Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 191 – The attorney who was speaking with Shaun felt a shudder pass through him out of the blue and quickly shut up. He took his wine glass and went to join the dice game on the side.
Chase sat down next to his friend, speechless. “Brother, I’ve already invited Catherine here out of kindness. When will you stop the cold treatment?”
“Are you sure you didn’t invite her here for Miles Clark?” Shaun mocked coldly.
“Come on.” Chase was not sure what to say. “Well, you’re the one who didn’t show interest when she showed up.”
An indifferent smile flashed across Shaun’s face. “Ha, forget it. A loose woman like her? No, thanks.”
At the same time, a few people came in through the door. It was Stephen Campbell alongside Janet and Rebecca.
Chase was at a loss for words.
What a sh*tty day this was that put archenemies in the same room. He had the premonition that something bad would happen.
Stephen scanned around the room before walking toward Chase.
“Young Master Harrison, I was just hanging out with my friends in the other room. Young Master Cook told me that you’re here too, so I came over to say hi. This must be the reputable attorney, Mr. Hill. I’ve heard a lot about you and it’s great to finally see you in person.”
Shaun did not budge, still keeping the indifferent expression on his face. However, Chase could not do the same. He did not have to care about Janet but Stephen was the newest successor to the Campbell family, hence he had to show some respect. Besides, the Campbell family was gaining much influence these days.
“Congratulations, President Campbell, for taking over the family business.” Chase threw a quick glance at Rebecca while keeping the smile on his face. “But why are you with the woman from the horrible Jones family? Tsk, are there no more fishes in the sea?”
Stephen laughed aloud before grabbing Rebecca closer into his embrace and shouted, “Listen up, everyone, let me introduce my girlfriend, also known as the daughter of Jeffery Jones—the major stockholder of Hudson Corporation.”
Everyone fell into a heated discussion. Both Chase and Shaun frowned at the sound of that.
“No way, since when did Jeffery Jones become the major stockholder of Hudson Corporation?”
“Is he lying?”
“Stephen, let’s keep it low-key,” Rebecca said shyly.
“Why should we? It’s not exaggerating to say you’re the richest young lady in the whole of Melbourne, given your new circumstance.” He kissed her on the cheek. “Say, how did I find such a treasure like you?”
“Stop it.” Rebecca lowered her gaze to the ground, looking embarrassed.
Janet threw a sideways glance at Catherine before saying loudly, “My brother isn’t lying. We were just hanging out in the private room with executives and stockholders of Hudson Corporation. Everyone was talking about this new project worth hundreds of billions of dollars.”
The room became chaotic.
“Wow, that’s a grand project!”
“One can easily get over a billion dollars profit out of it by participating.”
“Hey, Miss Jones, we’ve not met the executives of Hudson Corporation before. Is it cool if we hop over and say hi?”
Rebecca twitched her red lips into a smile. “Of course. If you don’t mind, you all are welcome to hang out with us in my private room.”
“Let’s go. Young Master Harrison, we’ll be back soon.”
In a matter of minutes, only Catherine, Freya, Shaun, Miles, and Chase were left in the previously lively private room.
