"Zhang Yifei is scary smart," Lily noted before taking a seat across from Zhuo Jingren. It has been three days since news about her accident saturated the media. Since then, she has been staying in Sky City. Of course, Zhuo Jingren also skipped work to 'take care of his injured wife'.
He was lucky that he had capable VP's as well as Bei Tian to take over in his absence.
"However, her mind is her weakness. I'm sure she could not stop overthinking, especially now that Qin Hao has started avoiding her."
"Qin Hao paid a visit to the warehouse of Zhang Yifei's brother this morning," Zhuo Jingren said. "Seeing that it was already burned to the ground, he would only assume that it was Zhang Yifei's way of hiding the truth from everyone. He might even think that Zhang Yifei killed her own brother to silence everyone that is involved in her schemes."
"Very smart move." Lily nodded in satisfaction. To be honest, her original plans and Zhuo Jingren's were actually not that different. In fact, their plans have the same outcome: Zhang Yifei being manipulated and ending up alone. The only problem in Lily's plan is that it requires time and patience.
With this in mind, Lily opened her laptop and put it just across Zhuo Jingren's own computer.
"You are working?" he asked, interest filled his eyes.
"Of course!" she beamed before a knock was heard on the door. Without waiting for them to answer, Yang Mi came in with a bunch of folders in her hand. "I am just injured; not dead…. I can surely sign a document or two, right?" she gave him a mischievous wink.
Seeing her start to open the files, Zhuo Jingren could only shake his head in helplessness. He was happy that she was the one who offered to fake an accident because he thought this would be Lily's chance to just relax and not think about her business for a few days. He thought she would have a mini-vacation in their own home! Who would have thought that she would have no qualms in bringing her work in their house?
"Mr. Rossi is actually doing a good job of helping out with the company, so why don't you just take a step back for a few days… until you 'recuperate' completely."
"I can't sleep without thinking about the stuff happening to the company while I'm away." Lily replied before she started to ask Yang Mi about the company. What else can Lily say? Earning money had been her release for a long time now. It had been ingrained in her bones that it would be hard to not think about it even for a second.
"The Force acquisition that you planned for the Wang Construction Company in Mainland China is almost on its final stages. Mr. Wang had been threatening to sue us but it was useless. Mr. Rossi and Mr. Han are actually quite good at handling things. Mr. Rossi said that we could have the company under us by the first week of November." Yang Mi said, her chin a little high, showing how proud she was to have worked with such a capable team under Lily.
"Really? I was not expecting it to go these smoothly." Lily raised an eyebrow before she looked at Zhuo Jingren. "This is the reason why I can't just leave the company for a few days. We are working on acquiring a lot of companies. I don't want to miss anything. But I'm sure you understand that, right?" Lily asked, she actually did not miss Zhuo Jingren's helpless expression a while ago.
"Hmmm… Of course. " Zhuo Jingren nodded before he shook his head. Facci Group had been known in the West because of how they would force acquire companies, completely surprising everyone with their devious strategies. Everyone actually said that this would eventually become the downfall of the Facci Group. That Lily's greedy nature is her weakness. However, Lily had proven them time and time again how she was able to increase the company's profits by leaps and bounds after a year of acquiring it.
So knowing that Lily had been working on acquiring a lot of companies in the Far East is actually not a surprise to him.
Lily's voice woke him up from his stupor as he lifted his head and stared at her.
"Why would they want to collaborate with us? They are in the medical field. I don't think we have an industry that is in common with them?" Lily asked. Maybe they wanted to invite her construction company for a bidding?
"They actually sent some proposals to Mr. Beau for our Harmony Isle branch in Singapore. I have included the proposal in the folders. It is the fourth one." Yang Mi said.
"Oh. I will review it later. How about the shares that I wanted to acquire from the Qin Group in Mainland China?" she asked. Of course, Lily would want to buy some shares in the Qin Group, after all, she already promised George a collaboration in their diamond trade.
"It was actually quite hard. Cathy was having a hard time buying shares. However, after the accident of the old man, a lot of people chose to sell their shares as they felt that the company will sink without him. Moreover, a large investment company from South Korea agreed to sell their shares to us at a good price. Cathy is already working on everything. I believe she will contact you anytime this week for an update." Yang Mi answered.
"South Korea?" Lily said out loud before she focused her attention back to the files in front of her. "Alright. I will sign these then I will forward it to you once I'm done. Please give me a cup of coffee. Thank you." She said, her attention was glued to the papers in front of her. After making sure that Yang Mi already left, Lily lifted her head and looked at Zhuo Jingren.
"What's wrong? Why are you staring at me like that?" she asked.
"I was just thinking about what would happen to the Qin Family if they knew that Qin Wuyang was just playing them like dispensable chess pieces." Zhuo Jingren answered before he shifted his gaze away from her.
"Liar." Lily instantly noted. "What are you thinking?" she asked, interest filled her eyes as she intently stared at his handsome face.
