A crisp sound reverberated around the room. It was Lucinda's hand that had slapped Gail across the cheek whilst Debbie stood there, expressionless.

Venting her anger didn't seem to satiate Lucinda's anger. Picking up a feather duster, she swung it towards Gail.

"Augh! Mom!" As the duster hit her back, Gail screamed in agony.

How revealing it was that she had acted weak, helpless, and innocent in front of her schoolmates! Now, her true colors showed that she was mean and willful.

Watching everything happen right before him, Sebastian rubbed his temples with resignation and never interfered with his wife educating their daughter.

Looking at her aunt who had always favored her, Debbie was moved. Her heart ached when she saw Lucinda disappointed and heart-broken. 'Never mind, ' she thought. 'Gail has already been punished.' Seeing Lucinda raise the duster again, Debbie stepped in and prevented her from going further. "Aunt, you've already hit Gail. I think she knows what she did wrong now."

"Debbie, stay out of this. You've pleaded for her so many times since you were little! Look at her, she never learned!" Being the principal of a kindergarten, Lucinda was nice and able to control her temper, although her elder daughter Gail often drove her crazy.

The younger daughter, Sasha Mu, had behaved better than Gail and even got along with Debbie.

In the Tea Room

Gail had been sent upstairs to apply some ice on her face. Sebastian went to the Tea Room, took out a tin of black tea and began to wash the tea leaves.

Sitting next to Lucinda, Debbie took out her phone and sent Carlos a message. "You let Gail off easily just this once and I'll go to New York and talk with your grandfather about our divorce."

Receiving no reply from him, she assumed that Carlos was busy.

All three chatted sparsely until Sebastian received a call and had to leave to head to his company.

After Sebastian had left, Debbie looked into the cup and recalled what Gail had said to her moments ago. "Aunt, who's my mother? Why did my father refuse to tell me anything about her even on his deathbed?" she asked lightly. When her father was knocking on heaven's door, he made sure to marry his daughter to a stranger instead of letting her search for her mother.

The expression Lucinda wore

and see! I'll marry someone richer and more powerful than your damn husband!"

Gail mentioning her father's name made Debbie look upward and gaze at the blue sky. Taking a deep breath, she finally responded, "No need for that. You've already lost."

Indeed, that was a fact. Because in Y City, even in the entire H Country, who could compare to Carlos in terms of wealth and power?

Nothing but best intentions in mind, her father had married her off to the best man, but sadly, it didn't work out between them.

"Hey, what do you mean?" Gail rushed forward to grab Debbie. "Don't you dare go without clearing that up!"

A fist greeted her in response. "One more step and your face is mush."

Knowing that Debbie possessed an extensive knowledge of martial arts, Gail stepped back to keep herself out of Debbie's reach. "I wonder what kind of pervert would actually like you. No wonder you've been single your whole life!

You'll be an old maid forever!" she declared furiously.

"Do I really need a man to live my life?" Debbie retorted.

The moment she got on the plane, a new rumor started circulating around the campus which claimed that Debbie was a lesbian. Again, her name became the hottest word on the forum of the Economics and Management School.

In New York

Before exiting the waiting area at the airport, she called Emmett to inquire about Carlos' grandfather's address.

To her surprise, she received an address of a hospital. "Hospital? Why is he in the hospital? What's wrong?" she asked in confusion.
