Jackson and Cherry strolled along the roadside hand in hand while the breeze gently brushed against their cheeks. Cherry watched the beautiful scenery around them, and for a moment felt her heart free of any hardships.

Jackson then suddenly put his arm around her waist and pulled her close to him. He bent over her ear, and whispered into it, "Baby, please forgive me."
