Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 250
Hadley dodged back in disgust. “Don’t touch me, I hate dirty things. Don’t shun him so much. He just looks old, but he’s only 40 and has been single for decades since he couldn’t find a wife. You’ll follow him back to the countryside and give him a child.”
Then, Hadley left, leaving Rebecca behind. She cried in despair, but no one paid her any mind.
At that moment, she truly regretted it. She should not have forced Catherine Jones out of the household at that time. She should not have pushed Granny Jones down the stairs.
However, there was no medicine for regret in this world.
At the entrance of the police station.
Catherine had just finished recording her confession when she suddenly heard someone call out her name.
She turned around to see Wesley coming toward her with a smile on his face. The weather was cold, and he had a plaid scarf wrapped around his neck. It gave him a gentlemanly air.
“What a coincidence. Why are you here?” Catherine forced out a smile to greet him. Every time she saw him, she remembered those photos and the conflict between Shaun and her.
“A relative at home did something, so I came to bail them out.” Wesley looked helpless. “I heard that Jeffery Jones and Sally Lennon were arrested recently. Are you…”
“Yeah, the police called me here to take my statement. The case will be transferred to the judicial department next week and then the two will finally be sentenced.”
“Congratulations, you’ve finally avenged your grandmother.” Wesley was happy for her.
“Thanks.” Catherine’s smile did not reach her eyes. She looked quite tired.
Wesley walked with her toward the parking lot, looking at her along the way. “You… look tired. Have you been resting well? Does Shaun still have a misunderstanding…”
“Can we not talk about this?” Catherine interrupted him.
“It’s my fault.” Wesley looked guilty.
“How is it your fault? You helped me that night. If it weren’t for you, I might have committed suicide a long time ago. Yesterday, you even cooperated with me to clarify the misunderstanding and saved my reputation. I should be thanking you,” Catherine shook her head and said honestly.
The two chatted while walking. A young man suddenly walked beside them, but they did not pay him any mind, thinking that it was just a passing pedestrian.
However, the man suddenly took out a fruit knife from his coat pocket and stabbed it toward Catherine’s chest.
Wesley noticed it too late. Seeing the knife about to stab her, he quickly reached out to block it, and the knife pierced into his arm.
By the time Catherine reacted, the man had quickly pulled out the knife to stab it at Catherine again. Wesley could only use his body to shield her, and the knife pierced the small of his back.
“Help!” Catherine cried out. She impulsively grabbed the man’s arm. “Who are you? I don’t even know you!”
“It’s enough that I know you. It’s your fault for being Shaun Hill’s woman. I’ve been following you for a long time now.” The man revealed his hideous face while continuing to stab as if he was mad.
Fortunately, they were close to the police station. An officer heard the cry for help and quickly ran over to subdue the criminal.
