Read Let me go, Mr. Hill [by Shallow South] Chapter 402 – Director Irvine scanned across the room to ensure no one from the Hill family had the intention to lend Shaun a hand. “I’m not an unreasonable man. Since you broke my arm, then I shall return the favor today. Besides, my wife is infuriated that your wife tried to seduce me. But we can forget about this if you let her slap your wife across the face.”
Catherine laughed upon hearing that. “Do you have proof that I actually tried to seduce you? I’m sure there are security cameras everywhere. Let’s check the footage to see if I actually laid a finger on you.”
Director Irvine flew off the handle. “What do you mean? Why would I accuse an ugly woman like you?”
“The distinguished Director Irvine wouldn’t have to accuse you. Things have taken such a bad turn yet you still refuse to admit your wrongdoing. I think one slap across the face is not even enough.” President Thompson seemed to be trying to make matters worse.
Melanie suggested helplessly, “Cathy, quickly apologize to the man and promise you’ll not do it again.”
The corners of Catherine’s lips twitched into a sarcastic smile. “I can tell that you’re trying to get back at the two of us today. The truth doesn’t even matter, it seems.”
“There’s nothing we can do if that’s what you think, Ms. Jones,” Charlie said in a low voice. “However, a person should reap the consequences of their actions. What do you say, Eldest Young Master Hill?”
Everyone shifted their gaze to Shaun’s impeccable face.
Not so long ago, this man used to be at the top of the hierarchy. His presence in Australia was not unlike a g*d.
Now that he had fallen from the top, everyone could not resist wanting to see him suffer.
Under the public’s gaze, Shaun’s deep eyes turned to look at the members of the Hill family. “Grandpa, Grandma, Mom, do you agree with their suggestion?”
In the family members’ opinion, he was seeking help.
Old Madam Hill twitched her lips. “I think—”
“I think it’s time he gets some punishment,” Old Master Hill held his wife down by the shoulder as he interrupted. “We failed to educate you but accidentally turned you into an arrogant and despotic man instead.”
Valerie was smiling from ear to ear. “Shaun, I bet you didn’t see this coming. Have you forgotten how you treated us last time? Yet now you’re asking for our help? Dream on.”
“Mom, what do you think?” Shaun stared right into Lea’s eyes.
The woman averted her gaze.
Shaun’s thick eyelashes lowered, casting a dark shadow beneath his eyelids.
Catherine could not help feeling sorry for the man. She instinctively held his hand tighter.
She understood the pain of being given up on by your own family.
He looked over his shoulder to meet her gaze.
Director Irvine could not be happier at the sight. “Did you hear that? Extend your arm right now. Hmm, I think we should go with your right arm.”
When Shaun raised his head again to scan across the room, his delicate lips curled into a faint smile. “Actually, I suddenly remembered something. Seeing as all the affluent families of Canberra are here today, allow me to reintroduce myself.”
He retrieved a gold-rimmed name card from his pocket. “I’m the founder, director, and president of Shaunarah Corporation.”
Although it was established less than five years ago, the corporation had grown tremendously. In Australia, it was now the electronics corporation that was second only to Hill Corporation.
