Mr Carlos Huo, She's Your Wife

Chapter 9 Three Choices

Either of the choices offered was bad. Thus, Debbie chose neither. Among all the principals in their university, Curtis Lu, the elder son of the Lu family, took charge of all things regarding management. Pissing off a principal was the last thing she wanted. Nonetheless… Debbie clicked her tongue. Compared to the principals of other universities who were in their fifties, their principal, Curtis, was really appealing. Being only thirty, Curtis had already been working as one of the principals of the university for two years. That went with the fact that he had gained plenty of admirers. How wouldn't you fall for someone with such charming looks and stellar competency? If Debbie were to be in opposition towards Curtis, her list of arch-enemies would lengthen and she didn't want that. Furthermore, he was one of Carlos' confidants and just like him, Curtis was also part of the four wealthiest families in Y City. Messing with any person who had contact or relations with Carlos meant trouble for her. Comfortingly, Jared and her other friends had signed up for the half marathon, too. It lightened her heart to know that she wouldn't be alone throughout the whole race. Speaking of 13. 1 miles, Debbie turned sour. 'Oh God, why did I let my anger get the best of me…' Debbie sighed deeply. 'I feel like I'm going to die and I'm sure I will. ' Then, what Gail had said to her echoed inside her mind. 'You know, there's always another way if you don't want to race. You can just shout "Carlos, I love you!" ten times, and then I'll let you off, ' Gail had told her. Groaning, Debbie presumed that this had to be one of Gail's dirty tricks she had come up with after she had learned about Carlos' burning hatred for women. A sadistic plan, indeed. Carefully deliberating upon the three choices Gail had given her, she ended up choosing one. Finally came the day of the race, and the skies took on a shade of grey. Wearing the marathon shirt along with her friends, Debbie was warming up before the event started. When she and her friends saw a former silver medalist of the full marathon appear on the track, their mouths gaped. They were screwed. "This is bad. This is really, really bad," all chorused in anxiety. "Jail Mu!" Debbie gritted her teeth, "I'll remember this!" "That bitch!" Jared cursed, agitated. "How dare she play us like this! I'll let her know who exactly she's dealing with!" Silence dawned upon Debbie as she was furious at Gail, but mostly herself. If anger had not gotten the best of her, none of this would be happening. Not just falling for Gail's rotten scheme, she ended up also dragging her friends into it. Feeling a hand on her shoulder, Debbie saw Kasie beaming. "Hey, just don't push yourself, alright? If you can't go on, stop. We can always just go for the second option to lock up the principal. It's no big deal. " This time, Kasie weighed Debbie's options herself

"Would it kill you to keep it a secret?"Elevated by the gesture, Debbie patted both Jared and Dixon on their backs. "Thanks, guys. I'll do my best

. I won't let you guys down. ""Tomboy, don't pressure yourself," Dixon voiced his concern. "Even if you lose, we'll be right there for you whether you select saying 'I like you' to Gus or locking Mr. Lu in his office. " Considering the unpleasant events that occurred between her and Carlos, Dixon didn't think Debbie would consider the third choice. "Alright. I'll keep that in mind," Debbie commented. "You guys better live up to your words as you'll be with me when I say 'I like you' to Gus!" Having such good-hearted friends are hard to come by and Debbie felt incredibly lucky to have them by her side. "Right on, Tomboy!" Kasie interjected with a grin. "Take both of them with you and maybe Gus will find one of them handsome and he'll forget all about you!"That triggered the girls' titter. Meanwhile, Dixon and Jared rushed over to Kasie and raised their fists high. A scream escaped from Kasie's lips. Distracted, they failed to hear that the gun was fired. All runners already got a head-start. The first one to act was Kristina. Then all followed suit after. "Run!" Kristina burst out. "We're already behind!"Placing first within their group was Kasie. Closing in behind her was Jared. "What came over to you to feed Debbie such a feeble idea, Kasie?" Jared huffed. "You better run faster, because you'll be dead meat if I catch up!""Hey. We just started. " Debbie pulled Jared's shirt. "Slow down. You'd be tired in few moments if you keep this up. " Winning doesn't just rely on sheer luck; you have to consider strategy as well. As a person who loved sports, Debbie knew that starting with a full sprint was a terrible idea. Half an hour transpired. The runners that had previously had so much energy now had close to none. Most weren't even running, but walking. Inside the VIP lounge of the university, a haughty man smoked a cigarette as he spectated the live broadcast of the half marathon in front of a wide screen television. "Design Collection for Y City Half Marathon Event from the Star of Y City Design Contest, including the designs for the poster, the eco-friendly bag, and the official mascot. Mr. Huo, are all of these okay?" Tristan Zheng, one of Carlos' assistants, inquired after completing his report. Being the biggest sponsor of the event, Carlos remained impassive, with his lips pressed
