Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 213
Shaun remained silent. He raised his brows while looking at Catherine, wondering how she was going to introduce him to the man.
“He’s my boyfriend,” Catherine answered directly.
“I’m aware of your grandpa’s intention, Young Master Irvine, but I’m already in love with someone else. Please also tell the directors that I’m very busy. I hardly have time to spend with young masters like you guys.”
Unwilling to give up, Young Master Irvine said, “You’re a smart person. You’d better think wisely. If you marry into the family of a director in the company, it’ll do both of us good. In my opinion, your boyfriend has nothing else except for looks. He’s not a good match for you.”
Shaun’s face darkened while the corners of Elle’s mouth twitched violently. Elle looked at Young Master Irvine as if he was a really strange man.
“Thank you for your advice, but I’m in love with him. I’ve fallen hopelessly in love with him, and he’s the one worthy of my love. Please leave now.” Catherine drove him away in an abrasive manner.
“You really don’t know what’s good for you.” Young Master Irvine glared at Catherine before he left.
Catherine let out a sigh. She turned her head around, only to notice Shaun’s flirtatious gaze. She blushed at the thought of the cheesy words she had just said. “I just wanted him to get over me. Don’t misunderstand…”
“What did I misunderstand?” Shaun suddenly turned somber. He narrowed his eyes, giving a discreet smile. “Does it mean that you don’t love me hopelessly?”
Well, her feelings for him were not as far as hopeless love, actually.
However, Catherine could not bring herself to say that to him when looking at his grim expression.
Her silence caused Shaun to smirk. “Get into the car.”
The car traveled to the main road.
Catherine attempted to start a conversation. “Have you eaten?”
His stomach growled even before he could answer.
After two seconds of silence, Catherine chuckled. “It’s only 6-ish. Why are you already hungry? Didn’t you have lunch?”
“The food in the office didn’t taste good,” Shaun said in a huff, “It’s been a long while since you cooked for me. Are you under the impression that you can act unscrupulously without the agreement?”
“I have a lot on my plate recently.” Catherine felt quite apologetic. “I’ll prepare breakfast for you to bring to the office every morning, okay?”
“Are you treating me as a student?” Shaun stared at her. A few seconds later, he added, “Alright then.”
Catherine was speechless.
What a rapid change in his attitude.
Shaun missed her cooking terribly. Ever since she started working in Hudson, she had never prepared a proper meal for him. “C**k for me when you get home tonight. I want to eat roast pork, Caesar salad…”
“Stop, stop. Let’s have KFC tonight. I’m suddenly craving spicy fried chicken wings.”
Catherine grabbed his arm and screamed in excitement before he could finish his sentence.
“Are you crazy? How dare you make me eat this kind of trash?” Shaun was so shocked and furious that his brows were furrowed.
“You’re wrong in saying that. A lot of people enjoy eating this kind of trash, okay! Look how well the business is doing. No way, you have to stop immediately. I’m drooling at the thought of spicy fried chicken wings.”
Catherine kept scratching his arms. When the agreement was previously in effect, their standing in the relationship was unequal and she had to listen to him. Now, she could do whatever she wanted and eat whatever she craved for with his presence.
Shaun had no choice but to park at the side of the road.
The two of them entered the KFC outlet together.
With customers coming and going as well as the greasy smell of the meat, Shaun felt so uncomfortable that he frowned.
“Go and save me a seat. Grab that seat.”
Catherine pointed to the empty table where someone just left. The trash on the table had not even been cleared.
“I’m not going there.” Shaun gave her a frosty look.
