"To the nearest hospital," Lily said after Daohu started the car.
"What are we doing to the hospital? Are you ill or something?" Zhou Lanying said as she opened the window of the car. She started waving at the people on the streets.
"Can you make her sleep?" Lily said in a low voice towards Yang Jing. In response, the latter nodded and touched something around Zhou Lanying's (neck). In an instant, the latter fell back, her eyes close.
"She was drugged." Yang Jing said sternly. He and Daohu was the one accompanying Lily while Yang Mi stayed with Yang Sen to inform the Zhou's the Zhou Lanying is ill. "That Champagne…"
"I know." Lily chose not to drink anything from the party because she knew that someone laced her drink with something that will embarrass her. Lily was cautious this time, and she wanted to make sure that her night would not have some tragic ending. "Fool." She uttered as she eyed the woman who was sleeping soundly beside her.
Who would drink someone else's drink even if they knew that it was laced with poison? If that person is not called foolish then what would be the best thing that would describe her? Lily narrowed her eyes at Zhou Lanying, unaware of the woman's true goal.
Of course, Lily does not trust her. Why would she try to save Lily? Both of them knew that Lily was fully capable of defending herself from some drugged wine. "Stupid!" Lily hissed, irritation laced her eyes as she dialed Zhuo Jingren's phone.
"Your cousin is crazy." She uttered the moment her husband answered his phone.
"I know. I am coming to get you."
"You should…" Lily started telling Zhuo Jingren about everything that happened. She knew that her husband went straight to his private plane right after the police released him just an hour ago.
"Hmmm…Alright. I will land in less than two hours. I will see you at the hospital."
"Don't. Just wait for me at the hotel or your Villa." Lily said.
"Your presence will only make Zhou Lanying scared. I want to talk to her when she wakes up." Lily wanted to talk to Zhou Huifang, but she chose not to say it right now. She would not want Zhuo Jingren to worry.
"I understand. I will see you then. I love you."
"I love you," Lily said as she ended the call. The lines in between her brows were gone. She shifted her gaze away from Zhou Lanying as she waited for them to reach the hospital.
After a couple of minutes, they arrived at the hospital and the doctors treated Zhou Lanying immediately.
"What the hell happened?" It was Zhou Huifang. He glared at Lily as he barged into the door. Then he shifted his gaze towards her sister on the bed. "What did you do to her?"
Lily chose not to answer him, he tilted her head towards Yang Jing who was standing next to him.
"She was drugged." Yang Jing answered.
"Did you do this? You- How dare you!? Why are you ignoring me? You think I will let this pass?" Zhou Huifang clenched his fist and tried to approach Lily but Daohu blocked his way. His tall stature towering over him.
"I don't talk stupid," Lily said. "Your sister tried to save me because she's stupid."
Zhou Huifang stood frozen after he heard Lily's words. He stared at Daohu wide-eyed as if he was trying to digest what Lily told him. Then he remembered how one of his men informed him that her sister drank the wine that was supposed to be for Lily and then she started to act boldly.
"You- How can you call her stupid for saving you?" He pushed Daohu out of his way. "My sister saved you and this is what you say while she was in the hospital bed suffering from the thing that was intended for you?"
Lily didn't answer him. She rested her elbow on the arm of the chair and propped her chin on the back of her palm. She then looked at the man standing in front of him. "We are even. If I did not take her to the hospital, she would have embarrassed herself and your prestigious family."
Zhou Huifang instantly narrowed his eyes at Lily. What kind of cold woman would even say such a thing to the person who saved her?
"I don't owe her anything." Lily rose from her chair. "I was waiting for you to arrive so you can pass that message to her. Tell her that one of these days, her stupidity will kill her."
"You-" Zhou Huifang was speechless as he watched Lily walk towards the door. "If the Zhou Family will know that you are involved in this matter, they will…"
"They don't need to." Lily stopped, her back still on him as she looked over her shoulders. "I am coming for them. I am here to inform you that they will pay for what they owed to my husband soon. And I... I will personally come and collect."
Zhou Huifang stared at Lily, unable to say a word. She watched as the two men followed Lily out of the room, leaving him alone with his sister. For some reason, Zhou Lanying's words echoed in his mind. Murderers? Was it possible that it was true? Was it possible that Zhuo Jingren's grandfather was the true heir of the Zhuo Family and not his grandfather?
If that is true then… what about their dead brother? Did their grandfather killed him too? Zhou Huifang furrowed his brows as he approached his sister. The doctor told him that Zhou Lanying was drugged and if Lily did not take her immediately to the hospital, she could easily experience an overdose.
It would be easy to assume that Lily was just pretending and that she was just playing with everyone. After all, she was a known schemer. What if she was the one who planted the drug so someone would try to save her? But… this theory does not make any sense at all.
If Lily was the one responsible for drugging Zhou Lanying then… why would she bring her to the hospital after drinking the champagne? And how would she know that Zhou Lanying would drink the wine in her stead?
