Chapter 302 Friend's Happiness (Part Two)

Mond watched Cherry while she was deep in thought, but he said nothing. He wanted to see what conclusion Cherry drew.

Cherry looked at Mond, carefully wording her question, "Has Jackson bullied you in the past?"

Mond smiled scornfully, looking at Cherry, "Cherry, you are very silly."

Being called silly by Mond, Cherry felt a little embarrassed, because she was berated by a stranger. Actually, that was merely her guess, but Mond's tone was really harsh after she said what she guessed.

Noticing Cherry's expression was a little strange, Mond realized he was out of line just now. He was used to speaking his mind in front of Sally and Jean, so when he talked to Cherry, he said things he thought as usual.

Mond said, "I'm sorry for what I just said."

Cherry shook her head. A helpless look appeared on her face as she stared at Mond and said, "You do not have to apologize, Mr. Mond. You're the CEO of ZM Group, so you must be used to lecturing people. I can understand."

Mond didn't know what to say and thought to himself, 'Did she say that to show how generous she is? If she were Sally, she would retort or humiliate him, but Cherry was just polite. She lives up to the title as Jackson's wife. I won't admit that she is his wife though because, in my heart, she isn't Jackson's wife at all.'

Cherry noticed Mond's silence. She thought of what she had found in the reading room and she believed that Mond knew Grandpa.

"Mr. Mond, " Cherry paused a moment and then continued, "You must know Grandpa Andrew, right?"

When she mentioned Andrew, Mond's heart filled with hatred. He thought to himself, 'That man is so manipulative. How can he be called Grandpa! He should be in hell!'
