Maxim’s face looked terrible, “I couldn’t help it, and when I saw others insulting you, I couldn’t suppress the anger in my heart.”
Rayan, sitting in the passenger seat, couldn’t help but chuckle. He said, “Ms. Cameron, you have no idea. The president was so angry that he created a secondary account to defend you and ended up getting reported and banned.”
A flash of shock passed through Briana Cameron’s eyes, her pupils slightly dilated. She hadn’t expected Maxim to do something so childish.
Maxim couldn’t help but glare at Rayan, his tone somewhat embarrassed and angry, “Did you need to butt in?”
Rayan quickly apologized, “Never mind, I’ll stop talking. The boss might have me completely wiped out later.”
Maxim became even angrier, coldly saying, “If you keep talking nonsense, you can get out yourself.”
Briana Cameron gave him an annoyed look, “Rayan was just telling the truth, and he was doing it for your own good. Why are you being so mean to him?”
Seeing that he didn’t speak, Briana Cameron continued, “You really shouldn’t interfere in this matter anymore. I said I could handle it and I definitely will. However these people are Cursing me now, they will curse Anastasia a thousand times
more in the future.”
Maxim kept a straight face and didn’t speak. Even if he wanted to help Briana Cameron, she wouldn’t give him the chance.
Knowing he was angry at the moment, Briana Cameron suddenly grabbed his arm and shook it, whispering, “Don’t be mad, I really can handle it myself, I don’t want to become someone who only relies on others.”
Maxim turned to look at her, his eyes full of confusion, “But I am your husband, not someone else.”
Briana Cameron raised an eyebrow, “I don’t want to rely on you all the time either. I want to depend on myself. No matter how capable you are, there will always be times when you’re too busy. I want to solve these things by myself. I don’t want to be the woman behind you, but the woman who can stand beside you. Do you understand?”
Looking into Briana Cameron’s serious gaze, it felt as if the softest part of Maxim’s heart was gently squeezed by a small hand. A wave of palpitations emanated from his heart,
making him unable to resist pulling Briana Cameron into his
Briana Cameron was taken aback for a moment, then his deep voice came from above, “Briana, I understand what you mean, I won’t interfere in this matter anymore, but you also have to promise that if you can’t handle it, you must tell me, I will always be your backup.”
His steady and strong heartbeat, thumping into his own ears, unconsciously quickened Briana Cameron’s heartbeat, filling her heart with warmth.
She reached out and hugged him back, “I understand, don’t worry, I’m not that weak.”
“I didn’t think you were weak, I just wanted to protect you, I didn’t want you to get hurt in any way.”
Briana Cameron nodded, “I understand, but it’s okay, these are things I have to face eventually.”
Early the next morning, as soon as Briana Cameron arrived at the company, before she even got on the elevator, she saw people whispering about her, their eyes filled with contempt and disdain.
Some even mocked her to her face, saying, “I can’t believe you have the nerve to come to work after plagiarizing someone else’s design. You’ve really opened my eyes.”
“Stop talking, don’t you know? Yesterday, a few people from the design department got beaten up just for saying a few words. We can’t afford to mess with them!”
“Can’t believe there are people like this, they are simply lawless.”
Briana Cameron didn’t care at all about such sarcastic remarks, after all, they couldn’t hurt her in the slightest.
