Lily give Zhuo Jingren a smile before she leaned in to kiss him. "I won't," she said.
"So what are you planning to do now?" Zhuo Jingren asked.
"I am planning to talk to Yang Jing again. I'm sure by now Old Man Yang already knows what Yang Lina did to Yang Sen," she answered. Although she wanted justice, Lily was also aware that taking another life would not give her satisfaction. It would only intensify the hate that would also create a never ending cycle of bloody revenge.
What Lily needed right now was justice. Yesterday, Lily had been doing all this for her own benefit. She wanted to remove Xuan Hui's backing to obtain his business. Now, however...she was fighting for something much more important to her: Justice for her mother.
Lily thought that whatever she showed Yang Jing was enough for the Yang Family to kick Yang Lina out. And she was right. Yang Jing reported the matter to Old Man Yang with the video that Lily showed him.
Yang Jing was able to obtain the video because Zhuo Jingren sent it to him. He also told Yang Jing to have an expert analyze the footage to prove that it was not fake, so Yang Jing immediately asked his contacts to analyze the video, and just today, he received the results.
Everything that Lily posted online, including Li Tian Ya's confession, was not fake. Everything was true!
Yang Jing immediately sent the information to Old Man Yang, and the latter directly transferred Yang Sen to a military hospital and tightened his security.
"You still dare lie to me?" Old Man Yang bellowed at the crying Yang Lina in front of him. "You attacked and then sedated your own brother in an attempt to silence him. If my guess is right, you also planned to kill him! How did I raise a daughter like you?"
"Father! How could you say that? I just did it to…"
"If you are going to say that you did it to protect the family, then you better stop right now!" It was Yang Tao. His face was extremely red with anger. He almost called his contacts this morning so he could help his sister! Good thing Yang Jing called him and informed him about what Yang Lina did to Yang Sen before he made any moves. "Lina! How could you do that to Elder brother?! Are you even human?!"
"Brother… Brother, please listen to me. Don't... Don't believe Lily. I am sure this is what she wanted. She wanted you to abandon me. She said it… she told me, she wanted me to experience being abandoned. Are you really going to give her the satisfaction by doing what she wanted?" Now that everyone in the family knew about what she did, Yang Lina decided to use this reasoning to try and gain the pity of her family. Yang Lina thought she could paint Lily as an evil enemy who wanted to ruin their family before asking her father to do something against Lily.
"Our family has been supporting the smaller branches of the Yang Family, and Lily knows this, yet she still chose to attack us. She wanted to take us down. She did not care that she would ruin the lives of our less privileged family members, all she cares about is revenge." Seeing Old Man Yang turned silent at her words, she continued, "Are you going to abandon me over this type of woman, Father?"
In response, Old Man Yang let out a loud sigh before he shook his head. "You are hopeless. Please leave the family. I don't want to see you again."
"Father! How can you do this?"
"Lina, that woman did not target the family for revenge," Yang Tao said after realizing that his father did not want to elaborate any further.
"What do you mean?" Yang Lina's eyes were full of confusion. Lily wasn't doing this because of what happened seven years ago? Then what was her purpose?
"She wanted to weaken your son's backing," Yang Tao continued. "She didn't y even know about what happened seven years ago. Yang Jing accidentally revealed it to her yesterday and…"
"WHAT?!" she immediately rose from her seat and looked at Old Man Yang. They were currently in the Old Man's study where he'd told the household to gather for a meeting. "HE TOLD HER?!"
Old Man Yang slowly nodded. Because of Yang Lina's story, everyone assumed that Lily was out to get the people who killed her mother. No one expected that her real purpose was only to get back at Xuan Hui. Their mistake was in making the wrong assumption because they'd swallowed Yang Lina's lies.
"We also know that you tried to kill her, but her secretary Yang Mi was the one who got into an accident instead," Old Man Yang answered. "You have been lying all this time. You hurt your brother and lied to your second brother. You wanted to manipulate us into taking action against your enemy. All you wanted was to use us against Lily Zhuo."
"Father… that is… that is not true," Yang Lina said as she slowly took a seat. Did Lily do all those things to target Xuan Hui? Yang Lina's eyes grew wide as the realization hit her. Lily wanted Yang Lina and Xuan Zengmo's attention focused on other pressing issues so they would not notice her actions against Xuan Hui.
All along, Lily was luring her away from the Xuan family. She separated Yang Lina and Xuan Zengmo and released the video to give them a headache. She divided their attention, weakening their protective stance around Xuan Hui.
The world seemed to stop revolving as Yang Lina realized Lily's real plan. First, she provoked them at the party. Lily was letting them know that she knew something about them. They quickly assumed that she knew about the accident seven years ago and become cautious about her next scheme. Then Lily wanted her to leave Hong Kong, so she sent the video to Yang Sen to anger him. Lily knew of Yang Sen's righteous nature, and she used this against Yang Lina. She successfully made Yang Sen mad because of Yang Mi's accident.
When Yang Lina arrived in Mainland China, Lily immediately released the video to occupy Xuan Zengmo's attention. Everyone was so busy rushing about chaotically, trying to solve the issues as quickly as possible that they all failed to see Lily's simple scheme.
Divide and Conquer.
