Now he also has a certain understanding of Briana’s personality. As long as others do not provoke her actively, she will not cause trouble actively
Kiley felt even more aggrieved when she realized that Maxim did not stand on her side directly.
“Maxim. I really just wanted to help Briana carry the steamed eggs, but I accidentally spilled them. However. Briana thought I did it on
purpose and she even hit me…”
Maxim remained silent for a few seconds before speaking, “I understand, you can go back now.”
A trace of disbelief flashed in Kiley’s eyes, didn’t he help himself to seek justice?
“Okay, then I will come and see you another day, Maxim. Don’t blame Briana either. It’s all my fault for causing trouble. Briana got angry because of me. but I don’t blame her.”
Seeing Maxim calm and with a deep gaze that revealed no trace of emotion, Kiley left feeling dejected.
Maxim searched in the living room for a while and finally found the medicine box.
He wheeled himself back to the bedroom, while Briana had just finished rinsing her arms with cold water and came out of the bathroom. She saw the medicine box in Maxim’s hands, and a hint of surprise flashed in her eyes. Shouldn’t Maxim be comforting Kiley at this moment?
“Come here, I will give you medicine.”
Briana stood still for a moment, looking into Maxim’s calm eyes, before walking up to him.
“Give me the first aid kit, I’ll handle it myself.”
Maxim’s face turned a bit cold, “If it’s inconvenient for you to take the medicine, I’ll help you.”
“That’s fine, anyway it will be better in a few days.”
Seeing Briana turning around to leave, a surge of anger welled up in Maxim’s heart, and he coldly said, “Stop!”
He handed the medicine box to Briana, radiating coldness all around him, expressing his anger at the moment.
Briana took the medicine box from him without even looking at him and left the bedroom directly.
Maxim pushed the wheelchair outside while Briana sat on the sofa, applying medicine. He noticed a patch of redness on her fair arm, and his gaze darkened.
“Why did you slap Kiley today?”
Briana raised an eyebrow and looked at him, half–smiling as she said. “Feeling sorry? If you do, then in the future, don’t meet her here anymore. As long as it’s somewhere I can’t see, you can do whatever
Maxim frowned and his voice turned cold, “Even if she did it on purpose, two slaps would be enough.”
Briana paused for a moment, looked up at Maxim, and said, “Two more slaps. It was a lesson she taught my horse at the stable that day 1
always seek revenge when someone wrongs me. If you really care so much, you can take it on behalf of her next time!”
“What about me? That day at the horse stable, I also wrongly accused you. How do you plan to retaliate against me?”
Briana lowered her gaze and applied medicine on her arm. After throwing the cotton swab into the trash can, she looked up at Maxim.
“If you were willing, you could also slap yourself twice, but you can’t really cause any actual harm to me by falsely accusing me, and I don’t have to seek revenge on you just because of a few words.”
After finishing speaking, Briana packed up the medicine box and planned to leave.
Maxim grabbed her hand, his voice slightly low, “Briana, do you agree to stay in the villa and take care of me, is it not because you still have feelings for me?”
Briana looked at him with a puzzled expression, not knowing how he came to this conclusion. She furrowed her brows and said. “You’re overthinking it. You also mentioned that you got into the car accident because you were going to notarize the divorce agreement. I have an obligation to take care of you.”
Another thing is that he had a car accident, which was because of the grudge he had with Scorpion, so he can be considered as being implicated by himself as well.
Maxim stared into her eyes, trying to find any signs of lying.
But Briana just looked at him calmly, with no emotion in her clear black and white eyes.
For some reason, a touch of disappointment rose in his heart.
He let go of Briana’s hand and said angrily, “It’s not the best, I won’t like you, and I hope you can always put yourself in the right place!” >
