Shirley came across them playing chess together and became quite angry.
She dragged Josiah downstairs and proceeded to accuse him of impropriety with her daughter and scold him for slacking on the job.
Kara immediately starts arguing with her mother, defending Josiah, saying that she asked him to play chess with her, that he did nothing wrong.
Shirley wants to hear none of it and proceeds to yell at her daughter next, accusing her of impropriety and threatening to cut her off financially. Which upsets Josiah tremendously.
He interrupts and tries to deflect Shirley’s anger back to him. Which worked a little too well because she slapped him. Twice. lol
Kara is upset by this and just walks away, probably to go speak to her father.
Josiah after getting over the shock of being slapped, proceeds to apologize to Shirley promises he’ll stay away from Kara.
This seems to appease Shirley slightly. But her relationship level with Josiah is at “disliked”.
