Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1065
As soon as he hung up, his phone rang with another call.
It was from Granny Lynch.
Joshua knew perfectly who it was that was calling him. He let out a sigh and picked up the phone.
“Mr. Lynch, “ Nigel’s cold voice rang out from the other end of the line. “I heard you went to Sea City. Have you found my Mommy?“
Joshua’s eyes narrowed slightly.
He had confiscated all of Nigel and Nellie’s devices last night and asked Granny Lynch to take them to the family villa at a rural village to lay low for the time being.
The village did not have strong network coverage, so the residents could not frequently communicate with the outside world.
Despite this, Nigel still found out that Joshua had gone to Sea City in search of Luna and even managed to find a way to contact him.
Seeing that Joshua did not answer, Nigel pursed his lips slightly and said, “Mr. Lynch, I know the signal isn’t good here, but I’ve added a signal booster and got on the neighbors’ good sides so I can connect to their phone networks… Don’t try to pretend as though the connection isn’t stable so you can avoid my question. How’s my Mommy doing?“
Joshua knew he was caught, so he let out a sigh and answered, “She’s… fine.”
“Don’t make things difficult for her.” Nigel let out an exhale and continued earnestly, “I was the one who devised the breakout. I was the one who kidnapped Janice and contacted both Aunt Gwen and Uncle Luke.”
“Please don’t punish Mommy for this. If you want someone to take the blame for this, then I’m the one you should punish.”
Joshua’s breath caught in his throat. Then, after a moment, he curled his lips into a smirk and said, sounding somewhat helpless, “Do you really think your father is such a bad, unforgiving person?”
“I guess you can say that.” Nigel sighed. “To be honest… You’re so different from the father I always imagined, Mr. Lynch.”
Joshua paused upon hearing this. “What kind of father did you always envision to have, then?”
“Well, I always thought my father would believe my Mommy over anyone else and wouldn’t send her into a mental asylum over someone else’s claims.”
Nigel sighed again. “But, since you’ve already found her… Please take good care of her. If you want to blame someone for everything that happened, then it should be me. Goodbye.”
As soon as he finished his sentence, Nigel hung up the phone.
Joshua gripped his phone tightly, then let out a deep exhale.
Did he… make a mistake?
Just as he was mulling over this question, Lucas appeared and rushed over to his side. “Sir, Luna is awake, and she wants to see you.“
Joshua furrowed his brows, then strode in the direction of Luna’s ward.
Inside the white-walled room, Luna leaned against the headboard, looking just as pale as the walls. As soon as she saw Joshua arriving, she lifted her head and fixated her impassive gaze on him. “Bring me back to Banyan City.“
Joshua glanced at the tubes and IV drips that were connected to her body and frowned. “You can’t go back now.“
She at least had to wait until her condition had stabilized. After all, even though Sea City was not far from Banyan City, there was still a distance between them. Moreover, Luna had just come out of surgery, so he was afraid that she would not be able to endure the grueling journey back to Banyan City.
To his surprise, Luna shook her head. “I want to go back.“
