Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 440
The light went out from Shaun’s eyes at the sound of that. “Is it a coincidence that she’s here today?”
“Looks like it. The candidates handpicked by the hospital’s management are the best-performing nurses as of current.”
He nodded upon hearing that, the defenses in his heart vanishing. “Who’s the head of the Neeson family now?”
The corners of his lips twitched into a sarcastic smile. “She’s not grateful after stealing someone else’s house. Get the word out not to provide our microchips to the Neeson family.”
“Um… Okay.” Hadley parted his lips but did not say anything else.
Catherine left work earlier today. She heard noises coming from the basketball court the second she stepped out of the car.
She walked over just in time to see Shaun raising his arms to make a beautiful three-point field goal. She had no idea how long he had been playing basketball. The back of his white T-shirt was slightly damp yet his face revealed a sunny disposition.
The sight of him like this took her breath away.
When she was still in school, Ethan was the only basketball player she adored. However, looking at Shaun right at this moment, she finally knew what was the real charm of an athlete.
A series of applause came from the other side of the basketball court. It was only then that she noticed the woman who looked almost the same age as her dressed in a pair of basic jeans and a white top. Her glossy dark hair was up in a ponytail.
“Impressive, Eldest Young Master Hill.” The woman walked over with a bottle of water and a towel. “You’ve been playing for 40 minutes. It’s time to rest.”
“Okay.” He received the bottle and started gulping down its contents.
The rays of the setting sun shone down on both of them. That particular scene sort of stung Catherine’s eyes.
“Shaunny…” she called out to the man before quickly walking over.
Shaun looked over his shoulder and a smile spread across his charming face. “Babe, you’re home early today.”
“I came home early for fear that you were getting bored at home alone.” She looked closely at the other woman. The latter was good-looking but nothing compared to her previous self. Even Melanie was prettier in comparison.
Catherine felt relieved.
After falling in love with someone, a person would become petty and overly worried almost by instinct. It seemed like she was no different too.
“Hello, Young Madam. I’m the nurse sent over by the hospital to look after Eldest Young Master Hill,” Shelly introduced herself with a smile.
“Oh, hello.” Catherine was taken aback. For some reason, she felt as if she had seen those eyes before but could not specify where or when.
“It’s my honor to look after Eldest Young Master Hill. I hope he can recover as soon as possible.” Shelly behaved professionally.
“Let’s go, I’m heading upstairs for a shower.” Shaun draped an arm over Catherine’s shoulder.
“Eldest Young Master Hill, you should rest for half an hour after exercising before taking a shower,” Shelley reminded him.
“Alright…” He hesitated before agreeing.
Catherine was rather surprised.
He removed his T-shirt after getting upstairs. She grabbed a towel and patted his back dry. “How come you’re playing basketball out of the blue?”
“Shelley Langley said an appropriate amount of exercise can help the recovery and also improve sleep quality at night.”
“Shelley Langley?” A shudder passed through her spine.
What a coincidence! He used to have an ex-girlfriend with the middle name Langley too.
“Yup, what’s the matter?” He turned around to look at her.
