With this in mind, Xuan Hui dialed a number on his phone. "Feifei? Hey… I want you to call Father Mo. Tell him that I will buy all the stocks that Zhuo Capital sold. Yes, my lawyer will call him later." He immediately ended the call after achieving his goal,.then he looked in the direction that Lily's car had taken.
Does Lily really think that she is that formidable? Xuan Hui knew that what Zhuo Jingren did to the Qin Industries was because of Lily. The man must have been extremely smitten with his wife to let her convince him to sell his shares for such a low price. Xuan Hui immediately scoffed at his own thoughts. Zhuo Jingren was an idiot for losing profits over some petty revenge.
Originally, Xuan Hui did not plan on buying anything from the Qin Industries. After all, he knew that the current state of the Qin industries was extremely pitiful. However, after Lily mocked him earlier, he felt that he needed to prove himself to Lily. True, his mother helped him achieve everything, but this didn't mean he is incapable of managing a company!
When Lily arrived at Sky City, Zhuo Jingren was already there. The couple originally wanted to eat outside but Lily changed her mind and asked her husband if they could just stay at home. This was mainly because she wanted to rest and think about some things that had been bothering her lately.
"Hot Pot?" Lily smiled when she saw Zhuo Jingren arranging some of the ingredients on the table.
"Hmmm… I also made my own version of a dipping sauce," he answered. Zhuo Jingren was wearing a gray Henley shirt that showcased his biceps, paired with beige shorts. Lily continued to eye Zhuo Jingren before lifting an eyebrow.
"Are you going to make me another offer to be a stay-at-home husband?" Zhuo Jingren give a low laugh. He shifted his gaze towards Lily and gave her a wink before focusing his attention back on the perfectly arranged thinly sliced meat for the Hot Pot.
"Hmmm… My grandma said that having a handsome husband will give women headaches," she said as she took a seat across him.
"I thought I was the best husband out there. When did I ever give you a headache?"
"Fighting against scheming women who like you is such a headache," Lily said while eyeing the now simmering broth. She then smiled at the mushrooms near her and used a chopstick to pick one up.
"Go change your clothes first, then we can start eating," he said, making Lily pause. She slowly turned her head towards him and gave him a brilliant smile.
"How… strict," Lily smirked as she raised an eyebrow at him. "I am already hungry President Zhuo. Can't I eat without changing my clothes?"
In response, Zhuo Jingren stopped what he was doing and approached Lily. "Depends," he answered, his tall stature towering over her.
"On what?" Lily asked.
Zhuo Jingren quickly leaned down towards Lily's ear and whispered, "On what you want for dinner."
August 02, Tuesday
Lily woke up with a small smile on her face. The Hot Pot last night was just what she needed to end her day. Of course, sleeping with an extremely hot husband was another reason, but still, Lily would chose to credit the Hot Pot for her impeccable mood today.
"Xuan Hui bought all of the shares last night," Zhuo Jingren said as he placed a cup of coffee in front of Lily. He then helped Lily close the zipper of her knee length red dress.
"His ego was not able to take it. That's expected," Lily said. She then took the coffee and smiled at him. "Thank you."
"I also sent you a video of Li Tian Ya's confession."
"Of course," he replied. Lily just stared at Zhuo Jingren for a few seconds before she averted her gaze and took a sip of the coffee.
"He does not know why Yang Lina wanted to silence Yang Sen, but he remembered her mentioning something about what happened seven years ago."
"Seven years ago? Isn't that…"
"I already had my men investigate everything and so far… we've found nothing except for the hospital personnel that were fired," Zhuo Jingren answered. Seeing Lily stare at the cup of coffee without saying anything, he immediately added, "Don't worry too much about it. I will keep looking."
"Jingren… seven years ago, our child…" Lily did not continue her words, instead she lifted her head and looked at him. "Yang Lina is quite close to the Madam of the Mu Family who owns the city hospital that I was admitted to. She is also a doctor with lots of connections. I wouldn't be surprised to find that whatever this secret is, it has something to do with me."
"I agree," Zhuo Jingren said as he reached out to touch Lily's hand. "We are in this together, alright?"
After Lily finished her breakfast with Zhuo Jingren she first went to Harmony Isle to visit the newly constructed building before going to her office to continue working.
"President, a man named Yang Jing is insisting on seeing you," Cathy respectfully said. Her words immediately made Lily frown. According to her research, Yang Jing should be in the military, so why is he here now?
"Did he mention the purpose of his visit?" she asked after a few seconds of silence.
"No. But he said that it is very important."
"Tell him an important matter is not enough to see me. Ask him for his purpose again. If he still refuses to say it then tell him I don't have the time to see him," she remarked in an offhand manner before continuing to type on her laptop.
After a few minutes, Cathy came back.
"President, he said it has something to do with what happened seven years ago."
Lily instantly froze when she heard Cathy's words. She then massaged her temples as she reached out for the recorder in her drawer. "Bring him in and cancel my meetings for the next hour."
"Got it, President." Cathy made a low bow before she walked out of Lily's office, her normally stern face slowly turning into a scowl. For some reason, her gut was telling her that Yang Jing's purpose in coming here had something to do with the death of her best friend, Rebecca Facci, seven years ago.
