Chapter 217 What About You

Cherry thought for a while as she looked into Elsa's eyes, but still didn't tell her the truth. She said, "Mom, I'm not lying to you. I told you that Jackson has a bad temper and that he's cold to everyone, and you can understand that some disagreements inevitably come up sometimes living together with him. There's no need to worry about me."

Looking at her stubborn daughter, Elsa asked with dubitation, "Really?"

"Mom, don't you believe your daughter?" Cherry spoke to Elsa like a kid.

When Elsa saw that she couldn't get anything out of her daughter, she said, "It's okay as long as you're fine. Take care of Joe."

Cherry nodded, and said, "Mom, how about you go to the next room to accompany Joe? I have some business to discuss with my brother."

"Okay, I haven't played with my grandson for a long time, " said Elsa with a smile on her lips.

Cherry walked her mother to Joe's room, and Elsa stayed to play with Joe. Cherry and Wilson then left the room.

"Brother, let's go to the study; I'll have a word with you." said Cherry.

"Okay, " said Wilson.

Immediately after they entered the study, Wilson asked his sister, "Cherry, what happened? Why won't Jackson let you out of the house?"

Cherry then looked at Wilson, and seriously said, "Brother, I found out some things about Jackson's past; he doesn't want me to know about them, so he imprisoned me here in the house, and won't allow me to even go outside the door's threshold."

"What did you find out?" asked Wilson. He was somehow nervous, and thought, 'People who are so mysterious like Jackson must have plenty of secrets.'

Cherry didn't plan to lie to Wilson, because she believed him. She asked, "Do you know Sally He?"

Wilson nodded.
