As soon as Carlos entered the apartment, Millie ran to greet him with excitement. Harley barked at her as if to complain about being neglected.

Millie then turned back to play with Harley. When the dogs were entertaining each other, Debbie scanned the room and did a quick observation.

"Isn't your...girlfriend home?" she asked Carlos, who was taking off his coat.

Every time she spoke of his girlfriend, Debbie felt as if she and Carlos were sneaking around.

"No, she isn't. Make yourself comfortable." With that, Carlos walked into one of the bedrooms.

'Of course, she isn't home. If she were, I bet he wouldn't have let me in, ' she reflected.

How strange things turned out to be. Never had it occurred to Debbie that one day she would walk into Carlos' home and feel like an awkward guest.

They were once the closest and dearest lovers who used to live together. Carlos' amnesia had turned her into a stranger to him even though she knew him so well.

Carlos walked out of the bedroom while Debbie was looking at photos of Stephanie. He had changed into a casual white outfit that made him look years younger.

Now he looked to be in his early twenties rather than thirty-one years old.

Carlos noticed that she was staring intensely at him and asked, "Is something wrong?"

"Yes," Debbie said with a nod. "You look dashing."

Carlos was left speechless.

He put the leash on Millie and made his way to the door. Debbie quickly did the same with Harley and followed him out.

They came downstairs together and walked their dogs along the footpath outside of the apartment buildings.

Before long, they came across Blair.

She had been looking for Debbie. "Good evening, Mr. Huo," she greeted. Carlos responded with a nod. "I've been looking all over for you. I don't have your phone number," Blair said to Debbie.

"What's wrong?"

"Have you told Mr. Huo?" Blair came closer to Debbie and whispered in her ear.

"Sorry. I forgot." Debbie slapped her head, remorsefully. "I'll tell him now."

"Okay, go ahead." Blair gave Debbie a slightly harder push, and because Debbie was caught off guard, she had lost her balance and began to fall towards Carlos with a shriek.

Blair held out her hands and tried to grab Debbie. 'Wow! I didn't think that

company." She winked discreetly at Blair when she was finished.

Taking the hint, Blair gave her a thumbs-up when Carlos wasn't looking.

'This girl can make an excellent negotiator. She knows that Carlos won't agree to go upstairs and spend the night with her. That's why she laid down that condition. That way, Carlos would have no other option but to help us.'

Carlos glanced at them both and then started to go home with Millie.

When Carlos had returned to his apartment, Stephanie was about to go out again. Once she saw him come back, she asked gently, "I was about to go downstairs to look for you. Didn't you plan to have dinner with Mr. Li? Why did you cancel it?"

Carlos took the leash off Millie and answered vaguely, "Because I didn't want to go." He only wanted to come back to walk the dog.

Stephanie was surprised by his reply. 'That sounds willful.' "But we could stand to make a ten million profit from our cooperation with him."

"So? He's a scumbag. I don't want to do business with him." Carlos seemed disinterested in the conversation and went to feed Millie.

Stephanie stood gaping and was left speechless. 'Mr. Li is indeed a freak, and he did time a few years back, but is that a reason to refuse to do business with him? Besides, he wouldn't dare try and pull the wool over Carlos Huo's eyes.'

Even though Stephanie didn't understand Carlos, she decided not to push the topic any further. "I gave the cook the night off. I wasn't expecting you back for dinner. Shall we eat out?"
