Qin Hao had a very dark look on his face as he had his arms folded on his chest. As he continued to listen to his lawyer talking to the police, his face became darker. Zhang Yifei is really gutsy to file a complaint of sexual assault against him.
"I did not touch her," he said. "She tried to seduce me many times but I didn't touch her. She is my brother's wife! I would not touch her! Never! That woman…"
"Mr. Qin, its okay. I can handle this," his lawyer interrupted him. "There are no evidence against us. We are free to go."
Qin Hao scoffed instantly which echoed inside the interrogation room. Just as he expected, this was all that woman's scheme to get him into the police station. By now, the media should be waiting outside of this station to interview him. Cunning bitch, he cursed inwardly.
After a few more minutes, the police officer allowed them to leave after signing some paperwork.
"Mr. Qin, a few media personnel are waiting for us outside but I have already arranged for our men to block them," said Mr. Cheng, the Qin Family's lawyer.
"Good." Qin Hao nodded before he texted one of his men. Zhang Yifei will only cause more damage if he let her run free. It was pretty obvious that the woman's intelligence was above his. Moreover, she was also very resourceful and her ability to manipulate people is top notch. He needed to get rid of her as fast as possible.
After a few seconds, Qin Hao received a text of confirmation which instantly lit up his face. "Alright. Tell me once we are ready to go," he uttered towards his lawyer, while he tried to look calm and stern on the outside. He had just instructed his men to pick up Zhang Yifei and they told him that they will execute his order immediately. Tonight, he will have a good talk with that woman.
When Lily found out that Qin Hao had taken Zhang Yifei, she couldn't help but knit her brows. That man is truly stupid for doing this just a few days after the Old Man's funeral. What was he thinking? However, Lily had another matter to deal with right now, so she just silently instructed Secretary Go to leave her.
"When I received the news that you are injured, I instantly rushed here to see you! How could you do this to me? Lily?" Fernando glared at her. He clenched his jaw as his face slowly reddened from the anger boiling inside him.
"To be honest, I never thought of informing you about it since I thought you had already forgotten our friendship. I never expected to see you here as well," she said frankly, her face devoid of any emotions. The people that she hated the most in these world were dumb-ass men like this one in front of her.
"Why are you being harsh on me? I was merely absent for a few weeks and you are already acting like a stranger to me."
"The only reason why I let you inside my house is because I still have investments in your company," Lily said, which made Fernando widened his eyes even more.
"Can you at least let me explain?"
"Why are you explaining to me? Am I your girlfriend or something?" Lily sarcastically countered. "You should explain yourself to the woman that you have been sleeping with and not me."
"Come on Lily. Let's not be childish… I was away because of a very important matter which I couldn't inform Shanshan or you about it." How could Fernando not understand Lily's words. He knew that Lily is very well informed about things, so it is normal for her to know that he has been sleeping with Li Shanshan or anything that happened between them.
"Oh… is this another excuse for being a jerk?" Lily said as she stared hard at Fernando.
"My father is in a coma," Fernando blurted. "I was legally adopted and I am the sole heir of his assets. Imagine my surprise when a lot of people suddenly turned up to talk about his will when he was only in a coma?"
"And I did not hear about this because?" Lily still asked even though she could already guess the answer.
"I was doing my best to hide this from the media or GC Jewels will suffer. Plus I was so busy handling the company and all the people who wanted a piece of his wealth," he said grimly. "This is the reason why I didn't tell Shanshan anything. I don't want to involve her in this mess or worse, turning her into a target for those people. I mean… you and her are practically the only family I have."
Lily didn't answer Fernando as she pursed her lips at the man. It was a fact that Fernando was adopted and this was not a secret to the fashion world. While the man was low key and did not have any scandals, it's not surprising that there would be people who are jealous of a talented man like him. "Funny how you guys are already discussing his will while he is still alive," Lily noted.
"Apparently my adoptive father has a very… prominent and high-end client as well. And I have been working my ass off to pacify them as they yelled at me for updates about my father's health. When Li Shanshan told me that she didn't want to be in a relationship with me, it was also the same time that I received a call informing me about my father's heart attack. I packed my bags and flew to my father immediately and well… I thought I would also give her some time to think things through," he said.
Lily's lips instantly lifted into a fake smile. "You two are only causing trouble for each other. For f*cks sake be an adult and stop running around and giving each other time to think things through! What?! Are you teenagers?" Her words were spoken softly, contrary to its meaning. In fact to some, Lily's words sounded sweet. Coupled with her iconic smile on her face, Fernando was not able to stop himself from shivering. "Don't tell me your brains cannot handle a mature conversation? Did I miss something here? Are you two some kids who just got out of the nursery?"
"Alright… that was a bit harsh." Fernando instantly held his hand as if he was trying to defend himself. "But I think you are right." He rose from his seat and eyed Lily. "I heard she is still in Hong Kong. I will talk to her and settle things with her. I will bring her to Berlin to see my father and marry her there. I don't want to wait around or second guess our relationship anymore as it is honestly too tiring both emotionally and mentally. I like her so it is not…"
"Hold on!" Lily also rose from her seat and walked towards him. "You said you will marry her? Why are you doing this? Because you are afraid I will pull out my shares in your company?"
"What? No! I don't think you are that terrible."
"That was my initial plan," Lily interjected before she smiled sweetly. "And yes, I am that terrible."
"…" Do you really have to be so blunt? Fernando asked himself inwardly, before shaking his head. "I am tired of running around. I will marry her whenever she is ready and she can make all the major decisions when it comes to our wedding."
In response Lily only rolled her eyes. "Send me an invitation. I will sponsor the wedding if you can convince her to marry you. "
"I will remember that!" Fernando walked towards the door and waved his hand. "And Lily?"
"I'm glad that you are safe."
