For what seems like a fraction of eternity, Adrian only remains silent and continues exchanging looks with Cassidy, a rioting storm of emotions starting to stir within him.

Though thrown at a shell-shocked state by how boldly she offered a divorce, he still couldn't help but try to recall why exactly he's holding onto this marriage to begin with. He knew that he didn't need love and wasn't into the idea of getting an heir at this age.

Women are nothing but a bother to him either. In fact, he disliked those type who would try to rob off too much of his time at work for something so meaningless.

"Oh, what's with that look...?" Cassidy chimed in again, smirking knowingly.

"Tempted, are we? Thinking about doing it tomorrow already? You decide when, bossman. I have your back-"

"You gotta be kidding me."

Then, she paused.

For some reason, he seemed to have gotten a lot angrier.

Cassidy could feel the temperature dropping and the air around Adrian thickening. As he musters a tyrannical expression, a deep scowl marring his frame, she can't help but shudder a little in fear.

And that's saying a lot.

Cassidy isn't one to ever fear a fellow human.

It's just like back when they first met at the hospital. That's the first time she saw him revolted. On this one, though, there seems to be an underlying weight to it.

"Don't be too c.o.c.ky only because you lost all your memories for the past few years. You had no idea how much you kept pestering me the whole time."

"What are you rambling about now? Quit guilt tripping me when I'm obviously offering a solution already," she retaliated, both nonplussed and vexed by his uncalled-for reaction.

"A solution? You think it's that easy? Why the heck would I not divorce a pest if I knew I could do it back then?"

Once more, Cassidy found herself caught off guard. Now that she thought about it, she really didn't get his side of the story.

All she focused on was the reason why she clung onto this marriage no matter how cold the people around her were, and that's because her a.d.u.l.t self loved him. She loved him so much that she struggled to cope up with a kind of lifestyle that's not suited for her and dealt with the world even though it did not want her there at all.

But as for his reason, she had no idea at all.

"Why indeed?" Cassidy managed to hurl back, not wanting to falter.

"You wouldn't understand..." Adrian sneered with a conceited smirk.

"But as for why you can't just divorce me like that, I'll make you understand using another reason."
