Chapter 1154 Name Your Price
“I…” Mia was at a loss for words. Although she wanted to continue arguing, she dared not because she could clearly sense Dahlia’s growing anger.
“You useless fool!” At this point, Florence couldn’t hold back and delivered a resounding slap to Mia’s face. She scolded, “You can’t even handle booking a room; what use are you? You’re an embarrassment to me!”
“Madam Florence, I’m sorry, I’m really sorry,” Mia covered her burning face, not only refraining from getting angry but also apologizing profusely. She nodded and bowed, appearing extremely submissive.
“Tell me sorry? What good is that? How do we resolve the room issue? Do you know we’re about to welcome an important guest!” Florence scolded loudly.
This waste not only failed to accomplish anything but also made her lose face in front of Dustin. It was truly an unpardonable sin.
“Madam Florence, how about we go to Room No. 1 in the Ground level? The environment there is quite nice too,” Mia tentatively suggested.
“Slap!” Florence slapped her again and scolded, “Is your brain damaged? With our status, we should sit in the Platinum Rooms. How can the Ground level rooms compare?”
“Exactly! One’s Heaven, the other’s Earth. Can they even be compared?” Julie crossed her arms, very dissatisfied. “Dustin can sit in a Platinum Room, but we can only sit in a Ground level room. Are you implying that our status is lower than his?”
“This… I…” Mia, holding her face, was at a loss for words. She hadn’t expected the situation to evolve like this.
Originally, the plan was to ingratiate themselves with Dahlia’s group, but now it had backfired. Instead of pleasing an important person, they had caused a lot of trouble. And all of this was thanks to Dustin, which filled her with resentment.
“Alright, let’s stick with the Ground level room. Arrange for us to change rooms,” Dahlia, although unhappy, couldn’t be bothered to argue further.
“Alright, alright, I’ll arrange it immediately!” Mia breathed a sigh of relief and instructed the waiter to prepare a new room.
“Wait!” Florence clearly disagreed. “Daughter, how can we let this go? What’s our status now? We’re among the top elites in Dragonmarsh! Wherever we go, we deserve the highest level of treatment. These Ground level rooms are too inferior for us!”
“That’s right! We must have the best rooms to reflect our status,” Julie chimed in.
“Madam Florence, the Ground level rooms actually have a very nice environment, and once you see it, you’ll know,” Mia tried to explain with a forced smile.
“Shut up! I said they’re inferior, so they’re inferior!” Florence stared daggers at her, making Mia shrink her neck and fall silent immediately.
Florence cared more about reputation, face, and status. Therefore, the rarer and more expensive something was, the more she liked it, and she was determined to obtain it.
“Mom, the Platinum Rooms are all occupied. Why don’t we just make do with the Ground level rooms?” Dahlia tried to persuade.
“No way! Let me handle this,” Florence said with determination.
“Dustin, we want this room, name your price!” Florence looking at Dustin.
“Price? Are you trying to buy me with money?” Dustin raised an eyebrow.
“That’s right!” Florence lifted her head proudly, saying, “I’m not short of money right now. As long as you all leave, I’ll pay whatever it takes.”
With that, she took out a gold card from her designer bag and waved it in front of Dustin, displaying a few hints of arrogance and ostentation.
