June 21st, Tuesday - 7th day
Lily woke up with a splitting headache. She immediately clutched her head before snuggling deeper into Zhuo Jingren's arms.
True to his words, Zhuo Jingren didn't do anything to her last night. He merely hugged her to sleep after he was done giving Lily a head massage. In fact, Lily was so tired that she actually fell asleep while Zhuo Jingren was giving her a head massage. His techniques were too good ah.
Zhuo Jingren's assurance last night was very much needed. She gradually felt less awkward towards the man. Their first night together wasn't too bad. Though her head was still throbbing, she could not deny that her heart felt a little lighter. She was happier.
"Sleep some more, I will make a soup that will help to relieve your headache. I will call you once it's ready." She heard him say.
"Hmmm… what time is it?" she asked, her eyes still half-closed and her head still resting on Zhuo Jingren's arm like his arm was a pillow.
"Almost one in the afternoon," said Zhuo Jingren a matter-of-factly.
"You didn't wake me up! I have lots of meetings today." Lily immediately jolted up and hastily got out of the bed.
"You were snoring… and drooling too… how could I disturb you when you are like that?" Lily ignored Zhuo Jingren as she ran towards the bathroom. She would only snore or drool if she was very tired, alright?!
Lily took a quick shower and then called Yang Mi up to her apartment. Since she was not in office for a few days, Lily had a lot of things to do today.
"Here are today's stock market rates...You also have a meeting at three with the internal board of directors of A.R Mall and Boutique. Lawyer Yan also called me earlier, he said that he has received a copy of your marriage certificate and he will be able to process the paperwork to transfer the late Old Master Qin's land deeds over to your name. He said that he will bring the papers to you once everything is finalized." Yang Mi took a pause to look at Lily, who was eating her breakfast with President Zhuo. The latter kept adding food into his wife's bowl.
"Continue," Lily said while taking another mouthful of food.
"Alright. The design for the new Harmony Isle is already done. It needs your approval. Mr. Kim had also sent a bunch of dresses for you to wear to Fashion Week's final show and after-party. He said and I quote 'These are specially designed with love for Lily Qin.'"
"Were you the one who sent our marriage certificate to Lawyer Yan?" Lily asked Zhuo Jingren. She couldn't think of any other plausible explanation of how the lawyer came to know about her marriage.
"Of course." He smiled. "Don't worry, I've asked him to keep our marriage a secret from the Qin and Xuan family. I know that you are still not ready to announce our marriage."
"Actually… I don't mind letting people know that we are married." Lily was quick to answer. She was thankful for Zhuo Jingren's thoughtfulness but she also knew that the man would love to let the whole world know about their marriage. Moreover, Lily was not really intending to hide her own marriage ah. She just wanted to keep the news about their marriage as low-key as possible.
"Really?" Zhuo Jingren beamed.
Lily nodded earnestly before she turned to Yang Mi, "Give me the complete details of the Internal Directors for A.R Mall and Boutique. I need them before the meeting later."
"Got it, President." Yang Mi nodded. Lily then informed Yang Mi that they would be moving into Sky City later in the day. Lily also told Yang Mi that she and the two directors would also be moving into Sky City when their apartment is ready. In the meantime, they would continue to stay put here.
After Lily was done eating, Zhuo Jingren said that he had to go back to the office. He apologized that he would be late again tonight but Lily was understanding about it. As they were bidding each other goodbye, Zhuo Jingren held Lily's hand up and was about to kiss her hand when Lily held him by his shoulders, tiptoed and planted a wet kiss on his cheek instead.
Why was he always kissing her hand? Were they living in the past where they had to be reserved when it came to showing their affections? Moreover, they were at home, so it was alright to be bolder yes?
Lily's swift action made Zhuo Jingren freeze and turned his face beet red. Lily couldn't help but burst out laughing. The man was blushing just because she kissed his cheek? How funny was that?
But how could Zhuo Jingren let Lily mock him without countering back? His lips immediately lifted into a smirk before he lowered his head and kissed her on the cheek. Then, without waiting for her to respond, Zhuo Jingren strode out of Lily's apartment, chuckling away.
Lily only smiled as she watched the man disappeared from her sight. What a silly man.
"Ummm… Ehem… Mrs. Zhuo…" Lily turned to look at Secretary Go, a look of surprise was on her face as she wondered when that man had gotten here.
"Ummm… President Zhuo insisted that I call you 'Mrs. Zhuo.'" Secretary Go immediately explained when he saw Lily raised an eyebrow at him.
"Our men will be moving your belongings to Sky City later today. Also, President Zhuo had asked me to find the best location for Facci Group's headquarters relocation here. Here are some good choices of office buildings that are less than twenty minute drive from Zhuo Capital. These locations are also less than ten minutes drive away from Sky City," Secretary Go reported while handing a pile of folders to Yang Mi.
Lily nodded in approval. Zhuo Jingren was so thoughtful, he had already made all these arrangements without waiting for Lily to ask for his help. "Good… I will let him know once I make my decision."
