Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 261
Catherine had initially approached Shaun with impure intentions. After that, she lied to him again and again in order to get out of jail.
Now that her lies were exposed, their relationship was just like a bubble that would burst at the touch of it.
Catherine could not fall asleep the entire night.
She got up early and prepared breakfast for Shaun.
Perhaps it would be the last breakfast she made for Shaun.
“Why did you get up so early? It’s only 6:30 a.m.” Aunty Linda entered the kitchen while yawning. Upon noticing Catherine’s pale face, she was stunned. “Didn’t you sleep last night? You don’t look so well.”
“Aunty Linda, these are the recipes I wrote last night.” Catherine handed the booklet to her. “These are some of Shaun’s favorite dishes. He’s quite picky, so I might need to trouble you to cook for him in the future.”
“What do you mean?” Aunty Linda was shocked. She was aware that both of them had been in a conflict recently, but conflicts were common between couples. “Quickly keep it away. Young Master Hill likes your cooking. No matter how well I cook, he won’t want to eat my food.”
“Next time… There’s probably no more next time.” Catherine gave a self-deprecating laugh. By the look of things at this point, she did not dare to anticipate that she could continue to stay in the house.
Even if she personally told Shaun that she was in love with him, he would not believe it either. He would just think that she was interested in him all because of his identity.
What was more, they had lost faith in each other. If they remained together, they might not be able to live happily.
“Don’t talk nonsense.” Aunty Linda refused to accept the booklet. With that, she turned around and left.
Catherine had no choice but to place it on the kitchen cabinet with the belief that Aunty Linda would notice it.
This morning, she put a lot of effort into preparing breakfast. The menu included churros, cinnamon rolls, and pancakes.
Today’s breakfast was similar to the first meal they had when they started living together.
At 8:00 a.m., Shaun came downstairs dressed in a black turtleneck sweater and a pair of black trousers. With his tall figure, he never failed to look like a celebrity who shone and exuded brilliance regardless of what he wore.
However, his stony and handsome face did not carry a trace of warmth. His black eyes were as icy as the North Pole, making one shudder.
Aunty Linda wanted them to reconcile, so she smiled and said, “Young Master Hill, Madam woke up as early as 6:00 a.m. to prepare breakfast for you. She didn’t even let me help her. Look at her cooking—”
“Aunty Linda, carry on with what you need to do first,” Shaun interrupted her sentence.
Aunty Linda sighed. She had no choice but to walk away.
The villa’s living room was left with the two of them. Fudge and her kittens were playing on the couch.
Seeing them playing happily, Catherine was filled with admiration. It felt better to be a cat than a woman, considering the carefree life of a cat.
Shaun tossed a document on the coffee table.
The words ‘Divorce Agreement’ written on it pierced Catherine’s eyes.
She inhaled gently, but the pain could still be felt.
Indeed, they were still a married couple.
When the photos of Wesley and her were exposed before this, he had not mentioned his intention to separate from her or divorce her…
“Sign it. I’ll ask someone to deal with the matter regarding our divorce.” Shaun looked away. The longer he looked at her hypocritical face, the more it reminded him of how she had tricked him like a fool.
Last night, he had spent the whole night thinking of numerous tactics, based on his experience, to take revenge on her.
Suddenly, he was fed up after those cruel tactics flashed across his head one by one.
He did not feel like living such a life anymore. Since it was just a mistake, he wanted to get everything back to how it was before this. After all, she was merely a passerby whom he did not find worth cherishing.
Catherine slowly lifted the document and flipped through it. When Shaun heard her flipping through the document, he frowned sarcastically. “When we got married, I promised to make it up to you after we divorce, and I meant it. But now I don’t feel like paying you a single cent. You should feel fortunate that I’m not teaching a woman like you a lesson. You’d better not go too far.”
“I’ve never aimed for your money…” Catherine gave a bitter laugh. It turned out that he perceived her so nastily deep down.
