The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 460
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
While containing his laughter, Jordan recalled what happened that night and said, “No, Stefan, Marissa treats me very well…”
Jordan was thrilled at the thought of the slap that he had given Marissa! As Marissa’s son-in-law, he ought not to hit her regardless of how overboard she was. Moreover, she was a woman.
Hence, he was still glad to be able to secretly take revenge against her.
Turning to face Lauren, Jordan said, “Lauren, sit down. Why miss a performance? I’d like to know how much better other men of my age are than I am!”
Martin nodded gratefully, not expecting Jordan to be so generous and gracious.
How confident must he be to sit here and enjoy the performance of his love rivals?
First of all, the performance was put up by the scions of DC and the content was rather mediocre. It was impossible for them to attract the heiress of a top family like Lauren at all. Aside from personal charm and based on family status alone, they would be even less attractive to the Howards.
Who in DC could be compared to the Howards?
After that, there were a few other scions of other cities that showcased their talents but they barely passed.
Finally, there are only three left, namely Matthew from Houston, Henry from Orlando, and Cayden from New York!
Since this talent competition was essentially for the sake of selecting a husband for Lauren, they still had to act like it was to cheer Martin up. Hence, when it was Matthew’s turn, Matthew took the initiative to walk toward Martin and said respectfully, “Mr. Howard Sr., talent shows and the like are not my
forte. I don’t like such noisy stuff. Due to my father’s involvement in the government sector, I was influenced by my father and some of my teachers. Since I was a child, I’ve been more interested in things like face-reading.”
Many people knew that Matthew had an incredible family background too so they started currying favor with him.
“Mr. Harmon, you’re so young but you already know feng shui and face-reading. How impressive.”
“That’s right, no wonder your father has been doing so well in politics.”
Martin smiled and said, “Matthew, since you know how to read fortunes, why don’t you help me read mine?”
Matthew hastily lowered his head and exclaimed, “I wouldn’t dare to! Mr. Howard Sr., I can tell from your face alone that you will reach the ripe old age of a hundred years old. Your family will continue to prosper.”
Matthew obviously wouldn’t dare to read Martin’s fortune because that was just akin to courting death. It was just like how people in history wouldn’t dare to read the emperor’s fortune.
In ancient times, there was a metaphysician in China who had read the face and fortune of Emperor Taizong of Tang who then asked him how much longer he could live.
Despite having the answer, the metaphysician nevertheless got on his knees and said, “Long live, Your Majesty!”
Emperor Taizong of Tang then asked, “How long can I reign over Tang?”
The metaphysician said, “Until pigs can fly!”
Emperor Taizong of Tang was elated because it was impossible for a pig to go up a tree, which meant that the Tang Dynasty could continue for generations. However, what he didn’t know was that the metaphysician was referring to an emperor named Zhu Wen who surrendered to the Tang Dynasty and
was valued greatly.
Later, when he reached the peak of his power, he overthrew the Tang Dynasty and became the emperor himself.
Although Matthew was young, he knew that he couldn’t just read the fortune of a bigwig like Martin.
Even if he did, he couldn’t tell him the truth so what’s the point in that?

Marissa found the bespectacled Matthew to be rather cute and decent-looking. He wasn’t tall so he looked like a middle school kid. Although he wasn’t very compatible with Lauren, he came from a good family and was easy to control. Hence, Marissa felt that he seemed to be a good candidate for a
Marissa smiled and said, “Matthew, why don’t you read Lauren’s face?”
Matthew looked at Lauren and immediately blushed the moment he saw her gorgeous face. “Hello…”
Matthew walked over and first called out to Lauren. “Hello… Hello, Miss Lauren…”
Marissa laughed and said, “Ah, why are you being so formal? Lauren may be a few years older than you but you are still considered to be of the same age group. You can just call her by her name.”
Matthew looked at Lauren and swallowed his saliva. “Lauren… Lauren…”
He didn’t dare to call Lauren by her name in front of her.
Everyone was surprised by how shy and meek this esteemed scion was in front of a girl. He even seemed to have an inferiority complex.
Seeing that he was stammering, Jordan suddenly interjected, “You should be addressing her as Mrs. Steele.”
Matthew suddenly stopped being nervous and looked at Jordan with some anger in his eyes. He was nervous to speak when facing a ravishing beauty like Lauren but he had no issue when facing a man.
Matthew said, “Sorry, I don’t know any Mrs. Steele! I only know that she’s Miss Howard!”
Jordan glanced at the man, who was only about 1.66 meters tall, not expecting him to be so brazen as to snap back at Jordan!
“Matthew, I heard that you’re a guru of face-reading and metaphysics, huh?”
Matthew raised his head arrogantly and exclaimed, “I’m not a guru but you may call me Master!”
Chuckling at the younger male, Jordan said, “Master Matthew, it’s such a coincidence that I’ve done a little research on face-reading, psychology, micro-expressions and whatnot.”
Matthew exclaimed in shock and seemed to be in disbelief. “Huh? Is that so?”
Jordan nodded and asked, “Since you know so much about face-reading, why don’t you help me take a look?”
Marissa chimed in from the side, “He’s here to read Lauren’s face. What’s there to read about yours!?!”
The reason that Marissa asked Matthew to read Lauren’s face was so that she could use it as a pretext to make them forge a deeper communication in a bid to make Lauren fall in love with him.
However, Jordan was right there so how could he allow another man to get close to his wife!?!
However, Matthew said, “Ma’am, it’s alright, I’ll just read his face once!”

Matthew looked at Jordan and said, “Mr. Howard Sr. as well as many elders are here. How impolite of you to still be wearing sunglasses! Take your sunglasses off so that I can read your face!”
Jordan was not afraid that Matthew could see through his pretense because he knew that there was no way this little punk was experienced enough.
Hence, Jordan took off his sunglasses and kept his eyes fixed on a certain spot.
Matthew stared at Jordan while secretly rejoicing. ‘Idiot. I knew it. You’re blind!”
After a careful look, Matthew said, “Mr. Steele, your eyes may seem to be damaged and similar to that of a normal human’s but they lack focus and your visual perception of your surroundings is very weak. If I’m not wrong, you should be blind, Mr.. Steele! You cannot see anything!”
