Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 125
As soon as Freya saw Shaun entering the ward, she immediately got up and said, “I”m going to buy some food for Cathy outside the hospital.”
“No need,” Shaun replied coldly, “The food sold there isn’t hygienic. I’ve ordered some food from a seven-star hotel, which will be delivered here.”
Freya was speechless.
Whoa. Catherine would be able to eat food from a seven-star hotel despite being admitted to the hospital. How blessed she was.
Freya approached the bed and winked at Catherine. After that, she immediately ran away.
Catherine was flattered as she did not expect Shaun to be treating her so well. Was this an illusion? She seemed to sense a trace of warmth in his eyes.
“Actually, I don’t mind eating anything.”
Feeling tense and intimidated, Catherine spoke softly.
“Anything?” Shaun gave out a deep laugh, yet his eyes were icy. “Did you not read the medical certificate issued by the doctor?”
Catherine was in a daze. She had not read it.
“Stupid.” With a somber expression, Shaun continued, “Aren’t you aware of how weak your damned body is? The doctor said that you’ll forever be infertile if you don’t take care of it.”
Those words really shocked Catherine.
Indeed, she had not been taking care of her body just because she was young. Now that she thought about the matter, it hit her that she had been having irregular and light periods lately.
“Let me warn you that I won’t want to get together with a woman who can’t produce eggs,” Shaun reminded her so that she would become aware. If she still wished to be with him, she had to nurse herself back to health.
Catherine’s mouth twitched in annoyance. She refuted discontentedly, “Of course, I can’t produce eggs. I’m not a hen.”
“How dare you talk back?” Shaun walked forward while squinting his eyes.
Catherine was so frightened that she curled up in her blanket. Upon accidentally touching her own wounds, she shuddered in pain.
Shaun’s mind flashed with sympathy and helplessness as he thought that she was frightened. He was not even a devil. Why did she have to act in this manner?
“Come out and sign this.”
He tossed the document onto her blanket. The minute Catherine saw the words ‘Marriage and Cohabitation Agreement’ written on the document, she was dumbfounded.
She reluctantly opened the document to take a look. Basically, it was stated that she would live with him and take charge of cooking, cleaning, looking after the cat and him, and…
She had to get home by 9:00 p.m. every day. She was also not allowed to go on a date with anyone of the opposite s*x alone.
What nonsense were these?
As Shaun gazed at her stunned look, he assumed that she was too excited that she froze.
He curled his lips but soon stifled the smile. He gave a deep cough while clenching his fists. “Don’t overthink. For the last statement, it will depend on your performance. Otherwise, don’t ever think about getting onto my bed. Also, don’t use any underhanded tactics anymore as they really disgust me. Do you understand?”
Nope. She did not understand it at all.
Catherine was completely at a loss.
Who was the one who looked at her with contempt before this?
Shaun lifted his chin arrogantly. “Sign this agreement, and I’ll settle the case regarding the hotel for you. I’ll also make sure the culprit receives the punishment he deserves.”
“Are you referring to James?”
Shaun sat on the bed, stretching out his attractive long legs.
“The Clark family has decided to sue you. The case will probably go to court next week. For now, no one in the whole of Melbourne has the audacity to handle the case, except me. I have a rough idea who the Clark family is going to hire as their lawyer. He’s brilliant, and he’s capable of making you face a sentence of over 20 years.”
Catherine shuddered. Shaun then curled his thin lips. “But I guess having you serve a one-year jail sentence is good enough. Clearly, someone’s trying to get you into deep trouble.”
“Was that bunch of prisoners bribed to intentionally hurt me yesterday?” Catherine raised her head and asked all of a sudden.
