IN LOVE WITH A SOLDIER
(A simple explanation (1)
Jackson then drove to the JS Group, and directly took the elevator to Selina's office room on the top floor.
When he arrived there, Selina was talking business matters with several of her senior managers. Selina was a bit surprised to see Jackson suddenly come out of the elevator.
"Brother, why are you here?" asked Selina, paying all of her attention to Jackson.
When they saw Jackson, the senior managers who were sitting in Selina's office immediately started to diligently nod at him. All of them knew in their hearts that the real boss of the JS Group was none other than Jackson.
Jackson glanced at all of those people, and then said to Selina, "Are you busy now?"
"No, I was just arranging something for them. I'll be finished soon," answered Selina.
"Okay, then go on with your work, I'll make myself a cup of tea meanwhile," said Jackson, and then stepped towards the tea room.
Selina quickly told a couple of things to the senior managers and then let them leave.
After she watched them get out of her office, Selina walked to the tea room to speak with Jackson.
Sitting on a chair in the tea room, Jackson was drinking his tea and enjoying the scenery outside the window.
"Brother, how come you're free to come here and talk to me?" asked Selina, as she sat on a chair opposite to Jackson.
"I just wanted to come here and visit you," replied Jackson, still looking at the scenery outside.
"You came here to see my Sister, didn't you? Oh, you have only eyes for my Sister. Have you ever thought of caring about somebody else once in a while?" said Selina calmly.
It seemed that Selina read Jackson's mind, because what she had just said was exactly what Jackson thought and felt in his heart. Thinking about Selina's words, Jackson had to admit to himself that he put Cherry in the center of his heart all the time, and that she was the most important person to him in the whole world.
"You smart girl!" a smile curved Jackson's lips.
Selina laughed, and then said, "What a pity, Brother! You'll be disappointed to hear that my Sister is not in the company right now."
After he heard her, Jackson shifted his eyes from the window onto Selina, and asked her, "Where is she then?"
Selina innocently answered him, "She went out to talk about a contract with one of our corporate partners. The other side nominated Cherry to do that, and I didn't have a choice but to assign her for the job."
"Does that mean that Cherry's ability has been approved by these clients?"
Jackson still felt very confused about that. How excellent could Cherry actually be if a client asked for her specifically to negotiate the contract?
Selina thought for a while, and then summarized everything for Jackson. She said, "Something like that, but my Sister's work skills are pretty good. But still, the one who get the most praises is still you, Brother." After Selina paused for a moment, she continued to say, "So many people say that you have a wonderful wife, and not only is she a special lady, but she's also an excellent and talented worker. Cherry's a skilled and versatile woman."
Jackson felt very happy in his heart and valued Cherry very much. She was all the fortune that he had in the world.
Catching the brief smile on Jackson's face, Selina went on to say, "By the way, is my Brother busy? Why didn't he come here with you?"
"I'm not clear about that, but who knows, maybe he's looking for a girlfriend," said Jackson, and then took a sip out of his cup of tea.
Selina couldn't help but open her eyes wide, and as she stared at Jackson with astonishment in her eyes, asked, "Are you sure about that?"
Jackson didn't answer Selina's question, and instead asked in reply, "I heard that you got along well with my brother-in-law. Is that right?"
Selina's face flushed hot red when she heard that Jackson referred to Wilson. She suddenly lowered her head, and in a small and shy voice said, "Did Cherry tell you that?"
"I already knew that, even though she didn't tell me anything about it. Even Joe knows that. He said that Auntie Selina is going to be his Uncle Wilson's wife," said Jackson with a big grin on his face.
"What!" Selina then looked up at Jackson, and asked, "Even Joe knows about it?"
"What do you think?" asked Jackson with indifference.
"How disgraceful! Then Joe must think that he can make fun of me!" As she thought about the little naughty boy, Selina felt a bit uncomfortable in her heart. She had already heard from Wilson that what his nephew thought in his mind was totally different from that of the ordinary kids of his age. Wilson believed that Joe might have been influenced by the western culture when he lived abroad, or that it was caused by Cherry's efforts to nurture him. In a word, it wasn't a good option for normal people to provoke the little mischievous sprite.
"Joe said that he would be very happy to call you Aunt," said Jackson smiling.
'This simple girl feels shy for falling in love with someone. Selina is still a young girl that needs to learn a lot more about life,' thought Jackson.
"I have to talk with that boy one day," said Selina, while she staring in front of her, pondering about something deep in her heart.
Jackson then burst into laughter again. He put down the cup of tea on the table, stood up from his seat, and said to Selina, "Alright, I want to go out for a while, but I will come back later to see your Sister. When do you think she will be back?"
"I don't know, but if you have something to do, go and sort it out first. You can come here later in the afternoon, Cherry will surely be back here by then," said Selina.
You can come here later in the afternoon, Cherry will surely be back here by then," said Selina.
"Okay, then I'll go first," said Jackson, and then left the tea room.
Jackson walked into the elevator feeling happy in his heart. He would finally set his mind at ease if Selina married Wilson. Wilson seemed to be a nice person, and furthermore, he was Cherry's Brother, so that made Wilson his Brother too. He believed that he could trust him, and that he would be with him on the best of terms.
After the elevator arrived at the ground floor, Jackson got out it, walked across the lobby and left the JS Building.
But Jackson suddenly stopped in his tracks when he was on his way to his car.
Mond parked his car in front of the JS Building, and then both Cherry and him got out of it.
Mond walked to Cherry's side, and with a smile on his face said to her, "You've arrived, and your own car is in the building's parking lot. Someone will bring you the key in a short time."
"Alright, thank you," said Cherry, while she nodded at him.
Mond started to look around, because he knew that Jackson had to be somewhere close by. He had already arranged for the coincidence, and he scouted the area around him to find his enemy.
Finally, Mond found the person that he was looking for. Jackson's face had turned gray, which met his expectations perfectly. How could Jackson stay indifferent when he saw his wife with another man?
Jackson looked into Mond's eyes and started to walk close to them. His eyes were burning bright with rage inside of them.
Cherry tried to find the answer to her question by following Mond's gaze, but she was immediately stunned when she saw Jackson coming towards them.
"Jackson!" Cherry couldn't help but call out his name and step backwards.
Mond also noticed Cherry's reaction. She had quickly taken a few steps away from him, and he wondered, 'Is that because she cares about him? Does she keep her distance from me because of Jackson?'
