Chapter 660 Malice Never Left
In a dimly lit room, a man with gray hair approached with a syringe. Then, the frigid liquid slowly infiltrated Luna’s body.
When Luna caught sight of the man’s face, she let out a horrified scream and woke up the next second. As she sat in her room, her heart raced in her chest, and her ringing phone seemed like a death knell, desperately demanding attention.
A surge of immense annoyance overwhelmed her as she stared at her phone, unable to control her frustration.
As the workday drew to a close, Abigail was packing up when she received a call from Scarlett. She answered it and was about to mention that she was heading home for dinner when she heard Scarlett sobbing. “Abby, please come back quickly. Luna and Josh are having a heated argument, and we don’t know what to do.”
“I’ll be right back!” Abigail hung up the phone, grabbed her bag, and hurried back.
Returning to the Pearson Residence, she sensed a tense atmosphere in the living room. Handing her bag to the nanny, she changed into a pair of slippers.
When Luna saw Abigail approaching, she immediately stood up. “I have something to attend to. I need to leave.”
“Luna, what happened between you and Josh?” Abigail approached her, holding her hand and inquiring.
“Nothing. I just need to go.” Luna shook off Abigail’s hand, her expression filled with frustration.
Abigail followed her, frowning. “Luna, can you please tell us what’s going on? If you want to break up, it’s okay. Just talk to him calmly.”
“Do you think he listens when I talk to him? Yes, I haven’t been going to the company much in the past three months, and I haven’t spent much time with him. Can’t I have my things to do?!” Luna became agitated as soon as she mentioned this.
Abigail now understood. Luna must have been arguing with Josh because he expressed his doubts to her. As a result, he was unable to control his temper.
“Don’t mind him. Have you eaten? If not, let’s eat before you return, okay?” She tried to soothe Luna. She didn’t understand why Luna had changed so much in six months. She is entirely different from before. In the past, she would argue, but she won’t snap like this at her boyfriend’s house.
“I don’t want to eat. I’ll go back first,” Luna said, heading toward the door.
Abigail immediately followed her, speaking gently. “Laina, I know a bar. I’ll send the address to your phone. Head there first. I’ll change my clothes and drive over. How about I accompany you to relax?”
Luna glanced at her and finally nodded slightly. After she left, Abigail looked at Josh with displeasure
and asked, “Why did you ask her all those questions without figuring things out first?”
“I just mentioned it briefly, and she suddenly smashed the bowl and started arguing with me.” Josh still didn’t understand what he did wrong. He just wanted to show his concern for Luna.
Scarlett covered her chest and silently sobbed.
“Luna’s temper has been strange these past few months. There was no sign of her outburst tonight. She was fine with your mother before dinner. When you have some alone time with her, ask her what’s going on. If something is bothering her, we can all discuss it together. We’re willing to support her.” Lawrence was also worried about Luna.
Luna seems different.
“I know. I’ll change my clothes.” Abigail furrowed her brow.
As Luna’s best friend, Abigail knew something was weighing on Luna’s mind, but she wasn’t sure if she could get Luna to open up about what happened. After changing her clothes, Abigail drove straight to the bar, where Luna was already waiting for her.
Abigail ordered drinks and food. She leaned back in her seat as she talked to Luna about how it felt to be with Sean. “We used to have some distance between us. After spending half a year together and being with each other daily, that distance seemed to disappear. If you’re feeling stressed, do you want to go out for a walk?”
“I’m planning to go on a trip. I’ll leave in a couple of days. I told Josh today, but he won’t let me go. I don’t understand why he won’t allow me to travel.” Luna looked displeased, her tone tinged with irritation.
Abigail sat up straight, slightly surprised. “Why is this so sudden?”
“We’re not lacking money. Can’t we just go whenever we want? I’ve been in Capitalis for too long, and it feels like everyone is always in a rush. It’s suffocating me a bit.” Luna smiled.
“Luna, is something bothering you? The Pearson Family likes you and hopes you can be with Josh.” Abigail decided to be direct. That was how they always were with each other-they did not beat around the bush.
Luna lowered her gaze and smiled. “What could be bothering me? Don’t overthink it.”
“We’re best friends, and you can tell me if something is wrong. If it’s because of Sean and me leaving you with the workload, causing problems between you and Josh, I would feel guilty!” Abigail raised her voice a bit.
“There isn’t anything between us, and we just got to know each other better. That’s why it turned out like this. Please stop asking. We agreed to have a drink together. Why bring up these questions?” Luna finished speaking and downed the contents of her glass.
