The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 453

Marissa frowned when she heard Martin’s analysis. This was also what Martin was puzzled and worried about.
Why didn’t the Steeles send someone over when something so serious happened to Jordan?
Were Jordan’s grandfather, parents, and brother not worried about him? Of course Jordan’s family had to care about him. If Jordan really lost his sight, they would definitely visit him.
However, Jordan had already told his grandfather the truth, so the Steeles did not have to worry.
“Give up on Jordan?”
Martin went through the points again. If the Steeles abandoned Jordan because he had become disabled, Jordan would never be able to know the family’s secrets!
Marissa continued, “Dad, think about it. Jordan is handicapped now. He can’t see anything, How can he inherit the Steele family business? Even if the Steeles have a big secret, they wouldn’t let a blind person like Jordan hold it. Even if we remain optimistic, can we guarantee that Jordan won’t meet with
another mishap after his eyes are cured?
“I think it was his eldest brother or second brother who poisoned him. On the surface, the Steele descendants seem to be very close to each other. But who knows how they are fighting in private!”
Martin couldn’t help standing up from his seat and pacing back and forth. In fact, Martin had been investigating who had harmed Jordan.
If it was Brad who had harmed Jordan, that would be fine. Brad was Jordan’s enemy whom he had provoked in the past.
With the Howard family’s powers, they could easily settle it.
However, it would be difficult if it was Jordan’s biological brother.
Martin sighed. “Jordan has been in low spirits ever since he lost his sight. I’m really afraid that he won’t dare to compete with his two brothers.”
Marissa snorted coldly. “Jordan is just a useless son-in-law. How can he compare to his two brothers? His two brothers are playing him like a fool. You saw Jesse when he came last time. He’s more powerful than Jesse by a long shot. Moreover, I have a feeling that he treats Jordan well on the surface, but
in fact, he doesn’t love this younger brother at all!”
“And that animal, Jamie. He captured my daughter for him. He clearly wants him dead! Dad, I advise you not to place all your hopes on Jordan. He’s not suited to be anyone important.”
Martin sighed again. He clenched his fists and punched the mahogany desk.
“Tm so angry! I can’t accept this! Charleston already summoned Jordan and Lauren to England. It is clear that he was about to tell Jordan about the Steele family secret. But something like that happened to Jordan at this critical juncture! It must be Jamie. He’s afraid that Jordan will be a threat to him if he
knows the family secret.”
Marissa nodded. “That’s right. He was only poisoned this time as a warning. If Jordan comes close to knowing the family’s secret again, I’m afraid he’ll be killed! We can’t let Lauren can’t be with Jordan anymore. Otherwise, she’ll be implicated sooner or later.
“Dad, whether you agree or not, I have to find a new partner for Lauren.”
Marissa had always been very stubborn and was not afraid to assert herself in the Howard family, even though she was no longer Stefan’s only wife. This was because Marissa’s own family was also very famous in the capital.
Martin pondered for a moment before saying, “New partner? Do you have a candidate in mind? Which family’s young master will be willing? Lauren is married and has a four-year-old child. I’m afraid it won’t be easy for her to find a new partner.”
Seeming to have expected this response, Marissa nodded. “Yes, Lauren is no longer a 20-year-old virgin. With the current situation, it’s impossible to find a young master from a big family like the Howards. So I plan to choose a family from a lower class.”
Martin placed his hands behind his back and nodded. “Yes, it’s feasible for her to be with someone from a lower class. Lauren has high standards. She definitely won’t want anyone who is too old or ugly.

“If you choose a family from a lower class, there will be a large number of men who meet Lauren’s requirements. How many do you have your eye on?”
Marissa smiled. “Young Master Cayden from the Huxley family in New York, Matthew from the Manning family in Houston, Henry from the Zeller family in Orlando. There are also some from the capital. I believe you know them even without me introducing them.”
Jordan was surprised when he heard that.
“My mother-in-law is very good at choosing a new husband for Lauren. It seems you have been eyeing Cayden too!”
Cayden had snatched away Jordan’s previous wife. And now, Jordan’s current wife Lauren was very similar to Hailey. He believed that Cayden would definitely like Lauren very much.
However, there was no way Jordan would let this b*stard take her away!
Marissa continued, “Dad, it will be your 76th birthday in another week. I want to invite these young masters to attend the birthday banquet. We will hold a competition on the day of the birthday banquet for them to show off their talents and abilities. As the elders, we can choose who will be Lauren’s next
Marissa, this mother-in-law of his, was actually planning to hold a competition to select a new husband for Lauren? Whoever won would also win Lauren’s hand in marriage?
Did she even have an ounce of respect for Lauren’s current husband Jordan?!
Jordan was furious. “Marissa is even worse than Sylvie!”
Jordan’s former mother-in-law, Sylvie Parker, was just greedy for money and status. But for Marissa, it didn’t matter how rich Jordan was, she still hated him! Moreover, she had placed all her hatred on Jordan because he injured Brad.
After all, she was Brad’s mother but she should also see what her son did to Jordan!
Martin said, “Jordan and Lauren are not divorced yet. It’s not appropriate for you to pick a husband for Lauren at my birthday banquet, right?”
Marissa retorted. “What are you afraid of? Given his current condition, Jordan will definitely not kick up a big fuss at the birthday banquet and embarrass himself. He won’t be able to see anything anyway. When the time comes, we’ll say that you want to see what kind of abilities young men in their
twenties have. Let them perform and treat it as a way to liven up your birthday banquet.”
Martin thought for a moment and said, “Alright, but don’t be too ostentatious. Limit the number of people who know the true reason.”
“Yes, thank you, Dad! I won’t leave tonight. I’ll sleep at your place. I’ll make a list of the young masters I plan to invite and show it to you tomorrow morning,” Marissa said happily.
Thereafter, Marissa came out of Martin’s study and returned to her room.
Before long, Lauren knocked on the door and walked in.

“Mom, you were looking for me?”
Lauren walked over and found Marissa wearing a pair of black-framed glasses. She was swiping her iPad, sorting through some documents and making notes. She looked very busy.
Marissa smiled when she saw Lauren. “My dear daughter, come here. Look at these boys. Which one do you think is the most handsome?”
Marissa handed the iPad to Lauren. Lauren took the iPad and realized that there were dozens of photos of men on it.
One of the photos caught Lauren’s attention.
