Looking at the main quest on the screen Nick felt utterly depressed, is this karma for thinking cultivation was easy, the heavens are truly jealous of his talent.
Nick sighed knowing there was nothing he could do about it now, he turned his head to the three skill books and accepted the cooking Skill book first.
Ding! Does the host want to learn cooking skill book?
Nick felt countless images flashing and imprinting themselves into his memory but since there was a large volume of information it took a while.
After it was done he opened his eyes with anticipation for his new skill and Yelled, "Ingredients!"
But sadly at that time, he just happened to be looking at the kids.
Are now orphans, have low nutrition value, since their father was a thief and they worked as thieves for a while their meat has a sneaky after taste.
Cooking these beings will turn the host into a cannibal but if the host doesn't mind, there are multiple ways to cook them, it is the host's choice, there is the human stuffing recipe, boiled human recipe...
Eating them will increase Exp by 50!
Nick straight up vomited on the spot, What the fuck was wrong with the system? It even gave him a recipe in cooking humans, what a fucked up system...
'System could you please erase the human portion!'
Ding! Sorry host but once the cooking book is acquired there are no refunds or modifications!
No!! Dean and Maggy had thought with how he acted it was that time of the month for him, but he was vomiting too now which meant they were wrong and according to their analysis he could only be pregnant...
If Nick knew that the kids were playing doctor and thought he was pregnant he would have vomited some more except this time it would have been blood!!
Nick had the driver stop and bought the coat he was wearing off of him and used it to clean the carriage, then he thought as long as he didn't use the skill when looking at kids there won't really be a problem, right?
After that, he turned his eyes towards the disguising skill, and warily accepted the technique.
Ding! Does the host want to learn the Disguise skill book?
Again a large influx of knowledge flooded his brain, but there wasn't as much information as the cookbook.
All he needed to do was think of the creature he wanted to turn into and activate the technique, then he would look exactly as the creature, for now, he can only deceive people that are one realm higher than him meaning those at the Fifth rank of the gathering realm!
Although Nick wanted nothing more than to test out the technique right away, he knew that this technique could very well save his life one day so he need not expose it to people even if it was to the two siblings.
And finally, he turned his eyes towards the crimson step technique.
Ding! Does the host want to learn the Crimson steps technique?
And in came the knowledge but this was even less than the disguise technique.
After acquiring his skils he swiftly checked the stats.

After opening his stats he noticed all he needed to level up his techniques and skills were domineering points and thanks to the five hundred he had gotten from the gift bag earlier, he now only needed three hundred more to get out of his debt.
Their destination was Carmon city, Nick chose this place because it was one of the most powerful commercial cities in the Nova empire, and since he needed to sell the herbs and weapons he had stolen, this was the perfect place to do it.
"Sir we have arrived!!"The driver's voice rang out and notified Nick.
Looking out from the carriage he could see why this was one of the most prosperous cities, the wall was stretched out so far and wide that Nick couldn't even see the end it, the tall building that could be seen peeking out from the tall walls gave the city a flourishing beauty.
But what was really eye-catching was the humungous golden plaque that had the name of the city inscribed on it.
As soon as they arrived at the gates they were asked to pay a spirit stone for entry, Nick was embarrassed, he could be considered wealthy if one counted the weapons and herbs in his duffle bag but he didn't have a single spirit stone on him.
But Nick kept a straight face and turned his head over to the siblings, the boy seemed to be trying to absorb the energy inside while the girl seemed reluctant and kept rubbing it like it was the most precious thing in the world.
Nick then calmly stretched his hands and grabbed Maggi's spirit stone which prompted Maggy to look up and stare at him, after a minute of awkward silence he said, "Thank you for keeping it for me."
Maggi stared as her shameless big brother took the stone and gave it to the guards at the gate, then he closed his eyes like what he did was natural and reasonable.
But she didn't say anything she just stared at him without blinking and waited, she was waiting until he grows a conscience, she was waiting for him to laugh and say' joking!', she was waiting for him to regain his humanity cause she firmly believed that no one could be this shameless.
Nick didn't care at all if she was staring at him, he needed that spirit stone to enter the city so he took it, after he sold his thing he will reward her with two more...no one more, he didn't take Deans because he didn't want to interrupt his cultivation.
After entering the city Nick kept gasping as his carriage toured the city, this city sure was prosperous, just the materials that some of these buildings were made off cost more than his three duffle bags.
They then traveled for thirty minutes before they came in front of a building with the name of 'Not the dark market, trust us!', Nick just sighed at people's stupidity nowadays, are they afraid no one would know that they are the dark market?
After they reached the shop he went ahead inside to sell his things, he didn't care if they were the dark market or the bright market as long as they paid a fair price for his goods.
"Sir, how may I help you?" A gorgeous sales girl came to greet him with her hips swinging side to side with gusto, Nick was really worried she might knock something over.
"I'm here to sell things!"Nick curtly replied.
"Oh, can the handsome young master show me the goods?" As she asked she did an alluring wink at Nick.
"Why did you wink at me?" Nick immediately knew she wanted to use her looks to buy his thing at a discounted price, so how could he let that happen.
"Oh...did...I sorry young master you were just too handsome, I couldn't help my self."
"Oh, that makes sense I am quite handsome."
"hehe young master you are so funny."She said as she did a cute giggle.
"I wasn't joking though!" Nick replied sternly.
The sales clerk was furious, she refused to believe she couldn't charm this man!
"I apologize for the heat, sir." As she said her words she slowly unbuttoned her top button showing her fair cleavage.
"Actually, it's quite cold in here."Nick replied refusing to give her an advantage.
