Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 713
“Why are you panicking? Did you remind Assistant Walker what I told you?”
“You’ll be fine, then. Regardless of how much you pay him, just make sure his lips are sealed. Also, you’d better behave yourself from now on or I won’t be able to save you.”
Sarah gritted her teeth as soon as she ended the call.
Needless to say, Shaun had found out about the matter. Never had she expected that he would be unbothered about her dignity.
In the hospital.
When Catherine was feeding Suzie porridge in her arms, Freya received a call.
After that, Freya said, “There’s good news and bad news. The good news is that the police called and told me that there’s evidence showing that the burglars were hired by someone else. It was Thomas’ assistant who transferred money to their family members.”
Catherine raised her head and said, “As for the bad news, is it that Thomas’ assistant has confessed to the crime?”
“Yeah.” Freya sighed. “It means that Thomas still got away again, but guess who submitted the evidence to the police? It was Shaun! What did you do this morning?”
“I applied some medicine to Shaun’s eyes. I bet he strongly dislikes Thomas now.”
Deep down, Catherine let out a sigh of relief.
In fact, she had taken a bet by going there this morning to kick up a fuss.
She bet that Shaun still had some feelings for her and could no longer tolerate Thomas’ behavior. She went to his place and reminded him that Thomas was directly responsible for the loss of their children three years ago.
Fortunately, she won the bet.
“You’re awesome.” Freya raised her thumb.
“Godmother, was your mouth bitten by a mosquito? It’s swollen.”
Suzie, who was having porridge while nestled in Catherine’s arms, tilted her head and looked at Freya curiously.
Freya immediately blushed with embarrassment. “A dog bit me.”
“The dog must be tall since it could actually bite your mouth,” Suzie said with a grin.
Freya glared at Suzie sulkily with her hands on her hips. “Since you can make fun of me, it means you’re fine. But you were crying and asking for hugs and candy in your mom’s arms just now.”
Suzie pouted and snuggled into Catherine’s arms again. “Mommy, it hurts again.”
“You were badly injured this time. Let me kiss you.” Only after Catherine hugged and kissed her on the cheek did the little kid smile warmly.
After all, her head was severely injured. After having some porridge, Suzie felt drowsy.
In the next few days, Freya was busy helping Catherine clean her house while Catherine took care of Suzie in the hospital. With a large backlog of work, she usually worked while taking care of Suzie.
Lucas stayed in the ward throughout these three days without stepping out of it. He felt that he was responsible for Suzie’s injuries.
When Liam visited them that night, he was upset at their condition.
“You can bring Lucas to the hotel and sleep there. Look at yourselves. You guys have slimmed down.”
“I’m fine.” Catherine would be too worried to leave Suzie alone here.
“Even if you don’t think about yourself, you have to think about Lucas. He doesn’t eat well nor sleep well in the hospital.” Liam gently pinched Suzie’s cheeks. “Suzie, let me accompany you tonight, okay?”
“Sure, sure. I like you the most, Uncle Liam.” Suzie took pity on her mother as well. She immediately said, “Mommy, you can bring Brother home first. I’ll be heartbroken if you tire yourself out.”
