Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 875
Christian was so stunned by Luna’s reply that he did not know how to answer.
“Either way, thank you for your help, but if something like this happens again in the future, you don’t have to help me anymore. I don’t like being kissed in front of so many people, “ said Luna coldly. Then, she strode into her office, slamming the door behind her.
Christian froze for a moment, then let out a sigh of exasperation.
He had to admit he acted too rashly. He could not seem to put his finger on it, but somehow, when he saw how hard Luna struggled to suppress her emotions, he could not help feeling sorry for her.
That was why he had rushed forward and tried to kiss her in front of everyone, without any regard for the consequences his actions might have brought.
As he had regained his composure, he suddenly realized just how inappropriate his actions were.
He contemplated for a moment, then pushed Luna’s door open. “I want to apologize to you.“
Luna, who was busy drawing a sketch, did not even look up from her work. “That’s okay. I know you wanted to help me.“
The more understanding she was, the guiltier Christian felt toward her.
He let out a sigh. “I have to admit I crossed a line just now, but… I was really worried about you. If you need any help in the future, you can always come to me, and I’ll try my best to help you.“
Luna’s hand that held her pencil paused when she heard this. Then, after a moment, she lifted her head to look at him. “Now that you mention it, I do have something you can help me with.“
Christian immediately perked up when he heard this.
“What is it?“
“Since you’ve known Fiona for a long time now, you must know how her condition was like in the past. Do you know what kind of disease she has?“
Luna had wanted to ask this for a long time. She was curious what kind of disease Fiona had that would render her body so weak that she would have to be hospitalized every time she lost control of her emotions.
Even though Fiona had undergone her surgery, her condition did not seem to improve at all. On the contrary, she still appeared weak, as if she would collapse at any moment.
Luna had sent Zayne and Samson to look into this, but they could not find any information about this.
Christian did not expect Luna to ask him this question, so he froze for a moment and then let out an awkward smile. “I don’t know.“
Luna could tell he knew something but did not feel like telling her, so she shrugged and replied, “ Alright then. I don’t have any more questions.“
Even though she and Christian were friends, she did not think they were close enough that he was obliged to tell her the truth about everything.
Christian stood in the doorway and continued to watch Luna work. Just as he was about to say something, however, someone pushed the door open.
It was Arianna, who had helped Charmaine gather her things and escorted her out of the department a while ago.
“Is your friend gone?“ Christian could not help teasing as soon as he saw Arianna entering the room. “You knew Charmaine was trying to cause Luna trouble, yet as Luna’s assistant, you still helped her and even voluntarily escorted her out of the department. What a kind person you are! “
Arianna knew he was being sarcastic, and her face turned a little pale upon hearing this. She bit down on her lip and said, “Charmaine is a nice person, and she helped me a few times in the past… The reason I sent her off is so I can thank her for helping me in the past, and not… I didn’t mean to betray Director Luna…“
Seeing how upset Arianna was by this accusation, Luna furrowed her brows and said, “That’s okay. You did nothing wrong, so you don’t have to explain anything.“
Christian shrugged. He had a feeling that Arianna wanted to talk to Luna in private, so he quickly bade them goodbye and left the room.
As soon as he left, Arianna closed the door tentatively, then strode over to Luna, whispering softly, “Director Luna, Charmaine…told me a secret before she left.”
Luna lifted her head to look at Arianna. “What secret?”
“It’s…” Arianna let out an exhale. “Charmaine told me that Ms. Blake is planning to sabotage your competition. She told Charmaine that as long as she made it onto your team, she’d be able to carry out her plan, so…” Arianna bit down on her lip. “Please be careful and keep your sketches with you all the time.”
