He didn’t want to complicate things by buying all sorts of skills.

Min Sung liked to keep it simple.

So Min Sung bought one of the random +50,000 skills, and the rest of his points were spent on the ‘Legendary Magic Output +1’.

When he touched the accept button, the message, ‘Your purchase has been completed’ popped up.

<+900 experience points remaining.>

Min Sung immediately checked his inventory.

He found the two items that he just purchased from the shop.

[Legendary magic output +5]

[Random skill +1]

Right before Min Sung tried to use the ‘Legendary Magic Output +5’ item…

[The Dionysus Gods who gifted Player Min Sung Kang with experience points are nervous.]

[The gods would like to warn you to be more thoughtful.]

[Your number of viewers is increasing. Your current number of viewers is 1200. You have been favorite by 518.]

Min Sung scoffed.

They were definitely obsessed with gambling.

But then again, he was one to talk as someone who bought random items just now.

He saw a system message asking him to accept or deny.

Min Sung quickly touched accept.

[You’re opening all of your Legendary Magic Output +5.]

[Highest 150×2, High, 100×1, Low 10×3, total magic power of +430]

[The gods who gifted Player Min Sung Kang with experience points are happy.]

[Demon King Veld is cheering.]

[You’re being favorited by more viewers.]

Min Sung’s finger proceeded to click on the item ‘random skill’ as if he was ignoring the system messages.

[The Dionysus Gods are nervous.]

[The number of gods watching Player Min Sung Kang has exploded.]

Min Sung looked at the system message and thought.

The more gods that were watching, the more points he could acquire.

He didn’t know about anything else, but it was important to increase the number of gods on his side.

Min Sung stopped himself from touching the skill. He crossed his arms and stared at the random skill inside his item window.

And it was just as he expected.

[The Dionysus Gods are suspicious.]

[Most gods are beginning to understand the player.]

[Your number of viewers is continuing to increase.]

And then a moment later…

[The Dionysus Gods are becoming frustrated.]

When he saw that message, Min Sung realized he had to use his item and touched the ‘random skill.’

A window asking him to accept or reject popped up.

‘Should I drag on some more time?’

Min Sung pretended to think some more and made the gods antsy.

[The Dionysus Gods are urging you to use your item.]

[The gods have gifted you with +3000 points.]

[The gods would like you to hurry.]

Min Sung laughed bitterly.

The gods were just as simple as humans.

Just by dragging on some time, he managed to get more points.

‘This is funny.’

Min Sung smirked and touched ‘accept’.

When he did, a bright blue light flashed intensely.

The light then disappeared before an item popped up in the air.

[You’ve acquired ‘counter barrier’.]

‘Counter barrier?’

Min Sung touched the ‘capabilities’ button in order to check what the item was about.

Counter Barrier: The ability to return one of your opponent’s abilities back to them.

‘Oh, I see.’

In contrast to Min Sung’s calm reaction, the gods were excited.

[The Dionysus Gods can’t believe your luck.]

[Demon King Veld is dancing and cheering.]

[The gods are smiling.]

[The gods are looking forward to your future actions.]

‘But can I drag this on some more?’

Min Sung was so annoyed by all of these system messages about the gods that he looked to see if he could block them, but there was no such setting.

Min Sung clicked his tongue and touched the skill.

[Congratulations. You’ve acquired the counter barrier skill.]

When it came to skills acquired in Beatrice, just imagining the skill in his head, he was able to use it comfortably.

When Min sung closed the shop, he heard a knocking sound.

The door opened to the cat creature poking in.

“The meal is ready. Please come down,” the cat creature said with a little bit of shyness.

“Tell them I’ll be right down.”

“Sure!”

The cat creature nodded and disappeared, and Min Sung sighed.

What would happen if he couldn’t cut down the Iris tree and Earth disappeared?

Min Sung shook his head.

There was no need to imagine it.

He wasn’t going to let that happen.

Min Sung turned off his item window and got off the bed.

***

As soon as he arrived in the back garden, Ho Sung Lee looked quite confident with himself.

He smelled something delicious.

“I feel like I can quit being a hunter and start being a chef, haha,” Ho Sung Lee bragged.

Min Sung ignored him and looked closely at the food that Ho Sung Lee prepared.

The main dish that Ho Sung Lee made was grilled short ribs.

It was clear that it wasn’t just frozen ribs that were heated up.

It was letting off steam, and it looked so moist and soft that it was hard to withstand not putting it in his mouth.

“I’m impressed,” Min Sung said sincerely with his eyes fixed on the ribs.

