Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1742
“Nothing.” Jim’s expression was so cold it was as though he would kill someone at any moment. “I’m sorry for disturbing the two of you; go back to bed!”
With that, he slammed the phone down.
Luna furrowed her brows, and just as she was about to ask him what had happened, Jim stood up and said, “I’m going out for a walk.”
With that, he left the room, slamming the door behind him.
Luna glanced at the door with a blank look, her mind full of questions,
Was he not about to ask Christopher if he knew anything about Quentin? Why did he…
“He’s upset about something.” As a fellow man, Joshua could tell what had happened just by Jim’s attitude and body language. He furrowed his brows and said, “Why don’t you ask Bonnie who she was with last night?”
Luna froze for a moment, then came to a realization. “So Bonnie was the one who picked up the phone just now?”
The fact that Christopher’s phone was with Bonnie so early in the morning meant that they had spent the night together.
Luna rubbed her brows in frustration.
Just a few days ago, Charlotte had materialized out of nowhere, claiming to be Jim’s first girlfriend, and all of a sudden, Jim had discovered that Bonnie was involved with Christopher.
Luna bit her lip.
Could it be that…Jim and Bonnie were not meant to be after all?
“Let’s not dwell on that anymore.” Joshua let out an exhale and glanced impassively at Luna.” Who was the one that told you to attend Mr. Hanson’s party last night?
“I sent my men to interrogate Harold about this, and he said that someone bribed him under your name, requesting him to let you attend the party.
“He had told the person who bribed him very clearly that the party was supposed to be an orgy, but the person had said it wasn’t a problem at all and that you were willing to attend.”
With that, he fixated his penetrating stare on Luna’s face and added, “I want to know were you the one who volunteered to attend this party, or did Jim put you up to this.”
Luna widened her eyes in shock upon hearing this. She could not believe her ears. “The person who bribed Harold…knew what kind of party it was?”
Why was she unaware of this?
According to the information she had found the day before, Mr. Hanson’s party was supposed to be a small gathering among friends, where they would dine and drink some wine, and they were invited to bring plus-ones along.
Because of this. Luna had thought this was just a simple dinner party. If she had known what kind of party it truly was, she would not have gone at all!
As soon as she thought of this, she felt a chill go down her spine.
Charlotte was the one who had planned all this.
She was the one who had given her the information about the party and the one who had contacted Harold on her behalf.
The night before, when she had called out for help, Charlotte had lost contact with her.
If Joshua had not arrived just in time…
Luna would have woken up in the bed of a man more than twice her age!
Luna bit her lip and wrung her hands nervously.
Finally, she decided she would find Charlotte and ask her about this.
Was all of this planned?
Also, why had no one come to save her when she cried for help, even though they had planted all those people outside the restaurant for situations like this? Even if the communication device had somehow malfunctioned, that could not explain why n o one had attempted to contact her after she had gone missing for an entire night.
With her mind full of doubts, Luna left the room and went to the end of the hallway, where she dialed Charlotte’s number.
Soon, Charlotte picked up
Luna let out an exhale. “Hello, Charlotte.”
“Luna! You finally got in touch with me!” greeted Charlotte excitedly as soon as Luna uttered these few syllables. “Where are you? Are you okay?
“Let me tell you some fantastic news! Mr. Hanson has agreed to work with us! “We’re going to sign the contract this afternoon, and it’s all thanks to you, Luna!”
