Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 959
Luna snorted in indignation, then turned around, intending to leave.
Seeing that she was about to leave, Joshua furrowed his brows and grabbed her wrist. “Where are you going?“
“I don’t have anything to talk to Ms. Blake about, “ replied Luna as she flung Joshua’s hand away. “At first, I didn’t understand why you, the most powerful man in Banyan City, couldn’t seem to find anyone else to donate blood to your precious Ms. Blake, apart from Nigel.
“But I understand now. The reason you wanted no one else apart from Nigel is simply that he’s my son, right?“
Luna’s icy tone felt like a sharp blade against Joshua’s heart. “The reason Fiona got into the accident was that you had a fight. That’s why you’re trying to get on her good side now. You forced my son to donate blood to her because you want her to think you don’t care about anyone else except her, don’t you?
“Joshua Lynch, you have no right to be a man, much less a father! “
As soon as he heard this, Joshua’s expression darkened. Despite that, however, he did not try to explain anything to Luna. “If that’s what you think, then there’s no point changing your mind.“
“Joshua,“ All of a sudden, Fiona’s feeble voice rang out from behind them. Her voice sounded so weak that it felt as though her airway would collapse at any moment. ”Can you help me buy some fruits?
Nigel will need to replenish his vitamins after the transfusion later.”
Fiona’s voice sounded so close to them that Luna could not help frowning. As soon as she lif ted her head, she caught sight of Fiona standing at the door, looking so weak and frail that the wind might just blow her away.
Joshua, too, turned around. As soon as he saw Fiona, he immediately frowned and lunged over to prop her up. ”What are you doing out here?”
”I … ” Fiona bit down on her lip and answered in a feeble, pitiful voice, ”I heard you arguing with Luna
She’s misunderstood you, but you didn’t even try to explain yourself. I was so upset to hear this that I… ”
”Go back into your room.” Joshua frowned upon hearing this. Then, he picked Fiona up and set her down gently on her hospital bed. ”Get as much rest as you need. The blood supply is on its way, so you’ll feel better soon. Don’t run around.”
Fiona bit down on her lip and nodded obediently. ” Alright. I’ll obey your commands.”
With that, she even snuck a triumphant glance at Luna—who stood outside the door—while Joshua was not looking.
Luna narrowed her eyes and sneered upon seeing this.
Suddenly, Joshua strode out of the room and said, ” Since Fiona wants to talk to you, you should just sit there and talk to her for a while. I’m going to buy some fruits for Nigel.“
With that, he shoved Luna into the room and shut the door behind her.
The room was pin-drop silent.
Luna stood by the door while Fiona leaned against the headboard. The two locked eyes with each other but did not say a word.
After hearing Joshua’s footsteps grow further and further away until they disappeared, Fiona curled her lips into a smirk and said, “I didn’t think you’d come.“
Luna sneered. “Joshua was even willing to kidnap his own son so that he could donate blood to you. How can I not come along?“
Fiona smirked and lowered her head to toy with a few tendrils of her own hair. The sickly look on her face had disappeared entirely and was replaced with one of conceit and serpent-like slyness.
She let out a sigh and said, “Actually, I’ve told him since the start that even though Nigel’s blood type is compatible with mine, it’s still not a good idea to use a child’s blood. Who knows what’ll happen if I get transfused with his blood? Maybe somehow, he inherited your misery, and his blood will cause me to have a bad reaction.“
She continued with a chuckle, “But Joshua told me that it’s fine. Even though Nigel is your son, he’s Joshua’s, too. Since he couldn’t transfuse his blood into my body, as long as Nigel could, he’d bring him to the hospital and let him donate blood to me.
“He even told me that since Nigel is his son, I should think of it as Joshua himself transfusing blood into me and asked me not to stay mad at him anymore.”
With that, Fiona lifted her head and shot Luna a somewhat helpless smile. “Don’t you think he’s childish?”
Luna clenched her fists upon hearing this. It turned out she was right.
The reason Joshua had wanted Nigel to donate blood was so he could get on Fiona’s good side!
Seeing that Luna had bought her story, Fiona felt even more triumphant.
