Chapter 152 - Bidding Farewell To A Cherished One
He didn't mention anything about his ongoing investigation or how he suspected the school disciplinary committee of causing the incident, he only mentioned his connection with the kitchen and its staff.
When Angy finished hearing his narration she felt bad for him than she did earlier. Initially, she only thought Gustav was acquainted with a person there but now she realized he knew everyone there and had formed a bond with them.
Five people ended up losing their lives and from the way, he narrated it she could tell that he was also close with the blamed chief cook who seemed like a nice person to her.
Angy and Gustav talked for a few more minutes and in their discussions, she kept trying to cheer Gustav up.
Angy hugged Gustav one more time and rubbed his face affectionately before bidding him goodnight.
The next few days were pretty uneventful in school. The kitchen incident was starting to die down and the old chefs were reinstated, all except for boss Danzo, Gustav, and the dead staff of course.
A new chief cook was put in charge and this person happened to not be an old staff.
He was placed in charge by the school board and happened to be quite an influential cook also.
Unlike boss Danzo, this new chief didn't let Gustav continue working with them, saying he wasn't qualified to step foot in the kitchen.
Boss Danzo was the reason why Gustav was able to work there in the first place, with him gone Gustav already expected that this was going to happen, especially since the disciplinary committee were the culprits of the incident and planned the entire thing because of him.
The other staff members pleaded for the new chief to employ Gustav back but their pleas fell on deaf ears.
Gustav on the other hand wasn't bothered and kept focusing on investigating the issue until boss Danzo gave him a call for them to meet somewhere.
Boss Danzo and Gustav met in a cake shop not too distant from the school after the activities for the day ended.
"Gustav I'm leaving Plankton city," Boss Danzo was the first to break the few seconds silence between them.
"Why?" Gustav asked with a crestfallen look.
"Because there's no point in remaining here if I can't cook... My cooking reputation is practically ruined here since no one will be willing to hire this old geezer hehe," Boss Danzo laughed lightly as he spoke causing the tense atmosphere to ease up a little.
Gustav stared at him for a few seconds before speaking, "What about Mara?" He asked.
"That's exactly why I wanted to see you if not I would have just left the city without informing anyone and maybe send you a message later, hehe," Boss Danzo laughed lightly again after saying that but Gustav's face still looked as dark as ever.
"Gustav, my granddaughter, Mara will be entering the MBO training camp as a mixed-blood scientist in training, which means, you will get to see her from time to time. Please I want you to take care of her for me," Boss Danzo requested with a pleading look.
"Hmm? She's entering the research department?" Gustav asked.
"Yes, she was picked a few months back but this year's batch hadn't been fully picked yet so she still had to hold on," Boss Danzo explained.
"Oh, I see... I will definitely try my best to watch over her if I'm able to pass the entrance test and get enlisted," Gustav stated with a serious look.
"That's a relief then, I will have to rely on you for this," Boss Danzo smiled while responding.
"Hnm but why does Boss Danzo sound confident in me passing the entrance test... What if I don't pass?" Gustav asked.
"Haha, son you're kidding, right? After everything you did during the incident, I don't doubt your entry anymore," Boss Danzo replied while laughing lightly.
Gustav scratched his head slightly after hearing that. He had nearly forgotten that boss Danzo already knew about him being stronger than he was supposed to be.
"I was worried about your dreams getting crushed by reality and the fact that you will have to come to terms about not being able to get into the MBO with your low-grade bloodline... I had already decided that when you fail and got back, I would take you into my home and take care of you while also passing my legacy down to you but now... I'm no longer worried about that... I'm sure that you'll do well and won't have to suffer the fate of reality crushing your hopes, good luck my boy," Boss Danzo said with a smile.
Gustav was moved by boss Danzo's words again.
He stood up from his seat in front and gave a low bow.
"Thank you for everything boss Danzo," He said with a look of gratitude.
Even though others within the cake shop were staring at him, he didn't flinch in the slightest and remained in the same position for several seconds.
"Ah, you don't have to do that my boy... I'm happy to have helped you in any way I can," Boss Danzo said while dismissively waving his hand.
From the bottom of his heart, Gustav was grateful for everything Boss Danzo did for him. He still couldn't bear to part ways with him but there was nothing he could do about the current situation.
He swore in his heart to look after Mara if he managed to get into the MBO. This was the way he decided to repay boss Danzo.
Gustav took his seat after doing that and asked boss Danzo one last question.
"Which City do you plan on heading to?"
"It's not a very popular city but you might know it... This city is known as, BURNING SANDS," Boss Danzo said with a profound look.
About thirty minutes later Gustav had arrived back in his apartment. He came to terms with the fact that what had happened had happened and he couldn't do anything to change it.
Mopping around wouldn't help in any way so Gustav planned his next step.
"I can't let them go scot-free with what they have done..." Gustav leaned his jaw on his knuckles as he spoke.
"I will make sure they all pay,"
