Chapter 63: Hailey’s Wedding Invitation!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Hailey was just as surprised. “Miss Clarke, why do you remember Jordan’s birthday?”
In her opinion, Jordan was only Victoria’s bodyguard, and it made no sense for her to remember his birthday so clearly.
Of course, she didn’t know that Victoria had her eye on Jordan, so of course, she would remember his birthday clearly.
Victoria explained, “Oh, he happens to share the same birthday as my father. I’ve also seen Jordan’s ID, so I remember it well.”
“Mrs. Collins, Jordan is your ex-husband, and you guys were once in love, right? It seems a little insensitive of you to hold your wedding on his birthday. Or did you simply forget that his birthday falls on the same day?”
Hailey said, “Of course I remember his birthday! However, the wedding date was set by the Collins, and I also tried persuading Tyler to pick another date. Still, he insisted on the 12th of May. I couldn’t do anything about it.”
Tyler had already checked up on Jordan’s profile and knew that his birthday was on the 12th of May. Thus, he deliberately chose to set his wedding with Hailey on this day to agitate Jordan!
Not wanting to continue talking about Jordan, Hailey decided to change the subject. “Where’s Mr. Steele? Is he in the office? Can I pass the invitation card to him?”
Victoria said, “I think so, be my guest.
Victoria knew that Jordan was in the office. Still, there was no way she could tell Hailey that Jordan was Mr. Steele, as in the president of Ace Corporation.
“You’re welcome to attend our wedding on the 12th of May.”
Hailey smiled and handed the invitation card to Victoria before going to the president’s office.
Hailey knocked on the door.
Hailey pushed the door open, only to be disappointed to see that Jordan was the only one around. “Mr. Steele isn’t in, huh?”
Jordan happened to have stood up to throw something into the bin, so he wasn’t at the president’s desk, but he couldn’t be bothered to explain either. “Do you have a problem?”
Hailey handed the wedding invitation to Jordan and said, “Hand this to Mr. Steele when he’s here.”
There was a sky-blue ribbon on the white, floral-die-cut base of the invitation card, which seemed rather luxurious and opulent.
When Jordan saw it, he was stunned. “This…”
Hailey said, “Tyler and I have settled on a wedding date. It’s going to be on the 12th of May, which is also your birthday.”
Jordan stared at Hailey angrily.
Hailey frantically explained, “Don’t look at me like that. I wasn’t the one who decided on the date.”
Jordan was furious at first, but he soon seemed to think of something and burst into laughter again.
‘You chose to hold your wedding on my birthday. Do you have a death wish?’
Jordan took the wedding invitation and said, “Congratulations, Hailey Camden, you’ve finally married a wealthy man.”
Knowing that Jordan was upset, Hailey hesitated for a moment but nevertheless gave him an invitation too.
“This one’s for you.”
Jordan smiled because he didn’t expect to receive two invitation cards to his ex-wife’s wedding.
He deliberately opened it to take a look. He saw that there was an additional line of words on the invitation card to “Jordan” — ‘If you’re a man, turn up for the wedding so you can see what a grand and lavish wedding is like!’
On the other hand, the invitation card to “Mr. Steele” read:
‘To Mr. Steele, President of Ace Corporation:
Dear Mr. Steele, the wedding ceremony is scheduled to be held at 11:00 AM on the 12th of May at the Ritz Carlton Orlando. Everyone knows that you are a whale of the business industry, the Collins and the Collins have been in awe of you for a long time. We hope to have the honor of meeting you, and we will indeed host you with the best hospitality!”
Jordan looked at both the wedding invitation cards and couldn’t help but find it ironic.
Both invitations were to him but as different identities. Yet, there was a world of difference between the content of both cards!
That’s how pragmatic society is!
It was no wonder that Hailey wanted to marry into a wealthy family.
Hailey couldn’t understand the meaning behind Jordan’s smile, but she nevertheless said, “I think you’d better not turn up. I know you still love me, and you’ll definitely be devastated on the day of my wedding. If you end up having too much to drink and kick up a fuss, it’d be too embarrassing for me.”
Jordan sneered. “Hah, do you think I’d kick up a fuss at your wedding for your sake? Hailey Camden, you’re overthinking! Since your husband wants me to go so badly, I will. Don’t worry, I won’t get drunk, and I won’t get into fights or create trouble for you.”
Hailey nodded and said, “Alright then.”
Hailey knew that Jordan was extremely good at fighting, and if he lost his temper, no one would be able to stop him from creating trouble.
“By the way, how are you considering the matter I mentioned to you previously?”
Hailey suddenly lowered her volume and asked sneakily like a thief.
“What are you referring to?” Jordan didn’t immediately process what she was saying.
Hailey smacked Jordan’s arm angrily. “Dimwit, I’m referring to the matter I mentioned to you at the concert the other day.”
Only then did Jordan realize what she meant. “You mean the matter regarding me being your standby lover and waiting for you for three years? Hah, I told you, it’s impossible!”
“Hailey Camden, you can’t get the best of both worlds. You can only choose one, but unfortunately, you chose Tyler Collins!”
Hailey was enraged too. “Unfortunate, my ass! Unfortunately, I chose you! I’m not going to divorce Tyler. We’ll stay a loving couple for the rest of our lives while you remain single, grumpy, and jealous for the rest of your life!”
After lashing out at Jordan, she was still displeased. She continued after a pause, “Jordan, just keep pretending. I know you’re putting on a strong front. When you see how happy I am on the day of my wedding to a wealthy man, you’ll definitely cry like a dog!”
After saying that, Hailey rushed out in exasperation.
‘Cry like a dog? Hah, I’m afraid you and Tyler Collins will be the ones crying on that day!’
Jordan didn’t say those words out loud, but he would definitely make it happen.
On the day of their wedding, Hailey will discover that she had let the king of business in Orlando slip!
Meanwhile, she had married a poor man who was about to go bankrupt!
In a fit of anger, Jordan tore both the wedding invitations to pieces!
At this moment, Victoria entered, and when she saw that, she said, “Tyler Collins really has a death wish. How dare he choose to get married on your birthday? He obviously wants to upset you!”
Jordan humphed coldly. “He wants to provoke me by doing that? He’s just a mere investor. Who is he to compare to me? Victoria, inform all our business partners of the date of my birthday.”
Victoria said with a smile, “Yes!” She had long wanted to throw a grand birthday party for Jordan.
A week later.
At six o’clock in the morning of the 12th of May.
“Damn it! I lost again! How did this happen!?! Isn’t this a proper and user-friendly game? Why did the developer get seized for breaking the rules?”
Tyler stayed up all night in his groom’s suit and spoke on the phone in his room.
The 75 million dollars that his father gave him have been invested in more than 200 companies in the past week!
More than half of the investments failed, which was normal.
He was making considerable returns on his investments in more than ten out of those 200-odd companies at first. However, they suddenly faced problems one after another.
Besides, the problems were not trivial as they put those companies either on the verge of bankruptcy or destruction!
Almost all 75 million dollars that Tyler had invested were gone!
