Wen Xuxu hastily took out a bottle of mineral spring water and squatted next to Yan Rusheng. She unscrewed the bottle cap and put the bottle near his mouth.
Yan Rusheng didn’t hold the bottle, and instead opened his mouth directly for Wen Xuxu to feed him.
Wen Xuxu had no choice but to oblige.
“Rinse out your mouth first, don’t rush to drink it,” she instructed him gently as she gave him the water.
Yan Rusheng glanced sideways at her and to his surprise, she was watching him with a gentle look.
Was it an illusion?
It must be an illusion. Since she was young, this stupid woman had always treated him with fierceness. How could she be watching him with a gentle look?
Thinking of this, he squinted his eyes and his attitude became cold again. He stretched out his hand and snatched the bottle away from her. Tilting his head, he gulped down the water eagerly.
After he’d puked, he felt slightly more comfortable and his face gradually regained its color.
The head of district development gave them a wide smile as he welcomed them.
When he saw Yan Rusheng’s vomit near the flowerbed, his expression fell slightly. He eagerly moved forward to express his concern.
“President Yan, what happened to you? Are you unwell?”
He walked in front of Yan Rusheng and extended his hand for a handshake.
Yan Rusheng upheld his pride and aloofness as the Third Master Yan and merely glanced at the district head’s hand without accepting the greeting.
“Wen Xuxu, where is the hotel that we’re staying in?”
He didn’t feel like saying anything right now and all he wanted was to have a good rest in the hotel room.
The district head didn’t wait for Wen Xuxu’s reply and promptly nodded as he bowed. “President Yan, we have arranged for you to stay at a five-star hotel, let me escort you to your room so that you may rest.”
After he finished, he turned around and walked ahead to lead the way.
The four people from Flourish & Prosper had the same question in their minds when they heard him. Is there a five-star hotel here?
Of course, that would be the best.
The group followed the head of district development.
After leaving the District Development Office, they lost count of the number of times they’d changed directions before they stopped outside of the entrance of a three-story building facing the sea.
There was a wooden plaque with the words ‘Coastal Five Star Hotel’ hanging on the door. It was like dragons flying and phoenixes dancing.
Wen Xuxu stared at the hotel’s name and her mouth jerked twice without a sound.
This ‘five star’ turned out to be different from the other ‘five star’.
All she wanted to do was laugh as she didn’t really harbor any other thoughts. She was fine with anything as long as she had a place to sleep.
But it was a different story for the Third Master. When he heard of the five-star hotel, he was elated. However, when he stood before this “Five Star” hotel entrance, the feeling of disappointment was substantial.
The hotel entrance even had a few ducks waddling nonchalantly nearby. The occasional sounds of quacking could be heard as they leisurely moved around.
Yan Rusheng scanned the surroundings of the hotel entrance with a glum expression. There was nothing in sight that could comfort him and the tightness in his chest intensified.
Hence his eyes turned to the interior of the hotel which looked like a regular hotel’s ‘lobby”. It looked about 20 square meters in size.
There was a fragrance hall that was facing the door, with incense drifting from the incense burner inside. It must be a local custom.
The white floor tiles were matched with red wooden furniture. It was quite clean overall.
At least it wasn’t unkempt, so he felt marginally better.
The district head stood at the entrance and yelled in the direction of the interior room.
A girl wearing a light yellow dress appeared from upstairs when she heard the yells. She was about 18 or 19 years old and was about 1.6 meters tall.
The girl’s skin was dark, probably due to the fact that she stayed near the sea. Her eyes were huge and bright.
When she saw the district head, she gave a wide smile revealing a row of pearly white teeth. Her teeth were like pearls, dazzling and bright.
