Stefan also very much agreed with Marissa’s assumption. It was true that Jordan’s elder brother seemed to be simple and non-ambitious as he was even willing to give the power and assets he had to Jordan.
However, Stefan knew that the descendants of the Steeles had all been through tough trials and tests so none of them were silly and simple-minded.
This alone made Stefan feel that Jesse was unfathomable!
After Jordan and Lauren returned to the room, Jordan was extremely awkward when facing her. He didn’t want Lauren to misunderstand that he treated marriage as child’s play.
“Lauren, don’t listen to Hailey’s nonsense. I didn’t touch her at all and she was the one who tried to frame me.”
However, to his surprise, Lauren smiled.
“Honey, you don’t need to explain to me, I definitely believe you.”
Jordan did not expect Lauren to trust him that much and thus, was extremely touched.
It was still pouring the next morning, so Jordan and Lauren left together with Chloe without bidding goodbye to Lauren’s parents.
They didn’t even eat breakfast.
It was Lauren who suggested it because she knew that Jordan did not want to see Hailey at breakfast.
Lauren was always sparing a thought for Jordan and prioritizing him. For the sake of Jordan, she could forgo all etiquette, even toward her parents.
What man wouldn’t want to marry such a wife!?!
On the way back, Chloe dozed off as soon as she got in the car because she had gotten up too early after being woken up before she had enough sleep.
Lauren then asked Jordan, “Honey, should we give Chloe a younger brother or sister?”
They had already slept with each other for two consecutive days so she reckoned that they would probably continue being in a loving relationship in the future.
Hence, Lauren thought of giving Jordan another child.
On the other hand, Jordan felt like he was put in a difficult spot. He had indeed started to like Lauren more and more, but he had never forgotten Victoria.
He also didn’t forget that he married Lauren to find out Victoria’s whereabouts!
While driving, Jordan said, “There’s no rush. If you get pregnant, you can’t go anywhere because you can only stay at home to nurse the pregnancy. We just got married, I still want to take you around the world to have lots of fun.”
Lauren really liked that excuse because she also wanted to travel around the world with Jordan.
“Okay, okay, fine! But you have to take responsibility if I accidentally get pregnant when we’re traveling,” Lauren said while chuckling.
Jordan smiled and said, “I will take responsibility, don’t worry.”
Just like that, another day passed.
At 6:30 the next morning, Jordan slowly opened his eyes, only to find that Lauren was no longer beside him. He turned around to see that Lauren had already put on makeup and a beautiful white dress.
She looked extremely elegant, especially after wearing the most expensive pair of earrings in the world that Jordan gave her!
Jordan jokingly asked, “Honey, you’re wearing such a beautiful dress bright early in the morning. Are you going on a date with some hunk?”
At that moment, Lauren was putting on her earrings in front of the mirror. Seeing that Jordan was awake, she said smilingly, “Honey, you’re awake. Did you forget? Jesse and Yumi asked us out for breakfast this morning.”
While saying that, Lauren sat down on the edge of the bed. The faint scent of Hermes Orange Starlight perfume immediately wafted up to his nose.
Jordan couldn’t help but hold Lauren’s slender wrist. The couple was almost inseparable these days.
With a laugh, Jordan said, “We’re just going to meet my brother and sister-in-law. Why bother dressing up in such formal wear? We are a family, you can just dress normally.”
Lauren said, “How can I do that? I heard that your brother and sister-in-law are staying with the British royal family. In case we meet, wouldn’t I seem too rude if I’m dressed too casually?”
Only then did Jordan understand why Lauren was dressed so formally.
Indeed, people from notable families did attach great importance to etiquette when meeting guests.
At this moment, Jordan suddenly noticed that Lauren had already put on her makeup but she didn’t put on any lipstick.
“Honey, you seem to have applied foundation and everything else except lipstick,” Jordan reminded.
However, Lauren didn’t seem to have panicked at all. Instead, she looked really shy. “I… I didn’t forget.”
Jordan smiled and suddenly understood why Lauren had deliberately left out her lipstick.
It turned out that she wanted a morning kiss!
‘Hah, women! It turns out that Lauren, who has always been pure and simple, is such a scheming girl!’
Jordan pretended not to understand what she was driving out and hurriedly got out of bed. He frantically said, “We’re running late. I’ll hurry and wash up so we can leave soon.”
“Wait a minute, Honey! Ugh!”
Lauren tugged at Jordan’s shirt, but Jordan walked away directly, making her so furious that she stomped her feet.
Jordan was overjoyed. He initially thought that after getting married to Lauren, the two would keep a certain distance from each other.
To his surprise, their relationship progressed very quickly. In just three days, they had already become so close that they could tease each other and joke around without any awkwardness.
The rain had already stopped today and after the couple dressed up, they drove to the hotel where Jesse and Yumi were.
The hotel that Jesse stayed in was usually the venue used to receive important foreign guests, such as dignitaries, royal families, famous figures, scientists and so on. There was no way for ordinary people to get in.
When Jordan and Lauren entered, they had to undergo a security frisk. First, they were scanned by the machine before being frisked by the security personnel. There was double security.
Of course, the security officers who carried out the inspection were of mixed gender, so that each guest would be searched by an officer of the same sex.
However, Jordan surprisingly felt a little jealous even when watching a woman touch Lauren’s body.
‘Geez, surely I haven’t really fallen in love with Lauren, right? I actually got jealous because of that! It shouldn’t be so quick!’
Real feelings might develop over a long period of time. Jordan and Lauren had only been married for three days but why did he have such strong feelings for her?
Jordan had studied psychology, so he did not need to rely on others to analyze his feelings as he began to do so himself.
‘I think the reason that I took a liking to Lauren so quickly is that Lauren and Hailey are very similar to each other! Both of them are beautiful, and I used to like Hailey a lot, but Hailey doesn’t deserve to be loved so deeply by me.
‘On the other hand, Lauren is not only as pretty as Hailey, she also has the virtues that many women don’t. She is kind, loyal, devoted, and understanding. I guess it can be said that she has all of Hailey’s advantages and none of her flaws!’
After a careful analysis, Jordan felt that it probably wouldn’t take long for him to completely fall in love with such a perfect woman.

‘Victoria, please come back quickly…’
Jordan could only pray to himself that way. Otherwise, he really couldn’t be certain.
‘Will I be unable to leave Lauren when Victoria appears one day!?’
Jordan and Lauren immediately spotted Jesse and Yumi when they reached the hotel restaurant..
