"And why does Mr.Feng thinks that I'm liable to answer that? If I remember it correctly, I don't owe any explanation for my actions...…. Unless Mr. Feng first answers my husband's questions that he once put in front you." Xiu Mei said, giving the aura of a ferocious businesswoman that she was. She was clear in her words; it's a game of give and take.
"What questions are you talking about?"
"That's for you to recall. I don't have the tendency to repeat words."
"What If I refuse to answer?"
This time his question manages to get a reaction from Xiu Mei, as she gave a small smile, but it looked more like she was mocking the man sitting in front, "That's up to Mr. Feng! However, just like I'm no one to force the answers from your mouth, similarly, I'm not to be held responsible for the damage that my actions might inflict you."
Feng Dingxiong's eyes flickered; he arched an eyebrow, "What're you going to do? Don't make any rash decision!" Although he tried to act calm, inwardly he was panicked.
"Why should I be afraid of making a rash decision? I'm no more a pushover and neither are the people around me. With the combined power of Feng Jianyu, Lu Xion, and my grandfather, even Yang Sheng and Yang Mi have to think hundred times before harming me." Xiu Mei said confidently, "The one who should be afraid is you because you're the one supporting Yang Sheng."
The cup in Feng Dingxiong's hand cracked. Xiu Mei reacted as if she saw nothing; she did not even bother to pass the tissue that was kept within her hand reach.
"What did you just said? DARE. SAY. IT. AGAIN!" His jaw muscles clenched in and out. All he could do was to clench the cup tightly to let out his anger.
"Why? Aren't you supporting Yang Sheng from the day one? If not, tell me what you were doing on the streets of Country Y instead of being with your injured son. It can't be a coincidence that you came to save me from the molesters just at the nick of time. Tell me, why you didn't bother to tell Jianyu about me when he woke up after three months and rummaged the entire country for me.
Don't tell me you were not aware of Jianyu and me at that time. The video of a girl in a pink dress running from the resort…. How can you not recognize that it was the same girl you saved? You obviously kept the facts away from him.
How naïve of me, I took you to be my savior. But no! You were just trying to cover your bad deeds. Years later, when we met again, I didn't try to hide my identity and promised you two things to pay back the huge favor. Least was I aware that it was your facade. I won't be surprised if I found out that you were aware of Yang Mi and his son's intentions to kill me, yet you didn't bother to stop me from approaching my death. Tell me…."
"ENOUGH!" He got up and slammed the gold porcelain cup on the floor. "I'm not here to hear all this nonsense. If you have something to say about my wife then say. Otherwise, the walk towards your car is still the same."
"What do you expect me to say about the woman who is going to....." She scoffed, leaving the sentence incomplete, "Anyways, I wish I could've given you my best wishes but there's nothing in this world that can save your precious wife. You lost the opportunity!"
As expected her words instantly made Feng Dingxiong restless. What does she mean? He turned to look at her, shocked.
"What do you mean? Complete the sentence!"
She got up, wore her sunglasses and had just taken a step when Feng Dingxiong covered the distance and stood in her way.
"I asked you something. You're not allowed to leave the place unless you answer my question."
She turned sideways but he followed and grabbed her arm. Lu Xion's bodyguards reacted but seeing her stopping them with the wave of her finger they stopped at a distance.
"DAMMIT, ANSWER ME!"
"Frustrating it is! Isn't it?" She tilted her head and looked straight into his eyes and said, "It feels awful when the person holding your answers refuses to entertain your request. Right? Well…. Bear with it just like me and Jianyu. But remember you're on the wrong side of the battle. THE LOSING SIDE!"
"That's not the answer I want! Complete the sentence and then leave!"
"Dream on! Keep on struggling with the thoughts until the sleep takes over you only to repeat the pattern the next day, just like how Jianyu can't stop thinking about his parent's involvement." Xiu Mei mocked him. Keeping her gaze hidden behind the sunglasses, she was calmly executing her plan on this stubborn big man of Feng family.
As expected, a little pressure on the pained nerve was enough to force anyone on his knees. Judging by his reaction and body language, she was clear that he has started giving up.
She took a step back, pulled out the tissues from the box kept at the table and offered it to Feng Dingxiong, "wipe sweat!" Unconsciously he extended his hand to take the tissue but pulled back instantly. This girl! She dared to play mind games with him.
"I'm sure you're clear of Yang Sheng's motives. He is still unsure of my identity that's why provoking me, again and again, to go against you. If I'm not wrong he's using Mrs. Feng….." She saw the subtle change in Feng Dingxiong's eyes and smirked, "Why am I talking about Mrs. Feng? Of course, you're aware! But let me ask you something!" She mused, "What Yang Sheng will do to you once my identity is out in open? I'm sure an intelligent man like you knows the answer. All the best"
Feng Dingxiong's eyes flickered. He knows it very well what will happen next? Yang Sheng will kill his wife!
"It's only best for you to keep yourself hidden and be safe. Once Yang Sheng finds out that you're the daughter of Mo family, he won't leave a stone unturned to get you.." He tried to scare her but will that work on a woman who has once escaped the claws of death?
"Let him come! That's what I want!" She answered casually, "Without him taking a step against me….. Who else will add spice to my boring life?"
She checked the time on her wristwatch, "I have got a press conference to attend. Please do watch it on TV! By the way, Shen Lina is also attending the event."... But will she disclose everything about Mrs. Feng and Yang Lina? Of course, she will! Otherwise, Kong Liu will receive the same torture as mine….." She mumbled audibly to make him listen.
"Shen Lina?" Feng Dingxiong was speechless. How did she manage to find her? Didn't Shen Lina went into hiding after Kong Da's incident? Even his own men failed to locate her details and came back empty-handed.
What else she knows?
"Goodbye, Mr. Feng." She turned, but crossed her fingers, hoping for this trick to work. She has not arranged any press conference but actually lied to take advantage of Feng Dingxiong's weakness, his wife.
