Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 1658 – Shaun, on the other hand, was not used to it. Catherine had previously showered in the hospital too, but the scent was the refreshing kind. His mouth dried up today after smelling this unfamiliar yet pleasant fragrance, and his heart began to throb erratically.
When he looked up and saw her dark hair and red lips, he was overwhelmed with a desire to k**s her.
However, someone hugged her more quickly than he could. It was Suzie.
“Mommy, you’re done showering?” Suzie hugged one of Catherine’s t****s.
“Yeah.” Catherine knelt down and was delighted to see the completed Lamborghini sports car on the ground. “Lucas, isn’t this the same Lego your grandma gave you the last time? You actually finished assembling it. You’re amazing.”
Lucas’s handsome face reddened slightly in embarrassment.
Shaun harrumphed and pouted.
Suzie covered her lips and snickered. “Mommy, it wasn’t Lucas who finished it. Lucas spent one week but still couldn’t complete it, but Shaunny finished it after only a while. He’s truly amazing.”
Shaun’s chest immediately puffed up like a proud peacock. It was not a big deal to him before this but for some reason he wanted Catherine to sing the praises of his achievement now.
Shaun was slowly regaining his intelligence, and while he couldn’t be labeled a fool, he was still very much like a child to her. This puzzle, on the other hand, had put one’s mind to the test.
Lucas had always been a smart kid and loved to play with Lego since he was younger than he was now. He picked up the challenge himself to assemble Lego designed for age 18 and above but alas he could not complete it. Shaun, however, managed to finish it in such a short time.
This could only mean that his intelligence might have always been intact.
“Oh, you’re amazing, Shaunny,” Catherine said as she rubbed his black hair.
Shaun grinned happily, revealing his pearly whites. “Then can I have a reward?”
“Sure.” Catherine smiled. “What do you want?” “I want a k**s, ” Shaun announced.
“Pfft.” Suzie burst out laughing then snickered as she covered her mouth.
Lucas smirked as well. He had secretly seen how Shaun and Catherine got along in private. They kissed in a way that was nothing like kissing a child.
Catherine’s face flushed in embarrassment. It would not have mattered if it was only Shaun alone but the children were here too.
She said stiffly, “Okay. I’ll give you a k**s. Everyone gets a reward.”
She pressed a k**s onto each of their foreheads, with Shaun being the last.
Shaun frowned after the k**s as this was not the kind of k**s he wanted. He was about to speak when Catherine glared at him.
He proceeded to zip his mouth and pout sulkily.
“Well, you guys continue playing. I’m going to take care of something.”
Catherine slipped away.
Hadley had been waiting in the parlor for a while.
“Ms. Jones, Rebecca and Young Master Hill hadn’t been to the company lately. The company…” he hesitated.
“Rebecca is d**d, ” Catherine said faintly.
“What?” Hadley was stunned. Rebecca had spent so much money and effort to acquire 70% of the company’s shares, but now she was d**d? “Is that true?”
“I’ll head over to the f*****l parlor this afternoon. Even if it’s a corpse, I want to see for myself if it’s truly Rebecca.” Catherine’s eyes were cold. She had to be sure, lest Rebecca escaped and stabbed her in the back again.
