Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1748
Luna seemed to recall someone at the dinner party saying that she had to have sex with someone to counter the drug’s effects.
If Joshua had not slept with her, then why was she awake?
Not only that, but how would Theo know if anything happened between them at all?
Theo gulped when he saw the confusion in Luna’s eyes.
After all, this was the woman he used to love, so it was extremely difficult for him to expose Luna like this.
After all, Luna had just claimed that she and Joshua had slept together and was even using this to negotiate with him, but at this moment, he had to tell Luna she was wrong right to her face.
The truth could not be changed.
Theo let out an exhale and explained, “I’ve been staying at Joshua’s place ever since I moved
out from your house.
“Because of this, I was there when he brought you home last night, and I witnessed everything that happened.”
Luna’s entire body froze when she heard this. “When you said you were staying with a friend.. that friend was Joshua?”
No wonder Theo was so interested in her work and had even asked her how she would get M 1. Hanson to do business with her.
No wonder Joshua had appeared just in time at the dinner party the night before.
It turned out it was because Theo had been living with him all this while.
She let out an exhale and said, “You’re full of surprises, Theo.”
If she remembered correctly, Theo and Joshua used to loathe each other, so since when did they become such good friends and were even living together?
Not only that, but he was even helping Joshua spy on her. Theo could not meet Luna’s gaze, and he quickly turned away. He let out an exhale and said, “Last night…nothing happened between you and Joshua at all. I can attest to that.”
Even though he had hoped Joshua would sleep with her so that she would wake up quickly, Joshua had insisted not to. Therefore, the two of them had no choice but to bring some ice packs along as they traveled to Lincoln City to keep Luna from burning up.
The drug’s effects had finally worn off in the wee hours of the morning, which was when
Luna had awoken.
Theo let out another exhale and shot Joshua a meaningful glance. “Well, that’s all I have to say, so I’ll be off now.”
With that, he scurried away as though something was hot on his heels, leaving only Joshua and Luna standing in the hallway.
All of a sudden, Joshua received a call from Lucas. “Sir, Dr. Liddell has successfully contacted the blood bank, and they’re on their way to us now.
“According to the doctor here, the blood we have on hand is enough to last Ms. Larson for four hours, so our crisis has been temporarily averted. However, you still have to contact Mr.
Jones about this.
“Ms. Gwen kept cursing him even while she was unconscious…”
Luna bit down on her lip. Seeing that Joshua was on the phone, she inched herself away from him, intending to make a break for it.
However, she had just taken two steps when someone grabbed hold of her wrist.
Joshua murmured in reply as he gripped Luna’s wrist, “Alright. Thanks for notifying me.”
With that, he hung up the phone and stared at Luna, smiling. “Have you heard what Lucas said?”
Luna frowned and tried to fling his arm away from her. “Yes, I heard.” 1
“Well, I’ve done my due now.” Joshua stared at her with a penetrating gaze. “So, you owe me
Luna frowned. “Alright, I owe you a favor.”
“No, not a favor.” Joshua sneered as he lifted his hand to graze Luna’s rosy lips with his finger, “Ms. Luna, you said just now that you’d use one night of pleasure with you in exchange for saving Gwen.
“Since you’re willing to use your body as a negotiation tool, then don’t mind if I do.”
With that, he let go of her, the look in his eyes as cold as his tone. “You owe me one night.
“If you ever intend to make such business transactions again in the future, feel free to hit me up. If anything, I think it’s a tremendous deal.”
With that, he turned and strode away.
Luna remained motionless, her face as pale as a ghost.
