Briana felt guilty in her heart. Scorpion had targeted her, and even if she hadn’t caused the car accident on the way to the courthouse, he would have found other ways to harm Maxim.
“Grandma, Mr. Yoder will be fine, I promise!”
She would definitely not let him have any trouble!
After comforting Norma, Briana returned to the door of the ward to continue standing guard.
Soon, Kiley, who had received the news, also rushed over.
Tears filled her eyes as she coldly looked at Briana and said, “I heard that Maxim had a car accident on his way to the courthouse for a divorce. Briana, you are simply a jinx. Whoever is associated with you is unlucky!”
Briana sneered at her and said slowly, “What’s it to you? Don’t forget. I haven’t divorced Maxim yet. It’s not your place, as a mistress, to
After a moment of silence, Kiley spoke with a disgusted expression, “Maxim, I’ll stay here and watch. You can leave!”
“It’s you who should roll, Kiley. I haven’t settled the matter at the stable with you yet. If you continue buzzing around me like a fly, I wouldn’t mind taking care of you right now. It just so happens that Maxim is unconscious and no one is there to back you up.”
Kiley pointed at her and gritted her teeth, saying, “This is your true face, all that gentleness and understanding, it’s all just an act!”
“Gentleness and understanding are meant for those who treat me well. As for you, do you think you deserve it?”
“You wait for me!”
After driving Kiley away, the world finally became peaceful.
If it weren’t for the fear of Scorpion’s people coming to harm Maxim again, when Kiley said she would stay by his side, she would have immediately left.
And Maxim’s leg was also a problem, she couldn’t let him spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.
After hesitating for a long time, Briana finally pressed a phone call that she hadn’t dared to make for three years.
Just as the phone was about to disconnect automatically, the other side finally answered, and immediately a strange and sarcastic voice came through.
“Oh, you still remember this old man? If you had called a little later, you could have visited my grave.”
Briana bit her lower lip and said, “Master, I…”
Hearing her hesitant speech, the old man spoke with some displeasure, “Calling me this time, is it for that boy Maxim again?!”
The other side remained silent for a long time and sighed, “Let’s not talk about this matter for now. Was he good to you?”
“It was good.”
As soon as the words fell, the person opposite snorted coldly, “What a load of nonsense! Although I live in the deep mountains and old forests, I haven’t reached the point of having blurred vision! If he really treated you well, you would have brought him to see me long ago!”
Briana pursed her lips, surprised that her master was so perceptive, and instantly felt embarrassed as if she had been exposed.
“Master, could you please spare me some face?”
“Do you still have any face? I told you three years ago, if you feel wronged, come back anytime. And what did you do? You thought I lived too long and wanted to anger me to death, is that right?!”
It must have been Wyatt who reported, otherwise how could the master. who was immersed in research all day, know about my affair with Maxim!
“Are you calculating in your mind to settle the score with Wyatt?”
“…I didn’t have!”
“You say there isn’t, don’t I know you well enough?! Wyatt hasn’t come back for three years either. Next time you come back with him, bring that kid Maxim along! I really want to see what tricks he has up his sleeve to deceive you!”
“Alright, that’s it.”
For the next three days, Briana stayed outside Maxim’s hospital room, but there was no sign of him waking up.
On the third day, around noon, Briana suddenly received a phone call from Melody.
