The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 44
Nicole sneered and looked at Ingrid Ferguson with a cold gaze. She lowered her eyelids slightly and said, “ Ms. Ferguson, are you trying to embarrass me by bringing out this ugly past over and over again?
Mind you, I’m not embarrassed. Your family should be embarrassed for treating their daughter-in -law like a maid. I wonder who will ever dare to marry into your family again…“
“Anyway, you’re not worthy of being a Ferguson! Nicole, you were clearly trying to seduce my brother earlier. Aren’t you gonna admit it?“
Ingrid was adamant that Nicole was deliberately seducing her brother with that kiss earlier.
‘Nicole wants me to apologize?!’
Ingrid was resentful and thought, ‘Why can Nicole be so arrogant? Why didn’t my brother back me up?’
“Ms. Ferguson, you actually think that I want to seduce Mr. Ferguson?“
Nicole laughed lightly. She was never one to beat around the bush and had always gone straight to the point.
‘Seduce? I don’t think I ‘m cheap enough to do this! ‘
That kiss at the end of the dance was unexpected and shocking. It must have planted seeds of doubt in the hearts of the crowd. In everyone’s opinion, Nicole must be the one who was seducing Eric Ferguson.
Her eyes were clear and cold as she swept a glance at Eric. The corners of her lips hooked up into a mocking smile.
“Three years ago, I was blind enough to marry Mr. Ferguson, but I’m certainly not so blind as to fall for Mr. Ferguson now. Even if I seduce every man on earth, I won’t ever look at Eric Ferguson again.“
Nicole did not want to look back and relive that depressing and suffocating past again.
Ingrid shuddered from Nicole’s cold gaze. She felt that the current Nicole in front of her was a completely different person from the submissive Nicole in her impression.
The wine glass that Nicole placed on the crystal table made a crisp clink and broke the awkward silence. Nicole then turned around and went downstairs under the watchful gaze of the crowd. Ian glared at Ingrid and Eric viciously before he quickly followed after Nicole.
The crowd looked at Eric, who stood there with a glum face. His gaze followed closely after Nicole’s departing back with an indecipherable expression.
Keith stood on the side and felt shocked. Seeing Eric’s attitude, it was clear that he felt heartbroken for that woman after knowing the truth.
“Mr. Lichman, I wanted to ask if this three-way cooperation of yours can be expanded to a four-way cooperation?“ Keith laughed as he pulled Gerard Lichman over, trying to divert everyone’s attention to other places.
After all, Eric Ferguson’s gossip was not something that anyone could just watch for entertainment.
Everyone also had the good sense to continue mingling and drinking in the banquet hall.
Gerard Lichman had a faint smile as he pushed up the gold -rimmed glasses on his nose bridge. “No.“
Keith said, “Can’t you be a little more euphemistic?“
Gerard hesitated for a while and replied, “Sorry, it’s not possible.“
Keith was speechless. ‘Forget it. I’d be better off talking to Eric…’
Once he turned around, the man who was standing there earlier had already disappeared.
“Where did he go?“ Keith muttered to himself.
Gerard faintly glanced at a certain location downstairs before he smiled and left.
At the same time, there were not many people around in the lounge downstairs, so it was quiet.
Ian pestered Nicole and was asking her what happened before he arrived.
“Did Eric Ferguson take advantage of you? Why did Ingrid Ferguson say that you seduced him?“
Nicole rolled her eyes at him. “No, it’s just an accident.“
This could only be an accident. Otherwise, there was no other explanation for it because no one would believe that Eric Ferguson did it on purpose.
“If he dares to bully you, I’ll definitely beat him up! “ Ian waved his fist.
Nicole swept a glance around and did not see Grant anywhere. “Where’s my brother?”
“He just went to the VIP table with Chairman Lichman to talk business. Do you wanna go find him?” Ian asked.
Nicole shook her head. “Forget it. Let’s not bother him.”
When she turned her head, she saw Eric Ferguson walking towards them.
‘It’s such a coincidence that he keeps popping up everywhere. Why is that guy haunting me like a ghost?!’
Nicole raised her eyebrows, held Ian’s arm, and intended to leave as if she did not see Eric.
“Nicole, let’s talk.” The man’s dark eyes sank.
“There’s nothing to talk about.” Nicole did not stop and left him high and dry. She did not want to have the slightest thing to do with this man.
He was just here to give her an apology, but an apology was the most worthless form of guilt.
She did not need it!
