Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Russell’s hostility towards Jordan made Victoria highly displeased.
In her impression, Russell was not such an ungracious person, so she wondered if he had developed an inferiority complex because of Jordan.
Victoria said, “Mr. Miller, my boyfriend knows that you’ve given me a lot of help, and he’s also aware of your noble status. To make sure tonight’s dinner is worthy of your status, he painstakingly went to the trouble of renting the most expensive yacht in the world to give you a treat in, to express his gratitude to you.”
“Acting in such an unceremonious manner doesn’t seem to be in line with your identity as the president of a listed company. Shouldn’t you be more gracious?”
Russell looked at Jordan with a sullen expression. He said, “Jordan Steele, since you’re so capable and you even managed to rent the most expensive yacht in the world, why didn’t you do anything when the Huxleys were targeting Victoria?”
“You just watched Victoria go for interviews at one company after another, only to fail again and again. You watched her get her heart broken again and again. Call yourself her boyfriend!”
Hearing Russell’s words, Victoria felt extremely conflicted, and she said, “It’s not what you think. It’s not that Jordan doesn’t care about me…”
Victoria wanted to speak up for Jordan because she knew that Jordan was just leveraging on the power of the Steeles to set up such a lavish meal this evening. It was actually all just an act.
She believed that he had managed to do it using his former identity as the scion of the Steele family.
Meanwhile, Jordan would need to have real money to deal with the Huxleys. Since he had been kicked out of the family, he naturally couldn’t do it.
However, what Victoria did not know was that Jordan was indeed able to stop the Huxleys by revealing his identity, just as Russell said, but he chose not to do so.
Jordan put down his glass of wine and said coldly, “Mr. Miller, it seems that you don’t like dining on a yacht. In this case, I won’t force you either. I’ll have the waiter send you to the pier.”
Jordan didn’t have to explain that to Russell at all. If he was competent, he could totally investigate it himself.
Russell was merely the richest man in Houston whom Jordan felt had no right to find out about his secret if he didn’t have the means to find out himself.
Billionaires may be supreme existences to look up to and curry favor with in the eyes of ordinary people. Even the government officials would be very respectful towards them.
However, in Jordan’s eyes, Russell was just like a fly that could be killed at any time.
Victoria and Russell were both a bit surprised that Jordan had hinted for Russell to leave so soon.
Russell had finally met Victoria’s boyfriend and his agenda today was clearly to destroy Jordan’s confidence.
Since he had yet to achieve his agenda, how could Russell leave just like that?
Besides, Russell wanted to slowly find out from Jordan just how he managed to rent the yacht.
Russell, who was initially serious, suddenly burst into laughter before turning to look at Victoria.
“Victoria, you’re indeed worthy of being someone I taught. The boyfriend you chose is unique and has a strong personality. I like him!”
“Come on, Jordan, let’s toast!”
Russell took the initiative to raise his glass at Jordan.
Jordan, too didn’t say anything. Instead, he raised his wine glass, and the three of them downed their drinks. Gradually, they began to chat.
Everyone was stunned by the sudden appearance of Aqua, the first and most luxurious superyacht in the world!
The citizens of New York City all came over to surround the yacht to see what it was like.
Hailey and Cayden had also arrived.
Hailey squeezed through the crowd and went to the innermost guardrail, her heart filled with excitement as she watched the yacht sail slowly on the Hudson River.
“Oh my God, this yacht is so beautiful, and it’s in the shade of green that I like! If in the daytime where the sun is shining brightly, and it is juxtaposed against the color of the water, this green would definitely be beautiful.”
Hailey liked the color green, and so did Jordan at first, but he soon disliked the color because of Hailey.
He wondered why the yacht was chosen to be in that color.
“Cayden, Cayden, quickly get me some binoculars. I want to see who is actually inside the yacht.”
Hailey kept urging Cayden.
Cayden wore a mask and sunglasses even though it was late at night because he was afraid that Maggie’s fans would recognize him and beat him up.
He walked to the side and patted a young man who had a pair of binoculars on his shoulder and asked, “Hey buddy, can I borrow your binoculars?”
The boy waved his hand impatiently and refuted, “No, no, I’m using them at the moment. The interior of this yacht is really luxurious.”
Cayden said, “I’ll pay $1500 for your binoculars. Will you sell them to me?”
The young man immediately put down the binoculars and looked at Cayden. “$1500? Are you sure?”
Cayden did not want to continue wasting his breath. “Take out your cell phone. I’ll transfer it to you.”
His binoculars cost only about $200. Since Cayden was willing to spend nearly ten times the price, the young man was naturally keen to sell it to him.
After buying the binoculars, Cayden handed them to Hailey.
Hailey quickly grabbed it and used it to look at the yacht.
“I wonder what the people inside the yacht look like.”
Hailey seemed to be really excited about seeing a rich person.
She happened to see Jordan, Victoria, and Russell eating.
Hailey was stunned speechless right on the spot!
“It… it’s Jordan and Victoria!”
Hailey froze in shock. ‘Why are Jordan and Victoria on the yacht?’
‘How did the two of them end up on such a luxurious yacht?’
‘Why am I just standing by the river and watching?’
Hailey was really upset because she had divorced Jordan, only because she thought that her future life would worsen if she stayed with him.
In the end, after their divorce, Jordan was on a luxurious yacht while she was standing on the shore and watching them from afar.
“What? Are you serious?”
After hearing what Hailey said, Cayden, too, picked up his binoculars immediately to look at the yacht.
He did see Jordan and Victoria, but he also saw Russell!
Cayden seemed to have had an epiphany as he exclaimed, “Oh, I know, this yacht must have been brought here by Russell Miller!”
“Russell Miller? You mean that middle-aged man who had dinner with Jordan and Victoria, and who’s also your grandfather’s sworn brother?”
Hailey had also seen Russell on the yacht, but she didn’t know who he was.
Cayden nodded and said, “Yes, that’s him.”
“Does this yacht belong to him?” Hailey asked.
Cayden nodded and said, “It must be the case. Remember I told you that Russell wants to marry Victoria? Well, to do that, he would have to make Jordan and Victoria break up first.”
“So, he must have taken the initiative to invite Jordan to dinner and even set up such a lavish scene by getting the most luxurious yacht in the world.”
“And what did he do that for? He just wants to let Jordan see how capable he is!”
“Haha, old Miller is really something. He’s already fifty, but he’s gone to such great lengths to impress a woman. I bet Jordan is suffering from such a huge inferiority complex that he doesn’t dare to speak anymore. Haha.”
Hailey knew that Russell was extremely wealthy and could totally afford the yacht regardless of its cost.
Hence, Hailey also felt that Cayden’s analysis was correct.
She patted Cayden gently on the shoulder before saying, “What old Miller? You’re so rude. Grandpa will definitely chide you if he hears this. You should be calling him Uncle Russell!”
Afterward, Hailey picked up the binoculars again and looked at the yacht.
This time, she was no longer looking at Jordan and Victoria. Instead, she was gawking at Russell.
“Uncle Russell is so handsome!” Hailey praised.
