For Melissa, as long as she was with her son, she would still have a home.

"Oh, really, Dad? Thank you! Thank you so much. I..." Although she had expected it, she still couldn't hold back the ecstatic thrill at the sound of Gary's answer. On cloud nine, she gushed, "I promise that I will take good care of you, Dad."

"No, thanks. I am old, but I am in good health, and I can attend to myself. All I want is that you treat Charles, his wife, and children well," Gary stressed earnestly.

"Charles is my son. Of course, I will be kind and agreeable to him," Melissa responded promptly. Pausing for a moment, she added, "And his children."

Gary didn't sense that she ignored Sheryl. But even if he had been able to catch on, he wouldn't give too much thought to it. They used to live together, and he knew Melissa.

Charles meant everything to her. And that was something he could never doubt.

"Well, that's it. If you don't have anything else, you can leave now. As for you moving in with us, I need to talk to Charles first. I am afraid that he might find it hard to take in that his mother appears out of nowhere," Gary proposed. Now that Melissa already got what she wanted, she might not want to stay here any longer, he thought.

"Yup. I gotta go. It's getting late, so please don't stay outside too late," Melissa replied thoughtfully. Since things went on smoothly as expected, she decided to leave. She didn't have much to talk to her husband's father, after all.

After getting off duty, Charles drove straight to Cloud Advertising Company to pick Sheryl up.

Sheryl was a workaholic. Once she got much work to do, she would definitely lose track of time and work for extended hours. Even though she was a CEO now, she still worked as hard as before.

Charles leisurely waited for Sheryl in his car. He watched as the staff from Cloud Advertising Company leave one by one, and yet there was still no sign of his wife.

He was growing impatient, so he took out the phone and dialed Sheryl's number. Several minutes had passed, but no one answered the phone.

He wondered whether she had her hands full so that she didn't even try at least to pick up his call. As he was about to hang up and go to the company to find Sheryl, a voice from the other end of the line reached his ears. "Hello, Charles."

"Come on, honey, do you know what time it is now? It's time to get off work. No matter what you are doing, stop it and collect your things. I am waiting for you outside your company

inner was already served on the table while Clark and Shirley seemed to be waiting for them at their seats. The two kids, who fixed their gaze at the door, simultaneously grumbled noticing their parents coming in, "Dad, Mom, you are finally back. We are starving."

"Wow, are we having a celebration for something? What a bountiful meal!" Charles exclaimed with glee, fixing his eyes on the dishes on the table. His stomach started to growl.

"Charles, Sher, please wash your hands and join us. I have an important announcement to make," Gary began amiably. Taking a sit, he shifted his gaze on his grandchildren and said, "Shirley, Clark, you can eat first if you feel hungry. Your parents will join us soon."

"No, Great-grandpa. I will wait for Dad and Mom," Clark replied obediently.

"Me too," Shirley followed.

"You are good kids," Gary praised. Transfixing his eyes on the two obedient kids, he was overwhelmed with contentment.

Sheryl and Charles came back and took their seats. The latter beamed, "What are you going to announce, Grandpa? You even prepared a feast."

"Yes, Grandpa, what is it?" Sheryl asked curiously.

"Let's eat first," Gary suggested as he picked up his chopsticks and began to eat.

Charles opened his mouth and intended to ask. But he controlled his curiosity when he took note of Gary's expression. He raised his head and glanced at Sheryl. The latter also had no idea what the old man was up to. With a casual look, she rested her eyes on her children and urged, "Didn't you say you were hungry? You can eat now."

Reminded by what Sheryl had said, Charles realized that Gary would announce the news after they had dinner.
