Just like what Lily expected, the first thing that Mu Lihua did was to confirm this to her own aunt. She went to Mainland China and used her connections to see her Aunt Yuyan. After confirming everything with her Aunt, Mu Lihua went to the Mu Family's mansion and confronted her father about what she had learned.
It was a total chaos as Mu Lihua blamed her parents for hiding away this information from her. She went all out in criticizing her father and blaming him for everything. This conversation ended with her walking out in rage, her eyes were red from the tears that she tried to stop from falling. Mu Lihua felt that she was extremely unlucky to be born into such a family and she hated every part of it.
Of course, the first thing that Mu Lihua did after leaving the Mu mansion was to plan. She wanted a solid counter attack. Mu Lihua was aware that she could be inferior to Lily. However, this would not stop her from trying to retaliate. She would never go down without a fight.
Meanwhile, after Mu Lihua left the Mu Mansion, Mu Huang immediately tried to call He Xinlan. This time he used a satellite phone that he just obtained from one of his friends in the military and called He Xinlan directly.
After informing He Xinlan that Mu Lihua already knew everything, he ended the call and continued to plan on how to silence Mu Qingling permanently. According to Mu Lihua, Mu Qingling might already be aware of what they did before and a normal person would immediately retaliate and try to expose this in the media.
"Are you sure that she is in that motel?" he asked the other person on the phone.
"Then… kill her. I want you to make it look like she could not take the guilt from lying about what Mu Lihua did to her and killed herself. Mu Lihua treated her properly and she still backstabbed her own sister. This should be enough to make her kill herself. Have her write this into a suicide note before you finish her off." He ordered before dropping the call. He then heaved a sigh as he thought about the chaos that had been happening lately.
When Zhuo Jingren received the news that Mu Lihua wanted a press conference, the first thing that he did was let out a surprised gasp. Once again, his wife had proven him that she was indeed a very capable strategist. Even he, would not be capable of that.
"That is because you only know how to kill people." Bei Tian chimed in, as if he was able to guess his thoughts. "Sister in law is indeed the best. I should find a wife like her- ah… should find one better than her."
"Now you are calling her sister in law." Zhuo Jingren mused before he ended the call with one of his men. "I can see the sparkle in your eyes from here. Don't think of admiring my wife too much. She is already mine."
In response, Bei Tian's eyes widened. "Ah… of course not. She is even scarier than you. I would rather not have someone who can read my mind like an open book!"
"You just said that you wanted someone like her." Zhuo Jingren countered.
"Hmmmm…" Bei Tian stroked his chin in contemplation. "Now that I think about it. I don't think I am brave enough to talk to someone like her everyday. My brains would not be able to handle it. It might explode or decide to leave me one day. Ah… not that it matters, my good looks is still my number one selling point. Of course, there is also my skills and…" Bei Tian continued to talk as Zhuo Jingren shook his head in amusement.
"How was Mu Qingling?" Zhuo Jingren interrupted his friend.
"As expected, that despicable Mu Huang sent someone to kill her." Bei Tian said. "Of course, this is my expertise, I won't bore you with the details. I already took care of it."
"Hmmm… Alright. Once Mu Lihua's press conference start we will reveal everything. By now, He Xinlan should be on her way to save her daughter, unaware that Mu Lihua has already planned to sell her out." Zhuo Jingren said.
"Why are you so sure that she would come? Sister in law is not a god, alright? Her words should not be that accurate?" Bei Tian said.
"It is not accurate. However she analyzed He Xinlan's state of mind and deduced that the latter would act if she heard that Mu Qingling already knew about this. Her medical career is very important to her. This is something that she is very proud of, if Mu Qingling tried to retaliate by filing a case against her, she would surely lose her license and reputation." Zhuo Jingren explained patiently, his tone very gentle, as if he was talking to a child. "Moreover, she would never let her own daughter hate her and would try to reach out to explain why she made such decisions."
"Oh… then what if Mu Huang did not call her? What if she was not aware?"
"He did. He made a call last night just after Mu Lihua did. Two calls actually. One was to an untraceable number while the other Is to his men." Zhuo Jingren answered. In response, Bei Tian nodded, a chill slowly ran down his spine. This couple… Lily and Zhuo Jingren were very capable to the point that they are extremely scary. Then he slowly nodded, he is extremely lucky that he is on good terms with this couple, ah.
Just as they predicted, He Xinlan was indeed on her way to Hongkong. After she heard the news from Mu Huang last night, she was not able to stop herself from coming home. How could she let her daughter hate her? All she wanted now was to explain her side of the story. She needed to tell Mu Lihua how she thought that Bec was Mu Huang's mistress. She needed to clear things out and tell her how her emotions got to her when she saw Lily cross the street one night.
Lily and Bec's similarities were so uncanny that she immediately thought that Lily was Mu Huang's daughter. This was the very reason why she hit the gas and sped towards Lily. She was furious and she felt that her husband betrayed her. How could her husband have a child with his mistress? He Xinlan was just too angry and confused.
At the hospital, she used the reason that Yang Lina gave her to kill Bec. She wanted her gone. Women like her who loved to climb into somebody else's bed deserved to die and rot in hell!
She wanted her daughter to understand her side of the story and at least empathize with her. She was a mother and a woman with insecurities. She loved her husband too much and it was normal for a woman like her to get jealous.
That was the reason why she did what she did seven years ago. Jealousy and nothing more.
