He had wanted to tell her about his feelings for her, but he didn’t want to cause her any trouble.
Forget it, let it be.
Just as Hector was about to pull his clothes from Briana’s hands, a sudden roar of an airplane overhead sounded.
The two looked up and saw a helicopter hovering overhead.
The next second, the cabin door opened, and immediately a person wearing a life jacket slowly descended, hanging by a life belt.
When he was about four or five meters away from the water surface, Maxim saw two people in the water, their faces terribly gloomy.
Seeing it was Maxim, a flash of shock passed through Briana’s eyes, along with an indescribable tremor.
Wasn’t he supposed to be in Bridenville?!
Could it be that they knew it was raining heavily in Vertown and specifically came to find me?
Thinking of this possibility, her heartbeat uncontrollably quickened, as if something was breaking through the ground within her heart.
Maxim, with a darkened face, stopped not far from the two, threw a lifebelt to Briana, and coldly said, “Tie it on yourself!”
Briana handed the life belt to Hector, “You go up first.”
Before Hector had a chance to speak, Maxim, unable to bear it any
longer, exclaimed, “Briana!”
Briana looked up at him, “Hector couldn’t swim.”
Maxim’s cold gaze fell on him, devoid of any warmth in his eyes.
Hector wanted to refuse, but Briana directly tied the life belt around him.
Maxim grabbed the life jacket on Hector and ordered the people above to start pulling up the life jacket.
Five minutes later, Hector was rescued onto the helicopter.
Maxim’s expression was icy, “I didn’t come for you, saving you was just a side task.”
Descending slowly into the air about ten meters above the water surface, Maxim was about to throw the lifebelt to Briana. However, catching sight of the scene in the distance out of the corner of his eye. his face suddenly turned pale.
He pulled a dagger from his bag, cut the rope directly, and plunged straight into the water.
Briana paused, still not understanding why Maxim did what he did, when she distinctly felt the water flow beside her become more rapid.
She turned her head and saw a huge wave rushing towards her direction quickly.
In the next second, her wrist was abruptly seized, and Maxim was pulling her swiftly towards the direction of the current.
However, the speed of the giant wave was so fast that it swept the two of them away in an instant…
From the helicopter, Hector witnessed this scene, his heart
involuntarily skipped a beat, as endless fear and guilt overwhelmed him.
He was about to jump off the helicopter when he turned around, but was stopped by Rayan.
“Are you insane?! Jumping down now is suicide!”
After the pilot had closed the hatch, the entire helicopter cabin fell into silence.
Rayan quickly dialed a number and said, “The president has been swept away by a huge wave, send a rescue team immediately!”
Hector sat blankly in the chair, like a sculpture that had lost its soul.
Soon, the news that Briana and Maxim had been swept away by a huge wave reached Rosecliff Village.
Upon knowing, the faces of Charlotte and William turned extremely ugly
With a face full of regret, William said, “If only I had stopped Ms. Schneider when she was leaving, she wouldn’t have had an accident!”
Charlotte sighed, “She is our boss, we only have the right to follow her orders. Can we really interfere with her decisions?”
Seeing that William was no longer speaking, Charlotte said, “I’m going out for some fresh air.”
The rain gradually lessened, and Charlotte found a quiet corner, taking out a spare phone to make a call.
“Boss, Briana was swept away by the waves, it’s unlikely she could have survived.”
