Read Let me go, Mr. Hill By Shallow South Chapter 2064 – Heidi was speechless. “It’s precisely because of your dad that I hardly voiced my opinions before this. I shall be honest with you today. It was Ryan who pulled strings in this matter, but I think he did it right. Sarah will be a stumbling block for Rodney sooner or later.”
“Fine. I didn’t comment on anything either.” Nathan waved his hand and swiftly changed the subject. “By the way, I have a summit to attend in Country D a few days later. I’ll be there with your mom for five days. I need to meet up with prime ministers of six to seven other countries. You guys take care of each other at home. Freya, if you need anything, feel free to ask Ryan for help.”
Freya froze for a moment before she quickly nodded.
After having a mouthful of food, she hesitated for a n instant. She felt the need to officially apologize to them because of the incident earlier. “Godfather, Godmom, I’m sorry. Regarding Sarah’s kidnapping I was too impulsive. I’ve caused both of you trouble. I promise…”
“Silly girl, are you taking us for fools?”
Heidi put down her spoon and sighed. “Although we didn’t investigate it, we know full well what kind of person you are. You don’t even eat exotic meats, nor do you dare to watch people k**l a chicken. How would you have kidnapped her?”
Freya’s heart did a flip. She was pleased that everyone trusted her, but she did not want others to find out about it and suspect Eliza. “Actually…”
Heidi continued to cut in, “I’ve asked the guard. When Chester suddenly looked for you that day, you left with him. If I’m not mistaken, you want to protect someone. The person who actually kidnapped Sarah must be your friend. Considering Sarah’s evil character, she must have more enemies other than you.”
Freya’s cheeks were flushed. She glanced at Nathan and Ryan, only to find both of them calm.
Apparently, they had found out about it earlier on.
Ryan took a mouthful of rice before he laughed and said, “We’ve been eating together every day under the same roof, that’s why we understand your situation. The people in the old residence aren’t clear about it, but we didn’t expose anything. It’s because we’re afraid Rodney will keep pestering you and refuse to get a divorce out of guilt. Plus, since you want to protect your friend, we’re willing to help you.”
An inexplicable sense of warmth surged within her.
Freya tightened her hold on the fork, and she became teary-eyed.
She had always treated The Lodge with caution. If she were not worried that Rodney would snatch Dani away, she would not have moved in.
Nathan was Rodney’s biological uncle. She always felt that Nathan only looked after her because of his connection with Rodney and Ryan.
Only at this point did it hit her that Nathan and Heidi were different.
“Godfather, Godmom, thank you.”
Freya wiped the tears off the corners of her eyes. “I n truth, I just want to protect my friend. Her family died because of Sarah, but there’s no evidence of it. She wanted to d*e with Sarah. I actually rushed there, knocked her unconscious, and took her away. I hope you won’t disclose or investigate this issue. Don’t tell anyone about it as well. I’ve never thought about letting Rodney feel guilty about it because his guilt is nothing compared to my friend’s safety.”
Nathan nodded and felt helpless. He had a different impression of the woman seated in front of him.
“I feel sorry for what happened to your friend’s family. This is how society works. Not all murderers are sent to j**l. Some people will be out there on the loose, which has caused many to deal with it using extreme methods. But you can advise your friend that risking her life to take revenge is irrational. If she fails, she might even bring shame to her d**d parents. It might be cruel, but this is reality.”
Heidi added, “One should not lose hope as long as they’re still alive. Based on psychologists’ analysis, 70 percent of criminals will commit crimes again.”
“Having said that, don’t do such a thing again, Freya. You might’ve successfully gotten rid of the problem with Jessica’s help at the crucial moment, but if it turned out to be a big deal, I wouldn’t have been able to do anything, considering I’m a prime minister who’s under the watchful eyes of many,” Nathan reminded her prudently.
Freya nodded earnestly.
After dinner, Nathan called Ryan over to his study. The servant brought Freya back to the building where she stayed.
When Dani finished drinking milk at 11:00 p.m., Aunty Cally wanted to send her to bed but she soon bawled. Aunty Cally could not soothe her even after a long time.
Unable to move, Freya panicked. “What’s wrong with her?”
