Always Been Yours Chapter 1285

Timothy had no idea how his sister had jumped to this topic all of a sudden. He usually had a smart and thoughtful look on his face, but all Tessa saw now was an expression of confusion. She couldn’t help but tease him.

“Look at how happy I am with my family. My son is so adorable, too! Don’t you want a family like this?” she asked. “Furthermore, whenever you see me with Nicholas and Gregory, don’t you ever feel lonely?”

Timothy lowered his head to give her words some thought. Then, he shook his head firmly. “I don’t feel that way.”

Tessa was speechless-she didn’t know how to continue the conversation anymore. Even Gregory couldn’t help but let out a laugh at that point. “You’re like a piece of wood, Uncle Tim.”

“Do you even know what that’s supposed to mean, kid?” Timothy shot Gregory an exasperated glare.

Gregory lifted his chin with a haughty look on his face. “Of course. I know way more than you think!” he insisted. Both Tessa and Timothy chuckled at the comedic look on the child’s face. After joking around for a while, they returned to the topic of Timothy’s marriage.

“Honestly, I think you should give it a try if you meet any decent woman around you, Tessa said. Timothy simply shot her an exasperated stare. “There’s no need to rush, Tessa. What matters now is that you get better. That’s my top priority, Timothy uttered.

Tessa felt a warm sensation in her chest when she heard how much Timothy cared for her. “Well, you shouldn’t just think about me. You have to think about yourself, too,” Tessa replied in a nagging tone. Timothy nodded. “I’ll think about all of that once I’m back from my studies. As of now, you and my career are the two things that matter the most to me,” he uttered.

Tessa could no longer continue the topic of marriage after that, so they simply talked about other matters. While they were chatting, Gregory sat by Tessa’s side the whole time. The siblings had a lot to talk about, and they even shared a hearty lunch at noon.

Tessa started feeling drowsy after lunch. Timothy tucked her into bed before he started doing his work in the room. Tessa woke up about three hours later, only to see Timothy walking into the room with a rather stern look on his face. “What happened? What’s with the look on your face? Did something happen at the company?”

“Are you okay. Uncle Tim?” Gregory was worried as well. “I’m fine, Timothy replied as he walked over and ruffled Gregory’s hair. “It’s not the company. Something came up with Old Mrs. Reinhart, that’s all, he explained.

“What’s up with her?” Tessa knitted her eyebrows as she thought that Amber was pulling one of her tricks again. Timothy could tell that Tessa had misunderstood the situation, so he briefly summarized the contents of the call he just received.

The doctor said that Old Mrs. Reinhart’s condition is deteriorating and that things don’t look good for her. The doctor told me to visit her, he explained.

“Well, you should head over, then. You have to protect yourself, all right? You don’t want that old woman to hurt you when she goes crazy” Tessa’s expression softened after hearing about Amber’s condition. However, she still wanted Timothy to have his guard up.

Timothy nodded before he left. “Take care of your mom, okay?” he reminded Gregory before leaving. It didn’t take long for Timothy to arrive at the hospital, but when he did, he was told that Amber had been sent to the emergency department. Timothy stood around and waited outside for nearly two hours before a doctor walked out. The doctor looked extremely drained and fatigued.

“How is Old Mrs. Reinhart, doctor? Why did her condition worsen all of a sudden?” Timothy asked. “Well, Old Mrs. Reinhart is extremely stubborn. She doesn’t comply with the treatment procedures, and she hides her medication so that she doesn’t have to eat them.

That’s why her condition is worsening,” the doctor explained. The doctor sounded increasingly troubled as he continued speaking. “If she goes on like this, she won’t be able to survive for more than a year,” he uttered.

Timothy felt oddly agitated upon hearing this. “In other words, there’s no use for Old Mrs. Reinhart to stay in the hospital if she’s going to
refuse treatment anyway. It might be better for her to just head home then, the doctor suggested.
