Thinking about how he had just saved her and considering her current physical condition, which made it inconvenient for her to cook, she nodded and said, “I will stay here until I recover, and then I will move back.”
Maxim’s eyes grew colder for a moment, and he remained silent, clearly indicating his disagreement.
“By the way, where is Sammy now?”
Briana’s eyes flickered with surprise as she looked at Maxim and said, “Did you kill him?!”
“No, he accidentally fell down from the mountain during his escape, and when he was found, his body had been completely disfigured by
Even if he hadn’t fallen down, I wouldn’t have let him continue living!
Briana nodded, “He had a partner named George.”
After Sammy died, George, feeling guilty, has already turned himself
After speaking, doubt flashed in Maxim’s eyes. “You are just a small employee of MY Corporation, why did Sammy and George go to such great lengths to catch you?!”
Briana pursed her lips and lowered her gaze, saying, “Because earlier, George wanted to sign a contract with Sammy and asked me to go and
get Sammy to sign it. But Sammy wanted me to sleep with him, so I ended up giving him a beating. He held a grudge against me and that’s why he conspired with George to kidnap me.”
However, Maxim’s suspicion did not diminish in the slightest. “If it was just because of that, wouldn’t it be simpler for Sammy to have George fire you from MY Corporation, and why would he need to kidnap you alone?”
Briana rubbed her temples and frowned, “Did you forget that Melody and I are good friends? Even if George wants to fire me, Melody won’t agree!”
As for Sammy bringing George along, he was just a lunatic. How could I have guessed what was going on in his mind?
Maxim’s eyes deepened slightly, but he didn’t ask any further.
“You rest well, I will go to the study to work. Call me if you need anything.”
After Maxim left, Briana finally breathed a sigh of relief.
In the afternoon, Melody came to see Briana.
Melody finally breathed a sigh of relief when she discovered that she had recovered quite well.
“Do you know that I was terrified when I heard that you were kidnapped? Luckily, you’re safe. Otherwise, I would have skinned George and Sammy alive!”
Briana smiled and said, “I’m fine, what’s the big deal?”
“You dare to say that I’m overreacting! Do you know that if it weren’t
for Maxim this time, you might have…”
At this point, Melody’s eyes suddenly turned red and she didn’t continue speaking.
“Alright, if you start crying, I won’t comfort you!”
Melody rolled her eyes and said in a displeased tone, “Who said I was going to shed tears!”
“Okay, okay, okay. You didn’t, it was me who started crying, right?”
Melody wiped away her tears and took out a document from her bag “How do you plan to handle this contract? If we give it to the police, George will definitely spend his whole life behind bars!”
Briana remained silent for a few seconds before speaking, “Destroy it. I don’t want anyone to know that I was the CEO of MY Corporation.”
“You didn’t want Maxim to know, right? Afraid he would divide the property with you?”
“If anyone should be afraid, it should be him afraid that I would take his money. It’s just because we were about to get divorced, and I didn’t want any complications.”
Thinking of Maxim, a vague and indescribable emotion suddenly surged in Briana’s heart, causing her to unconsciously furrow her brows.
After knowing that he had saved her, she could clearly feel that her determination to divorce had significantly weakened compared to
But if they continued to be together, she would become the pathetic Briana she used to be, and she would never let that happen!
Melody stayed for a while longer and then left with the contract.
Briana took a few days off to rest, and the police came to take her statement several times.
When the police left for the last time, they looked at her and said, “Ms. Schneider, George wants to see you.”
come over tomorrow?”
The next morning, Briana drove to the police station.
After a few days of not seeing each other, George had completely lost his previous vigor. He seemed to have aged ten years, with his hair turning completely gray.
He was locked in here for the past few days, and finally experienced what it means to be cold–hearted.
Those relatives whom he had helped in the past, when they saw him in trouble, not only refused to help him one by one, but also urgently distanced themselves from his family.
George finally saw through the true colors of these people, but unfortunately, it was too late.
He was filled with unwillingness when he saw Briana
“Briana. Sammy died, and now I have to go to jail. Are you satisfied?”
Briana looked indifferent and said, “This is your own doing with Sammy, I have no satisfaction or dissatisfaction with it.”
George gritted his teeth, although unwilling, he knew he didn’t have a chance to compete with Briana anymore.
“I called you here today with the purpose of asking you what you plan
