Lily's smile became even more brilliant as she stared at He Xinlan's tear strained face. "Say, if I ask MuLihua to bring your head to me… do you think she would agree?"
"Stop this nonsense!" He Xinlan hissed while her eyes were still glued to the TV. "Kill me… Since you are so angry with me, then kill me!"
"Oh… death will come to you soon," Lily said. "I may not like to kill people but that fetus did not belong to me alone. It was mine and my husband's . I won't stop him from causing you a similar or greater amount of pain compared to the grief, loss, and pain that you caused him when you killed his child just because you felt like doing so."
"You and…" He Xinlan looked at Zhuo Jingren, then back at Lily. Zhuo Jingren was the father of Lily's unborn child? "Ah… I forgot. You are a slut.I'm not surprised that the child was not Xuan Hui's… After all, you have a habit of sleeping around, don't you?"
"True," Lily nodded before she smiled. "It is only right that he was not the father of my child."
"One more minute," Lily added. "You can choose to stay silent, but I can't promise you that your daughter will remain safe."
"Do you think I would care about a daughter like that?" He Xinlan countered. "She would even dare to betray me?! The person who raised her? Do you think I would care if she died?"
"I see," Lily said as she turned to face Zhuo Jingren. He spoke not one word before he left the room. "Since you couldn't appreciate me being nice then… let me show you how cruel this world is," she said before turning on the TV again.
On the screen, Mu Lihua could be seen sitting as before when suddenly two men entered the room with an air of menace and directly restrained her. Since Lily hadn't turned on the audio, He Xinlan could not hear what, if anything, the men might have said. What she could see clearly, however, was Mu Lihua staring daggers at the men who just arrived. Her poisonous gaze proved ineffective so she resorted to yelling pointlessly.
"What are you going to do?" He Xinlan asked. A little fear started to creep into her heart. Mu Lihia is an influential figure in Hong Kong. Killing her would not be that easy. He Xinlan was sure that people would question her sudden disappearance, even in light of her ongoing scandal. A normal person would know this. "What are you going to do? You people know that Mu Lihua is influential in Hong Kong. You can't kill her just because you want to!"
"I won't kill her," Lily clarified. "You see… I don't have any personal problems with your daughter. But I know someone who would love to see her dead."As if on cue, a woman suddenly appeared onscreen entering the room where Mu Lihua was being held just as Lily finished speaking The mere sight of this woman made Mu Lihua struggle violently against her restraints.
"Mu Qingling?" He Xinlan asked, her eyes wide and her jaw slack as she gaped at the screen. She had been struggling to control her emotions since she heard her daughter's words, but now this… Seeing Mu Qingling appear before Mu Lihua finally made her show the fear that she'd struggled so hard to suppress. "Why is she here? What is she going to do?"
"She is here because I asked her to be. As to… what she is going to do, I have absolutely no idea," Lily answered. "I am not some psychic. Who knows what will she do to your daughter."
"Well… Mu Qingling hates Mu Lihua so much so that it would not surprise me if she really made her suffer. What do you think?"
"You are cruel!"
"Says the woman who killed people for her own gain."
"Let my daughter go!" He Xinlan said when she saw Mu Qingling approaching Mu Lihua on the TV. "Mu Lihua does not have anything to do with this!"
"Hmmm… I could probably let her go," Lily said. "But I am not sure if Mu Qingling would be so generous as to allow her to leave." She flashed a smile at He Xinlan. "Your daughter is a cruel, manipulative person. She has controlled and manipulated Mu Qingling since they were children. Can you imagine Mu Qingling's reaction once she realized all this was the result of...? I mean… I would not be surprised if she…"
"Stop! Let her go! Stop Mu Qingling… What is she doing? Stop her!" Seeing Lily's lack of reaction to her words, He Xinlan continued, "Mu Lihua did not offend you. You said it yourself. Stop this. Stop it!" How could He Xinlan continue to watch Mu Qingling hurt her one and only daughter?
"Life is like a ferris wheel Mrs. Mu. Sometimes you are up high, sometimes you are down low. Moments like these are a good example of when you are down low. Of course… there is no way that you will go back up there. But that is not the point here." Lily only smiled at He Xinlan. "When you killed Mu Qingling's father… did you ever think that something like this would happen in the future?"
"How about when you killed my mother? Hm?" Lily asked.
"I killed your mother because she was a slut! Just like you! If you hate me so much because I killed your mother then why don't you kill me too?" He Xinlan countered. "Your… I know I made a mistake by killing your mother but it was not entirely my fault! She looked like my husband's mistress alright?"
Lily instantly raised an eyebrow at He Xinlan. A mistress?
"Bec Facci looked like my husband's mistress and you look like your mother, so when I saw you crossing the street I thought you were your mother," He Xinlan continued, her eyes glued to Mu Lihua. "Now… let my daughter go!"
"Who… told you that your husband had a mistress?" Lily asked. According to her research, Mu Huang never had a mistress. Mu Huang's father was a known womanizer and obviously this created a lot of problems. Because of this, he never engaged in activities like that. This instantly made Lily wonder where He Xinlan got her information. "Did someone show you a photo of my mother and tell you that she was your husband's mistress?"
