Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 63
Could Catherine get drunk before Shaun did?
Amid her distress, Shaun gave her a call. “Where are you?”
“In the office.”
“Send me your address. I’ll pick you up downstairs in 20 minutes. You’ll accompany me to a birthday banquet.”
Here came the opportunity.
Catherine’s eyes sparkled, but she was subsequently filled with dissatisfaction. “You didn’t want to attend my grandma’s birthday banquet, so why should I accompany you this time?”
“If you’re not willing to come with me, that’s fine. I’ll look for someone else…”
Just as Shaun was about to hang up, Catherine gave in and saved the situation. “I’m coming, I’m coming. In the love arena, it’s always the person who falls in love first who loses. I’m doomed to completely lose my heart to you. How brilliant you are.”
With that, she took the thermos flask and sipped on her coffee. Even she was impressed by her own flirting skills.
A few seconds later, Shaun’s voice came from the other end. “My phone is connected to the car via Bluetooth, and Chase is seated beside me.”
Splat! Catherine spat out the coffee in her mouth onto the computer screen.
Chase’s voice subsequently sounded, “Not bad, Sister-in-law. I couldn’t tell that you can flirt so well. No wonder Shaun—”
The call was hung up straight away.
Catherine lay on the table, feeling embarrassed to death.
She dawdled when packing her things and went downstairs afterward. At that time, she received a call from Freya.
“How did things go? Did you manage to progress things with your husband to a point of no return last night?”
“No, but he asked me to accompany him to a birthday banquet tonight. I think this is the chance. Having said that, when he goes out for social activities at night, I’ve never seen him get drunk…”
Catherine sighed, knowing that Shaun was a very sensible person.
“Birthday banquet?” Freya was momentarily stunned. “Is it Chase’s grandpa’s 80th birthday? I want to come along too.”
“I think so. Shaun is going to have fun with Chase.”
“That’ll be great. I’ll get some people to drink with Shaun and try to get him drunk. If that doesn’t work, I’ll bring some drugs…”
“Hehe. Anyway, I’ll definitely send him to your bed for the sake of your plan to become Ethan’s aunt.”
Catherine took a long, deep breath. Everything was being planned so abruptly that she had not mentally braced herself for it.
However, Freya had begun to help her get everything ready in excitement.
Catherine waited anxiously by the road. Damn, was she supposed to prepare anything?
Furthermore, she had no experience with this sort of stuff. When Shaun became drunk, she could not possibly be left alone with him.
A few honks sounded. Lost in thought, she did not hear the honks.
Shaun stared at the woman who was spacing out and looking embarrassed. She had her face covered while she stood by the road. He was totally at a loss for words.
He was not sure what was in her mind either. Was she deaf?
Chase squinted his eyes and smiled. “Shaun, I somehow feel that your wife is thinking about something dirty, and you’re most probably in her thoughts…”
“She’s not you, okay.” Shaun gave him an icy stare, even though he was a little skeptical about it.
“Honestly, the more I look at Sister-in-law, the more I find her cute. In fact, I live in the same city as her, but you somehow got her first…”
Before Chase could finish his sentence, a cold air surrounded him.
Shaun warned him impassively, “Don’t get any ideas about her. She’s not someone you can randomly fool around with.”
After that, he opened the door and got out of the car. He walked directly toward Catherine.
