Briana was drinking juice and almost choked when she heard the words.
After struggling to swallow the juice, she put down the blanket and whispered, “Grandma, we currently do not have that plan.”
Norma sighed and spoke with pity, “Kiley has returned to her country. I am afraid that you will be mistreated. If you two have a child, Maxim might change his ways.”
Briana smiled and said, “Grandma, if I have to rely on a child to hold him down, then I would be too pathetic. I won’t let myself get into such a situation.”
“Maxim’s life was saved by you, and his leg was healed by you as well. In any case, I will only recognize you as my daughter-in-law!”
Kiley wanted to marry into the Yoder family, unless she died!
After hesitating for a moment, Briana looked at Norma seriously and said, “Grandma, actually I have been thinking a lot during this time. If one day I get divorced from Mr. Yoder, I hope you can support me.”
Norma’s eyes flickered with shock. She hadn’t expected their relationship to have deteriorated to this extent.
“Did Maxim do something to upset you?”
“No, I’m just telling you in advance, just in case it really comes to this point, so that you can be mentally prepared.”
Norma had not spoken for a long time, and when she finally opened
her mouth, her mood was noticeably downcast.
“I knew it.”
Because of this incident, Norma’s mood remained low until dinner time, and she found everything about Maxim annoying.
After finishing the meal, Norma wanted to stay overnight at the Harmony Villa with the two of them. However, Briana and Maxim had to go back as they both had to work tomorrow.
As she was leaving, Norma called Maxim aside and gritted her teeth, saying, “If you dare to betray Briana, you can forget about getting any shares from the Yoder Group!”
Although Maxim was the leader of the Yoder Group, in reality, Norma held all the shares of the Yoder Group.
Three years ago, Maxim agreed to marry Briana, also because Norma promised to give him 80% of her shares in five years.
However, Briana was unaware of this agreement between the two of them.
Maxim’s eyes grew colder, and he said in a deep voice, “I understand.”
Briana didn’t know what Norma had said to Maxim, but she only knew that when Maxim came back, there was an even stronger chill around him.
She glanced briefly and then averted her gaze, smiling as she bid farewell to Norma.
“Grandma, I will come to see you again next time!”
Norma looked reluctant and said, “Well, if Maxim has mistreated you, you must tell me. I won’t let him get away with it!”
Seeing Norma unconditionally standing on her side, Briana felt a warm current flowing through her heart and nodded, saying, “Alright, it’s windy outside, you should go in quickly.”
“I watched you leave and then I went back.”
Briana didn’t say anything else either. She waved her hand, turned around, got on the car, and left directly. Maxim, who was completely ignored throughout the journey, had a dark expression on his face.
Norma glanced at him disdainfully, saying, “Alright, just go!”
After saying that, Norma couldn’t be bothered to pay attention to him and simply turned around and walked into the living room.
Was he being disliked by two people at the same time?
As soon as Briana arrived at the foot of the mountain, she was stopped by Maxim.
The black Maybach parked in front of her car, Maxim opened the door and got out of the car, walking towards her step by step.
Feeling the oppressive aura emanating from him, Briana furrowed her brows and lowered the car window, coldly looking at him as she asked, “What’s the matter?”
Maxim remained silent for two seconds and then said in a low voice, “Briana, let’s talk.”
