The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 318

“Damn it Russell! How dare you kiss Victoria? I’m going to smash all your teeth!”
Jordan, who was on the top floor of the Intercontinental Hotel, had gotten so furious that he sprung up immediately.
Fortunately, he had installed a listening device. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have known that something like that had happened at a certain time!
However, on second thought, Jordan realized that even though Russell and Victoria had already agreed to get married and even settled on a date, Russell still had to ask for permission to kiss Victoria.
That just goes to show that Russell had never kissed Victoria before.
Jordan felt much better when he thought about it.
Jordan’s heart was racing and while he looked forward to hearing Victoria’s answer, he was afraid of hearing it too!
Jordan knew how to read micro-expressions, through which he could tell what others were thinking.
However, Jordan could now only hear their voices, and he couldn’t see Victoria’s expression at all. Hence, he was really anxious!
Victoria said slowly, “I’m sorry, Russell, I… I can’t do it.”
Jordan’s tensed up nerves suddenly relaxed.
Indeed, Victoria was still the same Victoria that he knew, who wouldn’t behave intimately with other men easily.
Russell was gentlemanly enough not to force Victoria, so he heaved a long sigh of relief.
“I know you don’t love me anymore and you’re marrying me only because you want to force Jordan to leave you.”
Hearing this, Jordan was completely stunned.
“Victoria is getting married to Russell to force me to leave her? But… why? Why did he do that?”
The listening device was indeed very useful, for it allowed him to find out the true thoughts of Victoria and Russell so soon!
Victoria did not like Russell at all and didn’t actually want to marry him.
She married Russell only for the sake of breaking up with Jordan!
Breaking up with Jordan was her true agenda!
“What exactly did I do that was so heinous that she insisted on breaking up with me?”
Jordan couldn’t figure it out at all.
Russell’s voice came out of the earphones again and said, “But Victoria, since you chose to marry me, it’d be a great insult and torment to me if you refuse to be mine. This is very unfair to me.”
Russell pretended to be aggrieved.
Jordan had experienced the same thing before.
He had been married to Hailey for three years, and Hailey had never let him get intimate with her. Life had been frustrating and quite the torment for him.
However, Jordan couldn’t sympathize with Russell at the moment.
To his surprise, Victoria said slowly, “Russell, I’m very grateful to you for having helped me so much. After our wedding and I really become your wife, I… won’t turn you down again.”
Russell was overjoyed and surprised. “Really? Great, I’ll wait another three days. Once our wedding is over, I’ll be able to have you again!”
Victoria bit her lips and stayed silent.
“Victoria, I won’t disturb your rest, then. I’ll take my leave now.”
Russell got up and left.
At this moment, Jordan was filled with agony after hearing Victoria’s answer.
Although Victoria had rejected Russell, she would stop rejecting him once they got married.
“No, I can’t let you marry him. I definitely won’t let you get married!”
Jordan clenched his fist and secretly made a vow.
However, the first task now is to find out why Victoria broke up with him.
Jordan thought about it all night, but he still couldn’t figure anything out.
He sat on the couch in the presidential suite and fell asleep at some point.
He woke up at 8 o’clock the next morning, got up and walked barefoot to the window, only to see it had started drizzling.
Jordan looked at the raindrops outside the window and spaced out as he was still thinking about Victoria.
“I wonder if Russell will wear that blazer today.”
The listening device was placed in the pocket of Russell’s blazer so if he were to wear something else today, he probably wouldn’t be able to continue listening to their conversation.
While thinking about it, Jordan returned to his computer to check on Russell’s location.
Jordan discovered that the red dot was still moving, which meant that Russell was still moving, which also meant that he was wearing the same blazer that he did yesterday!
“Very well. He should have gone to see Victoria again. Russell Miller, say more to Victoria so that I can learn the truth of the matter sooner!”
At about half-past eight, Russell arrived at the Aegean Sea Hills villa.
As soon as he entered, Russell cursed, “It turns out that bastard Jordan Steele smashed all the windows of my villa yesterday!”
“Victoria, you didn’t catch a cold when you were sleeping last night, did you? Had I known earlier, I should have brought you to Houston Bay.”
Victoria shook her head and said, “No, there is a room on the first floor whose windows are still intact. I slept there.”
“By the way, did you come early in the morning for something?”
Russell said, “Oh, I bought you some pudding from the old store near your home. It’s your favorite food when you were a child. Try it and tell me if it tastes the same as before.”
Victoria used to love having that signature pudding for breakfast when she was a child and she hadn’t eaten it for a long time.
Victoria tasted it and said, “It still tastes the same.”
Russell smiled and said, “Apart from bringing you breakfast, there is another reason I’m here. I mentioned to you that the Howards have helped me a lot in the past few years and they’re also a powerful family in the country.”
“I’ve sent an invitation to the Howards, and I just received a call from them. Lauren and Brad Howard are here in Houston today and they want to invite us to a meal.”
Jordan and Victoria both froze in shock when they heard Lauren’s name.
Jordan had told Victoria that the mother of his three-year-old daughter, whom he had just reunited with, was Lauren Howard!
“What’s wrong? Victoria, do you know them?” Russell could tell that Victoria was surprised.
Victoria shook her head and said, “I don’t know them, but I heard Jordan mention before that Lauren Howard is the mother of his three-year-old daughter. Some time ago, Jordan has also been accompanying Lauren and his daughter.”
Russell came to a sudden realization and said, “I was wondering why these two young ones have come to Houston two days in advance. He even specifically said that he wants to invite me and you two to a meal.”
“The Howards are really powerful, so I thought that they’d just send a third-generation descendant of theirs to patronize me, but I never thought they would arrive in advance.”
“Victoria, it seems that their intention is to treat you to a meal and not me. It’s you they’ve come for. So, are you willing to meet Lauren?”
Victoria suddenly recalled that when Jordan apologized to her previously, he did say, “Lauren may be very outstanding but…”
Victoria immediately agreed, “Yes, I’ll go meet her!”
Victoria was filled with jealousy and she wanted to see with her own eyes just how outstanding Lauren was!
