The floor manager looked at Sean Lennon and said softly. “Say, Mr. Lennon, why don‘t you just lead back? This is an unnecessary debate.”
There were tinges of resentment in his voice.
“Why is it unnecessary?” Sean turned his head slightly and looked at the floor manager.
“Hah! The results are already set in stone for this matter! You have no idea how terrifying the identity of the other person is. You wanna snatch something from their hands? I advise you, you‘d better not order a death sentence for yourself.” The more the floor manager spoke, the more incompetent he felt Sean was.
Yesterday, Gordon Zigger had liaised with the hotel‘s deputy general manager directly, that was why the floor manager had no idea of the relation between Sean and Gordon. However, so what if he knew?
Even if Gordon and Sean knew each other, it would have been not much of use. Even the Zimmers, which were the rising star amongst the River City aristocrats were nothing when compared to this VIP.
This Sean Lennon merely knew Gordon Zigger, what good does it do?
Gordon Zigger is a man with many friends, and he knew people from all over the place. That is actually nothing to be proud of.
“What I, Sean Lennon wants, no one has ever snatched it away from me before.” Sean did not get angry but remained calm as he explained.
“Hehe, you‘re a confident one alright. But, your confidence would be destroyed later I reckon. Even Young Master Zimmer could not win with this VIP. What makes you think that you can do it?” The floor manager looked at Sean and disdain begin to color his tone.
He heard that Sean was generous and is not worth was sky-high.
As a floor manager at the Riverleaf Lakeside Hotel, he had seen his fair share of wealthy people. That was what made him understand that before VIP‘s like Zander, money was nothing. One word from Zander could determine is the hotel could or could not remain alive.
What was money before him?
This was why the floor manager thought that Sean was playing a game that was out of his capabilities.
For Sean to want to go up against this VIP, the floor manager thought that if he could make Sean give up before anything happened, he would be considered as doing this VIP a favor!
What if it could garner recognition from the VIP?
“You can just watch, then.” Sean glanced at the floor manager and said quietly.
“Sure, I‘ll be sure to watch!” The floor manager huffed and retorted immediately.
At the same time. In the corridors.
Zander and Harry were approaching the premium lounge as they followed the general manager.
Throughout the entire journey of walking in, Zander was contemplating if he should turn back. However, his feet had denied the instructions of his brain and had brought him here.
This time, no matter what, they would have to meet now. Even if it was just to see Sean once, Zander would leave contented and happy.
Through the glass window, Zander turned his head slowly and looked at the lounge. With just one glance, Zander stopped in his tracks and his gaze slowly stiffened.
At that time, Sean that was in the lounge was in a wheelchair with his back facing the door and the windows. However, Zander recognized him right away.
His eyes widened slowly as he opened his mouth to try to speak, his Adam‘s apple bobbed up and down. Immediately, his body began to tremble uncontrollably.
Whoever was looking at Zander could tell that something was not right. Other than Harry, no one knew why Zander had become like this.
As Zander locked his gaze tightly on Sean with his wide, rounded eyes, he saw how lonely Sean looked in his wheelchair, and could not feel but feel a tingling sensation in Zander‘s throat as he tried not to be emotional.
In the past, when Scan was a nine-star commander, he led millions of soldiers to the battlefield in the north and the south, with victories galore as he slew his enemies. He was the extraordinary battle god with a rate of zero failure, he was one of a kind!
However, he was now a disabled person, living precariously in a small city. All the brothers that he had on the battlefield were no longer by his side. The only thing that could keep Sean company, was his little measly wheelchair.
How would anyone not sigh in sorrow when they see such a stark difference?
Zander was there to witness Sean in his peak and glory days, so when he saw how sad Sean looked right now, he felt worse than anyone else could ever feel.
Zander tried to psyche himself up by holding onto the wall. He was panting, taking in big gulps of air with every pant.
Initially, he only wanted to see Sean from afar and leave the hotel immediately. However, when he saw how Sean was like now, he really could not bear to just leave like that.
He wanted to let Sean know that at least… One brother from his past was still there for him!
This same brother was also still hoping and waiting for his return!
“All of you don‘t have to go in with me, I‘ll talk to him alone.” Zander took a deep breath and pulled the door to the lounge open, then he entered into the premium lounge.
Harry was standing guard at the door, and no one else was allowed to go near it.
Zander‘s bulging eyes were locked on Sean‘s back as his softened his footsteps.
“Say, Mr. Lennon, just think about my advice, okay? You may be a cripple, but you shouldn‘t give up on life and actively seek to die. If you were to anger such a VIP, you wouldn‘t need the wheelchair anymore… Because you would be dead!” The floor manager shook his head slightly at Sean.
From the looks of it, he was like Sean‘s superior, giving Sean advice that he expects Sean to heed. His eyes were filled with exasperation and frustration.
