Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 278
Catherine did not bother to watch the scene as she found it disgusting.
Why had she fallen for such a man previously? He actually took a fancy to a woman like Melanie!
When it was finally time for dinner, Catherine said bluntly, “As an illegitimate daughter, I have no right to eat with Elder Young Master Hill. I’ll have my dinner in the kitchen.”
This time, she immediately headed to the kitchen before anyone could speak.
Shaun pulled a long face while Melanie conceitedly said, “It’s good that she is self-aware.”
Although Joel was gnashing his teeth, he did not feel like saying a word.
The chef had spent the whole day preparing the dinner as instructed by Nicola. However, Shaun stopped eating after having two mouthfuls of food.
Ever since he broke up with Catherine, he had not had a hearty meal. He always found himself hungry.
“Elder Young Master Hill, are these dishes not tasty enough to satisfy your tastebuds?” Nicola asked cautiously.
“I’m full as I had some fruits and nuts just now. You guys carry on with your dinner. I’m going to the bathroom.”
Once he finished speaking, he headed to the kitchen.
It was necessary to walk past the kitchen to head to the bathroom. When he entered the kitchen, he saw Catherine enjoying her food at the small table.
She could actually eat so much despite seeing him with another woman.
Shaun somehow felt anger boiling within him. He strode toward her with indifference and teased her, “I’m sure you never had such a great meal in Melbourne. Look at yourself. It seems as if you’ve starved your entire life.”
Catherine lifted her head and stared at his nasty face. She had a lump in her throat. “Yeah, I’ve been starving my whole life.”
As she was speaking, she purposely spat the rice onto his face.
“Catherine, you’re asking for d***h.” Shaun’s face flushed with anger. Her saliva and rice were all over his face and body. He quickly used his hands to wipe them away with a look of disgust.
“Sorry. As I’m from the countryside, I’m rude and uncultured. My parents never taught me any manners.” Catherine grinned. “Elder Young Master Hill, given your high rank, you won’t sink to my level, right?”
Shaun flew into a rage. “Catherine, you get a lot of pleasure from acting, huh? I’m warning you now, get out of Canberra right away. I’m disgusted by your face.”
He casually uttered every word that felt like a knife cutting her flesh.
The more it hurt Catherine, the more brightly she smiled. “I’m afraid you don’t have the right to decide this, Elder Young Master Hill. After all, you’re not the prime minister of Australia.”
“Are you under the impression that I don’t know the prime minister?” Shaun laughed wildly. “It’s an easy task anyway.”
Catherine was momentarily stunned, and her brows furrowed. “Why should I leave? Since you find me disgusting, that’s your problem. It has nothing to do with me. I’m not actually disgusting, I just enjoy my food.”
How Shaun wished to tear her thick face apart. Back then, he was tricked by her all because of that face.
“Elder Young Master Hill, have you gone to the bathroom yet? What are you guys doing here?”
Melanie came in after finishing her food swiftly. She saw Shaun and Catherine chatting upon walking over. As both of them were dressed in gray clothes, they looked like a couple in their matching outfits.
She quickly clutched Shaun’s arm, acting as if she was afraid that her man would be snatched away.
Shaun raised his brows, his eyes flashing with grimness. He then gave a smile. “I wanted to go to the bathroom, but she stopped me and tried to seduce me.”
“What?” Melanie was so furious that her eyes nearly popped out of her head. “Catherine, you’re as shameless as your mom!”
