Right then, Cheng Xi fervently wished that she could fly. Then, she cursed that Fu Mingyi wasnt in front of her; if he were, she would have kicked him in the face a few times first!
Was he a person? How long had it been? Including today, it hadnt even been two months since Shen Weis incident!
Cheng Xi was so infuriated that she started trembling, but when she met up with Shen Wei, she was startled to see that Shen Wei almost seemed serene. Shen Wei even smiled at Cheng Xi as she grumbled, Donglai Hotels security is too good. I cant find out which room theyre in no matter who I ask.
Cheng Xi glanced at her, and only after confirming that Shen Wei was truly calm and not just pretending did she take a deep breath and ask, What in the world is going on?
The two of them were in Shen Weis living room, sitting on a sofa. Cheng Xi had to know the entirety of the situation before she could decide what the best way to help Shen Wei was—honestly, it wasnt appropriate to ask Lu Chenzhou for help. No matter what Fu Mingyi was doing in Donglai Hotel, as long as he wasnt breaking the law, it would be illegal for a hotel staff member to reveal a clients private information.
Regardless of the legality, Cheng Xi was furious with Fu Mingyis actions.
Shen Wei didnt say anything, and just handed her phone to Cheng Xi. On the screen was a map of Donglai Hotel, and on the map were two dots: one labeled bastard, and the other slut.
Shen Wei was very blunt.
At this moment, the two dots were very close to each other, somewhere within Donglai Hotel.
Cheng Xi, in disbelief, asked, ……You planted a tracking device in their phones?
Cheng Xi gaped.
Shen Wei smiled. You want to chastise me and say that its illegal, right? But I also have no other choice. I want to get a divorce, but no one around me is alright with that. Since the two of them are so inseparable, then instead of letting them skulk around in the shadows, why dont I just reveal their actions to everyone, and let them be happy?
Her tone, as Fu Mingyis legal wife, was righteous and magnanimous. However, why did it feel so incompatible with her words?
Cheng Xi didnt even know what to say anymore.
Shen Wei continued, saying, Before you came over, I already contacted Lu Chenzhou, and he refused. Thus, I could only ask you to convince him. Cheng Xi, dont worry. I wont make a big fuss, and I wont make people feel uncomfortable. I just want to verify my theory, and to let them know that Im not an ignorant fool.
Cheng Xi was silent. After a while, she sighed lamentably. I might not be able to convince him.
Lu Chenzhou was a particularly principled man, and she could almost write an entire book on the walls that he had erected around himself. Furthermore, something like this would clearly be damaging to Donglai Hotels reputation.
Shen Wei then said, Please try. If it works, then it works. Otherwise, thats fine as well. Since theyre still meeting up, they surely wont only meet at Donglai Hotel, and not all hotels are as secure with their clients privacy as Donglai Hotel. After Shen Wei said this, she lowered her gaze and smiled lightly. Its just that I want to stop thinking about him as soon as I can.
This last sentence sounded normal, but Cheng Xis eyelids involuntarily twitched, as she had the creeping suspicion that Shen Wei was planning something again.
It was only later on that Cheng Xi realized why Shen Wei needed Lu Chenzhous help. Although Donglai Hotels system seemed normal at first glance, and although any of the hotel employees could get into the system, there was one part that no one else could access.
The virtual space is what distinguishes Donglai Hotel from other hotels, and apparently, the architecture is patterned like a honeycomb. The rooms arent connected anywhere, and even if I did get inside, I wouldnt know where their room was. Thus, I need the hotel staffs help.
Only after Cheng Xi asked did she realize that this so-called virtual space was the underwater adventure that Lu Chenzhou had taken her on that time.
Honestly, that really was a good place to do illicit things.
With that, Cheng Xi called Lu Chenzhou without much hope.
Ever since Cheng Xi had told him that their dates didnt have to be at a fixed time, Lu Chenzhou had finally started dating her only when he had time. However, he had also started ignoring her when he didnt, causing Cheng Xi a fair amount of grief. o(╯□╰)o
She had been busy recently, and it had been a few days since she had last seen him.
When Lu Chenzhou received her call, he was in a meeting. He had been out on a business trip for the last few days, and when he returned, there was a veritable mountain of tasks for him to do in the office.
Cheng Xi concisely explained Shen Weis request, and Lu Chenzhou reply was, as expected, Do you really think that Id betray my clients privacy just for this? His tone was cold, and despite knowing that that was just how he was, Cheng Xis face still turned red, and she could only pretend that she didnt mind, saying, Then, alright, sorry to bother you.
