After processing all the information about her brother, all Lily needed to do was to wait. She wanted to wait for him to come and approach her. On the other hand, she also made sure to find the time to familiarize herself with everyone in the Qin Family. She needed all the data that she could get before she would begin plotting against someone.
Meanwhile, Lily was also monitoring the Qin and Xuan Families. She was using the Yang Family to monitor the movements of the Qin Family's main branch. Lily had been really busy with the company as well because of the upcoming soft opening of Harmony Isle. Together with her trusted associates, Lily had been really meticulous in her planning.
Harmony Isle will be the first property of the FC Group in the Far East and she would like it to be as perfect as possible.
"Here is the proposal from the PR team. I've already look at it. The strategy is to focus on advertisements on Social Media. Since you want an online store that is connected to our new mall, we need to do a lot of prep work when it comes to our social media presence. Our shopping mobile app is also ready. We are currently testing it using different types of phones. You can check it out if you have the time. Our development team is working their ass off to give our customers a seamless experience. Anyway…" Cathy did not continue speaking when she saw that Lily had started massaging her temples. Cathy let out a sigh before she asked, "When was the last time that you had a good night's sleep?"
"What is a good night's sleep?" Lily chuckled. Even Zhuo Jingren had been nagging her about her behavior lately, however he was still helpless in the end. Lily was stubborn, and even her husband had no power to change this aspect of her character.
"Your husband just lets you stay up all night, working?"
"He was working too," Lily answered before she accepted the bottle of water that Cathy handed to her. "We can't make any mistakes. The opening is…"
"You really need to take care of yourself Lily. We don't want our own CEO getting sick on the day of the opening," Cathy said. Her brows were furrowed in displeasure as she stared at Lily who had her eyes closed.
"We've already encountered some delays because of the accident. I don't want to extend our opening again. Christmas will be the final date. I just want to make everything perfect. We can't afford to have another problem," Lily explained. She had enemies lurking around, waiting for her to make a single mistake. She could not afford to slack even for a minute.
"You are exhausting yourself and doing far too much. Why are you in a hurry anyway? Is this some race of who dies first?" Cathy said sarcastically before sighing. "You remind me so much of Lilian."
"She trained me."
"Yeah… right," Cathy answered. "On a serious note, you need to spend more time with your husband. Have a little fun away from all this."
"I am spending a lot of time with him." If Lily chose to work overnight, Zhuo Jingren would silently work next to her, too. If she decided to sleep, then he would also stop working and go to sleep with her. Of course, sex- ehem- making love was always there as well.
"Then… why don't you take a vacation with him? Lily, you are what? Twenty-seven? You just got married and you're burying yourself in work again."
"In my defense, this is a very crucial part of our company. We need to establish a solid footing in Hong Kong and I want it done this year," Lily answered. Her eyes were still closed. She was actually suffering from a terrible headache at the moment. She could only blame it on the fact that she'd been suffering from a lack of sleep for almost three days now.
Another sigh echoed inside the room. Cathy wanted to say that with Lily's husband around, their footing was already solid here in Hong Kong, but she knew how much Lily hated depending on others. "As someone who has been divorced twice, I think I have the qualification to tell you this," Cathy started. "Your husband dotes on you so much. Don't ignore him. Spend more time with each other, without thinking of money or business. Have you even had a proper honeymoon? On a beach? Just the two of you, without thinking about other people?"
At this point, Lily had already opened her eyes and was staring at Cathy.
"From the look on your face, I would assume that you've not had a honeymoon," Cathy continued. "Alright, I think I have said enough. You are an adult. I know you're already aware of what you are doing. However, all I can say is that a relationship is just like a plant. You needed to nurture it to keep it alive."
"I understand," Lily nodded. "Thank you for the advice. After the soft opening, I will go ahead and take a vacation. Of course, I need to find someone capable of running the company first," she answered with a little smile on her face. When was the last time that Lily ever stopped thinking about making more money? Uhhh… never. She never stopped thinking about money and schemes. Her brain has worked overtime while she thought of ways to expand her business. She had even forgotten that she and Zhuo Jingren had never have a proper honeymoon. Of course, a honeymoon was very different from the hot sex that they had almost every day.
Lily once again closed her eyes as she thought of the things that she still needed to accomplish and then she instantly furrowed her brows at the thought of her unaccomplished tasks. It seems that thinking about it only made her headache worse, ah. Lily's thoughts were interrupted when someone knocked on the door and opened it without even waiting for Lily's response.
"President, we have an emergency."
Lily instantly opened her eyes and looked at Mr. Han who- judging from his flushed cheeks- was obviously in a hurry to reach her office. "What's wrong?" she asked.
"I wanted to call you but I decided to talk about this matter in person," he blurted before he eyed Cathy. Cathy had been Lilian and Lily's subordinate for a long time now, so Mr. Han just continued, "Mr. Wang breached our contract. He is willing to pay millions just to cancel it. I think… I think we will have a hard time getting into Mainland China's market this year."
