Chapter 216 I'm Fine

Jackson picked up the phone.

"Hello, " he answered it.

Wilson heard Jackson's voice, and said, "This's Wilson."

Jackson was somehow shocked, because he had never thought that Wilson would call.

"What's up?" asked Jackson coldly.

"Is Cherry at home? I called on her mobile, but she didn't answer, " said Wilson, pretending to know nothing of what was happening.

"Yeah, she's at home. You can tell me why you called her, " said Jackson indifferently, as he always was with him.

"Nothing serious. My father and aunt just want to drop by and see Cherry and Joe, " said Wilson, trying to be as nice and polite as he could not to anger Jackson.

"Tonight?" asked Jackson, bewildered.

"Yeah, we were just about to leave, " answered Wilson.

Jackson thought for a moment, and coldly said, "Okay. We haven't had dinner yet, but we can eat together when you arrive here."

"Alright, we'll be there soon. Tell Cherry and Joe that we're coming."

"Okay, " said Jackson, and then hung up the phone.

Jackson entered the kitchen and told Lily, "Prepare more food. We'll be having guests tonight."

Lily seemed to be surprised, and said, "Of course, Mr. Jackson."

Jackson intended to leave the kitchen, but then he turned around, and asked, "What did Cherry do today?"

Lily thought for a moment and then stopped what she was doing. In a downhearted manner, she answered him, "Cherry didn't eat anything all day. She locked herself inside her room and didn't come out all day."

Jackson suddenly lost his temper, and shouted at Lily, "Then why didn't you put the damn food on a tray and take it to her room!"

Lily was taken aback, and said, "Even when I took the food upstairs, Cherry didn't want to open the door. What can I do?"

"Where're the spare keys? Are you stupid, or what? Why didn't you use the spare key to open it?" Jackson shouted at Lily furiously. He thought, 'Cherry hasn't eaten anything all day. Isn't she hungry?'

Lily lowered her head and fell silent, because she saw that Jackson was very angry.

Jackson turned round, left the kitchen, and went straight upstairs to her room.

After he arrived in front of Cherry's room, Jackson pushed the room door open, and saw that Cherry was sitting at the desk helping Joe do his homework.
