"I have nothing to do with their crimes," Mu Lihua said, ignoring Lily's mockery.
"Alright," Lily nodded as she ate the last piece of her doughnut. "I believe we are done talking? Ah… look at that. You didn't even touch your food. What a waste."
"Stop targeting me," Mu Lihua said as she continued to ignore Lily's nonchalance. "I have nothing to do with what she did. My mother is a selfish person. Seeing me like this won't make her reveal herself. If you continue to target me, I will be forced to fight back and… it would not be very good to have a war in the business industry."
"Oh…" Lily slowly nodded before she smiled at Mu Lihua. "Is this a joke?"
"I have no time to joke with you," Mu Lihua said in a serious tone as she put the flash drive in her bag. "If you won't stop then I will do my best to fight back."
"Hmmm… declaring war against me. How bold. It makes me wonder if you're crazy or stupid? Which one is it?" Lily said before her expression also turned serious. "It is your mother who owes me, Miss Mu. Your family owes me a lot. You don't get to have a say about my plans. As I said, you are nothing but a decoy. I want your mother, and I will get her even if that means destroying your pretty little face."
"If I give my mother to you… will you stop attacking my company?"
"First and foremost… it is not your company, and... No. I will not," Lily answered without batting an eyelid.
"Why? Don't you think you have done enough damage? I am just a bystander in this… whatever it is that you want from my mother. Moreover, Mu Qingling… she might be the true heir as her father was the one who owned Mu Group before my father took over, but she does not have the ability to run the company. She is just a simple entertainer who wanted to become famous by selling her body. She doesn't have the brains or the qualifications to become a CEO."
"Of course she doesn't. You made sure that she didn't learn anything related to business," Lily answered. Mu Lihua was four years older than Mu Qingling so she had been aware when Mu Qingling and her family got into an accident that killed both of her parents.
After the death of the Mu couple, Mu Huang and He Yuyan adopted Mu Qingling and chose not to inform her of her true origins. This was because they feared that she would try to claim ownership of the company that her father built. They also asked Mu Huang's influential friends to keep this knowledge a secret from everyone.
After some time, people forgot who originally started the company just as they forgot how and when Mu Qingling appeared. She was the forgotten heir of the Mu Group and her father, who grew up abroad and only came back to China to claim his inheritance, was killed without even knowing the extent of his wealth.
"A vicious woman like you… does not deserve any pity. You might not hurt your sister physically but you made sure that she learned nothing that could help her run the company that was supposed to be under her name. This alone… shows your ruthlessness and the type of person that you are. However, I can't deny the fact that I am really enjoying this game," Lily added when Mu Lihua did not respond to her taunts.
"I am enjoying this game, Miss Mu, and I don't easily let go of the things that I enjoy," Lily said as she rose from her seat. "The purpose of this conversation has been achieved. You now know the reason why I am targeting you. See you soon, Miss Mu. I will send your regards to your pretty little cousin," Lily promised with a smile as sheleft Mu Lihua behind.
After Lily boarded the car, she instantly ordered them to take her to Sky City. Zhuo Jingren mentioned that he has a few meetings today and that he might be late, so Lily decided to cook dinner so he could eat the moment that he reached home.
"Yang Mi… can you drop by the grocery store and buy some chicken? I'm making a chicken casserole for dinner tonight," Lily requested as she handed the list of ingredients to Yang Mi. "Make sure to buy everything on the list… I will stay in the car and take a nap," she said after handing her credit card to Yang Mi. Dinner sorted, Lily kneaded her temples and closed her eyes.
Lily anticipated that Mu Lihua would confront her father after this. She would surely panic and tell her father about the fact that Lily knows exactly what happened to Mu Qingling's parents. This fact alone was enough to ruin them, so it was reasonable for Mu Lihua to take this seriously. Lily was pretty sure that Mu Huang had regular contact with He Xinlan, so it was a given that he would surely pass this information on to He Xinlan.
Lily, on the other hand, had no plans to stop attacking Mu Lihua.
What she wants to see right now is for Mu Lihua to blame everything on He Xinlan. With Mu Lihua's ruthless nature, it wouldn't be too surprising if she brought He Xinlan to Lily on a platter. Because of He Xinlan, Mu Lihua had been targeted, and the name that she'd painstakingly made for herself was ruined. Lily was sure that Mu Lihua would not let this pass.
All Lily wanted to do was to make He Xinlan feel the pain of losing. She would lose her daughter… someone that she loved and cherished. Then Lily would make sure that she would lose her medical license, her hospital, her husband, and everything else that she adored. By then… her mental defenses would be too weak and it would be easier for Lily to flush her out.
