Carlos pulled out his phone, pressed some buttons, and put it back in his pocket.

"I shouldn't have mistreated you in the past. I shouldn't have threatened you with your kid. But I didn't abort your kid, so please forgive me," James pleaded, looking at Debbie with a hopeful expression.

When he had finished, Debbie stared at him with daggers in her eyes. "James Huo, because of you, Carlos and I had been separated for three long years. Do you think that weak, insincere apology could make up for the happiness that had been missing for three years? Not good enough!"

James swallowed hard and continued, "I shouldn't have let Stephanie masquerade as Carlos' girlfriend after he lost his memory. I was a fool back then. I swear I won't do it again. If you let me go, I'll leave Y City forever with Stephanie and never appear before you—"

"Stop it!" Debbie yelled. She couldn't stand to listen to James' sniveling and hypocrisy any longer.

Carlos pulled her into his arms and kissed her head to comfort her. Then he turned to James, who was still kneeling on the ground, and said coldly, "James Huo."

James feebly raised his head.

"Let you go? Well, that's never gonna happen," Carlos said menacingly.

"How could you break your word!" James shouted defiantly.

Carlos growled through gritted teeth, "Did I say that I'd let you go after you apologized?"

Carlos then took Debbie's hand and led her to their car.

Once they got in, Carlos called out to Niles, who was still packing his first-aid kit. "If you're not getting in, we'll be leaving!"

Niles raised his head to look at Carlos with his eyes as wide as saucers. Then he quickly grabbed the box, picked up the loose bits of medical items lying around, stuffing them into his pockets and ran towards the car. "Carlos Huo! Is this how you repay me? Don't forget it was me who just saved James' life! If it weren't for me, he'd be dead right now!"

Niles threw the medical box into the car and dived into the passenger seat just in time before the car drove off.

Ignoring his complaints, Carlos asked, "How's his health condition? How many years does he have left?"

Niles buckled himself up and answered, slightly out of breath, "He has nothing wrong but high blood pressure. He's probably got at least another twenty ye

at she had said was all true.

These were all influential people including Kinsley, Carlos, Curtis, Xavier, and other big shots.

James' case had made quite a stir, and everyone was keeping an eye on it. After several months had passed, the court issued the convictions of James and company.

According to the Supreme People's Court of Y City, Stephanie was sentenced to life imprisonment for murder, incitement, and framing.

James was deprived of political rights and sentenced to death for what he had done.

Several senior executives of the ZL Group who had committed serious crimes were sentenced to life imprisonment as well.

James' capital punishment was carried out immediately. On the day he was executed by shooting squad, Valerie flew in from New York and claimed his ashes. She had his ashes buried in a remote cemetery.

There was a temple not far from the cemetery. Valerie decided to spend the rest of her life there to atone for James' crimes.

By the time everything was over, it was almost the end of the year.

Debbie was emotionally and physically exhausted by the end of it all. She stayed in her bedroom at Carlos' manor for two days, and the maid would bring her food and drinks for sustenance.

Douglas was dead, and Valerie was now in Y City. Miranda and Carlos were in Y City too. So the other members of the Huo family decided to move back as well.

On the first day of the Lunar New Year, Miranda and Wade went to the Huo family's old house, while Carlos and Debbie went abroad to travel.
