Adrian has finally regained consciousness - in the most unexpected way possible, that is. At least, for all of those who were aware of how bad his condition was, they were not expecting that he was going to wake up this soon. As for his family members who were on watch, they did not quite anticipate the first thing he would do and say as soon as he opened his eyes.
Edward comes rushing the moment he hears Adrian mumbling something. He then heaves a deep sigh of relief after finding that he is finally awake. Right at that very moment as well, Olivia enters the room with Irish. She has regained consciousness a few days ago, but she still needs to use a wheelchair to move around.
"Olivia! Irish! Adrian is...!" Edward called out to them, much to their surprise.
"Adrian?! Is he finally awake?!" Olivia exclaimed before making her way in their direction.
"Thank goodness... He is awake..." Irish breathed out as she joined their siblings, nearly tearing up in so much relief.

"C-Cassidy is... She is not here..." Olivia trailed off hesitantly, casting down her gaze as she recalled how Cassidy suddenly disappeared the other day and associated it with what Gertrude told her before.
"D-Don't worry, though. Your secretary and bodyguards are already searching for her-"
"S-She's... n-not here? Why?"
Seeing him slacken and droop his head low, they only fall silent once more. His entire face begins to pale from that point on. He appears like he can't believe what's happening.
