Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 974
With that, Christian let out a yawn and continued, “ Although I must say, Joshua, if anything like this happens again in the future, you shouldn’t follow us all over Banyan City like tonight.
“Although I have ulterior motives for getting close to Luna, I ‘m not here to harm her at all, so you can rest in peace knowing that. On top of that…“
Christian let out a snicker. “You were so harsh and cruel toward Luna yesterday, claiming that she has mental problems and even wanted to admit her into a mental asylum…but you’re acting so thoughtful and caring now, following her everywhere. Aren’t you afraid that Luna will find your behavior repulsive?“
Joshua narrowed his eyes upon hearing this.
Christian had been respectful and polite to him before, but this last statement was clearly a taunt !
Joshua clutched his phone so hard that his knuckles turned white. “I guess you’re not interested in my investment anymore, are you? Well, the Moores don’t need my financial help, then.“
Joshua scoffed and added, “I’ll order Lucas to retrieve my money today.“
As soon as he heard this, Christian’s jeering expression fell. He pursed his lips and said, “Uncle… Uncle Joshua. I was just kidding. Please don’t take me so seriously. Besides, my whole point of calling you was to remind you to drive safely since you’ve been up all night, wasn’t it?“
Christian had to admit that he had acted rashly for a moment without any concern for the consequences of his words.
No matter how bad he wanted to stick up for Luna, he knew that Joshua’s wealth and power were not to be underestimated. He could not afford to get on Joshua’s bad side at all.
As soon as he heard this, Joshua’s cold expression softened. He furrowed his brows and asked impassively, “What did you and Luna talk about for the entire night?“
This was the reason why he had answered Christian’s call. Otherwise, he would not have bothered picking up the phone at all.
Christian fell into silence for a moment, then let out an exhale and replied, “She…took me to Bay Bridge and told me about your past together. She said that she didn’t fall into the water from the accident. She had landed on the edge of the bridge, but when the driver saw that she was still hanging on, he took out his phone, called someone named Mr. Lynch, and kicked her into the water on his orders.“
Christian tried to steer the conversation away from what they were discussing and onto Luna’s past. “ She even told me that the reason she had walked onto the bridge was that she overheard you and her sister Aura together at home.“
Christian narrowed his eyes and asked, “Joshua, what kind of relationship did you have with Luna’s sister?“
Joshua’s expression darkened when he heard this. “We didn’t have a relationship at all,“ he replied curtly.
The only thing he and Aura had in common was Luna.
“But as soon as Luna got into her accident, you announced your engagement with Aura.“
“That was because I wanted to help Luna take care of her sister! “
“Oh,“ Christian replied impassively. “But from Luna’s point of view, she believed what she heard and thought that you had plotted her death so you could be together with Aura.“
Joshua narrowed his eyes and replied, enunciating his words coldly, “I was never together with Aura, and I’ve never plotted for Luna to be killed! “
Christian let out a sigh. “Of course I believe you, Joshua, but Luna doesn’t. She’s still holding a grudge over what happened in the past. If you don’t track down Aura soon, Luna will never believe that you’re innocent, no matter how hard you try to explain yourself.“ With that, he immediately changed the topic. “By the way, Luna told me that Aura’s returned to Banyan City. Do you know about this, Joshua?“
