The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 126
Nicole giggled and went up to Maverick. “Mav, please do me a favor as a gift instead…“ “What is it?“
“I have a project that involves artificial intelligence.
Since you’re the best expert there is, can you please help me with a part of it?“
Nicole sucked up to her second brother.
Maverick was a national treasure! If she asked him to join the project, it was indeed a little wasteful of his talent.
However, on second thought, it would also be a waste not to make full use of her genius brother!
Maverick nodded. “Sure. I have a month’s vacation. Is that enough?“
“Of course, it’s enough! “
Nicole took the bank card from Maverick and waved it in his face. “Then I’ll take this too. Thanks, Mav! “
Maverick was speechless.
Not far away, two tall men were walking side by side behind the Stanton siblings. They came to poach an international talent, so they squatted there by themselves all night.
‘Why hasn’t the assistant sent any photos yet?’ Keith Ludwig thought.
Keith looked at the woman and nudged Eric’s shoulder.
“What a coincidence! Isn’t that Nicole?“
Beside her was a man they had never seen before. That man looked calm and decent with a cool temperament. He did not look like a businessman, but an ordinary person at first glance.
Following Keith’s line of sight, Eric happened to see Nicole’s side profile.
Her long and wavy hair was let down and she was wearing a long black halter dress with stilettos that made her legs look even more slender than they already were. She looked so elegant and happy as she smiled fondly at the man next to her.
Eric subconsciously walked over just so he could hear their conversation and her pleasant voice.
“Why the sudden divorce?“ Maverick asked. “Because he died, “ Nicole spoke without a thought. “Oh.“ Maverick nodded emotionlessly.
Eric and Keith’s footsteps lurched, and their bodies suddenly stiffened.
The man who was supposedly dead was rendered speechless.
Eric just stared intently at Nicole’s back for a long time, but she did not seem to notice.
Keith laughed and patted his shoulder. “Don’t look, you’re already dead! “
The photos finally came in. Keith looked down and was about to remind Eric about their purpose in coming here.
As a result, his body stiffened when he saw the photo. It was clearly the man next to Nicole!
Keith screamed, so Eric frowned at him and caught a glimpse of the photo.
He looked just as shocked.
Hearing the scream, Nicole turned around and frowned when she saw those two people. ‘What sh* tty luck!’
‘A national treasure just appears in front of us like that?’ Keith thought.
Keith walked forward and forced a smile. “What a coincidence, Ms. Stanton! This is…“
He glanced at the man next to Nicole and could not contain his excitement.
‘He’s a legend that I’ve only heard about! The person we’re squatting here in the middle of the night for is gonna be taken away by Nicole? What’s more… They looked well acquainted! ‘
Maverick nodded calmly. “Hello, my name is Sunner.“
That was his pseudonym and his other identity to the public.
No one had heard of this, nor did they recognize it. Nicole raised her eyes and looked at Keith.
“Are you guys stalking me? Why do I see you everywhere I go?! “
Keith, who was suddenly attacked, retracted his hand and forced a smile as he defended himself.
‘Will Nicole mock me if I tell the truth? If I don’t, then I’ll miss this chance! “
“We’re definitely not stalking you… We just came to pick up a friend. It’s purely a coincidence! Ms.
Stanton, if you don’t want to see me, I’ll get lost now…“
Keith himself was puzzled as to why he was acting so servile to Nicole with Eric right behind him.
Nicole withdrew her gaze. “Then hurry up and get lost.“
“Okay! “ Keith said as he turned to leave. After taking two steps, he saw Eric coming up from behind.
Eric’s eyes were cold and sullen as he stepped forward. His gaze lingered on Nicole’s forehead for a few seconds.
He then looked at the man beside her and suddenly asked, “Sunner, are you guys friends?“
Maverick, also known as Sunner, nodded and naturally put his arm around Nicole’s shoulders. “Of course! She’s my best friend.“
He never lied.
After all, with Maverick’s character, he had a total of three friends since he was a child, all of which were his siblings.
“Let’s go,“ Nicole said indifferently and took his arm to leave. She did not even look at Eric.
