Chapter 23 Crack Outside The Door

Lucia spoke,"Grandpa, we're here today so that you can meet John's fiancee. If you think it's okay, Edwin and I plan to hold a wedding party for them."

"Oh, I see," said Andrew, as he looked at Jean standing next to John.

Jean was delighted when she saw Andrew's eyes turn to her. "Great-grandpa, how do you do? I'm Jean Shen and you can call me Jean," said Jean.

"Jean," said Andrew as he carefully observed her.

Jean continued,"Well, great-grandpa, if I'm married to John, the relationship between our two families will become closer, since I'm Cherry's elder sister and my father is Harrison Shen, the CEO of the Sheng Group."

"Oh, really?" It was obvious that Andrew was a bit surprised. He looked at Cherry and asked,"Cherry, is she your elder sister?"

"Yes Grandpa, she is."

"Ha, ha! The close relationship between the Shen family and our family seems to be really predestined."

"Then Grandpa, do you agree with their marriage?" asked Lucia.

Everyone in the living room looked at Andrew. If he nodded, this matter was a done deal. Even if John wanted to resist, it would not make any difference.

Jean anxiously looked at Andrew, since his decision would decide her future life.

Andrew did not answer. Instead, he turned to Jackson and asked with a smile on his face,"Jackson, what's your opinion? If you think it's okay, then it is okay."

Nobody could believe that Andrew had asked Jackson to make the final decision.

Jean immediately became nervous. The one who could decide her destiny was now Jackson instead of Andrew. She had some inkling of Jackson's way of doing things and she was no longer sure if she would end up marrying into the Ye family or not.

Jackson looked poised. He calmly asked Cherry, who was in his arms,"Darling, what's your view?"

Everyone was shocked again. John, who had been patient all this while, couldn't help but walk up to Cherry. He said,"Cherry...". He couldn't speak further and could only shake his head to indicate that he did not want this marriage.

Seeing John's anguished expression, Cherry knew at once that he did not want to marry Jean. His eyes were full of anxiety. It seemed that if he was forced to marry Jean, he would die at once.

Jean walked up to them and stood between Cherry and John when she saw what was going on. She wore a forced smile and said to Cherry,"Cherry, you will not destroy my happiness, will you?"

As she spoke, she suddenly grabbed Cherry's hand.
