Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Lily’s room was dimly lit, and Lily was lying on the bed, her eyelids half-closed as she was on the brink of death.
Diana was sitting next to her while the rest of the Camdens stood at the side.
All of them were waiting for Butler Frank’s answer.
They knew that Jordan was the president of Ace Corporation and the most influential figure in the business circle of Orlando. With his power and status, he could easily find out the truth.
Benedict and Sylvie were anxious and afraid that the information they found out from Benedict’s friend would be fake.
“God bless us, may the information that Benedict found out be true!”
Sylvie prayed incessantly.
Jordan’s Porsche design cell phone began to ring, and everyone held their breaths!
Jordan glanced at the phone screen, only to realize that it wasn’t a call from Butler Frank but a number he didn’t recognize.
“Hello,” Jordan answered the phone.
The caller said, “Hello, Mr. Jordan Steele, I’m the director of the City of Orlando City Clerk’s Office. My name is David Jay.”
“Hello, Mr. Jay,” Jordan greeted politely.
In response, David said, “I regret to inform you that your previous divorce with Miss Hailey Camden wasn’t recorded in the public marriage records system, and the divorce papers that you signed are invalid because they have not been filed officially.”
“Therefore, you and Miss Hailey Camden are still legally married.”
“Likewise, the marriage certificate that Miss Hailey Camden and Mr. Tyler Collins have received is also invalid, just like their divorce papers.”
“Mr. Steele, we have identified the employee who handled your divorce application, and she is now suspended. I will make her give you a detailed explanation and an apology tomorrow morning.”
“Mr. Steele and Miss Camden, if you’d like to file for divorce again, I can process it for you personally. I guarantee the same mistake won’t happen again.”
Jordan said indifferently, “I’ll talk to you about the divorce when I have the chance another day.”
Jordan felt that Hailey definitely wouldn’t be willing to divorce him now.
After hanging up, Hailey asked anxiously, “Jordan, what’s the outcome?”
Jordan said, “We are still legally married, and the divorce papers that we signed, as well as the certificate of your marriage to Tyler, are all null and void.”.
“Yay!” Hailey leaped up excitedly in Lily’s room.
All the Camdens except Elle were on cloud nine and had completely forgotten that there was an old lady on her deathbed right beside them.
At this moment, Lily called out to Jordan softly.
Jordan walked over while Lily held his hand and said, “I’m sorry… my brother…”
Jordan smiled and said, “It’s okay, Grandaunt Lily. I really admire Hailey’s grandfather for knowing ahead of time that the Camdens would definitely make me divorce Hailey because they’re a bunch of mercenary snobs. That’s why he made those arrangements.”
Jordan was definitely furious for having been deceived.
However, now that Lily was dying, Jordan couldn’t say anything too harsh in front of her. Hence, he could only take the opportunity to make a sarcastic remark and take a jab at the Camdens.
Lily said, “I don’t have much time left… I’ll be joining my brother soon… Before I pass, I’d like to make a request to you…”
Jordan was a little melancholic because he discovered that it was getting harder and harder for Lily to breathe.
Lily breathed slowly and said, “Don’t… don’t… divorce Hailey.”
Jordan was stunned!
He didn’t expect that to be Lily’s last wish!
At this moment, Hailey immediately got on her knees in front of Jordan, her eyes full of tears.
“Hubby, please give me another chance. I’ll definitely love you well, I promise, I will never get involved with another man again!”
Sylvie also pleaded, “Jordan, look how beautiful Hailey is. Besides, she’s still a virgin, and she’s been married to you for three years. Can you bear to see such a beautiful wife of yours marrying someone else?”
Because Sylvie understood the selfish nature of men, she said those words in order to make Jordan think that he would be shortchanging himself if he didn’t get back together with Hailey.
Feeling extremely complicated, Jordan insisted, “I’m sorry, Grandaunt Lily, I can agree to anything except this!”
The Camdens’ hearts immediately sank.
On the other hand, Lily got up from the bed and seemed to get down after seeing that Jordan was insistent on divorcing Hailey.
“Mom, what are you doing?” Devon, who was at the door, also quickly walked over.
Lily said, “Help me… get up from the bed.”
Devon said agitatedly, “Mom, you’re in critical condition… You can’t get up. I’m begging you, please just lie in bed!”
Lily had been on her deathbed for a long time and didn’t even have the strength to get up.
However, she still insisted on doing so. Not daring to disobey her, Devon had no choice but to help her get up the bed.
Lily looked at Jordan and got down on her knees, which was to the shock of everyone. “Please… give Hailey a second chance.”
“Grandaunt Lily!” Jordan quickly went forward and held Lily.
He did not expect Lily to kneel down and plead for Hailey moments before her death!
Seeing the way his mother was behaving, Devon knelt down in front of Jordan tearfully. “Mr. Steele,for the sake of my mother, who is in her seventies and about to leave us, please grant her a favor!”
It wasn’t easy to live to such an age!
Although Jordan was only in his twenties, he felt that life was thorny. He had gone through various trials and tribulations. Yet, Lily had lived for more than 70 years. God knows how much she had suffered in this life!
Besides, Lily had saved Jordan’s life before, so of course, he couldn’t bear to see her leave this world on her knees with regrets.
On the other hand, Hailey continued to kneel and plead tearfully, “Hubby, I really know my mistakes. Please, just forgive me.”
‘Maybe everything is God’s will.’
Jordan sighed, looked at Lily, and said, “Okay, I promise you that I’ll give her another chance.”
“As long as Hailey doesn’t initiate a divorce, I won’t.”
After saying that, Lily suddenly closed her eyes and left this world forever!
Hailey and Diana’s voices filled the air, and they knelt by the bed while wailing loudly. They were crying even more loudly than Lily’s children.
Jordan knew that they were probably crying tears of joy too!
The president of Ace Corporation, who’s also the scion of a billionaire family, was finally their son-in-law again!
