However, contrary to Lily's prediction, Qin Mo mentioned nothing about Zhuo Jingren nor his possible involvement to Qin Liwei's accident in the next few days. Instead, he never interacted with any media personnel and avoided having any interview. Of course, people from the media respected this matter and eventually stopped talking about Qin Liwei's accident.
This was an unexpected response and Lily could only shake her head in the end. Maybe Qin Mo learned something because of what happened to Zhang Yifei and the Qin Family in Shanghai. Or maybe a smart backer finally gave him some advice about their stupid way of thinking. Either way, Lily does not want to focus on them alone.
After all, she's got a business to run and a grand wedding to plan.
Because of this, Lily took a step back and watch in the sidelines. She decided to not do a thing and asked her people to observe everyone in the Qin Family. She knew that someone was backing Qin Liwei and she wanted to see what brilliant thing would that backer come up soon.
Lily and Zhuo Jingren continued their busy schedules as they focused on their business and preparing for their upcoming wedding.
Zhuo Jingren wanted to give Lily a grand wedding. And he wanted to announce this in the world. This made both of their schedule even more hectic than that of the usual one. Still, the couple would try to find time to spend with each other.
"A wedding?" Isaac Lee scrunched his brows as he listened to the explanation of his man. "And they will do it… January? Do you think she is pregnant?"
"We have not confirmed this. But… a few weekends ago, they went to see an obstetrician in Japan. We have confirmed anything yet. But… there is a big possibility that she is indeed pregnant."
The old man turned silent while stroking his chin. He fell into a deep contemplation. "Was this the same time that Adrian went to Japan and offended Zhuo Jingren?"
"Hmmm… the arrogance of that child is the reason why I didn't make him the heir of my empire." Isaac thought out loud. "What about the people who were trying to dig up some information about Zhuo Jingren? Did you found out who wanted to know about his past?"
"Well… it seems that the Zhou Family in China has enemies capable of hiding their tracks and… they have already spotted Zhuo Jingren." The man answered. "Chairman… may I voice out my opinion about this matter?"
"Yes. Please do… Allen we are family after all."
"Chairman… I think it's high time that you introduce yourself to Mr. Zhuo Jingren. I don't think he would still refuse a meeting from the Chairman of the Lee Group. Mr. Jingren is a very smart man. There should be a reason why he refused a partnership with us. Both he and his wife made it clear that they do not want to associate themselves with us. I think that Mr. Zhuo Jingren already knows about us and his mother."
"There is even a possibility that he already knew about him coming from the Zhou Family in mainland China. That should be the reason why he refused any pictures and interviews from the media. He does not want to attract anyone's attention, especially the Zhous and their enemies." The man named Allen added.
"Hmmm… you actually have a point. Having Thomas contact both Zhuo Jingren and Lily Zhuo is futile. Maybe it is indeed time for me to introduce myself to my grandson and protect him this time." Isaac Lee nodded, an earnest expression flashed in his face but it quickly disappeared as he furrowed his brows again.
"You mentioned that the Zhous in China have enemies?"
"Yes, Chairman…. All these years, they have offended many people in their industry. I could not find out the identity of the people who tried to dig something about Mr. Zhuo Jingren's past. I am not even sure if it was someone from the Zhou Family. All I know is that… they wanted to know more about him."
"I see." The old man nodded, his gaze pensive before he looked at the smiling photo of the woman in his hands. He made a mistake in the past and he would make sure not to do it again with his grandson. "Alright… check out if we could arrange a meeting with Zhuo Jingren. Try if you can find his locations in the next few weeks. I would prefer a 'coincidental meeting'. "
In one of the restaurants in Northern Heights, Hong Kong
"This place is perfect for real estate investments." Jack smiled at Lily. His gaze eyes were at the beautiful garden that was one of the main attractions of this restaurant. "Aren't you going to order something for lunch?"
"I have a flight to mainland China in five hours. I don't really have the time to talk about real estate over lunch." Lily went straight to the point. This was the day that she was scheduled to fly to Beijing for the bidding that she will attend with Mr. Han tomorrow. "How was George?"
Just a few hours ago, Jack called Lily and asked for a meeting. He said he had something very important to inform Lily. Initially, Lily refused to see him as she does not have the time to do so. But when the latter, told her that it has something to do with George situation, Lily immediately changed her mind.
"Not in the mood, eh?" Jack said, the same smile plastered on his face before he slowly turned serious. "Well then… I guess there is no reason for me to delay telling you this information as well."
"Someone attacked George one week ago." Jack said. "And everyone was suspecting your brother."
Lily lifted an eyebrow at Jack, "Really? Is George alright? Did he sustain some fatal injuries?"
"He is fine… but still unconscious. The culprit hit his head. We are not sure when he will wake up." Jack said his gaze darkening. "I have decided to closely monitor your brother for now. However… once I get a proof that he was the one responsible then… you should already know what will happen to him, right?"
Lily crossed her arms across her chest. Her face devoid of any expression. Qin Yuanfeng … a man with a peculiar and complicated personality that was caused by his upbringing. He might be many things by Lily was sure that being this stupid is not one of those.
