He is tall, blonde and handsome - one of her type of guys. But then, she immediately expelled the thought the moment she came up with the assumption that she replaced Adrian for this stranger whose looks could not even rival his. He may be cool and attractive, but he is only half of the god-tier that her brother is - or maybe, make it a little more than half.
"Excuse me, who is this dude?" Irish asked right away, acting far from the fine lady of high society that she was supposed to be.
"Well, well~ What a coincidence. It's the princess," Asher quipped all of the sudden, taking both of them aback.
"Princess? What're you on about?"
"Asher?" Cassidy called out to him, looking as puzzled as her sister-in-law.
"It's just that... She's that Millicent girl, right? The one Charlie had been giving a piggyback ride throughout the whole pursuit in the hotel before? She's like a princess - always being carried around and sleeping the entire thing off."
Irish felt her brow twitch at that, flaring up a bit in annoyance.
She also didn't want to be carried around and remain unconscious that entire time. This guy might also be saying that she liked her circumstances back then while her siblings and their other companions were running all around the place to escape the pursuers. That is quite offensive. What's more, the smug look he's giving her now is starting to tick her off.
"Who is he, Cassidy...?" Irish questioned once more, keeping her calm and cool.
"Please, don't tell me it doesn't concern me. If I happen to learn that you are seeing this man as a replacement of my brother, I don't know what I will-"
"Don't get ahead of yourself. We're not seeing each other," Cassidy cut her off with an exasperated sigh.
"Huh? We aren't...?" Asher muttered with a knowing smirk before putting his arm over her shoulders, feigning incredulity and nonplus.
"I thought for sure we are, darling."
Once again, Irish felt her brow twitch at how cocky Asher was acting.
If Adrian was here, he would definitely punch him square in the jaw once he touched Cassidy like that. It was obvious that he was flirting with her. While she knew that her meddling in their affairs should only be to an extent, she could not help but see this whole thing as shady and concerning.
'Knowing my brother, it will only be a matter of time before he hires detectives to trail after and spy over his wife. If he happens to learn that she is with this dude, he might do something worse than drinking and moping around all day...' Irish pondered, suddenly feeling an internal panic.
'No, Cassidy said that they're not dating. What if this Asher is just trying to force himself on her or something? She isn't pushing him away, which means that they're close at the very least. Then, will it not be a matter of time before she falls for him as well?!
