The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 340
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
After Jordan expressed his attitude vehemently with determination, Lauren stood up too.
She looked at Martin and said, “Grandpa, shouldn’t you have discussed with me in advance before making arrangements for me to marry Jordan?”
“I didn’t say that I want to marry Jordan, let alone agree to share him with another woman.”
Lauren’s words were actually meant for Jordan.
She was trying to tell Jordan that she was unaware of these arrangements and that she wasn’t desperate to marry him.
As the most beautiful woman in DC, Lauren was quite prideful.
Martin said, “It’s up to your parents to decide your marriage. The decision has never been yours to make!”
“If everyone in our family is as capricious as you are, could the Howards be as glorious as they are today?!”
“Besides, Jordan is the man you chose. You’re the one who insisted on giving birth to his child.”
“We’ve tried to set you up with so many prospective partners over the years, but you never agreed to a single one. Do you think I’ll continue indulging you and letting you have your way!?!”
Martin’s words were undoubtedly full of dominance and mightiness.
When Jordan saw Martin’s attitude towards Lauren, he understood why she would run away from home four years ago.
The Howards had a conservative and backward mindset about the marriage of their children, completely denying them the chance to make their own decisions. It was as if they were born to bring about benefits for the family.
After lecturing Lauren, Martin looked at Jordan sternly and said, “Are you really not willing to marry my granddaughter? Lauren has been carefully nurtured by the family since she was a child and I dare say that no woman 30 years old and younger in the US is as outstanding as her!”
Jordan looked at Lauren, unable to bring himself to break her heart. He said softly, “Miss Howard, I’m sorry, my heart can only accommodate Victoria.”
“Screw you!” Brad slammed his hand against the table and exclaimed, “Jordan, the Howards have already made compromises out of consideration for your feelings and yet, you still don’t appreciate it. You simply have a death wish!”
Martin was completely enraged, too. “Jordan Steele! I’ll give you two ways out now!”
“One, marry my granddaughter.”
“Or two, hand your brother, Jamie, over!”
Brad called out to him, “By the way, hand over the culprit, Jamie to me!”
Jamie was the mastermind who set Jordan up with Lauren. Now, there was no longer any hatred between Jordan and Lauren. In fact, Lauren was rather fond of Jordan.
If the Howards wanted to take revenge, they ought to exact it on Jamie.
Not to mention that Jordan did not know where Jamie was. Even if he did, he wouldn’t hand his brother over to the Howards and leave him to their disposal.
Jordan exclaimed fearlessly, “I won’t make any of those two choices!”
Martin said with a vicious and menacing expression, “Since that’s the case, die here! Brad!”
Brad quickly ordered, “Kill him now!”
The few bodyguards standing around Jordan quickly whipped out their pistols from their pockets and aimed them at Jordan!
Jordan’s guess was right. He was indeed putting his life at risk by coming to Howard’s place tonight!
Luckily, he was long prepared!
“Don’t! Don’t kill him!”
Lauren suddenly stood up, ran to Jordan, and shielded him with her body.
“Grandpa, I beg you, please don’t kill him for Chloe’s sake. Don’t make my child become fatherless!”
However, Martin didn’t give in at all. “Brad, take your sister back to her room!”
Brad dragged Lauren up the stairs before locking her in the room on the second floor.
While slamming the door, Lauren cried and pleaded, “No, Grandpa, don’t kill him! Please don’t kill Jordan, please!”
Lauren’s crying made Jordan feel extremely touched!
He didn’t expect Lauren, who hadn’t spent much time with him, would shed so many tears for him.
‘None of the Howards, except Lauren, is a decent human being!’
Jordan was furious. He hated being held at gunpoint!
Jordan still didn’t give in to the threat.
He exclaimed at Martin, “Martin Howard, how dare you kill me!?! You want to make the Howards your enemy, huh?”
Martin humphed coldly and said domineeringly, “Why not!?! I’ve shown kindness and goodwill to the Steeles countless times in the last few decades, but you people didn’t know any better and treated us as pushovers!”
“You humiliated my granddaughter. How can I allow you to leave alive? I’m going to kill you today and declare war against Charleston Steele!”
“If he has the guts, he can take his people to DC and fight me to the death! I don’t believe he has the guts to do that!”
Martin barked furiously, “Jordan Steele, I’m asking you one last time, are you going to marry Lauren or not!?!”
Jordan knew the time had come. He raised his teacup and smashed it against the ground with all his might.
“I repeat for the last time. No one can force me against my wishes!”
Martin ordered with a sullen expression, “Do it!”
The gunmen aimed their guns at Jordan and were about to shoot!
However, at this moment…
*sounds of guns firing*
The machine gun outside the door was firing rapidly at the door and the ground.
Everyone was shocked because they thought that an army had arrived, but they turned around, only to realize that the UFO-shaped aircraft in the courtyard was hovering in midair and firing at them!
“Damn it! How did that happen!?! There’s no one in the UFO at all! Who is controlling it!?!”
Brad was astonished.
*sounds of guns firing*
After another round of firing, the gunfire inched closer to the crowd!
Chaos broke out and the women, such as Clarice and her mother, had long been frightened out of their wits and were hiding under the table.
All of a sudden, the UFO-shaped aircraft fired a few more items like mist bombs and so on, in the living room. It was Musk’s new invention and any creature that smelled it would become feeble and powerless, as if it had been poisoned.
At this moment, Jordan put on the mask that he had long prepared.
However, the other people in the room did not have such protective masks and were instead wearing ordinary masks that provided no resistance at all.
Taking advantage of the chaos, Jordan put to play his special-ops skills!
Jordan first knocked the three bodyguards who were the nearest to him onto the ground before snatching their guns away.
“You’re pointing a gun at me, huh? I hate being held at gunpoint the most!”
Jordan couldn’t help but kick the three of them.
At this moment, the other bodyguards in the house also quickly took action to nab Jordan.
However, at this moment, their vision was blocked, and they were poisoned by the gas, so their movements were slow and weak. They were no match for Jordan at all.
In three moves, he got rid of all the people in the house!
At this moment, Jordan closed the door and instructed Tim to control the UFO-shaped aircraft from outside, for fear that there would be more reinforcements sent by the Howards.
The entire living room was filled with smoke. The Howards had all gone limp and powerless as they fell to the ground or slumped down onto the chair.
At this moment, Jordan held onto a gun and walked straight to Martin, who was seated inside.
He pointed the gun at Martin and questioned, “You wanted to kill me?”
