Realizing he was referring to the previous plagiarism incident, Briana Cameron chuckled, “I didn’t want to bother you with such a trivial matter. Besides, I would definitely seek your help when I really need it. Didn’t I ask you to check that overseas account before?”
Speaking of this matter, a glint of coldness and guilt flashed in Maxim’s eyes, “I didn’t help you much with that account, I still haven’t figured out who it was, it’s already been deactivated.”
Briana Cameron raised an eyebrow, a smirk playing at the corner of her mouth, “It’s not like we didn’t find anything. At the very least, we can confirm that the person behind this is aware that we’re investigating him now. He’ll be more cautious in his actions from now on.”
“Well, take it slow. We’ve been bothering senior Mr. Ferber for quite a while now, let’s go home.”
Grandpa Wang on the side quickly said, “It’s okay, Briana, Mr. Yoder, you guys stay here for dinner. The young master is usually busy and there are rarely people coming over to chat with the old man and have meals.”
Briana Cameron turned to look at Maxim, “I can have dinner here with senior Mr. Ferber tonight. If you have something to do tonight, you can leave first.”
Maxim nodded, “I do have something to deal with right now. I’ll come to pick you up after you finish dinner.”
Briana Cameron waved her hand, “It’s okay, I can take a taxi back by myself.”
“Alright, call me before you go home after dinner. If I’m free, I’ll come pick you up.”
Briana Cameron had dinner with the senior Mr. Ferber and stayed for a while, it was already past 9 o’clock in the evening.
She took out her phone and called Maxim, but despite several attempts, she couldn’t get through.
Thinking that he must still be busy, Briana Cameron put down her phone and stood up to look at the senior Mr. Ferber.
“Senior Mr. Ferber, it’s already late today, I’ll go back first, and come to see you another day.”
Senior Mr. Ferber nodded and turned to Grandpa Wang, saying, “Arrange a driver to take Briana home.“‘
Briana Cameron quickly shook her head, “It’s okay, I can go back by myself, just need to take a taxi.”
“Anyway, our driver at home is not busy now. I’m not
comfortable letting you take a taxi home. Let the driver take you.”
Under the insistence of senior Mr. Ferber, Briana Cameron had no choice but to agree.
The villa where elder Mr. Ferber lived was located outside the city. On the way back, there was a stretch of road that was sparsely populated. Apart from Briana Cameron’s car, there was no one else on the road.
Suddenly, there was a series of “puff” sounds from outside the car, and then the car abruptly stopped.
Briana Cameron’s body jolted forward violently, and if it weren’t for the seatbelt, her head would have surely slammed
into the seat in front of her.
“Evan, what happened?”
“The tire burst, I’ll go down to check it out, Ms. Cameron, you wait in the car for a while.”
After getting out of the car, Evan walked to the front to check the tires and indeed found a flat tire. He said, “Ms. Cameron, I’ll change the tire. It should take about ten minutes.“”
After speaking, she stood up and was about to walk towards the trunk, when her body suddenly stiffened, and she fell straight down.
Briana Cameron’s face changed color, just as she was about to get out of the car, a dozen or so people wearing masks surrounded the vehicle.
Two of them immediately hoisted Evan up, a dagger placed against her neck.
“Briana Cameron, come down yourself, or I’ll kill her!”
A glint of coldness flashed in Briana Cameron’s eyes. These people knew her name, it was clear they were after her.
She pushed open the car door and got out, and as soon as she steadied herself, two people came towards her with a rope.
“Hand over the phone! If you dare to play any tricks, be ready
to collect this man’s body!”
Just as she handed out her phone, one of the men slapped it onto the ground and stomped on it hard twice.
The phone screen cracked instantly, and quickly went black.
