Chapter 43 Being Reluctant To Part

A week went by quickly, and the wound on Jackson's back healed.

One morning, he was reading a newspaper in the living room, while Cherry was watering the flowers on the balcony.

Suddenly, the doorbell rang, and Jackson stood up from his seat to open the door, and Cherry also walked into the living room.

After he opened the door, Jackson found that it was Derek.

He looked at Jackson happily, and asked, "How are you? Has your wound recovered after the long rest?"

"I'm not that pampered yet; I'm used to wounds, " answered Jackson while he entered the bedroom, with Derek behind him.

When he saw Cherry, Derek sent his regards to her politely. "Good morning, sister-in-law, " he said.

Cherry nodded, and was prepared to get Derek a glass of water. "Good morning, " she replied.

While he sat on the sofa next to Derek, Jackson asked, "Why have you come to my house today? Are there any new instructions coming from the army base?"

Cherry gave Derek the glass of water. After he took a sip out of it, he said, "Yes, the vacation applied for you by your grandpa has expired, and you should be back at the army base tomorrow. There are a lot of things that you need to handle."

Cherry sat beside Jackson, and remained quiet as the two men talked.

"Can't you handle them?" Jackson leisurely looked at Derek. During this period, he had enjoyed a comfortable time at home alongside Cherry's company, which had made him even forget his identity as a soldier.

"What do you think? You hold the highest commanding power, and our men can't do anything without your approval. Rules are rules. Who dare violate it?" Derek then felt that Jackson said these words just like an idiot would.

All of a sudden, it seemed that something occurred to him, and with a wicked grin, he said, "Do you mean to say that you don't want to go back to the base because you can't leave my sister-in-law anymore?"

Derek then turned his eyes onto Cherry, but she didn't know how to face him and instead only lowered her head, embarrassed.

Jackson was angry, and as he looked at Derek's face, which deserved a hard beating, he said, "Haven't you learned a thing since I taught you better last time?"
