"Alright, kids! We're going on the trip to that ice cream parlor!" she enthused with a grin, making both Hugo and Joshua brighten up in delight.
"B-But wait, Aunt... We're still talking about the dinner, though?" Damien chimed in, not expecting that all it took to change her mind in just a matter of seconds was something as simple as ice cream.
"Sure, I'll go...! Is that fine, bossman?" she then asked and turned to her husband.
"You're certain...?" Adrian replied in surprise and confusion to which she only nodded in reply.
"Well, if you say so. Just to let you know, though - once you step in there, it will be hard to go out."
As his wife only pushes his warning aside with a cheeky smile and a dismissive shrug, he can already tell that she is up to something - time and again.
Though disappointed, her changing her mind like this is fine with him. Besides, she appears like she has everything under control somehow.
He's not going to ruin her fun by being overprotective of her again and reasoning without any basis that her unascertained assassins might come after her. Besides, he will be there with her, and so are their bodyguards.

In any case, Adrian will make sure that Cassidy isn't going to face anyone's wrath there.

'It's a shame that I have to cancel our date at that restaurant."
In reality, Adrian had planned to take Cassidy out to a beachside dinner date instead of going to their family dinner.
