Read The Divorced Billionaire Heiress Chapter 725 – Nicole turned around and went into the living room just as she saw Kai humming a tune and walking to the kitchen.
That was strange.
On normal days, Kai would not even step foot into the kitchen if Floyd did not force him to.
What was wrong with him today?
Floyd was sad for a while and sat in the living room, watching TV. He was recently into a period drama.
Nicole was just about to join her father when she heard someone coming down the stairs.
Maverick was walking down the steps as he sighed inexplicably.
‘Mav is home?!’
“Mav, did you come home alone? Molly didn’t come back with you?”
Maverick’s face stiffened. This was obviously poking his sore spot.
Floyd lifted his eyelids and did not want to speak.
Maverick touched his nose. His elegant face had a hint of embarrassment.
“I’m going back to the research institute tomorrow because it’s about time to get back to work. Molly’s staying at home for a while longer.”
Nicole nodded and watched as Maverick walked toward the kitchen.
Kai cheerfully came to greet Nicole. “Lil N, I made some milk tea. Come and try some…”
Nicole was speechless.
‘How can he offer me such a fattening drink at this time of day?! I don’t wanna get fat!’
Before Nicole could walk to the kitchen, she heard Maverick speaking slowly.
“This liquid has a lot of trans-fatty acids, which will increase cholesterol levels and cause cardiovascular disease. It can even lead to c****r in the human body…”
‘Great… My appetite is completely gone now.’
Nicole silently turned around and did not drink it.
Kai was silent for a few seconds. He was speechless for a moment before he said, “Mav, you really have the skills to be single!”
Maverick came out looking crestfallen. His face became gloomier.
Kai hummed a tune while he walked out and handed the cup to Floyd.
“Dad! I made this for you!”
Floyd did not even look at it and took a sip.
“It’s not too sweet…”
Kai chuckled. “Jules doesn’t like sweet drinks, so just make do with it.”
The corners of Floyd’s mouth twitched. ‘Huh… Does he want a beating again?!’
In less than a week, Jacob shared some good news.
Lincoln Zelman, Hector Leach, and others from Zico Company embezzling assets and falsifying accounts were brought to court. They were prosecuted and sentenced to three years in p****n.
The next step was for Stanton Corporation to restructure Zico Company.
Since Zico Company was united against Stanton Corporation’s staff at the beginning, Nicole had little sympathy for them.
They had received unemployment benefits and no longer had any contracts with the company, yet they still wanted to follow in Lincoln Zelman’s footsteps to take advantage of others.
Therefore, only ten people still had employment contracts with Zico Company.
These ten people that remained were staff from the lowest pay grade. If they left, they would get substantial severance pay.
Thus, they all chose to leave.
Once the dust settled, Nicole let out a sigh of relief.
Nicole would go to keep an eye on the project when it started. The rest was not a difficult matter.
Nicole was sipping coffee and looking at the status report sent by Jacob Cook.
Suddenly, her phone rang.
It was Yvette.
“Go look at Eric’s new post! Hahaha…”
Nicole’s heart thudded.
She had a bad feeling that the son of a b*tch Eric Ferguson did something to annoy her again.
Nicole subconsciously clicked on her social media account. Sure enough, the latest post on her newsfeed was Eric’s.
“I’m so blessed to be able to bake for you!”
The accompanying picture was a variety of desserts – peach pies, strawberry tarts, chocolate mousse cake, blueberry cheesecake, etc…
It was shaped into a perfect heart.
This time, he was quite euphemistic and did not spell out her name directly.
However, this picture of desserts shaped like a heart was already enough to stir up conversation.
