“I was just discussing the matter at hand.”
Kiley’s face turned pale, and she remained silent for a while before chokingly saying, “I never expected you to think of me like this now. We have known each other for so many years, and it turns out that this is how you see me in your heart!”
Maxim pursed his thin lips and remained silent, his expression somewhat icy.
Kiley waited for a while, but Maxim didn’t come to comfort her. She felt even more aggrieved in her heart and ran out of Maxim’s office crying.
Just as I ran to the door, I collided with Rayan, who had come to give Maxim the Tear of Elf.
When Maxim gave Tear of Elf to him last time, he noticed that there were some places that had been chipped. He quickly sent it for repairs and it has just been returned.
Kiley was already angry, and she was almost knocked down by the collision. After stabilizing herself, her first reaction was anger.
Just as I was about to speak, my gaze suddenly fell on the necklace in Rayan’s hand, and my heart skipped a beat involuntarily.
“Rayan, this necklace was…”
Did Maxim plan to give it to himself in advance, so he took advantage of Rayan’s delivery when he wasn’t paying attention?
“Ms. Schneider, this necklace was sent for maintenance some time ago. It has just been shipped back from overseas. I will go and get it for the CEO.”
Kiley’s gaze was almost glued to the necklace as she bit her lip and said, “Then you go in, I’ll leave first.”
After Rayan entered Maxim’s office, Kiley slowly walked towards the elevator, waiting for Maxim to chase after her and give her the necklace.
However, she waited for the elevator three times at the elevator door, but Maxim still didn’t come out.
She couldn’t help but stomp her foot. If he didn’t want to go, she didn’t care either!
Bridenville Police Station.
Charles Ponce, accompanied by his lawyer, attempted to bail Natalia and Adeline out, but was unsuccessful. As he was leaving, someone whispered a few words in his ear, causing his expression to immediately turn extremely unpleasant.
Getting on the car, Charles coldly said, “Go to the Yoder Group!”
Half an hour later, Rayan came over to report.
“Mr. Yoder, Mr. Ponce wanted to see you.”
“I was busy.”
Charles waited for Maxim at the Yoder Group for the whole afternoon. Finally, around five o’clock in the evening, he saw Maxim.
He hurriedly approached, “Mr. Yoder, there are a few things I would like to say to you. Can you spare me a few minutes?”
Maxim gave him a cold glance and spoke in a tone devoid of any warmth, “Mr. Ponce, you shouldn’t have come to see me.”
Charles immediately understood Maxim’s meaning and quickly said, “Mr. Yoder, as long as you can forgive us, I will make sure that my wife and daughter personally apologize to Mrs. Yoder!”
“It’s no use telling me this. Go and tell my wife. As long as she agrees to forgive them, I won’t give you a hard time.”
“Okay, I got it!”
Charles, as the President of the Ponce Group, naturally wouldn’t just go and approach Adeline like that. Instead, he had the Public Relations Department release a statement online, clarifying that everything Adeline had previously said was false. It was merely a ploy to ride on the popularity of the movie and increase her own exposure. Furthermore, she acknowledged that she was aware of her mistake.
The manager of the Public Relations Department hesitated after listening and looked at Charles, saying, “Mr. Ponce, if we send it out like this, it seems that Ms. Ponce’s future in the entertainment industry may not be very promising.”
Charles looked cold, “It was her own doing that made it difficult for her to leave. Who told her to provoke someone who is not easy to deal with!”
The manager of the Public Relations Department nodded and said, “Okay, I understand.”
