Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1125
Instantly, it was so quiet that the only sounds that could be heard were the crash of the waves against the shore.
Everyone stared at Luna in shock. No one expected that a perfect birthday celebration would turn out like this…
Nellie stared at the scene in front of her eyes dazedly, nearly bursting into tears of anxiety. Actually, hers and Nigel’s disappearance, and the note, were both her ideas. Daddy actually opposed this idea, saying that Mommy would not like it, that she would be anxious and worried. But she thought this was the best plan. Under her insistence, Daddy finally agreed. And now…Mommy slapped Daddy !
She jogged to Luna’s side anxiously and grabbed her hand. ”Mommy, don’t be mad, actually I came up with this idea, not Daddy ! If you’re mad, just get mad at me. Daddy just wanted you to be happy… ”
But at the moment , anger had overtaken her mind completely. She looked at Nellie who tried her best to shoulder responsibility for this mishap and a sneer appeared on her lips. ”Joshua Lynch, you’re perfect. Now that something bad happened, you ask Nellie to take the blame for you? Your shamelessness knows no bounds! “
With that, she put down the flowers in her arms and swept her eyes coldly at the crowd in front of her. ” Have fun celebrating my birthday. ” Leaving these words behind, she turned and left. The sounds of Nellie’s cries and the discussion of the crowd tang out from behind her.
She strode forward, not pausing for a single moment. Unconsciously, tears flowed down her cheeks. Joshua knew she did not like jokes like this, but still insisted on using the children and playing a prank on her, on her birthday nonetheless!
She also knew that everyone thought she was being an ungrateful wench, causing a fuss out of nothing. It was just a joke centered around the children’s disappearance.
Yes, to someone else, it was just a joke. The despair, helplessness, and fear she felt for nearly an hour… was all a joke!
Leaving the beach, she walked along the seaside road in the direction of the city. The noise from the beach drifted further and further away behind her until nothing could be heard anymore. All that was left of the wail of the wind in her ears.
At that moment, Luna’s cell phone rang. It was a call from Anne. Luna frowned and recalled the scene where Anne stood behind Joshua, happily singing the happy birthday song. Her heart squeezed in pain and she ended the call without answering.
Immediately, her phone rang again. It was a call from Bonnie. Once again, she ended the call. It rang, and she ended the call once more. Finally, when she was about to switch off her phone in annoyance, it rang again. This time, it was a call from Christian.
Luna paused and remembered that Christian was not among the crowd on the beach just now. She sucked In a deep breath and answered.
“Happy birthday.” On the other end of the phone, he lifted his lips and laughed, “I wanted to tell you a few days ago, but I forgot. My flight is leaving tonight, I need to return home. The court order is out, I have to go home and prepare for it.”
Christian’s tone was casual. “Initially, I wanted you to come and send me off if you had the time. But I heard tonight is your birthday and Joshua organized a party for you, so I gave up. This call is goodbye, I guess.”
Luna pursed her lips. “How much longer till your flight leaves?”
Christian glanced at the time.
