The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 320
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
When he left DC previously, Jordan made Salvatore send Brad to the police station in the UFO-shaped aircraft, using the auto-navigation.
He didn’t expect that Brad could leave unscathed.
That was proof of the Howards’ extraordinary power.
In the private room of the restaurant, Brad explained with a smile, “Oh, Chloe’s father is Jordan Steele, the president of J Corporation.”
“That bastard cheated my sister out of her feelings and even knocked her up. Miss Clarke, I heard you used to be in a relationship with him, right?”
Victoria felt extremely embarrassed because she didn’t expect Brad to ask her such a question in front of Russell!
Even Cayden wouldn’t dare to be so rude!
It seemed that the Howards were far more powerful than the Huxleys, so much that they didn’t take Russell seriously at all.
At this moment, Lauren chastised, “Brad, don’t spout nonsense!”
She then took the initiative to apologize to Victoria. “Sorry, Miss Clarke, he’s just too blunt and straightforward. He doesn’t mean any harm.”
Victoria smiled. The few of them sat down and began ordering some food.
After ordering, Russell smiled and said, “Mr. Howard, Miss Howard, you’re doing me a great favor by coming all the way to Houston two days in advance to attend my wedding. Where would you like to visit the next two days? I’ll make the arrangements!”
Brad glanced out the window. The special feature of the rooftop restaurant was the beautiful view of the city’s skyline that it offered.
The view of the river and scenery seemed even more romantic under the falling raindrops.
Brad said, “I’m afraid the rain won’t stop for a day or two. I think we’d better stay in the hotel.”
Russell then asked, “How is Mr. Howard Sr.’s health lately?”
Brad nodded and said, “My grandfather is in the pink of health. He also asked me to inform you he will attend the wedding on time on the 15th of March if nothing goes wrong.”
Russell was overjoyed. The Howards had not only sent two third-generation descendants to Houston in advance, even their grandfather was surprisingly also going to attend his wedding, making Russell feel extremely flattered.
Reason being, the Howards had a high status and there was no need for them to suck up to Russell at all.
“Let me toast to you, Mr. Howard and Miss Howard! Thank you for coming to Houston!”
Russell lifted his glass and so did Victoria. The four of them then began drinking.
Although it was noon, the few of them drank to their hearts’ content. Since the Howards were noble and highly mighty, Russell and Victoria had to host them well.
Brad seemed to be planning to go back to the hotel to get a good sleep after drinking. Hence, he chugged his drinks quickly.
Among the four people, Lauren was the only one who drank only a sip. After all, she had brought Chloe over.
Soon, after three rounds of wine, Brad took Chloe to the hall outside the private room to enjoy the view while Russell went to the restroom.
Victoria and Lauren were left alone in the private room.
The two gorgeous women, who were love rivals, were facing each other silently for a long time.
Afterwards, Lauren suddenly asked, “Miss Clarke, why did you break up with Jordan?”
“A few days ago, Jordan had been spending time with me and he’d mentioned your name every single day. He said that you’re beautiful, that you two are very much in love with each other, and that you’re about to get married soon.”
Jordan listened carefully, surprised to hear Lauren helping him with that.
Victoria said, “We aren’t suitable for each other. He… he’s really nice, but he’s too young for me. I prefer mature men.”
After saying that, Victoria asked Lauren, “Can you tell me the story of you and Jordan? How did you… get pregnant with his child?”
Although Victoria was no longer Jordan’s girlfriend, she was still deeply in love with Jordan and very much wanted to know about Jordan’s past.
Lauren said, “He forced himself onto me four years ago.”
“That’s impossible! Jordan is not that kind of person!”
Victoria immediately stood up for Jordan, which made him feel very much at ease.
Lauren explained, “It was his brother who planned it.”
Victoria suddenly humphed coldly and said with a ruthless look on her face, “Hmph, the Steeles are really lawless!”
Victoria then asked, “Don’t you blame Jordan for it?”
Lauren shook her head and said, “Actually, I was the one who held Jordan’s hand first back in that little black room four years ago. If we hadn’t done the deed, we wouldn’t have been able to get out.”
“All these years, I have been observing him. Although he was clearly the scion of the Steele family, he became the live-in husband of Hailey Camden and worked hard without complaint. He was very caring and meticulous towards Hailey too.”
“Later on, he got together with you and he also took good care of you. He even helped you fulfill your dream of becoming the president of a listed company.”
“Frankly, I fancy Jordan, and I hope I can have a boyfriend like him too.”
Hearing Lauren’s words, Jordan froze for a moment because he was surprised to hear that Lauren had been secretly observing him all these years.
Moreover, she actually said that she fancied Jordan…
“Lauren fancies me… How can she be in love with someone who has hurt her?”
Jordan was also a little surprised.
Victoria continued to ask, “What about your family?”
Lauren said, “My grandfather has always wanted to befriend the Steeles, and he likes Jordan very much too.”
Victoria nodded. Lauren had expressed her attitude very clearly with those words.
Since Victoria and Jordan had broken up, Lauren would take possession of Jordan!
Victoria lifted her glass of white wine and said to Lauren, “Miss Howard, you and Jordan are a perfect match in terms of age, appearance, and family background. Besides, you two share a child and you truly belong together.”
“Let me toast to you. I wish you and Jordan… conjugal bliss!”
After saying that, Victoria chugged the full glass of wine!
Jordan could tell that Victoria was sad!
“Victoria, what are you talking about? I’m not going to marry Lauren. You’re the one I love!”
Jordan shouted, but unfortunately, Victoria couldn’t hear him at all.
Victoria drank the most during this meal and even though she had a good liquor level, she actually threw up after leaving the hotel!
“Victoria, how are you? Why did you drink so much wine?”
Russell quickly patted Victoria on her back before handing her a bottle of water and then helping her into the car.
The black Mercedes-Benz sedan drove out of the parking lot and shuttled through the heavy rain on the expressway.
In the car, a romantic love song was playing.
Victoria, who was in the back seat, was crying like a child.
Jordan felt really upset when he heard Victoria crying.
Jordan should be the one feeling devastated when he attends Victoria’s wedding.
He didn’t expect Victoria to be sad because of his newfound “happiness”.
Today, Lauren’s appearance had dealt Victoria a huge blow!
Lauren and Jordan were so compatible with each other that Victoria felt a sense of inferiority for the first time in her life.
While sobbing, Victoria even slapped Russell.
“I love Jordan! I’m the woman he should be spending the rest of my life with! I don’t want to see another woman being with him!”
“Why did you tell me those things? Why did you tell me about the murderer of my father? Why!?! Why!?! Why!?!”
