Emmett wiped the cold sweat off his forehead with his eyes closed. He gritted his teeth and decided, "Fine, I'll have to betray Mr. Huo then." In light of the years he had worked for Carlos, his loyal nature, and Carlos' intimidating personality, it was a hard decision for him to make.

Debbie smiled and patted his shoulder. "Good boy."

Emmett waited until there was nobody around them before whispering to her, "Mr. Huo went on a mission with Wesley and Damon."

Debbie was confused. 'What mission? Carlos has been out of the army for more than five years now. Why is he on a mission all of a sudden? And Damon is a gangster. Why is he on a military mission?'

Her confusion was nothing beyond Emmett's expectation. However, he didn't intend to explain everything to her. Even though he had given in to Debbie, he didn't want to betray Carlos thoroughly. He had kept some of it unsaid as a way out. "Yeah, there was a mission, but I have no idea what it was or where they have gone."

For a moment, Debbie was quiet as she took in the news. She was furious and also found the whole thing absurd. "Under normal circumstances, I would understand if Carlos went on a military mission. But he had just been shot. Didn't the military officers know that? And his wound reopened yesterday..." Debbie flushed recalling what had happened in the ward yesterday afternoon. But she recovered soon. She continued angrily, "Is there no one else available in the army? Why did Wesley have to put Carlos, a freshly wounded man, on this task? Is this their so-called brotherhood?"

Emmett explained anxiously, "It's not like that. It was originally agreed on that all three of them would take part in the task. However, Mr. Huo was wounded later on. Both Wesley and Damon tried to talk him out of the mission. But you know Mr. Huo. He always goes through with his decisions."

'What kind of mission is so important that Carlos would be determined to be a part of it? And Damon is concerned about it too, ' Debbie thought. Suddenly, a possibility occurred to her. A dash of gloom covered her face. "This has something to do with Megan, right?" she asked.

Emmett was surprised. 'She is so smart.' "I...I don't know. Mrs. Huo, I have to go and ch

her phone and darted towards the door. Emmett hurried towards the door with a flustered face and was just in time to stop her. "Tomboy, I thought you had calmed down. Where are you going?"

She closed her eyes sadly for a second and took a deep breath before saying, "Relax. I'm not going to find Carlos. I don't even know where he is. I need to ask that jerk something."

"Lewis?" Emmett asked, puzzled.

"Yes," she replied. Debbie considered it wise not to tell Emmett what Lewis had done to Kasie in the hotel room. "I'll be gone for a while. Take care of Kasie. Call me if I'm needed."

"No problem. But can you tell me who did this to her? I need to know."

Debbie hesitated. "I can't... Not yet. Things are still unclear. But don't worry, I'll tell you as soon as I find out."

She turned to leave.

But Emmett got in her way again. "Does it have something to do with Lewis?"

"Maybe, but that's uncertain. That's what I'm going to ask him."

Emmett was silent. What should he do if it was Lewis who had done this to Kasie?

Debbie walked out of the ward while he was still deep in thought. But it was too late for her to go to the police station. So, she went back to the manor.

Looking around the empty house, she became depressed and restless. Without Carlos, it didn't feel like a home anymore. She felt insecure. After a quick shower, she climbed onto their bed and lay down. Unbidden, all kinds of thoughts crossed her mind and kept her awake until midnight.
