Ice and Fire novel Chapter 275

Joe saw the hate in Jean's eyes, and he felt that she looked very terrified and very determined at the same time.

Joe asked, "What did my Daddy do to you?" He thought to himself, 'Has my Daddy had his revenge on her? Before I was born, what happened between Daddy, Mommy, this Jean and the woman Sally He?'

Jean became even more irate, and said, "You're not qualified to know that."

Joe looked at Jean, and asked, "Do you hate my Daddy and Mommy?"

"Yes, and I also hate you! I hate you because you're Jackson's son!" replied Jean. She wanted to glare at him and hate him, but when she looked at Joe, she realized that she couldn't, and she had no idea why.

Joe looked at her and didn't feel terrific. He calmly added, "So why don't you kill me? Why don't you hurt me?"

Joe knew that a man like his Daddy certainly had enemies, and if they wanted to take their revenge on him, they would naturally come to hurt him first, because he was an easy and effective target.

Jean didn't reply him immediately; instead, she paused for a second, and then coldly said, "I'm not in a hurry. You're just a kid, and anyway I know how to control you."

Joe said, "Yes, yes. You look really smart."

Jean slightly smiled at him, and said, "Of course I'm smarter than you. Do you think that I lived for so long without learning anything on the way?"

Joe said, "Haha, if only I could be half as clever as you are!" But in fact he thought that his aunt was actually very silly, and that she was no match for him in terms of intelligence.

Jean didn't get Joe's implied meaning, and actually thought that Joe was admiring her. She laughed, and said, "You should be a good boy and stay in school. I'm telling you this because not only I, but also other people are watching you."

Joe was astonished, and hastily asked, "Are they all my Daddy's enemies?"

As Jean leaned against the sofa and tried to look elegant, she looked at Joe, and said, "Of course they are! What? Do you really think that your Daddy managed to become so powerful without having a few enemies?"

"But why do they hate my Daddy? My Daddy has done nothing to them, right?" said Joe. He pretended to say this because he wanted to get more information out of Jean. He would then come up with the perfect plan to protect his Daddy and Mommy based on what he learned from her.

Jean echoed his words, "Done nothing to them? You weren't even born when your Daddy hurt the other people!"

Joe continued to play innocent, and said, "But he hasn't told me anything, and my Mommy doesn't know about any of these things!" He acted just like a naive child would.

"Oh, that's because your Mommy is very silly. She has been fooled by your Daddy all along. She doesn't even try to find out the things that your Daddy has done; all that she does is to stay with him all day long, without any idea of what kind of person your Daddy actually is, " replied Jean. It was more than obvious that Jean looked down on Cherry.
