Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 270
“No. I’ve never had the intention of gaining anything from the Yule family.” Catherine’s voice was filled with weariness. “Anyway, I have to head to Canberra this time. I…”
“Go ahead.” Wesley gently placed his hand above the back of her hand. “Don’t worry about me. The caregiver will be looking after me.”
“Thank you.” In fact, Catherine was very touched. Wesley and Shaun were very different. Wesley was always gentle and tolerant of her.
In contrast, Shaun was overbearing and arrogant. She often had to tolerate his behavior. Whenever she wanted to do something, she had to pull out all the stops to persuade him in order to get his approval.
She found it tiring to get along with Shaun before this. She also disliked the fact that he had even gotten someone to keep a watchful eye on her.
Nevertheless, she somehow had difficulty getting used to the current circumstances.
“What’s on your mind?”
The woman standing in front of him suddenly spaced out. Wesley’s eyes flashed with gloominess, and he tightened his grip on her hand.
Catherine regained her senses at that moment, wondering what reminded her of Shaun again. “I was thinking that the Yule family is large, and it’s possibly a dangerous place to be…”
Wesley smiled faintly. “Don’t be scared. I’ll keep you company in Canberra later. You won’t be alone in that case. Actually, I just got back from overseas last year and have been planning to develop my business in Canberra. When a new economic zone was developed there two years ago, I had already purchased a piece of land to expand the factory.”
Catherine was dumbfounded and full of admiration for him. “I didn’t expect that you’re such a forward thinker.”
“The best is having the foresight to fall for you.” Wesley chuckled while pinching the tip of her nose.
Catherine froze. Shaun used to pinch her this way, but being pinched by Wesley made her feel uncomfortable and even a little resistant.
“It’s already quite late. I’m going back to my room first.” A slight smile flitted across her face. “Rest early after you take your medicine.”
She turned around, only to discover that he had yet to let go of her hand.
She looked back and met Wesley’s loving, gentle eyes. “Cathy, can you stay here tonight? Don’t worry, I won’t do anything to you as I still haven’t recovered from my injuries.”
“…Sorry, Wesley. I’ve just ended a marriage, so I’m still not used to it. Give me some time.” Catherine subconsciously rejected him.
It was easy to get engaged to Wesley. However, at the thought of lying on the same bed as him, she could not bring herself to do it.
Wesley’s eyes darkened, but he forced a smile. “Okay.”
Three days later.
Catherine and Joel headed to Melbourne Airport.
Wesley personally sent them to the airport. “Wait for me, Cathy. I’ll go and meet you there once I recover.”
“Alright. Let’s keep in touch through calls.”
After waving her hand, Catherine boarded the plane together with Joel.
Joel had been observing Wesley on his way to the airport. He found Wesley quite familiar, but he did not have much of an impression of him after some careful thought.
In Joel’s eyes, it was a pity that his daughter already had a fiancé at such a young age. Indeed, Wesley was amazing considering how young and promising he was. When compared to the Yule family, however, his status was considered slightly low. “Did he really lose a kidney to save you?”
“Yeah. Without him, I could’ve died. If you don’t believe me, go and look into it,” Catherine whispered, “Don’t arrange a blind date for me when we’re in Canberra. I’m not interested.”
Upon hearing her words, Joel burst out laughing. Then, he sighed.
“I won’t intervene in the matters regarding your marriage. Back then, I was forced by my parents to marry someone I didn’t want to. With that, I began living years of life gloomily. What matters most is your happiness. Wesley’s average status isn’t an issue as I can always lend him a hand. His capability coupled with my assistance will make him as brilliant as those youngsters from the wealthy families in Canberra.”
