Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 1620 – The situation made Lea and Brennan heartbroken. After they exchanged looks, Lea walked up to Catherine. “Catherine, we have no idea when Shaun will recover. Perhaps he’ll forever be…”
“Aunty Lea, don’t make such a discouraging comment, ” Catherine interrupted her even though she was actually at her wits’ end.
Shaun’s brain was not injured. In fact, he was just like a computer whose programs were jumbled up, thus contributing to his intellectual disability.
Chester said he would do his best to cure Shaun, but Catherine knew the chances of success were very slim. If it was so easy to cure the illness, Shaun might have recovered those jumbled memories a long time ago.
Lea gazed at Catherine sadly. “You and Shaun have gone through so much to come this far. We’re actually happy to see that you’ve made peace with Shaun and given birth to his children. At this moment, I’m glad that you haven’t remarried Shaun. Although you guys are already together, you’re not his wife yet. You don’t have an
obligation to him. On the contrary, he’s our responsibility, given that we’re his parents.”
“Aunty Lea, what are you trying to say?” Catherine asked despite having guessed it.
“Catherine, if you’re tired and feel like leaving, feel free to do so. We won’t force you to take care of Shaun. Now that he’s become a fool, no one knows how long this condition will persist. It could take a few years or even forever.”
As Lea was speaking, she lowered her head and wiped the tears from the corners of her eyes. “ You’re still young.”
“Aunty Lea, don’t say that. I can’t leave with Shaun’s current condition. Of course, I have no idea how long I can hold on for, but I won’t leave now. I’ll stay here and take care of him.”
Looking at Shaun drinking milk, Catherine said with a low voice, “Yes, he might be a fool now, but his intellectual capacity might grow. Whether he’s normal or a fool, I’ll try my best and make him fall for me again. Even if we don’t have a future together, I won’t regret it.”
Lea was stunned, and there was a sense of appreciation in her eyes. “Thank you. It’s Shaun’s blessing to have met you in his life.”
“You and Uncle Brennan… can go home and rest, ” Catherine said.
“No. You can go home. Suzie and Lucas must be waiting for you. Tonight, I’ll accompany—” Before Brennan could finish his sentence, Shaun pouted in fear when he saw Brennan approaching him.
Suddenly, Brennan felt helpless.
“Forget it. Since he’s so afraid of you, I’ll accompany him. Suzie and Lucas are quite worried about him too, so can you please bring them here tomorrow?” Catherine gave a wry laugh. She could not bear to see Shaun in this state.
Brennan was headstrong. “How can we let the kids see him in this state?”
“But there’s no other way. The kids are worried about him, and we can’t hide it from them for long anyway.” Catherine felt helpless.
Only after Catherine convinced those two adults into leaving did Shaun relax.
He looked at Catherine and yawned. “Aunty, I need to… pee.”
Catherine stumbled and almost fell. When she finally regained her footing, she felt awkward. “You can go to the restroom on your own. It’s over there.”
“I don’t want to move, and I don’t know how to take off my pants.” Shaun squirmed and pouted.
Words could not explain Catherine’s expression. Luckily, Shaun was good-looking, which made her feel a little less awkward.
“Carry me… ” Shaun stretched out his hands to her childishly.
Catherine was at a loss for words. How could she possibly carry him?
“No need. Just use this. ” Catherine weakly took a bedpan from the bed. “What’s this? It looks fun.” Shaun’s pure eyes glowed as though he saw an interesting toy.
