Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1390
Malcolm let out a sigh. His face was obscured in the dim lighting, and Luna could not make out his expression at all.
“Luna, I don’t want to make you uncomfortable. If “ He let out a sigh and continued in a hoarse voice, “If you really can’t give up on Joshua, then I ‘ll let
you go. You don’t have to worry about me at all.“
He wheeled himself to the glass window and stared out into the distance alongside Luna. “I ‘m already in such a bad state; it won’t matter if they treat me worse than this anyway. They won’t really beat me to death as they claim.
“To me, your happiness is what’s most important.“
A twinge of pain shot through Luna’s heart when she heard this. She bit her lip and shook her head. “No. I won’t let you get injured because of me again.“
In the past, Luna did not know why Malcolm had gotten into his accident. However, after hearing what Granny Quinn said yesterday, she finally found out that…
Malcolm had gotten into his accident because he had been trying to escape, all so that the Quinn family would not be able to force her to marry him.
She owed him too much, both from the past and the present.
Therefore, no matter what happened, she could not afford to let Malcolm suffer anymore.
Malcolm let out a sigh. “Luna, I don’t want you to be unhappy.“
Luna paused for a moment, then forced out a smile. “ What makes you think I’m unhappy?
“Tonight…I’ll put on the prettiest dress and become the most beautiful woman in Merchant City. How can I possibly be unhappy?
“Joshua…didn’t even let me wear a dress to our wedding… There’s nothing for me to regret at all.“
Malcolm narrowed his eyes when he saw how forced Luna’s smile looked. A glimmer of malice flashed through his eyes.
After a split second, he held Luna’s hand in his and replied, “You didn’t sleep well last night, and you’ll probably not be able to go to bed early tonight either
“Why don’t you get some rest first? Otherwise, you won’t have the energy to deal with the public tonight.“
Luna paused for a moment, then nodded earnestly. “
Malcolm was right; she needed to get some rest.
After giving Malcolm some words of concern, Luna let out an exhale and entered her room.
Malcolm narrowed his eyes slightly when he heard Luna’s door close behind her. He lifted his head and stared at the dark sky and pouring rain before him; his lips curled into a faint smile.
After a moment, he took out his phone and dialed a number.
A clear woman’s voice rang out from the other end of the line. “The oh-so-busy Master Quinn finally has time to call me, huh?
“You’re getting engaged to Luna tonight, so aren’t you supposed to be enjoying your time with your soon-to-be wife? Why are you calling your ex?“
Malcolm narrowed his eyes slightly and replied in a cold, impassive tone, “Ms. Heather, you and I had canceled our engagement six years ago. Why are you bringing it up now? Have you somehow still haven’t let go of me?“
Heather let out a scornful laugh. “You’re right; it’s already been six years now.
“All those years ago, you insisted on canceling our engagement, and I thought that you had given up on marrying one of the Landry heirs, but to my surprise
“You had turned the real heiress of the Landry family into an entirely different person and kept her by your side all along, waiting for the perfect time to strike.“
Malcolm squinted and changed the topic curtly. “I didn’t call you to talk about this. Jim has returned, so do we have to change our plans for tonight?“
“No need.“ Seeing that Malcolm was unwilling to talk about anything else, Heather, too, cut to the chase. “We should stick to the original plan.“
She icily continued, “Joshua Lynch will surely attend the engagement party tonight. When he’s busy, I ‘ll revive the Landry family, and by then, Charles will definitely make me the new heir of the Landry family.
”When I take over, you and I can finally wipe the entire inheritance clean.”
