Debbie shut her mouth immediately. As the saying goes, "He who talks much errs much." She wondered whether she had said something wrong that caused Valerie's fury. But she didn't say anything wrong.

"Debbie Nian! You are so rude! Didn't your parents teach you about self-esteem and self-respect?" Valerie's words cut Debbie's pride like a sharp knife.

Her face was hot as she felt both sad and humiliated.

"Grandma, Deb—"

Before Carlos could finish, Debbie interrupted him. 'Carlos has been yelled at by his family this whole time because of me. I should do something, ' she thought. Looking Valerie in the eye, she flashed a smile and said, "Grandma, I don't think it's a big deal to leave self-esteem and self-respect behind to be happy."

Carlos had done a lot for her, and she should repay him. And this was the best way she knew how. By carefully choosing words that they couldn't argue over, maybe she could stop them from fighting. Maybe she'd even win one for Carlos. Who knew? But it was important that she stood up for herself and for Carlos, not to mention for their marriage.

Carlos' eyes lit up when he heard this. Meanwhile, his heart ached as Debbie had to fight against three elders.

James knew he was in the wrong, so he had to find another excuse to yell at her. "Debbie Nian! Who do you think you are? We're older than you. Show some respect!"

Debbie blinked and sighed with resignation. "I wanted to respect you, but respect is a two-way street. You haven't shown me any respect at all."

No one had ever dared to talk to James like that before. His face twitched as he said through gritted teeth, "Fine! You have guts! Aren't you afraid that I'll drive you out of the Huo family's house?"

Upon hearing that, Debbie held Carlos' arm and said playfully, "Honey, your father wants to throw me out of the house. Protect me?"

"Hahaha..." Wade burst into laughter at Debbie's reaction.

The tension in the study was eased a little by Wade's laughter. However, Valerie and James still wore long faces. It would take more than just that to change their minds.

Carlos pulled Debbie into his a

sed her lips.

Meanwhile, a picture posted on Weibo had caused a flurry of rumors in Y City.

A paparazzo had taken a picture of Carlos and his wife waiting for their flight in a VIP lounge. Megan was there as well.

Debbie's face was blurred and indistinct. No one liked that, least of all the netizens.

According to the news, Carlos had taken his wife to New York to meet his family and celebrate the New Year. He had also taken Megan with them. People believed that Megan was the apple of Carlos' eye.

By the time Kasie saw the post, there were already hundreds of thousands of comments. She couldn't help but feel sorry for Debbie, so she left a comment. "Poor Mrs. Huo. There's always a third wheel between her and Mr. Huo. Miss Lan, why were you looking at your uncle like that? Like you have a thing for him. I heard Miss Lan always pestered her uncle even if Mrs. Huo was there. Miss Lan, you are not a little girl anymore. And the winter vacation started a long time ago. Can you please fly to New York alone next time? Mr. Huo is busy, and I'm sure he wants some alone time with his wife."

Debbie had complained to Kasie before that she felt there was something wrong with Megan's feelings towards Carlos.

Kasie had also warned Debbie not to let Carlos and Megan stay with each other alone. After all, Carlos and Megan weren't related by blood—it was perfectly normal if she had a thing for him.
