Adrian probably s.u.c.k.e.d out her energy when he s.u.c.k.e.d her finger earlier. She felt lazy to the bones. Because of that, she just decided to coop herself up in her bedroom and lock the door to avoid a certain human-hand-harasser from entering.
"Or it's just because I played too much with the boys yesterday...?" she wondered out loud as she continued lying on her bed and burying her face in her pillow.
"Well, I enjoyed it, anyway. Been a while since I played that much."
Cassidy recalled what she and her nephews did after swimming until noon yesterday. They freshened up for a while once they got back in the mansion. Afterwards, they proceeded to play some board games, tag and hide-and-seek. At some points, they just talked idly among themselves.
Looking back at those now, she suddenly starts missing the other children in the orphanage.
"How are they now, I wonder? I don't know how I can contact them. I couldn't look up their contact number at all, and for some reason, nobody knew about the name of that orphanage.

"Then, why are you talking, Ma'am Cassidy?" said a different person, taking her aback and making her sit up on her bed.
"Huh? Cecilia...? Is that you?"
"May I come in? I have to tell you something."
Sensing serious business, she did not spare any more second and went ahead to open the door for her.
As soon as she sees the head maid, the first thing she notices is the phone in her hand. It appeared like she was just on the phone earlier. Going by the solemn look on her face, she could tell that it had something to do with their deal.
