Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 344
Melanie suddenly remembered that there had been a woman hiding in his mansion the other day. She had someone investigate it afterward but could not find anything out.
“Oh, I suddenly remembered, I told him to pluck some for Queenie before this.” Old Madam Hill slapped her head. “I have such a bad memory.”
“Oh, so that’s it.” Melanie looked a little better.
At 7:30 p.m., the butler suddenly came over with a pile of expensive items after dinner.
Old Master Hill said, “When you send Melanie back later, send these things to the Yule family as well. Melanie and you will get your marriage license tomorrow.”
Melanie immediately blushed shyly and looked at Shaun expectantly, but he merely put down his cutlery and asked coldly, “When did I agree to get married?”
“If you don’t get married now, how long are you planning to drag it out?”
Old Master Hill rarely got angry, but this time, he raised his voice. “That’s right, you’ve brought back Liam safely, but now there are rumors in the outside world saying that you want to kill your own brother. Melanie is the Yules’ daughter, and the Yule family is one of the top ten outstanding families in the country. They’re respected by people, so by marrying the family’s daughter and showing off your love, you can regain your reputation.”
Shaun looked like he had heard a joke. A low chuckle spilled out of his throat. “With my ability and skill, do I still need to put on a show?”
Old Madam Hill said, “With how developed the internet is now, who wouldn’t want to?”
“I don’t care.” Shaun stood up. “If you think I have a bad reputation, then let Liam sit in the president’s seat. I have the power and authority, so I don’t care what others say.”
“Are you trying to drive me to my grave?” Old Master Hill slapped the table in fury.
“Your body is very tough, so you won’t die.” Shaun elegantly wiped his lips and went upstairs. Two minutes later, he carried the basket of strawberries and headed toward the door.
Melanie’s face was paper-white, and Old Madam Hill said angrily, “Stop. Send Melanie back home.”
There was a flash in Shaun’s eyes when he agreed.
Melanie ran over with joy and followed him out the door, getting into his car.
Before she could fasten her seatbelt, the sports car shot out like a rocket.
Shaun seemed to be driving a slingshot instead of a car, drifting all the way. The car reached a speed of almost 200km per hour, scaring Melanie so much that she screamed all the way.
After finally reaching the door of the Yule family’s villa, Shaun slammed on the brakes and Melanie vomited immediately after getting out of the car.
Shaun elegantly stepped out of the car and handed her a tissue.
Melanie was pleasantly surprised and took it, but the next second, she heard his cool voice ringing in her ears. “If I were you, I’d take the initiative to leave now.”
“What do you mean?” Melanie was a little uneasy.
Shaun lit a cigarette and bit into it while sucking in a breath. The action was beautiful, but his eyes were indifferent. “Can’t you see it? I’m not interested in you. You can tell the others that you don’t think we’re suitable, so you took the initiative to break up with me.”
“I don’t believe you.” Melanie almost cried. “Eldest Young Master Hill, you like me. Otherwise, why did you dance with me and come to my house for dinner?”
“You’re blind.” Shaun directly spat out the two words at her.
Melanie almost broke down. How could he humiliate her like this? “I don’t want to break up. Eldest Young Master Hill, I’ve liked you for a long time. I can’t live without you.”
“Looks like you don’t agree.” Shaun raised his brows.
Melanie grabbed his sleeve and said pitifully, “Eldest Young Master Hill, I know you have another woman outside. I can turn a blind eye to it. Grandpa and Grandma Hill also like me and will be happy if we get married. Your reputation is damaged now, so if word about you cheating were to spread now…”
“You’re threatening me?” Shaun grabbed her chin.
