The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 87
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Hailey was so excited that she had already treated herself as Jordan’s wife.
‘Since Butler Frank is Jordan’s servant, that makes him my servant too.’
Hence, Hailey said, “Butler Frank…”
Jordan frowned. He thought that Hailey would address him respectfully as ‘Mr. Reyes’ but he didn’t expect her to call him Butler Frank too.
Jordan could do so because Butler Frank was his subordinate.
However, Hailey had no right to do so!
Not taking herself as an outsider at all, Hailey said, “Butler Frank, I’m flattered. Since Jordan treats you like his family, I will do the same from now on, don’t worry.”
Jordan couldn’t help but be amused by Hailey’s words because she was acting like she was granting Butler Frank a boon.
It was as if she was saying that she wouldn’t treat him like a servant after becoming the household’s mistress.
“Thank you, thank you.”
Butler Frank had always behaved humbly. Although he knew that Hailey was no longer Jordan’s wife, he would never dare to be rude unless Jordan gave him permission.
Jordan continued, “That’s Butler Frank’s grandson, Greyson Reyes. He’s about the same age as us, but he has become a wheelchair user due to a leg injury.”
Hailey took the initiative to walk over and shook Greyson’s hand. “Hello, how did you get injured? Oh dear, you’re so pitiful. You’ve lost your mobility at such a young age.”
Greyson said, “I got into an accident two years ago.”
Hailey looked at him with a compassionate gaze. She said,”I’m sorry that happened to you, but be assured that Jordan and I will take care of you just as your grandfather has taken care of Jordan for so many years.”.
After saying that, she turned to Jordan and said, “Let’s give Greyson some money or take him to a good hospital. Maybe, there’s a chance for him to recover completely.”
For the first time, Jordan felt that Hailey was utterly senseless and ignorant.
In the past, Hailey often called Jordan a hillbilly.
Now, Jordan felt that Hailey was the hillbilly.
Jordan explained to Hailey, “Butler Frank may be our butler, but he has a net worth of several billion. He doesn’t need our money. He can easily afford to find Greyson the best doctor in the world.”
Hailey was stunned for a moment.
Hailey began to stammer.
She really didn’t think that a butler would be able to become a billionaire!
After running a business empire for so many years, the Camdens had only amassed hundreds of millions of dollars in assets.
At their peak, even the Collins, whose company had been listed before, did not have billions in assets!
When Hailey looked at Butler Frank again, she no longer dared to be condescending and see him as a servant.
“Are you… also the president of a company?” Hailey asked respectfully.
Still as humble as ever, Butler Frank answered politely, “No, no, I’m just a servant. Mr. Jordan’s grandfather taught me how to invest, and I would invest in all the stocks he invested in.”
“Later on, when he started investing in real estate, I bought some too, and over time, I accumulated my wealth.”
“It’s all thanks to the Steeles that I have the money I own now. Mr. Jordan’s brothers, himself, and even his wife can take them away as they please.”
Hailey was thrilled when she heard “his wife” because she thought he was referring to her.
Hailey looked at Jordan in surprise. “If Butler Frank is already a billionaire, could your grandfather have tens of billions?”
Before Jordan answered, Butler Frank burst into laughter and said, “Haha, Miss Camden, Mr. Steele has more than just tens of billions.”
“More than tens of billions of dollars!?!”
Hailey got extremely worked up, and she patted Jordan coquettishly. “You’re so mean. You didn’t even tell me how wealthy your grandfather is.”
Butler Frank explained on Jordan’s behalf, “Miss Camden, don’t hold it against Mr. Jordan. The test that he had been put through is stringent. If he had told you about it, he would have failed his test, and Mr. Steele would despise him for it.”
Hailey suddenly became understanding. “Yes, Grandpa was doing it for Jordan’s good. The majority of rich scions have been spoiled rotten and act lawlessly. They can’t take any hardship at all. Grandpa’s test for Jordan is a good thing.”
After saying that, Hailey suddenly gave Jordan a kiss on the cheek and said smilingly, “I don’t blame you anymore, Darling.”
Jordan was helpless. If he had been prepared, he might have shunned so that Hailey wouldn’t get her way.
However, Jordan did not say anything in response and merely said, “Let’s sit down and dig in.”
Soon, the dishes were served one after another.
Hailey was overjoyed. “These are my favorite dishes. Thank you, Jordan.”
Jordan said with a smile, “I told you I’d be making it up to you today.”
Hailey reached her hand out to hold Jordan’s hand again. “Don’t say that. Actually, I was at fault too. Let’s not try to make it up to each other anymore. We’ll just get along well with each other from now on.”
Jordan shrugged Hailey’s hand away. He initially planned to talk about the matter after the meal. Still, he had no choice but to do it now because Hailey was seriously oblivious to what was really going on.
Jordan said, “Hailey Camden, I think you’ve gotten the wrong idea. I asked you out tonight because I’ve set you up for a blind date.”
“A blind date? What blind date?” Hailey was puzzled.
Jordan pointed to Greyson and said, “Greyson is about the same age as you, and since he’s the only heir, he will inherit all of the family’s assets.”
“I set you up with Greyson because I know you’ve always dreamed of marrying a billionaire who can make your family a top-tier one in Orlando.”
Hailey flew into a rage. “What did you say? You’re introducing me to a servant!?! That’s a humiliation to me!”
Jordan humphed coldly and barked, “Miss Camden, please watch your words. They are my subordinates, not yours!”
Butler Frank not only had billions of dollars worth in assets but had also financially supported many people like the big boss, Pablo, who worked for him.
The Camdens ought to be subservient to Butler Frank!
Hailey knocked over a glass of water when she was throwing a fit. Pointing at Greyson, she hollered at Jordan, “You want me to marry an invalid like him? You’re just humiliating me!”
Jordan replied calmly, “It’s true that Greyson may not be able to satisfy certain needs of yours, but we’ve been sleeping in separate rooms for the past three years, so you should be used to a marriage without a sex life.”
“Also, Hailey, you are indeed a ravishing beauty, but you’re twice divorced now after all. Most scions would despise you, so I hope you’ll consider this carefully and settle for Greyson!”
Hailey was so exasperated that she picked up another glass of water and splashed it onto Jordan’s face.
“I refuse to settle for him! I won’t even think about it! Jordan Steele, you’ve gone too far! I love you so much, yet you’re pushing me to another man!”
After saying that, she left the private room in tears.
