&x201C;How long will you be gone for?&x201D;
&x201C;Who knows?&x201D; Wen Tong answered in a cool manner.
&x201C;Wen Tong&x2026;&x201D; After a short moment of silence. Gao Mengjin suddenly called out to Wen Tong. &x201C;Do you want to&x2026;file for a divorce? Since it is already impossible for us to return to how it was like in the past&x2026;let&x2019;s just let each other go&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I am not going to divorce you!&x201D; Wen Tong replied without turning around to even look at Gao Mengjin in the face. &x201C;Although I do not care for it anymore, I will never let go of my position as Mrs. Gao. Not in this lifetime at least.&x201D;
&x201C;How long are you going&x2026;to hate my mother?&x201D;
&x201C;Until the day I die.&x201D;
The couple had already been married for eight years.
They had always been very loving and sweet until Wen Tong got pregnant one day. Wen Tong had never expected that her mother-in-law would collude with her doctor to trick her into an induced labor when she was three months pregnant, which caused her to lose her fetus when Gao Mengjin was away on a business trip.
Ever since that day, the feud between the two women eventually drew a wedge between Wen Tong and Gao Mengjin.
&x201C;Wen Tong, you are being very unfair towards me&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;I am not stopping you from addressing and fulfilling your physical needs outside. How am I still being unfair to you? Aren&x2019;t you having a good time with all those women you have outside?&x201D;
&x201C;I did not do anything&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;It is very late now. Just go to bed already.&x201D;
At this time, Gao Mengjin had no choice but to return to his bedroom with his briefcase in his hand.
In fact, the only reason why Gao Mengjin had so many women outside was simply because he wanted to protect Wen Tong from getting verbally abused and attacked by his family. It was only because of his indecent behavior that his family could not force Wen Tong to do anything that she did not want to.
He did not care if everyone looked down on him because of his behavior but this was the only thing that he could do to protect his wife. He wanted her to be free from all her misery.
He had almost become a father and because of his mother&x2019;s evil plans, he lost both his daughter and wife at the same time. His pain was no lesser that what Wen Tong felt.
However, in recent years, he had been hoping that he could reconcile with Wen Tong and that the they could both move on with their lives and live happily together. Unfortunately, as time passed by, Wen Tong treated him even colder than before and he suddenly felt very tired. He felt as though he could not live like this any longer.
When the butler saw him sitting in the living room drinking wine in the middle of the night, he could not help but say, &x201C;Young Master, why don&x2019;t you call Young Master Wen Luo and ask him for help?&x201D;
&x201C;What can he do?&x201D;
&x201C;You have to try and resolve the misunderstanding between you and the young mistress. Everything was not your fault in the first place. Therefore, I hope that you will not give up when there is still a glimmer of hope. If you do not try, you will never know if you could have succeeded in the first place.&x201D;
Gao Mengjin sat up straight on the sofa and after a moment of deliberation, he finally took his cell phone out from his pocket and dialled Wen Luo&x2019;s number.
&x201C;Are you free now? Can we meet up? I cannot wait until tomorrow because your sister will be leaving then!&x201D;
After that, the butler then hurriedly drove Gao Mengjin to Wen Luo&x2019;s private apartment.
As soon as the two men met, Gao Mengjin started venting out his frustrations. After listening to Gao Mengjin&x2019;s complaints and his side of the story, Wen Luo finally understood what the fundamental problem between the couple was.
&x201C;Are you&x2026;still in love with my sister?&x201D; Wen Luo asked as he sat down on the sofa and looked at the man who was standing by the window.
&x201C;How could I not be in love with her? If I did not love her anymore, I would have been liberated a long time ago.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. Let me tell you something. My sister is definitely still in love with you. Otherwise, she would have already left you a long time ago instead of holding on to the title and position as your wife or as Mrs. Gao. I understand her behavior too well. It is impossible to stop her from leaving tomorrow. However, I believe that I will be able to make up an excuse for her to return to Luo City in about a weeks&x2019; time. During this time, you can try your best to sort out the problems that you are both facing in your relationship. I will also ask someone for advice in order to help you both you, okay?&x201D; Wen Luo asked Gao Mengjin in a sincere manner.
