Read Let me go, Mr. Hill By Shallow South Chapter 2293 – “Rodney, I’m really busy here. I have no time to argue with you. I’m hanging up now.”
Once the call was hung up on the other end, Rodney tightened his hold on his phone with a grim expression.
He did not care about Ryan’s motive. Anyhow, he had to stop Freya from getting together with Ryan.
In addition, this was an absolute joke.
When Rodney almost fell asleep late at night, he received a WhatsApp message from Sarah. [Rodney, when are you coming back? I’ve figured it out. I hope we can get a divorce.]
He was stunned and found it rather incredulous.
Sarah was asking for a divorce?
He was astonished and slightly dazed for a moment.
Did Sarah mean it or was she trying to gain an advantage by making this concession?
If this had happened in the past, he would not have perceived Sarah as a complicated person. However, ever since he saw the video of her abusing animals, his image of her had been totally ruined.
He phoned her and asked, “Are you serious?”
“There are many things that I don’t want to lie to you about.”
Sarah’s sorrowful voice rang from the other end. It sounded particularly pitiful in the middle of the night. “Rodney, we’ve known each other since we were young. Unfortunately, many things have changed. You used to be my wonderful first love, but I have no idea when you started not picking up my calls. I remember what you said the other day.
“Whenever I close my eyes during this period, those words will spring to mind time and again. I really don’t want things to end up like this.”
Sarah began sobbing. “But I understand that if the two of us insist on continuing our relationship like this, it’ll only make you hate me even more. In that case, we might as well get a divorce. I hope that when you think of me in the future, your impression of me is still good instead of being filled with disgust and hatred.”
Rodney stayed quiet for a long time.
He felt a huge sense of relief. At the same time, he felt a twinge of guilt.
He wondered if he had gone too far with his words the other day.
Sarah did not mean to abuse animals either. She behaved in an extreme way only because she was so badly hurt in the past.
He was also responsible for it, given that he did not pay enough attention to her emotions when he stayed with her.
What was more, if he were to put himself in her shoes, he would also be emotionally unstable if he went from being able-bodied to being d********d and disabled.
“I’m sorry, Sarah… I was in a bad mood that day and I spoke… too impulsively. Don’t take my words to heart.”
“I know, Rodney. Nobody understands you more than I do. You might speak harshly, but your bark is worse than your bite. I’ve never blamed you. I have only myself to blame for being useless. Recently, I’ve been seeing you running around because of your company’s affairs, yet there’s nothing I can help. I came to realize that I’m wrong. I shouldn’t drag you down. Let’s get a divorce. Once you divorce me, your parents will forgive you. As long as they’re ready to help you a little, your life won’t be so tough anymore.”
Sarah took a deep breath and continued sorrowfully, “I’m letting our relationship go. I hope the person I love can be relaxed and happy.”
“Sarah, don’t say that…”
At this moment, Rodney’s anger toward her vanished. Now, he was guilty. “So, have you planned your life after our divorce?”
“I’m planning to go overseas to recover my legs. Also, with my mental condition, I think I’m not fit to stay in Australia. If someone finds out about it, you’ll be dragged into the mess. Don’t worry. If other people ask about our divorce, I’ll definitely assume responsibility for it. You’ll have nothing to do with it.”
