(Recalling the past)

Sally hooked Jackson's arm around her shoulder and they staggered towards the bed.

She dropped Jackson carefully on the bed. When she got a glimpse of Jackson's handsome face, her heart skipped a beat at the sight and she couldn't help but caress his face with her hand.

"Jackson, do you have any idea how much I love you? I'm back because I want to be with you forever. Can't you love me as much as I love you?" Sally lamented.

Even though Jackson was drugged, he could still feel another hand on his face. His mind willed his hand to swat it away but his hand won't move.

He tried to open his eyes but his eyelids were too heavy. He tried a few more times but still failed. He moved his fingers and felt the bed under him.

An image of Cherry flashed in his mind. "Cherry, baby," Jackson cried.

Sally's face paled when she heard Cherry's name. The drug knocked out Jackson but she couldn't understand how Jackson still remembered Cherry and even looked for her.

Sally laid beside Jackson and whispered in his ear,"It's me, baby, it's Sally. Don't you remember me?"

Jackson heard Sally's voice and knew it wasn't Cherry's.

"Sally?" Jackson guessed. He tried to push her away from him. He doesn't want anyone but Cherry beside him.

"Yes, Jackson, it's me!" Sally turned his face to face hers. "I love you, Jackson. I've never stopped loving you!"

Sally was wrapped up in Jackson that she didn't hear the door open.

Hellen Wu entered the room, followed by two men.

While her claret-red hair covered her face and clothed in black tight-fitting clothes, Hellen stood tall inside the room. She may be a tiny woman but stood taller than the two men with her, garbed in dark blue clothes.

Hellen Wu stood her ground by the doorway, her hands on her hips. She kept her eyes on Sally on top of Jackson on the bed. Her aunt, Lily Wu was right. Jackson was in danger.

Hellen cleared her throat. "Sally He."

"Jackson?" Sally thought she heard Jackson say her name. Sally gently slapped Jackson's cheek. "Jackson, did you just say my name?"

Hellen realized Sally did not hear her. She breathed out hot air from her nose. 'What a bitch!' she thought.

She stomped nearer and demanded through gritted teeth and a loud voice,"Have you no shame, to do something as indecent as this?"

Sally finally heard Hellen. She jerked her head towards the door and found Hellen and the two men inside the room.

Sally scrambled off Jackson and stood by the bed to face Hellen.

"Who are you? How did you get in here?"Sally asked, as she stared into one of Hellen's angry eyes, the other covered by her hair.

"Do you think you were safe here?" Hellen retorted. She pointed to Jackson's unconscious form. "Do you have any honor seducing a married man?"

"This is none of your business!" Sally shouted! She could feel her face turn red as she stared Hellen down. She couldn't let this strange woman stop her plan or there would be hell to pay.

Hellen's rage rose as Sally glared at her. "You ungrateful wretch," Hellen replied.

'This person needs to be taught a lesson, ' Hellen thought.

She walked closer to Sally, her hands still on her hips, and stared at her.

The lights were dim in the room, with the curtains pulled tight. But a small ray of light peeked through and shone on Sally's face.

Hellen used the light to study Sally's face and noticed a small detail. She asked Sally,"Are you Mark He's daughter?" She kept the glare in her eyes.

Sally gasped at the question. She unknowingly took a step back. Only a few people knew her father's name. How did this woman know it?

Sally looked at Hellen from head to toe and assumed they were about the same age. Did they know each other from before? That would make sense that Hellen knew her father's name. Her father had been dead for years and few people still remembered him. Jackson might not even remember his name anymore! But this woman knew his name. Who was she?

Sally was filled with confusion and scrambled her brain, trying to think of something related to this woman.

"Who the hell are you? How do you know his name? How do you know my father?"

Sally questioned Hellen. Nothing else mattered. She had to know how this woman knew her father. She always kept the memory of her father buried deep in her heart. And when she said his name, it all came back to the surface and the heartache and the past returned.

Instead of answering Sally, Hellen slapped her on the cheek.

The room was silent except for the loud slap.

The two men did not move and waited for Hellen's orders.

Jackson remained unconscious on the bed, oblivious to everyone and everything happening in the room.

Sally caressed the cheek that Hellen just slapped. She looked at Hellen with such fury in her eyes.

"Well? Are you mad? Are you going to slap me? Try me then, I probably won't hit back," Hellen provoked Sally.

Sally wanted to but she didn't trust this woman. She knew nothing about this woman. For all she knew she could be a contract killer. She had no idea what this woman could do to her.

Hellen knew that Sally was more arrogant than scared. She probably thought she was still so noble after all these exile years.

"Sally He, if you do this again, I will make sure you will have a shameful end. And I will bury you far away from your father," Hellen warned Sally.

Sally felt fear as Hellen bored her fury-filled eyes on her. Sally didn't know her well but she knew Hellen was serious. And she knew Hellen would do what she said and Sally didn't want to be away from her father.

Tears fell down Sally's cheeks.

Hellen ignored Sally. She turned to the two men and pointed to Jackson. "Carry him out," she ordered.

Hellen took out a card key from her pocket and handed it to one of the men,"Bring him to this room."

They took the card and moved Jackson out of the room, without saying a word.

Sally tried to stop the two men from taking Jackson but Hellen's fierce eyes stopped her. She stood still, silent.

"Are you going to stop them? They will probably cut off your legs to stop you," Hellen warned her. However, her words were no empty threats. Her men would do anything she told them to do, whatever the cost.

Sally kept quiet, especially since she still did not know who this woman was!

"Who are you? Why do you know so much about us?"Sally knew this woman knew more than she said.

"I don't need to tell you anything," Hellen replied and turned to leave.

Before Hellen could step out of the room, Sally asked,"Did you grow in the army residential compound, too?"

Hellen stopped at Sally's question.

Sally knew she hit a note when Hellen stopped. She pretended not to notice because she wanted answers.

Hellen faced and stared down Sally. "Because only those who grew up in army residential compound know these things? What about Mond? Did he grew up in the army residential compound also?"

"You know Mond?" Sally was shocked. There weren't a lot of people who knew Mond's past. In fact, if Mond didn't come for her, she would not know either. How did this woman know? How did she know so much?

Helen smirked. She asked Sally,"Isn't his life story interesting? Bastard child of the Chu family. I'm afraid people will associate him with that title his entire life."

Bastard child? Sally shivered. If Mond were here, he would not take this humiliation standing up. He was a proud person and he would not allow this woman to embarrass him like this.

Sally stayed silent and hoped her silence could encourage Hellen to share more.

"Miss Sally, if you want to stay in this city, then be on your best behavior. Don't make trouble. If not, you only have two choices, leave and stay alive, or die in my hands." Hellen turned on her heel and left.

Sally let out the breath she held when Hellen's back was no longer in her sight and the door slammed shut. She collapsed on the floor.

Her mind was in a jumble! In such a short time, so much had happened. She brought Jackson to this room, and this woman showed up, took Jackson, and threatened her.What was she going to do to her? What was she going to do to Jackson? Would Jackson be safe from her?

Sally then remembered her father. Oh, how she missed him! She was his most beloved daughter and her father loved her so much.
