Briana frowned and remained silent for a moment before speaking, “I will come over after work.”
I hope that after Briana came, she could resolve the unpleasantness between the two of them, so that all the employees in the company would not have to be on edge.
As soon as it was time to get off work, Briana immediately drove to the Yoder Group.
This was her first time coming to the Yoder Group. Previously, the two of them had a secret marriage. Maxim had clearly stated that he didn’t want her to come to the Yoder Group to find him, and she didn’t want to bother herself either.
Rayan came downstairs to pick up Briana. “Mr. Yoder is still in a meeting, I’ll take you to his office and wait for him there.”
Briana looked indifferent and said, “No need, just take me directly to the meeting room.”
With Briana’s insistence, Rayan still brought her to the meeting room.
“Ms. Schneider, did you drink water or some other beverage?”
Briana waved her hand and said, “I don’t want anything to drink. You go ahead and do your thing, don’t worry about me.”
“Okay, if you have anything, just give me a call.”
An hour after Maxim had finished the meeting, he just left the
conference room when Rayan approached and asked, “Mr. Yoder, has Ms. Schneider arrived?”
“Which Ms. Schneider?”
“Ms. Briana Schneider.”
“Where is she now?”
“The reception room.”
Maxim turned his wheelchair and went straight to the meeting room. As he pushed open the door, a hint of surprise flashed in his eyes.
Briana was sleeping on the table.
He turned his head and looked at Rayan, whispering, “Go get a blanket.”
Five minutes later, Maxim slowly wheeled his wheelchair over to Briana’s side and gently placed the blanket he had in his hands over her.
Briana slept lightly and woke up in the blink of an eye.
Seeing Maxim, she had a look of surprise in her eyes, with a misty and confused gaze, clearly not fully awake yet.
“Mr. Yoder, have you finished driving?”
Maxim looked indifferent and said, “Hmm, what do you want from me?”
Briana was now fully awake and looked at Maxim, saying, “I heard Dr. Waylon say that you told him not to come and treat your leg anymore. Why?”
“No reason, just didn’t want to be treated anymore.”
Briana’s eyes flickered with disbelief as she furrowed her brow and said, “Mr. Yoder, do you really want to go through the experience you had three years ago again?”
Three years ago, when Maxim had a car accident and became partially paralyzed, the shareholders of the Yoder Group took advantage of the situation and seized power. Maxim’s uncle took away the position of the president of the Yoder Group from Maxim.
At that time, Reese was also caught up in his own troubles, leaving Maxim feeling down for a long period of time. It was only after his leg gradually started to recover that he slowly managed to regain control of the Yoder Group from his uncle.
Maxim looked cold and devoid of any warmth in his eyes. “Three years ago was three years ago, and now is now. I won’t let the events of three years ago happen again!”
“Why didn’t you agree to treat your leg?!”
Maxim’s hand tightened involuntarily around the armrest of the wheelchair as he coldly said, “It’s none of your business!”
Briana’s eyes flashed with anger. “How can it have nothing to do with me? We agreed before that once your leg is healed, we would get a divorce. Now that you refuse to treat your leg, are we supposed to be bound together for the rest of our lives?!”
As her words fell, Maxim sneered, “Finally revealing your true intentions, you only want my leg to heal so you can escape from me!”
Briana was speechless, frowning at Maxim.
“Have you not had a fever recently?”
