Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1402
Malcolm was already looked down upon ever since his accident. If he got on stage and told everyone that he and Luna did not even date…
What would everyone think of him?
As soon as she thought of this, Luna let out an exhale and gripped the handles of Malcolm’s wheelchair. “Let’s go on stage and say a few words, then.“
After all, she and Malcolm had known each other for six years, so she could still tell them how they met.
Besides, after the engagement party, they would officially become family.
As soon as she thought of this, Luna wheeled Malcolm onto the stage with a smile.
The emcee was delighted to see this, and so was the audience, who began chanting even more.
Malcolm took the microphone from the emcee and said, “Ladies and gentlemen, you’re right; I indeed fell for Luna at first sight.
“Six years ago, my ship was sailing on the ocean when I came across her falling into the water and saved her. From the moment she was brought onto the ship, I knew instantly that I wanted no one else but her.
“She’s the girl that I want to hold in the cup of my palms like a treasure and cherish her forever.
”We’ve been together for six years now. A while ago, my legs were injured in an accident, and I wanted to cancel the engagement so that she could leave me, but she insisted on staying by my side… ” said Malcolm in a low, gentle voice.
The audience could not help murmuring as they listened to the story, ”What a loyal person Ms. Luna is! ”
”They look so perfect together! “
Heather sat in the corner of the room and picked up her cup of coffee. As she sipped her coffee, she glanced at Joshua and said, ”Ms. Luna is such a loyal companion to Master Quinn. She had already planned to settle down with you in Banyan City, Mr. Lynch, but returned to Merchant City as soon as she heard about Master Quinn’s accident… They are truly a match made in heaven ! ”
Joshua narrowed his eyes and turned to shoot Heather an impassive glance. He tapped his fingers on the table gently as he said, ”If I remember correctly, Ms. Heather, you’re not the real daughter of the Landry family, aren’t you? Your parents switched you out with Aura in the past so that you could live a good life with the Landry family… ”
With that, he glanced at Heather’s pale face and continued, ”With that being said, Luna is technically your sister, isn’t she? Not only are you fine with the idea of your sister getting married to a cripple, but now you’ re even looking down on her for it. Is this what the Landry family taught you over the years? ”
As he said this, Joshua gave Heather a once-over. “ Although I must say, you do bear a resemblance to Aura. Could it be that you and Aura are sisters and that Luna is the real heiress of the Landry family instead?”
Heather grew more anxious when she heard this, and a chill went down her spine. She tried to suppress the fear in her heart and observed Joshua’s expression carefully, trying to figure out if he was just testing her…or if he had indeed found out the truth.
Seeing that Heather did not reply, Joshua curled his lips into a smirk. “Am I right?“
Heather froze for a moment, then quickly let out a cough. “What… What on earth are you talking about?
“Aura is the real heiress of the Landry family, and this was all proven with a DNA test.
“Luna is my birth sister… It’s not that I’m fine with her getting married to a cripple; I just—“
Just as she was about to make up an excuse for her behavior, the microphone was shoved into Luna’s hands.
Luna clutched the microphone with sweaty hands. She was not used to lying in front of so many people, but…since Malcolm had already said his piece, she had no choice but to go along with it.
Luna clenched her teeth and let out an exhale. “ Actually…Just like Malcolm, I…fell for him six years ago.“
“Is that so?“ As soon as she finished her sentence, a low, cold voice rang out beneath the stage. Joshua stood up from his seat gracefully and stared at Luna with a frosty expression. ”Can you tell me again, Ms. Luna, when did you fall for Malcolm?”
