Mu Xi asked, "Miss, where is the hotel's control room? We'd like to see the security footage if possible."
The front-desk clerk yawned before giving her a wary glance. "And you are?"
"I'm from 'The Green Apple' production team; we booked ten rooms at your hotel."
Blankly, the staff said, "It's not long since I've been transferred here. Although I heard that a production team booked our hotel, why do you want to see the security footage?"
"Of course, it's because of an emergency. An artiste from our production team has gone missing after entering your hotel, and we can't reach her on the phone no matter what. Since this is the place she's disappeared, we wish to check the security footage…"
The front-desk clerk rubbed her sleepy eyes but apologetically refused, "I'm sorry! Shouldn't the production team report directly to the police someone goes missing?"
"… Report to the police?"
"That's right. Don't mind me asking this, but how long has this person gone missing?"
"From 10 PM till now."
"Then, report to the police."
Youyou piped in from the side. "The police will only make a record of our statement and only after 48 hours will they file a 'missing person' report."
Mu Xi nervously explained, "Actually, the current situation may not require the police; we just need to know where she went after entering the hotel."
"It's like this…" The front-desk clerk frowned and then carefully explained, "We're not qualified to retrieve the security footage unless the police step forward."
"No authority," she admitted. "Previously, we had a customer whose laptop and other belongings got stolen and requested for us to check the security footage, too. In the end, it was only retrieved through the police's interference."
The boy furrowed his brows.
The lax service of this hotel really made people worry.
Mu Xi rushed to one side to call the police.
In the end, the reply she got was that few police officers were on the night shift at the station. Some were out on patrol, and two were making a record, so they were unable to accept more reports for the time being.
She was advised to file a 'missing person' report after twelve hours had passed or wait until 8 AM; by then, the police station should be able to dispatch someone to take stock of the situation.
Upon hanging up the call, the little lad asked about the situation. She answered him truthfully.
She fretted, unconsciously asking him for his opinion.
She did not realize that she, an adult, had actually asked a child for his opinion on what to do.
Youyou pursed his rosy lips slightly.
Following which, he thought of something and took out his phone to make a call.
After ringing for a long while, the call was finally answered.
He opened his mouth. "Daddy, I'm now at Haotai Hotel. There's an emergency; come over for a second."
Mu Xi was dumbstruck and gloomily stared at his calm face as he hung up the call.
She could see the anxiety and nerves in the child's eyes, but even though he was deeply worried, he was still able to make sound decisions. It was enough to make people gasp in admiration.
Over ten minutes later, a sports car parked at the hotel entrance. The slender and handsome man that had appeared at the door gave her a shock.
Only then did she realize why she found the child's features familiar.
She looked blankly between the father and son, and the corner of her lips twitched.
The father of this child was actually… the crown prince of the Mu Group, Mu Yazhe!
She suddenly got the reason for his murderous aura and furious glare when he witnessed Yun Shishi being bullied and slapped by Yan Bingqing.
She also understood why Yan Bingqing was banned and driven into a corner overnight!
