Zhang Lisheng grinned noncommittally at the Catholic girl. At this moment, the door to the room just so happened to open again as the waiters politely sent him the first round of five main dishes, causing the young man to chew his food and no longer say anything until he finished the three rounds of fifteen main courses.
Due to the reason that the atmosphere in the room had been made awkward by Zhang Lisheng, while he was eating, everybody could only eat tastelessly and made small talk with each other awkwardly.
Alas, when he finally finished eating his lunch, Wallace hurriedly said, “Sheila, since Mr. Lisheng has already returned to New York, there’s no need for you and Trish to comfort Tina anymore…”
“Oh, my dear Wallace. It’s true that Trish and I no longer have to console Tina but Lisheng has finally extricated himself out of the dangerous island in the supernatural realm with great difficulty. Shouldn’t we celebrate for him together?” Sheila interrupted her boyfriend’s words and grinned as she looked at Zhang Lisheng. “Lisheng, what kind of party would you like? ‘wild and unrestrained’? Or, ‘ladies and gentlemen’?”
“Thank you for your kindness, Sheila, but why don’t you go for the ‘wild and unrestrained’ alone with Wallace? I’ll…” Zhang Lisheng, who had swallowed the last meat roll with mushrooms, wiped his mouth with a napkin before looking at Sheila who was teasing him.
All of a sudden, a series of bird chirping sounds resonated from the phone in his pocket, stopping the young man from continuing his words. Taking out his phone from the pocket, he noticed that it was a mail notification.
As he clicked on it eagerly, sketches of complex and detailed ship structures appeared on the screen of his phone.
A satisfactory smile unconsciously crept upon the corner of Zhang Lisheng’s mouth as he continued, “I still have a very important job to do in the afternoon.”
“Of course you have a very important job to do! The name of the job is called ‘Tina’!” Sheila smiled and stood up from the seat to look at Tina. “Don’t be afraid, my dear sister! I was merely joking! I really didn’t have the intention to destroy your ‘happy hours’. Let’s go, Trish, we also have company from our boyfriends so let us stop being the thorn in somebody’s eyes right here and then now that we’ve already finished eating.”
Upon hearing Sheila’s words, the Catholic girl who was by the side stood up and kissed Tina on the cheek. “We should let you be alone with Lisheng. See you tomorrow, sis!”
“Tomorrow? No way! The lives of us ordinary people are just too boring so I plan to sleep and listen to Lisheng’s remarkable story on that Shrimp Island or something !” Sheila also ran to kiss Tina’s cheeks. “My dear! Go do what you love right away! Trish and I will go find you for dinner later. See you tonight!”
After the girl finished saying so, she held onto her boyfriend’s arm and walked out of the room at an elegant pace.
After Sheila left, other people also left the restaurant and scattered about like the stars.
When a young couple in their teens and twenties reunite after a long time, under the influence of their pheromones, of course they would naturally think about making love when they were alone together. This was human nature and there was nothing wrong about it.
After entering the newly purchased Red Lincoln RV with Zhang Lisheng, Tina looked at the young man’s face from a side angle from the driver’s seat and started the car before asking, “Baby, which hotel do you want to go?”
“Whichever you like.”
“Four Seasons it is then! I saw from the advertisement that the newly launched Christmas Honeymoon Suite looks very interesting,” Tina said as she stepped on the accelerator and turned the car into the street.
The bright red SUV shuttled on the streets of New York and soon arrived at the Four Seasons Hotel in the Upper West Side.
It just so happened that there was only one Christmas Honeymoon Suite left. Usually, it could only be stayed by newly married couples but since two true big shots of two young generations of the Vanity Fair in New York wanted to stay, nobody else would be so insensible enough to persist in their principles.
“Miss Tina and Mr. Lisheng, since the two of you want to use it, we’ll make an exception for you. However, please don’t spread it out to the public.” The hotel lobby’s assistant manager said so after settling the check-in procedure in a redundantly mysterious whisper.
After that, he personally escorted Zhang Lisheng and Tina to the door of the room. It was only until the room door had been opened that this newly promoted young man finally retreated with a smile, not crossing his mind that his over diligence was actually appearing to be redundant in the eyes of some people.
“That expression of that lobby manager is really annoying! He really made me feel as though I’ve turned into Sheila!” Looking at the gradually disappearing back of the lobby assistant, Tina pushed the door and walked into the room. “I just want to enjoy myself properly with my boyfriend whom I’ve not seen for more than three months… Oh God! T-This is so romantic!”
A sparkling wallpaper that looked like snowflakes was attached to the wall; a huge Christmas tree filled with beautiful lanterns and shining stars stood in the middle of the room; four crystal balls that were slowly rotating stirring up the flying snowflakes inside were hung at the four corners of the ceiling. The meticulous decorations of the Four Seasons Hotel ‘Christmas Honeymoon Suite’ captured the girl’s heart and made her forget about her complaints.
However, in the eyes of Zhang Lisheng who followed her into the room, he did not see any trace of romance after glancing the surroundings a few times.
“Tina, isn’t this a very normal and traditional Christmas-styled…” As the young man was blurting out his comments with a curled mouth, his mouth was suddenly covered by the girl when he was only halfway through his comment.
