The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 321
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
In the luxurious presidential suite on the top floor of the Intercontinental Hotel in Houston, Jordan, who had been eavesdropping with his AKG headphones, could not hear the loud sounds of a downpour outside the window.
However, at this moment, he felt like there was a thunderstorm roaring in his heart!
At this moment, Jordan finally knew the truth of this matter!
It turned out that Victoria decided to break up with Jordan after finding out who her father’s murderer was!
“Who killed Victoria’s father?”
At this moment, in the Mercedes Benz on the expressway.
Russell let Victoria hit him and took the initiative to take the blame. “You’re right, Victoria, it’s all my fault. I shouldn’t have told you about these, and I shouldn’t have disrupted your stable life.”
“Since you love Jordan so much, you can pretend that you didn’t hear what I said and that you never came to Houston!”
“Your father is my best friend. I’ll avenge him on my own. Stay out of this and take it that nothing has happened before. Go look for Jordan!”
Russell sounded loyal and righteous, but Jordan knew he must have deliberately said that only because he knew Victoria’s character well.
Jordan understood Victoria well enough and knew that she wasn’t the type of person who would choose to avoid reality for a peaceful life, and put aside the matter of her father’s murder.
‘All this shrewd old man, Russell, does is coax and deceive women!’
Indeed, Victoria stopped hitting Russell and cried, “No, I won’t go back to Jordan. It’s over between us. I’ll take revenge on my father myself. I’ll kill that bastard on my own, even if it might cost my life!”
Hearing this, Jordan was astonished.
Victoria was actually ready to die with that murderer!
“Silly honey, why do you want to risk your own life? The Steeles have forces all over the world. Why don’t you just tell me who it is and I’ll help you deal with him?”
“Victoria must be worried about implicating me. Maybe that person has an impressive status, maybe he’s very difficult to deal with…”
Jordan continued to listen for a while and discovered that Victoria’s crying had gradually ceased and she stopped speaking too.
At this moment, Jordan had already removed his earphones. He was now aware of the reason that Victoria left him.
Now, he just needed to find out who the murderer is!
Jordan called the two of them over and exclaimed, “Bring Russell here to me immediately!”
While the two went to nab Russell, Jordan called Emily.
“What’s the matter, Jordan?”
“Did your sister ever mention to you who the murderer of your father was?”
“No, my sister and Uncle Russell have been investigating for years, but they haven’t found out who the murderer is. Why are you suddenly asking about this?”
Jordan didn’t answer and instead continued to ask, “In that case, do you know the specific time and specific location where your father was murdered?”
After some thought, Emily answered, “My father passed away 11 years ago in France, but I can’t remember the specific place and time. Why are you asking? Did my sister tell you something?”
Jordan realized that both Victoria and Russell had not told Emily about the fact that they had found out who the murderer was.
Reason being Victoria always wanted Emily to grow up happily and lead a simple life without any troubles.
Emily had long treated Jordan as his brother-in-law and family member. Jordan didn’t want Victoria’s efforts to go down the drain either.
Hence, Jordan said, “Oh, no, I just suddenly recalled it and decided to ask you about it. Okay, there’s nothing else. I’m hanging up now.”
“Wait a minute.”
Emily suddenly called Jordan and exclaimed in bewilderment, “That doesn’t seem right. Did you specifically call to ask about this matter because you want to go to France to find the person who murdered my father!?”
“It must be so! Now that Victoria’s getting married, you must be thinking of finding the real murderer of my father, and then take revenge for us so that you can use that in exchange for Victoria’s hand in marriage, right?”
Jordan didn’t know what to say for a while. He didn’t expect Emily to have imagined such a plot.
Before Jordan replied, Vicky frantically said, “I want to go too, I want to go too! I’ve always wanted to know more about my father, but Victoria has never told me much. I’m his daughter too and I also have the right to do something for him, so why has she been keeping it from me?”
“Jordan, how about I accompany you to France?”
Of course, Jordan could not agree. “I’m not thinking of going to France. Besides, the rain is too heavy for the plane to take off and I can’t go to France either. You’re thinking too much.”
Emily humphed coldly and said, “Jordan, I’m a flight attendant and I go on flights every day. The rain doesn’t affect flights, okay? Besides, you have a private jet!”
Jordan still did not agree. “I’m really not going to France. I’m hanging up now.”
Despite saying that he wasn’t going to France, Jordan had already prepared his luggage and made a call to arrange for some people to receive him in France.
Soon, Pablo returned and reported, “I’m sorry, Mr. Jordan, we’re too incompetent. Russell and Miss Victoria have returned to Houston Bay 1, and we can’t get in at all!”
“It must be Russell’s doing again. Non-owners are prohibited from entering, huh?” Jordan humphed coldly and continued, “I’m going to buy a house there and see if they’ll let me in!”
Seemingly put in a tough spot, Pablo said, “I’ve already asked. They’re not going to sell it.”
“Houston Bay 1 is the best residential estate in the city, and I heard that many of the top real estate magnates in the country have decided to move to Houston Bay 1.”
“The eligibility criteria for the purchase of a house there is that you have to be the president of a listed company.”
“But they declined even after we mentioned your name!”
Needless to say, this must have been arranged long ago by Russell too, all for the sake of preventing Jordan from getting close to him.
As the place where the country’s top tycoons gathered, the security measures must also be the tightest in Houston Bay 1.
If Russell refuses to come out, Jordan probably wouldn’t be able to nab him at all. Even if he comes out, he’d definitely bring lots of bodyguards with him, given how conscientious he was.
Even if he was caught, Russell may not tell Jordan who murdered Victoria’s father.
“Pablo, keep an eye on things in Houston.I’ll have Salvatore accompany me on a trip to France.”
“France? Miss Victoria is getting married in a couple of days, don’t be late for her wedding.”
“Yes, I know what to do.”
A trip to France would take at least ten hours, and it would take a day of traveling for a round trip.
Jordan must find out the truth of the matter within a day!”
So, Jordan rushed to the airport without stopping and walked into his private jet with an umbrella.
Salvatore and others trailed behind.
Just as Salvatore was holding the umbrella and walking up the gangway, suddenly, a long-legged beauty clad in a flight attendant uniform walked over.
“Sir, Sir, are you going to France? Do you need a flight attendant to serve you? I’m heading to France too.. Give me a lift and I can serve you for free!”
