Julie didn't understand what Carlos meant at first. But soon, she remembered what had happened in the kitchen the day before. 'Did Debbie really take the meal to Mr. Huo's office? Why is he asking about the dinner? Was he displeased by it?' she wondered pensively.

Afraid of the possibility that Carlos was angry at Debbie, Julie replied at once, "Mr. Huo, to make sure that the dishes tasted good, Debbie cooked every dish several times. She even suffered a few minor burns because of the hot, boiling oil."

Julie felt that even though the dishes tasted awful, Debbie had worked hard on them; it was her good intentions that counted.

'Got burnt? Was her apology sincere?' The anger in his eyes disappeared as soon as he heard Julie's words.

"Noted." Carlos nodded and started eating his breakfast.

The stress marks on his face softened. Julie breathed out a sigh of relief and headed back to the kitchen.

After lunch, Debbie got dressed and left the villa.

Debbie, Kasie, and Kristina wandered around to pick out a present for Carlos. They walked out of Dubhe Building and went straight to Merak Building, arm in arm.

"Tomboy, what exactly do you have in mind?" They had been to a few shops for fashionable men's wear, trendy shoes, and expensive watches, but nothing piqued Debbie's interest. If she kept wandering around, refusing to buy anything, Kristina would start suspecting that Debbie was wandering around for hot guys instead of a present.

In fact, the real problem was money. Debbie had been saving up, but her savings were far from enough to afford a decent present for Carlos. "Let's look a little longer," she said.

Kasie leaned on Kristina listlessly, rolling her eyes. "Debbie, my sweet, sweet Debbie, we have been wandering around for two hours now and you haven't bought anything." All the while, she and Kristina, on the other hand, carried a couple of bags each. Some were clothes, but the rest were mostly cosmetics.

"He is so rich, he doesn't need anything. What am I supposed to buy him?" Debbie was in a dilemma.

"Is it his birthday?" Kristina asked. Debbie had told them she was shopping for a present for a friend, but they knew she was hiding something from them.

"Nope," Debbie answered.

Kristina rolled her eyes at her. "Since it's not his birthday, why do you suddenly want to give him a present?"

Debbie returned her a stare, but she wasn't going to answer her question. She was too embarrassed to tell them that the present was for Carlos and it

voice, but her eyes were staring at Debbie resentfully.

Kristina felt goosebumps all over her body. "Hey, Gail. Can't you just speak normally? I've got goosebumps here," she shouted.

The other shop assistants all began laughing at Kristina's joke. Gail cast her a fiery glare. "Kristina, this is none of your business. Keep your nose out of this," she retorted.

Kristina curled up her lips and turned her head away. Not only was Gail a self-proclaimed "it" girl, she was also a snitch. Kristina never took a fancy to talking with her, so she sat down to rest and didn't want to say another word to Gail.

Debbie slapped Gail's hand away and pushed her aside. "Why didn't you buy it earlier? Now I have my eyes on it," she declared unequivocally.

Gail was alone; while on her opposing side, there were three of them. Needless to say, the situation was not to her advantage. Gritting her teeth furiously, she took out her phone and called her boyfriend. After all, the mall was his turf!

"Victor, please come to Enjoy Suit Shop on the third floor. Someone is bullying me," she urged coyly, with an extremely soft voice, which made Debbie cringe. It was a wonder how Gail managed to turn into such an innocent, weak girl in an instant.

'Hmph! Calling backup? No big deal. I don't give a damn, ' Debbie thought to herself. "Settle the account!" Debbie demanded and glared at the cashier with an intense look on her face. However, the cashier was still hesitant. The name Victor rang a bell. She had heard it before. Was he the vice-general manager of the mall? She wasn't sure about it. But if he was who she thought he was, how could she afford to offend him?
