Sensing Maxim’s displeasure, Briana initially wanted to say a few words to lighten the mood, but then she remembered that she hadn’t yet decided whether to give each other another chance, so she lowered her gaze and didn’t speak.
Because they were the only two people in the entire restaurant, the food was served very quickly.
Although Maxim was upset that Briana didn’t want others to see them eating together, he still took the initiative to chat with Briana during the meal.
“Right, what was the main purpose of your business trip to Rosecliff Village?”
Briana swallowed the food in her mouth, her expression nonchalant as she said, “MY Corporation planned to collaborate with the fabric factory in Rosecliff Village, so they sent me to check it out.”
“Didn’t you say you were a cleaner last time? Does your company require cleaners to do this kind of work?”
After a few seconds of silence, she finally looked up at Maxim and said, “Did you really believe me when I said I was a cleaner?”
“Of course I didn’t believe it, so what exactly you are doing at MY Corporation?”
Briana took a sip of soup, looking calmly at Maxim and said, “You must have already investigated what I do at MY Corporation, haven’t
When she returned to MY Corporation, she had Melody create a fake employment record for herself. If anyone investigated in the HR department, they could only find that fake information.
Maxim frowned, “You just don’t trust me?”
Ever since he found out that she didn’t like him investigating her
affairs, he had not let Rayan continue the investigation. He would only occasionally ask Rayan to check her location.
Seeing the displeasure in his eyes, Briana’s hand unconsciously tightened around her chopsticks. She murmured, “I’m sorry, I misunderstood you.”
“Don’t worry, I won’t pry into things you don’t want to tell me in the future. After all, everyone has secrets they don’t want to share with others.”
Similarly, he also had some things he couldn’t tell Briana.
Briana felt that Maxim had indeed changed a lot. He never used to consider other people’s feelings, but now he was willing to take care of her emotions.
Thinking of this, Briana chuckled and said, “I was just an ordinary employee at MY Corporation, doing work similar to a secretary, I guess you could say I was an assistant.”
Maxim also knew that Briana didn’t graduate from high school, so this kind of job wasn’t difficult for her.
Thinking about how Briana was always criticized for not graduating from high school, Maxim looked at her with a serious expression and said, “Have you ever thought about finishing high school? It’s not too late for you to go to college at your current age.”
Surprise flashed in Briana’s eyes, then she shook her head and said, “No, a college diploma is of no use to me.”
Moreover, on the eve of the Schneider family finding her, she had already obtained her doctorate degree.
At that time, she agreed to attend high school because her master had admonished her not to appear too different from ordinary people. Therefore, she only agreed to enroll when Zane and Mallory suggested she attend high school.
After that incident happened, she never went back to continue her studies.
Maxim frowned, “Are you really planning to live your whole life with just a junior high school diploma?”
Although he didn’t mind, he didn’t want others to look down on Briana.
“Getting my university diploma seemed to make no difference to my life.”
“At the very least, when others mention you, they won’t say you didn’t even finish high school.”
Briana fell silent for a moment, her gaze becoming indifferent.
“Mr. Yoder, it seems you made a mistake.”
Leaving aside the fact that I haven’t agreed to start over with you, even if I had agreed, you wouldn’t have the right to demand that I change.
“If you don’t like people with only a middle school diploma, you can certainly find a girl with a university degree to be with. And if I were
to agree to go back to university just to gain your approval, would you then have even more demands for me to change in the future?”
A flash of displeasure crossed Maxim’s eyes, his voice dropping a few notches, “I was only trying to do what’s best for you.”
“I didn’t need it, I was very clear about what I wanted.”
Maxim didn’t say anything else, the meal that followed was somewhat silent between the two.
After finishing her meal, Briana declined Maxim’s offer to drive her back to the office and left immediately after saying goodbye to him.
Unexpectedly, just as she arrived at the company’s entrance, she ran into Kendra who was looking for her.
“Briana, let’s talk!”
