Let me go, Mr. Hill Novel [By Shallow South] Chapter 2432
Freya lay in Ryan’s arms, feeling a little dejected.
When it was 8:00 p.m. or so, Mrs. Lynch could not help it. She entered the room and said, “Freya, I’m going to bathe Dani. Why don’t you go out and stroll around with Ryan? It’s rare that he’s here to visit you. You shouldn’t make him accompany the child all the time.”
“It’s okay, Mrs. Lynch. I’m very fond of Dani. Let me bathe her.” Ryan immediately carried the child and leaped to his feet. “I’ve always bathed Dani before this.”
Stunned, Mrs. Lynch promptly waved her hand. “No need. I…”
“Mrs. Lynch, give me a chance to prove myself. I want to be Dani’s father really badly,” Ryan said with a flattering tone while grinning.
He made his intention so obvious and straightforward that Mrs. Lynch did not know whether to laugh or cry.
“It’s fine, Mom. Just let him do it.”
Since her boyfriend was so proactive, Freya could not stop him. She said in a mocking tone, “It’s not easy to be Dani’s father. Take your best shot.”
Ryan proactively bathed Dani in the bath.
Bathing a child was no easy task. However, Ryan was strong and patient. After that, he fed Dani a bottle of milk before Freya saw him off.
“Thanks. Go back and rest early.” Freya pinched his palm. “Once you’re done with work, we’ll find time to go on a date.”
“Sure. I’ll be done in the next few days. I’ll be available every day afterward.” Ryan recovered from his musings. Looking at the woman with the moonlight shining brightly on her, he felt a tingling sensation. “After I resign, I won’t have to stay in The Lodge every night. I plan to stay at my place for three to four days a week. Do you want to… accompany me?”
He uttered the last two words very softly and flirtatiously.
Freya’s face flushed red. “I don’t think that’s a good idea. I’m living with my parents, and I need to look after Dani at night.”
“You can bring Dani over at times to let me adapt to being a father in advance.” Ryan hooked her pinky finger. Then, he leaned forward and said in her ear, “I miss you.”
“What a hooligan. Hurry up and leave now.”
Freya grasped his meaning in just a second. She broke off his grasp with a red face. “I didn’t have a good sleep last night. I’m going to go to bed now.”
Ryan bent over and stole a kiss on her lips. “Good night, darling.”
His hoarse voice made her heart melt.
Freya looked up and happened to meet his deep, soft gaze. Her heart shuddered, and she nearly wanted to ask him to stay here.
Nevertheless, she knew full well that it was not practical.
Although Ryan had encountered a setback in his career, he was lucky in love. Therefore, he was in such a good mood that he had a restful sleep that night.
Meanwhile, Rodney could not sleep properly as he was tied up in a stuffy house.
As he had not slept for two days straight, he looked a lot more haggard, and his bloodshot eyes were filled with hatred. When he glowered, his gaze was not as captivating as before. Instead, it was full of piercing hatred like a knife.
When dawn broke, Jessica entered the house and saw Rodney in that state.
“Jessica, let me go.”
That night, Rodney had thought through a lot of things. He knew that he had been completely defeated in this matter. If he continued to make a scene, he would suffer grave consequences. Therefore, he might as well back down and find a chance to take revenge after he went abroad.
Regardless of anything else, he knew a lot of secretive dealings that the Snow family was involved in.
By then, he would definitely make Ryan and the rest suffer.
Rodney was having a hard time, so he wanted to put other people in the same situation as him.
“Jessica, I’ve decided to go abroad. I won’t be able to beat you guys anyway. I won’t want to return to this distressing place anymore.”
Rodney revealed a disappointed, guilty expression as if he was willing to compromise.
