Briana rolled her eyes and said, “So if you don’t come back all night, am I supposed to stay up all night just waiting for you?”
“I wouldn’t stay out all night.”
Briana didn’t pay attention to his words, which sounded like a promise. She yawned and said, “I understand, can I go back to sleep now?”
Seeing her about to lie back down to sleep, Maxim couldn’t bear it any longer and said, “Briana!“.
“What do you want to do again?!”
Seeing the impatience in her eyes, Maxim gritted his teeth and said, “I drank tonight, so help me with my bedtime routine.”
Briana took a deep breath and reluctantly suppressed the urge to throw him out, then got up and pushed him towards the bathroom.
She squeezed the toothpaste and handed it to Maxim, yawning and saying, “Here you go!”
Maxim brushed his teeth and Briana grabbed a towel to wash his face haphazardly, applying a lot of force as if she wanted to scrub off a layer of his skin.
Maxim frowned and said coldly, “Can you please be more gentle?”
“Sorry, I have always been strong since I was little, I couldn’t control
After finishing her morning routine, Briana quickly moved Maxim onto the bed and covered him with a blanket before turning off the lights.
After Briana lay down, Maxim suddenly spoke, “Briana, I was wrong about what happened last time. I shouldn’t have doubted you.”
He originally wanted to find someone to investigate the man who had dinner with her, but in the end, he held back. He was afraid that if Briana found out, they would have an even more intense argument.
Briana remained silent for a while and whispered, “Go to sleep.”
The next morning when Briana woke up, Maxim had already left the bedroom.
She finished washing up and walked out of the bedroom, only to see Maxim sitting in the living room, making a phone call.
He wore a gray sweater and a pair of black trousers today, lacking a bit of coldness.
After Briana glanced for a few seconds, she looked away and turned into the kitchen.
When Maxim came out after preparing breakfast, he had also made a phone call.
“Oliver wanted to invite you for lunch to apologize. Do you want to
A hint of surprise flashed in Briana’s eyes. After the unpleasant incident at the entrance of MY last time, Oliver still intended to
apologize to her?
Thinking of Adeline, she couldn’t help but furrow her brows.
“No, I didn’t want to see Adeline.”
After a few seconds of silence, Maxim spoke up, “Oliver and Adeline broke up.”
Briana raised an eyebrow, “Oh, it’s none of my business, you don’t have to tell me.”
Maxim was a bit helpless as he looked at Briana and said, “I was telling the truth, and Oliver also intends to apologize to Melody, so to be precise, he wants to invite the two of you for dinner.”
“Did he get his head stuck in the door?”
“Don’t you really want to go?”
Briana looked at him skeptically, “You really want me to go?”
“If you didn’t want to go, I wouldn’t force you either.”
“Oh, then I didn’t want to go.”
The two of them ate breakfast in silence. Briana put the plates into the dishwasher and looked at Maxim with a faint expression, saying, “I have something to do today and won’t be back for lunch. Tell the maid not to cook for me.”
“What did you go to do?”
Briana frowned, “This is my personal matter, there’s no need for me to report to you. But if you’re really that curious, you can hire someone to
monitor me, then you’ll find out.”
Maxim’s eyes grew colder, and his hand at his side instinctively clenched.
“Briana, I did not have someone to monitor you.”
“Then you tell me, how did you know last time that I was having a
meal with someone of the opposite sex?”
