Nicole Stanton, the richest young woman in the world, showed up low profile at the airport but she was immediately swarmed by reporters. Reporter: “Ms. Stanton, why did your three-year marriage with Mr. Ferguson come to an end?” She smiled and said, “Because I have to inherit my billion-dollar family fortune…” Reporter: “Are the rumors that you’ve been dating a dozen other young men within a month true?” Before the billionaire heiress could speak, an icy voice came from not far away. “No, that’s fake news.” Eric Ferguson stood out in the crowd. “I also have a billion-dollar net worth. Ms. Stanton, why don’t you inherit my family fortune?”View More
After a while, someone brought over a meal.It was all of Nicole’s favorite Medianian food.Since Nicole could not move, Clayton slowly fed her. When the spoon was next to her mouth, Nicole gained an appetite from the soup’s aroma.Clayton finally smiled when Nicole was done eating.Only then did Nicole realize that he had not eaten a single bite.“Go out and eat…”Did he not just say that he was hungry?Why did he not touch the food?Clayton smiled. “It’s too troublesome to go out.”He then proceeded to finish her leftovers with gusto.Nicole was not sleepy at all since she just woke up from a nap.She watched as Clayton finished the food, packed up the boxes, and made himself a cup of coffee.Nicole then realized that Clayton was planning to stay up all night with her.She frowned and said, “Why are you drinking coffee at night?”Clayton paused slightly, then smiled.“It’s refreshing.”“Don’t drink it. I’m afraid you’ll die of exhaustion.”Nicole looked at him sincer
After a while, Nicole finally realized who “that woman” was referring to.Angie was the one who abducted her.Nicole pursed her lips and shook her head.The ruthlessness in Clayton’s eyes finally faded a little, and he quickly hid his emotions.Clayton touched Nicole’s wrist, which had gotten skinnier, and felt even more heartbroken.“That’s good. If she dares to hurt my baby, I’ll definitely get back at her.”Nicole was gratified to see Clayton like this. Perhaps she felt a strong attachment to him because she had just regained consciousness. She also felt aggrieved.“She has a big Tibetan Mastiff that’s really scary. No one can get past it.”Clayton’s eyes flickered. He smiled calmly and comforted her in a soft voice.“Really? Don’t be afraid. It’s all over now. You won’t see that beast again.”Nicole nodded and was not surprised.She would not go to that island again, nor would she go to any island ever again in the future because of her various harrowing experiences on i
Clayton held the phone tighter and let out a low “mm”.Grant could tell that something was wrong and immediately said, “Is Nicole next to you? Let me speak to her.”Clayton paused for a second. A ruthless glint flashed in his eyes.After a few seconds of silence, Clayton pursed his lips and said, “She can’t answer the phone at the moment. Big Brother, we’re now at the hospital.”Clayton paused and took a deep breath.He briefly told Grant about what happened.Although Clayton wanted to hide it, he knew that he could not, unless he took Nicole far away to a place that the Stanton family could not touch.Otherwise, this matter would be known sooner or later.If Clayton deliberately hid this from the Stantons, all his efforts to get the Stanton family to accept him would be wasted.Nicole loved her family, so Clayton could not do that.In any case, this was his fault.Grant’s voice was deep and cold as he said, “So, she almost died there?”Clayton was silent.Grant said, “I’l
The captain continued to do first aid without stopping for a moment.Finally, Nicole moved.She coughed heavily and spat out the fluid in her abdomen.Nicole was saved.The captain heaved a sigh of relief and fell to the side.Clayton glanced at the captain with dark eyes.“Thank you.”He did not say anything more and put all his attention on Nicole.“Baby, wake up. You’re alright now. I’m right here…”Clayton said as he gently pressed his face against hers.It was as if he found some rare treasure.That kind of cautiousness was heartbreaking to see.The captain turned his face away.Having known Clayton for so long, the captain felt that this “thank you” was the most sincere gratitude from Clayton.Clayton never regarded them as friends but as subordinates.For the first time, the captain received Clayton’s heartfelt thanks.Clayton lowered his head, leaned over, and lay on Nicole’s shoulder.No one noticed that his tears fell onto Nicole’s neck.His tears were pipin
A few minutes passed.The longer they waited, the less hope there was.The waves crashed on the side of the boat, which made it sway unevenly.Several large ships quietly appeared in the distance with their sails raised high.Angie’s bodyguard noticed the ships. His expression changed.“Miss, someone is approaching. Let’s leave!”Angie shook her head and pulled Eric.“Let’s go together.”Eric wished that he could throw this clingy woman into the sea. He hated this woman to death.He was clearly anxious, but he could not do anything.This feeling was as if someone threw him into the sea and death was approaching him.“Get away from me! Get lost!”Eric gritted his teeth.Angie cried and shook her head.The bodyguard was very anxious because the large ships were getting closer.Those ships were charging at them.In less than a minute, several large ships going at full force surrounded their boat.Quinn, who was already on Eric’s boat, was driven to Angie’s boat.Her face
Eric’s face gradually turned cold.Everyone was waiting for Eric to make a choice.In fact, they just wanted to see his expression when he made that choice.That was because everyone knew who he would choose.It was just that Eric, who was so invincible with no weaknesses, had to give up the woman he loved repeatedly. That kind of hurt made Angie feel happy.Eric’s love was not worth mentioning at all.He abandoned Nicole time and time again. Was this not a form of self-torture?However, every time, he had to force himself to choose the correct answer.Every second he hesitated, Angie’s face became gloomier.“Do you still want to choose her? Since you’ve abandoned her before, why are you still hesitating this time? I’m much better than Caleb back then. He let her die, but I didn’t.”“Is there a difference?”Eric asked coldly.“What’s the difference between you, Caleb, and Tyler?”His eyes were so cold and gloomy that he could freeze others to death.Angie pursed her lips.
Angie’s happy expression instantly disappeared.Eric’s attitude was as cold and indifferent as ever, like he could not tolerate her.Angie stood on the opposite side. She slowly pulled out a smile on her face.“Eric, I rescued them. You can’t accuse me like that.”Eric snorted coldly.Quinn paused, then stood up.“Eric, what Angie said is true. Your sister and I were almost killed by Falcon in Liberty. If it weren’t for Angie, I wouldn’t have been safe.”Eric’s eyes were cold and harsh. “The people I sent to search for you didn’t find anything. If you are really safe, why didn’t you contact me?”His eyes were filled with anger.Quinn was speechless for a while.Angie explained in a gentle voice. “That’s because it’s inconvenient. If she contacts you, my brother will definitely notice. How will she get to see you then?”“Is it going smoothly now?”Eric asked. Angie’s face was as dark as ink.“Where’s my sister?”Angie’s eyes flickered, and she lowered her eyes to look at Q
Was it Clayton?Angie shook her head.Nicole was stunned. “Eric?”Angie smiled and did not answer Nicole directly. She just looked at Nicole quietly.“I really envy you. Why does he always like you? He still can’t forget you even if you’re married and have a kid.”Nicole paused. She was speechless and felt like there was a lump of cotton in her throat.“Are you mistaken? I have nothing to do with him. So, you captured me here because of him?”Angie was silent for a moment.“Not completely.”Nicole was even more puzzled.Without any hesitation, Angie immediately changed the subject.“I heard that you gave birth to a daughter. Clayton should be very happy, huh?”Nicole glanced at Angie.She did not want to overthink this, but they were not familiar with each other, so why did Angie ask about Clayton specifically?Angie smiled. “They’re both fathers, but my son’s father doesn’t like him.”Nicole paused and looked up at her, only to realize that Angie was referring to Eric.
