He had to find out what had happened, how had her calls not got through, who had blocked her attempts to contact him? He caught a break, his solicitor was stopped by a colleague, he had his briefcase open, Gong-Huk looked quickly at the paperwork and found something he could use.
“Is it true that in a divorce, she is entitled to half of my belongings and I half of hers?” he asked his solicitor. His solicitor agreed that was generally the way things were divided up in these cases, but that as they hadn’t actually owned any property together and all she wanted was a quick divorce, Gong-Huk was going to come out of this divorce considerably better off than he may have done. Gong-Huk had other ideas.
He called his mobile provider and asked how a number had been blocked, they advised him, he had called and asked to ensure there was no way his ex-wife could get through or leave a message as they were going through a difficult divorce. He called his secretary and asked why she had told Lowrie he wouldn’t take her calls. “Miss Chang, sir, told me not to let any calls get through.”
“You're fired, clear out your desk,” at which he hung up. Chang Xia, turned up in his car to collect him. “Listen very carefully,” he said leaning in close to Chang Xia's ear, she was smiling, she obviously had no idea what was coming, he thought with satisfaction, “I have never loved you, I have never liked you, you were simply 'business' and when I find out how large your part was in the destruction of my marriage, there won't be a solicitor in this world will be able to save you. Now, get out of my car,” at which he had his chauffeur remove her.
He only thanked God there had never even been so much as a kiss between himself and Chang Xia, it had only ever been business merger, now all he had to do was convince Lowrie of that fact and get his wife back.
