"After days of waiting, Shanshan finally did a pregnancy test and it turned out negative. She was just over reacting," Lily said before she laid back on the bed and turned tot Zhuo Jingren with her most serious expression. "Don't forget to punch that Fernando the next time you see him, and no more texting him. He is a bad influence through and through."
"Are you afraid that I will ghost you as well?" Zhuo Jingren turned to lily and rested his head on his hand while a devilish smile graced his handsome face.
"Of course not! However, it is always best to take precautions. Who knows what will happen in the future? What if you discover that I am an extremely evil witch and you decide to leave me? It's always better to avoid talking to people who might influence your decision to leave," Lily said with the same stern expression on her face. What if Fernando's mental sickness is contagious? Lily would not want her husband to become a coward like her friend.
"You don't even know why Fernando did it. You need to listen to his explanation before hating him first." Zhuo Jingren said, making Lily narrow her eyes at him.
"You definitely need to stay away from him. You know what? You are also not allowed to see him again. I will punch him myself once I see him." She then put her head on the crook of Zhuo Jingren's neck. "Men are human being and we are all unreliable. Our emotions are not permanent as well… there will always be changes in the future."
"Hmmm… that is normal." Lily felt Zhuo Jingren nod.
"Why are you agreeing with me?" she instantly withdrew from his neck and stared at him.
"If I won't agree with you…" he made a deliberate pause before he gave her a silly smile. "You will only say that I am a hypocrite and would argue about the nature of humans. It is still seven in the morning. Too early to argue about something insignificant about our relationship."
Lily instantly widened her eyes at him. However… she chose to put her head back into Zhuo Jingren's neck and cuddled with him. His words were actually true. It is normal for emotions to change… and it is definitely too early for them to argue. What amuses Lily right now, is Zhuo Jingren's ability to read her thoughts. Lily felt amused and of course, happy that the connection that they both have already reached this level.
"Alright spill it out," she said after a few minutes of comfortable silence then continued, "You are hiding something.". How could Lily not miss the sudden change in Zhuo Jingren's tone? She felt him shift before he answered.
"I am not hiding something." Zhuo Jingren said.
"You are a bad liar, President Zhuo."
"I am not. I just felt that what I found out is not yet enough. I already asked Go Jichen to focus on these matters. I am pretty confident that we can expect a result from him this week."
"So? You are not going to tell me what you found out?" Lily raised an eyebrow at Zhuo Jingren, her lips lifted into a small smile as she leaned in closer to him. "You can't hide anything from me. I can literally smell it from you."
"So you are not only a profiteer but also a bear." Zhuo Jingren said before he laughed lightly.
"Bears are known to have the best sense of smell in the world." Zhuo Jingren answered.
"Oh… I have no idea and I won't fall for it. Stop changing the topic." Lily said before she playfully slapped her husband's arms. "I want to know everything that you found out."
"That's the problem, I haven't found out everything yet." Zhuo Jingren answered, making Lily stare intently at him. He then continued, "But it was positive. He is your twin brother. A DNA will settle everything. I am already working on that. However, all the clue adds up to this conclusion."
"Alright… tell me about it." Lily said. She heard Zhuo Jingren let out a small sigh of helplessness. Lily knew that he could not really hiding anything from her. He just wanted to know more details to avoid confusion about the current situation.
"Qin Chuan and Zhang Yifei married twenty-six year ago." Zhuo Jingren nodded. "This only means that if he is your father then… he met your mother first before he got married. He was not a cheating man and your mother was not a mistress."
"Oh… but if Qin Chuan and Zhang Yifei are already lovers at that time then… my mother can still be considered a mistress. No one knew of her real identity here so… they might have labeled her as someone who wanted to climb into a rich man's bed." Lily continued before letting out a sigh.
"That is right. Anyway… the second thing that I want to talk to you about is that Qin Yuang Feng was born one day after you."
Lily only nodded at his words before she furrowed her brows. "Does this mean that someone separated us after my mother gave birth? If we were twins… being born on a different day is extremely rare. So it's either… he was registered a day later than me that would lead me to believe that…" Lily stared at Zhuo Jingren for a few seconds before she continued, "he was stolen away from my mother after she gave birth."
"Or we were really born on different dates and the Qin Family only cared about the baby boy and chose to abandon the baby girl that was born from a foreigner. Which one do you think it is?" Lily asked Zhuo Jingren.
"See? We still have a lot of questions. This is the reason why I don't want to give an incomplete information to you." Zhuo Jingren slowly pinched Lily's nose. "You tend to overthink things. I don't want this to be the reason why you can't sleep at night."
"If I can't sleep… you can always tire me out. So don't worry about that." Lily instantly countered before her eyes turned gentle towards her husband. "I understand your concern. Thank you but I can assure you that this will not affect my way of sleeping in anyway. Right now, my priority is not in the past but in the future and that only involves making more money and… you."
