As Zhang Min and his team fought for control,there was a sudden crash within the server of the games host.This resulted in a lot of frustration and swearing from all members of the teams and the final were delayed for the time being.Zhang Min angrily left his chair and then picking up his cell phone,made his way out.He was in no mood to curse anymore or discuss any games.That was thoroughly ruined.
Outside,he hailed a passing cab and pressed the side switch on his phone to check the time.But his battery was exhausted and the phone's screen remained dark.Throwing his phone on the seat while inwardly cursing his bad luck,he gave the driver the address and then closed his eyes and leaned back.He was in a really foul mood and had to wish to talk to anyone.
Reaching home,he stopped the taxi a bit further away from the house so that no one would know that he was back and then quietly slipped into the house from the back door.
Not bothering to turn on the lights,he plugged in the phone charger and fell face first onto the bed.His scowl had yet to ease and he could not help but wonder if someone had done this purposely to sabotage the play.Their team had been playing so well and they were a few moves away from winning!Punching his pillow a few times did not ease his frustrations.Finally he sat up in bed and decided to look for Shi Ai.
He went out and moved straight towards the girl's door.After knocking a couple of time,when there was no answer,Zhang Min went back to his room dejectedly.Maybe she was out studying still.Maybe he could play some other game.With that thought he went inside and turned on the light.The moment the light was turned on,Zhang Min saw the note.After reading this,his scowl was even more fierce than earlier and he rushed to his phone to call Shi Ai and berate her but her phone was unreachable and that is when he saw the messages that Uncle Chu had sent.
Running down to the kitchen,Zhang Min slammed straight into Uncle Chu,hurting his nose in the process.Rubbing his nose,he glared at uncle Chu but before he could say anything,Uncle Chu caught his hand and pulling him along said,"Young master,you need to go and bring little miss back.I have a bad feeling.The driver has also come back and he will take you there.Go fast..go.."
Before Zhang Min could utter a word,he had been pushed into the waiting car and the car had driven off.
Zhang Min shook his head and decided to call that Yao Yao girl but her phone remained unanswered.
Zhang Min resigned himself to go and rescue his sister.Even if that silly Yao Yao had not created any trouble,Shi Ai was going to be in for a lecture tonight.
Reaching the destination a few minutes earlier,he wentbinside slowly and asked about the room which a Miss Yan Yao must have booked.After checking the register,the hostess frowned and said apologetically,"I am sorry Sir.No one by this name has made a reservation with us.Zhang Min frowned at this and confirmed, "Miss,are you sure that no one by that name is here?My driver dropped my sister here a little while back and I am here to pick her up."
The hostess checked again and then once again apologized, "I am sorry Sir.There really is no such person here."
Zhang Min was astonished at this turn of events.Shi Ai was not one to do any tricks and not inform anyone about the change of venue so there had to be some mistake.Putting on his most charming smile,Zhang Min looked at the hostess and asked,"Miss,if you don't mind,may I see the register.Maybe the booking was made by another friend and if I see the name I might just recognize them."
Though Zhang Min did not know any names,he could not be sure that the hostess was not lying.The hostess was a girl in her early twenties and though Zhang Min was casually dressed,she felt dazed by his expression and simply turned the register for him to see.Of course he did not expect to see Shi Ai's name as the person who had made the booking.He checked the room number and immediately knew that this was no simple karaoke as the biggest room had been booked. Just what had Shi Ai gotten herself into.He thanked the hostess and said,"Here.My sister is in this room.I will make my way there.Can you please point me in the right direction?"
What Zhang Min could not have predicted that trouble was yet to arrive.As he went into the elevator,several policemen in casual clothes,entered the premises.
