Chapter 150 Surprising Discovery

"John!" eventually cried Cherry. She was also very surprised to see him there.

John was accompanied by his secretary. He gestured to him to leave first, and after the secretary left, he turned to Cherry, and said, "Cherr, what are you doing here?"

"Well, uh..." Cherry wasn't quite sure whether she should tell him about it or not. She thought for a while, and finally said, "I'm here to meet Jackson."

"To see my uncle?" John couldn't believe his ears. He continued to ask her, "Are you together with him again?"

Cherry shook her head, and replied, "No, I just have something that I need to talk with him."

John saw that Cherry looked pretty anxious, and it seemed that she indeed had something urgent with him. Concerned, he asked, "What is it about? Can I help you?"

Cherry quickly refused him, "Oh, no, thanks; it's about my brother."

"Wilson?" John immediately guessed that it had something to do with Wilson; he was the only person that Cherry called brother.

"Yes, " replied Cherry, while nodding her head lightly. She didn't know why, but she regarded John as being a reliable friend, and told him everything frankly. "My brother's company is facing financial difficulty, and I want to ask Jackson to help the company pull through."

"Why did you ask him for help?" John felt a little bit strange. He knew his uncle well, and he knew that he would never do anything without gaining a benefit out of it.

John continued to ask, "Did he tell you what his give-and-take conditions were?"

"No, he just told me to see him here."

John thought it over for a while, and then looked into Cherry's eyes, and said, "Cherry, do you believe in me? If you do, then please don't turn to my uncle for help. Don't worry, I'll figure something out how to help you with your brother and his company."
