Seeing how rude Benedict was to Jordan, Sylvie glared at him and chided, “What’s so important that you have to ask him now? Jordan has had a long day at work. Let him have his tea first!”
Benedict rolled his eyes at Sylvie, the silly woman who paid no attention to the world of business, and sneered at her in contempt.
Benedict ignored Sylvie and asked directly, “Jordan, I saw on the news that you stepped down as the president of Ace Corporation. Is that true?”
Sylvie asked in surprise, “What? Jordan, you are no longer the president of Ace Corporation? Is it because your grandfather doesn’t like Orlando and wants to arrange for you to go to DC or New York?”
“I’ve long wanted to go to New York. When are you leaving? We’ll go with you!”
Sylvie thought that Jordan had stepped down as president of Ace Corporation because there was a better opportunity for him.
Without beating around the bush, Jordan said with a sorrowful expression, “My grandfather kicked me out of the family.”
Benedict and Sylvie were both astonished!
They had been taking care of Jordan and treating him like he was their son lately, precisely because of his prestigious family background.
If Jordan had been kicked out of his family, they would probably start being harsh to him like they used to in the past!
Jordan had some difficulty explaining, so Hailey told her parents about everything that had just happened at the company.
Heartbroken, Sylvie lamented, “Ah, how did that happen!?! My daughter’s life is so tragic, she just got pregnant, and now this has happened to her!”
Hailey tugged on Sylvie’s sleeve and told her not to say such disheartening words.
Jordan said, “We’re back to pack up our things. Butler Frank… Oh, I mean, Mr. Reyes will send someone to take over the house in the afternoon.”
“Hailey and I will move to New City residential estate. You guys should move back too.”
Before Hailey was pregnant, Benedict and Sylvie only came over once in the morning and in the evening.
After Hailey got pregnant, Sylvie moved in.
Sylvie and Benedict had completely treated this place as their own home in the past two days.
Sylvie wailed in misery again after hearing that.
Benedict sighed and immediately called to tell Diana about it.
After hanging up the phone, Benedict said, “Your grandmother wants you guys to go to her place to give her a clear explanation.”
Jordan knew that it wouldn’t be too difficult to fool Benedict and Sylvie. Still, Diana would be the greatest obstacle to his plan.
Hailey didn’t have a say in whether they would get divorced or not because they needed Diana’s consent.
Jordan said, “We’ll go see her after we move our things over.”
Benedict nodded and said to Sylvie, “What are you waiting for? Let’s hurry up and move too. You’re the one who insisted that we move here, but we have to move away again after just a couple of days.”
Jordan and Hailey had many things to move, and they couldn’t manage on their own, so Jordan called some movers to help move their personal belongings to the New City residential estate.
Jordan was filled with emotions when he arrived in the New City residential estate again.
This is where the two of them had lived together for three years, but after they reconciled, they stayed in the villa.
The last time Jordan came here was to pack his belongings after discovering that Hailey cheated on him.
In the living room, Jordan took the initiative to hold Hailey’s hand and said, “Honey, when we lived here in the past, you were still unwilling to share a room with me. You won’t ask to sleep in a separate room from me again today, will you?”
Hailey’s eyes were glossed over, and only when she heard Jordan’s words did she come back to her senses and said, “Of course, I won’t sleep in a separate room from you, but now that I’m expecting, we’d better not…”
Jordan nodded and said, “Yes, I know. The doctor has also instructed me to abstain from intercourse with you. I won’t touch you.”
After saying these words, Jordan recalled the photo taken by Elle!
In the photo, Cayden was carrying the already pregnant Hailey in the mobile home in the maple forest!
God knows what they had done inside!
‘Hailey Camden, I hope that even if you cheat, you’d have the decency to sleep with another man only after you deliver the baby!’
Jordan could only pray that the two of them did not do anything.
As Jordan glanced at Hailey affectionately, he said, “Don’t worry, even if I am no longer part of the Steele family, I will still work hard to earn money to provide for you and our baby.”. I won’t let you two suffer.”
Of course, he was just saying that to make Hailey even more convinced that he had really been disowned.
Hailey smiled awkwardly and looked at Jordan. She said gently, “Silly Hubby, don’t be so discouraged yet. Maybe Grandpa made a mistake. We shouldn’t think about how to work hard now, but focus on thinking of a way to make Grandpa acknowledge you again.”
“It’s getting late. Let’s go see Grandma.”
In Old Mrs. Camden’s villa.
After Diana heard that Jordan had been kicked out by the Steeles, she was so anxious that she couldn’t even drink a sip of water and simply paced back and forth in the villa.
When Jordan and Hailey arrived, Herman’s family, too, had arrived.
“Jordan, have you managed to contact your grandfather?”
Diana asked Jordan urgently.
Jordan shook his head.
“What about your parents?” Diana continued to probe.
Jordan said, “My father is not answering my calls. I spoke to my mom, and she has also been expelled from the family. She’s now in Australia, and she said that what grandpa said is all true.”
Diana let out a long sigh and exclaimed, “How did such a thing happen all of a sudden!?!”
Elle, seated on the couch and still wearing that skin-tight dress, laughed and spoke up.
“Since Jordan has been kicked out of his family, he’s a penniless man now, right? Haha, Hailey, you’ve only been the president’s wife for a few days, and you’re back to being a commoner again?”
Hailey glowered at Elle and retorted, “Mind your own business! You don’t even know to wash your dress when it’s filthy. There’s a man’s handprint on it too!”
“Elle, is your boyfriend a car mechanic? Why are his hands so dirty?”
The black handprint on her dress naturally belonged to Jordan.
That day, Jordan swapped cars with Salvatore, but the steering wheel and binoculars in the latter’s car were extremely dirty.
After returning to the office, Jordan was still overwhelmed with the fury of learning that his wife had cheated on him and had not washed his hands.
Elle coincidentally showed up at that time.
That’s how her clean dress got stained.
Herman barked furiously, “Hailey Camden! Mind your words, Elle doesn’t have a boyfriend at all!”
However, Elle wasn’t bothered at all. “What’s wrong with my dress being dirty? I just like wearing dirty dresses. Who are you to bother?”
After saying that, she silently glanced at Jordan.
Jordan didn’t dare to look directly at her sultry eyes.
‘This little girl Elle had humiliated me for becoming penniless on the surface but still wearing the same dress that she did when we kissed. That means that she has very likely guessed that this is all just a plan of mine!’
