She also understood Norma’s meaning, but her expectations were ultimately dashed, and there was no possibility of reconciling with Maxim.
Their marriage was like a crumbling house, ready to collapse at any
She used to be the person who desperately repaired the house, but in the end, she realized that no matter how she repaired the house full of holes, it was all in vain.
They got off the car and soon someone came to pick them up.
The resort’s opening date was the tenth of next month, and there were hardly any tourists at the moment.
Briana had heard about this resort since it began construction, which was the Newman family’s largest investment project in recent years.
It included thousands of guest rooms, hundreds of meeting rooms, as well as large facilities such as swimming pools, restaurants, and entertainment facilities. It covered an area of one million square meters, making it the largest resort in Bridenville.
Several people took the resort’s dedicated sightseeing car to the hotel, and it took over half an hour to get there.
Delilah Newman had been waiting at the door, and when she saw Norma, she immediately smiled and approached her, saying, “You finally came. We have all been waiting for you.”
“We were a bit delayed on the way, Maxim, Briana, come and say
hello to Mrs. Newman.”
“Hello, Mrs. Newman!”
Delilah smiled as she looked at Briana and Maxim, “You can play around, and the room has already been prepared for you. If you want to rest at the hotel first, you can do that too. Your grandmother and I will go for a walk.”
After the two of them left, Maxim looked down at Briana and asked, “Do you want to rest first or go for a walk?”
“Take a rest first.”
The two of them walked into the hotel and Briana frowned when she found out that Delilah had only booked one room for both of them.
She handed her ID card to the front desk and said, “Hello, could you please give me another room?”
The receptionist was about to take the ID card when a bony hand, with distinct knuckles, snatched it away from Briana’s hand.
Briana turned to look at Maxim and frowned, saying, “Give me back my ID card!”
Maxim looked at her coldly and asked, “Have you ever seen a married couple sleeping in separate rooms?”
Briana pursed her lips and said slowly, “Maxim, I don’t want to argue with you here. Give me back my ID before my patience runs out!”
Maxim ignored her and went straight to the front desk, saying, “Give me the room key.”
Perhaps it was Maxim’s overwhelming presence that caught the front desk off guard, as they hesitated for a moment before quickly bowing

their head to search for the room key.
After receiving the room key, Maxim reached out to pull Briana.
Briana quickly took a step back and coldly looked at him, “I said, I wouldn’t share a room with you.”
Maxim’s patience was gradually running out, so he took two steps forward and picked up Briana horizontally, heading towards the elevator.
Briana was startled and instinctively grabbed Maxim’s collar.
Noticing the gaze of people around her, Briana’s face turned red instantly, whether out of embarrassment or anger, she couldn’t tell.
“Maxim! Put me down!”
Seeing her ears turning red, Maxim whispered, “If you had obediently followed me just now, you wouldn’t be in this situation.”
Briana sneered, “So you mean I should blame myself?”
“You knew, and that’s enough.”
The two of them walked up to the elevator, and Briana impatiently spoke, “Can you let me off now?”
Maxim remained silent, with a cold expression, waiting for the elevator to come down.
Briana frowned and was about to speak when the elevator door opened.
The people inside saw them and their faces immediately turned
