Chapter 179 Joe Will Be Okay

When the elevator opened, Cherry saw that Jackson had raised his hand to hit Joe.

She quickly ran out of the elevator and pushed him away, and then she tightly held Joe in her arms.

"What were you going to do?" said Cherry, with her eyes glaring on Jackson.

When Joe saw his mommy, he jumped into her arms and suddenly burst into tears.

"Mommy!" cried Joe with tears flowing down his cheeks. He had been frightened earlier by Jackson, but now he was safe and sound in his mommy's warm arms, and couldn't help but let out tears of joy.

"Don't be afraid, Joe, mommy's here now, " said Cherry as she caressed Joe's head and tried to comfort him.

Afterwards, Cherry took a look at Selina, which made her feel embarrassed. After all, she was the one who had called Jackson and started the whole mess in the first place, and now Selina felt guilty for that.

Selina immediately shook her hands and explained, "Cherry, it's not what you think! My brother wasn't going to hit Joe!"

But before Selina had the chance to finish her words, she was interrupted by Cherry.

"Was it you who told him?" Cherry thought that her guess was correct. She had told Jackson to stay at home and wait for her, but she found him nearly hitting their son at her workplace. She was sure that Selina had been the one that betrayed her. Because according to her acquaintance with Selina during this period, she knew that Selina was so close to Jackson, and almost told him everything.

Selina wanted to explain herself but had no chance. "It's not like that, " she said.

All of a sudden, Jackson grabbed Cherry's neck and stared at her from up close, somehow studying her. "You haven't told me who's the boy!" he said.

Cherry wanted to resist Jackson but couldn't, and his hand seemed to be locked on her neck. He had grabbed her with true fury burning inside of him and was nearly suffocating her.

Struggling, Cherry said, "He, he's my son..." Now that Jackson had already found out the truth about him there was no need for her to hide Joe from him any longer. She had intended to tell Jackson about him sooner or later, but it had never occurred to her that he would find out in such a disturbing circumstance.
