"No. I don't think we should do it," Qin Liwei's voice startled his father.
"Why? He told me he found a witness. We could..."
"No. Lily will reveal those photos to the media. Let's wait. I have my ways to get those photos from her," Qin Liwei uttered, confidence apparent in his eyes.
Meanwhile, Qin Fei was busy with her new endeavor. As the only female in the Xuan Household, Qin Fei had been taking care of the household since Yang Lina was already in prison. Aside from this, she also decided to follow her original plan and start her own fashion line.
"I want you to change the fabric of that purple dress so that it's softer and more comfortable. This dress is designed for pregnant women after all. Comfort should be the priority and when they wear my label, I want them to feel beautiful and empowered," she instructed the group of men and women in front of her. "Also... just like my drawings... I want bright colors. This will be our brand's unique selling point. We won't make clothes that are white, black, nude or any of those boring colors. I want our customers to see rainbows the moment they enter our store," she beamed at her own words.
In response, the group of men and women nodded, their faces were serious. They would not want to disappoint their new boss.
"Alright. You can go now." Qin Fei smiled before she walked back towards her desk. She then used her tablet to make a video call to the nanny of her son. She was all smiles as she watched her son from the video call.
"Madam... I am sorry to disturb you. I saw someone deliver this to the front desk." Her newly hired secretary brought a rectangular box that looked almost like a shoebox.
"Who is it from?" she asked.
The secretary examined the box for a while before she shook her head. "I don't see any names. Would you like me to open it first before I give it to you just in case? What if it's something crazy from one of your fans?" The secretary was aware that Qin Fei used to be an actress and she's also the wife of Xuan Hui, a very big name in the film industry.
"No. It's alright." Qin Fei took the box and instructed her secretary to leave. She then examined it again and furrowed her brows. While Qin Fei had stayed away from the limelight after giving birth, there were still people who would send her gifts and fan letters every now and then. She tried to shake the box and then realized that it was a little heavy. Maybe it was another gift? She thought.
She then got a pair of scissors from her drawer and used it to open the packaging. After making sure that the plastic wrap and tape are gone, Qin Fei opened the box and couldn't stop herself from letting out a surprised gasp.
Her eyes widened at the first photo that she saw. It was Xuan Hui... kissing a girl at the backseat of a car. Qin Fei's face lost all its color, a mixture of anger and sadness flashed in her eyes. She wanted to scream but she could only feel her throat tightening and her heart pounding against her ribcage.
With shaking hands, Qin Fei poured out the contents of the box on her table. Then she instantly froze. She sat there... staring at the photos, tens of them - Xuan Hui kissing Tang Biyu, Tang Biyu smilingly serving a cup of coffee to Xuan Hui.
"Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!" Qin Fei's shrill voice interrupted the deafening silence in her office. It reverberated throughout the room. "How dare you! How dare you! How dare you!" she said while tearing the photos that she could get ahold of. "How dare you! Ahhhhhh!" She slammed her hand on her table before she rose from her seat, her veins were popping out at her temples.. She will kill that woman. She will kill Tang Biyu!
Meanwhile, Xuan Hui's face was red, his eyes were bulging, threatening to pop out of its socket anytime. He clenched his jaws. "What do you mean you are pregnant? I only touched you once! You can't be pregnant!"
"Hui..." Tang Biyu let out a small sob. While she is aware that she was not pregnant, Tang Biyu still could not stop herself from lying to gauge his feelings for her. She wanted Xuan Hui look at her as more than someone whom he could sleep with whenever he was angry or when Qin Fei was throwing another tantrum. Though she was only a mistress, she wanted to have a small right to ask for Xuan Hui's time and bearing his child would give her this right. She figured that once Xuan Hui accepts her, she could find ways to make herself pregnant. "I did not expect this too… but… you were not using any protection at that time. So I… What should I do now?"
"Kill it," Xuan Hui hissed after a few minutes of silence. "I want you to kill it."
Tang Biyu instantly widened her eyes. "You- You will kill our baby?" She 'instinctively' placed her hands on her stomach, in a protective stance. On the outside, Tang Biyu really looked like she was protecting her belly, her eyes were red as tears streamed down her cheeks. She looked truly pitiful. However, this was not enough to convince Xuan Hui. Xuan Hui suddenly walked towards her and clutched her arms.
"Hui… you are hurting me." Tang Biyu's face became even more pitiful as Xuan Hui's hold tightened.
"You are not going to ruin my family!" he spat. "Go and have a doctor to kill that. I don't want a child from you."
"Hui. How could you say that? This is your child. How could you have it killed? We did this together, we should be responsible for our actions." Tang Biyu took a step back as she tried to shake away from Xuan Hui's painful grip. "If you don't want to raise my child… then…. I will do it alone." She lifted her head and stared bravely at Xuan Hui.
"CHILD?" a yell interrupted them, making both Xuan Hui and Tang Biyu flinch. "You got this woman pregnant?" Qin Fei strode towards Tang Biyu and stood in front of her cousin.
"YOU DARE TRY TO STEAL WHAT IS MINE?"
