The next morning, Cherry bolted through her breakfast and rushed to work.

When she arrived at the office, she immediately started to work at her desk, like every other day.

Just a few minutes later, the manager came over and asked her to send over a document to JS Group's subsidiary.

She nodded and took the task dutifully.

After the manager left, she searched for the route on her computer and then set off for her destination.

Inside the office building of the JS group, when the elevator reached the first floor, she rushed out of it and in the process, knocked straight into someone who was coming her way.

She felt a sudden pain on her temple. It seemed that she had hit it against strong chest. The touch of the clothes felt like that of a military uniform.

"I'm sorry, " said Cherry as she looked up.

In the next second, both Cherry and Derek were shocked.

Derek could not believe his eyes. The woman standing in front of him was Cherry, Jackson's wife. What was she doing at JS? Why was she here?

"Ch-cherry?" Derek called out in utter astonishment.

Cherry also realised only then that it was Derek she had bumped into. She had thought he would have been a random stranger.

"Derek..." she called softly and then dropped her head.

"What are you doing here? More importantly, when did you come back?" asked Derek, who felt his head rushing with a surprise mingled with delight. He could not help thinking of Jackson who would finally cheer up to know about the reunion.

Cherry involuntarily touched her hair, not knowing what to say.

Finally she blurted out, "Derek, I'm in kind of a hurry and I really have to go now. Bye!"

Then she turned around and walked away before Derek could even come up with any response.

As Derek watched Cherry disappear, he felt exhilarated. What a wonderful thing it had been to see her back!

All of a sudden, Selina came up from nowhere, flung her arms around Derek's neck and said in a fiendish voice, "Brother, are you staring at hot girls?"

"Yes." Derek nodded with a smile. His eyes still lingered on where Cherry's figure was leaving.

"You are looking at hot girls? Really?" Selina had not thought that her chiding would actually be a true guess.

It suddenly occurred to Derek that Cherry had been holding some documents. Would she possibly work here?

He instantly jerked his head around to her sister and asked, "Sister, do you know Cherry?"

"Of course, " answered Selina with certainty. Cherry was an excellent employee who worked under her. How could she not know her?

"How do you know her?" asked Derek in surprise.

"She works for me, " answered Selina ignorantly, not making too much out of the situation.

Derek's eyes widened. Cherry was working at the JS Group? Did she know that Selina was his sister? Did she know that JS Group's owner was Jackson?

Seeing his brother's expressions drown in shock, Selina wondered, "Hey, are you alright? Why have you made such a face?"

Derek, in a

iling her because if she got mad, he would have to face the painful consequences.

"Then tell me why you left? Why did you ask about Cherry?" Selina poured out all of her questions in a go and then added, "I saw your car in the yard. Where have you been?"

"Sister, take it easy. Let me just catch my breath." Derek felt a little exhausted having to face his sister.

"Okay, Go ahead. Tell me, " commanded Selina like a proud woman.

Seeing Selina calm down, Derek slowly began, "For the first question, I left for Jackson's business. For the second, I also asked about Cherry for Jackson. For the last, I was at Jackson's."

"Jackson?" repeated Selina in surprise. Then she asked, "What's going on between Jackson and Cherry? One is a soldier, and the other just returned from abroad. Do they know each other?"

Derek glanced at Selina and decided to tell her the truth. He said, "They are more than acquaintances."

This took Selina by surprise. She suddenly realised that Jackson and Cherry must have known each other for a long time.

She grabbed Derek's arm, snuggled up against him, and pleaded with urgency, "Brother, tell me more. What's going on between them?"

Derek looked at Selina and asked seriously, "Do you remember Jackson's wife, who left him five years ago?"

"Of course. The entire house knows about it. I reckon that almost the entire city has heard of it. At that time, Andrew was furious, and Jackson had been looking for her all over the place." Selina recalled that it had become really big news, around the same time when she herself was preparing to travel back home from aboard. People had continued to gossip about it even days after Selina had come back, thinking that the woman must have been abused.

"His wife was Cherry, " said Derek, enunciating every word slowly, staring at Selina.

Selina was dumbstruck and slowly arose.

"What? What do you mean by that? Cherry is that woman? Jackson's wife?" Selina kept on shaking her head in disbelief.
