Let me go, Mr. Hill By Shallow South Chapter 1889
“How cold! But it’s fine. Even so, I miss you.”
As soon as Freya heard Rodney’s flirtatious voice on the other end, her face flushed.
“I’ll stop here. I need to carry on with my work.” She hurriedly hung up.
Rodney smirked, knowing that she must have gotten shy.
He was very familiar with her shy side, especially on the bed…
At the mere thought of it, he felt a burning sensation. He could not help but grumble about Young Master Wooten’s birthday. Why did Young Master Wooten invite him? It was because of this that he could not do it with his wife at home tonight.
At 6:oo p.m., Rodney drove to the restaurant where the party was being held.
When he arrived, he realized that nobody else was there except for Young Master Wooten.
“Just the two of us?” Rodney was dumbfounded. He thought that he had come to the wrong place.
“What’s wrong? Why can’t it just be the two of us on my birthday?” Rory Wooten grinned as he poured a cup of coffee for Rodney.
“No. This is just untypical of you.” Rodney was glum. “You used to invite at least 20 people to every gathering and even call a few beautiful ladies over. ”
“So you want me to call a beautiful lady over for you, huh?” Rory winked.
“No. I’m already married,” Rodney quickly responded.
“ I’m just kidding. Who doesn’t know that you’re a man of integrity? What’s more… we all know that Sarah is the only person you love.” Rory passed the menu to Rodney.
Rodney said coldly, “ Don’t mention that woman. Our relationship is over.”
“Ha. Forget it. You said that every time you got drunk for her, ” Rory said calmly.
“I already have a child.” Indeed, Rodney did not want to recall the past.
Rory was under the impression that Rodney could never get back together with Sarah because of the child.
Rory would not believe that he had completely gotten over Sarah. When Sarah and Shaun were previously in a relationship, Rodney felt embarrassed to pour his heart out to Shaun and Chester. Hence, he came looking for him.
“Let’s start ordering. The dishes here are quite good, ” Rory said, “How’s the project development in Cairns going?”
“ It should be done by the end of this year. By the way, I want to thank you for that. If it hadn’t been for your help, the hooligans in Cairns wouldn’t have stopped.” Rodney raised his glass. “Although my uncle is the prime minister, I have to deal with certain issues in a low-profile manner. If I fail to deal with them properly, other people will perceive me as a bully, which will affect my uncle’s reputation.”
“No worries. We go back a long way, after all.” Rory paused for a moment before he said awkwardly, “ When you were kicked out of the Snow family previously, it wasn’t my intention to not lend you a hand. It was because your dad warned us and we were all afraid of offending him.”
“I got it. It’s all in the past.”
Rodney had gotten over it. He understood that everyone had their personal gains, including himself who was here because he could benefit from Rory.
The two of them talked shop for a while.
A knock sounded on the door, and a server subsequently pushed the door open.
Rodney did not realize it until he heard a glass falling to the floor. He lifted his head and froze the minute he saw a thin and pale face.
Never did he expect that he would meet this woman under such circumstances.
