"Ah… Xingze is there, too!"
Mu Xi exclaimed as she joined them to look. Seeing Yun Shishi's trembling body under the blanket, her heart ached. "Gosh. She's drenched from the rain, and now that she's been trapped in the elevator for so long, she may have caught a cold!"
She turned to the lobby manager angrily, her tears on the verge of spilling. "What's with your hotel?! The receptionist was dozing off, no one was watching the control room, and the security guards were off playing cards! You people don't even know that guests are trapped in the elevator for this long! If something happens to them, can you afford to take responsibility?"
"I'm sorry; I'm sorry!" The hall manager apologized profusely, feeling deeply remorseful.
Mu Yazhe ordered, "Why are you still not hurrying to contact the rescue team?"
"Yes, yes!" He hurriedly contacted the rescue team.
Youyou's little hand touched the screen as tears of concern started pooling in his eyes. "Mommy…"
His father was still not appeased. His eyes narrowed as he stood before the screen, watching how Gu Xingze tightly held his woman.
Being naturally observant, the assistant noted the man's frosty look and explained at once, "Xingze must be afraid that Shishi would be cold; that's why he's hugging her."
"It's useless saying all this now. Saving them is more important," the boy calmly stated.
She was secretly surprised as she was again in awe of this child's maturity and rationality.
By the time the rescue team and fire brigade arrived, it was already near daybreak.
The ambulance came in a flash, too.
Unknown who had divulged the news to the media, but once they heard that Gu Xingze and Yun Shishi were trapped in the elevator, reporters and paparazzi crowded the hotel entrance to get a scoop.
Chen Wei quickly called for backups to prevent these members of the media from interfering with the rescue.
The elevator maintenance personnel started surveying the lift's position. It was concluded that the elevator did not stop on a certain floor level but rather in the basement.
Mu Yazhe and the others stayed in the control room to monitor the situation of the two stuck in the elevator, while the rescue team went down to basement three and opened the lift doors. Mu Xi rushed to the front and shouted, "Xingze, Shishi, are both of you in there?!"
The superstar heard her shouts from inside the elevator and immediately responded, "Yes!"
Yun Shishi, however, had already passed out from the high fever. There was no reaction from her.
"We're trying to rescue you two out now! Are you both alright?"
He promptly responded, "I'm fine, but Shishi's having a high fever. Please hurry!"
Startled, Mu Xi begged, "Please quickly rescue them out!"
"Yes, yes. Miss, calm down first! We'll get the equipment right away."
Because the elevator had stopped at the very bottom, the first thing they needed to do was to align it to a certain floor level using a hand-winding device before they could rescue the two inside.
She immediately said, "Xingze, Shishi, watch for your safety! We'll be able to get you two out shortly."
Gu Xingze lightly patted Yun Shishi's cheeks. In a gentle voice, he said, "Shishi, wake up. Stay awake for a moment. We'll be able to get out in a while."
He could not help hugging her a little tighter. He lightly pecked her on the forehead as a form of encouragement, then raised his head, and closed his eyes as he took a deep breath.
Standing in the control room, Mu Yazhe saw everything that had happened in the elevator. The scene of the superstar kissing his woman on the forehead, in particular, left him clenching his fists.
