[...Ouch. Joseph's a good actor, but the flinch that echoes through him is real. His shoulders tense, his entire face slackens with surprised pain, and he looks away, charisma charm temporarily disabled.

Don't engage. Change the subject. Move it along.

[It sticks to his throat, but evidently not enough to stay unspoken. Joseph looks back up, meeting Robert's stare. He swallows but stays firm, sitting up straighter. He can't quite think about how to make this about Mary, to switch away from this track. He's too focused on them and their shared pain.]
