Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 395
“But… if you’re prepared to face the public with me, then I’ll attend all future socializing events while holding you close.”
Shaun emphasized each word with seriousness as if he was saying his vows in the church.
Catherine felt something moved.
She was only a normal woman. She could not resist feeling touched despite knowing there was someone else in his heart.
Especially when those sweet whispers came out from the mouth of this ridiculously handsome man. Right at that moment, the bewildering attractiveness he exuded swept through her senses.
“It seems like I’ll have to prove my love to you with actions.”
His thin lips curled into an enigmatic smile before he kissed her lips.
“No…” She was flustered upon realizing what he was about to do.
She had been traumatized since that first night.
“Good girl, you’re such a Nervous Nellie so I must give you some sense of security.” He held her thin waist closer.
Her cheeks were flushed red.
How could he say those words with such confidence?
“I promise I’ll never hurt you again.”
She found herself d******g in his gentle voice.
The following day.
Shaun stepped out of the bathroom after getting dressed to find Catherine still lying on the bed. Her lips looked soft and supple. She kept her eyes closed, reluctant to look at him.
“Lazy piggy, the sun’s out and it’s time to wake up. The stylist will be here later with the evening gown.”
He softly gave her a peck on her forehead.
“You’re the lazy pig,” she opened her eyes and scolded back.
However, her eyes were overflowing with affection.
He chuckled. Although her appearance was different, her eyes were still as seductive as before.
“Darling, let me help you get dressed.”
The man walked toward the wardrobe.
“I don’t want your help. I can do it myself.” She pushed him out of the room. In the dressing room, she was distracted upon seeing those brilliant eyes in the mirror.
This man had proved with his actions last night that he did not mind her facial disfigurement.
She had to admit that she found a new sense of peace after last night.
The stylist showed up with an off-shoulder light blue evening gown.
It looked simple on its own but it completely transformed Catherine. The dress was covered with tiny diamonds that resembled stars falling from the sky. She walked out of the dressing room like a princess from a faraway castle, every step of hers alluring yet elegant.
The stylist also styled her hair into big wavy curls with the front bangs covering half of her face. Her round eyes looked especially lively beneath the curls.
Her milky smooth fair shoulders were exposed by the off-shoulder dress, looking impeccable.
“Young Madam, you looked remarkable today. This evening gown was designed by BonnyKing, the best designer from Country F. Not only does it cost more than 50 million, but it’s also the only one in the entire world.”
Catherine was slightly surprised. She did not expect the gown to be of such background.
“I heard Miss Yule was planning to wear this for her engagement ceremony but it’s not something you can simply buy with money,” the stylist said with a smile. “You’ll definitely be the center of attention in the ceremony tonight.”
Honestly, Catherine was impressed with Shaun’s effort.
