Hailey and her then-husband, Jordan, were the ones who had put forward the proposal of that project.
However, Herman and his family took over the project because he had a higher status among the Camdens than Hailey.
Now that the president of Ace Corporation had repeatedly declined to meet Herman and his children, Hailey felt like giving it a try.
Elle gibed scornfully, “Mr.
Steele refuses to meet any of us.
Why would he agree to meet you Youre taking yourself too seriously.”
Standing at the side, Sylvie spoke up for her daughter, “Let Hailey give it a shot.
She was the one who came up with the idea of this project anyway.”
Camden, whose name was Diana, thought about it and realized that there was no other solution at the moment.
She could either go herself or let Hailey go on her behalf.
Diana said, “Alright, Hailey, make a trip to Ace Corporation.
If it still doesnt work out this time, Ill go visit Mr.
Steele myself! In short, we have to cooperate with Ace Corporation at all costs!”
Hailey arrived at the Ace Corporations office building at two oclock in the afternoon.
She was dressed in a thin, white-colored sweater paired with a red checkered skirt and a Swarovski necklace.
It was a pure, girl-next-door outfit.
“Miss Camden, please wait in the meeting room for a while.
Steele is busy at the moment.”
Ashley brought Hailey to the meeting room and poured her a glass of water.
That was precisely what Hailey wanted because she didnt like drinking complicated beverages.
Her favorite drink was plain water with honey because, in her opinion, drinking water was the best way to maintain a good complexion and skin.
In the past three years, she would ask Jordan to make her a cup of honey water every single morning.
After getting divorced, Hailey had no choice but to do it herself.
Whenever she made herself some honey water, it would remind her of Jordan.
Ashley went to the presidents office, where Jordan and Victoria were both in.
Ashley said, “Mr.
Steele, Hailey Camden is here.”
Victoria waved her hand and asked Ashley to leave.
When she saw the apparent changes in Jordans expression, Victoria asked, “Do you want to see her”
Jordan said, “Herman, Elle, and Drew Camden came to negotiate the contract today, but I declined to meet all of them.
If I turn Hailey down too, the Camdens will definitely think we are just making a fool out of them.”
“Since we have decided to cooperate with them, lets give them the 11 million dollars as agreed.
Victoria, bring the contract over here.”
Victoria handed the contract to Jordan, who then brought it with him to the meeting room.
Jordan saw Hailey as soon as he opened the door, and the moment he did, he felt as if it was a lifetime ago that they last met.
Jordan was very familiar with Haileys outfit today because it was her favorite outfit that she often wore at home too.
Jordan also liked how she looked when she wore that outfit because it made her seem very pure, just like the shy and innocent college student she was when they first met…
He had to admit that regardless of whether he hated her now or not, he was attracted to her looks and sense of fashion.
Her beauty was something that Elle could never compare to regardless of how many skin-tight dresses she wore.
However, Jordan wasnt there to admire how beautiful his ex-wife was.
Thus, he entered the room, closed the door, and then said to her, “Youre here.”
Hailey Camden nodded and said, “Yes.
Steele must be very busy, isnt he I guess he wont be able to meet me soon.
You may sit down and have a chat with me.”
Jordan said with a smile, “Theres nothing for me to chat with you about.”
He then threw the contract onto the table in front of Hailey and said, “Take a look at the contract, and if theres nothing wrong with the terms, you may just sign it.
The sum of 11 million dollars will be disbursed to your companys bank account in three separate transactions within a week.”
Hailey Camden exclaimed in surprise, “Has Mr.
Steele already agreed I thought hed need to find out more about the project before hed be willing to invest money in it!”
Hailey opened the document gleefully, only to see the words “Hailey Residences” printed in capital letters at the top of the first page of the contract!
Hailey exclaimed in astonishment, “Hailey Residences!! How could that be the name”
Hailey was very familiar with the name “Hailey Residences.”
More than six months ago, Jordan decided to name the project “Hailey Residences” because he had come up with the idea of the project for her.
Hence, he, of course, wanted to name the project after her.
Jordan thought then that even if the Camdens opposed him, he would use his own assets to build “Hailey Residences” once his three-year assignment as Haileys live-in husband ended.
Who would have thought that Hailey would cheat on him later on
However, even so, Jordan wanted to retain the name of the project.
Jordan said coldly, “Why Dont you like it”
How could Hailey not like it!!
In the future, the most wealthy families in the city would reside in residential properties named after her.
Shed be incredibly proud of that!
However, when Hailey told her family about the projects name at that time, Diana outright rejected it.
At the same time, Herman said blatantly, “Hailey Camden is not fit to have the project named after her.”
At this moment, Hailey was so elated that she was about to burst into tears of joy.
She stood up and said, “Jordan, you must have begged Mr.
Steele to give the project that name, right You wouldnt… have gotten down on your knees and begged him, would you”
Hailey was deeply moved, and she knew that Jordan had to have had something to do with this because it was impossible the president of Ace Corporation would have heard of the name “Hailey Residences.”
For the first time in these three years, Hailey held Jordans hand and said in a gentle voice, “Thank you, Jordan.”
Jordan had complicated emotions while touching her tender hands.
Its been three years, three years since he married Hailey, but he had never touched her hand before.
After touching her hand for the first time, it surprised him to find out how smooth and tender it was.
However, he pushed her hands away and said, “No, Mr.
Steele just likes the name Hailey a lot, so he decided to use it.”
Seeing that Jordan was in denial, Hailey smiled and insisted, “You must have begged Mr.
Steele desperately before he agreed.
Why do you deny it I know you still love me.”
Not wanting to talk about it anymore, Jordan said, “Cut it out, sign the contract.”
Hailey was also worried that he might go back on his word.
If she succeeded in clinching the contract, her grandmother would be pleased with her.
Hailey signed the contract quickly and stamped it with the official seal of Landmark Realty.
The contract was duplicated, so Jordan grabbed his copy and turned around to leave.
“Wait a minute.” Hailey called out to Jordan, “Im thrilled that you begged Mr.
Steele to use the nameHailey Residences. How about I treat you to lunch today Where would you like to go to eat How about that favorite restaurant of yours… called… what is it Duck and Noodles”
Jordan turned around and said, “No, thank you, Im busy.
I dont have time for lunch with you.
Also, that place is called Chicken and Noodles, not Duck! Weve been there so many times, but you cant even remember the name of the restaurant.
It seems that you didnt love me at all.”
“Nonsense!” Hailey lost her temper again.
“I was nice enough to go to such a horrible place with you so many times! If you dont want to go for lunch, forget it, Ill go for steak with Tyler!”
