The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 112
Eric Ferguson could not figure out why he felt so impatient and annoyed. ‘Under such circumstances, why does Nicole still have the guts to show up here? Does she still have expectations for Grant Stanton? Can’t she see that everyone just treats her like trash and only wants to avoid her?’
Moreover, those flowers she was holding were extraordinarily agonizing to him.
Eric looked at Nicole with a gloomy face. He said with some irritation, “It doesn’t matter what you’re up to. You’d better not choose today of all days.
Everyone is watching you, so if you really do something out of place, even I can’t protect you! “
If that was the case, Old Master Ferguson would not be the only one against Nicole, but also the entire Stanton family.
Nicole laughed out loud, but her eyes were cold.
“Protect me? Mr. Ferguson, when have you ever protected me? I think you’re just afraid of getting implicated by me and dragging your family into it, right?“
‘Aren’t the insults I have to endure from everyone all thanks to the Fergusons? Eric still has the cheek to say these big words now? Does he really take me as a fool?’ Nicole thought.
Hearing her words, Eric’s heart suddenly clenched up. He frowned tightly and knew in his heart that Nicole must hate him and his family, but he did not know how he should explain it to her.
“Nicole… “ Wendy Quade ran over from not far away and stood next to Eric. Her voice was gentle as she said, “It’s all my fault. I know that you hate me, and I don’t blame you for what happened last time, but please don’t make a scene here. It’ll just make it awkward for both sides…“
Nicole’s grim gaze swept over Wendy. She hooked her lips and said, “Blame me? Do you have no shame?“
Wendy glanced at Eric meekly. He did not look like he blamed Nicole at all. She paused for a moment, then acted aggrieved and pretended to be magnanimous.
“Nicole, you’ve already divorced Eric. Are you planning to hate us for life just because of the past?“
Nicole glanced at her coldly. “Are you even worthy enough for me to remember for life?“
Wendy’s face turned glum. She bit her lower lip and said, “Eric and I both hope that you can let go of the past and start over. Today is Stanton Corporation’s anniversary gala. If something happens, you will only make it impossible for you to keep your head up. The most important thing now is to look at the big picture! “
Eric frowned slightly. His gaze was complex and cold as he glanced at Wendy.
Somehow, Wendy’s words made him feel very uncomfortable.
Nicole’s lips twitched as she glared at the sc*mbag and b*tch standing in front of her. Each one of them was more hypocritical and abominable than the other, which made her feel repulsed.
‘Look at the big picture? Me leaving is looking at the big picture?’ Nicole thought.
“Who will that benefit? You guys? You want me to leave so that no one will know that you both had an extramarital affair? Save that pitiful b*tch act and stop being so nauseating. Both of your existence is the biggest joke around here.“
Nicole was very upset, but she did not have the mood to continue babbling on with these two and only left that sarcastic remark. She saw Yvette waving at her from not far away, so she carelessly swept a glance at the two people in front of her and walked away without another word.
Wendy felt resentful from being scolded by Nicole. She glanced at Eric from time to time thinking that he would speak up for them.
However, when Eric heard the words “extramarital affair“, his expression was visibly complex and cold, and his eyes were incredibly dark.
He stood there and watched as Nicole’s back disappear before him, then withdrew his gaze and turned to leave.
“Eric… Why did Nicole become like this? She seems to hate seeing us together. It looks like she’s had enough after pretending for so long…“
Wendy spoke tentatively and watched Eric’s reaction. ‘Why is he so indifferent to Nicole’s outburst just now?’ Wendy thought.
Eric frowned slightly and his tone was cold. “What are you trying to say?“
Wendy was stunned. She bit her lower lip, and her eyes became a little red. “I was trying to say that maybe Nicole has a point. We’ll be misunderstood by others if we appear together… So, maybe… Maybe I should leave first…“
She knew very well that Eric would not let her leave first.
For one, it would be impolite to the Stantons. Moreover, if Eric did not have a female companion by his side, it was inevitable that others would talk.
Wendy only proposed this so that Eric would notice her presence and would realize how understanding she was compared to the unreasonable Nicole.
Eric’s gaze was cold. He looked at his watch and said indifferently, “Alright, get the driver to send you back.“
After that, he turned around and left without looking back.
Wendy was left alone, looking lost and grim at the door.
“Wendy, come here quickly! My mother is looking for you everywhere…“ Ingrid waved at her.
Wendy ran over to Ingrid like she had seen her savior. ‘With Quinn and Ingrid around, Eric won’t send me away, right?’
“What’s wrong? What did you and my brother talk about that made you look like this?”
“Nothing.” Wendy smiled perfunctorily. Her face was extraordinarily pale. ‘Why did Eric allow me to leave?’
Wendy did not expect that she would shoot herself in the foot.
Eric, who used to be responsive to her, kept avoiding her lately.
Ever since Wendy returned from abroad, she felt that everything was different.
