The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 70
Gerard Lichman raised his eyebrows. “In any case, I was the one who overstepped in the first place. Ms. Nicole, if you’d like, you can come with me to meet our core research team. Not everyone will have the opportunity to see it.“
Nicole agreed without a second thought. After all, if she knew about the latest research technology of J&L Corporation, she could grasp the market first and would get a better grasp on the development of artificial intelligence in the future.
Once the three of them walked out, Gerard turned to Logan and said, “Mr. Logan, I’m afraid you don’t have access to the lab because it has our company’s secrets. Don’t worry, I will ensure that Ms. Nicole gets back safely.“
Logan looked at Nicole hesitantly. Nicole understood Gerard’s concern, so she nodded at Logan and said, “ You can go back first. I’ll be fine.“
Nicole and Gerard got into Gerard’s car. They sat in the back with the curtains closed, so they could not see what was going on outside. Nicole thought to herself, ‘Gerard Lichman is that cautious, huh? I’m looking forward to this visit even more now…’
“Mr. Logan used to be Grant Stanton’s right -hand man but he now works for you. It looks like Mr. Stanton really values you. No wonder you decisively
refused the idea of remarriage when I mentioned it
earlier. With such a good backer, who will repeat the same mistake?“
Gerard pushed up his gold-rimmed glasses and spoke with a smile.
Nicole paused and replied in a clear and cold voice, “ Mr. Stanton values me because he has a good eye. “
Gerard raised his eyebrows. ‘It seems like Nicole won’t give Eric the time of day no matter what he does…’
After twenty minutes, their car drove into an underground garage.
As soon as they got out of the car, the surrounding lights were as bright as day.
The building had a uniform shade of Morandi gray, which was hard to distinguish. Perhaps it was designed as such to be discreet.
Gerard took Nicole to the elevator. He reached out to scan his fingerprints on the screen in front of him. After three times of recognition, the elevator door finally opened. Gerard extended his hand. “After you, Ms. Nicole.“
Nicole was vaguely surprised and impressed. She went into the elevator and only saw one button to the 17th floor with no other options.
“Don’t I need to be blindfolded?“ Nicole joked.
Gerard laughed. “Nah, you won’t be able to take away any core secrets, so it’s fine for you to see it.“
Nicole breathed a sigh of relief and had an expectant look in her eyes.
Once they walked out of the elevator, Nicole saw a hallway filled with silver-gray glass. Almost all the walls were made of translucent material, but it was impossible to see through any of the walls even on closer inspection. It felt like a top-secret lab.
Gerard took her into a closed, empty room. He just walked to the opposite side of the room and placed his hand on the glass wall. Suddenly, some curved thin lines with some sort of data appeared on the glass. Gerard stood in place and aligned his pupils with a spot on the glass. After the iris recognition, the wall in front of him parted.
Nicole followed behind and saw another long gray glass corridor. If no one led the way, it would be like walking in a maze.
Soon, Gerard pushed open a door and said, “This is it When Nicole walked in, she saw a few people inside wearing white lab coats with their heads down working on something. Someone was spinning with a gyroscope-like tool, and someone else was talking to a computer.
“Everyone got off work. The rest here are all single “ Gerard laughed with a relaxed expression.
Someone heard Gerard’s voice. A man with curly hair looked up and retorted. “Tsk tsk… Don’t insult single people like us… We have feelings too! Oh, we have a visitor?“
Nicole smiled and wanted to say hello when she felt something rubbing her shoes. She looked down and saw that it was the little tiger again!
The little tiger looked at her and grinned. The stripes on its forehead moved. ”Hello , pretty lady! We meet again ! I like you very much… ”
