Let me go, Mr. Hill By Shallow South Chapter 1772

“ It was because I saved Matthew and told Sheryl the truth. Sheryl canceled the transfer of Hill Corporation’s shares in time and halted Golden Corporation’s overseas development. Gavin was confident only because he had invested in Golden Corporation and got endless funds from Wesley.

After Wesley lost Golden Corporation and Hill Corporation, he was left with nothing. As such, Gavin no longer had as many funds. Those people in Canberra were swayed because of money. Without money, how could they possibly side with the Mead family?”

Catherine finally understood.

She could not help but sigh at how greedy some people in this world were.

At the same time, she was taken aback by Shaun’s plans.

After all, he had lost his memory, had he not? Before this, he was just like a fool. What a rapid change it was.

She stared at him with complicated feelings.“

Wasn’t Wesley aware that Matthew was saved and about the changes that took place in Golden Corporation’s overseas development?”

“It was all settled within a day. When we took action, we deliberately ordered our people not to sound the alarm, so they didn’t have the faintest idea what was going on. Wesley had been under the impression that he was the wealthiest man in Australia who could do anything as he pleased,” Shaun said scornfully.

Catherine instantly figured it out. At the same time, she was filled with mixed feelings. “Did you have this planned from earlier on? You previously approached Hannah…”

“ I wasn’t the only person who planned this. Prime Minister Snow, Titus, and I planned it together. ”

Shaun said, “Nathan’s inferiority made Gavin lower his guard. After Sheryl kicked me out of Hill Corporation, I pretended to pursue Hannah  with the intention of making Wesley and the Meads think that I was in a desperate situation. The whole of Canberra saw me as a laughing stock, which satisfied Hannah’s vanity and Wesley’s desire to trample on me at the same time. The more Wesley felt that I was miserable, the more conceited he became. Once a person becomes conceited, they’ll easily show their cloven hoof and become careless. In fact, if it weren’t for his carelessness, I wouldn’t have been able to save Matthew.”

After pausing for a moment, Shaun could not resist holding Catherine’s hands. “I’m sorry, Cathy.

Despite knowing that Wesley was forcing you and even hurt your dad before this, I gave you the cold shoulder. I didn’t mean it. I…”

“I understand.” Catherine broke free from his hold. “I was also a pawn in your plan. The more frightened I seemed, the more complacent and delighted Wesley would become. He felt as if he was a cat trying to catch a mouse. No doubt, he thought of himself as the winning party, whereas I was the mouse that got fooled.”

Her clever words made Shaun feel guilty.

“Cathy, I’m sorry. Considering the seriousness of the issue, I promised Prime Minister Nathan not to breathe a word of it. None of the Snows knew about i t either. Ryan and Rodney just discovered the truth today, and even the prime minister’s wife didn’t learn about it until the last minute.”

Shaun continued with a deep voice, “ It’s because Nathan wanted to make all his betrayers in Canberra surface. He needed to get rid of them completely. In order to prevent the news from spreading, those involved in this matter had to keep it a secret.”

Catherine remained quiet for a long time.

She used to think of Nathan as a gentle person, yet it did not hit her how a gentle person could possibly become the prime minister.

It just showed that he was a manipulative and vicious person.

He left his family in a state of panic and fear. Even Freya was totally unaware of it. When others were helpless and frustrated, he took advantage of it to deal with his opponents.

“Cathy, I promise you that such an issue won’t happen again.”

Shaun’s eyes were filled with tenderness and guilt.“ I know it was unfair to you, but I was left with no choice. If Gavin had taken control of Australia, Wesley would become more powerful. I wanted to keep you out of trouble, so I had to completely destroy those who mean to harm you. I want you and the kids to be able to go out freely so you guys don’t have to keep hiding and think about fleeing Australia. This is your home, after all.”

His eyes appeared calm under the moonlight.

“Additionally, I want you to know that I’m no longer the previously useless Shaun who couldn’t even look after his wife and kids. I was so stupid that I was deceived and even lost my memory. Now, I’ve become more brilliant than before.”
