Chapter 197 The Missed Calls

Cherry waited for a long time, but she got no answer from Jackson. She was slightly disappointed, and all of her expectations vanished in an instant.

"Why can't you leave her?" asked Cherry. She was eager to get an answer out of him, and couldn't wait any longer.

Jackson looked at her, and slowly said, "Honey, it's my fate, and I just can't simply cut her out for the rest of my life."

After she heard his words, Cherry guessed that something definitely happened between Jackson and Sally, and she had been afraid of that ever since she had talked to Stephen and Sally last time.

"Can't you just tell me what happened between the two of you?" asked Cherry, and after she thought about it more, she added, "Why did she leave you in the first place? Why did she come back again?"

Jackson wasn't going to tell Cherry anything about it. She was the one that he tried his best to protect, and he thought that it was best for Cherry to keep those things hidden away from her.

He said, "Baby, you don't need to know about those things, okay? The only thing that you need to know is that I love you with all my heart." Jackson tried to evade answering her question; he wanted her to never know the truth.

Cherry knew that Jackson was keeping something hidden away from her, and that he refused to tell her about it. She couldn't understand why, and even though she wasn't part of his former life, she now was, after all, his wife. Why couldn't he just tell her the truth? She wanted to know his past, and she also loved him with all her heart. Cherry wanted to be with him, there was no question about that, but why wasn't he honest with her?

Cherry then pushed Jackson away, and coldly said, "Then go and sleep in your own room!"

"Baby!" called Jackson, while he pulled Cherry back into his arms. He never wanted to leave her side.

"Let go of me!" shouted Cherry, as she fiercely refused him. She then said, "Since you can't forget Sally, you should go and see her!"

Jackson's face then fell. He couldn't understand how she could punish him to go to another woman when he loved her so much.

Cherry turned her head away and refused to look at him any longer. She then grabbed the quilt and wrapped herself tightly in it.

Jackson was somehow hurt when he saw Cherry's reaction, but he still recklessly held Cherry tight in his arms from behind.
