SUPREME ARCH-MAGUS

[WSA 2024] Kent is an ordinary wizard in the Sky family wizard school, and his wife Thea also works as an elder in the same school. As Thea is moving out to the elder barracks, she kicks Kent out of the house and puts the house for sale. “You are just a piece of waste who couldn’t earn a silver.” Thea’s last words still lingering in Kent’s soul. (It’s not like Kent is a lazy guy who escapes studies. Most of Kent’s meridians were locked down by a curse.) Suddenly on the same day, Kent received a Raven from his maternal aunt. “Are you really my aunt?” Kent questioned with a doubtful gaze. “Yes, Kent… I have sent 5000 gold and Heavenly elixir to remove your meridian curse. Don’t mind asking me for more money. Your mom left a huge fortune for you.” From that moment Kent’s life changed as he brought a new flying pet equal to core disciples, new weapons, Villas, Fancy meals, and whatnot. Soon, his powers sore and he became a Supreme Arch Magus. Discord: https://discord.gg/nMYbb23h

Kent pressed his finger on the card and didn't let Sia, the first girl who attended, pick it up.

"Sir, I can process your bill." Sia said with a wide smile, trying to look as pleasing as possible.

But Kent took back his card and passed it to Jumi.

"Sir, please wait a minute. I will ask my manager for discounts." Jumi replied as she sent a message to her manager.

The manager, who is resting inside the cabin, hurriedly came out after hearing about the Pegasus bracelet. Even though the manager couldn't believe that Kent was the one who was buying, he acted with respect. Thankfully, Jumi already informed him about the golden piggy card. 

"Sir, as this is a flagship item, I can only offer a 5% discount at maximum." The manager replied with a hesitating smile.

"It's ok… I have no problem with the price." Kent replied in a casual tone. "But make sure that she gets a good commission." Kent added while staring at the manager.

The manager nodded his head with a wide grin and instructed Jumi to fully cooperate with Kent to set up the bracelet. In the next minute, Jumi processed the bill and thanked Kent with a bow.

"Sir, if you don't mind, please let me set up the bracelet with your communication orb." Jumi requested in a humble tone.

Without saying anything, Kent took out his sky orb from the bamboo bag and passed it to Jumi.

The manager's eyes went wide after seeing the sky orb in Kent's hands. Only the top wealthy families can get their hands on the latest models of glass orbs.

But the most surprised one is Sia; she is staring at the sky orbs in Jumi's hands with a wide open mouth. She could have been in Jumi's place if she showed a bit more patience. Sadly, there is no medicine for regret.

Jumi, while holding Kent's hands, began setting up the Pegasus bracelet. After linking the sky orb, she guided Kent to use different compartments inside the bracelet. She patiently explained where to keep fresh foods, pets, clothes, weapons, and magical beasts.

Finally, after performing the blood contract, the entire control came into Kent's hands, as from now on, only Kent could access the bracelet.

"Sir, if you don't mind, can I add your contact information?" Jumi asked in a hesitating tone while avoiding his gaze.

"I'm also thinking of asking the same. Please do it." Kent replied.

After exchanging contacts, Kent left the Dimensional store. As there is still one hour to meet with Stella and sign a property contract, Kent decided to go for shopping and get a little haircut.

Because of Kent's old clothes, he is experiencing prejudice in every place. Also, he needs more resilient, combat-specific clothes to participate in competition.

As he thought for a second, Kent decided to visit 'Idol Plaza' where luxurious clothes were sold, and there is also a saloon on the top floor of the plaza.

"Just one day... I can freely fly in the sky with my Kirin." Kent muttered as he walked on the side path.

Soon, Kent reached 'Idol Plaza', the fashion hub of Silver Leaf Town. It's a three-story building.

The ground floor and first floor are filled with casual clothes, and the second floor is specific to a few people as they only sell combat clothes and some expensive clothing brands.

The third floor contains a beauty parlor cum saloon. As Kent stepped inside the Idol Plaza, a wave of anticipation washed over him.

There are no supervisors or salespersons on this floor. Every garment is tagged with a magic thread to prevent theft.

Rows and rows of clothes filled the sidelines. They only cost a few bronze coins. Even though they look good, Kent decided to first see all the floors before buying. As he moved on to the first floor, he saw the same pattern as on the ground floor. But these clothes were a bit expensive, as they charged silver coins for each garment.

Instead of wasting time here, Kent decided to visit the second floor, where combat clothes and expensive brands were sold.

"Sir, do you have an entry pass?" A gatekeeper at the entrance of the third floor blocked Kent from advancing.

"Sorry, I'm new to this store. I don't have any passes. Is there any other way to enter inside?" Kent asked with an awkward laugh.

"If you don't have a pass, we will charge you 10 gold, sir. If you buy anything, it will be deducted from the final bill. Otherwise, we will return your coins." The security was explained in a sincere tone.

"Oh, it's not a problem. Here is my card." Kent said as he passed his golden piggy card.

"Sir, please wait a minute; I need to pass this card at the reception." The security replied and left for the reception.

Just after a few seconds, a fatty young man with golden hair wearing a luxurious suit hurriedly came running towards Kent.

"Young master, is this your card?" The fatty young man asked Kent in a humble posture while staring at Kent with a scrutinizing gaze.

Kent stared at the fatty young from top to bottom. With a round face, rosy cheeks, and a jovial smile, the fat man looks very unique in his own way. He wore a tailed suit that strained slightly at his large stomach and wore matching boots.

"Yes, this is my card." Kent replied after a small delay.

"Sorry, young master. I'm really sorry for waiting you outside. Please come in." The fat young man said it with a humble bow as he welcomed Kent.

Without thinking much, Kent stepped forward. His gaze moved to the attractive clothes displayed on the glass doors. Unlike the two floors below, this floor has a very small number of clothes. But each one looked unique in its own way.

"Young master, my name is Ben. People call me Fatty Ben. This store belongs to my uncle's family. As I'm weak in combat, my uncle let me work here as the head accountant." Fatty continued to tell his entire story non-stop.

"Wait, wait... why are you saying all this to me? I came here to buy clothes." Kent replied hurriedly, as he couldn't bear the sticky nature of Ben.

"Hahaha… sorry, sorry, young master. Please tell me what type of clothes you were looking for." Fatty Ben asked with an awkward smile.

"I need casual clothes and a few sets of combat clothes. I don't like flashy ones. But quality and appearance are important." Kent replied after a brief thought.

"Young master, please come with me. I know every single garment on this floor. You don't need to waste your time by searching the entire floor. This way, young master." Fatty led Kent towards the head table and showed him a chair to sit on.

"Ben, stop calling me a young master. My name is Kent Clark." Kent replied softly.

Fatty Ben laughed awkwardly and began calling the names of sales assistants. In the next five minutes, Fatty moved every salesgirl on the floor. Like a professional manager, he directly said the garment code and instructed them to fetch it to the table.

The salesgirls didn't understand why Fatty is serving an ordinary-looking young man like the owner of the store. But they can't go against him as this store belongs to Fatty's relatives. They just obeyed his commands and carefully brought the selected garments to the table.

After five minutes, fifty sets of casual clothes were neatly arranged before Kent on the right side. Twenty sets of combat clothes were placed on the left side.

"Young Master Kent, these are the best collections in my store. As you said, I exempted flashy ones. You don't need to worry about the quality or durability of these sets." Fatty Ben spoke with a proud face.

All the salesgirls stood in line before the garments, as Fatty served the entire store-girls exclusively for Kent.
