"Here is my card. Send the keyboard to this address," the man said as he extended a calling card to Lily. Lily, being Lily, did not even look at it. She merely tilted her head and signaled Yang Mi to get it for her.
"How arrogant," the man snorted while shifting his eyes away from Lily. However, when he noticed that Lily had already left, he immediately tried to catch up and stop her by holding her arm. "Hey! We are not done talking! You owe me an apology."
In response, Lily looked at the man intently. The man was tall, maybe as tall as Zhuo Jingren. He had a strong, well-defined jaw and beautiful phoenix eyes, however the man's overall cold aura and chilly tone would easily intimidate anyone. Still, this man was not as good looking as her own husband.
Since when did she start comparing every man to Zhuo Jingren?
Lily felt her cheeks grow warm when she realized that comparing every man to Zhuo Jingren had become her habit lately. What a shameless woman, she beamed inwardly before she cleared her throat. "I don't owe you anything." She shook off the man's hand before walking away with a plan in mind.
She was originally planning to buy sexy lingerie as a surprise for her husband, but now she's finally made up her mind. She will surprise him with either a strip tease or pole dancing. Lily's thoughts were once again interrupted when she felt the man grab her arm again.
"Apologize!" the man said in a low voice. "Don't make me beg for it. Accept that you deliberately bumped into me to get my attention. A woman like you is what I hate the most. You act cold and yet go this low to attract a man's attention."
"Apologize now," he said. To his surprise his words only earned a snort from Lily. Then he noticed that the latter signaled her assistant not to get involved. At this point, he also noticed Daohu, who was standing behind Yang Mi while giving him a murderous look.
He noticed Lily looking at him from head to toe before she asked, "Are you an escaped patient from the mental hospital?"
"That won't work on me," he answered. "This is not the first time that someone's done this. If not for the very expensive keyboard that you ruined I would have let this go and ignored your advances. That keyboard is very important to me."
"Crazy," Lily rolled her eyes before she gave him a provoking smile. "Why the hell would you think that I am making advances towards you? Do you see yourself as an Adonis on Earth? You are only a seven on my scale, Mister. You have a long way to go before you become a ten."
"Liar. Your blush a while ago was a dead giveaway of your motives. Are you still going to deny that you deliberately bumped into me to gain my attention?" He narrowed his eyes at her. How could a woman stand his intimidating glare? Qi Xia was so used to people cowering in fear as he coldly spoke to them that he found it irritating that this woman was able to mock him like this.
"Blush?" Lily sneered before she walked towards the guy. "You think too highly of yourself Mister. I was not blushing because a lowly person like you was in front of me," she said, leaning in closer and lowering her voice just enough for the man to hear. "I was blushing because I was thinking of all the naughty things that I am going to do to my husband tonight."
Lily withdrew and took a step back as she gave the man a provoking smile. "Take care of your ego, Mister. One day it will become too big for you to carry," she tossed over her shoulder as she turned around and sashayed away from Qi Xia.
"Master Qi… shall we pursue her?" A man who was just a few years older than Lily approached the frozen Qi Xia, concern apparent in his voice. How could someone anger Master Qi to the point of him clenching his fists? This only happens when the Master is talking to his father and no one else.
"No need. Call Qin Liwei," Qi Xia said, his eyes still glued in the direction that Lily had sashayed off to. "Tell him that I am here so he'd better make sure he invests in my esports company as soon as possible."
"But Master… that woman is married," his assistant tried to reason.
"Qi Ming, have you seen me fail when it comes to women?"
"Never," Qi Ming answered while shaking his head. Qi Xia, his older brother, is the best when it comes to coaxing a woman. Single or married, Qi Xia had never failed in making a woman his.
"No matter how fierce, she is still a woman. She will fall into my hands one day," Qi Xia said as he started walking in the opposite direction of Lily. "Do we have a way to get a copy of her schedule for the next few days?"
"Yes, Master… Miss Xi was able to infiltrate her company and is working as one of the secretaries under Head Secretary Yang. We should be able to use her to our advantage."
"Great. I will pay her a visit this weekend."
"Master, my only worry is her husband, President Zhuo of the Zhuo Capital. He is a formidable opponent," Qi Ming said.
His words only earned a snort from Qi Xia as he continued walking towards the mall exit. "Call Mu Lihua. It's time for her to use her charms on that man. Tell her Brother Qi will take this as a payment for what she owes me from before."
"Alright," Qi Ming nodded, his face serious as he thought about the smile on Lily's face. He wanted to tell his older brother that he could feel a really sinister aura behind Lily's smiling face, however, he knew that Qi Xia would only reject this and would say that he is being overly superstitious. Qi Ming could only shake his head inwardly. He could only hope that he is wrong and that Lily Zhuo is just like every other woman that Qi Xia was able to seduce.