Kicking the door with her foot to shut the door tightly, Tina covered the young man’s mouth with one hand with her face flushed with anger. Untying his belt gently with one hand, she murmured, “You really don’t know romance, baby! For this reason, you need to be punished… you have to be punished…”
Then, it was the typical US passion that cut into its direct theme right away, all the way from the red carpet under the Christmas tree in the living room to the soft bed in the bedroom.
After that, it went from the soft bed of the bedroom to the washstand next to the bright mirror in the bathroom; which finally returned to under the Christmas tree in the living room from the bathroom sink.
In the end, the girl who wanted to ‘punish’ the young man was ‘punished’ by the young man till her entire body turned a shade of red, before finally dozing off into deep sleep due to exhaustion. Zhang Lisheng, who had never thought of seeing two girls lying by his side on the same day with the complete same look and reason, looked at Tina’s beautiful face that had a beautiful satisfied smile on it. A guilty look appeared on his expression as he sighed, before carrying her from the living room back to the bedroom and gently placing her on the soft bed.
After that, the young man walked out of the bedroom and sat naked on the sofa in the corner of the living room. Holding onto his phone, he began to read the emails that the other girl sent him regarding the ancient wind and human wooden boats.
The solar ship invented by the Egyptian civilization during 3000 BC looked like a canoe with sails. However, in fact, the bottom of the ship was actually supported by a keel and its size was completely arbitrary.
The ancient Greek’s trireme was the ancestor of the double-sail wooden boat. After the mainsail was retracted, it could form a jib-like shape together with the auxiliary sail. It could sail with a breeze but in the case of no wind, the rowers could also provide enough power for the wooden boat to sail freely at sea.
The Viking ship was the only contribution of the ferocious Vikings to human civilization. Its unique overlapping joints made the ship reach an astonishing length of 30 meters, with a displacement exceeding 50 tons.
As Zhang Lisheng looked at the information of these ancient ships, he began to estimate the actual level of the carpenters of the Tudenan tribe on the supernatural realm’s island and soon fell into a deep state of pondering.
Unknowingly, the sky gradually turned dark and the sudden noise of the bedroom door opening snapped the young man back to reality who was deep in his thoughts. He put down his phone and looked at Tina, who was giving off the fragrance of shampoo while wearing a bathrobe after showering, who was walking towards him.
“You’re awake, Tina.”
“Yeah, I was awakened by Sheila’s call.” After the girl walked lazily behind Zhang Lisheng, she wrapped her arms around him and kissed him. All of a sudden, she turned around and naughtily slipped her hands downward, before grabbing on his thing. “Baby, why didn’t you call room service and just came here to the living room to look at your phone naked? Are you doing any bad things?”
“I’ve asked somebody to collect some ship information and I’m comparing them right now.” Zhang Lisheng, who had a guilty conscience, felt his heart tighten as he quickly took the initiative to unlock his phone.
“Ship information? You really have plans to operate the sailing route from New York to the supernatural realm?” The girl misunderstood Zhang Lisheng’s intention and said without even looking at the phone’s screen. “This is indeed a promising business, but the investment capital is huge and its turnover rate is long… Ah, forget it! Let us talk about this later. Sheila and Trish are already on their way here to the Four Seasons Hotel. Go shower first and put on some clothes, we’ll head down to the hotel restaurant.”
“Oh, your two best friends really have plenty of idle time.” Zhang Lisheng nodded and commented before walking into the bathroom to take a shower. Then, he put on some clothes and walked out of the room with Tina.
In the spacious and elegant corridor of the Four Seasons Hotel, the two of them were walking under the soft light when the girl smiled and asked, “Lisheng, are you still going back home tonight?”
“That will have to depend on the time. I won’t go back if it’s too late. My mom still doesn’t know that… Oh sh*t! Now that something like that has happened on Shrimp B1 Island, my mom must be as worried as you were! I actually forgot to call her to tell her that I’m fine!” Without giving any concern to the strange looks he received from the surrounding guests and waiters, he cried out loudly and took out his phone, before hastily dialing his mother’s number.
The phone rang twice before being picked up. Immediately, Lili’s nervous voice resonated from the receiver. “Lisheng, is that you?”
“It’s me, mom,” Under Tina’s taunting’s eyes, Zhang Lisheng replied softly. “I’ve already returned to New York and now I’m handling some stuff in the factory. I’ll go back at night. Everything is fine, I’m fine so you don’t have to worry about anything.”
“Oh my Almighty Lord! Thank you for your blessing…” When she heard the news that her son was safe, Lili was so consumed with emotions that she lost her voice for a moment and began to praise God.
After quietly listening to the prayer for a moment, his mother still continued to pray continuously after he had walked into the hotel restaurant. In the end, Zhang Lisheng finally said helplessly, “Mom, I still have a few urgent things to deal with so let us talk later when we meet at night, okay?”
“Oh oh! Alright, baby! Alright! Remember, don’t be too hasty when you’re driving back to the city! I’ll wait for you to come back no matter how late you are.”
“Alright, see you later, mom!”
