As soon as he learned about the plane crash and Cassidy's current condition, genuine fear ascended within him. He was completely thrown to sixes and sevens. For the entire ride to the hospital, he couldn't settle down at all.
That's when he also recalled his grandmother's words to him before he got married.
"Adrian, my grandson... Take good care of your wife. You may not be able to see it now, but that young woman possesses an imperceptible, special kind of fire within her - one that can melt a cold heart. She's strong-willed and relentless, never backing down... But even then, she's just as alone as you are in this world. That's why you two have to stay by each other's side no matter what," was what she said to him back when she's still bedridden at the hospital.
His grandmother is the main reason why Adrian decided to just go along with this marriage. He always respects her more than anyone else as the two of them share a particular kind of bond and closeness that made him earn such deference for her.

"You're not supposed to be moving around so much like this! You still haven't recovered completely-"
"Why the heck do you care?! You're the ones who did this to me in the first place!"
At that, a stretch of momentary silence prevails. Charles and the nurses can only gape at her while Adrian blinks rapidly, all of them looking thoroughly surprised and baffled. That's when she suddenly points her finger to her husband and his secretary, brows furrowed in vex.
