Briana furrowed her brow, “Is there something wrong?”
“Ms. Schneider knew once she went.”
After a few seconds of silence, Briana still went to see Maxim with Rayan.
“Mr. Yoder, what were you looking for me for?”
No sooner had the words left his mouth than a black card was handed to him.
“If you ever run out of money in the future, just use this card.”
Seeing his presumptuous expression, Briana realized that her act of carrying water earlier had led to his misunderstanding.
She pursed her lips, not taking the card.
“No, I have enough money to spend.”
“Do you need odd jobs to pay for it?”
Briana didn’t bother to explain, but began coldly, “Mr. Yoder, this is my business.”
“Briana, if you listen to me and re–enroll in college, you won’t have to do this kind of work.”
Detecting the subtle contempt in his tone, Briana frowned at him.
“Mr. Yoder, even working as a slave is my own business, and I don’t feel ashamed of it.”
“If you have a college diploma, there are more options!”
Briana nodded, “I won’t deny that what you’re saying is right, but I should have the right to choose my own life. I won’t listen to you and change myself.”
After speaking, Briana immediately turned around and left.
Maxim watched her retreating figure with a cold expression, a hint of anger flickering in his eyes.
Returning to the villa and seeing Madeline at home, Briana was somewhat surprised.
“You don’t have to attend today?”
“Well, this time is supposed to be used for rest, but because of this activity, I did not have a good rest, I have talked to my agent, and I will not do this activity in the future.”
“You really should get some rest. You’ve got that dark eye over.”
“No way, I feel like my attractiveness has decreased recently because I’ve been so tired. By the way, where did you go today?”
“Went out to handle some matters.”
Madeline nodded, not asking further, “Do you have plans tonight?”
“Nothing, what’s wrong?”
“Since there’s nothing going on, accompany me to dinner with Mr. Carney tonight, to thank him for helping me last time.”
“Alright, then I’ll go up and rest for a while.”
As soon as Briana went upstairs, Madeline called Brycen and asked
him out for dinner.
On the other hand, the design competition is still in full swing.
There were over 1300 contestants in the preliminary round, but only 600 would be selected to proceed to the next round.
It wasn’t until past six in the evening that the contestants advancing to the next round were finally determined.
The competition numbers of Kiley and Pamela were conspicuously among them.
Knowing the result, there was no surprise on Kiley’s face. The first round was scored on a percentage scale, and the gap between the contestants was very small. She scored 92.6, the same as a dozen other people.
Just as I got up and left the competition stage, I received a call from Mallory as soon as I returned to the dressing room.
“Kiley, you were fantastic today! Your dad and I saw the match results, your dad booked a private room at The Baking Whale, let’s have a good celebration as a family!”
After hanging up the phone, Kiley went to look for Maxim, only to be told by the staff that he had already left.
Kiley was filled with disappointment. In the past, no matter how late she stayed at the studio to paint, Maxim would always wait for her. His -attitude now was worlds apart from then.
Thinking of this, she felt even more upset.
After hesitating for a while, she still made a call to Maxim.
“Maxim, I advanced to the semi–finals. To celebrate with me, my parents have booked a private room at The Baking Whale. Would you like to come and have dinner together?”
“Congratulations, I had something going on tonight, so I didn’t go
