Stephen took Cherry to his office and had her sit on the sofa. He took out a medicine bag and applied ointment on Cherry's wounded hand.

"Is it hot water that hurt your hand?" Stephen asked.

"Yes. It was an accident, " Cherry said.

"How have you been recently?

It seems like you are feeling a bit blue, " said Stephen. What he wanted was the truth, instead of his guesses.

"No. I'm good." Cherry wanted to cover her depression, but she couldn't.

"Does Jackson stay at home?" Stephen kept asking. He had not heard the truth yet.

"He... he... he went back to the army barracks." Cherry did not know how to lie glibly, so that Stephen would not figure out the truth.

"Really?

Does he know you are hurt?" Stephen wouldn't stop asking questions.

Cherry replied, impatiently, "Could you stop mentioning him?"

Then she pulled back her hand, even before Stephen had finished applying the ointment.

"He treated you badly, didn't he?"

Stephen asked, bluntly.

"We married before we fell in love with each other. Did you imagine we would live happily?" Cherry answered, opening up. She did not want to hide things anymore.

Stephen didn't say anything. He kept looking at Cherry, encouraging her to go on.

Cherry paused and looked away. Then she said, in a weak voice, "He doesn't love me. But why is he finding it so difficult to stay with me?"

Stephen understood what she meant. Jackson was most probably having an affair. But Stephen also knew that Jackson wasn't that kind of a person. Even though Jackson did not love Cherry, as a soldier, he would not choose to have an affair post marriage.

Suddenly, something occurred to Stephen. He was reminded of the one thing and the one person he had nearly forgotten about. Had she come back?

"Well, has she come back?" said Stephen, with hesitation.

"Do you know her?"

Cherry looked at Stephen curiously. After meeting him several times, she had realized that Stephen and Jackson might be sharing secrets. She hadn't paid more attention to that because she did not know Jackson at all. But Stephen might know who Sally He was, otherwise he would not have asked that question.

Stephen looked into Cherry's eyes and said, "She is Sally He."

Cherry didn't say anything.

Stephen realized that his guess was right. He looked away and said, "She was the one who Jackson would die for. Now she has finally come back."

Cherry still kept silent. She understood that Jackson loved Sally He the most.

Stephen looked at Cherry and asked, "Did Jackson dump you and go to Sally He?"

Stephen felt a complicated emotion when he asked the question. He felt sorry for Cherry, but at the same time, his heart was tugged by her. He wanted to protect her, although he had no idea whether it was because of hi

take Cherry..."

Jackson interrupted before Stephen finished his sentence.

"Stephen An, don't even think of touching anything in my life, or it won't end well for you. If you don't believe me, you can try again. Have you forgotten the lesson I gave you in the past?"

"You..." Stephen was too angry to say anything more.

"Leave now. Keep my words in mind, " said Jackson in a condescending tone.

Stephen kept silent and left. However, he did not give up. Since it was Cherry, he would pursue her no matter the risks, no matter if it was for revenge or for his own heart.

Watching Stephen go, Sally He whispered in Jackson's ear, "Cherry...is this Cherry your wife?"

"Right." Jackson did not avoid the question. Instead, he answered her calmly.

"Is she better than me?

Why would you marry her?"

Sally He's eyes were gradually filling with tears.

Jackson did not answer. He turned around and gently said, "Sally, you are getting better and can take care of yourself now. I have to go. You can live here. No one will bother you."

Hearing his words, Sally He clutched his hand and shook her head. "No. No. No. Don't go. You can't go. It was hard for me to be back with you again. I can't let you..."

Jackson wanted to get rid of Sally He, "Sally, knock it off."

Jackson finally shook himself free from Sally He and wanted to leave, but then he heard her angry words.

"If you leave, I will kill myself, " Sally He said, angrily. She would do whatever it took to make Jackson stay here.

Jackson stopped. He knew Sally He. If he left, it was very likely that she would do something terrible.

Seeing Jackson pause, Sally He walked towards him. She hugged him from the back and snuggled up to him. She then said, happily, "Stay with me, I'm so scared without you."

Jackson didn't say anything. He was rendered speechless.
