Lauren immediately felt that something was amiss when she heard that Chelsea wanted to see Jordan.
Lauren said, “This… I can’t promise that for you. I’d better wait until he’s done in the bathroom so that he can
“Okay then, sorry for bothering you, Mrs. Steele.”
“Don’t mention it.”
Soon, Jordan came out of the bathing room with a towel around his hips. It was undeniable that the man had a body that made many women drool, and even though Lauren was his wife, she couldn’t help but take another glance at his abs. They had just gotten married and she felt she would never tire of him.
Shaking herself out of her reverie, Lauren said, “Maggie called just now to say that her boss, Chelsea Adams, wants to invite you to lunch tomorrow at noon. I think Miss Adams should already know that you said that she’s your subordinate. I heard that she is very bad-tempered and she’s known as a domineering CEO in the entertainment industry. I think you’d better give it a pass.”
Jordan grabbed a towel and wiped his hair. He said smilingly, “Why? Chelsea Adams is a famous bigwig in the entertainment industry. Before she became a boss, she worked as a celebrity manager and TV program producer. That reality, ‘Idol Creation Camp’ that Jenny is now participating in, was founded by her the year before last. As long as I conquer this woman, I will be famous in the country’s business circle!”
Jordan decided that he had to meet Chelsea for the sake of his business trial.
Lauren gave it some thought. She thought that Chelsea might have asked to meet Jordan to test if he was telling the truth after hearing that Jordan Knew Director Smith,
Jordan did know Director Smith and he wasn’t bragging about that at all.
Lauren asked, “Should you ask Director Smith to come along?”
If they were to invite Director Smith along, there was nothing Chelsea could do to Jordan even if he offended her
Jordan shook his head and said, “Director Smith is a big director and artist. I can’t just casually invite him to dinner. That’d be so disrespectful to him. Besides, Director Smith is filming abroad now. He won’t be able to make it. Don’t worry, I have a way to handle tomorrow’s luncheon.”
After washing up, Jordan returned to his room to put on his clothes before saying to Lauren, “Honey, I have something on and I have to go to the study for a while. Go to bed.”
“Oh.” Lauren was obviously a little disappointed.
Since the last misunderstanding between Lauren and Dr. Gale, the couple had been staying in separate rooms for days.
Now that they had finally made up, Jordan had to work again.
When Jordan saw Lauren’s expression, he laughed teasingly and said, “Do you miss me because we haven’t slept on the same bed for days? How about I accompany you for a while?”
Flushing slightly, Lauren was quick to deny it. “Psht No, you go ahead and get busy with your work.”
After saying that, Lauren went to bed and fell asleep. She then turned her body to the side and had her back facing Jordan.
Jordan did not leave directly and instead, walked towards the bed.
Hearing Jordan gradually approaching, Lauren hurriedly turned around and asked gleefully, “Aren’t you going to go to the study anymore?”
To his surprise, Jordan was holding a cushion. He had come over to get the cushion.
Jordan saw the look of delight and surprise on Lauren’s face and couldn’t help but laugh and think, ‘Hmph. It seems that the most beautiful woman in DC can’t bear to be separated from me!”
Lauren frantically covered her face with the blanket, not daring to look at Jordan at all. It was really annoying for her to have a husband who could read minds and see through all her thoughts!
Jordan entered the study and switched off his $50,000 Apple iMac desktop computer.
It wasn’t that he had to opt for such an expensive computer just because the Howards were rich. Rather, it was because Jordan would sometimes make music and Lauren would do some editing, both of which would require a high performance computer. Hence, they opted for the one with the highest performance specifications and best configuration
After turning on the computer, Jordan began to search the Internet for information about Chelsea.
The information about celebrity bosses in the entertainment industry was the easiest to collect and find. Once he typed Chelsea’s name, there were thousands of news and lots of gossip too.
After checking for a long time, Jordan found out that Chelsea’s father was named Keith Adams. To be exact, Keith was Chelsea’s adoptive father who raised her since she was an orphaned child.
Keith was a very prominent figure in the domestic entertainment industry, with a wide network of connections. He had also been running an entertainment company for years.
Dreams Entertainment used to belong to Keith.
Two years ago, Keith reached the age of 60 and was ready to retire, so he handed over the position of the company’s president to his adopted daughter, Chelsea.
Keith was really wealthy but also extremely promiscuous. Apart from Chelsea, his adopted daughter, he also had four other daughters.
There was a lot of gossip and rumors going around on the Internet that Keith raised Chelsea because the fortune teller said that this girl could bring him good luck. However, some also said that Keith had slept with her in a drunken stupor a long time ago.
Jordan wasn’t interested in finding out the truth of the matter. He only knew one thing, and that was everything that Chelsea had now was given to him by her adoptive father. Hence, she was very obedient towards him.
In other words, Jordan only needed to take care of Keith, and then he could deal with Chelsea.
“Keith is quite a big shot in the entertainment industry, and he’s really good at socializing. I guess he should have heard of the Steeles.”
Jordan was confident that he could conquer Keith without spending a single cent and just by using the name of the Steeles.
However, the problem now was how to reach him.
Keith was also from DC where he had a house.
Jordan suddenly thought of someone, and that was Jamie’s lover, Miss Monroe, the pretty and mature woman who was the store manager of FAO Schwarz.
The two had a good chat last time they met, and Jordan still had a good impression of her. However, now that he had found out about Jamie’s intentions to kill him, he was rather repulsed by the people Jamie interacted with.
“Maybe I can get something about Jamie’s whereabouts from her.”
While thinking about it, Jordan called Miss Monroe.
“Hey, are you busy?”
“It’s late at night. What could I possibly be busy with at this hour? Your brother isn’t around anyway.”
“Didn’t Jamie call you?”
“No, that heartless jerk left after he got sick of me. I definitely won’t spare him the next time we meet!”
“Uh, by the way, do you know Keith Adams?”
“Keith Adams? The boss of an entertainment company who’s notorious for being lecherous? Of course I know him. That old man even tried to pursue me but I turned him down because he’s too old. What’s the matter?”
Jordan was speechless that the boss of an entertainment company was actually so energetic.
Wasn’t the man already 60 years old? And yet, he was still courting a woman in her thirties.
Jordan said, “Since he has tried pursuing you, then you must have his contact information, right? Send it over to me. I need to see him for something.”
“Okay just give me a moment. Alright, done.”

“Thank you, Sis-in-law!”
“Wait, Jordan, do you want to come over and have a drink with me?”
“No, I’ve already gone home. Let’s do it some other time. By the way, let me just ask you a question for curiosity’s sake. Do you have Jamie’s name inked on your body?”
Jordan’s eardrums suddenly received a heavy blow!
She screamed and shrieked hysterically on the other end of the phone.. “Ah! Did that jerk Jamie show you those photos?! Delete them! Immediately!”
