Briana frowned, “Kiley told you?”
Mallory sneered, “Don’t worry about who told me. Since you could do such a shameful thing, are you afraid of people talking about it?!”
“Mrs. Schneider, I think I need to remind you that we have already severed our relationship. Even if there is any disgrace, it’s not yours.”
Mallory’s face was livid with anger. Even though she had publicly severed ties with Briana, whenever Briana did something disgraceful, it was still the Schneider family that people whispered about behind their backs.
“I warned you, quit that job immediately. If I ever find out you’re working as a temp again, I will definitely not let you off the hook!”
Briana spoke in a mocking tone, “Whatever you want.”
After speaking, Briana hung up the phone, leaving Mallory fuming.
Her face was filled with anger, she was so furious that she almost threw her phone on the ground.
Kiley, who was standing by the side, quickly comforted her, “Mom, don’t be angry. My sister will definitely understand your painstaking efforts in the future.”
Mallory’s expression was icy, “I don’t need her understanding! I will personally go to your competition venue tomorrow. If she still refuses to obey, I will definitely make her regret it!”
“Mom, isn’t this not so good? After all, there are so many people on the scene, let’s save some face for sister.”
Mallory took a deep breath and slowly said, “Kiley, you don’t need to worry about this anymore. Just focus on preparing for the competition. Let’s eat.”
On the other side, Briana put down her phone, changed her clothes, and went downstairs to go out with Madeline.
The restaurant Madeline had chosen was also The Baking Whale. By the time the two arrived at the private room, Brycen had already arrived.
After greeting, Madeline was about to order when Brycen laughed and said, “Ms. Garcia, wait a moment, I have a friend coming, you won’t mind, will you?”
Madeline rolled her eyes inwardly. What was the point of asking her if she was willing now, when he had already made arrangements with others?
Madeline smiled and said, “Of course I don’t mind.”
Soon, the friend Brycen had mentioned arrived.
As soon as Maxim entered the box, Madeline’s face changed.
Brycen must have done it on purpose!
Knowing he would bring Briana along, he actually called Maxim over!
Thinking of this, Madeline’s face turned cold.
“Mr. Carney, what did you mean by this?”
Brycen still had a smile on his face, “Ms. Garcia, do you have a
problem with my friend?”
Madeline sneered, “You knew full well that Briana was uncomfortable with Mr. Yoder, yet you deliberately called him over. What were you thinking?!”
Just as Brycen was about to speak, Maxim’s cold voice rang out.
“It seemed that Ms. Garcia wasn’t too pleased with my arrival. In that case, I won’t bother you all any longer.”
Madeline remained silent with a cold expression, her eyes filled with
Brycen, who was sitting nearby, also stood up and said, “I’ll be leaving too, Ms. Garcia. Consider this meal as your treat.”
Briana tugged at Madeline’s sleeve, whispering, “Madeline, it’s okay, you don’t need to be so sensitive.”
Madeline turned to look at Briana, frowning as she spoke, “Briana, you don’t have to compromise yourself for me.”
Briana couldn’t help but laugh, “What’s there to feel wronged about? I don’t mind whoever comes.”
Seeing no sign of lying in her eyes, Madeline finally breathed a sigh of relief, “Alright then.”
Briana took the initiative to step back, and Brycen also smiled and said, “Still, Ms. Schneider is generous.”
Madeline gave him a glance, handed him the menu, “Mr. Carney, please order.”
