On the way back to Melody’s place after finishing their meal, Briana remembered the phone call from Maxim earlier today and casually said, “By the way, Oliver wanted to take me out for dinner today.”
Melody frowned, her eyes filled with impatience.
“Don’t bother with him anymore in the future. I have already made it clear to him that I won’t be with him anymore, but he clings to me like a piece of adhesive plaster that can’t be shaken off!”
Briana nodded, “Hmm, no matter what choice you make, I will support you.”
After dropping Melody off at home, Briana went straight back to the villa.
Maxim sat in the living room, clearly waiting for her.
Briana walked over and sat down next to him, “Mr. Yoder, did you have something to wait for me?”
“In a while, it will be Grandma’s birthday. Do you have any ideas for Grandma’s birthday gift?”
Briana fell silent for a moment and nodded, “Hmm, I had already thought about it. Mr. Yoder, what do you plan to give?”
Maxim frowned at her, “Didn’t we send one together?”
Briana’s eyes flickered with surprise, “In the past, we used to send
them separately every year.”
“Then let’s start giving together from this year.”
Briana hesitated for a moment and said, “We had agreed before that once your leg got better, we would get divorced. There’s no need to be together…”
Maxim interrupted her coldly before she could finish speaking, “Are you so sure that my legs can be cured? Don’t forget, Dr. David said I would never be able to stand again!”
“Don’t worry, your leg will definitely get better!”
Seeing the determination in her eyes, Maxim’s face was filled with coldness.
“I really don’t know where you got your confidence from!”
Hearing the sarcasm in Maxim’s tone, Briana couldn’t help but say, “I told you your leg would get better, why aren’t you happy? Don’t you want to stand up again?”
Maxim remained silent, his face still terrifyingly cold.
After a moment of silence, Briana stood up and said, “If there’s nothing else, I’ll go back to my room.”
Maxim looked up at her and said slowly, “Since you mentioned divorce, haven’t you had a single moment of hesitation?”
Facing his intense gaze, Briana lowered her eyes and involuntarily tightened the hand by her side.
After a while, Briana spoke firmly, “No.”
As soon as the words fell, Maxim emitted a chilling and intimidating aura, causing the temperature in the entire living room to rapidly drop.
Briana knew he was angry, but she did not regret her response.
She didn’t want to leave herself any room, nor did she want to become the humble Briana who was completely devoted to Maxim in the past.
“I went back to the room first, you should rest early too.”
In the following days, Briana didn’t see Briana again at the villa. She originally thought that he was on a business trip, but suddenly received a call from Wyatt.
“Briana, what’s going on with Maxim? He told me that I don’t have to give him special treatment anymore.”
Briana frowned, “I’m not sure either. I’ll go and ask, I’ll call you back later.”
Briana made several phone calls to Maxim, but he didn’t answer. So, she had to dial Rayan’s number.
“Rayan, has Mr. Yoder been on a business trip these days? I heard from Dr. Waylon that he told him not to give him special treatment anymore in the future.”
There was a moment of silence over there, and then Rayan whispered, “Ms. Schneider, the president didn’t go on a business trip. He has been staying at the company these days. Did you have a fight?”
Briana recalled and wondered if Maxim was angry because of what he said that night.
“It wasn’t really a fight, just a little unpleasantness happened.”
Rayan was on the verge of tears as he held his phone, was it really just
a little unpleasant?!
Recently, Maxim has been in a very bad mood, and the entire executive office has been very low. Every time the department managers come to report their work, they are scolded miserably. Lately, they all wish they could hide and hope that Mr. Yoder doesn’t see them.
“The president’s condition has been off lately… Ms. Schneider, why don’t you come over and take a look…”
