After Bei Tian learnt that Lily Zhuo was Qin Jinghua, he was so shocked that he felt his brains flew out of his mind. He rushed to see Zhuo Jingren and demanded for an explanation.
"This is… This is impossible!" Bei Tian exclaimed after he heard Zhuo Jingren's story. "This… This is like a fairytale story!" he started pacing in front of Zhuo Jingren. "Did you know about her story though? She is a little dark. I mean… she is a very scheming businesswoman. Have you done your research? She had acquired businesses in both Europe and South America by force. I heard the Arison malls that she acquired were also through force. She is the epitome of a greedy and shady personality in the business world."
"No need to fret over this matter. I am a busy man. Stop disturbing me." Zhuo Jingren said, his eyes focused on his laptop.
" So you knew? And you are okay with it? My friend in Europe said something about her being such a cold person. She is notorious for manipulating people to do her bidding. Do you think they are telling the truth about her?" When Zhuo Jingren did not answer him, Bei Tian continued, "You married such a scary woman, Jingren ah, you have to be very careful. What if she agreed to marry you because she wanted something from you?"
"Hmmm… then she can have it." He answered nonchalantly. "She can have everything that is mine."
"Ah?" Bei Tian was speechless. How did Zhuo Jingren become like this? However, he also understood him. Lily meant the world to Zhuo Jingren. He had been working his ass off so she would agree to marry him one day. Now that she is his already, Bei Tian was sure that Zhuo Jingren would do everything to please her.
Not that he was against it. Bei Tian was sincerely happy for Zhuo Jingren. However, he found Lily too scary. A woman who had triumph in the business industry is not just some normal woman. Bei Tian was sure that he was lucky that Lily only let him ate a salty pancake.
"The tabloids and online gossip sites has been guessing that you two are already married but there hasn't been any confirmation. Are you planning to announce this soon?" Bei Tian asked. Both Lily and Zhuo Jingren must have made some enemies in the past. People that are just lurking and waiting for them to make some mistakes. Bei Tian was concern that some people might use this opportunity to cause trouble for the couple.
"I don't see the point of announcing my marriage to everyone." He answered.
"Hmmm…" Bei Tian nodded. "You sound too righteous but I know you. Hah. Did she tell you not to tell anyone? I knew you would never do something that would make her angry. Tell me, in the scale of one to ten, how henpecked are you?"
"Still too noisy." Zhuo Jingren suddenly rose from his seat and turned his back at his friend. He looked at the FC Group sign. "Our relationship is ours and there is no need to tell the world about it. The only important thing is that she is already mine and I am hers. Other people's opinions do not matter to us."
"Alright… It is obviously an eleven." Bei Tian let out a laughed before he stood from his seat. "Well then… I will leave now and try to avoid coming to your home again. I am afraid that your wife will truly poison me next time. I'll call you if something comes up."
"Hmmm…" Zhuo Jingren nodded as he tucked his hand into his pocket.
"Oh… by the way. Your mother's death anniversary is coming. Are you going to go to Japan?" Bei Tian asked. Zhuo Jingren and Bei Tian had been together since they were born. Literally.
Both kids grew up in the orphanage and they left the orphanage together. They also went to Japan to work at the same time.
When Zhuo Jingren was adopted by a rich couple, Bei Tian become his right hand man and was always at his beck and call. Because of this, he had grown quite close to the couple who adopted Zhuo Jingren. In fact, he is the number one person who would help Zhuo Jingren's sick mother escape. He was also responsible for carrying Zhuo Jingren's mother towards the destroyed temple that the latter used to frequent.
"Yes. Me and Lily are going to Japan to pay our respects." Zhuo Jingren said. The last time that they went to Japan, he was not able to bring Lily to their home because of some dispute in their previous Yakuza family. However, Bei Tian's arrival here in Hong Kong only meant that the previous trouble had been taken care of.
"Good! That is very good." Bei Tian beamed before he left Zhuo Jingren's office. His friend's happiness is also his triumph. Although he was a little worried that this marriage was too rash, he also knew that Zhuo Jingren was very happy about it. Just this was enough to make him satisfied as well.
However, if that Lily would do something to hurt his friend, then Bei Tian would never hesitate to use all of his resources to get back at her.
While Zhuo Jingren was having a happy conversation with his best friend, Lily was also talking to both Yang Sen and Yang Jing, who surprisingly visited her.
Yang Jing said that his father insisted on seeing Lily since the moment he woke up.
"I have already submitted my resignation letter." Yang Sen said, his face stern while staring at Lily's smiling face. "From now on, I will give my all in doing whatever it is that you want the Yang Family to do."
When Yang Sen woke up, Yang Jing and old man Yang informed him about the current situation and just like his father, he immediately agreed to Lily's terms. However, unlike Old Man Yang, Yang Sen truly felt that he owed Lily a lot. So he decided to do everything that she asked the Yang Family to do.
