Divorced Billionaire Heiress” chapter No.198
Early in the morning.
Nicole wore a simple, elegant dress and paired it with a jacket. She looked so bright and vivacious, simply stunning.
When she got to the office, Logan took some documents to her.
“There’s a bidding session in the afternoon. The land is in a prime location. The most promising winning bid besides us is Ferguson Corporation.“
It was not a surprise.
Why would Ferguson Corporation give up such a big slice of the pie?
Nicole turned to the first page. “This is our base price?“
That was not a small amount. Logan nodded. “Yes.“
Nicole had a figure in mind and intended to go in person.
The dazzling crystal chandeliers inside the luxurious banquet hall it up the whole space.
The people walking around politely exchanged pleasantries, but no one revealed any crucial information.
After all, everyone’s base price was the key to winning or losing the bid.
Eric’s assistant, Mitchell, went to mingle around with everyone.
It looked like Eric would not come in person.
Next to Mitchell stood an elegant young woman with beautiful features and a calm demeanor.
Every expression the woman made carried such a powerful aura.
Nicole immediately noticed her.
The woman looked somewhat familiar.
Sensing Nicole’s gaze, the woman looked and smiled at her.
The two ladies looked at each other without avoidance.
Nicole smiled graciously as the woman came forward and extended her hand. “Ms. Stanton, right? I’m Chloe Snyder. Nice to meet you.“
After a short pause, Nicole also extended her hand and smiled. “I’ve heard a lot about you…“
Chloe wore an expensive and sharp business suit, which made her look sterner.
On the other hand, Nicole was used to wearing dresses, which added some flair.
In comparison, Nicole looked more beautiful and gentle.
“Nikki, what took you so long to come?“ The person behind her wrapped an arm around her shoulders and spoke in a casual manner.
It was Ian Carter.
Nicole was surprised to see him and casually brushed away his hand.
“Is your family also interested in this piece of land?“ Ian flashed a devilish grin. “I ‘m interested in you…“ Nicole east a sidelong glance at him. “Go away.“
The interaction between the two of them had a completely different feeling in the eyes of onlookers.
The moment Chloe saw Ian, the harshness she was exuding completely vanished.
Chloe tucked a strand of hair around her ear and revealed a polite and perfect smile.
Even her voice became softer with a hint of wariness. “Second Young Master Carter, it’s been a while.“
If Chloe did not make a sound, Ian would not have noticed her presence.
Chloe’s face stiffened slightly.
Nicole suddenly remembered her conversation with Yvette last night.
She quickly introduced them. “Carter, this is Chloe Snyder, President of Snyder Corporation from Cali.“
‘Weren’t they classmates? Ian’s such a goldfish! ‘
It suddenly dawned on Ian. He smiled politely and said, “Chloe Snyder? I remember now. You look so pretty now, so I didn’t recognize you.“
Chloe’s taut face instantly eased up quite a bit.
Nicole secretly sighed in relief. ‘I guess being a sweet talker still has its benefits…’
After the mingling session, everyone took their seats.
Logan sat beside Nicole and was tapping away on his phone sending emails.
Everyone came with the same purpose, for this piece of prime land.
The bidding started to be called. “$18 billion! ‘
It was neither Stanton Corporation nor Ferguson Corporation. Even Snyder Corporation did not make a move.
The price was raised up to $30 billion at this point. Thus, the number of bidders was significantly reduced.
Chloe Snyder raised her bidding paddle. “$35 billion! “
There was a short silence. $35 billion was called twice, but Mitchell was still unmoved.
Nicole felt that it was a little strange.
‘Why would Eric Ferguson give up so easily?’
Without much thought, Nicole signaled Logan to raise his bidding paddle.
“$38 billion! “
Chloe followed suit. “ $40 billion! “
Snyder Corporation’s development was concentrated in Cali, so logically speaking, they should not have such a strong interest in this piece of land…
While Nicole was still bewildered, Logan sent Nicole a message.
(Chloe Snyder is working with Ferguson Corporation. ‘No wonder! ‘ Nicole thought.
