When Jean was done watering the gardens she saw Cherry coming towards her, she hastily said, "Cherry, why aren't you reading up in the study? Why'd you come out here? Go back in and get your coat on! It's freezing out here! You need to take care or you'll catch your death of cold."

"Jean, don't fret so. I'm all right. It's too stuffy inside, so, I came out here, for a breath of fresh air, " replied Cherry as she walked over to Jean.

Jean smiled and said, "Alright, you can help me water the flowers, if you like. I have nothing to do every day, so I tend the gardens to help kill time."

"Well, now I'm here with you!"

While Mond drove, Joe watched the passing scenery out the window, glancing at Mond from time to time.

"What's wrong? Did you wanna talk about something?" Mond asked when he noticed the peculiar look Joe gave him.

"Oh, you saw that?" Joe asked, a little embarrassed that Mond noticed the look he shot him.

"So? Spill it, what's on your mind?" asked Mond as he looked at road ahead.

"Can I ask you some questions, Uncle Mond?" Looking over at Mond's profile, Joe thought he was very handsome, with an aura of mystery. Anyone could see his expression, but not his thoughts.

"Well, since you've started, why don't you keep asking?" Mond replied.

Joe thought Mond's tone was somewhat cold, but he went on asking, "Why are you so kind to my Mommy?" And why don't you and my Daddy get along? Is it because of...a thing?"

Joe's innocent way of asking penetrating questions shocked Mond. He glanced over at Joe confused and then pulled over to the side of the road and parked.

Looking at Joe with a look of surprise, Mond asked, "What do you think you know?"

"Don't look so surprised, Uncle Mond. Maybe, I know everything I should know, " replied Joe. He wasn't really sure if what he guessed and found out through investigating was true, but, he decided not to pretend too much c

ghtly, and his dark eyes became darker, as his face contorted angrily.

Seeing Joe's trembling lips, Mond knew his expression had frightened the little child, he tried to calm himself down. After all, Joe was Cherry's son, and he did not want anything to happen bad to him, mostly because he didn't know how he would explain it to Cherry if her son ended up hurt because of him.

"Alright, look, you are just a child, and all you need to do right now is to study. Don't ask about adult affairs, okay? I'll take you to school now, " said Mond before revving the engine and driving away.

Joe sat next to Mond silently as thoughts raced through his head, 'Well, I may not have learned any useful details from Mond, but, at least now I know more about his character and personality. I know what kind of person Mond is, and maybe, I can help Daddy and Mommy if Mond tries to harm them one day.'

When the car parked in front of the school gate, Joe unbuckled his seat belt and picked up his schoolbag saying, "Thank you for the ride, I'm going into class now."

Nodding Mond replied, "Go ahead."

After watching Joe go into the school building, Mond felt relieved and drove away.

At the ZM office building

Mond sat at his desk, in his private office immersed in thought.
