Before going out, Charlie was still a little hesitant and reluctant.
He didn’t know how to deal with a passionate and bold girl like Loreen. He didn’t want to hurt her feelings and more importantly, he didn’t want to betray Claire.
He was in a complete dilemma right now.
He was worried that Loreen would confess to him again during the hot springs getaway and she might make an even bolder move too.
On the other hand, since he had promised his wife, it was impossible to retract his promise, so he could only go ahead with the plan.
As they went downstairs, they saw Loreen poking her head out of a Mercedes-Benz and saying, “Charlie, put the luggage in the trunk and sit in the back. Let Claire sit in the front and chat with me on the way!”
“Okay!” Charlie nodded, put the luggage in the trunk, and squeezed into the back seat.
When he sat down, Loreen turned and winked at him shyly.
Pretending not to see it, Charlie stretched himself and said, “Oh, I’m so tired. I didn’t sleep well last night, so I’ll catch a nap now.”
Then, he closed his eyes and pretended to fall asleep.
Loreen was a little disappointed with his reaction and understood why he did so, but she couldn’t say anything since Claire was there.
Moreover, she had expected the cold and indifferent treatment from Charlie, but it didn’t matter, since she had already liked him, she buckled herself up and was ready to fight this protracted battle with him. She didn’t feel guilty as well because she knew that Claire and Charlie did not consummate their marriage.
Loreen started her car and drove to the outskirts. After an hour or so, they arrived at the foot of a majestic mountain, and not long after, they reached the entrance of Champs Elys Resort.
Champs Elys Hot Springs was the only natural hot springs resort in Aurous Hill and was located at the foot of Mount Lanris. There were several natural geothermal hot springs in here, and the Shangri-La Group had bought the hot springs and the entire mountain and developed Champs Elys Resort.
Champs Elys Resort was very expensive with its wonderful and all-rounded services and facilities, so only the rich could afford to stay here.
Even so, the rooms were very hot-selling. It wasn’t only the wealthy people in Aurous Hill but the people in surrounding cities as well who would flock to this place for its amazing hot springs.
It was the weekend today and the business here was booming. They could hardly find an available parking spot in the parking lot.
Behind the wheel, Loreen circled the car park several times until she finally found an empty parking space. Thrilled, she looked around to make sure no one was waiting for the spot and quickly drove towards the empty space.
She adjusted the car and was ready to reverse and park. Just when her car was almost entering the space, a Maserati suddenly drove towards them at a high speed!
The Maserati was so fast, it drifted swiftly at the corner and rushed towards the empty space where Loreen was about to park. Loreen freaked out by the scene and she couldn’t step on the brake in time, so her car continued to reverse.
With a loud and shrill squeak, the rear of Loreen’s car scratched the Maserati’s side.
Loreen regained her composure and quickly stopped her car. She couldn’t help but frown and complained, “What the hell? Did they literally try to steal my spot? That’s so rude! Don’t they know what first-come-first-served is?”
At this moment, a young man wearing a flashy leather jacket and a greasy hairstyle came out of the Maserati.
His face darkened horrifically when he glanced at the scratch on the side of his car!
He gritted his teeth in dismay before he walked up to Loreen’s car and banged the window hard as he yelled, “F*ck you! Are you f*cking blind? Can’t you see that I was going to park at this spot? Damn it, you scratched my brand new car! Come down right now, motherf*cker!”
