When Debbie was ten, the Nian Group was given to the Lu Group in payment for debts, and then her grandpa passed away. Meanwhile, her father suffered from a rare illness, which cost at least ten million dollars in two years. From then on, Debbie was no longer a princess.

When the Nian family's financial woes began, only Lucinda and Sebastian had helped them, and Debbie had been invited to the Mu family's house very often.

Unable to stand the attention her parents were showering on Debbie, Gail felt her space invaded, and soon in retaliation, she started to bully Debbie around.

Not to trouble her aunt and uncle, Debbie had stoically endured Gail's bullying.

But one rainy day, Debbie's endurance came to an end. That day, Debbie's dad was in the hospital in a coma. The doctors needed an adult relative's signature for the operation. Debbie thought of her aunt, so she came to her house for help. However, it was Gail who answered the door; and she wouldn't let Debbie in.

If it had ended like that, Debbie wouldn't have hated her so much. That rainy night, Gail had pushed Debbie into a kennel and kept her there with a dog for an entire night.

The next morning, a housemaid found Debbie when she went to the kennel to feed the dog. She was shocked! Immediately, she woke up Sebastian and Lucinda. When the kennel was opened, in the biting cold of late fall, Debbie was carried out unconscious and freezing. For three days, she remained hospitalized, running a fever. Shocked at the heinous act, Lucinda had given Gail a thorough flogging and for the next three days forced her to kneel in the ancestral temple, until Debbie was discharged.

Debbie was surprised that Gail had brought up the things from their childhood. In Debbie's memory, when she was a child, her grandpa loved her the most. The things the other kids had, her grandpa would make sure she had them too. She also had some things that no other kid had. Her bedroom was packed with the princess dresses her grandpa had bought for her, just because she liked them.

While Debbie was lost in thoughts, Lucinda stood up, intending to lecture Gail. However, Debbie put out an arm to stop her. Then she turned to Gail and said, "Nobody was ignoring you. The other kids and I wanted to play with you, but you always acted haughty, as if you were better than the rest of us. Whenever we played in the garden

od idea to have someone at her side if she took Sasha with her to the investors' dinner, Debbie texted Carlos, asking, "Sasha wants to visit the manor. Mr. Huo, does she have your permission?"

"In our house, Mrs. Huo is the boss," Carlos replied.

Debbie was amused by his message. "You're so sweet. I want you to take the driving seat tonight."

"Driving seat?" After a pause, Carlos added, "How about I go home and leave you in charge now?"

Hearing that, Debbie started the car quickly and responded, "Mr. Huo, I'm driving the car. Talk to you later."

Carlos, who was in a meeting with the employees of the planning department, smiled, making him look much milder.

The young are fearless. A recruit of the planning department saw that smile. "Mr. Huo, you look so happy. Have you been texting Mrs. Huo?" she asked.

Few of his employees had been brave enough to ask such questions, so Carlos was surprised to hear it, but he nodded.

The entire planning department got excited. They were dying to know what kind of woman was able to win the heart of the cold, powerful Carlos Huo, but none of them dared to ask Carlos to show them his wife's picture.

"Wow! My goodness! Dear lord! Good heavens! Oh my God!" When Sasha arrived at the manor, she couldn't hold her joy. She ululated and screamed her heart out, feeling grateful at her favorite cousin's windfall.

From the entrance to her bedroom, Debbie felt she was going deaf from Sasha's high-pitching, excited shrills.

She had been shocked too when she had first come to the manor, but Sasha was on another level.
