The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 366
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Chris was on his own in the FAO Schwarz store because everyone was on Jordan’s side.
‘Screw you, Jordan Steele. How can the fabric on the teddy bear be considered clothing? There’s barely as much material as my sock does! The teddy bear is shocked? Are you spouting nonsense? How dare you make me pay you $200,000 in damages!?!’
Chris cursed in his heart, but he didn’t dare to argue with Jordan because he knew that he was at fault.
‘I can’t give him $200,000. Otherwise, I won’t be able to humiliate him anymore.’
Since Chris couldn’t beat Jordan in a fight, he decided to defeat him in terms of money and status. Hence, he would never give Jordan any money.
Holding his anger back, Chris walked towards the teddy bear on the ground with great reluctance, and picked it up.
He then walked towards Chloe and said with a smile, “There you go, Chloe.”
Chloe grabbed it and frowned at Chris. “Hmph!”
Clearly, Chloe was upset with Chris for snatching the toy away from her and throwing it onto the ground just now.
Jordan was pleased, and he ignored Chris. Stroking Chloe’s head, he asked, “Baby, do you like it?”
Chloe nodded and exclaimed smilingly, “I do. Thank you, Daddy!”
Lauren chimed in, “Jordan, you don’t actually have to give her such an expensive gift. She’d be just as happy with a cheaper one.”
Jordan said, “I don’t want Chloe to become a materialistic girl but I also want to prove that I can give my daughter the best things in this world!”
After saying that, Jordan glowered at Chris, who didn’t utter a single word.
“Hey, hunk, let’s talk upstairs.”
Miss Monroe patted Jordan on his shoulder before asking him to go upstairs.
There were some parent-child activity rooms, early education centers on the second floor, Lego display cases, and some photo-taking areas on the second floor.
Since it was now non-business hours, there was no one on the second floor.
On the second floor, Miss Monroe greeted Jordan and asked him to take a seat before sitting cross-legged across from Jordan. Due to the small size of the table, the two of them were very close to each other.
Her thin, black stilettos were pressed against the hem of Jordan’s pants, though it was unclear if she was doing it intentionally or not.
Any man in his place would feel really awkward or ticklish, and would be unable to resist the urge to take a look or scratch it.
Miss Monroe was really quite sultry.
Perhaps because of her age and her aura, which was similar to Victoria’s, Jordan didn’t feel repulsed by her actions.
Miss Monroe asked, “Hey, where is your brother?”
Jordan shook his head and said, “I don’t know.”
Miss Monroe sighed and exclaimed, “That jerk left without even calling me. How infuriating!”
Jordan was at a loss for words, either. He asked, “How much did my brother spend here to get that Super Diamond membership card?”
Miss Monroe said furiously, “Spend money, my foot! He has never been here before! After sleeping with me, he insisted I give him a membership card of the highest tier.”
“I was quite confused at that time because Jamie doesn’t have any kids so why would he need a membership card for our store? It turns out that it’s for you.”
“Now that I think about it, that bastard probably slept with me just to get that Super Diamond membership card for you, huh?”
Jordan broke out in a cold sweat. ‘Why are you blaming me for the fact that someone slept with you!?!’
‘I can’t take the rap for this!’
Jordan hurriedly said, “No, no, Miss Monroe, Jamie and I aren’t that close. He almost got me killed. This membership card definitely isn’t meant for me. I secretly took this from his place on the outskirts of the city.”
“Jamie must have pursued you because he couldn’t resist your beauty, your charms, and your domineering aura. He has a penchant for domineering women. I know him too well!”
In fact, Jamie not only had a penchant for domineering women, he also liked elegant older ones, adorable young ones, and all sorts of other types of women, as long as they were pretty!
Miss Monroe was overjoyed to hear that. “You really know what to say. Since you’re one of us, you can come to me whenever you need help in the future.”
“My family has been in DC for three generations, so they have quite a good network of connections.”
Jordan thanked her. “Thank you, Miss Monroe. There’s really one more thing that I need your help with.”
“Since I’m a Super Diamond member, can I book the entire second floor and make it exclusive only to members of the Diamond tier and above?”
Miss Monroe smiled and said, “Got it, leave it to me.”
Miss Monroe got up, walked downstairs, and asked Lauren and Chloe to come upstairs.
Just as Chris was about to go upstairs, too, Miss Monroe reached out and stopped him.
“What do you mean?” Chris asked with displeasure.
Miss Monroe said, “Sorry, our Super Diamond member has booked the whole of the second floor, so you can’t go upstairs for the time being.”
Chris was enraged. He initially wanted to use this method to humiliate Jordan, but he ended up getting insulted by the latter instead.
“Miss Monroe, you won’t let me go up? Do you know who I am?” Chris questioned with a threatening expression.
However, Miss Monroe remained composed. “You must be Chris, the scion of the Hanks, right? You’re so powerful. Everyone in DC knows you.”
Chris humphed coldly and hollered, “How dare you stop me if you know who I am!?!”
Miss Monroe folded her arms domineeringly and said, “Mr. Hank, I’m a few years older than you and I’m sure you know my parents and uncle. Logically speaking, you have to respect me as an older sister.”
“Here’s a piece of advice for you. Lie low and keep a low profile. Your family doesn’t call the shots in DC!”
Chris didn’t expect this woman to be so difficult to deal with, and he knew that she really had a legitimate reason to be so confident.
Chris humphed angrily and left.
On the other hand, Jordan, Lauren and Chloe played together on the second floor until 10 am, which was the official opening time.
By the time the ordinary customers streamed in one after another, Jordan and the rest were ready to leave.
They arrived downstairs to see that Chris had long since left.
Lauren and Chloe were brought here by Chris, so his departure was akin to leaving them behind here.
Jordan said to Lauren, “Don’t blame me for badmouthing your fiancé. Chris is very hot-tempered, and he actually left without informing you. That’s too much disrespect to you.”
Lauren was extremely disappointed with Chris too, but she pretended to be nonchalant. “It’s okay, let’s take a cab.”
“No, wait for me.”

At this juncture, Miss Monroe had yet to leave, so Jordan walked over and asked, “Miss Monroe, did you drive here? Can I borrow your car for a while?”
Miss Monroe took out the keys to her Porsche from her Louis Vuitton bag and handed it to Lucas. “Take it, my dear brother-in-law.”
Jordan was speechless.
He felt a little awkward because Miss Monroe was treating herself as his sister-in-law.
Miss Monroe was quite pretty and had a good family background.. She had a great personality too, but Jamie was a playboy, so he probably wouldn’t get married easily!
