After a few seconds of silence, Briana slowly said, “Call the police directly.”
“Okay, I will arrange it right away.”
Hanging up the phone, Briana noticed that Maxim was looking at her strangely and turned to him, saying, “Mr. Yoder, do you need something?”
Maxim turned her phone screen towards her, a hint of a smile playing at the corners of his mouth. “I didn’t realize you used to like me so much, always sneaking glances at me from behind?”
The scene in the photos on his phone was of Briana secretly gazing at his back, with an undeniable love in her eyes. She felt completely devastated.
Although the entertainment influencer’s revelations were all fake, the photos posted online were all real. Briana could even match each photo with its location and time, but she didn’t know that someone had secretly taken the photos at that time.
She pursed her lips and said calmly, “When I was young, I used to do some foolish things, but not anymore.”
At the mention, Maxim’s smile turned icy, and he stared into Briana’s eyes, saying, “You really don’t like me at all anymore?”
“Mr. Yoder, you should have been clear about the answer.”
She liked him for these years, always closely following his footsteps from behind, but he never turned back.
She was tired and wanted to give up, but he didn’t want her to leave. Briana felt puzzled.
After a long silence, Maxim finally spoke, “Do you need me to handle the online matter?”
Briana shook her head, “No need, I don’t mind, and this matter will be
A hint of imperceptible disappointment flickered in Maxim’s eyes, and his voice lowered slightly, “I am your husband, and sometimes you can try to rely on me.”
Briana frowned and said with some displeasure, “I said I don’t need it, Mr. Yoder. I don’t want to have anything to do with you, nor do I want to owe you anything. I’m tired, let me sleep!”
After finishing speaking, she didn’t care about Maxim’s attitude and directly turned off the light, lying down on the floor to sleep.
A good night’s sleep.
The next morning, while Briana was squeezing toothpaste for Maxim, Zane’s phone call came.
Briana sneered and it seemed like she wouldn’t answer the phone. They wouldn’t give up easily.
She walked to the balcony and just as she connected, she heard Zane’s displeased voice from the other side, “Briana, you saw those online messages, right? This issue has caused a big uproar and it has already affected the Schneider Group’s stock price. You should apologize!”
Briana smiled and raised an eyebrow, saying, “Why should I apologize?”
Did she interfere in Kiley and Maxim’s relationship, outsiders are not
sure, but do he and Mallory also not know?!
“I know you feel wronged, but now the netizens are agitated, and this matter has already affected the Schneider Group. Just consider it for the Schneider Group, apologize and in the future, Dad will compensate you, okay?”
The temperature in Briana’s eyes cooled down inch by inch. Faced with such a situation, instead of clarifying, she thought about apologizing herself.
Did he know that apologizing would confirm the rumors that she was the mistress?
“I have absolutely no connection with the Schneider Group, why should I compromise myself for the Schneider Group? Besides, I am not at fault, I will not apologize!”
As soon as the words fell, there was a rustling sound from the other end of the phone. The next second, Mallory’s angry voice came through.
“Briana, you finally revealed your inner thoughts. Let me tell you, don’t even think about getting involved with the Schneider Group. From now on, the Schneider Group belongs solely to Kiley!”
Even though Briana had long known about Mallory’s favoritism, at this moment, she couldn’t help but feel a chill in her heart.
“Since that’s the case, then let Kiley explain it clearly. I never did anything to ruin her and Maxim, so why should I call her?”
Mallory seemed to be annoyed, and her breathing became slightly heavy
“This mess was caused by you. Why should Kiley clean it up for you? Let me tell you, if you don’t apologize, I will consider you as if I don’t have a daughter!”
Briana chuckled and said, “I won’t go, you can give up on that idea!”
