After the dishes were served, the two of them hurriedly ate a few mouthfuls before finding an excuse to leave. Huo Xuan nodded and made a call to specially ask Xu Huan to come and try the dishes on the top floor of this restaurant.
A hotel had its own rules. Some of the dishes on the top floor could not be ordered by ordinary VIP guests. Coincidentally, Huo Xuan also wanted to take the opportunity to ask Xu Huan about something else. It was just the right time to ask him to come over for dinner.
Once he heard that they could eat here, Xu Huan arrived in a few minutes. Under the lead of the waiter, he walked straight to the door of the private room.
He raised his hand and pushed open the door of the private room. Xu Huan looked at the huge table of food in front of him with his eyes wide open. He raised his eyebrows in surprise and said, “Brother Huo, didn’t you reject the Supreme VIP card that they gave you? Why are you eating at the top floor now? Has this hotel opened the top floor to ordinary VIPs?”
Huo Xuan was amused by his words. He looked up at Xu Huan indifferently and said with a smile, “This meal isn’t my treat. Your sister-in-law is the one treating you.”
After Huo Xuan said this, Xu Huan finally understood what was going on. He looked at Mo Zhu in surprise and asked in disbelief, “Little Bamboo, you have this hotel’s Supreme VIP card? You really have hidden it well!”
Mo Zhu calmly picked up some food with her chopsticks and replied as she stuffed it into her mouth, “It’s alright, it’s alright. Someone gave it to me the last time when I worked for them. I saw that this card looks quite pretty and accepted it.”
Upon hearing the girl’s words, Xu Huan gave Mo Zhu a thumbs up in his heart. Only Mo Zhu could make accepting such a precious VIP card into such a trivial matter.
“Alright, stop standing at the door in a daze. Hurry up and sit down and eat before the food turns cold. Coincidentally, I have something to ask you.” Huo Xuan waved for Xu Huan to sit down.
The three of them ate quietly for a few minutes. Huo Xuan took out his phone and fiddled with it. He then placed the panorama view of Golden Sands Beach, which he had found on the internet, in front of Xu Huan and pinched the space between his eyebrows. “Didn’t I ask you to check Black Tiger’s location when you came to Beijing? How was it? Did you find anything?”
Xu Huan swallowed a mouthful of meatball soup and looked up at the map on the phone screen. He scratched his head and replied awkwardly, “We didn’t find it. The Golden Sands Beach is too huge. Our people have searched for it more than ten times, but we still didn’t find any traces of Black Tiger.”
After pondering for a few seconds, Xu Huan stuffed another meatball into his mouth and said as he chewed, “Although we didn’t manage to catch him, I asked the guys in charge of catching him and we have some gains from this trip. According to them, we were about to succeed the last time. However, Black Tiger had somehow gotten help from an Internet expert. Not only did the person cover his tracks, but he had also provided him with a superb escape route. That’s why we had lost the pursuit.”
Xu Huan became anxious as he spoke, and he stopped what he was doing. He frowned and continued, “Now that we’ve completely lost track of Black Tiger, I really don’t know where he hired the expert from. He didn’t even leave behind any useful information. Why didn’t we meet such a talent?”
Xu Huan’s words were considered a compliment to Mo Zhu. She raised her eyes and took a meaningful glance at Xu Huan, her eyes revealing a faint smile.
Upon hearing Xu Huan’s explanation and analysis, Huo Xuan nodded in understanding. He picked up his phone and checked the topographic map of Golden Sands Beach in detail. A moment later, he outlined a circle on his phone screen. “Get someone to surround Golden Sands Beach. Place hidden sentries on every street.”
“This is for?” Xu Huan was a little confused by Huo Xuan’s arrangements.
“When Black Tiger escaped, Golden Sands Beach was surrounded by so many of our people. Not a single drop of water could even pass through. Even if he had wings, he definitely wouldn’t be able to fly out, so…” Huo Xuan didn’t finish his sentence. He raised his eyebrows at Xu Huan, signaling Xu Huan to continue his sentence..
