Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1477
“Find an herb, you say?“
Charles looked as though he had heard the most hilarious joke in the world and turned to stare at Joshua with a cold expression. “He injured himself trying to find that dried grass to insult Luna and our family?“
Charles’ wrinkled face was etched with contempt as he continued, “Not only did you defeat us financially and economically, but now you injured yourself trying to humiliate our family. I guess you get an A for effort, Mr. Lynch.
“Now, on top of that, you’re trying to steal our daughter away as soon as you wake up, huh?“
As soon as he heard this, Jude stepped forward in anger and snapped, “Don’t blindly accuse people like this! How could Joshua have ever given you dried grass? He had found the Clinging Root on the side of a cliff after a storm!
“There had been a storm the day before, and he wanted to go in search of the Clinging Root a day later, but because he wanted to cure your wife as soon as possible, he scaled the cliff while the mud was still wet ! Otherwise, he wouldn’t have gotten hurt at all! “
At the start, Jude could not understand why Joshua had fallen off the cliff, considering he was a man of strong physique.
However, he had seen the weather report in Yellowstone Village on the day of Joshua’s accident.
To scale the side of a cliff after a storm was equivalent to challenging death!
It was impossible for Joshua not to know this, but he still did it because of Luna.
Joshua had risked his life to find the Clinging Root to save Luna’s mother.
However, the Landry family had refused to acknowledge this and instead claimed that Joshua had sent them dried grass!
Clap, clap, clap!
Charles sneered and began clapping slowly. “No wonder you’re Joshua Lynch’s friend; you have extraordinary storytelling skills! “
Jude furrowed his brows. “You—“
“That’s enough, “ Luna interjected coldly, just as Jude and Charles had gotten into a heated debate. “ What use is there to argue about this at a time like this?“
With that, she let out an exhale and turned to glance at Joshua. “If your intention was to cause a scene and make my father and me miserable, then congratulations, you’ve achieved your goal, and you should leave now.“
Luna’s voice was as cold as the rain splattering on Joshua’s body. He turned and fixated his penetrating stare on Luna. “I’m here to bring you home.“
Luna suddenly felt like laughing.
She turned and tucked her wet hair behind her ear, then stared at Joshua with an expression so frosty it was as though she was staring at a stranger. “What home? Joshua, it’s not like I never gave you a chance.
“You asked me to wait, and I waited for you for an entire week!
“Not only that, but an hour before the ceremony started, I was even thinking that if you had shown up right that instant, I would go with you in a heartbeat
She fixated her steely gaze on Joshua’s pale face and said, “But now, it’s too late. You missed the timing that I gave you, and because of that, you lost me.“
With that, she strode away, her heels click-clacking in the rain.
Joshua’s entire body stiffened for a moment.
A split second later, he chased after her and grabbed hold of Luna’s arm, pulling her into his embrace.
Their bodies were as cold as the rainwater splattering all over them.
Luna was pressed against Joshua’s body.
As soon as he saw this, Charles grew agitated and was about to rush forward to stop them when Jude and Lucas blocked his way.
Nigel walked over, holding a small umbrella above his head, and stared at Charles’ face. “Seeing that you’re Mommy’s father, I guess I’ll call you Granddad.
“Please stop sabotaging my Mommy and Daddy’s relationship. Even though she’s your daughter, she’s still a human with feelings and emotions, not your toy puppet.”
Nigel’s words were mature and wise.
Charles furrowed his brows and could not help disliking this grandson of his. “Does your world revolve only around Joshua? Do you know the amount of suffering your mother has gone through because of this man?”
“Since that’s what he owes her, he should be the one to make it up to her,” said Neil in a childish voice as he strode over. “Even us, as their children, have no right to interfere in their business, and neither do you.”
Charles glanced at the two young boys before him with a dark expression.
However, he did not struggle to release himself from Jude and Lucas’ grip in the end.
He did not want to appear less wise than two six-year-olds.
