(The wedding Is over(1)

In an unassuming corner of the hall, Hellen had her eyes fixed on Jackson. She had been watching Cherry's husband for at least half an hour now, nursing her crystal goblet. She observed him quietly and discreetly, deliberately noticing every move and smile.

'It's been a long time since I observed him. Unfortunately, he's a married man. I can't flirt with him without destroying his life. My mission is to watch him carefully, without getting him into trouble, after all, ' she mused to herself, her eyes still trained on Jackson.

As the wedding ceremony had finished, the guests began to leave once they had finished their dinners. Standing before the window in the corridor, Derek gazed down at the view, lost in thought. 'It feels so weird. My sister is now married, to another man. She is going to live in his house instead of ours. I hate to separate from her. How I wish that we could live together, forever!'

"Derek," Selina called, breaking him out of his thoughts. She tilted her head at him, seeing only the back of him.

Selina's voice made Derek turn around to see his sister approaching him.

"Are you free now?" Derek asked. He knew the duties of the bride would have kept Selina busy today. Since the feast was over now, she had the responsibility of escorting the guests to the exits.

"Yeah. Actually, I don't have much to do at the moment. Elsa and Jacob are accompanying the guests to the door for me. So I came here," she answered, her voice lacking her usual sweetness. She was coming to terms with the fact that this wedding meant a big change: she was no longer a young girl, but a married woman, a grown-up.

Slightly embarrassed, Derek tried to put on an air of formality. "Selina, be a sensible and dutiful wife in the Yuwen Family. You can always visit me when you miss me," he told her. He wasn't sure what else to say. What would one say to their now-married sister when he was sure she was just his spoiled sibling only hours before?

"Derek, what are you talking about? The Lu Family's residence is still my home too. I will frequently go back. Don't think I've left our family just because I'm married to Wilson now. My name is Selina Lu and don't you forget it!" Selina lectured passionately. Derek watched her turn back to his spoiled sister again.

Derek held up his hands in surrender. "When you're right, you're right," he yielded, with no intention of displeasing his favorite sister.

"Derek," Selina continued seriously. "I announced my decision at the wedding."

Her eyes flashed with realisation. "You're annoyed at me, aren't you? I had you take over the JS Group without even asking you first."

A warm smile adorning his moonlit features, Derek stroked his dear sister's face. "You silly little girl," he cooed gently. "How could I blame you? Since you've intended to give up on JS Group, I'll take responsibility for it and try my best at managing it. After all, I am the owner of JS Group."

Selina had long suspected that JS Group was owned by the Lu Family, instead of the Chu Family. And now, Derek had confirmed her suspicions. 'I had first thought the registered capital of JS Group was from Jackson.' It wasn't until Jackson had founded the JC Group to enter the entertainment industry did she doubt that Derek had founded the JS Group. She thought that perhaps her brother was so close with Jackson that he didn't pay attention to the title. Now, Selina didn't mind this either.

After all, she and Jackson were family now too. Having married Wilson, she was now Jackson's sister-in-law.

Besides, Jackson got on so well with Selina and Derek. She thought that she had tried her best to manage JS Group and she could leave it to Derek without feeling guilty, disregarding whoever owned the company. She was also confident that Derek was capable of handling the job.

"Derek, I had guessed that JS Group was yours and Jackson in fact didn't provide the capital," Selina told him calmly and casually, as if she had known the truth for a long time.

It wasn't surprising to Derek that Selina was so composed. He knew she was a very shrewd girl and it wasn't implausible that she could have figured out in just one day.

"When you returned from your time abroad, I didn't reveal it to you because I was afraid that you might grow too stressed. You and many others were convinced that Jackson was the real boss of our company, and I just let you all believe it as you wished," Derek explained.

"I know. The three of us are indeed very close. Jackson is as important to me as you are, and he treats me as his own sister," Selina replied, taking a short trip down memory lane.

Selina cherished her childhood very much. As a child, she had been a naughty and outgoing girl. With Jackson and Derek by her side, she was unafraid to bully any she wished for she knew that they would defend her under any circumstance, especially Jackson. He had always been brave and strong, the leader among all the kids in the military residential compound. No one dared disobey his words or bully those he protected. Under his and Derek's protection, she was never bullied and enjoyed a merry childhood.

Look at the three of them now. They each had their own lives, and Jackson was even a father with an adorable son.

Things had definitely changed a lot, but she knew their friendship wouldn't be weakened. She still regarded Jackson as her big brother. As for his wife, Selina always respected Cherry and enjoyed time with her. She even considered Jackson's wife as her own sister and confidant whom she could confide in.
