Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 2397 by desirenovel
“No.” Joshua sighed. “However, we managed to find out a lot of information about that assistant of Luke’s.
“Her name is Kate Miller, and she’s from a rich and powerful family in Europa. The power and influence of her family are not to be underestimated.
“Luke had secretly taken her in when she arrived here, but despite that, she’s still required to call her family every day to confirm her safety. If her family doesn’t receive any information about her within these two days, they’ll do anything to find her.
“If her family were to come over to Merchant City in a rage, not only would Luke be in trouble, but the entire Merchant City would be affected, too.”
Luna furrowed her brows upon hearing this. “Is it that serious?”
“Yes.” Joshua sighed. “It’s the same as… If Nellie was to go to a foreign city after she grows up and ends up going missing there, but all data shows that she had never left that city, I, too, would flip the entire city upside down in search of her.”
Luna fell silent for a moment before saying, “But why didn’t you do this when our second daughter went missing?”
Not only was Joshua shocked by this question, but even Luna herself seemed to be momentarily stunned. A split second later, she sighed and added, “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have compared this to that.”
However, Joshua did not appear to be angry at all. He fell silent for a moment before finally replying patiently, “The reason I never turned the entire city upside down in search of her…
“You and I had both thought she died as soon as she was born, and we had even buried her together, hadn’t we?”
Luna closed her eyes. “That’s right.”
“Even after we found out that she was still alive, we were led to believe that Riley was our daughter, weren’t we?”
Luna’s hands began to tremble. “That’s right, too.”
“Finally, we have no idea-even until now-whether the child is still alive or not, much less her whereabouts. Perhaps she could be dead, or maybe she could’ve been taken out of Merchant City already.
“My point is, there are too many uncertainties to this question, and if I choose to flip the entire city upside down to search for her, what would people think of us?
“What will people think of us, the Landry and Lynch families, if our search efforts turned out to be futile despite wrecking the entire city in the process?”
The quiet rage in Joshua’s voice made Luna silent for a long time.
“I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said that in the first place.” With that, she let out a sigh and hung up.
She knew that Joshua was right.
He was always capable of staying calm and level-headed no matter the situation, whereas she could not.
“Mommy,” Nellie’s voice rang out.
Luna opened her eyes, glanced out the window, and realized that they had arrived at Bamboo House.
As soon as they got out of the car, Joey went up to them like an obedient dog. “Master Moon! Princess Nellie! You two are right on time-Mr. Thomas has just arrived, too!”
As he said this, he led Luna and Nellie into a private booth in the restaurant.
“Is this your daughter?” a man’s low, melodic voice rang out as soon as they entered the door. “How adorable. I wish my daughter were this cute, too.”
