The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 243
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Hailey was already behaving like she was the head of the Camdens.
After all, the Camdens had risen from a second-rate family with a few hundred million dollars to a powerful family worth nearly 4 billion dollars in assets today, all thanks to Hailey.
Her marriages to the wealthy men, Jordan and Cayden, brought them the glory they enjoyed today.
The status of Hailey’s family in Diana’s heart has also surpassed that of Elle’s family.
Hailey was clearly still resentful and disgruntled about the fact that Jordan and Elle had had a fling, so she deliberately mentioned Elle in a bid to humiliate Jordan by asking him to be a live-in husband again.
Jordan was really annoyed by Hailey and Sylvie, but Jordan had been married to Hailey for three years and had long known the right response to give to spite her.
Jordan laughed and replied, “Really? Elle still fancies me? Elle has such a great figure. If Victoria really dumps me one day, of course, I’d be willing to marry Elle!”
Hailey’s face turned red with fury as soon as she heard Jordan singing praises about Elle’s good figure!
Hailey and Elle had been competing with each other since they were young, and the one thing that Hailey could not defeat her in was her figure!
In the past, she would never be able to trump Elle, but now, she was pregnant and could no longer compete with Elle in terms of figure.
Hence, she felt inferior and jealous!
She felt that Jordan had cheated on her because Elle had a good figure!
Hailey threatened furiously, “If you dare to get together with Elle, I’ll tell my grandmother to expel her from the family immediately!”
One second, Hailey was proactively “setting up” Elle and Jordan together. Still, when Jordan agreed, Hailey snapped and lost her temper.
Sylvie was puzzled. “What do you mean? How did Jordan and Elle hook up? Jordan, did you start harboring designs on Elle a long time ago? You bastard, how dare you covet Hailey’s cousin while you were married to Hailey, who’s so perfect?”
Hailey didn’t inform her family that Jordan and Elle “slept with each other” previously, so Sylvie didn’t know about it either.
Jordan humphed coldly and exclaimed, “My girlfriend, Victoria, and her sister, Emily, are far prettier than Hailey and Elle!”
“I’m going back. You guys pack up and get ready to leave!”
After saying that, Jordan pushed the door and left.
“Who is Emily!?”
Hailey became jealous again, and only then did she know that Victoria had a younger sister. Besides, Jordan even said that she was very pretty!
“No wonder this bastard Jordan refuses to stop sponging off of Victoria. Not only is his girlfriend beautiful, but her sister is also. He must be trying to get the best of both worlds!”
When he returned to the villa, Jordan told Victoria about this matter.
“Victoria, if you don’t want me to go, I can turn her down,” Jordan said.
Victoria was Jordan’s current girlfriend, and he had to take care of her feelings first.
If Victoria did not like the idea of Jordan being alone with Hailey, he wouldn’t send her to the hospital.
However, Victoria was a magnanimous person. She said, “Cayden is not a good man. Besides, the baby is not his child, so he will definitely not care about Hailey.”
“It’s not easy for a woman to carry a baby for nine months, and you, as the father of the child, should help her as much as you can.”
“Take her to the hospital. I happen to have some work to do.”
Subsequently, Jordan drove Hailey and Sylvie, who had tagged along, to the hospital in her Audi.
Hailey rode shotgun while Sylvie took the backseat.
As soon as Hailey got into the car, the music started playing. She said with a smile, “Ah, it’s been a long time since I experienced this feeling of you driving Mom and me around. Hehe.”
Jordan had driven that Audi for three years, during which he ferried Hailey and her parents around.
Everything in the car was way too familiar.
Jordan was also feeling rather emotional because he did not expect that he would have the opportunity to drive this car again after leaving the Camdens.
Sylvie lamented, “Yes, Jordan has great driving skills, and he never slams the brakes abruptly. I feel really comfortable when he drives, and I always fall asleep during the ride.”
“Unfortunately, how did you get expelled from the family, Jordan? Otherwise, you’d still be my son-in-law now.”
Jordan humped coldly, feeling really lucky to have left the Camdens and stopped being her son-in-law!
The car had already started to move, and Sylvie asked again, “Jordan, I heard that Victoria’s parents have both passed away, and her only kin left is her sister. Is that true?”
“Yes,” Jordan responded softly.
Sylvie kept shaking her head non-stop. “Jordan, you have, after all, been my son-in-law for three years, and I used to treat you like half a son, so I have to tell you this.”
“You can’t marry a girl whose parents have both passed away, no matter how rich she may be. You should know that parentless children tend to have psychological problems, right?”
“And if you two have children in the future, who will help you take care of them? You should also know that children will suffer without any grandparents, right?”
The car was traveling at 40 km/h, and Jordan immediately slammed the brakes, causing Sylvie, who wasn’t wearing her seatbelt and was leaning forward, to jerk forwards.
Sylvie shrieked in pain and complained resentfully, “Jordan, why did you step on the brakes!?!”
Jordan said to Sylvie coldly, “Get off.”
Sylvie was furious. “What did you say?”
Jordan repeated seriously, “I said, get off the car!”
Jordan can tolerate Sylvie badmouthing him, but he couldn’t tolerate her callous remarks about Victoria!
Victoria didn’t owe the Camdens anything, so why would she say that about a woman with a pitiful background!?!
Victoria’s father had been killed abroad, and the murderer had not been found. She wanted to have a complete family too.
Sylvie was enraged. “This is my family’s car. Who are you telling to get out!?! Are you out of your mind!”
Jordan said, “If you don’t get out of the car, I will get out of the car, and you two can go to the hospital on your own!”
With that, Jordan was about to unbuckle his seat belt.
Hailey had a hard time tricking Jordan into coming out with her. How could he let him go so easily?
Hence, Hailey immediately grabbed Jordan’s hand, stopping him from leaving. She said to Sylvie, who was in the backseat, “Mom, you go down. Jordan will take me there. It’ll be fine.”
Sylvie said with disgruntlement, “Fine, Jordan, you have to take care of Hailey. If anything happens to her, I’ll come after you!”
Sylvie got out of the car and slammed the door shut.
Jordan watched Sylvie leave and only started driving after she left.
Hailey complained, “You went overboard. No matter what, my mother has also been your mother-in-law for three years. When we were trying for a baby, she cooked for you and made your bed. She was also very good to you.”
“She merely said a few words about Victoria. Why did you make her get off?”
Jordan said coldly, “Except for the time when we were trying for a baby, and she acted like a mother-in-law, I don’t think she ever treated me like a son-in-law during other times.”
Hailey knew that Sylvie had been mistreating him for the past three years and did not mention it again.
As the car drove down the road, Hailey stretched and laughed.” It’s good that my mother is gone. It’s been a long time since we got to spend some time alone together.”
While driving with a solemn expression on his face, Jordan pointed to the car’s dash camera.
If Cayden knew that Jordan had taken Hailey to the hospital today, he would definitely check the dash camera footage to find out what the two of them had talked about in the car.
Hailey quickly rephrased her words. “Ah, we haven’t listened to the song ‘A World of Two’ for a long time.”
Hailey played the song.
Looking at the sudden change in Hailey’s expression, Jordan burst into laughter.
‘What a good actress!’
