Chapter 256 Late Night Hallway (Part Three)

Jackson then tightly held her, and fondly whispered in her ear, "Baby, please understand Grandpa. He's old now, and I've never been at his side for so many years, but now that we're here with him, and because he requested me to do this, I didn't want to turn him down. I didn't want to let him worry about anything."

Cherry then said, "So you chose me instead to worry?" Cherry stared blankly in front of her, and continued to say, "Did you forget what she said to me and our son?"

Cherry became mad when she remembered the past, because Lucia had always insulted her, ever since the day they had first met. Now Lucia had grown even more bolder, and had had the nerve to insult Joe when he was right in front of her. How could Cherry forgive anyone who hurt her son like that?

Jackson moved closer to her ear, and said, "She won't behave like that again, trust me."

Cherry didn't hear him; instead, she had deepened in her thoughts, and said, "Jackson, you know what? Before we got back together, I always worried that Joe would somehow be hurt, and I don't want him to be harmed at such an early age. He should have a carefree childhood, just like the other kids have, and when I saw that Lucia insulted him, I was really angry. Do you know how sad I am that she's Joe's aunt and she dared to treat him like that?"

Cherry couldn't help but cry. She was mad at Lucia not because she had insulted her, but because she had done that to her son. The only thing that she wanted to do was to protect Joe and to provide him with the best life that she could.

Jackson felt heartbroken when he saw her tears. He then quickly turned to look at her and wiped the tears off of her face.

quiet late hours of the night, Andrew was sitting in front of his desk in the reading room, lost in deep in thought. He pondered, 'How should I deal with these things?
