Briana’s ears were almost calloused from hearing this. She replied calmly. “Don’t worry, I am well aware of my place in your heart.”
The two of them did not speak again, and the suffocating silence spread in the living room.
Briana stood up and looked at Maxim, saying, “I’ll go tidy up the kitchen. Later, I’ll order takeout. What would you like to eat?”
“Whatever, I went to the study to work first.”
After Maxim left. Briana cleaned up the kitchen and ordered takeout from her favorite place. Once she placed the order, she went to the living room, played with her phone, and waited for the delivery.
In less than an hour, the takeout arrived. Briana arranged the food and called Maxim to eat in the study.
After seeing the dishes on the table, Maxim’s face turned extremely ugly.
“Briana, were you doing it on purpose?!”
Briana just picked up the bowl and looked at him in confusion, “What do you mean?”
“You knew very well that I couldn’t eat spicy food, yet you ordered so many spicy dishes.”
Briana was a person who loved spicy food. She used to know that Maxim had a weak stomach, so she only cooked mild dishes to take care of him.
She raised an eyebrow and spoke in a calm tone, “So, didn’t I order stir–fried vegetables and steamed eggs for you?”
When I asked him just now, he said it doesn’t matter. But now he is being picky and difficult to please!
Maxim pursed his thin lips, his eyes filled with coldness.
Every time Briana picked up a chopstick of food, Maxim’s gaze grew even colder.
A few minutes later, Briana helplessly put down her chopsticks and looked at Maxim, saying, “You’ll have to make do today. Tomorrow, I’ll find a maid to come and cook.”
After a moment of silence, Maxim reluctantly nodded.
After finishing the meal, Briana tidied up and Maxim looked at her expressionlessly, “I want to take a shower, can you help me?”
Briana’s face changed, looking at him incredulously, she said. “You couldn’t wash it yourself?!”
Seeing the resistance and disdain in her eyes, Maxim’s face darkened and he coldly said, “Do you think I can wash myself in my current state?”
Briana pursed her lips and hesitated for a moment before reluctantly speaking, “Alright then.”
Briana struggled again as she pushed Maxim into the bathroom.
“Can you take off your clothes by yourself? I’ll go and prepare the water for you first!”
After speaking, as if afraid that Maxim would refuse, she quickly walked to the bathtub and turned her back to Maxim, starting to fill it
Ten minutes later, Briana turned her head and saw that Maxim had only taken off his shirt. Unable to help herself, she frowned and asked, “Why aren’t you taking off your pants?”
“I couldn’t take it off by myself, please help me.”
If she had known that she would experience such an embarrassing situation, she would definitely not have agreed to come and take care of Maxim.
Seeing that Briana didn’t move, Maxim gradually lost patience.
“We have already seen everything, what else is there to be shy about?”
Briana bit her lower lip and stubbornly said, “Who told you I was shy?”
Maxim’s eyes flickered with a hint of mockery, and he said calmly, “Since you’re not shy, come over and help me quickly.”
Briana hesitated as she walked slowly towards Maxim and said. “How about I find a male caregiver for you temporarily? I’m not very good at helping others with tasks like bathing, especially when it comes to men…”
Before I could finish speaking, my wrist was grabbed by Maxim.
The next second, he pulled Briana into his arms.
Briana was startled and quickly reached out to press against his chest.
Feeling his strong heartbeat and explosive muscles, Briana’s face instantly turned red.
Although she has been married to Maxim for three years, the only time they have had intercourse was on their wedding night.
So she can be said to be a blank sheet of paper when it comes to matters between men and women.
Noticing her stiffness, Maxim held her hand down and said in a hoarse voice, “Let me teach you.”
His palm was very hot, and the heat seemed to spread through Briana’s limbs as if it was transferred from his hand, making her tremble involuntarily.
Suddenly, a wave of icy coldness spread through the palm of my hand.
