Chapter 67: Find A Job, Demon!

The bluish violet fireball wrapped Sargeras’ hand up and spread along his red flames as if they were alcohol.
Almost in an instant, Amy’s flame swallowed him whole. The bluish violet fire was dancing over the red fire; it looked like they were consuming each other.
The customers gave a gasp of surprise. They had never thought that Amy’s little fireball would enwrap Sargeras, but they still didn’t know the power of her flame.
Sargeras took a look at the bluish violet fire on him, and said indifferently, “You have to try a lot harder than—” Suddenly, his words died in his throat when he saw his right hand. The red flames that engaged the bluish violet flames first had been completely consumed; the latter also had little left, but they were still burning him.
And that was just a beginning. The remaining bluish violet flames quickly spread along his right hand. Sargeras, who had been insensitive to heat maybe for all his life, suddenly felt hot. He felt his rock-hard skin was being poked by needles.
Mag was also a little surprised when he saw Sargeras’ face change. He had thought that Amy’s fireball would be ineffective on a lava demon since it hadn’t even killed Black Coal, but, apparently, he was wrong. The power of her fireball seemed to be extraordinary.
Mag’s strength was only 1.5, so he knew better than to throw himself at Sargeras. He didn’t want to commit suicide.
Yet he wasn’t worried that Sargeras would tear the restaurant apart. He could see that he liked, or rather craved, the roujiamo—somehow, he needed it very badly.
This was where Mag’s confidence came from. No other restaurant on the whole Norland Continent was able to make such a roujiamo.
So, however mad this lava demon might get, he would never lay a finger on the restaurant or him or his daughter. He was a perfect subject to test Amy’s power, because his fire-covered body shouldn’t be easily hurt.
Amy watched Sargeras and frowned. “Do you want some more?” Then she held out her hand. “If one is not enough, then I’ll give you two,” she said.
“No! Stop! It’s so hot!” Sargeras said as he jumped back a step and waved vigorously at Amy. The lava inside him was flowing fast, making his skin glow. Then he managed to withstand the bluish violet flames, which had completely consumed all his red flames.
He flung his arms a few times, and the fire was finally put out. Sargeras breathed a sigh of relief. When he saw Amy who was still holding out her hand, he waved again. “I’ve had enough. One is enough!” he said helplessly. There was fright in his eyes.
Some customers laughed out. The big, flaming Sargeras was standing before cute little Amy like a mouse before a cat. It was so amusing.
As they laughed, they also felt a little startled. This lava demon isn’t just looking frightening; besides, lava demons are very powerful demons. If they had a large number, they would have made the top 10 demon subspecies.
But such a powerful demon backed off because of Amy’s fireball, and is afraid that she might unleash another.
He is fighting in his element, yet he just surrendered? Then how terrifying Amy’s flames must be?! The customers wondered. They looked at Mag in a different way.
No ordinary man could own such a stylish gourmet restaurant.
Even his four-year-old daughter possesses the power to scare a lava demon. The customers decided they couldn’t be too picky or grouchy in the restaurant and that they definitely had to pay after eating. They had no power to stand up to such a fireball.
Their laughter made Sargeras’ face even redder. He, a lava demon warrior, was now forced to surrender to a half-elf girl. It was truly embarrassing.
The bluish violet fire was terrifying, but it was not the main reason why he surrendered. Before Amy’s fire consumed his body, he had enough time to summon lava meteorite to wreck this restaurant three times.
But he had no choice. If he tore it down, the method he had been searching for 50 years would be gone with it. He couldn’t afford to let that happen.
So, he couldn’t touch the restaurant, the owner, nor the owner’s daughter!
If he had to tough out another Amy’s fireball, his skin might be scorched. It would be painful, and he might react in spite of himself.
So the best solution was to give up.
“It’s all right.” Mag put his hand gently on Amy’s head to signal her to stop the fire that was about to appear. His smile was gone. “Sir, you have to obey the rules here,” Mag said seriously as he looked at Sargeras. “No one is allowed to fight in the restaurant. No one is allowed to threaten the owner and employees. Otherwise, he’ll be banned forever.”
When Sargeras heard that he might be banned, he held back the fire over his body immediately. “Owner, I was just joking. See? The little girl is having a very good time.” He scratched his bald head as he gave a dry smile. Then he quickly put the gold coins on the table. “I’ll pay 10 gold coins for the chair. And here is three for the roujiamo. But can I have another 10 roujiamos and put the bill on my tab? On my honor as a lava demon warrior, I’ll pay you back as soon as I complete my quest and earn the money.”
Mag shook his head. “Sorry. There’re rules here. We do not accept any kind of promise. Cash only, no credit allowed.” He went over to the table and turned over the menu. There were three rules clearly written on the back.
“System, you’re pretty smart,” Mag said in his mind as he saw the third rule about no fighting and threatening the owner.
“16 silver coins to add that; the money has been deducted automatically,” the system said.
“Stop thinking about how to make money all day long… Be a little decent, will you?” Mag couldn’t refrain from criticizing it.
“But…”Sargeras wouldn’t give up that easy. He wanted to eat 10 in a row. Besides the effect on his barrier, the roujiamo was also divine.
Amy crouched down. Ugly Duckling ran to her happily. She picked it up. “Find a job, demon! If you want to eat this delicious roujiamo, you have to try hard to earn money,” Amy said to Sargeras as she clenched her little fist.
