The moment the words fell, the expressions on Grayson and Briana’s faces changed.
“Maxim, what did you mean by that?!”
In response to Briana’s questioning gaze, Maxim didn’t answer, but simply turned around and left.
For some reason, Briana felt a sense of unease.
“Mr. Joyce, you go ahead, I still have some things to do.”
Having said that, without caring about Grayson’s expression, Briana turned around and quickly followed in the direction Maxim had left.
When she arrived at the parking lot, she saw Maxim standing by the car, clearly waiting for her.
She quickly walked up to Maxim, gritted her teeth and said, “Maxim, shouldn’t you explain what you just said, what do you mean we’re not divorced?!”
No sooner had the words left his mouth than his waist was grabbed.
A flash of anger passed through Briana’s eyes, she lifted her head, about to curse him, when his handsome face suddenly magnified in front of her.
She wanted to dodge, but her chin was held by Maxim.
His lips descended in a kiss, aggressive and demanding. Briana felt enveloped by his icy presence.
She bit Maxim hard, but far from letting her go, he became even more brutally abusive on her lips.
Briana reached out to brace against his chest, struggling desperately but failing to budge his body even slightly.
Even though her strength was already much greater than that of an average man, she didn’t expect to have no chance of resistance in front of Maxim. She could only let him manipulate her.
It was only when he noticed that she was struggling to breathe that Maxim released her, coldly saying, “Will you provoke me with another man next time?”
Briana’s face turned ashen at his domineering tone. She wasn’t his possession, what gave him the right to talk to her like that.
She pushed Maxim away, wiping her lips with her hand as she coldly said, “We’re already divorced. You have no right to interfere, not even if I sleep with other men, let alone dating!”
Briana looked up to meet his angry gaze, and said word by word, “Why wouldn’t I dare? Maxim, you wouldn’t expect me to remain chaste for you after our divorce, would you?”
Seeing the mockery in her eyes, Maxim felt anger rising in his chest, almost reaching the point of explosion.
“Briana, you can give it a try. Any man who dares to touch you, I’ll make sure he won’t be able to be a man for the rest of his life!”
“You were simply a jerk!”
Maxim lowered his head to look at her, his eyes filled with anger, “If I see you with Grayson again, I guarantee you’ll receive news of Shen’s bankruptcy within three days!”
Briana coldly averted her eyes, not wanting to give him another glance.
After a long time, Briana’s emotions finally settled down.
“Maxim, what’s the deal with you saying you’re not divorced?! You didn’t fake a divorce certificate to deceive me, did you?!”
Maxim glanced down at her, his expression unchanging as he said, “Do you think I need to tell such a lie? If you don’t believe me, you can check for yourself at the courthouse!”
“Then why did you say that just now?”
“Because I didn’t want to see you pretending to be intimate with Grayson in front of me, it was annoying!”
Briana frowned, “You don’t have to look.”
Maxim sneered, “Briana, there’s no benefit for you in making me
Briana rolled her eyes, irritably saying, “Even if I did cheer you up, it doesn’t seem like I’d benefit from it, so why should I make you happy?”
After a few seconds of silence, he said in a deep voice, “I’ll take you
“No need, I took a taxi myself.”
She turned around and left, only to have her wrist grabbed after a few steps.
Noticing that his palm was very hot, Briana couldn’t help but frown, “Let go of me!”
“We held our ground here all night, or I could take you home, you choose
