Kiley patted her back and reassured, “Don’t worry, I will definitely not let Dad divorce you. I will go talk to him.”
“Okay, thank you for your hard work.”
“Mom, I will definitely not let this family fall apart.”
After speaking, Kiley got up and went directly to the Schneider Group to find Zane.
When Zane was at work today, he was once again given a hard time by the shareholders about the project, and he is currently feeling angry.
Seeing Kiley, he unconsciously frowned and asked, “Kiley, what are you here for?”
“Dad, I came over today to talk to you. I hope you won’t divorce mom.”
Zane frowned, his voice tinged with a hint of anger, “This is between your mother and me, don’t interfere.”
“This is not just a matter between the two of you, I am also a part of this family, and I do not agree with your divorce!”
Zane snorted coldly and said impatiently, “It was because of your mother that the Yoder Group’s project got ruined before. I’ve been facing the shareholders‘ anger at the company these days. We can get a divorce if you want, but she must make Maxim hand over the project to the Schneider Group again!”
“You knew very well that the relationship between Mom and Briana had reached a point where they couldn’t stand each other anymore.
You are just making it difficult for her, and she has tried to reach out to Briana several times in the past few days, but Briana refuses to forgive her!”
There was no warmth in Zane’s eyes. “This has nothing to do with me. If she is not capable of bringing the project back, I can only divorce her!”
Kiley took a deep breath and said slowly, “The project is impossible to retrieve, but if you don’t divorce Mom, I can help the Schneider Group secure more collaborations.”
Zane’s eyes flickered with surprise, and he immediately spoke, “If we can’t even retrieve the Yoder Group’s project, there’s no chance of having any further collaboration with other companies.”
Over the years, the Schneider Group has been on a decline, and that project was not just about making money.
As long as he could collaborate with the Yoder Group, Zane would grit his teeth and go for it, even if he didn’t make any money.
Holding onto the Yoder Group’s thigh tightly, when negotiating collaborations with other companies in the past, it would yield twice the result with half the effort.
“If I could secure collaborations with other companies and ensure that I earn no less than what I make working with the Yoder Group, Dad, would you be able to avoid divorcing Mom?”
Zane remained silent for a few seconds before speaking, “Alright, provided that you can do what you say.”
“It’s a deal!”
After Kiley left, Zane made a phone call.
“The divorce matter may have to be postponed, as there has been a little unexpected incident.
An angry female voice came from the other side, “Zane, how did you agree to this in the first place? Our son is already eight years old, are you going to let him grow up under the judgmental eyes of others? Are you reluctant to leave Mallory and Kiley?”
Zane quickly said, “Don’t worry, in my heart, you and our son are the top priority. I am now working hard to manage the Schneider Group for both of you.”
“Hehe, in the end, was it for us or for your other family? You know it yourself! The Schneider Group, you initially wanted to hand it over to Kiley, don’t think I don’t know!”
Zane frowned and said, “But that was before we had a son, right? Now that we have a son, the Schneider Group should naturally be handed over to him!”
“You had better walk the talk!”
The person on the other side directly hung up the phone. Zane couldn’t help but shake his head and sent her a text message.
“In the evening, I’ll see you and your son.”
In the evening, near the end of work, Briana received a message from Sophie.
“Ms. Schneider, I wanted to invite you for dinner tonight. Are you available?”
Briana pondered for a few seconds and replied with a simple “okay“.
After work, Briana drove directly to a hot pot restaurant with Sophie.
Sophie saw the prices on the menu and silently breathed a sigh of relief. It was a price she could afford.
The two of them ordered their dishes, and Sophie looked at Briana seriously and said, “Ms. Schneider, I really appreciate you. If it weren’t for you, I might have had to work for Riley for a long time.”
“No need to thank me, I didn’t help you for nothing. After all, I have to repay the money I lent you.”
Sophie pursed her lips and slowly said, “I know that you are paying me three times the market rate, so I am really grateful to you and I will definitely not let you down!”
Seeing the sincerity in her eyes, Briana smiled.
“I believe in you, and in the future, you will definitely be able to earn a salary that is many times higher than this. However, the condition is that you must stay true to your original intention and continue walking on this path.”
Sophie nodded, “Hmm, I will definitely do it. I hope one day I can be as amazing as you!”
“Go for it!”
After they finished eating, Briana left only after she took Sophie to the hospital.
Returning to the entrance of the villa, Briana saw that it was pitch black inside, and a hint of surprise flashed in her eyes.
