The Divorced Billionaire Heiress by I Wanna Eat Meat, Chapter 54

Chapter 54 Charity Trap

Ingrid Ferguson finally left the jewelry
store in shame and anger. Yvette
hurriedly took the card over and looked at
it left and right. She said in surprise, “How
did you get this card?”
Nicole pursed her lips and said, “My third
brother gave it to me on my 18th
birthday. He told me to bring it wherever I
go. I didn’t expect it to come in handy!”
“Why didn’t God give me a ‘Third Brother
‘?” Yvette held her forehead in envy and
Nicole laughed and gave it to her. “If you
like it so much, I’ll give it to you.”
“No way! This card is valid for life. It’s
invalid once it’s transferred, so you keep i

t…but you can buy me what I like…”
Nicole nodded and liked this idea.
After buying the necklace, Yvette happily
dragged Nicole around for a while before
they left the mall.
Nicole was in a good mood when she
went back to the office. Samantha Lindt
had been making small moves, but Nicole
did not care about it and let her be.
She knew that whatever Samantha did
could not be hidden from Grant’s eyes
and ears. Since Samantha was digging
her own grave, Nicole had no intention of
stopping her
After work, Nicole was about to walk out
with her bag on her arm when Julie Nixon
called her.
Once she picked up, Julie hurriedly spoke
and cut to the chase. “Emergency!

There’s a charity dinner tonight and my
company’s artist, Roman, needs a female
companion. I’m not in the country now, so
can you please attend in my stead?”
Nicole looked at the time. “Alright, I have
time anyway.”
“Thanks, love! I’ll get him to bring you a
dress. He’ll be there soon.”
After she hung up, Nicole raised her
eyebrows. ‘How is Jules so sure that I’d
Nicole informed Logan of her last-minute
schedule and went downstairs to wait for
the guy. Roman was a model and was
relatively reputable. If people in the
company saw her, they would inevitably
start gossiping again.
Thus, Nicole wanted to avoid more

In less than ten minutes, a stylish sports
car appeared at the office entrance
conspicuously. Nicole was speechless
when she saw Roman waving at her from
the car as soon as she walked out, then
she hurriedly got into the car. However,
Roman even took off his sunglasses and
sent a flying kiss to the crowd gathered a
t the entrance before driving off.
Nicole was exasperated and regretted it
immediately. She wanted to get out of
the car this instant!
She knew that tomorrow’s headline would
be about her again.
Nicole did not say a word, so Roman
laughed and turned to look at her. “Ms.
Nicole, we haven’t met but we already
know of each other. Thanks for your help.”
She flashed a perfunctory smile and did

not want to say more. “I’m not helping
you. I’m helping Julie.”
“No wonder she was so certain that you’d
help. You should be very good friends,
“Yes.” Nicole did not bother to say more.
Roman saw that Nicole was not in high
spirits, so he did not try to make
conversation again. They arrived early at
the venue of the charity dinner, so Nicole
found a room to change into her dress
while Roman waited at the door.
This private charity dinner was not
exclusive to artists, but also a place
where many celebrities and dignitaries
would gather. Nicole saw many familiar
faces. Once she entered the venue
holding Roman’s arm, she saw Quinn and
Ingrid Ferguson among the people in the

Nicole raised her eyebrows. Since these
two were present, Eric Ferguson must
also be present
‘This family is really out to haunt me!
The focus of this banquet was the charity
auction session. Nicole did not intend to
participate, but Roman was in high
spirits. He tried to make a bid for almost
every product in the auction but did not
manage to get anything.
Nicole was a bit perplexed and leaned
closer to ask him in a whisper, “Are you
here to raise the bid?”
‘Why else would he raise the price and
not place the final bid?’
Roman pursed his lips and smiled
mysteriously. “Julie asked me to increase
my exposure and told me that doing so
would definitely attract attention.”

Nicole was speechless.
In the blink of an eye, the last piece was
soon up for auction. The picture of the
item appeared on the large LCD screen. It
was an antique tobacco pipe with
emeralds that had a high clarity and
Nicole squinted and thought that this
object looked familiar. She seemed to
have seen it in the memorial hall at the
Ferguson Villa Nicole was shocked when
she recognized it. ‘Is this not Old Master
Ferguson’s most treasured object that
had been passed down as a family
heirloom for generations? Old Master
Ferguson protects it with his life and
won’t even let others take a look at it, so
how did it show up here as an auction
Her brain spun quickly and her eyes

swept around the room. She did not see
Eric anywhere, but Quinn and Ingrid were i
n front looking at each other with a smug
look, enjoying the attention of the crowd.
Nicole suddenly understood something.
Her smile deepened and thought, ‘So it’s
a charity trap…
Only a few people present knew about
the Ferguson family heirloom and
thought that this was just an ordinary
emerald tobacco pipe.
Quinn and Ingrid must have stolen it for
the auction and bid for it later. By the end
of it, they would gain both money and
“This is the charity auction item provided
by Mrs. Ferguson and Ms. Ferguson from
the Ferguson Corporation. They are very
generous to donate such a precious item.
Now, let the bidding begin! The starting

price is three million dollars…”
“Three million?’
Nicole laughed lightly. ‘Old Master
Ferguson’s precious family heirloom was
only worth $3 million?’
Quinn raised her bidding paddle. “$3
“$4 million…”
Nicole lowered her eyelids and waited for
a few seconds. Afterward, she raised her
bidding paddle without hesitation. “$10
