“What? Too afraid to talk? Are you afraid because my stake is too big?”
“Haha! Don’t feel depressed because you can’t win the five million, let alone cure her disease within an hour!”
Jack looked at Joe disdainfully and sneered, “You are a liar. Hechland is full of liars like you!”
Joe replied calmly, “No… I just felt weird because a random guy suddenly wanted to give me five million dollars.”
As soon as he said this, everyone present froze. Although his tone was calm, his words were extremely annoying and could make anyone furious.
Jack said coldly, “Okay, prove to me you’re capable of winning my money! You have to cure Ms. Hopp in an hour!”
He had been studying psychology for many years and had treated countless patients with various mental illnesses It was rare to see a patient like Angelina. Moreover, it would take a long time and effort to cure such an illness, but Joe said he only needed one hour He would never believe such a thing would actually happen.
“Master Evans, do you…” Gerard cleared his throat and asked.
“Okay, then do as he said!” Joe shrugged and seemed indifferent.
“If I win, I will take that five million. If I lose, I’ll kneel to him and admit that I’m a liar.”
Jack sneered, “It can’t be that simple. If you lose, you also have to admit you’re a liar in the newspapers and let the whole world know about it!”
Joe snapped his fingers and said, “That’s a deal. I’ll go to treat Ms. Hopp immediately, and Mr. Hopp will be the witness of this bet. I’ll see you in one hour.”
“Okay!” Gerard agreed without hesitation.
Natasha looked at Joe coldly. She didn’t believe Joe could handle what Jack failed to do. And she thought Joe agreed to this bet so quickly, probably because he had no other choice and could only keep being pretentious.
“I’m going to treat Ms. Hopp’s disease now. Don’t disturb me within an hour. I’ll come out after the treatment,” Joe said calmly
“No problem!” Gerard quickly agreed.
Carl was a little hesitant. After all, it was somewhat inappropriate for Joe to stay alone in the same room with his younger sister. However, he didn’t dare to say anything more, fearing that Joe would turn around and leave.
“Humph! So pretentious!” Jack sneered.
After an hour, Joe’s true colors would be revealed!
After Joe walked into the room, he closed the curtains and looked at Angelina, who was in a daze.
“Do you often have nightmares recently? You dreamt of your mother, and she always blamed you. That’s why you wanted to suicide, right?”
Angelina looked up and glanced at George. Her face was haggard, and her hair was messy.
“How did you know?” Angelina hadn’t spoken for a long time, and she stuttered when she spoke.
“Someone is secretly cursing you… Besides, you need to know that every parent wants their children to live happily,” Joe sighed.
Angelina fell silent and curled up while hugging her knees.
“Look into my eyes…” Joe said suddenly.
Angelina looked at him and immediately became dazed when she met his gaze.
In Buddhism, some eminent monks once hypnotized their disciples wasn’t the same as a master trying to transfer his power in a novel, but a kind of hypnosis that could transmit the ideas and the Dharma.
Joe was doing the same to Angelina, and his spiritual strength was astounding He had completed the hypnosis by just looking at her.
“Go to sleep… You will see your mother again, and she will tell you something she wants to say.” Joe then tapped Angelina’s forehead.
Angelina fell to the bed and slept soundly.
Joe didn’t do anything else and sat aside quietly with his knees crossed.
Angelina slept while breathing evenly. The longer she slept, the better her complexion became. A trace of darkness that had always lingered between her brows was gradually disappearing.
Joe let out a sigh of relief. As expected, he had enough power to get rid of the illness in her body because he was a master of martial arts.
“I didn’t hear anything inside. Is everything okay?” Carl waited at the door, but he became anxious because the room was too quiet.
“Master Evans must have some unique methods. Don’t be nervous,” Gerard was anxious as well, but he still comforted his son.
When he was talking, he thought about when he and Joe first met. At that time, he didn’t believe Joe at all. But in the end, Joe saved his life.
Natasha was sitting at the side. She wanted to see how Joe would explain to Gerard and Carl if he couldn’t cure Angelina within an hour.
As for Jack, he wasn’t worried at all. He was confident that Joe was pretending to treat Angelina because there was no sound inside.
“That little prison guard is probably staring at Ms. Hopp. He knows nothing about psychology?” Jack sneered in disdain.
Time passed quickly, and it was almost an hour.
Angelina was still asleep in bed, but she couldn’t sleep peacefully. She started to cry as if she had dreamed of something.
“Mom, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t be willful at that time…” She was talking in sleep while crying.
Joe checked the time. When an hour was up, he walked to the window and opened the curtains.
The dazzling sunlight shone into the room, and Angelina was also awakened by the sunlight. When she woke up in a daze, her face was covered in tears.
“Now, do you feel much better?” Joe turned to ask her.
“Thank you…” Angelina looked at Frank, and she finally felt relieved.
She now seemed like a completely different person.
“You’re welcome,” Joe smiled and said lightly.
At this time, Gerard opened the door.
Jack was the first one to rush in, he sneered, “An hour is up. Kneel!”
