He had no fond memory of his past. However, the winter this year seemed troublesome to him.
Standing by the door of the second floor, Sara greeted the two people downstairs. Little did they know, she heard most of what they had talked about. In her heart, she figured that perhaps the two were too engrossed in their talk that they did not notice that she had already opened the door.
"Why did you get up so early?" Sara rubbed her eyes and walked downstairs. As she did, her slippers made a sound in every step.
James turned around and greeted, "Good morning, Sara."
"Why did you get up so early? Why don't you sleep a little longer?" Jacob asked.
"Well, I woke up suddenly. When I saw that you weren't there, I decided to get up and find you," Sara answered while walking at the stairs. She then walked over towards the two and sat down next to Jacob.
He hugged her affectionately. Even though he was still sad, he felt so much better now that James and Sara were sitting next to him.
Meanwhile, Winnie was preparing their breakfast in the kitchen. She knew the reason why the atmosphere at home was depressing. To be honest, even she felt sad because of it. She was young when Jacob's mother died. Now, she was no longer youthful when Jacob's father passed away.
Time flew fast, and many things had changed along the way. Winnie had gone through a lot and even felt the malice of life. Even though she was already used to it, there were still things that she could not accept.
However, regardless of how sad she felt, the most important thing for her was to do her job well and not cause trouble to Jacob in any way.
Dora was peacefully sleeping. That dog was cleverer than other dogs. One time, it ran to Sara's side and leaned close to her. To everyone's surprise, it returned to its doghouse immediately.
The dog must have sensed that there was something wrong with the atmosphere, so it walked away as soon as it came.
While he was staring blankly at the huge floor-to-ceiling window, Jacob's mouth twitched. Although the breakfast was aromatic and mouth-watering, he was not in the mood to eat.
When he went to the table, he could barely finish two spoonful of food. Unfortunately, he had something important to deal with today. Moreover, he did not want Sara and James to worry about him. If it were not because of them, he would not have eaten breakfast at all.
