Chapter 275: The Ideal Day
Gao Yang and his family left the airport. Their plan was to take a yacht to the F Island, which was the island with the best return for money spent. Paying 7000 yuan per person, and they got a packaged deal with a full week of accommodation; the meals were covered too since it was off season.
With a group of more than four people, free accommodation and meals were provided for a child at or under the age of 15. Gao Xinxin barely met the criteria at 15.
Gao Yang’s mother did her best to keep the cost low. As long as they didn’t spend money on souvenirs and avoided splurging, they could keep the cost of the whole trip at fifty thousand yuan, which was the most they could afford with their budget.
Wang Zikai, on the other hand, was the complete opposite. He picked a five-star island villa with a 360-degree view of the ocean, which cost forty thousand yuan per night. It was beyond regular people’s comprehension.
Moreover, he booked an eight-passenger seaplane for pick-up, and he insisted on everyone getting on with him.
Gao Yang and his family didn’t turn down the offer out of misplaced politeness. They got onto the seaplane Wang Zikai booked.
The plane took flight at the pier and quickly rose to a height of several hundred meters.
The blue ocean blended into the blue sky. The entire Naldives was within their view. Leaning against the portholes, they looked down at the coral archipelago underneath. The scattering of islands resembled a pearl necklace against the backdrop of the blue ocean.
It didn’t take long until the seaplane landed on the F Island.
Gao Yang and his family got onto a shuttle bus with Wang Zikai, heading to a narrow road between rows of waterfront villas, all with the consistent look of deep brown rooftops and white walls.
The tour bus made it to the end of the road, stopping before the villa with the best view of the ocean.
On the way, Gao Xinxin had been boasting nonstop that she had booked the villa sitting at the best location—out of the regular hotel villas, of course.
Getting off the bus, they happily rushed into their villa.
Gao Yang set up the foldable wheelchair and placed his disabled father in the seat, pushing the wheelchair inside.
The villa was renovated like a modern hotel with many windows and doors to let in sufficient light and create an open space. On one side of the villa was an outdoor swimming pool at sea level, and on another side was an open balcony with beach loungers and parasols.
His mother knelt in the living room, sorting through everyone’s suitcases.
His grandmother was picking between the rooms.
There were two bedrooms in the villa. His grandmother would share one with Gao Xinxin, while his parents shared the other. And Gao Yang would take the sofa.
Gao Xinxin plopped down on the long sofa. “Hm, it looks more or less like the pictures, but with more give. Can you fall asleep here, Brother?”
“Yeah, I can sleep anywhere.”
I’m only going to be asleep for four hours. I’m not picky.
His mother picked up a stack of clothes from the suitcase and walked over to the closet. Then she said, “Give me yours, Yang Yang. I’ll sort out your luggage too. We’re staying here for several days. Wouldn’t want things to go missing.”
The last thing Gao Yang wanted was to leave his suitcase to his mother, so he lifted it and ran out of the villa. “I’m gonna go take a look at what Wang Zikai is up to, Mom. Be right back.”
On the road outside the villa, Wang Zikai was talking to the driver of the shuttle bus in broken English.
“I no is here!” Wang Zikai gestured as he showed pictures of the villa he had booked to the driver, pointing at the ocean. “I is there! Gogogo!”
Gao Yang facepalmed, taking out his phone and quickly typing out, ‘How to go to the Fairytale Villa?’
Then he translated it into English and handed his phone to the driver.
The driver broke into a bright grin, the white of his teeth a stark contrast with his tanned skin. “Jet ski! Jet ski!”
Five minutes later, Wang Zikai and Gao Yang each rode a jet ski they rented to the five-star island villa.
It was considered part of the F Island too and was known as the Fairytale Villa. Built upon a small island, it was a two-story villa surrounded by water.
It looked like something straight out of a fairytale with all kinds of amusement facilities, such as water slides, making it effectively a small waterpark.
Gao Yang always knew that Wang Zikai was a chuni boy at heart, but he never knew that his friend also had a preschool girl side to him.
Gao Yang and Wang Zikai parked the jet skis by a small pier outside the front door of the villa and went in with their luggages. The interior was done in the style that emphasized comfort and childlike wonder.
Wang Zikai took off his sunglasses and dropped his suitcase on the wooden floor. Kicking off his shoes, he rushed up to the fridge and took out two bottles of iced cola, throwing Gao Yang a bottle. He looked right at home. The origin of this chapter's debut can be traced to N0/v3l--B1n.
Gao Yang accepted the cola and brought his suitcase upstairs.
“Hey, where are you going?” asked Wang Zikai.
“Lend me the room upstairs,” Gao Yang said without turning around.
“Haha, sure!” Wang Zikai beamed. “To be honest, bro, the place your family picked is way too small. You even have to sleep on the sofa! Why don’t you just spend the nights here?”
“That’s what I think.” Gao Yang was waiting for him to say that. “I’ll sleep here tonight. And I’m a man of privacy. Don’t come into my room without reasons!”
Wang Zikai snorted. “Fine, fine. I’m not interested in your privacy.”
As soon as Gao Yang went upstairs, Wang Zikai quickly opened his suitcase. Inside was a heavy gaming console and about a dozen of the latest AAA games.
At a comfortable villa surrounded by the sea, he would sit on the sofa with his BFF, wolfing down high-calorie junk food and playing games until morning came. They would watch the red sun rise from the horizon outside the window walls as soft, tangerine light shone on their faces, accompanied by the gentle caress of the pleasant breeze.
What a wonderful moment that would be.
Then they would wash their faces and go about their exciting day!
When the sun was up, they would go diving! Surfing! Spa!
Came evening, they would hit on two pretty blonde girls in bikinis on the beach and have a candlelight dinner together, enjoying the admiring looks from the girls as they boasted about their achievements!
Then they would take the girls to a bar and drink and dance, indulging in the nightlife!
Then once it was midnight, they would...hehehe...go back to the villa and play more games!
Shit, wouldn’t that be the grandest time?
Wang Zikai broke into a grin, already picturing the next few days of their vacation, not even considering the itinerary Gao Yang’s family had planned.
While Wang Zikai was daydreaming downstairs, Gao Yang had already entered the bedroom on the second floor and locked the door behind him, closing all curtains too. Then he opened the suitcase.
The white cat didn’t jump out to greet Gao Yang, but instead curled into herself, looking ill.
Her nose was a little red, while her emerald eyes were misty. Mouth slightly open, she breathed in quick, short bursts.
Gao Yang placed a hand on her. Her body was unusually hot.
Shit, it’s not a heatstroke, is it?
