Chapter 145 Something Had Gone Wrong (Part One)

Cherry felt bad for him. 'I don't want to go either, ' she thought. 'But what about Joe? What should I do with my son now?' She felt very frustrated and confused, and also felt that she wasn't prepared enough for the first meeting between father and son, because there were some other things that needed to be dealt with first.

Eventually, Cherry made up her mind, and as she pushed Jackson away, she said, "Jackson, I'm really sorry."

After she said this, Cherry left resolutely, without looking back at Jackson for a moment.

Jackson looked at Cherry's disappearing figure and felt as if he had lost something crucial to his own existence, but why? Why couldn't he keep his beloved wife beside him? Wasn't he trying hard enough already?

Cherry walked out of the apartment and got inside her car, still feeling emotional; she had no idea how she had managed to get out of there. She couldn't bear to leave Jackson, but for the sake of her son she had to, so that Joe could live a good life.

After Cherry calmed down she started the car's engine and drove away from the apartment building.

Inside a red car, not far away from where Cherry's car was parked, Sally was silently observing her every move. After she saw Cherry leave, a flame of hatred lit in her heart, and she thought, 'Cherry, you've forced me to hurt you, so don't blame me for whatever I'll do next!' Infuriated, she continued on her train of thought, 'Jackson, since you love her so much, I have to find a way to destroy her completely, or otherwise you'll never pay attention to me or love me.'

Then, she also started her car, and left.

Cherry drove her car to the JS Group and pulled over at the parking area of the building. After she entered the administrative area, she saw that Caroline was terribly overwhelmed with almost everything that needed to be done that day in the office.
