Chapter 14 Second Encounter At The Bar

Two weeks later, Jackson's wedding with Cherry was held with the substantial support of the Chu household. The Shens attended the ceremony. Though Jade was still concerned about the bride price, she did not know how to bring up this topic. Remembering what Jackson had said to her before, she held back and remained silent from the beginning to the end of the ceremony.

Seeing Jackson and Cherry walking down the carpet, John was pained, but there was nothing he could do. He was the one who had hurt Cherry, and now the man Cherry was marrying was his uncle. He could only watch his beloved get married to another man. This was a pain that he will not forget his entire life.

After the wedding ceremony, Jackson and Cherry moved to the luxurious villa in the countryside, a wedding present from their grandpa. Seeing the grand house that now belonged to her, Cherry was pleased. She had been dying to own this kind of a warm house for a long time.

Looking at Cherry's cheerful face, Jackson too felt elated. Unknowingly, this woman's mood could influence his. He always felt relaxed whenever she was joyful, and he felt vexed when she was upset.

Earlier, every day had felt mundane and Jackson would rather spend time with the troops than go back home. But now, after his marriage, he wanted to stay at home 24 hours a day, and keep this woman in his sights all day.

Bringing a bag with her, Cherry planned to go to the bar to visit Emily, who had been her bridesmaid at the wedding ceremony. She hadn't yet expressed her gratitude to Emily. Today she had the time to see her. She should not forget her friend just because she was now married!

When she entered the bar, Cherry saw Emily mixing drinks at the counter. She walked towards her, elated.

"Sweet girl, give me a glass of wine, please." Cherry pretended to be a customer.

Emily was happy to see that it was Cherry, "Cherry, you have come!"

"Yes. What?time?do?you?get?off?work? Let's go shopping." Cherry said, with a smile on her face.

"There is still half an hour left. How about sitting there and waiting for me?" Emily replied.

"Okay, got it."

Cherry sat in the corner and waited for Emily to finish her work.
