Read Let me go, Mr. Hill By Shallow South Chapter 2168 – “Yes, I’m shameless. In my whole life, I’ve only been shameless to you.”
Ryan’s lips left hers. He caressed her delicate lips, which were still glistening with his saliva, lightly with his fingers. His gaze was dark. “Freya, I know I’ve frightened you today, but it’s normal for you to feel scared. It’s okay. We’ll take it slow. I’ll woo you and treat you well, not as a family member or a friend, but as a pursuer. I’ll also give you enough sense of security to make you understand that I’m not like your first love or Rodney. You’re so scarred that you can’t take any more hurt. As long as I live, I’ll make you understand that you’re the best woman I’ve met and that you deserve to be cherished.”
Freya was initially still angry that he forced a k**s on her.
However, looking at his affectionate gaze and hearing his gentle voice, her heart melted, and her eyes reddened.
Ryan truly understood her.
He knew about her weakness and her lack of confidence better than anyone else.
If he were just an outstanding man with an average identity, she would be willing to give it a try.
However, he was not.
The distance in their statuses was too big.
“Ryan, don’t do this to me. I need some space,” Freya said with reddened eyes.
“You can take some time to calm down. I’ll head out first, but let’s go home together tonight. Since you’ve had a few drinks. I’ll have the driver come over to pick us up.”
Ryan did not force her anymore. He had said what he had to, and he understood that Freya would feel scared too.
However, before he left, he kissed her forehead lightly. Then, he turned around, opened the door, and shut it after leaving.
Freya was like a statue. She did not move until there was the sound of someone knocking on the door outside.
“Freya, it’s me.” Catherine’s voice came through.
Freya quickly adjusted her dress and wiped her mouth with a tissue before walking over to open the door.
Catherine stood at the door in a dazzling red dress. “Eliza has left because she has some other matters to attend to. I came to check on you. Are you okay?”
Her last three words were skilfully phrased. The moment Freya met her observant eyes, she suddenly understood everything. “Do you know something?”
“Oh, it seems like Ryan has finally done something to let you know his feelings.” Catherine closed the door and eyed Freya with a vague smile. “Were you two in the room…”
“Don’t be so d***y.” Freya interrupted her quickly as her face flushed red. “Nothing happened between Ryan and me. We just talked for a while.”
“The conversation must’ve been impressive. Even your lipstick is gone.” Catherine teased her.
Freya desperately wished she could hide in a hole on the ground. However, they had been close sisters for many years. As such, she simply glared at Catherine. “Have you known about this for a long time now?”
“Haven’t I asked you about it before? You said there was no way he’d like you.” Catherine shrugged her shoulders. “Such intimacy is rare even between family members. You and Ryan chat on WhatsApp all day. He sends you stuff immediately when you’re unhappy and even cheers you up. You both often have meals together after work. He takes action for you when someone bullies you. He’s also the one who takes care of you when you fall sick and even takes care of your child attentively. Stop kidding. You two aren’t blood-related at all.”
Freya suddenly realized that Ryan had been treating her so nicely during that period. She was so stupid for thinking that Ryan liked men all along.
In fact, she should have noticed it when he kissed her until he almost lost control.
“Cathy, he said he loves me and wants to marry me…”
Freya still felt like everything just now was a dream. “Do you think he has gone crazy? His parents are my godparents, and he’s the prime minister’s son. Although my godparents usually treat me well, they won’t be able to accept me, a divorced woman who has a daughter, to be with their son. To The Lodge, this is a s*****l. Not only won’t the Snow family accept it, but the public will also explode if they know about it. No one will give us their blessings. There’ll only be people attacking us with harsh words.”
