Read Let me go, Mr. Hill By Shallow South Chapter 1796 – Freya’s due date was still a month away, but she was now in labor. Catherine was a little doubtful whether the reason was that she went shopping with Freya earlier.
If she had known, she would not have asked Freya out today.
Once they rushed to the hospital, they happened to bump into Jason and his wife, as well as Nathan, Heidi, and Ryan.
Freya had been pushed into the delivery room. Through the door, they heard the pained cries from inside.
Catherine and Eliza’s hearts ached at the sound. Freya was fine before they left. Who would have thought she would be in such pain in the blink of an eye?
Wendy grabbed her son angrily. “Isn’t she supposed to be due next month? Why did it happen early?”
“I… I don’t know.” Rodney mumbled, not daring to meet his mother’s eyes.
If she found out that Freya went into premature labor because they quarreled, he might be beaten to d***h.
Catherine blamed herself. “Aunty, it might be my fault. Maybe it’s because I went shopping with Freya in the afternoon and tired her out.”
“Pregnant women should walk more before giving birth, and shopping is the same as walking. It’s not your fault. ” Wendy could not blame her. “What’s important is that the mother and child are safe.”
Rodney stood by the side without saying a word.
Ryan looked at him and suddenly said, “Rodney, Freya was with you when her water broke. Did you quarrel with her again and p**s her off so much that she went into premature labor?”
Everyone instantly turned their eyes to Rodney.
After all, everyone knew that Freya and Rodney were always fighting and arguing.
No one knew what was wrong with them. As soon as they met each other, sparks would fly and scatter everywhere.
Rodney’s expression was stiff. After a moment, he muttered, “I argued with her a little, and… her stomach suddenly hurt.”
Wendy’s face instantly became as cold as ice. “You argued with her a little? What did you say to her? What did you do to cause a pregnant woman to go into premature labor?”
“I… I asked if she was having dinner with another man tonight, and she… She said she was looking for a second love, so I was angry and said that… she’ll have a potbelly… So, I gave away the clothes she bought… and we quarreled for a while. Then, her stomach started to hurt…”
Rodney hung his head low and mumbled about what happened.
Catherine was aggravated. “She was having dinner with me tonight.”
“I know you were there, but there were three sets of cutlery. There was someone else…” Rodney muttered.
“That was me.” Eliza’s expression was ice cold. She did not expect Rodney to suspect Freya just because they left early. “Besides, she’s your wife. Shouldn’t you know what kind of person she is? If you ask your wife, who’s nine months pregnant, those kinds of questions, you’re questioning her character. Any woman would be angry.”
“That’s right. Freya has worked so hard to carry your child, yet you still suspect her. If I were her, I’d d*e of anger.”
Wendy was so angry that she slapped Rodney across the face. “What did I tell you? You’re married and she’s pregnant, so I’ve told you to compromise with her. Yet, what did you do instead? You had the nerve to tell her that she’d have a potbelly? How did she end up like this in the first place? It’s because of you. She wanted to buy beautiful clothes, yet you gave them all away to another person. Are you even a man? Why did I even give birth to you?”
“Mom, I’m sorry… I didn’t want to…”
Rodney’s handsome face went pale from the scolding.
He did not want that to happen either. Looking back at it now, he could not believe that he did such a thing.
“You didn’t want to, but you’ve done and said it. ” Heidy furrowed her brows as well. “Rodney, I thought that you’d have become more mature after what happened to your uncle, but…”
