Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 1151 – Lucas was silent, but that proud look he had showed Shaun that he agreed.
Catherine could not help but ask, “How did they agree to allow you to play?”
“It’s very simple. I gave them two thousand bucks each, and they wanted me to come every day.” Shaun smiled.
Catherine was speechless and could not help but grunted to herself, “Money makes the world go round”.
Just as she scolded, her phone rang.
It was from Wesley. Her expression stiffened.
A moment later, she moved aside awkwardly with her phone.
“Cathy, where are you? It’s so noisy.” Wesley asked in a hushed tone, “When are you coming back?”
“I’m playing with Lucas outside. I’ll come back later.” Catherine explained needlessly.
“Why didn’t you call me if you were playing with Lucas?” Wesley laughed. “Oh, I’ll call you next time.”
Catherine used a few excuses and ended the call.
When she turned around, she saw Shaun and the two children standing behind her.
Shaun looked at her with concerned eyes, “Did Wesley urge you to go back?”
“ It’s late. The kids still have to go to kindergarten tomorrow. ” Catherine tugged her hair behind her ear.
“Oh, then you can go back. Suzie stays with me anyway, and I can bring Lucas back with me tonight. I’ll bring them to the kindy together tomorrow.”
Shaun was afraid she would overthink and assured her, “Don’t worry, I’m not trying to take the children from you. I just think that since you’ll be sending Lucas back to your dad, it’s better to let him come with me since it’s closer.”
Catherine frowned. It would take 40 to 50 minutes to reach Sherman Mountain, so it was indeed a little far. “Lucas, what do you think?”
Lucas pursed his lips and fell silent, but Suzie took his hand. “Lucas, you should s********h me tonight.
We haven’t slept together in a long time. We’ll go to Grandpa’s place tomorrow, okay?”
“…Okay.” Lucas finally nodded in agreement.
“Alright then.” There was nothing else Catherine could say.
After they left the gym, she got into the car and left by herself.
In the rearview mirror, she saw Shaun holding the two children’s hands by his sides. In the dim lights, somehow, her heart seemed to have been left behind somewhere.
How did that saying go?
A mother’s heart was wherever her children were. In fact, she wanted to stay with the children.
However, they did not want to go to Wesley’s villa, so she could not force them to.
Shortly after Catherine left.
Hadley drove the car and picked Shaun and the others up.
He soon sent the three to the Hill family villa.
It was late, and all the elders of the Hill family were already asleep. Shaun did not wake them and instead brought the two children to his room and prepared a bath for them.
Although Lucas was not used to it and resisted, he slowly eased up because of the troublemaker, Suzie.
When the two children played in the bathtub, he took a photo and sent it to Catherine.
Catherine had just arrived at the villa when she saw the photo. Under the warm light, Suzie’s smile was sweet and cute. Lucas’ face was splattered with the bathwater but his eyes showed a very faint smile.
That scene was so warm that her heart ached.
When she was pregnant, she had fantasized about their family of four. Her husband would dote on her and their children would be healthy and lively. It was every woman’s greatest wish.
Now, the children had returned to their father, and she was married to Wesley. However, when faced with this villa, she was still feeling flustered and resistant.
Suddenly, Shaun sent a message: [Cathy, thank you for giving birth to these two lovely little angels. The apologies I owe you might not be said enough or made up to you in this lifetime, the next, or even the next, next lifetimes, but I’m really grateful to you. I’ll love you forever. In this life, I’ll never marry anyone except you. I’ll always wait for you. I’ll wait for our family of four to be complete.]
