A flash of anger passed through Mallory’s eyes, “What’s going on?!”
However, no matter how Mallory asked, Kiley just cried and refused to speak.
“I called her!”
Kiley quickly grabbed her hand, speaking in fits and starts: “Mom, please stop asking. I still have a competition to participate in. Let’s talk about it after the design competition is over. I don’t want this to affect my competition.”
“What on earth did she do to you?!”
Kiley shook her head, “Give me some time. After the design competition is over, I’ll tell you everything.”
Seeing her like this, Mallory’s eyes were filled with heartache. He quickly said, “Alright, alright, I won’t ask anymore. You rest well.”
After Kiley had fallen asleep, Mallory left the ward with Zane.
“Briana was just too much. On the day the design competition started, Kiley saw her working there as a temp. I ran into her that night and gave her a piece of my mind. I guess that’s why she held a grudge against Kiley, thinking that Kiley was badmouthing her behind her back, so she deliberately tried to trip Kiley up!”
Although Zane was dissatisfied with Briana in his heart, he did not jump to conclusions due to his consideration of Briana’s relationship
“We still haven’t figured out what’s going on. Let’s wait until Kiley’s design competition is over. In the meantime, don’t go looking for Briana. If you upset Maxim and affect the Schneider Group, I won’t let you off the hook!”
“You thought Maxim would still care about her?!”
Zane was taken aback, “What do you mean?!”
Mallory sneered, “Briana and Maxim are already divorced.”
Shock filled Zane’s eyes as he gritted his teeth and asked, “Where did you hear that from?”
“Briana said it herself, Maxim was there at the time too.”
After a moment of silence, Zane frowned and said, “I will look into this matter. If it’s true, let Kiley hold onto Maxim tightly! There are still things to deal with in the company, you stay here with Kiley, call me if anything happens!”
Before Mallory could speak, Zane had hurriedly left.
Mallory watched his retreating figure, couldn’t help but mutter, “He’s been going to the company a lot lately, is the company really that busy?!”
Upon leaving the hospital, Zane immediately called Briana.
“Briana, did you divorce Maxim?”
Briana hadn’t expected Zane to call about this matter, her voice cold as she asked, “What is it?”
“You went home this week, I had something to tell you.”
A flash of anger crossed Zane’s eyes, he was about to lose his temper, but suddenly thought of something and softened his tone, “Briana, dad knows you’ve been suffering these past few years. Since you’ve divorced Maxim, why don’t you move back home?”
Briana found it somewhat amusing that her original room was converted from Kiley’s piano room. After she moved out, Mallory immediately restored her room back to Kiley’s piano room.
The Schneider family had never reserved her spot, and now Zane was asking her to move back. Where was she supposed to live, in the living room? Or at the entrance of the Schneider family’s mansion?
Thinking of this, she couldn’t help but laugh out loud.
“What were you laughing at?”
Briana mocked, “I laugh at your naivety, Mr. Schneider. I will never return to the Schneider family in my lifetime. It has never been my home.”
Zane frowned, his tone somewhat cold, “Briana, don’t throw a tantrum. It’s not safe for you to live alone outside. Give me your address, I’ll send a driver to pick you up on Saturday.”
“I wouldn’t go back, and I hoped you wouldn’t call me again.”
After speaking, Briana immediately hung up the phone.
Zane, livid with a ghastly pale face, immediately dialed his secretary’s number.
“Go check where Briana was living now!”
Briana casually tossed her phone aside, thinking about what had happened between her and Maxim in the lounge today, she couldn’t help but blush again.
However, quickly, the thought of not having found the person who drugged her turned her face icy cold again.
She suspected Kiley the most in her heart, but she had no evidence.
However, all the surveillance at the scene had been destroyed. It should have been impossible for Kiley to do this on her own.
