Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 340
“Look at you. You used to be so bold, but you’ve been tortured by him so much you’ve become a little mouse.”
Freya was dying of anger. “I’ll tell you the truth. When I asked you to help her with the lawsuit back then, all the words I said were lies. She had nothing to do with it. I did it because if she went to prison, I wouldn’t be able to meet her anymore. She doesn’t know anything at all.”
Catherine rubbed her forehead and watched as Shaun’s expression darkened like ink. She stood in front of him. “Freya did it to save me. It has nothing to do with her, so don’t hurt her.”
Shaun saw how she was acting like a mother hen protecting her chick, and his heart became annoyed and depressed. Did she see him as a devil now?
“Move aside, I’m hungry.”
“Did you not hear me? I said I’m hungry.” Shaun grabbed her hand and sat on the bench.
The table was full of spicy, grilled, and stir-fried dishes. He frowned. “Why isn’t there any food for me?”
She knew that he could not eat spicy food.
Catherine froze. “I thought you wouldn’t eat these.”
“I can’t help it. You like to eat these, so I can only go along with you.” Shaun picked up the fork and glanced at the table. He could only eat the oysters. He did not know if it was because he had not had a good meal in Country F, but after trying the oysters, he found that the taste was unexpectedly good. “Order another serving of oysters.”
Catherine and Freya exchanged glances in disbelief. Was he really just letting it go?
Then, Catherine ordered some non-spicy dishes for Shaun. She started to eat the crayfish with Freya.
The crayfish was delicious, but the shell was too hard to peel.
Shaun really did not understand what was so delicious about this omnivorous crustacean. However, he saw that her little face was showing a rare look of satisfaction so he reached out to take the crayfish from her bowl. “I’ll peel it for you.”
Catherine was so shocked that she choked.
Shaun handed her a glass of water and she gulped down a few mouthfuls before calming down. She said nervously, “No, I’ll do it myself.”
Freya said, “Geez, just let him peel it for you. What’s the point of having men by your side, then? It’s so they can peel crayfish for you.”
Did men have such lowly roles?
Eldest Young Master Hill, who had lived for more than 20 years, was peeling crayfish for the first time in his life. At first, he thought that it would be easy, but he did not expect it to be a technical skill—especially with the claws…
Eldest Young Master Hill gave up on the claws and just let Catherine eat the body.
Catherine felt pained. “Actually… The claws can be eaten too.”
Shaun simply called the waiter over and ordered, “Give me five more servings of crayfish.”
Then, he turned to Catherine and said, “If you’re with me, you don’t need to eat the claws.”
She just felt that there was a lot of flesh in the claws, so it was a shame to waste it.
However, it was really nice eating the body—even more so when another person was peeling it for her.
To the side, Freya, who was eating, suddenly felt like she was third wheeling. God damn it, were they bullying her for being single?
After finishing their meal, Freya made an excuse to slip away first.
Shaun held her until she got into the car. “Where were you planning to go next?”
Catherine was confused. “The movies.”
Shaun raised his brows and called Hadley. “Book the cinema at Northern Sky Mall. I’m going to watch a movie with Catherine.”
