Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 177
“…”

Well, well, well, Catherine was really pushing Shaun’s limits.

How dare she pull his ear? Although it did not hurt, the action sent an electrifying feeling to every part of his body. However, he was still her owner at the end of the day.

“Catherine, don’t forget who you are.” He glared at her with a straight face.

The fearless woman told herself to take the risk this time. If it was all but a misunderstanding, then she would keep her feelings hidden. She would continue playing her role and doing what was necessary.

“I remember my role in this relationship. Normally, a rich man would give his lover some money and not get involved in his personal life. However, not only do you keep an eye on my whereabouts 24/7, but you also risk everything to save me when I’m in danger. Not to mention, you secretly give me a hand at work when things get a little overwhelming.

“Besides, your left hand works perfectly fine. But you also made me feed you.

“You could’ve just given me the orders if you were lazy, but you lied to me instead. That shows you’re guilty.”

Catherine looked into his eyes seriously. “Shaunny, is it that difficult to admit you like me? I like you too.”

The woman’s clear eyes reflected his own face.

Shaun’s first reaction was to feel embarrassed. It was as if he had lost the upper hand.

Little did he expect his little tricks to be exposed.

However, the moment she confessed that she liked him too…

His heart began to pound beneath his chest.

For some unknown reasons, despite knowing since the beginning that she was interested in him, her confession today felt especially genuine. It gave him an inexplicable sense of… joy.

Despite that, his handsome face still remained expressionless.

Gradually, she lowered her gaze. Alright, he was still unperturbed. Perhaps she had been overthinking.

“It’s fine if you don’t like me back. I’ll not ask you again. I’m leaving to use the bathroom.”

Then, she got out of bed and put on her slippers.

Shaun simply watched her receding silhouette in silence. A hint of disappointment and sadness flashed across his face.

He had this inexplicable feeling that the distance between them both would only become further if he did not say something right now.

“Catherine Jones, tell me, are you the little fairy sent by God to torture me?”

Looking slightly annoyed, he pulled her into his arms.

Her head hurt a little when it hit his chest. However, the second she met his helpless gaze, an unbelievable joy surged from the bottom of her heart.

She raised her eyebrows as her mischievous eyes twinkled with brilliance. “I don’t know what you mean.”

“Stop pretending.”

He buried his face into her long hair. The frustration was evident in his hoarse voice. “You don’t have any outstanding strengths apart from your cooking skills, not to mention you seem to be a magnet for all sorts of trouble. I’m really unfortunate.”

“…”

Was he criticizing her or subtly admitting his fondness for her?

She felt like crying, but there was nothing else she could do because the feeling was mutual.

Coincidentally, this man was also her husband.

She wanted to give them a chance.

The woman turned around to hug him tight.

He liked that she was clingy. A few seconds later, he lowered his head to kiss her pink lips.

Now that they both knew of each other’s feelings, she no longer felt the need to be cautious around him anymore.

Shaun, who was deeply distracted by the kiss, almost lost his control. “Come on, get in bed with me for a little longer. I’m tired.”

“Okay.”

Catherine had enough sleep, but upon seeing the exhaustion written over his face, she nestled within his arms anyway. In a matter of minutes, the steady rhythm of his breathing entered her ears.

She raised her head carefully to look at the dark circles beneath his eyes. He appeared really worn out, and it was all because of her.

A fuzzy feeling warmed her heart. She no longer had a family but she had him now.
