Ice and Fire

Chapter 82 Do You Love Me

Derek pulled Jackson out of the apartment and placed him inside the car. As he drove to the residential compound, he called the Chu house butler and asked him to call in for a doctor.

Andrew's heart broke when he saw Derek help his grandson get out of the car. He also saw that his hand was bleeding, and he couldn't bear to see him like that, because Jackson had never been hurt in the past; he was in that condition because of Cherry.

Jackson sat on the sofa, and the doctor started to bind up his wound while Derek and Andrew were standing beside him and watching.

Jackson didn't care about the pain. His eyes were glassy, and his mind was filled with a deep hatred for Cherry. He thought to himself, 'How could she just leave me like this? How could she dare abandon me and leave me alone?'

After the doctor finished bandaging his wound, he reported to Andrew and then left after receiving his permission.

Andrew looked at Jackson, and sat beside him, and wanted to comfort him, he instead was silent.

After some time, Andrew slowly said, "Jackson, please don't be sad; I'll help you to find her back."

Andrew didn't expect Jackson's answer. But to his surprise, Jackson suddenly talked.

He replied in a cold tone, saying, "No. No matter."

Andrew, Derek, and the butler were all a little astonished when they heard his reply. They wondered what Jackson meant with it.

Jackson didn't look at his grandfather, and instead stared straight ahead, and slowly said, "If she wanted to run away, let her stay away."

Derek then clearly saw tears falling from Jackson's eyes.

He was astonished, because this was the second time that he saw Jackson crying. The first time that he had seen him cry was when Jackson had been very young. Back then, Jackson's parents had died, and Jackson had kneeled down in front of their portrait and cried. When Sally had left him years ago, he had just panicked, but hadn't cried, but this time, he did for Cherry.

Andrew also saw Jackson's tears and he was very sad. He had always been very fond of Jackson, and he had never wanted to see him hurt, but Jackson had now been hurt by a woman. He thought to himself, 'Many years ago, Jackson has begged me to help He Clan for Sally He, but he hasn't cried for her. Now, Jackson declines my help, but he cries.'

Feeling the tension in the air, Derek said to Andrew, "Perhaps Jackson has his own thoughts. Just let him handle this by himself."

and then looked at Jackson. He thought to himself, 'My grandson is all grown up, and he's able to handle things on his own from now on. Indeed, I should let him
