Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 2166

Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 2166

When Lucas reached Joshua’s house, the living room was so cold that it felt like they were in an igloo.

Joshua was sitting on the couch, watching Lucas walking in with his cold eyes. Meanwhile, Nigel was beside him, using his laptop for something, and the anxious Luna frantically typed away on her phone.

The atmosphere was so cold that it could easily suffocate a person.

Lucas braced himself to approach them and greeted, “Mr. Lynch.”

After giving Lucas a brief response, he threw the documents at Lucas. “Do you remember Laura Suess, the family physician that you chose? You said that you’ve conducted a background investigation and reference checks, yes?”

Lucas was stunned as he hurriedly picked up the documents that had fallen to the floor. He compiled it in order and started to skim through the pages.

When he saw the information that Granny Quinn was the one who sponsored Laura to further her study and the close relationship between Laura and the Quinn family, his body shivered.

Then, along with an audible thump, Lucas fell to his knees on the floor. “Mr. Lynch, … It’s my fault. I-I am to be blamed. I didn’t investigate fully.”

Joshua narrowed his eyes and did not say anything as he watched the way Lucas knelt.

“Lucas, it’s unlike you to be so careless. You’ve always conducted a detailed investigation of every person who comes to work with Joshua. What went wrong with Laura Seuss? Why did you fail to thoroughly investigate her background?”

Looking at how hopeless Lucas was, Luna could not bear to stand by the side. “You’ve been working for Joshua for so many years and he’d definitely go easy on you for all that hard work you’ve contributed, as long as you come clean to us.”

Luna’s consoling words had Lucas quivering. A second later, he lifted his head and fearfully looked at Joshua, who had been quiet the whole time. “Mr. Lynch…”

Joshua glanced at him lightly, then looked at Luna. In the end, he rubbed between his eyebrows in exasperation. “Listen to her.”

Lucas served as Joshua’s right man. According to how Joshua would punish those who made mistakes, those he trusted the most would receive heavier punishments.

If Luna had not said those words, the punishment that awaited Lucas would be unthinkable.

In this matter, Lucas had a dereliction of duty when he failed to conduct the investigation. On a very serious note, he gave Joshua’s opponent the opportunity to attack him when he least expected it.

For the past few days, Joshua had pondered how the Quinn family could keep their calm after he

and the Landry family started the investigation on them secretly.

The mystery was finally solved when Jim called him this morning.

The reason for the Quinn family to bide one’s time was that they had a mole. With Laura in place, they could easily know what was happening with Joshua and Jim, and they knew ahead of the plan Joshua and Jim had drawn out.

After getting Joshua’s confirmation, Lucas exhaled a deep breath and felt relieved. He then bent, his body almost parallel to the floor.

“I… Yes, I failed to conduct the investigation,” Lucas confessed

“It’s because Laura Seuss is your girlfriend’s most admired senior, isn’t she? That’s why you didn’t actually go through every detail when your girlfriend recommended her to you, or you probably tumed a blind eye to the investigation,” came a remark, sounding boyish and clear. “Am I right?”

Nigel slowly closed the laptop and, with a faint smile on his lips, continued, “You think that there shouldn’t be a problem with your girlfriend’s recommendation, so you let your guard down. Uncle Lucas, should I say that you’re too naive, or that you’re head over heels for your girlfriend?”

Nigel’s comments left Lucas stranded in despair. His forehead was beaded with sweat, and he was at a complete loss for words.

Lucas was solely at fault for this chaos. He just never expected Laura had a close relationship with the Quinn family.

“I’ll give you a chance to make up for your mistake,” Joshua finally decided, his lips curled into a small smile, though his gaze toward Lucas seemed indifferent. “Contact your girlfriend now and tell her that I have the whole city on lockdown to search for Laura. Also, tell her that this woman is a bad person.”

The command from Joshua left Lucas silent for a moment before he hastily nodded. “Understood! I’ll get to it now!”

Once Lucas left and faded from view, Nigel lifted his head and looked at Joshua, visibly unsatisfied.
