Celeste didn’t hesitate, taking the opportunity to stretch one leg in, propping herself on the other person’s shoulder, and finally climbing
As soon as her feet touched the ground, her legs felt weak and she almost slid to the floor.
Luckily, Mason caught her in time..
She leaned against him a bit embarrassingly, and although she wanted to keep up her image, she suddenly felt there was no need, considering he had already seen her climbing through the men’s bathroom window.
Celeste decided to just go with the flow since her image was already ruined in front of him.
Another person entered the bathroom, saw the scene inside, said “Sorry for the interruption,” and left immediately.
Celeste was speechless.
This was quite an awkward misunderstanding.
The two of them left the bathroom, calling the police while looking for someone to unlock the door.
The hotel staff was efficient, and the girl was quickly rescued from the bathroom.
Probably because Celeste had opened the window for ventilation, the girl’s complexion had improved a lot, and she could already speak simple words.
Then the doctor arrived, gave her a quick check, and praised, “Luckily, she was rescued in time. Her condition isn’t too serious.”
Everyone present breathed a sigh of relief, especially the hotel manager, who was almost in tears.
The people attending the business dinner tonight were all wealthy and influential. If someone had died at the hotel, the manager wouldn’t be able to handle it.
The manager quickly arranged a room, and the group sent the girl in for the doctor to treat her.
He then thanked Celeste profusely. “Thanks to your help today Otherwise, the consequences would be unimaginable. May I ask for your full name, ma’am?”
Celeste waved her hand, just about to remain anonymous, when Mason replied for her, “This is Miss Selena Colton.”
It seemed the fake name was stuck with her.
“May I ask which room Ms. Colton is staying in? Don’t get me wrong, I just want to say that you are our honored guest, and we’d like to waive all your expenses at the hotel as a token of our gratitude.”
“That’s not necessary.” Celeste thought for a moment, “But I do have a small favor to ask. I wonder if you could help me.”
The manager quickly put on an attentive listening expression,
Celeste said, “Could you let me into the charity dinner venue?”
The manager hesitated, “Is Ms. Colton an invited guest tonight?”
Celeste pursed her lips, “No.”
Her husband was an invited guest tonight, but she didn’t want to call Liam right now. Firstly, her phone was broken, and secondly, even if she told Liam, he wouldn’t side with her because his sister was the one who caused the trouble.
The manager apologized, “I can help you with anything else, but I can’t make the decision on this matter. Tonight’s charity dinner requires an invitation for admission to prevent journalists from sneaking in and invading the guests’ privacy. Even I don’t have the privilege to bring someone in without an invitation. I’m really sorry.”
Celeste’s eyes were filled with a sense of disappointment, but the next second, an invitation suddenly appeared in front of her.
Celeste was stunned and looked up to see Mason already smiling, softly saying, “Maybe you could try persuading me a bit. I should be able to bring a date, right?”
The last sentence was for the manager.
The manager nodded and said, “Of course.”
