Chapter 123 An Awkward Scene

It was almost noon when Cherry returned to the company, but Selina still hadn't arrived the company yet. Cherry planned to meet with her, but she had asked her to stay in the company and wait for her. Selina told Cherry that she could handle everything okay, so Cherry waited for her until she came back in the afternoon.

Selina returned, but she didn't ask Cherry about what had happened earlier in the morning because she believed that those things were not really difficult for Cherry. Besides, she wasn't interested in Wilson's child.

For the whole afternoon, Cherry and Caroline were both busy being engaged in a meeting with Selina.

When Cherry returned to the CEO's area, she suddenly found that there were two people sitting in Selina's office. She took a serious glance at them, and recognized that the two were actually Jackson and Derek.

When he saw her, Derek nodded to Cherry greeting her, and Cherry replied the same.

Selina saw them, and as she smiled to them, she asked, "How did you two end up here?"

"We came here because we had nothing else to do, " said Derek, "But we couldn't find you here, and no one even served us with a glass of water while we waited for you."

Derek's words reminded Cherry that she should have served them tea, because she was, after all, Selina's secretary.

Cherry hastily went to grab two cups of tea from the tea room, and then placed them in front of Jackson and Derek.

Jackson glanced at Cherry without saying a word.

Shortly after she served the tea, Cherry left.

After he saw Cherry leaving, Derek looked at Jackson, and said, "Why didn't you talk to her?"

Jackson didn't reply, and instead took a sip of his cup of tea.

Smiling, Selina put down the documents that she was carrying in her hands and sat next to Jackson. She put her hand on Jackson's shoulder, and said, "Hey, buddy, she's your wife, not a stranger. Do you really have to pretend to be cool in front of me and my brother?"
