A flicker of surprise passed through Maxim’s eyes, he didn’t expect Sean to still care about the Yoder Group.
“No need, I could solve it myself.”
Sean frowned, “If you need help, let me know at any time. After all, I don’t want the Yoder Group to fall before we even get to the mastermind behind the scenes.”
“Don’t worry, it won’t.”
When Maxim and Sean left the study, Gemma was still chatting with Briana Cameron.
Seeing her lips curled in a smile, her eyes filled with joy, Maxim’s eyes were full of tenderness.
Sensing a gaze on herself, Briana Cameron turned her head and saw Maxim walking towards her, his eyes fixed on her. She blushed unconsciously and quickly averted her gaze.
He walked to the edge of the sofa, looking down at her and said, “Briana, it’s not early anymore, we should go back.”
Briana Cameron nodded, greeted Gemma and Sean, and the two left together.
Watching their retreating figures, Gemma couldn’t help but say, “Indeed, girls don’t stay little forever.”
Sean held her, whispering softly, “I trust Briana’s judgment, she must have been happy.”
It was mainly through these conversations with Maxim that he came to see Maxim as a man he could trust.
A flicker of worry passed through Gemma’s eyes, “Hopefully.”
She hoped that history would not repeat itself, and that Maxim would truly treat her well.
On the way back, Maxim received a call from Rayan.
“Mr. Yoder, President Zhang signed a contract with the Schneider Group tonight.”
If it were in the past, the Schneider Group wouldn’t have caught Mr. Zhang’s eye at all. Now, because of the backing of the Kingly Group, Mr. Zhang ultimately chose the Schneider Group.
Maxim’s expression was indifferent, “Understood, no need to continue following up on this contract.”
“If I had met with Director Zhang tonight, perhaps there would have been a chance…”
“No, he had already been in contact with the Schneider Group long ago. He was well aware that choosing the Schneider Group meant opposing the Yoder Group. Yet, he still leaned towards the Schneider Group. Therefore, whether or not to meet him tonight would lead to the same outcome.”
Rayan didn’t say anything else, he murmured, “I understand.”
“Um, just like that.”
Just after hanging up the phone, Briana Cameron’s worried voice rang out.
“Was the Schneider Group trying to poach the Yoder Group’s clients?”
Maxim didn’t plan to hide it from her either, he nodded and said, “Yes, not only the Schneider Group, but also the Bynes Group. The second daughter–in–law of the president of the Bynes Group, your aunt Kathy, is now tied to the Bynes Group and the Schneider Group with the Kingly Group. They are the weapons in Isaac’s hands, specifically to deal with the Yoder Group.”
Upon hearing this, Briana Cameron couldn’t help but frown, “Has the Yoder Group been having a hard time recently?”
Thinking about how Maxim had been working overtime more and more recently, a wave of panic surged in Briana Cameron’s heart. She couldn’t help but ponder on what she should do to help him if there were any problems with the Yoder Group.
It was just at the traffic light, Maxim stopped the car, turned his head to look at her, and said softly, “It’s okay, I can handle it, you don’t need to worry.”
Briana Cameron remained silent, the situation of the Yoder Group was definitely not as easy as Maxim had said.
“Don’t keep things to yourself if something’s bothering you. I know more people than you do in Haseton, sometimes I might be able to help.”
Maxim nodded, “I knew.”
From Mr. Fairchild to senior Mr. Ferber, he had put in so much effort but still didn’t succeed. However, she could solve the
problem with just a few words. He knew that she was different
from before, even much more capable than him.
