The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 356
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Chris repeatedly tried to test Jordan’s patience, so Jordan had long wanted to beat him up into a pulp.
Chris previously insulted Jordan and called him poor, but Jordan couldn’t retort because he was indeed really penniless now. If he were to get physical, it would be akin to admitting that he was an incompetent loser and that he was jealous of Chris, who was wealthy.
However, it was a personality issue for Chris to insult Jordan by accusing him of having an affair with Lisa.
However, Jordan’s punch did not land on Chris.
Chris was undoubtedly a martial arts practitioner. He hurriedly raised his arm to resist and got into an attacking stance. He yelled, “Do you want to fight? Bring it on! Since the last time I fought you, I’ve been wanting to fight you every single day!”
Chris was defeated by Jordan the last time, and after that, he had been training hard every day in a bid to regain his pride.
However, how could Lauren watch Chris and Jordan fight?
Lauren interjected, “Can you guys not fight in front of Chloe?”
Although Jordan really wanted to teach Chris a lesson, he decided to tolerate it for Chloe’s sake because he didn’t want Chloe to think that her father was a violent man.
Chloe walked over and asked Jordan, “Dad, do you not have a place to live in anymore since you’ve given the key to your house to that lady?”
Children are immature and tend to say whatever comes to mind, so her words made Chris laugh out loud.
“Hahaha, Chloe, you’re so right. Jordan Steele doesn’t even have a place to live now, hahaha.”
Jordan was now penniless and had returned the key to the house he was staying in, so he would probably have to sleep on the street tonight.
Chloe continued to raise her head and exclaimed, “Awesome! In that case, Daddy, sleep with me and Mommy! The three of us will sleep together!”
Chris, who was laughing and smiling, instantly turned pale and no longer felt that Chloe’s words were pleasing to his ears.
With a strong desire to spite Chris, Jordan stroked Chloe’s head and said, “Okay, baby, I’ll sleep next to you and Mommy.”
“I’ll cripple you if you f***ing dare to sleep next to Lauren!” Chris flew into a rage immediately.
Jordan retorted unceremoniously, “I’m going to sleep next to my daughter. It has nothing to do with you!”
With an awkward expression, Lauren looked at Jordan and said, “Don’t say that. You might cause a misunderstanding easily. Chris and I are about to get married soon, so it’s really not appropriate for you to stay here.”
“If you don’t have a place to stay, I can arrange a place for you, or book a hotel room for you.”
Last night, Jordan said that Lauren had resorted to unscrupulous means to marry him, which left Lauren with no choice but to be a little heartless towards him now.
She did not want to let Jordan stay in her house again, lest he mistakenly think that she would want to take the opportunity to get close to him or something.
Besides, Lauren knew that given Chris’s temper and character, he would never allow a stranger to live in his fiancée’s house because of how prideful he was.
Seeing that Lauren also did not agree to let Jordan stay here, Chris guffawed and gibed, “Hear that, pauper!?! If you don’t have enough money to stay in a hotel, I can give you some! Forget about staying in my fiancée’s house!”
Jordan didn’t want to get into an argument with Chris in Chloe’s presence, so Jordan took Lauren’s hand and said, “I have something to say to you.”
Seeing that Jordan was pulling Lauren’s hand, Chris immediately snapped, “Hey, what are you doing? Let go of my woman!”
With Jordan holding her hand, Lauren’s heart skipped a beat and pounded rapidly. She turned her head to face Chris and explained, ‘Go outside and wait for me. We do need to talk about Chloe.”
Chris knew that, as Chloe’s father, Jordan was qualified to talk to Lauren about some matters. After all, Lauren was taking Chloe with her, even though she was getting married. Hence, it would have something to do with Jordan.
However, Chris was worried that Jordan would ruin his wedding!
Jordan indeed intended to do so!
When he came to Lauren’s bedroom, the room was instantly filled with a fresh fragrance.
Thanks to her helper, the rooms were all spick and span, with every single part of the house spotless.
Although Lauren was a mother of one, the decor of her room was still young, energetic, and lively.
Jordan looked at Lauren and slowly began to speak.
On the other hand, Lauren lowered her head and took the initiative to let go of Jordan’s hand. He then deliberately said coldly, “Don’t address me that way. Just call Miss Howard like you used to, or call me by my full name.”
Jordan insisted on calling her by her name. “I used to deliberately keep my distance from you because you are too beautiful and the relationship between us is quite special.”
“But I figured out now that we don’t need to act like this because I’m Chloe’s father, and you’re Chloe’s mother. We are destined to be in close relations, so there is no need to care about whether it’s too ambiguous or not.”
Lauren understood what Jordan meant. Since the two of them shared a child, it would seem a little too stupid to mull over the intimacy of the way they addressed each other.
Lauren nodded, giving silent consent for Jordan to call her by her name.
Jordan said, “Lauren, I want to solemnly apologize to you. I shouldn’t have said that to you last night nor doubted you. Can you forgive me?”
Jordan still felt now that it was the Howards that took Victoria, but he was certain that Lauren definitely didn’t know about it.
Lauren said, “There is nothing to forgive you for. Since your girlfriend is missing, it’s normal for you to be emotional.”
Jordan said, “I know you agreed to marry Chris because of me. I also know that you don’t fancy him at all and I hope you can cancel your wedding with him. I don’t want you to marry a person you don’t love!”
Lauren shook her head and said, “This matter… can never be changed. I wasn’t acting impulsively, but rather, I’ve really decided to marry him.”
“My family has groomed me and provided for me for so many years. It’s time I do something for them.”
“But…” Jordan could not bear to let her go through that.

Lauren said firmly, “Don’t bring up this matter again. Whether I get married happily or not has nothing to do with you.”
Jordan sighed and said, “Yes, I know I’m in no place to control you, but we have a daughter. Once you get married, what about our daughter?”
Lauren said, “Chloe has to follow me. Jordan, you haven’t been by Chloe’s side the last few years and I raised her single-handedly. She means the world to me. You can’t be that cruel and take her away from me.”
Lauren was getting agitated and Jordan knew it was because Chloe was very important to her.
Jordan said, “I never intended to snatch Chloe away from you.. I’m just worried that Chris Hank would mistreat her after becoming her stepfather!”
