Without waiting for Lily to say anything, Yang Mi started explaining how the truck seemed to be waiting for them and how the truck driver made sure not to hit the car in a way that would turn it over. It was as if… the driver calculated the impact as well as the right place to hit the car, making sure that they would only get bruises and some small wounds. Even Daohu, who was driving, only received a few bruises.
The only reason why Secretary Go received such wounds is because he noticed the approaching truck and removed his seat belt so he could protect Yang Mi in his arms. Though a little heroic, Yang Mi also told Lily how she found this action a little stupid. Why take your seatbelt off to try and protect someone other than yourself?
Of course, Yang Mi had been around Lily for so long that she had developed some of Lily's selfish traits, but this didn't mean that Yang Mi did not appreciate the man's efforts.
Because of this, Lily asked her to stay in the hospital for now so she could take care of Go Jichen. The man also grew up in an orphanage and had no one to take care of him. Yang Mi reluctantly agreed to Lily's request, however, she also made sure that Lily would be taken care of and repeatedly asked Zhuo Jingren not to let Lily go anywhere by herself.
"You have been through a lot. You should rest. The room has two beds in it. Daohu will also be around to buy everything that is needed here," Lily said while staring at the bandages on Yang Mi's hands. Apparently, the latter was hit by some shattered glass during the accident. While this was a little wound compared to the shattered glass that went into Secretary Go's back, Lily still insisted on Yang Mi to getting some rest.
"President, please leave now. I can take care of myself. The launch will start in less than an hour," Yang Mi said. In response, Lily nodded and looked at Zhuo Jingren. The duo then walked out of the room to find Daohu waiting for them.
Just like Yang Mi, Daohu only had a bit of bruising and some bandages on his head. The doctor said that he could go home at any time.
"President, Madam." Daohu made a low bow before Zhuo Jingren instructed him to stay for a while and get everything that Secretary Go and Yang Mi needed. While this was happening, Lily also made some calls to George and told him about what happened.
"He said it will take him a day or two to find out about the driver," Lily said. They were already on their way to the hotel.
"I can do it in a day," Zhuo Jingren said, earning a nod from Lily. George just took over the Tang Family's business and it was expected that he would have to deal with some hostility within the organization. After all, he is from the west and because of this his network right now is not as strong as Zhuo Jingren's.
"Do you think that…"
"Yes, I do," Zhuo Jingren interrupted her question. "And I am going to find out who had the audacity to attempt to hurt you."
"Yang Lina," Lily uttered. Her voice was low, but it was enough for Zhuo Jingren to hear. "If I were Yang Lina, this would be my best course of action."
"I will investigate. If she really is the culprit then… I will deal with her," Zhuo Jingren said his face as cold as his tone. Although Lily wanted to voice her objections and tell him about her original plan, she ended up nodding at his words. She understood how angry Zhuo Jingren had become… and to be honest, she also wanted to see his capabilities.
"The Yang Family won't be an easy opponent," Lily said. "Yang Mi no longer cares about them so you can do whatever you want. However, those people have connections to the government. I'm afraid…"
"They can't do anything to me." His declaration earned a raised eyebrow from Lily. Seeing that he had no plans to elaborate, Lily chose not to ask either. Since Zhuo Jingren said this then he must be confident that he can do something about them.
"Check out the folder in the back of the car. I am planning to give that to Fernando," he said. Lily immediately took the document and an expression of utter shock registered on her face. She continued to read the document and looked at Zhuo Jingren.
"Why would you give this to Fernando?"
"So he would know the identity of his strongest competition," Zhuo Jingren answered nonchalantly, "Your friend is such a coward. He needs a challenge."
A flash of understanding could be seen in Lily's eyes. She then decided to changed the topic, "When will we arrive at the hotel?"
The convention hall of Hilltop Hotel and Resort can accommodate as many as a thousand people, and this is where Lily is holding the official launch of the new Head Office of the Facci Group as well as announcing the opening date of the revamped Harmony Isle.
"I'm going to go and talk to some people. You behave - and don't attract too much attention," Qin Mo whispered into Tang Lingyun's ears. She just had her press conference the other day and Qin Mo was sure that some paparazzi were still very interested in taking some candid photos of Tang Lingyun. It would be better if she just behaved herself and maintained the gentle smile on her face.
"Alright," Tang Lingyun nodded while eyeing the black carpet that was laid all over the venue. Seeing her nod, Qin Mo immediately led her and Qin Liwei to their assigned tables before leaving with Qin Liwei to talk to some of his friends.
Tang Lingyun's eyes roamed the whole venue as hate and anger started to sprout inside her. In front of Tang Lingyun was a venue that was only seen in Hollywood movies. From the black carpet to the crystals hanging from the ceiling, this place screamed nothing short of elegance and… money. She wondered how much Lily spent on all these decorations just to impress the guests.
Tang Lingyun gritted her teeth as she thought about Lily Qin being richer and more prominent than her, then a smug smile slowly appeared on her face. 'Let's see how long that despicable Qin Jinghua can maintain all this,' she mused as she metally finessed her evil schemes.
