"You..." Fiona was literally shaking in anger and humiliation. Her face became red. She could barely tolerate the insult but looking at her husband and son coyly giving in to the situation, she had no other choice than to become quiet.

"Fine." Colin walked up towards Fiona and said, "Mom, let's go. It's an important day for Aron and you presence is ruining the party for everyone."

Then he quietly escorted her out. Anderson followed them immediately.

One could have heard a pin drop in the room for a while. And then Mike spoke. He covered his face with his two hands and heaved a sigh, "I'm so unfortunate to have such a disobedient son."

"Calm down. Otherwise, it will effect your health." Joanna patted Mike's back gently and persuaded him, "We all are well aware of Fiona's nature. This is nothing new to us. So there is no point in getting angry with her."

Mike managed to bring a smile on his face but could not hide the pain. He turned to John and said, "I'm so sorry for... what happened today."

"It's Okay." John spoke after exchanging a glance with Jina, "Actually, that lady needn't worry so much. We have discuss about the money for our daughter's wedding well in advance."

He stopped for a moment and added, "We... don't want any money from you."

"What?" Mike, Joanna and even Aron were taken aback. Aron said to John, "Please don't take Fiona's words to your heart. The money... is paid by me. It has nothing to do with my grandparents. So please don't feel the pressure to take it."

John paused for a moment and continued, "I don't want to be considered to have allowed I

Edward always spent the Spring Festival every year by traveling before he got reunited with Chris. He had a group of friends in his company and had planed to travel with Rachel this year. Unfortunately, they would never have such a chance to be on a holiday together.

Edward was really disappointed for that.

But he could forget all his distress temporarily in the company of his friends. So he had a good time in this trip.

Gary asked Chris after she hung up the phone, "What did he say? Will he come home?"

Edward hadn't come home to spend the Spring Festival together with them for many years now. Gary really wanted him to come back this year though he didn't speak about this secret wish. When Chris called Edward, Gary was happy and thought he would come back.

But Chris shook her head and told Gary that Edward was traveling.

Gary was a little disheartened. But his mood changed for good because there were so many guests in his house.

Even Sam had come.

People gathered at the table, waiting for Nancy to put all the dishes on the table, while the countless firecrackers were set off to celebrate the big festival.

The Spring Festival was coming!
