Though dressed casually, the men who entered the hotel had a unique aura.Anyone who was experienced with uniformed men and discerning eyes would be able to guess that these men meant business.The driver outside the hotel was one such man.The moment he saw a few men entering the building,he thought of Uncle Chu's paranoia and broke into a cold sweat.Picking up his cell phone with fumbling hands he dialed Dr Zhang's number.
Inside the building:
The hostess who was still smiling sadly at the young boy's politeness and gentlemanly behavior was terrified when the leader showed his identification.She gulped and called the manager immediately,stuttering as she explained.The manager requested the captain to come inside to discuss a way to handle the situation amicably and without causing damage to the hotel's reputation.The captain of the police was a man in his early forties who knew that the hotel could refuse to cooperate if they felt any peril.So he ordered his men to stay on standby and he went inside the manager's room.
After a short discussion, it was decided that the hotel would quietly ask the other guests to leave under the pretext of an emergency fire procedure.Only the people in the party room would not be allowed to leave.So that no one was alarmed and the people with drugs did not leave,this was to be done quietly.Also the police was aware that there must be those inside that were unaware of the drugs and would be innocent bystanders and then those who would know about the drugs but would rather turn a blind eye.While the hotel staff vacated the building under the watchful eyes of police,the captain instructed them to segregate the party foers into small groups immediately after they entered.This would help them when the students would have time to corroborate their stories.
Captain Doug was a local man who abhorred the fact that teenagers were us in drugs so casually in the country and no one was able to catch them.
This was his chance ,he decided.The students were going to be scared stiff and would easily blurt out the name of their supplier.Just one string was enough to pull apart the mask of the drug dealers.Even if they could not eradicate the entire drug syndicate,they could eliminate a few of it's rats.
The hotel was soon emptied speedily and the police moved stealthily towards the private room.The entrance to the hotel was now closed and all employees were trapped inside as well, as per the police procedures.
Zhang Min who was unaware of the trouble coming behind him,received a call from his father as soon as he was out of he elevator which he ignored.He pushed open the door to the private room and was immediately assaulted by the smoke and smell of alcohol.The loud music,the smell of smoke and sweat made him want to throw up.He could hardly believe that his little sister was a part of this crowd.His eyes tried to adjust to the darkness but he could not see his sister anywhere.He looked around and saw the familiar yet unknown faces.He had seen most of these people in school or the canteen but knew for sure that this crowd was not of good students.he could feel goosebumps on his body.He wanted to find Shi Ai immediately and drag her out of here.When he was unable to find her,he almost turned back to go and ask the hostess if someone had already left but then thought better of it.If Shi Ai had already left, she would have atleast called someone and told them about it.Uncle Chu and he himself had already messaged her.
Frowning,he went deeper into the disgusting crowd and finally he caught a glimpse of the head of a girl who looked like Shi Ai.Still he could not be sure as the next moment,a number of boys were blocking his view but he decisively made his way towards that crowd.The pounding music was giving him a headache and he vowed to punch Yao Yao in the face the next time he saw her,regardless of the fact that she was a girl.Zhang Min,once again could not have predicted that he would have even more reason to punch Yao Yao.Suddenly the music had stopped and the lights were turned on brightly causing the party goers to cover their eyes and protest at the same time.
