As Harper checked Joey's pulse, a deep frown settled on her face. She immediately wrote a prescription and gave it to Nina. "Go back to the Emerald House. You can find all these medicines there. Get them brewed and bring the decoction here quickly," she ordered.

"Yes, My Lady," Nina said and rushed out of the house. After Nina left, Harper fell into deep thought for a while. Then she started performing the acupuncture therapy on Joey to make her come back to her senses. After quite some time of giving Joey the acupuncture therapy, Joey came to her senses. As soon as Joey woke up, her eyes first searched for Alexandra. She was relieved when she found that Alexandra didn't run away. After that, her eyes fell upon Harper.

"What brings you here?" she asked with a frown.

"The physician is on leave. Your maid had come to the Emerald House and told me that you are terribly sick. So I came here to have a look," Harper replied in a nonchalant tone. "Lady Joey, it seems that you are too depressed. That is the reason why you are so badly sick. But I don't quite understand it. You stay in this house all the time and seldom go out. Why are you so depressed? And what are you afraid of?"

"I... I..." Joey stopped speaking. She lowered her head and looked at Alexandra. Then she bit her lower lip and decided to say nothing.

"Are you worried about Alexandra?" Harper said as she shared a glance at Alexandra. "Is it the secret about Alexandra that is bothering you?"

Joey opened her eyes wide and looked frightened. She was too scared to even utter a word.

"Polly, take Lady Alexandra to play in the yard for a while," Harper ordered at once.

"Harper," Alexandra murmured as she looked at Joey cowardly, her eyes filled with fear. Joey closed her eyes and gave a nod for her to go. After that, Alexandra silently followed Polly out.

"When did you find it out?" Joey asked anxiously. Her face had turned ab

Joey asked in a feeble voice. She knew well about her body.

Harper did not know how to reply to this question. She fluttered her eyes and said, "Just take a good rest."

"Can I ask you to do me a favor?" Joey asked in a trembling voice.

"Do you want me to take care of Alexandra?" Harper asked, looking at her pleading eyes.

"Yes!" Joey confirmed in a pleading tone.

"Don't you know that Alexandra is already eight years old? He is a boy and I, being a female, cannot keep him with me all the time. Boys and girls can't stay together. Neither Father nor Grandma would ever allow me to keep him with me," Harper reminded Joey calmly. Taking over Alexandra would be a big trouble for her. Nicole would start disliking and suspecting Harper if she did so. And that was the last thing that Harper wanted to happen to her at the moment.

"You know what would happen to a child who have lost their mother in this mansion. Even though Lady Mavis and your uncle protected you, still you have suffered a lot. If I die, Alexandra would..."

"All right, that's enough. Just take good care of yourself. My maid will send you the decoction very soon. I have to leave now." After finishing her words, Harper got up from the bedside stool, turned around, and left without looking back.
