Chapter 111 Buying Evening Dress Together

Cherry then went upstairs, and when she opened the door of her bedroom, she saw Joe playing his video games on the bed.

As soon as Joe saw his mother, he stopped playing immediately, got off the bed, and rushed to her. He asked, "Mommy, why are you home so late? Uncle's been back already for ages."

Cherry squatted to hold Joe in her arms, and gently said, "Mommy was gone to visit an old friend today. That's why I'm so late."

"Oh, I see, " said Joe. "So Mommy talked with him about their friendship?"

Cherry then let go of her son, and while she patted his head, she said, "Joe, it's time for bed now. I'll go and take a shower."

"Okay. I'll wait for you. I want to sleep in your arms, " said Joe cutely.

Cherry smiled, and then went into the bathroom.

That night, Jackson couldn't sleep, and he stayed up late in the living room, with the lights turned off. Everything was quiet and still, and the moonlight shined on his face through the window.

It was not until two o'clock in the morning that Jackson went upstairs to his bedroom. When he walked in and saw the wedding photo on the wall, he looked at Cherry's happy smile and couldn't help but call out and sigh, "Honey."

Jackson moved slowly towards the bed and then laid on it. He huddled up in the blanket and eventually closed his eyes and fell asleep.

His phone rang and woke him in the morning.

He opened his eyes and looked at his phone. He saw that Sally was the caller, and wondered, why the heck would she call him at seven o'clock in the morning?

Jackson eventually answered it reluctantly.

"Hello, Sally, " he said blandly.

In a sweet voice, Sally affectedly asked, "Jackson, were you sleeping?"

"What's the matter?" asked Jackson.

"You know about the party tomorrow night, right?" asked Sally suddenly.

"The party tomorrow night?" The question caught Jackson off guard, and he tried to remember what she was talking about.

But Sally couldn't wait for him, and quickly jogged his memory, "It's the biggest business party in town. The Future Project is coming so there will be lots of attendees. It'll be a grand, wonderful party."

Jackson then realized what she was talking about. The business party was held on the same date each year, but he had been too concerned with the other things that had happened recently to remember about it.

Sally finally asked, "Jackson, are you even listening to
