Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 993
Catherine was startled by Wesley’s eyes. She had never seen him look at her with such eyes before.
“I’m sorry, I scared you. ” Wesley realized that he was being too rash and immediately hugged her tightly again, his tone filled with pain.
“Cathy, I don’t want to be like this either. For the past month, I’ve been worried and anxious. I hated my useless self. I let Shaun take you away, but I resented that you were with him every day. Will you divorce me if you’ve fallen in love with him again?”
The more Catherine listened, the more guilty and heartbroken she was. “No, Wesley, I should be the one apologizing. I…”
Thinking of how she had slept with Shaun every day these days, she wanted nothing more than to dig a hole and crawl into it. She was too ashamed to face Wesley.
She had even slept with Shaun on their wedding night.
The more she thought about it, the paler her face became. She could not speak at all.
“Stop talking. Let’s get out of here. Your dad is also very worried about you.”
Wesley wrapped his arm around her and headed to the helicopter.
After getting on the helicopter, Catherine still felt muddle-headed.
She had been saved by Wesley, but it was too late. She could not pretend that nothing had happened.
“By the way, Wesley, can you tell me what exactly is going on outside? How did you find me? Where a m I now?” she asked, bewildered.
“This is a small island on the Pacific Ocean. It’s an island that Shaun bought while he was abroad, and i t wasn’t registered under his name, so we weren’t able to find out. I only managed to find you because I called the police and said he kidnapped my wife.”
Wesley explained to her patiently, “Cathy, I actually wanted to call the police long ago, but when Shaun took you away, he threatened me saying that he’d ruin my family if I dared to report it. I don’t care what happens to me, but I have to think about my parents.”
Catherine sucked in a cold breath. “I didn’t expect Shaun to be so cruel. He even used your family to threaten you.”
“Yes.” A light flashed in Wesley’s eyes, and he said in a low voice, “Otherwise, I would’ve called the police long ago.”
“But why did you report it to the police now? You’re not afraid of him anymore?” Catherine asked suspiciously. “Shaun told me last time that Hill Corporation’s chip will be entering the market, and it seems like it’ll be the top microchip in the world. I n the future, his status will definitely be— ”
“Hill Corporation’s microchip failed to hit the market.”
Wesley interrupted her, “I heard that it was a foreign company called Landell Group that launched a more powerful chip first. Hill Corporation was caught off guard and their stocks have been falling since yesterday. Hill Corporation’s market value shrunk by more than 80 billion dollars.”
Catherine was stunned. 8o billion dollars? How hard had the stocks fallen? It was no wonder Shaun left in such a hurry.
“How did they fall so badly?”
“It’s because Hill Corporation said that the Purdue Microchip they were developing was the world’s number one chip. This attracted a lot of large domestic and foreign companies who paid high deposits. When Landell’s microchip came out, the partner companies all thought they had been cheated.
“Hill Corporation caused great losses to the partner companies. According to the contract, Hill Corporation has to pay an exorbitant amount of compensation which might lead to their bankruptcy.”
Catherine was shocked.
All along, Shaun had been like a deity standing at the top of the pyramid.
She never expected Hill Corporation to suddenly fall after getting caught off guard.
Others might not understand, but she knew Shaun.
Shaun had never been a braggart, and the people in Liona constantly worked hard. It was impossible that they did not know Landell had successfully developed the world’s number one microchip.
