[Thousand Hands] is a unique ability to summon “hands” that can be manipulated at will.
These hands can be used for parallel casting spells.
Of course, I can also use it for physical attacks.
But more than that, I can use it like this.
“Now, it’s finished.”
I used my four hands to complete three dishes in the shortest and fastest cooking time.
The eldest goblin uttered in admiration,
“Three dishes in that short time… Isn’t the rumored five parallel actions justified? It’s certainly a wonderful skill, but the problem is…” (First Goblin)
“Of course there’s the taste, so please eat it before it gets cold.”
I put the three plates side by side on the table in front of the three goblin brothers.
“This is–!” (First Goblin)
The three brothers’ eyes widened and the onlookers gasped.
The meal on the plate attracted their attention.
It is a stewed six-eyed goat —with innards floating in the clear soup.
“–Isn’t this stewed six-eyed goat’s innards!” (First Goblin)
“Simmered six-eyed goat stew, Mid-Boss-Style”
I added as I washed the kitchen utensils I have used.
It looks different, but the food itself is exactly the same as what they made.
It is a stewed dish that uses plenty of the internal organs of six-eyed goats.
“Uo!? What is that!? Isn’t it totally different from the one made by the three brothers!?” (Monster)
“What an appetizing scent… I thought I couldn’t eat the six-eyed goat’s guts, but I’m starting to get hungry!” (Monster)
“… Oh, what? What the hell happened…?” (Kyuuketsu)
“Kyu-chan came back to life with the scent of food!?” (Alraune)
The peanut gallery is making a lot of noise after I unveiled my cooking.
The eldest goblin frowned.
“… The Mid-Boss is also quite cruel, are you planning to embarrass us by making a stew of stinky innards?” (Second Goblin)
“What’s silly, eat it quickly and it is good.”
“Hmm, you amateur! A stewed offal with no smell is not a stewed offal! It’s not for our taste…” (Third Goblin)
But the eldest goblin took a bite and chewed.
A moment later—The eldest goblin trembled.
“Ah!?” (First Goblin)
“Oh, big brother!?” (Second Goblin)
“Bufu, what, you, what did you cook…!” (Third Goblin)
The third of the goblin brothers raised his butcher knife again.
However, two hands grasped his arm.
It is none other than the eldest goblin.
“Bi-big brother, what…” (Third Goblin)
“No, no! This is… really delicious!” (First Goblin)
“What!?” (Second Goblin & Third Goblin)
The second and third goblin brother exclaimed.
On the other hand, the eldest goblin chewed the food in his mouth.
“The innards aren’t bad! The unpleasant taste disappeared, and the flavor of the innards stands out that it hits you!? Compared to this, the stewed guts we made had its taste and aroma were covered.” (First Goblin)
“Hey, really big brother!?” (Second Goblin and Third Goblin)
The second and third goblin brothers ate their own stewed guts and chewed in silence.
Seeing this reaction, the spectators voiced “Ohs!”
“The three stubborn brothers are crazy about someone else’s cooking!?” (Monster)
“What kind of magic did he use!?” (Monster)
“… I might want to eat a little bit of it…” (Monster)
“Tsk, damn it! Delicious!” (First Goblin)
The eldest goblin quickly finished his bowl of stewed guts, and even swallowed the soup, before glaring at me.
“Hey, you’ve probably used some special ingredients…!?” (First Goblin)
A misguided conclusion.
I answer his question as I continue to clean up with my four hands.
“I didn’t use anything special, everything was from this kitchen.”
“That’s a lie! You cannot make something like this with only what I have in that kitchen…!” (First Goblin)
“You can make it if you really think about the one you are cooking for.”
“What…!?” (First Goblin)
“Kyuuketsu, can you come over here for a moment?”
“Umm… Me…?” (Kyuuketsu)
The Kyuuketsu who was hidden behind the crowed muttered in confusion.
I raised the fourth plate I had prepared, for her.
“I want you to eat this.”
“But I’m not good with fishy smells…” (Kyuuketsu)
A Kyuuketsu flies and reluctantly approached me.
I offered her food and a fork.
She thrusts her fork and sips her internal organs with a look of terror painted on her face.
Then—how is it?
“–Oh, it’s delicious!” (Kyuuketsu)
Her expression brightens like a flower blooming in early spring.
Seeing this, the crowd was astonished as if they were looking at something incredible.
“What’s with your voice!? No way Kyu-chan!? Kyu-chan you could make such a voice!?” (Alraune)
“You always sound like you’re dying, but…!” (Sergeant)
“Delicious! Delicious!” (Kyuuketsu)
Kyuuketsu is different from the previous sinking appearance, and it sticks to the stewed guts while fluttering its wings.
