Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 135
Shaun suddenly remembered how sweet Catherine tasted and lifted her into his arms right away. “Let’s go to the bedroom.”
A look of confusion flashed across her face. “Hang on, aren’t you working?”
“I thought you wanted me to stop working?”
He threw her a sideways glance.
“When did I say that?” A shudder passed through her.
“You said that loud and clear with your eyes.” He looked at her helplessly before heading to the room, still carrying her in his arms.
She felt like crying at this moment. Did he misunderstand her or something? When the man began to remove his jacket in front of her, she started to realize what might happen next…
Immediately, she sat up straight on the bed. “No, I’m on my period.”
His eyebrows furrowed in displeasure. It was a rare moment that he wanted to go all out to fulfill her wish.
What a bummer.
Catherine, on the other hand, secretly let out a sigh of relief. Luckily, her period started when she was taking a shower earlier. Honestly, ever since last time, she felt a strong resistance to engaging in s*x. “Well, I’ll head back to my room then.”
The frown between Shaun’s brows became more intense. “Aren’t you sleeping in my room?”
“I don’t want to disturb you.” She definitely did not want to share a room with him.
“It’s alright, just sleep in here. I don’t want you to come knocking on my door with a blanket in the middle of the night again.” He pushed her back to the bed. “Get me a fresh change of clothes. I’m taking a shower.”
She was speechless. Why was she responsible for this as well? It was not like she was his real wife.
She got him some clothes and he walked into the bathroom with them. While in the shower, he came to the conclusion that it was pretty nice to have a woman at home.
After showering, he noticed that she was already lying beneath the blanket. However, she was positioned at the far end of the bed.
He got into the bed and grabbed her close to him.
“Shut up. I don’t want to hear you falling off the bed at night,” he interrupted.
Technically, this was the second time the two of them were sleeping in the same space. They both were too exhausted the previous time and had fallen asleep right away, but this time, it was different.
Shaun was hugging her from behind. He felt for the first time that the woman’s scent had completely filled the bed. Besides, her body was so soft that it was much more comfortable than a pillow. He did not want to let go.
On the other hand, Catherine was going through the exact opposite. She could not feel at ease at all. The occasional cramps in her stomach kept her awake. She could only try to gently move around in his arms to find a more comfortable position.
“What are you doing?” He could not sleep as she kept moving.
“I’m having period cramps. Am I keeping you awake? It’s better if I just sleep in the guestroom.” She sat up and intended to leave.
He stopped her right away and placed his big warm hand on her stomach. “Is it hurting here?”
He started rubbing the area softly. His voice sounded especially magnetic in the quiet night. “Is it any better?”
His big hand worked wonders like a heat pack. It felt comfortable, and he applied just the perfect pressure. Her pain eased in a matter of minutes. Something strange also materialized in her heart.
