"The Qin Industries is not under my name." Lily walk passed Qin Liwei and sat on her chair. She then signaled Yang Mi to leave them.
"But we have a debt and you know that we can't pay it. I… I mean not right now." Qin Liwei stuttered but when he remembered the promises that he received from that man if he ruined Lily and Zhuo Jingren's relationship, he instantly calmed down and walked towards Lily's table. "Well aren't you even going to asked about the proof that I hold against your man?"
"Are you going to show it to me?" Lily mused.
"Then… don't mind it. You can go now."
"I thought you want to know everything about your husband? Or are you doing this because you are interested in his money once he is gone?" Qin Liwei sneered. Seven years ago, Lily had always wanted to marry Xuan Hui because of money. Seven years later, Lily's record in the business industry is still making her look like the old greedy Lily that she was.
"Hmmm… I would love to." She smiled. "Now that I think about it…It would be good to have the Zhuo Capital under Facci Group."
"…" Disbelief flashed in Qin Liwei's eyes as he stared at Lily. Slowly, he took a seat across her as he reminded himself that he was here because he wanted to bring this woman down. He composed himself before he gritted his teeth. Lily was truly shameless! He had not met anyone as shameless as her!
"So? Would you rather leave? Or are you going to let me know the information that you know?"
Qin Liwei stared at Lily's smile, which made him even more irritated. How could she smile like this when he was the one with the advantages? "Alright then… first, your husband was involved in the Yakuza and killed a lot of people seven years ago. Man, women and children were killed in retaliation of his father's death."
"Hmmm… that is insidious." Lily noted. "How sure are you that he was the one who killed them and not some psychopathic clown?"
"He was the one who ordered it and we have witnesses. People who received the order. Now… If I release this news. I am not sure what will the government of Japan do. This would also ruin your husband's reputation."
"I agree." Lily nodded. "So what are you planning to do?"
"Well… I was planning to…" Qin Liwei did not continue the words that he was about to say. He widened his eyes at the woman in front of him. "Why are you asking me that!?" he hissed. He was about to fall into this woman's trap! Qin Liwei wanted to cursed, maybe curse Lily in her face. However, he decided to remain calm to achieve his mission. He shifted his tone and continued, "You see… we all know that Japan has a very strong economic ties with Hong Kong. So once this evidence reached their ears.. coupled with the media. I'm sure you already know what will happen by then, right?"
He gave her a smug smile, his eyes seemed to glimmer as she stared at her. Finally… with the help of that man. He would be able to defeat Lily and even Zhuo Jingren.
"So? Are you going to leave the Qin Industry alone now?" he asked. Of course, he knows that Lily would immediately give him what he wanted.
"You know… Liwei. I am not sure if you are stupid or overly stupid. I mean… you came in here. Marching with that smug smile in your face and blackmail me. Is this the best that you could do?" she asked. "The only reason why I have not deal with you yet is because I was too busy and lately… I have decided to move on with my life."
"And yet… here you are. Itching to die, challenging me over and over again." Lily shook her head. "The Qin Family in Hong Kong… will suffer once you release that news. Then the Qin Industries will end up with me. I will ruin your sister, her family. Your father, mother and you."
"You only say that now because I have all the evidence that I can use against you and your man! Do you think you can scare me? Do you think I am a fool?" Seeing Lily underestimate him repeatedly is really making Qin Liwei even more determine to destroy her. He wanted to wipe off that smile in Lily's face and make her realize how wrong it was for her to underestimate him.
"I am not scaring you and yes… I think you are a fool."
"You-" Qin Liwei could not continue her words when Lily throw a brown envelope towards him. He unconsciously grabbed the file.
"That is not the original. I have kept many copies and videos. If you think you can just strode in here and blackmail me, then… think again. You can try to ruin Zhuo Jingren. In fact, I would dare you to try. Give him a reason to end your life. Oh… why don't you file a case now? try to ruin him... then watch as your family fall into chaos." She challenged. Reverse psychology usually works with the dumb ones, like Qin Liwei.
Qin Liwei did not utter a word as he sent her another glare. He opened the enveloped and instantly froze at its contents. The envelop is filled with images. One of Xuan Hui with his secretary, their cousin from the Tang Family. One of their mother kissing an old, obese man whom he recognized as a famous producer in the entertainment industry.
Another photo is of Qin Liwei snorting some cocaine, which was taken three years ago before he stopped using drugs in the US. Qin Liwei's throat seemed to dried out. He started tearing one photo followed by another. His eyes were wide, glaring and murderous.
"Where did you get this?" he demanded. "Where the hell did you get this, Qin Jinghua? Answer me!?"
"Oh… brother… should I call you brother? Maybe cousin? But we are relatives aren't we? We are not cousins." Lily's lips lifted into a smile.
