No matter how Benedict called out to him, Drew would ignore him.
Drew did not dare to provoke Jordan again. He had already been beaten twice today, and if he got beaten up a third time, he would be disfigured.
Benedict was Jordan’s former father-in-law, but now they were no longer related to each other. Hence, he was afraid that Jordan might turn his back on them and hit him too.
Benedict was different from Herman. He didn’t know any mafia members.
Hence, he picked up his phone and called his daughter Hailey. “Hailey, are you still at West Lake Hotel?”
Hailey answered, “Yes, Dad. I am.”
Benedict said, “I’m at your grandma’s place, and we’ve discovered that a Richard Mille watch that’s worth over 800,000 dollars has gone missing. Jordan must have taken it.”
Hailey barked, “That scoundrel! It’s no wonder he has the money to stay in the presidential suite of a five-star hotel!”
Benedict said, “Hailey, your grandmother is furious, and she wants you to bring Jordan back. I won’t go over. I’ll leave it to you.”
West Lake Hotel.
Hailey hung up the phone and exclaimed indignantly, “Great, Jordan, how dare you steal from Grandma? Watch how I deal with you!?!”
Hailey walked towards the front desk and asked, “Which room is Jordan Steele staying in?”
Seeing this, Tyler hurriedly walked up to her and asked, “Hailey, what are you doing?”
“What am I doing? I’m going to bring him back, of course. He has stolen my grandfather’s watch, which is worth over 800,000 dollars!” Hailey exclaimed.
Tyler knew that Jordan definitely wouldn’t just comply, and the both of them would definitely argue when the time comes.
They were in a five-star hotel, and his family was in the hotel business in the first place. What he hated most was people who created trouble in hotels.
Besides, Tyler couldn’t afford to provoke the owner of the West Lake Hotel.
Tyler grabbed Hailey’s arm and said, “Don’t go, just call the cops.”
Hailey shook him off and refuted, “Why are you such a coward? If you’re too scared to go, I’ll go by myself!”
After finding out Jordan’s room number, Hailey boarded the elevator and headed to the presidential suite where Jordan was.
Hailey could not be bothered to ring the doorbell, and she simply pounded the door with her tender fists.
“Jordan, you thief! Open the door right now!”
At this juncture, Jordan had just finished taking a shower and was blow-drying his hair. When he heard the knock on the door, he turned off the blow-dryer and vaguely heard Hailey’s voice again.
“Why is this woman still pestering me?! She came looking for me again even though we just got divorced!”
Jordan put down the hairdryer and walked over to open the door.
As soon as he did, Hailey was greeted with the sight of Jordan dressed in a bathrobe, his voluminous hair combed behind him. It was still damp, and his current hairstyle made him look much more handsome than he was when he had bangs. He also looked more domineering.
Jordan’s bathrobe was not appropriately worn, and the muscles of his upper body were clearly visible.
“Jordan actually has abs…”
Hailey Camden had always liked men with abs, and despite having been married to Jordan for three years, she never knew that he had such a perfect figure!
“Had I known earlier, I would have made him stay topless at home during summer.”
Hailey felt a little regretful. In her opinion, Jordan was poor, but he was handsome, and if he had abs too, he would make good eye candy.
“What’s the matter?” Jordan asked coldly.
Hailey stopped gazing at Jordan’s body, and she questioned furiously, “Jordan, did you steal the Richard Mille watch from my grandma’s house?”
“What Richard Mille watch?” Jordan was puzzled.
Hailey snapped, “You’re still pretending, huh!?! There’s a watch that’s worth over 800 thousand dollars, missing from Grandma’s home! You must have taken it. Otherwise, how could you have the money to stay in the presidential suite of a five-star hotel? Even I have never stayed in a presidential suite before!”
Jordan couldn’t help but burst into laughter, amused by the Camdens’ ridiculousness. They would never offer him any benefits and only go to him whenever it was time to take the rap.
Jordan said, “Miss Camden, I never took a single thing from your family, nor have I stolen any watch. Please leave.”
Hearing Jordan call her Miss Camden, Hailey’s heart was filled with sorrow!
For the past three years, he had called her “Hailey” affectionately. He would sometimes even address her with terms of endearment like “Baby,” “Dearest Wife,” or “Goddess.”
Yet, Jordan now called her Miss Camden.
Feeling aggrieved, Hailey Camden accused sobbingly, “Jordan, you’re so heartless! Why are you in such a hurry to chase me away? Is there a woman in your room?”
Of course, there was no woman in Jordan’s room. He wasn’t such an easy man.
However, Jordan said, “It’s none of your business regardless of whether there’s a woman or not. We’re already divorced.”
Hailey Camden was so exasperated that she pointed at Jordan and snapped, “We’ve only been divorced for less than an hour, and you’ve already hooked up with another woman! You’re using the Camdens’ money too! You’ve really let me down!”
Jordan guffawed. “Hah, so you’re allowed to cheat on me while we were still married, but it’s not okay for me to be with another woman after we got a divorce? Who’s the unfaithful one!?!”
Hailey was speechless. She stopped talking and barged straight in, intending to find the woman and give her a tight slap.
However, Jordan did not let Hailey step into the room at all.
Jordan said, “Miss Camden, you’re not worthy of stepping foot inside the presidential suite of a five-star hotel. If you refuse to leave, I’ll call security.”
