Chapter 240 Bought Gifts With Son

Cherry got in the car but didn't start the engine right away, and instead reflected on what had happened to her in the parking lot. Although she had no idea of the driver's identity, she was sure that he had targeted at her life.

Cherry then suddenly thought of Joe, and was afraid that he might also get hurt.

She drove to Joe's school to check on him and to be sure that he was safe.

She stopped the car outside the school's gate. Although school wasn't over yet and all the students were in their classes, she still felt worried that her son might be in danger.

Cherry thought for a moment and then went to the porter to explain to him that she wanted to see her son. The porter was friendly, and he was more than glad to call Joe's class teacher.

A few minutes later, Joe's teacher came out with him.

Cherry felt relieved when she saw that her son was safe and sound.

Joe walked to his mom and held her hands. He said, "Mommy, why're you here?"

"I was worried about you, so I came here to check on you, " answered Cherry, smiling at her cute little boy. She relished to see her son happy and carefree.

Cherry then turned her gaze from Joe to his class teacher who was standing nearby, the same one that she had met last time.

The teacher gave Cherry a broad smile, and said, "Mrs. Cherry, are you here to take Joe home?"

Cherry put on a serious look on her face, and answered, "Yes, I have to take Joe away now. Can I ask for a leave for Joe?"

"That's alright, you can take your son now, everything is fine with me, " quickly said the teacher. She knew that Joe was Jackson's son, and that she had to treat him and Cherry respectfully. She knew that if she ever dared to provoke them she might get herself into greater trouble.

Cherry was surprised to see that the teacher permitted her son to leave immediately. She said, "Thank you, madam!"
