After a long silence, Briana finally spoke, “Mr. Joyce, I appreciate your affection, but I’m not planning to consider matters of the heart
Grayson nodded, “I know, I can wait for you, wait for the day you plan to start a new relationship.”
Briana pursed her lips, deciding to make her point a bit clearer.
“Mr. Joyce, I hoped you wouldn’t wait for me, because I also didn’t know if I would ever want to start a new relationship again. You deserve someone better.”
“In short, I really appreciate your help over the past two days… So, was it a lie when you said your family wanted to get into the clothing industry?”
Surprise flashed in Grayson’s eyes, he didn’t expect that she still remembered this matter.
“No, this matter is real, and wanting to pursue you is also real.”
“If there was anything in the future in the clothing industry that needed my help, I would definitely do my best to assist Mr. Joyce. However, when it came to feelings, I was destined to be unable to respond to Mr. Joyce.”
Grayson’s face was filled with disappointment, he gave a bitter smile and said, “Actually, I knew from the start that you would reject me, but I still wanted to try. Since you really don’t like me, I won’t pester you.”
Hearing this, Briana finally breathed a sigh of relief. She didn’t plan to
try with Grayson for another reason – Grayson was Melody’s cousin. If they really started dating and then broke up, things might become awkward with Melody.
“Mr. Joyce, thank you, you really are a good person, you will definitely meet a better girl.”
“Was I just friend–zoned?”
Briana quickly explained, “No, I was genuinely complimenting you, definitely not friend–zoning you!”
Grayson looked up at Briana and slowly said, “Could you call me Grayson again?”
Upon returning to MY Corporation, Briana immediately called Melody into her office.
“Melody, shouldn’t you explain to me about Grayson’s matter?”
Surprise flashed in Melody’s eyes as she exclaimed, “Grayson confessed to you?!”
“I guess so.”
“He always felt he wasn’t good enough for you, I didn’t expect him to actually muster the courage to confess!”
Seeing the excitement in Melody’s eyes, Briana said coldly, “I’ve already rejected him.”
“Oh.” There was no surprise in Melody’s eyes. “I told him from the start that you weren’t into his type, but he still wanted to give it a try.”
Briana glared at her. “If you dare to do this again in the future, I will deduct your year–end bonus!”
Melody hastily tugged at her sleeve, “No, I barely have a little money to buy New Year’s goods during the New Year. If you deduct my bonus, isn’t that equivalent to taking my life?!”
Briana laughed in amusement, “You do know how to use idioms.”
“Anyway, no matter what, you couldn’t deduct my money.”
“As long as you were honest, I certainly wouldn’t deduct.”
“Fine, go back to where you came from and don’t introduce me to anything blindly in the future!”
After Melody left, Briana called William and Charlotte in.
“You went back and packed your things, you were to accompany me on a business trip the next day, which was expected to last about a week.”
After William and Charlotte left, Briana picked up the document and continued reading.
On the other side, Charlotte found a secluded place and made a phone call.
“Hello, Ms. Schneider asked me to go on a business trip with her tomorrow.”
Something was said over there. Charlotte nodded and said, “Okay, I understand *
Early the next morning. Briana had already left on a business trip with William and Charlotte

He told Maxim about this, and Maxim immediately said, “Go find out where she is now!
