Chapter 1165 Not Bear Thinking About
The next day.
Gloria went to work as usual. Suddenly, she received a phone call from Joseph on the way. Gloria had to leave work, told Ted about this, and hurried away.
Gloria arrived at the old house, and Joseph said to her, “You’re finally here. Come and see Karen!”
Joseph looked at her with eyes from which all hatred fled. Instead, he seemed to regard Gloria as a lifesaver.
“What’s the matter?” Gloria frowned. She came to see Karen yesterday, and there was nothing wrong with her. How come she fainted today?
Joseph immediately took Gloria to his bedroom where Karen was still lying unconscious in the bed. There were only three of them in the room.
Joseph said, “She was in low spirits. When we were chatting, she thought of what I had done to you before and scolded me. I didn’t dare to talk back. Somehow, she passed out…”
Joseph avoided Gloria’s eyes. Was it because he was not telling her the truth or he was too embarrassed to do so?

Gloria glanced at Karen and said, “Let’s talk outside.”
Joseph took the hint and felt terrible. If Karen woke up and heard everything, it would be the end of
Joseph gave a monosyllabic reply and glanced at Karen, who showed no signs of waking up. Then he
turned to walk out.
Followed by Gloria, Joseph went to the study. After closing the door, he looked at Gloria eagerly and asked, “What’s going on?”
Gloria stared at Joseph and said, “Karen must remain emotionally stable. When she is in treatment, please keep her happy the whole time. You know, anger delays the healing process. If other diseases arise, the consequences don’t bear thinking about.”
Joseph blanched and nodded. “I got it. I’ll do my best!”
Joseph’s eyes were full of regret. He had just… lost control of his emotions.

Gloria felt a stab of guilt because she made Karen worry all the time…
