Before turning in that night, Jackson and Cherry packed their things.

Jackson held Cherry close to him, cuddling as they laid in the bed.

Her voice wavered with worry, as Cherry spoke,"Honey, I am still upset about leaving the kids behind."

"Don't worry. Derek is going to help. Amy and he are going to look in on Lawrence and Violet to make sure everything's okay," Jackson said reassuringly to Cherry.

"I called my mom and she asked if Lawrence and Violet could go live with her," Cherry told him.

"It's probably better if we don't trouble them like that," replied Jackson.

"Umm," Cherry replied,"Yes, Lawrence can take care of himself, but it's different for Violet. I'm worried about her."

Knowing Cherry still had misgivings, Jackson told her in a soft, calming tone,"Sweetheart, Lawrence will take care of her. There's no need to worry."

"Ummm, okay. We should get to sleep. We need to get up early tomorrow," Cherry said.

The next morning, Cherry went about her usual routine. She got up, and went straight to her daughter's room.

"Mom," Lawrence Chu called out from behind Cherry before she reached her daughter's room.

Smiling warmly as she turned to her son who was standing across the hall, she greeted him,"Good morning, my boy!"

"Are you going to wake Violet up?" Lawrence Chu asked. He knew his mother was heading to his sister's room to wake her, but, he wanted to show his mom he could handle things while his parents were away. So, he stood a little straighter as he approached Cherry and told her,"You can leave this to me. We will meet you and dad downstairs shortly for breakfast."

"Okay, but tell her to be quick, or she won't be ready when Amy gets here to take her to school and might forget something," Cherry recommended.

"Yes, Mom, I know," Lawrence Chu told his mom before quietly opening the door to Violet's room, and going in.

In the darkened room, Lawrence Chu lightly tapped on his sister's shoulder as he whispered,"Violet, i

nto the car, Lawrence Chu turned back to his mom and asked,"Mom, call me when you arrive in Hong Kong, don't forget, okay?"

"Okay, I'll give you a call," said Cherry waving goodbye.

Watching Bill's car disappear down the road upset Cherry, and left a knot in her stomach. Jackson came up next to Cherry and slid his hand over her shoulder, squeezing her to him in comfort,"Now that the kids are off to school, it's time for us to leave for the airport."

"Honey, I don't want to leave them," Cherry expressed scowling,"Lawrence is a thoughtful brother and will look after his sister, Violet and make sure nothing happens," Jackson said encouragingly. Another idea came to him, but Jackson found it difficult to voice.

Seeing Cherry so dismayed, standing there looking like the world was ending tugged at Jackson's heart. With a sigh, he finally suggested,"How about I go to Hong Kong alone, and you stay here at home with the children?"

Jackson's words surprised Cherry, and she turned to meet his gaze. Seeing the resolve glinting in his eyes, Cherry knew he was serious.

"No, I can't let you go alone, I will come too. I made up my mind. We have Lily, Bill and Amy to watch over Lawrence and Violet. But, who would look after you? If you are there alone, no one will be taking care of you," Cherry replied firmly.
