The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 107
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Ace Corporation itself was just a tiny corporation that was worth almost a billion dollars. Yet, the Huxleys were willing to use dozens of billions worth of assets to go against them.
Since the Huxleys wanted to destroy the Ace Corporation, the Steeles would try and make Ace Corporation survive.
In the next two days, both families invested plenty of money in the Ace Corporation’s industries to go against each other in the stock market.
Each family invested a few hundred million dollars!
However, when the market closed on Friday, the stock price of Ace Corporation remained firm in its place!
On the same day, Cayden received a call from his grandfather, Arthur Huxley.
When Cayden picked up the call, he didn’t dare to speak loudly at all. So far, he had already spent close to a billion dollars of his family’s assets to go against Jordan.
Arthur rebuked on the other end of the line, “Come back to New York! Stop contending with Jordan Steele! The Ace Corporation is worth just a few hundred million but you’ve already spent close to a billion dollars trying to make it close down! You’re such a fool!”
“Grandpa, I…” Cayden really wanted to explain.
Arthur said firmly, “You don’t have to go on! As soon as the market opens on Monday, close all your trades and let go of all the stocks you have! I said I do not want to go against the Steeles for the time being!”
Cayden hung up the phone and gritted his teeth.
Cayden smashed his iPhone against the ground in exasperation and yelled, “Why is Jordan Steele’s grandfather willing to support him endlessly with unlimited money, but my grandfather isn’t?!”
The Huxleys aren’t afraid of them at all!’
Cayden felt that if he closed his positions as soon as the market opened on Monday, all his losses would be finalized. He will never be able to recoup them.
He felt that it would make his efforts go in vain.
However, he couldn’t disobey his grandfather.
Cayden knelt on the ground in chagrin, his hair completely unkempt. At this moment, he looked just like a lunatic and nothing like a scion of a wealthy and prestigious family.
A moment later, Cayden suddenly lifted his head with a menacing gaze in his eyes.
“Jordan Steele, you’ve insulted my aunt, but I didn’t get to snatch your wife away from you. However, Tyler Collins has once insulted you!”
“Hah, I believe you’re still foolishly thinking that Tyler and your wife didn’t sleep with each other that day, huh?”
Cayden picked up his cell phone from the ground and found a 1GB audio file saved in a private file folder on his phone.
With a wicked smile on his face, Cayden continued, “Okay, I never cared to do such a despicable thing at first, but since I can’t defeat you, I can’t let you live well either! I’ll let you enjoy the pleasant sounds of your wife moaning!”
At four o’clock in the following morning.
Jordan slowly opened his eyes as he felt an urge to use the washroom.
He habitually took a glance at his cell phone before getting out of bed, only to see that he had received an email from an anonymous sender.
Jordan was bewildered when he saw the title.
“Hailey Camden’s melodious singing!”
Jordan was baffled, but he knew that his wife, Hailey, was a good singer. After all, she had specially learned music before.
Jordan turned to his side to glance at Hailey, who was sound asleep, and wondered to himself, ‘Did Hailey send this to me?’
Afraid to wake Hailey up, Jordan decided to put on his earphones to listen to the audio file.
Forty minutes later.
Jordan’s face was flushed, and he was clenching his fists tightly with his eyes full of menace as he felt a strong urge to kill someone!
The audio file wasn’t a recording of Hailey’s singing at all, but the evidence of her sleeping with Tyler!
‘Hailey Camden! You lied to me!!’
Jordan was screaming furiously internally. Although there wasn’t a visual video, he was absolutely sure it was Hailey’s voice.
Well, because Jordan and Hailey had been getting intimate lately, so he was way too familiar with the pleasant sounds of her moaning!
Jordan gazed at Hailey’s side profile, which was still as pretty and elegant.
However, at this moment, Jordan wanted to slap her face that swept countless men off their feet and made them fall head-over-heels for her!
However, after he raised his hand, he dropped it again!
He couldn’t bring himself to do it!
On the one hand, Jordan still had feelings for Hailey, whom he had always loved and pampered. He would never hurt her.
The fact that he had never hit any woman in his life was a matter of principle.
On the other hand, Hailey was now pregnant with his child!
Jordan was a martial arts practitioner, and he was afraid that he might lose control of his emotions and continue hitting Hailey further after giving her a slap.
The weak and vulnerable Hailey definitely wouldn’t be able to take a beating from Jordan, and she might even suffer a miscarriage!
In fact, there was a more important reason that Jordan decided not to hit Hailey or question why she had lied to him!
‘If I hit Hailey or wake her up now and question her about her decision to lie to me, she’ll definitely have a million excuses for her actions and definitely beg me on her knees again like she did the last time.’
‘But if I choose to be softhearted, I might not be able to bring myself to do it when the time comes!’
‘Even if I decide to have a heart of stone, Hailey Camden will definitely not divorce me!’
‘Besides, I’ve also promised Grandaunt Lily that I will never divorce Hailey unless she initiates a divorce!’
Indeed, the reason that Jordan couldn’t bring himself to initiate a divorce resolutely previously was because of the promise that he had made to Lily when she was on her deathbed!
Jordan was a man of his word who valued promises greatly. Since he had given Lily his promise, he wouldn’t go back on his word.
However, it was established that Hailey had lied to him and even had an extramarital affair!
Jordan really didn’t want a woman like her anymore!
Hence, Jordan had to hold back now and feign ignorance about this matter while finding a way to make Hailey initiate a divorce!
Jordan went to the washroom quietly.
He then called his grandfather.
His grandfather was in England at the moment, and it was about nine in the morning.
“Grandpa, are you awake?”
Jordan sounded like he was sobbing. He was feeling extraordinarily aggrieved, but he couldn’t question his wife loudly and ask her why she cheated on him, nor could he vent his anger.
Jordan’s grandfather was named Charleston Steele, a name that very few had heard of. The bigwigs of the local business industry who had seen him would all just call him Mr. Steele.
Charleston said, “Jordan, you rarely take the initiative to call me. What happened?”
Charleston could tell that Jordan was emotionally unstable at the moment.
Jordan said, “I’m sorry, Grandfather, I can’t complete the trial of Ace Corporation this time.”
Charleston asked, “Is it because of the Huxleys’ attack? Don’t worry about it, my dear grandson. I may not be in town, but I have many good friends over there. You don’t have to take a mere Huxley family seriously. They can’t make Ace Corporation fold.”
To his surprise, Jordan said, “I don’t want to be the president of the Ace Corporation anymore. I want to give up on the test this time.”
“Why? What exactly happened?” Charleston asked in bewilderment.
Hence, Jordan told his grandfather everything that had happened with Hailey during this period.
Charleston let out a long sigh after hearing his words!
