Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1432
On the other hand, Bonnie, under the suggestion of her three children, had kept a close watch over her and forbade her from seeing anyone from the outside world.
“It’s okay. “ Malcolm did not care about why Luna refused to see him and instead handed her a jewelry box, smiling. “Take a look.“
Joshua and Jim were too far away from their table, so they could not make out the contents of the jewelry box at all.
Harvey propped himself up against the window and whispered, “Wow, is it a wedding ring?“
Joshua furrowed his brows and observed Luna’s expression carefully. “No.“
If it had been a wedding ring, Luna’s expression would not look so serious at all.
Her expression at this moment, however…
She seemed to be carefully eyeing something that she had lost and found to make sure it was the same one she had lost.
Harvey glanced at Joshua. “How do you know it’s not?“
Joshua gently stroked Harvey’s hair and replied, “I just do.“
“It’s because you like her, isn’t it?“
Jim watched the look on Joshua’s face and shook his head helplessly.
He picked up his cup and took a sip of his tea.
He could tell what Bonnie was thinking just from the look on her face. Did this mean he liked her?
Therefore, to determine what one was thinking just from looking at their face…did not require any feelings of love at all.
“Malcolm, I’ve confirmed that this isn’t the ring that I lost.“ Luna closed the jewelry box’s lid and shoved it back to Malcolm. A hint of helplessness passed through her face as she added, “I know you must’ve put in a lot of effort into finding this ring, but this isn’t the one I’m looking for.“
Malcolm feigned shock and widened his eyes. “Isn’t it? My men spent more than ten days searching in the sewers, so how could this…“
Luna pursed her lips when she saw the expression on Malcolm’s face. “Are you sure you spent more than ten days looking for this?“
As a jewelry designer, she had an extremely keen eye for things like this. After observing and feeling the ring in her hands, she could even estimate the date this jade ring was produced.
From her experience, this ring was probably made about three days ago.
Therefore, it was impossible that Malcolm’s men had spent more than ten days looking for this.
As for the fake ring, even though it was a counterfeit, it was still expensive to produce. Even if Malcolm’s men were to make a fake one, they would not be able to afford it.
Therefore, Malcolm must have been the one who ordered this counterfeit ring to trick her.
Because of this, Luna could not help feeling repulsed when she saw the shocked look on Malcolm’s face. She did not know why Malcolm, the man who had always been upfront and honest with her, would use a fake ring to attempt to trick her.
Malcolm furrowed his brows when he heard Luna’s question.
All of a sudden, he recalled that… Luna was a genius jewelry designer.
As soon as he thought of this, Malcolm gripped the box so hard that his knuckles turned white. “Luna, I was just too desperate to see you— “
“Well, you saw me now.“ Luna let out an exhale and fixated her penetrating stare on Malcolm. “I guess you must know that your brother Hunter and the rest of the Quinn family are searching for me, as well as Ms. Heather Landry, although I am unsure of the reason.
“You knew full well how dangerous of a situation I was in, yet you still made a counterfeit ring to trick me into meeting you, all because you wanted to see me.”
Luna stood up and added, “I ‘m not reprimanding you for this, but all I’m thinking is that you’re no longer the Malcolm that I knew, the one who’d put everyone’s needs above his own.
”I’ll be off now. Goodbye.”
