Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 954
“You haven’t eaten, have you?“
Christian paused, then nodded. He smiled cheekily as he approached them and sat down beside Luna. “ When are you leaving?“ he asked as he ate.
Luna paused. Christian was already the third person to ask her this question today. She furrowed her eyebrows and glanced at him. “Didn’t I tell you that there are still some things I have to take care of? l’ll only leave after they’re done.“
Christian looked startled, then he smiled. “I mean, you can leave now. Bonnie and I can help you with whatever you have to do. What’s so important that you can’t entrust it to us, and insist on leaving here to do it yourself?“
Luna frowned, sweeping her eyes at him guardedly. “ You came all the way here in the morning to tell me this?“
She had already told him that she would leave after a week, after she settled everything that she needed to deal with in Banyan City.
Why would he rush over to her house early in the morning, without even combing his hair, and pressed her to leave?
Somehow, she was reminded of Fiona’s phone call that morning. Fiona did the same thing, asking her when she would leave early in the morning. She even prepared a private jet for her.
At this thought, she could not help but frown. “ Don’t tell me Fiona is threatening you with Violet’s death again and is asking you to press me to leave as soon as possible?“
Seeing as his worries had been exposed, Christian coughed lightly, raised his glass of milk, and took a sip. “No, she didn’t.“
Luna lifted her lips in a smile and did not speak any further. In her eyes, Christian’s denial was no different from admitting the truth.
“Still, Christian…“ Luna lowered her eyes and side – eyed him. “I’m staying in Banyan City because I have matters of my own to attend to, and it has nothing to do with Joshua or Fiona. I can’t leave just because Fiona hates me and wants me gone, or because you were threatened by her.“
If it was something trivial, then fine, she would just forget about it and leave. This, however, was related to Neil and Aura. She could not give up because of Christian.
At the woman’s words, Christian’s complexion turned grey as cement. He pursed his lips, silently downed the glass of milk, then placed the empty glass on the table and said, “Actually…“
He raised his eyes and glanced at Luna. “I know you won’t change your mind because of me, but I want to help you.“
Luna lifted an eyebrow. “Help me?“
“Yes.“ Christian sucked in a deep breath. “I think that no matter what you do, you’ll need some help.
I’m not here to convince you to leave; I came to be of your assistance. If I help you, you can finish the matters you need to deal with her and leave this troubled land. Besides…“
He smiled brightly as he looked at her. “I can also protect you. In case Fiona wants to do something to you that shouldn’t be done, I can help you, too.”
Luna furrowed her eyebrows and glanced at him suspiciously. “Fiona wants to set me up?“
In the face of her sharp and questioning gaze, Christian pursed his lips. A long while later, he sighed deeply and said, “Fiona called me this morning. She wants me to set up an accident for you, Nellie, and Nigel… She thinks you’re staying in the city to try to steal Joshua from her, so…“
Luna paused and was about to say something when her phone rang.
It was from Joshua.
She frowned and answered. “Mr. Lynch.“
“Luna.“ On the other end of the phone, Joshua sucked in a deep breath and said, “Fiona is in trouble.“
