Chapter 101 Displeasing The Chu Family

In the morning, Cherry got up early to get to work. Processing yesterday's orders to the manager and making herself busy with her own tasks, Cherry spent the whole day without anything unexpected happening.

She walked out the JS Building after work, as usual. Her phone, kept away in her bag began to ring suddenly when she was about to drive her car out of the parking lot.

Taking the phone out, Cherry saw that it was John, and she answered the phone.

"Hello, John, " said Cherry in a cold tone.

"Cherry, have you gotten off work now?" John asked with concern.

"Yes, I just got done with work now, " said Cherry.

"So are you free now? Would you like to have a cup of tea with me?" John offered.

Thinking about it for a while, Cherry thought that it would mean nothing to have a cup of tea with John since she had no affection for him now.

"Okay, where do you want me to come? I'll try to get there soon, " Cherry said decidedly.

"Come to the Ancient Path Tea House", replied John.

Cherry drove to the teahouse after hanging up. All that while, she wasn't aware that there was a man following her.

When Cherry got to the place, she found John occupying a seat in the corner, so she just walked up to him.

"You are here, " said John.

"Hmmm, " Cherry sat opposite to John.

"How are you doing these days? How is everything at work?" John asked with concern. He had not seen Cherry since the last time they had met at the cemetery. He had only spoken with her on the phone. Luckily, both of them were free today, so he could meet her here and ask her about her wellbeing.

"Well, fine", said Cherry simply. Seeing John's caring attitude, Cherry spoke to him as though he were a regular friend, "so, how are you doing these days? Are you keeping very busy?"

"Not really, it's just the same as before. Sometimes there are some things that need to be handled, while sometimes, I am free, " said John.

Cherry nodded, letting him know that she was listening to his words.

John continued, "Cherry, how could you join the JS Group?"

Cherry felt a bit surprised when she heard the question. Why couldn't she join the JS Group? She had employed her own abilities rather than nepotism to be one part of the JS Group, so why couldn't she get the position she had earned?

"Why do you ask that? Do you think I could not get into the JS Group?" asked Cheery, with a hint of anger in her voice.

He didn't mean that and he just wanted to clarify to her that
