Ice and Fire

Chapter 47 Love Through Phone Calls

Before lunch, Harrison took his chance to talk to Cherry while Andrew was not around.

"Cherry, why are you giving me this attitude?" Harrison asked.

"So tell me what attitude should I have towards you?" Cherry retorted.

"I am your father, " Harrison was a bit agitated. He finally realized how it felt to be treated disrespectfully. He cursed silently, 'Cherry, how dare you ignore me like this after your marriage to Jackson!'

"Have you ever acted like a father to me? Do not tell me that, in the past twenty years, you had no idea what I have been through." Cherry was not afraid of Harrison at all. Now that she was married to Jackson, she was backup by the Chu household. If Harrison and Jade ever wanted to mess with her again, they had lost their chance.

Harrison was speechless. Of course he knew how Jean and Jade had treated Cherry all those years. He also remembered how he had turned a blind eye to that.

He also realized that Cherry was behaving nothing like she used to in the past. Back then she was such a obedient girl. He said, angrily, "Cherry, do you think you've become strong and tough now with Chu clan's support? Is that why you are so arrogant?"

"Yeah, I feel like reborn, " said Cherry. Feeling like venting her emotions, she continued, "I have been mistreated by all of you for so long. Am I not allowed to feel good about myself now? You remember how Jade bullied me, how Jean beat me and stole John away from me. And you, my so-called father, you never cared about me. Thanks to all of you, I have become who I am right now. I should give the credit to all of you, that I finally picked myself up and married into such a powerful family."

"I should have never married you into that family, I should have sold you off in a remote place!" Harrison exclaimed, angrily.

Cherry chuckled, "It is a shame that you wanted to sell me for a good price. But you seem to have actually mistaken me for Jade. Did you end up gaining even a penny?" Cherry was actually amused as she thought through the whole thing again. Back then, Jade was clearly intimidated by Jackson's temperament. Jade had failed to make anything out of her wedding.

"Cherry, you..." Harrison was completely infuriated. He wanted to give Cherry a piece of his mind. But before he could even begin, Cherry had given him a lecture!

Glancing at the door, Cherry pretended she was looking at something. She then said to Harrison, "This is the Chu residence where we are standing right now. Do you really want my grandpa to find out how I have been treated?"

Not until then did it occur to Harrison that he was still at the Chu residence, not his own house.

He fell silent after that.

During lunch, Cherry had given Andrew her full attention and kept serving him food. And Andrew praised Cherry to Harrison heartily. After lunch, Cherry and Grandpa Andrew both felt joyful. Except Harrison, who had a forced smile on his face. He tried hard to come up with compliments. Cherry knew that Harrison must be feeling very uncomfortable.

After lunch, Harrison excused himself early and then left.
