At noon the following day, Ye Chen and Xiao Churan flew to New York on an Air China transatlantic flight.
The entire flight took 16 hours, and by the time they arrived in New York, it was already 2pm local time.
Ye Chen was used to the Concorde, which was three times faster than a civilian airliner, so when he first flew on this ordinary plane, it felt like he had descended from a high-speed train to a green train.
It was a good thing that he had bought a first cla*s cabin with luxurious surroundings and the ability to sleep flat on his back, otherwise the journey would have been extraordinarily torturous.
Xiao Churan was also in very good shape after the sixteen-hour flight, not looking tired and with a bit of anticipation and excitement.
When they got off the plane, it took the couple another hour or so to complete the process of customs entry and picking up their luggage.
Ye Chen picked up the car he had set up in advance and after putting all the luggage into the trunk, he drove Xiao Churan to their final destination, Providence.
This was Xiao Churan’s first time in the United States and her curiosity about a foreign country made her excited and she kept looking left and right on the way.
After driving north through the bustling city of New York, Ye Chen followed the navigation cues and drove in a northeasterly direction.
It was four hours before the two of them finally arrived at the Hilton Hotel in Providence.
Kerry West, who was in charge of hosting the mastercla*s, was already waiting at the hotel.
As soon as they walked into the hotel lobby, a white woman in the lobby lounge area ran over happily and said to Xiao Churan, “Churan, you’ve finally arrived!”
The one who spoke was Kylie West.
As she was the person in charge of this master cla*s, she had returned to the United States two days before the start of the auction to start preparing for the start of the master cla*s.
She heard Xiao Churan say that she would be at the Hilton Hotel in the afternoon, so she came over early to wait to greet her.
Xiao Churan was also very surprised to see her and said offhandedly, “Kelly, what brings you to the hotel?”
“Came to give you a welcome!” Kelly West said with a smile, “It’s after six o’clock, just in time for dinner. I’ve made a reservation at the Sky Restaurant in the Hilton, so after you’ve put your bags away and taken a short rest, we can go to dinner.”
Xiao Churan was busy saying, “I’m so sorry to have to break your bank.”
Kairi West said with a straight face, “You’re still so polite with me?”
Saying that, she looked at Ye Chen and asked with a smile, “This is your husband, right?”
Xiao Churan hurriedly nodded and said with a smile, “Kairi, let me introduce to you, this is my husband, Ye Chen.”
After saying that, she was busy saying to Ye Chen, “Ye Chen, this is what I’ve been telling you about, my idol, Kerri West.”
Ye Chen looked at Kairi Vester and said politely, “Hello Ms. Vester, I’ve heard a lot about you.”
Kylie Vest hurriedly extended her hand and said, “You are too kind, Mr Ye, I have admired your name for a long time even when I was in Jinling.”
Although Kylie West did not know what exactly Ye Chen’s origins and background were, she knew that this was a man that even Fei Ke Xin had to go out of her way to curry favour with, and this alone was proof that this man was anything but ordinary.
After the two shook hands and exchanged a few more polite words, Ye Chen politely said to the two of them, “You guys chat first, I’ll go and do the check-in procedures.”
The two nodded slightly, and Kelly West then asked Xiao Churan in a low voice, “Churan, why can’t you contact Fei’er in the past two days?”
Xiao Churan still did not know Fei Kexin’s true identity and thought that her good friend was the French Chinese Zhan Feier.
In fact, Xiao Churan had been trying to contact Fei Ke Xin in the past two days, but like Kelly West, Fei Ke Xin’s contact number had been switched off, and the whole person seemed to have evaporated without a trace.
So she said to Kelly West, “I’m not going to lie, I haven’t been able to contact her in the past two days either, could she have left China for something urgent?”
Kerri West hesitated for a moment, nodded gently and said, “That’s probably possible.”
Kerri West was not aware of what had happened to the Fei family, so she did not know that Fei Kexin had, at this time, already started her escape journey with her grandfather.
Moreover, Fekosin didn’t even dare to contact the two when she left in order not to leave a trail for her eldest uncle.
However, Kerri West didn’t think much of it.
