Xuan Hui looked apologetically at Mr. Martin before he shot a glare at Xia Leizhou. How many times had he been interrupted by Xia Leizhou already? Couldn't Xia Leizhou tell that he was having an important discussion? If Xia Leizhou wanted to cause trouble, he should leave him out of it. Seeing as Xuan Hui wasn't interested, Xia Leizhou gave a shrug before he strode out of the booth.
"Where is he going?" Mr. Martin asked, wondering if they were planning to create trouble for Lily Facci-Qin. Mr Martin thought that if they were dumb enough to offend Lily Facci-Qin, then it would be best to stay away with Xuan Hui and his group of partners.
"He is taking care of a little problem," Yuan Dehua explained, giving Xuan Hui an apologetic smile before following after Xia Leizhou. He couldn't miss a good show.
"I think we should follow them," Mr. Martin said. He had already lost interest in this deal anyway. As a businessman, Mr. Martin had to think in the long term. It would be in his best interest to curry favors with Lily instead. The woman was already a legend in Europe, a pioneer in the energy and construction industry. Imagine if she decides to invade the film industry in the future? With a multi awarded director and renowned fashion designer by her side, Lily would definitely be successful.
With all these in mind, Mr. Martin also rose from his seat and followed the men outside. Xuan Hui didn't think that Mr. Martin would be this nosy and he was irritated. It was all because of Qin Jinghua! Mr. Martin's indifference to their discussion didn't escape Xuan Hui's notice as well. Xuan Hui blamed it all on Qin Jinghua and he grew angrier by the minute.
Xuan Hui didn't continue to stay in the booth and followed after Mr. Martin. He only had one thought in mind: Kick Qin Jinghua out of this club.
Meanwhile, Lily was enjoying her dance with Li Shanshan and Fernando. Even Yang Mi and her directors joined in the fun. Lily was determined to enjoy herself tonight as gatherings like this doesn't come by often.
While some people might think a person would lose their freedom after getting married, Lily believes that her marriage with Zhuo Jingren would not be like that. With marriage, a couple would need to make changes and adjustments for each other and Lily was willing to do that. Like the fact that she would be making Hong Kong her base of operations because Hong Kong would be her new home after marriage. This also meant that she might not see Li Shanshan and Fernando as often.
"I really don't think someone of your kind, belongs to this place." Lily turned around instantly, curious to know who had seemingly directed those provocative words at her. Lily eyed the man who was staring at her with animosity. Although he was a little good-looking, he was lanky and pale. He didn't do his expensive looking tuxedo justice.
Seeing as Lily was not responding to him, the man raised his voice this time, "I said… you do not belong in this place!" That immediately got the attention of everyone, including the people in Lily's company who all turned their heads toward him.
"I'm sorry… are you talking to me?" Lily asked, her brows furrowed. Though she had found the man a little familiar, she just couldn't figure out this man's identity. Over the years, Lily had met and interacted with many people for business, and she couldn't possibly remember every single one of them. Moreover, even if this man wasn't someone she met while doing business, but was someone from her past, it was even less likely for her to have any recollections because she was living like a hermit when she was still living with the Qin family.
"Of course! Do you see anyone here as dirty as you?" Xia Leizhou said with a smug on his face.
"Other than you?" Lily raised an eyebrow before turning her head from left to right. She then shook her head. "None"
"You- Stop pretending that you don't know me!" Xia Leizhou said. "This is not a place that you can just come into. Leave now or I will have security drag you and your company out."
"Is there any problem here?" Fernando was quick to stand in front of Lily, shielding her from the man's hostility. "We don't know you… What you are doing is called harassment. We could call security to chase you out instead."
"This is none of your business!" Xia Leizhou hissed, glaring at Fernando. Then he pointed a finger at Lily. "You! Out of this place now!"
Fernando was about to argue back when Lily tugged at his arms. Shaking her head slightly, she signalled Fernando to keep quiet. Lily then used her eyes to signal him to look in the direction of the stairs and what he saw immediately made him more irritated. It was Xuan Hui who was accompanied by some other men. A flicker of understanding flashed in Fernando's eyes before he took a step back, revealing the smiling Lily.
'This is going to be a good show!'
"I really don't think we have met before," Lily said in British accented English. Her British accent greatly surprised Xia Leizhou. "Are you sure you are talking to the right person?"
Xia Leizhou stared at Lily, confusion apparent on his face. 'Is this Qin Jinghua?' Now that he was looking at the woman up close, he realized that this woman was actually very different from the Qin Jinghua that he knew. The confidence and authority oozing out of this woman couldn't be missed and this was something that Qin Jinghua didn't have to his knowledge.
"Qin Jinghua… You are disturbing my meeting. Leave now," said Xuan Hui coldly. He stood in front of Lily imposingly, with Mr. Martin and some friends who had followed them out from their booth.
However, Lily just stared at him, without saying a word. Her face was full of confusion, as if… as if she also did not recognize the person who was just talking to her. She then turned towards Fernando, "Do you know these people?"
A look of surprise also flashed across Xuan Hui's face. British? How could Qin Jinghua speak English so well? His eyes then scanned across Lily's company and was immediately confused. He realized that he didn't know any one of them and most of them looked like foreigners.
"No…" Fernando shook his head. "Shall I have the security kick them out?"
"Hmmm… You can do that," Lily said calmly. "They must be a group of drunkards looking for trouble."
