Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1098
“I’m not your son. My name is Jake Landry! I’m going to kill your son! “
Then, Aura’s twisted smile appeared in front of her face. “How does it feel to see both your sons killing each other like this, Luna? Hahahahaha—! “
“Neil, Nigel— !“
Luna jerked awake from her nightmare, so shocked that she sat up from her bed, sweating profusely.
“Did you have a nightmare?“ A low, male voice rang out from next to her.
Luna froze, then looked in the direction of the voice.
Joshua was sitting next to her bed, smiling at her with a tired expression on his face. “You’ve been asleep for two days now; I thought you’d be asleep for a little longer.“
She stared at Joshua’s face for a few seconds before finally managing to recall what had happened. Then, she let out an exhale and glanced around the room she was in. “Are we…back in Banyan City?“
“Where are Nigel and Nellie?“
“They’re back at Blue Bay Villa, getting their rest.“ Joshua lowered his head and handed her a peeled banana. “They’re perfectly fine, and so are you. The doctor said that you were under tremendous psychological stress and passed out due to physical overexertion. As long as you get your rest, you’ll be fine.“
Luna took the banana from him and pursed her lips slightly. “Then…“
“You want to ask about Fiona?“
Luna nodded as she nibbled on the banana. “Two days after she fell off the cliff, I sent some men to search for her body, but they couldn’t find anything at all. Maybe her corpse was carried off into the woods by some beasts, or maybe we weren’t looking in the right place. The mountainside was too big, and the manpower we had was very limited, so after searching for a few days to no avail, we gave up. Either way, according to experts, it’s highly unlikely that she survived.“
Joshua let out a sigh, then sat quietly as he watched Luna eat.
The look in his eyes was so tender and earnest that Luna could not help but feel uncomfortable.
This was the first time he had ever stared at Luna like this. She did not know what he was trying to do and why he was staring at her like this, but she could not help but feel a little nervous at being stared at like this.
Luna’s face blushed scarlet, and she could not stop herself from turning around and glancing at Joshua. “Can you… Can you go out? I want to have some time to myself.“
Joshua’s entire body stiffened upon hearing this. Then, after a moment, he exhaled and stood up. “
He made his way to the door, then turned around and shot her a somewhat worried glance. “I ‘ll ask Bonnie and Anne to come to look after you.“
With that, he strode out of the room.
Luna pursed her lips. As she watched him leave, she felt as though he looked…a little sad?
At the same time, if he continued to stare at her like this without saying a word, it would make her extremely uncomfortable, especially because she had already made up her mind about drawing clear boundaries with Joshua.
A short while after he left, someone pushed open the door to Luna’s ward once more.
Luna thought that Anne or Bonnie had arrived and immediately lifted her head in delight.
However, the person standing at the door was Christian, his face unshaven and bruised.
“I heard you’re awake.“ He entered the room and smiled at Luna somewhat awkwardly. “I sneaked over to visit you.“
Luna stared at the bruises on his face and asked, “Your face…“
Christian gently touched his wounds, then offered an awkward smile. “I’m fine. I was beaten up by Joshua, that’s all.“
Luna froze upon hearing this. “Joshua? Why did he beat you up?“
Christian heaved a sigh. “Because of you.“
