Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1069
Luna curled her lips into a smirk as she stared at Joshua. “Alright.“
She no longer had the energy to argue with him, so she decided to relent and instead smiled at him. “I believe you, but just this once. As soon as everything is settled, you’ll bring Nellie and Nigel back and allow me to take them away from Banyan City, right?“
Joshua’s heart leaped into his chest. After a moment, however, he curled his lips into a smile and replied, “ I will.“
He had never wanted to convince Luna to stay. After all, he was the one who had caused the death of both Neil and the unborn baby in Luna’s womb. He had no right to ask her and the children to stay by his side.
Therefore, even though he knew Luna did not truly trust him and was instead just saying it for his sake, Joshua was still willing to tell her the truth.
Luna, on the other hand, was surprised by his answer. She thought that he would find an excuse to change the topic, but this was good, too.
Luna’s expression darkened as she said, “Alright, Mr. Lynch. Please remember everything you told me today.“
With that, she strode into Nigel and Nellie’s room, slamming the door behind her. “I ‘ll be sleeping in the children’s room tonight. Please help yourself, Mr. Lynch.“
Seeing that she had already slammed the door in his face, Joshua had no choice but to shake his head and turn around to leave.
The night passed by peacefully.
The next morning, Joshua and Luna arrived at the mental asylum.
Seeing that Joshua had brought Luna along with him, Mr. Chase thought Joshua still wanted Luna to be locked up. Therefore, as soon as the two stepped through the door, Mr. Chase’s expression darkened, and he immediately ordered, “Lock her up right this instant! “
The guards immediately rushed forward, but Joshua stopped them. He narrowed his eyes and pulled Luna closer to him. “Who dares to touch her?“
Mr. Chase was a little surprised by this sudden turn of events. “Mr. Lynch?“
“We’re here today to bail the woman inside Luna’s ward out. “ Joshua gave Mr. Chase a once-over and added, “By the way, about Luna’s finger… I want to talk to you about this, Mr. Chase.“
The color drained from Mr. Chase’s face upon hearing this. He first glanced at Joshua in shock,
then at Luna with a pleading expression. “Didn’t you..break your finger yourself?“
Luna furrowed her brows but did not reply.
Joshua let out a snicker when he heard this. “Since you think that a person is somehow capable of breaking their own finger, Mr. Chase, why don’t you show me how to do it? On top of that, I want you to show me how to not only break your finger but crush all the bones within.“
While Joshua was busy chewing Mr. Chase out, Luna managed to retrace her steps and found the ward where Janice was locked.
Inside the ward, Janice was sitting in silence, looking graceful and tranquil.
As soon as she saw Luna arrive, Janice curled her lips into a faint smile and asked, “Have you been recaptured again, or are you here to bail me out?“
Luna sniffed, then sat down in front of her. “I’m here to bail you out.“ She lowered her gaze and continued, “I was in too much of a hurry that night and didn’t know that the person who would be taking my place was you… If I had known— “
“If you had known, I would’ve ordered them to knock you out, then continue to take your place anyway,“ Janice interjected with a serene smile, looking calm and at ease with her decision. “Luna, I volunteered to take your place in the mental asylum. I owe you this much.“
Luna pursed her lips, then gently gripped Janice’s hands. “Please don’t say that, Aunty Janice. You don’t owe anyone anything.“
Luna knew that this had all been part of Dr. Robert and Fiona’s plan and that Janice had nothing to do with this.
“You’re wrong.“ Janice let out a sigh and closed her eyes. “If I had been able to expose Robert for what he really is when Violet and Shaun got into their accidents, your entire family won’t have to suffer like this. He’s a cruel, heartless man, and he doesn’t deserve to be a doctor.”
As soon as she heard this, Luna’s entire body stiffened. She bit down on her lip. ”So, Aunty Janice.”
