Briana glanced at him with a half-smile and put the braised pork back into his bowl, “You should eat more, after all, you work every day and it’s hard.”
Kiley, who was standing beside, couldn’t bear it anymore. With red eyes, she looked at Maxim and said, “Maxim, have you forgotten what you promised me?!”
Maxim’s face changed slightly, and he remained silent without speaking.
Sensing the subtle atmosphere, Zane quickly intervened, “Mr. Yoder, let me offer you a drink.”
Maxim didn’t back down either, and the two of them took a sip of wine. Zane then said a few more words to change the subject.
The atmosphere remained harmonious afterwards. After Briana finished eating, she immediately put down her chopsticks and stood
“I ate well.”
She turned around to leave, but her wrist was grabbed by Maxim, with a strong force that prevented her from breaking free.
“Maxim, what were you doing?”
Briana lowered her voice, her tone filled with anger.
Maxim looked at her coldly and said, “Stay and keep me company, I’m almost done eating.”
“I wanted to go out for a walk.”
“Then I went with you.”
Briana’s impatience flashed in her eyes, but before she could speak, Zane spoke up.
“Briana, you just stay here with Mr. Yoder for a while. Mr. Yoder has been drinking earlier and hardly ate anything. You can help him with some food, like serving him some dishes.”
Upon hearing this, Briana glanced at Zane with a half-smile and said, “Didn’t you just arrange for someone to serve him food? I saw Kiley doing a great job, so let Kiley do it.’
Kiley’s face suddenly changed. Originally, she had intentionally done this to disgust Briana, but being told by Briana like this made her appear like a servant.
She stood up and looked at Briana with a resentful expression, “Briana, I took care of Maxim because I saw you only cared about eating by yourself. If you’re not happy. I won’t do it anymore.”
Briana was a little annoyed by her pretentious appearance and raised an eyebrow, sneering, “Take care of it in bed?!”
Kiley’s lips suddenly turned pale, and her body trembled, unable to utter a single word.
Mallory slammed the chopsticks on the table and looked at Briana with disgust, saying, “It’s clearly your own failure as a wife, and yet you have the audacity to mention Kiley?! Besides, Kiley has always been close to Mr. Yoder since childhood, are you even jealous of her serving him food?!”
Briana chuckled lightly and said slowly, “I wasn’t jealous. She was doing well, so I let her continue.”
The atmosphere in the restaurant had become cold. Briana smiled and said, “You guys enjoy your meal, I’ll head back first.”
Watching Briana’s back, Mallory’s face turned pale with anger. “Briana, if you dare to step out of this door today! Don’t ever come back again!”
Zane glared at her angrily, his eyes filled with rage.
Before Briana arrived today, he had already told Mallory to control her emotions, but she couldn’t resist in the end.
If this angered Maxim, how could the Schneider family still have good fruits to eat?
Maxim glanced at Kiley, who was still crying, with a faint expression and said, “I’m going back first. Thank you for your hospitality tonight.”
Zane’s face turned pale, and he mustered up the courage to say, “Mr. Yoder… that project I mentioned to you in the study earlier…”
Maxim had no expression in his eyes. “The Schneider Group could participate in the bidding, but whether they can win that project or not, it solely depends on the Schneider Group itself.”
Zane was a little disappointed, but being able to participate in the bidding was already a big step forward. He quickly said, “Okay, thank you Mr. Yoder! I will see you off!”
Just as I walked out of the Schneider’s house, Kiley caught up with me.
“Maxim, do you really not like me anymore?”
Maxim turned around and looked at her. Kiley’s eyes were swollen from crying, and her gaze was filled with sadness as she looked at him.
Once upon a time, there was sunshine in these eyes.
“Kiley, it’s windy outside, you should go back.”
