The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 428
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Ever since he received a warning from his father, Colton had never dared to pursue Lauren again.
As Colton’s father’s position rose higher over the years, Colton had also experienced a smooth-sailing journey in his career. He had already become the director of a certain project. Not only that, the bigwigs from other provinces had to line up to see him in DC.
Colton could tell that Lauren had had a tiff with her husband so he thought that it must be his chance to perform today.
Immediately taking out his cell phone, Colton said, “How nice of our class belle to join us today on such a special day. I have to order a luxurious cake for Lauren.”
“Yes, yes, yes, order the cake!”
“Yes, we have to order a better cake that is worthy of Miss Howard.”
Lauren was rather embarrassed. “You don’t have to order a cake, we can just have a meal.”
Colton immediately made a phone call. “Hello, is it Maxim Cake store? It’s my classmate’s birthday today. Please send the most expensive and extravagant cake in your store to Sophomore Cafe. Hurry it up!”
After hanging up, Colton smiled and said, “The cake will be delivered shortly.”
The students could not help but laugh and said, “Colton, why are you being so eager when it’s Lauren’s birthday? Are you still interested in Lauren?”
“Haha, I remember that you sent love letters to Lauren back in high school.”
Colton quickly denied, “Don’t spout nonsense, or you’ll put Lauren in an awkward position. That happened ages ago. Lauren, don’t mind it.”
Lauren laughed and chatted with her classmates whom she had known since she was a child. However, she didn’t quite hold it against him.
Soon, the dishes were served and her male classmates drank some white wine while the girls drank red wine.
Colton was the first to clink glasses with Lauren. “Hey, former classmate, it’s been a long time. Thank you for being kind and willing to get together with us.”
The others also chimed in, “Yeah, we’re really glad that you’re willing to treat us as classmates.”
Lauren came from a wealthy family and she lived a privileged life that was far above what her classmates could compare to. Their families added together couldn’t compare to Lauren at all.
It was precisely because she had gone to an ordinary school when she was a child, that Lauren had the aura of a girl-next-door, unlike other heiresses of wealthy families who seemed aloof and untouchable.
Lauren said in a warm and gentle voice, “What are you saying? We’re classmates, don’t say that. Besides, I heard that your father has been doing well these last two days. He has quite a high status as a government official.”
“Hahaha.” Colton laughed and said, “No, no, compared to your grandfather, my father is just a beggar.”
Although he was criticizing his father on the surface, he was actually very proud! Apart from Lauren, who came from a powerful family, the rest of her classmates’ families weren’t doing as well as Colton.
Basically, each and every student was sucking up to Colton because there were many things that they needed him for. Even if they didn’t, it would be quite a glorious thing to have a classmate of such a high status.
After having a drink, Colton suddenly asked, “Do you guys know a very popular celebrity named Maggie?”
Lauren was stunned. Wasn’t that the girl who walked in front of her when she first entered the restaurant?’
A female student said, “I know! She was really popular last year and she was always on the hot search list. She has lots of fans. I’ve heard a lot about her from my junior colleagues at work.”
Her male student also said, “Who doesn’t know such a famous celebrity? Why? Colton, don’t tell me that she’s your girlfriend.”
Colton waved his hand and said, “Why? She’s just a distant cousin. Besides, she’s now eating in this restaurant. Do you want to meet her? If you do, I’ll get her to come over and have a drink with us.”
“Yes, yes, I’d like to take a picture with her too.”
“Haha, I need to get an autograph for my brother.”
The others certainly wanted to meet this star from the entertainment industry. After all, their work was typically involved with government organizations or hospitals, which were all very far from the entertainment industry.
Seeing that Lauren wasn’t speaking, Colton asked, “Lauren, do you want to hear her sing? I can ask her to perform for you.”
Not wanting to be a spoilsport and that everyone wanted to see this star, Lauren smiled and said, “Sure.”
In fact, Lauren wasn’t interested in this celebrity at all.
“Okay, I’ll make a call and come over now.”
Colton began putting on airs again in front of everyone and called Maggie. Indeed, in less than two minutes, Maggie walked towards the room that they were in.
“Maggie! Come, come, I’ll introduce my classmate to you.”
“This is Miss Howard, the belle of our class. This is…”
Colton wasted no time in giving introductions and also asked Maggie to accompany her for drinks. She even took photos with Lauren’s female classmates.
The entire time, Colton was showing off with no restraint.
“You guys probably don’t know how influential Maggie is. She has millions of fans on Twitter and any tweet she posts will be shared and retweeted millions of times!”
Maggie was much more modest than before and she said, “No, no, Colton, don’t say that. I’m not that famous anymore.”
Maggie used to be a top celebrity who could garner lots of traffic. However, ever since she and Cayden had gotten intimate in the car, her popularity had decreased greatly.
Colton pointed at the piano inside the room and said, “Maggie, there happens to be a piano in this room and a microphone attached to it. Do you want to perform a song for us?”
However, Maggie was quite repulsed. “I’m not good at playing the piano. I won’t embarrass myself.”
Lauren could tell that Maggie was very uneasy in the room and that she had a rather ordinary relationship with her distant cousin, Colton.
Lauren said, “Miss Stone, you’re so famous. You must be very busy, right?”
Maggie nodded and said, “Yes, I finally had an hour to come out and meet the friends I haven’t met in years.”
Lauren said, “I see. I don’t want to waste Miss Stone’s time then.”
Maggie nodded at Lauren gratefully. “I’ll go now then, Colton.”
Colton waved at Maggie and said, “Maggie, I’ll get the tab in your room.”
“That’s not necessary.”
Colton said, “I’ve already paid at the front desk. Continue meeting with your friends.”

“Yes, thank you, Colton.”
After the celebrity left, the few classmates kept praising Colton. “Colton, you’re really something. You could get such a huge celebrity to come and go as you please.”
“I heard that you need to be worth at least millions to be able to dine with such a celebrity. Is that true?”
Colton waved his hand and said dismissively, “It’s just a little girl that everyone likes. I can always ask her to come over at any time. Come on, let’s keep drinking!”
At this moment, Jordan entered the restaurant..
