"Wrong," Lily immediately answered. "You and me… we are not alike and never will be."
Continuing to watch, Yang Lina decided against saying anything to Lily.
"I guess the purpose of this conversation has been achieved," Lily added. "Is there anything else that you wanted to say?"
"Nothing. But you have to be very careful, Qin Jinghua. The only reason you are able to talk to me is because you haven't endangered my family yet. The moment you threaten my family further, I will not hesitate to fight you with everything I have got," Yang Lina uttered. In response, Lily scoffed before taking her phone and carefully putting it inside her bag.
"You are truly one of a kind," Lily answered before she rose from her seat. "You ended this conversation on a righteous note. What a hypocrite."
"Aren't you only using your family name to scare people off? If I target your family, you will be nothing. Just like how Xuan Hui will be nothing once you are dead." Lily looked down on the sitting Yang Lina. "Just what are you so proud of? Have you achieved anything without using your family name?" Lily let out a low chuckle when she saw Yang Lina's face turning red.
"This is why we are not the same," she said before walking towards the exit of the room. "Oh, one last thing…" Lily stopped in her tracks, her back still facing Yang Lina. "You better take care of your daughter-in-law. Who knows what storm she will bring to your son's marriage."
"What do you mean by that?" Yang Lina immediately got up. "What do you mean, Qin Jinghua?" Of course, Lily did not even turn around to answer Yang Lina. Lily just walked out of the door and gave Yang Lina a knowing smile before closing the door behind her.
Seeing Lily leave, Yang Lina immediately picked up her phone and dialed a number. "I want to know everything about Lily Qin. She is hiding something! There must be something that I don't know about her."
"Alright… I will wait. I have another question. Who is she meeting tonight? Do you have a name?"
"Noris? Do we have anything on that person? What do you mean, blank? That person should exist!"
"Why is Lily leaving? I thought she had a meeting tonight? Then follow her! Don't let her out of your sight!" She ended the call without waiting for the person to speak. Yang Lina sat back on her chair and massaged her temple. As expected, Lily Qin was giving her a headache.
Yang Lina let out a sigh before she bit her lips. Lily's words echoed inside her brain once again. Was she pampering her son too much? Since Xuan Hui took over Xuan Records, Yang Lina had been helping her son secretly. She helped him obtain those artists that made millions of profits for their company. She even stood behind him when the family business slowly changed to Xuan Films and Records. She was simply supervising to make sure nothing could hinder him.
Yang Lina was aware that she loved her son too much. However, she would never accept this as a fault. She was just a mother. And all mothers would want to make their children happy… always. Though Yang Lina knew that some of the decisions she made behind the scenes were somewhat questionable, she didn't care. This was, after all, for her son's future.
Of course, aside from supporting him behind his back, Yang Lina also ensured that Xuan Hui would have a perfect image on the outside. She made sure that her son would look good in front of outsiders because it would proportionally affect Xuan Zeng's reputation. She made sure that Xuan Hui would be viewed as the perfect son, perfect bachelor, perfect man, and now the perfect husband.
But this did not mean that her son fulfilled all her wants. For some reason, Xuan Hui never listened to her words when it comes to his marriage. At first, Yang Lina agreed with Xuan Hui's marriage with Qin Jinghua because she wanted her son to honor the promise. As a gentleman, this was what Xuan Hui should have done. Of course, Yang Lina also liked the fact that Qin Jinghua was the perfect daughter-in-law. She was quiet and timid. She smiled when she asked her to smile and would blush at the smallest compliment. Wasn't Qin Jinghua the perfect wife for her son?
Who would have known that she was just a schemer hiding behind her perfectly crafted mask? She wanted to climb into her son's bed while simultaneously sleeping with other men. How embarrassing was this behavior? Of course, Yang Lina immediately cancelled the engagement and looked for the best heiresses in Mainland China, someone who would become Xuan Hui's new betrothed. But then again, fate did not agree to her plans.
Xuan Hui fell in love with Qin Fei, the stubborn, spoiled, and petty young miss of the Qin Family. At first, both Xuan Zeng and Yang Lina declined the Qin Family's offer for an engagement. They were from the same blood, after all. What if Qin Fei was just as cunning as her sister? But Xuan Hui took it upon himself to make his parents agree to the marriage by threatening to abandon the family and run away with Qin Fei.
And this method worked like a charm. Yang Lina immediately agreed, in fear that her son would actually abandon the family. However, agreeing to the marriage did not mean that she liked Qin Fei as her daughter-in-law.
Yang Lina's thoughts were interrupted when her phone rang. Seeing the name of the caller, she immediately answered the call.
"What is it now?"
"You lost her? How is that possible? Hong Kong is small! Go find her, you idiot, and tell me more about the person she will meet!" Once again, she dropped the call and furrowed her brows.
Lily is a threat, and Yang Lina would do everything to eliminate something that would threaten her peaceful family.
