"Hmmm…" Zhuo Jingren nodded at Lily's words, a small smile evident on his face. At least, this time, Lily included him in her future plans. Of course, inwardly President Zhuo was already jumping from happiness. Lily had always been honest about her priorities which only involved earning more and more money. However, this time, she included him! He had a hard time controlling his happiness, ah. But he didn't dare to show it to Lily. That would be too much for her to handle.
"Alright, just inform me once you have that information. I will talk to someone as well. I feel like… I don't know... I have this gut feeling that has been bugging me for a long time now." She said. While she could not wait to find out the truth about everything, Lily would never make this her priority. She had a company to run with thousands of people working for her. People who were feeding their families from their monthly wages. She could not afford to prioritize something that has happened in the past over the more important and practical things.
The past does not and will not define her future now. They were there for a reason. Of course, she would not act as a hypocrite and avoid making people pay. The debt that was owed is always meant to be paid. But… revenge does not have a timeframe. She could always do this whenever she feels bored.
Lily let out a sigh before she cuddled into her husband's arms again. Who is she kidding? When she came here all she thought about was killing people and making them suffer. Maybe this is... the legendary power of love?
With this in mind, she giggled before she closed her eyes as she tried to sleep.
On the other side of the City, Tang Lingyun was already fixing her makeup. It was still early in the morning and yet, she was already in a hurry to leave as soon as she can. She hastily combed her long hair and grabbed her high-heeled stiletto from the floor.
"In a hurry to leave?" An old croaky voice echoed inside the room. "You haven't even asked me for the script and yet, here you are already sneaking out. Ah… Miss Tang is really different from those women that I have met before."
"Mr. Ang… I…" Tang Lingyun instantly avoided the old man's fiery gaze as she took a single step back. "I just wanted to order some food. I tried calling the front desk but it seems that the phone is not working. So… I… I decided to go down to get some food."
"Is that so?" the old man raised an eyebrow. "You know… I am hungry but it is for something else."
"Mr. Ang… this… this is not a part of the deal!" Tang Lingyun said while stepping back until she hit the wall.
"Oh? I don't even remember making a deal with you. On the other hand, I remember Mr. Qin saying that you needed a role in the new film that I am producing. Miss Tang… do you still need that role?"
"No wait. Don't come near me. I already did everything that you asked me last night. I cannot… NO! Let go!"
"Miss Tang… your husband has already sold you for a role. So stop acting like you are still a young actress and just go with the flow, alright?" Mr. Ang let out a sinister chuckle as lust flashed in his eyes.
It was already afternoon when Tang Lingyun checked out of the hotel. With her big shades and black hat, Tang Lingyun rushed to her car and instantly closed the door. She made sure that no one saw her before she let out a sigh of relief.
She instantly teared up and broke down. This was her third time... the third time when Qin Mo told her to go and meet a producer for a role which ended up with her having to do whatever they wanted. In the end, they would give her a script for a role that she wanted. The previous two producers only gave her a short role in a series. A cannon fodder who would eventually die after fifteen minutes of taping.
Of course, Tang Lingyun could not decline any of it. After all, no one really wanted to work with an actress who was associated with the people from the underworld. Though the Tang Family was already gone for good, some actors were still cautious and not comfortable working with her.
"Hypocrites!" she hissed under her breath. Because of the fall of the Tang Family she found it hard to recover as well. She had already issued an apology but still, people refused to hire her for a decent role. Tang Lingyun could not help but hit the steering wheel of her car out of frustration and anger.
Since Qin Mo knew about Lily's background, his treatment towards her totally changed. He was not the same Qin Mo that Tang Lingyun once loved. At first, Tang Lingyun tried to fix their relationship and acted meekly. However, Qin Mo did not even bother to look her in the eyes anymore. Tang Lingyun was confident that all this was because of the evidence that Lily had showed during her launch. She was sure that this was all Lily's fault.
As time passed, Qin Mo had even gotten colder and secretive. He would not let Tang Lingyun enter his study anymore. This made her so angry, she almost broke her kind and magnanimous façade around Qin Mo. However, she managed to keep a control over her emotions and even asked her son Qin Liwei, to get on the good side of the investors so he would be able to contest the CEO position once Qin Mo decided to make Lily, the heir.
That was the only thing that Tang Lingyun could think of to help his son. She thought that Qin Mo would just keep on ignoring her. However, the latter made another ruthless decision; he made her sleep with the producers to get a role. How could a husband do this to the woman whom he had promised to spend a lifetime with? If this was not absolute cruelty, then what was?
