Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1487
Luna’s heart leaped when she heard this.
She pursed her lips and withdrew her hand from Malcolm’s grasp. “Malcolm, I already owe you too much. I don’t want to be indebted to you any further.“
Besides, she already had the feeling that Malcolm was different from the past. Even though he had come to Landry Mansion to help her, but…
That night, backstage, he had wanted Charles to persuade Luna into marrying him.
Furthermore, Malcolm rushed over as soon as he heard that she was pregnant.
Luna could not help feeling uncomfortable about this, but she could not seem to put her finger on what was strange about Malcolm’s behavior.
“Luna.“ Malcolm let out a sigh and grabbed hold of Luna’s hand once more. “You promised me that you’d marry me no matter what. I know it might be unacceptable for you that I wanted you to announce our engagement at the same time that you’re announcing your return to the Landry family, but it’s different now. You wouldn’t want…“
He let out a sigh and continued, “You wouldn’t want something terrible to happen to your unborn baby, would you?“
Luna could not help frowning when she heard this. “ Something terrible?“
“Yes.“ Malcolm sighed again. “You know that the Lynch and Landry families have been nemeses for more than twenty years now.
“Your father didn’t manage to protect Lucy Hamilton, so much so that when she died, her entire corpse was mutilated.
“On the other hand, because of this, the Lynch family killed your father’s brother, Colin, and his body was so disfigured that there was only a leg left.
“None of these pieces of vengeance can be resolved by one person, much less you. Your decision to not bring Nigel, Neil, and Nellie along with you was a right one, but…“
His gaze fell on Luna’s flat belly and continued, “If Charles found out that this child belongs to Joshua… Even if he couldn’t force you to swallow the pill, he’d still think of other ways to stop you from giving birth to this child.
“After all, it’s very common for pregnant ladies to get into accidents or suffer a miscarriage from
eating something suspicious…isn’t it?“
Luna’s heart leaped into her throat upon hearing this. She pursed her lips and clenched her fists next to her.
Malcolm was right.
If a pregnant lady suffered an accidental miscarriage..there was no one to blame for it, was there?
Seeing that Luna seemed to be wavering, Malcolm sighed and continued in a calm tone, “However, if everyone thinks that this child belongs to you and me, then this would be a different story.
“I’m the savior that saved your mother and the Landry family. Because of this, they’ll try their best to protect this child in your belly.“
Malcolm heaved another deep sigh and fixated his gentle gaze on Luna’s face. “I know you don’t want to get engaged to me so quickly…but Luna, I know what kind of person you are. You were willing to go through so much pain for Nigel, Neil, and Nellie…
“This time, you just have to push through and admit that we’re in a relationship for this child. Are you still going to refuse?“
Luna closed her eyes as she tried to make sense of the feelings in her heart.
She knew that Malcolm was right. This was her only choice.
She was in Merchant City and living with the Landry family, so she could not leave here easily, and the Landry family would not let her go so easily either.
If something terrible, like what Malcolm had described, indeed happened…
Luna fell into silence for a long moment, weighing her options, before finally opening her eyes.
