Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 853
Luna rolled down the window and glanced indifferently at the man who was standing outside the car. “But I don’t want to talk to you.“
She curled her lips in a smile and looked at him. “Do you want to thank me for giving your beloved Ms. Blake a ride home? You’re welcome, I didn’t do it out of the kindness of my heart, I was worried you would kill me if anything happened to her.“
With that, she yawned. “It’s late now, I need to head home. Mr. Lynch, I hope you and your friend can move your cars, don’t block the way.“
Her cold attitude made the expression on his face turn ugly. He sucked in a deep breath. “Luna, why do you insist on acting like you don’t care? If you were really so ruthless, you wouldn’t switch the alcohol to plain drinks. Since you still care about me, why do you refuse to even talk to me? Besides, I wanted to talk to you about the competition.“
“Do you?“ Luna raised an eyebrow. “But President Lynch, it’s after office hours now. I don’t want to discuss work after hours. As for the drinks, I only knew later on that Bonnie had arranged for someone to change the alcohol. If I knew it from the beginning, I would never make you drink a plain drink, but make you drink real alcohol instead.“
With that, she stared into his eyes with her own pair of ice-cold orbs. “Please don’t misunderstand, I really wanted you dead.“
Her words made Joshua feel as if his heart had dropped into an eternally frozen lake. Since the moment he drank the drinks, he knew she still had lingering feelings for him. It would be a lie if he said the knowledge did not excite him. But since Lucas had brought the medical personnel over, he left went with the flow and left.
After he left the room, the first thing he did was to ask about the ‘alcohol’. The staff members of the hotel said that it was all arranged by Bonnie, they even said she had reminded Luna that the alcohol had been switched to plain drinks. That’s why it was impossible that Luna did not know about this beforehand.
But her gaze and her expression were conveying a clear message to him.
She hated him.
To his guts.
He narrowed his eyes slightly and was about to say something but stopped himself in the end. Finally, he sighed and gestured to Lucas and Jude behind him, asking them to drive their cars away and set her free.
The road was once again blockade-free.
Luna rolled the window up without an ounce of reluctance, closed her eyes, and leaned back on her seat, ordering the driver to resume their journey.
After the car left Orchard Manor, the screen of her phone lighted up. It was a message from Joshua, it only contained two words, ‘Thank you.’
Looking at the two words displayed on the screen,
Luna laughed coldly, then threw her phone onto the seat beside and closed her eyes, once again pretending to be asleep.
But even though her eyes were closed, a tear still made its way down her cheek uncontrollably.
It was not that she did not feel wronged, or that her heart did not ache. But she had no one to pour her grievances out to.
By the time she got home, it was already past 11 p.m. at night, the two kids were fast asleep. First, she stepped into the children’s room and tucked the blankets around them tightly, then read through the nurse practitioner’s notes.
Finally, she took a shower and switched on her laptop, ready to record the progress of today’s work.
Unexpectedly, as soon as the computer was turned on, an unfamiliar email popped up.
The email came from an unfamiliar email address. Its contents were also very brief, with only a single sentence, ‘We’re all fine now, don’t worry.’
Luna furrowed her eyebrows and looked at the line of words, doubts filling her heart. Nigel encrypted her email address; several specific passwords were required before any emails could be sent to her email address.
It was impossible for this to be a simple mistake, what more spam emails such as ad frauds.
Except for fellow classmates or teachers from her days in Europe, the only people who knew her email address were relatives and friends.
Who sent this email to her?
