Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1428
Jim sat down next to Bonnie and pressed her head down onto his shoulder, then quickly snapped a few photos on his phone.
Bonnie sensed the unfamiliar scent of male pheromones wafting off Jim’s body, and it felt as though she had been electrocuted.
She removed herself from his arms and, out of instinct, extended her arm out and brought her palm down toward Jim’s face—
However, Jim grabbed hold of her arm mid —air. He curled his lips into a smirk and dangled his phone in front of her. “Didn’t I tell you yesterday that Malcolm sent away all the men who have been following you and me? Do you know why?“
Bonnie furrowed her brows, her arm still hovering mid-air. She wanted to smack him, but Jim was resisting her, yet at the same time, she could not pull her arm back either.
She glared at him somewhat awkwardly and snapped, “What do Malcolm’s actions have anything to do with you sexually harassing me?“
“You call this harassment?“ Jim curled his lips into a smirk and pressed Bonnie down against the sofa.
He restrained her arms above her head, and her body was pressed so hard against the sofa that she could not move an inch.
Jim hovered closer to her ear and chuckled. “This is what I call harassment.“
The warmth of his body, as well as the tickling sensation of his breath, made Bonnie feel suffocated.
Jim watched her face blush scarlet, curled his lips into a smirk, and inched closer to her ear. “Don’t worry, Ms. Craig, I’m not interested in you at all.
“The only reason I took those photos with you was so that Malcolm would think I was really trying to woo you.
“If it weren’t for the fact that we have to cover up Joshua and Luna’s tracks, I won’t be willing to put on such a show with you either. Do you understand? “
He released Bonnie and stood up, then readjusted his collar. “Well, since I’ve gotten the photos I want, I’ll see you tomorrow.“
With that, he strode out of the room without looking back.
Bonnie was both embarrassed and exasperated by this. She grabbed one of her cushions from her sofa and flung it in Jim’s direction. “Get out of here— ! “
Because Malcolm’s men had loosened their watch on Jim and Bonnie, Joshua could finally stay longer at Tea Cottage. He lingered for almost an entire day.
On the first day, Luna thought his presence was more than annoying.
On the second day, she got somewhat used to him being there.
On the third day, the first thing she did upon waking up was check whether Joshua had arrived yet.
As soon as she flung the curtains open, she saw him standing downstairs in the autumn breeze in a khaki sweater.
She could not help feeling a surge of warmth spread through her body at this sight.
She told herself that if he could do this for seven days..she would go down and talk to him.
Luna counted the days off her fingers and could not help feeling that seven days would be too long and that Joshua would not be able to last this long.
However, on second thought…
The pain she had suffered for him was seven years. If he thought that seven days was too much for him to handle, then it meant that he really did not cherish her at all!
Luna let out a sigh and gently stroked her flat belly. “ Baby, even if it’s for your sake…I’ll still make him wait seven days.“
As soon as she finished her sentence, her phone rang. It was a call from Malcolm.
“Luna, please don’t forget our meeting tonight. I’ll be waiting for you at Lucky Den tonight at 7 P.M., and I’ll bring the jade ring with me.“
Luna pursed her lips and glanced at the man waiting outside. “Alright, I’ll be there.“
Since the jade ring was something that Lucy had left for the Lynch family…
She had to get it back and return it to Joshua.
Not only was this for his sake, but also Granny Lynch’s.
