Chapter 42 Questioning

When Jackson learned that Cherry was at Emily's home, he rushed there with Derek.

Emily heard a knock on her door, she went to the door and opened it. The next moment, she was surprised to see the two men standing outside.

"Jackson Chu, why are you here?" asked Emily.

"You should know what I'm here for, " said Jackson, coldly.

Of course she knew. She looked at Jackson and said, "Cherry's still sleeping on the sofa. Don't disturb her."

With these words, Emily walked into the room, beckoning Jackson and Derek to come in, too.

As soon as Derek and Jackson entered Emily's house, they saw Cherry curled up on the sofa.

Emily whispered, "I don't know what happened between you two. Cherry refused to talk about it. But I hope you won't hurt her. She has lived a really hard life since she was a child."

Jackson listened to Emily's words without defending himself. He looked at Cherry, who was asleep, and felt distressed.

Standing next to Jackson, Derek looked at Cherry but did not say anything either. He could not comment on Jackson's private affairs.

Emily looked at her watch and was nervous. She said to Jackson, "I must go now, otherwise I'll be late for work. Please take good care of Cherry. There's food in the refrigerator. Bring her some when she wakes up."

Jackson nodded, without saying anything.

Derek thought that Jackson was going to stay here for a while, so he said to Emily, "Let me drive you to work."

Emily had not expected Derek would say this. She asked, shyly, "Is it convenient for you?"

"It's okay. I guess that Jackson is not leaving now. And I have nothing else to do, " said Derek. Derek was trying to give Jackson and Cherry more privacy to get along with each other. Seeing that they were both suffering, as Jackson's good friend, he too felt miserable.

Emily nodded when she saw that Jackson was not against the plan.

After Derek and Emily were gone, Jackson slowly approached Cherry. He sat on the sofa and looked at his woman, who was sleeping. He felt a touch of sadness flow through his heart.
