Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 1069
Catherine hung up the call.
By the time she arrived at the Yule family’s villa, it was already eight-ish at night. Wesley was telling the two children a story with a gentle look and hoarse voice. He looked like a good father.
At the sight of this, a twinge of guilt crept up Catherine’s mind. She had actually suspected him. That was really too much.
Only after Wesley finished the story did he notice her. “You’re back.”
Joel glared at Catherine. “You’re Suzie and Lucas’ mom, but you always come home late. Even Wesley is doing a better job at being a parent than you.”
“I’ll reflect on myself and won’t do it again,” Catherine apologized sincerely.
“It doesn’t matter. You can carry on with your work. I’ll help you take care of your children at home, ” Wesley said with a smile.
Looking at him, Catherine decided on something deep down.
At night, Catherine kept Suzie and Lucas company as they slept. Suddenly, Suzie said, “Mommy,
Granny called me today and said she misses me. Great-grandpa and Great-grandma miss me too. I feel like… staying there for some time.”
“What’s so nice about staying there?” Lucas asked grumpily.
Suzie pouted without saying anything else. Catherine touched her head. “Alright.”
If the Hill family were treating Suzie out of the kindness of their hearts, Catherine did not mind Suzie having more family members.
Lucas snorted with annoyance. He turned to the other side with his back facing them.
“My scummy dad said he’ll pick me up tomorrow.” Catherine was stunned but she nodded.
7:00 a.m. the next day.
The security guard said that Shaun was at the gate o f the Yule family’s villa.
Catherine helped Suzie carry her bag. Then, she held her hand and walked her out.
Wearing a shirt under a gray vest, Shaun was standing at the gate under a tree. He was holding a cigarette in one hand while the other hand was stuck into his trousers’ pocket.
He watched Catherine come out of the villa.
When he looked at her, his deep -set eyes reddened slightly. Catherine wondered if the smoke had irritated his eyes.
He said in a hoarse voice, “Suzie, I came to pick you up.”
Suzie nodded. “Uncle Shaun, quit smoking. Smoking is bad for your health.”
“Okay, I won’t smoke anymore.” Shaun opened the door of the car beside him and seated her.“ I’ll be sending you to Granny’s place.”
“Suzie, you can call me if there’s anything, alright?” Catherine reminded Suzie concernedly.
“Okay, I’ll be fine. I’m already a grown-up.” Suzie pouted as she could not bear to part with her mom.
After Shaun closed the door, Catherine waved at Suzie through the window. She turned around to return to the Yule family’s villa.
“I understand now. I was hypnotized by Sarah three years ago.”
Staring at Catherine’s back, Shaun suddenly said in a disheartened tone, “I went to Melbourne recently and found Aunty Linda. I learned a lot of things from her. We used to be… a very loving couple.”
“… Oh,” Catherine responded serenely with her back facing him. However, a wave of emotions had already swept over her.
He had actually discovered it?
She thought that he would never realize it.
Shaun was deeply frustrated to receive a mere ‘oh’ a s a reply from her. Did she not have any other reactions, such as agitation, sorrow, or bitterness?
