Debbie had extra leisure time recently, and seeing that it was raining outside, she decided to go to the ZL Group and pick Carlos up.

When Evelyn heard that she was going to get Carlos, she insisted on going along with her mom.

Debbie pointed to her pink boots and said, "It's raining cats and dogs outside. Your boots will get all dirty if you go out."

Evelyn shook her head defiantly and said, "I'm not afraid. I miss Daddy."

Debbie sighed helplessly and took Evelyn with her.

When mother and daughter reached the floor where Carlos' office was, Tristan was the only one there. Debbie greeted him and pointed to the closed door of the CEO's office. "Is he busy inside?" she asked.

Tristan shook his head. "No, Mrs. Huo. Mr. Huo is at a conference in the meeting room," he said with a smile.

Upon hearing that, Evelyn turned around and walked towards the elevator. Debbie caught up to her and asked in confusion, "Wait! Evelyn, where are you going?"

After they got inside the elevator, Evelyn pointed to the buttons and said in her cute little voice, "The meeting room." Debbie finally understood and pressed the button for her.

Inside the meeting room

Carlos slammed a stack of files on the desk and asked in a cold voice, "So this is the business plan they're offering? Who's in charge of this? Did you take a look at it yourself?"

The senior executives were scared stiff. One of them mustered up the courage and stammered, "I-It's me. Mr. Huo, I did. I checked it. These were the best terms that they could offer."

Upon hearing the last sentence, Carlos banged his fists on the table and shouted, "Replace them, or I'll have you replaced! And—"

Before he finished speaking, the door to the meeting room suddenly opened from the outside. All eyes were on the door, and Carlos frowned turning to see who dared interrupt his meeting. A little girl toddled in calling out in a cute voice, "Daddy! Daddy! It's raining. Mommy and I came to pick you up."

The senior executives then looked at Carlos. He immediately transformed from a furious CEO to a gentle and caring father. His eyes were full of tenderness as he looked at his daughter.

rsuade their daughter. "Evelyn, you need to practice walking."

"Daddy, I don't want to walk. Mommy said my boots would get dirty."

Debbie raised her eyebrows in surprise. 'Seriously? This little girl is so cunning she even knows how to make an excuse, ' she thought, stunned.

"It's okay if your boots get dirty. Our housemaid will wash them, or we can buy a new pair of boots," Carlos said, trying to coax her.

Unexpectedly, Evelyn kissed her father on the cheek.

Carlos' heart melted immediately, and instead of persisting in putting her down, he hoisted her up onto his shoulders. Much to Evelyn's delight, her fake tears had turned into giggles.

Debbie stood behind them and shook her head in disbelief.

'Really? He gave up that easily?'

She trotted towards them and called out, "Hey, old man!"

Carlos turned to look at her. "What?"

"You said you wouldn't like to have a daughter. Remember?"

He furrowed his brows, confused and asked, "When did I say that?"

"A long time ago! When Megan asked you whether you would prefer a son or a daughter, you said you wanted a son," she said, looking him in the eye, waiting for his answer. Back then, Debbie had been afraid that he wouldn't love their baby if she gave birth to a girl.

Carlos didn't know how to answer her. He remembered that he did say that. After a short while, he said, "I'll tell you when we're home."

'Why is he acting so mysteriously?' she wondered.
