Briana’s heart skipped a beat, and she quickly said, “You have such a vivid imagination. I really just wanted to take a walk alone, it’s not because of your words just now that made me overthink, right?!”
After a few seconds, Madeline finally spoke, “Well, take your time to think, I’ll go take a shower first.”
Upon hearing Madeline’s fading footsteps, Briana finally breathed a sigh of relief, and Maxim emerged from the shadows, though his expression was rather grim.
“Briana, am I really that unbearable?!”
“Mr. Yoder, your current identity is my ex–husband. What would others think if they saw you?”
Maxim frowned, “Can’t we meet the ex–husband anymore?”
“It’s not that we couldn’t meet, it’s just not appropriate in the middle of the night.”
Maxim sneered, “Huh, it’s appropriate for Hector to come find you in the middle of the night, but it’s not appropriate for me to come?”
“Of course, he was my friend. If you’re okay, you should leave quickly.”
Seeing Briana’s disdainful expression, Maxim’s eyes flickered with a touch of coldness.
“Briana, you shouldn’t be too excessive!”
Briana gave him a disdainful look and said, “Me, overreacting?! You showed up at my doorstep in the middle of the night, and I didn’t call- the police to arrest you. You should be grateful!”
“Alright, I had to go to work tomorrow morning, I don’t have time to argue with you. Don’t come looking for me if there’s nothing important.”
After speaking, Briana turned around and walked straight into the villa, slamming the door shut.
As she walked into the living room, she immediately saw Madeline standing not far away, looking at her with a half–smile on her face.
Briana was startled, “Why haven’t you taken a shower yet?”
“I was waiting for you, hurry up and tell me, who was the person outside the door just now?”
Briana’s gaze was somewhat distracted, “Who did you say? I didn’t see anyone.”
Madeline smiled and gestured to leave. “The person shouldn’t have left yet, I should still be able to see them if I open the door now.”
Briana quickly grabbed her and said helplessly, “Alright, alright, I’ll tell you everything!”
“Spill it!” Madeline urged, her eyes twinkling with gossip.
“It was my ex–husband.”

Madeline paused for a moment, then frowned and said, “Wasn’t he just having dinner with your sister before? Why is he here now? Does he still want to continue his relationship with you?!”
“Your imagination was truly rich.”
“Could a man have any other business when he came to find a
Briana pondered for a moment and slowly said, “Perhaps he was just bored.”
“Can’t you think of something good?”
“For example, he liked you!”
Briana remained silent for a moment and calmly said, “He couldn’t have liked me.”
Madeline frowned and asked, “Why are you so lacking in confidence?”
“It’s not that I lack confidence, it’s just because I know him very well. We had a secret marriage for three years, and he never fell in love with me. Can he suddenly fall in love after getting a divorce?”
Madeline was choked for a moment and was unsure how to respond.
After all, she was not sure what was going on with Briana and Maxim’s marriage, and it was not appropriate for her to pass judgment.
“Never mind, there are plenty of men out there. After leaving, I can have even more men!”
