"Really?" Lily's eyebrows shot up in amusement the second she heard Yang Mi's report about Qin Mo and Tang Lingyun. She originally thought that it would take a little longer before Qin Mo would decide to make his own wife suffer just to score a few points with Lily. "A murderer, trying to make me watch as he mistreats his own wife. Isn't this just absolutely ridiculous?" Lily thought out loud. Qin Mo was now the primary suspect of murdering her child. Does this man think that he will still be on good terms with Lily after what he did?
"Because of this, she was able to land a good role for a film that is set to hit theaters next year," Yang Mi continued.
"Hmmm… the only thing that makes me curious is why Tang Lingyun never bothered to ask Xuan Hui for help. Do we have anything about Tang Lingyun seeing Qin Fei lately?"
"The last time that she saw Qin Fei was three weeks ago," Yang Mi answered.
"Strange," Lily noted before looking at the stack of papers in front of her. "Alright. Let's observe for now. Right now… I want you to get Mr. Beau's report for me. September is about to end. I want to finalize Harmony Isle by the end of this quarter. Arrange another meeting with Mr. Han and Mr. Rossi. I need them to update me regarding their cooperation with Mr. Wang on thebidding."
"Copy that," Yang Mi nodded. "Also… here is President Zhuo Jingren's travel schedule until the year ends. Secretary Go asked me to check if you two plan to travel on the same dates since both Zhuo Capital and FC Group have branches in the US. He also mentioned going to Singapore and Mainland China to help you with the Harmony Isle branches in those areas."
"He must be really bored," Lily quipped as she accepted the tablet. At a glance she could see all of the dates and places Zhuo Jingren was scheduled to visit as well as the the people he intended to meet. "Lee Group?" Lily thought out loud. "Why would a hospital and a company want to schedule meetings with him over and over again?"
"Ah… I already asked Go Jichen about it. He said that President Zhuo keeps cancelling on them at the last minute. The CEO of this company even offered to visit Zhuo Capital's main office but… ummm…"
Lily raised an eyebrow as she stared at Yang Mi. "Ummm? What?"
"President Zhuo keeps refusing because he said… he can't commit to any partnerships right now as he is still enjoying his honeymoon phase." Boisterous laughter rang out in Lily's office as soon as she heard Yang Mi's words.
"Shameless," she shook her head. What kind of businessman would do this just because he got married? This was the first time that Lily had heard of anything like this!
"That is what Go Jichen said too… but President Zhuo just said that he wanted to spend more time with you," Yang Mi answered. What kind of President would pass up an opportunity to have a collaboration with a prestigious company like the Lee Group? Both Yang Mi and Secretary Go thought that passing up this opportunity was incredibly stupid.
However, just seeing the twinkling eyes of both of their bosses somehow changed their views and opinions. Both Lily and Zhuo Jingren are happy. And that is what's important.
"Yeah… That would be his exact answer," Lily smiled before she stared at Yang Mi with interest. "You seemed to have become even prettier. Did you get a facial lately?"
"I… No," Yang Mi instantly lowered her head, making Lily chuckle.
"And you changed your lipstick too," she continued as she teased her secretary mercilessly. "Do you have a new boyfriend?"
"President! That is not possible. I just thought that the shade looked good on me so I bought it."
"Really," Yang Mi nodded. "President, if there is nothing else… I would like to go and do the things that you requested."
"Alright. Here," Lily handed the tablet back to Yang Mi. "The death anniversary of Zhuo Jingren's mother is coming up so I will take at least a one-day vacation to accompany him to Japan for the weekend. Add it to my schedule."
"Also… a man named Qin Yuanfeng will visit the company or try to see me in the next few days. Let him in. No questions asked," Lily added. Since Zhuo Jingren already found out that they were in fact siblings, then it would be reasonable to assume that he will visit her soon.
"President, that reminds me. The personal file of Mr. Qin was already emailed. I forwarded it this morning. It was sent to me by Mr. Arison's secretary. He said this was the only thing that they could find about him," Yang Mi said.
"Oh. That was quick." Lily instantly went to open her email to check the file. While Zhuo Jingren had already launched his operation, Lily launched one of her own to make sure that they covered everything. Zhuo Jingren's investigation focused more on Qin Yuanfeng's parents, Qin Chuan and Zhang Yifei, while Lily's investigation was focused on her brother.
"Huh?" Three unhappy lines snaked across Lily's brow when she opened the file. "A what?" she reacted after reading the first paragraph. To Lily, this was an incredibly shocking piece of information, ah.
"A genius with an IQ of 142. He excelled in both physics and math and even represented China in some international mathematics quizzes, but he ended up as an actor?" Lily thought out loud before she lifted her head to look at Yang Mi. "Are you sure this is the document that was sent to you?"
"I am absolutely positive," Yang Mi answered. She didn't even open this file as it was password encrypted. Only Lily knows the password for the files that George Arison sends. "Is there something wrong, President?"
Lily did not answer Yang Mi. Her brows were furrowed as she continued to read her sibling's file. A genius who chose to become an actor. This is something that Lily finds really strange. How could someone who excelled in math love art and dancing all of a sudden? The investigation did not show any record of Qin Yuanfeng receiving any acting or dancing lessons. Moreover, how could Qin Chuan agree to his son flitting around on a set when he was heir to the Qin Family company?
"What the hell…" Lily was unable to continue speaking as her brain raced ahead of her mouth as it stumbled upon a suspicion.
Someone must have been trying to suppress her brother. Make him an actor so he will lack the skills to manage the business interests of the Qin Family.
"Make my trip to China a week earlier… that would be the last week of October," Lily said. Yang Mi tried to read Lily's motive for bringing the trip forward, but her gaze was unfathomable. There are only two reason why her brother would choose to act. Either someone told him to do so, or he was doing someone a favor - and Lily's brain is already thinking that Zhang Yifei is the one responsible for this. "Also… can you ask Secretary Go to give me a list or maybe even an illustration of the Qin Family Tree. I want to familiarize myself with everyone before I see them. Include some pictures too."
"Got it President."
