He was supposed to come over tonight to express his feelings to
Briana, but seeing her tired look, Hector decided to wait a bit longer and find a more suitable moment.
Briana opened the door and walked into the villa, the living room was pitch black, Madeline hadn’t returned from the event yet.
She simply didn’t turn on the lights, went straight upstairs, took a bath, and then went to sleep.
Since rejecting Maxim, Briana’s life had returned to its previous tranquility. Although they were in the same city, they had not seen each other since that day.
MY Corporation had a lot of issues to resolve. At first, Briana would occasionally daydream, but as she got busier, she seldom thought of Maxim.
After returning from Rosecliff Village, Charlotte resigned. Briana asked Melody to recruit a new female secretary for her, but they couldn’t find one that satisfied Briana, so the matter was left unresolved.
Half a month later, the design competition was officially held in Bridenville.
The day before the opening ceremony, Vincent Yearwood, the president of the Yearwood Group, invited all the judges to his house to discuss the competition.
Briana was delayed due to some issues, and by the time she arrived, the other judges had already left.
Upon seeing her, shock flashed in Vincent’s eyes.
“Are you Elia?!”
He knew Elia was from Bridenville, but he never imagined that Elia was actually Briana, the lost daughter of the Schneider family who had been found after missing for over a decade!
Didn’t they say she didn’t even graduate from high school?!
Briana nodded, “Hello, Mr. Yearwood.”
Vincent, being a man of the world, quickly composed himself and with a smile, said, “Ms. Schneider, please have a seat.”
After going over the steps he had discussed with the other judges, Vincent looked at Briana and said, “Ms. Schneider, is there anything you would like to add?”
Briana shook her head, “Mr. Yearwood, the plan you’ve come up with is already perfect, I have no other suggestions. However, for this competition, it should still be the same as before, the judges don’t need to show up, right?”
“Um, this time, even when the design drafts were submitted, they were only marked with the contestant’s number, no names appeared, and the contestant numbers were randomly drawn before the competition started, all in the name of fairness.”
“Alright, then I don’t have any questions.”
Vincent still found it hard to believe that Briana was actually Elia. He asked, “Ms. Schneider, does your family know you’re Elia?”
“I didn’t know, so I hoped Mr. Yearwood could keep this matter confidential for me. I didn’t want this to get out.”
Some time ago, Mallory held a press conference to publicly announce her break up with Briana. He had also heard about it. Would the
Schneider family regret it to their guts if they knew how excellent Briana was?
Vincent quickly said, “Rest assured, Ms. Schneider, I will definitely keep this matter a secret.”
“Thank you, Mr. Yearwood. If there’s nothing else, I’ll be on my way.”
“Alright, do you need me to have someone take you?”
“No need, I drove myself.
Briana got up and left, and as she started her car to leave, she just happened to pass by the car of Miss Pamela Yearwood from the Yearwood family.
Pamela returned home and saw her father sitting in the living room, looking thoughtful. She couldn’t help but ask, “Dad, who was that woman who just left our house?”
Vincent glanced at her and said, “Your idol, Elia.”
Disbelief filled Pamela’s eyes, “Elia is so young?! You’re not lying to me, are you?!”
At that moment, she was filled with regret. If she had known that person was Elia, she would have stopped her and asked for her autograph!
Vincent glanced at her irritably, “What benefit do I get from lying to
you?! She’s the same age as you, but now she’s a judge, and you’re just
It’s really frustrating to compare oneself with others. If he had such an outstanding daughter, he would definitely have his wife show her off every day. Who knows what the Schneider family was thinking?
Pamela glared at him, “What’s wrong with being a contestant? Do you think this design competition doesn’t require any standards?! Elia is a once–in–a–century genius. If you expect me to be as good as her, it would only happen if the Yearwood family’s ancestral grave was on fire!”
