&#lt;p&#gt;&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Standing quietly, that cool little face was emotionless and was calm. The dark pupils were filled with
strange emotions and looked exactly like himself.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Master, your father misses your mother a lot. Don’t blame him and it had nothing to do with you!” Mrs.
Howe comforted him as she wiped his tears.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;How much of the father’s words could a five year old child endure? Mrs. Howe tried to comfort William
but the small boy shook his head.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Mrs. Howe, I understand. I know that I lost my mother when she gave birth to me. It’s my fault! It’s all
my fault!” The voice of a five year old child should be innocent but his was mature and rigid. William
turned and walked into the garden. Even the sun could not warm up his loneliness and burden.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“What are you thinking of?” Dan didn’t receive his answer and asked again.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Dan’s words broke John’s train of thought and once he came to his senses, he looked at those eyes
and his heart strangely ached. Vivien, why do this child’s eyes look so much like you?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John felt every part of him ache when he thought of his wife.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Mr. Rowland, what are you thinking about?” Dan was puzzled and looked at him. What’s wrong with
him?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John came to his senses and looked at the child again as he shook his head, “Boy, what is your
name?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Didn’t I tell you?” Dan remembered that he had told Mr. Rowland his name.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Maybe I’m old and can’t remember!”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“You are not old!” Dan pursed his lips, “Our guard at the school is older than you!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Ha!” Perhaps it was due to what Dan said, John grinned again and felt strangely close to him.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;At this moment, a child’s cry could be heard from upstairs. It was Sammy’s voice.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Old man, you lied, you are not a good person!” Dan frowned and rebuked. “Sammy is upstairs. You
lied to me that he is overseas. Liar! Shame shame!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“What?” John’s face turned red and felt like he had been caught in a lie. It was the first time someone
had said that to him. After a long while, his expression changed, and said, “Go home and tell your
mommy that Sammy is the grandchild of the Rowland family. It was agreed in the beginning and she
must not renege on the agreement!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“What renege?” Dan asked, “My mommy will not renege. I’m going to shout to Sammy! Sammy! I’m
Dan. I’m downstairs, come down quickly!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;The cry paused for a moment and then became even louder, “Waahhh…”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John frowned even more, “Cry cry cry, you only know how to cry…”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Sammy, come down!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John endured his discontent and shouted, “What are you crying for?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Suddenly it fell silent and only sobs could be heard.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“You, you yelled at him!” Dan rebuked, “I’m going to tell mommy that you mistreated Sammy. Old man,
you will go to jail for this!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;When John heard this, he sat up from the sofa and said sternly, “He is my grandchild and I can do
whatever I want! Servant, send this child home!”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Old Master! I’m coming!” Mrs. Howe rushed in and loved Dan as soon as she saw him. She wiped his
tears and asked, “Boy, where are your parents? How old are you? What’s your name?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Dan looked around and saw a granny who smiled radiantly at him. He said adorably, “Hi granny, I’m
Daniel. You can call me Dan. Sammy is my mommy’s child. My mommy found me. I’m here to take
Sammy to see my mommy! Granny, can you tell this grandpa to give Sammy back to my mommy?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Your mommy?” Mrs. Howe was stunned and couldn’t come to terms with what he said, “Sammy’s
mommy?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Mrs. Howe, get someone to send him back!” John’s voice was low and stern.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Mrs. Howe was stunned and said, “Old master, since it’s Sammy’s mommy, should they meet? Little
master had been crying for far too long!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“None of your business! He’ll stop once he had cried enough!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“You’re heartless!” Dan raised his eyebrows. He thought for a while before saying, “How can Sammy
have a grandfather like you? You are not kind at all. You are a hateful old man!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;What Dan said shocked Mrs. Howe. Based on her memory, when William was young he once said the
same about his father. He said, “You are a hateful father!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;When Dan said that Mrs. Howe was shocked and looked at John. She was worried that John would
rage but he just looked calmly at Dan and was full of admiration. He lowered his head to look at the
small boy and at that small face. Dan was facing directly to him with full of disdain as if he despised
him.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Old master, the way this child speaks is like when William was young. He is truly adorable!” Mrs. Howe
couldn’t help but laugh. How time flies, she thought, twenty plus years went by in the blink of an eye.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Granny, what are you laughing about? Quickly get Sammy to come down. Didn’t you hear that Sammy
was crying? It wasn’t easy for him to finally get a mommy. Furthermore, uncle said that Sammy can
remain by mommy’s side. Quickly get grandpa to let him come down.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Old master, why don’t we…” Mrs. Howe said halfway.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“No! Let him go back!” John yelled coldly, turned, and walked upstairs.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;When Dan heard that John wanted him to leave and not let him see Sammy, his dark eyes revealed a
determination that was unlike a child, “Old man, you better don’t regret!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John was startled and turned as he was on the stairs, “Are you threatening me?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Yes!” Dan said with that baby voice but his tone was more mature than his age.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“What do you intend to do?” John started to grin.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“I’ll tell everyone that you mistreat a child!” Dan already thought about it. He wants to post this on the
chat forums and to the websites and let others know that his mommy has a child!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Hmm? How will you tell?” John laughed. John had not laughed for the entire year and when he did, it
was so radiant.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Mrs. Howe was stunned! If she wasn’t mistaken, Old master had not laughed for thirty years! How
could this be? Did she see wrongly? She looked at the way the child pout and it was so much like
William. Especially those eyes, the handsome eyebrows and deep gaze, the small, firm, and upright
nose.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;His red lips pursed, “That’s none of your business!” Dan looked at John’s grin and turned, “Hmph,
farewell!”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Woah!” Mrs. Howe ran after him, “Son, where is your home? I’ll send you back!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Okay!” Dan thought about and he couldn’t possibly walk back and might as well let this kind granny
send him back.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John looked at the small boy leave and strange thoughts flooded his mind. When he reached the
second floor, he heard Sammy sobbing as the servant stood by the door. Once she saw the old master,
she quickly stood up and greeted, “Old master.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Young master is still crying?” John had never seen such a useless child. Just look at that kid just now.
