Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1484
“Since a daughter of the Landry family cannot bear children for the Lynch family, then what about me, a child of both? Why didn’t you kill me from the beginning, Father?“
The entire room fell into silence upon hearing this.
Charles glared at Jim and snapped, “What nonsense are you saying? You’re becoming more and more outrageous every day! You didn’t inherit any of your mother’s gentleness and humility at all! “
Jim sneered. “You’re right. I didn’t inherit any of my mother’s strengths at all, and instead, I inherited all of your worst traits. You shou1d’ve seen this coming, Mr. Landry. If so, why didn’t you kill me from the beginning?“
“You— “ Charles was so enraged that his blood pressure soared, and he slumped down in a chair, his entire face scarlet with fury. “You disrespectful thing! Disrespectful!“
Rosalyn could not bear to see Charles like this, so she let out a sigh and glanced at Jim. “Jim, why do you have to say such provocative things like this? Your father didn’t mean anything bad at all. The baby in Luna’s belly…“
She lowered her head and said, “It’s best to get rid of it. Otherwise, if it gets brought into this world, it’d be subjected to the same fate as you.“
Jim froze for a moment, then immediately understood what Rosalyn was talking about. He furrowed his brows and let out a scoff, then plopped onto the sofa without another word.
A split second later, Charles glanced at the untouched pill in front of Luna and said, “It’s time to make a choice, Luna.“
Luna lifted her head and glanced at Charles coldly, then at the pill in front of her. She picked it up and said, sneering, “Are you asking me to kill my baby— my baby that survived against all odds—with a pill? I refuse to do so.“
With that, she tossed the pill into the trash can.
Then, Luna stood up and said, “I got pregnant with this child before I even returned to the Landry family, so none of you have the right to decide what to do with my child.
“Or I guess I should say, even I, the baby’s mother, have no right to dictate this child’s survival. The only person who can be the judge of that would be itself.
“If you think this baby’s existence is a humiliation to the Landry family’s reputation, then you can kick me out, Mr. Landry. Even if Joshua doesn’t want me anymore, I don’t have to return to your side anyway.“
With that, she turned to glance at a pale-faced Rosalyn as well as Heather, who was standing next to her. “I guess that since you already have your eldest daughter, you don’t need your second one at all.“
Rosalyn’s eyes widened when she heard this. She quickly stepped away from Heather, putting a small distance between them, and said anxiously, “Luna, you… How can you say something like that?”
Luna did not reply and instead strode upstairs.
As soon as she entered her room, however, one of the servants came to inform the rest of the family in the living room, “Master Landry, Master Quinn has arrived.”
“Why would he come at a time like this?”
“He…” the servant fell silent for a moment, then replied, “He said that since Ms. Luna is pregnant with his child, he’s come to admit his wrongdoing.”
