Saohuang stopped the car suddenly by the side of the road.
He stared darkly at her. "Miss Lin, what do you mean by that?"
Lin Yun smiled thinly. "Do you really need me to spell it out for you? Do you really think I believe it is just a coincidence that bad things keep happening to the Xi family? If anything, my belief is that they're innocent of most of this."
Saohuang's sharp gaze never moved. He smiled. "It sounds like Miss Lin believes it was me who framed them."
"I didn't say that. I'm just thinking, since there have been two coincidences already, why not make it happen a third time?"
"If you want another coincidence, you should go pray to God. Why are you telling me this?"
"I'm just discussing it with you. I believe you also hope that a third coincidence will happen, right?" Lin Yun smiled and asked but her meaning was fairly obvious. She knew it was Saohuang who framed the Xi family and she wished for him to do it again!
Saohuang smiled lightly. He had a question of his own. "Actually, I'm curious, why is the Lin family so adamant on destroying the Xi family. Like Xi Munan asked, what is your purpose?"
"Big Brother Feng, curiosity kills the cat."
"But we're in a collaboration, right? If you wish for this to continue, you have to give me something."
In other words, if he didn't have anything on his side for leverage, he would not utilize his resources to frame the Xi family. Lin Yun was a smart cookie, so she understood what Saohuang was getting at.
She thought about it and decided to reveal some information, "Really, we're not seeking much. It's their own fault for refusing to cooperate with us. Since they're not going to be our friend, they have to be destroyed. Plus, the Xi family is sitting on such a large amount of assets, who wouldn't be interested?"
So, they are after the Xis' assets. She's right, anyone would be interested in such large assets.
"Big Brother Feng, we are running out of time. If the Xi family doesn't fall, it'll be troublesome for you as well. So, I'm sure you know what to do," Lin Yun said as she patted him lightly on his arm like she was asking him to do something simple.
However, the thing she asked was for him to destroy the entire Xi family. Saohuang might be cruel, but he was not stupid. He would not do this kind of task that mostly benefited others.
Furthermore, the thing that he wanted was already close to his hands, there was no need for him to take the extra risk.
Then again, Lin Yun had a point, as long as the Xi family still existed, he had something to worry about. After all, they knew he was the one causing their downfall. After they came back from this ordeal, they would definitely come for him.
"Big Brother Feng, if you keep this cooperation, your future is guaranteed to be bright. Don't worry because we Lin family will always be on the lookout for our allies," Lin Yun continued to lure him in.
Of course, Saohuang knew they were only using him to kill the Xi family by proxy, but he had no choice but to follow the order.
He smiled lightly. "No more next time."
Lin Yun's face split into a smile, "Naturally! I assure you, this is the last time."
Saohuang didn't reply but started his car.
After he dropped Lin Yun back home, he returned to his camp.
After he told Sun Yu everything, Sun Yu said anxiously, "Boss, the Lin family already knows it is us who framed the Xi family. What should we do? They will definitely use this knowledge as leverage over us."
Saohuang shook his head. "Don't worry about that for now. Lin Yun only has her suspicions but no actual proof."
"But you've admitted to her"
Saohuang laughed. "So, what if I did? She still had no proof. But this Lin family really thinks I'm their lackey, huh? We're in a cooperative relationship; I'm not someone they can just order around."
"Then what shall we do?" Sun Yu asked.
"What else can we do? The Xi family must be destroyed but the Lin family is not going to escape unscathed either!"
