Chapter 1154: The Grand Pripyat Hotel

At the Grand Pripyat Hotel, the players had already arrived before the accident committee.

As usual, Besonova arranged a room with the front desk.

Master Kui and Besnova shared a room, mainly so the latter could be supervised. The doctor shared a room with Mouse, Zhang Heng shared a room with the maintenance man, and the last two were Coconut and the young man.

However, after the young man received the key, he pulled the repairman to a corner. After half a minute, the key in his hand had been changed to a room with Zhang Heng.

At the same time, Zhang Heng also received his own key. At the same time, the system notification rang in his ears.

[Ding! Successfully checked into the Pripyat Hotel. Game points: +3. Please check the relevant information on the character panel…]

Even though the atmosphere in the dungeon was tense, the game points were still hidden and distributed as usual.

Zhang Heng looked around. Other than the server and the server who were busy changing keys, the others’ expressions also changed. They had obviously received the system notification.

Furthermore, most of the players were already used to the method of obtaining points. Previously, they had witnessed the explosion of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant but hadn’t received any points. Now, they had just randomly checked into a room and received 3 points.

Zhang Heng’s gaze turned around and finally landed on the young man in the uniform. The latter strolled quickly towards him.

“Idol.” The young man waved the key in his hand and said excitedly, “We can live together now.”

“How did you convince the maintenance worker to exchange rooms with you?”

“I promised to pay him 1 point when I get out.”

“40,000 yuan just to share a room with me?” Zhang Heng raised his eyebrows.

“My family is doing well. I have two office buildings for rent, so this amount of money is nothing,” the young man said nonchalantly. “You haven’t seen those little girls who chase after celebrities outside. In supporting their favorite traffic celebrities, they even bought goods worth hundreds of thousands of yuan. If 40,000 yuan was enough for them to stay with their idol for a night, they would definitely fight over it.”

“Unfortunately, I’m not a celebrity,” Zhang Heng said.

“The name Simon is enough to overshadow all celebrities in the player world. And I’m not the only one paying attention to you, my idol.” The youth in uniform blinked and then looked around, lowering his voice, “Before this dungeon, I just received a piece of gossip. February Siege, leader of the Arc of Light guild, is also secretly investigating you. It’s said that he has also mobilized large funds within the guild. I wonder what he’s up to.”

“Hmm…” Zhang Heng frowned.

He did not expect February Siege to target him as well. Previously, he had some friction with one of the three big guilds, Arc of Light, because of Shen Xixi, but he did not reveal his identity. This time, February Siege paid attention to him, most likely because of this proxy war. Speaking of which, the person who suffered the most losses on the rankings was probably Arc of Light. Although initially, they had successfully dominated the rankings, who would have thought that in the end, it would be him and Beta that would’ve to ruin it.

However, if February Siege wanted to kill him because of such a thing, it would seem like they were making too much of a fuss. Therefore, Zhang Heng could not guess what Arc of Light was thinking. However, he still nodded as a gesture of thanks to the youth who provided him with the information.

The latter patted his chest. “It’s no big deal. I have long disliked those guys from the three major guilds on the forums. If I find out that their people are up to something, I will definitely inform you immediately. So, you see… my idol, should we add each other on WeChat or QQ so we can contact each other more easily?” The youth rubbed his hands in glee.

“I’m sorry, I don’t like to be disturbed,” Zhang Heng bluntly rejected. “If you want to find me, you can send me a private message on the forum. My ID is Saturn V.”

“Roger that. All experts have their own personalities.” The young man gave him a thumbs-up as if he knew what he was talking about. Initially, he did not have much hope of getting Zhang Heng’s phone number or QQ. The only reason he asked was so that he could play a few games first. He was already very satisfied with Zhang Heng’s Forum ID. This meant that he could look at Simon’s posts and replies in silence.

“I often hang out on the forum, so I’m very well-informed,” the youth added. “I can see many posts that were deleted not long after they were posted. If you want to know anything, you can come to me.”

“Okay, okay.”

…..

After the players received the keys to their room, they did not rush upstairs but first assigned the order of duty.

Of course, they would not forget the purpose of staying here. They needed to know when the experts from the committee would come to the hotel. However, this job did not require too many people. They only needed to leave one person in the lobby to watch the door while the rest could go back to their rooms and wait.

Thus, everyone arranged a shift. Everyone stayed downstairs for two hours, and after that, the next person was replaced. Taking into account Coconut’s current condition, the players removed her from the duty roster.

The first person to stay on duty was the maintenance worker. After that, the rest of the group took the elevator to the sixth floor, where the guest rooms were, and returned to their respective rooms.

The players had been in a hurry since the moment they entered the dungeon. Previously, they wanted to escape the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant that had an accident as quickly as they could. Then, in an attempt to quickly complete the main mission and investigate the cause of the accident, they had been running around for more than ten hours. Only now did they have some time to rest.

At least, before Kovitz arrived at the hotel, they had nothing else to do but wait.

Before leaving the elevator, the doctor reminded the players to stay alert and open the windows. They had to be careful of the radiation outside. Then, the players separated in the corridor. The young man found the room where Zhang Heng and Kovitz stayed and inserted the key into the keyhole.

When he opened the door, he saw a spacious guest room.

Although the furniture was old and looked like it was from the 1980s or 1990s, everything looked fresh and new. Just like Pripyat, the hotel hadn’t been built for long and had only just opened for business; however, the facilities were perfect, and the environment was beautiful. This also reflected the ambitions of Pripyat’s builders and managers.

Not only did they aspire for Pripyat to become an atomic city, but they also wanted it to become a famous tourist attraction. The large amusement park had been built early on, and the second hotel had been approved and was about to start construction. If not for the sudden nuclear accident, this beautiful town might be just crowded with tourists in many years.
