Jordan and the rest didn’t stay in Texas long. After learning the truth, Jordan immediately planned to go to DC via private jet.
Jordan also called Victoria to report his situation to her.
Victoria’s voice was very soft, and she sounded like she had just woken up.
“I’m sorry, Victoria, I haven’t been able to call you the past few days or text you. I’m flying to DC now. There are so many troublesome things to do.”
“Let’s talk after you’re done handling those matters,” Victoria said gently.
“Yeah, okay, I’ll hang up now.”
After proposing to Victoria, Jordan should be enjoying the sweetest and happiest stage of his relationship.
However, these events occurred one after another.
Firstly, the paternity test results showed that Hailey’s twins weren’t fathered by him.
Now that he had finally found Leah’s father, Jordan realized that there was more to the story, which was surprisingly related to a mistake he had made four years before.
Jordan especially wanted to see Lauren Howard now to ask her about the situation and apologize to her.
After several hours of flying, Jordan and the others arrived in DC!
After the consecutive flights, Jordan and the others were exhausted.
Although he wanted to check into a hotel and get some sleep, Jordan nevertheless decided to meet Brad’s sister, Lauren, first!
“Where does your sister live?” Jordan asked.
“Come with me on your own. Don’t bring your subordinate,” Brad said.
Brad didn’t ask anyone to pick him up. Instead, he called for a cab, and Jordan got in it too.
Soon, the two of them arrived near the gate of a particular urban area where some old houses had very old stone brick and wooden door designs.
Jordan was surprised that Lauren was living here.
Pushing open the small red rustic wooden door, Jordan asked, “Aren’t the Howards very wealthy? Why is your sister living here?”
Of course, Jordan knew that property prices were high in DC, and houses here were not cheap either.
The average price should be above 600 thousand dollars for a home.
However, the Howards were incredibly wealthy and should be living in a multi-million-dollar home. An old house as such didn’t seem to match their family’s vibe.
Hearing this, Brad glared at Jordan resentfully and barked, “It’s all your fault! My sister has fallen out with my family, and she now lives in this house by herself.”
Jordan was baffled because he thought he had merely had something similar to a “one-night-stand” with Lauren, which wasn’t a big deal for open-minded or liberal women in modern-day society.
‘Did Lauren Howard develop depression after that incident? Why did she fall out with her family?’
Jordan knew that Brad didn’t want to mention this matter, so he decided to ask Lauren about it.
“I wonder what Lauren looks like. Is she pretty…”
Arriving at the house, Jordan became a little curious about her looks!
First of all, he reckoned that Lauren should be in her twenties, too, since Brad was only in his early twenties.
Secondly, Jordan guessed that Lauren should be quite pretty!
Reason being Brad was very good-looking himself and was almost considered pretty!
When Jordan saw Brad for the first time, he felt that he was really pretty!
He didn’t expect Brad to have a sister too, and he thought that it indeed didn’t let his family’s superior genes go to waste.
“Uh, is Lauren your biological sister from the same father and mother?”
Jordan asked Brad as he tagged along behind him.
He knew that major families like the Steeles and the Howards tend to have many children, but these children are usually half-siblings.
Brad said, “Yes, we share the same set of parents, and we also have two half-siblings from another mother.”
Jordan was relieved to know that Brad and Lauren belonged to the same mother because Lauren was probably quite pretty.
Of course, Jordan didn’t harbor any designs on Lauren because he loved Victoria very much now.
However, he liked pretty women and would rather have slept with a good-looking one.
When he arrived in the courtyard, a girl who resembled a maid walked over and greeted, “Mr. Brad, you’re here.”
“Where’s my sister?” Brad asked.
The girl replied, “Miss Lauren has gone to see Mr. Howard.”
Jordan smiled. ‘This family is pretty interesting.’
Brad was stunned for a moment. “She went to my father’s place? What is she there for?”
From Brad’s tone of voice, he could tell that Lauren rarely visited her father.
The girl replied, “I heard that Mr. Howard has arranged a blind date for her.”
Brad was enraged. “My sister never likes to go on any blind dates! She must have been tricked again!”
After saying that, Brad turned around and left.
“Hey, where are you going?” Jordan asked.
He was slightly disappointed about not getting to see Lauren.
Brad turned his head to look at Jordan. “To my father’s place. If you want to see my sister, you can come with me.”
However, Jordan didn’t agree immediately and instead hesitated a little.
Brad’s father, who was also the second generation heir of the Howards, was now in his prime and was the core strength of the family.
It wasn’t that easy to get married into the Howards.
Moreover, Jordan had done something wrong to the Howards…
“What’s wrong? Are you scared? Are you afraid that we’ll hang you up and beat you into a pulp?”
Brad laughed when he saw that Jordan didn’t dare to follow him.
In the past two days, Jordan had been saying that he would send Brad to Heaven and cause his manliness to vanish.
Brad was really pleased to see that Jordan was afraid.
Jordan sneered, “Brad, what I did with your sister, and what you did with Hailey are separate issues. Once I settle the matter between your sister and me, I can still beat you up into a pulp in front of the Howards!”
He was not afraid of the Howards!
When had the Steeles ever been afraid of anyone!?!
Brad didn’t expect Jordan to be so tyrannical even on his turf in DC, but he admired him for taking it like a man.
“I’m just afraid that the matter between you and my sister won’t be resolved that easily!”
Brad stopped talking and instead made a phone call to call for an Audi, a rather ordinary Audi A8. It was hard to tell that a big shot was riding in that car.
There were hidden forces and whales everywhere in DC.
Brad personally drove Jordan to a villa area called One Mansion.
The location was extremely superior and the villa was designed in a royal garden style, surrounded by green hills and streams. The price of the villa was incalculable!
The car stopped at the entrance of a classic and luxurious villa.
“Jordan, if you don’t dare to go in, it’s not too late to change your mind,” Brad said.
Jordan opened the car door and got out.. “There’s no place in this world that I don’t dare to go!”
