectacular and arduous . It was deemed as one of the most difficult to breach castles in this world .

Mag led Amy to the end of the street . The cold wind extinguished the torch that he was holding in his hand totally .



“This way . ” Mag looked around and saw a boisterous tavern at the end of the street . Sounds of laughter and discussions could be heard coming from there . Opposite of the tavern was the Tam Inn that they were looking for . The metal signboard was shaking vigorously in the wind, and the door was tightly shut . He could see the interior was lit up warmly through the windows, and there was also a courtyard at the side where there were many carriages and horses .

Mag went to knock on the door, which opened very quickly . A hunchbacked old dwarf cracked open the door slightly, and warily asked Mag, “Do you want to stay here for the night?”

“Yes . My daughter and I would like to spend a night in this inn . ” Mag nodded .

In the tavern across, there were customers of all species . They were drinking hard liquor and talking and laughing loudly .

“Lord Hadeng, did you manage to see Master Rom today?” the bartender asked Hadeng curiously . Those around them also looked over when they heard that . In Issen Castle, everyone was interested in anything about Master Rom .
