Maxim put away his phone and looked up at Kiley, who had a face full of grievances.
If it were in the past, he would have gone up to coax her, but now he just feels a bit annoyed.
“Kiley, I had dinner with you today to thank you for your efforts for Grandma’s birthday banquet. There was nothing unwilling about it.”
Kiley chuckled bitterly, “Even if you divorced Briana, I still wouldn’t have a chance, right?”
She lowered her gaze, her hand by her side involuntarily tightening. She could have lost to anyone, but why did it have to be Briana? She was unwilling to accept it!
Maxim remained silent for a few seconds before speaking, “Kiley, I only see you as a sister now.”
Tears welled up in Kiley’s eyes as she said, “Maxim, I can never see you as my brother. I have been with you, I have had feelings for you, and I can’t go back to being just your sister. If I hadn’t been stubborn all this time, if I had come back earlier, would you not have fallen in love with Briana?”
“Kiley, there are no ‘ifs‘ in this world.”
“But Briana didn’t love you, and you got divorced.”
Maxim’s face turned a bit cold, and he said slowly, “There is just a misunderstanding between us. Once the misunderstanding is cleared up, we will be together again.”
Kiley shook her head, “You don’t know her. Once she has made a decision, she won’t change her mind.”
She made so much effort to make them divorce, she will definitely not let them reconcile!
“It had nothing to do with you.”
Maxim looked coldly at Briana, with a chill emanating from his eyes.
He had never looked at himself with such eyes before, and Kiley could only feel a constant pain in her chest, almost drowning her.
She stood up and took a deep breath, saying, “Maxim, I’m tired. Can you take me back home?”
Maxim didn’t say anything and got up, turned around, and walked out of the restaurant.
On the way back, Kiley kept shedding tears, but Maxim didn’t comfort her like he used to.
When the car stopped in front of the Schneider’s house, Kiley turned her head and looked at him with teary eyes, “Maxim, I will wait for you, I won’t give up!”
After saying that, Kiley got off the car and left, as if she was afraid that Maxim would say something that would make her even more heartbroken.
Maxim drove to the villa and saw that it was pitch black inside. He called Rayan and found out that Briana had already moved to a villa in the north of the city.
He turned the steering wheel and went straight to the villa in the north of the city. Just as he stopped at the door, he saw Hector knocking on the door, holding a plate of fruits in his hand. Briana quickly opened
the door and let him in.
Maxim’s hand gripping the steering wheel tightened involuntarily, anger evident on his face.
It hadn’t been long since the divorce, and she was shamelessly having an affair with Hector!
That was really great!
He dialed Rayan’s phone and said coldly, “Find something for Hector to do immediately! It’s best to make him leave Bridenville right away!”
In the living room of the villa, Briana, Madeline, and Hector were playing Landlord.
Madeline and Hector only found out about each other knowing Briana half an hour ago. In addition, the two of them just collaborated on a movie, so Madeline invited Hector to come and hang out.
Suddenly, Hector’s phone rang.
Just after the call connected, his face immediately changed.
“I suddenly had something urgent to attend to, let’s reschedule for next time.”
Seeing Hector looking anxious, Briana nodded and said, “Alright, you go and attend to your tasks first.”
After Hector left, the two of them didn’t continue playing cards. They tidied up the table and sat on the sofa to watch TV.
“Briana, does Hector have a crush on you?”
Briana was eating watermelon when she heard the words and choked.
After finally managing to swallow the watermelon, she turned her head and looked at Madeline with a surprised expression, “Have you been watching too many romantic dramas lately?”
“No, do you know how aloof Hector usually is? On set, besides filming, he hardly says a word. If someone tries to chat with him, although he may exchange a few words, he always keeps his distance.”
“Even though I filmed a movie with him, I rarely saw him smile.”
When they were playing Landlord just now, the smile on Hector’s face was completely genuine, completely different from his usual cold and aloof self.
