The Divorced Billionaire Heiress by I Wanna Eat Meat, Chapter 26

Chapter 26 What’s the Bet?

Phantom led Monster and Nicole to take
a bow after the performance. Nicole
smiled brightly and got off the stage with
‘Luckily, I still remember the basics! This
performance is still quite satisfactory.‘
Nicole thought.
Phantom and Monster followed Nicole
off the stage.

Monster went over and
patted her shoulder. “Lil Nicole, why don’t
you just join our band? We’re willing to
kick Demon out for you!”
Nicole lowered her head and laughed. “If
Demon hears this, he’d probably get up
from his hospital bed right now and fight

Monster was in great spirits. “l’m so

thrilled to perform with you today. You’re
the composer of this song anyway, so
except for Demon, only you can perform s
o flawlessly with us. Lil Nicole, you seem
just like you were three years ago!”
Nicole felt a trace of bitterness in her

She seemed to have missed out on
an inordinate amount of life’s excitement i
n these three years. Fortunately, it was
still not too late to get back on track.
Monster refused to give up and kept
persuading Nicole to join their band. “Lil
Nicole, if you join us, we’ll surely shock
the music world!”
Nicole was just about to reject his offer
when Julie walked over with a smile.
“Forget about it, you two…Nikki’s gonna
start her career all over again!’

As soon as Julie pulled Nicole out from
backstage, Yvette gave her a bear hug. ‘
Nikki baby, that was fantastic! You’re my
goddess! Do you know how excited
everyone was? Your violin is simply
Nicole helplessly pried Yvette off of her
body. lt was all thanks to Ian’s
arrangement that Nicole got to have such
a memorable night.

The three ladies thought that Eric and
Keith should have already left, so they
went back up to the second floor.
Unexpectedly, Eric and Keith were sitting
next to the Carter brothers as they stared
at Nicole weirdly the moment she
showed up.
Yvette snorted in dissatisfaction and
pulled Nicole to sit by Ian. “lan, let’s play
something. lt’s boring having to sit with

such eyesores.”
lan shrugged his shoulders. “Sure, the
night’s still young!”
Everyone downstairs was shouting for
The Lunatics to have an encore.
“I didn’t think that Nicole could play the
violin. Why didn’t I hear about it before?”
Keith could not help his curiosity. He was
genuinely shocked.

The moment Nicole went on stage, she
was so cool and confident like a queen
that was in control of the whole audience
“Why should we tell you? Who the hell are
you even?” Yvette scowled at him and
Keith felt attacked, but he indifferently
shrugged his shoulders. “Didn’t you say
that you wanted to play something? How
about poker dice?“

“Who wants lo play with you’”” Yvette
scoffed and was holding a grudge
against them for Nicole.
‘Stupid bastard!’
Eric Ferguson, who had not spoken.
suddenly said in a deep voice, “Nicole, are
you afraid to playjust one game with us°”
Since Nicole came upstairs, Eric’s eyes
had not moved away from her.

Nicole swirled the wine glass in her hand and
looked down seemingly disinterested and
treated them as if they were invisible.
Eric suppressed his shock. The Nicole
sitting in front of him seemed familiar yet
strange to him. At that moment, the
emotions surging in his heart were
incomparably complicated.
When Nicole was named, she
nonchalantly lifted her head and swept a

glance at Eric with a faint smile on her
face. “What should I be afraid of?”
Although Nicole felt that Eric’s words
were unexpected, she was not afraid of
him. They were like strangers now, so
playing a gambling game was not a big

Yvette objected discontentedly. ”Nikki,
why do you wanna play with him? He’s
clearly just trying to provoke you!”
Julie pulled Yvette aside and looked at
the ex-couple. “Don’t worry, Nikki knows
what she’s doing.“ ~

Eric Ferguson grew up as a member of
the gentry, so taking part in these social
events was like second nature to him.
Poker dice was the easiest game and a
sure win for Eric. Keith, who was sitting o
n the side, could not hide his smug smile.

The waiter set the table with two players
against each other. Nicole did not make a
move. Instead, she looked down and said,
“What’s the bet?”
