Read The Divorced Billionaire Heiress Chapter 168 – Nicole was looking forward to that moment as she wanted to see what Ines Xavier’s reaction would be.
“Nicole, don’t think that I’m afraid of you! You’re also relying on your family just like me, so what are you so proud of?”
‘We’re the same kind of people, so why should Nicole act like she’s superior to me?!’
Ines was getting more agitated and wanted to expose Nicole’s humiliation right in front of her face.
She folded her arms and lifted her chin to mock Nicole.
“Weren’t you kicked out even after marrying into the Ferguson family? Now, you just want to take advantage of your family’s power to get close to Eric just to get his attention, right? Is that what you want? Nicole, are you so cheap?”
Ines thought that she must have removed Nicole’s disguise and wanted to see how Nicole could still pretend to be high and mighty.
She waited for Nicole to become annoyed and angry.
However, when Nicole heard this, she did not have the slightest bit of anger on her face.
On the contrary, she just smirked and looked at Ines.
Nicole’s voice was cold as she said, “Ms. Xavier, this is common knowledge that you should know by now. The Fergusons didn’t kick me out. I’m the one who didn’t want Eric Ferguson anymore. Also… I’m not that cheap to change my face just to please a man, so I really can’t compare to you in this sense.”
She hooked the corners of her lips and turned on her heels without even looking at Ines again.
Ines took a while to react and finally realized that Nicole was humiliating her.
She stomped her feet and shook in anger. Her V-shaped jawline looked even sharper.
‘How dare she insult me?! What gave her the courage to do so on my turf!’
Ines was so angry that she became delirious. ‘I won’t let that b*tch Nicole get away with this!’
She glared at Nicole’s departing back and chased after her without hesitation.
‘I must teach her a lesson!’
Nicole stood in the elevator lobby and waited there.
Soon, the elevator arrived.
At the same time, Ines had already caught up to Nicole. She yanked Nicole’s arm and raised her hand high as she gritted teeth and yelled, “Nicole! Go to h**l!”
Before her hand landed on Nicole, the person inside the elevator suddenly lifted his leg and kicked Ines’ body.
“Ahh!” Ines screamed miserably as she fell to the ground and rolled around in pain.
When she came to her senses, she looked up in anger, but her face was incredibly pale.
Ines was shocked and in disbelief. ‘Eric actually kicked me because of Nicole?’
The man stood there with a stern face. He coldly swept a disdainful glance at the woman on the ground without the slightest bit of guilt or regret.
‘Is he looking at me like that because he doesn’t like me as a person? Or is it because I called him Eric?’ Ines looked hurt and bit her lower lip.
Before she could return to her senses, a figure rushed to the front and slapped her in the face.
The impact was ten times harder!
“You dumb b*tch! How many times have I told you not to cause trouble for me? Do you want to get your whole family k****d?!”
It was her father, Gabriel Xavier.
Gabriel’s face was grim and furious.
Suddenly, Gabriel turned back and bowed towards Nicole to apologize. His stance was incredibly humble and cautious.
“Are you alright, Ms. Stanton? It’s my fault for not teaching my daughter well. I’m very sorry to have frightened you. I’ll definitely punish her when I go back…”
Nicole let out a light laugh and faintly swept a glance at the wretched Ines, who was still lying on the ground.
“Since she’s here, just let Ms. Xavier attend the shareholders’ meeting as well.”
There was no room for resistance.
Gabriel was stunned for a moment, then immediately bowed in agreement.
“Yes, Ms. Stanton. This way, please…”
Gabriel respectfully went up to press the elevator button and bowed to gesture for Nicole and Eric inside. Then, he waited for the next elevator.
Ines, who was on the floor, saw this scene and felt like all her blood and energy were drained from her. She felt weak and anxious.
She was incredibly shocked.
Gabriel glared at Ines indignantly and gritted his teeth.
“How dare you mess with just anyone?! Why didn’t you just d*e on the operating table back in Korea?!”
