Mag had conquered a bunch of married ladies with the mango mousse cake’s exquisite taste.
Mag gave the remaining six pieces of cake to Miya as a small employee’s meal.
“Boss Mag, will the ice cream shop continue to serve mango mousse cake tomorrow?” Bonnie asked Mag expectantly.
The other customers in the shop looked at Mag with anticipation in their eyes too.
“Yes. From tomorrow onwards, the ice cream shop will supply about 300 helpings of mango mousse cake daily.” Mag nodded with a smile.
Supplying 20 mango mousse cakes daily was an appropriate quantity.
Because, he would be supplying tiramisu and matcha mousse in the future. In this case, the supply would reach 1,000 helpings. Even though the quantity wasn’t as much as the ice cream, it was still a lot.
A gleam flashed through the wealthy ladies’ eyes. Although they had maintained the decorum on their faces, they were already planning inwardly to come over earlier tomorrow to have this scrumptious cake again.
“Will Mamy Restaurant have this cake too?” someone asked again.
“No. This is a dessert that is only supplied to the ice cream shop. You can’t find it anywhere else on the Norland Continent.” Mag shook his head smilingly.
“Alright. Please enjoy the rest of your afternoon.” Mag left the ice cream shop with his cooler box.
However, he wasn’t in a hurry to go home. Instead, he went to the empty house behind the ice cream shop. He was thinking about how much space he would need to have renovated in order to convert it into a dessert workshop for making cakes and sweet treats.
He had handed the ice cream shop over to Miya and she had done a great job. Their daily earnings and profits were very high.
Hence, he intended to impart his cake-making skills to Miya too and let her take complete charge of the desserts.
And to answer the customers’ request for a new product, Mag put up a new product notice after he returned to the restaurant.
“Today’s new product: Steamed large yellow croaker!” Hera turned around and smilingly said to Meli excitedly, “We’re in luck today. We happened to bump into Teacher Mag releasing a new product. We have to try it today. Speaking of which, this is my second time eating at Mamy Restaurant. It’s too expensive and the lines are always too long.”
Meli’s pretty face looked tired. Her dark eye circles were especially obvious. She forced herself to smile, but she looked worried and wasn’t too enthusiastic. Instead, she worriedly said, “Hera, do you think the children in our class will do badly for next month’s monthly math test? I always sense that they don’t really understand what I am explaining.”
“Don’t worry about that. I’ve just heard Teacher Sihara praise you for giving very good lessons two days ago. The children like you too.” Hera patted her shoulders and said with a smile, “Furthermore, the principal had said that the monthly test is just to let the children get used to learning and testing. It isn’t a test on the teachers. You don’t have to be so nervous.”
“How can we not care about our students’ results as teachers? Am I holding my students back if their results are much worse than the other teachers’ students…” Meli pursed her lips with gravity and hesitation.
Hera looked at Meli with a little exasperation. Meli and her had become good friends after spending a lot of time together.
Even though Meli was a rich young mistress with an excellent family background, she was overly responsible towards the children. She would prepare the children’s lesson plans until midnight every day.
And, after the principal announced that there would be a monthly test next month two days ago, she hadn’t had a good sleep for a few days due to being overly worried.
“Don’t worry. The children are attending school for the first time and they need time to adjust to many things. No one will blame you if the children don’t do well for their monthly tests.” Hera hugged Meli’s arm and smilingly said, “I have taken one month’s advance of wages from my father. It will be on me today. Let me treat you to… large yellow croaker!”
Meli glanced at her and couldn’t help saying with a laugh, “You have only started working for a few days and you have already taken three months’ advance of wages, right?”
Hera stuck out her tongue and said matter-of-factly, “Th-this is because of the trainee teacher’s low pay. Actually, it isn’t much. We won’t even have time to spend money when the school gets busy.”
“That’s quite true.” Meli nodded. Her purchasing power had dropped sharply too.
Even though the school didn’t dictate the teachers’ attire, they knew that they had to dress sensibly to impart the right values to the students. Hence, all their fancy clothes were locked away in the closet.
They even reduced the times that they came to eat at Mamy Restaurant. If Hera hadn’t asked her to come today, she would have had a simple meal at the school canteen before continuing to prepare her lessons.
Hera enthusiastically told Meli about the interesting matters that had happened recently. Meli simply answered carelessly. Her mind was still on the teaching plans.
The long-awaited new product finally entered the market. It was met with great enthusiasm and expectation from the restaurant’s regulars.
Fish was one of Mag’s specialties. With the steamed fish head with diced hot red peppers and the spicy grilled fish as great examples, many of them were looking forward to this steamed large yellow croaker.
“Should I eat the spicy grilled fish or the steamed large yellow croaker today? It’s such a dilemma.” Vivian stood at the back of the line with a hesitant look.
She came alone today, so she most probably couldn’t finish two fishes by herself and that wouldn’t look good.
She looked around her and soon found two familiar figures in the crowd. Her eyes glowed.
The restaurant was open and Mag welcomed the customers in with a smile.
Vivian sat opposite of Hera and Meli with a smile as soon as they sat down. “Hera, Teacher Meli, what a coincidence. Are you two eating at Mamy Restaurant too?”
Both Hera and Meli looked at Vivian, lost for words.
“Teacher Vivian, you’re also here for dinner. We didn’t see you earlier,” Hera said with surprise. She was in charge of the school’s administrative work. Although she wasn’t close to Vivian, they knew each other well enough.
Meli only nodded her head as a greeting. She wasn’t very familiar with Vivian. She only knew that Vivian was the city lord’s daughter and was on great terms with the principal. She was most probably an employee… with connections, right?
“I was lining up behind you two earlier but I only recognized the two of you after I came in. I came alone, so can I sit with the two of you?” Vivian asked with a smile.
“Of course, you can.” Hera nodded.
Meli nodded too.
Mamy Restaurant had a tradition of sharing tables. Compared to eating with complete strangers, Vivian was definitely a better choice.
Vivian flipped open the menu and her gaze soon landed on that golden steamed large yellow croaker under the seafood column. Her eyes glowed before seeing that equally golden price: 5000 copper coins per fish!
Vivian pushed the menu over to the two of them and smilingly asked, “This steamed large yellow croaker doesn’t seem bad. Shall we share one?”
