Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1309
Inside the hospital room.
Luna bit down on her lip and stared at a white- haired Granny Lynch with a pained expression. “ Granny…“ she said in a hoarse voice. “Why did you…“
Granny feigned nonchalance and reached out her hand to stroke Nellie’s head, then squeezed Neil’s hand reassuringly. “I’ve already told you; Celia was right. I don’t have much time left, so I’m glad that I get to do something good for my great- grandchildren.“
Luna’s eyes were red -rimmed. “But Granny, Joshua and I went to so much trouble to obtain the antidote and cure you. You’re the only elder that Joshua respects, and you’re the only family member that not just him, but the children and I cherish…“
She sniffed and continued in a choked voice, “Nellie is still young; she still has such a long way to go. I highly doubt that the poison within her body will never be able to get neutralized. We’ll eventually
find a way to save her, but you…“
Granny Lynch was more than 7o years old. When Luna first got in touch with Dr. Janet, she had mentioned that Granny Lynch’s organs were so damaged from the poison that if she did not receive the antidote soon, her organs would erode and die.
If that happened, Granny would only have days to live.
This was why Luna had been desperate to get her hands on Aura’s antidote and was even willing to let Dr. Janet administer a similar poison into her body just to fool Aura…
“I ‘m fine.“ Granny let out a sigh as she closed her eyes. “I’m already so old now; there’s no point living a few more years anymore.“
With that, she reached out a hand to stroke Nellie’s hair. “As long as she’s fine, I can rest in peace.“
“Great-Granny.“ Nellie sobbed so hard that her eyes were red and swollen. “I don’t want you to die. I don’t want you to leave.
“You haven’t even had the chance to see me win an international prize yet, and I haven’t had the chance to make you a piece of jewelry that you like. I haven’t…”
Nellie had so much more to tell Granny Lynch, but she was sobbing so hard that she could not say a single word.
Luna could not help but feel saddened by the scene before her. She turned to glance at Joshua, who was standing behind her.
His face was expressionless, but Luna could still tell that he, too, was saddened, by the look in his eyes.
She knew that he was more mournful than her, but because he was too used to hiding his emotions, he did not know how to express them anymore.
Luna reached out to grab hold of Joshua’s hand. His hand was as cold as ice.
Granny Lynch could not bear to see Nellie crying any longer, so she let out a sigh and pressed a kiss on Nellie’s head. Then, she lifted her head to stare at Luna. “Luna, please take the children out. I have something to say to Joshua.“
Luna nodded, then walked over and picked up a crying Nellie.
Nigel obediently walked over to Neil’s wheelchair and pushed him out of the room alongside Luna.
Together, the four of them left the room.
Joshua closed the door behind them, then turned and sat down next to Granny Lynch’s bed. He grabbed hold of Granny’s hand and said, “Granny.“
His voice was so low and hoarse that it was hard to hear him.
“Joshua, my dear.“ Granny Lynch gripped his hand tightly. “I don’t have much time left.“
Joshua’s expression darkened upon hearing this. He clutched her hand tightly and said in a low voice, “No. That’s impossible. I saved you from the brink of death when I was seventeen; I can do it again.“
Granny Lynch waved her hand dismissively and chuckled. “That’s different. At that time, I was still young and healthy, so my body could withstand the poison.“
