The man standing by the window, taking a phone call, raised an eyebrow and said, “I didn’t expect Iris to die in such a way, it’s really uninteresting. Alright, you can come back now.”
Briana had originally thought that she and Maxim would undoubtedly die when they were swept away by the huge wave, but unexpectedly, they were saved by a tree on the shore.
At that time, she and Maxim were swept ashore by a huge wave. Luckily, there was a tree nearby which she quickly clung to tightly, not letting go until the wave had passed, finally allowing herself to breathe a sigh of relief.
If it hadn’t been for the torrential rain causing the water to rise to the branches of the large tree, they would definitely have been swept further away.
After the two had rested, they slowly swam towards the shore.
After getting ashore, Maxim walked forward with a cold face, acting as if she didn’t exist.
Briana followed behind him, watching his retreating figure, a surge of indescribable emotions welling up in her heart.
It felt like gratitude, and also like relief.
If it weren’t for Maxim, she and Hector would have likely lost their
She quickly walked up to him and spoke seriously, “Mr. Yoder, thank you!”
A simple thank you seemed too light, but besides that, she didn’t know how to repay him.
Maxim gave her a cold look, his eyes brewing with towering anger.
“Briana, are you stupid?! Risking your own life for Hector, do you love him that much?!”
Briana paused for a moment, pursed her lips and said, “I didn’t risk my life for him, I didn’t expect such a big wave at the time.”
Maxim sneered, each word dropping like an icicle.
“When saving people, you didn’t even consider your own abilities! If I hadn’t arrived just in time, how many lives would you have risked?!”
Facing his anger, Briana just remained silent, not saying a word.
Maxim gave her a cold glance, “Why aren’t you speaking? Have you gone mute?!”
Briana looked up and met his gaze, “I indeed didn’t realize it would be this dangerous at first. If something like this happens again, you don’t have to worry about me. Whether I live or die, it’s my own fate.”
Maxim laughed in anger, his voice as cold as snow.
“Rest assured, if there’s a next time, I would only interfere with you if I were kicked in the head by a donkey!”
Seeing the anger in his eyes, Briana pursed her lips and lowered her head, not speaking anymore.
When the huge wave hit just now, she was terrified. She was not afraid of death, but she was afraid of causing Maxim to lose his life. with her.
She didn’t want to owe him, but every time she was in danger, he seemed to appear, saving her time and time again.
The two of them climbed for a while, and finally saw a house halfway up the slope.
The household was inhabited by an elderly couple. Briana briefly explained their situation and asked if they could stay for one night. After discussing it, the two old people agreed.
Upon entering the house, it wasn’t long before Mrs. Abbington found and handed over two relatively new sets of clothes to the two individuals.
“Miss, these are clothes from me and the old man. If you don’t mind, you should change into them. Otherwise, if you keep wearing your wet clothes, you might catch a cold later.”
Both of them were wearing clothes with patches, yet the clothes they were given were clean and tidy, indicating that these were clothes they were reluctant to wear on a regular basis.
Briana was somewhat touched, she took the clothes and said, “Thank you, Mrs. Abbington.”
“No need to thank me, you go change in the bedroom first, and then let your spouse change later.”
Realizing they had misunderstood her relationship with Maxim, Briana was about to explain when Maxim spoke up.
“Go change your clothes first.”
The the time the two had changed their clothes, Mrs. Abbington had already prepared the ginger soup
