The inside was spectacular.
The extremely well-designed house with a blend of modern and traditional styles. There was a natural sense of rusticity.
This place looked like it was suitable for monks, not arms dealers.
Nicole recollected her thoughts and followed him inside.
A woman with a beautiful figure went over to the man. The fragrance was so strong that it seemed like she sprayed several perfumes.
She looked like a typical Southeast Asian beauty that was sexy and voluptuous. She was extremely gorgeous.
“Honey, you’re finally back! I missed you so much She jumped into the arms of the tall and thin man.
The man laughed, slapped her on the as*s, and picked her up for a passionate k*ss. After he had his share, he let go of her.
The woman slumped shyly into his arms, looking dissatisfied.
The man wrapped his arms around her waist and wanted to press her body against his.
Nicole stood there somewhat awkwardly. She did not want to watch a live show.
Could someone just settle her down somewhere first?
The tall and thin man made out with the woman for a while longer before he remembered that Nicole was standing not far away.
His gaze narrowed. He snorted coldly and let go of the person in his arms.
“Ms. Stanton, have you seen enough?”
Nicole’s lips twitched. “You brought me here bec ause you wanted to negotiate terms with them, right? When can I go back?”
Nicole figured out that this person brought her all the way from Mediania just to bargain with Eric Ferguson.
The reason they did not contact Eric when they were in Mediania was that they were afraid that they would not be able to leave the country once Eric was aware.
They were very vigilant.
The tall and thin man pondered for a moment, took out his phone, and dialed a number.
He waited quietly.
Not long after, a hoarse and low voice came through. “Hello, who is it?”
Nicole shuddered violently. It was Eric.
Sure enough, this man was trying to make a deal with Eric.
The man raised his eyes coldly and smiled at Nicole. He beckoned to Nicole, who walked over in a daze.
He did not make a sound. Instead, he handed the phone to Nicole.
His frank look was as if he was not at all worried that Nicole would talk nonsense. As if the more she said, the happier he was.
Everything was within his plan. He enjoyed this feeling.
Nicole felt that her voice was dry and hoarse. She could barely suppress the grievance and resentment in her heart.
She was living a good life, but Eric dragged her into this mess. Who would believe it if she told anyone?
The phone in her hand was trembling slightly. “Hello? Who’s there?”
There was a buzzing sound over the phone. The signal was not great, and Eric did not have much patience.
Nicole took a deep breath and tried to calm herself down.
She could not get angry because she still had to rely on Eric to get out of here.
As soon as Nicole spoke, Eric was silent for a moment. His voice instantly became tense.
“Nicole? Is that you? Nicole?! ”
Nicole gritted her teeth. “Eric, tell my family that I’m still alive and I’m fine.”
Eric was overwhelmed with ecstasy and excitement.
“Okay. Where are you now? Who took you away? Are you in danger now?”
Nicole glanced at the tall and thin man.
“I’m in Southeast Asia. I’m not in danger for now. They want to exchange me for Angie. Is Angie with you?”
Hearing Angie’s name, Eric instantly changed his expression.
His pupils shrank. His guess was not wrong. “Caleb took you away?”
Other than that, there was no other possibility.
Nicole frowned slightly and glanced at the man. “He doesn’t look like…”
Before Nicole could finish her sentence, the phone was snatched away.
