Chapter 78 Leave Without Informing Others

At the international airport

After she got out of the taxi, Cherry saw Stephen waiting for her, and walked towards him.

Stephen also walked up to her, and saw that she had only brought one piece of luggage with her. He asked, "Cherry, are you sure that you'll be fine with just that bag?"

"Yes, I'm sure, " said Cherry.

She then took the ticket and passport from him and looked at the boarding time on the ticket. She said, "The flight will take off pretty soon, so I better go in."

Stephen was wistful, and while he soulfully looked at Cherry, he said, "Cherry, can you reconsider? I... I don't want you to leave."

Cherry took a deep breath, and while she pretended to be strong, she said, "Stephen, you already know that I want to live my own life."

Then she turned her head sideways, because she feared to look at Stephen. She knew that her heart was already too fragile to bear another hit, and if Stephen tried to persuade her to stay, then she might change her mind.

Stephen knew the sadness that lied deep in Cherry's heart, and he didn't ask her again, even though he was regretful. He comforted himself, 'I'll be happy as long as she is happy.'

"Well, will you at least contact me later?" Stephen hoped that he would speak to her again, and that his sadness will be eventually relieved in the future.

However, Cherry shook her head, and replied, "Well, Stephen, you already know that I want to start fresh, so I don't think that I'll contact you anymore."

When Stephen looked at Cherry, he saw tears in her eyes. At that moment, he felt that his heart had been slashed by a knife, but yet he couldn't say anything.
