Up until then, they had no idea what was up with Damien the whole time. After declaring his intention to steal Cassidy away from Adrian, the threat lingered in the air for quite a while. His unsuspecting brothers were supportive of his decision and did not question him no matter how out of the blue it was.
"Me too! Me too! I'll sleep with Aunty every night!" was what the ever ebullient Hugo chimed that time.
"We'll play games and do lots of stuffs...! If Aunt doesn't allow Uncle Bossman to see her, we'll make a fortress in our house and lock him out!" was what Joshua added with a cheeky tone and a smug grin.
As if the three brothers were having a telepathic agreement, they rallied on for the entire half of breakfast time, spoiling their uncle's appetite in the process.
Now that they left, Adrian could groan as much as he could at last.
He knows that it's just part of their mischievous, teasing nature as kids. They are only kids, of course. He should not be too bothered by what they said.
Not to mention, it was just probably their clinginess that was speaking. They had gotten too close and overly dependent on his wife.

"Well, I knew for sure that puberty didn't get me talking to my uncles like that when I was younger."
"Maybe because you're still not over it. Don't worry. It might happen soon-"
"Are you making fun of me?"
"I'm saying my opinion."
Not wanting to stretch out the topic about Damien's cute little threat to the point they might touch the subject about her past, Cassidy decided to distract Adrian away from it.
By this point, she already knows that the best way to talk her husband out of things is to annoy him. He's a short-tempered and prideful man, and he could be imm.a.t.u.r.e at times, considering that he's even this bothered by what his nephew said.
"Were you really that bothered by what Damien told you? You do know that kids can say everything they want these days, right...?" Cassidy contin
