The Abandoned Husband Dominates - Chapter 518 - Jamie Is A Good Person?
Chapter 518 Jamie Is A Good Person?
As Emily was very close to Jordan, she did not intend to avoid him. This made Jordan feel awkward because he would recall the scenes in the car from time to time.
A young lady like Emily, who had just become a woman, was actually more open-minded than Jordan, who had been married twice.
Emily said, “Jordan, don’t make it seem like you’re going to war with Jamie. He treats me and my sister very well. He’s a good person! There must be some misunderstanding between you two. Sit down and have a good chat with him. I’m sure things will definitely be resolved!”
Jordan guessed that Emily must know something after being with Jamie for so long. He asked, “He treated you girls very well? But he took Victoria away from me without a single word.”
“Yes, Jamie really treats us very well. He saved my father, and I was with my father during that period of time. I never thought that I would be able to spend time with him again in this life. I’m really grateful to Jamie!” Emily reiterated.
Jordan was stunned. “What? You’re saying that your father, Norman, is on the island too?”
“Yes, yes.” Emily nodded vigorously. “No wonder he was able to lure Victoria away without any resistance.”
On the day Victoria went missing, there were no signs of any scuffle. With Victoria’s skills, even if she was no match for Jamie, she would have put up a decent fight.
Jordan did not understand. “Why didn’t he tell me that he saved Norman? I would definitely support him. Victoria is my girlfriend, so I wouldn’t tell the family about this. Also, why hasn’t Victoria contacted me?”
Jamie had always been a rebel. Now that he had secretly brought Norman out, he had violated the family’s rules again. Although Jordan was obedient to his grandfather, he would definitely be selfish when it came to his girlfriend. He would not expose Jamie.
Emily replied, “Because they want you to marry the eldest daughter of the Howard family.”
Jordan was stunned. “They wanted me to marry Lauren? Why?”
Emily shook her head. “I don’t know the exact reason. When we reach the island, you can ask your brother yourself.”
Jordan thought about it carefully. He had no idea what Jamie was up to. He had arranged for Lauren to be with him four years ago, and now, he was bent on breaking up Jordan and Victoria, and marrying her himself.
Why did he have to marry Lauren?
At the mention of Lauren, Jordan found that he did miss her a little, especially when he recalled what happened at the amusement park in the suburbs of Houston. Those killers who were sent there.
If those killers were really his brother’s men…
Jordan felt worried for Lauren!
Jordan walked to a private room and called Lauren.
Perhaps there were still some civilian planes today that didn’t allow people to make phone calls during flight, but such a backward concept didn’t exist on Zephyr Three.
Lauren immediately picked up the call. Her voice was still as pleasant as ever.
“Honey, are you alright?” Jordan asked.
Lauren replied, “Yes, I was playing with Chloe and just returned to my room. How are you? Have you found Victoria?”
Jordan said, “I’m on my way to find her now. I’ll probably see her soon.”
There was a pause before Lauren continued, “I wish you success, Hubby.”
Jordan asked, “Honey, are you used to living in the castle? Did anything unpleasant happen? How is Jesse treating you?”
Lauren reassured Jordan. “Jesse treats me very well. He asked me to choose another 10 of his businesses and introduced me to many people. He told me a lot about your family. Hubby, your big brother is really good! I’ve never seen such a good elder brother.”
Jordan said, “That’s good. Stay in the castle. If you want to go back, get Butler Frank to send you back.”
Lauren agreed. “Okay.” Jordan added. “Oh yes, is Hailey still in the castle?”
Lauren replied, “Yes, she’s still a maid here. However, she has hired many foreign language teachers and is learning English, French, Korean, and Italian every day. Hubby, I think she’s still fantasizing about being your wife.”
Jordan snorted. “She’s gotta be dreaming. Let her be. I need to leave now, call me if there’s anything.”
Just as Lauren hung up the phone, Hailey knocked on the door and walked in.
“Mrs. Jordan.” Hailey walked in respectfully.
Lauren glanced at her and asked, “What is it?”
Hailey reported, “There are guests at the castle. Mr. Jesse wants you to go down and meet them.”
“Oh, okay. Tell Jesse that I’ll go down after I change,” Lauren said. Hailey wasn’t in a hurry to leave. Instead, she asked, “Um… has Jordan called recently?”
Lauren didn’t try to hide it. “Yes, he just called and said that he’s about to see Victoria.”
Hailey asked curiously, “Aren’t you worried? What if he sees Victoria and gets together with her and doesn’t want you anymore? Or what if Victoria asks him to divorce you? Aren’t you worried?”
Lauren smiled. “I only know that if Victoria wanted to snatch Jordan from me, I would never have gotten the chance to marry Jordan. I’ve always felt that Victoria played a part in helping me marry Jordan.”
Hailey was shocked. “What? She helped you? I think you’re mistaken. Victoria is a slutty fox. She was a “CEO-killer” back in Orlando. She flirted with many CEOs and made their wives grit their teeth in hatred. Do you know what she’s best at? Destroying other people’s families. How could she have wanted to help you?!”
Lauren shook her head in exasperation. It looked like Hailey did not know Victoria at all. If Victoria was really that kind of woman, why would Jordan spend so much effort to find her?
“You can leave,” Lauren said in a cold voice.
Hailey snorted and turned to leave.
Lauren changed into a more appropriate outfit and went to the living room to meet the guests.
At that moment, Jesse was chatting with a middle-aged man. The middle-aged man was sitting on the sofa, smoking a cigar. He looked very imposing
Beside him was a young woman in her 30s.
Lauren approached them and Jesse quickly introduced her, “Uncle Hutton, this is Jordan’s new wife. Lauren, this Hutton James, he has been a good friend of the Steele family for decades.”
Lauren walked over politely and greeted, “Hello, Mr. James.”
Hutton remained in his seat. He did not get up. He glanced at Lauren. “Just call me Uncle Hutton. Jordan has good taste. You are very beautiful.”
Hutton puffed without restraint in the living room, and his sitting posture was very domineering.
Most of the previous guests whom Lauren had seen were very respectful and careful. No one behaved in such a casual manner like Hutton.
It looked like Hutton was also an important figure on the same level as the Steeles!
