Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 231
Catherine was stunned. She had actually planned to ask Shaun about his identity. However, the fact that he asked Willie to conceal his identity showed that he did not feel like revealing it to her. In that case, she would not bother asking him. “No.”
Shaun slowly dropped his gaze. Catherine glanced at the time and said, “I’m going to attend an auction tonight, so I won’t be home for dinner. Do you want to… come along with me?”
She cautiously asked even though she felt that he would not agree to come along. Judging from his arrogant character, he would not be interested in this kind of occasion.
“Huh?” Catherine was dazed, thinking that she misheard him.
“I said okay. Why are you surprised?”
Shaun gazed at her dazed expression with a smile.
“But you don’t like to participate in the events held in Melbourne.”
“I’m coming along to prevent any men from flirting with you.”
He drove seriously with his eyes fixed on the road ahead. Catherine turned her head and looked at his perfect side profile for a moment. She could not help but give him a kiss on the cheek.
The steering wheel in his hands quivered, then he said helplessly, “Don’t flirt with me when I’m driving.”
The sentence sounded familiar. Catherine giggled and replied, “I know. It’ll cause the car to turn over, right?”
“No.” He glanced at her. “It’ll cause my heart to leap.”
Her breathing hitched.
A burning atmosphere seemingly filled the enclosed space. Her heart raced even more quickly after he flirted with her.
At that moment, she had a strong urge to kiss him passionately. Even so, she attached greater importance to road safety.
An auction was about to begin in the convention hall.
The well-known figures in Melbourne entered the venue one by one. As the current chairwoman of Hudson, Catherine appeared to be the focus of the event. The crowd mobbed her as soon as she walked in.
Looking at how highly sought-after she was from a distance, Ethan was filled with bitterness.
Never in his wildest dreams did he expect that the girlfriend whom he previously dumped would become the new chairwoman of Hudson within a short period of time.
These days, many people saw him as foolish.
Indeed, Ethan had been foolish. He was mistaken about Catherine and consequently missed out on the opportunity to be with her. With a better man by her side now, he reckoned that she would not be bothered about him.
His fiancée, Tracy Steele, was sitting beside him and pinched his arm. “I heard that she’s your ex-girlfriend, right?”
“It’s all in the past.” Ethan forced a smile. He was aware that he could only work hard to please the Steele family for now.
“It’s good that you know it. As long as you’re head over heels in love with me, my family will support you,” Tracy said softly.
On the other side.
Catherine spotted Ethan as well because of his striking white suit.
A strange woman from an eminent family stood beside him.
Deep down, Catherine sighed as she thought about the man whom she had deemed to be perfect back then. Against all her expectations, the man turned into someone who would sacrifice himself for the sake of power and fame.
“Are you staring at Ethan?” A man’s admonishing voice suddenly sounded.
“I was thinking about something.”
“What were you thinking about?” Shaun was annoyed.
“A good show is coming up. You’ll find out in a while.” Catherine lifted her face, her bright eyes glowing with playfulness and craftiness.
Shaun’s frown slowly relaxed. Anything would be fine by him as long as she got over Ethan.
