Maxim’s eyes flashed with anger as he coldly said, “The car you were driving before was Hector’s?!”
No wonder Rayan couldn’t find anything. After encountering Hector before, he had asked Rayan to investigate him. However, apart from what happened after Hector’s debut, nothing else could be found.
The investigators only revealed that Hector had a connection with the Baldwin family in Haseton. The influence in Haseton was complex and intricate, not any easier to investigate than in Bridenville. It was as difficult as reaching the sky to investigate a person, and Maxim did not continue the investigation further.
Briana saw Hector and hesitated for a moment, then said indifferently, “It seems to have nothing to do with Mr. Yoder.”
She walked quickly towards Hector and saw Briana get into the car and leave without looking back. Maxim was filled with a chilling sensation.
On the other hand, Briana got on the car and asked with a puzzled expression, “I contacted Melody, why are you here?”
Hector smiled and said, “Tonight I had dinner with Melody. When I received your call, she had something to attend to, so I came over.”
Briana’s eyes flickered with surprise. In the past, when she used to take care of Hector, Melody would often come to play with her, and they became acquainted with Hector through their interactions.
“How come you all suddenly had a meal together? Weren’t you very busy recently?”
A hint of delight flashed in Hector’s eyes as he jokingly said, “How do you know I was busy and always keeping an eye on me? Should I give you an autograph?”
Briana couldn’t help but laugh too, “Your handwriting was so bad. If it wasn’t for me practicing with you back then, could anyone read it?”
Upon hearing this, Hector also thought of the time when the two of them used to practice calligraphy together, and couldn’t help but feel a bit nostalgic.
“You didn’t just accompany me, you also accompanied the artist you brought at that time, and we accompanied each other.”
At that time, besides him, Briana had several other artists under her. She didn’t like their handwriting, so she made each person spend time practicing handwriting from eight to nine every night.
Hector wanted to spend more time with her, so he intentionally wrote his letters very messily, so that he could see her every night.
However, he wouldn’t tell Briana about these.
Briana remained silent for a few seconds, and a faint smile faded from her face. “Do you still have contact with other people now?”
“We didn’t keep in touch much.”
At that time, the artists Briana brought along had different
personalities. If it wasn’t for Briana, their intersection would have been even less.
However, the artists that Briana has brought along are all doing well in their current development.
Hector took Briana to the villa in the north of the city. After a moment of hesitation, Briana spoke up, “I don’t live here anymore. Let me take you back, and then I’ll drive back myself.”
Hector’s eyes flickered upon hearing the words, and he whispered, “Did you move back?”
Briana nodded, “Hmm, I haven’t sorted out the matter of divorcing my husband yet.”
Hector’s hand gripping the steering wheel tightened unconsciously, and his knuckles turned slightly white.
“If you needed help, I could…”
Briana interrupted before the words were finished.
“No, this is between him and me. I don’t want anyone else to interfere.”
Hector’s eyes flickered with hurt as he realized that he was just a stranger in her eyes.
“Briana… I always thought we were friends.”
Hearing the disappointment in his tone, Briana smiled lightly and said, “It’s because we’re friends that I don’t want to bother you with this matter. Alright, let’s not talk about it anymore. I’ll take you back.”
After Hector was taken back to the hotel, Briana finally returned to the villa.
What she didn’t know was that after she left, Hector’s manager came to pick him up and drove him back to the villa in the north of the city.
Seeing the dark villa next to him, Hector’s aura felt somewhat gloomy.
