Emitting arrogance, Carlos refused to grab the drink. Marvin Li, however, didn't dare to force him, feeling his menacing aura. He could only force an awkward smile and gave him the contract he had prepared.

While Carlos was reading the contract, his brows furrowed. After a couple of minutes, he stood up and threw the contract on the table. "I won't sign the contract," he said coldly.

After hearing this, Marvin Li got anxious and argued in an instant, "Mr. Huo, as per our last conversation, you agreed to..."

However, even before he could continue, Carlos interrupted him in an icy tone, "Marvin Li, do you think I'm that stupid? The content of this contract is clear to me. Did you really think that I would fall into your trap?" Surprised by Carlos' words, he started having cold sweat.

With a pale face, Marvin Li thought to himself, 'Did he find out the trap hidden in the clauses? How's that even possible?'

Without a word, Carlos walked towards the door. In an instant, Emmett pulled the door open for him.

Looking at Carlos' back as he took his leave, Marvin Li exclaimed, "Mr. Huo, please wait. This is only a misunderstanding!" He tried to follow behind Carlos in an attempt to make him stay. On the other hand, Carlos ignored his plea and left without looking back. He went to the underground park and stopped halfway as he heard an alluring sound. Immediately, he changed his direction and walked towards the entrance of the club.

Under a big tree, about several hundred meters away from the Orchid Private Club, a girl was seen singing a beautiful, sad song. "Just one last dance, before we say goodbye..." her song continued playing.

When Emmett recognized the singer, he widened his eyes to plates, his jaw slack. 'Since when did Mrs. Huo start to make a living as a street singer?' he thought.

When Marvin Li noticed that Carlos seemed to be interested in the female singer, he thought he had a chance to fawn on him. He took out a thick wad of notes from his briefcase and threw it into the iron box in front of Debbie.

After seeing the amount of money he just threw, Debbie stopped singing, shocked by the impressive amount of thousands of dollars.

Everyone looked at Marvin Li, who put on a proud smile and demanded in an arrogant tone, "Sing a song for our Mr. Huo. If you can make him smile, I'll give you more money."

Hearing his words made her fuming mad. The fat man's words came as an insult for her.

Casting a quick burning glare at her so-called husband, she immediately straightened herself and flashed a sweet smile. "Sure, I'll be glad to offer Mr. Huo a song. I hope you enjoy it."

On the other hand, in the gathered crowd, some recognized Carlos and couldn't help but go berserk over his handsome face.

Noticing Debbie's beaming eyes, Carlos suddenly felt bad over Marvin Li's groundless request. He then uttere

coming year!"

With a mixture of anger and disbelief, he sped up and left Emmett behind.

Hearing his boss' words, Emmett suddenly forgot the excruciating pain on his leg. Watching the guitar container and iron box left by Debbie and Kristina, he was at a loss whether to laugh or to cry.

Meanwhile, Debbie and Kristina stopped and sat on a bench at the roadside after running a long way. They gasped for breaths, unable to talk.

Kristina had been startled by Carlos' presence and hadn't heard what Emmett had told him. There were only three words that kept on repeating in her mind -- "bury her alive!"

The very thought made Kristina tremble with fear. She grabbed Debbie's hand and stammered, "Tomboy, hurry... Take the money... Take the money and run as far as you can. I do not wish to see you buried alive!" Her innocence made Debbie puzzled whether to laugh or get worried. All along, Kristina knew Debbie had offended Carlos several times. She also knew that he would, by no means, let her go that easily.

'Since he now knows who I am, I am positive that he will sign the divorce papers soon. He won't have to bury me alive anymore, ' Debbie thought. 'Otherwise, how will he be able to divorce me if I am nowhere to be found?'

Without taking into consideration how easy it would be for Carlos, she didn't realize that he would no longer need to divorce her if she were buried alive. Automatically, he would be single again in that case.

"He won't do that. Rest assured. He is not a mean man," she assured Kristina. Patting her hand in an attempt to comfort her friend, Debbie wondered what could happen after today's incident.

Thinking about this and Carlo's cold eyes, she couldn't help but shiver in fear.

Time went by as they continued to rest. Finally, they decided to go back to the dormitory and hailed a taxi. Just as Debbie was about to get in, her phone rang. It was from Philip.
