Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1378
“Hey, isn’t this the heiress of the Landry family,
“It really is! “
Luna was eating her meal absent -mindedly when she heard the whispers of murmurs of the people around her.
“I heard that Jim Landry had been the one taking care of the Landry family’s affairs, but a while ago, he quit and went traveling with his son. Now that the Landry family has run into trouble like this, Heather has no choice but to take care of it instead.“
“I heard that Ms. Heather found a way to contact Joshua Lynch and make the attacks on the supply chains under the Landry family’s name stop.“
“She’s probably here to see Joshua Lynch, right?“
“Of course. Didn’t you see the news? The Landry family has been reduced to almost nothing. Joshua Lynch isn’t going according to logic at all. He’s using a lot of money without any consideration for the costs, all with the aim of bankrupting the Landry family.“
“Do you think Ms. Heather will be able to convince Joshua to stop?“
“Maybe. Look how beautiful she is; maybe she’ll seduce him…“
Luna turned around and glanced in the direction where the crowd was looking.
A bare -faced woman dressed in a green, flowy dress was walking toward her, escorted by a few tall, burly bodyguards. The woman was tall and slender with an aura of grace and elegance. It was clear she belonged to a wealthy family.
She circled past Luna and Malcolm’s table and turned to sit down in the seat behind Luna.
Her seat was right behind Luna’s. Despite the several dozens of centimeters between them, Luna could still smell the faint scent of gardenia wafting off Heather’s skin.
“Mr. Lynch, I’m already here. When are you arriving?“ Suddenly, a soft, gentle voice rang out from behind Luna.
Luna’s entire body stiffened.
The onlookers were right… Heather was here to meet with Joshua.
“You’re already there?“
“I ‘m in the third table from the left of the second floor. You can come up through the stairs on the left.“ As soon as Heather finished her sentence, the sound of footsteps echoed from the stairs.
Luna and Malcolm exchanged glances, then quickly brought out their menus to cover their faces.
Luna peeked through the gap in the menu and saw Joshua walking gracefully in her direction.
It had been a few days since she last saw him, and he appeared to have lost weight and looked much more exhausted.
She could not help feeling sympathetic for him.
If this had happened in the past, she would have wanted to cook a meal for him, but…
Joshua, too, circled past Luna and Malcolm’s table and sat down across from Heather.
“Ms. Landry, “ began Joshua in a cold voice as soon as he sat down. “There’s no point meeting me here today at all. I’ve already told you what my demands are.
“You have two choices: obey my demands or go bankrupt. You choose.“
Heather curled her lips into a faint smile. “Why do you have to say that, Mr. Lynch?
“Even though the Landry family and the Lynch family have been rivals for many years, that we have done despicable things to you in the past, Aura’s attack on your grandmother wasn’t of our intention at all.
“Since Aura has already paid the price for this, I thought you’d let go of this matter.“
Joshua sneered at Heather. “Don’t you know the real reason why I’m attacking the Landry family, Ms. Landry?“
“Of course, I know the reason.“ Heather curled her lips into a smile. “But Mr. Lynch, I’m curious to know. Aren’t you planning to attack the Quinn family as well besides us?“
Luna, who was listening to this conversation intently, wrung her hands when she heard this.
She paused her breathing and tilted her head to hear Joshua’s answer.
However, Joshua smiled and replied, “My only target for Merchant City is the Landry family. No matter what the Quinn family does, it has nothing to do with me.
“Maybe, after settling everything, I’ll drop them a visit, but as of now, the most important thing to me is you, the Landry family.” Luna felt her heart turn cold when she heard this.
