Chapter 103 It Is Her

The next morning, Cherry bolted through her breakfast and rushed to work.

When she arrived at the office, she immediately started to work at her desk, like every other day.

Just a few minutes later, the manager came over and asked her to send over a document to JS Group's subsidiary.

She nodded and took the task dutifully.

After the manager left, she searched for the route on her computer and then set off for her destination.

Inside the office building of the JS group, when the elevator reached the first floor, she rushed out of it and in the process, knocked straight into someone who was coming her way.

She felt a sudden pain on her temple. It seemed that she had hit it against strong chest. The touch of the clothes felt like that of a military uniform.

"I'm sorry, " said Cherry as she looked up.

In the next second, both Cherry and Derek were shocked.

Derek could not believe his eyes. The woman standing in front of him was Cherry, Jackson's wife. What was she doing at JS? Why was she here?

"Ch-cherry?" Derek called out in utter astonishment.

Cherry also realised only then that it was Derek she had bumped into. She had thought he would have been a random stranger.

"Derek..." she called softly and then dropped her head.

"What are you doing here? More importantly, when did you come back?" asked Derek, who felt his head rushing with a surprise mingled with delight. He could not help thinking of Jackson who would finally cheer up to know about the reunion.

Cherry involuntarily touched her hair, not knowing what to say.

Finally she blurted out, "Derek, I'm in kind of a hurry and I really have to go now. Bye!"

Then she turned around and walked away before Derek could even come up with any response.

As Derek watched Cherry disappear, he felt exhilarated. What a wonderful thing it had been to see her back!

All of a sudden, Selina came up from nowhere, flung her arms around Derek's neck and said in a fiendish voice, "Brother, are you staring at hot girls?"

"Yes." Derek nodded with a smile. His eyes still lingered on where Cherry's figure was leaving.

"You are looking at hot girls? Really?" Selina had not thought that her chiding would actually be a true guess.

It suddenly occurred to Derek that Cherry had been holding some documents. Would she possibly work here?
