IN LOVE WITH A SOLDIER
(Buy her a villa (1)
She was very happy to hear the news, but she knew that she couldn't let herself be infatuated by Jackson. She had to remain lucid in her thoughts, so she didn't say anything at first.
After a while, Cherry suddenly said, "I'm feeling hungry. Would you like to have dinner with me?"
How could Jackson ever refuse Cherry? The answer to this question was clear to him, and Jackson immediately replied, "Of course I'd like to! I'll make the reservation first and then we'll go downstairs to have dinner together."
Cherry nodded, and said, "Okay." After she watched Jackson walk out of the room, Cherry fell on the sofa, bereft of all of her strength.
She was afraid that Jackson might find out that she wasn't in the best of moods when he came back, so she quickly gathered up all of her courage and pretended that everything was fine.
Jackson went to the reception, asked the receptionist to book a table for him and Cherry, and then left.
On his way back upstairs he called Bobby, and ordered him, "Find out who has helped Wilson out of the crisis."
Bobby replied, "I'm already on it, Mr. Jackson!"
Jackson walked into the room and gently said to Cherry, "Let's have dinner downstairs."
Cherry then immediately stood up from the sofa and walked towards him. She said, "Alright."
Jackson took Cherry into his arms and kissed her forehead, and then went downstairs together with her.
They had dinner in the hotel's dining room, but Cherry didn't utter a word and instead just ate her food in silence. Sitting across from Cherry, Jackson saw his wife slowly eating her food and felt happiness filling his heart.
Cherry suddenly noticed that Jackson didn't eat anything, and asked, "Aren't you hungry?"
Jackson shook his head, and said, "I'm not that hungry, but you are, because you've worked all day. You have to eat more." He then paused for a second, and continued, "But you can always resign and stay at home; I'll provide everything for you."
Cherry then laid down her chopsticks and seriously said, "No! I want to work."
Cherry continued, "Besides, we don't even live together. Why do you want to support me?"
Jackson heard Cherry's words, but he wasn't angry that she refused him; instead, he felt happy when he looked at her angry face. He thought that Cherry was as cute as she had always been, and he felt that he had no other choice but to obey her wishes.
At that moment, Jackson noticed a man and a woman who were not that far away walking towards them.
Cherry also noticed that someone was walking towards their table and she turned around to see them better.
When they came closer to the, Jackson Chu realized that it was the Zhang couple.
Mr. Zhang, the owner of a small company, smiled at them, and said, "Mr. and Mrs. Chu, we feel honored to meet you here."
Jackson stood up and shook president Zhang's hand. Cherry also stood up from her seat and nodded to Mrs. Zhang with a smile on her face.
Mrs. Zhang flattered Cherry, and said, "Mrs. Cherry, you are as beautiful as when you married Mr. Jackson five years ago!"
Cherry slightly smiled, and replied, "Thank you! You're very beautiful, too."
Mr. Zhang laughed when he heard their words, and said to Jackson, "Women never stop talking about this topic, don't you think so?"
Jackson slightly smiled, and instead of answering Zhang's question, he pulled Cherry into his arms.
Jackson asked, "Will you also be dining here this evening?"
Mr. Zhang smiled, and said, "Yes! My wife told me that the food here is delicious, so we decided to come and eat dinner here. We were surprised to see you, and oh, by the way, congratulations! Mr. Jackson, now that you've won the Future Project, you'll make a fortune! Please partner with me, and make my small company benefit from it too!"
Jackson looked at Zhang, and unevenly replied to him, "Mr. Zhang, you know that I'm not the one in charge of the JS Group, so I can't decide if the Group can partner with your company or not."
Mr. Zhang didn't stop smiling, and said, "All businessmen in the city know the close relation between you and Miss Selina of the JS Group. What's more, you're so rich that the whole business world can follow your orders, let alone the JS Group."
Jackson said, "Mr. Zhang, let's stop this now, and instead talk about business when we're actually doing it."
Reading between the lines, Mr. Zhang stopped talking, and Mrs.
Zhang also knew that Jackson didn't want to talk about business at that time. She instead looked at Cherry, and asked her, "Mrs. Cherry, can we go out for a tea sometime?"
Cherry noticed her politeness, and replied, "Of course! When I'm available, I'll invite you."
"Great! Then I'll be waiting your call, " said Mrs. Zhang. She gently smiled at Cherry, and then continued, "I'll be taking my husband to our table to also eat dinner."
Both Jackson and Cherry nodded. Mr. Zhang also nodded back and then left with Mrs. Zhang.
After watching them leave, Jackson said, "They really don't know who they are."
Cherry knew what Jackson meant. Owners of some small companies would often ask everyone they met to help them make bigger profits, and Jackson thought that they were dreaming of partnering up with him.
Cherry sat back on her chair, and said, "Aren't there a lot of people that flatter you, Mr. Jackson? I thought you were used to that."
Jackson also sat down and looked at Cherry. He didn't answer Cherry's question, and instead said, "But your performance just now is worthy of admiring, Mrs. Chu."
