Chapter 238 Signing A Contract(Part One)

In the afternoon, after she finished work, Cherry went to the school to pick up her son. When she saw Joe walking out of the school gates, she quickly got out of the car to greet her son.

Joe was very happy to see his mother, and he rushed towards Cherry the moment that he saw her. "Mommy, Mommy, I'm so happy that you have time to pick me up!" said Joe, while holding his mother's hand.

"I got off work early today, so I came to pick you up, " said Cherry, with a big smile on her face. Joe was her sunshine, who always warmed her heart no matter what.

"That's nice! Mommy, let's go home now!" said Joe cheerfully.

"Okay, hop in the car and let's go home!"

When Cherry arrived home, Lily had just prepared their dinner. When she saw that Cherry and Joe arrived, she politely said, "Madam, young master, dinner is ready! Shall I put the dishes on the table now?"

"Is my Daddy home?" asked Joe, while he put down his schoolbag.

Cherry looked at her son, and said to him in a tender voice, "Your Daddy has something important to do in the barracks, so he may not have time to come home this evening. We don't need to wait for him, let's eat."

After she said that, Cherry turned to Lily who was standing beside her, and said, "Yes, serve the food now."


After dinner, Joe went to his room to do his homework and Cherry sat in the living room and watched TV alone.

Suddenly, the phone rang. She knew that the call was from Jackson, and Cherry answered it immediately.
