Cherry rushed home that afternoon, and breathed a sigh of relief to see Joe happily watching cartoons in the living room. Still concerned, she blurted, "Joe, what happened today?"

"Don't worry, Mommy, nothing happened." Reassured Joe as he ran over to his Mommy. He smiled, "I knew you were busy at work and you would be tired, and didn't want you to exhaust yourself, so, I called Uncle Bill and asked him to pick me up after school. See? Here I am safe at home!"

"Really? Nothing happened?" Cherry asked again. Her heart hadn't stopped pounding with fear since Joe called earlier and told her to go home after work. He said Bill was collecting him after school, which left her worried that something had happened, so, she rushed home to check on him. To her surprise and relief, she'd found he was relaxed, and plopped out in front of the tv.

"Nothing happened, " said Joe smiling, "Mommy, your son is very clever! Why wouldn't I tell you if something had happened?"

That put Cherry's mind at ease, and she finally stopped worrying. Looking down at her contented son, Cherry couldn't help but shake her head and reprimand him, "Do you know how worried I was when I got your call? I thought something happened."

"But, now you see, I am really okay! Everything is good, Mommy!" said Joe impatiently waving his hand.

"Joe, get over here and show proper respect to your Mommy!" Cherry knitted her brow, pretending to be mad at him and said, "You're such a brat, letting me worry for you like that!"

Joe took his Mommy's hands and with a tone of reverence declared, "Long live my Empress Mother!" he peered at her before he added, "Will you sleep on the couch with me tonight?"

"You brat, what are you up to? Be careful that your father doesn't find out. Or he will punch you when gets home." Cherry smiled, lightly scolding Joe.

"Well, I don't think Daddy will punch me! He's reluctant to hit me, because he loves me dearly!" said Joe in a co

ntil you give me a sister."

Jackson smiled at Joe's comment, tousling his hair and said confidently, "Okay, just you wait for the good news then. Now, we have get downstairs for dinner."

"It's ready?" asked Joe.

Jackson nodded, "Yes, and Mommy ordered me to get you."

"Oh, okay, we better listen to Mommy, " said Joe looking up at his Daddy as he tucked his hand into Jackson's, "Let's get downstairs."

As the small family sat around the table eating, they chatted about the day. Cherry asked Joe, "How was school today?"

"Pretty good! I had a good time playing with my classmates." Joe commented indifferently.

"But, are you studying hard? That's what I wanted to know." Cherry's voice seemed a little stern.

"Mommy, I already learned the material we are being taught now. I know it, even without extra studying. If you don't believe, just wait for the exam results. You will see, I will be the number one student again!" Joe bragged with confidence. When he lived abroad with his Mother, his Grandpa and Uncle had him learning ahead of his grade, and he believed he knew so much more than his classmates.

Inside Cherry was proud of Joe, but she didn't show her true feelings on her face. Keeping a serious tone, she said, "As a student, you need to keep working hard at school."
