Ice and Fire

Chapter 65 When Is The Funeral

Jean, who was trembling frantically, also came downstairs. As she stood at the foot of stairs and saw the horrible scene and all the other people, Jean couldn't help but cross her arms on her chest in dismay.

John shook his head. He couldn't believe what he saw, and asked, "How did this happen?"

Derek turned his head to look at John, who stood a few feet away from them, and Jackson didn't move, but instead fixed his eyes on Cherry. At that moment, he didn't care about anyone else around him, because the only person that Jackson really cared about was his wife, Cherry, his one and only concern in the world.

After a while, Jackson then slowly walked up to Cherry. He wanted to comfort her and give her a warm hug, and he wanted to tell her that he was there, and that he would always be there for her.

Jackson stood next to his wife and gently said, "Baby." Then he wanted to touch Cherry's arm with his hand.

But before Jackson could touch her, she shook off his hand.

Cherry then gave Jackson a heavy slap. If it hadn't been for Jackson, she wouldn't have come to Emily's house in the first place, and her friend would have still been alive.

Jackson felt his face burn. He definitely was in no mood to blame her. In the contrary, he gazed into Cherry's tear-filled eyes, and felt guilty. She was his wife, and she was crying in front of him, but there was nothing that he could do, and as he looked at the miserable woman in front of him, Jackson felt his heart ache, as if a sharp knife was stabbing it, over and over again.

When he saw that Jackson was slapped, Derek immediately got angry. No one had ever dared to hit Jackson before, and even if Cherry was Jackson's wife, she still had no right to hit him.

Derek went towards her, and snapped, "Cherry! Who the hell are you? Who are you to hit him?"

Derek's tone was more than terrible, and his irate face was as horrible as Jackson's cold face.

Jackson fixed his eyes on Cherry, and when he noticed that Derek was approaching Cherry, he stopped him, caught him by the shoulder, and growled, "Go away!"

As he looked at Jackson's reaction, Derek was even more furious, because Jackson was still protecting his wife after her disrespectful gesture.

"Jackson, look at you! How could ..." Derek started speaking, but before he could finish, he was quickly stopped by Jackson.
