Chapter 71 Unexpected Phone Call

Stephen then drove Cherry home, but when she intended to get out of the car, he suddenly grabbed her arm.

Cherry didn't know what Stephen wanted to do, and instead looked at him in confusion.

He turned to Cherry, and said, "Cherry, just tell me if you don't want to live here, and I'll take you away."

Stephen knew that it was Jackson's home, and that Cherry was Jackson's wife. Although he shouldn't have said those words, he still followed his heart nonetheless.

Cherry shook her head, and said, "Thank you, Stephen, but I'm happy here for Emily, " and after she paused for a couple of seconds, she continued, "and Jackson."

Cherry then got rid of Stephen and walked into her home.

In fact, Cherry didn't care a moment about what Stephen said, because her longing for Emily and everything that they had done together had captured her heart. She didn't care about the rest of the world, and instead decided to let things flow on their natural course.

After Cherry came back home and curled herself on the sofa again, she again blankly stared and didn't utter a word. She was alone, but she felt better than she had been back in the bar; she missed Emily.

When Jackson returned home, he felt his heart bleeding when he saw her sitting in the sofa, motionless.

He quickly hung his military jackets on the coat-hanger, and then walked towards Cherry and sat beside her. He gently took her into his arms, and called her, "Baby."

Jackson was worried about her, and hugged her tightly in his arms. He felt his heart ache because Cherry was very sad, and wondered when would she ever recover to her former happiness.

Cherry quietly snuggled up to Jackson's chest.
