Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 2005
“Of course you can. This will be our house in the future, so you can renovate it any way you
Charlotte nodded, then strode into the living room. “I want to switch out this sofa to a customized, high-end one. I previously saw one that would be perfect for this space, and it cost 1.8 million dollars. Can I buy that?”
Jim nodded. “Of course you can.”
“The paintings on the wall are too simple; I’m planning to hang up a few paintings from famous artists. I’ll look around to see if there’s any that suits our house, but to match our status, I’ll have to buy ones that cost upward of ten million.
“Also, the curtains and the rugs…”
The numbers that came out of Charlotte’s mouth were each bigger than the last as she rattled off her calculations for the renovation.
Jim listened to her quietly and could not help furrowing his brows.
A split second later, after Charlotte had finished talking, he stared at her and asked, “What if one day I lose all my money and become a broke, homeless man, like the mechanic who works for Joshua now? Will you still be together with me?”
Charlotte froze when she heard this.
A split second later, she let out an awkward smile and replied, “What are you talking about, Jim? Why would you end up like that?
“You’re the master of the Landry family, so how can you even compare yourself to that man?”
Jim narrowed his eyes. “All I’m asking you is if you’ll still marry me if I were him?”
The smile froze on Charlotte’s face.
A moment later, she curled her lips into another smile, walked over to Jim, and snaked her arm around his. “Of course I will. I love you as a person and not just for your money…
“If you think all these items are too expensive and don’t want to pay for them, it’s fine. I…I’m not that materialistic at all.”
After all, one day, all his money will become hers anyway.
Jim glanced at her meaningfully but did not reply. Instead, he turned and walked away.
“Jim!” Charlotte was shocked by this. She quickly chased after him and called out, “I was just
“It’s getting late now, so you’d better get some rest.” Jim strode out of the door without looking back. “I’ve assigned some maids and bodyguards to look after you, so you’ll be safe here.”
Suddenly, he froze in his tracks and added, “As for all the renovation plans you had… We’ll discuss them in the future after Landry Group has gotten back on its feet.”
With that, he disappeared into the night.
Charlotte remained motionless and bit down on her lip as she watched his retreating figure.
Had she…been too impatient?
As soon as she thought of this, Charlotte sighed and returned to the villa. She plopped down on the comfortable sofa and closed her eyes in exasperation.
All the furniture and decoration in this villa were too simple; it was not fit for someone like her at all!
All of a sudden, her phone rang.
It was a call from a number without a name, but she would recognize it anywhere.
She rolled her eyes, and after letting it ring for a long time, she finally picked it up reluctantly and barked, “What?”
“Haven’t I already told you not to use the bombs unless you’re absolutely certain? Joshua’s men are already looking into the source of the bombs, and you—”
“I what?” Charlotte grew even more frustrated at the mention of the bomb. “Sirius, if you still think of me as your daughter, you should be thinking of ways to help me get rid of Jim’s wretched kids instead of lecturing me about it!”
