Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 164
“What’s the point of calling the doctor? He can’t help reduce my pain either.” Shaun closed his eyes, and his eyelashes looked tangled. He let out a moan weakly.
He acted as if he was trying hard to endure the pain. That expression, coupled with his pale handsome face, made Catherine subconsciously clutch his hand. “Is there anything I can do for you?”
“Are you going to help me?” He opened his dark eyes.
“Yeah.” Catherine nodded seriously.
“Uh…” Shaun frowned as if he was thinking it over. Then, he casually said, “Why don’t you give me a kiss so that I’ll be distracted?”
Catherine widened her eyes, wondering what kind of solution that was.
If it had not been for his weak condition, she would seriously doubt whether that was his intention.
“If you’re not willing to do it, it’s fine then.” Shaun turned his face away and continued to moan.
“No, no. I’m willing to do it.”
He was her savior, after all.
Catherine summoned up the courage to approach him. She lowered her head and kissed his thin lips.
It was probably because he had spent too much time getting an IV infusion that a faint taste of medicine lingered on his lips. However, the taste faded after she gave him another kiss.
It was her first time kissing him on her own accord, and her whole face flushed. Luckily, the lights were not on.
Shaun’s body turned stiff, and his heart started racing.
Before he could come to his senses, she drew back. She asked in a soft voice that resembled a mosquito’s buzzing, “Done?”
“It kinda worked, but it hurt again the moment you left me,” Shaun replied with a weak voice.
“But I’m afraid you’ll be in pain if I kiss you for a long time,” Catherine said faintly.
“Come over here.” Shaun nodded to hint at the empty space on his left side.
Catherine hesitated for a moment before she lay there. Then, she kissed his lips again.
Initially, she appeared to be kissing him in embarrassment. Later, Shaun was the one who felt that way without him realizing it. Amid the daze, she wrapped her hands around his waist.
He had no idea how long they had been kissing. It was only when Catherine’s heart thumped that she gradually began to feel tired. She slowly leaned on him and fell asleep afterward.
Shaun drew back, then glanced at her with a dark gaze. After that, he gently kissed her on the forehead before he closed his eyes.
The pain he was feeling became less severe after the fuss.
The next morning, Catherine woke up before Shaun. He was still asleep at that time.
Gazing at the exquisite features on his handsome face beside the pillow, she recalled everything that happened in the wee hours last night. The thought made her blush with embarrassment.
Nevertheless, she did not seem to hate it…
She was shocked by that very thought of hers.
At that moment, there was a knock on the door. “The doctor is coming for the rounds.”
She swiftly put on her windbreaker and ran toward the doctor. It was the same Dr. Kane who came last night, and there were a few interns following behind him this time.
They were all stunned when they saw her. Their eyes were fixed on her in a strange manner.
Catherine’s face flushed. She assumed that the interns had found out from Dr. Kane about what he had seen last night.
Fortunately, Shaun was already up at that moment. Dr. Kane immediately gave him a check-up. Ten minutes after the check-up, Dr. Kane was ready to leave. He clenched his fist and coughed lightly. “Although you’re making quite a fast recovery, you still have to take care.”
Catherine was speechless.
She was so devastated that she did not feel like saying anything else.
Only after washing up did she notice her swollen lips in the mirror. She was so shocked that she almost fell into the toilet bowl.
