The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 31
Nicole looked like she had a headache. “Yvette, who the hell is so dumb to send me flowers?“
“Of course, it’s Ian Carter. He instructed me to deliver it to you by hand.“
‘Ian? That Young Master is really capable of making things happen!’
Yvette laughed. “Old Master Carter sent Hugh to study abroad. I heard that if he fails this time, his grandpa will break his legs.“
“Awww… It’s a pity that we didn’t get to send him off. I guess we’ll just have to wait for him to come back and throw him a nice welcome back party! “
Nicole was helpless and got her assistant to take the flowers out of her office. She felt a lot more comfortable without the strong scent of flowers in the air.
Yvette nodded. “Yup, my thoughts exactly. By the way, I’ve looked into FH Corporation like you asked me to last time.“
Nicole looked up at her. Yvette laughed and said, “FH Corporation has long since become a shell company. They keep asking for loans everywhere and owe the bank a large sum of money they can’t even pay off. Their company is about to be auctioned off and they just have a bunch of sh*tty projects left. Whoever gets involved with them will surely get into trouble. That Samantha Lindt is trying to push you into a trap, huh?“
This was what Nicole expected. She raised an eyebrow and thought, ‘So she’s trying to dig a pit for me to jump in myself… The dinner tonight will be extra interesting…’
Yvette scratched her head. “It’s nothing, but… I can’t work for you anymore. My mom is coming back from Hong Kong. She just acquired a new cosmetic company and promised that I can participate in their research and development. Nikki, you know that this has always been my dream.“
Yvette’s mother was a famous career woman in the industry. She had always wanted Yvette to be part of the management in their family business, but Yvette preferred laboratory work. Since she finally got the opportunity to participate in research, she certainly would not give up on it.
Nicole smiled. “Sure, then I wish our dearest Miss Quimbey all the wealth in the world! “
The two ladies looked at each other and smiled. There was no need to say more because they had a tacit understanding between them.
“Then you should be careful. Just ask if you need help with anything. We’11 support you as best we can! “
Nicole nodded. “Don’t worry, I won’t be a stranger with you guys.“
Yvette took her purse and slipped away after chatting for a bit, then Nicole began to focus on work again.
After work, Nicole stood up from her chair and was planning to talk to Logan about the dinner. However, Samantha sashayed into Nicole’s office and said, “ Since it’s a private dinner, it’s not necessary to bring your assistant, right?“
Nicole raised her eyebrows. “Okay then.“
Logan looked at Nicole worriedly, but Nicole gave him an assuring smile.
When they got to the private club, they went into a pre -booked private room. Samantha did a friendly cheek kiss with a pot-bellied middle-aged man who was sitting at the table, which made Nicole feel nauseous.
Out of politeness, Nicole still walked over to say hello. When Chairman Zeller saw Nicole’s face, his eyes visibly lit up with unconcealed lechery, which was very disgusting.
“This is Vice President Nicole, right? I’ve heard a lot about you. You’re as beautiful as they say…“
Chairman Zeller stretched out his hand, but Nicole only nodded slightly as a greeting before she took a seat. “Mr. Zeller, you’re too kind. Your reputation precedes you.“
Samantha gave Nicole a meaningful glance. “Vice President Nicole, since you just joined Stanton Corporation, you might not know that we have a good relationship with FH Corporation, so it’s not a problem cooperating with them. Why don’t you take out the contract for Mr. Zeller? If there’s no problem, we can sign it today.“
Nicole paused and raised an eyebrow, then took out the prepared contract. “Sure. Mr. Zeller, you’d better look at it carefully.“
The middle-aged man opposite her took over the contract and swept a casual glance at it as if he already knew of its contents. When he caught sight of a number there, his face instantly sank.
“Vice President Nicole, why is the commission on this 30% higher than the promised figure?“
Samantha was startled and took a look at the contract. Her expression changed greatly and said, “ Who changed this?“
“Me, of course…“ Nicole lowered her head with a smile.
“Since I’m here to talk about this project, I have the say in it. We can go with this percentage or forget about it altogether.“
Everyone knew that if it was raised by thirty percent, FH Corporation’s initial investment would be tens of millions more, which was too much for a faltering shell company on the verge of bankruptcy.
Samantha’s face turned red with anger. “Nicole, how can you just change it as you please?“
“I’m Stanton Corporation’s Vice President, so I can do as I please. Ms. Lindt, I’m thinking of our company’s best interest, so why are you getting angry? You should be happy, don’t you think? Are you Stanton Corporation’s employee or FH Corporation’s person?“ Nicole looked at Samantha meaningfully.
As soon as she heard this, Samantha’s face turned glum. “I -I’m Stanton Corporation’s employee, but Nicole, business is based on trust. We’ve already agreed on the amount beforehand, so you can’t just change it like this! “
“As long as nothing’s been signed, everything can be changed.” Nicole playfully looked at the angry Chairman Zeller. “Or perhaps, Mr. Zeller and Ms. Lindt have already reached some sort of agreement in private?”
