Maxim looked at her and spoke in a calm tone, “Whether you praise this necklace or not, I will still buy it. This is the three–year anniversary gift that I have prepared to give to Briana.”
Kiley took a few steps back in disbelief, tears welling up in her eyes.
“Is what you said true?”
The people around started to discuss, mostly mocking Kiley for overestimating herself, thinking that Maxim would still be waiting for
Finally, Kiley couldn’t take it anymore and ran out of the banquet hall.
Maxim’s cold gaze swept over those who were discussing Kiley, and he coldly said, “If I hear any more mockery towards Kiley, the consequences will be on you!”
After watching a farce, Briana felt no emotions in her heart and walked towards the crowd, pushing Maxim.
Among the people Charles invited were the leaders of various major corporations in Bridenville, many of whom were interested in collaborating with the Yoder Group. They approached Maxim one after another to have a conversation.
Briana stood beside and listened carefully, obtaining a lot of information.
After chatting for a while, Maxim turned around and saw Briana with
her head down, as if she was lost in thought. He spoke up, “If you’re feeling bored, you can go to the dessert area and grab something to eat.”
Briana came to her senses and smiled, saying, “No need, I think it’s quite interesting to listen occasionally.”
Maxim saw the situation and didn’t say anything further, continuing to chat with his partner.
Not long after, Natalia and Adeline went downstairs.
Seeing Briana standing in the crowd, Adeline’s eyes flashed with a hint of hatred. Briana caused her to lose the role and be locked up in the police station for several days, and now she had to apologize in public!
At this thought, Adeline felt a surge of resentment in her heart.
Was it necessary for her to let Briana humiliate her just because she didn’t have the good fortune of having Maxim as her support?
Natalia pulled Adeline’s hand and whispered, “Adeline, endure it for now. When Maxim no longer likes that bitch, we will slowly deal with her!”
Adeline lowered her head, concealing the hatred in her eyes.
“Mom, don’t worry, I knew what I should do.”
Seeing the two people coming downstairs, Charles walked up to the stage and picked up the microphone to start speaking.
“Thank you all for coming to this banquet today. I believe everyone is aware of the controversial incident that Adeline caused online before. This incident has had a very negative impact on Ms. Schneider and has also hurt her. I am deeply sorry.”
Today, we invited everyone to attend this banquet with the purpose of having Adeline and Natalia apologize to Ms. Schneider and give her justice!
After speaking, Adeline and Natalia walked onto the stage.
Adeline recounted how she actively provoked Briana, bought online trolls to attack Briana, and spread rumors about her.
“Ms. Schneider, I knew I was wrong, I hope you can forgive me!”
Natalia took the microphone and looked towards Briana as she spoke, “Ms. Schneider, I saw Adeline being taken to the police station and felt anxious, so I foolishly decided to throw paint at you. Now, thinking back on it, I still feel guilty.”
In order to express my apology, I specifically had someone buy a bucket of paint. If my apology doesn’t satisfy you, you can pour this bucket of paint on me, and I will absolutely not have any complaints!
The conversation between the mother and daughter made the people present start whispering, with expressions full of mockery and disdain.
They did not despise what they did, after all, such behind–the–scenes activities that are not to be seen are common in every family. It’s just that they didn’t expect them to be so foolish, being caught and exposed, and now they have to publicly apologize, which is so embarrassing.
The gaze from the crowd made Adeline feel as if she was being stripped naked, and every second was torture.
Briana looked at them indifferently, knowing that what they were
going through now was not even one–tenth of the online abuse she had endured.
