Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 315
“Alright, enough of that. Her life has nothing to do with me.”
Shaun started the car and sped off.
With the car traveling like a rocket on the road, Hadley was so scared that he clutched the handle above his head.
Once Shaun arrived at the office, he went upstairs straight away.
Hadley poured a cup of coffee for him. Just as he turned around to leave, Shaun suddenly called out to him, “Stop. What have you found out?”
What a fickle-minded man.
Hadley looked back and reported to him seriously, “The car was tampered with by someone from the Yule family, and it was the gardener’s doing. He received a sum of money from Brody Jarrett, who took charge of the area in Flagstaff City. As far as I know, Brody and Fergus hang out very frequently. After investigating this matter, however, Fergus seems to have nothing to do with it.”
“That’s unsurprising. Given that Fergus has done a lot of bad things, he’s quite experienced in such things.” Shaun raised his coffee cup and blew on it. “What has Joel found out about this matter?”
“He has gotten the car investigated, but the car is already burnt. What’s more, there weren’t any surveillance cameras at the scene. I’m guessing he won’t be able to find out anything,” Hadley said, “He probably wouldn’t expect the Wicks family to be so cruel.”
“Joel is a decent man, but unfortunately, people like him get tricked far too easily.” Shaun scoffed.
“Elder Young Master Hill, should I inform Cath—”
“What’s the point of telling her?” Shaun suddenly tossed the coffee cup on the table. “She’s not the one who’s paying you either. It’ll serve the foolish woman right if she dies.”
Hadley was at a loss for words.
“Get lost.” Shaun flew into a temper.
Hadley was well aware of his grumpiness. He then asked someone to follow up on the matter. Sure enough, he received new updates about it at night.
“Elder Young Master Hill, the Yule family has spread the news that they found out the person who tampered with the car. Now their villa has been sealed off, and even their internet has been disconnected.”
Shaun raised his brows. “Didn’t you say that Joel didn’t find out about what actually happened?”
“Yeah.” Hadley found it a little strange too.
After some thought, Shaun finally understood.
It was just a trap. Joel absolutely would not suspect the Yule family. It was probably Catherine’s idea.
Sure enough, that sneaky little girl was quite clever. No wonder she could easily trick him.
He wondered what to do while smoking a cigarette. Despite holding a grudge against her, he felt a tingling sensation deep down that was getting stronger.
He felt like meeting and kissing her. He wished she could help him relieve his stress.
The second day after Catherine was admitted into the hospital.
At noon, Wesley fed Catherine.
Liam came to visit her. Second Young Master Hill was dressed in a coffee-colored windbreaker and a pair of gray trousers, which were rolled up to show his exquisite ankles. The young masters of the Hill family were so attractive that they could easily become well-known actors in the entertainment industry.
“What brings you here, Second Young Master Hill?” A look of astonishment crossed Catherine’s face. She had only met him once in the Hill household, and they did not even talk to each other at that time. Anyway, he was the one who saved her when she met with an accident the other day.
“After all, I was the one who saved you, so I came to see how you’re doing.” Liam’s eyes swept over Wesley.
Wesley stood up and introduced himself, “Hi, I’m Catherine’s fiancé. Thank you for saving her that night, Second Young Master Hill.”
He looked gentle and humble, while his demeanor was neither overbearing nor self-effacing.
