The room was so quiet that Cherry could have heard a pin drop. The only sound though was the rustle of paper moving as pen scrawled across it. It filled Cherry's heart with pride and happiness to see her son study so hard.

"Mommy, " Joe called cheerfully to his mother. "I've finished all my homework." He closed his exercise book with a big smile adoring his face.

"Wow, that's very fast, " Cherry praised her boy. "You've finished so early. Let me help you check it." Cherry picked up his exercise book and began perusing it. Her pride grew as she saw he had only made one single mistake.

Joe watched his mother reading through his sums. "Mommy, as long as I'm with you, I can do things well, " he told her, his voice a little higher and more infantile than usual. He was having a hard time hiding his distress at seeing his beautiful Mommy so thin. He could see the worry in her eyes and could only wonder what was concerning her so. 'Daddy is always there for Mommy, ' Joe thought to himself. 'He loves her and protects her. So, why does Mommy look so worried?'

Cherry smiled, laying her hand gently on the top of his head. "Joe, do you like Miss Amy?" she asked softly.

Joe hesitated. "Mommy, are you talking about my piano teacher, Miss Amy Xu?" Having considered, he could only think of one Amy, who was his piano teacher, with that name.

"Yes, " Cherry nodded.

"Of course!" he responded in a perky manner. "Miss Amy is super nice. She is very patient and gentle in our lessons." He hesitated again, but quicker this time. "Mommy, to be honest, Amy is better than some of the teachers at my school."

His response relieved Cherry, especially for the news she had the opportunity to break. "Well, I've got something to tell you about her, " she cooed. If he liked Amy this much, surely Joe would be very happy after hearing her news about Amy.

"Okay, I'm listening, Mommy, " he replied. He stared at his mother intently, wondering what she wanted to tell him.

Cherry paused for e

and son interact, Cherry took a bite before asking, "Joe, do you like the dinner your Auntie cooked?"

"Yes, it's really yummy, " Joe murmured with food in his mouth. "Auntie is really good at cooking, just like Lily at home."

"Well, now that I have such high praise from my loving nephew, I'll have to cook more for you in future, " Jean replied, a big smile crossing her own delicate face.

Guilt stabbing her uncomfortably, Cherry looked at Jean. Her elder sister kept looking after her all this time. But being the elder sister, Jean shouldn't be acting like a servant of the family. Cherry felt apologetic.

Suddenly putting down her utensil, she took Jean's hand in hers. "Jean, I want to thank you so much for taking care of me."

"You are always welcome, dear sister. Now that you're living here, I'll take responsibility to take good care of you, " Jean smiled gently.

"That's really nice, Auntie, " Joe declared loudly and happily.

His praise delighted Jean very much. Children are always honest to their feelings and Joe's were especially important to her. She loved kids, and Joe was definitely her favourite.

Mond continued to eat silently. He did listen to their conversation; how could he not? He was sitting at the same table. But he didn't know how to involve himself, so he continued to eat silently.
