Episode 62

(Why should we stay here(2)

Then she held her son's hand and left Mond standing on the sidewalk.

Mond stood still. Cherry had left him behind, and he couldn't think of a thing to stop her. He had neither soothed her, nor forced her to stay, for he had realized that there was nothing for him; there were no words could make her notice him. She was Jackson's woman, who had given birth to Jackson's son. About whom Mond know almost nothing, not even aware of her strength and weaknesses. He had no choice, none but to let her go away. Mond watched Cherry and her son walk away from him. He remained fixed where she left him, looking, watching until the mother and son's figures disappeared.

When Cherry and Joe got back home, they saw Andrew sitting on the sofa in the living room.

Andrew saw them coming back and happily said, "There you are."

Then he looked at Joe and fondly said, "Joe, come here. Come to your Great-Grandpa."

Andrew reached out his hand to Joe. He was going to give his Great-Grandson a warm and tight hug. He loved and adored Joe so much. He had always looked forward to spending more time with Joe.

Joe suddenly said, "No. I don't want to live here! I don't want to live here anymore!"

Then he released his mother's hand and rushed upstairs to his room crying. Cherry tried to stop Joe by calling out his name and saying, "Joe, how could you be so impolite to your Great-Grandpa?"

Joe had already taken several steps up the stairs, but he suddenly stopped when he heard what her mother said.

He turned around, standing at the steps of the stairs and looked at his Great-Grandpa. His eyes were full of tears as he said, "I hate Daddy. I hate Daddy. Why does he have to find other women? He has my mommy. But why does he have to see other women? Are all people in Chu Family like this?"

Joe's last question was so clear and loud that it reached Andrew's ears.

Then Joe turned around and continued to run upstairs, ignoring his mother's call.

Down on the ground floor, Cherry got angry and said, "Joe, what are you talking about?" She thought to herself, 'How could Joe say that? Jackson was the one at fault but Andrew was right there sitting in the living room. How could he say such a thing in front of Andrew? His words were an insult to him as well.' Exhausted by the day's event, Cherry let out a heavy breath.

Andrew's happy expression immediately changed. He slowly stood up, and his cane in his hand was shaking. He looked at the place where Joe had stood. He repeated his great-grandson's words, 'What did Joe mean by that? Are all people in Chu Family like this? What does that mean? Why is Joe asking me about this? What did he mean? What happened while he and Cherry were out?

Once upon a time, my son made severe mistakes and I've tried my best to make up for it. I tried to correct all his wrongdoings. I paid the price for him. But now what did my grandson do? Why is my great-grandson asking me this question?'

Tears threatened to spill from the old man's eyes as he asked himself, 'What wrong have I not done enough? Why did such things keep happening to the Chu Family?'

Cherry was helpless for what her son had said. She turned her head to look at Andrew. When she saw Andrew's pained face, Cherry's eyes grew wide with worry. She approached Andrew and laid a hand on his shoulder. Cherry softly asked, "Grandpa, are you all right?"

As soon as she finished her question, Andrew slowly closed his eyes and fell back. Andrew lost consciousness.

Cherry quickly supported Andrews body to avoid him from hitting the floor. Cherry was in a panic and shouted, "Grandpa, Grandpa!"

Seeing that Andrew was no longer responsive, Cherry immediately shouted for help. She was so worried and she shouted for help, "Someone help! Bill! Lily! Help! Help! Anyone, please!"

When Lily and Bill went to the living room, they saw Andrew's pale and unconscious body and they were freaking out. Lily and Bill immediately ran towards Cherry to help her carry Andrew on the sofa.

Lily was so worried and scared for Andrew. She had difficulty forming her question to Cherry. She asked, "Mrs. Cherry...What...What happened?"

Cherry looked at Bill and ordered in a stern voice., "Bill, help me to get Grandpa to the hospital! Now!"

Hearing her demand, Bill quickly said, "Oh...Okay!"

Bill carried Andrew to the car. Cherry tried to stay calm and gave instructions to Lily. She firmly held Lily's arm and said, "Lily, you stay here at home to take care of Joe. Don't let him go out of the house. Do you understand?" Cherry wanted to confirm if Lily was emotionally and mentally stable to take temporary responsibility for the house and her son.
"Oh, okay, okay," said Lily as she tried to control her shaking voice and steady herself. It was obvious that she was terrified by what has just happened. Cherry immediately followed Bill to the car.

Cherry dialled Jackson's number while she was driving. Unfortunately, Jackson's phone could not be reached. Cherry tried several times and hoped that she might get lucky. However, this time luck was not on her side. Cherry was so scared and worried for Andrew. and she even wanted to cry because there was no way for her to help him.

Bill looked at Andrew who was lying unconscious on the back seat and asked, "Mrs. Cherry, still can't get through to Mr. Jackson?"

Cherry ignored his question and said, "I've called the hospital and they are ready for us. They will meet us at the gate."

Bill knew that Cherry was avoiding his question on purpose, so he didn't persist with his question.

When Jackson returned home, it was already six o'clock in the evening. He saw that there was nobody in the living room.

And he then checked the kitchen and dining room and found they were also empty. Lily who was usually busy in the kitchen was nowhere to be found.

Bill who usually greeted him at the front door was also missing. Jackson was confused and wondered where everybody was. Did Cherry and Joe still not return home?

Jackson thought for a while and started to go upstairs to check on his wife and son.

He was starting to be mad and thought, 'If Cherry and Joe were not back, they must be with Mond. How dare Cherry be with Mond and with my son? It seems that she has been too comfortable these days and forgotten what she is.'

Angrily, he ran to the second floor. Then he saw that his son's door had been left open and he heard Lily's voice. She was comforting Joe.

Jackson slowly walked to his son's room.

Lily stood next to Joe and politely said, "Mr. Joe, you should stay and wait. Mrs. Cherry has said that you shouldn't go out."

Joe firmly said, "No. I want to find my Mommy and leave with her. Since my Daddy doesn't want my Mommy anymore, why should we still stay here?"