I started talking slowly, getting everyone’s attention.
“-She was suffering from chronic anemia, of course, there’s no one to suck blood from here and her diet is unbalanced. On the other hand, the guts of the six-eyed goat are rich in nutrients and can also help relieve anemia.”
“So, what if you were to make a stew of offal without the smell for Kyu-chan, who has always hated offal…!?” (Alraune)
“Well, this is what can happen… You three brothers.”
I walk up to them saying,
“It’s fine to be confident in your cooking skills, it is fine to cherish tradition, but don’t forget who you are cooking for.”
“You went to…… a lot of trouble to teach us that, but we already have…” (First Goblin)
“It’s okay, you guys have six hands. Surely you can make food that is more delicious.”
“I don’t know…!” (First Goblin)
The three brothers began to shed tears.
There are cheers and applause from the crowd.
Hmmm, this completes the reform of Goblin Restaurant!
“Mid-Boss-san, my brothers and I are in awe with your manliness! We’ve decided to test… to see if you’ll let us be after you’ve eaten all of that stewed offal! We’ll never make goblin style again!!” (First Goblin)
“… Hmm? Why? Leave it on the menu.”
The spectators, including the three brothers, all let out a stupefied voice.
What is with this reaction?
“I didn’t say anything, I don’t hate it…”
From somewhere, I heard the voice saying “Wow.”
It’s been a year since I arrived at the Cave of Silence.
The silence in the Cave of Silence was now broken.
Every day is now busy and lively.
“—Mid-Boss! The new species of poisonous weed that was cultivated in the second layer can successfully be mass-produced! Should I bring it to the first layer?” (Alraune)
“Oh, half of it goes to the slime squad led by Poison Slime, and the other half to the gremlins who want to try it out on their new traps.”
“Hey, boss, another monster wants an interview! How should we proceed?” (Sergeant)
“I will accept the interview in 30 minutes, please serve tea until then.”
“Mid-Boss-san! The number of employees has increased and the Goblin Restaurant is on the verge of exhaustion! Please do something about it!” (First Goblin)
“I’ve ordered the Kobolds to work on it, they should be done by tomorrow.”
While answering the constant stream of demands from the employee (monsters), I used the four hands I had summoned to perform other tasks.
No matter how many hands I have, it’s not enough…
“You really work all the time, ever since that day.” (Alraune)
I heard a voice and looked over to see her standing right beside me.
The flower on her head is no longer withering like when I first met her but was now blooming with dignity.
“What happened Alraune?”
“Sometimes I want to be sentimental, it’s been a year.” (Alraune)
she said, twirling her hair around her fingers in a somewhat embarrassed manner.
The only thing that hasn’t changed after a year is her habit.
“One year… Over in a blink of an eye.”
“This place has changed a lot, hasn’t it?” (Alraune)
“Oh, when I first came here, even a lost child could survive unharmed… it was such a poor dungeon, but take a look at this.”
I spread the comprehensive report of this dungeon on the table.
“This is a predicted level by heroes from Gaiar Castle who scouted the dungeon, around level 6-8.”
“And this is the current recommended level for the Cave of Silence, it is over 30.”
“30!? You mean a party of mid-level adventurers!?” (Alraune)
“We can kick back for the first time.” (Alraune)
She laughed while saying.
Her laughs are a common occurrence these days.
“So we are just waiting for the heroes to come.”
“Even so, the heroes they are late.” (Alraune)
“I did not think he was a coward, and that he’s still wandering in the castle town of Gaiar, all this time. This means the Demon King’s dungeon audit come first.”
“… Wait a minute; isn’t the dungeon audit scheduled a month ago?” (Alraune)
I hurriedly searched for documents after hearing that from Alraune.
… It is true.
“It’s funny, there’s no such thing as a dungeon that doesn’t get audited…”
“Perhaps, the Demon King forgot about the dungeon.” (Alraune)
“No way.” (Alraune)
“Hahahahaha”, we faced each other and laughed.
At that moment.
“—This is bad! Mid-Boss!” (Fairy)
The door was slammed open, and a Fairy jumped in.
“Hey, knock first…” (Alraune)
“Well, wait, Alraune, what’s wrong? Calm down and talk.”
The Fairy takes deep inhales and exhales before managing to breathe.
“–Demon King… Demon King Garhelios-sama has been defeated by the Hero party!” (Fairy)
“And now the Heroes are heading to the Cave of Silence! The average party level is—72!” (Fairy)
