(Infant matrimony (2)

Meanwhile, Cherry and Jackson also got up from their seat to greet Amy. Cherry looked at his son's teacher and asked tenderly,"So Amy, how is Joe doing in class? Is he making progress?"

"Yes Cherry, Joe is doing pretty well. He is a diligent boy and a quick learner. I'm sure he'll do well. In fact, I have planned to arrange piano grading tests for him, once he joins primary school." Amy looked at the boy lovingly and thought how good he was at playing the piano. All he needed was keen attention and a lot of practice and he could do big things.

"That sounds awesome! Thank you so much Amy!" gushed Cherry. The news of her son doing so well had an immediate effect on her mood.

"Aww, Cherry, please don't mention it. And don't shower me with all these formalities. It feels like I am a stranger in this house," Amy said hastily. She and Cherry had been such close friends for so long, it was almost like she was family.

Derek echoed Amy's sentiment,"Absolutely Cherry. Joe is my sworn son and I love him like he was my own son. If something is good for his future, we will do everything we can to make it happen."

Cherry glanced at Jackson and looked back at the couple. "Alright, if there is no need for thanks, then I won't say it." "Cherry, it feels as if you still think of us as strangers and not as family. You need to grow up and stop acting like a child!" Derek said playfully.

"Derek, if you don't behave, I will give you a good spanking, too," said Cherry, playfully pretending to scold Derek as if he was a child.

"Hah, well okay," Derek turned to face the other side, offering his cheek to Cherry.

He knew that Cherry had been pampered so much by Jackson, there was no way he was going to win an argument with her. 'Better to avoid them if I cannot defeat them.' thought Derek.

"It seems like you have become much more stubborn Derek, after you received your marriage certificate with Amy," Cherry said mischievously.

"Well of course! She is now my wife and I love her so much. In fact, I was thinking if we should get our children married.

The child in your tummy and Amy's and mine could enter infant matrimony, don't you think?" said Derek proudly.

Cherry and Jackson were both taken aback, shocked. They looked at each other and then gave Amy and Derek a confused look,"So does that mean that you two... ...have had your own baby?"

Amy blushed, turning crimson with embarrassment and anger. "No!" she denied. "Derek, what are you talking about! What baby? Not at all."

Seeing Amy so angry, Derek immediately traced his steps back. He was afraid that Amy might be angry at him and so explained,"No, no that is not what I meant. I mean you have a baby now and then when we have a baby someday, we will get them two married," Derek clarified. These days he had loved spending time with Amy and had been sleeping at her apartment. If she was angry, he would have had to sleep in his own place. And he did not want to be away from her.

Cherry felt relieved and sighed,"Oh, that way. Yes well, we'll see about that. If my child is a girl and yours is a boy, we'll get them married then."

Cherry glanced at Jackson as she spoke and asked for his opinion,"What do you think, honey?"

Jackson smiled and said,"Well I think it would be fantastic. Our child's in-laws will be the bosses of the assets of JS Group. I think we must play it up to them right away. After all, they say one should always keep the rich waters in one's own field." He looked at Cherry and smiled.

"Oh, come on Jackson. The last thing you need right now is money. Stop eyeballing the assets of JS Group now," Derek whined playfully. For a man of Jackson's status, money was a heap of notes. He was already very rich and powerful and did not have to even think of the assets of JS Group.

"So what? Can't I do it?" Cherry said mischievously. She loved troubling Derek and bickering with him. "You approached us with the offer of infant matrimony with my baby, didn't you?

So now tell me, how many shares of JS Group will you give as betrothal presents?" Not to be outwitted by Cherry, Derek took an aim at JC Group's assets.
But just then, Joe exclaimed,"No! JC Group is mine! I won't give it." JC Group was his father's property and therefore would end up with him. He didn't want to share it with anyone.

Everyone laughed when they heard those words. Joe's innocence was adorable, because he didn't understand the playful banter and instead thought that someone was going to snatch JC group away from his Daddy.

Cherry put her hand gently on Joe's head and said,"Of course my son. JC Group is yours, okay? Nobody will take it from you."

"Haha, oh, Joe! Take it easy, alright? Nobody is going to dare to try and take JC Group away from you," said Amy.

"I am willing to give JC Group only to my brother or sister. But if I have to give it to my his or her spouse, then I'll have to think about it properly." Joe was now speaking directly to Derek. He had heard Derek say that he would not give up JS Group to his sibling, so then why should he hand over his Group to someone else.

"Joe, how about this? How about I give JS Group to your sister?" Derek said to Joe gently. He was impressed by the boy's smartness and his attitude of not giving up.

"Then I will give up JC Group to my brother-in-law!" Joe was smiling again at the thought of it.

"Alright then. Deal done,"

said Derek. Everybody laughed till their stomachs hurt and their eyes watered.
