The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 45
Ian Carter glanced sideways at Eric Ferguson. He smiled smugly and recklessly as if he was mocking Eric’s current situation.
‘Look at him! Even Eric Ferguson has his day…’ Keith Ludwig finally caught up to Eric. He followed
Eric’s gaze and saw Nicole’s departing back. “Tsk tsk. Ferg, since you’re already divorced, don’t regret it. This is all that woman’s cheap tricks anyway.“
Eric cast a sidelong glance at him and said, “Do I need you to teach me how to do things?“
Keith suddenly felt a chill on his back and did not dare to speak for a while.
‘That woman humiliated Eric in front of everyone. Even I feel like dying from anger, so let alone Eric! Although what Ingrid said was indeed a little overboard, that woman asked for it since she begged to marry Eric in the first place! Was it not her own fault then?’
When Nicole first entered the hall, many came over to mingle with her perhaps because of her position in the Stanton Corporation or because of the drama tonight.
Since Nicole came here to expand her network and find out insider information, she was happy to chat with people. She would clink her wine glass with every one of them and take a small sip. No one forced her to drink.
After the mingling session, Nicole still felt a little tipsy even though Ian had taken a few drinks on Nicole’s behalf. She then found an opportunity and slipped to the bathroom.
Nicole washed her face with cold water and felt the stuffiness in her chest dissipate. Just when she was about to wipe her face with a paper towel, Nicole heard Ingrid’s voice gradually approaching from outside.
“I won’t let that b*tch Nicole get away so easily! She humiliated my family and is so shameless to surround herself with a continuous stream of men! Does she think she’ll be a strong independent woman by sleeping her way to the top? She should just take a look in the mirror to see what a wretch she is! “
Ingrid Ferguson and her groupie walked in and saw Nicole leaning on the sink, staring at them with her arms crossed and a cold smile on her face.
For a moment, Ingrid was stunned and instantly regained her nasty look as she coldly snorted. “Ugh, I have such bad luck seeing this b*tch everywhere I go.”
“I feel the same way.“ Nicole could not help but laugh.
Ingrid raised her eyebrows. “Who are you to say that? Others might not know your true nature, but do you really think that you can erase the past and start over? You’re just an uncouth lowlife who just smells of poverty wherever you go.“
Nicole hooked her lips and did not turn around, but she still accurately turned on the tap behind her. Her action was smooth and quick. Water flowed out, but no one knew the meaning of her action.
Perhaps she was just trying to keep her words from being overheard.
“Ms. Ferguson, you should be thanking God that I didn’t take the initiative to make a fuss about the previous things you did to me, so don’t come and find trouble for yourself.” Her voice was extremely cold, but the curvature of her lips made her look much gentler.
“What did you say? How dare you warn me? I’m the Young Lady of the Ferguson family, but what are you? After getting kicked out of my family, you’re nothing!”
Ingrid glared at Nicole with a glum face. Without Eric’s presence, Ingrid was not afraid of anything anymore.
This Young Lady Ferguson had always looked down on her “Sister-in-Law” Since the very beginning, so that sense of superiority had been engraved in her.
“How could this nobody Nicole even quality to be on an equal footing with me at home and be respected? Can she help in Brother’s career or can her family be of any assistance?”
In the past three years, Ingrid had deliberately asked Nicole to hand wash her clothes. When it was damaged, she would scold Nicole. Ingrid did not even bother to stretch her hands to pour herself a glass of water and preferred to order Nicole around instead. If she was not satisfied, she would ger Nicole to redo it.
The countless times of humiliation and Nicole’s forbearance and silence made Ingrid addicted to this feeling. Thus, Ingrid took it for granted and felt that Nicole deserved to be servile and submissive.
Even after the divorce, Ingrid felt that Nicole could not refute her because Nicole would always be inferior to her.
“Only you think that the Fergusons are unbeatable. I really wonder where you got your superiority complex…“
Nicole scoffed and showed a playful smile.
“Hah! Why didn’t you say that when you were so desperate to marry my brother? Nicole, have you forgotten how shameless you were? You’d rather be a mobile blood bank for Wendy just to marry my brother. This is your glorious past…“ Ingrid could not help but provoke Nicole with the past.
Nicole collected her smile. Her face was calm and somewhat cold.
“Ms. Ferguson, I wasn’t being shameless. I was just blind! If you want to mention the past again, then I’ll get really calculative with you.“
‘Calculative? What’s this broke woman trying to be calculative about?’ Ingrid thought. “Do you think I’m afraid of you? Nicole, if you have the guts, come at me then! Ah — “ Ingrid suddenly shrieked.
