Ding dong.

The clear sound of a bell echoed through the unusually lively restaurant, followed by a gust of wind rushing in through the open door.

“We’re full, please come back later,” the owner at the counter informed without raising his head, his eyes fixed on the abacus as he calculated the accounts. “Or you can wait outside, I’ll inform you when there’s a table available.”

“I’m not here to dine.”

“Not here to dine?” The owner looked up at the exceptionally beautiful girl standing before him in surprise. “Then why are you here? Are you looking for someone? Need a place to stay? Please tell me you’re not here to rob.”

The owner quickly closed his partially calculated account book, eyeing the girl cautiously. “I must warn you, the streets are heavily patrolled these days. If I yell loudly, the patrols will arrive within three minutes. I suggest you give up any unrealistic ideas.”

Lilith rolled her eyes. “Do you really think a delicate and beautiful girl like me would resort to something as crude as robbery, uncle? Are you suffering from paranoia?”

“Well, you never know. Just two days ago, Old Wang’s store was vandalized by a girl with rabbit ears. She was quite a sight, I must say. Like someone out of a fantasy world.”

The owner chuckled, clearly reminiscing about the captivating girl from the other day, especially with those long and white rabbit ears of hers…

“Enough about that. I’m here for serious business.”

Lilith couldn’t be bothered with the boss’ ramblings. She tapped the counter impatiently, getting straight to the point. “I’m buying your restaurant. Pack up and leave in five minutes.”

“What?” The boss thought he had misheard. “You want to buy my restaurant?”
“That’s right.”
“Hahaha, you really know how to tell a good joke, little girl. Do you have any idea how much our restaurant is worth?”
“I don’t, and I don’t need to either.”
“Well, our restaurant is worth at least five thousand gold coins. Do you understand the value of five thousand gold coins?”
“I don’t, and I don’t need to either.”
“Haha. You must be from a wealthy family then, young lady. How adorable you are.”

The boss laughed so hard that he could not catch his breath. He turned to the other guests who were watching and asked, “Can any of you explain to this little girl what is the value of five thousand gold coins?”

“It means half a million silver coins or fifty million copper coins!”
“It means you can buy ten suites in the city center, along with three lovely wives!”
“That’s too conservative, it should be five wives!”
“No, ten! I want ten wives!”
“Haha, go home and focus on your studies, little girl. Your parents will be disappointed if you only know how to spend their fortune in the future.”
“They might even spank your little butt!”

The entire restaurant was filled with laughter and excitement, until…

Lilith waved her hand, and a mountain of gold appeared in front of the crowd. It was almost as tall as she was. Without any expression, Lilith grabbed a handful of gold coins and casually threw them at the owner’s face.

“As I said, I don’t know and I don’t need to know. Money means nothing to me. It’s just numbers that I don’t bother to calculate.”

The boss was dumbfounded. He instinctively brought a gold coin to his mouth and bit it. A clear tooth mark immediately appeared on the coin…

Damn, it’s actually pure gold!

The gold coins circulating in the market were usually mixed with other metals. Biting them would not leave behind a tooth mark. That was not the case for these! These coins were made of pure gold!

Most importantly… There was a mountain of them in front of him! The owner now saw Lilith in a new light! He even felt like he was dreaming.

“You’re not dreaming.” Lilith grabbed another handful of gold coins and flung them at his face. “Are these enough?”

The cold, hard coins hit the owner’s face, but the burning pain he felt on his face was strangely intoxicating…

Come on, I can endure this pain. Give me more…

“Enough?” Lilith threw another handful of coins at him.
More, more…

“Enough?” Lilith threw yet another handful of coins at him.
More, more…

“Enough?” Lilith threw one more handful of coins at him.
More, more…

However, Lilith had no intention of keeping this up. She stared at the owner coldly and repeated, “Five minutes. Pack up and leave.”

The owner remained motionless, transfixed by the sight of the magnificent golden mountain before him.

“These are rightfully yours as well. Take as much as you can within the allotted time.”

Calculating the remaining time, Lilith added, “With all your nonsense earlier, you still have three minutes.”

The mention of three minutes finally snapped the owner out of his daze. He swiftly leaped over the counter and lunged at the pile of gold coins like a famished tiger descending upon its prey.

“Mine, it’s all mine!” he declared greedily, using everything he could possibly find around him to gather the coins, save for his underwear.

Uninterested in witnessing his grotesque behavior, Lilith turned her attention to the frozen diners. Some of them were so shocked that they even shoved food into their nostrils by mistake.

“You have five minutes too. Finish your meals and leave. This establishment will be closing soon,” Lilith announced.

She then casually threw a handful of gold coins onto the ground, and the sounds of their impact echoed in the air.

“This meal is on me.”

Without waiting for a response, Lilith walked away, leaving the chaos behind her. She headed back to the kitchen, where multiple chefs and their apprentices were frantically preparing meals for the full house tonight due to the upcoming Great Celestial Rite.

One of the chefs noticed Lilith’s presence. Annoyed by her intrusion, he immediately berated her, “Who are you? What are you doing here? Don’t you know that unauthorized personnel are not allowed in the kitchen?”

Lilith threw a handful of gold coins across his face. “Shut up.”

The chef froze, stunned by the shiny stuff that just hit his face.

Are these… gold coins?

“Extinguish,” Lilith commanded, snapping her fingers. With a surge of dragon magic, all flames in the kitchen extinguished, bringing an abrupt silence to the previously chaotic space.

“Listen up. Two minutes ago, I became your new boss. From now on, you will work for me and do as I say. I don’t care and I won’t care about what will happen tomorrow, but for today, you will work ten times as hard. Keep cooking, do not stop for even a moment. We have many guests coming soon. I don’t care how you’ll do it, make sure there’s enough food to feed everyone no matter what it takes.”

Lilith threw another handful of gold coins across the head chef’s face. “Do you understand?”

She threw a handful of gold coins across sous-chef’s face. “Do you understand?”

She moved on to the supervisor, repeating the same action, and asked, “Do you know what to do?”

She then did the same to another chef. “Can you do it?”

And lastly, she threw a handful of gold coins on the kitchen helper’s face. “Do you have any questions?”

“Good, I prefer smart people.”

Seeing how everyone in the kitchen was now looking at her like she was their breadwinner, Lilith nodded in satisfaction.

“Do your best. If you perform well, I will surely reward you accordingly. However, if you fail to meet my expectations…”
