Chapter 144 Baby, Don't Leave Me Alone

After a while, Cherry put on her clothes. She stepped downstairs and saw that Jackson was busy cooking in the kitchen. He was a respectable and decent gentleman in the outside world, but now he was just a man cooking for his wife.

All of a sudden, Cherry's heart was filled with love, and she walked up quietly behind him and hugged Jackson leaning against his back.

Jackson felt Cherry, and as he smiled, he softly asked, "What's up, baby? Why did you come here? Just wait for me in the dining room, I'll finish here soon."

After she heard his sweet words, Cherry really wanted to tell him that she didn't want to leave him. She knew that once she spoke these words she had to abide by them; however, she hadn't figured out how to live with him yet.

At that very moment, the doorbell suddenly rang, and Cherry was taken aback. She wondered, 'Who could it be?'

Jackson was astonished and also wondered who could be outside the door.

Cherry then left Jackson's back, and said, "I'll get it."

"Okay, " nodded Jackson, thinking that it might be Derek.

Cherry happily walked to the door and opened it.

Outside, Sally had thought that Jackson would be the one who would answer the door. When she saw it open, wearing a smile on her face, she said, "Jackson!"

But her grin immediately froze when she saw Cherry standing in front of her instead.

When Cherry saw that the person at the door was Sally, and that she was calling Jackson's name so sweetly, all the happiness in her mind quickly faded away.
