Chapter 4: Too Much Of A Bully!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
She wanted to punish him with the family rules!
Those who violated the Camdens’ family rules would be severely punished, with the simplest being a board beating and being unable to walk for a few days, and the most severe being a broken finger.
Hailey called Jordan as soon as he could.
“What’s the matter?” Jordan answered the phone.!!
Hailey answered, “Grandma wants you to come over.”
“No.” Jordan hung up the phone right away.
Hailey did not expect Jordan to dare to refute here in such a resolute manner. She put down the phone and said to her grandmother, “He’s not coming.”
Seeing how awkward the situation was, Sylvie frantically said,
“Mom, it’s your 80th birthday celebration today. Let’s get busy with the celebration and ignore that good-for-nothing.”
However, Old Mrs. Camden was stubborn.
“As long as it is something that the Camdens provided for, he has to be here, regardless if he’s human or a dog!”
After saying that, she looked at Drew. “Drew, bring him over!”
Drew cracked his fingers. He often bullied Jordan and thought that this would be an excellent chance to move his limbs.
After Drew left, Old Mrs. Camden returned to the mahogany chair and stroked her poodle. Only then did her feelings get placated.
After that, Old Mrs. Camden said, “I called you all to come over early today because I have something to tell you.”
Herman, Benedict and the others all sat upright and listened to what Old Mrs. Camden had to say.
Old Mrs. Camden said, “Yesterday, someone who appeared out of nowhere was appointed as the new chairman of the Ace Corporation. No one knows what his name is or where he comes from.”
“As you are aware, Landmark Realty and the Ace Corporation have been in a cooperative relationship and are currently negotiating a 70 million dollar financing deal. The contract hasn’t been signed yet, so the most important thing to do now is to form a good relationship with the newly appointed chairman of the Ace Corporation!”
Landmark Realty belonged to the Camdens, who developed the New City residential estate that Hailey lived in.
Landmark Realty, however, recently faced some issues with their funds, and they urgently needed the Ace Corporation to invest 70 million dollars in their company.
After Old Mrs. Camden’s words, it was clear that whoever could negotiate the 70 million dollar investment issue with the newly appointed chairman of Ace Corporation would be rewarded.
The reward might be a promotion in the family business or something related to the final authority over the business or inheritance!
Benedict was the first to speak up. “Mom, leave this matter to me. I will do everything I can to pave good relations with the new chairman of Ace Corporation!”
Herman gibed, “What right do you have to be in charge? I’ve always been in charge of the financing, Drew and I will take care of this!”
Seeing that both of them were willing to contribute, Old Mrs. Camden smiled.
“It’s my 80th birthday today. The guests arriving to celebrate my birthday are all distinguished figures of high status and authority in Orlando. Ask them about the new president while entertaining the guests. I’ll leave the matter up to the first person who finds out.”
“Yes, Mom!” Herman and Benedict chorused.
Drew left the villa and drove his Maserati over onto the freshly paved tarmac road.
Drew smoked a cigarette and dialed Jordan’s phone number.
“What’s the matter?” Jordan asked.
When Drew heard Jordan’s voice, he laughed and said,
“Haha, Jordan, Hailey just told us all about what’s going on between you two. I didn’t expect you to have the guts to do that!”
Jordan was a bit surprised to hear that. “Did Hailey… tell you guys everything?”
Drew answered, “Yes, she has. She was weeping in a distraught manner. Actually, I think the fault lies with her. What is she acting all chaste and lofty for? She’s just a pretty face, isn’t she? She’s not even as good as Elle. What’s wrong with sleeping with you for a night?”
Jordan thought Hailey had cried because she felt guilty and thus sighed. “Let bygones be bygones.”
Drew suddenly asked, “Where are you? Let’s talk.”
Jordan answered, “I’m delivering takeout in Green Park residential estate.”
Drew said, “Oh, I’ll be right there, wait for me.”
Drew stepped hard on the accelerator and arrived at the estate entrance within minutes, just in time to see Jordan exiting on his motorbike.
Drew did not get out of the car and instead rolled down the window on the passenger side.
“Hop in. Grandma wants to see you.”
Jordan thought that the Old Mrs. Camden wanted to see him because she wanted to plead for her granddaughter.
With steel in his voice, Jordan said, “Even if your grandmother pleads for Hailey, it’d be pointless. I will definitely divorce her!”
With a look of puzzlement, Drew exclaimed, “Rascal, what are you thinking? You think my grandmother wants to plead with you? She wants to punish you according to the family rules!”
It was hard for Jordan to open his eyes due to the glare of the sunlight.
However, he was shocked. “Punish me according to the family rules? On what grounds?”
Drew hollered, “On what grounds? You have an extramarital affair, and you have the cheek to ask that question?”
“Yes, I’m pleased to see the miserable state Hailey is in now, but no matter what, she’s a Camden and since you’ve let us down, you deserve to die!”
“I have an extramarital affair? Is that what Hailey said?”
Jordan never thought that Hailey would turn the tables and falsely accuse him of cheating when she was the one who made him a cuckold!
‘This shameless woman!’
‘Even if you want to bully others, you must know your limits!’
