The man turned around. With a gaze from him, the security took the hint and stepped aside. The assistant then ran to his side and asked between her breath, "Where is Shishi?!"
Although the manager was getting increasingly baffled about the situation, he did not dare to ask about it.
With gritted teeth, Mu Xi cast her gaze onto him and anxiously asked, "I'm asking you where she is!"
The man was about to burst into tears. "I really don't know who Yun Shishi is!"
Mu Yazhe narrowed his eyes dangerously. "You don't know who she is? I'm telling you now; she's my woman!"
The manager's face paled instantly.
He turned his head and ordered the front desk to search for the name in the customer database at once.
The assistant, however, could not wait any longer. "There's a dinner party here between Global Pictures and Huanyu Entertainment today! Li Dongliang! You should know who he is, right?! Have you seen him?"
At the mention of that name, he finally recalled something. He stammered, "D-Director Li has just left with a woman, but Master Mu… I'm so sorry about this; I have no idea where has he taken her!"
"How long ago was it?"
"It's been awhile already – about fifteen minutes ago!"
Mu Xi still wanted to question him further, but from her periphery, she saw Mu Yazhe suddenly head toward the entrance. Without further thinking, she hurriedly followed him. "Chairman Mu, please think of something; she must've been taken away by Li Dongliang…"
He was in an irritable mood; hence, his tone was harsher.
She no longer dared to speak after she got frightened by him.
Taking out his phone, he dialed his assistant's number. Once the call connected, he coldly commanded, "Go find out Li Dongliang's current location pronto! Also, get Huanyu's PR head to give me a call!"
"Yes, Master Mu!"
He then hung up the call and got into his car.
Standing outside the car, Mu Xi's hands entangled together in trepidation. She did not dare to get in the car despite her worry for her artiste.
The man rubbed the spot between his brows as he looked at her and ordered, "Get in!"
She was startled by this, and when she regained her senses, she nodded and boarded the car.
The atmosphere inside the car was extremely stifling as it sped along the road.
She thought that the man's oppressive aura was practically lethal.
She did not dare to say anything, and even her breathing was done surreptitiously. She only carefully sized up his cold side-profile while that pair of frosty eyes stared straight ahead.
He wore a cold expression on his face; his distant eyes were intriguingly like the abyss.
Even his angular features appeared deeper and more exquisite in the shadows.
She thought to herself, He must be very worried about Shishi.
A phone suddenly rang in this quiet moment, startlingly her.
He gave her a side-eye before expressionlessly answering the call. "Hello."
"Chairman Mu, I'm Kong Xiaoqian." The woman's sweet voice came from the other end. "I didn't think you'd remember me! Why would you suddenly think of me today?"
His lips lifted into an ambiguous smile. If the woman were to see his current facial expression, she would surely be trembling in fear.
"Is your esteemed father feeling well?"
The PR head sweetly replied, "Very well! Thanks to the Mu Group, my father started developing the East Bay project!"
