Briana couldn’t be bothered to deal with her and turned around to leave directly.
“Briana, stop right there!”
However, Briana acted as if she hadn’t heard, not pausing her steps for
Kiley’s face turned livid with anger. This wretch, just a temporary worker, dared to disobey her. She would definitely not let her off!
Entering the lounge, as Kiley was preparing for the upcoming game at her spot, she caught sight of the water on the nearby table out of the corner of her eye, and suddenly had an idea.
For convenience and safety considerations, everyone’s water at the design competition was customized, with names labeled on them, including the water for the staff.
If Briana had drunk the spiked water and had done something embarrassing on the spot, it would have definitely disgusted Maxim.
Thinking of this, a cold smirk hooked up at the corner of Kiley’s mouth.
An hour later, the semi–finals officially began.
Briana was reviewing design drafts and writing comments and scores in her small room. As she continued, the screen in front of her suddenly became blurry and she began to feel feverish.
Briana bit her lower lip, quickly realizing something was off. She had
She took a deep breath, wanting to stand up but felt a wave of weakness in her body.
Briana bowed her head and bit her arm hard, the intense pain sobering her up a bit. She got up and quickly left.
She didn’t go to find Vincent, she didn’t trust anyone at the design competition site now!
Having finally made it to the back door, Briana collapsed directly onto the lounge chair next to it, her limbs weak, cold sweat breaking out on her forehead, and she couldn’t muster any strength.
I had planned to wait until I was more conscious before taking a taxi to leave, but everything in front of me was becoming increasingly blurry.
Just as she was about to lose consciousness, she vaguely sensed that she seemed to have been picked up by someone.
She forced her eyes open, vaguely seeing the other’s resolute chin and cold face. After a moment of stunned silence, she unconsciously reached out and hooked her arm around his neck, planting a kiss on his Adam’s apple.
The person who was originally holding her stiffened all over, and then a huge wave surged in the depths of his eyes.
“Briana, it was you who provoked me on your own initiative!”
Briana, whose consciousness had already slipped into a semi–comatose state, let out a moan. It was like the most potent aphrodisiac, tantalizing to the extreme yet unbeknownst to her.
Maxim unconsciously tightened his grip on her hand, striding quickly towards his private lounge.
As soon as the door was closed, Briana came up close.
Maxim held her chin and bent down to kiss her, pinning her between himself and the door, savoring her beauty recklessly.
Briana responded to him awkwardly, her slender arm loosely hooked around his neck. The jingling bracelet on her hand made a tinkling sound as she moved.
After an unknown period of time, the embarrassing and heart- pounding noises in the rest area finally ceased.
Waking up again, Briana found herself lying on the sofa, covered with a thin blanket, yet her body underneath was completely naked.
She rubbed her throbbing temples, looking up to see Maxim sitting not far away. After a moment of surprise, she awkwardly averted her eyes.
The memory of this incident was very clear to her, and she was also very aware that she was the one who took the initiative first.
“Mr. Yoder, could you please pass me my phone?”
Because of her previous intensity, Briana’s voice was somewhat hoarse, and her throat was still slightly sore.
Her face flushed for a moment, and her hand under the thin blanket unconsciously clenched slightly.
Even if she usually handled other matters with composure, she still found this kind of situation somewhat embarrassing.
Maxim handed her a brand new set of clothes, saying nonchalantly, “Put these on, let’s talk.”
After speaking, he turned around, his back facing her.
Having already gone through it twice, there was nothing to fuss about.
Briana took the clothes and put them on directly.
“Mr. Yoder, what did you want to talk about?”
