Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 871
Luna pursed her lips upon hearing Charmaine’s question but did not know what to say in response.
She could not tell them that Joshua gave her the hickey, yet at the same time, she could not think of any other excuse.
Luna was afraid that if she told everyone that it was Joshua, Fiona would fake her illness and pretend to faint.
If that happened and Joshua rushed over, Luna was worried that Joshua would deny everything, causing her to become the offender once more.
However, if she did not come clean with the truth… How else could she explain the hickey? She could not say that she did it herself, could she?
“What’s wrong? Cat got your tongue? “ Charmaine could tell Luna was hesitant to tell the truth because of Fiona and felt even more confident in her guesses. “Didn’t you go to the hospital? Did the doctor give you a kiss for your boo-boo?”
Luna narrowed her eyes and swept her cold glance across Charmaine’s face. “Why do you care so much about something on my neck?“
“That’s right.“ Arianna rolled her eyes at Charmaine and could not help adding, “First, you insisted that Director Luna faked her injury, and now, you’re questioning something that’s on her neck. I don’t think it’s any of your business at all! “
Charmaine snickered. “I just wanted to get to the bottom of things, that’s all.“ She crossed her arms at her chest and continued, “After all, Mr. Lynch did carry Director Luna away just now. He is my best friend, Fiona’s boyfriend, so of course I want to get to the bottom of this so that I know Luna isn’t having an affair with Mr. Lynch. Besides…“
Charmaine curled her lips into a smirk. “Director Luna was in her office the entire morning but didn’t suffer any injuries at all, but as soon as Mr. Lynch arrived, she ended up hurting herself so badly.
“On top of that, it was her arm that had gotten hurt, not her legs, but she still needed Mr. Lynch to carry her… Who knows if her injuries were real, or if she was just faking it to get Mr. Lynch’s attention?“
“You— “ Arianna glared at Charmaine in fury. On the other hand, Samson was so infuriated by this that he lunged forward as though he wanted to beat Charmaine before Zayne stopped him.
Just as the atmosphere in the office grew tense by the second, a clear, male voice rang out from the door, “Why, what an excellent imagination you have there.“
Everyone immediately glanced in the direction of the voice.
Luna, too, furrowed her brows upon hearing this voice and lifted her head.
Christian was leaning against the doorframe casually, staring at the employees with a roguish look on his face, while Joshua stood behind him, his expression dark.
Everyone in the office fell into silence upon seeing their arrival.
“Joshua, is this the Lynch Group’s work culture? It’s quite interesting, I must say, “ teased Christian with a small smirk. Then, he turned to smile at Luna. “I was worried about your injury, so I came upstairs to check on you, but I didn’t expect to stumble upon such an exciting show!
“I guess it’s true when they say that designers’ brains are built differently from normal people’s,“ added Christian as he slowly walked toward Luna. “ Any normal person would surely be concerned when they saw their colleague or superior getting hurt, but you, Ms. Ross, are built differently. Luna has
suffered such a serious injury, yet you’re fixated on her hickey instead.“
Then, he pulled Luna into his arms.
As soon as he did this, Christian could feel Joshua’s cold gaze on him. He could not care less, though.
Just a few minutes ago, he had witnessed Luna removing her bandage right in front of everyone.
Initially, he, too, thought that there would not be any wound beneath the bandage since he had just found out about everything that happened from Shannon a short while ago.
To his surprise, however…there was a cut on Luna’s arm beneath the bandage.
Christian quickly put two and two together and realized that Luna had deliberately hurt herself to ensure she would not be caught out.
On top of that, the wound was a fairly large and deep one.
He could not believe that Luna willingly hurt herself to prevent anyone from misunderstanding her. As soon as he realized this, Christian could not help but feel sorry for her.
He smiled, glancing at Charmaine and Fiona. “Didn’t you want to know where the hickey came from?
Well, it’s from me.”
As soon as he said this, the entire office burst into a flurry of activity as the employees murmured and gossiped about this discovery.
Meanwhile, Charmaine’s face turned pale.
