The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 280
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Jordan heaved a long sigh of relief as he was glad that she wasn’t Lauren.
He didn’t want anything to do with a woman like her who was obviously a spoiled brat.
Jordan apologized to Clarice, “I’m sorry, I thought you were his sister.”
Hearing Brad’s “chauffeur” say that Clarice became even more jealous.
All along, people in the upper-class circle of DC would only ever pay attention to Lauren and never Clarice.
Now, even someone she thought was just a lowly chauffeur actually took a double-take at her only because he mistook her for Lauren.
How could she tolerate that!?!
Clarice was furious, but she couldn’t lose her temper either.
Hence, she gibed smilingly, “Hah, it’s true that I’m not as pretty as Lauren, but so what if Lauren is pretty? What has she ever done for our family?”
“Four years ago, we arranged a marriage alliance for her, but she refused to agree and even ran away. What happened in the end?”
“She was pregnant when she returned, and she didn’t even know who the baby’s father was. Well, that’s fine, everyone makes mistakes when they’re young, and she could have just gotten an abortion.”
“However, she went against Daddy’s wishes and insisted on giving birth to that illegitimate child!”
“Not only did she keep the baby, but she also insisted that she would never get married again in this lifetime and decided to spend the rest of her life with just that child. She refuses to go on a blind date with anyone or even see anyone.”
“She now has a 3-year-old daughter, and which person from a similar family background as us would be willing to marry her? Chris is the only one who’s so devoted to her.”
“But today, she refuses to meet Chris now that he’s here to see you. She won’t even show him basic courtesy. How rude of her!”
Clarice began to list out all of Lauren’s sins.
Jordan was once again shocked to hear Clarice’s words.
‘Lauren Howard is pregnant? Could it be my child?’
Jordan did not know if the “illegitimate child” resulted from the intimate encounter he had with Lauren back then.
“Three years old… I have a three-year-old daughter?”
Jordan was rather riled up. He initially only planned to apologize to Lauren after meeting her today.
He didn’t expect to learn that he had a three-year-old daughter!
At this moment, Brad’s parents seemed to be extremely sullen.
Brad’s mother exclaimed, “Chris, don’t worry, I’ll go upstairs now and drag her down if I must!”
However, Brad suddenly stopped his mother. Hey, Mom, don’t end up arguing with Lauren later. Let the chauffeur go.”
Everyone looked at Jordan.
Jordan was a little surprised too.
When Chris looked at Jordan, there was apparent animosity and hostility in his eyes.
Reason being Jordan had just said to Clarice that he had been staring at her only because he thought she was Lauren.
As Lauren’s future “fiancé”, he would not allow any other man to dare to covet the woman he adored so much.
Clarice laughed and asked, “Him? He can bring Lauren down? Cut it out. Even if you try to convince her yourself, you might not be able to get your sister to come downstairs.”
Brad laughed and said, “That’s why I said that I’ll get my chauffeur to carry her downstairs forcefully if she refuses. Mom can’t pull her down either.”
All the Howards knew Lauren’s temper well and were aware that they wouldn’t be able to persuade Lauren to come downstairs no matter what they said. In the end, they would still have to resort to forceful means to drag her downstairs.
Hence, Brad’s mother did not object anymore and instead said, “Okay, let this young chap go.”
‘Lauren Howard… I’m finally going to meet you.’
Jordan was rather glad because he had long wanted to see Lauren in the flesh.
On the way back to DC from Texas, Jordan had wanted to look at Lauren’s photos, but unfortunately, Brad refused to show them to her.
Now, he would personally take a look at Lauren and the three-year-old girl who could possibly be his daughter.
However, just as Jordan was about to start moving, Chris, seated in a military stance, suddenly got up and blocked Jordan!
Chris was nearly 1.9 meters tall, and there was a scar on his face too. From the look in his eyes, Jordan could tell that he wasn’t a kind soul!
“What’s the matter?” Jordan asked.
Although Jordan was shorter than Chris and was assuming the identity of a chauffeur now, his aura wasn’t any less domineering than Chris at the moment.
Chris said coldly, “If Miss Lauren refuses to come downstairs on her own, you’re not allowed to drag her down by force, let alone carry her. If you dare to lay a hand on her, I’ll make sure you won’t be able to hold the steering wheel again in the future.”
Clarice, who was seated at the side, laughed and said, “Hey, Chris, aren’t you making it difficult for Brad’s chauffeur?”
“He definitely can’t persuade Lauren. Since he can’t drag her, how can he possibly convince her to come downstairs?”
Chris said coldly, “That’s his business. If he can’t even get that done, he doesn’t deserve to be a chauffeur.”
Jordan could tell that Chris was trying to use this matter to dismiss Jordan as a chauffeur.
Reason being he could tell that Jordan was interested in Lauren, so Chris couldn’t keep him around the Howards.
Jordan stared at Chris for a long time before agreeing.
There was also a murderous aura in his gaze!
However, he didn’t start a conflict with Chris.
Having been a live-in son-in-law of the Camdens for three years, he had long since suffered lots of humiliation, insults, and taunts, which long trained his patience. He could now hold himself back from losing his temper.
Now, he didn’t need to argue with Chris because his purpose was to see Lauren and her daughter.
Jordan slowly walked up the stairs while Brad smiled and reminded, “She’s in the first room on the left of the second floor.”
Looking at Jordan’s back, Brad’s heart was filled with emotions, and he exclaimed, “Lauren, I know you’re going to be upset, but I’ve brought him here!”
Jordan slowly walked up to the second floor, where the style of the villa here was very different from the style of his own villa in Orlando and New York City.
The villa did not have luxurious decor, but it was exquisite and had a strong heritage.
Arriving on the second floor, he saw that the door on the far left was closed. Hence, Jordan knocked on the red wooden door.
“Miss Lauren, are you inside?”
A soft voice soon came from inside, “Tell my mother that I won’t see him.”
When Jordan heard the soft and feeble voice, he suddenly got deja vu as he felt that he seemed to have heard it before somewhere.
“Could it be that we have met before?”
However, on second thought, he realized, ‘Duh, of course, we have met before, and I’ve heard her voice several times before that night…’
Jordan stopped letting his imagination run wild and instead opened the red wooden door to enter.
As soon as he opened the door, he saw a familiar scene.
A gorgeous woman whose long hair was draped across her shoulder and who was as pretty as Hailey was now teasing a three-year-old girl.
The two of them were grinning brightly like beautiful angels and fairies.
Jordan and Lauren chorused in unison as they looked at each other, completely dumbfounded!
