His wife is indeed one wild Amazonian woman.
As long as she wants it - no matter how small or shallow it is, she will do everything she can to get it. This time, she demands to drink more. She continues to try to squirm out of his hold by doing every idea she manages to come up with at her moment of drunken stupor -
Slamming her fists on his back, kicking her feet around in an attempt to reach his abdomen, and even shouting in his ears.
On their way back to the mansion, that's all she ever did. In the end, though, all of her attempts were futile. He dealt with her like how a m.a.t.u.r.e grown-up would to a stubborn toddler, never faltering in his resolve to get her to bed.
"Stupid bossman... You always spoil my fun - telling me what to do all the time," Cassidy grumbled underneath her breath as she crossed her arms and huffed, finally deciding to give up.
"I'm not telling you what to do. I'm giving you no option," Adrian retorted, silently finding the situation a little amusing now.
