Mo corporation.

Inside Mo Zixin's office

With his phone still pressed against his ear and his eyes squeezed shut, Mo Zixin pursed his lips.

He curled his fingers into a fist when a tear trickled down his cheek.

Pain, that was the only thing he was feeling right now. Yumi's each and every sob was like a stab in his heart.

He wanted to talk to her, he wanted to say something but couldn't find the right words.

What could he possibly tell her? That he is sorry for making her wait? He is sorry for making her cry, for breaking her heart?

Tossing his phone on the table, Zixin loosened his tie.

"Andre." Zixin shouted.

Just then a man dressed in a neat suit and tie entered the office. "Yes boss."

"Ask the men to pack up and get the plane ready." Zixin ordered before getting up from his seat.

Andre widened his eyes in shock and asked, "But why? I mean we are not ready."

"Did I ask you whether we are ready or not? Do what you are told." Zixin commanded.

Andre pursed his lips and did not say anything.

"And didn't I tell you to take care of the news? What happened to that? How did the news get leaked in country S? I give you one easy task and you miserably fail to complete it." Zixin lashes out at his assistant.

Andre lowered his head and sighed. "I am sorry boss but it was already too late when we found out about the news. I immediately took actions and brought the news down but by that time, many had already seen the news."

"Never mind we can't fix something that has already been ruined. Just get the men ready." Zixin ordered.

"But sir we cannot take any action now. We are still a month away from the actual attack date. The troops are still under training and it's very risky for you as well. We have to go there prepared otherwise things can turn out to be very ugly." Andre didn't understand why his boss was acting so impulsive but there was no way he would let Zixin risk his life.

"No more questions okay? Don't forget who is the boss here. Go and prepare everything. I still have a couple of things to deal with." Zixin said.

Andre helplessly nodded his head and left.

After sometime, a woman barged into the room.

"What the hell is wrong with you Zixin? Do you even realise how risky this is? Attacking them is already very risky and to top that up, going there under prepared is like seeking death. Everything is running smoothly then why are you doing this?" The woman lashed out.

Zixin fronwed and slammed the table. Glaring at Kathy and Andre, who was standing right behind her, Zixin shouted, "Are people forgetting who the real boss is? Do I have to remind you all? People are supposed to take orders here, not give suggestions or question my decisions. When I said we are doing it tonight that means we are doing it tonight even if the world comes to end. Do you understand?"

"She called you didn't she?" Kathy asked.

"That is none of your business." Zixin snapped.

Kathy sighed and helplessly shook her head. "Look Zixin I know how you are feeling right now but this is not the time to act impulsively. Your life is at stake here. If you do this, you might not be alive to even see her for the last time Zixin. She will also live thinking that you never cared for her."

"How is the transfer thing going on?" Zixin asked.

"It's smooth, we are almost done. I will be flying to country S tonight to arrange other things." Kathy was the managing director of Mo corporation and also a very good friend of Zixin.

"I'll leave this thing to you then and I hope everything will be ready when I come back." Zixin said.

Kathy pursed her lips and tried to stop him for the last time. "Don't do this Zixin. You've waited for many years for this and now here it's actually about to happen, don't ruin it. All your sacrifices will go in vain."

Zixin shook his head and said, "I cannot afford to wait anymore Kathy because if I delay anymore, I might lose her forever." Before walking out of the office.

After Zixin left, Kathy chuckled and helplessly shook her head. "Andre have you ever fallen in love?"

Andre vigorously shook his head and said, "No madam."

"If falling in love makes a person as stupid as him then I don't want to fall for anyone ever in my entire life." Kathy said.


Country S.

Li Corporation.

Zian was grinning from ear to ear when Mian brought lunch for him.

"What? What are you staring at?" Mian asked.

Zian shook his head and answered, " Nothing."

"Oh God Zian stop it, I'll go blind if you keep showing your teeth that way." Linyang pretended to cover her eyes.

"Well, do we even have to eat lunch to fill our stomach? I don't think so because the amount of dog food that is being shoved inside my stomach is making me feel bloated." Yushen grumbled.

Ignoring Linyang and Yushen, Zian inched closer and lifted his chin up.

Mian smiled and helplessly shook her head before taking off his tie and unbuttoning the topmost button of his shirt.

Hitting his chest, Yushen picked up his plate and started walking towards the door.

"Yushen where are you going?" Linyang asked.

"I am outta here because I cannot see this. It's making me sick." Yushen yelled before barging out of the office.

"Seriously you two, just get married." Linyang advised before shoving a piece of chicken inside her mouth and getting up.

"Where are you going now?" Mian asked.

"Giving to people some space. I would rather go and eat with my little brother than you two lustful people." Linyang said before walking out of the office.

"Mian I-"

Cutting Zian off, Mian asked, "Why didn't you tell me?"

"Tell you what? I tell you everything." Zian said.

Mian narrowed her eyes and glared at him. "Really? You tell me everything? So does that everything not include the time when you met Zixin and hung out with him for an entire day?"
