“What does it mean?”
“If I help you cure your leg, we will get divorced. It’s a win–win situation. If you are not willing to seek treatment, I will also file for divorce!”
Maxim’s eyes instantly turned as cold as snow, “Briana, how dare
Briana laughed and said, “Why wouldn’t I dare?! It’s your own choice to give up on treating your leg and wallow in self–pity. Why should I risk my whole life for you? If you want to go crazy, go crazy on your own!”
After speaking, Briana turned around and left directly.
After arriving at the Yoder Group, Briana pondered for a moment and decided to give Norma a call.
After Briana told her about Maxim’s unwillingness to treat his leg, she drove straight back to the villa.
She had just finished taking a shower and was about to have a meal when Maxim came back angrily.
“Why did you tell Grandma that I didn’t continue treating my leg?!”
Briana put down her chopsticks and calmly locked eyes with Maxim, enunciating each word, “Anyway, Grandma will find out sooner or later. Is there any difference between telling her now and telling her later?”
Maxim’s face turned pale, as he struggled to suppress his anger.
“You did a great job!”
Briana smiled faintly and said slowly, “If you don’t continue treating your leg, I don’t have a reason to stay here either. I will move out tonight.”
“Did you dare?”
“You can see if I dare or not!”
Maxim took a deep breath and said coldly, “I can continue treating your leg, but the condition is that we don’t get divorced.”
Briana rolled her eyes, a coldness evident in her gaze. “Maxim, whether you treat yourself or not is your own business. Trying to use this matter as a condition to threaten me will only make me look down on you!”
Seeing Maxim’s angry expression, Briana also lost her appetite and stood up, saying, “Whether you treat it or not, it’s not me who will suffer. If Kiley abandons you like three years ago, it will serve you right!”
After speaking, she went straight to the bedroom and started packing her things.
Halfway through tidying up, Maxim walked in.
“I would continue treating the leg, and you cannot move away either!”
Briana rolled her eyes silently, throwing the neatly arranged clothes onto the bed. She grumbled impatiently, “Couldn’t you have done it earlier? You need someone to coax you while you treat your leg, you’re
After this incident, the two of them returned to their peaceful days as before.
Soon, Norma’s birthday arrived.
During this period, the two of them did not mention the matter of Norma’s birthday gift again. However, they both knew that it was impossible to give it together.
Briana left work early and went to the store to pick up the diamond bracelet she had reserved several months in advance. She then went straight to the Harmony Villa.
Norma didn’t want to make a big fuss, but this year being her seventieth birthday, she reluctantly invited many prominent figures from the business community in Bridenville, thanks to Reese and
When Briana walked into the living room of Harmony Villa, there were already many guests inside.
Kendra was talking to Kiley when she immediately spotted Briana. She directly frowned and averted her gaze as if she hadn’t seen her.
Briana didn’t mind and went straight to find Norma.
Norma saw her and a kind smile appeared on her face. “Briana, you finally came. I thought you had forgotten my birthday.”
Briana handed out the brocade box in her hand and smiled, saying, “How could I forget, Grandma? Happy birthday!”
Norma received a brocade box and opened it to find a diamond
bracelet inside. She immediately smiled with delight.
“Briana still knew my preferences, and I really liked it. Thank you, Briana!”
Norma immediately put the diamond bracelet on her hand, and everyone understood the significance of Briana in Norma’s heart.
“By the way, where is Maxim? Why didn’t he come with you?”
