Go Chapter 480 “Good, good. You’ve always been such a filial granddaughter, Serenity,” Granny said with a smile. Filial? A touch of gloom appeared on Serenity’s face. If she really was filial, she would have taken her grandmother to the city to live with her so that she could take care of her. However, right now, she was living with Jark. If she wanted to do so, she would have to talk to him first and get his consent. “If you don’t mind, Granny, why don’t you come stay with Serenity in Solaria so that she can take care of you?” Jackson suddenly asked. Serenity looked at Jackson in surprise. She did not expect him to propose that. Granny seemed to be surprised as well. She smiled and said, “That’s very kind of you, but I’m used to staying here. Besides, I have children of my own, so if I let my granddaughter take care of me instead, people will gossip. When I feel better, I’ll go visit you two in Solaria.” Granny turned to Serenity and said, “You better go now or you’ll get back home really Serenity nodded. “I’ll come again, Granny.” After saying goodbye to Granny, Serenity and Jackson got into the car and drove away. From the rearview mirror, Serenity saw Granny watching their car leave. She could not help feeling a little teary again. She felt like her grandmother had aged a lot compared to the last time she saw her. It seemed that, although Granny had recovered from the illness, it had taken a huge toll on her body. Because of her age, she would probably need a long time to become healthy again. “If you’re worried about your grandmother, I can find a way to get her to Solaria,” said Jackson. Serenity shook her head. “There’s no need for that. She’ll probably recover faster if she recuperates at home.” Although her uncles and aunt were not particularly filial, they all had something in common…. and that was their pridefulness. In this town, everybody knew each other. If they did not take good care of Granny, they would be labeled as unfilial by the townsfolk Serenity also noticed that Granny’s clothes, bedding and room looked clean. That meant they were at least taking care of Granny properly. “Thank you for today,” said Serenity. “For what?” Jackson asked with raised eyebrows, “For driving you here?” “For being so accommodating of those relatives of mine,” replied Serenity. Otherwise, her Grandpa’s bad attitude and her aunt and cousin’s snide remarks would have landed them in big trouble. “I wouldn’t say I was accommodating. I simply pretended that they didn’t exist,” said Jackson. He was there to keep her company. He couldn’t care less about those people. “But aren’t you mad at them for talking to you like that?” “Sometimes, but it doesn’t bother me anymore,” said Serendly, “I told myself, even though they’re my relatives, I don’t have to care about what they think or say. It’s not like I live with them. I only see then a few times a year,” Maybe it’s because she had been through a lot, she understood that, even if she tried hard to please others, the people who did not like her would still dislike her. Therefore, she should only care about the people who truly cared about her. As for other people, they’re not worth her time. Jackson sneaked a glance at Serenity. She sat there quietly with a calm expression on her face as if she had gained an understanding of certain things in life.

Chapter 479 “Thank goodness you look different now,” Jackson murmured. He did not want a woman like that to have Serenity’s face. But the fact that they looked alike when they were kids was quite fortunate. Jackson’s eyelashes trembled slightly as he looked down in contemplation, his long eyelashes covering up the schemes and calculations …
Chapter 478 Jackson bent down a little and asked softly in Serenity’s car, “Is it?” Serenity was speechless. How could she answer that? 1 Granny sighed and held her granddaughter’s hand. “You have to hurry up or I’m afraid I won’t be able to attend your wedding Serenity was stunned. When her grandmother held her hand, she realized that her grandmother was much thinner than before. She could feel the bones in her grandmother’s fingers with a light grip. It was as if there was only a thin layer of skin wrapped around her grandmother’s bones, without any flesh. Granny… had aged more than she expected. Serenity felt a pang of sadness, and it showed on her face. “Hey, why are you looking sad again?” Granny gently patted the back of Serenity’s hand and said, “I’m glad to see that you’re living well and there’s someone taking care of you. I wouldn’t know how to face your mother after 1 die otherwise.” “Granny, don’t say that!” Serenity rebuked anxiously. Superstition or not, she was really scared that her grandmother would suddenly leave her. Her grandmother was the only person in the world who treated her as family! “Fine, fine, I won’t talk about it. I’ll make sure to stay alive for a few more years so that I can watch you get married. Hopefully, I can watch you give birth to a child too,” Granny said with a smile. Serenity finally felt more at ease. She brought over the pastries she bought for her grandmother. The three of them chatted as they ate. Granny asked Jackson some questions about his family. When she heard that Jackson’s only family left was his grandfather, that his father had passed away, and that his mother had left him when he was young. she could not help but sympathize with him. *Your experience is rather similar to Serenity’s After Serenity’s mother passed away, she stayed with me for some time,” said Granny. Suddenly, she thought of something and asked Jackson, “Thave some of Serenity’s childhood photos. Do you want to take a look?” “Sure,” Jackson did not refuse. Serenity felt a little embarrassed. “Granny!” she protested. “Go fetch my photo album,” Granny ordered Serenity. And so, under the expectant gazes of both Jackson and Granny, Serenity had no choice but to fetch the old photo albem Granny showed Jackson the photos in the album. Every time she came across a photo of Serenity, Granny would tell Jackson the story behind the photo and how it was taken. Although Granny was old, she had a very good memory and could remember many things vividly, down to the details. When she reached a certain photo, Jackson’s eyes namowosd abruptly. He stared fixedly at the photo and asked, “Who’s that?” “Oh, that? That’s Serenity’s cousin, my daughter’s daughter,” answered Granny. Serenity added, “You saw her outside in the living room just now. Her name’s Lynette Blossom.” So it was her, Jackson’s lips twitched with a bemused smile. “You two looked so alilor when you were little, but you look very different now.” “Yeah, we used to look like each other when we were kids, Serenity said, “People would confuse us for each other all the time. But as we grew older, we became more and more different.”
