The agent also knew that he had been secretly in love with Briana all along and couldn’t help but say, “Why didn’t you tell her about buying the villa next to hers?”
Hector shook his head, “It wasn’t time yet.”
At least he had to wait until she sorted things out with Maxim before he could tell her about his feelings for her, otherwise it would only bother her.
The agent couldn’t help but laugh at him, “I have never seen anyone who can hold it in like you, if you keep holding on, you’ll become a ninja turtle.”
Originally, Hector had no background, and she disagreed with Hector’s secret love for Briana.
Who knew that later Hector suddenly became a member of the
Baldwin family in Haseton, with the Baldwin family looking after him, she no longer objected to Hector’s liking for Briana.
“Alright, you can go back now. Come pick me up again tomorrow morning.”
Returning to the villa, Hector turned on the lights. The layout and decoration of the villa were exactly the same as Briana’s villa, even the books that Briana liked to read, he bought the same ones, some of which were out of print and he had searched for a long time through
However, he still liked to stay at Briana’s villa, where there was the lingering presence of her life.
These hidden affections, one day, should be able to tell her in person.
Hector took a book to read and had just sat down on the sofa when he received a call from the Baldwin family butler.
“Sir, Mr. Baldwin’s condition has worsened. Please come back and see him. He has been wanting to meet you.”
Hector’s breathing became slightly heavier, and after a while, he spoke with a cold expression, “There are many people around him who care about him, and I am not the only one.”
The butler was somewhat helpless, his voice tinged with pleading, “Mr. Baldwin, although he made mistakes in the past, he has now repented… and he wants to entrust the Baldwin family to you, sir…”
Hector frowned and interrupted him, saying coldly, “This matter has nothing to do with me, and I don’t care about the Baldwin family! Don’t call me again!”
After speaking, Hector immediately hung up the phone.
He unconsciously tightened his grip on the book, and it was not until some time had passed that he slowly closed his eyes, concealing the hatred in his heart.
Briana returned home, and it was already past ten o’clock at night.
As she walked into the living room, she saw Maxim looking at her with a cold expression.
“Do you still remember coming back?!”
Ignoring Maxim’s angry words, Briana pretended not to hear and calmly went upstairs.
Briana’s footsteps stopped at the staircase, and she turned to look at Maxim.
“Mr. Yoder, do you have a moment?”
“You are not allowed to have any further contact with Hector in the future!”
Briana sneered, “Sorry, I couldn’t do it.”
Maxim burst into laughter in anger, “Briana, it seems that unless I teach you a lesson, you won’t learn your lesson.”
Briana coldly looked at him, without a trace of warmth in her eyes.
“What did you want again?”
Maxim’s eyes were icy cold, and he exuded an aura of intimidation all over his body.
“It’s nothing, just canceling a few movies that Hector took, and preventing his previous movies from being aired.”
Briana’s face finally changed, gritting her teeth she said, “Maxim, I didn’t expect you to be so despicable!”
“You called me despicable because of some random guy outside?! Briana, I am your husband!”
Briana looked at him mockingly, “Finding a mistress outside, letting the mistress manipulate me, protecting the mistress’s husband?! A husband who has never cared about me?! Or a husband who is self- centered and imposes his own thoughts on me?!”
