"Mr. Zhuo… Mr. Zhuo…" Akane's sobs irritated Lily. She furrowed her brows and looked at the woman who was reaching towards Zhuo Jingren and was about to touch him.
"Don't contaminate him!" she managed to say in Japanese, surprising everyone including Secretary Go and Akane. Lily then turned her head towards Secretary Go. "Have your men lift him and transport him to a hospital as soon as possible." Lily's tone was cold and chilly, instantly making Secretary Go swallow all the words he wanted to say. Even Akane's sobs ceased as she stared at Lily awkwardly.
Seeing Lily's sharp gaze, Secretary Go woke up from his stupor and immediately ordered his men to lift Zhuo Jingren and carry him back to the resort where they have an in-house medical team. Moreover, given Zhuo Jingren's current state, he was not fit to travel to a hospital which was an hour journey away. He needed medical help as soon as possible.
While all this was happening, Secretary Go made sure to give Lily a coat and some food and water before everyone started to trek out of the valley. To Lily's surprise, they were actually located less than a mile away from the resort. But because of the rain and the big pile of stones and soil from the landslide, Secretary Go and the others had found it hard to locate them.
Because of the landslide, Secretary Go and the others went on foot to search for them, thinking that the roads would be blocked. This made Lily a little angry, as she foresee that transporting Zhuo Jingren back on foot might be challenging, given his injuries. But Secretary Go was quick to assure her that Zhuo Jingren would be fine.
In less than an hour, the group arrived at the resort and they were immediately treated by a team of medical personnel.
"I am fine." Lily flinched as a female nurse tended to her wounds that she somehow did not even noticed before.
"Miss Lily, this wound on your elbow might scar if it is not treated properly," the nurse said before she handed Lily some medicine. "The doctor said you need to eat this medicine and that you need to rest."
"I am going to see Zhuo Jingren." She rose from her seat. However, the nurse was quick to stop her. She held onto Lily's shoulders and looked at her imposingly.
"Miss Lily, I really cannot allow you to leave right now. You have wounds on your body and you need to rest. The doctor said that you are not fit to take care of Mr. Zhuo in this state."
Lily narrowed her eyes at the nurse. "I only have some small cuts on my elbows and bruises on my legs. I did not even shed a single drop of blood. I am not feeling dizzy and my mind is perfectly sound. Moreover, I have not seen any doctor around since I got here. Do you see me as a fool?"
Seeing as Lily was not intimidated by her, the nurse stealthily took out a syringe from her pocket. "The doctor had given me permission to sedate you if you refuse to stay. Miss Lily, I hope you won't hold this to heart but this is only for your own good."
Lily's eyes immediately widened when she saw the nurse approaching her with an open syringe. Without further thoughts, she pushed the nurse away from her before grabbing a lamp near her. "Come if you dare. I won't hesitate to hurt you!"
"Miss Lily… please calm down," the nurse raised her hand. "We are only doing this for your own good."
"Own good my ass!" Lily cursed before she looked at the nurse coldly. "Who sent you?"
However, before the nurse could answer, Secretary Go opened the door with two of his men. "What is happening here?" Seeing Lily in a defensive stance, Secretary Go instantly narrowed his eyes at the nurse who immediately paled when she saw Secretary Go enter.
"Mr. Go, Miss Lily refused to take her medicine. The doctor told me that she might be a little delusional because of the accident. She actually attacked me for no reason just a while ago." The nurse quickly spun a tale, hoping that Secretary Go would believe her. The nurse had not expected Secretary Go to check on Lily. Miss Akane had assured her that no one would be coming and all she needed to do was to sedate Lily to make her sleep.
Who would have thought that Secretary Go would arrive at this crucial time? Did Miss Akane fail to stop Secretary Go?
Secretary Go immediately turned his attention towards Lily who was staring coldly at the nurse. "Miss Qin? Are you alright?"
"Go Jichen, give me your phone," Lily said. Her words surprised Secretary Go as only Zhuo Jingren knew his true name in the corporate world. 'Does this mean that President Zhuo is already sharing secrets with Miss Qin? This could only mean that they already passed the first stage!'
Secretary Go's eyes seemed to sparkle from happiness as he retrieved his phone from his pocket and passed it to Lily. Secretary Go decided that he needed to curry favor with Lily Qin starting from now if she was going to be his lady boss soon. With that in mind, Secretary Go turn his gaze to the nurse who was obviously looked nervous. "What did you say was the medicine that you wanted to give to Miss Qin?" he questioned, eyeing the open syringe in the nurse's hand.
"I… this…. This was part of the doctor's prescription," the nurse instantly trembled under Secretary Go's intense gaze. "This will help speed up the healing of Miss Lily's wounds," she lied.
"I am not wounded. That woman is lying," Lily said calmly as she dialed the phone.
"Mr. Go, Miss Lily is delusional because of the shock that she received from the accident. Please have your men restrain her so that I can administer the medication." The nurse mustered all the courage that had to convince Secretary Go that she was just being professional. If these people find out that she had wanted to sedate Miss Qin, then… her medical career is over and she might even be...dead.
"Yang Mi? I'm safe. Send a medical team to Japan as quickly as possible. I will send you the address. Yes… I am fine. I also want you to investigate the background of all the medical personnel working in a resort called 'The Countryside' in Fussa City, Japan. I want to know everything about them and I want to know the results as soon as possible." Lily's voice echoed inside the room, making the nurse even more nervous.
"You- How dare you invade our privacy?" the nurse said, anxiety was written all over her face.
"Surprise?" Lily raised an eyebrow. "Well guess what darling, this is what happens when you offend someone like me."
