She made several calls, but they were to no avail.
Is the hotel’s signal poor?
That’s strange, though.
Qin Zhou had the habit of keeping his phone on at all times, and his phone’s receiving signal was excellent. There were times when her phone failed to receive a single bar of signal whereas his was full.
Yun Shishi made a dozen or so calls in total, yet not once did the line connect.
It got her frowning. She left the bed and went to change her clothes, specifically adding a layer of jacket due to the cold weather tonight, before leaving the hotel room with her room keycard.
From what she recalled, her manager was staying in Room 1502.
Her room was on the fourteenth floor, while his was on the fifteenth floor. The man mentioned his room number to her earlier and told her that she could look for him there in the case that something happened.
Alas, the artist did not pay close attention to what he said then; thus, she did not clearly take note of his room number.
For a moment, she felt a bit annoyed with herself but could only try to search for him based on her fuzzy memory.
When the elevator reached the fifteenth floor, she walked out of it and headed straight to Room 1502. The actress gently pressed on the doorbell.
It rang several times, but no one answered the door.
That got her frowning and feeling confused. Isn’t his room number 1502?
Just as she was about to leave, she heard the door being unlocked behind her.
The woman turned around in surprise, only to see the now open door revealing a tired-looking Hua Jin. He even spoke in a curt and harsh tone, “Who’s there—ah…”
His sentence was left hanging when he saw who it was outside. A streak of surprise flashed across his eyes. The icy look on his face faded off and was replaced by a smile.
“Shishi? Are you looking for me?”
The man was wearing a bathrobe and his damp hair was stuck messily to his forehead. The pleasant surprise he felt made his charming, almond-shaped eyes shone slightly.
Meanwhile, her gaze involuntarily drifted down his body, where the bathrobe, which accentuated his long, slender figure, revealed the sexily defined muscles on his chest slightly.
On set, he was usually seen wearing a form-fitting period costume, which made him look just like a handsome gentleman of ancient times with his slender frame. His waist appeared to be so thin that it could easily snap.
She never imagined that he would be the type to appear slim in clothes yet muscular and stylish with his clothes off.
Realizing that she was gawking at him, the smiling, young man followed her line of sight and looked at his chest, too. He then somewhat shyly adjusted his bathrobe as a teasing smirk grew on his face.
“Is the view nice?”
Her face turned beet-red at once as she tore her gaze away with a turn of her head. She cleared her throat. “I saw nothing.”
“Yep, I know.”
The smiling crescents deepened, but he did not expose her lie.
The woman felt thoroughly embarrassed when she sensed his good intentions. Thus, she spun on her feet at once, all ready to leave.
That instantly wiped the smirk off his face as he nervously asked, “Where are you going?!”
“I’m going back to my room.”
“Aren’t you looking for me?” He called her. “What’s the matter?”
She turned around and immediately explained, “No… I got the wrong room; that’s all. I thought Qin Zhou was staying in that room.”
Hua Jin’s expression froze before a look of desolation settled on his face. He soon understood that the actress had come knocking at his door because she had misremembered her manager’s room number.
Disappointment grew in him. He thought that she had come looking for him; alas, it turned out to be just his wistful thinking.
“You’re actually looking for your manager and not me?”
His question amused her.
