Let me go, Mr. Hill Novel [By Shallow South] Chapter 2459
The Lynch family and the Childs family soon proposed a schedule for the wedding.
Mrs. Childs even had someone pick the wedding date. “I found out that next week, the 15th, is a good day. Let’s set it as the wedding date.”
Forrest subconsciously frowned. “Assistant Childs’ legs won’t be fully recovered by then.”
“The doctor said she can only walk properly at least after 100 days. That means she’ll only recover at the end of the year. That’s a little too long.” Mrs. Childs paused for a moment before she continued, “Since you both are getting married soon, you can directly address her as Stacey.”
“That’s right, Forrest.”
Stacey, who was on the bed, summoned her courage to look at him. “Just call me Stacey from now on.”
Forrest replied in the affirmative and looked down.
“15th it is, then,” Mrs. Lynch responded. She was aware of the Childs family’s concern. They wanted to avoid the problems that might incur a delay, and as Forrest’s mother, Mrs. Lynch was worried that Forrest would go back on his word. After all, getting him to agree to the marriage was not easy. “Do you have any requirements on the wedding room, dowry, and so on?”
“Let’s go outside and discuss so that the two kids can talk. By the way, Forrest, Stacey needs to go for a check-up later. Can you please take her for that?”
After that, Mrs. Childs shot a look at Mrs. Lynch.
Mrs. Lynch grasped Mrs. Childs’ meaning within a second. The two of them then immediately pulled each other’s hands and left.
The ward suddenly fell quiet. Somehow, Stacy started to become nervous. She had always been polite toward Forrest. However, now that they suddenly got together, she was a little excited and worried at the same time. “I’m sorry, Forrest. I didn’t save you to make you responsible for me. But with the situation that day, I instinctively wanted to make sure you were safe…”
She bit her tongue and gazed at him with a hint of shyness in her eyes.
“Anyhow, I need to thankyou.” Forrest was calm. “But … I’m curious about something. Have I ever seen you before you applied to work in Lynch Corporation?”
“Yeah.” Stacey nodded. “After I returned from overseas last year, I attended a charity event with my parents where I accidentally hit you with my wine glass and even dirtied your suit. I apologized to you, and you didn’t blame me either. Later, I borrowed a suit and wanted to look for you, but you already left.”
Based on her words, Forrest tried to jog his memory and seem to recall that the incident happened during the fall when Lynch Corporation had not relocated to Canberra yet. They only had a small office here, and he received the invitation to the charity event only because he was Freya’s brother. However, the upper class in Canberra ostracized and looked down on him.
At the event, people only glanced at him from afar, not even bothering to walk up to him.
After Stacey hit him by accident and dirtied his suit, he found nothing interesting about the event, so he left early. He did not even take a good look at Stacey’s face. Never did he think that…
What was more, when Stacey was hired to work in Lynch Corporation, they were still a small-scale company.
As a clever person, Forrest soon figured out the context of things.
It was not surprising for a woman to fall in love with him at first sight. After all, many women in Melbourne’s gentry circle went after him of their own accord.
Nevertheless, having been betrayed and hurt by a woman before, he did not believe in relationships.
“You should know that I only treat you as an ordinary subordinate,” Forrest said frankly. “But as your family said, you saved me, and my family happened to be urging me to get married. That was why I agreed to marry you. If you’re expecting me to be considerate, gentle, or romantic, I’m sorry because I might not be able to do that for you.”
“It’s alright. We can slowly build our relationship after we get married.” Stacey looked up and smiled. “I’ve been working for you for a long time. Despite your coldness, you look handsome, you don’t smoke, and you only drink for the sake of socializing. Also, you don’t have any bad habits or are you fickle. You have many plus points.”
She believed that their relationship as boss and subordinate would naturally change after they became a married couple, slept together, and had a child together in the future.
She would slowly melt his heart over the course of time.
Forrest was stunned, and he pursed his lips without uttering a word.
