The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 426
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Jordan and Lauren hadn’t gone on a honeymoon after they got married. Besides, Jordan wanted to take the chance to make it up to her since it was her birthday tomorrow.
However, Lauren refuted, “I’ve already promised my high school classmates that I’ll be meeting them for our reunion tomorrow.”
It was actually scheduled on Lauren’s birthday too.
“Oh.” Since Lauren had already promised them, there was nothing he could say.
“Which restaurant did they book?”
Lauren replied, “Sophomore, a campus-themed restaurant.”
Jordan nodded and said, “Okay, go to the classmates’ reunion then.”
Jordan was slightly disappointed. Lauren actually promised her classmates to attend a reunion on such an important day. She must have agreed to it when Jordan was giving her the cold shoulder in the last two days.
Otherwise, given how much Lauren loved Jordan, she definitely wouldn’t have given her time on such an important day to her high school classmates who weren’t very close to her.
Afterward, Jordan ordered Salvatore to send a grand piano to the restaurant named “Sophomore” by tomorrow afternoon. He intended to attend Lauren’s classmate’s party and give her a surprise!
Since Jordan was her husband, he had to be there on such an important day like her birthday!
At 6 pm the following day, Lauren appeared at the Sophomore restaurant, dressed in a simple jacket and a pair of jeans.
It was a campus-themed restaurant and wasn’t exactly an upscale place. Besides, it was a classmates’ reunion today, so Lauren wasn’t wearing a skirt or stilettos. Instead, she was dressed in very ordinary clothes.
However, Lauren was beautiful and even if she was dressed ordinarily, she could still make many heads turn.
Having long gotten used to getting admiring looks over the past two decades, Lauren did not take it seriously at all. However, she didn’t expect to see that everyone seemed to be staring at a woman in front of her and not her when she walked into the restaurant.
Lauren looked at the girl in front of her in surprise. She had a good temperament and figure. Although it wasn’t as good as hers, she was considered a beauty.
Besides, that girl was extremely young. She was at least four or five years younger than Lauren.
‘Is it because I’m old and I can’t compare to young girls?’
Lauren felt that everyone was looking at the girl in front of her instead of herself. Hence, she thought that she was getting old. After all, girls who were born in the 2000s were already adults now.
They had already gone through puberty too. After putting on makeup, she had the charm of a mature woman, as well as the unique pureness and collagen of a young woman. Her skin complexion was so good that a woman who was almost 30 years old wouldn’t be able to compare to her at all.
Lauren paid a lot of attention to her beauty and the maintenance of her youth. Like other beautiful women, she was naturally afraid of aging. However, after taking a closer look at the eyes and comments of the passers-by, Lauren felt that they weren’t purely admiring a beautiful woman.
The girl in front of Lauren seemed to be a celebrity!
“Look, isn’t that the idol, Maggie!?!”
“Who is Maggie? Is she a singer or an actress? What works is she famous for?”
“She’s the one who was exposed by the tabloids after being caught having car sex with a wealthy scion in New York City!”
“Oh, I remember! That scion seems to be from the Huxleys of New York.”
“Wasn’t the matter clarified afterward? Maggie is a victim herself. She was deceived by that second-generation heir, Cayden Huxley.”
“Oh, in my opinion, she’s not a victim. Why didn’t she get deceived by me? At the end of the day, she’s just greedy for money!”
“Keep your voice down, don’t let others overhear you!”
Lauren slowed down and as she heard the sounds of discussion coming from the crowd around her, she finally learned that the girl in front of her was Maggie, a popular idol.
At this age, Lauren had long stopped idolizing celebrities and had never heard of Maggie, especially since Maggie was much younger.
Soon, the two walked to their respective private rooms.
When Lauren entered the room, the other students in the room had all arrived.
This time, there were only ten people including Lauren, who would be attending the reunion because not all her classmates were invited.
Lauren attended an ordinary high school but her classmates’ family backgrounds were not comparable to the Howards though they were affluent.
It could be said that in their eyes, Lauren was a princess who was high up in the air and whom they had to suck up to. Those classmates who were attending the reunion were the ones she was closer to and the boys’ parents were government officials who had been doing well as of late.
In other words, no one else would dare to invite Miss Howard.
In fact, although Lauren was a little cold and aloof, she treated her classmates equally. She didn’t look down on her classmates and think that she was superior to them, just because she came from a powerful family.
“Hey, our class belle is here. Everyone, stand up to welcome her!”
A bespectacled man was the first to get up and clap his hands.
It was Colton, the class president back in the schooling days.
The rest of Lauren’s classmates stood up to greet her.
Lauren was a little embarrassed and shy. “Hey, we’re all classmates, don’t act like this. You’re making me awkward.”
Lauren looked at the private room and realized that the tables weren’t like the usual dining tables in restaurants. Rather, they were like school classroom desks.
Since it was a campus-themed classroom where classmates’ reunions were usually held, the decor was meant to make patrons reminisce about their schooling days.
The private room was large and there was a piano inside.
“Lauren, long time no see.”
“Lauren, you’ve become even more beautiful!”
Lauren’s female classmates greeted her affectionately.
One of the female students who was close to Lauren, asked, “Lauren, did you not bring the necklace and earrings your husband gave you?”
“You guys didn’t attend Lauren’s wedding so you probably don’t know that her husband gave her the most expensive necklace and diamond earrings in the world!”
A few male students made some snide remarks.
“No, I heard that Lauren’s husband is a live-in husband. Isn’t he?”

“Yeah, I heard that Lauren’s husband is penniless and jobless. He doesn’t even have a house in DC and he’s still living in Lauren’s home now.”
Lauren didn’t invite her male classmates to her wedding and only the two female ones who were present now were invited. Hence, many people weren’t clear of her situation and only knew that she had gotten married.
Colton had a complicated look on his face and his eyes were full of excitement when he looked at Lauren. He clearly didn’t only treat her as a classmate.
“Lauren, what does your husband do? Tell us about it. Did the most expensive necklace and earrings in the world really belong to him?”
It was obvious Colton was extremely curious about Lauren’s husband!