Chapter 477 “What are you talking about, Mom? There’s no way we would dare to bully Serenity when her hoyfriend’s here today. We even have to respectfully address her boyfriend as Mr. Jack!” Theresa mocked sarcastically. Granny was surprised. “Boyfriend? Serenity has a boyfriend? quick, let me see him!” “Okay, I’ll tell him to come in,” said Serenity. She exited the room. Theresa said unhappily, “Mom, I wouldn’t be so happy if I were you. Serenity’s boyfriend looks like a good–for–nothing. He might even be a swindler!” She did not wish to see her more find a good boyfriend because that would mean Serenity had one–upped her own daughter. “Enough. Serenity is a smart child. She wouldn’t fall for sweet words that easily. I’ll see for myself if the man is really a swindler!” said Granny Theresa pouted. After Serenity brought Jackson into the room, Grandma locked at Jackson with a smile on her face and said, ” So you’re Serenity’s boyfriend? What’s your name? Serenity was going to introduce Jackson but he was one step ahead of her. He replied, “My name is Jack Valor, Granny. You can call me Jack” Jackson’s tone was respectful and humble towards the elder, which surprised Serenity because she had never heard him speak with that kind of tone before “Jack? Good, good. I’ll call you jack then Granny laughed, “Serenity is a good kid, but she’s been through a lot. Make sure you treat her well.” “I will. She’s my one and only choice in this life. I won’t have anyone else besides her, Jackson said with a serious expression. Serenity couldn’t help but blush slightly. She gently tugged on Jackson’s sleeve, hinting at him not to be so direct. But Granny was even more direct. “Does that mean you intend to marry Serenity one day?” When Granny asked the question, her cloudy eyes suddenly became sharp, as if she wanted to see the person before her more clearly. “Yes,” Jackson replied without hesitation “If she’s willing, I will marry her.” He had long regarded her as the only woman he would marry in his life. She was the only person he wanted to marry in this world. That’s right he wanted to marry her! He really, really wanted to marry her! He would marry her right now if she said yes. Serenity blushed even harder. Granny laughed and turned to Serenity. “Serenity has made a good choice. I’m glad she found a boyfriend like you. I look forward to attending your wedding one day.” Embarrassinent washed over Serenity. Their wedding. Ugh, Granny’s thinking too far aliead! She and Jackson had only started dating not that long ago! But.. if they get married… Serenity could not help thinking about it… “Granny, it’s way too soon for that!” Serenity stammered.
