The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 119
Nicole paused for a moment. Her eyebrows moved slightly as she raised her eyelids insouciantly, then hooked the corners of her lips.
“Mr. Ferguson, why do you want to know this?“
‘Knowing the answer no longer had any meaning now, is there?’ Nicole thought.
“Answer me.“ Eric’s voice was deep, and his eyes were bottomless like the ocean.
Nicole lowered her eyelids and smiled gently.
“Because my family is very unimpressed with you, but I was somehow blind and liked you.“
‘That was why I turned my back on my world, gave up my identity, and ran to him with open arms.
Unfortunately, he didn’t catch me, and I fell to a painful death…’
“Fortunately, I’m not blind anymore.“ Nicole smiled faintly. It was extremely cold. “Mr. Ferguson, are you done talking? You might as well go back and discuss with the old man on how to word the apology.“
Nicole took a sip of red wine and retracted her gaze. She turned on her heels and left without saying another word.
Grant was mingling with the guests with ease.
Floyd smiled and suddenly remembered something, then walked up to Grant. “Where’s K? Why isn’t he present at such an important occasion?“
Kai, as one of Nicole’s scandalous boyfriends, was also a famous movie star.
Grant coughed. “He said he’d steal everyone’s thunder by coming, so he’s at home, sleeping…“
Floyd coldly grunted. “What stupid thunder? Isn’t his title all paid for?“
Nicole and Grant were speechless.
Kai, who was at home enjoying the movie he was starring in, suddenly sneezed…
When the party was about to end, Yvette and Julie dragged Nicole out and sneaked away.
“Ferg, why’d you only come now when you called us out earlier? We’re all waiting for you…“
As soon as Eric arrived, Keith Ludwig came up to him.
Since the Stantons spent so much money chartering the entire city’s building advertising space to announce Nicole’s identity, coupled with the live photos of the gala circulating online, everyone knew of the earth-shattering events that took place at Stanton Corporation’s anniversary gala.
Nicole was the heiress of Stanton Corporation.
‘Oh, God…’ Keith thought about his attitude towards Nicole during the past three years and suddenly shuddered in fear.
Eric took the glass on the table that no one had touched before and drank the whiskey in one gulp.
Everyone saw this and kept silent. They still found it unbelievable.
Who they thought was a pauper turned out to be a princess. No one would be able to accept such a role reversal!
Keith sighed. “Nicole really hid it too well. All of a sudden, she just stood at the top of the food chain! Do you think she’ll settle scores with us?! “
Eric, who had not spoken, only grunted with a frown. “No, she’ll only look for me to settle the score.“
‘I’m the only one who treated her badly since the beginning…’ Eric thought.
Someone next to them questioned, “Is Nicole the illegitimate daughter of Floyd Stanton?“
‘Otherwise, how come no one has heard of her existence in the Stanton family before this?’
Eric was doubtful. If Nicole was an illegitimate daughter, why would Floyd Stanton dare to announce her identity so blatantly?
It was clear that the Stanton family had been hiding information about her in order to protect her.
Keith said, “Didn’t you guys follow her story online? As soon as Nicole’s identity was revealed, Stanton Corporation published her past experiences. She was accepted into an Ivy League when she was thirteen and even got a full scholarship to further her studies abroad. She graduated with a PhD in only four years! She then went on to intern at one of Europe’s top business firms and had close dealings with a certain royal family. She’s basically a living legend before she married Ferg! No wonder even Grant Stanton is willing to play second fiddle to her. Stanton Corporation would definitely grow under her leadership.”
Everyone was dead silent as they listened. They used to look down on this woman.
They thought that she only married Eric because she was just a gold-digger and a scheming b*tch.
In the end, no one expected that they were the ones who were too lowly for Nicole!
Seeing this, Keith went up and patted Eric’s shoulder. “Ferg, come to think of it, why did she marry you in the first place? She must’ve really fallen in love with you, right? Why though?”
