Decker smiled. "Ramona held ten percent of the Lu Group's shares, and she gave it to me. Your so-called uncle also handed his shares over to me. So I have twenty-five percent of the Lu Group's shares now." He then glanced at Carlos and asked, "With the twenty-five percent, do you think I could take over the company now?"

Carlos thought about it for a moment and then replied, "I can buy twenty percent of the shares for you.

With forty-five percent of Lu Group's shares, you would be in a much better position."

Debbie's eyes went as wide as saucers when she heard what Decker said. "When did you contact them? Why didn't you tell me?"

"You were busy dealing with that old bastard James. I didn't want to distract you." Decker furrowed his brows as if something was bothering him, and complained, "Ramona is so irritating. She doesn't go to work but spends all of her time looking for me. It really annoys me so much."

Debbie frowned and scolded him, "Stop calling her Ramona. She's also a victim of the Lu family. Some day, you might want to call her 'Mom.'"

Decker glanced at her and asked casually, "So, you've forgiven her?"

Debbie sighed. "I want to."

"Bah! Women are soft. Learn from me. I'll never forgive her!" Decker retorted.

Carlos cut in, "If you aren't going to forgive her and you hate her so much, then why did you take her shares? A dog with a full mouth does not bark. You're bound to call her 'Mom' eventually."

Decker had already had enough of Carlos' smart remarks and was seething inside. He was on the verge of snapping. 'Carlos, will you just shut up?' he wanted to say, but he lost his nerve. He had already made a sharp retort at Carlos and didn't dare do it again. So he changed the subject. "Where do you plan on getting that twenty percent of the Lu Group's shares?"

"Don't worry. That'll be a piece of cake. But I won't just hand it to you on a silver platter. You have to promise me something," Carlos said.

Debbie smiled inside when she heard what Carlos had said. After all, he was a businessman, and people in business always pursue profits.

At this point, Decker had become desperate for a smoke, but since Debbie was with them, he gave up on the idea. "You want

he agreement, and then Decker retired to the guest room to have a nap.

Carlos watched as Decker got up and walked into the room. "Don't let him in next time," he said sullenly.

"Why?"

"He makes himself too comfortable here. I don't like it." Even though it was Carlos who had bought the apartment for Debbie, he didn't have the freedom to come and go as Decker did. Debbie often kicked Carlos out of the apartment in the middle of the night, whereas Decker acted as if it was his home every time that he stayed here. Carlos was unhappy about his cockiness.

Debbie stroked his hair and comforted him, "My brother and I are family."

He took her into his arms and retorted, "You're my wife. I'm your family."

Debbie argued, "Not yet."

That evening, Ramona found out that Decker was staying at Debbie's place, so she brought many ingredients over to cook some dishes for the siblings.

Debbie had gone to the company with Carlos, so Decker was in the apartment alone. When he heard a knock at the door, he trudged bleary-eyed to open it, and Ramona walked in with her arms full of groceries. By the time Decker's head had cleared, Ramona was already in the kitchen washing vegetable. He felt awkward to get her out of there.

Ramona had hung her overcoat on the rack. Wearing an azure sweater and wide-leg pants, she pulled an apron on to protect her clothes. At this moment, Ramona was no celebrity but a normal loving mother who wanted to cook dinner for her kids.
