Mr Carlos Huo, She's Your Wife

Chapter 2 The Elusive Carlos

After planting a kiss on Carlos' lips, Debbie immediately withdrew, fled the hallway and ran straight back to the room. "Debbie!" Kasie shrieked as she shut the door. "You were awesome, girl!" she said proudly, slapping the celebrant on the back. Panting after her escape, Debbie heaved a sigh of relief. Meanwhile, Carlos' face darkened after the surprise kiss. He stood rooted to the spot but saw the girl disappear inside Room 501. The man was about to ask his bodyguards to haul Debbie out of the room and throw her into the sea when his phone rang. Annoyed over the interruption, he answered the call. After listening for a few seconds, he snapped, "Okay. I'll be right there. " He pressed the button to end the call and then glanced at Room 501. He inhaled sharply to control his fury. There was an emergency in his company, which needed immediate attention. "Count your lucky stars today, woman. You better pray I never see you again. You won't get away the next time you provoke me," Carlos muttered as he turned to leave. Inside Room 501, Debbie rubbed her red cheeks and felt them burning in embarrassment. It was the most insane thing she had ever done in her life. Heart pounding, her mind was a jumble of thoughts. 'Oh my God! That was my first kiss, and I don't even know who he was! Could that have been cheating on my husband? Oh never mind! I've already signed the divorce agreement. And it's okay even if Carlos isn't willing to sign it. Legally, a couple who's been separated for more than two years is deemed to be automatically divorced anyway. I haven't seen him in the three years we've been married. So maybe legally, I'm no longer his wife. That means I was not cheating on him. Besides, it was just a kiss. ' Debbie forgot everyone around her. Suddenly Kasie yelled, "My goodness!" All her classmates jumped at her outburst. "What is wrong with you, Kasie? You scared me to death!" Kristina Lin, who was about to drink wine, spilled the liquid and was patting her chest to calm down. Excitedly, Kasie stepped up to Debbie, who was still lost in thought, and shook her shoulders. "Do you know who that man is?" she demanded. The object of Debbie's prank was a man every woman dreamed of. He was young, handsome, rich, and powerful, and he owned a large multinational group. People called him Mr. Huo as a sign of respect. "So, who is he?" Debbie demanded while grabbing a glass of champagne and taking a big gulp. "Carlos Huo!" Kasie yelled the name as she looked at the celebrant's face. The name was supposed to say everything about who the man was, so she wanted to be sure Debbie heard it right. The champagne sputtered out of the girl's mouth the moment Kasie said Carlos' name. Debbie began coughing violently, unaware that she had spat the liquid on her roommate's face. Instead of getting mad after being showered by champagne on the face, Kasie was stunned. Even Jared was flabbergasted when he heard the name

The last time she went to the company, Debbie didn't introduce herself, so guards prevented her from entering the building. At that time, Carlos had just come back from an overseas trip. And while standing outside, she saw her husband getting out of the car from a distance

. Unfortunately, she was too far to get a good look at him. And it was a long time ago. Even when she knew his name, she never found any photo of Carlos on the Internet. He kept a very low profile, never granting interviews with the media and not allowing anyone to post his picture online. There was one time though when Carlos' picture was published. In that photo, it was said that he was holding the hand of an actress. But before Debbie could get a glimpse of the photo, it had been deleted. Now, she finally saw her husband's face. And she even got to kiss him! If he had signed the divorce papers, technically, he would be her ex-husband. While Carlos was known not to lack women for company, he hated the female species who took the initiative to get close to him. So that was one more reason for Debbie to be agitated. 'Oh my God! I am screwed. I truly hope he didn't recognize me, ' she kept praying silently. When she arrived at the villa, she heaved a deep sigh of relief when she noted no light was on. "Maybe he didn't hear Kasie call my name, and didn't even recognize me. Thank God for that!" she muttered. Tapping her still blushing face, she threw herself on the living room couch and recalled everything that happened tonight. "If he recognized me, he would no doubt dislike me. But maybe, that's better. Then he'd sign the divorce agreement without hesitation," she mumbled. Debbie was a junior student in Class 22 of Finance Department of School of Economics and Management in Y City University. There were more than 50 enrolled in her class. Forty of them passed through the college entrance exam, while the rest went through the back door. Y City University was among the Top 3 local universities. Even Carlos graduated from this institution. There was a long line of people wanting to enroll in the university. Debbie was one of them and got in through the back door. Marc Dou, an old professor, stood on the platform in front of his class. He pushed his glasses up his nose and took a deep breath while staring at his students, most of whom were sleepy. Suddenly, there was a loud bang! The professor threw a book on his desk. The sound brought many students back to their senses, and they quickly sat up. But one of them, a girl in a white leisure coat, who sat in the last row, was still asleep on her desk. Fuming with rage, Marc Dou roared, "Debbie Nian!" He might be old with grey, grizzly hair, but his voice was still booming. In the silence that ensued, you could hear a pin drop. But neither the noise nor the silence made any difference to Debbie, who was still sound asleep. Everyone was staring at her as she remained in dreamland.