Chapter 476 A flash of humiliation struck Lynette’s face. Those words Jackson spoke were like a hard slap on her cheek! When Aunt Theresa saw this, she was visibly annoyed and complained to Serenity, “Say, Serenity, your cousin was clearly trying to be friendly just now! Why does your boyfriend have to be so arrogant?! He’s our guest here yet he expects us to treat him like a prince? “My boyfriend is a bit shy with strangers,” Serenity replied nonchalantly, “so he tends to maintain a distance from the people he’s not very familiar with.” Both Theresa and Lynette almost choked on their own saliva Shy?! That man was obviously not shy! But every time that man swept his glance lazily over them, their hearts started to beat violently, almost as if they could not help but be tombed of his gaze. Theresa forced a smile and said nothing more, but Lynette persisted and went on to ask Serenity and Jackson when they had met each other and how they had begun dating each other. She was doing everything she could to figure out Jackson’s background, his jab, his family, and so on. But of course, all these attempts were dismissed vaguely by Serenity. In the end, even after trying to interrogate them for ages, Lynette still obtained no concrete information about the man. Still, seeing that Jackson was right there, she could not lase her temper, so she could only force herself to smile and asked, “What kind of job are you doing right now, Serenity?” “I’m a delivery rider for a small restaurant,” Serenity answered proudly and without a single trace of embarrassment for her current occupation. Lynette, however, pricked her ears up. Hearing this made her think that Serenity must have fallen from grace and hit rock bottom. After all, she used to be a lawyer, a respected intellectual who was envied by everyone, but now, she was nothing but a humble delivery worker, which was not any better than her previous job as a street sweeper whatsoever. “Didn’t your boyfriend… I mean, didn’t Mr. Jack find you a better job!” As Lynette asked the question, she glanced at the man beside Serenity, who was playfully teasing Serenity’s fingers. Jackson’s fingers were long, slender, and fair. It was an enviably beautiful pair of hands, and now, these hands were lightly touching, squeezing, and pinching Serenity’s fingers. His gestures were both gentle and affectionate to the point that Lynette was almost burning with jealousy, wishing that it was her hands Jackson was playing with instead! “I like my current job just fine,” Serenity replied. The truth was that Clara and everyone else in the restaurant had been treating her very well, and more than that, she was particularly glad to have met the little boy, Yanny. He was always very nice to her. In fact, not only would he smile at her whenever he saw her, but he would even nin to her and hug her very affectionately. ve to protect Because of Yanny’s hearing problems, Serenity always felt particularly sorry for the kid, and it gave her the urge him and take good care of him. Yes, she liked her current working environment very much indeed. At the very least, no one in the restaurant ever discriminated against her or treated her wst because she used to be in prison disdain But when Lynette heard this reply, she quickly concluded that it must be because this guy called fack must not be all that impressive, after all. No decent boyfriend would let his girlfriend do such a menial job as a delivery worker, right? Perhaps all this guy had was good looks. Just then, Serenity’s grandmother woke up, so she instantly rushed into her room. Aunt Theresa helped Grandma to sit up in bed, and a smile bloomed upon the latter’s face as soon as she saw Serenity 2/2 “Oh, Serenity! You’re here! Come here! Come closer to me! I want to take a good look at my granddaughter.” Serenity’s eyes reddened as she walked up to her grandmother’s bed. She wanted to say something, but as soon as she saw the old woman, her nose stung, and she was on the verge of tears. She was all choked up and unable to say anything Grandma lifted a hand and gently stroked Serenity’s hair, saying, “Look at you, you silly girl. You’re going to cry again, aren’t you? What’s the matter? Did someone bully you?”
Chapter 475 I felt like this man would never allow anyone to say a single bad word about Serenity. Envy and jealousy simmered in Lynette’s heart. How had someone like Serenity managed to get such a handsome boyfriend who did not mind that she used to be in prison at all, while she herself, who had gotten married when she was young, had only managed to nab a blacksmith?! Back then, she used to think that marrying a blacksmith was not that bad at all since at the very least, a blacksmith would always have a stable job. Besides, The dowry gifts she had gotten from him were more than generous. But as time went by, she had begun to regret this choice more and more All her trends she used to be close with when she was younger now lived much better lives than her in the city. In fact, most of them had even married men who were white–collar workers, civil servants, and company managers–all soccding so impressive that she began to be embarrassed to admit that her husband was only a blacksmith. Over the past few years, she had often wondered, had she not married so early, then perhaps, she might be married to a man in the city now. At the very least, she would have been able to nab a white–collar worker! “Oh,” Aur: Theresa suddenly interjected, “so hrs your boyfriend, huh?” She then added in a grave tone as if she was giving Serenity a warning, “You should cherish him properly this time, Serenity Back then when you were with that rich and powerful man, you must have realized by now that he was only interested in you because you were new and exciting to him. When the novelty wore off, he post dumped you and left.” Jackson raised his brows and turned to Serenity, asking her, “Rich and powerful man? Who is she talking about? Serenity was speechless because she could guess that Aunt Theresa was referring to Jackson himself. After all, he had very