Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1422
“Ms. Luna.“ One of the servants knocked on her door, entered the room, and handed her the recording device Joshua had been holding before he left.
Luna furrowed her brows and turned it on.
The audio clip of Joshua’s recording when he was sitting on the bench started to play. “The first thing I did when I woke up was to come to find me.
“Everyone out there is under orders to kill me, so it wasn’t easy trying to see you.
“I’ll come and see you every day until one day, you decide to come out and talk to me.
“If one day, I don’t show up, then it’s probably because I was killed on the way here.“
Luna rubbed her brows in exasperation when she heard this.
Under orders to kill him?
This man was willing to fabricate anything just to see her.
The only enemies he could have in Merchant City were the Landry and Quinn families. However, she had seen Jim, the master of the Landry family, talking to him when they left, so the Landry family could not be after him at all.
As for the Quinn family, after deciding to postpone the engagement, Luna had gotten in touch with Malcolm through video call.
During the call, not only was Malcolm supportive of her decision, but he even kept apologizing to her about what happened during the engagement party and said that he was willing to wait for her for as long as it took.
On top of that…Malcolm had even suggested helping her track down Joshua so that the three of them could talk about this over dinner to prevent a similar incident from happening again in the future.
Neither the Landry nor Quinn families were out to get Joshua.
Luna could not think of anyone else who would send assassinators out to kill Joshua in Merchant City.
“I think his apology was quite sincere. Maybe he’s just lying about being wanted so that you’d worry about him.“ Bonnie noticed how distracted Luna seemed during dinner and pursed her lips in disapproval. “I think it’s fine to use little tricks like this, so why are you so unwilling to let him off the hook for this?“
Luna pursed her lips and shook her head.
To her, this was not a small matter. She could not believe that Joshua was still unwilling to be honest with her at a time like this and instead used lies like this to attempt to coax her.
What did she mean to him?
First, he placed his vengeance at a higher priority than her; then, he showed up at the engagement party and humiliated her; now, he was playing tricks like this…
Luna could not help feeling a little drained by this. When was this man going to realize what she truly cared about?
Bonnie pursed her lips but did not reply.
As usual, Luna went into the garden for a stroll after dinner.
Even though the baby in her belly was only a month old, Luna still could not help feeling that it would be healthier than its brothers and sister.
Maybe it was because the baby had survived such a traumatic event.
When she was pregnant with Nigel, Neil, and Nellie, her physical health had been at its worst, which was all apart from Neil, the rest of her children had weak bodies as well.
This time, no matter what, she would take care of herself so that this baby would not have to suffer what his siblings went through.
After returning from her walk, Luna laid back down on her bed and was about to rest when she received a message from Malcolm.
He had sent her a picture of a jade ring along with a message that read, (Luna, after such a long search, I finally found the ring.
(Shall we meet up for a chat, or do you want me to find you?)
