Adeline covered her face and looked at Charles in disbelief. Natalia, who was standing beside her, pushed him away and pulled Adeline behind her, glaring angrily at Charles.
“What were you doing?! Do you know how scared Adeline was at the police station these past few days because of you?! Not only do you not care about her, but you also hit her! Charles, have you gone mad?!”
Charles sneered, “If it weren’t for you guys offending Briana, the Yoder Group wouldn’t have cut off all cooperation with the Ponce Group. You don’t have to worry about anything at the police station. Do you know how many smiles I had to put on and how much it cost me to get you guys out?”
Natalia’s anger still lingering on her face, she coldly said, “Isn’t this something you should have done?!”
“If it weren’t for you and Adeline constantly acting recklessly, would I have to go and apologize to someone else with a fake smile? I’m warning you, both of you better apologize to Briana tomorrow night until she is satisfied!”
Tears welled up in Adeline’s eyes as she gritted her teeth and said, “I won’t apologize!”
Charles looked cold, “If you don’t go, we will cut off our father- daughter relationship in the future. You can do whatever you want to self–destruct.”
Upon hearing this, Adeline stood frozen in place. After a long while,
she trembled and spoke, “Dad, what do you mean by this?! You’re actually cutting ties with me for a stranger?!”
“Was I just a pawn for an outsider? Do you know how the Yoder Group has been suppressing the Ponce Group these past few days? If this continues, the Ponce Group will go bankrupt in less than a month!”
I didn’t expect things to be so serious. Adeline bit her lip and said, “But Kiley clearly told me that Maxim loves her. How is it possible for him to go against the Ponce family for Briana?!”
Charles thought about the words Briana had said to him when she left. and his face turned cold. “If Maxim really likes Kiley, why doesn’t he divorce Briana and marry her?”
“It was… It was Briana who refused to get divorced!”
Charles sneered in disbelief at Adeline’s stupidity. “You believe everything Kiley says, yet this time when you needed her to plead with Maxim, she didn’t help you! Use your brain when you act! Tomorrow night at the banquet, either apologize to Briana or I will publicly announce that I am cutting ties with you. It’s your choice!”
After speaking, Charles turned around and left directly.
Adeline looked at Natalia, who had been silent since just now, with a bewildered expression. “Mom, what should I do?”
“Apologize, just as your father said!”
“But I didn’t want to…‘
Before she could finish her sentence, Natalia coldly interrupted, “Adeline, do you know who taught me to have someone pour paint on Briana?”
Adeline paused for a moment, and a faint suspicion arose in her mind. but she didn’t want to admit it.
“Stop talking, Kiley wouldn’t harm me!”
“Think carefully, why was it you who got beaten up by Briana when you were with her last time, not her? And why is it us who got caught this time, not her?!”
Adeline’s eyes were filled with pain. “Mom, please stop talking! We willingly did all these things, Kiley just wanted to help us!”
“You should have less contact with her in the future, otherwise you won’t even know how you died!”
If it hadn’t been for Charles‘ words just now, she might still be hating Briana. Thank you, Kiley.
Without looking at Adeline’s reaction again, Natalia turned around and left.
Kiley wouldn’t let it go so easily, she was determined to get back at them, mother and daughter!
Adeline returned to her room in a daze and just as she sat down on the bed, she received a call from the “My Timeless and Endless Love”
“Ms. Ponce, due to your recent actions that have crossed the boundaries of our production team, after much discussion, we have decided to terminate your contract with our team. Starting tomorrow, you do not need to come anymore.”
Briana returned to the villa and felt a bit uncomfortable seeing Maxim sitting at the table waiting for her to eat.
She walked over to Maxim and sat down, saying, “Let’s eat. Next time. you don’t have to wait for me.”
Maxim did not respond to her words, but instead raised an eyebrow and said, “Feeling good today?”
Briana nodded, “Hmm. Adeline’s father, Mr. Ponce, apologized to me today at MY Corporation and said that he would make Adeline and Natalia apologize to me publicly.”
“The Ponce family finally had someone who knew how to behave!”
