Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 334
Shaun’s hand froze in mid-air, and his mouth was full of bitterness. He finally knew the taste of reaping what one sowed.
What on earth had he done to reduce a person to this state?
The Catherine from before was bright and delicate, full of confidence.
He often saw how narcissistic she was in front of a mirror, as though she believed herself to be the most beautiful person in the world.
He missed that cute and mischievous girl.
“Come out. Don’t hide under the covers. You’ll suffocate.” He reached out to yank the covers away but saw her biting her fingers hard. Her face was streaked with tears.
“Alright, I’ll go out. I’ll ask someone to bring you some food since you haven’t eaten all night.”
Shaun sighed and turned to leave.
Before long, a nurse entered.
When Catherine saw that Shaun had left, the fear in her heart dissipated a little, but her body still hurt badly. She had no appetite at all and slept after taking a few bites.
When she woke up the next day, the sky was already bright.
Shaun stood in front of the window and was on the phone, speaking in a low voice.
“I’m not going to the company today. Cancel the meeting.”
“But Deputy Chairman Hill will be attending today’s meeting—”
“I said cancel it, so cancel it.”
Shaun turned around and saw her doe-like eyes.
Catherine flinched away. Shaun walked over to the bed and said with a gentle tone, “The doctor told me that your first time was the day before yesterday. I misunderstood you before. I promise I’ll never act the way I did yesterday again. Can you forgive me?”
Catherine was stunned. No wonder he was suddenly so gentle to her. She had thought that he finally found his conscience.
It turned out that it was because the doctor had told him. It was funny how there had never been any trust between the two of them.
“Okay.” She nodded.
‘You’re Eldest Young Master Hill. Who would dare not to forgive you? Everyone can be manipulated by you at will.’
“Don’t you have anything else to say to me?” Shaun was somewhat lost. “You can scold me.”
Scold him? Who would dare to scold him? She scolded him yesterday and was left barely alive.
Shaun smiled bitterly but took it slow. This time, he would use his own efforts to move her heart and rid her fear.
In the afternoon, Shaun completed the discharge formalities and personally took her back to New Metropolis Park.
It had been more than a year since the mansion was renovated, and it was the first time someone was living in it.
In the morning, he told Hadley to prepare a lot of home supplies and even bought a whole cabinet full of women’s apparel.
The car stopped at the parking lot, and Shaun bent down to pick her up.
Catherine let him move her around obediently. What was important for her now was to endure. When she found out about Sheryl Jones’ cause of d***h and got revenge, she would leave Canberra. She did not need Hudson anymore. What she wanted was freedom.
Shaun carried her all the way to the sofa and turned on the television for her, but it was obvious that he had never used a TV before since he failed to switch it on even after a long time.
“Stop that. It’s getting late, so I’ll make dinner.” Catherine endured the pain and got up.
“How can you cook like this? Don’t move.” Shaun stopped her and held her, so she sat back down.
“Cooking for you is my duty.” Catherine was obedient like a little maid. “What will you eat if I don’t cook?”
Shaun was upset. In the past, he wanted nothing more than for her to be this obedient, but now that she was, he only felt like his chest was suffocating.
