At this moment, Amelia Chapman, who was at a spa club, immediately contacted Katie Young, Jared's younger sister after hanging up her mother’s call.
Back then, they teamed up to make Nicole lose her virginity and then had her driven out of the house. Now she and Katie Young had become best friends, but in the past two weeks, Katie had lost contact with her, and Katie Young's store was also closed. Hence, Amelia didn’t know what Katie Young was doing.
Soon Katie's voice came over the phone. “Hello, Amelia.”
“Katie, what have you been doing recently? Why is your store closed?”
“Oh! I-I’m traveling! Is anything the matter?”
“katie, let me tell you some bad news. Nicole has returned to the country.”
In a luxurious villa, Katie Young, who was enjoying the service of a servant on the sofa, was so frightened that she dropped her phone. She quickly picked it up, took a deep breath, then asked nervously, “When did she come back? Why did she come back? ”
“Why are you so nervous? You’re still afraid of her!”
“No, I’m just asking.”
“My dad told me. I don’t know what she’s doing, but I’m quite sure she’s coming back to fight over the family assets with me now, and she might cause you trouble too.”
A flash of viciousness glimmered in Amelia's eyes when she heard that. Why didn’t Nicole die abroad? That way, I won’t have to panic.
Everything Amelia enjoyed now was all thanks to her. She would never let Drake Butler know the truth as long as she was alive.
"I can’t let him know that it was Nicole back then.
“Amelia, I’m also afraid that she will retaliate against me. Can you tell me everything you know about her in the future? I’ll be better prepared,” Katie Young said to Amelia.
Amelia replied, “Okay, we will deal with her together in the future.”
After hanging up the phone, Amelia Chapman bit her lip. She was now used to being treated like a wealthy young lady, and she had only the best of everything. In order to make it up to her, Drake Butler gave her everything she wanted. Amelia became even greedier; she wanted more than material compensation. In fact, she wanted to be Drake Butler's wife.
It must be the happiest thing in the world to become the woman of a man like Drake Butler. Therefore, she would never allow Nicole to mess up her plans. Even Katie Young couldn’t know. Otherwise, Katie Young would be jealous of her and expose her. As such, she must have a good grasp of everything about Nicole, and it was best to find a method to make her disappear from this world.
At 5.00 PM, Nicole showed up at the kindergarten on time to pick up her kids. The little triplets happily said goodbye to the teacher and ran to her.
"Yayy, mommy has arrive."
“How was school?”
“It was great! The teacher likes us very much, and my classmates like us too,” little Drea reported happily.
“How about we have noodles in the evening?"
“Okay!” Pete beamed happily.
Nicole was very lucky to give birth to kids with such an angelic character. Since they were babies, they had never let her worry about them. They were not picky about food, they had a good personality, and they were kind and loving kids.
After shopping in the supermarket, they went home to cook dinner. The little kids played with Lego while Nicole cooked dinner for all of them.
At that time, the small apartment was full of warmth and coziness.
“Mommy, did work go well today?” little Elis asked with concern.
“Yes, it went well.” Nicole curved her lips and smiled.
In front of her kids, she never complained about life or work. Even if life was hard, her kid’s smile was sweet and could cure all unhappiness.
“Babies, is it okay if I take you to see your grandfather in two days?” Nicole asked her kids.
“Okay. We also really want to see Grandpa.” The little Pete blinked his eyes in anticipation.
Hearing that, Nicole felt complicated because she knew that Wanda Russell and her daughter would definitely not welcome the triplets. She would also not let Amelia know that her kids was conceived when she accidentally lost her virginity five years ago, and she planned to tell her father she conceived the children with a man she loved.
At night, Nicole slept with her kids in her arms. The moonlight from outside the window shone in, and the mother and kids fell asleep together.
Early next morning, after seeing off her kids, Nicole took a cab to the company. Bourgeois was located in an eight-story building in the city center, which was a little inconspicuous due to the even taller skyscrapers next to it.
However, this brand had gained popularity in the country. Now that it had been acquired by QR, its market value was enhanced too. As such, one month later, Bourgeois was invited to participate in a local jewelry exhibition. Several series designed by Nicole were selected to be displayed at the exhibition, which was also an effective method for branding purposes.
Soon, Nicole got out of the cab. Since she bought breakfast a little late, she paid for the cab fare while nibbling on the bread in her hand, after which she walked quickly toward the hall.
As the triplets went to school at 8.30 AM, she was a little rushed for work at 9.00 AM.
At the entrance to the elevator, Nicole tried her best to finish her breakfast before entering the office, as it was inappropriate to go in while eating. Thus, she filled her mouth with the last big mouthful of bread.
While she was chewing with her cheeks bulging, the elevator door opened, and a handsome and mature figure suddenly appeared in front of her eyes.
Stiffening for a few seconds, she swallowed the bread with some difficulty and walked in as gracefully as possible.
“Morning,” Drake Butler greeted in a low and magnetic voice.
“Morning!” Nicole replied, and the next second, she was startled by her own sudden hiccup.
While hiccupping, Nicole felt her face flushed red as she nearly choked on her bread.What was even more alarming was that the elevator had mirrors all around. Now, she had no where to hide her embarrassment. She covered her mouth, but her body protested that she ate too fast, and there came another not-so-elegant hiccup.
Drake Butler's deep gaze fell on her face through the mirror as he watched Nicole's awkward act.
Finally, when they arrive at the 6th floor, Nicole squeezed out of the elevator as soon as the doors opened. She felt so ashamed she wanted to dig a hole and bury herself.
Drake Butler's calm expression on his handsome face appeared to crack, and a smile was brewing in his dark eyes.
This girl is inexplicably interesting.
Nicole returned to the office and quickly took a few sips of water to cure her hiccups, but the humiliating scene could not be undone. She wouldn’t be this embarrassed if it were another man, but it just had to be Drake Butler.
"He must be laughing at me." She cursed under her breath.
"Nicole Chapman, there is a department meeting now."
Nicole responded, “Got it.”
In the meeting room, the department director, Felicia Evans, sat on one side of the conference room. She had eight designers under her, including Nicole.
“Wait for a while. President Butler will be here soon.”
Felicia took a sip of water and shrugged nervously.
Who would have thought that a departmental meeting would involve the big boss as well? This is so stressful.
“Nicole, did you know President Butler from before?” Alice looked at Nicole meaningfully.
Nicole immediately denied it. “I didn’t.”
"Then why did President Butler keep staring at you yesterday?" another female designer asked, dissatisfied...
“You should ask President Butler this,” Nicole responded gracefully.
“Work is work, and the company is not a place for you to fall in love, nor a place to take the back door. You all better remember it well.” Felicia stared at her subordinates sternly.
Then, Alice glanced at Nicole. In her eyes, Nicole was someone who wanted to seduce Drake Butler in order to gain the upper hand.
At this moment, the door of the office opened, and an imposing figure stepped in.
Drake Butler walked in gracefully, then sat down at the head of the table. Anyone who saw this man would think that God was unfair.
God gave him wealth that could rival the government’s wealth, a handsome face that all beings adored, a perfect figure like the sun god Apollo, a graceful and princely temperament, and the majestic aura of an emperor.
This man lived for women to worship and adore him.
Even Felicia hurriedly ruffled her hair while exuding her mellow and womanly temperament. Although she was 35 years old, she still had a dream of marrying rich.
“Let’s start.” The low and charming voice sounded cold.