And then she hung up.
Back in his conference room, Lu Chenzhou glanced at his phone briefly before continuing the meeting. During a break, the lawyer by his side nosily asked, Director Lu, whos trying to investigate our clients affairs?
He thought that it might have been the police or some government department doing it unauthorized, because one of Donglai Hotels biggest selling points was its confidentiality and its fierce protection of its clients privacy.
Lu Chenzhou looked down at his file. Cheng Xi.
Oh. The lawyer nodded, and then he suddenly realized—wait, wasnt Cheng Xi the Dr. Cheng from Renyi? This lawyer was the one who had helped the two of them draft an exceedingly strange relationship agreement, and he had also visited Lu Chenzhous ward frequently while he was in the hospital. Thus, he clearly understood that, even if his boss hadnt said anything, his grandparents had already long since decided on her as their granddaughter-in-law.
Lu Chenzhous grandmother even called him quite often, saying, Our little Zhous not very adept at chasing his girlfriend. So please help give him some pointers if you have the time.
As he observed Lu Chenzhous expression, he carefully said, Is it really alright for you to reject her like that?
Wouldnt you hurt her with such a direct and officious tone? Itd be fine if you cushioned it at least a little. She is someone you love, after all!
Lu Chenzhou glanced back at him.
The lawyer realized that he had made a blunder, and quickly backpedaled, saying, Dr. Cheng doesnt seem like a nosy person. Did something come up? And even if you cant cushion it, you could at least say a few words about how its just standard company policy or something like that.
Lu Chenzhou flipped through his files, coolly replying, She wants to help someone catch her husband in the act. He raised his head. Do you want to help her?
The lawyer was speechless. ……
Cheng Xi and Shen Wei were just planning on leaving when Cheng Xi said, Ill treat you to a meal. A new grilled fish place had opened up nearby, and her friends had all given it good reviews. And now felt like a good time to try something new.
Shen Wei used to like grilled fish very much in the past.
Shen Wei smiled dispassionately and stood up unhurriedly, but before the two of them could reach the door, Lu Chenzhous lawyer had arrived.
He hurriedly called out, Dr. Cheng.
Cheng Xi turned around. She recognized him, and naturally stopped, waited for him to approach, and greeted him politely. Lawyer Du. And then she introduced him to Shen Wei.
Lawyer Du smiled as he saw the two of them. Are the two of you planning on going somewhere?
Cheng Xi nodded. Yes.
She didnt want to wait here with Shen Wei. It was still early in the day, and who knew how long Fu Mingyi and his mistress would stay in there for? Whats more, the excuse that Fu Mingyi had given to Shen Wei was that he was having business dealings. If a man were to indeed engage in dealings, then it wouldn't be strange for him to stay out even through the night. Though, they couldnt stay there the entire night, could they?
Waiting was tiring, and Cheng Xi didnt want Shen Wei to keep tiring herself out like this. Whats more, even if they stood watch here, the hotel portion of Donglai had three exits, and the underwater club portion, out of safety considerations, had even more. Thus, they wouldnt know which entrance to cover even if they wanted to do that.
But the hotel employees clearly knew which exits were connected to which rooms.
Because the two of them were at the door, Lawyer Du requested them to move one side, and then said with a smile, Director Lu wishes to invite you both to Wangjiang for a meal. Its quite popular, but given the current time, we wont have to wait a long while, and the dishes will come out very quickly. It might be annoying for them to serve one dish at a time, so we can ask them to serve it all at once.
Wangjiang was another auxiliary venture of Donglais, opposite them behind a set of large doors. If Cheng Xi didnt misunderstand Lawyer Dus words, then he was hinting that it was possible for them to catch Fu Mingyi and Gong Hengjin in the act, as long as they waited outside that door and thought of a way to call them out together.
Cheng Xi was silent, but Shen Wei suddenly asked, Could it be that there arent that many rooms associated with each exit?
Lawyer Dus eyes opened wide.
Twenty? A shake of the head.
Lawyer Dus head shook even more violently.
Cheng Xi looked at him carefully. There are eight, she told Shen Wei after some consideration. When you asid eight, his pupils and his facial muscles both contracted. This means that you were right, because he became slightly nervous.
Lawyer Dus face fell.
Cheng Xi nodded. Yup, eight rooms, alright.
Lawyer Du couldnt even think of a response. ……
