Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 434
“Top three? That’s very unlikely.” Old Master Hill was taken aback.
“You can check the Campos family’s financial statement for this year. The Campos family usually keeps a low profile and behaves modestly. After Liam started managing the company, he signed an agreement with the Campos family that provides five benefits to them. As if the Campos family isn’t powerful enough.”
The news came as a blow to Old Master Hill.
“Once the Hill family gets into deep waters, the Campos family is sure to be the first one who can’t wait to take charge of the company. If I own Hill Corporation, the Hill family’s status will never change. Anyway, it’s up to you. Even if you don’t plan to let me take over the company, I can still retain my status in Australia. In that case, the Hill family’s situation will have nothing to do with me…”
“But your illness…”
“If you don’t believe me, it’s fine. I’m busy, and I have to hang up now…”
With that, Shaun was about to hang up the call. Just then, Old Master Hill immediately answered, “Okay, I’m already old. I can’t beat the youths. I’ll let you take over Hill Corporation, but I hope that you’ll manage it well. Your aunt… She has offended you, and I’m not expecting you to forgive her either. Having said that, don’t go too far. After all, we’re family.”
“Grandpa, I always adhere to the principle of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.”
“You’re not in a position to bargain with me anymore.”
After Shaun ended the call, his eyes revealed endless indifference.
Catherine disliked his stony expression. She fell into his arms and hugged him tightly. Then, she changed the subject. “Did the Campos family really make it into the top three wealthiest families in Australia with their property?”
“What do you think?” The indifference in his eyes slowly faded and was replaced with gentleness.
“That’s quite unbelievable. The Campos family has always kept a low profile. I was under the impression that it would be either the Jewell family or the Snow family that could make it into the top three.”
“Yeah. The Campos family has been hiding very well. If it hadn’t been for Charlie’s grand wedding this time, I wouldn’t have investigated his family’s background,” Shaun said thoughtfully, “The Campos family is complicated. I’m afraid that my stepfather isn’t as simple as he seems.
Catherine was dumbfounded. “I’ve seen Mason twice. He gives me the impression that he’s gentle and friendly. Rumor has it that he’s been devoting his attention to art and music and is not at all interested in his family’s property and authority.”
“I used to think so too, but how could the Campos family possibly arrive at this state if he wasn’t interested? I reckon he’s trying to divert our attention away.” Shaun was lost in thought.
Catherine was struck by an idea. “Since it was the Campos family who schemed against you with the photos, could this matter be related to Mason?”
Deep down, Shaun was slightly distressed. He lowered his head and kissed her on the lips right away. “I shall put all the distress behind me for now. Let’s do something fun…”
The Hill family’s manor.
Old Master Hill held the phone while sitting on a wooden chair, his eyes expressing a complicated feeling.
“So how did your conversation with Shaun go?” Old Madam Hill poured a cup of coffee for him. “Actually, there’s no point arguing about it. He’s a member of the Hill family, after all. When I watched the video of the interrogation that took place 20 years ago, I felt upset. Anyway, we owe him too much. What’s more, it was our own family who exposed those photos…”
“Who do you think did that?” Old Master Hill asked out of the blue.
“During the press conference, Catherine claimed that it was the Campos family, so I guess it was… Liam.” Old Madam Hill sighed in despair.
