Clayton froze. His eyes turned slightly colder.
Nicole looked at Clayton’s face and knew that he was not going to tell her about it.
At that moment, she wanted to draw back her hand, but Clayton held it tightly.
He wrinkled his eyebrows and looked stoic.
“Have you heard something?”
“What do you think?”
At this time, Nicole did not ask him directly why he did not tell her about his financial crisis.
A “what do you think?” seemed to leave him some room for maneuver, but it also seemed direct enough.
Clayton looked at her for a few seconds. He looked frank as he lowered his head and laughed.
“What do you know?”
Nicole asked him back.
“Did you hear that I’m going bankrupt?”
Nicole did not make a sound.
Her silence showed everything.
Clayton squeezed her hand. His tone was a bit helpless. “I put out this fake news, so I didn’t tell you.”
Nicole froze and looked at him with a blank face.
Clayton nodded his head.
“Isaac colluded with my rival to set a trap for me and wanted me to fall for it, so I showed them that I did. But before I fell into their trap, I turned it to my advantage. They’ll only fall into the trap I set for them without hesitation after they find out that I’m about to go bankrupt.”
Nicole opened her mouth.
She instantly felt that her worry was superfluous.
How could a successful person like Clayton who had dominated Wall Street go bankrupt overnight, and for such low-level reasons?
This did not seem right, so she should have checked it out earlier.
Clayton looked at her with a smile. “Now you know? Don’t worry so much…”
Nicole rolled her eyes at him and simply drew back her hand.
“I’m not worried.”
Seeing her angry look, Clayton was not anxious or flustered. Instead, he just looked at her and smiled calmly and dotingly.
His smile contained such warm affection.
After digesting the face, Nicole felt that her worried heart finally settled down.
It turned out that Clayton was prepared for this. This was just a false alarm that made her worry for nothing.
Clayton’s tone was clear and gentle as he smiled and asked her.
“I originally wanted to do things quietly and didn’t expect you to hear about it. Who told you?”
He felt guilty for making her worry.
Nicole paused before she replied, “Eric Ferguson.”
She did not hide it for Eric since he did not harbor any good intentions when he told her this news.
Clayton’s smile faded. He narrowed his eyes for a moment and hooked his lips.
“Mr. Ferguson is still so concerned about me, huh?””
“He’s just looking forward to adding insult to your injury.”
Nicole snorted lightly with a resentful expression.
“Did Eric have a hand in Isaac’s move? Do you need me to help you? I can even get rid of him…”
Clayton looked at her strangely with a complicated expression.
“It’s hard to say. Isaacs hates my guts, so it’s expected if he did this. Whether Mr. Ferguson is involved in this is still hard to tell.”
Nicole was silent and did not make a sound.
Clayton felt that Nicole was a bit strange today.
“Did Mr. Ferguson look for you?”
Nicole paused. Clayton’s voice sank. “He bullied you?”
She glanced at him. Although she hated Eric to her guts, there was no need to make a big fuss over it.
Especially with Clayton’s back against the wall, it was better not to give Clayton more trouble.
“It’s nothing. I just saw him last night when I attended a cocktail party and felt annoyed…”
