(Return from their honeymoon (2)

"Okay, great. I'm gonna go talk to Lilly now. Be safe, okay?" Cherry hung up the phone after they said their goodbyes.     She shouted Lily's name as she made her way to the kitchen.     

Lily stepped out of the kitchen at the sound of her name. "Mrs. Cherry, what is it? Do you need anything?"    

"Wilson and Selina are back from their honeymoon. Derek and Amy have already picked them up from the airport.

 They are on their way and will have lunch here. Do you have food you can prepare? I hope you can prepare a wonderful lunch for them. And you'd better to do it as quickly as possible because they have been on the road already,"  Cherry said to Lily.   

"Oh, that's wonderful! And I just shopped for groceries this morning. I'm going to go and prepare lunch now,"  Lily left before Cherry could reply. Lily needed to move fast if she wanted to finish cooking by the time they arrived.   

  "Thank you,"  Cherry said to Lily's back.     She held on to the handrail as she went up step by step to the second floor.    

 Cherry stood outside Joe's bedroom door, about to knock when she stopped to eavesdrop on Jackson and Joe's conversation. She wanted to know if Jackson said any bad things about her to their son.     

"Joe, this is wrong. Your answer here should be 12,"  Jackson dictated to Joe.     
"No, Daddy, the answer is obviously 24. You calculated it wrong,"  Joe insisted.     "You can be so foolish, Joe,"  Jackson claimed.  

"That's you, Daddy. You are just as foolish as Cherry,"  Joe argued.     

"Cherry is more clever than you. You're just a foolish boy,"  Jackson responded.

     "You and Cherry are both foolish! I'm the most clever person here!" Joe laughed at Jackson.     

Cherry was sure her son beamed with pride at his statement.    

 Cherry stood and sulked at the door, unable to enter, when the door opened.  

   Jackson and Joe jumped at the sight of Cherry and wondered whether she heard their conversation. The furious look on Cherry's face told them that she had heard what they said. Joe was frightened at the sight of his angry Mommy.    

 "Mommy, I'm so sorry, please forgive me!" Joe apologized as he joined his hands together to beg for mercy.    

 Jackson couldn't speak. He didn't know what he was going to do. Every time Joe made mistakes, he would act cute to let Cherry forgive him. But as a mature man, how could Jackson do the same thing with his son in front of Cherry?   

"Tell me, Joe, what kind of mistake have you made?" Cherry interrogated.    

 "I shouldn't have called your names,"  Joe admitted. He pointed to Jackson beside them. "Daddy made a mistake, too. He also called you names."   

 Cherry turned to Jackson and waited for an explanation.     

Jackson didn't even know how to start. He just kept his eyes on Cherry innocently.     

She fixed her glare at Jackson and declared with gritted teeth,"I will deal with this problem with you tonight, Jackson."    

Joe teased Jackson with a laugh but clamped his hand against his mouth when Cherry fixed her glare at him.   

"Did you finish your homework, Joe?" Cherry inquired.     

Joe thought about saying yes but he knew that he'd better to be honest. He shook his head and said,"No, there are still a few problems left but I can finish them later."    

"Finish them now. Your Uncle Wilson and Auntie Selina have returned and are on their way here now. Your Uncle Wilson wants to see you but he can only see you if you finish your homework. Do you understand?" Cherry tried to keep her tone neutral.     

"Okay, Mommy,"  Joe replied.     

Joe returned to his homework without a word. Cherry glared at Jackson again before she left the room.     

Jackson immediately ran after Cherry as he knew Cherry had got mad at him.   

 "Cherry, baby, are they really back?" Jackson caught up with Cherry and draped his arm over her shoulders.   

Cherry removed his arm and hand from her body. "Don't touch me. You and Joe bully me together,"  Cherry whined. She simply couldn't do anything with him.   

  Jackson understood Cherry's resistance but did not let it stop him from making sure Cherry was okay. He helped her sit comfortably on the bed.    

 "Baby, I swear. I don't teach Joe to bully you nor bully you with Joe,"  Jackson explained,"I'm so sorry I hurt you." Jackson crouched before Cherry and pleaded before her.     

Cherry sighed,"Darling." Jackson looked up and Cherry pulled him to her side.   

  "Yes, Cherry?" Jackson replied. He wanted to make it up to Cherry and was ready to do what he needed to do.     

"We have to pay attention to Joe's schooling now more than ever. When the baby is born, I won't have as much time to teach Joe. We need to work together. 

He's still starting in school and he still has much to learn. Do you understand?" Cherry reminded Jackson. Cherry loved her son so much and she could not lead him astray, no matter what.   

Jackson nodded. He agreed with Cherry because he felt the same way. "Of course. Honey, we all know what kind of boy our son is. He may sometimes be naughty but he is a very smart and wise kid and I will not let his education suffer. I will take care of it. I don't want you to worry."    

Jackson stood up and took his seat beside Cherry. Then he took Cherry in his arms and kissed the top of her head.  

   Snuggled tightly in Jackson's arms, Cherry whispered to Jackson,"Darling, I'm so excited for our little baby to arrive. There are just two months left."    

"I'm so excited, too, baby,"  Jackson agreed.    

 Cherry looked up at Jackson,"It's been a while since I spoke to Selina. They should be here soon."  

"Really? Then we can have lunch with them here. I'm so happy that we can get together and have fun today,"  Jackson said.     

Cherry nodded. "Lily is already preparing food for them. And Derek and Amy picked them up at the airport so they'll be joining us for lunch, too."    

"Really? Derek didn't tell me they were going to pick them up at the airport,"  Jackson replied. Derek usually told him everything but he didn't know about this. He should ask Derek about it later.    

 "Maybe they were just worried about me. It's going to be so much fun when Selina gets here. She sounded so happy on the phone. It must have been a really great honeymoon,"  Cherry informed Jackson.     

"Yes, that's good to know,"  Jackson responded. "So I guess it's time for Derek and Amy to get married now? Derek's villa has been fixed for months and just waiting for them to move in."  

"We'll ask them later, darling," Cherry replied.
