Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 555
Sarah glanced at Catherine who had a cold expression and there was a gleam in her eyes. She made herself look like an understanding friend. “Let’s go sing some songs.”
Catherine shot a speechless glance at those two women.
A pretentious btch and a fake btch.
They were a match made in heaven.
If only she knew, she would have insisted on not coming.
Soon, music started to play in the private room. Catherine recognized the melody instantly. It was Bruno Mars’ ‘Count on Me’.
Freya, Cindy, and she had often sung that song in the past.
At that moment, Cindy took a microphone and passed it to her in front of everybody. She even said into her microphone, “Cathy, let’s sing together. We were the best at singing this song. I know I made some mistakes before and I don’t know what else to say besides I’m sorry. But I really miss the sisterhood between us. If it weren’t for your encouragement, I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am today in the entertainment industry. I miss you a lot. I really do..”
When she said the last three words, she even choked up a little.
Catherine was in a daze for a moment, but she quickly found it funny.
Would Cindy even feel regretful? She had done so many things that added insult to injury back then.
“Cindy, you want to act, but I’m not in the mood to act with you,” Catherine mocked.
Chester put down his glass. A hint of displeasure flashed through his eyes.
Rodney could not tolerate her any longer and said, “Catherine, Cindy is sincerely apologizing to you. Do you have to be like this? Do you think that you’re so great just because you’re Shaun’s wife?”
Sarah sighed. “Actually, I can understand the feeling of having a misunderstanding with your friend. It’s fate to be able to meet each other again when you have so many years of friendship. I’m rather envious of friendships that were established during schooling days. They’re pure, clean, and untainted. Don’t regret it only after you lose it.”
Catherine was speechless.
Every one of the people present was looking at her with a repulsive expression as if she was a narrow-minded and evil person.
After a short while, she laughed. “This is my first time knowing that a victim will be in the wrong for not forgiving others even if he or she was hurt badly before. So this is what they call emotional blackmail?”
She put down the pool cue. “I’m not playing anymore. I see that I’m not welcome here. I’ll not ruin everyone’s mood.”
She turned around and left after she spoke. Shaun grabbed her wrist hastily. “Cathy…”
“Shaun, let her leave. I’ve had enough. She’s been so sarcastic ever since she appeared. Didn’t everyone have a good time when you didn’t bring her along before?” Rodney said in a harsh tone.
Catherine looked back and shot an icy glance at him. “To be honest, looking at brainless guys like you all is quite tiring for me too.”
At that moment, Chester’s expression changed as well. He said coldly, “Shaun, send her back. Don’t bring her along next time.”
“Just nice. I’m not interested in joining again either.” Catherine flung Shaun’s hand away and walked off.
Shaun glared at Chester and Rodney angrily before going after her.
In the private room, Cindy had an anxious and regretful look on her face. “It’s my fault. If I hadn’t invited Cathy to sing, this wouldn’t have happened.”
“It’s not your fault. She’s the annoying one in the first place,” Rodney said.
Clank! Chase suddenly threw the pool cue on the table. “You guys enjoy yourselves. I’m leaving.”
“You’re leaving now?” Rodney said immediately, “We’re here to welcome you tonight.”
“There’s no point.” Chase put his hands in his pockets and walked to the door. He suddenly turned back and looked at Cindy. “What Rin said was right. This is the first time I saw that emotional blackmail could be done this way. Rodney and Chester weren’t in Melbourne then. They don’t understand your character at all. If it were me, I wouldn’t forgive you for the things you’ve done either. Chester, you made a bad choice this time.”
He left immediately after speaking.
Chester, who was left behind, had an expression as dark as ink. Cindy started feeling jittery as well.
After walking out of the clubhouse, Catherine took a deep breath.
As expected, whenever she faced Shaun and his friends, she would feel depressed.
