Chapter 102 I Can't Fall Asleep Without Mommy Around

After leaving the tea house, Cherry didn't go home. Instead, she directly went to the hospital. She had found out that John had been sent to the nearest hospital by some kindhearted people.

She finally found John there, in one of the wards in the hospital. His head had already been bandaged. Seeing this, Cherry felt a stab in her heart.

"I am sorry, John. This is all my fault, " said Cherry, sitting beside the bed and looking into John's eyes. She didn't know what else to say except offer apologies.

Despite going through a great deal of pain himself, John comforted Cherry and said, "Cherr, I am okay. Don't worry. It's not your fault. We all know what kind of person my uncle is!"

Cherry did not say another word when Jackson came to mind. She did not know how to face him anymore. He had become so cruel and terrible that he seemed no longer like the man that she had once known. Could five years change a man to this extent?

It was already very late by the time Cherry went back home. Jacob and Elsa had already gone to sleep and only Wilson was waiting for her in the living room.

Seeing Cherry back, Wilson hastily walked towards her and asked, "What took you so long to come back from work today?"

"There was some company related work to attend to and I had to work overtime." said Cherry, who then lowered her head and got busy into changing her shoes.

"But it shouldn't have been so late. You must be very tired!" said Wilson. He really did care about Cherry very much.

"I am not tired, brother. You should go and get some rest, " answered Cherry. She raised her head a little bit while speaking and then lowered it again in an instant.

Wilson was a very observant man. He could tell there was certainly something wrong that had happened with her. When he took a closer look at her, he noticed Cherry's bruised cheek.

He took hold of Cherry's arm and lifted her head. When saw her swollen face, Wilson was suddenly very irritated and angrily asked, "What has happened?"

His heart ached at seeing her face and he couldn't believe that someone had slapped her. Did this man have a death wish?
