1113 Hair Gave One ConfidenceMichael, who was testing Rex deliberately, was taken aback. He turned and looked at Rolan, who was holding a spoon and eating happily. As the lord of the Gray Temple, Rolan always had a strict and stately image, but he was actually eating engrossingly in a situation like this.
Is it really so delicious? Michael wondered. Since he realized Rex didn’t acknowledge him, he picked up the spoon and drank the soup.
The meat aroma of the broth was releasing itself crazily in his mouth. At that moment, there was almost no language in his mind that could describe this strong impact.
After that momentary astonishment, the rich layers of the flavors began to unravel. The layers were on top of one another, but they didn’t interfere with one another. The freshness of the seafood, the wildness of the beasts… All these made him immersed in the taste.
This… This is simply too delish?! After swallowing that sip of soup, there was only one thought left in Michael’s mind. He had never had such a scrumptious soup before. It totally subverted what he understood about soups.
A sip of soup could actually have so many rich layers of taste and make one so impressed.
Vivian is definitely going to love it. Furthermore, it seems rather nourishing. I will bring her along next time, Michael thought. His first thought was always his daughter.
He took a sip, and then had a bite of the meat.
The meat with a rich aroma was tender but not mushy, as if it was simmered with the best wine in this world. It got even more scrumptious as he chewed.
Such delicacy is indeed rare. Rare… Michael was astonished in his heart. A mouthful of soup followed by a mouthful of meat. He was totally immersed in the scrumptious taste of ‘Buddha jumps over the wall’.
Lord Rolan at the side was in a similar situation.
So, the city lord and the lord of the Gray Temple are no different from us when they come in contact with good food. Miya was sizing up the two big shots secretly in her heart. The way they were immersed in the delicious food was very down-to-earth.
Five 10th-tier powerhouses were gathered in this tiny restaurant. The city lord of Chaos City, the lord of the Gray Temple, the Lord of Fire, the Lord of Ice, and the Hairless Monk, Rex, who had just escaped from the Bastie Prison.
The five of them were sitting and eating dinner together harmoniously because of a bowl of ‘Buddha jumps over the wall’. If one didn’t see this scene for himself, no one would believe it.
…Just like the people of the Gray Temple and Wisely who were waiting anxiously outside the restaurant. They were waiting for the command from within the restaurant before they launched an attack. They would never have thought that their lords were totally absorbed in the scrumptiousness of ‘Buddha jumps over the wall’ helplessly.
Rex’s spoon touched the bottom of the terracotta bowl and made a soft sound. There was only a thin layer of soup in the empty bowl.
He lifted the terracotta bowl and drank every drop of the soup left before putting down the bowl and wiping away the sweat on his head. Then, he seriously said to Mag, “Thank you for your hospitality.”
Michael and Rolan put down their spoons simultaneously and looked at Rex. One of them was holding the longsword that he placed vertically on the side, while the other grabbed his wand secretly.
Given the Hairless Monk’s temperament, asking him to surrender peacefully was an unrealistic request, but they also couldn’t watch him leave just like that.
Krassu and Urien put down their spoons too.
The originally harmonious scene became tense instantly.
“Let’s talk…” Mag cleared his throat as he prepared to make his peace talk. After all, this was his restaurant. If these guys started a fight here, Mamy Restaurant would have to be rebuilt.
Just at this moment, Amy looked at Rex and blinked as she pointed at his head with disbelief and exclaimed, “Wow, Grandpa Bald Guy, you have hair!”
Everyone was taken aback, and then their gazes landed on Rex’s head uncontrollably.
The head that was as smooth as a hard boiled egg had fine hair growing out of the scalp!
The hairs resembled little grass that broke out of the soil after the spring rain. They were so short that they were almost negligible. They were as fine as baby’s hair, and had just a tiny tinge of blackness.
However, the hair was really there!
“The Hairless Monk is growing hair?”
Everyone was stunned, including Michael and Rolan.
The Hairless Monk got his name due to his baldness. Ever since his appearance, he had been hairless. Even after staying in the Bastie Prison for 100 years, he was still hairless after he got out, but he actually had hair now?
Shocking! After dining at a certain restaurant, the Hairless Monk began to grow a head full of luscious hair. This restaurant is going to be the hot spot for young men dealing with hair loss!
Mag saw the expressions on their faces, and came up with the headlines for tomorrow’s newspapers in his heart.
The System’s so-called advanced delicacy was meant for solving the balding problem for middle-aged men?
Even though balding was an irritating issue, it basically wasn’t an incurable disease, but this was, after all, an advanced recipe that he had spent some effort to procure. Wasn’t this a little frivolous?
“H-hair?” Rex was stunned after hearing that. He reached out to touch his scalp, and the softness that he touched seemed to have electrocuted him and made him retrieve his hand. After a moment, he reached out and touched his scalp again. Although it was only a short layer, the feel was totally different from the usual bald feeling. This was the first time that he had felt the existence of hair on his scalp since he was born.
His hand was trembling, and he couldn’t help but feel agitated.
After he barely survived, he was ridiculed and humiliated because he didn’t have hair, which made him different from normal people.
And now, he was going to have hair!
If he had hair, then he would look no different from normal people, right?
After eating the tasty ‘Buddha jumps over the wall’, Rex felt something had changed in his heart. Someone seemed to have planted a small tree in his originally empty heart, and now sunshine seemed to be present too. A rebirth was waiting for him.
“I am not going back to prison,” Rex said to Michael calmly.
“We have to bring you back,” Michael said calmly too and stood up, grasping his sword. Rolan was grasping his wand too.
Rex placed his hands on the table. After a glance at Rolan, he said, “If you must send me back, I will destroy the entire Bastie Prison. If you release me, I can join Chaos City and promise to obey the laws. I will protect Chaos City.”
Contemplative looks appeared on Rolan’s and Michael’s face.
Given Rex’s capabilities, destroying the Bastie Prison wasn’t an empty promise.
If he joined Chaos City and became the protector of Chaos City… It was a very tempting offer under the current volatile situation.
“The Hairless Monk was already dead 100 years ago.” Rex stood and looked at Amy. His face with rough edges moved a little and a smile was revealed. “Now, I am Rex. Rex with hair.”
Hair gave one confidence.
