The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 459

Cayden looked at Jordan and greeted him kindly with a smile on his face.
“Jordan, it’s been a while since we met and you’re still as cool as ever. With those shades on, you look just like a celebrity. How suave.”
Cayden had leamed his lesson since the last time they met. Jordan dealt with him previously by breaking the finger he had used to touch Hailey’s thigh and causing him to lose his fertility. Even when he was far away from the United States, he had also received a random beating from Jordan.
The recollection of being attacked by Jordan previously made him wince inwardly. As the scion of the Huxleys, he had never been so terrified of someone before!
Jordan had been looking in front so he didn’t raise his head. Since Jordan was now pretending to be a blind person, he wasn’t supposed to see anything so naturally, he wouldn’t raise his head to look at the person who was talking to him.
Cocking his head instead, Jordan then turned his right ear towards Cayden and asked with some doubts, “You… Cayden Huxley?”
Cayden deliberately pretended to be surprised. “Yes, Jordan, I’m Cayden Huxley. It hasn’t been that long since we met. Surely you can still recognize me, can’t you?”
At this moment, Marissa came over and whispered to Cayden, “Jordan encountered a mishap some time ago and now he’s blind. He can’t see anything anymore.”
Cayden instantly pretended to be astounded, as if it was his first time learning that Jordan had gone blind.
“What? What kind of person would be so brazen as to harm the esteemed Mr. Jordan Steele? Who doesn’t know he is the Howards’ son-in-law!?!”
Jordan glanced at Cayden’s facial expression. Since he was wearing shades, Cayden couldn’t tell that Jordan was now looking at him.
That was also one of the reasons that Jordan insisted on wearing sunglasses. It was so that he could stare at others openly without restraint.
Based on the exaggerated expression on Cayden’s face, Jordan had already come to a conclusion.
‘Cayden Huxley is pretending to be surprised. He should have known about my blindness a long time ago. However, this does not prove that he’s the culprit who harmed me. Cayden Huxley and the guys that Marissa had chosen to marry Lauren, should all be aware of my blindness.
Since Cayden and the rest had been told that they had a chance to replace Jordan as Lauren’s husband, they should have known about Jordan’s blindness a long time ago.
In fact, Lauren also had some doubts and wondered if the person who had harmed her husband was Cayden Huxley. When she saw how sad and furious Cayden was about Jordan’s plight, she couldn’t help but question him doubtfully.
“Mr. Huxley, I remember that you and my husband are love rivals. You seem to be at odds against him but why does it seem like you’re sadder than us as if he’s your best friend?”
Cayden was taken aback as he wondered to himself, ‘Could it be that I can’t even convince a woman like Lauren with my exaggerated acting?”
Cayden hastily explained, “Miss Howard, it’s true that Jordan and I had gotten into a conflict before because of what happened to Hailey but since Hailey and I got divorced, there’s no reason for us to be enemies anymore. That’s not all. In fact, I can empathize with Jordan because we had both been hurt by
the same woman!
“We loved Hailey so much, loved her, coaxed her, made her good food and treated her like a goddess. However, once we became penniless, she resolutely decided to leave us! Ah the more I think about it, the more I regret getting into a conflict with Jordan over a woman like Hailey Camden. It isn’t worth it

Brad, who was at the side, couldn’t bring himself to listen any longer. Although Hailey wasn’t around, she had been by Brad’s side recently so she was considered Brad’s woman.
Bursting into the conversation, Brad snapped, “What are you saying? What’s wrong with Hailey? Did she force you guys to pursue her? Has she ever forced you to treat her like a goddess? Cut the crap if you can’t handle a beautiful woman!”
Cayden didn’t know that Hailey was with Brad so he was dumbfounded and confused as to why Brad was snapping at him. He didn’t dare to mention Hailey again and instead, placed his hand on Jordan’s shoulder as though he was comforting him.
“Jordan, medical technology is so advanced these days. I’m sure your eyes are going to get cured. Once you recover, let’s go play basketball together. I’d like to witness you pulling off a Carolina dunk again.”
Despite saying that, he thought to himself, Jordan, you cripple. It’s over for you. Forget about ever getting your eyes cured or performing a slam dunk in this lifetime. Hahaha!”
The last time he watched the Olympics in Tokyo, Jordan performed a slam dunk in front of Cayden and Hailey! He even asked Hailey, who was still Cayden’s wife at that time, to the hotel room together with Jordan.
Cayden was still in the dark about what happened in the room back then and he probably wouldn’t ever have the chance to know. If anything, he was still very self-righteous as he felt a great sense of superiority over Jordan, just because he had once made him a cuckold.
In fact, given how proactive Hailey was towards Jordan, Jordan would have made him a cuckold at least ten times if he wanted to.
Jordan nodded. Not to mention finding a chance in the future. He could easily perform a dunk in front of him now!
Cayden didn’t say anything more. After sending him the gifts, he returned to his seat.
Soon, the banquet began and after an hour, Alex walked to the middle of the courtyard and spoke to everyone.
“Everyone, first of all, thank you all again for coming to congratulate my grandfather on his birthday. Secondly, my grandfather has always been very concerned about the growth and abilities of the younger generation’s male heirs. So, we have invited young men under the age of 25 from all the major
wealthy families in the country this time. They will be showing us their respective talents and abilities!”
Just as Alex finished speaking, there was a round of applause at the venue. Marissa had selected a dozen young talents this time as candidates for Lauren’s next husband. However, there were only three people she admired the most, namely Cayden, Matthew, and Henry.”
Just as the performance was about to start, Lauren suddenly got up and said, “Grandpa, I’m full, I’ll go back with Jordan first.”

Marissa immediately said, “You are not allowed to leave. We’re choosing a husband for you now. How can you be absent at such a crucial moment!?!”
Lauren sulked and exclaimed, “Mom, my husband is still here. Can you show him some respect!?!”
Taking Lauren’s hand, Jordan said to his wife soothingly, “Lauren, don’t talk to your mother like that. Marissa tends to lose control of herself so we should be more understanding since we’re her juniors.”
Flustered, a look that would usually appear only on the face of a little girl suddenly graced the face of Marissa who was in her forties. She was so furious that she started speaking incoherently. “You… Who are you saying tends to lose control of herself? What… what do you mean!?!”
Stefan, who was at the same table as time, also asked curiously, “Jordan, did Marissa hit you again?”