&x201C;Who will you be asking for help?&x201D;
&x201C;Sister-in-law! She has the most outrageous ideas. Moreover, hasn&x2019;t she become friends with my sister lately? However, she is participating in the recording of at the moment. She will definitely help you when she returns.&x201D; Wen Luo placed all of his hopes on Jiang Yuning. He was confident that she would definitely be able to help Gao Mengjin and Wen Tong through this situation.
This was because his sister had never made any new or close friends after so many years, and he was also pleasantly surprised to find out that Jiang Yuning and his sister had hit it off almost immediately. This could only mean that Jiang Yuning was the perfect candidate.
If Jiang Yuning could handle Lu Jingzhi, who else in the world wouldn&x2019;t she be able to handle?
&x201C;I&x2026;do you really think that there is a chance we could return to how it was in the past?&x201D; Gao Mengjin asked as he wiped his face. There was a slight glimmer of hope in his eyes.
&x201C;If you do not try, you will never know,&x201D; Wen Luo replied as he patted Gao Mengjin&x2019;s shoulder. &x201C;However, I still think that your mother owes my sister an apology.&x201D;
Gao Mengjin was silent for a moment before he nodded. &x201C;I will do anything as long as she is willing to return to my side.&x201D;
&x201C;Sister-in-law will definitely help you. You don&x2019;t have to worry about anything.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning, who was still facing a crisis at the five star hotel at this time, did not know that such a huge responsibility had been assigned to her.
At this time, it was raining very heavily at the five star hotel and there was a very bad thunderstorm.
There were completely no movement in the hotel and it was completely dark all over. All the guests were shrouded in terror and fear and because of that, most of them camped out at the lobby on the first floor. They were hoping that they could be the first to flee as soon as the hotel door opened.
Jiang Yuning did not realize anything and she was still fast asleep in her suite when she suddenly heard a loud scream. At this time, Jiang Yuning immediately sat up on the sofa as she woke up in shock.
Xu Beishen was sitting directly across from her and the two of them quickly put on their shoes as they headed downstairs to the hotel lobby.
&x201C;My child is missing&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Has anyone seen my child?&x201D; A mother of a child was crying and screaming out loud in the lobby as she was looking for her baby.
&x201C;My child is gone&x2026;where is my child?&x201D;
&x201C;My brother is missing too&x2026;&x201D;
In order to prevent anyone from panicking and in order to keep the situation under control, Jiang Yuning quickly said, &x201C;Don&x2019;t worry. They have probably just returned to their rooms to look for you.&x201D;
&x201C;No&x2026;I have already searched all over the place and I cannot find my child at all. My son is missing. He is gone&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;My child is missing too. What do I do now?&x201D;
As the crowd of people continued making a scene, the lights in the hotel came on all of a sudden. After a moment of silence, an intermittent announcement was broadcasted over the hotel radio. &x201C;Congratulations to everyone for making it this far. However, you do not have much time left. Your time is running out because the Shadow will continue devouring you. The longer you remain in this hotel, the more souls would be captured and imprisoned. Therefore, you should start looking for the password to escape from the hotel!&x201D;
The strange and creepy mechanical sounds made the guests in the lobby shiver in fear. Moreover, the flashes of light exacerbated and made the environment even scarier and more horrifying than it should be.
After listening to the announcement, Jiang Yuning felt really frustrated and annoyed.
The production team was really too much this time!
The people in the lobby were really experts in acting. They were putting up an extremely good performance.
&x201C;What should we do now? Do you have any plans in mind?&x201D; Xu Beishen asked as she leaned against Jiang Yuning&x2019;s arm.
&x201C;Let&x2019;s gather everyone together first. We need to hold a short meeting together,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied immediately. &x201C;I have some ideas in mind but I need everyone&x2019;s cooperation for my idea to succeed.&x201D;
Xu Beishen quickly ran around to gather the rest of the participants and guests. She quickly found all of them, including Vera and Xiao Chennai.
&x201C;Yuning, what do you have in mind?&x201D; Qi Mo asked as soon as they gathered. &x201C;I cannot even figure out what the game rules are&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;There is no rules at all. If we find the password, we will be able to open the hotel door and we will all be rescued. However, if we fail to find the password, then more and more people will go missing in batches.&x201D;
&x201C;The hotel is so huge! How are we supposed to find and figure out the password?&x201D; Xu Beishen asked.
&x201C;I think that we would definitely be able to gather some clues from the missing people,&x201D; Xiao Chennan, who was standing in front of Vera, suddenly appeared and spoke up.
