Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1087
When Luna lifted her head and took in the scene before her, she was so shocked that she almost passed out.
Nigel was tied to a giant rock at the edge of the cliff, his feet bare and his entire body hovering over a seemingly endless drop.
Meanwhile, Fiona leaned gracefully against the rock, her eyebrows raised slightly, a taunting smile playing on her lips.
She was holding a sharp knife in her hand, the light glinting off the blade in the rain.
“I thought you needed more time to catch up with me.“ Fiona sighed and lowered her head to fiddle with the knife. “I was even betting with Nigel on when you’d arrive. For every hour that you’re late, I ‘ll cut off one of the ropes holding him here.“
With that, she turned and counted the number of ropes holding Nigel onto the rock. “Eight ropes. I’ve already cut one off, so there’s only seven left.“
Fiona turned and smiled at Joshua. “Look, Joshua; look how nice I’m treating your son. I prepared eight pieces of rope so that you could see him one last time. One rope for each hour, so eight hours in total. Eight hours is more than enough for you to bid him farewell! “
Luna was so unnerved by the scene before her, as well as how despicable Fiona both looked and sounded, that she almost lost her balance.
She could not fathom how malicious this woman was!
Fiona was insane!
Joshua pulled Luna into his arms and lifted his head to stare at Fiona coldly. “What are you trying to do? “
“Nothing much, just taking his life.“ Fiona curled her lips into a smirk and gazed at Joshua impassively. “You should know better than anyone why I’m taking Nigel’s life, right?“
Joshua’s arm, which was still wrapped around Luna, tightened upon hearing this, and his knuckles turned white.
He knew what Fiona was talking about.
She wanted to kill Nigel because the bone marrow inside him used to belong to her.
Joshua knew that better than anyone else.
He clenched his teeth and continued to stare at Fiona. “Whatever you want, I can give it to you.“
“Is that so?“ Fiona clutched her face with one hand and fixated her calm gaze on Joshua’s face. “That was what you said to me in the past. You told me that you’d be with me until I died. Are you going back on your promise now?“
Joshua suppressed the rage in his heart and replied, “ The reason I made that promise was that I thought you had a fatal illness and had only one year to live.“
Fiona sneered. “Does this mean you’re going to abandon me now that you found out I ‘m not dying anymore? Luna was right, Joshua. You’re a flighty,
irresponsible scumbag. I used to think that if I stayed by your side, I ‘d one day be able to steal your heart, but I now understand how naive I was to think that.“
With that, she fiddled with the knife in her hand and lowered the blade to one of the ropes restraining Nigel—
This scene made Luna anxious. Then, just as Fiona’s blade was about to cut the rope loose, Luna cried out in a shrill voice, “Fiona! If you want to take your revenge, then take it out on me! “
She bit down on her lip, released herself from Joshua’s arms, and fixated her determined gaze on Fiona. “I was the one who tried to expose your lies, and I was the one who tried to collect evidence against you! None of this has anything to do with my son. You…“
Luna glanced at Nigel who, at this moment, was staring down at the endless abyss beneath him, his face pale with terror. Even though he was usually a calm and mature child, at this moment, his face was as pale as a ghost.
After all, he was only six years old. How fearless could he possibly be?
