The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 48
Inside the car, Nicole could hear the lovely and soothing sound of music that was like a refreshing stream of water to her ears. It was her favorite violin piece, “Serenade“.
Nicole finally felt relaxed at this moment. She tugged at the hem of her dress in fascination, seemingly thinking about something.
Grant glanced to the side at his sister. “Lil N, is Ian Carter pursuing you?“
He could see at a glance that there was something fishy with Ian Carter.
Nicole paused in her movements and was startled. “ Nah, he’s just fooling around. He’ll be back to normal in a couple of days.“
Grant looked away and laughed. “That’s good.“ “You don’t like him?“
That was strange. The Stantons always had a good relationship with the Carters. Otherwise, they would not have allowed Nicole to get close to Ian and Hugh.
“He’s had too many girlfriends, and his private life is too messy. He’s not suitable for you, but if you’re happy…“ Grant was a little hesitant.
Nicole laughed. “What are you implying? How can I go for my friend? Besides, I’m not interested in men right now. I just want to focus on my career! “
Grant was visibly satisfied with this answer. “Yes, men are nothing. You can have as many as you want. Just take things slow.“
‘I must train my baby sister to become the world’s richest woman!’
The driver in front thought, ‘Eldest Young Master is a bad influence on the Young Lady…’
Since Eric Ferguson called them out for drinks, his buddies, who were nearby, went there as long as they could make it.
Inside the private room, Eric already had several empty bottles in front of him before his friends arrived.
Keith tried to stop Eric, but he did not manage to and could only watch on the side.
Colton White and the others who came later were shocked to see this scene. Eric had not looked like this for many years. The last time he got so drunk was when Hendrick died.
“What’s going on?“ Their friends came in alarmed. “ Why did you guys start drinking already?“
A glass of cold whiskey slipped down Eric’s throat, but his face did not change in the slightest. He extended his hand. “Sit.“
Everyone sat down in amazement. Keith was sober and poured them all a glass. ‘Bros should go through thick and thin together, am I right?’
Colton looked at Keith and asked, “Bro, what happened here?“
Keith pursed his lips. ‘What else could it be? It must be because of his stupid ex—wife…’
However, he dared not say it out loud.
Eric’s eyes darkened as waves of emotions tumbled inside. He tugged on his messy shirt collar and revealed his collarbone. “I was married for three years but didn’t introduce you guys to Nicole. Do you guys know her?“
This name was very popular recently, so who would not know her?
“Just because of her? Ferg, you both aren’t of the same social status, so divorce is just a matter of time. Don’t be so sad. Speaking of which, we should even celebrate it!“
Keith was desperately trying to stop Colton with his eyes but to no avail.
“Yeah! She’s not on our level, so there’s no need to introduce her. You don’t even like her, so we’ve never acknowledged her as our ‘sister-in-law’.“
“Right, didn’t she marry you with a motive? We’ve seen gold diggers before, so don’t take it to heart.“
‘Look, it’s because of my acquiescence that Nicole got hurt…’ Eric’s mood was very complex and he felt frustrated.
‘She had a motive? I can’t think of what her motive is. She didn’t spend a penny of what I gave her and even threw it all out at that party when she fought with Wendy… She didn’t want anything when she asked for a divorce and left without taking a cent… My family bullied her like that yet she didn’t say a word and even acted like everything was fine in front of me… My friends ignored her, yet she just shrunk into her shell quietly and didn’t even complain…
What exactly did she want then?’
The alcohol gave him a burning sensation down his throat. Keith the blabbermouth then told everyone what happened tonight. Colton and the others were unfazed by it and kept drinking.
“Ferg, you’re just soft-hearted. It’s not your fault, so why are you blaming yourself?“
“Yeah, she asked for it. Women just like to find trouble for themselves. If she had a problem, she should’ve told you in time. If she kept it to herself, who can help her?“
“Who doesn’t have some conflicts at home? She can’t blame anyone for not being able to handle your mother and sister…“
“Stop thinking about it. Since she wanted a divorce, she should make a clean break. You don’t owe each other anything, so why torture yourself so much? Don’t go looking for trouble.“
“Keith, you usually have a lot of tricks up your sleeve. Why don’t you think of a way to deal with that woman?“
Keith drank so much that he was a little tipsy. “I…I don’t dare to…my nudes are still with her…“
Everyone drank to their heart’s content, and Eric even more so. In a daze, he remembered Nicole’s face when she looked at him with disgust. ‘Since she wants us to be strangers, should I fulfill her wish?’
