Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy
Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 18 Luna frowned. “Why?”. “That woman has bad intentions!” The emotional Neil responded quickly, “Mommy, I can’t explain it to you how I found out exactly, but it’s blatant she wants to hurt Nellie. Don’t go out with her tomorrow!” The woman sighed. “Neil, what you can think of, I can think of as well, but you have to know that I’m powerless. I can’t decide for Nellie. Joshua had always been on guard for her. ” If Luna prevented Nellie and Aura from ‘bonding’, Joshua’s suspicion over her would heighten. She only had very little power to protect Nellie with her given status, which was why she was enraged when Neil sent Nellie to Joshua. She took a deep breath. “Don’t worry. I’ll do my best to protect Nellie. After all, the amusement park was also a crowded place. In public, with herself and the bodyguards that Joshua sent, Aura could never do as she pleased. “But…” Neil was well aware of his mother’s situation. He pursed his lips, his voice sullen, “I shouldn’t have asked Nellie to reunite with Joshua Lynch…” He only wanted Nellie to act as a fly on the wall for Mommy so she could complete her plan as soon as possible, but he did not expect that Aura would try so desperately to attack a six-year-old girl! “Let’s not talk about this. ” Luna sighed. “Mommy can’t take care of you now. You have to get along with your godmother. Do you hear me?” “Okay. ” Neil’s voice was dull. “I’ll hang up then, Mommy. ” “And,” the woman frowned. “Be good. Don’t cook up any more plans regarding Aura and Joshua anymore, do you hear me?” “Alright. ” …. Early the next morning, Aura arrived at Blue Bay Villa. Because of Joshua’s orders, the bodyguard stopped her outside the door. Standing in the courtyard outside the villa, Aura smiled and called out Nellie’s name. “Nellie, come out!” “I’m taking you out for some fun!” “Nellie!” In the children’s room upstairs, Nellie sat in front of the small mirror and watched Luna comb her hair, lips flat in dissatisfaction. “I don’t want such an aunt at all
I hate her! I hate her so much!” The little girl continued to mutter, “Why did Daddy ask me to hang out with her? I told him I don’t like her, yet he’s still making me go out with her!” Luna’s hand that combed her hair slowly paused. “Aura is the person your father likes and will be your father’s wife in the future. Remember what I told you before? You can’t keep telling someone that you hate something when that person likes it. The same goes for people. ” Nellie flattened her lips, her grievance written all over her face. “I’m just venting to you…” “From now on, you shouldn’t. ” “Okay. ” The little girl pursed her lips unhappily but did not press on the matter. In the courtyard outside the villa, the woman continued to yell, “Nellie, it’s time to go!” Aura was not a very patient woman. In just half an hour, she had asked the servants to come in and rush them more than a dozen times while she kept shouting outside. Downright annoyed, Nellie did not even have her breakfast as she pulled Luna out. “Nellie—” When Luna and Nellie went out, Aura was still standing in the yard, looking in the direction of the children’s room upstairs. “I’ll take you to the amusement park, Nellie. We’ll have a lot of fun! Let’s go! “Your father is busy, and your mother is a scaredy-cat and didn’t dare come back, so as your aunt, I have to take on the task of being a parent and take you out to play—!” “Stop shouting. ” Nellie stood at the door of the villa with a cold expression. “You’re so noisy. ” A cold look of indifference flashed through Aura’s eyes before it vanished. She walked toward her, her eyes full of tenderness, and pulled Nellie’s small body into her arms. “I was afraid you were still asleep!” She looked at Nellie’s clothes and pigtails. “You look so good today!” Her voice was genial, her actions were gentle, and even her eyes looked extremely kind, but all that faux gentleness made Nellie shudder slightly. She turned her head and glanced at Luna subconsciously. Her mother smiled at her and motioned for her to calm down. “Let’s get in the car. ” Noticing the look Nellie and Luna shared, Aura placed Nellie in the back seat of the car unhappily. Luna raised her legs to get into the car, too. “You think you can sit in this car?” Aura snorted coldly and raised her hand to stop Luna. “You’re just a nanny. Don’t think too much of yourself! Just take a car with those bodyguards. Don’t disturb me from bonding with Nellie!” Luna frowned. “Nellie didn’t eat breakfast, and I have bread in my bag. I can serve her the food
” “I can, too!” Aura snatched the bag out of Luna’s hand, ducked into the car, and closed the door. “Get into the other car!” Luna had no choice but to give Nellie a meaningful stare before she got into the car behind. The cars started their journey. Luna sat between a few security guards and put on her headphones. She had long predicted that Aura would cause trouble again, so she purposely made modifications to the necklace Nellie was wearing. Aura’s mean voice came from the other end of the headphones. “Nellie, can you tell me where your mother is, please?” “Nellie, did your mother teach you to be so hostile to me?” “Why didn’t she come back? She asked you, a little girl, to come back because she wanted to use you to please your father, so she can sit back and reap the benefits? You’re only six years old, and it’s so pitiful to be used by your mother like this…” Nellie remained stoic the entire ride, no matter what Aura spoke, and it was not long until the cars arrived at the amusement park. The amusement park was overcrowded on weekends, but Luna felt rather relieved at the sight. The more people there were, the safer it was. With a fake smile on her face, Aura began to buy tickets for Nellie and showed her the various rides and shows available. With Luna’s advice beforehand, Nellie rejected all the games with a high-risk factor on the pretense that she was afraid. The dissatisfied Aura could say nothing. As they stood before the Ferris wheel, however, Nellie could not leave. The little girl raised her head and looked at the Ferris wheel with longing eyes. “Can I… take this ride?” “Sure!” A trace of joy passed through Aura’s eyes. She quickly ordered the bodyguard next to her, “Go buy tickets for the little princess; two tickets!” After the bodyguard bought the tickets, she turned her head and looked at Luna with a smile. “You’ve been worried about every little thing all morning, making it seem like I’m going to kill Nellie. ” With that, the woman changed into a comfortable position and sat on the chair. “Please accompany her on the Ferris Wheel while I rest. Besides, you’ll be all suspicious otherwise. ” Luna frowned and instinctively felt that something was wrong with Aura’s behavior, but before she had time to contemplate her purpose, Nellie excitedly took her hand and rushed toward the Ferris wheel. “Auntie, Nellie wanted to ride the Ferris wheel with you all day!” She knew that Mommy liked the Ferris wheel very much, but while they were living abroad, she was too busy and had no time to rest and relax. This was their chance! The little girl excitedly grabbed Luna and ran over, stamped their tickets, and took a seat. “I’m so happy!” Luna had no choice but to take a seat beside her. The Ferris wheel started to rotate. Aura changed into a more comfortable posture and leaned back on the chair, coldly glancing at the people around her. “Is everything arranged?” “Yes, Ma’am. ” The woman smiled triumphantly. They liked the Ferris wheel, did they? Well, she would make them stay on it forever!
