On the other side of the venue, Yang Lina arrived with her husband, Xuan Zeng. As a couple who were already known in business circles, Xuan Zeng and Yang Lina's arrival immediately attracted the attention of some people. This was also because the couple managed to bring Xuan Hui with them. Sadly, Qin Fei was not able to come because of her current state.
Just like Tang Lingyun and everyone else, the trio were also pleasantly surprised by the sophistication before them. Though these people were used to being invited to events like this, they could not deny the fact that this was the first time they'd witnessed an event as grand as this launch.
When the trio reached their assigned seats, surprise registered on their faces when they saw Tang Lingyun and the others had been seated at the same table as them.
"Where is Qin Fei?" Qin Mo instantly asked. After the host announced that they would be starting soon, he and his son immediately returned to their assigned table.
"She is not feeling well," Xuan Hui was quick to answer. Actually, Qin Fei caused a big ruckus when Yang Lina did not allow her to come. She was crying and throwing things the whole day. In the end, Yang Lina threatened to send her to the Xuan Family's ancestral house in Mainland China after she gives birth. Qin Fei's anger immediately subsided. She stopped crying and obediently stayed at home.
Xuan Hui tried to stay behind to attend to his wife, but his mother insisted that this event is very important and hence, he should come along and leave Qin Fei at home. Yang Lina also made sure to leave a caretaker at home to attend to Qin Fei's every need for the night.
Hearing Xuan Hui's words, Qin Mo and Tang Lingyun nodded. After all, Qin Fei is heavily pregnant and It's reasonable for her not to feel well at this point.
"This is actually over the top. Is this really necessary?" As a civil servant, Xuan Zeng had developed the trait of being 'just and humble'. For him, extravagant spending like this was actually unnecessary at these launch events. He felt, It would have been better to utilize this amount of money to help the underprivileged.
"She is trying to show everyone how big her company is. She is rich. Let her show off," Yang Lina answered with a smile on her face. Lily Qin was actually someone who sits above all of them when it comes to their bank accounts. This is something that she herself could not deny. She then turned towards her son, "This is a very good event for you. Everyone who has been invited is truly influential. Some people even came from abroad. If you want to broaden your network, you should take advantage of this opportunity to interact with them."
"Mother, the program will start soon."
"No, it won't." Yang Lina smiled at him, her gaze was full of meaning, "Lily is not yet here."
"But the host…"
"They won't start without Lily," Yang Lina interrupted her son. "I am sure of that." Before she could give her son a smile, however, the lights dimmed and the voice of the host echoed through the room, announcing the formal start of the program.
Yang Lina immediately furrowed her brows. Why would they start the event without Lily? She then checked her phone but discovered that there were no unread messages. This could only mean that her plan was a success. Lily should be in the hospital right now.
"Mother, is everything alright?" Xuan Hui asked, sensing Yang Lina's distress.
"Of course," she answered as she thought about her previous plans for Lily. First, Yang Lina only wanted to hurt Lily by embarrassing her and showing her that this was Hong Kong and not Europe. This was Yang Lina's turf. She was hoping that it would be enough to ruin Lily and that she would return to Europe after the accident. She had contacted the Yang Family's lackey, Li Tian Ya for this job. The man had assured her that everything would be taken care of, and Yang Lina trusted his words. That was the reason why she brought Xuan Hui here, to show him that Lily was not some invincible entity that he should be afraid of.
On the contrary, Tang Lingyun, who was sitting next to Yang Lina - was ecstatic! This is the moment that she had been waiting for! After Yang Lina told her that Lily might be planning to scheme against her and the whole Qin Family at this event, Tang Lingyun made her own plans against Lily for the night. She had already ruined Lily once, years ago. Did she really think she was invincible now?
A series of lights attracted everyone's attention to the stage as it lit up and showed the history of the Facci Group. Next, the host began introducing individuals who represented some of the Facci Group's subsidiaries to talk about how much their companies have grown since being acquired by the Facci Group. Their speeches were followed by those of the Company Directors and some of the Facci Groups' biggest shareholders.
"And finally, the most anticipated arrival of the evening: She is the only granddaughter of Madam Lilian Facci and the one who is responsible for tonight's incredible event, the current Owner and CEO of Facci Group, Miss Lily Facci- Zhuo!" The host's voice echoed, followed by a loud applause. Some of these people have not met Lily before while some of them had only watched her from afar. All of them were excited to see her up close.
While everyone was very excited, the Qin Family and Xuan Families wore entirely different expressions on their faces. Tang Lingyun was showing excitement; it was as if she was about to jump up and down while clapping her hands. Meanwhile, Qin Mo wore his poker face, and Qin Liwei was frowning. He had heard of Lily before but he'd never seen her in person. But… wasn't she a Qin? Why was she now being introduced as a Zhuo?
While the Qin's were lost in their own thoughts, Yang Lina and Xuan Hui were also having theirs. Zhuo? Lily Facci - Zhuo? When and how did Lily suddenly become a Zhuo?
Then the lights focused on the entrance of the venue where a woman wearing a sparkling jumpsuit stood. Next to her was a man wearing an all-black three piece suit… eh? Isn't that Zhuo Jingren of the Zhuo Capital?
