The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 410
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Jesse and Yumi were having breakfast in the public dining area, dressed in appropriate attire for the setting. There were not many people here as most of them were foreigners.
“Go and help yourselves to some food.”
Yumi smiled at the two. The breakfast was buffet-style and the patrons didn’t need to present a ticket to dine there. Anyone who could enter the hotel would be free to choose from a plethora of hundreds and even thousands of delicacies.
Lauren was already one step ahead and went to pick the food. Although Jordan also wanted to go with her, Jesse had already stood up and walked over at this moment.
Jesse said, “Jordan, come upstairs with me to get something. We’ll come back again to eat afterward.”
Jordan didn’t say anything and instead, walked out with Jesse.
When he reached the elevator, Jordan asked, “Jesse, nothing happened in DC the past few days, right?”
Jesse shook his head. “It’s okay, I’m here with the prince and the princess for some business matters and private matters too. The Howards wouldn’t dare to do anything to me.”
Swiping his card, Jesse entered the room but he didn’t seem to be looking for anything in particular. Jordan could tell that Jesse had deliberately called him to come upstairs so that he could have a word with him alone.
“Jordan, I’m leaving tonight.”
Jordan was a little surprised. “You’re leaving tonight? Don’t you want to stay for a few more days? Lauren’s parents and grandfather would like to have a meal with you again.”
Jesse shook his head with a solemn expression. “I actually took a great risk in coming here. I can’t stay here for long.”
Jordan nodded, understanding that the Steeles’ current situation was indeed at a very tricky stage.
Continuing, Jesse said with a stern expression, “Before I leave, there are a few things that I want to tell you. After the last few days of scouting, I was able to find out where Jamie is.”
“Where’s Jamie now?” Jamie asked curiously.
Jesse shook his head and said, “I don’t know, but he came to DC some time ago and he even took Victoria with him.”
Jamie was immediately stunned. “Jesse… What did you say? Did you say that Victoria was taken away?”
Jordan had always thought that the Howards had kept Victoria captive to force him to marry Lauren!
In response, Jesse took out a photo from a handbag. It looked like it had just been printed out.
“Look, here is the photo taken by the surveillance camera at the airport that day.”
Jordan carefully looked at the photo of the two of them.
However, based on their figures and the look in their eyes, Jordan was 100% sure that they were Jamie and Victoria!
In fact, Victoria was wearing the same dress as she did on the day that they broke up!
“There’s no mistake, this is Victoria!”
Jordan was extremely excited. This was the first time he had ever gotten any information about Victoria’s whereabouts since she went missing for no reason!
At this moment, Jordan also realized that Jesse’s connections were much stronger than his. He had checked for such a long time but he still hadn’t discovered any of Victoria’s whereabouts.
However, Jesse had only been here for three days and yet, he had already found a photo of Victoria and Jamie. Besides, it had been quite a long time since she went missing.
The longer it had been since a matter has passed, the more difficult it is to investigate it.
In fact, Jesse had also gone through a trial about seven or eight years ago. Hence, he had his own network of connections and henchmen here.
However, Jesse had always been a very private person. To the point that even Jordan, his brother, didn’t know whose Jesse’s henchmen were, let alone outsiders.
With the photo in hand, Jordan asked continuously, “Why did Jamie take Victoria away!?!”
At this moment, Jesse surprisingly lowered his head and sighed, as if he was having a hard time trying to speak.
Given how much Jordan loved Victoria, how could he stand not knowing the answer?
He grabbed Jesse’s clothes and asked loudly, “Jesse, do you know something? Quickly, tell me!”
Seemingly put in a spot, Jesse said, “Jordan, you and I grew up together with Jamie. Now that we’re adults, we may go through long periods without contacting each other or seeing each other. But I think our brotherhood has never vanished.”
Jordan thought so too. The three of them had always been close and their relationship was much better than most brothers of ordinary families!
Jesse said, “But in the end, Jamie and I are not born to the same mother. We might treat him as our biological brother but he might not treat us as his brothers. I’ve always felt that he harbors a strong animosity towards the two of us.”
Jordan was stunned. ‘Why would Jamie…’
Jesse said, “Jordan, think about it carefully. He sent Lauren to you during your battlefield training. Do you think it was a coincidence or a deliberate act of his? There are countless beautiful women in the country. Of all women, why did he have to pick one from a powerful family like the Howards?”
Actually, Jordan had also thought about that question and felt that it was definitely not a coincidence that Jamie had sent Lauren to him!
Lauren may be gorgeous but she was not the only beauty around. Besides, there was also Hailey, who was from a third-tier family and wasn’t valued by her grandmother.
It would be fun if he had given Hailey to Jordan and let him toy with her.
After the deed was done, he wouldn’t be hunted down by the Camdens either.
Jesse asked, “Did the Howards take revenge on you because of what happened between you and Lauren? Was your life in danger at some point too?”
Brad had deliberately bribed Hailey with money to seek justice for Lauren who had been violated by Jordan. He caused Jordan to end up having one of his twin children being fathered by another man, which left Jordan on the edge of collapsing in the end.
After that, Jordan broke into the Howards’ home.
If it wasn’t for the UFO-shaped aircraft that he brought and hid nearby, he would have already been killed by the Howards!
Jamie was the cause of it all!
If Jamie hadn’t taken Lauren away and given her to Jordan, these nonsensical things wouldn’t have happened at all!
Jesse continued, “Although I don’t want to think of my brother like this, after piecing things together… I can only deduce that Jamie did this on purpose, just to borrow the power of the Howards to kill you!”
Jordan was so appalled that he subconsciously took a step back and asked, “What? Jamie wants to kill me!?!”
Jordan couldn’t believe this fact at all!
All along, Jamie had been very good to him and he would often pick the most beautiful women for him and send him the best food and gifts in the world.
‘Could this all be an illusion?’

Jordan did not dare to believe his ears at all. “Why did he do that? We might not be born to the same mother but there’s no need for him to kill me either! The Steeles have so many assets, which are enough for all seven of us to share equally and enjoy for the rest of our lives. There’s no reason for him to do this just to fight for a greater share of the assets!”
After a moment of silence, Jesse said, “It’s not for the sake of money but the family’s secret!”
The family secret?
What exactly is the secret that would be revealed to them only after they completed all the trials given by the family!?!
Could it be something that’s worth more than their assets of over a hundred billion dollars!?!
