A week later, Briana indeed received the divorce certificate.
The moment she received it, she didn’t know what she felt inside. It wouldn’t be accurate to say she was extremely happy, but there was a sense of things falling into place.
She put away the divorce certificate, got up and started packing her things. She still planned to move to the villa in the north of the city, which was closer to her workplace.
As for this villa, since Maxim had already given it to her, there shouldn’t be any problem if she sold it.
After putting the villa up for sale in the second–hand market, Briana moved to a villa in the north of the city.
What surprised her was that she actually ran into Hector.
Hector’s gaze fell upon her suitcase, with a hint of anticipation in his
“Got divorced, so I moved here.”
The news of her divorce with Maxim would eventually spread, so there was nothing to hide.
Hector paused for a moment, then a glimmer of joy flashed in his eyes.
“Briana, actually there’s something I’ve been wanting to tell you. I was next to your villa…”
A sudden phone ring interrupted his words.
After Briana finished the call, she looked at Hector and said, “I have something to do now, let’s talk another day.”
Watching Briana hurriedly leave with her suitcase, Hector’s eyes flashed with a hint of disappointment, and he turned and walked into the adjacent villa.
Back at the villa, Briana opened the mailbox and clicked on the latest email to start working on it. By the time she finished processing it, it was already past 7 o’clock in the evening.
She picked up her phone and was about to order takeout when Madeline called.
“Briana, my movie has wrapped up, and I am currently in Bridenville. Let’s grab some late–night snacks together!”
Madeline used to enjoy eating something before bedtime, and she had the kind of metabolism that allowed her to eat without gaining weight. Before she became famous, she used to have a late–night snack every evening. However, once she gained popularity, her manager prohibited her from eating before bed, fearing that she would gain weight and not look good on camera.
Since then, Madeline developed a habit of treating herself to a late- night snack after filming a movie or TV show.
“I hadn’t eaten dinner yet.”
“That feeling was great, I didn’t eat either. I will pick you up now, and we will go directly to the most expensive restaurant in Bridenville. It’s on me!”
Briana couldn’t help but smile and said, “It seems like this movie made a lot of money.”
“There wasn’t much, just a small goal, about one–tenth of it!”
“Hahaha, send me the address and I will come pick you up.”
Hanging up the phone, Briana sent her location and got up to tidy up the living room.
I hadn’t come back for a while, and the living room had already gathered dust.
Just as I finished wiping the table, the doorbell rang.
After Briana opened the door, she quickly stepped aside, leaving Madeline’s attempt to hug her in vain.
“Briana, I never expected that you had learned how to hide. Do you know how many people wanted to have my embrace?”
Briana raised an eyebrow and said, “Then go and bring happiness to those who want to be hugged by you, I am not fortunate enough to enjoy it.”
“Hmph, I was angry!”
Seeing her pouting, Briana couldn’t help but smile and said, “Don’t make that expression with such a cold face, the contrast is so strong.”
Madeline spoke with a hint of annoyance, “I had originally wanted to pursue the cute and adorable route when I debuted, but my manager held me back. God knows how hard I had to work to not let my fans
down when I saw them.”
Her agent said that this face was going for the cool and aloof goddess route, and would definitely gain a lot of fans.
Later, it was proven that the agent was right. What else could be done? We could only continue pretending along the way.
“If your fans knew what you were like in your daily life, I wonder if they would still be your fans.”
“Maybe they would have liked me more, after all, my face is loved by everyone, and flowers bloom when they see me.‘
Watching her enchanted expression, Briana couldn’t help but burst into laughter.
“What are you laughing at?! I’m serious, there was a man recently who was relentlessly pursuing me. He even invested in ‘My Timeless and Endless Love‘ just to have a meal with me. But he’s not my type, I prefer someone like Maxim, a cold and dominant CEO, he’s the one who captures my heart!”
