Jordan was speechless for a while.
“What does it have to do with you whether I’m letting Victoria down or not? Are you affected in any way? Don’t pretend to be on good terms with Victoria in front of me. You’ve been against her for more than a day or two!”
While anyone had the right to scold Jordan for letting Victoria down, the only person who didn’t have the right to do so was Hailey.
Jordan still remembered how she had snatched away Victoria’s office and called her an unscrupulous vixen.
“Yes, I used to hate Victoria in the past but now, I think she’s just as pitiful as I am! We’ve both been cheated out of our feelings by you, jerk! You’re always putting on airs and despising my love for money in that condescending manner of yours. You pretend like love has nothing to do with money or status.
“And what happened in the end? The Steeles look down on me because I’m from a third-tier family, so you didn’t choose me. You didn’t choose Victoria either because her parents have passed away and she’s homeless.
“In the end, you chose the famous Howards because they can help you! You abandoned Victoria for the sake of your own interests and profits and chose to marry into the Howards instead. Who are you to criticize me!?!”
Jordan was infuriated by Hailey for accusing him of marrying Lauren for the sake of benefits.
Indeed, the Howards were more powerful than the Steeles. Once he married Lauren, Jordan would never have to worry about things like having his assets frozen or being investigated by the police.
However, Jordan had never wanted to use the Howards for clout!
Jordan snapped furiously, “Bullshit! Don’t make me sound like you! I’m warning you, take the child back to Orlando immediately. Don’t loiter around in the Howards’ home anymore!”
Hailey humphed coldly and retorted, “Why should I leave? Your mother-in-law personally invited me to stay at the Howards’ place and your in-laws like me a lot!”
Seeing how smug Hailey was, Jordan couldn’t help but reach his hand out to poke her head.
“You stupid pig. You’ve already been divorced thrice and you’re still fantasizing about marrying into a wealthy family? The Howards will only get married for the sake of benefits and their marriage partners must be of a compatible background. It’s definitely impossible for you to marry into the Howards.
“The reason that Marissa kept you behind is to use you to anger me because I broke her son’s legs. That’s why she keeps hating me and being jealous of me. Don’t you understand?”
Hailey stomped her feet in anger. “Don’t poke me with your finger! What do you care if I’m willing to be used? I’m going to stay, I’m going to kill you, you scumbag!”
As she said that, Hailey slapped Jordan’s body hard twice before flouncing off in exasperation.
Looking at the familiar back, Jordan couldn’t help but sigh with emotion.
“Hailey, oh, Hailey, what have I done to you in my last life to have you pester me like a ghost in this life!?!”
After washing his hands, Jordan made his way downstairs for breakfast.
Jordan, Lauren, and Hailey sat at the same dining table. The two of them were Jordan’s current wife and ex-wife respectively, and they were both top beauties in the country.
The atmosphere at the table became rather strange.
Hailey was clearly comparing herself to Lauren, both in terms of table manners and mannerisms.
Stefan, who was sitting in the main seat, looked at Lauren and Hailey on the left and right and couldn’t help but speak up.
“Actually, there’s really a bit of a resemblance between Hailey and Lauren. If only Hailey was my daughter too.”
Marissa laughed and said, “Yes, I felt like I was looking at my own daughter when I met Hailey for the first time.”
Hailey was overjoyed to hear that. “Sir, Ma’am, I felt a sense of closeness to you two when I met you for the first time. It feels as if you two are my parents!”
Despite letting out a cold humph, Jordan otherwise remained silent. However, looking at the gorgeous Hailey and Lauren, Jordan couldn’t help but feel lucky.
“I’ve married the most beautiful women in the country.”
At this moment, Stefan suddenly asked, “Jordan, I’d like to invite your brother over for dinner tonight. Is he available?”
Jordan took out his phone and said, “I’ll ask him.”
Jordan sent a text to Jesse, who soon replied.
Jordan said to Stefan, “My brother has to accompany the prince for dinner tonight, I’m afraid he won’t be able to make it.”
Stefan smiled, knowing that Jesse was accompanying the British royal family. “It’s okay, hosting the prince is more important.”
On the other hand, Brad suddenly started singing in disdain. Hailey and Marissa couldn’t help but burst into laughter. However, Lauren could tell that her brother was being sarcastic and hence did not laugh.
Besides, Jordan hadn’t heard that song before so he didn’t know what Brad was trying to imply.
“A bunch of lunatics.”
Jordan ignored him and instead, continued to eat to replenish his energy after an exhausting night.
Soon, it was nine in the evening and Jordan had just finished dinner. He initially wanted to have dinner before going home. However, he didn’t expect the rain to get even heavier.
Seeing his predicament, Stefan said, “Jordan, it’s raining very heavily outside and it’s not safe for you to drive. Don’t go home tonight. Just stay here for the night. Lauren’s room is on the second floor.”
There was no reason to refuse as Jordan wasn’t against the idea of staying at his in-laws’ house. However, the fact that Hailey was here made him feel extremely uncomfortable!
Hailey and Brad’s room was also on the second floor, right across from Jordan’s and Lauren’s room!
After tucking his daughter, Chloe, in bed, Jordan returned to his own room.
By 11 pm, everyone returned to their rooms to sleep. However, there were two knocks on the door of Jordan’s and Lauren’s room.
Jordan and Lauren looked at each other, and when Jordan saw that Lauren was going to bed, he said, “I’ll go and open the door.”
He opened the door, only to see that it was Hailey!
“What’s the matter?”
Hailey, who was clad in Chanel pajamas and still wearing the scent that Jordan was most familiar with, said, “I’m looking for you guys to borrow something.”
“What do you mean?” Jordan asked.
Hailey said, “The thing you gotta use at night. We need it too but we didn’t buy any.”
Jordan said in puzzlement, “What nonsense are you babbling?”
As soon as he finished speaking, Jordan realized what Hailey wanted to borrow.
Jordan was exasperated. “Hailey Camden, are you deliberately trying to disgust me? Don’t try to borrow anything from me, we don’t have any!”
After saying that, he closed the door furiously.
“What a petty miser!” Hailey left angrily.
After coming back, Lauren immediately went forth to comfort Jordan when she saw how furious he was.

“Honey, what’s wrong? What did Hailey come to borrow?”
Jordan said angrily, “She wasn’t here to borrow anything but to deliberately piss me off!”
Lauren kept stroking Jordan’s back and spoke to him comfortingly. “I’m sorry, Honey. It’s all my mom’s fault for deliberately letting Hailey stay behind to anger you. We’ll leave tomorrow and not live here anymore, okay?”
“Okay,” Jordan said while holding onto Lauren’s hand.
He was glad that his wife understood him so well and spared a thought for him in everything!
