She was about to speak when her hand was grasped by Grayson.
Briana stiffened for a moment, forcing herself not to pull her hand away. She didn’t really like physical contact with others.
“Mr. Yoder, I really was Briana’s boyfriend.”
No sooner had the words fallen than Maxim’s sharp gaze fell on his hand holding Briana’s.
“If you still want that hand of yours, I suggest you let her go right now.”
Grayson didn’t move, a faint smile playing at the corners of his mouth.
“I held my girlfriend’s hand, Mr. Yoder shouldn’t have had any right to interfere, right?”
Briana thought Grayson was truly brave. Did he even know who Maxim was, to dare provoke him like that?
Seizing the opportunity, she withdrew her hand, smiling as she said, “Grayson, sit down first.”
Grayson looked at her indulgently, “Okay.”
After they sat down, Maxim said coldly, “Briana, come sit here!”
Briana frowned at him, just about to speak, when Grayson began to talk.
“Mr. Yoder, I went to sit beside you
Maxim’s face instantly turned as black as the bottom of a pot, even Briana was taken aback, a strange thought emerging in her mind.
Grayson wasn’t crushing on Maxim, was he?
So you agreed to pretend to be my boyfriend, just to get a glimpse of Maxim?!
Maxim coldly stared at Briana, seeing her gaze darting back and forth between him and Grayson, he knew she must be up to no good.
“Mr. Joyce, I was not familiar with you.”
Grayson chuckled, stood up and said, “Once a stranger, twice an acquaintance. After a few more meals, we’ll be familiar.”
Briana increasingly felt that her thoughts were very likely, and had already supplemented a melodramatic scene in her mind.
Seeing Grayson really come over and sit next to him, Maxim gritted his teeth and said, “Grayson, if you want the Shen family to go bankrupt tomorrow, just keep sitting here!”
A shadow passed over Grayson’s eyes as he said, “Well, if the Shen family goes bankrupt, I can have Briana take me in.”
Briana almost spat out her water. She just wanted Grayson to play the role of a boyfriend who ate more and talked less, but he really could improvise.
However, seeing Maxim’s face almost freezing with cold, Briana felt refreshed again.
He deserved it for pestering me even after he got divorced!
Maxim’s icy gaze turned to the indifferent Briana, coldly saying, “Briana, you’re really something!”
Even though he knew she was acting, Maxim’s anger was successfully provoked.
Briana looked at him calmly, “Mr. Yoder, tonight is to thank you for saving me a few days ago. Order whatever you want, my boyfriend is paying.”
No sooner had the words fallen than Maxim sprang to his feet and strode quickly towards Briana.
Grayson sensed something was wrong and quickly stepped in front of Briana to block Maxim.
“Mr. Yoder, you…”
Before the words were even finished, they were coldly interrupted by Maxim.
His voice carried an unprecedented anger, like a provoked lion ready to pounce and bite the neck of its prey at any moment.
Feeling the powerful pressure from him, Grayson’s face changed, but he still continued to stand in front of Briana.
“Mr. Yoder, you’ve already divorced Briana, now she’s my girlfriend, please stay away from her!”
Maxim sneered, “Who told you I divorced her?!”
