She may look like she's coping up with the traumatizing experience somehow, but deep inside, she's being tyrannized by her own fears and worries. After all, even though she's been in front of death's door for a number times now, the fact that she's already used to this kind of situations doesn't make her numb to the terrors they bring.
Like every other normal human, Cassidy feels genuinely petrified and disconcerted. The reason why she often appears to be the opposite of that is because she's better in handling these emotions than most others.
Instead of bawling like there's no tommorow, she'd rather face ahead and aim to rise on her feet again.
"Though that's the case, he's probably still right about me causing problems to everyone around me..." Cassidy brooded silently, stooping her head low and averting her gaze.
"I used to be quite the infamous troublemaker, after all. Whether I like it or not, problems are sure to follow me no matter where I go or what I become - even now that I'm a billionaire's wife."
Indeed, dangers are always looming all around her.
Ever since she was a child, she's a walking disaster. People would steer clear of her because of her thuggish behavior while some would come after her head.

"I understand that you're frustrated, bossman. Perhaps, you're even regretting everything. I know what you're thinking now, and I agree to that too - you really should've just stayed with your family back at the resort and left me behind."
With that, she f.o.r.c.i.b.l.y pulls her wrist out of his grip and turns to walk away. She doesn't hesitate to head towards the dark and soulless road nor spare her companion one last glance.
Adrian, on the other hand, is left frozen still on his spot.
He's struck speechless and unmoving by her uncalled-for confession. For quite some time, he doesn't know how exactly to respond. He's being bombarded with different kinds of rioting emotions that mess up his thoughts and turn them into one huge clutter.
It's not that he wants to make her say all of that, though. He doesn't mean to make her admit what he just called her. In fact, he doesn't see her that way at all.
