Of course, she would not confront this woman. It would be a waste of her energy and time. After they went inside the room where the exclusive collections of jewelry were displayed, Lily immediately chose an earring and a watch for Qin Yuanfeng. It was nothing special. It's not like she would wear it, anyway.
All she wanted is to get rid of this woman so she could enjoy the rest of her day. She could easily tell Su Ma to leave her alone. But, Lily does not really want to label herself as the crazy stepdaughter who wanted to ruin the possible marriage of her father. Alright, maybe she is crazy. But she would never stop someone's marriage.
She would rather have her father marry this woman and learn his lessons soon. Than stop his marriage and become the antagonist of her father's 'destiny'. The thought instantly made Lily laugh inwardly.
Moreover, she also wanted to see how this woman acts without Qin Chuan.
After she made an order for Qin Chuan, Su Ma instantly made the payment. All this time, she was smiling and talking in a very gentle voice that Lily was not really used to. To be honest, the woman had this warm voice that could easily lull someone to sleep.
"Do you want to have coffee with me?"
"No." Lily s.h.i.+fted her gaze towards Su Ma. "I still have to buy a few things for our house."
"Oh! I used to study interior design, do you want me to…"
"No." Lily smiled. "I have a very eccentric style. But thank you. I think you should probably rush home. I mean… you wouldn't want to make Qin Chuan worry, right?"
"That is right," Su Ma returned her smile. "Well then, thank you for being so nice. I was not expecting that you will give us the chance. I mean… after last night." She smiled almost shyly. "I hope this will be the start of our relations.h.i.+p."
"Of course," Lily answered nonchalantly. She then turned towards the opposite direction with Yang Mi silently following her around.
"President… that woman— "
"Let's not talk here," Lily uttered in a low voice. Does that Su Ma think that she could fool her? Lily's lips curled into a s.a.d.i.s.tic smirk. Her previous a.s.sumption that someone is scheming behind her back is right.
Showing her emotions on the first night that she met that woman was the right thing to do, Lily concluded. Now whoever is behind this would think Su Ma's presence would bother Lily.
Too bad…. Just too bad. She is someone who was already used to people trying to rile up the emotions inside her. Bec's face bothered Lily the first time that she saw that Su Ma. But… it would not bother her forever.
"Make sure that no one is following us,�� Lily uttered. Aside from her bodyguards who were following her around, Lily wanted to make sure that Su Ma is not following her.
After walking for a few more minutes, Lily decided to go to a store that sells blankets and pillowcases. Then she went to buy some cleaning supplies before finally going to the section for infants.
Lily did not stay too long in the mall as she was already tired from walking a lot. She asked one of her guards to bring the things that she bought at home while she goes to see Zhou Jingren in Zhou Capital.
When Lily arrived in Zhou Capital, an enormous banner instantly caught her attention. "Hong Kong Business Awards?" Lily halted her steps and look at the banner.
"Madam," one of the employees bowed when she saw Lily walking towards the executive elevator of the building. By now, everyone in Zhou Capital was very familiar with Lily and Yang Mi. "The President and Zhou Capital had been nominated for the awards. Mr. Go asked us to put some banners and some balloons." The employee explained when she saw Lily eyed the big banner outside the bank.
"I see. Thank you." She smiled before walking towards the elevator. "Yang Mi?"
"If I'm not wrong… this should be the fourth time that Zhou Jingren was nominated for these awards right?"
"Yes, President. But, this is the first time that he accepted the nominations."
"Alright," Lily uttered. Before she arrived, Zhou Jingren does not really have a media presence. She figured that it was because he was avoiding the attention of the Zhou Family. Since the Zhou Family is already back to its rightful owner, Zhou Jingren can now expose himself to awards like these.
Lily smiled as pride rose inside her. Zhou Jingren deserved this nomination. "We should prepare something for him." She said in a low voice.
In response, Yang Mi nodded.
Yang Mi does not really know if Lily was talking to her or her unborn child as she was stroking her tummy while she spoke. Yang Mi read that pregnant mother's always talk to their unborn babies. This should be one of those times, no?
After a few seconds, Lily and Yang Mi arrived inside Zhou Jingren's office. Lily had a big smile plastered on her face. "Congratulations!" she walked towards him, beaming as pride swirled in her eyes.
"Thank you." He turned towards his wife and let her sit on his lap. Lily folded her arms across his neck before she pulled him for a long, warm kiss.
"You deserved it." She said almost inaudibly as she rested her forehead into his. Her warm eyes met hers. "We are so proud of you," Lily added, excitement clear in her eyes.
Zhou Jingren was someone who worked really hard for his company. He made a name for himself because of his hard work and perseverance. Lily could never imagine how much this man had endured for his dream.
And Lily will be very proud to tell this story to their child and grandchildren.
"I did it for you," he responded, his voice gentle. "It was all for you to marry me."
