She never had such a plucky presentation before nor did she have the guts to challenge this kind of fashion. More surprisingly than that fact, though, he finds himself being dawned upon by a new and stunning realization -
For some reason, he sees this wild and daring style as a lot more appealing than any female apparel out there.
"Hah...! See this, bossman...?" Cassidy bragged as soon as she reached him, hands on her h.i.p.s and c.h.e.s.t puffed out conceitedly.
"I look more awesome than you, don't I?"
"I don't remember trying to compete with you," Adrian flatly retorted, pretending to be unmoved.
"Just admit it~ You probably never saw this side of me too. I can be quite fashionable sometimes, you know, and I really look badass in this-"
