The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 295
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Brad spoke with an unquestionable firmness and dominance in his tone, as if he were Lauren’s parent.
Before Jordan replied, Lauren was the first to be awkward. “Brad, what nonsense are you babbling? Who said that I… like him?”
Lauren was very concerned about what people said about her relationship with the “stranger.”
Although she already shared a child with Jordan, they weren’t even considered friends because they hadn’t spent much time with each other.
Brad looked at Lauren and said, “Lauren, stop covering up. If you don’t like him, why did you stay in that lousy café in New York City for such a long time? You even named it Café Nostalgia, which shows how much you miss him.”
“There were so many times that I wanted to remove the signboard and get it redone!”
Lauren blushed shyly and said, “Nostalgia is a generic word. Anyway, I’m not the one who came up with the name.”
However, Brad didn’t show his sister the slightest mercy. “Even if you didn’t come up with it, you’d always have the right to change the signboard, right? The cafe was already handed over to you anyway.”
Jordan had already guessed that Jamie was probably the one who came up with the cafe’s name and gave it to Lauren.
However, since Lauren kept using that name, it shows that she at least didn’t hate him.
Or rather, she didn’t mind being in an ambiguous relationship with Jordan.
Lauren didn’t know how to explain because she was terrified of making things worse the further she explained. “Don’t set me up with Jordan nonsensically. He has a girlfriend, and she’s a very outstanding career woman.”
Brad laughed and said, “You mean Victoria Clarke? She’s no longer an issue. Just rest assured and marry Jordan.”
Jordan looked at Brad with a frown and asked, “What do you mean by that? Did you do something to Victoria?”
Jordan sensed that something was amiss, and he knew that Brad had always been brazen and arrogant.
He even had the guts to sleep with Hailey. Victoria was just an orphan. It was possible that Brad might kill her even if it was for the sake of reaching his agenda.
Brad was just waiting for Jordan to say that. “Jordan, surely you don’t know this yet, right? Your fiancée… Oh, no, it should be your ex-girlfriend. Your ex-girlfriend Victoria is going to marry Russell in Houston soon. Hahaha!”
Jordan slapped Brad on his face!
“Bastard, who are you to insult my fiancée?”
Jordan flew into a rage. Just now, Jordan had been saving Brad from embarrassment on Lauren’s account.
However, Brad had now slandered Jordan’s fiancée by saying that Victoria married Russell. How could Jordan possibly tolerate it?
“How dare you hit me? Even my grandfather has never slapped me before!”
They were at the Howards’ compound. Today, Brad actually had the opportunity to shoot Jordan. How could he tolerate Jordan slapping him at will?
Brad was a martial arts practitioner too. He immediately got into a fight with Jordan.
Brad hit Jordan with all his might, and three punches left Jordan with no means to retaliate.
It could be seen that Brad’s current strength should be slightly better than that of Chris. It was no wonder that he wasn’t willing to let Chris be his brother-in-law.
However, it was also straightforward for Jordan to deal with Brad.
He did a feint and pretended to kick him in the stomach, after which he kicked Brad’s previously injured right leg with a flying kick!
Brad immediately shrieked in pain. Previously, Pablo stabbed his thigh twice, and his injury had yet to fully recover.
With this kick, Brad’s defense was already flawed. Jordan once again slapped Brad twice!
Seeing that her younger brother had been beaten up, she walked over and begged Jordan for mercy.
JewJordan didn’t continue to hit him and said to Brad, “Kid, what was between us isn’t over. Your life is still with me now. How dare you slander my fiancée?”
Brad covered his face in exasperation. He had never been bullied in such a matter since he was a child!
“Jordan, you’re despicable and shameless. You hit me where I’m injured. If you have what it takes, I’ll abuse you until you call me Daddy!”
The way Brad called Jordan Daddy was rather loud, and he couldn’t help but agree, “Hey, my good son.”
However, Jordan became embarrassed as he turned around to look at Lauren.
Since Brad and Lauren were siblings, that makes him Lauren’s father too…
Brad was just about to say something, but Lauren hollered, “Okay, Brad, you’re at fault for this in the first place. Why are you smearing Victoria for no reason? She didn’t provoke you either.”
As a woman, Lauren also admired Victoria, an independent career woman.
Brad said aggrievedly, “Who slandered her!?! Victoria was about to get married to Russell, who doesn’t know about this in Houston!”
“Russell has even sent the wedding invitation to the capital!”
“Jordan Steele, trust you to claim that Victoria is your fiancée. She’s getting married to someone else, and you don’t even know?”
Lauren understood Brad well and knew that he wasn’t lying. She began to tense up too, and she asked, “Jordan, have you not been in contact with your girlfriend recently?”
In the past few days, Jordan spent almost all his time with Chloe and Lauren except for sleeping.
Lauren almost never saw Jordan calling or texting his girlfriend.
Jordan began to look embarrassed.
Since he called Victoria and she hung up angrily, the two of them never spoke to each other over the phone again.
He sent a text to Victoria, but she didn’t reply.
Jordan and Victoria were having a cold war.
However, Jordan did not believe that Victoria decided to marry Russell because this reason alone was too far-fetched.
“Impossible, it is impossible that Victoria would leave me. She is the woman who loves me the most in this world!”
Jordan picked up his phone and immediately called Victoria.
“Sorry, the number you have dialed is currently unavailable.”
The call couldn’t get through!
Jordan tried to make a video call to Victoria.
She didn’t pick up.
‘How could this happen!’
Jordan immediately felt that it was rather strange. He took out a phone card from his wallet, his number for work. In the last seven days, he hadn’t used it at all.
Reason being he would get a lot of incoming calls on his work number, which was very annoying.
Jordan only wanted to spend time with his daughter last week. He didn’t want to deal with work at all.
After inserting the phone card, Jordan first called Victoria’s secretary, Ashley Rose.
“Mr… Mr. Steele,” Ashley answered, sounding somewhat nervous.
Jordan said, “Ashley, I can’t reach Victoria on her phone. Did she go back to the office?”
Ashley said, “Mr… Mr. Steele, Miss Clarke has… resigned.”
“What did you say?” Jordan was astounded.
Ding-dong! Ding-dong! Ding-dong!
Due to the delay in inserting the phonecard, he finally received the notifications that he was supposed to receive just now.
Jordan opened the text messages to see that they had been sent by the senior executives of J Corporation and Perry Express.
“Miss Clarke is resigning as president of Perry Express!”
