“Sorry, Jordan, I can’t reveal anything about the family secret to you for now because you haven’t completed all the family’s trials yet,” said Jesse.
Jordan knew that this was the family rule and even their father didn’t mention a word about it to Jordan.
So he only said, “I just want to know if that family secret is more tempting than our family’s dozens of billions of dollars worth of assets?”
With a contemptuous smile on his face, Jesse said, “How can those assets be compared to our family secret!?! Our family’s secret is priceless! It can’t be measured with money!”
Jordan was shocked and he didn’t expect the family to be so impressive! However, he did not want to think about those secrets and other things for the time being. All he wanted was to find Victoria!
Jordan asked, “Jesse, did you find out where Jamie took Victoria?”
Jesse shook his head and said, “The only thing I’m certain about is that they’re both no longer in the US. However, I have sent people to go around searching and once they find them, I might resort to extreme and forceful measures to arrest him.
“If I hurt him, I hope you can understand, Jordan. It’s not that I don’t care about brotherhood but because he’s gone too far.”
Jordan was put on the spot. “Jesse, it’s better not to be too ruthless. I’m afraid something will happen to Victoria if she’s in his hands. Besides, I want to ask him the reason that he did this!”
Jesse nodded and continued, “I now suspect that Jamie and the Howards have joined forces.”
“What? Jamie and the Howards have joined forces?”
Jordan was stunned again.
“Yes.” Jesse walked towards the curtain and said, “Based on my observations over the last few days, I discovered that Martin Howard is very interested in our family’s secret. That old fogie could tell from decades ago that Grandpa is not only rich but also carries lots of secrets. He has always wanted to become our in-laws and use the marriage to find out our family secret.
“Although Jamie, like you, has yet to complete all the trials, I suspect that he already knows what the family’s secret is!”
Jordan was surprised. “How is that possible?”
Jesse shook his head. “Beats me. He may have found out unintentionally, or maybe one of our family members revealed it to him.”
Two of the three male third-generation heirs of the Steeles actually already knew about the family secret!
It seemed that Jordan was the only one who didn’t know!
That made Jordan feel like he was lagging so far behind that he vowed to speed up the completion of the trials and find out quickly, just what secrets the family was up to!
Jesse continued, “There is something else that I don’t know if I should tell you about because I noticed that you and Lauren are getting along quite well, and you two even seem to be really loving.”
Jordan was instantly shocked to hear that. “Does it have something to do with Lauren? What is it? Tell me, I can accept it!”
Since experiencing the blow that Hailey dealt to him, Jordan felt that no woman could hurt him anymore.
“Sorry, Jordan, in the past few days, I sent someone to investigate your wife. I found out that Lauren is not as infatuated and loyal to you as she seems to be. She’s not a good woman. She pretends to be pure, innocent, and madly in love with you but that’s all an act.
“Jordan, don’t be fooled by her and don’t fall in love with her. You must ensure that you won’t let yourself fall for her. I don’t want the history between you and Hailey to repeat itself!”
Jordan froze in shock after hearing Jesse’s words. In the past three days, he and Lauren had been spending time together and were almost inseparable!
Lauren would text him and chat with him even when he was in the bathroom, just so he would feel her presence every single moment.
Lauren seemed to be such a perfect woman and coupled with everything that he owed to her, he had long fallen in love with her!
However, Jesse actually told Jordan that she was a bad woman at this juncture.
He told her that everything was fake.
“No, it can’t be!” Jordan got extremely worked up and hollered, “I don’t believe it! She can’t be a bad woman! I’m the only person she has loved in this lifetime and the only person she’s gotten intimate with.”
Jesse got just as agitated and he pressed Jesse’s shoulders down with both hands.
“Jordan, don’t be silly! Lauren is almost thirty years old and she’s a beautiful woman from a good family background. She doesn’t have any social phobia either and she has a long list of suitors. How could you be the only man she’s ever slept with all these years!?! Those are all part of her pretense!”
“She knows that you like women who are pure and innocent. That’s why she deliberately created the illusion that you’re the only one she has ever loved in this lifetime!”
Jordan was dumbfounded. ‘Could it be that what Jesse said is true?’
In fact, Jordan was also in doubt because it seemed unlikely to him that a normal woman would stay single for such a long time.
Jordan suddenly recalled Lauren’s illness and said, “Jesse, you have no idea that Lauren has developed a strange illness ever since she returned from the battlefield. It was a psychiatrist in DC who came up with the idea of treating her with hypnotic consciousness manipulation, so she…”
Without letting Jordan finish, Jesse interjected.
“You don’t have to go on. I already know about it, that doctor is named Matt Gale, right?”
To his surprise, Jesse said, “Matt is one of Lauren’s men.”
His words were like a bolt of thunder that struck Jordan’s head!
“What… What are you talking about?”
Jordan began to stutter.
“Matt has slept with Lauren more than once. Silly, don’t believe what Lauren says, she is not a simple woman. She married you for the sake of finding out our family’s secret from you!”
At that moment, Jordan was speechless.
In his mind, Lauren’s beautiful, svelte and pure figure and the words that she had said to “deceive” him kept surfacing. Since Lauren and Hailey resembled each other greatly, the images of both of them kept surfacing in his mind.
Finally, the two women became the same woman.
‘Could it be that Lauren, just like Hailey, is also a pretentious woman who is beautiful but full of lies?’

Seeing how stunned Jordan was, Jesse said, “I’m sorry, Jordan, you just got married and you’re in the honeymoon period. I shouldn’t have told you this. But if I keep my mouth shut about this and let you sink further, you’ll be even more miserable when you learn the truth someday in the future?
“I’m also doing this for your own good. Jordan, find an opportunity to divorce her while you haven’t developed strong feelings for her yet. Also, leave the Howards’ home. If they do anything to you, let me know and I’ll send someone to pick you up and take you back to England. When you get to England, no one will dare to deal with you. Yumi and I will take care of you for the rest of your life.”
Jordan clenched his fist. How could he just get a divorce and walk away like that!?!
Jordan would never let things go without revealing Lauren’s true colors and forcing her to admit her hypocrisy!
“Lauren, I will definitely find evidence of your affair with Matt or any other men.. By then, let’s see if you still have the cheek to say to me that I’m the only man you’ve ever loved in this lifetime! Let’s see if you still have the cheek to say that your lifelong dream was to marry me!”
