Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 346 – The next morning.
When Catherine got up, she habitually took out her phone to look at the trending news.
The top trending search query today was [President Hill accompanied his young girlfriend to pick strawberries.]
In the picture, Melanie was tilting her head to look at Shaun with her eyes crinkled in a smile. They looked very sweet. She was holding a strawberry that had fused together with another strawberry, and Shaun was looking at her with his handsome face. The light from the sunset fell on their faces, making them look like a pair of lovers exchanging their affections for each other.
She suddenly remembered what he had said last night. “Doesn’t this strawberry look like us?”
Heh, how ridiculous.
He had taken the strawberry Melanie plucked and said such a thing to another woman. Did he not feel ashamed at all?
Well, what was there to be ashamed of? He could even pick strawberries for his mistress with his girlfriend. His shamelessness was astonishing.
“What are you looking at?”
Shaun, who was sleeping with an arm around her, leaned over to see her screen.
The photo on it made him panic and he said quickly, “Don’t misunderstand. My grandmother forced me to go with her yesterday.”
“Mmh, it’s okay.”
Catherine said obediently with a calm face.
Shaun’s handsome face stiffened, and there was a complicated look on it. “What do you mean by that?”
Catherine did not understand why he was suddenly unhappy and could only tell the truth, “She’s your girlfriend, so it’s normal for you two to pick strawberries together. I won’t get jealous. I know my place.”
She was just someone he was using for his amusement. She had a shameful identity.
Shaun stared at her for a moment before suddenly laughing.
Her kindness and understanding made his heart chill.
She could be so indifferent because she did not care about him at all.
What a fool he was. He was worried that she would misunderstand and even explained himself in a hurry.
“Wow, Catherine Jones, you’re really generous.” Shaun scoffed coldly. He suddenly lifted the blanket and barged into the dressing room to change.
Two minutes later, he slammed the door and left.
He made so much noise as though he was afraid that she would not know he was angry.
Catherine did not understand him. Did he expect her to cry and make a fuss and get jealous? It was he who said that Melanie would be occupying the position of Mrs. Hill, while she was only to sleep in the same bed with him.
In the past, she would have gotten jealous, but all that remained now was her hatred for him.
Her heart had frozen up and would not throb for him again.
Shaun went to the company with a cold face and immediately called Old Madam Hill.
“Did you take that photo?” Only members of the Hill family could take pictures of him in the manor.
“How’s Grandma’s photography skills?” Old Madam Hill giggled. “I made you guys look good together, didn’t I?”
“Grandma…” Shaun raised his voice, full of annoyance.
“What are you yelling for? Are you trying to scare me?” Old Madam Hill’s voice was louder than his. “What? You’re my grandson. Can’t I take a picture?”
“You shouldn’t send my photos to the media.” Shaun rubbed his brows and gnashed his teeth. “Didn’t I make myself clear last night?”
“So what if I sent it? Are you going to eat me?” The old madam did not buy his words at all.
Old Madam Hill huffed in exasperation. “Did you see what everyone on the internet is saying about the photo of you and Melanie? They’re all saying that you two are an ideal couple and that you two are very loving. Everyone is praising you for being handsome and spoiling your girlfriend. I’m going to let the PR department create a wife-loving persona for you.”
“…I’m the president of a company, not a star looking to debut.” Shaun was so angry that he could not continue talking to her anymore and hung up directly.