“Haha, thank you.”

Ho Sung Lee had yet to even taste it himself, but just the sight and smell of the ribs made him understand his confidence.

Other Korean dishes were prepared around the grilled short ribs.

Bright red kimchi as well as other side dishes.

But there was one dish that he didn’t expect.

He thought that the main was the short ribs, but that was just his assumption.

There was another plate next to the ribs.

And inside it was noodles.

“Yes, that’s mixed wheat noodles!”

Ho Sung Lee confidently said.

Min Sung felt his heart sink with shock.

‘Mixed wheat noodles and grilled short ribs?’

‘I’m not sure about this.’

He didn’t think it would go together at first, but the more he looked at it, the more he salivated, and he felt a big grumble roaring from his stomach.

He had to eat it before it got cold.

Min Sung quickly picked up his chopsticks and sat down in his seat.

Ho Sung Lee looked to the cat creature and elf, who were salivating, and gestured for them to eat as well.

“I prepared lots, so help yourselves.”

In response, the cat creature and elf sat down as well.

***

“It’s so good!”

“T-this is delicious!”

The cat creature and elf showed their own reactions to the grilled short ribs.

The cat creature wriggled her ear. She lifted her head into the air. She threw her fist up and her body trembled.

As for the elf, she covered her mouth in shock and stared at the grilled short ribs.

After tasting it himself, Min Sung agreed with their reactions and nodded as well.

It really was that good.

Although it was meat, it was so warm and soft that it melted in his mouth like icecream.

Min Sung looked at the mixed wheat noodles with nervous eyes.

The white noodles were floating above the broth, and on top of the noodles was a red sauce and a boiled egg, making for a beautiful sight.

‘This is too much.’

‘This is really overwhelming.’

Min Sung turned away to take a breath before grabbing the noodles with his chopsticks.

He mixed the noodles around in the red sauce.

Once it was complete, Min Sung slurped the noodles up.

At the same time, his chopsticks moved over to the grilled short ribs.

After putting the grilled short ribs in his mouth as well, Min Sung chewed on it. He closed his eyes and covered his eyes with his hand.

The harmony between the mixed wheat noodles and the ribs was shocking.

The harmony.

He wondered if this was what the word ‘harmony’ was made for.

“Sir, that’s not all.”

Ho Sung Lee proceeded to introduce the hidden menu.

And that was the beef rice soup that was inside the stone bowl.

Min Sung’s eyes jolted wide open as soon as he saw it.

Min Sung was so happy that he almost grabbed Ho Sung Lee by the neck.

He wanted to grab him by the neck and ask why he prepared such a surprise event, but he calmed himself down.

“Put it down in front of me.”

Min Sung shook his chopsticks as if he was impatient.

The thick broth of the beef rice soup contained pepper oil, and the perfect amount of bean sprouts were in it, stimulating his brain cells.

On top of that, the meat gave off so much of a presence that Min Sung almost lost his rationality.

Min Sung immediately grabbed his spoon.

He put the wet beef and bean sprouts into his mouth and slurped the green onions right up.

It was so delicious that Min Sung almost fell into a trance.

He frowned out of joy.

It was so good that he could faint.

‘What a refreshing combination.’

“This is the best, Ho Sung.”

Min Sung didn’t hold back on the compliments and went back to the mixed wheat noodles and the grilled short ribs.

He then went back to the bean sprouts, onions, and beef, along with the thick beef broth that he spooned over and over into his belly.

Min Sung checked the list of items on his newly upgraded shop.

Since it was upgraded to the max, the list of items he could buy with his experience points was vast and impressive.

But there were only two items that caught Min Sung’s attention.

[Legendary Magic Output +1 (Either low, mid, or high at random)/ +1. Costs 1000 points each]

[Skill: (Random) Either low, mid, high, highest, legendary, or mythical. Costs +50,000 points]

Min Sung thought carefully between the two options.

He didn’t want to complicate things by buying all sorts of skills.

Min Sung liked to keep it simple.

So Min Sung bought one of the random +50,000 skills, and the rest of his points were spent on the ‘Legendary Magic Output +1’.

When he touched the accept button, the message, ‘Your purchase has been completed’ popped up.

<+900 experience points remaining.>

Min Sung immediately checked his inventory.

He found the two items that he just purchased from the shop.

[Legendary magic output +5]

[Random skill +1]

Right before Min Sung tried to use the ‘Legendary Magic Output +5’ item…

[The Dionysus Gods who gifted Player Min Sung Kang with experience points are nervous.]
