Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy – Chapter 479

“No… Of course not.” Alice bit down on her lip and stared at Joshua with a pitiful expression. “I wasn’t upset with you. On the contrary, I’m thrilled to be able to work at Lynch Group. I know that the reason you wanted me to come in to work is that you didn’t want me to feel bored at home, and also because you wanted me to get used to this place so that we can work together in the future, but…”

Joshua narrowed his eyes. “But what?”

Alice sighed and glanced at Joshua. “I was scared that if I start from the bottom, the rest of the employees will look down on me.
Even though I’m the CEO’s wife, I still have to start from the bottom to climb to the top…” Alice wiped her tears and continued, “Joshua, you know that I was born into an ordinary family in Sea City. My family isn’t wealthy, and I’ve always felt insecure about that…”

Joshua’s brows furrowed upon hearing that. He gazed at her red-rimmed eyes and heaved a deep sigh. “You’re right. Working with someone as skilled as Luna might’ve been too challenging for a moment, then finally said, “I’ll ask her to assign you some easier tasks.”

He lifted his head and fixated his deep gaze on Alice. “I can understand why you acted the way you did just now. You lashed out at Luna because you wanted to make everyone else respect you and gain your dignity back. However…” Joshua narrowed his eyes. “Did you really break Luna’s photo frame by accident?“

Luna had so many items on her desk; why did Alice just so happen to break the photo frame? Why did she step on the photo, puncturing a hole right through Luna’s face?

Joshua was not stupid. He knew that it was not just a simple accident.
Alice knew this as well, so she took a deep breath and admitted the truth, “I did it on purpose.”

Joshua raised his brows at her.

“I was jealous of Luna because she had so many memories with Neil, but I had none. Luna can display a picture of her and Neil on her desk, but what about me? I don’t have anything at all. Neil still refuses to call me Mommy, much less take a photo with me.” With that, Alice lifted her head to look at him as if she was genuine.

“I know it wasn’t right of me to do that, but I couldn’t stop myself. Neil is my son. I can’t stand seeing how close he is to Luna.*

“You have to know that you were missing from Neil’s life for a long time, “ remarked Joshua as he gently tapped his slender fingers against his desk. “ Besides, even though Neil has returned to your side now, you never fulfilled your responsibility as a mother to him.*

Alice bit down on her lip. “That’s because I didn’t have a chance to do so. I… “ Before she could finish, however, someone knocked on the door.
Lucas’ voice rang out from the other side, “President Lynch, the photo restoration specialist is here.”

Joshua murmured a reply and turned around to glance at Alice. “Get back to work, Remember, even though Neil isn’t close with you, it’s not Luna’s fault. It’s yours. Please don’t ever bring personal grudges into your work in the future.”

Alice bit down on her lip and muttered in response. Then, she turned around and left the room.

Just as she was about to leave, however, Joshua suddenly recalled something and stopped her. “Are you sure you gave birth to only two children at the time?”

Alice’s heart leaped into her throat.
