He appears to be not pleased, which she guesses is because of what they have agreed on back then. She made a promise that she would not be in contact with any member of the Millicent family - something she swore more to herself than to anyone else. He was the one who helped her get out of their radar, and he made sure that she would never be bothered again.
At that time, Cassidy was only desperate to move on and start anew. For that, she had disregarded even the good things she left behind, including these nephews of hers who have held her dear.
'He's probably thinking that I've kept this a secret from him. In reality, I've just reunited with them today. How distrustful of you, Asher...' Cassidy brooded and sighed, wondering how overprotective he could be.
'Right now, though, I've got to focus more on my dearest darling nephews. Explanations can wait.'
She then returned the look that Asher was giving her with a serious one of her own. And with that, they started a telepathic exchange - with her telling him to back off in the meantime, and him telling her that he is never going to let her off the hook.
