The Divorced Billionaire Heiress Chapter 1374

Read The Divorced Billionaire Heiress Chapter 1374 – Her Taste in Men

Nicole thought that the gentlemanly Clayton, who had always been content with just a little taste, was a man who was not charmed by women.

Since they started dating, Clayton had not done anything more than kissing and hugging her.

They had a platonic love.

It felt nice to not have a s****l relationship. They did not have to measure interests, nor would it lead to a series of irreversible situations.

After all, their identities were special. Every move they made would impact the huge capital behind them.

Thus, neither of them would easily go all out.

Nicole suddenly realized that Clayton, who looked like the perfect gentleman, was no different from other men once he lost control.

She blinked and waited for his answer.

Clayton ‘s dark eyes sank. He looked at Nicole for a long time before he spoke frankly in a hoarse voice.

“Yes, I do.”

Clayton really wanted to, but he also knew that Nicole was not just any woman.

Every move she made would be tied to the entire Stanton family that backed her.

Before his prospects were certain, Clayton had to be responsible for her. Not a single thing could go wrong.

More importantly, Clayton did not want to put Nicole into the limelight of public opinion.

Once their relationship was truly announced to the public, people were bound to compare Clayton with Eric.

Clayton did not mind this.

What Clayton cared about was that he was not good enough for Nicole, that her taste in men would be criticized.

Clayton could not tolerate this.

After a long silence, Nicole breathed slowly and looked at him. The both of them stared at each other for a long time.

The office lights were lit, and they seemed to be the only ones left in the whole building.

Nicole lowered her eyes and pondered for a while.

Just as she was about to open her mouth to break the silence, the phone suddenly rang.

It was Nicole’s phone that was on the desk.

The two people finally moved out of their rigid posture.

Clayton got up from her body and did not move. The light shone on his warm face, which made his handsome features look even more sculpted and deep.

Nicole did not know if it was an illusion, but she felt like this time after Clayton came back, he had a hint of coldness.

However, this look was gone in a flash. It seemed like she was mistaken.

Nicole’s gaze lingered on Clayton for a moment before it shifted to her phone.

No one else but the Stanton family would call her at this hour, so she must answer it.

Clayton took the phone over and handed it to Nicole. He clearly saw the caller ID.

It was Floyd Stanton.

The fire in Clayton’s heart was gradually suppressed, and the panic in his mind quickly calmed down.

It was as if they did not just have that conversation earlier.

Clayton turned around to get Nicole’s bag and coat, ready to send her home.

Nicole picked up the phone. “Daddy?”

“When are you coming home? Should I send a car to pick you up?”

Floyd seemed a little tired. Even his voice was a little hoarse.

Nicole took a look at the time. “It’s so late now, so I’ll just go back to my apartment and sleep. You guys should rest early!”

Her tone was very natural like there was no change in emotion.

Clayton, who was waiting at the side, changed his expression slightly and raised his eyes to look at her.

Nicole was also looking at him.

When they locked eyes, their heartbeats involuntarily accelerated.

Floyd muttered a few words telling Nicole to take care of herself and hung up the phone.

Nicole stood up and walked over.

Clayton unfolded her coat, and Nicole reached out to put it on.

Naturally, no one spoke.

There seemed to be some sort of tension between them.

It was ambiguous.

They walked out the door.

Logan already got off work and left from the time Clayton came.

Logan knew that Nicole could not possibly continue to work overtime. Since there was nothing for him to do here, Logan simply went off-duty.
