 Season 7

Episode 9

(Her secret (1)

Cherry ended the call with Lawrence and put the phone aside.    

 "What happened to Lawrence?" asked Jackson as he reached out encircling his arms around Cherry and drawing her closer to him.    

 Relaxing into his comforting arms, Cherry said,"I didn't ask him specifics, but, it might have something to do with a classmate."    

Concerned, Jackson wanted to know,"Is someone bullying him?"   

 Cherry shook her head and replied,"I don't think so. I can't imagine anyone bullying him, I think he is just upset about something."    

Jackson suddenly declared,"Anyone who dares to harass my son, is dead!"  

Cherry looked up at Jackson and said,"Impulse, is a devil's tool, you know that, right?"   

 Seeing Cherry's eyes ablaze with anger, Jackson hastily said,"All right, all right. Don't be mad at me, please. I wasn't gonna do anything, I was just saying it."  

  Jackson gazed at Cherry fondly, and leaned in to kiss her.    

 Cherry put her hand up, stopping him and said,"Honey, although we have wealth and power, I don't want Joe to grow into a heartless man. My hope is that he is grateful for what he has, but, keeps the fire. I never want him to be ruthless or cold." It was her dream for her children. 

She knew better than anyone how ferocious the fight in a noble family was. Therefore, she didn't want to see her children became those sort of people.  

   Jackson nodded his head agreeing,"Yes, I understand." He totally understood his wife. Actually, how could he possibly not know her worries?   

Cherry said,"Oh, thank you, Darling, for thinking like that,"  thrilled that Jackson could understand her thoughts. 

Sometimes, he rushed into making business decisions, and some choices were cold. But, she knew that he was not ruthless, there were times he was warm, and he knew how to deal with things in a friendly way.     

Jackson touched her cheek fondly saying,"You little fool, I'm your husband. Who else could understand you better? Don't overthink things, I know what your wishes for our children are, and I know how to handle it."   

 Cherry nodded her head,"Okay." Over the years, Jackson was always with her, and came to know her. She saw herself as the happiest woman in the world.    

 "We need to get to sleep early, tonight. I want to take you to see the ocean, tomorrow,"  as Jackson told her his plans, he pulled Cherry to him with one hand and pulled the quilt up over them with his other.     

"Okay. Good night,"  Cherry agreed, snuggling into his side, closing her eyes as she gradually fell asleep.   

Jackson stared at the sleeping Cherry and felt content. Her face, which had been young and smooth, had fine lines under her eyes. Time had flown by, and her face was showing the effects. 

She had always stood by him, and with her, he felt he had the whole world. Now their kids were growing up, and he thought the family was the most important thing to him. No matter how busy he was at work, he always took time to keep a happy family. He had a sweet, smiling wife, good son and mischievous daughter. With them, he knew he could face and overcome anything. Maybe due to this woman, his life was so comfortable and happy.    

 Jackson knew Cherry was the best thing that had ever happened to him.     

In the morning, Lawrence Chu's clock went off, waking him from sound sleep. He rubbed his eyes as he got out of bed, and went next door to wake his sister, Violet up.    

 While Violet dressed slowly, she unhappily complained,"Lawrence Chu, you're so annoying. Why do you insist on waking me up every morning?"  

As Lawrence folded her quilt, he said,"Look, I don't need to be bothered with this. If Mom were here, she would wake you, but, she isn't, so, I'm doing this for Mom."    

"Lawrence, when you were little, did you sleep in late?" asked Violet. She was curious whether or not her brother overslept.     

"I'm not like you. I slept late when I was in preschool, but, I've gotten up on time since I started primary school. Mom praises me for my timeliness,"  Lawrence told her seriously. When he started elementary school, he changed his habit of sleeping late.     

"Liar! I don't believe you!" Violet snapped waspishly as she finished dressing and ran off to the bathroom to wash up.    

 Not able to think of an argument left Lawrence feeling helpless, but, at the same time, Lawrence admired Violet's gift for gab.   

Sitting and eating breakfast in the dining room, Violet noticed the time and said,"Oh, I need to hurry up. Aunt Amy will be here any minute, and it'll be embarrassing if I am not ready to go."   

 Lawrence happily taunted,"Ha-ha! Just wait until Aunt Amy sees you. You won't get up on time, and take your time getting dressed and washing up, which makes you late and then you have to rush! Do you realize the importance of punctuality yet?" 'Now this little girl will realize how much time she wastes, ' Lawrence thought smugly.    

 "Lawrence, just shut up! Don't you dare talk to me like that! I'm the queen in our family. You have no right to educate me,"  Violet shot back, wiping her face with the napkin before quickly grabbing her school bag and stating haughtily,"I'll go wait for Aunt Amy at the gate, now."   

 Lawrence smiled watching his sister, Violet, making a hasty exit. He thought she was such a naughty young lady.   

When Lawrence was done with his breakfast, Bill drove him to school.    

 On their way to school, Bill wasn't sure if he was supposed to stop to pick the girl up in the alley. He glanced in the rear view at Lawrence, who was staring silently out the window.     

"Umm, Lawrence, are we..." Before he finished the question, Lawrence interrupted,"Go straight to school,"  Lawrence directed. He was still having mixed feelings about what his classmates told him yesterday, so, he decided against picking Rebecca up for school until he figured out the truth.   

"Okay," Bill didn't add anymore after catching a glimpse of Lawrence's expression.
