Manipulation had always been Lily's strongest point. If someone would ask her to choose between a gun and a file full of personal and relevant information, she would undoubtedly choose the file. Of course, this was partly because her aim was bad and she was sure that the recoil from the gun would bruise her arms, still this was not the point. The point is, Lily can use the file to manipulate someone, psychological warfare. Something that she can use even when her eyes were closed.
Lily only smiled at everyone's reaction. She wanted to watch Qin Mo suffer inwardly until he contacts his backer. Lily was sure that the man would ask for some help, some assistance from the person who planned this all. She was certain that Qin Mo's brain would not be capable of having such a plan.
"Lies! That is a lie!" Qin Mo said, his eyes wide full of rage as he glared at Lily.
"Alright… I will leave. Remember what I said about the house. And Oh… Mr. Xuan? As someone who is under me, someone whom I trust is going to train you soon. This would be better for the company." She gave them a dashing smile full of victory before turning around. She walked out of the mansion just as the police arrived.
Lily was serious about Qin Fei. She had actually provided some evidence that would point the authorities to Qin Fei and Xuan Hui as the prime suspect for Tang Biyu's disappearance. The evidence might be enough to make them go to prison, but Lily knew that Xuan Hui could still do something to turn the situation around. Of course, it would still depend on his capability and resourcefulness.
While Lily was not planning to let this go, she would also enjoy a good chase. But this does not mean that she would still give them the chance to retaliate. "Lawyer Yang… if Qin Fei and Xuan Hui go to prison… the child. Who will have the custody?" she asked after a few minutes of silence. They are already on their way back to Sky City.
"The patriarch of the Xuan Family is still around…"
"He is a criminal. Someone with questionable behavior." Lily interrupted. While she wanted Qin Fei and Xuan Hui to suffer, she would not want to involve their child. Lily smiled at her own thoughts. She shook her head as she thought of her own hypocrisy.
How could she not involve their child? The only person who will take the brunt of what she was doing is the younger generation. Qin Fei and Xuan Hui's child was destined to be affected by the moment that he was born. Lily bit her lips as an idea came into her mind. "I want the child." She uttered, making the lawyer looked at her.
"That- That would be hard considering that there are still…"
"I want the child…. Do everything that you can to fight for custody. All of the child's living close relatives are criminals or unstable." She interrupted the lawyer, her face serious. She had always wanted to have a child herself. While she plans to get pregnant after their wedding, Lily would also like to adopt a child. In fact, she had been thinking about this for a long time now.
"Pardon my words, Miss Lily but… the child… What if the child will know that you were the one who caused the demise of his parents?" Lawyer Yang swallowed his saliva as he chastised himself for speaking his mind. However, this was the question that everyone would want to ask Lily once she adopted the child. He stared at Lily, observing the changes in her reaction.
"I will tell him the truth about his parents," Lily said. "It wasn't my fault that they killed someone. I can only hope that he will understand." She made a deliberate pause as she pursed her lips. "I know what you are thinking Lawyer Yang and I thank you for the concern. The cycle of revenge is difficult to stop. However… we should also think that a child's characteristics are molded from the people who raised him or her first before the social environment will affect the child. If he grows up in an environment of criminals, he would become one of them, "she let out a sigh. "You get my point."
In response, the lawyer nodded. "I have worked with your grandmother ye for a long time. I know that you understood what I want to say. An adoption… is a crucial matter. But… I will do my best."
Lily smiled before she shifted her gaze out of the car. Now that the Qin Family had been taken cared of, she will focus on the Zhou Family and the Lee Family. Next, Lily and Zhuo Jingren will go and see the Lee's together.
Her thoughts were interrupted when her phone vibrated. Lily stared at the text message before a small smile escaped her lips. It was from Fernando and the latter said that he just succeeded in his proposal. He said he would take Li Shanshan back to see his ill father.
At least, something good happened. After the text message, Lily received a call from an unfamiliar number. She frowned before she answered the call.
"Miss Lily… it's Lin Yu Yan from the LSC. I got your number from Jingren. Is it possible to schedule a site visit for the construction? Plus, some prominent people in both Beijing and Shanghai also wanted to meet you."
Lily raised an eyebrow. "Please schedule it to my Secretary, Miss Lin. I am not a very idle person. I can't just leave my company for a coffee and tea with you."
Silence followed Lily's words. It was obvious that her direct words surprised Lin Yu Yan. Lily had been acting casually in the past that her blunt words totally surprised her. "Miss Lily… I- I hope that I am not disturbing you. I just want to…"
"You are disturbing me." Lily interrupted her. "It is already late and I still have to wake up early tomorrow. You can call my secretary tomorrow and schedule a meeting." She said before ending the call. The thought that Lin Yu Yan was casually calling Zhou Jingren by his first name is irritating Lily. When had she become so jealous?
