Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 175
Catherine initially felt a little drowsy. Upon hearing Aunty Linda’s words, however, she got goosebumps.
She just could not bring herself to believe that she was Shaun’s darling.
Nevertheless, she believed that he was concerned about her.
Knowing that someone was concerned about her made her feel a little warm.
Aunty Linda reminded, “Next time, you’d better let Mr. Hill know if you’re not coming back. Men tend to overthink.”
“Okay.” Catherine nodded with mixed feelings.
Given that she had nearly walked into Rebecca’s trap yesterday, she needed to stay alert at all times. She would not always be so fortunate to have someone save her.
It was really a pity that she lost the sketches. Shaun had even found someone to help her finish them in the middle of the night. That person was indeed brilliant.
“By the way, Aunty Linda, did you see that person who came out of the study last morning? Was that person a man or a woman? How old did he or she appear to be?”
Catherine assumed that the brilliant person who finished the sketches had burned the midnight oil and only left in the morning.
Aunty Linda found it strange. “Nobody came yesterday. When I got up at 6:00 a.m., I saw Young Master Hill walking out of your room.”
“That means you didn’t hear the sound of a car entering or leaving the house?”
“Absolutely not. Considering my old age, I tend to have poor sleep. I’d definitely be aware if someone came over.”
Aunty Linda shook her head straight away.
Catherine was totally stunned. If no one came at midnight yesterday, the person who did the sketches had to be Shaun.
Having said that, how could he possibly know how to design? His basic design skills were surprisingly great!
What was more, he could only use his left hand.
His left hand was not flexible, so he could not eat properly and even needed her to feed him.
Well, no doubt, she had been lied to!
If this had happened earlier, she might have been dismayed. Now that she thought about it, however, she found his actions to be sweet.
Little did she know that this man… was so good at acting.
He could have been direct by telling her that he wanted her to serve and feed him. What a hypocrite he was.
“What’s the matter, Madam?” Aunty Linda noticed that she was frowning one minute and giggling the next. She sighed as she could not figure out what was going on in the young woman’s mind.
After the meal, Catherine returned to her room and slept. Recently, she had been exhausted and was completely sapped of her energy.
Not knowing how long she had slept, she finally opened her eyes in a daze. Suddenly, she saw a tall figure seated beside her. The man was dressed in a black top, which outlined his perfect physique. He gazed at her with his handsome face and a pair of deep, dark eyes. How charming.
Confused, Catherine blinked her pretty eyes. It felt like a dream. Was she dreaming about Shaun?
Upon noticing her silly expression, the man stretched out his hand and pinched her nose.
Catherine immediately sat up and gave a yawn. The tip of her fair, exquisite nose reddened, while her eyes were swimming with tears that resembled glistening morning dew.
Shaun’s eyes slightly darkened. “Where did you go last night?”
“Aren’t you only supposed to come back tomorrow?” Catherine was in a daze, trying to confirm that he was really seated by her bed.
