&x201C;How did&x2026;you misunderstand me?&x201D; Xiao Chennan asked as he stared into Vera&x2019;s eyes.
&x201C;I had misunderstood that&x2026;you were trying to get close to Yuning because you were interested in her,&x201D; Vera explained in an awkward manner. &x201C;So, please give me some time to get used to this situation.&x201D;
&x201C;Take all the time that you need. I have time.&x201D;
Xiao Chennan was very gentlemanly and it made Vera feel very much at ease. Therefore, Vera felt very relieved and she was finally able to walk by Xiao Chennan&x2019;s side without any worries at all.
On the other hand, both Jiang Yuning and Xu Beishen were secretly hiding behind the railing on the second floor to observe the couple that were having their private conversation just downstairs.
&x201C;I really could not tell that the film emperor would be so gentlemanly,&x201D; Xu Beishen said as she looked at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I think that your agent will definitely fall for him soon.&x201D;
&x201C;Life is short and we should make the best out of the little time that we have. How can you stop fate if it&x2019;s meant to be anyway?&x201D; Jiang Yuning answered Xu Beishen in a profound manner. &x201C;I wouldn&x2019;t want Vera to end up like you&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Why are you being so arrogant now? Let me tell you&x2026;I will definitely find myself a man who is better than Lu Jingzhi!&x201D; Xu Beishen replied immediately.
&x201C;Oh, aren&x2019;t you an expert in your profession? Why don&x2019;t you look for someone from your university? Maybe you can check out some of the senior students.&x201D;
&x201C;Why should I check out the senior students?&x201D; Xu Beishen asked with a puzzled expression on her face.
&x201C;Because your future boyfriend might be going for his examination soon. No matter who he is, perhaps we can congratulate him first. Hahaha.&x201D;
&x201C;Are you asking for a beating?&x201D;
Both of them continued bickering as they continued walking towards the restaurant. At this time, some of the other guests were also enjoying the gourmet food and wine in the restaurant.
It had already been a few hours and yet, there were still no movements or announcements from the production team at all. If this was the case, would the official recording of the fifth issue of the variety program only begin tomorrow?
When Jin Mingchen finally walked into the restaurant, he was carrying more than a dozen paper bags in his hand because he had been shopping at all the luxury stores for the past few hours.
Vera and Xiao Chennan were the last to enter the restaurant but they did not come in together, probably to avoid suspicion from the other guest participants.
&x201C;What did you talk about with the film emperor?&x201D; Jiang Yuning started to pester Vera as soon as Vera sat down right next to her. &x201C;You look happily in love right now&x2026;and you actually dare to make fun of Second Brother and I all the time?&x201D;
&x201C;Ahh&x2026;I came here to participate in the program too, so why is there such a big difference in my life compared to yours? I want to be loved and pursued by the film emperor too&x2026;&x201D; Xu Beishen also chimed in to tease Vera.
Vera could not refute their words because she could not stop smiling.
She could not escape her fate.
&x201C;Who was the one who told me that she would never date anyone from the entertainment industry?&x201D;
&x201C;I just want to get to know him and understand him better,&x201D; Vera replied in a serious tone. &x201C;I can tell that he is serious about me.&x201D;
At this time, Jiang Yuning suddenly had a hunch that she would not be able to keep Vera by her side for long anymore.
However, if Xiao Chennan was really a good and trustworthy man who loved Vera with all his heart, then she had no objections at all.
&x201C;Keep things slow and easy. There is no need to rush things, okay?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could tell that Vera was a complete novice when it came to love and relationships just by her reactions and the way she blushed so easily.
&x201C;Alright then, let&x2019;s eat before we go back to our bedroom.&x201D;
This was because Jiang Yuning started to feel more and more uneasy as time passed. She knew that the balding production team would not make the mission so easy for them. Therefore, the safest way was for them to stay in their rooms and wait for further notice.
The only person who was really enjoying himself and making full use of the facilities in the five-star hotel was none other than Jin Mingchen. After returning to his room, he decided to put on the pair of swimming trunks that he had just bough so that he could go to the infinity pool at the top of the hotel to show off his figure.
At this time, the director was observing the young boy from the hotel&x2019;s main control room and they could not help from saying, &x201C;Wow, does he really think that we have brought him here for a vacation? Bring him over here. We are going to give him a secret task.&x201D;
&x201C;But Director, are you sure that this kid can take on such a huge task and responsibility?&x201D; one of the production team members could not help but voice out his opinion because he was worried.
