(All together (2)

"My child, how was your honeymoon?" Elsa asked tenderly, holding Selina's hand.     

"It was wonderful,"  Selina replied.    

 "Come inside, have a good rest,"  Jacob suggested. 'They must be tired, in need of rest, ' he thought.    

 They all walked inside and sat down in the hall together. Elsa grasped Selina's hand. She adored her daughter-in-law very much.     

"Selina, has Wilson been taking good care of you these days?" Elsa asked.     "Mom, are you trying to say I'm a reckless husband?" Wilson asked teasingly.  

   "I was just afraid that you might have overlooked something and displeased Selina,"  Elsa responded with a smile.

   "Not possible, Wilson treated me very well. He is a very considerate man,"  Selina defended Wilson affectionately. 'I did really enjoy myself last month. Wilson treated me nicely and I felt so happy, ' she thought.   

  "Well, that's good to hear. If Wilson displeases you, just let me know and I will teach him a lesson, okay?" Jacob interjected.     

"So both my parents take my wife's side. None of you sides with me, Mom and Dad,"  Wilson complained.   

  "They are my parents now too. Of course they would be on my side,"  Selina replied teasinly, leaning her head on Elsa's shoulder contentedly.    

 "Now that you know your father and I will side with Selina, you must be nice to her, Wilson, or she might get angry with you and tell us,"  Elsa replied with a laugh. She looked at Jacob. "Jacob, do you know what you'll do if Selina gets angry and tells us?"  

"Of course I will give my son a lecture,"  Jacob replied resolutely.     

The harmonious and merry relationships between his parents and his wife satisfied him well. 'It seems that the cliched conflicts between daughter-in-law and mother-in-law will not happen in my house, ' he thought happily.    

 "Very well, I will listen to you and serve my queen well,"  Wilson conceded submissively.    

 "Attaboy!" Selina praised him, a smug smile on her face. 'I have already shown my happiness and dominance at Cherry's house, and now I've done it again here at home. I can even imagine my face overfull with happiness, and it might even be as infuriating as Joe's, ' she snickered inside.     

"Wilson, I hear you had lunch at Cherry's house. How has she been lately? She visited us a number of days ago. I haven't seen her since then,"  Elsa asked with concern.   

"No need to worry about Cherry, Mom. Jackson looks after her very well and she is in good condition now,"  Wilson reassured her with a smile. He didn't see any reason to worry about Cherry: she had Jackson's company and she would lead a much happier life than most in the world.     

"That's right, Mom, Jackson treats Cherry very well. Although, she did complain that Jackson didn't let her do anything for fear that she might get hurt. But Joe has been behaving very well and he hasn't displeased Jackson and Cherry,"  Selina agreed.     

Hearing this about Cherry, Jacob and Elsa were very relieved.   

  "Oh good. I feared that Cherry would be in poor health. When she carried Joe, she was acting tough and working. She suffered a lot during that pregnancy. 

Now that she is pregnant again, I only hope she is in good health now. 

Otherwise, I fear..." Elsa trailed off as painful memories resurfaced.   

Jacob sat beside Elsa to comfort her low spirits. "Don't worry, she has Jackson by her side this time,"  he told her, stroking her arm.     

"Mm-hmm,"  Elsa nodded, her spirits lifting.     

Wilson kept quiet, a glum look over his features.     

Noticing Wilson's expression, Selina grew suspicious. 'What is he thinking? Is he hiding something from me?' she wondered.    

 "Well, Wilson and Selina, you had best get some rest upstairs. You must be feeling tired after such a long flight. Take it easy over the next few days. You can go back to work later,"  Jacob suggested with fatherly concern painting his voice.   
"Of course,"  Wilson agreed. "We'll be heading upstairs then."    

"Have a good rest,"  Elsa said gently.    

 Upon entering their bedroom, Wilson closed the door gently behind them. However, instead of resting on the bed, he stood at the window, gazing sadly through it.     

Selina changed in the bathroom and came back to see Wilson standing before the window. 'He seems lost in his thoughts. What happened?' she asked herself.     

"Wilson?" she asked gently as she approached him.    

 "Hmm?" he answered, turning to see her.     

"You look blue. Is there something troubling you?" Selina asked.    

 Wilson took her hand, held her close to him and looked out the window.     

"When Mom spoke of Cherry just now, I was reminded of what happened five years ago when we lived abroad,"  Wilson replied. 'I shouldn't hide anything from this woman. She is my wife and the one whom I will live with for the rest of my life. I shouldn't keep secrets from her, ' he said to himself.   

Selina frowned. "Do you mean when Cherry carried Joe?" she asked earnestly. 'That's the only time that makes sense, ' she thought.    

 "Yes,"  Wilson confirmed. "Cherry was staying with us at the time and Jackson wasn't with her. Dad and I had to leave regularly to work at the company and mom sometimes had to go out too. So Cherry didn't receive as good care as she should have. She suffered a lot during that time..." Wilson trailed off, sadness overwhelming him.     

Selina listened to Wilson silently.    

 "Do you know why Cherry loves Joe so much?" Wilson asked suddenly.   

"Joe is her son. Of course she loves him,"  Selina answered.   

  "Joe is a... gift to her. He is her everything,"  Wilson explained, shaking his head.     

Selina stared at the profile of his face. 'I want to remember his face, ' she told herself.     

"In the emergency room, Cherry had a very painful time trying to give birth to Joe. She suffered greatly before Joe was finally born. After labor, she was so weak that she fell into a coma. She didn't wake up until a couple days later,"  Wilson elaborated. "That's why my mother worries so much about Cherry's health."  

  The reasons behind the worry on Jacob and Elsa's faces finally revealed. Selina nodded. 'Cherry could be in a very weak condition. That's why they are so worried about her, ' she realised.    

 "Jackson should take some responsibility for that. He should have kept Cherry company back then,"  Selina replied, wrapping her hands around Wilson's waist.   

Wilson nodded. "We can't change the past, and now Jackson treats Cherry very well,"  he added. 'I know Jackson's love for Cherry. Even though he didn't take care of her back then, I don't blame him. He's making amends for his past mistakes now, ' he thought.     

"And of course, Joe is a smart and obedient little boy. He must make Cherry very happy,"  Selina continued. Joe was a blessing for Cherry in Selina's eyes.    

 "As her childhood family, I will be content as long as she lives happily. And in this way, dad and mom will be happy too,"  Wilson declared.     

Selina nodded, smiling. "Don't forget, dear, they are my family too. Jackson is like an elder brother to me,"  she added resolutely.   

Looking down at his wife, he grunted an affirmative.

They locked eyes affectionately.
