Chapter 1675: You Will Get Your Little Sister Sooner Or Later
Vicennio pondered with a frown for a while before he was suddenly enlightened. With a glum face, he said, “There’s too much homework, and I can’t ever finish it. This isn’t for the faint-hearted.”
“This is how the world works. Either you drown or you die from the drought.” Randy patted Vicennio on his shoulders as he consoled him, “Bro, you still got to take care of your body, or else someone else would be carrying your burden for you one day.
Vicennio paled before he flipped open the menu, and ordered two more pig’s brains.
“Can this thing nourish that part?” exclaimed Randy.
“No, I need to calm down.” Vicennio shook his head.
Randy gave him a thumbs-up silently.
Gjerj and his family entered the hot pot restaurant too, and they went straight toward Harrison’s table. When they were about halfway to that table, Gjerj saw Mag and the gang sitting nearby, and he made a turn toward their table. He chuckled. “Boss Mag, you guys came here for hot pot today too.”
“Yes. We came to give our support on the opening day.” Mag nodded with a smile.
“Little Sister Christy~” Amy had already leaped up from her chair, and lifted her hands up at Gjerj. “Can I hold her for a moment, please?”
“Big Sister Amy. Hug, I want a hug~!” Parber let go of Parmer’s hand, and waddled toward Amy with an ecstatic smile.
“Stop!” Amy extended her hand, and pressed it against Parber’s forehead. She shook her head at him, who had stretched out his arms. “I refuse.”
Parber’s smile froze instantly, and his lips trembled before he turned around, ran into Parmer’s arms, and aggrievedly cried, “Big Brother, Big Sister Amy refused to hug me again. I want to be a girl, I want to be a girl…”
Parmer patted his little brother’s back with resignation.
“Come, there you are.” Gjerj handed Christy to Amy carefully. He only let go after he made sure that she had a firm hold on her.
“Yiya, yiya~” Christy immediately smiled happily when Amy held her, and she made some cute sounds. She was looking at Amy with her bright eyes happily.
Miranda went to pat Parber’s head with a smile, and said to Amy, “Christy doesn’t want her brothers to hold her. It seems like Big Sister Amy is her favorite.”
“Yes, she isn’t that happy when she sees me, either.” Gjerj felt a tinge of envy.
“Perhaps good-looking people like good-looking people too.” Amy smiled. She kissed Christy on her cheek, and made her chuckle happily.
“The little one is getting cuter every day.” Mag looked at Christy in Amy’s arms. This little one was very fair, and she looked like she was wearing a wig with her short blonde hair. She looked extremely cute.
As they were Mamy Restaurant’s regulars, everyone knew Gjerj’s family quite well. Miya even got up to play with Christy, while Gina used a colorful bubble to make Parber stop crying easily and made him happy again.
Gjerj went close to Mag, and said to him in a low voice, “Boss Mag, I got to tell you something. I met a guy who was hijacking your customers at the door earlier. He was promoting the Cassia Hot Pot Restaurant’s promotion about some ‘buy one, get one free’ dishes and free flow of alcohol. I know you wouldn’t care about such low-class competition tactics. I simply wanted to let you know.”
“That actually happened?” Mag furrowed his eyebrows, No wonder the number of customers entering the restaurant had decreased. So it was because someone was pouching them outside.
Perhaps, because Mamy Restaurant had grown very rapidly, and entered into the stage where he didn’t have to worry about the numbers of customers, Mag had never experienced commercial competition before. Even those coming to challenge had come to him directly, and were disposed of by him right after.
This was his first time encountering someone hijacking his customers at the door.
“Enjoy your meal. We go over there first.” Gjerj took Christy from Amy, and led his family toward Harrison’s table.
“Yiya, yiya~” Christy waved her little hand at Amy, as if she was saying goodbye.
“Little Sister Christy is so cute. I like her so much.” Amy sat down again, and asked Mag, “Father, when can I have a little sister of my own?”
All the ladies at the table looked at Mag. If Amy wanted a little sister, then she would need to have a mother first.
“You will get your little sister sooner or later. Come, eat the duck intestine now before it’s overcooked.” Mag put the duck intestine that he had just blanched into Amy’s bowl.
“Wow.” Amy’s attention was indeed instantly attracted by the duck intestine in her bowl, and she began to chew on the crunchy duck intestine.
Could this matter be decided by him? It all depended on when Irina wanted to have… a second baby.
As for that fellow hijacking their customers out there, Mag decided to ignore him after thinking about it briefly. He had made an agreement when Rena earlier that he wouldn’t intervene in the new hot pot restaurant’s matters, and would just be a quiet investor.
Although the other party wasn’t right morally, he was still competing within the legal framework. Mag couldn’t be sending Amy out there to burn him with a fireball.
Such incidents would be happening in the future too, and he believed Rena had the capability to handle them.
However, when he saw the numbers of new customers had not even reached 200 in his mind, he felt like going out there to hack that fellow personally again. If he failed this mission, not only would he lose the mutton soup’s recipe, he still had to go and pick sheep’s dung in that extreme cold place in the northwestern area.
Fricking picking sheep’s dung.
“I think this hot pot is rather nice too. Although there is a slight difference in the soup base, it has a different kind of spiciness. The mushroom soup pot tastes very fresh too. It tastes even more interesting than the bone broth alone. Rena is really super good,” Firis said with respect as sweat beaded on her forehead.
“Yes. The duck intestine and the rest are very fresh too. They are crunchy and tender, which taste super delicious.” Miya nodded with agreement.
“I like this Mala spicy beef the most. It tastes great. It’s spicy, tender, and juicy! And it’s a completely new dish that isn’t even available at Mamy Restaurant!” said Babla with surprise.
“She’s indeed very good as she can keep the ingredients’ cost so low while ensuring the quality of them.” Mag nodded in agreement. Rena didn’t have a system which could supply her with the best ingredients. She had to choose the best ingredients suppliers and buy the best ingredients from them. None of those tasks was easy.
Although there was a slight difference in the food quality with Mamy Restaurant, gaining Miya and the ladies’ approval was enough to prove Rena’s conscientiousness and outstandingness.
A hot pot of this quality that only cost 100 copper coins per person could already be called a business with conscience.
As for the Cassia Hot Pot Restaurant, they had already lost from the moment they started the ‘buy one, get one free’ promotion. Cheap prices weren’t enough to keep the customers. Quality control was the only way to ensure the survival of the food and beverage’s industry.
