In the Splendor Hotel of Orlando, Florida.
“Sir, your takeout has arrived.”
Jordan Steele, who was wearing the uniform of a takeout delivery man, knocked on the hotel’s door.
The guest room door opened, and Jordan froze in shock when he saw the couple inside!
Jordan did not know the man who opened the door.
However, the beautiful woman in a bathrobe behind that man was Jordan’s wife, Hailey Camden!
Jordan dropped the takeout that he was carrying in his right hand onto the ground!
Just a second ago, Jordan was still curious about the person who ordered the takeout.
Splendor Hotel was a five-star hotel, and the guests who lived there would seldom order takeout.
Even if they did order takeout, the hotel would only allow the delivery man to send it to the lobby.
However, the person who ordered takeout arranged for Jordan to deliver it to the door of his room.
Who would have thought that Jordan would run into his wife while delivering takeout this time!?!
Looking at the takeout that was on the ground, the stranger was furious.
He was just about to lash out at Jordan when he heard Hailey exclaiming in shock.
“Hubby! You… Why are you here!?!”
Startled, the stranger started sizing Jordan up.
Jordan was of a medium build and was very good-looking. He was donning a yellow takeout deliveryman’s uniform.
The stranger smiled and said, “Hailey, so your husband is a delivery man, huh? Hah, if I had known earlier, I would have called for room service instead of takeout.”
Despite running into Hailey’s husband, it did not fluster the man at all!
It was because he knew Jordan was a live-in son-in-law!
He had an inferior status among the Camdens!
Jordan looked at Hailey furiously.
“Hailey, I’ve been married to you for three years! I’ve prepared all of your meals and took care of your dog and cat with no complaints. I did not let you down!”
“For the past three years, you didn’t even let me touch your hand! I always thought you were a woman of principle, but today, you… Why did you do this!?!”
The fair-skinned and beautiful Hailey became horrified, but soon she turned arrogant.
She walked towards the door and said, “But what? Jordan, don’t spout nonsense. The consequences are heavy.”
“Do you know who he is? He is the boss of an investment firm and the scion of a top family in Orlando, Tyler Collins!”
“Tyler is here to discuss a business deal with me. If you don’t believe it, I can show you the contract, but will you understand what the contract is about?”
Jordan was a deliveryman, and in Hailey’s opinion, he was incompetent and wouldn’t understand business matters.
Tyler smiled without giving an explanation.
Glancing at the split takeout on the floor, he said, “At first, I was going to lodge a complaint against you for dropping my chicken soup. However, on account that you’re Hailey’s husband, I shall give you a five-star rating. Only if you apologize to me with sincerity. How does that sound?”
Tyler wore a sinister smile while acting as if he was the victim.
Not only did he not explain or apologize to Jordan, he even wanted the latter to apologize to him.
Jordan thought that Hailey would stop Tyler’s shameless behavior, but to his surprise, Hailey said, “Apologize to Tyler. He’s not someone whom you can offend.”
Jordan got enraged.
‘You two are being such bullies! Not only are you not apologizing to me, you even want me to apologize to you instead, huh?’
‘That doesn’t make sense!’
Jordan clenched his fist, feeling an urge to teach that beast a lesson!
However, just as Jordan took a step forward, Tyler took three steps backward in shock.
Hailey stood in front of him to shield him while yelling at Jordan.
“Jordan! Look how shabby you look. You’re not fit to step into a guest room of a five-star hotel. Get out! Otherwise, I’ll call security!”
Jordan looked at Hailey and lowered his fist a little.
“Hailey, I hope there won’t be a day you regret this!”
With that, Jordan turned around and left.
Staring at Jordan’s back, Hailey hollered, “Marrying a loser like you is my greatest regret!”
Hailey’s pleasant and melodious voice resounded in the hotel’s corridor, but it was getting softer and softer. However, her voice was becoming heavier in Jordan’s heart.
Jordan mounted the motorcycle the delivery service provided him as soon as he exited the hotel. All of a sudden, his phone started ringing.
“Hello, hello, this is Ubereats.”
Jordan answered with professionalism.
An old voice on the other end of the line answered,
“Sir, your three-year character development experience as a live-in son-in-law of the Camdens officially ends today.”
“Your next task is to build experience in business management. Mr. Steele Senior has already bought the Ace Corporation and arranged for you to be the chairman of Ace Corporation.”
“Okay, I know.” Jordan answered with indifference.
Any other deliveryman would become ecstatic if he suddenly became the chairman of a company overnight.
However, Jordan remained composed.
The caller said, “Mr. Steele Senior wants to know how you are getting along with your wife. Do you want to officially let her join the Steeles and become one of the inheritors?”
Jordan sneered and exclaimed, “Let Hailey Camden inherit my family’s assets that are worth billions? Hah, no need for that. She’s not worthy!”
Jordan hung up then gripped the steering wheel while flooring the accelerator to speed through the heavy traffic on the streets.
