Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1399
Luna’s entire body froze when she heard this.
She glanced at the first floor, where Joshua had initially been sitting.
His seat was empty, and only Heather remained. Luna was a little speechless by this.
She smiled and inched closer to Malcolm, massaging his shoulders as she replied, “You thought I went to see Joshua when you just saw that his seat is empty and that I smell like smoke?“
Malcolm narrowed his eyes and said in a cold, sinister tone, “Isn’t that what happened?“
Luna could tell that he was displeased by this. She pursed her lips and replied, “No, it wasn’t. I went to see a friend just now.“
“Male or female?“
“Of course it’s a female friend.“
“Why would you have a female friend in Merchant City who smokes?“
Luna froze. “She’s…not from here.“
“If she’s not from Merchant City, then why would she be invited to my engagement party?“ Malcolm grabbed hold of Luna’s wrist and said coldly, “Luna, you never lied to me before.“
Malcolm’s grip on her wrist was so tight that Luna could not help frowning in pain. She struggled to
release herself from his grip and exclaimed, “ Malcolm, you’re hurting me! “
Malcolm furrowed his brows and paused for a moment, then let go of Luna.
He turned around and saw that Joshua had already returned to his seat next to Heather.
As soon as he saw this, Malcolm let out a sigh of relief.
Luna took a small step back as she rubbed her red, painful wrist. “Malcolm, you—“
When Malcolm grabbed her wrist, why did she somehow get the feeling that…she had never known Malcolm as well as she did?
How could this usually kind, gentle man look so malicious and grab her so tightly all of a sudden?
Malcolm caught sight of the fear in Luna’s eyes. He let out a sigh and wheeled himself over to Luna’s side, then gently wrapped his arms around her waist. “Luna, I’m sorry. I…“
He let out another sigh and said in a slightly upset tone, “I saw Joshua downstairs and was afraid that you’d see him, that you’d abandon me at such an important event…
“I’ve never been able to call you mine, so I was afraid of losing you.“
Hearing the tone in Malcolm’s voice, Luna bit her lip and could not help but be reminded of herself.
She was no different. Because she had never received Joshua’s love and affection, she placed extremely
high importance on it and was afraid of losing him.
Ever since Joshua arrived in Merchant City, Luna finally understood what it was like to lose someone.
As soon as she thought of this, she suddenly understood how Malcolm had felt.
Luna let out a sigh and gently hugged Malcolm’s shoulders. “Don’t worry. I ‘m different; I won’t go back on my word.“
Malcolm narrowed his eyes and gently leaned his head against Luna’s waist, a triumphant smile playing on the edge of his lips.
Heather lifted her head to stare at Malcolm and Luna, who were embracing on the terrace, and could not help smirking as she asked Joshua to look. “Look how sweet they look.“
As she said this, she pretended to look at her phone and added, “Have you and Luna ever been this sweet together, Mr. Lynch?“
Joshua let out a faint smile and replied, “Well, have you and Master Quinn ever been this sweet together after your engagement?
“I heard that when Master Quinn initially got engaged to you, Ms. Heather, he was very much against the idea. After that, he rescued Luna, and you objected to this, which gave him a perfect excuse to cancel the engagement.
“Were you two sweet together? What did you tell him that made him voluntarily cancel the engagement?”
The color drained from Heather’s face when she heard this.
