Zhuo Jingren woke up with a smile on his face. He instantly moved a little closer to Lily and breathed in her scent. After a couple of minutes, Zhuo Jingren checked the time and decided it was time for him to prepare breakfast.
After getting out of bed, Zhuo Jingren checked his phone and emails before he went to the kitchen to start cooking. However, he was interrupted when his phone rang.
"It's early in the morning and you're already grumpy?" Zhuo Jingren heard Bei Tian ask before he chuckled. "Why so grumpy, President Zhuo? Didn't you get what you wanted last night?"
"What do you want? You are disturbing me," said Zhuo Jingren.
"Ha… are you cooking breakfast? I am coming up. Open the door."
"Open up. I'm hungry."
"I said no."
"I have information for the boss."
"I am your boss. You can give it to me later."
"Nah… not you. I meant the hidden boss," Bei Tian laughed again. "Open the door."
Zhuo Jingren helplessly shook his head. "Alright. No breakfast. Just give the file."
"Stingy. I need some food or I won't be able to function efficiently."
Zhuo Jingren didn't bother replying to Bei Tian as he was already at the door. He opened it and without a word, Bei Tian strode inside without even greeting him. "Where is the food?" he asked as he walked directly to the kitchen. "Huh? You are still cooking? I thought it was already done?"
"Come and help me," Zhuo Jingren said. "I am not cooking anything for you. You have to make something for yourself."
"Mean. You have been slave driving me and you can't even give me food?" Bei Tian asked, his tone light as he walked towards the cupboard and put on a purple apron. His moves clearly indicated that he had been doing this for a long time now.
"What do you have for me?" Zhuo Jingren asked as he started beating the eggs.
"Lily's brother," Bei Tian said. "That poor man is mentally ill."
"He is a genius," Zhuo Jingren said.
"He was abused when he was young. Not sexually, but people often whipped him. How could those people do that to a child?' he dramatically widened his eyes before he continued. "He grew up lonely. While he did practice Kung Fu and other martial arts, he really does not have any close friends. I mean… he had some attitude problems and would always get into brawls and fights."
"Hmmm…" Zhuo Jingren nodded.
"That was until a year ago," Bei Tian continued. "He had a girlfriend."
"Oh? Where is she now?"
"No idea. She disappeared just a few months after they began dating. However, her family never searched for her and neither did Qin Yuanfeng. He acted as if she never disappeared and just continued with his life as if nothing happened."
"So you think that the Qin Family killed her? And now he is here to find an ally?"
"Man… Why do you always have to prove that you are smarter than me?" Bei Tian sighef. "You are right. Maybe it was not really that hard to analyze?" he thought out loud before he continued. "I was unable to confirm the threats that he was making about but I was truly surprised to find out that the brains behind the mining and jewelry of Qin Group is actually Qin Chuan's. I have no solid proof yet as everything that I have for now is all circumstantial, but if we add everything up, I could maybe say 40% of what Qin Yuanfeng said was true."
"Hmmm… have you talked to Qin Yuanfeng?"
"Why do you ask? I actually met him when I was going up. He was wearing very weird white hair. It's either he colored his hair or he was wearing a wig. So how did you know that I met him?"
"You don't understand percentages. and you were talking about them. That is totally not your style," Zhuo Jingren said.
"Hah? Did I say something about percentages? I don't remember at all," he said before he chuckled. "However, knowing Qin Yuanfeng's story made me feel so lucky that I grew up in an orphanage. I used to think that I was quite unlucky but… man these people have money and yet they were being abused and trying to kill each other."
"We are lucky," Zhuo Jingren said as he started making omelets. Though they did not grow up in luxury, they still had a lot of people who took care of them. They were happy and had friends- people who were not only close to them because of their influence and money.
"You know… I used to see Qin Jinghua as really lucky. She came from a rich family and wore nice clothes. She also attended a private school, but I realize she was no different from us unlucky people in the orphanage. Ah… the world is indeed fair in making all of our lives unfair."
"You have become smarter," Lily's voice echoed, making the two men turn their heads towards her. "What are you making?" she tiptoed and kissed Zhuo Jingren on the cheek.
"Omelets," he answered.
"Smells yummy," she smiled before looking at Bei Tian. "Good Morning Master Bei."
In response, Bei Tian rolled his eyes and did not utter a word as he handed her a file. "I found something about your twin."
"Well… thank you. Why don't you stay for breakfast?" she asked.
"Of course, I will." Bei Tian said as he also turned his attention to his own omelet.
Lily smiled at Bei Tian before she started reading the files that the latter handed to her. Her face turned serious as she continued to read through the pages. She had always thought that she had suffered so much at the hands of Tang Lingyun. Who would have thought that Qin Yuanfeng would experience these things as well?
Meanwhile, Tang Lingyun was staring at Qin Mo who was still unconscious on the hospital bed next to hers. Tears continue to stream down her cheeks as she thought of the things that happened yesterday. The accident, the pain and shock was something that she had never experienced before. She let out another sobbed when she thought of Qin Mo's amputated right leg. He would not be able to walk normally again.
While the doctor assured her and Qin Liwei that there are artificial ways to make Qin Mo walk, it would still be difficult as his spine also needed some operation. The said operation may affect Qin Mo's lower body functions.
However, for some reason, Tang Lingyun also felt a little liberated because of what happened. She does not understand if it was because Qin Mo won't be able to ask her to sleep with someone again or if it was because after this accident, Tang Lingyun would be the one taking care of her husband. Either way, Tang Lingyin really felt that this accident was also a blessing in some way.
"Mother! Mother! Oh my god I was so worried…" Qin Fei's voice interrupted Tang LIngyun's thought as she suddenly strode inside the room with tears all over her face. Last night, her son had a fever and she could not leave him so she did not have the chance to come here and see her parents. Good thing that the fever subsided just this morning.
