Episode 42

(She didn't know(2)

"Mr. Jackson, do you have any instructions for me?" Bobby asked respectfully.

"Is there any news about Eric and Jonson? What have they been doing lately?" Jackson asked straight-forwardly because he felt he didn't need to hide anything from Bobby.

"The two bosses have been waiting for your news about the tokens, and the others have no changes, just as usual," replied Bobby calmly, but he was somewhat delighted. Hopefully, Jackson intended to meet Eric and Jonson, now that he was asking about them.

Jackson nodded slightly, and then went on, "You go to meet them today and fix a time with them. I want to meet and talk to them about the tokens. And I need to invite them to have tea, apologizing for meeting them so late after my Grandpa's death."

"Ok, Ok, I'm going to meet them now. They have always wanted to see you, but feared that you are too busy to have time for them. Since you intend to meet them, I will go discuss with them and arrange a meeting for you as soon as possible," Bobby hastily replied with a smile.

Worry tightened Jackson's chest as he nodded, but he refused to let it show. "Well, go back to work and call me if you have any problems," said Jackson.

"Ok." Bobby left Jackson's office in a good mood.

Jackson sat at his desk, meditating. What he was going to do next was quite dangerous for himself, but if he did nothing, he didn't know what to explain to Eric and Jonson. It would prove impossible to control them if they grew suspicious enough to find out the truth on their own. The pair might get angry, and the consequences were unimaginable. Even if the tokens were finally found, it would cause a dispute. Therefore, he had to take measures now to deal with these things and minimize the damage.

It was noon before Derek finally came to the bar. Usually, visiting with his good friend would alleviate most of Jackson's worry, but seeing Derek sitting in the chair opposite Jackson's desk didn't have the normal effect. "What happened?" Derek asked.

"I'm going to meet Eric and Jonson." replied Jackson, whose usually confident voice was now hesitant.

"Now? But we haven't found the tokens yet. Besides, they knew what happened to the butler," Derek sputtered. If they made the wrong move at such a key moment, it was unimaginable what might happen next.

"That's exactly the reason why I'm going to meet them," said Jackson.

"So what are you going to tell them?" asked Derek.

"Tell them the truth," Jackson asserted. Derek was taken aback at his old friend's words. "You are going to tell them that the tokens are gone. Are you sure?"

"It's impossible to hide it from them, so I think it's better to tell them what happened and then discuss with them about what should we do next," Jackson confirmed. He knew what he was going to do was very dangerous, but it's the only way he could figure out now. If Eric and Jonson wanted to see the tokens when they met him and he couldn't meet their demands, they would surely be suspicious. If that happened, he would have not only lost the tokens, but also lost their trust, which was very dangerous for him for the future.

"But Jackson, it's really dangerous to tell them the truth." Derek worried a lot about Jackson. He didn't know what Eric and Jonson would do if they knew the tokens were gone. Fear gripped his heart, fear of Jackson's fate.

"But it's the best way to solve this problem now," Jackson maintained, looking into Derek's eyes.

"But it's too dangerous. Eric and Jonson, they're used to taking orders only from Andrew, and you're not familiar with them. If they think the tokens are in your hands, they may stay under your control, but what if they know you don't have the tokens? It's too risky, they might rebel.

You'd be put in danger without anything to gain." Derek didn't want Jackson to take the risk. It was all too uncertain.

"These are all things I have to face.

Grandpa died and they have to change their boss, and they must see the tokens if I want them to listen to my orders. Once they realise I can't get the tokens out, how would they react? You should know that very well," Jackson countered.
Derek didn't know what to say. He knew well what Jackson said was true. If Jackson told them the truth, he would get a chance to negotiate with them peacefully. But if Jackson lied to them and didn't show the tokens to them, they would turn against Jackson.

When Jackson saw that Derek didn't intend to answer, he went on, "Derek, I just want to minimize the damage. If I have the chance to talk to them peacefully, I will tell them what I'm thinking. That is, I want them to live their own lives, and I live mine. They don't need to take orders from anybody in the future."

"But this is too much risk. We don't even know where the tokens are now," Derek continued softly.

"Yes, I don't know where they are now, maybe they will appear one day, but for now I have to act as though they are gone," replied Jackson in a helpless tone. He tried fighting the uncertainty here, but it was futile.

Derek remained silent.

Thinking quickly, Derek wondered aloud, "Are you sure the tokens are not at home? Cherry and Joe, they don't know where the tokens are, right?"

Jackson nodded, musing in response, "They are definitely not in the villa. And I have looked for them in the residential compound for some time, but nothing. The butler didn't find them, then how could I?"

After that, Jackson continued to say, "Cherry might have some idea. I will go back to ask her once again this evening. Joe certainly wouldn't know though. Grandpa wouldn't tell anything to him since he is just a kid."

Derek thought for a while and agreed. The tokens were not at home. If Cherry and Joe didn't know where they were, then where were they now?
