Chapter 199 Some Doubts

"Cherry, you're back home! This is wonderful!" cheerfully said Andrew while he held Cherry's hands.

Then, Joe came closer to his mother, and quietly stood beside her. He looked at the old man with silver hair in front of him, and felt that they had met before. Also, he was impressed by the old man's high spirit. He seemed to be as bossy as Jackson was, but older. After he inspected this old man more closely, Joe felt that he was friendly, and he thought that this must be Jackson's Grandpa, and his Great-Grandpa.

When Cherry saw that Joe's eyes were completely focused on Andrew, she quickly said, "Joe, he is your Great-Grandpa."

After Joe heard his Mommy's words, he greeted him in a cute way, "Good morning, Great-Grandpa!"

"Joe, you're such a good kid, " said Andrew while he gently caressed Joe's face. He immediately seemed to like Joe, and continued to say in a nostalgic manner, "You're exactly what Jackson looked like when he was your age!"

Andrew didn't frighten Joe; instead, Joe stretched out his hands, and after he embraced Andrew, he said, "Great-Grandpa, I wanted to meet you so much! Both Daddy and Mommy have been very busy, or otherwise I would have visited you sooner!"

After they heard Joe's words, Cherry and Jackson looked at each other, and a surprised look appeared on both of their faces. They found it funny that their son, who was at such a young age, knew how to complain.

"Joe, from now on, if your parents are too busy to bring you here, just call me and I'll send somebody to pick you up, " said Andrew happily.

"Really?" asked Joe, surprised.

Andrew nodded, and continued to say, "Joe, trust me, I'll never lie to you. Besides, both your Mommy and Daddy would never dare to disobey me, so please, set your mind at rest."

Delighted, Joe shot a couple of defiant glances at his parents, who seemed to be ridiculed by his excuse. "Have you heard what Great-Grandpa just said? You can't disobey him, haha!" said Joe.

"You..." Cherry was somehow irritated by her son's naughty attitude. Joe, who had always behaved in such an obedient and cute way at home, now had the audacity to complain in front of his Great-Grandpa.

Sticking up for Joe, Andrew also appeared to be serious, and said, "Jackson, Cherry, really now, if you're too busy, I can always ask the butler to pick Joe up from home."
