Briana nodded confidently. “Shouldn’t I be suspicious of you? I mean, I’ve upset the person you love. It’s natural to assume you might take revenge on her behalf.”
Fury flashed across Maxim’s eyes. “Do you think I am this kind of person?”
Briana didn’t speak. Indignation and a sense of powerlessness surged in Maxim’s heart.
She had never trusted him!
Just as they were in a stalemate, a servant of the Schneider family came over. “Ms. Schneider, Mrs. Lacey Schneider wants you to explain everything to her.”
Briana had an indifferent look on her face. “Why bother? You’ve all seen the truth.”
The servant had a straight face and said with dissatisfaction, “Ms. Schneider, Mrs. Lacey Schneider has taken several pills to prevent a heart attack from happening because of this matter. She’ll be angrier if you don’t explain it to her.”
Before Briana could say anything, someone grabbed her wrist.
When she came to her senses, she had been pulled forward by Maxim.
Briana looked at Maxim with a frown, saying coldly, “Maxim, what are you doing? Let go!”
Kiley hurried over to stop Maxim with worry in her eyes. “Maxim,
what do you want to do? Although Briana was in the wrong, things will get uglier if she explains to Grandma. We should let her leave now.”
Briana coldly looked at Kiley. She believed that what happened today must have something to do with her.
Kiley asked Briana to leave just to facilitate herself slandering Briana later.
“Kiley, you don’t have to pretend to be the nice guy. I won’t let you off if I discover any connection between you and what happened today!”
Kiley’s eyes flashed, and she looked at Briana with grievance. “Briana, I’ve always done things for your good. How could you think of me as a bad person? I wasn’t the one asking you to get a barman for entertainment in the bar. Even if you were pissed off by the exposure of this matter, you couldn’t vent your anger on me!”
At this time, Mallory walked to Kiley and looked at Briana with disgust. “You took the initiative to hook up with those dirty guys yet you slander Kiley for being the mastermind. How could I have such an indecent daughter like you?”
Kiley pulled Mallory and pretended to be magnanimous. “Mom, I can take the grievance, but Briana’s reputation may have been destroyed.”
“She asked for it. It has nothing to do with you!”
Hearing that Mallory and Kiley echoed each other, Briana would have applauded for them if Maxim hadn’t grabbed her hand.
Maxim didn’t even look at Kiley and pulled Briana to the center of the stage.
Everyone looked at Maxim with surprise, not knowing what he was going to do.
Briana looked at Maxim with mockery. “It looks like you love Kiley so much that you want to make me ashamed in public even if you’ve played the surveillance footage on the screen!”
Kiley thought like this as well. Maxim must be feeling that Briana was a disgrace to him so he wanted to cut all ties with her.
However, what Maxim said stunned Kiley.
“Lacey said that she wanted an explanation. Briana could give her one, but I don’t think her family can take it!”
The crowd was in an uproar after Maxim said this.
“Did I mishear? Aren’t Maxim and Kiley a couple? Why did he say that Briana was his wife?”
“I thought Briana was the mistress, but it turns out Kiley is the real homewrecker. She knew that Briana had married Maxim yet she still pestered him. What a bitch!”
“Maxim calmly said that he had married Briana when he saw Briana feed fruit to the barman. Isn’t this the most shocking thing?”
Kiley’s face was deathly pale, and she couldn’t help trembling. She never expected Maxim to admit his marriage to Briana in public.
