Chapter 44

Doris became alert and cautious as soon as Loreen said that. Charlie had just asked her to keep an eye on Loreen the day before yesterday. As soon as Loreen reported to duty, she asked about the chairman. It seemed very odd and unusual. Doris eyed the pretty young lady and thought to herself, ‘What is your purpose of coming all the way to Emgrand Group?’

She said with a smile, “Our chairman rarely comes into the office, but if he does, I’ll tell him and I’ll notify you if he wants to see you.”

Loreen was a little disappointed, but she kept a smile on her face and said, “Okay, thank you, Miss Young!”

As soon as Doris returned to her office, she immediately reported the matter to Charlie. Charlie became more vigilant as well when he heard that Loreen had requested to see him as soon as she reported to work. Sure enough, the lady had literally come for him. What was her purpose in approaching him? Was she trying to harm him or seduce him? Regardless of her purpose, Charlie felt irked and irritated. Hence, he decided to keep his distance from Loreen, especially since he couldn’t let her discover his true identity!

***

On the night of Loreen’s first day of work, Claire made a reservation at a high-end restaurant for dinner with Loreen. As Claire’s husband, Charlie had to come along, which made him a little depressed. He wanted to keep a distance from Loreen but they had to have dinner together tonight. Despite the reluctance, he prepared himself and went to the restaurant with Claire. It wasn’t until they arrived at the venue that Charlie realized that Claire booked a table at the Sky Garden of Shangri-La!

The Sky Garden Ballroom was usually reserved for the prominent guests and members of the hotel, so they had never provided any kind of private suite service. However, Charlie’s action of booking the entire place on his wedding anniversary was unprecedented for Shangri-La. The wedding anniversary was only three days away. There was a big and eye-catching notice at the entrance of the hotel that said, “The Sky Garden is reserved for honorable guests and the venue will be unavailable for all guests during this period of time. Thank you for your cooperation!”

Everyone was shocked when they saw the notice! Did someone book the whole Sky Garden of Shangri-La? They had never done this before! Rumors had it that the children of several leaders in the city wanted to hold their wedding banquet here but were rejected without exception. Who had such an influence and power to reserve the Sky Garden with Shangri-La?

Claire gaped in surprise when she saw the notice. “Wow, someone actually booked the Sky Garden? That is so incredible!”

Charlie chuckles in amusement. “What’s so incredible about it? It’s just a ballroom, why can’t people book it?”

“No, you don’t understand,” Claire said in a serious tone, “This Shangri- La is not some local enterprise but a luxurious global hotel chain. The Sky Garden is its unique and major feature and is exclusively for their top members. If they allow everyone to make a reservation, each top member would take turns to reserve it on a daily basis, causing the other members to miss out on the privilege to use the venue. Thus, they’ve simply prohibited reservation of the ballroom.” Then, Claire sighed and continued, “I wonder who the person who can reserve the place is. He or she must be someone extraordinary!”

Charlie said with a deliberate smile, “Maybe he’s someone who really loves his wife and wants to hold a wedding here for her!” Claire said in an astonished tone, “Wow! Holding a wedding for his wife here?! Then he must really love his wife. It must be nice to be his wife!”
