She was already combusting on the spot, but thanks to her fever, she managed not to get seen through. Her current condition had a use, after all. Now, she only hoped that the loud thumping in her chest went unnoticed - nor the unsteady breathing that she kept letting out the whole time.
'Gosh...! How can a man smell so good?! That alone was already bad for my heart. What more if I opened my eyes and saw what he was doing to me...?!' Cassidy bolted out inside her head, still having an internal panic.
'I know that pretending like this is pretty childish of me too, especially since he really isn't doing anything wrong. But still, I don't think I can face him now.'
If Adrian knows that she is already awake, she is certain that the first thing they will talk about is what happened last night. She is afraid that she is still not ready to do anything about it. Then again, she hasn't even registered everything in. It will take a while for the entire truth to sink in.
Not to mention, she doesn't want to deal with such a heavy matter in this hazy state. She might end up saying something she doesn't mean, and she really can't afford to add anything to her headaches.

"Good morning, sleeping beauty..." Asher greeted with a low, smoky tone.
"Or should I say, good evening?"
"H-Huh? It's night already...?" Cassidy asked in surprise and puzzlement.
"More importantly, how did you get in here? Why are you here? When exactly did you come? Why are you so close-"
