Lily instantly narrowed her eyes at Zhang Yifei as she took another step towards her; their faces just inches away from each other. "So you wanted the Qin Family to suffer," she stated. "What about my family? Zhang Yifei? Did you just unintentionally ruin mine to have what you want?"
"Everyone in the Qin Family does not deserve to be happy," she answered in a low voice that Lily does not recognize. "You and your brother… your father and mother and everyone with the Qin bloodline deserve to suffer."
"You are pathetic," Lily sneered. "If you think you have won just because you were able to use someone around me… then you are wrong," she said. She had truly underestimated Zhang Yifei. "Your first mistake is thinking that I care about Qin Yuanfeng. Your second .."
"Please… spare me the bullshit," Zhang Yifei interrupted Lily. "If you don't care about him then you wouldn't have given him a chance. You wouldn't have let him into your turf and even asked your men to treat him well. You lost Lily. And you know that."
Seeing Lily just smile at her, Zhang Yifei continued to taunt her. "Qin Yuanfeng is unstable. He is the easiest one to control. If you take away his candy, he will surely lash out on you. He might even kill you. Can you imagine that? A brother and a sister… trying to kill each other. That would be tragic…. Right?"
"And you think I don't have the guts to kill him?" Lily scoffed. Everything around them seemed to have blurred as they locked on to each other, ignoring everyone surrounding them. "He is but a stranger to me. A stranger with the same face."
"Really Lily? Do you have the heart to kill the only blood related person that you have left?" She faked a look of horror, making everyone think that Lily said something horrible to her. "Would you be able to carry the guilt of killing your brother forever?"
Zhang Yifei's plan was actually simple- very simple. In fact, she came up with this one with her eyes closed. Was it her fault that Lily is weak? Was it her fault that everyone around her was easy to manipulate? No… She was smart and she was born to succeed in everything that she does. Including… killing people. "Admit it. You lost… and you will never win against me. If you do that… I might pity you and not kill you and your husband."
"How bold," Lily noted before she chuckled. "If you think you won… then think again. You might be hallucinating."
"You are really…"
However, Zhang Yifei's words were interrupted when she saw Qin Hao approached them with an angry expression on his face. "How dare you!" he yelled at Lily as he raised his hand to slap her.
However, before his hand could even touch Lily's cheeks, someone suddenly grabbed his hand, and threw him to the floor. "Try it one more time and I will burn you alive with everyone that you love," a cold voice echoed, making Lily flinched in surprise. This was her first time seeing her own husband's anger.
"Are you alright?" Zhuo Jingren turned around and looked at Lily.
"I am. Thank you for protecting me." Though she was sure that she could have avoided that slap, she was still thankful at his gesture. "Is it done?" she asked.
"It is," he nodded. "We should go now."
Lily did not answer him. Instead she looked at Zhang Yifei as her lips lifted into a sinister smile. "You surprised me," she said. "However… let me tell you something. Overconfidence will ruin you just like how it will ruin your plans today."
It was Zhang Yifei's turn to narrow her eyes at Lily. Why would Qin Hao try to slap Lily? Why was he so angry? The only thing that could make Qin Hao lashed out like that is…if anything happened to his business and his daughter. What could have happened?
As her mind was racing to analyze Lily's move, Lily was once again looking at her like an eagle staring at its prey. "I will crush you. This is just a taste of the things that I can do. The Qin Group will end up in my hands and I promise you… you cannot do anything about it. You will only watch as I burn your castle and ruin everything that you had created. Your family will go down with you. And you won't even realize that you are supposed to fight back until you are already bleeding to death."
"This is my promise," she added, her eyes were not showing any emotion as she continued to stare at Zhang Yifei's eyes.
"Yifei… Yifei… stay away from this woman." It was Qin Hao. He just stood up and he instantly tried to protect her from Lily and Zhuo Jingren.
"What happened?" Zhang Yifei asked, her voice was gentle and her face full of confusion.
"They blow up three of our mines," he stated as he glared at Lily. "You will pay for this."
His words seemed to echoed inside Zhang Yifei's mind. They bombed the mines? But… she already inform her people about this. She was sure that they were able to stop the bombs! She looked at Lily's smiling face then to Qin Hao's angry one. "How did it happen? Our security?" she asked.
"Diamond mines. They destroyed our diamond mines," he murmured, enough for Zhang Yifei to hear.
Diamond mines? How did Lily know about those mines? Not even the government knows about it! The Qin Family were known for its mines and precious stones on Mainland China. But not many people know that they also deal with diamonds and even have their own mines.
Then Zhang Yifei's narrowed eyes as realization hit her. Lily… Lily must have given Qin Yuanfeng the wrong information! She must have done it to trap him. She stared at Lily as she let out a cursed inwardly.
"What experience?" Lily smiled at them, her words were directed to Zhang Yifei. "Fool," she uttered as she looked at Qin Hao.
"I heard that you and your daughter are really good at business. I hope… you can deal with the damages and effects of this… accident," Lily said before she turned her head to look at her father. "As for you… You are coming with me. You are already useless… I'm sure it wouldn't be a loss for the Qin Family to lose you at times like this. Isn't that right… Uncle Qin?" She looked at Qin Hao before letting out another scoff as she signaled her men to take Qin Chuan with them.
Then she looked at Zhang Yifei again and flashed her a smile. She would love to see how Qin Hao will handle their company without Qin Chuan.
"I will see you again, Aunt Yifei. We should play Chess the next time we see each other." Lily's laughter echoed as she strutted her way out of the Qin Residence, giving the atmosphere a sinister vibe.
"To Yuanfeng," Zhuo Jingren instantly ordered the driver to drive them towards Bei Tian's base. Then he called someone to make sure that Qin Chuan would be comfortable for the night. "Here," he handed another set of file to Lily. "Bei Tian is already restraining him."
"Hmmm…" Lily only nodded, an unfathomable expression was on her face. She was not able to see Zhang Yifei's calculations as she was too engrossed in micro managing a little bit of everything around her. She underestimated her ruthlessness and ability to manipulate people with certain strategies that suited her.
"Did the accident of the mines injure anyone?" she asked.
"Two guards received minor injuries. Aside from that, none."
"Good," Lily nodded before she leaned her head on Zhuo Jingren's shoulders. "It will be a long night," she uttered.
