Until now, she is secretly connected with Cecile who continues working back in the mansion. She plans to keep her for a while longer. That way, she can have someone who will oversee the progress of all the efforts she has invested in her short-term jobs and take care of any concern or issue that she might have overlooked. Besides, she didn't fulfill her part of the deal yet.
For now, Cassidy needs a break away from everything - but only to confront another huge matter.
"Aira is still at school. She will be back in the afternoon. I'm sure she'll be pleasantly surprised to see the both of you again."
Cassidy and Asher are now having tea together with Josephine in her humble home.
They are exchanging greetings in her living room at the moment. It is a small yet cozy house with a warm and mellow atmosphere - much like the homeowner herself. She appears to be around her eighty's but still capable of walking around for a bit even with her rapidly declining health.
