A Stay At Home Dad's Restaurant In An Alternate World Chapter 111
At lunch, Mag made two roujiamos for Yabemiya. His lunch was the same as Amy's—a plate of fried rice and a roujiamo.
"Try it, Sister Miya. It's very good," Amy said as she ate the fried rice, watching the young waitress who was holding a roujiamo with two hands.
Yabemiya nodded. "Okay." She stared at the roujiamo, eyes shining with excitement. She had swallowed many times as she watched customers eating in the morning. After a busy morning, she finally got to enjoy her roujiamo. She took a bite solemnly, all expectant.
"It tastes so good!" Yabemiya exclaimed in delight.
Inside the soft, sweet bai ji bread was soft meat. As she bit into it, tasty juice was released. Every taste bud of hers was cheering and dancing. The taste was wilder than Yangzhou fried rice's. She closed her eyes and swallowed, and the aftertaste of the meat remained in her mouth.
After she swallowed, the pleasant food suddenly became violent. It turned into a hot current and rushed within her, stimulating her blood. Her face became red suddenly, feeling as if something were trying to get out of her body. She rose quickly to her feet and let out a long roar.
One button on her dress gave way and a part of her breasts was showing through. Then a tail covered with golden scales popped up from under her dress and overturned her chair.
Mag and Amy lifted their heads, swallowed the rice, and gave a startled look at the same time.
Mag raised an eyebrow. She burst her clothes too! Is this devolution? He saw her white breasts and cleavage. Wow, quite a view. Then he dropped his gaze to her tail.
The golden scales as large as the top knuckle of a little finger covered her tail, shining like gold. She wagged her tail uneasily. If she could become a dragon someday, she would be a golden one.
"Wow, a dragon tail!" Amy exclaimed as she watched Yabemiya.
Ugly Duckling saw the tail too. It seemed surprisingly unafraid, but it was baring its teeth and lifted its paw as if before an enemy.
Mag frowned. She is okay, I hope… Yabemiya should be happy if she could become a dragon. After all, dragons are the most powerful beings on the whole continent.
Yabemiya's roaring stopped. She opened her eyes slowly. The golden light from her left eye faded. Her face was red, her brow was covered by a sheen of sweat, and her eyes were dreamy. She felt the beast in her had been released just now. Her legs went weak from exhaustion.
Then she felt a warm feeling in her body. It was like a magical energy, soothing her every cell. She had never experienced this feeling before. She felt so good and let out a moan of comfort despite herself. Then she saw Mag and Amy, who were staring at her with a spoon in their hand each, frozen with surprise.
She looked down and saw her breasts. Her red face became even redder. She straightened and tried to cover them with her hands.
In nervousness, her tail overturned another chair. She looked back and saw her new part. "What… What is this?!" she cried as her face turned white, close to tears.
Mag gently put his hands on her shoulder. "Calm down, Miya. You're a half-dragon. This roujiamo has made you devolve or evolve. You look more like a dragon now. You should be happy," he said softly, looking into her eyes.
She was only 17, and she had been through so much that she always had a feeling of insecurity. Besides, a dragon tail was too big a surprise for anyone to stay calm.
Mag's gentle eyes eased her tension. "But… But I don't want a tail. I don't like those looks on their faces. This pair of horns was already making me look strange. I can't imagine how they would look at me if they found out I had a tail…"
Mag shook his head, smiling. "I don't think you're strange. I think you're cute," he said, looking at her with caring eyes.
"Yes, your tail looks very cute, Sister Miya. If you become a dragon, you can take me and Ugly Duckling for a flight," Amy said solemnly, nodding.
"But I just want to be normal. I want to work here, but now…" she said worriedly. The hands on her shoulders made her feel warm, and Mag and Amy's encouragement relieved her anxiety, but the golden tail was really not helping.
Mag looked at Yabemiya and felt sorry for her. Normally one would be thrilled at the prospect of becoming a dragon.
Now she had a chance to become a powerful dragon that others looked up to, and to pay back the people who had mistreated her.
But she didn't want it. Instead, she was worried that this tail might cost her her job. It seemed she didn't hate her old boss and those who had treated her so badly. She just wanted a peaceful life.
"Don't worry. You're my waitress, with or without a tail," Mag said seriously.
"Boss…" Yabemiya looked up at Mag, eyes red and watery.
Mag took his hands away. "And maybe you can retract your tail," Mag said with a smile. Yabemiya is not the first to have such a dramatic change after eating roujiamo. Amy and Sargeras both changed for the better, and the system promised that there wouldn't be any bad side effects. So, she may be able to control this change.
Yabemiya's eyes lit up. "Retract it?" She closed her eyes and clenched her fists. A short while later, with a sudden flash of golden light, her tail disappeared.
Amy looked down. "It's gone," she said with surprise.
Yabemiya's face lit up. "It's really gone!" She twirled around, making her dress fly up a little. The tail vanished. "Boss, I really made it disappear!" she said to Mag, excited.
Mag was also relieved. The system is pretty reliable. Then, out of curiosity, he said, "Good. Are there any other changes?"
She coiled her hands into fists. "I feel I have limitless power. I think I can work a whole day without getting tired," she said with surprise.
Mag nodded, smiling. "That's a good thing." He dropped his gaze to the roujiamo on the table. "Do you still want it?"
