Episode 8

(Protect my woman (2)

Jackson was relieved that Cherry wasn't upset anymore. He smiled as he gazed down lovingly at Cherry, and gently stroked her cheek. He concluded, 'I am so lucky to such a smart, considerate wife who knows me so well. She's the perfect partner and mother. Joe inherited some outstanding genes from her.'

Cherry wanted to know, "Jackson? What are you going to do to Mond?" Her eyes reflected her curiosity as well as concern.

There was a look of consternation on Jackson's face, and he furrowed his brow as he considered Cherry's question. After a short time he told her, "I don't want to hurt him."

"But Jackson, he hates you so much…!" Cherry blurted out. She couldn't understand why Jackson didn't want to hurt Mond. She wondered, 'Did Jackson do something horrible to that hurt Mond at some point?'

"Well, to be honest, if I were him, I would probably hate me too," admitted Jackson.

His admission left Cherry with more questions than ever, and she couldn't help probing deeper, "Does Mond have reason for such a deep hatred of you?" Jackson looked away, so Cherry couldn't see the shame or pain he felt. "Maybe." he murmured.

Derek walked in slowly, balancing four cups of coffee carefully, on a tray.

As Derek approached he quickly peeked at Cherry. On seeing she no longer looked angry, he remarked teasingly, "Well now Jackson, you appear to have a talent for knowing how to calm Cherry down quickly."

"She's my woman, of course, I do!" Jackson asserted in an overbearing manner.

Cherry knew Jackson didn't want to continue their discussion anymore, so she dropped it; fearful he would become upset.

"Derek, what have you and Jackson been doing to keep busy lately? What're your plans?" Cherry asked as she smiled warmly at Derek.

Derek handed Jackson a cup filled with coffee, and his eyes twinkled mischievously, "We pretty much, just hang out killing time and relax." His brows wrinkled some when he paused, and as he handed Cherry her cup of coffee, "As for a plan? We haven't actually figured that part out yet," Derek shrugged casually.

"Well, I think you two have rested enough! It's about time for you gentlemen to come up with a plan!" asserted Cherry in a very motherly manner.

Derek smiled, "Yes, ma'am!" taking Cherry's words to heart.

Jackson sat on a sofa leisurely sipping his coffee in silence.

Selina returned just then carrying a pile of papers.

"Jackson, here are the JS Group's financial files for you to review. Please, let me know if there are any errors in my work," Selina smirked as she handed them over.

"This is a serious matter! Act accordingly!" huffed Jackson in mock anger as he took the papers from her and started to read through them.

"Oh, okay.…" Selina nodded as she replied obediently. She looked over at Cherry grinning and made a silly face, childishly.

"Selina! You're as naughty as Joe!" exclaimed Cherry, giggling helplessly.

"Cherry? How could you say that? I'm Joe's Auntie!" Selina gasped, pretending she was offended.

"How can you be so naive?" teased Derek while gently patting Selina's head.

"Derek, mind your behavior! Keep your hands to yourself!" Selina dodged as she warned Derek, and swatted his hand away from her head.

"Why can't I pat your head? I'm your older brother!" Derek smirked cockily.

Cherry joined in the teasing and added, "Maybe Derek, you aren't allowed to anymore. It could be she is protected by someone's now."

Cherry had a big, knowing grin as she looked at Selina slyly.

"Cherry…!" Selina sharply inhaled, her face turning bright red instantly, and lowered her head. She knew Cherry was referring to Wilson.

It took Derek a moment to figure out who Cherry meant, "Oh! I nearly forgot, Wilson watches over you."

"Derek, why did you have to say that? Don't you realize it's embarrassing?"

admonished Selina. She caught Cherry grinning, and looked at Jackson. He was smirking too while pretending to be focused on paperwork; Selina felt her face growing hotter and redder. She thought it unwise to display her affection for Wilson publicly.

"Why? Why wouldn't I be allowed to mention him by name? Jackson and I are very relieved you have Wilson to safeguard you, because we don't need to worry as much." Derek snickered and turned to ask Cherry, "Cherry, what do you think?"

"Even if I'm dating Wilson, you and Jackson are my brothers! You'll always have to watch over me," retorted Selina as she glared and thought, 'Damn that Derek! How dare he say that! No way! He's my brother!"

"Isn't Wilson your man now? Then he can shoulder the responsibility of looking after you," Derek sounded serious as he teased his sister. He added, "Or, is it that you don't want him to get hurt because of you?"

"You…" Selina's eyes sparked with anger, and she pursed her lip, too angry to speak. Inside though, her heart soared, and she was thrilled. Anytime she thought of Wilson; she felt complete and satisfied.

When Cherry saw that the bickering wasn't going to end, she spoke up, "Alright, enough now. Selina, don't fret.

I'm sure Wilson can take care of you and will keep you safe. He has experience, and he used to watch over me, as his little sister, so, you are in capable hands. I am sure you will be fortunate and supported in the future."

Jackson, busily perusing the statements, suddenly, tossed the documents aside and wound his arms around Cherry's waist, after listening to Cherry. He said in a brutish way, "You are my woman, and I'm the only man you need guarding you. Right?"

Jackson gave Cherry a severe look. He wanted to her to always know; she was his woman, and he would keep her safe unfailingly. She would not need anyone else's protection.
