Chapter 39 The Crime Of Destroying A Military Marriage

Andrew gazed at the three of them but said nothing. He knew his grandson's intention. After all, he had a vivid memory of things that had happened years ago.

Seeing this situation, Jean could not hold herself back and asked, "Jackson, why don't you introduce this girl to us? You must know her, right?"

Everyone looked at Jackson and wondered how he would introduce Sally He.

Sally He noticed Jackson's embarrassment, so she hastily introduced herself, "Hello, I'm Sally He. I've heard that John got married, so you must be his wife. Am I right? You're so beautiful!"

But Sally He's compliment did not distract Jean. She still looked at Jackson and Cherry and then she turned to Cherry.

"Cherry, are you sad for this woman? Or for your husband's wound?" Jean asked, aggressively.

Before Cherry could answer her question, Jackson coldly said, "Jean, heed your status. She is my wife!"

His words silenced Jean. Jean was angry and she wanted to retort back, but she dared not offend him when she looked at Jackson's cold face. Jackson was dangerous even when he was wounded.

Lucia felt that the atmosphere was a bit tense, so she hurriedly said, "Jackson, just take care of yourself in the hospital. If you need anything, let me know."

"Even though I need something, I don't need you to satisfy my needs." Jackson replied, coldly.

John was a bit angry, so he said, "Uncle Jackson, how dare you speak to my mom like this! After all, she is your sister."

"John Ye, who are you to lecture me?" Jackson was impolite with everyone.

John said nothing.

Cherry saw that Jackson had donned a long face and was cruel to everyone.

"If he doesn't have the right to lecture you, do I?" Cherry said, stood up and released Jackson's hand. Then she took a few steps back to distance herself from Jackson.

Jackson looked at Cherry, astonished. He hadn't expected her to react this way.

Cherry pointed at Sally He and then looked at Jackson, saying, "If it hadn't been for her, would you be wounded? Would we have become like this?"

Hearing Cherry's words, those around realized that the reason why Cherry was mad at Jackson was actually because Sally He had come back.

Jean intended to exacerbate their contradiction, so she asked, "That's it! No wonder Cherry has been crying so sadly. It is because she has been wronged and nobody knows."

"Jean, this is not time for you to thrust your nose in my business!" Cherry was angry, too. How dare Jean say that in such a situation?

"Cherry!" Jean said, angrily, "Who the hell are you to lecture me?" Don't blame others for your own poor fate! You are a bitch! Just like your shameless mom! Both of you deserve to be abandoned. Both of you are the fifth wheel, no matter where you are!"
