"Is she still alive?" Qin Fei rose from her seat as she looked at Yan Guang, Xuan Hui's bodyguard. She bit her lips and eyed Xuan Hui.
"She is, but if we delay bringing her to the hospital, she won't last that long." Yan Guang answered, his eyes were also directed to Xuan Hui as he waited for the latter's instruction. "Master, I already checked the CCTV and the only person who heard the commotion earlier is one of your secretaries and one of our security personnel. I already asked our men to detain them. I am waiting for your instructions."
Qin Fei held her breath as thick silence permeated the air. A while ago, she had gone overboard and hit Tang Biyu's head using one of Xuan Hui's glass plaque. It was an impulse, or not. Alright, who was she kidding? She really wanted to hurt the woman so badly. In fact, she wanted to kill her. Whatever happened had been her intention all along. Still, in front of Xuan Hui, she needed to act as if she was regretful.
Once again, Qin Fei lowered her gaze while biting her lips, her face pale as sweat trickled down her forehead.
"Clean the place. I don't want any evidence left here," Xuan Hui said after a few minutes of silence. He clenched his jaw and shoved his hand in his pocket. "Tell the witness Qin Fei and I fought about something personal. Fire them and give them a big separation pay. Make them leave the country."
"What about… Miss Tang?" Yan Guang asked, his face stern.
"Dispose her," Xuan Hui answered as he eyed Qin Fei's pitiful expression. He then instructed Yan Guang to call their men as he held Qin Fei in his arms. Xuan Hui thought that everything was his fault. Everything that happened was the product of his weakness. It was only right for him to deal with the aftermath.
The moment Xuan Hui's arms held her, Qin Fei instantly broke down into tears. While this was all an act, she still could not help but feel a little fear. She murdered someone! That is something that will stay with her forever. Like a stain in her soul. In response, Xuan Hui hugged her as he patted her head.
"Sh-Shhh… It's alright now. Don't worry about it. Tang Biyu is already alone. She does not have the Tang Family to back her up. No one will look for her once she disappears."
"Hui… I killed someone." A mixture of disbelief and grief laced Qin Fei's tone. "I am a murderer. I killed someone."
"It's okay. It was my fault." Xuan Hui uttered. If worse comes to worst, he would not hesitate to say that he was the one who killed Tang Biyu just to save Qin Fei. This was the least that he could do to compensate for the heartache that he had caused his wife. Of course, he was also confident that no one would find out about the matter. After all, Yan Guang was a very neat employee. An evil glint flashed into Xuan Hui's eyes as he thought of his earlier instruction to Yan Guang.
Xuan Hui does not want Qin Fei to look at him in a different light so he made sure to give Yan Guang some clues of the things that he wanted to do with the people who heard the commotion earlier. "Let's go?" he said, "Our son misses you already." He give Qin Fei a gentle smile.
In response, Qin Fei nodded meekly.
The couple then walked out of his office and used the elevator that will direct them to Xuan Hui's car.
The next day, Sky City
"Huh?" Lily stopped typing on her laptop after Zhuo Jingren informed her of what happened in Xuan Hui's office. "How did you know that?"
Zhuo Jingren only gave her a sly smile before he held Lily's bag. "Let's go talk in the car." In response, Lily nodded as she closed her laptop and followed Zhuo Jingren out of their house.
"Who is it?" Lily asked the moment the car engine started running. Daohu was driving so while Zhuo Jingren and Lily were sitting at the back of the car. "Or is it some super secret?"
"What do you mean?"
"How many people do you have in the Xuan Family?" she asked. "Did Qin Fei killed the woman on her own will? Was she drugged?"
"It was her own will." Zhuo Jingren answered. "I don't force people to kill other people. You sent the photos, she exploded and attacked Tang Biyu. That's the whole story."
Lily pursed her lips in response, her gaze was straight towards Zhuo Jingren. Then she slowly nodded and shifted her gaze out of the car. "Was it Xuan Hui's bodyguard?" she spoke after a few minutes.
"I knew you could guess it."
"The only people that would know this are the ones who clean up the body. I can only think of one person that would do that." Lily thought about her meeting with one of Xuan Hui's people on the day that she went to the doughnut shop. A small smile escaped her lips.
"Hmmm… When you decided to send the photo I instantly contacted him. Not personally of course. Your move surprised me. Why attack them now?" Lily always said that she liked to bid her time. But what happened was truly a surprise to Zhuo Jingren. Sometimes he really could not understand what his wife was thinking. This should be the reason why women are deemed as unpredictable creatures by some articles online. He smiled at his own thoughts.
"Someone is using Qin Liwei to attack me or you. I am not sure yet. But… I want Xuan Hui to be occupied so he could not help them. Qin Fei is his weakness. Because of this, Qin Fei would act weak and guilty, she would ask him for more time. Thus… Xuan Hui would not have the time to help Qin Mo and Qin Liwei."
"Smart! Smart!" Zhuo Jingren beamed as he lifted his chin. A gesture that reminded Lily of a proud peacock. Seeing this, Lily was not able to stop herself from smiling.
