Let me go, Mr. Hill By Shallow South Chapter 1682

Catherine had been staying here all because of Shaun.

Without a second thought, Shaun answered, “ Wherever you go, I’ll follow.”

Catherine asked, “… Why?”

“Why?” Shaun scratched the back of his head in a daze. With a pout, he replied, “ I don’t know. I just don’t want to leave you.”

Catherine did not know whether to laugh or cry. Should she feel happy or sad about it?

“Shaun, let’s have a talk.” She walked up to him again.

When Shaun gazed at her pretty face, he felt aggrieved. He snorted and turned around to enter the study.

Catherine closed the door.

Her eyes swept over the messy floor of the study. He must have thrown a tantrum during the lesson.

Shaun gritted his teeth. As he fought back his tears, he suddenly stretched out his hands to hug her. “ Cathy, I know it was my fault. I shouldn’t have called you a pervert last night. Are you still mad about it? I promise that I won’t make such a remark about you anymore. Please don’t leave me.”

Pulled into his arms so abruptly, Catherine was startled.

Only when his hot tears fell on her neck did she start regretting it.

She had forgotten that he only had the mental capacity of a two-year-old despite his sturdy figure, ability to play basketball, and other brilliant skills.

No matter how unhappy and lost she was, she should not have placed the burden on him.

“ Shaunny, I’m not mad about what happened last night. I’m just… afraid that you’ll slowly grow up and leave me,” Catherine said gently, “When you woke up, you called me ‘Aunt’ at first glance. As I told you earlier, I don’t want to be your aunt. I want to be your lover, woman, and girlfriend.”

“No problem. You can be my lover and girlfriend.”

Shaun tightened his arms around her sulkily.

“But do you know what it means for me to be your lover and girlfriend?” Catherine asked as she pushed him away softly.

Shaun’s dark gaze instantly became confused.

Catherine looked at him and smiled. “Look, you don’t even know things like this because you know too little. Shaunny, I hired teachers to teach you vocabulary and English because I hope that you’ll grow up as soon as possible. Then, you’ll be able to earn money, protect me, and take care of me.

That’s when you can talk about love and relationships.”

Shaun was bewildered, but he was aware of his own ignorance. Indeed, he knew too little. Maybe he… should really buckle down and study hard.

“Shaunny… As I said, this is your house and not mine. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be staying here. Do you understand?” Catherine lifted her head and cupped his face. “Do you know what the outside world is like?”

“… I don’t.” Shaun admitted candidly, feeling a little discouraged. “Am I very useless?”

“Not at all. I used to be like you long ago, but now I know that there are vast grasslands, azure oceans, towering snow mountains, bustling cities, and all kinds of delicious food out there. There’s also intrigue between people, but you don’t know all these. We don’t have any topics in common, and I can’t be talking about cartoons and toys with you all the time. I want you to learn so that you’re aware of more things. That way, we’ll have more topics to talk about and you can help me when someone bullies me. We can also enjoy the view of the sea, go horse riding, and ski together.”

Catherine looked into his eyes seriously. “I love you, and that’s why I hope you’ll grow up. I’m making you learn and hired teachers to teach you so that you can be on an equal footing with me as soon as possible. Because… to me, you’re different from Suzie and Lucas.”

Deep down, Shaun was shocked. He might not have been to those places, but he could not resist the intense longing he felt to visit those places with her.
