Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 547
“Let’s head upstairs for the treatment,” Shaun said before heading toward the stairs.
Catherine bit her lip as she saw the two silhouettes disappear up the spiral staircase.
Sarah was undoubtedly a sly woman. With a few words, she made it seem like Catherine did not care about Shaun’s condition just because of her jealousy.
Catherine waited in the living room the whole time since the session started.
About 40 minutes later, the sound of objects being smashed and a woman’s screaming suddenly came from upstairs.
She rushed to the source of the commotion right away, only to find that the room was locked from the inside.
“Aunty Yasmine, get the keys,” she ordered without hesitation.
The housekeeper scrambled down the stairs anxiously to get the key. Just when she was about to unlock the door, it opened from the inside. Shaun, who was only wearing long pants, looked flustered as he rushed out of the room while carrying Sarah in his arms. The woman’s head was bleeding and there was a rope b**n around her neck.
“What happened?” Catherine asked, shocked.
Shaun was about to explain when Sarah suddenly groaned in pain.
“It’s fine. I’ll bring you to the hospital now.” He gently comforted her. Without even looking at Catherine, he rushed out of the house with Sarah still in his arms.
The massive villa suddenly turned pin-drop silent. Catherine felt a shudder running down her spine.
She looked inside the messy room. The tables and chairs had been kicked over. She had seen him before when he had a relapse. He must be feeling extremely bad after regaining his consciousness only to find he had harmed Sarah.
“Young Madam…” Aunty Yasmine looked at her worriedly.
“I’m fine. Find out which hospital she’s being sent to. I’ll go visit her,” Catherine said.
20 minutes later, she was told that they were at Chester’s hospital.
Elle dropped her off right away.
Catherine heard Shaun’s tender voice as soon as she approached the door. “Stay still.”
“It’s fine. It’s just a minor scratch.”
“A minor scratch? I know how aggressive I can be during a relapse. Why didn’t you tell me beforehand that the treatment might be dangerous?”
“It doesn’t matter. I don’t mind getting slightly hurt if it means curing your condition.”
“Alright, you don’t have to say anything. I don’t deserve you but I hope you can have a normal life. Studying medicine is no fun but you’re the motivation that kept me going forward. Please let me cure your illness. I want you to have a happy life.”
“I’m sorry… Sarah…”
The man’s deep voice was filled with regret and frustration.
Catherine could not hear another word of it. She was about to push the door open when a hand suddenly pulled her away.
She looked over her shoulder to find Rodney’s indifferent face staring at her. “Let’s chat.”
He led her to a quiet corridor and lit up a cigarette before sitting on the steps. The smoke that escaped his lips highlighted the loneliness in his eyes.
“If you’re asking me to step down from my position for Sarah, then I’m sorry, but I’ll not agree to that,” Catherine said coldly.
“You must’ve heard it earlier. Sarah has not stopped loving Shaun and he still cares about her,” Rodney replied, sounding annoyed. “But things turned out this way because of you.”
