Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 2084
Sirius was dead?
Both Luna and Joshua froze when they heard this. The two of them exchanged looks of disbelief.
How could this be?
If Sirius had died more than 20 years ago, how could Charlotte, who was only in her early twenties, have found out about everything that happened between Sirius and Todd and even use this to threaten him?
There was no way to explain this at all!
Charles sighed when he saw the shocked looks on Luna and Joshua’s faces. “Sirius has indeed died twenty years ago; I was the one who buried him.
“Sirius was a kind and soft child, and he had always treated Rosalyn like his sister. Every time he found something good, he’d always share it with Rosalyn. Not only that…”
Charles let out another sigh. “When I accidentally mistook Rosalyn for Lucy in my drunken state many years ago and slept with her… Sirius was the first to beat me up for it.”
Charles was a little sheepish to bring up the memories of this incident. “I admit that I was in the wrong for what happened, but I never thought Sirius would be so angry as to beat me up as soon as he saw me. That was the first time I had ever been on the receiving end of a punch.”
Luna could not help recalling the videos she had seen.
From the videos embedded within the chip Samuel had given her, Sirius had claimed that Lucy was the reason Charles had abandoned Rosalyn.
Because of this, he would not allow anyone to hurt Rosalyn because she was the kindest soul he knew.
The video, as well as Charles’ account of what happened all those years before, made Luna’s hairs stand on end.
It seemed that this man named Sirius…had taken a liking to Rosalyn that bordered on the edge of obsession.
Rosalyn could not help smiling when she heard Charles reminiscing about what had happened. “That was your fault.”
Charles was not ashamed to admit the truth at all. “You’re right: it was all my fault. That’s why I didn’t hold it against him even though he beat me up.
“Not only that, but when Sirius died in the fire, I was the one who stormed into the burning building to drag his charred corpse out and bury him.”
“Sirius died in a fire?”
“Yes.” Charles nodded. “Many years ago, Sirius had a falling-out with Rosalyn’s teacher, so he was kicked out and forced to come to Merchant City to stay with Rosalyn and me.
“At that time, we invited him to live with us at Landry Mansion, but he refused, insisting that he didn’t want to inconvenience us, and instead rented a house of his own.
“However, his building caught on fire after that, and he died in the fire.”
Charles could not help lamenting as he recalled this incident, “If Sirius hadn’t died, he would’ve become a master alchemist by now, like Rosalyn.”
Rosalyn, too, could not help feeling a little saddened by this. “You’re right. Sirius was a brilliant man; I would say his only weakness is his obsessive-compulsiveness…”
Then, she turned to glance at Joshua and Luna. “By the way, you still haven’t told us why you’re looking for Sirius.”
Luna and Joshua exchanged a glance, not knowing how to answer.
Initially, after finding out some more information about Sirius, Joshua had intended to show the videos to Charles and Rosalyn so that they could see for themselves what kind of person Sirius had been, but… Both Charles and
insisted that Sirius had been dead for more than 20 years.
