Anyway, she wasn’t in a hurry.
Returning to the living room, there was only Maxim sitting on the sofa, looking at her with a cold expression.
Briana couldn’t help but frown, while Zane wished he could hold onto Maxim’s thick and sturdy thigh, how could he be nowhere to be found?
“Where did you just go?”
As Maxim spoke, the temperature in the entire living room dropped by a few degrees.
Just now, he heard what Briana said in the garden, and he felt a lump in his throat. He had planned to wait for Briana to come and apologize to him.
She was so cunning that she ran away without a trace, and Maxim’s anger kept building up more and more!
Briana looked indifferent as she walked over and sat across from him. “I went to chat with my grandmother, what about the Schneider family?”
“I don’t know, don’t you think you should explain the things you said. in the garden earlier?”
Briana looked up and locked eyes with Maxim, anger evident in his gaze. He was clearly still upset.
“I think my previous words should have been easy to understand. Is there anything else that needs to be explained?”
Seeing that Maxim was really angry, Briana pursed her lips and said, “I came back today to have dinner, I don’t want to argue with you.”
Maxim sneered, “Since you don’t want to argue, then stop saying things that I don’t like to hear!”
At worst, she would say it where he couldn’t hear.
The two of them fell silent, neither of them spoke again.
Soon, Zane walked into the living room with a bottle of expensive red wine in his hand and said pleasingly to Maxim, “Mr. Yoder, I have taken out my cherished Lafite that I have been keeping in the wine
cellar for many years. Mr. Yoder, please honor me by having a drink tonight!”
In theory, Zane was Maxim’s father-in-law, so even if someone wanted to please, it should be Maxim pleasing Zane.
Unfortunately, Maxim never regarded his own wife highly, and the Schneider family relied on the Yoder Group for survival, which has led to the current situation.
Briana had no feelings for Zane, she looked at him with indifference, and there was no trace of emotion in her eyes.
“Ms. Schneider, I’m afraid this won’t work, I drove here today.”
Zane quickly said, “What’s the big deal? I can have my driver take you later, or you can just stay here tonight.”
Maxim fell silent for a few seconds, not knowing what he was thinking, and nodded slightly, saying, “Okay.”
Dinner was quickly prepared, and the servant came over to invite a few people to eat.
Not sure if it was intentional, but Zane arranged for Kiley to sit on the left side of Maxim, while Briana sat on the right side of Maxim.
During the meal, Kiley saw Maxim drinking alcohol and occasionally feeding him food.
“Maxim, this is the spare ribs you liked the most.”
“Maxim, try this delicious sticky rice lotus root dish made by our family chef.”
Kiley kept talking to Maxim as if she would never get tired.
Briana, on the side, was not angry either. On the contrary, she had a look on her face as if she was enjoying the show, watching the two of them. Kiley’s gaze at Maxim was almost pleading, as if she wanted to pounce on him directly if there weren’t so many people around.
Just as she was thinking about that scene in her heart, Maxim suddenly served her a piece of braised pork.
“Eat more, you were too thin, it didn’t feel good to hold you.”
In an instant, everyone’s gaze at the dining table fell upon her.
Especially Kiley, her gaze was cold and seemed to devour people!
