Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 740 – Shaun, who was snubbed again, could not find the words to reply.
He felt sullen, really sullen.
However, Catherine had already ignored him. When she walked out, Suzie had finished eating and burped. “It’s delicious. I feel like sleeping now.”
“You little piggy. You have to brush your teeth first.” Catherine took out a brand-new children’s toothbrush and toothpaste from her bag.
Shaun was shocked. “Why do you have that in your bag?”
“ I bought it downstairs earlier. Since you brought Suzie here so late, I guessed she would be sleeping here.”
Catherine then led Suzie to the bathroom.
“Wait, where’s my toothbrush?” Shaun said, “I don’t feel comfortable leaving Suzie here alone. I’m staying too.”
“Sorry, but I don’t allow men to stay overnight, and I don’t want the Neeson siblings to destroy my home again,” Catherine said bluntly.
“Sarah… doesn’t know I’m here, ” Shaun said vaguely. “I’ll sleep in the guest room. In any case, I can’t leave Suzie behind.”
“Aunty, just let Uncle sleep here, ” Suzie pleaded softly. “I want him to stay too.”
Catherine secretly glared at her, and Suzie lowered her head and stuck her tongue out.
“Fine. If you want to sleep here, you can sleep on the sofa. Next door is Freya’s room. She has gone back to Melbourne, but all her stuff is on the bed, so I don’t think you’ll want to sleep there.”
After that, Catherine took Suzie into her room and closed the door.
Shaun pushed open the door of the second bedroom and gave up at a glance. He never thought a woman who looked so neat would sleep on such a messy bed. It looked like a dog’s kennel.
In the end, he chose to nest on the sofa.
Although it was almost summer, the nights were still cold.
After sleeping a while, he felt cold. All he could do then was knock on the master bedroom door.
Suzie opened the door and rubbed her sleepy eyes. “ Uncle, what’s the matter?”
“Suzie, where’s Aunty Cathy? Can you let me grab a quilt?” Shaun glanced inside and did not see Catherine, but there was the sound of running water in the bathroom.
“Aunty is showering. We only have one quilt, but I think there’s a blanket.”
“A blanket works.” Shaun immediately went to take the blanket. If he waited until Catherine came out, she might not give him the blanket.
On his way in, he subconsciously glanced at the bathroom.
That single glance almost gave him a nosebleed.
That was because Catherine was showering with the door only half-closed.
His brain rang from the sight. When she turned around from the shower, he quickly picked up the blanket and went out.
The moment the door closed, Catherine thought she had heard some movement from inside the bathroom. She immediately looked out but did not see anyone.
However, there was an unexplainable burning sense of shame in her heart.
In the past, when Lucas was with Suzie, she could feel rest assured and close the door to shower.
Now, there was only one person in the room. Although Suzie was lying down, as a mother, she was still worried. Hence, she did not close the door.
She did not forget that there was a man in the house either. Even though she did lock the bedroom door, what if Suzie opened it?
With that, she quickly put on her clothes and went out. Suzie was lying on the bed, but the blanket on the chaise lounge was gone.
