Qin Mo paled as he heard Lily's words. He remembered how he talked to that man about framing Zhuo Jingren. Was this Lily's retaliation? Letting him watched as she framed Qin Fei in front of him? Isn't this just absolutely cruel?
Of course, In Qin Mo's mind, Lily was too cruel for doing this. Yet, he failed to see that he was the one who provoked Lily first.
He watched as Lily slowly lowered herself next to Qin Fei. She uttered some words that only Qin Fei could hear as she smiled brightly at her sister's crying state. The thought of Lily threatening Qin Fei made him fumed. "Lily… you stay away from my daughter!" he demanded, fear flashed through his eyes. What if Lily had told Qin Fei that this was all his fault? What if Lily's plan involved making Qin Fei hate him for the rest of their miserable lives?
In response, Lily only tilted her head towards him. The smile on her face never faltered as she stood next to the trembling Qin Fei. "If you wanted to blame someone… blame your foolishness. The people backing you can't help you now. You should have thought of this before agreeing to their terms. Sacrificing your son's life just to frame my husband? Too low Mr. Qin… Too low."
"What are you talking about? I did not…" he widened his eyes as the realization hit him. "Stop framing me!"
"What? Your son was already useless after the accident. He won't have an heir and his body was crippled. His foolish nature is a liability. It's always better to… just kill him, right?"
"I did not…"
However, Qin Mo was not able to finish his words as Tang Lingyun slapped him. "You monster!" she screamed before she started attacking him. "You killed our son, didn't you!? You killed him!"
"I didn't… Tang Lingyun! Stop hitting me! I said I didn't kill him!" Qin Mo tried to protect himself from Tang Lingyun's claws, but it was all futile. He was already in a wheelchair and some of his injuries were not yet healed. Moreover, Tang Lingyun's rage made her more emotional and unpredictable, prompting her not to listen to any of Qin Mo's words.
In the end, Xuan Hui had to interfere as he held Tang Lingyun, preventing her from scratching Qin Mo's face. "You are an animal! A monster! You are no longer human!" Tang Lingyun's shriek echoed inside the whole house as she struggled, trying her best to reach for her husband. "I will kill you! How dare you! Qin Mo… I will kill you!"
"Mother… shhh… can't you see? Lily was manipulating us." Xuan Hui's attempt to calm Tang Lingyun was useless. First, Tang Lingyun knew that Lily's words about Qin Liwei being a cripple was true. He could no longer produce an heir because of the accident. Second, he also had an injury that will hinder his ability to walk in the future. Qin Liwei was also dumb. He was easily manipulated and was very impulsive. Lily's words about him being a liability was right.
As a mother, Tang Lingyun knows his son. She knew that he was pretty useless and for some reason, he felt that Qin Mo was very capable of killing a useless person. She had always known that Qin Mo was heartless. He was ruthless and he only values the benefits that he could get. What if someone offered to sacrifice Qin Liwei so they could frame Zhuo Jingren? In exhange for some benefits, Qin Mo would absolutely do it.
Tang Lingyun struggled even harder as her mind swirled with suspicion.
"Mother… calm down. Calm down." It was Qin Fei. After seeing her mother's crazed state, she stood up and run to try to help Xuan Hui. She hugged her mother, trying to console her, calm her. Half of Qin Fei knew that this was useless. Tang Lingyun had been unstable after Qin Liwei's death. Qin Fei knew this. She can see it in her mother's eyes. The stress, sadness, and anxiety must have taken its toll on her.
Qin Fei hugged her mother tighter, her emotions rampaging as she thought of what Lily told her earlier.
Lily had actually asked her to kill herself so she could adopt her son and raised him to hate Qin Fei. Tears streamed down Qin Fei's cheeks as she thought of Lily's smiling face. A flash of regret crossed her eyes. Lily was using reverse psychology. Lily used her son to threaten her so she won't kill herself. Qin Fei was not that dumb. She knew that Lily wanted her to suffer.
Qin Fei knew that Lily was capable of doing this. It would be easy for Lily to frame Xuan Hui so she could get their son. Then Lily will raise their son… the thought itself already sent a hard lump in her throat. She would never… not in a million years, let Lily held her son.
At this point, she already understood that Lily wanted her to suffer as Qin Mo watched.
Determination flashed in Qin Fei's eyes as she felt her mother calm down in her arms. She patted her mother's back as she thought of the events that Lily was so angry about. A while ago, Lily also told her that this was all Qin Mo's fault. And that if she wanted to blame someone, then she could only blame her father for killing Lily's child.
Because of that, Qin Fei understood why Lily had been so cruel. Lily wanted to retaliate. She wanted Qin Mo to watch as she made everyone that he cared for suffer.
"Mother… shhh… Lily is lying. She is manipulating us. She wanted us to fight against each other." Qin Fei uttered in a cold, low tone.
Tang Lingyun responded with a sob.
"Aww… isn't this sad? Qin Mo killed his son, sacrificing him so he could get the favor of the people who hated my husband. But in the end… tsk." Lily dramatically shook her head before she sighed.
"Poor Liwei…" she added.
"I did not kill my son!" Qin Mo's voice boomed. "You- You are lying!"
Lily responded with a shrug. Qin Mo was right. She was only lying. However…. Who would believe him now? "I have evidence that would suggest that you orchestrated his death." She said while watching Qin Mo's pale face. Of course, this is another lie that Lily said to manipulate Tang Lingyun and Qin Fei's emotion.
