Jackson saw Cherry's car in the driveway and felt relieved knowing she was still there. He walked up the short path and flung the door open, looking around expectantly.

Lily was engrossed in her cleaning and jumped when the door opened. When she saw it was Jackson, she went to the door greeting him with a happy smile, "You are finally here, Mr. Jackson."

Jackson hurriedly asked, "Yes, yes! Is Cherry still upstairs?"

Lily nodded, "Yes, she is, " she replied, beaming with pure joy.

"Good, okay, you go ahead and finish what you are doing. I'm going up to see her, " he said as he headed for the stairs.

He was in a hurry to get to his wife, and took the stairs two at a time. When he opened the door, he saw Cherry silently sitting on the floor staring out the window. Jackson's heart twisted in pain, and he wondered how long she had been sitting there. Why was she on the bare floor, and not on the carpet?

Jackson strode over her, and hunched down next to her, "Babe, why are you sitting here?"

Cherry was so engrossed in her little daydream that she didn't figure out who was talking to her, so she turned back and saw Jackson squatting near her.

Instead of replying, Cherry asked, "Jackson, why are you home so early?"

Jackson reached out and took her into his arms, gently stroked her hair and asked her in a soft-spoken tone, "Little fool, why are you sitting down here on cold, hard floor? Aren't you afraid of catching a cold?"

Cherry reached out wrapping herself around his torso, "I just wanted to enjoy the view outside and before I knew it, I was sitting here."

Jackson gently chided her, "Remember to sit on the carpet next time, silly."

"Okay, I will, " she responded absently as she realized Jackson hadn't answered her. She asked affectionately, "Why don't you answer me?"

Jackson replied, "Lily told me that you were here, so I rushed home before you vanished on me again."

There was worry in Cherry's eyes as she looked up at him, "Jackson, you know, I have to leave again, " she was afraid that Jackson would be disappointed, but she couldn't stay.

Jackson's tone remained gentle as though speaking to a child, "Coul

cuddling for quite a long time. They left home at the same time, with Cherry heading back to Mond's and Jackson going to the bar.

Rather than going directly to Mond's, Cherry took the route to the hospital. She brought the two hairs to the lab for a paternity test.

As she left the building, Cherry reminded herself silently that the doctor had told her it would take three days for the test results to come in, which meant, she would need to make another trip back to the hospital in three days.

When Cherry returned to Mond's villa, Jean was watching TV in the living room. She immediately got up and went to greet Cherry, "Cherry, you're back!"

Cherry nodded and then asked, "Yes. Where's Mond?"

Jean replied, "I don't know. Maybe, he went out. Anyway, he's not around."

Cherry told her sister, "Oh-okay. I am going to go lay down for a rest. I'm quite tired today."

Jean gently said, "You go, have a rest then. You've had a long day, out and about. I'll call you when dinner's ready."

Cherry replied, "Okay, thank you, Jean."

At the Chu residence, Derek and Amy went into the living room. Not able to find anyone there, Derek called into the kitchen where Lily was tirelessly working.

Derek's voice was loud and carried, "Lily, where's Jackson?"

Lily walked out of the kitchen before she answered, "Oh hello Mr. Derek and Miss Amy. I'm not really sure where Mr. Jackson is. You could try the reading room upstairs."
