At this moment, Chu Zhou’s phone suddenly rang. After reading the message, his eyes lit up and he revealed a happy expression. However, after glancing at Liang Yan, he quickly covered it up. He coughed twice and said, “Take a walk first. I’ll come over after chatting with the host of the banquet.”
“Alright.” Liang Yan nodded.
Chu Zhou summoned a waiter and whispered a few words to him. The waiter immediately led him away respectfully.
Liang Yan looked at Chu Zhou’s departing figure and finally heaved a sigh of relief.
If Chu Zhou stayed by her side, she wouldn’t be able to find someone else to observe the situation at the banquet.
At this moment, a lady who was also alone passed by. Liang Yan hurriedly stopped her and asked politely, “Hello, beautiful lady. May I know what banquet is this today?”
“Banquet?” Seeing Liang Yan’s confused expression, the lady raised her eyebrows. “Don’t you know?”
Liang Yan shook her head honestly.
“Didn’t your seller tell you?” The lady’s red lips curled up. “Then forgive me for not being able to comment. You can observe this cruise ship yourself.”
With that, without waiting for Liang Yan’s reaction, the person left gracefully with a glass of red wine.
When Liang Yan heard the word “seller”, her face instantly turned pale. There was a bang in her head, and she felt the world spin. She was so frightened that she almost fainted.
She finally understood Chu Zhou’s meaningful words.
This was not a banquet at all, but a large-scale transaction venue!
And she was the goods Chu Zhou had brought!
No wonder the banquet hall was surrounded by surveillance cameras without any blind spots. It was to observe the “goods” present, right?
It was no wonder that those men were all wearing masks. That was true. Those who could attend such a transaction were basically either rich or noble. Naturally, they had to protect their privacy.
She really did not expect that Chu Zhou, that bastard, would actually bring her to participate in such a transaction!
Liang Yan gritted her teeth in hatred. She regretted not finding an opportunity to stab this beast to death back then!
Liang Yan’s face was pale as she walked around the banquet hall anxiously. She wanted to observe if there was any escape route, but she realized in despair that there were only two paths in the banquet hall. One was the entrance to the main entrance, and the other was waiter’s entrance.
Moreover, this place was surrounded by the sea. There was no way to escape.
What should she do?
Just as Liang Yan was at a loss, someone suddenly stood in front of her.
Liang Yan looked up and realized that this person was wearing an expensive suit. His figure was tall and straight. Even though he was wearing a full-face mask, only his eyes could be seen, making him look noble and outstanding.
Especially those deep and dark eyes, which made her heart tremble.
“Beautiful lady, why are you here alone? Where’s yourdate?” The man asked gently in a hoarse voice.
Liang Yan was afraid that the man would treat her as a transactional good, so she took a few steps back in panic and explained, “I’m not here to sell.”
“Then what are you here for?” The man’s tone was gentle, as if he treated Liang Yan as a lost little girl. He was very patient. “Maybe I can help you.”
Liang Yan looked at the man suspiciously and did not believe him. All the men present were here to make a deal. It was already good enough that they did not eat her. How could anyone save her?
As if he saw through her defense, the man smiled lightly. “I’m a staff member behind the scenes. Didn’t you notice that those customers are all wearing half masks, but I’m the only one wearing a full mask? Moreover, we don’t accept forced buying and selling here. If you were tricked into coming here, I can help you.”
Liang Yan’s eyes lit up when she heard that. Hope rose in her heart. “Can you really help me?”
The man nodded.
She could not escape alone. No matter how suspicious Liang Yan was, she could only take what she had. She explained to the man in a low voice, “I was tricked into coming here. At first, I didn’t know what this place was at all. I thought it was just an ordinary cruise banquet.”
“So, who tricked you into coming here? Your boyfriend?” The man continued to ask.
Thinking of Chu Zhou, Liang Yan’s eyes flashed with hatred, “He’s not my boyfriend, he’s a beast! He tried to rape me before, and although I was lucky enough to escape, I didn’t expect him to not give up. He even used my friend to threaten me to work for him. This time, he was the one who threatened me.”
When the man heard the answer “not my boyfriend”, a joyful smile flashed across his eyes. When he heard the word “rape”, his eyes instantly turned cold. If one looked carefully, they could see the monstrous killing intent brewing in them.
Seeing that the man did not answer, Liang Yan tugged at the corner of his shirt anxiously. “You’ll help me, right?”
