The moment they arrived outside the hotel entrance, Lu Yang and company froze immediately. The hotel lobby was brightly lit, and an altar had even been set up inside. A middle-aged person wearing Taoist robes was in the middle of a ritual with a luopan, a Feng Shui compass, in his hand. Beside him, there was also a disciple of middle-school age or so who was responsible for fetching tools.
Two rows of people, all wearing suits, stood behind them. These people were clearly the hotel’s staff.
Someone among the staff had also noticed the three of them. A female staff member immediately rushed out and explained, “My apologies, esteemed guests, we are carrying out a great worship service today at the hotel. We aren’t open for business.”
Who conducts worship services at night?! Jiang Ziya felt this excuse was poor, but it was clear the other person was just using a random excuse to make them go away.
