The Divorced Billionaire Heiress by I Wanna Eat Meat, Chapter 55

Chapter 55 Must Have It

The scene was in an uproar as everyone’s
eyes were focused on Nicole.
Roman looked at Nicole in confusion.”
What do you want this for?”
Nicole hooked her lips. “It looks pretty
nice, don’t you think?”
“I don’t think so.”
‘It looks like an ordinary tobacco pipe…
what’s so nice about it?’
Nicole noticed Quinn and Ingrid’s gaze on
her, so she smiled faintly and did not
avoid eye contact with them.
The Ferguson mother-daughter pair were
obviously startled. They knew that Nicole
recognized this emerald pipe.

Back then, Quinn had asked Nicole to
clean the memorial hall alone one night.
Quinn deliberately took out the pipe from
the safe and placed it on a high shelf as
she hoped that Nicole would”
accidentally” bump into the shelf and
break the emerald pipe. If that happened,
Old Master Ferguson would certainly kick
Nicole out of their family. However,
Nicole was smart enough not to touch it.
If not for the surveillance camera in the
memorial hall, Quinn would have broken it
herself and falsely blamed it on Nicole.
Unfortunately, her plan failed because Old
Master Ferguson valued this pipe more
than his own life!
Thus, Quinn never found the opportunity
This time, the Ferguson mother-daughter
pair stole the emerald pipe and put it out

for auction because Ingrid had lost her
reputation when Nicole told the world
that Ingrid had stolen the “Daydream”
necklace to gamble. After Ingrid came
back to the country, she was repeatedly
humiliated by Nicole, so much so that
Ingrid was almost ostracized by the
gentry circle.
Ingrid wanted to regain a firm foothold
among the high society ladies circle and
find an opportunity to become the focus o
f the group again. As the Young Lady of
the Ferguson family, Ingrid must always b
e the center of attention.
This charity auction banquet was a good
opportunity to help Ingrid redeem her
image and maintain her persona as a
high-society lady”. This was the most
suitable occasion.
Thus, Ingrid begged her mother to

secretly take out her grandfather’s
emerald pipe as an auction item. The
value of the emerald pipe was enough to
put Ingrid in the spotlight.
The people who knew about their family
heirloom would not dare to bid for it for
fear of Old Master Ferguson. Those who
did not know about it would not bid for it
either, so her plan was perfect. She would
take it out and bid it back herself as a
show to gain back her reputation.
However, Ingrid and Quinn never thought
that they would meet Nicole here…
Quinn was anxious as Nicole was clearly
not holding back on her bidding price.
Their limit was only $10 million because
the two of them had no power in the
Ferguson family. They only got a monthly
allowance and did not have much in
personal savings, so they obviously could

not continue bidding.
Nicole’s arrival was completely
unexpected. Quinn had assumed that
even if someone bid on the emerald pipe, i
t would not exceed $10 million. Even if it
did exceed $10 million, no one would
have the guts to fight with the Ferguson
However, Nicole was different.
She came for them, the Ferguson family!
“$10 million going once!” The host’s eyes
lit up as he shouted.
Ingrid nervously tugged at Quinn’s
clothes and whispered something
Quinn also pretended to be calm and
turned back to glare at Nicole fiercely as
a warning.
Nicole raised her eyebrows, smiled

faintly, and looked at the item on the
stage. ‘I must get my hands on it!
“$10 million going twice!”
The host looked at the audience, but
there was no sound.
They did not dare to compete with Mrs.
Ferguson to steal the limelight, nor did
they want to waste money on an emerald
pipe that they could not get their hands o
The host’s eyes swept across the hall and
saw that Quinn had raised her bidding
“$11 million.” Quinn was calm and
I thought they’d cap it at $10 million. I
didn’t think that Quinn wanted to continue
bidding… Nicole thought.

“$12 million!” Nicole followed. She
wanted to test their patience.
The phone in her hand buzzed. Nicole
glanced at the phone number and knew
who it was even though there was no
caller ID
‘Ingrid Ferguson?’ Nicole gently hooked
her lips and refused to answer. She even
blocked Ingrid while she was at it.
“$13 million,” Quinn called out again. She
was visibly sitting on pins and needles at
this moment
The host seemed to understand that this
was a game for both sides, and the
atmosphere in the hall began to get tense
He raised his voice, “Okay, $13 million.
Miss, would you like to bid again?”
Nicole did not respond, so the host

thought that she had given up. “$13
million going once!”
“$13 million going twice!”
Quinn and Ingrid breathed a sigh of relief.
“$15 million!” Nicole immediately
interrupted before the last call.
“How does that feel?’ Nicole thought.
Quinn’s eyes were so flustered. She
lowered her head to speak to Ingrid.
Without hesitation, Ingrid looked like she
had made a major decision. “$20 million!”
‘Do they think that my limit is $20 million?
‘Nicole thought.
Even Roman got nervous and looked at
Nicole. “Do you need help?”
Nicole smiled and raised an eyebrow. “N
o, this is nothing to me.”

She raised her paddle again. “$30 million!”
The crowd was in an uproar,
Nicole was no longer bothered to scare
Quinn and Ingrid bit by bit. She wanted
them to stop bidding.
The lights flickered and shone on Quinn
and Ingrid’s pale and gloomy faces
“Okay, $30 million going once!”
“$30 million going twice!”
No one in the room made a sound.
Nicole knew that she won.
“$30 million sold! Congratulations to this
young lady. The proceeds will be donated
to Elementary School of Hope…”
The crowd began to applaud and finally
broke the suffocating and tense

atmosphere. Nicole greeted everyone
with a decent smile and smiled widely at
the two women in front of her. ‘What a
great day today…
After greeting everyone, Nicole and
Roman went backstage to get the item. A
s expected, Quinn and Ingrid still refused t
o give up and were waiting for her there.
