Jackson drove back to the Murong family's house. He called and learned that Sherri was discharged from the hospital today, and it was Allen who picked her up. With anger in his heart, he planned to settle accounts with Sherri when she came back. But now he realized that things were not that simple. She would faint at any time. If he wanted to torture her, he had to consider her body, so as not to waste the money of the Murong family.

The butler in the living room was talking on the phone. Seeing Jackson come in, he hung up the phone and walked over. "Mr. Jackson, you are back."

"Who's on the phone?" Jackson asked casually.

"It's the master. Master said he would come back next month." The butler said respectfully, putting his hands on his stomach, as if he was honest.

Jackson stared at the butler meaningfully, crossed his legs and turned on the TV impatiently. "Did Sherri call you when she was discharged from the hospital today?"

The butler was stunned. He glanced at Jackson indifferently and pretended to be surprised. "Mr. Jackson, I didn't know she was discharged from the hospital today, and she didn't call me either. Mr. Jackson, do you mean that I should call Sherri and ask when she will come back? "

"Well, it's up to you. I'm tired. I will go upstairs."

Without waiting for the butler to say anything, Jackson went upstairs directly. He wandered upstairs for a while and then went to the attic. He still remembered that when the Murong family adopted Sherri at the beginning, she often hid in the attic alone and didn't even dare to come downstairs to eat. His father also said that she would be fine in a few days. Now that he thought back, Sherri at that time was really different from her now. Even her personality had changed.

With his hands on his hips, he was immersed in the memories of the past. In his eyes, everything was very simple, except that the person whose heart had changed. Jackson admitted that he had changed. He had changed from beginning to end to inherit the family business. If a person wanted to become strong, he had to give up something that was not strong, including sympathy and pity for others. In the business world, these things were least needed. He knew what he wanted and what he should do.

He sighed slightly and gradually withdrew from the past memories. He indifferently looked around the relatively clean attic, with deep doubts in his eyes. He didn't know how Bella would feel after Sherri came back. His only sister was wronged. As a brother, he had to take it out on her. And the one who hurt his sister was Sherri. So he didn't want to be softhearted, and he wouldn't let Sherri go so easily.

Staring at the lemon juice in the quilt, Sherri opened her big eyes in a daze and forced herself to follow Allen's advice. She didn't go back to the Murong family's house directly after leaving the hospital, but followed him to his rented apartment. She took a rest and found a restaurant nearby for dinner. After taking a nap, she went out for a walk. As time passed and it was getting dark, she was a little anxious. She didn't know if Jackson would call her if she didn't go back.

"Sherri, do you think I'm right?"

"What? What did you just say? "

Seeing that she was absent-minded, Allen was not unhappy. Instead, he held her hand on the table and patiently repeated what he had just said, "you are clear now that I hope you can move out from the Murong family's house and live with me."

"Live with you?" Sherri stared at him in astonishment, not knowing what to say.

"Don't worry. I won't force you to do anything you don't want to do. The apartment I rent has a small study. It's not a big apartment and I can change it into a bedroom. You can live next to me then, so that we can take care of you." Allen continued to say his plan. He was in a good mood when he thought of living with Sherri in the future.

Sherri was very nervous. She knew that she couldn't pretend to be fine in front of Allen. She knew that it was impossible to forget what had happened between her and Jackson. At this moment, she was extremely conflicted and couldn't even calm down. Her palms were sweating. She twisted her hands and pulled them out of Allen's hands.

Allen thought she was shy, so he didn't ask her directly about the result of her consideration, but waited for her answer with a smile. Although he was not confident, he still waited with a glimmer of expectation. Thinking that Sherri might not need to see Jackson in the future, he looked forward to it even more.

After struggling for a long time, Sherri still felt that she couldn't promise him. As his girlfriend, as the person he had always believed. Sherri's eyes became clear. She finally had the courage to look up at him and try to speak in a peaceful tone, "I'm sorry, Allen. I can't move to live with you for the time being."

"Why not? It's because you are shy. Don't worry. I won't do anything to you." Hearing her refusal, Allen became anxious. He knew that Sherri was a conservative girl, but he didn't expect her to refuse without hesitation, which made him a little worried.

