317 A Place Suitable For a Rendezvous

    In the meantime, outside the private room...

    Pei Nanxu was surprised as he listened. "What... You want to meet her now? But... it's not very convenient... It's fine... Let me think of something! I will arrange it for you!"

    After Pei Nanxu hung up, he called his assistant right away.

    "Brother Xu, you called me?"

    "Help me check something..." Pei Nanxu deliberated in silence as he wondered how he should phrase his question.

    "What do you need, Brother Xu?" His assistant looked puzzled.

    Pei Nanxu coughed gently. "Check if there is a suitable... place in the hotel... A quiet, secluded place... Make sure the reporters can't get in!"

    His assistant was still confused. "A suitable place? A place for a discussion?"

    Pei Nanxu had no choice but to word this explicitly. "A place suitable for a rendezvous."

    His assistant was shocked. "Rendezvous? Brother Xu, why are you asking for this?"

    Was he thinking of meeting a girl in private?

    His assistant spluttered, "In... this hotel?"

    Pei Nanxu nodded firmly. "Yes."

    His assistant was close to crying. "Brother Xu, please don't act recklessly. Do you really want to have a rendezvous right now? Even if you want to, you don't have to rush!"

    Pei Nanxu said, "Go and arrange a place. Don't ask anything else."

    His assistant's words were stuck in his mouth, so he didn't dare to protest any longer. He could only accede to Pei Nanxu's request.

    Minutes later, his assistant came running back, looking out of breath. "If you want a hotel room, it's likely that you will be caught by the reporters. If they really catch you entering or exiting the room, there is no way you could clear your name, so that's definitely out.

    I went to search for other places. There is a fire escape route on the thirteenth floor which is quite secluded. There is an abandoned storeroom beside it that people will never chance upon..."

    Pei Nanxu nodded and replied, "Got it."

    He swiftly dialed a number.

    After making the call, he sent a text too. He heaved a sigh of relief before he traipsed back to the private room.

    Meanwhile, Lin Yan was still racking her brains about how to reply to Pei Yucheng's text. While she was thinking, she received a text.

    Pei Nanxu had sent her a rather weird text.

    He had typed, 'Big Sister-In-Law, go to the storeroom beside the fire escape route on the thirteenth floor.'

    Lin Yan blinked in confusion at the text.

    Why was he asking her to go there?

    By then, Pei Nanxu had returned to his seat. Lin Yan unconsciously raised her head and cast him a puzzled look.

    Pei Nanxu nodded and pointed to his phone to urge her to hurry.

    Although Pei Nanxu's request was really weird, Lin Yan didn't question him at all.

    If he had asked her to go there, it had to be about something important.

    Lin Yan stood up, ready to walk away.

    "Lin Yan, where are you going?" Jiang Yiming asked casually.

    "I... I am going to the ladies' room!" Lin Yan replied hastily before she strode away.

    She was worried that she might delay Pei Nanxu, so she made her way swiftly to the meeting point.

    The fire escape route was empty and secluded, so Lin Yan trod softly inside.

    She found the storeroom and blinked as she stared at the entrance. She was perplexed as she studied the rusty old door.

    Why would Pei Nanxu ask her to come here?

    Even though it was her beloved idol's request... Surely, this was too weird?

    If it had been someone else, she would have suspected that a hater had hired an assassin to murder her!
