Hailey looked at Cayden in astonishment. They hadn’t slept with each other before, so the baby definitely didn’t belong to him.
Hailey said, “What are you talking about? If I don’t get an abortion, how can I marry you?”
Previously, Cayden had once told Hailey that he didn’t mind the fact that she was pregnant. Still, his grandfather had an old-fashioned mindset. He insisted that Hailey had to get an abortion before she could marry him.
Cayden had long thought of what to say. “I’m sorry, Hailey, I lied to you.”
“You lied to me? What did you lie to me about?” Hailey froze in shock for a while.
Cayden hung his head low and looked like he was very guilty and ashamed. “In fact, my grandfather doesn’t know that you’re pregnant at all, nor does he know that you’re married too. I haven’t told them about these yet.”
“Regarding what I told you about having to get an abortion before we could get married… I made that up too.”
Hailey was a little confused. “Why did you do that?”
Cayden said, “Actually, I wanted to use my grandfather as an excuse to get you to abort Jordan’s baby. I’m not that magnanimous, and I was really jealous! I love you! I can’t stand that you are carrying another man’s child!”
“But I don’t want you to think that I’m a petty man, so…”
Hailey was caught between laughter and tears.
Holding onto Cayden’s hand, Hailey said, “Cayden, you’re not petty. You’ve been very magnanimous. It’s normal for every man to have such thoughts. You should have told me about it directly.”
No man would want someone else’s child, and even if Cayden told Hailey about it directly, Hailey wouldn’t blame him either.
Cayden suddenly said agitatedly, “Hailey, I read your health report and asked the doctor about it. He said that if you get an abortion this time, you might never be able to conceive again!”
“You know how important it is for our family to carry on the bloodline. Once you lose the ability to conceive, Grandpa will definitely kick you out of the family. When the time comes, I won’t be able to protect you even if I want to!”
Cayden was the infertile one, but he made it seem like Hailey was suffering from it instead.
She had learned about the dangers of abortions and miscarriages. Still, some women wouldn’t have their fertility affected even after several miscarriages.
However, some women are the opposite. Sometimes, fate really does play tricks on people.
“Did my doctor say that? Why didn’t he tell me?” Hailey asked anxiously.
Cayden was already prepared to bribe the doctor. “If you don’t believe me, I can take you to New York for another checkup. The doctors there are more experienced and authoritative. You can hear what he has to say.”
“Honey, I really don’t want you to suffer, but no matter what, it’s a life we’re talking about! Getting an abortion is akin to murder! How can we be so cruel!?!”
Cayden was full of righteous indignation, and no one could tell that he had been insistent on killing the baby in her womb just yesterday.
Of course, Hailey didn’t want to have an abortion!
Women are born with such an advantage. Regardless of whether the baby was fathered by Jordan or Cayden, it would definitely be her child.
Hailey said, “Of course, I don’t want to have an abortion, but I’m afraid that you…”
Cayden shook his head and said emotionally, “I’ve already figured it out and thought about it hypothetically. If I hadn’t met you now but after you had a child, would I have not fallen in love with you? Would I not have wanted to marry you just because you have a child?”
“The answer is no, I would marry you all the same.”
“So, what’s the big deal in letting you give birth to the baby? I’ll still love and protect him or her the same and raise her to adulthood.”
Hailey became extremely touched. At the very least, she knew that if it were Jordan, he would never be able to say such things!
“But your family…”
Cayden said, “My grandfather is quite an obstinate man, so we have to lie to him that the baby belongs to us. We can’t let our relatives find out the truth either. Otherwise, they will kick you and the child out of the family!”
Hailey was moved to tears. ‘How can there be such a good man in this world!?!’
In fact, Cayden did this to cover up the fact that he was going to be infertile.
However,poor Hailey thought that Cayden was sparing a thought for her!
“You’re so nice. You’re the best man I’ve ever met in this world!”
Moved to tears, Hailey leaped into Cayden’s arms.
Cayden stroked her hair gently with a sinister smile on his face.
Two hours later, Hailey came out of the hospital and called Jordan.
Jordan was doing push-ups as a workout in his hotel room. When he heard the phone ring, he stood up.
Jordan was a little surprised because Hailey had blocked him on Instagram and everywhere else. Hence, he thought she would never call him again.
Jordan answered the phone.
Hailey asked in a warm tone, “Are you alright?”
She heard Cayden mention that Jordan had offended many companies previously and were all waiting for an opportunity to take revenge. Thus, she asked him that question out of concern.
However, Hailey had been completely tricked by Cayden, whom she was totally in love with now.
Hence, her concern for Jordan was only symbolic.
“I’m fine,” Jordan said indifferently.
Hailey was very straightforward. “Uh, I thought about it for a while and decided not to get an abortion.”
Jordan was elated because he didn’t have to arrange for someone to keep an eye on the things going on in the hospital.
Jordan said, “Thank you, I can’t take care of you during your pregnancy, but I’ll give you $1500 a month, consider it as money for a nanny.”
After all, the baby belonged to Jordan, and he couldn’t do nothing.
Hailey said, “You don’t need to. I have enough money. Just keep it for yourself.”
She knew that Jordan had nothing to his name now.
Jordan also knew that the Camdens were a first-tier family now and weren’t short of those $1,500. “I know you don’t need the money, but I have to give it to you.”
“Suit yourself.” Hailey didn’t argue about this matter. “I’m calling you to tell you that I’ll be taking custody of the baby.”
Jordan hurriedly said, “No, the child has to be raised by me. It’ll be difficult for you to marry into a prestigious family with a child.”
Hailey said, “You will raise the child? How are you going to do that? You can’t even afford a house. How are you going to pay for his or her education?”
“You can talk to me about custody when you can afford a decent house!”
After saying that, Hailey hung up.
Jordan smiled indifferently. To him, buying a house was like buying a meal for ordinary people.
He didn’t care if Hailey was really going to vie with him for custody.
The reason being, once Hailey’s baby is born and proven to be his flesh and blood, Jordan wouldn’t have the right to raise or teach the child either.
The Steeles would send someone to take the child away and then put him or her through all sorts of training.
When the time comes, Hailey wouldn’t be able to stop them at all.
