Season 5


(Come back to me (1)

Mond waited anxiously at the door of the hospital emergency room, feeling very guilty about the mess he had caused. He was responsible for all of it and it wouldn't have happened if he hadn't intended to cause a rift between Cherry and Jackson. Due to him, Cherry had fainted and was now in a fragile state.

She had landed up in the emergency room.

Drowning in guilt, Mond stared at the hospital ceiling in anguish. Maybe he should stop his thirst for revenge before something goes horribly wrong. He decided there were other options available to him. What if he had a calm, rational discussion with Jackson and sorted things out? Then, he could finally be at peace and the past would be the past. That would mean that Cherry wouldn't be dragged into his plans again and she could lead the life she wanted.

At that moment, the door of the emergency room pushed open and a doctor came out. While Mond was debating what his plan of action would be, the door of the emergency room opened and his heart skipped a beat. A doctor came out to give news on Cherry, Mond rushed to the doctor and asked hurriedly, "Doctor, is she okay?"

"Yes, all of her vitals are stable and she's also awake. You may go in to talk to her," assured the doctor. Mond rushed into the room to check on Cherry.

Cherry lay on the bed with a pale face. Her disposition looked weak and she had no expressions on her face. When Mond came in, she did not even react to his presence and stared at the television instead. She blamed Mond for the whole incident though he had helped her by bringing her here. If he hadn't called her and told her about Jackson sleeping in the compound, none of this would have happened. Now, her marriage was in a place she wasn't sure it could come back from.

Mond walked towards Cherry's bed and worry bloomed in his heart. She looked very weak and helpless. He asked with concern, "Cherry, Are you okay? Are you uncomfortable now? Does it hurt?"

Cherry stubbornly ignored his words and continued her stare battle with the television. She had no desire to speak to him.

Interrupting the awkward silence in the air, a doctor walked in expectantly, with a file in hand. She was middle-aged and female, who specialized in treating women.

"Are you Cherry?" The doctor looked at Cherry and scolded her, "Being a pregnant woman, you need to take better care of your health as well as your baby. You can't afford to fall sick like this. Don't forget, you still have 8 months to go before delivery."

Next, she fixed her eyes on Mond and instructed, "Take good care of your wife and give in to all her demands, even if they are erratic. Make sure she gets plenty of vitamins for her nutrition and gets good sleep too. Currently, she is very weak and cannot afford to stay up late from now on."

Ever since the doctor had begun talking about pregnancy, Cherry and Mond's heads had been spinning. They just stared at the doctor speechless, mouths agape.

"Doctor, what did you just say? I'm pregnant?!" Cherry couldn't believe what the doctor just said. She was pregnant? She was going to have another child?

The news was slowly sinking through her mind. But the timing was horrible. It looked like she and Jackson were going to end things. She didn't want another baby with him.

Mond also looked at the doctor in shock, trying to process the news they had just heard. Was Cherry really pregnant?

Though he wasn't her husband, he did want to take care of her. After all, it was his fault she had ended up in this situation. He just hoped that she would gradually get better and be fine.

"Yes, you are one month pregnant. Congratulations! The details are in this file, go through it," said the doctor, handing Cherry the file. She then left the ward to give them some space.

Cherry looked at the file and had paradoxical emotions. On one hand, she was excited to have another child. But as soon as she remembered the precarious position with Jackson, her heart grew heavy and she became anxious. Her emotions burst and she began crying out loud, "No! I'm not pregnant! How can it be possible? The doctor is just messing with me."

Seeing Cherry's agitation, Mond soothed her, "It's going to be okay, don't worry. I will be there for you, even if Jackson is not. Please calm down."

"Tell me it's not true! It can't be! It's impossible," Cherry finally let out, unable to stop her tears.

Mond was at a loss of what to do. He had no idea how to deal with her when she was being emotional. Suddenly, he hugged her in an attempt to comfort her.
"It's okay. Yes, you're pregnant but everything will work out. Calm down," assured Mond.

Cherry fell weakly into Mond's chest and cried, "Five years ago, Jackson was with Sally when I was pregnant, and I worked so hard to bring Joe up by myself. And now..." Cherry collapsed into Mond's chest and completely wet his shirt with her tears. She cried into it while saying, "I went through a pregnancy all on my own five years ago when Jackson was with Sally. I brought Joe up by myself but I can't do it..."

Cherry didn't complete her sentence but instead said, "No! I refuse to believe the result!"

Mond's eyes got misty as he understood Cherry's pain and anguish. She had already been through a pregnancy on her own, without the support of her husband.

It must have been a painful period and she couldn't possibly do it all again. She was afraid that she would be alone again during her pregnancy, with nobody to take care of her. She was afraid of the hard life of a single mother, now with two kids instead of just one.

"Easy! It's okay, Cherry, I'm here with you." Mond didn't know what to say. No words seemed to hold any weight in light of the gravity of the situation.

Cherry gradually calmed down, but she just stared blankly ahead, without saying a word. She needed some time and space to process her pregnancy.

After a while, Cherry and Mond walked out of the hospital while Mond supported her with his arm.

As they stood at the door of the hospital, Mond asked, "Where are you going? I'll come with you wherever you want to go."

Cherry continued to ignore him and gave no answer.

Mond waited for a long time and found that Cherry had no intention of answering him, he then looked at the line of her sight. Jackson was standing nearby.

Jackson didn't even get angry when he saw Cherry standing together with Mond, but just fixed his eyes on Cherry, realized she was pale. He wanted to protect her on seeing her emaciated body. He wanted to hold her tightly in his arms, and give her all his tenderness. In this lifetime, he wanted to give all his love and tenderness to only Cherry, but the question was, was she willing to accept it?
