Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 392
“It’s not that big of a deal, really. I don’t manage the company with my looks but with my capability,” Catherine replied half-jokingly. “Alright, let’s move on to discuss the progress of the ongoing projects in various places…”
The meeting ended an hour later.
Catherine returned to her office to find an invitation card from Melanie and Charlie on the desk. They were throwing an engagement ceremony in the Pavilion Intercontinental Hotel tomorrow.
What was Melanie trying to say with the invitation?
Just as she was thinking about this, she received a call from an unfamiliar number. “Elder Sister, have you seen my invitation card?”
“Don’t call me that. I don’t have a younger sister who tried to steal my husband.” Catherine could be confident with the marriage certificate on her side.
“You really have the cheek. Who’s the third party here?”
Melanie almost screamed out of anger but took a deep inhale instead. “Fine. I’ve finally found my happiness. You’re Dad’s daughter no matter what and nothing can change the fact that we share the same blood. I’m sure you’re not going to miss your younger sister’s engagement ceremony right?”
“I’ll definitely be there since you’ve kindly invited me.”
Melanie was startled by the unexpected positive reply. “You’re most welcome. Oh, by the way, I heard about your facial disfigurement. Don’t forget to wear a veil tomorrow. I don’t want you scaring off my guests. I look forward to seeing you.”
She hung up the call after a chuckle.
Catherine finally understood the intention. They were hoping for a chance to ridicule her.
However, she was not too bothered about what these insignificant people thought about her appearance.
Perhaps they would not be the ones feeling disgusted tomorrow.
Elle came to pick her up after work.
“Eldest Young Master is working overtime tonight, so he couldn’t pick you up.”
She explained after Catherine positioned herself in the backseat.
This caught the latter by surprise. She knew Shaun must have other investments even after being dismissed as the president of Hill Corporation. However, she seemed to know nothing at all about his current work affairs.
“Which company is he working in at the moment?”
Elle’s eyes flickered upon hearing the question and she fell into silence.
“It’s fine if you’re unwilling to answer.” Catherine twitched the corners of her lips. “I’m just casually asking.”
She sounded nonchalant but in actuality, there was an unpleasant taste in her mouth.
Perhaps Shaun’s touching confession from when she was hospitalized before had broken the defensive wall built around her fragile heart. Upon learning the two of them were still married, she could not help having expectations of him.
Women could really disappoint themselves sometimes.
A few loving and touching words could make them feel more special than anyone else.
Elle frowned, slightly frustrated. “Eldest Young Master isn’t deliberately hiding things from you. I’m just afraid that you might overthink after hearing the company’s name.”
Catherine looked up as if she had suddenly remembered something. “Is it possible… that the name is related to that woman named Sarah?”
“Young Madam, I’m not sure how to handle your intelligence.”
That was it.
Did that woman really mean so much to him?
Was she so important that her name was his company’s name?
Although the woman in question had already passed away, Catherine still felt a strange feeling in her heart at the thought of this.
“It’s called Shaunarah,” Elle explained, “But the company was established five years ago, before Eldest Young Master met you. I’m sure he wouldn’t use this name if he had started a new company today.”
“Alright.” Catherine turned sideways to look out the window.
Evidently, it was a wordplay of their names, Shaun and Sarah. What a lovely name.
Catherine thought that he probably would not love her this much if that woman named Sarah was still alive.