&x201C;Yes, I have already decided. It is him. This time, we will make him the invincible devil.&x201D;
Therefore, the young boy who was supposed to be swimming in the infinity pool on the rooftop suddenly disappeared&x2026;
However, no one knew anything about it.
Later that night, the three girls were already fast asleep on their beds in the suite.
Suddenly, the sound of the doorbell woke all of them up from their sleep. Jiang Yuning jumped out of her bed immediately before she headed towards the door. At this time, she saw that both Vera and Xu Beishen were already standing in front of the door with a sleepy expression on their faces.
&x201C;Did you not change into your pyjamas before sleeping?&x201D; Vera asked as she pointed a finger at Jiang Yuning&x2019;s clothes.
Xu Beishen was the only one who could understand the reason Jiang Yuning did not even change into her pyjamas.
&x201C;I will open the door,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she pushed the door open immediately. However, to their surprise, there was no one outside their door at all. Instead, there was only a food cart placed right outside their room door and when Jiang Yuning took a look, there was a covered plate placed on top of the food cart. &x201C;Did any one of you order supper?&x201D;
Both Xu Beishen and Vera shook their heads at the same time.
&x201C;Change your clothes first,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly reminded the other two girls.
Xu Beishen and Vera nodded their heads before they hurried inside to change out of their pyjamas. After a short while, the both of them returned to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s side.
At this time, Jiang Yuning did not hesitate to lift the lid that was placed on top of the dinner plate. However, they realized that there was nothing there except for a white envelope.
&x201C;Open it and look inside!&x201D;
Jiang Yuning opened the envelope and saw that there was a note inside: &x201C;Evacuate all the guests in this hotel before eleven o&x2019;clock. Otherwise, they will all be swallowed up by darkness. -Shadow&x201D;
The three of them exchanged glances with one another and they suddenly felt extremely nervous. &x201C;Hurry up and meet up with the rest of the guest participants!&x201D;
As soon as the three of them closed their bedroom door, they saw the other guest participants running out of their rooms.
&x201C;Did all of you receive the letter too?&x201D;
All of the participants started comparing the letters that they had received with one another and they realized that this time, all of them had received the same letter and mission.
&x201C;It is already so late in the middle of the night&x2026;does the production team not intend to let us sleep at all?&x201D; Jin Mingchen yawned as he started complaining. &x201C;I have not even had the opportunity to put on my facial mask yet!&x201D;
&x201C;So, what should we do now, Yuning? Should we believe the threat or not?&x201D; Qi Mo subconsciously asked Jiang Yuning as right now, all the regular cast members of
&x201C;Let&x2019;s try our best to evacuate the guests first,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she frowned. &x201C;We still have about twenty minutes before eleven o&x2019;clock. Why don&x2019;t we try heading to the concierge and ask for the receptionist&x2019;s assistance?&x201D;
&x201C;That sounds like a plan.&x201D;
All ten of the participants headed downstairs in a group as they went to the front desk to confront the receptionist with the envelope in their hands. However, after reading the letter inside the envelope, the receptionist smiled at them before she said, &x201C;Please stop joking around with us like this. You do not have to worry so much. Our hotel is absolutely safe. I believe that this is just a prank.&x201D;
&x201C;What if it turns out to be true? What if this is not just a prank? If something happens to any of your guests, would the hotel bear the responsibility then?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked the other party.
&x201C;Miss, we will definitely send someone to investigate all safety hazards but we will not be able to evacuate the guests in this hotel. After all, we cannot be certain if this is a real situation or just a prank,&x201D; the receptionist replied as she smiled politely at Jiang Yuning.
After listening to the other party&x2019;s response, Jiang Yuning and the rest of the participants left the concierge immediately. At this time, Xiao Chennan decided to speak up all of a sudden.
&x201C;Otherwise, we could actually try to activate the smoke alarm. What do you think of this idea? Since there are ten of us here, each of us can be responsible for one floor.&x201D;
&x201C;What exactly is going through the minds of the production team? Are we really allowed to do all of this in such a high-class hotel? I am afraid that we will be beaten to death&x2026;&x201D; Jin Mingchen could not help but sigh at this time.
