Chapter 299: Jordan’s Exorbitant Gift!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Oh my God! What a beautiful pair of diamond earrings!”
Emily was dumbfounded. She was a flight attendant who often traveled around the world, so she had been to most luxury goods stores worldwide.
However, even a girl with broad horizons like her was stunned by the sight of those earrings.
She had never seen such breathtakingly beautiful diamond earrings in such a vibrant color.
One of the earrings was blue, and the other was pink.
Emily couldn’t help but stretch out her slender hand and squeeze one of the earrings in it. She couldn’t stop exclaiming in awe, “It’s so beautiful…”
Seeing how obsessed Emily was, Jordan smiled, thinking to himself that this pair of earrings was definitely a gift that no woman could resist!
Jordan introduced, “These two diamond earrings are named Apollo and Artemis, after the God of Sun and the goddess of stars, respectively.”
“The Apollo Blue is 14.54 carats, Internally Flawless, while the Artemis Pink is 16.00 carats, VVS2 clarity.”
“These are the most expensive colored diamond earrings in the world.”
Emily asked curiously, “How much are these earrings worth?”
Jordan said, “The pink one is worth $15.3 million while the blue one is worth $42.1 million.”
“What!?! $42.1 million!?”
Holding the diamond earring worth $42.1 million, Emily’s hands began to tremble!
A small diamond earring actually costs more than a luxury house in Houston!
“You… I’m really envious of Sister.”
Emily was green with envy. Who wouldn’t want to have such a pair of diamond earrings?
Holding onto Jordan’s arm fawningly, Emily said, “Jordan, can you let me wear the pink diamond earring, which is the cheaper one of the two? Please.”
Emily kept shaking Jordan’s arm while begging him.
Emily had a superb figure, so she was a little awkward when holding onto Jordan’s arm because she would accidentally bump the wrong body parts against his.
Jordan said, “Uh, I have no issue with that as long as your sister is willing to lend it to you.”
“Thank you, Jordan. I knew it. You’re the best!” Emily praised gleefully.
‘Indeed, it’s good to be rich. Even though I’ve offended my girlfriend and her family for not spending time with her for a week, her sister will forgive me easily as long as I give her this exorbitant gift.’
“Okay, I’m going to bring your gift and the love letter to my sister, just wait for my good news!”
Emily carefully put the two exorbitantly priced diamond earrings back into the box. She got ready to leave with the box in hand.
Jordan nodded and asked, “By the way, where does Victoria live now? Is she living at your old house or a hotel?”
Since Victoria grew up in Houston, she should have a house here.
Even if she didn’t, Emily was still in Houston now, so Victoria might be living with her.
Emily said, “My sister is now living in Uncle Russell’s villa.”
“What? She’s living in Russell’s villa? Are they… cohabiting?”
Jordan’s face instantly turned pale, and he had been betrayed by Hailey countless times before, so he was very sensitive to such things!
Even when Hailey was living with Jordan, she could bring a man into their home.
The situation now was that Victoria was staying in Russell’s home!
‘Could it be that Victoria had slept with Russell in a fit of anger?’
If that were the case, Jordan would be livid!
Victoria could blame Jordan for neglecting her and suddenly having two more children, which made things difficult for her.
However, she shouldn’t sleep with her old flame without saying a word!
It was blatant revenge!
Emily hurriedly explained, “Oh, no, they’re not cohabiting. Uncle Russell owns several properties in Houston, and Victoria is just living in one of them. Uncle Russell doesn’t live with us.”
“You can trust me because I’ve been sleeping beside Vicky the past few days, and Uncle Russell has never stayed the night.”
Jordan was finally relieved after hearing Emily’s words.
He also felt that it was impossible for Victoria to betray him, so he reckoned that she should be deliberately staying in Russell’s home to spite him and make him feel a sense of crisis.
The more sensible a woman is, the more likely it would be for men to ignore her.
On the contrary, men tend to show more concern for women who like creating trouble.
At this moment, Emily pouted and said, “Don’t worry, Jordan, my sister must be spitting on you on purpose. Think about it, Uncle Russell is our elder and my father’s former best friend. How can the two of them possibly get married? It must be fake.”
Emily said smilingly, but Jordan began to get stern after hearing Victoria’s explanation.
Jordan agreed with the speculation that Victoria was just pretending to marry Russell.
However, the reason that Emily gave him wasn’t that convincing!
Reason being Russell had already preyed on Victoria a decade ago. Since then, he was no longer just Victoria’s elder.
The naive Emily still didn’t know that Victoria was once the mistress of “Uncle Russell”!
Since Victoria didn’t mention the matter, Jordan thought he shouldn’t tell Emily about it, so he remained silent.
“Be careful on the way. I’ll have someone send you back.”
“Okay, goodbye. Dress yourself up and wait for my good news!”
With Emily’s assurance, Jordan finally heaved a long sigh of relief.
He would just have to wait for Emily to arrange for the two of them to meet!
Soon, Salvatore personally drove and escorted Emily to the Aegean Sea Hills villa where Victoria was now staying.
The villa cluster was considered a top luxury residential area in Houston.
It was lauded as one of the top residential districts for the rich, with a large mountain behind it. It was just like a natural oxygen bar.
“Thank you, Salvatore. You can drop us off at the entrance. There are security guards here, and you won’t drive-in. I’ll get going now!”
Emily smiled and waved goodbye to Salvatore.
“Take care, Mr. Jordan! You may call me anytime if you need anything!” Salvatore said respectfully.
Emily smiled, finding Jordan’s underling to be rather interesting.
Although Russell and Jordan were wealthy, she felt that Jordan was more powerful.
Upon returning to the villa, Emily exclaimed, “Vicky, I’m back!”
However, although Victoria was clearly in the living room, she did not say yes.
She realized that Victoria had wireless headphones plugged into her ears when he got closer.
Emily took off Victoria’s headphones, looked at Victoria’s cell phone, and said, “Victoria, are you listening to podcasts about England again? Why do you like doing that lately?”
“Oh, I know. Are you planning to move to England with Jordan in the future, so you’re trying to get to know more about it?”
Victoria blushed and chided with displeasure, “What nonsense are you spouting? I’m going to marry Russell soon, don’t mention Jordan again.”
Emily smiled, knowing that Victoria still cared about Jordan. She handed the box of diamond rings to Victoria and said, “There you go.”
“What’s that?” Victoria asked.
“Open it to take a look, and you’ll know,” Emily said mysteriously.
Victoria took it and opened it, only so astounded that she covered her mouth. “These are my favorite diamond earrings! Apollo and Artemis! Who gave you these?”
Emily said smilingly, “Make a guess.”
“Russell?” Victoria asked.
“Favorite diamond earrings! Apollo and Artemis! Who is this from?”
Victoria’s expression suddenly changed, and she asked, “Jordan? Did you meet Jordan?”
