Episode 58

(The valuable pendant (2)

Cherry had leisure time and was carefree for the whole day. She sat in her office surfing the Internet or occasionally drinking tea, and just had to sign her name on some documents, because most of her work had been assigned to her staff.     

In the afternoon, when Cherry was sitting in the office waiting to be off-duty, the phone suddenly rang.     

Cherry took out her phone and saw it was Jackson.   

She answered, "Hello?"    

Jackson's gentle voice sounded from the other end of the line. He said, "Honey, are you busy now?"

  "No, I had nothing to do the whole day," said Cherry. She asked, "What's up? Why did you call me?"    

"I miss you, and I want to call you," replied Jackson vaguely.     

Cherry suddenly became shy and embarrassed, and said, "Don't flirt with me! Do you really have nothing to say to me other than that?"    

After he heard Cherry's words, Jackson seriously said, "Honey, something happened in the army and I have to deal with it, so I may not come back tonight. That means that you have to pick up Joe from school after work."  

"Oh, okay," said Cherry calmly.     

Jackson paused for a moment, and then said, "Don't kick off the quilt tonight, without me tucking you back in, you might catch a cold."    

Cherry was suddenly stunned by his words, and wondered, 'Is he worrying about me?'    

"Okay, I'll sleep with Joe tonight," quickly replied Cherry.     

Jackson then said, "And please tell Grandpa the reason of my absence when you get back home; I won't call home."  

"Okay," replied Cherry.     

After she hung up the phone, Cherry was dazed thinking about her marriage with Jackson. At beginning there had been no relationship whatsoever between them, but she had suddenly fallen in love with him. She had left him because of Sally, but she had also come back to him, because of her strong love to him, and after so much suffering, Jackson had indeed become the love of her life in her heart, and she had gotten used to being around him. She was moved when she heard Jackson's caring words, and she felt very happy to stay with him.   

After work, Cherry went to Joe's school to pick him up.     

When he saw his Mommy's car at the school gate, Joe was confused. 

He walked to her, and asked, "Mommy, didn't you say that Daddy was coming to pick me up after school? Where is Daddy?"    

Cherry held her son's hand and tenderly said to him, "Daddy is busy in the army now, so Mommy came to pick you up instead. Let's go home now."    

Joe got in his mother's car, and replied, "Okay."    

On their way home, Cherry asked her son while driving, "How was school today?"  

"The same as usual," replied Joe without any sort of emotion in his words.     

"How are you getting along with your classmates?" asked Cherry.     

"Not bad. Boys always make fun of each other, and occasionally play joke on girls, but the girls in my class really love to compare their beauty, they always let me choose the most beautiful girl as soon as I get inside the classroom. Oh, it's so boring!" complained Joe to his Mommy with an impatient expression on his face.     

"And are the girls in your class beautiful?" suddenly asked Cherry.     
"Beautiful?" Joe thought for a moment, and said, "I think they might, but they all have princess syndrome and are all delicate as flowers."

Cherry smiled and didn't say anything more.     

Joe then suddenly looked at his Mommy, and earnestly said, "Actually, Mommy is the most beautiful woman in my mind, and nobody else can compare to you, so I don't know whether they are beautiful or not."    

Cherry felt very warm in her heart when she heard what her son said. She was so fortunate to have such a sweet boy, her life's treasure.     

Seeing that his Mommy was smiling, Joe happily asked, "Mommy, when will we go to visit Grandma and Grandpa, as well as Uncle Wilson? I miss them so much!"  

After she heard her son's words, Cherry suddenly started to miss them a lot too. She said, "Well, I'll talk with your Daddy when he comes back from the army, and we'll fix a day to visit your Uncle's family, okay?"    

"Okay, okay, but we'd better visit them this weekend; I can't wait any longer!" said Joe while he cheerfully clapped his hands.     

As soon as he got out of the car after they returned to the residential compound, Joe heard several of his friends calling him. He then gave his schoolbag to his mother, and said, "Mommy, can you help me take my schoolbag into the house? I want to spend some time with my little friends."  

"You..." but before Cherry had a chance to finish her words, she saw her son already running to the children. She shouted at her son, "Be careful, and come back home early!"    

"Got it!" replied Joe.     

Cherry then helplessly shook her head and walked into the house with her own bag and her son's schoolbag.     

As soon as Cherry entered the living room, she saw Andrew coming down the stairs, with the butler following from behind.   

Cherry smiled and greeted him, "Grandpa, I'm back home!"    

"Well, already off-duty?" replied Andrew while smiling back at her.     
"Yes!" replied Cherry, nodding.    

 "Where's Joe? He should have also arrived back home from school, right?" suddenly asked Andrew.     

"He's having fun outside in the yard with other children. His friends called him as soon as he got out of the car," answered Cherry.     

Andrew then laughed, and said, "The children in the compound always have fun together in the yard at this time; don't worry, just leave Joe with them."  

"Okay, " replied Cherry. Seeing Andrew sat on the sofa, she came closer to him and stood aside. She then said, "Grandpa, Jackson called me earlier in the afternoon and said that he was caught in some army affairs, so he won't be coming back home tonight."