Sherri's eyes lingered on Allen's

face helplessly. She couldn't tell him the panic in her heart directly. She couldn't tell him the secret in her heart. Although the atmosphere was good when they talked face to face, she felt that she didn't deserve him anymore. She still didn't want to leave him. She wanted see him, even if he didn't talk to her. This simple request made her worry that it might become a luxury in the future.

"I know. I know your character, but... But I really can't move to live with you. I can't do it for the time being. Please give me some time. Don't push me. "

"I'm not forcing you. I..."

Allen still wanted to explain, but he couldn't say anything when he saw that Sherri was about to cry. For him, it was good for the two of them to live together and see each other every day, and he would be happier than just seeing her two or three times a week. He didn't want to make things difficult for her or see her unhappy, so he didn't continue to persuade her and changed her attitude.

"Well, I'll give you some time. You can move here whenever you want. I'll wait for you no matter how long it will take."

Sherri looked at Allen gratefully and felt better. She nodded stubbornly, "thank you, Allen. Thank you for understanding my strange temper."

"You don't have a stranger temper. In my eyes, you are the sweetest girl in the world." Allen blurted out, his mouth as sweet as honey.

"No, I'm just an ordinary girl. You think too highly of me. I don't deserve it." Thinking of Jackson, Sherri's mind went blank. Up to now, she still didn't want to have a direct conflict with Jackson. After all, he was the master of the Murong family now, and he could do whatever he wanted.

Seeing that she looked uncertain and sad, Allen comforted her kindly, "Sherri, if the Murong family bullies you in the future, please tell me. Whether it's Jackson or his sister, just tell me."

Sherri was very grateful to Allen. She knew that he said it sincerely and he could do it. Looking at his sincere eyes, she felt herself more and more insignificant. She stared at his eyes powerlessly, and guilty spread from the bottom of her heart. Till now, she still felt that she was sorry for Allen.

"I want to go back. Can you drive me home, Allen?"

Allen nodded. The two of them were both silent. She hoped that the taxi could be slower, so as to maintain the space and atmosphere between them. Sherri knew that the road would come to an end. Seeing that it was getting closer and closer to the Murong family's house, she felt uneasy and didn't know what was waiting for her.

After getting out of the car, Allen was still worried about Sherri. After confirming that she was really willing to go back to the Murong family's house, he repeated what he had said before getting in the car, hoping that she would call him if she feel wronged. Sherri didn't want him to worry about her, so she kept nodding and watched him turn around and leave, looking at him with reluctance.

Originally, Jackson was waiting for dinner on the balcony of the second floor with a cup of coffee in his hand. The butler had always prepared the dinner before called him up. Today's situation was special, so he specially delayed the dinner time by twenty minutes. He wanted to see if Sherri would come back tonight. To his disappointment, he happened to see Sherri and Allen get off the taxi together. The two of them stood at the gate of the Murong family's house and talked intimately for a while.

Looking at them of being so intimate, Jackson's heart became colder and colder. The two of them had been together for a day, but they were still reluctant to leave each other, as if they would never see each other in the future, which made him somewhat unhappy. It was expected that Sherri would come back. He knew that Sherri didn't have the guts to not come back, and he would bring her back in person if she didn't come back.

"Are you willing to come back now?"

Sherri looked at Jackson in surprise. It was easy to find him, so she took back her steps. Her whole body was shrouded under the man's cold eyes, unable to move for a long time. She wanted to speak, but was hit by the man's next words.

"Allen still treats you as a treasure. If he knows that you are different now, do you think he will still care about you so much?"

"You can't do that, Jackson. What the hell do you want to do?" Sherri's face turned pale instantly. She couldn't be indifferent, but stared at him with a dull expression.

On the balcony, Jackson could not see the expression on Sherri's face clearly, but he could tell from her tone that she was very anxious and nervous now. As a conservative woman, this was what irritated her most. The more she didn't want to mention it, the more Jackson reminded her again and again. It was better to break all this and make her suffer than to see her being with Allen sweetly.

Sherri walked into the living room of the Murong family absentmindedly. The magnificent Murong family, if it was the first time for people to come here, they would definitely sigh that this was not an ordinary rich man. Even the carpet under their feet was from the imported famous brands.
