After all, the Ponce family has always been cunning and unscrupulous in their business dealings, so even though the Ponce family is only of average level in Bridenville, there are not many companies that dare to offend them.
“Don’t you even consider who she married? Just with the name Maxim, she can walk around Bridenville with pride. Let’s be careful with our words from now on, so as not to invite trouble upon ourselves.”
“Hehe, Mrs. Schneider, your expression suggests that you are unaware of Mrs. Ponce being taken away by the police, right? It was just over half an hour ago when the police came, and we were still playing cards with her!”
Mallory’s face turned pale, and it took a while before she fumbled for her phone and dialed Zane’s number.
“Zane, she… Briana…”
Before the words were finished, Zane coldly interrupted, “Shut up, I am busy right now, you immediately tell Briana to go home!”
Listening to the busy tone on the phone, Mallory’s anger surged up again.
In the morning, she refused to apologize and even cut off ties with her. Now, she has called the police and had Adeline’s mother arrested. Briana is really going too far!
Back at the villa, Briana and Maxim had dinner, and Wyatt came over
to treat Maxim.
After the treatment ended, Briana escorted Wyatt out.
Walking up to the entrance of the villa, Wyatt changed his serious expression in front of Maxim and looked at Briana with a half–smile, asking, “Briana, how was my acting?”
He was referring to the fact that he pretended to be unfamiliar with Briana in front of Maxim.
Briana nodded and said seriously, “Wyatt, if your medical skills are as good as your acting, you will definitely be unbeatable.”
He glared at Briana, pretending to be angry, and threatened, “Don’t forget, you still need my help now. If you make me angry, I’ll quit…”
Before he could say the words “I’m leaving,” he was shocked to see what Briana had taken out.
“Myriad Poison Pill! How could you have this thing!”
Briana raised an eyebrow, “Before leaving, the master asked Hailey to give it to me.”
Wyatt immediately pounded his chest and stomped his feet, “The master is too biased!”
Briana glanced at him coldly and ruthlessly exposed him, “Don’t think I don’t know. Master had Hailey bring you a lot of medical books.”
Wyatt’s expression froze instantly, he sneered and said, “Boring, why are you waving this Myriad Poison Pill in front of me?”
“This was the reward for helping to treat Maxim’s leg.”
Wyatt looked incredulous, “Really?!”
“You didn’t have to give up.”
Wyatt quickly dodged the detox pill from her hand and looked at her with a smile, “Yes, I need this! So, I’ll take it!”
“Do you still want to quit now?”
Wyatt shook his head and said seriously, “What are you talking about? A doctor with a kind heart would never abandon a patient. If Mr. Yoder doesn’t improve for a day, I will persist in coming to give him special treatment!”
Seeing him looking so serious, Briana couldn’t help but smile and said, “Alright, it’s getting late now, you should go back.”
“Alright, see you tomorrow!”
Briana returned to the bedroom and saw Maxim leaning on crutches, struggling to walk forward. With each step, cold sweat would appear on his face, which also turned red from the effort.
She hurriedly went forward to support him, and spoke with some dissatisfaction, “Didn’t I tell you? Give me some special treatment a few more times before slowly starting the reconstruction. This way, the pain will be greatly reduced!”
Maxim let her help him onto the bed and whispered, “I thought you would want me to recover quickly so that you could divorce me.”
Briana paused for a moment as she covered him with a blanket. “I did hope for you to get better sooner, but I also don’t want to rush things. Your leg is more severe now compared to three years ago, and it will take longer to recover.”
