Qin Fei continued to smile all day. She couldn't help it. As someone who had been in the industry for years, Qin Fei was extremely familiar with the way everything worked. In the film industry it was perfectly normal for a few new talents to be taken advantage of like this. "Oh, by the way..." she began as she gave Xuan Hui a big smile. "My car broke downo I decided to buy a new one that would be more convenient for transporting our son."
"Which car?" Xuan Hui asked.
"It's the new BMW. It's not even available in Hong Kong yet. My friend knows someone from Europe who helped me order it. Isn't that amazing?"
Xuan Hui only nodded at Qin Fei's words. "You have been spending a lot lately," he commented. "You should focus on your health instead of shopping almost every day."
Qin Fei instantly sulked upon hearing her husband's words. "So you just want me to stay at home all day?"
"Feifei… stop acting like a spoiled child. You are still healing from an operation. You can always shop once you're feeling better. Plus, our son needs you. You have been spending an awful lot of time outside while our son is always with his nanny. At this stage he still needs you," Xuan Hui explained. He had read a lot of books about about postnatal care and the changes a woman's body undergoes both physically and mentally after birth, so he understood Qin Fei's behavioral changes.
According to the books he read, it's normal for a woman to feel a little insecure and even depressed after giving birth.Therefore it is very important for the husband to take care of his wife's mental health.
"Hmph! If that's the case I will go home and just sit there all day,every day!" Qin Fei rose from her seat in a sulk with no plans to listen to anything |Xuan Hui had to say. She immediately strode out of the room with a big pout on her face. She had only left the house to have some 'me' time was just having and to spend some quality time with her husband and he was already telling her that she should stay at home. Qin Fei instantly felt that it was absolutely unfair..
As a new mother, Qin Fei had her own issues and struggles. She had been a good daughter-in-law and she'd always followed Yang Lina's orders, so the first thing she thought about after giving birth was gaining the approval of her mother-in-law. This pressure made her feel even more stressed out, but now that Yang Lina was gone Qin Fei felt that she should celebrate and do the things that she wasn't allowed to do when Yang Lina was present.
Of course, Qin Fei knew that Xuan Hui would set aside his work to coax her and maybe even buy her some gifts. She knew that her husband could not stand seeing her mad. With this in mind, Qin Fei marched out of the building, completely oblivious of the deathly stare Xuan Hui's secretary had given her.
Meanwhile, Lily just smiled as she listened to Mu Huang's lawyer stated the laws that she had 'violated'. How could Mu Huang be so dumb to waltz into the tiger's den with a third-rate lawyer? Lily wondered if the man had become muddle headed because of losing his favorite daughter and not being able to contact his wife.
"First, my lawyer is on her way," Lily interrupted the lawyer. "Second, Mu Lihua's disappearance won't benefit me in anyway. She was never a threat to my existence in any way whatsoever. Third, she was not a threat to my marriage either. Fourth, I was busy dealing with an accident in my company. Fifth, I don't even know Mu Lihua's mother, and this is my first time seeing Mr. Mu Huang. Therefore, I'm not sure why you're here, barking like a dog."
"President," Lily interrupted the lawyer with the same cordial smile on her face. Seeing the lawyer's confused expression, Lily instantly added "Call me President."
"President Zhuo… I don't understand how my family offended you, but my daughter is very important to me. I would appreciate it if…"
"Mr. Mu, I am wondering… The cases against you have been piling up. Aren't you even worried about those cases?" Lily interrupted the man. "If I were you I would try to gatherf some solid evidence to avoid being prosecuted."
"Those are baseless accusations."
"Are they?" Lily smirked at Mu Huang.
"I can assure you that I'm innocent and all the accusations against me are baseless!"" Mu Huang said, his tone of voice loud and bombastic with the righteous fervor of the obviously guilty. However, Lily continued to smile knowingly, which instantly irked him massively.made him a little irritated.
"I think we are just wasting each other's time right now," Lily concluded. "If you want to file a case then… you can try to talk about the boring details with my lawyer, or you could go and file one right now. Either way, we are done here. I'm done counting the seconds of my life that have bee wasted talking both of you. I don't want to die from boredom."
Both the lawyer and Mu Huang were rendered speechless by Lily words. In the end, they could only look at each other with an unspoken understanding visible in their eyes. They then rose from their seats and proceeded to leave. Just as Mu Huang thought, a single lawsuit would not really scare Lily. He clenched his fists in exasperation as he walked out of the FC Group's tower.
His brows were knitted as he thought about his missing wife and daughter. The only people capable of doing this is Lily and Zhuo Jingren. Unfortunately, he could not find anything that could tie them to his family's disappearance. Once again, Mu Qingling's face flashed through his mind.
Mu Qingling had been giving him trouble these past few days. It was so annoying because he had already ordered his men to find Mu Qingling and eliminate her. However, it seemed that the latter was hiding in a rat's hole or something. Itwas extremely difficult to even see a glimpse of her hair!
On the other hand, Zhuo Jingren was not having a very good day. His brows were furrowed and his face was getting darker by the minute as he continued listening to Secretary Go's report about the man named Qin Yuanfeng.
"A stepmother,, huh." Zhuo Jingren thought out loud. The report clearly states that Qin Yuanfeng is Zhang Yifei's stepson. He is also twenty seven and was born a day after Lily. If his guess was correct then the man was indeed Lily's twin.
Now the question is… why were they separated? Was it intentional? And who was responsible for this separation?
Zhuo Jingren clearly remembered how Qin Yuanfeng mentioned that he was told that his twin was dumb, unlike Lily. Who could have given him this information and why is he even looking for Lily?
There were a lot of questions that needed answers. Zhuo Jingren felt that Lily's background was even more complicated than he had originally thought.
"Shall I go ahead and send this to the madam?" Secretary Go asked with a serious expression on his face.
"Do you know when Qin Chuan married Zhang Yifei?" Zhuo Jingren asked, ignoring Secretary Go's question.
"Ah… exactly twenty six year ago," Secretary Go answered.
"Alright. You don't have to send it to her because I want you to gather more information first. I want you to research everything about Qin Chuan and Zhang Yifei. Why did they get married? Were they lovers, or just betrothed to each other? I want you to be thorough. Make this your top priority."
