Could it be Scorpion?!
Thinking of this, Briana’s expression became serious. She opened Line and sent a message to the person with the black profile picture.
“Help me find out where Scorpion has been active recently.”
During this period, Scorpion suddenly disappeared without a trace. It’s probably very difficult to find any clues, but I’ll try my best.
Closing the dialogue box, Briana lowered her gaze, not knowing what she was thinking.
Just as she had finished bathing and was about to go to sleep, Madeline suddenly came to find her.
“Briana, is this your little white lotus sister?!”
Briana glanced at the phone Madeline handed her, which was playing a video. It was a scene from a design competition where someone had jumped off a building, captured inadvertently by someone else.
Although the distance was somewhat far and the face wasn’t clearly captured, Briana recognized at a glance that the other person was Kiley.
She furrowed her brows, “Madeline, where did you get this video?”
“Someone posted this on Twitter this evening. I was just casually scrolling and didn’t expect to see this in our city. It felt like Kiley, so I
came to find you.”
Briana nodded, “Indeed, it was her.”
But how could Kiley have jumped off the building?!
Wanted to make a name for herself through a design competition? She probably wasn’t the type to use such tactics to attract attention.
“Could it be that she didn’t make it through the preliminary round of the design competition, couldn’t accept it, and therefore jumped off the building?”
Briana pursed her lips, “Not sure.”
After Madeline left, Briana immediately called Vincent.
“Mr. Yearwood, you saw the news about Kiley jumping off the building, didn’t you?”
“See, if you’re going to jump off a building, at least pick a high spot. Jumping from the second floor will only result in a fracture at most!”
Vincent’s voice was filled with resentment, as there were continuous online speculations about whether there was any scandal in the design competition due to Kiley’s suicide.
He had the PR department handle the situation for over two hours, and only after releasing the news of Kiley advancing to the next round of the competition did the matter gradually subside. He was so busy that he didn’t even have time to eat dinner.
“Has the specific reason been investigated clearly?”
After hesitating for a few seconds, Vincent slowly said, “Ms. Schneider, this matter may be related to Mr. Yoder.”
Ever since Maxim publicly announced his marriage to Briana in front of the Schneider family, the upper class of Bridenville had known that the two were husband and wife.
However, Vincent also knew that the relationship between the two was not good, and it was because of Kiley, so he did not want to mention this matter in front of Kiley.
“What did it have to do with him?”
“Ms. Schneider had jumped from the window of Mr. Yoder’s lounge……. It was said that she was unconscious when she hit the ground, and she kept tearing at her own clothes. If it hadn’t been for a few female designers who helped shield her, who knows what would have happened…”
Briana lowered her gaze, a sudden guess forming in her mind.
“I knew, thank you Mr. Yearwood for telling me this.”
After ending the call, Briana opened Maxim’s chat box.
Was it Kiley who drugged me today?
After a long while, Maxim finally came to.
Hmm, I was just in a meeting.
Did you also drug her?
No sooner had the message been sent than Maxim’s call came through.
Briana’s hand unconsciously tightened around her phone, it took her several seconds before she swiped to answer.
Maxim’s cold voice came through, “I did drug her, and I found a man for her. She didn’t want to be with that man, so she jumped off the building. Is there anything else you want to ask?”
Briana stood frozen in place, it took her a long time to hear her own voice.
“Didn’t you…like her? Why did you treat her like that?”