boldly rushed to this small town to save her in front of everyone back then. However, Aunt Theresa had not been there back then as only her uncles were at Felix Faster’s house, so she had never met Jackson before. Unsurprisingly, Serenity then heard her aur: put on a kind face and start to explain, “Here’s what happened–when Serenity was staying here, a rich and powerful man brought so many people here to take Serenity with him. And they were all driving expensive cars too! At the time, I was worried about her because men like that are never honest and he most Exely didn’t truly love her but only wanted to seduce her. I was afraid that she might fall into his trap, but she’s lucky because she’s got a boyfriend like you now.” Serenity Found it very amusing how predictably shameless her aunt and cousin could be! They always tried to bring up unflattering things about her like this, but unfortunately for Aunt Theresa this time, she had no idea that the rich and powerful man she was talking about was right here in front of her! “Really?” Jackson replied in a flat vuice. “Then 1 have to thank you for your concern for Serenity.” He then wrapped his arm around Serenity’s smidler, inched closer to her face, and playfully asked her, “Su, did you fall into his trap?” Serenity could not help but glare at him. He clearly lew that Aunt Theresa was talldag about him, yet he still asked her that question. Besides, did he not realize how intimate they were acting with each other right now in front of her am and cousin? “Stop fooling around,” she muttered. “I’m not fooling around,” he murmured. “I’m being very serious.” | Serenity blushed deeply and only managed to reply in a soft voice, “I’ll tell you when we get home.” “Okay,” Jackson smiled, “we’ll talk about it when we get lane.” He looked at her with eyes dripping with tenderness and aluting affection, the complete opposite of the ice–cold lauks he had given Theresa and Lynette earlier. Seeing this, not only Lynette, but even Theresa, who was already a milille–aged woman, was green with envy when she saw 2/2 how Jackson interacted with Serenity. But all she could do was silently curse at their shamelessness in her heart. As for Lynette, her already existing jealousy now gira more and more intense. Did this man really not care about Serenity’s unsavory past at all? Or was it because be cared about Serenity so much that he was willing to overlook her past? “So, can I call you Jack as well?” Lynette took the intiative to speak to Jackson before introducing herself, “I’m Serenity’s cousin. You can call me Lynette ” “No,” Jackson replied. “You can call me Mr. Jack” As for what he would call her, since he never intended to speak to her much, he did not even bother to respond to the latter half of her sentence at all.

Chapter 474 “Are you done seeing your grandma?” Jackson asked. “She’s still sleeping,” replied Serenity. “I don’t want to disturb her, so I’ll just wait here for now.” As she spoke, she saw her cousin, Lynette, approaching them with two cups of tea, which were then placed in front of her and Jackson. Lynette then offered, “Have some tea, Serenity!” A look of surprise flashed in Serenity’s eyes. All her life, whenever she came here, Lynette had never bothered to offer her any beverages at all. “Say, Serenity, why don’t you introduce this gentleman you’ve brought with you to us?” It was Aunt Theresa who uttered those words, albeit with a tone laced with bitterness. “This is Jack,” said Serenity. “He’s my boyfriend.” Serenity was careful not to reveal Jackson’s full name for fear that her relatives would cause trouble if they found out who he really was. All she wanted now was for her grandmother to live in peace as she neared the end of her life. “Boyfriend?!” Lynette exclaimed in surprise. “Impossible!” Lynette’s tone suggested that she regarded what she had just heard from Serenity as nothing more than a joke, Jackson narrowed his eyes and scowled menacingly at Lynette. She immediately felt like she had been thrown into a freezer- it gave her a chill so unbearably cold that she could feel it in her bones. “What’s so impossible about it?” Jackson asked casually Lynette smiled awkwardly and replied, “N–Nothing… I just never thought that after having been in prison, Serenity would manage to find a boyfriend so soon after she was released. It just seemed… so quick to me.” Those words concealed a sinister intention, of course. Lynette was deliberately trying to bring up the fact that Serenity used to be in prison. After all, she firmly believed that Serenity must have hidden the truth from this man, and that was probably the only reason why he had agreed to be her boyfriend. Still, Serenity naturally saw through Lynette’s ruse. How could she not? Nevertheless, she realized that this was probably the first time she felt no embarrassment at all after being exposed for having been in prison. Perhaps it was because the man beside hier was Jackson and he knew everything about her anyway. The look Jackson gave Lynette turned even more menacing. Even his face was covered with a thin veil of rage. But all this disappeared within a few seconds, and his lips curled into a smile before he answered, “So what? I wished for nothing more than for Serenity to be my girlfriend. In fact, I was in total bliss for a few days after she agreed to date ineTM He actually meant each of those words sincerely. When Serenity had finally agreed to be his girlfriend, he really was happier than be had been in ages! He finally realized how happy a man could be when they finally got the treasure that they had been dreaming of Lynette was dumbfounded. So, Jackson not only knew that Serenity used to be in prison, but he even felt that being her boyfriend was… what he wished for the most! How could anyone feel that way about a woman who had been in prison?! But even if Lynette felt that way, she dared not voice her thights at the moment because although this man called Jack was smiling at her, the look he gave her was actually so frighteningly cold that she was beginning to pet restless.
