Read Let me go, Mr. Hill By Shallow South Chapter 1863 – When Freya recalled it, she instantly felt ashamed. She did say that.
“Yeah, Young Master Snow personally made these chicken meatballs.” The sitter added, “ I wanted to cook pasta for Young Master Snow at first, but he said he’s afraid you’d be jealous if you saw him eating such good food. Hence, he said he’d eat the same food as you.”
Freya was at a loss for words.
The sitter’s words made Freya seem like she was being unreasonable.
Well, she was a woman. Women were meant to be unreasonable, right?
“ If you don’t want to eat this, I’ll cook something else for you.” Rodney rose to his feet. “In fact, it doesn’t matter to me how you look.”
“Fine. I’ll eat this.”
Freya picked up the glass of fruit juice and drank it reluctantly. “I still need to go on a diet.” Speechless, Rodney watched her eat.
He felt that women were really phony.
No matter how phony she was, she was still far better than Sarah, though. At most, Freya was just insistent on saving her dignity. On second thought, he found her quite cute.
Her behavior was akin to his, was it not? They were always set on preserving their dignity. Anyway, the two of them were pretty cute, and they had similar hobbies too.
After breakfast, Rodney pretended to scroll on his phone. “Hey, do you want to watch a movie tonight? Let’s watch it early and return home after that. There’s a new blockbuster movie and it’s quite a hit.”
Freya was aware of the movie as it was being widely discussed online.
She was vaguely interested, but at the thought of Dani, she fought back her urge. “No way. We can’t go out together. If we’re both not around at night, Dani will be unused to it. Why don’t you watch the movie tonight and I’ll watch it tomorrow?”
Rodney pulled a long face after hearing her words.
What a dumb*ss. How dare she call herself emotionally intelligent? Why would one watch a movie alone? It would only be romantic when both of them watched it together.
The sitter said with a smile, “Both of you can go together. Aunty Marie and I are around, so we can take care of Dani. What’s more, when the two of
you start working in the future, you won’t be able to stay by Dani’s side all the time.”
“Exactly. If you’re still worried, I can ask my mom to come over at night. She enjoys looking after her grandchildren the most,” Rodney promptly said,“ Besides, who should I watch the movie with? Given that Chester needs to work and spend time with a bunch of women, he won’t be free to keep me company. What more Shaun, who’s more concerned about his wife than his friends? He won’t even eat with me, let alone watch a movie with me. The rest are just fair-weather friends, so there’s no point asking them out. Come to think of it, I’m really lonely.”
A hint of dejection crossed his handsome face.
Freya shuddered for a moment. This man suddenly became so melancholic that she could not help but have goosebumps.
On second thought, it hit her that she did not have anyone to watch a movie with either. Eliza, the star, could not possibly accompany her. On the other hand, Catherine had to look after her kids and Shaun, so she would not be able to make it too.
All of a sudden, she could understand Rodney’s feelings.
“ I’m going to buy the tickets now.” Upon noticing that she was silent, Rodney quickly booked the tickets. “ I’ll pick you up at 7:00 p.m. after work. ”
“ I’ve bought the tickets. They’re not refundable, ” Rodney hurriedly added.
It was only when Freya left for work did it occur to her that she was going on a date with… Rodney.
The minute Freya left, Rodney swiftly drove to Chester’s house and dragged him out of his bed.
“Are you out of your mind? You’re waking me up when it’s only 10:00 a.m.”
It seemed Chester had gotten up on the wrong side of the bed. He would have made Rodney’s life a thousand times more miserable if he were not his buddy.
