Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 183
Chase: [She’s definitely on her period.]
Rodney: [Women are annoying. They have countless trigger points and reasons to get upset.]
Chester: [No worries, just bring her shopping and pay for everything.]
Shaun fell into deep thought.
Catherine was not bothered about shopping upon arriving at the mall. She picked out a few clothes at random to have a quick look before putting them back on the racks.
He turned around to the salesperson. “I’ll buy any outfit that she touches.”
This took her by surprise. “What’s that about? I’m just browsing—”
“We’ll buy anything that interests you.” He gave her no room for discussion. “My woman can buy anything she wants. I have more than enough money.”
The salesperson exclaimed with envy, “Wow, your boyfriend treats you so well! I’ve never seen any man this generous with their girlfriend.”
Startled, Catherine studied the man standing tall in front of her. Suddenly, she could hear her heart beating loudly.
She even felt guilty about getting upset with him not long ago.
Shaun was not the most considerate. To an outsider, it might appear that her love was forced and one-sided.
However, only they themselves knew the truth about the relationship. She did not need anyone else to validate the way he treated her.
“It’s fine. I’ll just pick out a few.”
She shook her head. Finally, she went on to try out several outfits. Every outfit looked good on her beautiful figure and nice skin.
In the end, he paid for everything that she tried on. She only found out after the payment had gone through.
She grabbed his arm, feeling bad because the clothes here were expensive. “I don’t need so many clothes.”
“It’s fine. As long as you like them.”
He replied casually.
“Thank you.” Feeling touched, she stood on her tiptoes to give him a peck on the cheek. A look of embarrassment flashed across her own face.
The man’s eyes darkened upon seeing her rose-tinted cheeks. Indeed, Chester was right. Bringing an unhappy woman out shopping solved everything.
The following day.
Catherine put on her new clothes before going to check the renovation progress at Green Mountain.
The builders were occupied with masonry work. She toured around the site and discussed the progress with the head builder. Wesley walked in from outside and shifted his gaze to her new clothes. “Nice outfit. Is it a recent purchase?” he complimented.
“Yup.” She smiled joyfully upon thinking that it was a present from Shaun.
The overflowing happiness from her eyes surprised Wesley. An inexplicable sense of discomfort materialized in his heart.
At the same time, she received a call from an unknown number.
“Hello, is this Miss Jones? A woman named Wendy has passed out in her rental house. I tried calling the contacts on her phone but no one was willing to come over…”
Wendy… Aunty Wendy, the carer?
Catherine replied immediately, “Please call the ambulance to send her to the nearest hospital. Don’t worry about the fees. I’ll come over right now.”
After hanging up the phone, she darted toward the door. Wesley trailed after her. “I’ll come with you.”
