The Divorced Billionaire Heiress by I Wanna Eat Meat, Chapter 38

Chapter 38 Compliments and Cooperation

The girls looked at Ingrid’s grim face and
quieted down.
The second floor of the banquet hall was
relatively quiet. when Grant brought
Nicole upstairs, an unruly-looking young
man in an expensive black shirt stood up
The two men shook hands briefly Grant
smiled and said, “Mr Lichman, it’s been a
while.”

Gerard Lichman laughed. The corners of
his lips hooked up charmingly “Hello, Mr.
Stanton ‘
Without waiting for Grant’s introduction,
Gerard had -already moved his gaze onto
Nicole. It was an appreciative glance with a decent sense of proportion that was
not offensive.

‘Ms. Nicole, you’re not only beautiful but
also capable. I hope that you won’t mind
that I put off our dinner and invited you to
this banquet instead.”
Nicole smiled. ‘Of course not
Congratulations on J8-L’s 5th anniversary.

I hope we’ll be able to work together
happily in the years to come.”
She made a double entendre.
Gerard smiled. “Mr. Stanton, may I talk to
Ms. Nicole privately? After all, if there’s a
chance for cooperation, the person we’ll b
e liaising with is Ms. Nicole.“
‘Sure.’ Grant was not surprised by this
request and gave Nicole a reassuring
glance. He then turned around and went
downstairs to network with others.

Gerard and Nicole stood facing each
other in front of the railing on the second
floor under the ambient light. The
handsome man and beautiful woman
talked eloquently and calmly.
‘Ms. Nicole, I’d like to know why you’re so
confident about this cooperation‘

Gerard held a glass of wine and casually
shook the burgundy liquid in the glass
Nicole raised her eyebrows. A strand of
wavy hair fell across her forehead and
around her ear The look in her eyes was
very alluring.
“Mr. Lichman, the conditions I gave are
very sincere. I believe that you’re also
aware of it. Compared to so many
investors, there’s no one else more
suitable than Stanton Corporation. To put
lt bluntly. you have the technology. and l

ave the money. Stanton Corporation
won’t expect J&L to be profitable in five
years. Instead, we’re looking at long-term
cooperation. I believe that in the next ten
years, we will be the ones to determine
the level of Al development in this world.‘
Those that could pay more than Stanton
Corporation could not provide more
benefits than Nicole, while those that
could provide more benefits did not have
the capital.

Gerard was not just a businessman. He
was also an engineer, so he wanted to
find the most suitable business partner
for his brainchild.
Nicole’s bold words made Gerard re-
examine the woman in front of him with
less playfulness and more solemnity.
Gerard bowed his head and pondered. ”
Vice President Nicole, do you mind

articipating in a three-way partnership
with another company?”
‘Who else?”

Sure enough, the only one who could

Eric was wearing a black sult with

expensive cufflinks that looked familiar?

indifferent, and unapproachable.
His gaze lingered on Nicole for a few
seconds before he greeted Gerard frankly.
Gerard’s eyes bounced between the two o
f them. “I guess I don’t need to introduce
you both since you should be familiar
with each other.

Ms. Nicole, my apologies
for not telling you in advance that
regardless of who our final partner is,
Ferguson Corporation will be involved in
the project.‘
Looking at Nicole’s puzzled gaze, Gerard
chuckled and continued, “That’s because
Mr. Ferguson has been funding all of my
projects as an angel investor since the
inception of my company.‘
