The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 268
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Jordan stayed at the Rose Garden Villa tonight. Every corner seemed to be filled with memories of Jordan and Hailey.
The scenes of their joyous bickering and loving interactions seemed to flash past Jordan’s mind like a movie.
Last year, he never thought he would end up in such a situation this year.
Jordan grabbed a bottle of white wine from the liquor cabinet, asked the helper to make some snacks to go with the wine. He then poured himself a drink in the living room.
Upset about his children, Jordan got drunk after a few glasses of wine.
When he woke up at nine o’clock the next day, Jordan found himself sleeping in the bedroom where he and Hailey had lived before.
Jordan immediately got up from the bed, slapped his body in disgust, and asked the helper to come over in a somewhat angry manner.
The helper was still the same one as before, and she had been tidying the room every day.
When Jordan returned yesterday, she was excited for a long time.
When she heard someone call her, she dashed upstairs gleefully and asked with a smile, “Mr. Jordan, what’s the matter?”
Jordan said, “Why did you help me to this room? Didn’t I say that I won’t be staying in this room again?”
The helper said, “Mr. Jordan, I didn’t help you over. You came here to sleep on your own.”
Jordan didn’t expect that he would return to this room in a drunken stupor.
This room, indeed, still contained too much of Jordan’s love for Hailey, but unfortunately, he could no longer look straight at this room.
When he entered this room, the images of Hailey betraying him with a strange man for the sake of the 150 million dollars would subconsciously surface in his mind.
At this moment, the helper suddenly said, “Mr. Jordan, Miss Elle Camden wants to see you. She has been waiting outside for three hours. Do you want to see her?”
Jordan had just returned to live in Orlando, but he didn’t expect Elle to come to him so soon.
To be honest, Jordan’s impression of Elle was not too bad. She was a little more naive and silly than Hailey.
Moreover, if it wasn’t for her, Jordan wouldn’t have divorced Hailey so smoothly. Hence, Jordan owed her a favor.
“Let her come in and ask her to wait for me in the living room while I wash my face before going downstairs.”
“Okay, Mr. Jordan!”
Jordan proceeded to wash up, only to find that the face wash and toothpaste were surprisingly still the same ones Hailey had bought for him previously. Hence, he decided to just casually rinse his face with water.
He then made his way downstairs slowly.
At this moment, a dignified, beautiful, and fashionably-dressed woman who was wearing a light-colored turtleneck sweater, paired with a dark-colored winter-season skirt, was sitting in the living room and sipping some tea.
Looking at the elegant and beautiful woman, Jordan was stunned.
When the pretty woman saw Jordan, she put down her teacup in surprise and hurriedly ran over to him. “Jordan!”
The pretty woman directly leaped into Jordan’s arms.
Jordan looked at the pretty woman in front of him and asked in some disbelief, “Elle?”
“Uh-huh.” Elle nodded happily.
Jordan got a great shock because Elle’s appearance had changed!
She had become beautiful!
“Did you… get plastic surgery?” Jordan asked straightforwardly.
Elle also graciously admitted, “Yes, I did some fine-tuning to my features. Do I look beautiful? How do I look compared to Hailey?”
It had only been a few months since they met, but they didn’t expect to see that Elle had already “changed”!
Elle had indeed become much prettier!
Previously, Elle only had a good figure and an ordinary face. Still, she had a good foundation, and hence, her features became much more pronounced after some mild cosmetic adjustments.
However, looking at Elle, who had undergone plastic surgery, Jordan suddenly remembered a dream he once had…
In that strange dream, Elle had had plastic surgery, and she looked about the same as she did now. She had become incredibly beautiful, and her figure was superb!
In that dream, Rachel and her husband had also reconciled.
The scarier thing was that Jordan and Hailey were holding a wedding in that dream!
The two of them were also together again!
Initially, Jordan thought that dream was absurd, but now, one of the scenes in the dream had come true.
‘Does this mean that Hailey and I will… also reconcile in the future? Impossible, Hailey has betrayed me thrice, and I won’t marry her again even if I have to die alone!’
Jordan secretly thought.
Seeing that Jordan was spacing out, Elle asked again, “Jordan, give me your comments. Am I pretty now?”
Jordan quickly praised, “Yes, in fact, you were quite beautiful before this. Why did you get plastic surgery?”
Elle was quite pretty to begin with and was just inferior compared to Hailey. She actually looked much better than ordinary women.
Besides, her incredible figure was already enough to make her the campus belle.
Elle said, “I went under the knife for you!”
“For me?” Jordan was puzzled.
Elle said, “Have you forgotten? I put on an act with you to make Hailey divorce you. You clearly said that you’d date me after the divorce but who knew you’d actually get together with Victoria Clarke.”
“Victoria is so much older than me, and yet, you chose her instead of me. That must have been because you don’t think I’m as pretty as she is. So, I made up my mind and decided that I have to get a facelift and become even more beautiful than Hailey and Victoria!”
“Jordan, now that I’ve succeeded, can I be your girlfriend?”
Jordan was extremely awkward because he did like pretty women.
However, Elle was already pretty enough before she got anything done to her face. The reason that Jordan chose not to date her actually had nothing to do with her beauty.
Jordan couldn’t help but caress Elle’s hair and said, “Elle, I’ve always treated you like a sister, and I have a girlfriend now. Victoria and I will be getting married soon.”
“Thank you for liking me. You’re actually much better than your cousin. Had I known earlier that Hailey would bring me so much pain and misery, I would have rather gotten married to you.”
Hearing these words from Jordan, Elle was so touched that she leaped into his arms and burst into tears. “Jordan…”
Jordan patted Elle and said with a smile, “You haven’t had breakfast yet, have you? Have your breakfast here before you go.”
Elle said, “Yes.”
In a short while, the helper made a hearty breakfast and served it to the two of them.
Elle ate for a while and said, “Jordan, actually, I came here today because of another matter.”
“Grandma asked me to beg you not to drive the Camdens to the edge. If we lose our clients, we’ll go bankrupt!”
Jordan sighed and said, “I’m sorry, Elle, there’s nothing I can do about this.”
“Hailey has let me down, so I must punish her.”
Elle was rather displeased. “Hailey is such a scourge. She dragged the entire family down with her because of a mistake she made!”
Jordan said, “Although your family will soon be in decline, you don’t have to worry too much. Just complete your studies and focus on your major. Once you graduate, I’ll help you with whatever you want to do.”
“Thank you, Jordan!” Elle exclaimed happily.
Elle happily ate a few bites and suddenly asked, “Jordan, why are you back here? Is it because you want to wait for him to show up?”
“Wait for him to show up? What do you mean? Who are you referring to?” Jordan asked in bewilderment.
Elle said, “Hailey’s lover, Leah’s father! You also think he will come back here again, don’t you?”
