Akane smiled at her reflection before she grabbed a brush and started brushing her long silky hair. She already formulated a new plan and this time she was sure that it would work. Akane started humming a tune while carefully putting on her make-up. Then she rose from her seat and examined her provocative clothing.
Later, after Lily leaves… she would make sure to seduce Zhuo Jingren and make him hers.
Akane widened her eyes at Lily who strode into her room. She then hastily covered her body with her robe. "Why are you here?"
The slap from Lily was loud and it stung Akane's face. Her eyes immediately reddened as she clutched her cheeks. "Miss Lily! How could you slap me out of the blue? What have I done wrong?!"
"How dare you try and have Zhuo Jingren killed?!" Lily bellowed, anger apparent in her eyes. "Why do you want my fiancé dead!"
"Miss Lily… I…."
"Answer me!" Lily yelled, immediately making Akane tremble. "Don't try and act in front me Akane! Don't you dare act like a damn white lotus in front of me!
"Miss Lily… I really don't know what you are talking about! Why would I try and kill Mr. Zhuo? I have known him since we were children and I have also admired him since then… I…"
"Cut the crap Akane! The only reason why I am here is because Zhuo Jingren is currently resting! I am planning to give him the evidence once he wakes up!"
"Miss Lily… I really cannot understand what you are talking about… please…. Forgive me if I have offended you… I…"Akane started sobbing, covering her face pitifully. She knew that Lily could not have found any evidence against her.
"Tell me Akane! What did Zhuo Jingren ever did to you? Huh? He was nice to you and your brother… he was polite and never offended any of you! Why do you want him dead?" Lily continued, ignoring Akane's words.
"Miss Lily… how could you say something like this? I have respected Mr. Zhuo for a long time. I did not do the things that you are accusing me of!" Akane said meekly, like a child who was bullied.
"So you really won't confess? Alright… then tell me about the call that the driver received from your cousin in Canada and the call you made after you met Zhuo Jingren? Tell me why you asked the nurse to sedate me! Isn't it because you wanted to keep me away so that you would have the opportunity to kill him? Do you think Zhuo Jingren will spare you and your brother once he hears the evidence that I have?"
"Miss Lily!" Akane widened her eyes in shock. They found the driver? But… she already made sure to bribe the driver a sum of money so that he would disappear after the accident. Did they somehow catch up to him? "I really don't understand…"
"Cut the crap Akane! All I want is to know how had Zhuo Jingren offended you! Why are you trying to kill him? Did his enemies pay you? Huh? Did someone blackmail you? ANSWER ME!"
"I never tried to kill him…. Miss Lily I really don't …"
"Was it because he never liked you?" Akane's sobs immediately ceased when she heard Lily's words. "Was it because he never notice you? Are you really still dreaming of being together with him but you cannot accept him that he is engaged to me? So you want to kill him instead?"
"Akane! What kind of monster are you?" Lily continued to provoke Akane when she saw the anger building up in her eyes. "Why can't you accept that he doesn't care for you? He can never be yours Akane! He is only mine!"
"YOU BITCH!!!!!!!" Akane snapped as she strode towards Lily, her hands were balled into a fist and her eyes full of anger! "I was trying to kill you!!! Not him!"
Akane's gaze was dark as she tried to pounce on Lily. She wanted to strangle the hateful woman to death, to kill her and wipe off that smirk on her beautiful face. However, before her hands could reach Lily, she was pinned down by a tall man. She looked at the man and was surprised to see that it was one of Secretary Go's men. She then turned her face towards Lily who was now smiling at her.
The fiery demeanor that Lily displayed just a while ago was gone and was replaced by indifference. "I was confident that I could make you confess." Lily said before she turned to look in the direction of the door. Akane's face immediately turned pale when she saw that Zhuo Jingren, Secretary Go and Riku were at the door. 'It's over… They have heard everything…'
Zhuo Jingren quickly went up to Lily and examined her body from head to toe. He let out a sigh of relief when he didn't discover any wounds. "I always knew that you could make her confess. But I never thought you could act so well," he smiled dotingly at her.
"Well then… she is one of your people. You better take care of her," Lily said. Akane was Riku's sister so it was only natural for Zhuo Jingren to decide what to do with her. "Don't forget that because of what she did, I had agreed to marry you," Lily said before she walked out of the door, leaving the men with the sobbing Akane.
Lily doesn't like to get her hands dirty. This was something that Zhuo Jingren needed to deal with himself.
Meanwhile, in one of the hospitals in Singapore, an old man was staring at the photo in his hand. He furrowed his brows, his eyes conflicted as he read the findings all over again, in particular the term 'mild hemophilia.'
The man's hands unconsciously made its way into his drawer and he grabbed a phone that he seldom used. He dialed a number and waited for the call to go through.
"I know you are there…" he said in a sad voice. "Aren't you going to talk to your father anymore?" There was no response. The man let out a long sigh before he said, "Lingling… I think I found your long lost son."
