Chapter 93 - Afterimage
Half an hour later, the five kinds of magical plants in the express delivery station disappeared without a sound. However, a double-layered box suddenly appeared on the ground.
The guards outside the door were scared half to death! They did not dare to leave for a moment. How could the things disappear right under their noses? Could it be that they had seen a ghost in broad daylight?
Ning Yiyuan naturally received the news as well. He could not help but frown slightly as he looked at the image transmitted by the high-power monitor.
“What the hell is this?” Zuo Lin could not help but widen his eyes and cry out in shock when he saw the snow-white afterimage left on the high-power monitor!
At the same time, the others also cried out in surprise! After all, Ning Yiyuan was not the only one who had such thoughts.
If the effects of the Spirit Food were as rumored on the internet, then the owner of this ‘Spirit Food Shop’ would definitely become the target of recruitment by various forces. They could not get hold of the shop owner through the internet, so the obvious move was to target the delivery man.
However, no matter how much they thought about it, they never thought that this delivery man was actually a magical beast!
Although the high-powered monitor was only half the size of a fingernail, the intuition of a magical beast was much sharper than that of a human. Naturally, it could not escape the sharp eyes of the little Flying Fox.
“Li Li–” At the beginning, the little guy even went up to take a look with interest. After all, it was its first time seeing this thing, so it could not help but be curious.
In the end, this curiosity scared the person who was looking through the device!
Indeed, there had been no movement before, but in the blink of an eye, he saw a huge eyeball that occupied the entire field of vision. The person monitoring the device was so frightened that he staggered, he almost fell off his chair!
Therefore, when the little Flying Fox saw the high-powered monitor that Ning Yiyuan had arranged, it lost interest. It put down its things, picked up the magical plant, patted his butt, and flew away.
Because of this, Ning Yiyuan and the others only saw a blurry afterimage. Before they could think about it, the guard had already brought the double-layered box in. Zuo Lin immediately turned his attention to the box.
“This is the Spirit Food worth 50,000 Federation Coins?” Zuo Lin rubbed his hands, his face full of interest.
Ning Yiyuan walked over, and with a slight lift of his long and slender hand, the lid of the box was opened. Then, a thick aroma of food wafted out.
“Oh, ohh...” Zuo Lin sniffed a few times and looked intoxicated. “Wow! Let’s not talk about other things. This Spirit Food is quite fragrant. I’m drooling!”
Zhong Wen raised his eyebrows and looked at him. “You even ate a nutrition capsule just now.” This guy did not even try to lie.
Zuo Lin glared back at him. “Why do you care about me?”
“Alright, hurry up and eat!” Ning Yiyuan only glanced at the two of them indifferently. They immediately calmed down the flames of war and did not dare to be presumptuous in front of Ning Yiyuan.
“How should we eat this?” The rich fragrance kept drilling into their nostrils. Even Zhong Wen, who had always been a calm person, was a little excited.
However, the Spirit Food they snatched this time was spicy crayfish. Mo Chu removed the poisonous parts, leaving only half of its body with a shell on it. In addition, the crayfish was originally grayish-black in color. Mo Chu fried it with chili. With some seasoning added, the crayfish turned a fiery red color. It did not remind them of the magical beast ‘Black Crayfish’ they had seen before.
Mo Chu was rather careful. He even placed a small note on the top of the lunch box. On the note, there was a special description of how to eat it. There were also a few gloves attached. The service was quite good.
Ning Yiyuan glanced at the note. The words were not written by hand but were printed by the terminal. The paper was also the most commonly used type and did not reveal the slightest flaw.
Zuo Lin could not help it. He leaned over and took a few glances. First, he handed the gloves to Ning Yiyuan and Zhong Wen. Then, he put one on his hand. He took a crayfish from the box and prepared to peel it open, unfortunately, this was his first time operating it. His movements were clearly not skilled. After peeling it for a long time, he still could not peel it open. His head was still covered in sweat.
There was nothing he could do. He could smell the alluring fragrance, but he could not see or eat it. It was too uncomfortable!
Ning Yiyuan’s movements were very smooth. It was his first time peeling shellfish, but compared to Zuo Lin, his proficiency was like Heaven and Earth!
In just a few seconds, Ning Yiyuan had completely peeled off the shell of the crayfish. The tender flesh looked really tempting!
Zuo Lin smacked his lips. If it was Zhong Wen, he would still dare to snatch it. But if it was his boss, he would not dare to do it. He simply could not be bothered to peel it anymore and stuffed the entire crayfish into his mouth, he began to bite down.
Oh my God, it was so delicious! This fragrance, this delicacy could not be described with words!
Ning Yiyuan also placed the crayfish meat into his mouth. This unique taste also caused him to be startled. As he chewed slowly, the image of Mo Chu’s gluttonous mouth suddenly appeared in his mind. If she were to eat this thing right now, she would have long narrowed her eyes and pouted her cheeks. Her face was so cute that she looked like a gluttonous cat!
