The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 500
Chapter 500 Jesse and Marissa…
Stefan had always admired Jordan’s aunt. To a man, the one who got away would always be a regret. This was especially true for a man like Stefan, who had a good family background and was successful.
After all, Stefan could get almost any woman he wanted.
Jordan’s aunt happened to be divorced at the moment, which was why Stefan had a chance now.
When Marissa saw their clasped hands, she broke down. She had just experienced a near-death experience, being robbed and kidnapped.
Meanwhile, her man was with another woman!
She couldn’t slap that woman because she was from the Steele family and it was also Charleston’s daughter. In the end, Marissa was just a new guest here. This was Jordan’s aunt’s territory.
Hence, Marissa could only curse at Stefan. “Stefan! To think that I was still thinking about you when I was kidnapped and about to die! But here you are with another woman! I have loved the wrong man in this life!”
With that, Marissa turned around and ran away with tears in her eyes.
Lauren wanted to run after Marissa. She was afraid that her mother would take things too hard.
Jesse stopped her. “I’m more familiar with this place. I’ll go comfort your mother. Talk to your father first and let him understand the situation.”
Seeing that Marissa had already run out of sight, Lauren nodded.
Marissa had run away without any destination in mind. This castle was enormous and as it was her first time here, she would definitely get lost.
After a short search, Jesse found Marissa in an unoccupied room. She was sitting on the bed and crying.
Walking in, Jesse closed the door behind him. He took out a tissue and handed it to Marissa before sitting down beside her.
“Mrs. Howard, I’m sorry that you encountered such a scene on the very first day at our place. I apologize on behalf of my aunt.”
Taking the tissue, Marissa wiped her tears with the air of a noblewoman. “It has nothing to do with your aunt. Stefan is an ugly toad who hankers after a beautiful swan. He has always been obsessed with your aunt!
“Since the day he married me, I knew that he had another woman in his heart. But I didn’t expect him to still be thinking about that woman after more than 20 years. And after I bore him children! I’ve fallen in love with the wrong man! Even if I fall in love with a dog, it’s better than falling in love with a b*stard like him!
Marissa started to sob again.
Rich or poor, everyone was susceptible to the pain of love. In fact, for a woman like Marissa who did not have to worry about food or shelter, her desire for love was even stronger.
Jesse suddenly said, “Mrs. Howard, if you need a shoulder to cry on, you can lean on me.” What? Marissa was so stunned that she stopped sobbing.
Jesse actually offered her his shoulder…
It would be fine if Jordan was the one who offered. After all, Jordan was Marissa’s son-in-law. A son-in-law was like half a son. There would be no problem even if she hugged him.
However, Jesse was barely related to Marissa. “Jesse…”
The way Marissa looked at Jesse also changed.
She had always had a good impression of Jesse. The first time they met, she felt that he was steady, domineering, and more sensible than Jordan.

And last night, it was Jesse who had sent someone to save her. So it was no surprise that she treated Jesse like her savior.
Jesse smiled. “Why, Mrs. Howard? Is my shoulder not broad enough?”
Marissa said with a gentle expression, “How could that be? Jesse… countless women would kill to lean on your shoulder. It’s just that… I’m an old woman. I don’t have the right…”
The two of them were no longer children. The ambiguous tension in the room surged. They were both adults. It was impossible they didn’t feel it.
Jesse smiled gently. “Actually, there’s not much difference in our ages. I’m older than Jordan. You’re also a young mother, right?”
As Jesse spoke, he reached out to caress Marissa’s hair.
This ambiguous action broke down Marissa’s resistance. Her heart burned with the urge to take revenge on Stefan.
Leaning forward, she let her lips touch Jesse’s in a searing kiss!
In the castle. The living room on the first floor.
Lauren and the others were waiting in the living room.
Lauren asked anxiously, “Why isn’t Mom back yet? Could it be that Brother Jesse couldn’t find her? Did something happen to her?”
Patting Lauren’s back, Jordan comforted her soothingly, “Not possible. Jesse lives in the castle all year round. He’s very familiar with every nook and cranny. It’s impossible that he can’t find her.”
However, Lauren was still worried about her mother. Ever since she found out that her mother had been kidnapped, she had been very antsy.
“But it’s already been more than half an hour. If Brother Jesse found Mom, he should have brought her here by now,” Lauren said.
Jordan looked at the time and also felt that something was wrong. He stood up and said, “Let’s go. I’ll accompany you to take a look.”
Just as the two of them stood up, they saw Jesse and Marissa walking down the stairs.
Jesse walked in front in his usual manner. But Marissa looked somewhat different.
Although she had just experienced her husband’s betrayal, she did not look heartbroken or angry. Instead, she looked like she had been reborn. Moreover, she kept playing with her hair, paying more attention to her image than when she first arrived. How could a person who just had a mental breakdown care about whether she looked good?
Lauren hurried over. “Mom, where did you go? You scared me just now. Did you do anything stupid?”
Marissa nodded calmly. “Silly girl, I knew what kind of person your father was. I wouldn’t do anything stupid for him!”
At that moment, Stefan and Jordan’s aunt walked over.

Stefan said, “Marissa, you’ve misunderstood. I went over early in the morning to learn how to grow flowers from Ms. Steele. There’s nothing between us.”
Jordan’s aunt apologized to Marissa as well. “I’m sorry, Mrs. Howard. I should have been more careful.”
It was clear that Marissa was still a little angry. She snorted coldly but did not rebuke them.
Jesse said, “Alright, alright. We’re family. Let’s not be angry anymore. Lauren’s mother has come to our place, so we have to treat her well. I’ll wake Grandpa up now. Let’s have breakfast together.”
Marissa suddenly reached out to pull Jesse back, but then she quickly withdrew her hand as if to avoid arousing suspicion. “Um, Jesse, I want to take a shower first. Can you call your grandfather in another half an hour?”