Chapter 473 1/2 She turned to him with a searching look and asked, “What’s wrong?” “Have you thought about how you’re going to introduce me later?” he asked. She was stunned for a moment but quickly replied, “I’m going to introduce you as my boyfriend, of course.” “Okay,” Jackson smiled gently, “Let’s go, then” The two then got out of the car. Serenity walked up to the door and knocked on it. Not long afterward, the door opened, but the person she was greeted by was not her grandmother. Instead, it was her aunt, Theresa. Theresa’s expression tumed shifty as soon as she recognized Serenity “Oh!” she cried. “So it’s you, Serenity! Why, you’ve even brought along another guest!! As she spoke, she glanced outside, but when she saw a humble car parked outside, her gaze toward Serenity was instantly filled with a trace of mockery, Everyone had assumed that this niece of hers had managed to nab a rich man for herself. After all, Serenity had even been rescued by a chivalrous man from Felix Foster’s house back then! Yet judging from the car parked outside, it appeared that the rumors were false after all since it was definitely not an expensive car. Theresa was sure because she could recognize quite a few logos of those luxury cars And as for the man following behind this niece of hers, while she had to admit that he was indeed a very attractive man, looks meant nothing to a man. He might even be one of those useless pretty men who lacked any substance whatsoever underneath! Besides, this man had most likely not even found out that her niece used to be in prison! “Yes,” said Serenity, “I’m here to see Grandma. How is she?” She had heard earlier that her uncles and aunt took turns taking care of her grandmother. Seeing Aunt Theresa here must mean that it was her tum today. “Your grandmother still isn’t able to eat or sleep that well,” Theresa replied as the three walked into the living room. sleeping in her bedroom right now,” Lynette Blossom, Theresa’s daughter, was sitting in the living room, watching the television while munching on popcom. She was about to throw some cutting comments at Serenity as soon as she saw her, but she was then distracted when she saw Jackson, who was right beside Serenity. Her eyes were instantly fixed on him, and she found it hard to look away. Serenity turned to Jackson and told him, “Why don’t you sit here and wait for me while I go to my grandma’s room to see her? “Okay,” Jackson replied before pulling up a chair and gracefully sitting down. His gestures were bold and unreserved yet without seeming inappropriate or impolite. Serenity then turned and left for her grandmother’s room while Lynette was still aggressively sizing up Jackson. Lynette felt that this man looked like he had just stepped out of a painting even when be just sat quietly there doing nothing. Yet when she tried to talk to him, she only managed to open her mouth, but before she could utter a word, she had to stay quiet because she was intimidated by his impressive aura. It felt as if she could only stare at him from afar but never get any closer to him at all. Meanwhile, Serenity went into her grandmother’s room. She did not see her grandfather there, and only her grandmother was lying in bed and sleeping. It looked like she had gotten even thinner since she had last seen her. As Serenity watched ler frail old grandmother, she had an inexplicable feeling that her grandmother was at the end of her life. Perhaps it was because her grandmother really was old now. No matter how vivacious and full of life the grandmother in her memories was, it was clear now that as the years went by, especially after she had fallen seriously ill, that she probably only had a few years left. Chapter 472 2/2 If her grandmother only had one year left to live, she really had to cherish this year to the fullest! Serenity stayed in the rooms for a while before quietly leaving. She had no wish to disturb her grandmother’s sleep. Besides, she could just wait for her grandmother to wake up outside and talk to her then. When she returned to the living room, she was greeted by the sight of Jackson sitting on the same chair, leisurely scrolling through his plane.
Chapter 472But to her surprise, what she saw next was Jackson ordering his driver to bring over his own car which was worth less than fifty thousand dollars. This startled Serenity.“Didn’t you say you wanted a humble car?Jackson asked.“Well, yeah. I just wanted a more humble car so that it won’t attract too much attention …
Chapter 471No. It’s nothing. I just realized that I haven’t bought the things I wanted to bring with me when I visit Grandma tomorrow.” In truth, she had already bought the pastries, but they had been thrown into the trash by the Hall family’s people. “Oh,” he said, “I’ve bought it for you. It’s on …
