Let me go, Mr. Hill Novel [By Shallow South] Chapter 2449
“Of course.” Freya was smug.
Mr. Lynch and Mrs. Lynch exchanged glances. They could not stand seeing their daughter being so shameless.
However, their daughter’s matter was already settled. It was their son’s relationship that became a major concern for Mrs. Lynch.
After dinner, Ryan and Freya pushed Dani in a stroller to the neighborhood’s lakeside for a walk.
The weather had started becoming hotter. The night breeze blew, and a slight fragrance wafted in the air.
Freya sighed. “I really can’t figure out what my brother is thinking. Did you say he still likes Jessica? It doesn’t seem like that. He might not like her, but he still hasn’t gotten a girlfriend.”
After she spoke, she glanced at the man beside her. “What do you think?”
“I’m not too sure either.”
No matter how smart Ryan was, he could not figure everything out. “Maybe Forrest doesn’t like Jessica anymore. Or maybe he still likes her, but he can’t get over the barrier in his heart. Besides… it’s not just about their identities and status. There’s still Rodney standing between them. Uncle Jason and Aunt Wendy will eventually grow old. With how Rodney is now… The duty will fall onto Jessica sooner or later. She’s a person with a sense of responsibility. Moreover, the parents of both families won’t agree.”
Freya went silent.
Some people might be in love, but they might not be able to overcome obstacles and end up together like her and Ryan.
No, she and Ryan could only end up together because of Ryan’s courage.
On the other hand, Forrest and Jessica were people with wounds in their hearts. Maybe they had lost the courage they had back then.
Thinking about it, Freya unconsciously tightened her grip on the hand of the man beside her. She had to cherish him well.
Ryan drove his car and left. When he passed by Snow Corporation’s building, he saw that the lights on the top floor were still lit. After hesitating for a few seconds, he turned around and drove into the parking lot.
After knocking on the door twice for etiquette’s sake, Ryan entered the office.
Upon hearing some movements, Jessica raised her head from the mountain of documents and revealed her intricate face, dark hair, and red lips. “Why did you come here at such a late hour instead of accompanying your girlfriend?”
“I just came from Freya’s house. I saw that your office’s lights were still on when I passed by.”
Ryan did not sit down immediately. Instead, he looked around. “Are you planning to sleep in the office tonight?”
“I’ve been busy with Rodney’s matters these days. A lot of work has piled up…” Jessica’s grip on the pen in her hand tightened. A trace of fatigue flashed across her pretty eyes. “I brought him to the hospital for a check-up today. He’s like a child now.”
“I heard about it.”
Ryan did not dare to go to the manor those days. Although Uncle Jason and the others would not say anything, Rodney had already ended up like that. Ryan was afraid they could not come around to the situation.
“Are Uncle Jason and the rest okay?”
“…They’re still doing fine.”
Jessica only answered the question after staying quiet for a while. “Although it’s a little unfortunate, we’re still relieved. According to my dad’s words, the current situation is pretty good. In the past, Rodney wouldn’t listen to them at all. He was difficult to discipline. Now, he’s like a sheet of white paper. He may be a little naughty, but he’s pure and innocent. I even played with him for a while today. He trusts me with all his heart instead of hating me and being wary of me like before.”
“That’s good, then.”
Ryan let out a sigh of relief. After all, they were relatives.
The conversation paused, and the office suddenly went silent.
