Hancock glanced at Robert before she went up to Allan and hooked her arm with his, admitting their relationship.
Robert glanced at Allan enviously and said: “Sir, you are so blessed to have such a beautiful fiancée. I hope you treat her well.”
“It’s not up to you,” Allan said.
Robert smiled embarrassedly, then took Allan and Hancock to the restaurant’s best location and gave them a couple of top-class dishes for free.
Allan didn’t refuse a free meal and enjoyed it with Hancock.
Hancock was silently eating with a bowed head. Allan saw this and directly smiled: “Hancock, I didn’t expect you to take the initiative to grab my hand. Do you like me?” Allan teased.
Hancock immediately blushed hard and explained: “This Empress was hungry and didn’t want to look at another place to eat, so I cooperated with you, don’t get any wrong idea.”
“Yes, Yes, you are the Proud Snake Princess. How could you like someone like me?”
Hancock was already a mess right now.
She initially hated Allan and wanted to kill him, but as she looked at Allan’s smiling face and piercing eyes, she couldn’t hate him.
Moreover, at first, Allan was the epitome of the man she hated from the start, but now, she saw him as a handsome, stalwart, and sweet man.
She felt something special from him when he looks at her, and when he calls her Hancock, she felt electrocuted, and her heartbeats sped up.
“Um, I’m going to the bathroom.”
“Do you want me to accompany you?”
“No, I know how to go.”
Seeing Hancock leaving, Allan smiled. He had absolute control of Hancock and wasn’t afraid of her leaving him, and he also read her thoughts and found out that she almost in love with him.
She was going to the bathroom just to calm herself.
“I think I should eat that now.” Allan suddenly remembered something really important.
Suddenly, a strange fruit appeared in his hand. Allan took out the Ice Ice fruit from the Inventory to eat along with the meal.
He put it on an empty plate, took his knife, and cut it into four pieces.
As long as someone ate one bite of a devil fruit, he will gain that devil fruit’s ability without the need to fully eat the rest.
Allan picked a piece and brought it to his lips before eating it.
He frowned at the taste, which was exactly how it was described. However, to gain the Ice Ice fruit ability, he can tolerate the horrible taste.
At this moment, Hancock came back, and seeing the leftover of the Devil fruit on Allan’s plate, she immediately recognized it.
“Why is there a devil fruit here?” Hancock wondered.
“No, you’re wrong.” Allan lied and felt a little guilty doing so.
He didn’t want to admit that he ‘enjoyed’ a devil fruit alone while his fiancée went to the bathroom.
“I’m not. That’s a devil fruit.” Hancock said again.
Allan denied: “No, No, it’s not, this isn’t the same world as the one you’re from, so how can there be a devil fruit here? This is just an ordinary fruit.”
Hancock said: “This Empress Already ate the Mero Mero Fruit, so I can tell by the fruit’s appearance. Although each fruit is different, that texture is only present on a devil fruit.”
“This is just an ordinary fruit. If you don’t believe me, you can eat a piece.”
“No, This Empress already ate one, and if I eat another one, I will explode. Also, there is a three-piece, and one is missing, which means you ate one piece of the fruit, and now the rest is just an ordinary bad tasting fruit. Because the devil fruit loses its effect as soon as someone eats even one bite of it.”
Allan was stunned by Hancock’s knowledge of devil fruit.
“Well, it is a devil fruit, and I already ate some of it, so I gained its power.” Allan could only admit it even though he wanted to keep a low profile.
Hancock looked at him fixedly and asked: “I want to know where did you get that devil fruit, and also what kind is it? Logia? Zoan, or Paramecia? And what can it do?”
“Where it came from is a secret that I won’t tell you about now. As for which type it is, you will know it when you see it, but don’t forget to pick your jaw after I show you.”
Under the expectant gaze of Hancock, Allan touched the table with his finger, and instantly, the tabletop was frozen in an instant.
Hancock was really surprised and looked at him in the face: “This is… The Ice Ice Fruit of Admiral Aokiji? Did you eat that fruit?”
Allan snapped his finger and smiled: “Bingo!! Since your answer is correct, I will reward you in the evening.”
