The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 422
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Jordan left his home and headed to the hotel where Matt was by car.
Matt was held in purgatory for three days, during which he was told that he would not be fed any food if he refused to speak. But Jordan was merely scaring him and had actually prepared a sumptuous spread for lunch for him.
However, Matt was quite gutsy to have eaten only the fruit and dessert.
Seeing Jordan coming, Matt remained righteous-looking.
“Jordan, I’m still going to say the same thing. Those photos don’t belong to me and I didn’t take those photos at all. I did not disrespect Miss Howard in any way. You may check the footage of every treatment session that I have given her.”
Jordan also compared the people in the photos. The man’s legs were darker and coarser than Matt’s.
Matt was a very gentle person who hadn’t done much physical labor and seldom went to the gym. Hence, they could deduce that Matt was innocent.
“Let’s go, Dr. Gale,” Jordan said to Matt.
Matt asked, “Where to? Do you believe me now?”
Jordan nodded. “To your house. Don’t you want to know who framed you and is mocking me at the same time?”
Hence, Jordan and Matt returned to Matt’s house together.
Jordan firmly believed that there was no perfect crime. Since someone had come to Matt’s home and placed the photos there, they must have left some traces behind.
Firstly, the secret contraption in the headboard of Matt’s bed couldn’t be found easily and it would take at least a few minutes to find it.
Secondly, the photos were placed after the contraption was discovered.
It meant that after this person left, he found a woman with a figure similar to Lauren’s and took those photos with her.
He then came over again.
To have visited twice in a row, there was a high probability that there were clues left behind.
Matt entered his home and asked, “Do you want me to go to the manager of the property and ask for the surveillance footage of the past days?”
In response, Jordan said, “Surveillance cameras are the deadliest enemies of experts and they’re best at evading cameras. He would have been careful to avoid surveillance cameras, leaving fingerprints, and other things like that.”
As Jordan walked, he suddenly smelled a strange odor and asked, “What’s that smell?”
Matt was embarrassed for a while, and he frantically rushed forward to point at a rubbish bin.
“I’m sorry, I’ve been too lazy, this trash can has been full for a long time. I forgot to empty it.”
Jordan said, “Dump out the trash can.”
Matt was a little reluctant. The trash can was full of filthy things so why would they empty it?
The trash cans in Matt’s house were the kind that was high-end, smart-sensing, and covered. It was not the kind where the contents could be seen immediately at a glance.
Matt nevertheless poured out the contents of the trash can, and the crowd instantly covered their noses.
Feeling bewildered, Salvatore said, “Dr. Gale, you seem to be a clean freak. These rotten eggs have been there for a long time. Yet, you didn’t dump them out.”
Matt was embarrassed.
However, Jordan did not care about these details.
Kicking all the garbage away with his foot, he found a cigarette butt inside.
“Dr. Gale, do you smoke?”
Matt immediately got worked up. “I don’t smoke! This cigarette butt is definitely not mine!”
He shockingly discovered something.
Jordan immediately crouched down and picked up the cigarette butt.
The cigarette butt was a Marlboro and there was only one word at the side of the butt. It was “Jamie”!
“Jamie! It’s Jamie!”
Jordan suddenly recalled that the three of them had bought a ticket when they went out for some fun after training years ago. That was the first time Jamie learned how to smoke and he even engraved his name on the butt of each cigarette.
Jordan then asked him why he had to write his name on the cigarettes.
Back then Jamie had replied, “Cigarettes are like women, I have to give it an exclusive mark. I’m not only going to write my name on the cigarette, but later, I’m going to write my name on the most beautiful woman in the world, haha.”
Jordan and Jesse both cursed, “Pervert!”
Based on Jamie’s habits, he would leave his name on every cigarette he smoked and every woman he slept with.
“Mr. Jordan… Was this really done by your brother?”
Salvatore was in disbelief. He hadn’t met Jamie before. After meeting Jesse, Salvatore felt that Jesse was very imposing, and he had been really curious about Jamie.
At the same time, Salvatore was in a dilemma. What if Jordan’s second brother was against Jordan?
“It’s him, he must have learned that Jesse is investigating Lauren, so he deliberately put these things in Dr. Gale’s house in advance. He was just out to make Jesse tell me that there’s something wrong with Lauren.
“I would have then fallen out with the Howards and I might have even gotten killed by them. His agenda was to make me an enemy of the Howards and thus use them to get rid of me!”
Salvatore could not help but swallow his saliva and asked, “Mr. Jordan, is your brother… powerful or not?”
Salvatore was a little scared that he might not be able to defeat Jamie!
At this moment, Jordan’s phone rang.
“Jordan, it’s Grandpa.”
The person who called was not Jordan’s grandfather, but Lauren’s grandfather.
“Mr. Howard Sr., what is it?”
“Come to my place for dinner, I have something to say to you.”
With so many things happening recently, Martin must have found out about it, so Jordan had no choice but to give him an explanation.
After arriving at Martin’s home, Jordan had a quick bite with Martin before going to Martin’s study.
Martin asked, “I heard you brought Chloe to get another paternity test done. Is that true?”
Jordan lowered his head and said, “Yes, I apologize, I shouldn’t have doubted your granddaughter. I fell into someone else’s trap.”
Martin said in a calm tone, “I know a bit about this matter too. As a man, it’s only normal to be angry after seeing those photos. I was also worried about Lauren and Matt Gale getting too close for her own good previously but his grandparents and parents are very good people, so I was relieved.
“Jordan, this time, I won’t blame you. After all, your ex-wife cheated on you before so it’s normal for you to be a little sensitive. On the contrary, you didn’t hit Lauren after you suspected that she had cheated you, nor did you say anything too callous.
“I heard Lauren say that you told her that even if Chloe is not your daughter, you’d still raise her as your own and I’m very heartened to hear that! It seems that you really treat Lauren and Chloe as your family.”
Jordan remained silent.

Indeed, Chloe and Lauren had already become indispensable family members of Jordan’s within this short period of time!
Martin asked, “Have you found out who pulled this trick on you?”
Jordan paused for a moment but he didn’t mention Jamie’s name.
However, to his surprise, Martin smiled and asked, “Is it your brother, Jamie?”
Jordan was instantly appalled.. How did Martin know about it!
