When Qin Chuan heard Zhuo Jingren's words, he instantly frowned at him. Does Lily know that she married a person like this? He opened his mouth, wanting to rebut Zhuo Jingren's words. "Killing him doesn't make everything right," he uttered, unable to stop himself.
Zhuo Jingren did not respond to his words as he turned his attention to the smoke arising from his coffee. Its lingering aroma assaulting his nose, prompting him to close his eyes as he thought about everything that Lily went through. "Your daughter was bullied while growing up. She was labelled as shameless, her mother a whore for climbing into Qin Mo's bed. In her early twenties, she lost our child, her mother and the family that she knew. She almost went crazy before her grandmother rescued her. Everything that had happened since she was born was orchestrated by that man."
Slowly, Zhuo Jingren opened his eyes and stared at Qin Chuan. "As the person who loved her for over fifteen years… are you telling me that I should just step back and let the culprit of her misery go?"
"Killing will not make any past deeds right…" Zhuo Jingren added, his gaze sharp almost piercing as he looked at the man in front of him. "And so is forgiveness."

"For our shopping app, I would like to change the color of the logo. Make it… red. I want something that immediately attracts the attention of the people. Something that they wouldn't miss the moment that they opened their phones." Lily said while staring at her laptop. "Aside from that everything else is good. Since our opening will be in Christmas… there should be a big show. I want a concert. Something grand for the opening of the new Harmony Isle."
"I understand." Mr Beau nodded, his eyes were glued unto his own laptop as he noted everything that Lily said.
"Also… I want the complete list of the names of the people that we will invite for this show." Lily said.
"Yes, president. I will have it on your table before this day ends."
"Very good. I believe we are done for today. Ladies and gents. You can go now." Lily did not wait for any response as she walked out of the conference room, her face was serious while asking Yang Mi of her next meeting.
"President. You have a Skype call scheduled with Mr. Tan from the logistics department of our…"
"I remember. Call Jingren. Tell him I will be late for dinner. Tell me the situation about our Westward terminals." Westward Terminals is another subsidiary of Facci Group that focused on ports and freights. During the weekends, Lily received a lot of calls about the trouble that they encountered in their cargo ports in Malaysia. Since she was away with Zhuo Jingren, Lily could not deal with the matter and asked Mr. Rossi to take over instead.
"We have another collision. Two collisions in three days… I dont think it is a coincidence. I already asked our men to review everything on the ports around the time of the accidents we should get a response soon." Yang Mi answered as she tried to catch up to Lily's steps.
"Good." In porting business, sabotage and terrorism are not actually a new threat. In fact, they will encounter those every now and then. "You said ports? I thought it was only in Malaysia?"
"No… One is in Malaysia and the other two is in South America."
"Alright. I will talk to Mr. Tan… there is no such a thing as coincidences. We should prepare for a counter." Lily mumbled as she walked towards her office. However, to her surprise someone else is already sitting in the couch. Her face instantly lost all of its expression. "Who let you in?"
"Is that how you greet your brother?" Qin Liwei a who was languidly sitting at the couch rose and walked towards Lily.
"Who let you in?" Lily repeated as she looked at Yang Mi over her shoulders. "Call the security. I …"
"Hold on… now let's be polite here. I am not here to become your enemy sister." Qin Liwei said as he stood in front of Lily, his height towering over him. "I am here because I have something that you need."
"And that is?" She asked.
"Why don't you take a seat first? I will tell you everything once we are already relaxed and in the right man to talk about things."
"I have no time to deal with your bullshit. Leave now or I will have the security drag you out." She countered, irritation apparent in her eyes. She instantly made a mental note to fire the person who let this Qin Liwei in her office.
"Your husband. I was lucky enough to know everything about him… my dear sister? Ah… I should not call you sister but maybe cousin? Still not good… we are relatives not cousin. Maybe I should just call you Lily? Right?"
"Who told you that I wanted to know everything about him?" she furrowed her brows, wondering who gave Qin Liwei the guts to act this confident in front of her. "I am giving you three seconds to leave. Or I will…"
"Come on Lily." Qin Liwei said. "Aren't you even interested to know how many people your husband murdered? How he asked his men to massacre a family back in Japan? I mean… If that does not interest you. I don't know what will."
"What if it doesn't" Lily challenged. Really? She already knows all these things.
"Well… what if I tell you that I have proof enough to make him rot in prison?" Qin Liwei lifted an eyebrow, making Lily narrowed her eyes at him.
"What do you want?" Lily's already bad mood had become even worse when she heard the latter's statement. Blackmail? 'Is this man really that dumb?' Lily could not help but asked herself.
"For starters… I want the Qin Industry back under my name." Qin Liwei beamed, victory apparent in his eyes. As expected of a Queen she will always try to protect her King.
