"Lily, it is your brother's wake. I don't think this is the right time for you to show your superiority." Tang Lingyun's voice was soft, her face was pale as she stood next to her husband. "I know that you hate our family, but please… can you please respect your brother? For once. Even in his death." Tears were streaming down her cheeks as she bit her lips.
On the outside, Tang Lingyun looked extremely pitiful. However, on the inside, she was boiling with rage. She knew that Qin Mo had done something to Lily. She was not a fool, she had been observing her husband for the past days now and she can feel his panic, his fear towards Lily. An innocent man would not do something like that.
However, Tang Lingyun was useless. Her family had been obliterated so no one could back her up. Because of this, she could not even ask her own husband about her suspicions. This and Qin Liwei's death only made her more and more frustrated.
At this point in time, Tang Lingyun already got tired of blaming Lily for everything. Tang Lingyun understood that if Lily really wanted to acquire everything that the Qin Family have, it would be very easy for her to do that. This was not because of her husband, but because of her capability alone.
"What nonsense are you talking about? Stop begging her." Qin Mo held Tang Lingyun's arms. "Can't you see? She is devious. She does not respect us anymore. Begging is useless!"
"Well…. I am not here to disrespect the dead, nor kill anyone of you so you can stop treating me like the antagonist to your perfect story." Lily's mocking response only made Tang Lingyun feel more scared. After everything that she had gone through, it had become obvious to her that Lily does not really like killing the people who offended her. "Now… Now… First, let's talk about the Qin Industries shall we?"
"Are you crazy? This is not the time to talk about that!" Xuan Hui, who had been standing next to his wife, said. He walked towards Lily, eyes stern, hoping that somehow it will intimidate her. "Stop causing chaos. If you want to talk about business, then at least wait until everything is over."
"Mr. Xuan… you are comical. Can't you see? Everything here is over. Tsk… tsk… I always thought that you are a smart man, Xuan Hui. But you have disappointed me over and over again." Lily shook her head and shifted her gaze away from Xuan Hui. "First, the family business is mine. As the major stockholder…"
"What the hell is she talking about?" Qin Fei asked in agitation. She looked at her father then towards her husband but the two men only shook their head in response, telling her not to utter another word that will only show her ignorance.
"Well… let me say it in the simplest words that I could find." Lily said as she gestured at her bodyguard, not a second later, the man placed a chair behind Lily. "First, Qin Industries owe me. Second, a lot of shareholders sold their shares to me. Making me the biggest shareholder in your com-, Ops! I mean my company."
"I'm guessing your father and husband already know this. After all, they were… smart businessmen." She added while sending a provocative smile at Xuan Hui.
"You tricked them!" Xuan Hui hissed. "They sold the stocks to a company that is not under your name! This is not legal at all!"
"That is true. You and your husband tricked us and offered for a loan. It was something that we couldn't refuse!" Qin Mo added as he remembered how Lily had actually hidden the fact that she owns the company that once saved them from bankruptcy. "That was illegal!" he added.
"So?" Lily raised an eyebrow. "If you can prove that it is illegal, then what can you do about it?" Seeing everyone's baffled expression, Lily continued. "Mr. Xuan… I don't think this is the time for you to involve yourself in our business no?"
"I owned big shares in the Qin Industries. Did you really think that I will just let you ruin our company?" Xuan Hui argued.
"Well… I am a businesswoman Mr. Xuan. I don't do things that will make me lose profits. So… I decided to make you the new CEO of the Qin Industries. I mean… we still need a meeting but I am pretty confident that I can make it happen. What do you say, Mr. Xuan? Are you willing to manage my company?"
Xuan Hui stared at Lily, his eyed bulged in disbelief from Lily's shamelessness. Lily had been acting superior since she walked inside the Qin Estate. Now she also wanted him to manage the Qin Industries like a slave. Does Lily think that she could just make people do everything that she wanted because just because she can?
"Since you agreed then we are all good. The Qins still have their shares which is… minute compared to what I have. So, they don't really have the right to say anything against me. From now on, the company will be under Facci Group and I will appoint Mr. Xuan as the manager. Everything will be handled by my lawyer and will take effect after my dear brother's burial." She beamed.
"Yes, Mr. Qin? Do you have anything else to say before I continue?"
"You-You…. You are heartless!"
"Am I?" she asked. "If I am heartless, then what are you?" she narrowed her eyes at the man in front of her. She slowly turned her head towards her security, "Send everyone out of this estate. Except for the Qins."
"You cannot do that! What are you planning to do?" Qin Mo asked.
"Lily! Are you crazy? This is illegal! Someone should go call the police!" Qin Fei panicked as she looked at the group of men that were already following Lily's orders.
"Call the police and what? Report that a murderer is here?" Lily said as she gave Qin Fei a meaningful look. "Ah…. You just reminded me… let me call the police myself. After all… both of us know that a murderer is indeed in this house, acting like a bullied sheep. Am I right, Mrs. Xuan?"
I've been away for so long! I got sick after going to China. It was bronchitis and everyone in my family got it. I was soooo nervous because of the current outbreak. T.T. Fortunately, me and my family is doing well now.
Have you heard of Kobe Bryant's death? I am so sad about it. I used to argue with my hubby. I think that he is really good while hubby think that he can't match MJ. I don't know. I am heartbroken. May his and his daughter's soul rest in peace.
