"Sheryl, you didn't do anything wrong. Do you know how I've wished you'd call me that? I've even dreamed about it, Sher. I am so excited to hear you call me that!" Melissa burst into joyful tears.

Sheryl was a bit embarrassed. She was still so worried about Shirley, and she just wanted to see her daughter, but Melissa was getting emotional, so she didn't want to say anything yet.

As Sheryl kept silent, Damian was getting agitated.

"Sher, how's Shirley?" The instant Damian heard Sheryl address Melissa as 'mom, ' his heart skipped a beat. Sheryl couldn't ask about Shirley anymore because Melissa was so caught up with how Sheryl had called her. So he purposely asked this question so they could finally know what had happened to Shirley.

"Who's this?" Melissa was startled to see a stranger suddenly come in.

He seemed to be close to Sheryl as he called her by her nickname.

It was only then that Sheryl remembered that Damian was with her. She then introduced him to Melissa, "Aunt Melissa, this is Damian, my... my friend." She gestured to Damian. "This is Aunt Melissa, Clark's grandmother." She then gestured to Melissa.

"Nice to meet you!" Damian greeted Melissa courteously, even though he could sense that Melissa really didn't want him here.

As petty as Melissa was, she didn't greet him at all as she could tell that Damian liked Sheryl as more than a friend.

"Sher, what do we do now? Shirley's still in the hospital. I'm so worried." Melissa seized Sheryl's hand, her eyes turning red.

Sheryl could understand that Melissa was worried about Shirley, so she just ignored that she had been a bit impolite to Damian just now. She pacified her by saying, "Mom, don't worry. Just tell me what happened as I really don't know what happened yet..."

"Okay, okay. So after dinner…" Melissa narrated the whole thing to Sheryl.

When Melissa was done telling the story, Sheryl exclaimed, "Shirley had dessert and ice cream after d

.

Clark answered in the only way he knew how. "Yes, he's very close to mom. When we traveled abroad, mom would invite him to our house, and he would bring us food. We love him. He's great!"

Melissa wasn't pleased to hear this. While she really wanted to know more about the two, it also irked her to hear stories about them.

Clark wanted to tell Melissa more, but it seemed that she didn't want to hear it anymore.

Based on Clark's stories, Melissa knew that Damian had feelings for Sheryl.

'Hmm, it looks like this guy is even better competition than the guy who had sent Sheryl flowers. He's chosen a foolproof way of getting closer to Sheryl. I'm sure he's looking for every chance he could get to be with Sheryl, ' Melissa pondered inwardly.

The more she thought about it, the more anxious she became. If Shirley wasn't in the hospital right now, she would have called Charles and told him all about this.

She wanted to warn Charles about Damian.

Clark was starting to get confused. 'Why does grandma look like this?

Didn't she want to hear the stories? Why would she make me tell her if she didn't want to hear them in the first place?' he wondered.

He then realized how much he didn't know about being an adult. 'It must be difficult to be an adult, ' he thought to himself.
