Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 849
The moment the words left her mouth, the air in the room froze. Everyone held their breaths and carefully studied both Luna and Joshua.
Even though Joshua’s insistence on placing Fiona in the team was unacceptable. But… Saying things like these in front of Joshua and Fiona, was Luna not afraid of angering him?
Shannon bit her lip and instinctively tugged at Luna’s sleeve, signaling her to stop talking.
However, Luna shrugged her hand off, as if she did not understand her hidden message.
She raised her eyes and looked at Joshua with cold, emotionless eyes, spitting the words out word by word. “You weren’t like this before. When will you stop?”
In the past, whether it was Aura Gibson or Alice Gibson, no matter how much he loved and spoiled them, he would never joke around when it involved business and the company. He could only grow the Lynch Group to its current size and scale because he always drew a clear line between work and pleasure, and was fair and impartial in everything.
But since he got involved with Fiona, all of these disappeared. He arranged for Fiona, who had no pre- existing skills or design -related experience to join the design department and even wanted to fire some of their outstanding employees, all for her. Now, he even wanted Fiona to join the team that would represent the Lynch Group in an international competition.
How many more outrageous things could he do for this woman?
At Luna’s words, Joshua’s eyes narrowed slightly. Unlike what Shannon and the rest imagined, he did not explode with fury, but merely looked at Luna with indifferent eyes, his voice equally as cool and calm as his eyes. “This should be the last time before you leave Banyan City.“
Luna bit her lip. After a long while, she took a deep breath. “Alright, then. I agree.“
Joshua was right. She could just regard her team as a nine-man team. Without Shannon, she would be exhausted. After all, after this competition, she would most probably be able to fulfill her side of the agreement with Joshua and leave this troubled land together with her children.
She would regard this as her final test before leaving the city. She had participated in many similar competitions before, they were not difficult, she was confident she could handle this one with ease.
“But Mr. Lynch, I have a condition.“ “What condition?“
Luna smiled and pushed the glasses of wine that she had prepared during their previous conversation in front of him. “I’ll agree, as long as you empty these glasses.“
There were eight glasses on the table. They were all filled with different kinds of alcohol.
From her position in his arms, Fiona’s eyes widened in shock. “Luna! This is murder! “
Just a week ago, Joshua had been unconscious for three days because of stomach complications that arose from drinking. And now she wanted him to drink so much?
“You don’t dare?“
Luna raised her eyes and stared at him coldly. “I thought you would do anything for Ms. Blake?”
He looked at the woman in front of him with a myriad of emotions in his eyes, a cold smile rose on his lips as he said, “You know what happens after I drink, right?”
Luna curled her lips. “I care for you in the hospital for three days, do you think I wouldn’t know?“
She did it on purpose. She wanted to see how far he would go for Fiona.
Looking at her, he smiled. “I’ll drink.“
She saved his life. Now that she wanted it back, how could he say no?
With that, he lifted the glass.
Fiona tugged at his arm, tears swimming in her eyes as she pleaded, “Don’t drink! “
Her tears flowed down her cheeks like two gushing streams of water. “Your body is already in very poor condition; you can’t drink anymore! For the past week, no one dared to make you drink, no matter how important that partner was! ”
As she spoke, she raised her head and glared at Luna, her eyes red as she hissed, ”Ms. Luna, no matter how badly you want to stop me from joining your team, you don’t have to joke with Joshua’s life?”
