Rayan had a puzzled look on his face. He was single, why would anyone ask him?
The two stared at each other in silence for a moment before Rayan slowly said, “I’m not very sure either, shall I go check?”
“Um, it would be best to have a few more alternatives.”
“Alright, I got it. By the way, do we need to resize the ring?”
Three years ago, Maxim prepared an engagement ring and had it delivered from Bridenville. After taking a glance at it, Maxim suddenly decided to have it remade. However, he later became too busy and this matter was never settled.
“Um, I happen to be going on a business trip to F State next week, I’ll personally select the raw stones then.”
Rayan nodded with a smile, “Alright, I’ll go out to work then.”
After the office quieted down, Maxim could clearly feel his heartbeat accelerating, thinking about the marriage proposal that had been aborted without being spoken out three years ago, he slowly exhaled.
This time must be successful!
In the evening after work, Maxim went to pick up Briana Cameron.
Just arrived at the bottom of Graceful Attire, saw Briana Cameron talking to a strange middle–aged woman.
He furrowed his brow, pushed open the car door and got out.
Just as she approached a spot not far from the two, she heard the woman pleading in a voice, “Ms. Cameron, Mrs. Schneider is your biological mother after all, please go see her… The doctor said her condition is very bad.”
The person who came to find Briana Cameron was none other than Mallory’s caregiver, Sister Sun. At that moment, she was looking at Briana Cameron with a pleading expression.
In her view, no matter how big the conflict between the two was, Briana Cameron was always Mallory’s daughter. Moreover, Mallory had occasionally mentioned Briana Cameron recently, which made her unable to resist coming to find Briana Cameron.
Briana Cameron’s expression was indifferent, her voice devoid of any warmth, “I haven’t had any connection with her for a long time, I hope you won’t come looking for me again in the future.”
Sister Sun frowned, speaking in a dissatisfied tone, “How could you be so heartless? No wonder Mrs. Schneider and Mr. Schneider didn’t like you in the past, and they were unwilling to mention you. You wouldn’t even visit your own mother when she was sick. You really don’t deserve…”
Before she could finish speaking, a cold, angry voice sounded from behind, directly interrupting Sister Sun’s words.
Sister Sun turned her head and saw a tall man in a black suit, emanating a chill all over, walking towards her.
Anger filled his eyes, and the oppressive aura radiating from him sent chills down one’s spine. Sister Sun couldn’t help but shudder.
“You… who are you… I was talking to her, what’s it to you…”
Maxim walked up to Briana Cameron, pulled her into his arms, and said coldly, “She is my wife, what’s it to you?!”
Sister Sun’s momentum was immediately cut in half, stuttering, “You…since you are her husband…you
should…should advise her to see Mrs. Schneider, after all, family harmony brings prosperity…you young people are just
Maxim had no patience to listen any further. He gave a cold glance that scared Sister Sun so much that her tongue was tied, forgetting what she originally wanted to say.
After calming down, Sister Sun wanted to speak, but was directly carried away by Maxim’s bodyguard.
Sister Sun was startled, struggling and shouting, “What are you doing?! Let me go! It’s a kidnapping!”
However, no one paid attention to her. As the distance between her and the two people grew, her voice became fainter and fainter.
Briana Cameron looked up at Maxim, “Why did you come so early today?”
“If I hadn’t come so early, I wouldn’t have seen that woman bullying you. Where is your usual dominance towards me? Why do you become silent when you encounter such
Briana Cameron huffed in annoyance, “I was just about to show off, and then you came along. There’s no room for me to shine now.”
Maxim raised an eyebrow and chuckled, “Are you blaming me for standing up for you?”
“I wouldn’t dare, I just thought that next time you don’t have to worry, I can handle it myself.”
