Such a scene is a reminder that this strong-headed and unpredictable wife of his is good at dealing with her stuff, which often turns out to be weird and the least expected. But then, he never thought that taming animals like this was one of her repertoires.
While in the middle of having these thoughts, a cold glass was nudged on his knuckle out of nowhere, making Adrian focus his attention back to the counter. That's when he met the pub owner's thin smile.
"No alcohol. Just a pineapple c.o.c.ktail. In the house..." he offered to which he just blinked in surprise before eventually accepting it and thanking him.
