ANDRIUS turned on the stereo as the car he was driving was traveling along the San Bernardino Freeway. As Chuck stay up late last night, he fell asleep immediately. And Andrius had no one to talk to, he had to entertain himself by listening to music.
From LA to Las Vegas, it will take their trip five hours, but if he will speed the car up, they can get there in less than five hours. By plane, the travel will only be thirty to forty-five minutes. But Andrius wanted to bring his car, so, he had to endure the long drive.
The sun was about to hide over the horizon and the skies turned orange. The weather is cold—that’s why it’s great to travel. He doesn’t get bored even if Chuck ignored him and took into a deep sleep. He was mesmerized by the beautiful scenery of the surrounding. A glowing smile forms on his face as he looks around.
After an hour, Chuck woke up and frantically looked out of the car.
“Where are we?” asked, Chuck.
But Andrius just laughed instead of answering his friend’s question. He turned down the volume of the stereo. And looked at the mountains covered by snow. Although he often has such scenery, he could not help but admire its beauty. Suddenly, he thought of spending the money that he will earn on a vacation with Beatrice. The snow reminds him about the skates—he loves to ice skate.
Chuck pointed to a woman in the distance. It is a Black American. Her short hair was swallowed up by her hat. If it weren’t for her curvy body and sexy clothes, you would think that she was a man in the distance. She carries a knapsack and was standing on the side of the road. Her right arm is in the sideward direction, with her thumb pointing up.
He deliberately passed the woman.
“Stop the car, dude!” Chuck shouted, and looked at the woman.
Andrius sighed and pulled over. Chuck went out of the car. He opened the backdoor and the woman quickly went inside his car. Chuck did not return to his side and sat beside the woman. And Andrius could clearly see how Chuck put his arm around the woman in the rearview mirror, and the woman seems to like it. Well, a handsome and charming guy like Chuck is hard to resist.
“I’m Chuck,” his friend introduces himself.
“Dolly,” the woman replied, sparingly, and took a glimpse at Andrius.
“He’s Andrius, my driver.” Instead of being annoyed with Chuck, he just chuckled.
“Nice to meet you, Andrius.”
Andrius just raised his right hand.
“Are you going to gamble, too?” Chuck asked Dolly.
“Nope,” said the girl.
“Then, what’s your business in Las Vegas?”
“I dance,” she proudly said.
“You do?” Chuck’s eyes widened. And Andrius was sure that Chuck thinks in a greenway. “Where?” Chuck asked with interest.
“At Peregrine Club.”
“Peregrine?” Chuck repeated.
“Yeah. The women in our club came from far and wide.”
“You mean ladies of different races?” Chuck’s eyes widened more. His greed for women is pretty obvious.
“Aha. Why not visit our club once?”
“We will,” Chuck replied.
“Really?” Dolly asked, cheerfully.
“Be sure to be there when we come to watch the show,” said Chuck.
Andrius glanced at his friend. When their eyes met, he shook his head. Chuck just shrugged his shoulder. And that action is equivalent to: ‘I’m just a man, dude.’
Las Vegas is located in the Southeast part of Nevada. It is the biggest city in the state. It is an internationally renowned major resort city, known primarily for its gambling, shopping, fine dining, entertainment, and nightlife. The Las Vegas Valley as a whole serves as the leading financial, commercial, and cultural center for Nevada.
Today, it annually ranks as one of the world's most visited tourist destinations. The city's tolerance for numerous forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of "Sin City" and has made Las Vegas a popular setting for literature, films, television programs, and music videos.
Dolly went down in front of the Golden Nuggets Casino. According to her, the club where she works is just a few steps away.
Andrius found the Silver Dust Hotel more easily with the help of Dolly. It is one of the largest hotels in the city. In there, Marcy, the secretary of Mr. Johansson, waiting.
Mr. Johansson provided them with a presidential suite at the hotel. It has a television set, a telephone, and a jacuzzi whirlpool bath. It has also a minibar and two beds. Andrius was happy with the accommodation. It only means that Mr. Johansson treats him like a VIP.
Mr. Johansson is not in the hotel. He was at the Silver Dust Studio for a meeting.
After checking in, Chuck went out to gamble. The man invited him but he refused. He was tired from the long trip and decided to rest in the room. Though he wanted to go—he loves gambling too, but he would prefer a nice rest. He wants to enjoy a beautiful rest in the soft and puffy bed of the suite.
When he woke up, he immediately took a bath and when he got dressed, he felt the vitality of his body because of having proper rest. Excitement welled up in his chest when he realized that his passion for taking pictures had paid off.
He went down to the hotel and took a snack. Afterward, he took a short walk around the lobby while waiting for Mr. Johansson. He was impressed with the beauty of the hotel—it can be ranked as the large and most beautiful hotel in the whole United States.
He has also visited many hotels in various places in America but he can say that the Silver Dust Hotel stands out among them.
