Does this mean she should blame herself for making him unable to control his feelings?
“I didn’t want there to be another time!”
She used gauze to bandage his arm and said lightly, “You saved me today, thank you. I will treat you to a meal another day.“.
Maxim raised an eyebrow and extended his freshly bandaged arm in front of her, “I’m already injured, and you think a meal can just dismiss
“What do you want then?”
“Recently, my hand got injured, which affected my work. You need to compensate me.”
Briana remained silent for a few seconds and nodded, “Alright, how much money do you want?”
Maxim’s face turned a bit cold, and his tone became somewhat gritted, “Do you think I lack money?!”
“Isn’t it just money that you lost from not being able to work?”
Seeing Briana’s nonchalant expression, Maxim furrowed his brows and said, “I didn’t ask for money, I wanted you to move to Glamor Villa to take care of me before I recovered from my injury.”
Briana frowned, “I can’t agree to this request, but I can hire a caregiver
She looked up at him and said calmly, “Mr. Yoder, to be honest, I don’t want to have much to do with you. I also want to start my own new life, so I hope you won’t disturb me in the future.”
She really gave up on Maxim, and she really didn’t want to get entangled with him anymore.
Maxim’s face instantly turned extremely ugly, “Start a new life?!”
Briana nodded, “Hmm.”
She was about to tell Maxim about her intention to start a new relationship when her phone suddenly rang.
Seeing the flashing words “Grandma” on the screen, Briana suddenly remembered that she had made plans with Norma to go to the Harmony Villa for dinner.
She quickly answered the call and said apologetically, “Grandma, I’m sorry, something happened here, I’ll come over right away.”
Norma’s voice was gentle, “Hmm, no rush, I just wanted to ask where you are, be safe on the road.”
Briana put away her phone and looked at Maxim.
“Grandma called me to go to the Harmony Villa for dinner. If you’re free, let’s go together.”
After getting on the car, Maxim casually said, “You work at MY Corporation, have you ever met the founder Anna?”
Briana’s hand, hanging by her side, involuntarily tightened as she calmly spoke, “I am just a small employee. How could I possibly meet our company’s big boss? Why are you suddenly asking about her?”
A hint of meaning flashed in Maxim’s eyes as he slowly said, “I just think she’s quite impressive. It was just a case of an employee
plagiarism, and yet they managed to uncover the mastermind behind it, the CharmDress.”
Briana lowered her gaze and calmly said, “Indeed, it’s quite impressive.”
“As an employee of MY Corporation, aren’t you curious about what kind of person your company’s CEO was?”
Hearing the probing tone in Maxim’s voice, Briana calmly asked, “Mr. Yoder, what are you trying to convey?”
“I was just asking casually.”
“Then I can clearly tell Mr. Yoder that I was not curious, I just focused on my own tasks. The president’s personality has nothing to do with me.”
Maxim’s eyes darkened slightly, and he did not bring up the topic again.
The two of them arrived at the Harmony Villa in silence. When they got off the car, Maxim suddenly took her hand.
Briana was planning to break free when his deep voice echoed in her
“Do you want Grandma to notice that we got divorced?”
After a few seconds of silence, Briana said coldly, “We have never held hands before when we came to the Harmony Villa in the past, so it would be strange to suddenly hold hands now, wouldn’t it?”
