Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 978
Seeing that Fiona was almost done cleaning up, Joshua got up from his seat and said, “I worked late last night, so I’m feeling a little tired now. I’m going to get some rest first. If you need anything, ask the butler and servants for help. If they can’t help you, then call me.“
With that, he stood up and strode out of the room.
As soon as she heard his footsteps recede, Fiona clenched her fists in anger.
She should not have listened to Aura at all!
Aura had told her that the children were Luna’s weaknesses, so as long as they took the children away, Luna would not be able to retaliate at all.
She even said that Joshua would send Luna into a mental asylum, but she was wrong. Not only was Luna not admitted into a mental asylum, but Joshua had even let Granny Lynch move into Orchard Manor as well!
Granny Lynch detested Fiona more than anything, but this time, Joshua was asking her to compromise and make peace with Granny Lynch.
On top of that, when the children and Granny Lynch moved in the night before, Fiona discovered an even more harrowing problem—
She no longer had an opportunity to seduce and get close to Joshua anymore!
Since there were so many people at home, she could no longer prance around in her slinky pajamas anymore in an attempt to seduce Joshua.
At the same time, she could not ask Joshua to send the children away. After all, she was the one who had suggested he let them move into Orchard Manor in the first place.
If only she had known things would turn out like this.
Fiona gritted her teeth and took out her phone to send Aura a message.
(When are you going to get rid of Luna?]
A reply soon came. (Hey, let’s take things slow. We’re not in a rush. After all, the slowest kill gives the most painful burn.]
As soon as he came out of Fiona’s room, Joshua ran into Granny Lynch, who had been waiting at the end of the hallway all this while.
She grabbed onto him and gave him another rundown of Fiona’s so -called misconducts. Finally, she let loose a final warning, “I’ll give you three days’ time. If by the end of three days, you still can’t provide any evidence saying that Luna is mentally ill and really did commit domestic abuse against the children, I’ll get her to move into Orchard Manor! “
Joshua had no choice but to relent and comfort Granny Lynch.
After sending Granny Lynch off, Joshua let out an exhale and returned to his bedroom. Then, he picked up his phone and dialed a number. “Please ask Mr. Jenson and his team to come to Banyan City
tomorrow. Tell them to cancel all other jobs scheduled for these few days. If they need to pay any penalty for cancellation, I’ll cover it.“
After hanging up, he held his face in his hands, then laid down on his bed in exhaustion.
Unbeknownst to everyone, he, too, wished that Luna was mentally stable, unlike what Nigel had claimed. In fact, he probably longed for this more than anyone else in this world.
He wanted both her and her children to be healthy… After all, he was the reason she had lost two other children.
He never wanted her to go through anything as devastating as that again.
Blue Bay Villa.
Luna had just come out of the shower. Just as she was about to lay down on her bed, however, her phone rang.
It was a call from Bonnie. “Luna, I’ve messed up.“
Luna furrowed her brows and sat up. “What’s wrong?“
“Remember the voice message you left for me last night? You wanted me to invite the world-renowned physician, Dr. Robert Jenson, and his medical team to Banyan City to diagnose you, didn’t you?
“However…just now, Dr. Jenson’s team called to tell me that an important client of theirs wanted them to cancel all their jobs, saying that he or she was willing to bear the charges.”
Luna’s hand, which was holding the phone, stiffened upon hearing this. “So…when is the earliest he can meet me?”
Bonnie let out a sigh. “We won’t be able to get an appointment within this week.”
Luna felt her heart sink. A week…
A week was more than enough time for Joshua to send her into a mental asylum!
“I’ll have to think of another way.”
