"Second brother… I've already told you they have enough evidence to request the death penalty. Stop struggling… you are only hurting yourself." Qin Chuan's provocation only made Qin Hao angrier and caused him to struggle even more. How could he allow Qin Chuan to mock him like this?
"Mr. Qin, if you are innocent then please just leave with the police officers. Please… let's not create any more scandals," suggested one of the board members. While they haven't heard the whole story, they also did not want the company to be implicated in Qin Hao's crimes. "Please Mr. Qin. This is for the company."
"You- Are you really going to let this imbecile do this to me?"
Before any of the board members could answer him, Qin Chuan's scoff rang out. He gestured for the police to make Qin Hao return to his seat. "The way you called me an imbecile is just insulting yourself. If I am an imbecile, then what are you?"
"Sh*t up! How dare you frame…"
"Tsk… Tsk… Qin Hao, stop being shameless. Do you really dare to discuss this in front of me?" Qin Chuan taunted with a smile. "We all know that you are useless in front of me. You were useless then and you are useless now. Do you really want to play this game with me?"
Qin Hao stared intently at his brother. He could feel his insides churning from unreleased aggression. He was sure that if he said one more thing, Qin Chuan would reveal how he was the one devising and implementing all of the projects while Qin Hao greedily took credit for them. Qin Hao gnashed his teeth before snarling, "You are such a despicable person!"
"Coming from you… despicable doesn't sound bad at all," Qin Chuan countered before leaning towards his brother. "Now… you sit right there and watch."
"What are you going to do?"
In response, Qin Chuan patted his brother's shoulders and gave him a fake smile. "Reclaiming what's mine," he said as his gaze turned to the group of men and women before them.
"She was raped?" Lily's brows instantly furrowed when she heard Bei Tian's report. Initially Lily was planning to go to work today, but because she wanted to visit Zhang Yifei, she cancelled her original plans.
"Yes, and her face was badly burned too," Bei Tian said. "The police also found some unsigned documents for the transfer of her shares to Qin Hao. Everything is going rather well. The news has gone viral and a lot of women are already screaming for death penalty."
"That man deserves to suffer," Lily concurred. Rape? Really? Qin Hao was truly a ruthless human being. Lily could only shake her head. "Is Zhang Yifei still alive though?"
"She is. She was conscious when the police found her. But as I said… she was badly ruined. Man… I know I am ruthless but I have never done that to my enemies, no matter how evil they were. I believe skinning them alive is still the best choice possible…"
"Since she is conscious… I will go and see her," Lily interrupted Bei Tian as she looked towards the silent Zhuo Jingren. "Are you coming with me?"
"Hmmm," Zhuo Jingren nodded as he rose from his seat. Because HongKong is quite far from Shaghai, they chose to go to the mainland and stay in a hotel first before going to the hospital. Moreover, Lily already decided to postpone her original plan of going back to work..
Of course, Bei Tian decided to go with them.
"I never expected Qin Hao to be this… inhumane," Lily said, her gaze focused on the passing scenery.
"Qin Hao's intellect is low. Such behavior is actually to be expected of a man like him," Zhuo Jingren said. "This type of man exists in every country in the world. They are dumb as a rock, but their egos convince them that they far more intelligent and crafty than they are in reality. It's extremely easy to seduce them and manipulate them. The best way to do this is to stroke their ego and make it bloat even more."
"Hmmm… I know but… really? Rape? Didn't he ever love her? They used to sleep together, right? They were in a relationship for ten years?" Lily turned her attention to Zhuo Jingren. How could people go so low?
Lily hated Zhang Yifei. That was a fact, and Lily will hate her for a long time to come but the thought of having Zhang Yifei raped had never crossed her mind.
"Nineteen," Bei Tian suddenly interrupted them. "Aiyo… Why are you even thinking that this would matter to a man like him? She was smarter than him, so he wanted to humiliate her and make her feel that he was somehow superior to her."
Lily nodded at Bei Tian's words. Qin Hao was obviously self-centered, and the fact that Zhang Yifei was able to control him for years was an enormous blow to his ego.
"Plus, Qin Hao wanted her signature," Zhuo Jingren said as he let Lily put her head on his shoulder. "He knew that Qin Chuan might come, and with your backing he would get the board member's approval immediately. The only weapon that Qin Hao could use was to hold the most shares in the company."
"Hmm,." Lily agreed. While she didn't like the fact that Zhang Yifei was raped, she was not angry about it either. She wouldn't pretend that she truly felt that Zhang Yifei deserved everything that Qin Hao did to her because she was a ruthless woman who had no qualms about killing the innocent and manipulating people.
Eventually, someone like Qin Hao was bound to hurt Zhang Yifei because of her schemes. "How far are we from the hospital?" she asked.
"Less than an hour," replied Zhuo Jingren. "Close your eyes and relax. I will let you know once we are there."
"Alright," Lily said with a sigh as she felt Zhuo Jingren's fingers entwine with hers. She felt him squeeze her hand, silently sending her his support. She would see Zhang Yifei soon… She would see the woman who took everything away from her.
