Lily narrowed her eyes at Qin Yuanfeng, but she chose not to say anything. She knew he was lying. For some reason, she could feel some… anger in his eyes. She instantly wonder if this anger was directed to her mother or maybe even her.
"Well… why don't you tell me your story? Then I will tell you what happened seven years ago and everything about our mother?" Lily asked. She was still not sure if he was a friend or a foe. However, she would not waste this opportunity to know more about the Qin Family.
"Boring question. If you want to know more about the Qin Family, then I can help you, but..." Qin Yuanfeng made a deliberate pause as he stared at Lily. "Nothing about my past will help you in any way." He answered, his jaws clenched.
This earned another raised eyebrow from Lily. "Zhang Yifei is coming to Hong Kong. She must have known that I am here in Hong Kong," he added.
"Maybe she wanted to bring you back to China?" Lily asked. If this man was indeed a genius in the computer, then it would be hard to find him if they chose to use modern technology. Moreover, based on his appearance now and the other time that she saw him, Lily was sure that he did something to disguise himself.
Qin Yuanfeng turned silent at her words. After a few seconds, he added, "I want to help you."
"With what?" Lily asked her brother.
"I can help you with whatever it is that you want." Qin Yuanfeng answered. "Don't you want to get revenge on the people who separated our parents? Don't you want to make them suffer? The people who schemed against our mother and father are out there living the best of their lives. Are you going to allow this to happen?"
"No," Lily answered, the smile on her face was long gone. Bec and Qin Chuan were separated? This was new to her. "I don't want revenge."
"What kind of daughter are you? Aren't you even going to make them feel what our parents felt? When our father lost his ability to walk because of a scheme. I know that you don't know him, but… he never did touch that Zhang Yifei. Not even a hug. I can assure you this."
"Qin Yuanfeng… let me asked you something." Lily said as she crossed her legs. "Why are you trying to rile me up? What are your intentions? Why do you want to make me angry? Do you want to manipulate me? What for?" Obviously, Lily's question came as a surprise to Qin Yuanfeng. However, instead of getting angry, he let out a deep laugh of amusement. His eyes were in a crescent as he shook his head.
"You are smart."
"I am not. You just underestimated me." She countered.
"The most dangerous people are those who downgrade their own intelligence." He answered. Seeing Lily just smiled at him, he continued, "You are indeed my sister."
His reaction instantly earned a scoffed from Zhuo Jingren. "Fool." He uttered.
"This fool can hack into your computer, loverboy. Don't you ever forget that."Qin Yuafeng quipped.
"This lover boy can kill you in seconds. Don't ever forget that."
"Oh? Is that a challenge?" Qin Yuanfeng rose from his seat. "Why don't you give it a try?"
"You think too highly of yourself. You think you stand a chance against me?" Zhuo Jingren also rose from his seat. He stood in front of Qin Yuanfeng. He sneered before he continued. "Weak."
And this was Qin Yuanfeng's undoing. He released a fist towards Zhuo Jingren's jaw however, the latter was quick enough to shift his weight and avoid the punch. "Is that all you've got? You can't even hit a strand of my hair."
The commotion instantly made Lily rose from her seat. With wide eyes, she stared at the duo, who were now exchanging some blows with each other. What is their problem? Lily furrowed her brows. Irritation was apparent in her eyes. She walked towards the kitchen and grabbed two chef's knives of the same size and color and brought it to the living room.
The smell of testosterone was all over the air as Lily saw Daohu enter and was about to join the fight. "Daohu. Go get two first aid kit." She ordered, leaving the latter with no choice but to comply. The madam's words were to be followed all the time, this was what Zhuo Jingren told all of them.
"Here," Lily said as she spread her arms, one knife on each hand. Seeing the two stopped moving and stared at her, she continued. "You want to kill each other? Then please go ahead." She put one knife to Qin Yuanfeng's hands and the other to Zhuo Jingren.
"I will be waiting outside with the first aid kit. Please come see me once you are already wounded."
"What happens if the wound is too big?" Qin Yuanfeng dared to ask.
Lily stared at him intently, a small blood was already on his lips, whereas Zhuo Jingren's face was still flawless. The result of this fight was already too obvious. "Hospital." She answered shortly. "Go on. Kill each other. Just don't let me see it. I hate blood." She said calmly before walking out of the living room.
"Madam… what if Mr. Qin will hurt the President?" this was the first question that Daohu asked Lily. He had already called Bei Tian, so he is confident that Mr. Qin won't be able to run away after this, but he was still worried that he would hurt President Zhuo.
"No, he won't," Lily answered with confidence. "I trust him." She said with a small smile on her face. Would she give them a knife if she does not know that Zhuo Jingren would come out victorious? He would not risk his life like that.
Moreover, she had witnessed Zhuo Jingren's combat ability every time he would spar with Daohu or even Bei Tian as a part of his work out. He was knowledgeable in both Karate and Brazilian Jiujitsu. While Lily was not familiar with the kind of martial arts that Qin Yuanfeng knew, she still trusted her husband.
Additionally, Lily knew that Qin Yuanfeng would be too scared to attack Zhuo Jingren now. He knew that the risk of him ending up in a hospital is too big. And being in the hospital is akin to calling Zhang Yifei and letting her know that he was in Hong Kong. This would ruin everything that he had planned.
Of course, this scenario is only applicable if Qin Yuanfeng was indeed here without the knowledge of Zhang Yifei. Still, Lily could not see any reason for Qin Yuanfeng to attack Zhuo Jingren anymore. Surely, he would not be that dumb to realize this.
Just as Lily expected, Zhuo Jingren walked out of the room unscathed. He had a smile on his face as he handed two clean chef's knife to Daohu. Then he looked at Lily. "Your plan worked. You can talk to him now." He said before he gave Lily a small kiss on the forehead. "Don't forget, always to put your hand on your Taser. In case he still tries to do something to you." He reminded as he walked to the next room with Daohu in tow.
Lily only smiled at her husband, an unfathomable emotion flashed in her eyes. To Lily, everything is a test- a test of who is more cunning.
