“Okay, okay… I’ll listen to you.”
The servant pushed the eight–layered cake over, and after everyone sang a birthday song for Norma, she symbolically cut the cake and then pulled Isaac aside to talk.
Briana was filled with confusion in her eyes, as she had never heard of Norma having a grandson before.
“Mr. Yoder, what is the relationship between this man and you?”
Maxim looked indifferent and said, “He is my uncle’s son, my cousin.”
Briana frowned, “How come I didn’t know you had an uncle?”
“Before you returned to the Schneider family, my uncle and aunt had already passed away in a car accident. Shortly after that, Isaac left Bridenville, leaving behind a letter. So it’s normal that you didn’t know.”
After all, he didn’t expect that Isaac would come back.
Briana didn’t continue to inquire, after all, Maxim seemed to have an ordinary relationship with this cousin.
After ten o’clock in the evening, when the guests had left, Norma called Briana and Maxim over.
“Isaac, this was your cousin Maxim and his wife Briana.”
Isaac’s gaze fell upon the wheelchair that Maxim was sitting in, and a
hint of curiosity flickered in his eyes.
“Maxim, what happened to your leg?”
Maxim looked indifferent and said, “I had a car accident recently and got injured.”
Isaac remained silent for a few seconds and then said, “It’s okay, with the advancements in medical conditions nowadays, you will definitely get better.”
After speaking, he looked at Briana and a gentle smile curved his lips, “Hi, Briana.”
Briana couldn’t understand why, but being close to Isaac made her feel uncomfortable. However, she couldn’t pinpoint where this feeling came from.
Norma smiled and said, “Isaac, you just came back, you must be tired. You should go back and rest first. The villa where your parents used to live, I have someone go there regularly to clean. You can go straight there and stay.”
Speaking of Isaac’s parents, Norma couldn’t help but tear up.
Isaac squatted in front of her and smiled, saying, “Grandma, I’m going back first. Tomorrow, I’ll go see my parents first and then come to see you.”
Isaac bid farewell to everyone one by one and then left the Harmony Villa.
Norma glanced at Kendra, who had a gloomy expression on her face,
and said in a flat tone, “Alright, it’s been a long night, and I’m tired too. You all should go back and rest.”
Kendra originally asked Maxim and Briana to stay, intending to discuss their divorce openly. However, she no longer had the mood and turned around, leaving the Harmony Villa.
On the way back, Briana noticed that Maxim was constantly emitting a low pressure around him and couldn’t help but say, “Mr. Yoder, don’t you like your cousin?”
Maxim’s cold gaze fell upon her, “Do you like this type?”
Briana was a little surprised, “Why would you ask that?”
A hint of mockery flashed in Maxim’s eyes, “When he greeted you just now, your eyes were practically glued to him.”
Briana frowned, she was just wondering why she felt uncomfortable being close to Isaac at that time.
After Maxim said that, she suddenly realized the reason why she was uncomfortable at that time.
She sensed danger in Isaac!
Although this man had been trying his best to conceal it, there was still a faint but dangerous aura emanating from him.
He was definitely not simple!
Seeing that Briana remained silent, Maxim’s coldness in his eyes grew even stronger. “Briana, I warn you, you are not suitable for him, it’s
