Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 252
Ethan’s heart hurt. If he had not made the wrong choice in the first place, she would not have been fooled by Shaun.
Shaun came in from outside with a cold and handsome face. He went upstairs for less than two minutes before quickly coming downstairs again. “Catherine hasn’t come back yet?”
“No.” Aunty Linda was slightly afraid of his expression.
“Why isn’t she back yet?”
“I don’t know. She isn’t picking up the phone either.” When Aunty Linda finished speaking, the temperature in the villa seemed to drop to freezing point, making her shudder.
Shaun smiled coldly. Good, even after cheating on him with Wesley, she still did not know how to behave. It was already ten yet she was not home yet. She did not even call home. That woman just never changed.
“Young Master Hill…” At that moment, Hadley rushed in from outside. “I just got the news. Hugh Jewell made a move on Miss Jones outside the police station today, but Wesley Lyons blocked two stabs for her. She’s safe, but Wesley is seriously injured and is now being saved in the hospital.”
Shaun’s body froze in place as his dark eyes suddenly narrowed. “Where’s Elle? Is she dead? Didn’t I tell her to protect Catherine?”
Hadley sighed and reminded kindly, “Young Master Hill, did you forget? When you saw the photos on the news the day before yesterday, you lost your temper and told Elle to stop protecting Miss Jones. You told Elle to leave Miss Jones to her own devices.”
“I told her not to protect Catherine and she really stopped protecting Catherine? Does she have any common sense?” Shaun lost his temper again.
Hadley was silent. Elle only followed Shaun’s words obediently.
“Let’s go to the hospital.” Shaun stepped outside.
After arriving at the hospital, he stormed straight into the VIP ward.
Wesley was still in a coma. An oxygen tube was h****d to his nose, and Catherine was wiping his face with a towel.
That scene stung Shaun’s eyes ruthlessly. Once upon a time, she had taken care of him like that too. Now, she was taking care of another man.
“Come here,” he looked at her and said slowly, “Go back with me.”
Catherine stopped her movements and shook her head. “He’s not awake yet. I can’t leave.”
“Catherine Jones, do you not understand what I said?” The flame in Shaun’s heart was instantly ignited. His tone was extremely morose. “I’m giving you one last chance.”
His tone made Catherine’s heart chill. She almost got stabbed to death today. Did he not see that she was covered in blood? Had he ever cared about her? “Shaun Hill, be reasonable. If it weren’t for Wesley, I’d be a corpse by now. He protected your girlfriend. It’s fine if you don’t have any gratitude, but your attitude makes people feel that you’re a cold-blooded animal.”
“I’m a cold-blooded animal?”
Shaun stepped toward her. He had done so much for her, protecting her time and again, even loving her. However, she was accusing him of being cold-blooded?
The two words struck his heart like a knife, causing unbearable pain.
“You should have already known why Hugh Jewell wanted to kill me,” Catherine sneered, “Does the great Young Master Hill lack money so much that you’d fight an unscrupulous lawsuit for that bit of money? Or was it for fame? You got to the top and obtained the reputation you now hold in the lawyer world by stepping on other people.”
