The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 29
Keith reacted with a jolt and quickly took Eric’s jacket to cover his face as he scurried to the car. “Get in! F*ck! Your ex-wife destroyed me today! “
When Eric and Keith got into the car, Keith quickly put on his clothes while complaining. “Your ex-wife is such a femme fatale. She’s so ruthless and heartless! I can’t beat her…“
Eric’s face turned cold when he heard his muttered words. He took out a cigarette with his slender fingers and lit it. The smoke coming from the cigarette made his eyes seem dim and inscrutable.
Yvette and Julie followed Ian out of the bar. They looked smug when they saw the two men in the car.
Ian took a few steps forward to the car. Through the car window, the corners of his lips hooked up into an unruly and playful smile. “Mr. Ludwig, it was just a bet, so don’t take it to heart. We’re still friends, right?“
Keith’s body shook with anger. ‘Hmph! Simple for you to say, you’re not the one that ran out n*ked ! I’m afraid my name will become the laughing stock of the city from now on! What a shame…utter humiliation! But…I brought this on myself…even if I feel wronged, I can’t complain…’
Earlier when Keith was still clothed upstairs, Ian looked at Keith indifferently. “You don’t wanna strip? If Nicole lost, would you have let her go?“
The answer, of course, was a solid no.
Thus, Keith was stripped off of his clothes.
Keith wanted to ignore Ian and let out a cold grunt. He arrogantly turned his head away to express his anger.
Eric glanced at Ian. His voice was deep and dangerous as he said, “Mr. Carter, are you venting out your anger on behalf of Nicole today?“
“Mr. Ferguson, you’re kidding, right? Isn’t it obvious that Nicole won by herself? You should be willing to lose when going into a bet. A big man like you can’t even compare to a lady, huh?“
Ian laughed nonchalantly and tapped his finger on the car window. He pondered for a moment and gave Eric a meaningful glance.
“Mr. Ferguson, you didn’t expect Nicole to win, did you?“
“It was indeed unexpected.“
“You were married for three years, yet you still don’t know her at all. I guess in your eyes, Nicole is worth nothing.“ Ian had a faint smile in his eyes. He took a deep breath, tilted his head, and smiled devilishly.
“But…there’s no need for you to get to know her in the future, because to us, Nicole will always be the best! “ Ian cocked his thumb and raised his eyebrows in a sneer.
Eric’s gaze was sharp and threatening as he narrowed his eyes. “Mr. Carter, you wouldn’t be interested in that woman, right?“
Ian laughed out loud and met his gaze openly. “I am.
I want to pursue her, and I have to thank you for letting her go so that I can get this opportunity.“
Eric indifferently withdrew his gaze and looked to the front with an expressionless face. Keith, who was sitting on the side, could not stand it anymore and said, “Why are you talking so much? Ferg, just drive! “
He really could not stay here for another moment.
Eric stepped on the gas pedal and drove away immediately. Keith saw Eric’s sudden change in expression and was shocked.
“Are you angry?“
‘It’s so obvious that Ian Carter is interested in Nicole, so what’s wrong with him admitting it?’ Keith thought.
Eric did not want to answer Keith and only said, “ Don’t you think that you should care about your photos more?“
“Damn it! “ Keith cursed. This was the first time he was defeated by the same woman twice in a row.
“Why did you have to marry her in the first place? There are plenty of women who are right for you, so why her? I honestly don’t know what you were thinking. We all felt so sorry for you, so lucky for you, we’ve never treated her as one of us.“ Keith muttered.
The car came to a screeching halt. Eric’s face turned a few shades darker and his chest suddenly felt uncomfortably congested.
‘They didn’t treat her as one of us? Was I like that too?’ Eric thought.
“Get out! “ Eric’s voice was icy cold. Keith looked at him puzzled. “Why?“
“I’m going to the office, you’re out of the way.“ Eric’s face was inexplicably glum.
Keith had no choice but to get off. While he stood in the cold wind and watched as the car became more distant, he suddenly realized that Eric was not going in the direction of his office.
On the other side, Yvette walked over smugly. “That Keith Ludwig should lay low for now. He really won’t back down until he knocks into a wall! “
Julie nodded. “If we don’t show him who’s boss, he’d really think that Nikki’s a pushover…“
Yvette froze for a moment. “But when did Nikki start playing poker dice, and so good at that?“
Julie and Ian looked at each other and laughed. Julie then explained, “When Nikki was studying in France, there was one month when she fought with her family, so they cut her off financially. Then, she somehow got tricked into working as a dealer at the biggest underground casino there. To her surprise, she learned those skills under the table and even made a fortune! After Uncle Floyd found out, he was so scared that he immediately begged her to leave that place and compensated her with a black card that has no credit limit…“
Yvette’s eyes widened in awe. She regretted not attending the same university as Nicole.