He really felt that his grandson could not be compared to Dan. He felt so ashamed!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Yes, from the previous day when he came back till now. he was crying for his mommy!” The servant
reported honestly.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John heard and his expression immediately darkened, “Open the door!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Yes!” The door was opened.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John saw Sammy sobbing and facing downwards on the bed.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Why are you crying? What can you achieve by crying?” A stern voice thundered which scared Sammy
till only his shoulders were twitching, not daring to cry anymore.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John saw that Sammy was scared of him and frustration welled up as he said, “Enough, stop crying!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sammy laid on the bed and dared not move in inch. John had experienced this far too many times.
Each time his grandson cried he would feel very frustrated. How could he have such a grandson?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“How could a boy cry whenever he experienced a hardship? Your daddy never cried when he was a
child. You must learn from your daddy and not become a weakling! A boy must be brave and never&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;cry!” John walked out after saying.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sammy’s small body continued to tremble and sob but he yelled, “I want mommy!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;This was the first time he was so persistent, urgent, and brave. Sammy quickly slide off the bed, ran
outside and looked determined at John, and yelled, “Grandpa, I want mommy!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John turned and saw his grandson and didn’t expect that his grandson became so brave immediately
after John said to him. Good! Not bad! This was the first time that Sammy dared to speak to him in that
manner!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“No mommy!” He said coldly.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“I want mommy!” Sammy yelled.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Bring young master back into the room!” John said and the servant carried Sammy in.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Grandpa, I want mommy. I don’t like grandpa, I want mommy!” Sammy struggled as he yelled while he
was carried into the room…
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Son, what’s your mommy’s name?” Mrs. Howe had the driver send Dan home but she accompanied
him in the car. She really loved this child. He was very adorable, strong, and mature for his age.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Sherry!” Dan answered adorably.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;A taxi passed by them just as the car left the Rowland residence. Sherry hurried off the car and ran to
the main door.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Miss, who are you looking for?” Lyford was startled that there were so many visitors that day.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Did a child come here?” Sherry asked anxiously, worried that Dan had found his way there.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Child?” Lyford pointed to the car that just drove away and said, “They just left, Mrs. Howe sent him
back!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“What’s his name?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“He said that he’s Daniel!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Oh my God!” Sherry was about to get into the car when someone shouted.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Who is it outside?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Old master, someone’s here to look for that boy!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Bring her in!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Miss, our old master wants to see you!” The guard stopped Sherry.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“But…” She looked at the car in a distance and was very anxious. She said to the taxi driver, “Please
wait for me, I’ll be out in a short while!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She didn’t want to come to look for Sammy because William said that he would handle it but she didn’t
expect Dan to find the place. That child was far too daring to be able to find the Rowland residence on
his own.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;In the living hall.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Are you Ms. Murray?” John thought about that day when he was waiting at the restaurant, “Do you
work at Leon’s restaurant?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Yes!” Sherry said.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Ms. Murray, I didn’t expect that you are Sammy’s mother!” John said directly.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry tensed up as she nodded, “I also didn’t expect that Sammy is my son!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“But Ms. Murray, you should understand that it was an agreement. So what is your motive now?” John
raised his eyebrow and looked sharply at the woman in front of him. She didn’t look like the type of
woman who would sell herself but she did use her body to bear a child for someone else. This kind of
woman was very dangerous. Her pure and innocent looks could be just superficial.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“I want my child back!”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;
